JBL GO 2 review

 

A tiny waterproof speaker that can take a beating

Ultra-compact form factor ; IPX7 water resistance ; Speakerphone

Short battery life ; Lacks bass ; Mic isn’t sensitive

The JBL GO 2 is an ultra-compact speaker that’s waterproof and can really take a beating. While its small size limits its audio performance potential, it can get surprisingly loud and has a handy speakerphone that help make it one of the most...

JBL Go 2 review: Mini Bluetooth speaker offers maximum portability

 

The second-generation of JBL's tiny, entry-level Bluetooth speaker, gets full waterproofing along with a better design and sound.

The JBL Go 2 is a very small wireless speaker that fits in a pocket and sounds decent enough for its tiny size. Its design and sound have improved from the original and it's now fully waterproof. Plus, it has speakerphone capabilities.

It doesn't have all that much bass and its battery life isn't great at 5 hours.

While it won't rock the house, the JBL Go 2 is an appealing little Bluetooth speaker.

JBL Go 2

 

The JBL Go 2 is an affordable waterproof speaker that offers solid volume levels and a full sound signature for its size.

Light on accessories. Can distort on deep bass tracks at high volumes.

Probably the most impressive aspect of the Go 2's performance is its ability to pump out volume. No, it's not loud like a larger speaker with multiple drivers would be, but it'll blow away the built-in speakers on nearly any laptop or tablet. In other...

JBL Go2 review: Small but large hearted

 

JBL Go2 review: Keep this device in a corner of a large room and it will be able to fill it and someone coming from outside will not be able to figure out where the music is coming from.

Bit disappointed

 

Sound wise is good so far, not the loudest though. I keep it allways I'm a pouch, to prevent any damage to it or scratches but it still very sensitive and the color of it just started to fade out, on corners and edges. Batterie wise, not the greatest,...

Great little speaker

 

Used for a few weeks now in the garden , sounding really good at steady volume levels . I'm sure it would be just as good at higher volumes , but not had grounds to use it so. Build quality fantastic and not had to charge since I got it despite many...
