JLab isn’t a new company by any means. They have been around for quite sometime. They were mainly focused on in-ear audio solutions but have branched out in the past few years. Releasing some new over the head headphones, waterproof MP3 player headphones and now a line of Bluetooth speakers called “The Crasher”. The speaker comes with a great little tag line on the box, “Hook it up. Rock it out.” When you first open it they added a second one that made us laugh a little, ” Personal Porta-Party.” Yes, I thought it said Porta Potty at first too.
Lets talk technical specs first so we can get those out-of-the-way.

The sound was pretty great as well. It offered a round balance of mids, highs and lows with nothing out powering the other. The bass was definitely present, but I didn’t notice the usual distortion that tends to happen with various music styles. I ran through my usual mix of bands to hear a variety of genres pump through it. All sounded clean and clear and easily filled my garage with sound.
The JLab team put The Crasher to the test and did a comparison video against the Jambox by Jawbone. Take a look and listen for yourself.
You can tell the differenceÂ immediately. The Crasher doesn’t have the washed out over bass driven sound to it. Â At half the price of a Jawbone and with the larger battery inside along with the charging port for your various devices, it is hard to not like this rocking little Bluetooth speaker. If it looks and sounds like something you are after, then by all means hit up the Amazon links below to pick one up.
