JBL Charge

 

Solid audio performance at moderate volumes, with rich lows and clear mids and highs. Easily portable.

Distorts at high volumes on tracks with deep bass. Slightly overpriced.

The JBL Charge is a decent portable Bluetooth speaker priced like a very good one.

Review: JBL Charge

 

JBL's latest portable Bluetooth speaker is small, but has a huge battery that lasts 12 hours and can charge your phone. Unfortunately, it doesn't offer...

Comes in black, green or blue. Battery lasts 12 hours. Charges your phone. More affordable than similar-size Bluetooth speakers. Small, easy to carry

Sound quality can’t match that of the competition

JBL Charge ( grey)

 

First and foremost, this is a wireless speaker, but it's called the Charge for a reason: it has a USB port that allows you to use the speaker's built-in 6,000mAh lithium ion battery to charge other portable devices, such as a smartphone or tablet .

The JBL Charge is a compact portable Bluetooth speaker that sounds very good for its size and is designed to be used horizontally or vertically. It also has a built-in USB port that allows you to use the speaker's built-in 6,000mAh lithium ion battery...

No speaker-phone capabilities; can't handle heavy bass at higher volumes without distorting.

The JBL Charge is a nice compromise for those who want a better-sounding portable wireless speaker but don't want to make the jump -- both in terms of size and price -- to something like the Jawbone Big Jambox or Bose SoundLink.

JBL Charge Review

 

At a price of Php7,995 , you can get the JBL Charge both as an amazing set of speakers and as a charger for your portable devices. It's something light enough for you to bring along with, and it's extremely loud with the quality being impressive. While...

JBL Charge Bluetooth Speaker

 

Sonically great, charge your 5V devices on the go, somewhat rugged build

No mic for speakerphone, 6,000mAh battery falls short for recharging

JBL Charge Bluetooth Wireless Speaker

 

JBL's unexpected late 2012 release of the $99 Flip was stunning. Even though Flip arrived two years after the Jawbone Jambox -- a seriously overpriced but still category-defining small wireless speaker -- it looked, sounded, and felt like the sort of...

JBL Charge

 

While we'd love deeper bass, the punchy detail, portable design and good price makes this wireless speaker a worthwhile contender

Punchy, energetic sound ; Good detail ; Goes loud ; Portable and compact ; Easy to use ; Charges smartphone ; Price

A rather coarse and bright treble ; Needs more refinement ; Could do with more weight and deeper bass
