When I got this portable speakers for the Nokia 5310, I thought there’ll be no way I can review this unit without the XpressMusic phone. The JBL on Call speaker dock has been out in stores since last year and I thought the speakers were too specific for a phone unit that it wouldn’t get much attention.
Luckily, the sound station has a 3.5″ jack you can hook up to an external source. Most phones don’t support the 3.5″ jack so I thought it would have been better if JBL added an extra 2.5″ adapter with it.
The speaker has a power output of 3 watts on each channel and they’re surprisingly loud with a solid bass.
It’s not very light as one would expect (0.68kg) and since it’s a bit disappointing that it doesn’t have option for batteries so portability is still limited to a meter or two away from the nearest power socket.
Not sure how much it cost but my closest guess is somewhere north of Php3,500.
