JBL Charge 4 review

 

Minor updates to an already excellent speaker

Balanced, powerful sound ; Can charge your phone ; Long battery life

Some distortion at high volumes ; No 360-degree sound ; Long charge time

The JBL Charge 4 only offers minor updates to the previous generation but it remains an excellent value in wireless speakers. The Charge 4 can pump out gobs of bass that doesn’t overwhelm, lasts forever, and can top up your phone in pinch. If the bulky...

JBL Charge 4

 

The JBL Charge 4 is an excellent option for those who want a waterproof, powerful-sounding portable Bluetooth speaker in a moderately sized frame.

Powerful audio performance with rich bass and crisp, clear highs. Gets quite loud for its size. Waterproof.

No speakerphone function. Mono audio output.

The Charge 4 sounds excellent for a mono speaker at this price. Its solid build is waterproof and, for all of its output, not terribly big. There are other solid options in this price range—the EcoXGear EcoSlate, the Bose SoundLink Color II, and the...

JBL Charge 4 Review

 

The JBL Charge 4 is a good speaker that fills a very specific niche: a long weekend trip car camping or to a remote cabin with a large group of people. In...

If you need a loud speaker that can last all night and won't skip a beat if it gets spilled on or dropped in the dirt, the fits the bill. Just don't expect absolute top-tier sound, nor a particularly portable design.

Review: JBL Charge 4 rocks and pops in rugged style

 

The JBL Charge 4 is a waterproof, mono, Bluetooth speaker offering 30W of power, 20 hours playtime and acts as a power bank. Perfect for those rugged

Great build;Loud with good low bass;Huge battery life – we did not exhaust it in 20 hours at 50% volume (65dB)

It's just a damned good BT waterproof speaker – no frills.

Consumer review (richersounds.com)

Very compact and very easy to operate

 

Got this for Christmas and really pleased. My old Go Cambridge was excellent but no longer holding battery charge after 10yrs. The JBL Charge 4 is at least as good, a bit smaller, very compact and with excellent sound quality. Easy to charge via USB...

Consumer review (richersounds.com)

Big sound improvement without big outlay.

 

I bought this a fortnight ago after quite a lot of research. As usual, once I'd selected my preferred item I checked Richer Sounds first for availability and price, and, as usual, they came up trumps. I wanted the Charge 4 principally to improve the...
