JBL has announced the BassPro Go, a “hybrid automobile subwoofer and portable speaker” that would’ve been groundbreaking a decade ago. The BassPro Go can connect to your car’s sound system and operate as a standalone 8-inch subwoofer to add some probably-not-that-great bass to your car.
But when you’re ready to leave your car you can detach the speaker and use it over Bluetooth with up to 15 hours of playback time. Seems pretty basic right? Well given that it’ll cost you $600 to get your hands on the BassPro Go, it gets a bit more ridiculous.
Let’s be clear, no Bluetooth speaker should cost $600. Period. I don’t even know why I’m still typing. The JBL BassPro Go will be available this summer. Have a good day.
