JBL Charge 2 review

 

Great audio and device charging? This Bluetooth speaker is big on perks

Great sound quality ; Ample battery life ; Charges devices ; Speakerphone capability

Bulky ; Slow to connect

With bonus features like device charging and speakerphone, the relatively compact JBL Charge 2 impresses as one of the best Bluetooth speakers we've come across.

JBL Charge 2 (review): A long-lasting Bluetooth speaker that can juice up your gadgets, too

 

The $130 Charge 2 offers strong battery life and bass while doubling as a mobile charger for your cell phone. But how good does it sound?

The JBL Charge 2 is a well-designed, durable portable Bluetooth speaker that features excellent battery life and doubles as an external charger for your portable devices. It also has built-in speakerphone capabilities, plays loudly for its size, and...

The speaker distorts with certain material, particularly with bass-heavy tracks and more complicated songs.

The JBL Charge 2 is an attractive, sturdy portable Bluetooth speaker with strong battery life and the power to juice up your gadgets, but its decent sound is held back by uneven performance.

JBL Charge 2

 

The JBL Charge 2 is a portable Bluetooth speaker that can muster some rich bass response and crisp, clear highs on certain tracks, but it distorts on others.

Robust bass response at modest volume levels, sounds great on genres that don't have seriously deep bass. Can connect to three Bluetooth devices at once. Built-in speakerphone.

Distorts on tracks with deep bass. Cuts off the opening of songs when navigating tracks.

For $150, the distortion and the lopping off of track beginnings is a bit much to swallow. The Bose SoundLink Color and SoundLink Mini are similar Bluetooth speakers that both feature distortion-free, fairly bass-rich responses. The Jabra Solemate Mini...

JBL Charge 2+ Review: Shakes Off Water, Sounds Great

 

The JBL Charge 2 touts rich bass and a splash-resistant design that comes in a variety of fun colors. Just be ready to charge it often.

Rich bass ; Splash proof ; Reasonable price

Average battery life ; No mobile app

JBL's latest version of the Charge adds water resistance and offers better sound, making an affordable portable speaker even better.

JBL CHARGE 2

 

Resembling the looks of its predecessor, JBL Charge 2 is a cylindrical shaped portable speaker equipped with dual drivers and twin passive radiators at both ends to deliver accurate and deep bass. Apart from the great looks and sound, the

Social mode, sound quality ; compact

Distortion in bass heavy tracks

The JBL Charge 2 is a versatile portable speaker with good battery life and sound quality. Before buying, take a look at the Bose SoundLink and Bose SoundLink Mini that offer distortion free sound.

GREAT PERFORMANCE AT A KEEN PRICE

I purchased this unit in the USA (Before UK release), it out performs easily similar size units with a deep rich base and trebles that easily cope with higher music tones and voice passages. It works well on both load music and lower tone audio tracks....

At least as good if not better than Bose Soundlink Mini at 1/3 cost!!

  (Rating Hidden)

Bought this at Dixons Travel for £49! I also have a Bose SL Mini. They sound very similar at low/medium low volume. However, at soon as you turn up the volume the Bost starts to distort in the bass which gets flabby. This is quite noticable in some...
