The JBL LINK line of speakers featuring the Google Assistant has begun arriving in Australia this week with the LINK 10 and LINK 20 now available to order from JBL and in stores.

The LINK series speakers were announced at IFA in September but we hadn’t heard confirmation that they were coming to Australia until now. The LINK 10 and LINK 20 are now available to order from JBL’s online store, as well as from Harvey Norman for $249 for the LINK 10 and $299 for the LINK 20. They will also be available from JB HiFi shortly.

The LINK 10 is now available at JB Hifi for $249 but there’s no sign of the LINK 20 at this stage.

The more powerful LINK 300 speaker is also on its way to Australia, but won’t arrive until next year around March, but unfortunately pricing has not been announced for the LINK 300.

All three speakers include Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity and JBL’s famous best in class sound. The LINK 10 and 20 designed as portable speakers with 5 and 10 hours of battery life respectively. Both carry IPX7 waterproof rating. The LINK300 on the other hand is designed as a multi-speaker system which JBL says ‘can be easily linked together for a big, bold multi-room listening experience—within reach of any home Wi-Fi network’.

Full specs for the speakers include:

The speakers should fulfill most of what you’re after from a portable speaker and we’re hoping to get hands-on with the LINK 10 and LINK 20 soon. As soon as JBL announce anything on the LINK 300 we’ll let you know.

Looking forward to someone comparing the sound quality of these to the Sony LF-S50G. The battery in the Link 10 & 20 is big plus.
