”A fun and bubbly Bluetooth speaker with a serious sound.”– ‘What Hi-Fi’ – 5 Star review.

Powerful sound

Just as you'd expect from the masters of studio and cinema speakers, the JBL Charge 4 packs a mighty punch. As well as dual drivers, either end of the unit features passive ABRs (Auxiliary Bass Radiators). These augment the active drivers to give a deeper, more sustained bass response, without added drain on the battery.

Bluetooth connectivity
Bluetooth connectivity means there are very few modern digital sources that won't connect up. Pretty much any smartphone or tablet for starters, plus many laptops and PCs will all easily connect up. Pairing devices is easy and, once paired, you'll benefit from quality Bluetooth wireless sound over a range of up to around 10 metres. Stream stored music or music from your favourite apps for a near unlimited supply of music. A 3.5mm AUX input is also included for a wired connection.

Tough and robust
Made from rugged materials, this punchy speaker is a tough cookie. Waterproof to IPX7 standards, the Charge 4 is not just resistant to rain and spills but can even survive being immersed in water. Take it to a festival, friend's BBQ or even backpacking - the JBL Charge 4 is built for adventure.

Long lasting battery that will also charge your mobile
Using a high capacity 7500mAH battery, the Charge 4 can party hard for up to 20 hours. A USB output means that you can also charge up your smartphone on the move.

JBL Connect
Connect multiple JBL Connect enabled speakers together and you've got yourself instant music for a house party, with music wherever you choose - indoors or out. With the ability to connect more than 100 JBL Connect+ enabled speakers together, even street parties are possible!

Ideal for handsfree calls
Another benefit of Bluetooth connectivity with your smartphone is the option of handsfree phone calls. Accept, decline and end calls via the buttons on the unit and alter the volume to suit - without even having to touch your phone. Using noise and echo cancelling technology, the Charge 4 gives crystal-clear quality, indoors or out.

The perfect party speaker that's also equipped for the great outdoors, the JBL Charge 4 is ready for anything.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound and price I have had this about 3 weeks, and it hasnt disappointed in quality sound. It has been great inside the house and outside in garden, the base sounds are really good on it, the volume is again really good. Also the hours its lasts, once charged up is really impressive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb sound quality I use this speaker every day, the sound quality is unbeatable for the price, best I've come across so far. I thought the Bose SoundLink was top quality, but the JBL Charge 4 is far superior. Will definitely be buying another JBL connect+ speaker to use with this one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from JBL charge 4 Had this speaker for just over a week now. I replaced my JBL charge 2, which had given up the ghost. The charge 2 was a really good speaker for its size. The cost of repair made it an uneconomical repair. So opted for the charge 4 after reading some reviews online and watching some video reviews on YouTube and also the price was good at £108 I'm very impressed with the overall sound of the charge 4. It's definitely an improvement on the charge 2 but I never tried the charge 3, so I can't compare them two. It is a louder speaker the charge 2 but not massively. The quality of the bass and mid-range and even the top end are a big improvement on the charge 2. I'm quite impressed with the fact that I could ring up and speak to somebody at richer sounds even with the situation as it is. I was also impressed with their knowledge of the product and recommendation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very satisfied I recently bought a JBL Charge 4 and am delighted with its sound quality and size. Once I’d realised how to set it up (instructions aren’t brilliant) the process was very simple.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Bluetooth speaker Great sound, easier to set up, portability. Bought this for my daughter and already an essential bit of kit for her and she is raving about the sound quality. Certainly loud enough to keep a uni student content but without any distortion. Good value. Very quick delivery.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice little speaker Works fine and does the job but doesn't blow you away. I find the sound a little muddied. Just don't expect wonders for this price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Product Bought this for Bluetooth features which allows me to play in the street to entertain the neighbours during lockdown (VE Day,Thursday Nights). Easy set up, good quality sound, could go louder I think.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big sound I bought this a week ago to use with a Sony mp3 player over Bluetooth. The sound is great. Nice chunky bass and crystal clear treble. It's made my music sound interesting and fresh all over again. It easily goes loud enough to hurt your ears when indoors. I love it!
Date published: 2020-05-04
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent sound and reproduction Just had this a few weeks now, I love the sound it reproduces but really love the flexibility. Link it to BBC i player to catch up with my favourite programmes, soooo much better now! Can’t wait to get back out in the camper van and use it remotely

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well built, better for outdoors rather than in Well engineered, with punchy sound. Great for taking outdoors, but is a little hissy and lacks detail at lower volume levels

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Banging Speaker, at agreat price. Bought this a replacement to the JBLCharge 3 that someone helped themselves to. I absolutely liked the Charge3 and was uncomfortable moving onto the Charge 4. Anyway, it's a newer model, sleaker look compared to the Charge 3 and the sound I would say is still the best around for the price range and at times beats speakers in a higher price bracket. I am not audiophile by any means but have always been a fan since the Charge 3. So yeah, great all round blanced speaker, good battery to last the mile and charge facility as an extra. The only downside to the Charge 4 compared to the Charge 3 is that they have taken away the ability to use the speaker to answer calls etc but it is no big deal.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from J BL Charge 4 Great sound. compact and portable. Good battery life too. Only issue is that connection from phone or chromebook is sometimes a bit crackly - more so than my previous (cheaper) bluetooth speaker.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from what can i fault i had already bought one of these a while ago from the Maidstone branch (these chaps are really helpful in the store) and for the money you just can't fault the the speaker, its compact, sounds great and it carries some punch so brought another to go in my kitchen. Happy days!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound from small speaker I bought this a few weeks ago and extremely happy with it. Not had the volume past the middle as neighbours would kill me. Its punchy, clear on vocals and connects no problem. As per usual service by Richer Sounds was faultless
Date published: 2020-04-26
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely blown away I had heard good things about the JBL Charge 4 prior to ordering, but nothing prepared me for how good it actually is. I am in no way an audio expert, but it has far surpassed my expectations and the audio quality / bass is amazing. I still cannot believe a speaker as small as this one can produce such great sound. I have been listening to mine at ~30% volume as it easily fills the space and the charge seems to last an incredibly long time. Make sure to use this with FLAC / Hi-Fi / Lossless audio for the best experience.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from JBL CHARGE 4: EARLY DAYS BUT IMPRESSED SO FAR! Purchased for my daughter to replace a 5 year old Beats Box by Dr Dre ( still works but now somewhat outdated ). Used on arrival in the garden and she is well impressed. Easy to connect to her iphone, compact size, robust build quality, warm and clear sound. Seems to have ticked all the right boxes! Very early days but impressed so far. The Beats Box has lasted over 5 years so it will be interesting to see if the JBL Charge 4 will stand the test of time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bluetooth Speaker Took ages reading reviews before finally opting for the JBL Charge 4 and so glad I did. Can't believe how good the sound is, okay it's not exactly a home hi-fi system but certainly a great cheaper option. Been listening to it in the garden while I get some outside jobs done and couldn't be happier. Connects in seconds and so easy to use by app (I'm currently using spotify). Don't know what the battery life is like yet, so far have managed 8 hours without recharging but could well be more. Just be careful if you're using it to charge your phone as well as this does run the battery down. Highly reccomend.
