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

 

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

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.

Basically, the Charge sounds like a $100 speaker—and if that were the actual price, it would have a higher rating. Bass lovers will need to spend a little more money for wireless speakers that can convey lows with any real sense of power—the Bose...

JBL's Charge delivers a jolt of sound -- and power

 

The Charge is a nice compromise for those who want a better sounding portable Bluetooth speaker but don't want to make the jump to the Jawbone Big Jambox or Bose SoundLink Bluetooth Mobile Speaker II.

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 blue

 

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.

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 Review: Solid Sound with Power to Spare

 

Good midrange and bass tones ; Can charge mobile devices ; Multiple color options

No speakerphone ; No weatherproofing

The JBL Charge delivers good sound performance for a $150 portable Bluetooth speaker, and it can double as a backup battery.

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...
