JBL GO 2 review

 

A tiny block of quality audio

Ultra-compact form factor ; IPX7 water resistance ; Speakerphone

Below par battery life ; Microphone isn’t sensitive

The JBL GO 2 is an ultra-compact speaker that’s waterproof and rugged. While its small size limits its audio potential, it can get surprisingly loud and has a handy speakerphone that makes it one of the most balanced ultra-compact bluetooth speakers....

JBL Go 2

 

The JBL Go 2 is an affordable waterproof speaker that offers solid volume levels and a full sound signature for its size.

Solid audio performance for the size. Waterproof. Affordable.

Light on accessories. Can distort on deep bass tracks at high volumes.

Probably the most impressive aspect of the Go 2's performance is its ability to pump out volume. No, it's not loud like a larger speaker with multiple drivers would be, but it'll blow away the built-in speakers on nearly any laptop or tablet. In other...

JBL Go 2 review: A small waterproof Bluetooth speaker with clear sound, low bass

 

The JBL Go 2 speaker is quite a noticeable improvement over its previous gen Go, speaker.

Small and compact ; Clear sound ; Waterproof/Splashproof design

Weak bass

The JBL Go 2 speaker is quite a noticeable improvement over its previous gen Go, speaker. At Rs 2,699 what you get is clear sound and waterproof design.

JBL Go 2 review: Mini Bluetooth speaker offers maximum portability

 

The second-generation of JBL's tiny, entry-level Bluetooth speaker, gets full waterproofing along with a better design and sound.

The JBL Go 2 is a very small wireless speaker that fits in a pocket and sounds decent enough for its tiny size. Its design and sound have improved from the original and it's now fully waterproof. Plus, it has speakerphone capabilities.

It doesn't have all that much bass and its battery life isn't great at 5 hours.

While it won't rock the house, the JBL Go 2 is an appealing little Bluetooth speaker.

JBL Go2 review: Small but large hearted

 

JBL Go2 review: Keep this device in a corner of a large room and it will be able to fill it and someone coming from outside will not be able to figure out where the music is coming from.

Consumer review (richersounds.com)

Great sound for such a small speaker

 

I looked at so many different speakers that I could use in the rain and eventually decided this was the only one that didn't seem to suffer with battery or charging ssues and wasn't overpriced. It is small, but delivers good sound for what it is and...
