Expert review by : Yasmine Crossland (

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.

Solid portable speaker!


I purchased based on JBL's good reputation for robust portable Bluetooth speakers and this appears to be no exception. I was tempted by this new model (over a discounted Charge 4) as dust proof certification has been added, making it even more suitable...

Super sound


like the box, it is easy to use and the battery is unbeatable. During outdoor training, it delivers the right sound and provides me and my participants with motivation. I used the box when training on the tennis court, in the garden, in the house and I...

Great Speaker from JBL


The new Charge 5 from JBL is again an absolute stroke of luck. Now it is even water and dust resistant. So summer can come and the days at the lake are saved. The integrated battery lasts a very long time and the feature of using the box as a power...

good box


I was allowed to test the JBL Charge 5. This is, as always accustomed to JBL, quite well made. The sound is quite "room-filling". I could put this against my Charge 3 and had to notice some good changes. The battery lasts a long time, the sound is...

I love the design and the sound quality


One of the best portable bluetooth speakers on the market now. Clear sound and deap bass, I love it. Powerbank function, IP67 protection, partyboost mode are great! Two things which holding me from a 5 star rating are that the speaker is a little...

Great advancement


I received the JBL Charge 5 from the Portal Review Club as part of a product test. When the loudspeaker arrived, the beautifully designed packaging attracted attention. Everything very nicely designed. The main box has a magnetic lock and makes a very...
