JBL Charge 4

 

The JBL Charge 4 is an excellent option for those who want a waterproof, powerful-sounding portable Bluetooth speaker in a moderately sized frame.

Powerful audio performance with rich bass and crisp, clear highs. Gets quite loud for its size. Waterproof.

No speakerphone function. Mono audio output.

Very good...Very happy

 

I had seen good reviews about the Charge 4 but when you listen to it for real, it is so good. Everyone I show it to loves it. My Alexa is always connected to it.

Poor bass

 

I still have a JBL Flip4 which is the smaller brother of the Charge 4 and I have to tell that the bass is incredible on that small speaker. I expected at least time and half more impressive sound just looking at the tech spec differences but...
