Just start with “Ok Google” – a simple voice request triggers your JBL Link 500 to play music, podcasts or radio from services like Google Play Music, Spotify, Pandora and more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Link 500 - Superior sound, sufficient Google Home The JBL Link 500 combines JBL's exceptional sound engineering with Google's home management tools. At first glance, this thing is huge! See the pictures. It is 14 1/2" x 7 5/8" x 6 1/8" and weighs almost 8 pounds. The Link 500 produces full bodied sound with the high fidelity that is expected of JBL. The only fault of the Link is Google Home. Google Home functions well, but it takes some getting used to. There are plenty of commands to use, but there is not a book included listing them. So, you have to do your own homework to figure out how to make the most of your Link 500 with Google Home. The voice recognition is good, but you have to speak loudly and clearly to get its attention. Overall, since Google Home could be updated to have better commands and interaction, and the sound quality is excellent, I highly recommend the JBL Link 500.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You have to get one! My first impression upon taking the Link 500 out of the box was how large it is - it is bigger than it looks in pictures and is fairly hefty. That was a good sign for me! I placed the speaker on a table behind one of the den chairs - so it is essentially out of sight (a wife requirement). Setting it up from there was easy. I plugged it in, downloaded the Google Home app*, followed the app's instructions, and that was it. It only took 2 or 3 minutes. (*Actually, I had already downloaded the Google Home app for use with a Chromecast Audio I had purchased previously.) Being an audio guy, the first thing I wanted to do was play some music. I was very happy to find that the Link 500 has Spotify built-in, especially since that is my streaming service of choice! I started out easy by asking Google to play “some Diana Krall” while I was cooking dinner. No problems there. I then followed that command by asking it to play a specific song – Midnight Rider – off of the Gregg Allman album Laid Back. The Link 500 handled that and similar request easily. The sound is very, very nice. I had previously experienced this kind sound in my den with some of my small to midsized bookshelf speakers (including JBL's). The Link 500 replaced those speakers and went on to fill my large living room (400 sq ft) with excellent sound without taking up near as much space. The music playing filled the den with clear sound at even low volumes without being overbearing. The bass was smooth and the highs were crisp and clear without distortion. I had previously relied on a ZAGG Origin Portable Bluetooth Speaker to stream music in the den and its smaller version in the master bathroom. Those speakers are not voice activated however and they do not offer a mobile interface. Listening to the Link 500 and the larger ZAGG for ten minutes, I realized that I was more at ease with the sound produced by the Link 500. Even the most over-the-top songs (think Brass Monkey by the Beastie Boys) were enjoyable even at high volume. The Link 500 is the first voice activated speaker I’ve used. The only thing that comes close was Siri on my iPhone. I thought that speaking to the speaker would be difficult as, in my limited experience, voice activated products leave a lot to be desired. That was not a problem with the Link 500. After its initial voice training, it recognized my “Hey Google” commands every time – whether shouted over the railing upstairs to almost whispering it in the same room. I was impressed! Other than my requests to play specific pieces of music, I typically used the built-in Google Assistant to make requests about the weather and to set timers. I did put it through its paces by requesting such things as: the temperature of the dark side of Mercury, the distance to a certain address in a distant city and even the meaning of the initials JBL – which it answered perfectly – James Bullough Lansing! To sum up, I find that the JBL Link 500 is a good-looking speaker and is very simple to operate. It also has excellent built in capabilities and when it is playing music it is really impressive. In other words, you have to get one! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow! Was a little worried when we got the Link 500 and there were virtually no instructions. I am no spring chicken (as can be noted by using that phrase), but was able to download the Google home app and have music playing within 5 minutes of opening the box! Yes, it is that easy. You can do everything from get the weather report to hear what you have scheduled on your calendar for the day, and much more! Was able to connect my TV via Bluetooth easily. I am truly amazed at the sound quality from something so small! Great bass, treble and mid range. Also, it is loud enough for any party with no distortion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the link 500 I have a few of the jbl link products the link 10, 20 and 300 and love them. The link speakers sound great. I have the right size speakers for the respective rooms problem is the the kids love the speakers also and keep moving them around and taking them with them. I purchase the link 500 to replace 2 link 20 in the family room. The 500 sounds great it fills the room pluse you can hear it on the back deck with the windows open. Being that it’s a bigger speaker the kids dont move it around so the speaker is always available. The whole family uses this speaker every day and we have a big family 6 kids and all there friends.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice, but heavy I love JBL products! Nice, clean quality sound! The product does have a little weight to it, which I'm not a big fan of. I like light-weight products. It also doesn't have any built in grips for easy-movment. So it prevents me from being able to carry it easily. Have to hold it with both hands at all time! I also haven't been able to use the Google assistance as well as I'd like. Each time I wanted it to play a sound. It would say "playing sound now", but ends up saying "Unable to play, please try again". Maybe my internet wasn't strong enough, but I'm not sure. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sound This speaker has amazing sound quality. It sounds great and even when you turn the speaker full blast, the sound quality is still great. It gets pretty loud and works for parties or just chilling by yourself. The Google assistant is a great feature as well. It is very convenient and a nice additional feature. One of my friends has a Bose SoundTouch 30 wireless speaker and this speaker sounds just as good, plus it has a Google assistant. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow! Great sound and ease of use. I really enjoy the sound quality and convenience of the JBL 500. Although slightly larger than anticipated, it is worth the extra space. Already have recommended to several friends and relatives. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Très déçu J'ai choisi la Link 500 après avoir lu quelques articles enchanteurs sur le web mais j'ai le sentiment de m’être quelque peu fait rouler dans la farine. Cette enceinte n'a ni un bon, ni un gros son. Dès que je pousse un peu les watts, c'est tellement crade que baisse instantanément. Contrairement à ce qui est dit, les micros captent mal les ordres envoyés à l'assistant Google. Il n'est pas rare que la Link 500 ne réagisse pas depuis la même pièce alors que le Home Mini qui est installé à l'étage entend parfaitement bien, lui... Pour parfaire le tableau, je suis obligé de redémarrer l'enceinte avant d’espérer lire de la musique depuis mon smartphone sinon, pas de réponse. Et ensuite, les déconnexions intempestives sont légion !! Malheureusement je n'ai pas pu la tester assez rapidement et je viens juste de dépasser la limite des 30 jours pour la renvoyer. Je suis vraiment dégoûté... :(

