    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Buy but be aware!! The EON615 are great sounding speakers but fail in so many ways!! Cons #1 The construction on these speakers is pour to say the least. #2 The sound quality is ok in main setting but lack that great JBL sound. #3 JBL failed to deliver the EON app it promised by Nov. 1st 2014. #4 NO RCA. Only XLR and 1/4 inputs. Pros #1 JBL Delivered a better EON with features like 2 inputs with selectable gain and a main gain. #2 M10 Rig Points. #3 Nice looks. All black with nice monitor positions on both sides. #4 Very light weight. All in all the JBL EON 615 Is a nice JBL EON. But I would expect more for JBL and the EON line. There are better EON's series that JBL ofers right now. So if you want a high powered speaker with minimal features and no app to control them. Then buy the JBL EON615. If you can I would buy the JBL PRX715M speakers!! A way better speaker for the money!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Downgrade in the EON series This is a downgrade in the EON speakers. The speaker before this is the 515XT which is a super speaker. But they stopped making those and now they make these, and it's a downgrade. First of all, the SPL is 127. It used to be 132. Why would they do that? Secondly, it's a little bit heavier. Not by much, but just a little bit. Why would they do that? Third, it doesn't seem to be made of the same good quality as the other speaker. It seems to be made of cheap or low quality. It doesn't seem to be as tough or as durable. They used to advertise the previous speaker as durable but not these ones. Why would they make it less durable? Fourth, there are less channels in the back of the speaker. Fifth, there are less options when it comes to changing the sound in the back of the speaker. Sixth, there are less input options in the back of the speaker. And overall, this is a downgrade in the EON speakers. Sure, it has more watts. But that isn't enough to make this a better EON then the previous. Sure it has bluetooth techology. But do most people use that? And is it that big of a deal to give incentive to buy the speaker? Sure it has a design inside that makes the sound better. But the older EON was fine the way it was and whatever difference this has, isn't enough because overall this is a downgrade in the EON series.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from EON615 more than just a pair of good sounding PA speakers The JBL EON 600 series represents a new generation of self-powered speakers that redefines portability and price performance ratio. Two aspects that stands out immediately after listening to these speakers. The first aspect is, they sound amazingly good, detailed & refined. In fact, given a HQ signal input, these JBL 615 sounds more like a Reference Monitor speaker than a PA speaker. The higher the SQ from the source input, the more impressive the EON615 is in resolving the details. I tested these EON615 using a direct feed from an APOGEE DAC and immediately I took notice on how good sounding these EON615 are. It's nothing like one would expect from a typical PA speaker, which excels in producing a high sound pressure output, but skims in the SQ department. More importantly is how even and efficient the high-frequency horn and low-frequency wave-guide technology distributes the sound energy over the 90 x 60 degrees of coverage area. Whether a listener is on or off-axis, they hear a well-balanced sound with incredible detail. The position of the listener does not seem to matter with these EON615. And this feature itself, is one very impressive achievement from any PA product by JBL, which makes this range of EON 600 speakers quite unique! With the seamless match and integration of the coverage between the HF & LF range, no longer would the audio sweet-spot be limited to a just a small restricted area. In fact, with the evenness of the audio frequency spectrum distribution, combined with the generous 90 x 60 degree coverage pattern, it doesn't take too many EON615 to provide full audio coverage for most events, whilst ensuring optimal SQ for each audience without compromise. The second aspect is, considering a speaker equipped with a 15 woofer, how compact and portable the EON615 is. The EON615 weigh in under 20kg, which is no more than a check-in luggage. Making them very manageable by a single person without breaking one's back during transport. The manoeuvrability is further complimented by the 4 well-placed handles on the EON's enclosure. And more impressively, is the compact dimension of the EON615. I was astonished to find that the height, width and footprint of a speaker with 15 woofer to approximate the torso of a human body, allowing them to fit perfectly into the rear seats of a 3-door hatch back, without the need to fold down any seats, yet be secured with bucked seat-belts. How good is that? The manageable weight, when combined with compact dimension brings new meaning to how portable the EON615 is, allowing them to be transported easily and quickly by practically any type of vehicle, without the need to resort to enlisting/hiring a van or truck to transport these speakers. The EON615 is probably one of the most compact, light-weight & transportable HQ speakers in the market. Typical PA speakers that features a 15 bass would normally weigh around 80-100lbs and would require a van or trucks to transport. The EON615 reaches a new level of portability for 15 system. For business application, I was initially considering the EON206 as a highly portable sound reinforcement for presentation events until I came across the EON615. The EON206 would be ideal if sound reinforcement is mainly for speech. But if the speaker is to double as music reinforcement, the EON206 won't be as good match to the EON615 that is equipped with a 15 bass, which allows the unit to operate quite competently without the need of a subwoofer. And with EON615's great bass response, which is both clean and extended, it is more than capable of holding its ground for most event, be it with speech or music content, when the emphasis is to deliver the best sound quality possible for any given application. And in terms of deployment speed, the EON615 may actually be a tad quicker to setup, with less cables to untangle. And the fact that they are so easy to pop on to speaker stands by just a single person, makes the EON615 even more ideal in terms of setup ease. I am no stranger to the JBL sound. In fact coming from a high-end audio background, I come to appreciate the JBL sound from their Project K2 speakers, which represents some of the best sounding speakers currently available to the consumer audio market. To know how much research and development effort JBL has invested in their transducer technology and horn design, made the EON615 looks even more appealing. There is no question when it comes to compressor driver design, JBL is the