Well, let me tell you that you are lucky because that’s why I’m here. You are reading the right article because that’s what I’m going to do exactly, choose between those two speakers by going through their differences.

But, so you can make the best choice possible for yourself and your friends, you have to make a decision between JBL PartyBox 310 and JBL PartyBox 300, but let me tell you that that won’t be an easy decision to be made because these speakers bring lots of bass and volume, that can fill a room or an outdoor gathering with some amazing bass.

Before getting into the differences, you need to know that these speakers are excellent party speakers, two of the best options available out there.

Sound And Features

If you have been really into sound devices, you might assume that if a device can be loud, that might come as a tiny sacrifice on its sound quality. Well, that’s not the case with these speakers. They can go loud without sacrificing not even a bit of sound quality. Nevertheless, PartyBox 310 due to its EQ setting tweaks, has a tiny bit of advantage and it will sound a little better than JBL PartyBox 300.

But, otherwise, both speakers have an amazing bass ability, so you can enjoy bass-heavy music as well. They also offer slightly recessed mids and highs, making them suitable for any kind of music that your friend might prefer, so when it comes to sound quality, these speakers don’t defer much. 

As for their controls, JBL PartyBox 300 has a simpler layout but that makes it also limited. Both of these speakers have buttons for power, Bluetooth, RGB lights, playback, volume and Bass Boost, but as an addition to those buttons, JBL PartyBox 310 has also dedicated buttons for sound effects, karaoke mode, input selection, bass, treble and echo.

Besides the additional buttons, JBL PartyBox 310 has a companion app, the JBL PartyBox app and that’s something that JBL PartyBox 300 doesn’t have.


When it comes to design, these two speakers are similar at first sight, if you look at them from the upfront, they will look just the same to you, but don’t let that fool you. Both of these speakers have telescopic handles that make it easier for you to carry them around, but what makes it even easier are the two wheels at the back of the JBL PartyBox 310, that PartyBox 300 doesn’t have.

Regardless of the fact that these speakers are mostly made of plastic, they both have excellent build qualities, and I must mention that JBL PartyBox 310 is heavier than the JBL PartyBox 300. What I’m going to say now, might be the deal-breaker for you. The JBL PartyBox 310 does come with an IPX4 rating, which makes it possible for you to take it to parties that are planned to be near pools because it is splashproof, but I can’t say the same thing for JBL PartyBox 300. 

Because they have the dame driver setup, both of these speakers can be placed either horizontally or vertically. 


JBL PartyBox 310 and JBL PartyBox 300 have Bluetooth connectivity and they can be paired with up to two devices at the same time, so you can jump from one-two another pretty quickly, and they also have several wired inputs and outputs, as you can see in the table below. 

Battery Life

Not much difference here, since the two speakers can last up to 18 hours of non-stop use so your party can go on for hours. But even though they have the same battery life, their charging time is different. The JBL PartyBox 310 only needs 3.5 hours., whereas JBL PartyBox 300 needs slightly more time, 5 hours to get fully charged, to be exact.
