JBL Charge 5 review: small speaker, serious sound

 

The JBL Charge 5 is a portable Bluetooth speaker that doesn't skimp on sound quality

Loud, powerful sound ; 20-hour battery life ; Can be used to charge your phone

No EQ settings in the app ; You can’t use PartyBoost with Connect+ speakers ; No 3.5mm audio port

For those who want a loud, durable speaker to use on days out at the park or beach, the JBL Charge 5 is an excellent choice. The audio is powerful and accurate, and it has improved dust resistance as well as a waterproof design. What’s not to love!

JBL Charge 5 review

 

Updated specs and subtle tweaks for JBL's fifth-generation Charge

Clearer and more detailed sound ; Wider soundstage ; Updated dustproofing

Nothing at this level

JBL’s Charge 5 hails from a victorious and dominant product line, and the winning trend does not stop here

JBL Charge 5 review: Big sound for summer listening

 

The JBL Charge 5 is a great choice if you're after a rugged Bluetooth speaker capable of outputting serious sound both in and outdoors

Impactful sound ; Solid battery life ; Now dustproof as well as waterproof

No AUX-in or microphone ; Lacks EQ options

JBL Charge 5 review

 

With a new look, a little more ruggedness and improved sound, the JBL Charge 5 is one of the best Bluetooth speakers — just not one of the cheapest.

Full vocals ; Rich bass ; Good battery life

Limited app ; Few extras

Still, if you’re a fan of the JBL sound, want that power bank functionality or simply prefer its looks, the Charge 5 is a solid choice for a portable (and waterproof) Bluetooth speaker.

Amazing, exactly what I wanted

 

Only bought a few weeks ago to use in a school hall for a dance class. Needed something to fill the room and this worked perfectly. Sound quality is great even when loud. Feels great quality too. Very pleased!
