PROS

  • The cables can be tucked neatly in the folds of each speaker for easy travel.
  • For their size, it's surprising how loud the Pebbles speakers are.
  • There is little distortion to deal with even at maximum volume.

CONS

  • If you want to position the speakers more than 32 inches apart, you need to buy an extension cord.
  • The Pebbles come with a USB charging cable but no adapter to plug them into a wall outlet.
  • Some users reported loose volume controls that jump around when adjusted.
The neon tire look isn’t for everyone, but the JBL Pebbles speakers are easy to use with just about any laptop setup. If you need more than 32 inches of cable or you want to plug the speakers into the wall instead of a computer, you need to take a trip to the store. Small and lightweight, the speakers are built for portability and deliver impressive sound for their size and price range. The best feature is a niche built into the bottom of each speaker where the cords can be tucked away. The worst feature is a touchy volume control that doesn’t always work properly.

Without a subwoofer, the small-ish pebbles can’t deliver deep, visceral bass, but they do an impressive job of filling out the mid-bass region, which gets you enough low-end output to round out the overall sound signature and provide just enough punch to catch your attention.

The cables are tough, but they are too short so you have to place them close to the PC or laptop. It can be a problem if your PC cabinet is kept on the ground.

These do get loud. But with being loud, is there any distortion? Hardly.

You can stand them up vertically or lay them flat, but you can’t separate them very far with their 32-inch cable.
