What customers say about "Interfaces"
House of Marley No Bounds XL Waterproof Bluetooth Speaker
  • Has the AUX input for 3.5 mm jack.
  • The microUSB port (for charging the speaker). Perfect.
  • Durable ports for connectivity. I recommend.
  • Recommended device! AUX in port works stable.
  • AUX and USB connection. Excellent for me.
JBL Charge 3 Waterproof Portable Bluetooth Speaker
  • The usb allows you to utilise the speaker as a 'fast charging' power bank, which provided my Moto G4 with 3 charges before it was drained completely.
  • Versatile in that it's Bluetooth , can be linked to other speakers, has aux plug for non Bluetooth players and you can use it to charge Other stuff with USB cable.
  • The sound quality is excellent also is ease of use. Connect your device by Bluetooth or hard wire by a 3.5mm audio cable and off you go.
  • The only downside to me is the fact that it uses a micro usb cable, I mean there are still many products that use this but as time goes by I feel that we are heading more towards usb c.
  • Would prefer a better battery life and it should use USB-C to charge now as I would be able to charge it from my phone cable.
