I was worried the 500 wouldn't sound as good as the Google Max, but I think it's very similar. Definitely one of the top 3 of all smart speakers.

Poor sound quality

I did not care for this speaker the sound quality was not at all what I would expect from a speaker that cost almost 500 dollars. The bass was to heavy, and almost murky sounding, and the design of the speaker gives you the impression that the sound would be widely dispersed but it's very directional. If you are standing on the side its like stepping out of the stream of sound itself.

great features

Hello, please can you tell me if I can connect the JBL Link 500 with BoomBox?

Asked by: Robert1984
Our JBL Link 500 uses Google Home to connect and pair to other speakers of the same model while our JBL Boombox uses our JBL Connect + feature with our JBL Connect app. It's not possible to pair both speakers as they're not compatible with each other.
