JBL always brings product which are proper blend of good sound and innovative design. In the portable wireless segment they have Micro, Flip, Charge models which are compact easy to carry and delivers quality sounds too. In the mid size docking system we have seen JBL Onbeat, AirPlay which has fresh and killer looks. With Voyager they have again deliver a product which not only sounds great but with an innovative and attractive design.
Design: With the Voyager JBL attempted to do something different, it is not only a powerful docking system but with just a little push you can pop out a portable speaker which you can use it as a wireless speaker independently. Lookwise it is a mixture of metallic, white and clear glass on the back which gives it a very clean look. It fits in and looks perfect in any kind of ambiance, like in your desktop or bookshelf or at your bedroom or drawing room or under your LED TV. The subwoofer dock is made primarily from clear plastic with painted metal grilles.. A black version is also available, substituting translucent black plastic for the white model’s clear frame. Voyager measures 210 x 127 mm in diameter and height and has a Lithium polymer (7.4V 1000mAh). Weight is about 1.14kg may feel bit bulky for few with its docking system, but you can move it around in your house and office area, and if you plans to move out of your premises then just carry the portable speaker instead.
Features and connectivity:
The 8”-diameter docking station comes with a wall adapter, using magnets to gently lock the puck in place, then expand its audio performance. JBL includes a 3” subwoofer with its own 15 Watts of power, seamlessly transitioning from two-driver to three-driver modes within a second of docking. Frequency response of 20Hz – 20kHz and signal-to-noise ratio of 80 dB. Input connections are Bluetooth and a jack, Bluetooth frequency range of 2.402 GHz-2.480 GHz and Bluetooth transmitter power of 0~4dBm.
Connecting this device with your smartphone, tablet or any other source is very easy, what you just have to do is enable bluetooth on you device and pair with JBL Voyager and you all set to play your media. With Voyager you´ll be getting a combination portable speaker and subwoofer docking system! You can enjoy a powerful home audio docking system and also you can easily undock the portable Bluetooth speaker and enjoy music on the go. The sound quality of the docking system is very room filling and crisp, not much distortion in upper level also but not for those who always like it loud . And if you take out the portable speaker and use it independently, that portable and wireless Bluetooth speaker gives you built-Clear Sound echo and noise-free speakerphone function.
The broadcasting distance of bluetooth goes beyond 20foot easily. In our Audio test we played various bit- rate files with bass heavy ,acoustic, jazz and other popular numbers and this speaker didn’t even disappoint a bit. The audio is slightly better if we use it with the main docking speaker. The battery life last for around 6 hrs in mid range play mode. Both portable units can be recharged using included micro-USB cables, using five white lights to indicate their remaining battery power. The base station also has a USB charging port can use as a multifunction device to charge your smartphone or tablet too.
