JBL Link 20 Details
The JBL Link 20 is a mid-size wireless speaker. It’s probably too big to just keep in your rucksack daily, “just in case” it’s needed, but is still easily small enough to carry around the house. It weighs 960g: not heavy.
This is a hybrid speaker of sorts. The Google Home assistant is its most obvious feature, something you’ll almost certainly use solely at home. But the device also has the design, Bluetooth streaming, and integrated battery needed for a good all-terrain speaker.
Similar to the UE Megaboom, the JBL Link 20’s top and bottom are rubbery plastic, the sides a curved column topped with tough nylon weave.
This is more resilient than the painted aluminum grilles of some alternatives. While we don’t tend to torture the products we review, the Link 20 feels like it could withstand some rough treatment and the odd drop off a table.
