This Bluetooth speaker from Infinity (JBL) is from Harman and is an ultra-portable speaker that has a lot of feature and I liked all of them.
📦 IN THE BOX
፨ Charging cable of 2 feet length
፨ A small loop for handing the speaker
፨ Instruction Manual
፨ The Infinity Fuze 100 bluetooth speaker
>> A decent packaging, could have included more accessories
🔍 MY OBSERVATIONS
፨ This Bluetooth speaker is just under 8.2cm height and 7cm diameter, and weighs 192g
፨ Has a loop option on top for hanging the speaker.
፨ There are 4 buttons on the top and are flush flat with the top. The button are a not soft buttons and need to be pressed a little hard.
፨ There is a microphone on the side bottom and the micro-usb charging and Aux-in port closed by rubberized stopper.
፨ The power button on top which is in the shape of infinity logo lights up when powered on.
፨ The speaker on the sides are covered by rugged fabric mesh.
>> In my observations the build quality is top notch, feels strong, stylish and portable.
🗓️ MY USAGE
፨ I was able to connect my phone to this Fuze 100 via Bluetooth and uses version 4.2 with support for Qualcomm aptX codec.
፨ I tested the range upto 46 feet which is my apartment length and even between walls too there was no disconnection.
፨ Coming to the audio, There were 2 modes - Normal and Deep Bass mode.
፨ The bass is superb when the deep bass mode is turned on. The lows were good enough too, though there were some misses in a couple of songs but the overall music listening experience is superb. The speaker power is 4.5W RMS as per the pack. I tried various genres and tried many different songs and all sounded excellent in my opinion.
፨ If I need to compare, I need to compare with JBL Go or Logitech X50 which both have higher signal to noise ration of 80db, where Infinity Fuze has 70db which is not bad in my opinion. And if comparing the frequency range then Fuze 100 has the same frequency range like Logitech X50 which is 100Hz, whereas JBL Go goes upto 180Hz. The higher the frequency the more treble or sizzle and lower the frequency is more bass and low rubble.
፨ At max volume, in some songs there is a slight crackling noise but not always and not much too. Indoor or closed environment listening is super and outdoors its quite good, not bad at all.
፨ The Fuze 100 has an option to connect with another Fuze 100 to give a 2 channel effect but I just had 1 and so couldn’t try.
፨ This unit is powered by 750mah battery and it lasted approximately 8 hours for me as I kept changing the volume and kept approximately at 70% The unit can be charged using the regular 5V/0.5A mobile charger.
፨ The Fuze 100 has IPX7 waterproof rating which means the unit works if dropped in water of less than 3 feet. Also the fabric used is rugged one and does not attract dirt. So now i take these speaker on our family outings as I don’t worry about the speaker getting wet or dirty, and if it got dirty we were able to just wash away the dirt using water.
፨ The feature I liked most apart from music in this Fuze 100 is the hands-free calling feature using the microphone. I use my Amazon Echo to take my office conference call meetings and this time I tried this Fuze 100. I didn’t like call with the Deep-Bass mode as the sounds were over powering but when I turned the Normal Mode this became the perfect device for me to attend meetings from anywhere.
፨ When connected to the phone, I was able to invoke Alexa (can use for Google Assistant or Siri too based on what is set as default on the phone) by double clicking the play button on the speaker.
💖 WHAT I LIKED
◾ Battery Backup
◾ Ruggedly built and waterproof
◾ Inclusion of a Mic for call
◾ Portability◾ Good Bass
♻️ WHAT I FELT CAN BE IMPROVED
◾ Longer charging cable or charger could have been provided
◾ No Aux cable, could have been provided
◾ NFC could have been used
◾ Bluetooth 5.0 could have been used instead of 4.2
Overall, the features and the performance of this complete and power packed portable Bluetooth speaker just wins my heart. There are some areas of improvements but when considering the price, in my perspective Infinity(JBL) has got the right scores in this segment and I felt this purchase of mine is worthy. 🥇
UPDATE (14/10/19): 🔋 Battery backup test updated. So far speaker is working good without any issue. Its really loud and fills a 12x24 ft hall easily. Infact, people don't belive that it was this tiny speaker playing such a loud, clear, strong bass music, when they suddenly enter my hall while Fuze is playing music playlist. :D
VIDEO INCLUDED: Covers unboxing, hands-on, music playback, voice assistant check & IPX7 waterproof test!
