When it says that the speaker and mic are paired at the factory, does that include the RF channel or does the speaker do a scan for open channels every time, and push the mic to an open channel when it's turned on?

Asked by: Trizzle
By default, the wireless microphone or our JBL PartyBox On-The-Go comes pre-paired with the speaker at factory. There is only a designated frequency for the wireless microphone and the speaker.

Can you connect this to a TV?

Asked by: monocledlady
Our JBL Partybox On The Go is designed for music streaming while connected to phones, tablets, and laptops. It's not recommended that our portable Bluetooth speakers would be used to connect to a TV. These speakers are not equipped with apt-X-HD low latency audio codec and may cause audio-video delays but as an alternative, you may use an aux cable to connect the speakers to the TV to prevent audio delays.

How to update firmware

Asked by: Ejzapata
Thanks for your inquiry. To update the Firmware of your JBL PartyBox On-The-Go, you will need a USB memory stick with at least 50Mb of available storage capacity and the AC power cord of the unit. Then, install the software upgrade located under "Documents and Downloads", named "Firmware Update for Partybox On-the-Go Version 38, 03/22/2022". You will need to UNZIP the software ZIP file “PBG_FW_202009100_Ver38_M_159.bin” onto the main root directory of the USB memory stick. The actual software file “PBG_FW_202009100_Ver38_M_159.bin” must be on the main root directory of your USB memory stick. We recommend that there be no other files in the main “root” directory of the USB memory stick. If the root directory does contain any existing files, we recommend that you either remove them or save them to a separate folder on the memory stick. If you need more help, please contact our customer support.

Can i connect with a microphone headset for yoga classes ?

Asked by: michib
The JBL Partybox On-The-Go does not have the ability to connect to headsets. The speaker will act like a audio target device (just like your headphones), rather than a source (like your phone which is playing music), meaning both your headset and speaker will be expecting an audio source to connect to them.

hi, can the jbl party box on the go connect with another one without wires? only via bluetooth? can i use the mic for both at the same time? thanks

Asked by: Frediooooo
Our JBL PartyBox On-The-Go can connect wirelessly via TWS. To do this, hold the Bluetooth button on both speakers simultaneously for more than 5 seconds. The speaker that is connected first to the source device will automatically be the left channel. If you connect an instrument or microphone to one Partybox speaker while using TWS, the audio will only play through the speaker where the microphone or instrument is connected/ paired. You will not hear the instrument or microphone in both speakers while in TWS.
