JBL 104BT Overview

Offered here in a stylish black matte finish, the JBL 1 Series 104-BT comprises a pair of monitors suitable for both consumer and critical audio referencing. They take the respected design of the One Series 104 and add Bluetooth 5.0 to the mix, so you can stream music from your favorite compatible media player straight to the speakers. Mixing engineers may also benefit from these desktop monitors, as they can now hear what Bluetooth transmission would do to their mixes. 

These monitors employ a coaxial design to give you a smooth representation of the frequency spectrum, so that you have a more accurate picture of the sonic information coming your way. As such, these speakers are useful for home-recording studios, podcasters, video editors who pay attention to sound, and anyone looking for accurate, yet portable monitors.

A 4.5" low-frequency driver and a 0.75" high-frequency driver are situated in a coaxial design, while a 60W amplifier distributes 30W of Class-D power to each speaker. Set your monitoring level with the front-panel volume knob on the master speaker, and you'll find accurate sonic representation at any volume. The frequency response is 60 Hz to 20 kHz, but a low-frequency port ensures presence in the low registers to better judge bass content.

Inputs are made possible through balanced 1/4" jacks, a 3.5mm connection for auxiliary devices, or unbalanced RCA connections. A front-panel headphone jack on the master speaker mutes the speakers and outputs signal directly to your favorite pair of cans. Included with the monitors is a 6.6' monitor extension speaker wire, a 3.5mm-to-RCA audio cable (perfect for stereo receivers, for example), and a power cable.

JBL 104BT Reviews

These speakers are perfect.

I love my new speakers. Excellent sound! They are Just the right size to fit in my studio without dominating the space. Very sturdy and easy set-up.

Not really a sweet spot

The sound quality of these speakers is incredible, but they suffer from trying to be too many different things at once. They don't really work as general listening or computer speakers – the sound is too flat and just nowhere near as immersive as you could get from other options at the same price-point; your ears will be left wanting. They *also* don't really work as hi-fi or monitor speakers, due to the absence of bass (which is very noticeable). I thought these would be a decent substitute for the 305s, which were out of stock, but I was pretty disappointed. I would suggest if you are looking for monitors even at the intro level to just save up for something slightly more expensive.

Great remote work / home office speakers

Note: I am using these as remote work / home office speakers, NOT as studio monitors. The combination of many inputs, compact size, and excellent sound quality make these a great fit for the Zoom world. The BT, RCA and 1/8 inputs mean you can connect multiple devices simultaneously, and the all setting means you can switch seamlessly between the inputs. The sound quality is as good as any of the codecs involved (320k aac for music, plus Zoom of course) as long as you don't need booming bass (I don't).

Great for Laptop

Installed the 104-BT’s 8-6-20. Just regular sound was bassy but I adjusted the EQ lows down a little and increased the highs and the sound quality was GREAT. Very pleased with the purchase.

Great studio reference monitors.

These are some of the best speakers I've ever owned. They are amazing for listening to music casually or using them as serious studio monitors when creating music.

Great Sound

I bought these to replace a set of blown-up KRK Rokit 5s (G2) because the amp sections had died, probably bad caps in the amp section. Replacing the amp sections was economically unfeasible so I found these online and decided to take the plunge. What a pleasant surprise. JBL hits another home run!!!

Great product for the price!

Bought it for my home studio. Great size, easy to install, and quality of sound. Definitely a great purchase!

Beautiful Speakers, great monitor for production

I purchased these because I am in a smaller office with close neighbors. I needed to be able to hear sounds before sending out production spots. These speakers work amazing, loud enough for detail, but not to the point where I am disturbing my neighbors with the constant repitition of editing. I struggled a bit getting them to work, but once all the cables were installed properly, we were in business. LOVE them. Nice job JBL!

I just got these and I love them. They'd work better with my particular setup if they had longer speaker wire connecting them. Any recommendations?