Though, I already have a 700 bucks Photron BT speaker & was then ok with its sound quality for the price range but was looking for an upgrade for a long time. There's also an Echo with great sound but its not portable. So got the Harman (JBL) Infinity100, which as expected blew up Photron in every aspect be it quality, sound, bass, etc, but was unable to compete Echo.
Personally, i prefer my JBL in earbuds & Sennheiser HD 4.40 over the ear for deep solo music playback or LG 5.1 HT system for glass breaking bass, but Infinity surely fills the gap of portability with good quality sound, on the go for multiple listeners.

1. For the price, sound quality is impressive & top-notch. Also, it covers a great bass range.
2. Overall build quality is top class with rugged mesh for longevity & matte finish for easy holding.
3. With 192g (approx the weight of a smartphone), it’s highly portable.
4. Waterproof with an IPX7 rating. You can even submerge it in water (check the end of the video for the IPX7 test).
5. In water, it floats on its own. So it’s not gonna fall to the bottom of the pool or any water body.
6. Dual-mode playback, wireless or AUX in. Wired or passive mode ensures good quality uncompressed audio as in the case of BT, audio data is compressed.

1. Buttons (tact type) behind soft plastic are slightly hard to press & miss proper feedback.
2. The base does not have a proper grip to prevent motion(there are four projected mini dots for that) & during playback speaker literally moves from once place to another.
3. No charger inbox (but can be charged via any mobile charger or laptop)
4. No AUX cable in the box. Mini AUX cable would be highly appreciated.
5. No NFC for one-touch pairing.
6. Charging USB cable is very small.
▶ Cons are not affecting the core functionality of the device i.e. sound delivery, but addon functionality and user experience. So a ★ ★ ★ ★ device.
🌐 PERFORMANCE COMPARISON (FUSE100 vs JBL GO vs FUSE700 vs SENHEISSER)
→ With a frequency range of 100Hz – 20KHz & 4.5W output, almost everything is covered. Infinity Fuze 100 covers more bass range & output as compared to JBL Go or JBL Go 2 (180Hz to 20KHz & 3W) in a similar price bracket. So you can expect better sound & bass here. For comparison, Infinity 700 has a 60Hz-20kHz range while Senheisser 4.40HD (over the ear) has 18Hz to 22kHz.
→ Signal to Noise ratio (here its 70dB) is in an acceptable range. For JBL Go its 80dB. This parameter tells about how much noise (sounds other than actual audio, added by internal components) is there in the output (sound we finally hear from the speaker) compared to signal (actual audio) level. i.e. for Infinity 100, the level of the audio signal is at least 70 dB higher than noise. Higher the no, better it is.
→ Also, the transducer size is 43 mm as compared to 40 in JBL go. It is believed that bigger & heavier speakers sound better than small & lightweight ones.
▶ Enough of numbers lets come to real-world performance. Infinity Fuze 100 did not disappoint me at any point in time and is sufficient enough to fill a big room. Even at full volume, it’s crisp and clear with thumping bass. Remember its small speaker and its bass effect just can’t be compared to bigger counterparts or HT systems.
💦 WATERPROOF IPX7 RATING
▶ IPX7: X- no dust protection, 7- Immersion, up to 1 m depth (up to 30 min)
→ So Infinity Fuze 100 is a perfect go for pool parties, bathroom usage etc without worrying for the damage. Just that sound output may not be enough to cover the entire pool but more than enough for bathroom 😉
→ Just make sure that your USB & aux port flap is properly closed when not charging or using wired mode, else IPX7 will not work & water will damage the speaker.
→ Fuze plays the music till it’s fully immersed in water as then there’s no air for sound waves to travel. Still, you can hear light music that travels through the water medium. As soon as it is out of the water, the volume level goes up.
🔊 VOICE ASSISTANT SUPPORT
→ The default voice assistant of the connected device can be activated with a double press of play/pause button on top of Infinity Fuze 100.
→ The dedicated microphone on Fuze 100 takes the command & its speaker performs the action.
→ Works well on smartphones or laptops with Google Assistant, Cortana, Siri, etc.