Hoe kan ik verbinding met WiFi maken? Hij vind het apparaat dan weer wel dan weer niet. Heb zowel met tablet als telefoon geprobeerd. Kreeg melding AP isolatie router uitzetten? Raar de link 20 kregen we wel zojuist gelinkt met WiFi. Hoe TuneIn toevoegen?

Asked by: Klara65
De setup van de JBL 500 werkt normaliter goed, totdat je verbinding met "hij"verbinding met wifi wil maken. Het wordt in veel gevallen een soort van random verhaal. Doet ie het wel of doet ie het niet.! Enkele tips om de setup tot een goed einde te brengen: - Probeer alle andere 2.4 GHz en 5 GHz apparaten uit te schakelen. - Probeer uw router te resetten. - Probeer de Google home app opnieuw te installeren. (laatste update) - Zorg ervoor dat uw Google locaties ingeschakeld staan. - Probeer het apparaat op een ander netwerk aan te sluiten.

Die WLAN-LED blinkt schnell. Was hat das zu bedeuten? Wenn ich die derweil Box anspreche reagiert die Googletante sofort. Eine fehlende WLAN-Verbindung kann es also nicht sein. Leider ist dies nirgends dokumentiert.

Für die JBL Link 10, 20 und 300 kann man über den Equalizer im Google Assistant Höhen und Tiefen anpassen. Ist das für den JBL Link 500 nicht möglich?

Asked by: f1tz3
Vielen Dank für Ihre Anfrage. Da die LINK 500 anders aufgebaut ist als die anderen Modelle, ist es nicht mit Sicherheit zu sagen ob die LINK 500 das Update für den EQ bekommt. Wir haben aber Ihre Anfrage an das Entwicklungsteam weitergegeben. Vielen Dank.

Kann man 2 Link 500 als Stereo System konfigurieren?

Asked by: Mike111
Nein, man kann zwar Raumgruppen erstellen, aber die Kanäle nicht auf Links/Rechts aufteilen, beide laufen weiterhin eigenständig auf Stereo.

Hej! Kan man justera tex basen på något sätt när man kör via Wifi. För kraftig i många lägen! Mvh

Asked by: Jonas999
Tack för din fråga. Tyvärr så går det inte att ändra basen och andra EQ inställningar på högtalaren då den är utvecklad för att få ut det bästa ljudet till den specifika högtalaren.
