"Listen longer and you realise the JBL invariably sounds big and impressive." 'What Hi-Fi? magazine'. 5-star review. Tested at £110.
JBL punch Just as you'd expect from the master of studio and cinema speakers, the JBL Charge 2+ packs quite a punch. In addition to the dual drivers, either end of the unit features passive ABRs (Auxcillary Bass Radiators). These augment the active drivers to give a deeper, more sustained bass response, without added drain on the battery.
Bluetooth connectivity with Social Mode 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 3.0 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. Taking this one stage further, Social Mode lets up to three users take turns in syncing their choice of music and device with the speaker - perfect for parties! A 3.5mm AUX input is also included for a wired connection.
Ideal for handsfree conference 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 2+ is ideal for conference calls - especially in rooms that are otherwise less than acoustically ideal. Compatible with both Apple iOS and Android smartphones, the Charge 2+ offers a great handsfree solution to calls.
Built-in rechargeable battery for up to 12 hours of music plus the ability to charge your smartphone Featuring a substantial, built-in rechargeable battery, the Charge 2+ is able to offer up to 12 hours of music playback. Thanks to the more than generous 6000mAh battery and a USB outlet, the Charge 2+ can also charge your portable device - making a full day of music easily possible. When the juice does finally run out, the Charge 2+ can be fully topped up in 4 hours from a 1.8A source.
The perfect party speaker but also a valuable business tool for conference calls; the JBL Charge 2+ is just as much a multi-tasker as your smartphone.

Great sound, great valueThis is a great little product that delivers great sound at a really competitive price. Connectivity was easy and straightforward and I would certainly recommend the JBL Charge for someone who likes their rock music to sound like it should.

Looks goodVery neat little speaker, and the sound is pretty good too. It would be better if it had seperate bass and treble though..! All in all very happy with it, great for taking around the house, garage, camping and all sorts of places...! My boys use it aswell..

Good buy but.........I discovered the JBL bluetooth speakers recently whilst staying with friends and was impressed by what I heard. Buying from Richer Sounds was easy as their website is easy to use.
The speaker(s) were delivered as promised by courier and in good packing and with the charger. The sound quality is excellent with full bass and clear but not over brilliant treble. This gear is easy to setup and very pleasing to the ear.
The only reason for the but...... was because as I was walking past Richer Sounds in Guildford a couple of days after delivery I picked up the latest catalogue where the same goods were about £20 cheaper. I really do not mind that much but it could make the difference between a sale or not to some.

A great deviceThis Bluetooth speaker surpassed my expectations. Connected rapidly to my iPad and sounded great. Much easier than plugging in the myriad cables that I used before.

Great soundGreat sound for such a small speaker. Light enough to make it easy to take away on holidays. I've bought it as a present but I'm sure the recipient will be very pleased with it.