→ You can use it for all sorts of tasks supported by assistants like direct hands-free calling, weather updates, alarms, reminders, smart device control, etc.
→ Power button (infinity symbol): on/off (press > 0.2s)
→ + : volume + (press), next song (press > 2s),
→ – : volume – (press), previous song (press > 2s),
→ Play/pause: play (press), pause (press), bt pairing (press), call accept (press), Call reject (press > 3s), true wireless pairing (press > 3s), voice assistant (double press)& – button simultaneous press toggles dual EQ
→ Play/pause & power button simultaneous long press clears pairing information

→ You can pair it to any no of devices but connect only to one device at a time.
→ It automatically attempts to connect last connected device or any of paired devices when switched on & if not found it remains in standby mode till the paired device is switched on.
→ It doesn’t seem to have any priority sequence wrt which device is paired to first, in case all of the paired devices are on. In my case, it gave preference to Windows laptop, when switched on (BT of both smartphone & laptop was on.
→ To clear pairing information, press play/pause & power button simultaneously.
🔌 USING AUX CABLE
→ AUX cable is pretty straightforward to use. Make sure to use 3 point AUX cable as i had trouble making 4 points on to work. 3 point cable worked perfectly.
→ I prefer AUX whenever possible as compared to BT, as AUX transfers uncompressed audio signal as opposed to BT which transfers compressed signal (approx 4 times) to be decompressed at the other end. This results in loss of audio fidelity leading to worse quality as compared to AUX.
→ Also, various sound settings & EQ modes are available via parent device for AUX mode to get the best output via a speaker. These are generally not available in the case of BT mode.
🎵 STEREO MODE
→ One can pair 2 Infinity Fuze 100 Speakers to have the stereo effect
→ To stereo pair, long-press (> 3s) the play/pause button on one speaker
→ Both will be connected to form new BT connection name "Infinity Clubz 200"
→ If there is an issue, clear pairing info by long press of power & play/pause button simultaneously
→ Connect mobile to new Infinity Clubz 200
→ Enjoy stereo effect via both the speakers
🎵 DUAL EQ- EXTRA BASS
→ Speaker comes with a bass boost mode for extra heaviness
→ For this, it has 2 EQ built in
→ To switch b/w normal & bass boost mode, press +/- volume button simultaneously
→ Fuze comes with a 1-year warranty from invoice date
→ To register the warranty scan QR code on the package or go to the website mentioned below it.
🔋 BATTERY BACKUP
1. At full volume & deep bass mode “on”, Fuze 100 gives around 2 Hours 10 Mins of continuous playback. Thats the backup at full load.
2. For medium volume & deep bass mode “off”, Fuze 100 gives around 5 Hours of continuous playback. Thats the backup at partial load.
3. At lower volumes you get further better backup.
Full volume is really loud for a normal 12×24 feet hall & you will normally use it at around 70% volume for filling experience. So you can expect 3-4 hours continuous playback under such conditions with deep bass mode “on”.
▶ Although its a no match for my LG Home Theatre system, for the portability it offers along with sound quality & support for the voice assistant, Infinity Fuze 100 is a go.
▶ Remember, everything goes by the Brand you select (Bose, Sennheiser, Sony, Harman (JBL) etc). Go for cheap quality local brands & expect the same. Infinity Fuze by Harman delivers nice experience in the lower mid-range segment.
▶ Another factor is price, which also matters a lot. Quality comes at a price, & is directly proportional to cost. A lot of people complain about quality (distortion, noise, cranking at higher volumes etc) after spending less on these devices. So it’s better to shell out more to have a better experience. Rest, the sky is the limit.
This speaker is touted to be exceptional in bass reproduction, and a 'party starter'. Its no of those. The speaker is tiny, it doesn't have enough room for bass, and most of what it does, is simulated through DSP. As a result, it sounds artificial as it lacks warmth. The high and mids are overtly pronounced, which soon becomes irritating. Overall the sound is unbalanced and unnatural. How does Boat 200 sound better? It sticks to the basics. Even withing the JBL stable, the old generation JBL Go produces balanced sound, by efficiently utilizing the bass port.
There's nothing exceptional about this, and they couldn't inherit the JBL experience in sound reproduction.
