Why do we recommend The Infinity (JBL) Fuze 100 Wireless Speaker?

Infinity (JBL) Fuze 100 Portable Wireless Bluetooth Speaker 1

Versatile Audio Output: Let’s start by discussing the dual equaliser, which is one of the most significant features that led us to rank this Bluetooth speaker among the best in India. With this Dual EQ, you can choose between an audio configuration with greater bass and one that is more evenly balanced. Therefore, you’ll be able to fine-tune this speaker even further for the music you enjoy listening to and have a backup mode in case you don’t like the sound.

Good Quality In Both Modes: Both options provided by the Dual EQ function sound excellent. The only exception is if you play low-bass music in enhanced bass mode. If you do this, the speaker will produce unnecessary bass, drowning out the voices and instrumentals.

Long Battery Life: Though fairly inexpensive, this speaker will last you a long time on a single charge. You can get 9 hours of playback at 50% volume, which is more than most people need. At higher volumes, you’d probably get like 8 hours, but that’s the norm for all other Bluetooth speakers that boast a similar battery life.

Made To Last With A Rugged Fabric Exterior And Waterproofed: The Infinity (JBL) Fuze 100 speaker is one of the most durable and long-lasting Bluetooth speakers you can buy. The entire body is wrapped in a rugged fabric that can withstand a fair amount of abuse, and it’s also IPX7 waterproof. So, you don’t have to worry about spills or getting caught in the rain.

Connects And Syncs With Another Fuze 100 Speaker: The Infinity (JBL) Fuze 100 speaker is designed to be used in pairs. So, you can buy two and connect them wirelessly for a richer and more immersive sound. You can also use one as a left channel and the other as a right channel for a true stereo experience.

Comes With A Handy Speakerphone Feature: The speakerphone feature is always useful. It’s not going to replace your phone, but it’s good for making calls in a pinch or if you’re in a situation where it’s not convenient to use your phone. Even better, we noticed that the noise cancellation in the mic was also decent- it doesn’t catch too many external sounds.

Take Notes

Odd Behaviour On Low Charge: We’re not entirely sure if this is an intended design choice or a bug, but the Infinity (JBL) Fuze 100 speaker behaves oddly when running low on charge. The volume automatically lowers itself, and you won’t be able to increase it again until the speaker is back above 80% charge.

Note: The only official model from JBL is the Fuze 100. However, some sites list the product as “Fuze 99”. There’s no such model; it’s just a different name for the Fuze 100, with the exact design, specifications, and performance.

Verdict

You’re probably pleasantly surprised like we were. For one, the speaker doesn’t have that much of a flaw. Although, that’s to be expected, considering it’s a basic option. The feature list, however, is what truly made us appreciate this speaker. You won’t even get half of all these things in other speakers of the same price range, much less any decent durability. It has a lot to offer for the latter, too- it passed our endurance tests with flying colours. Whether you need a secondary driver or a new primary Bluetooth speaker in general, this one is definitely a solid choice.
