JBL Charge 2+ review

 

An extremely likeable wireless speaker, with a bold and beefy sound...

Rich, expansive sound ; Excellent build quality ; Social mode – connect up to three devices at a time ; Splash-proof design

Deep bass can sound overdone

A well equipped speaker, with great build, and a bold sonic nature

JBL Charge 2 Plus review

 

Splash-resistance makes last year's hit speaker even better

Design is easy on the eyes ; Excellent sound ; Water-resistant

Somewhat unintuitive button layout ; A little expensive

There aren't many small speakers around that sound as good as the Charge 2+ for its $150 price point. If the price still has you on the fence, its waterproofing and solid battery life should make it easier to swallow.

JBL Charge 2+ review: A sweet-sounding Bluetooth speaker that can juice up your phone, too

 

The Charge 2+ fixes the problems of its predecessor, delivering a superior Bluetooth wireless speaker that doubles as a charging station for mobile devices.

While the speaker is water-resistant, it isn't waterproof (its ports remain exposed).

The JBL Charge 2+ is a wireless Bluetooth speaker that sounds flat-out great -- and can double as a backup battery for your phone, too.

With an attractive splash-proof body, a built-in microphone and a convenient design, surely there is nothing to dislike about the £100 JBL Charge 2+. JBL has become well-known for its highly durable portable wireless speakers, but how does this model...

JBL Charge 2+ review

JBL Charge 2+

 

The portable, splash-proof JBL Charge 2+ delivers a solid Bluetooth audio experience at moderate volume levels, but distortion can creep in on tracks with intense bass.

Rich, crisp audio performance ideal for most genres. Splash-proof, outdoor-friendly design. Speakerphone functionality. Can pair with up to three Bluetooth devices simultaneously. Can charge mobile devices.

Distorts heavily on tracks with serious sub-bass. On-board track navigation is a bit tricky.

Distortion and the track navigation issue aside, the Charge 2+ is a capable speaker for most music genres that can certainly deliver a robust sense of bass when it isn't challenged with the very deepest sub-bass the music world has to offer. However,...

LG Watch Urbane review: Big, bulky, and boring

 

Weatherized enclosures don't stop these versatile Bluetooth speakers from delivering surprisingly good musical performances.

Great bass response for its size ; Rugged construction ; You can charge your phone from its battery

Doesn't support the aptX audio codec ; Based on Bluetooth 3.0 ; Volume controls very difficult to see

The Charge 2+ is protected by rubber-coated end caps. JBL doesn’t report an IP code for the speaker, but states in both its advertising and in the speaker’s user manual that it can withstand splashes of water and can even be cleaned with running water...

JBL Charge 2+ Splashproof Portable Speaker Review

 

The JBL Charge 2+ is quite possibly the best portable bluetooth speaker on the market right now. We felt the same way about the predecessor, the JBL Charge, when it came out two years ago. The JBL Charge 2+ is a Bluetooth speaker with a large battery...