leader in the industry, with decades of technological innovation. In terms of SQ on compression driver, from the high-end audio perspective, there is only one other company from Japan that competes on equal grounds with JBL: TAD from Pioneer. So if one is looking for the best sounding speaker that is based on compression-driver technology, look no further than these twobecause a speaker only sounds as good as its driver is capable of delivering. From the complex serpentine coherent wave phase-plug design, to the exotic material used in compressor driver diaphragm, to the advanced contours and resilient materials (eg. ballistic JBL COMP-II) used in constructing the horns, JBL is head and shoulders more advanced than any other speaker manufacturers, when it comes to horn-loaded compression driver technology. Witness the evolution of the the horn design from JBL. The Asymmetric horn design featuring Defined Directivity first debuted on the Project Everest DD55000 shocked the audio world with the advanced horn design to deliver widen audio sweet spot when combined with compressor driver technology. This carried on with the Project K2 S9500, S5500, S9800, Project Everest DD66000, DD67000 bi-radial horn designs. And more recently, with the arrival of the JBL M2 Master Reference Monitor, introducing a new-generation of horn profile designs, utilising Image Control Waveguide. In comparison, the horn profile design from other manufacturers looks very outdated and a few generations behind. Another area of particular interest is JBL's choice of material used in constructing the ideal diaphragm for compression drivers, which progressed from Aluminium, Titanium, Beryillum and now to Polymer. For high-end audiophiles who are familiar with headphone diaphragm designs and finding the ideal material of choice, an analogy would be to compare this to SONY's innovative use of Sapphire, Diamond, Bio-cellulose, Liquid-Crystal Polymer and now to Aluminium-coated Liquid-Cyrstal Polymer (found in the XBA-Z5). It would be difficult not to spot the pattern of convergence with manufacturers shifting from the traditional light-weight, yet stiff material towords those with much improved internal damping characteristics. In this regards, we witness the latest trend with the JBL D2 drivers (D2340K), which introduced polymer as the new generation of ideal diaphragm material, found in the latest compression driver designs. Yet another area that differentiates JBL from its competitor is the company's evolution with adopting annular design in compression driver diaphragm, which when compared to traditional dome-shaped design, is not subjected to the typical break-up modes at high excursions, hence allowing a much higher output with drastically lowered distortion. Not only do we see these advanced designs in the cutting-edge JBL D2 drivers, but we are starting to see how these advanced technologies being trickled down to the much more affordable EON range, utilizing the annular polymer compression drivers. To potential buyers of the EON615, who are aware of the above JBL innovations and how these are being incorporated into the new EON 600 series, the choice is pretty clear. Before purchasing the EON615, whilst researching, I came across some Youtube reviews on the EON615, stating about its low SPL output when compared to other similar PA speaker. This information is misleading to say the least if one understands that one of the prime function of the horn, is to evenly spread the energy from the compression driver over the entire coverage area across its frequency response. If the horn is doing a great job, the SPL measured on and off axis should be identical across the high-freqency range. That is exactly what one would expect with this generation of EON horn designs that incorporates the special fluting in its wave guide technology. Even when compared to the previous generation of EON that does NOT feature the control wave guide technology, despite having more capable drivers, the EON600 would have a slightly lower max SPL when measured on-axis because the new horn profile design features a more even spread of sound pressure across the on & off axis. It's like spreading jam over toast, one can spread it evenly across the entire area OR not so with just a splash in the centre, of course the centre would be thick with jam..until one looks at the corner. As most would understand, as the frequency increases, it becomes more directional and narrows up in its projection, a phenomenon commonly known as beaming. In fact, high SPL measurement on-axis (and low SPL off-axis measurement) would be one of the symptoms when a speaker with poor horn design exhibits beaming characteristics, when the horn design fails to distribute the energy across its coverage range evenly across the frequency spectrum. A more comprehensive measurement would be to measure the impulse response of the drivers via low-latency FIR/IIR digital signal processing; see how DEQX does it in the proper manner. This same beaming issue exacerbates with larger diameter bass driver, particularly as cross-over frequency increases, which in this case 1800Hz, a 15 driver would commonly exhibit a high degree of beaming characteristics at this frequency, preventing the driver from delivering the ideal 90 x 60 degrees coverage, which is what happens to most 15 driver designs, making them sound muddy. This is where the specially shaped low-frequency waveguide in the EON615 serves its unique purpose of redistributing the LF energy evenly as the frequency increases and approaches the cross-over frequency. The EON615 is not with flaws. There is a low-level white noise from the speakers when the unit is powered on when observed at close distance and at a quiet environment. The level of white noise does not appear to alter in amplitude with strength of input signal nor gain in output volume. This is by no means objectionable, but none the less serves as room for improvement. But for the intended purpose as PA speakers or even as monitor speakers, this is no real issue, as the white noise is subdued. And the white noise is pretty much not noticeable when the EON are in operation when there is a signal feed. As to how these EON615 can be sold at such an affordable price, yet compassing so much advanced features found in the more advanced modelsis a puzzle! This really puts these EON615 speakers in a very high performance category making them excellent value for money.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from So let down by this speaker So it's heavier then the older one. The SPL is lower then the older one. It's not as loud. The low end is not as good. It seems cheap. And it's not as durable. Why did JBL make this? Were they trying to get customers to stop buying the JBL? If you need an ok speaker that is not too expensive this might be good. But if you love the EON before this, then you may not like this speaker.
