JBL Charge 2 – I must say I am delighted with it

I bought this having heard a friends jbl speaker fill a large room at an office party and couldn’t believe the sound that came out of such a small unit. After reading many reviews, the charge 2 plus seemed the best option. Whilst the bass can’t match a dedicated sub-woofer, considering the small size, it delivers an amazingly full and well rounded sound. One reviewer mentioned low volume levels. I have found this depends on the source of your music. Playing from my mp3 player is noticeably quieter compared to playing a direct stream from the internet (such as amazon music), where the volume does not disappoint. I highly recommend this speaker it is fantastic. Warning: i considered buying the jbl charge 2 plus off ebay.

Had this a few days now and think it is a great speaker. I have been searching for a decent bluetooth speaker for quite a while now and am happy with this product. It has very good bass for such a small device and will quite easily fill a room with great sound. Great sound and does not distort at high volumes. I have been using this in the shop that i work in and lasts a good full day at the shop at half volume with some charge leftit also has phone charging capabilities which can be very useful if you are out and about.

Plays anything from dubstep to rap with no problem. Battery life is great i charge it once a week and i use it daily.

Having had a few of these bluetooth speakers including the bose soundlink 2 at £30 more i can without a doubt honestly say this one blows them away. Fantastic clarity and bass response and at 50% volume lasted nearly 14 hours on a single full charge.

The swiss army knife of portable bluetooth amps. Agree with all the positive comments. It’s a right little monster. Great for festi’s, not much to carry but really knocks it out without any undue distortion. Haven’t read all the reviews so not sure if it’s been mentioned but it is a cracking travel amp for a guitar. I travel a fair bit, stick this in my hand luggage, just add something like a snapdragon folding guitar (also a1) and some sort of portable recorder – i bought a boss br-600 at a hock shop for £60, just add headphones for quiet times and you’re set – easy absolutely brilliant.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Depth to the Sound and Great Bass
  • Fantastic bit of kit
  • A fantastic little speaker

Amazing sound and battery life is brilliant. Perfect for home and out and about.

If you listen rap , hip hop , techno – well you will be very happy 🙂 quality speaker jbl – the name say everything. 2 years warranty including just in case – you can’t go wrong with this.

Lovely sound, but not as robust as i’d like. It produces a fantastic depth of sound. Sadly the grill on mine got dented almost straight away after it rolled off something. (downside of the round) it feels well built, but dented easily.

Good sound quality fully waterproof once dropped under water and was fine not very loud though.

But i found the battery life to be very poor.

My dad likes to listen to music whilst he is outside by his koi fish pond so asked for this for his birthday. They’ve been splashed a lot (koi fish jump out the water more often than you’d think) yet they still work perfectly.

Excellent value for money, sound quality crisp clear, with base- love it.

    Powered for most, but won’t make your ears bleed. . At moderate volumes it performs brilliantly and sounds fantastic at home. However, i use mine in when travelling in company vehicles, where it struggles just to compete with road-noise. At maximum volume, there’s a lot of bass distortion, and the higher frequencies can get a little crackly. I bought it for the “12 hours” battery life – that’s only at moderate volumes. When using at full volume to overcome road-noise in noisy vehicles, it won’t get past 5 hours of driving. But plug it in to a decent usb charger for the journey and it’ll last through any journey. I’ve used it while on camp-outs with friends and it’s lasted well all evening, filling our campsite with plenty of background music.

    1. Bought as a present for my hubby. He loves it and uses it to listen to podcasts during his commute to and from work. It’s a sturdy, good looking speaker that really works whether you are playing audio book, podcasts or music.

    I bought these on the back of rave hifi reviews. . Looks like a well made speaker with very easy connectivity. However the bass is really shallow and overall this makes the sound poor,i auditioned them along side my sony srs-x55’s and i am keeping the sonybut if your not too fussed they should be ok.
