The JBL PartyBox Ultimate, described as the 'party speaker without limits', has been launched in New Zealand. Touted as "bigger, better and bolder than ever", this latest addition to the JBL PartyBox series packs many exciting new features.

JBL's popular PartyBox speakers are well-known for their pumping bass and powerful sound. The newest product, the PartyBox Ultimate, also includes immersive audio from Dolby Atmos and a vivid, synchronised light show, offering an elevated party experience for users.

Michael Sherman, Senior Strategy Manager for JBL New Zealand, is confident that the latest updates to their PartyBox speaker will leave a lasting impression on the brand's dedicated fanbase. He highlights the inclusion of exciting features, such as an immersive light show, Wi-Fi connectivity, automatic self-tuning, and Dolby Atmos technology.

Sherman emphasises JBL's commitment to delivering a top-notch entertainment experience, asserting that wherever the party takes place, JBL provides both impressive sound and entertainment.

Michael Sherman said, "JBL fans will be blown away by the new features we've packed into our latest and best PartyBox speaker, our most immersive light show, along with new technologies that bring real benefits like Wi-Fi connectivity, automatic self-tuning, and Dolby Atmos."

"Wherever the party is, JBL brings the noise and the entertainment!" said Sherman.

The JBL PartyBox Ultimate promises an auditory experience, boasting impressive JBL Original Pro Sound powered by two high-sensitivity mid-range drivers and dual tweeters. This setup allows music enthusiasts to listen to the intricacies of their favourite tracks, even at the highest volumes.

In a space as large as two basketball courts, the PartyBox Ultimate's 9-inch subwoofers will ensure thunderous bass is felt from all corners. Special Dolby Atmos technology creates an auditory environment where the music comes alive around the listener with clarity and depth.

Offering a multi-dimensional and customisable light show, this party speaker is designed to transform any space into the ultimate party venue. With a new starry night effect, cool light trails, dynamic strobes and more, these mesmerising visuals sync up with the music, promising a party for both the ears and eyes.

The PartyBox Ultimate stands out with its Wi-Fi and Bluetooth capabilities, enabling high-definition music streaming while allowing users to take the party with them. Additionally, the speaker will automatically tune itself to its surroundings whenever it's turned on. The built-in interactive JBL PartyPad allows for customised party flow, with three simple fingertip actions, tap, hold, and slide, that unveils DJ-quality sound effects.

The party speaker also features a pair of mic inputs and guitar input, along with karaoke EQ tuning. Users can have peace of mind when the party gets wild thanks to the speaker's IPX4 splashproof feature. Moreover, the easy-to-grip handle and sturdy wheels ensure the party can be taken anywhere. 

The JBL PartyBox Ultimate is priced at NZD $2199.95. It is available now in New Zealand from well-known retailers, including Noel Leeming, Harvey Norman, JB Hi-Fi, PB Tech, Heathcotes, Smiths City, and Mighty Ape, along with JBL's official website.
