When writing a comparison article, I always compare the product’s design and built quality; nothing will be different this time. First and foremost, let me say that the JBL Partybox 310 has a unique look and design. It is equipped with a telescopic handle for better portability; worth mentioning is the fact that it is a little bit bigger and heavy, but nothing you can’t handle. The speaker has RGB lights that give the party effect to the speaker, and you can change the color of the lights by pressing the button or using the companion application. The JBL Partybox 310 is IPX4 rated, which means it is water-resistant and splash-resistant. The speaker’s overall built quality is excellent, mainly made of sturdy plastic and a metal grill.

Battery Life

The JBL Partybox 310 and JBL Partybox 300 have a battery life of up to 18 hours which is amazing, but what makes the difference, in this case, is the charging time of these speakers. The JBL Partybox 310 needs only 3 hours to fully charge, while the JBL Partybox 300 requires 5 hours of charging. So, if you are looking for a winner regarding battery life, I would easily state that the JBL Partybox 310 is the victor.


Connectivity is an important factor that we should always pay attention to. The JBL Partybox 310 has many wired options for connection, such as 12v DC in port, AUx input, mic, and guitar input. There is also a limited USB port connection. Worth mentioning is that this speaker also supports Bluetooth connection which means that you can connect it with any device that also supports this type of connection.

The JBL Partybox 300 has almost the same connection inputs as the JBL Partybox 310. It has an AUX input with a TRS jack and a USB Type-A port, and of course, there is a mic and guitar 2RCA input so you can easily connect your microphone or guitar and enjoy your performance. Bluetooth connection is also available, which is a nice feature to have, always.

Sound Quality

What matters is the sound quality, and I guess all of you agree with this opinion of mine. Let’s see what these speakers have to offer regarding sound quality. The JBL Partybox 310 has a fantastic frequency response and bass accuracy. This speaker will provide a dynamic sound, which is why it is called a Partybox.

The speaker is equipped with a graphic EQ, which you can use to customize the sound according to your demands. If you are a fan of bass, then nothing to worry about since it has the Bass boost feature, which indicates that you can add more bass to your speaker. It is worth mentioning that this speaker’s overall sound quality is excellent, and it can also play stereo content. You will notice a louder sound when you connect this speaker to a power source.

Now it is time for JBL Partybox 300. The sound quality of this speaker is excellent as well. To be honest, I don’t have anything special to mention about their sound quality because they both have the same frequency response and similar sound accuracy, but there is always something that sets them apart. This speaker’s connection to a power source will be louder than expected. Let me mention that it lacks low bass, but there is nothing to worry about since the speaker has the Bass Boost EQ setting, which will increase the speaker’s bass level.

Final Words

All and all, it can be confusing choosing a winner between these two similar speakers. JBL did a great job furnishing both speakers and giving them pretty cool features.

However, in my opinion, I think the 310 Partybox is the most ideal choice. From the above-mentioned differences and features, I think you’ll come to a conclusion similar to mine as well.
