JBL Charge 2 (review): A long-lasting Bluetooth speaker that can juice up your gadgets, too

 

The $130 Charge 2 offers strong battery life and bass while doubling as a mobile charger for your cell phone. But how good does it sound?

The JBL Charge 2 is a well-designed, durable portable Bluetooth speaker that features excellent battery life and doubles as an external charger for your portable devices. It also has built-in speakerphone capabilities, plays loudly for its size, and...

The speaker distorts with certain material, particularly with bass-heavy tracks and more complicated songs.

The JBL Charge 2 is an attractive, sturdy portable Bluetooth speaker with strong battery life and the power to juice up your gadgets, but its decent sound is held back by uneven performance.

JBL Charge 2

 

The JBL Charge 2 is a portable Bluetooth speaker that can muster some rich bass response and crisp, clear highs on certain tracks, but it distorts on others.

For $150, the distortion and the lopping off of track beginnings is a bit much to swallow. The Bose SoundLink Color and SoundLink Mini are similar Bluetooth speakers that both feature distortion-free, fairly bass-rich responses. The Jabra Solemate Mini...

JBL Charge 2+ Review: Shakes Off Water, Sounds Great

 

The JBL Charge 2 touts rich bass and a splash-resistant design that comes in a variety of fun colors. Just be ready to charge it often.

Rich bass ; Splash proof ; Reasonable price

Average battery life ; No mobile app

JBL's latest version of the Charge adds water resistance and offers better sound, making an affordable portable speaker even better.

JBL Charge 2 review

 

Great audio and device charging? This Bluetooth speaker is big on perks

Great sound quality ; Ample battery life ; Charges devices ; Speakerphone capability

Bulky ; Slow to connect

With bonus features like device charging and speakerphone, the relatively compact JBL Charge 2 impresses as one of the best Bluetooth speakers we've come across.

Astonishing

 

Not sure what I was expecting, but this speaker has totally blown my mind, and everyone I have demoed it to. Will easily fill a 50 square metre room with the most amazing sound. Astonishing feat of engineering.
