JBL PartyBox 300 vs 310 - What is the difference? After 2 years JBL has launched the successor to the JBL PartyBox 300. The JBL PartyBox 310, the models look quite similar. However, there are a few new functions. Let's take a closer look at the two speakers in comparison.

Differences between JBL PartyBox 300 and PartyBox 310

Dimensions and weight

The new PartyBox 310 is slightly larger and therefore also brings a little more weight. At 17.42 kilograms, the new model is about 2 kilograms heavier. The JBL PartyBox 300 weighs 15.84 kilograms.

The dimensions are also slightly different. Overall, however, they are relatively small.
Due to the slightly higher weight, JBL has equipped the PartyBox 310 with transport wheels. Together with the extendable handle, the new PartyBox can be pulled like a suitcase. The PartyBox 300 does not offer this feature.

Battery life

The battery life is identical for both devices with up to 18 hours. However, the battery life can vary significantly depending on the type of use. Volume and other settings have a great influence on the battery life.

However, the JBL PartyBox 310 takes a little less time to charge. Here you only need 3.5 hours instead of 5 hours as with the JBL PartyBox 300. Both devices are charged via a power cord.
Unlike its predecessor, the JBL PartyBox 310 is IPX4 certified. This protects the speaker against splash water. The device is therefore officially not waterproof. For use at the pool or in light rain, however, this should normally be sufficient.

DJ and Karaoke

The DJ function was previously only known from the JBL PartyBox 1000. This is the most expensive and largest PartyBox in the series, as you can see in our comparison of the JBL PartyBox series.

Now you will find buttons on the top of the PartyBox to adjust the bass and other settings for the DJ function. These buttons can easily be mistaken for the control of the music output. However, the bass can only be controlled using JBL Bass Boost.

In addition to the DJ function, the JBL PartyBox 310 can also be connected to a JBL app. This app is specially designed for the DJ functions. This app currently only works with JBL PartyBox 310.

Light show

Like the JBL PartyBox 300, the JBL PartyBox 310 also has a light show. In the new version, however, the lights have been better attached, so that the light show is shown to its best advantage. The light show can also be deactivated.

Which PartyBox is better?

In comparison, the JBL PartyBox 310* has considerably more functions. But the JBL PartyBox 300* is slightly cheaper.

In my opinion the functions are worth the extra charge. But only if you need them. That might sound quite logical. But by this I mean that the functions are not sold for a too high price.

The better transport function definitely offers an advantage in my eyes. Also the app control of the PartyBox 310* is practical in any case. In general the PartyBox 310 has been optimized in handling and small details. This includes for example the light show, which works better by adjusting the LEDs.

The weight and dimensions of the devices are very similar, so I would not go by either criteria.
