JBL Xtreme – For Serious Sound Lovers


The JBL Xtreme is the ultimate portable Bluetooth speaker that delivers earth-shaking, powerful stereo sound. TheJBL Xtremeis tough and splashproof and is the ideal speaker to play loud bass-heavy audio anywhere from the living room to the backyard party. It has a 10,000 mAh battery that can last 15 hours. Add in the ability to charge your devices while on blast and you’ve got our favorite rugged speaker of 2015. The JBL Xtreme is available in blue, black, or red for $300.


JBL Flip 3 – The Ultimate Stocking Stuffer


But, not all on-the-go speakers need to go big. The Flip 3 is great for adventures of the more urban sort, at a size small enough to fit inside a purse. Not too much has been sacrificed in the downsizing, though – the audio is still booming, the battery life sits at 10 hours, and it can survive a day by the pool just as well as the Xtreme. The Flip 3however is a better budget buy at $100, and that makes it a great stocking stuffer.


JBL Pulse 2 – For Those Who Love Being the Life of the Party

Need to get something for the party animal of the family? The original JBL Pulse got the party started with big sound and flashing LED lights that moved to the music for 10 straight hours. So, how did JBL improve on that? More sound, more lights! And, when it’s not the life of the party, those LED lights can be made to automatically match the color of the wall. The JBL Pulse 2 is available now for $200.


JBL Everest Elite 700 – Experience the Next Generation of Wireless


The NEW JBL EVEREST™ ELITE 700 headphone offers the most innovative and exclusive set of revolutionary features available in wireless headphones.

The JBL Everest Elite 700 headphones are available now for $300.


JBL Reflect Mini BT – For Fitness Buffs


These earphones check all the boxes for fitness enthusiasts and then makes the checklist longer. Not only are they wireless, sweat-resistant, and equipped with ear hooks for stability, the cable connecting the two earbuds is reflective, ideal for nighttime runners and cyclists. Plus, the eight-hour battery life ensures that these earbuds can outlast any workout session. The JBL Reflect Mini BT earphones are priced at $100.


AKG N60NC – The Perfect Travel Companion


Luxurious design meets Grammy-award winning AKG sound with the N60 NC, that is created especially for travelers. The luxurious AKG N60 NC contains best in class noise cancellation technology that actively minimizes ambient noise encountered on everything from planes to trains. The quality of the sound is extremely high, due to the experienced team of AKG. At the same time, the headphone is a stylish accessory thanks to its headband made of real leather and the ear cups made of premium aluminum with a coating of memory foam. Thanks to that memory foam, and its lightweight form factor, the N60NC is one of the most comfortable headphones we’ve ever used. The AKG N60NC headphones are currently available and priced at $250.
