JBL Charge is rated 4.3686868686868685 out of 5 by 198.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Sounds good for the size, charging port a plus I'm replacing the HMDX Jam, and this JBL Charge definitely has better sound quality. I was looking for something with stereo speakers, which this has. You're not going to get booming bass out of this portable speaker, but the sound quality is definitely pleasing. The guys that work in my office were definitely impressed! I also bring it to work to charge my phone when it gets depleted I did buy this refurbished, and was not impressed with the finish of the product. The volume button appeared as though someone has gotten food residue in the crevice. Then, the speaker started doing weird stuff, and wouldn't connect. I had to order a replacement unit. Hopefully the replacement will work better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Versatile Portable Wireless Speaker! I was sharing my passion for bicycling on Facebook and a friend suggested that I try the JBL Charge to use on my rides instead of the marginally unsafe practice of using earbuds to listen to music while riding.     The charge fits perfectly into a standard water bottle cage and the volume is more than adequate to listen to any music you desire.    Additionally this speaker can go with me on trips, to the office, on outdoor activities, or to any room in the house and deliver more than acceptable audio for any occasion.  As a former Bose only audiophile, I love this little addition to my audio equipment collection.   Thanks JBL, Harman Kardon!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product for the price I bought this product for my wife for Christmas for her office.  We listened to it on Christmas Eve  and I was blown away by the sound quality.  Decent bass for such a small speaker and great clarity on mid range and highs. I took it with me to work and a friend there who has a Bose Soundlink was also impressed. I bought one for myself the day after Christmas.  Also love the ability to charge my phone with it.  The only negative I have found is it is difficult to pair another device to it. I had to unpair my phone and turn off bluetooth before I could pair it to another device. Would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a quality portable speaker

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for the price! I have had my JBL Charge for a couple of months now, and I chose it after demoing a dozen or so different bluetooth speakers. To me, the Charge has a forward mid tonality with decent bass and treble for it's size and price point. And it plays really loud compared to others in its price range that are this portable. However, one could overdrive the speaker. The person in the other review who has had to exchange a few because of the speaker developing crackling probably ran it too loud. I find that it is possible to turn it up to where it is distorting if the audio signal is loud enough. Some people just haven't learned yet how not to kill speakers. LOL

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent portable speaker in its price range I own two speakers, one is stored in the trunk of my auto and the other is at home for outdoor use. I am satisfied with the sound especially when played at a level that is not pushing it to a distorted level. Sorry I cannot be more specific on this issue of sound level. The manufacturer is correct on the battery playtime for the speaker, it outlast an iPad battery time. The sound is very good, the voice and instruments are detailed and true to the original source. The unit is priced correctly in what it does and for speakers that are competitive. Everyone that listens to this speaker states that they like and would purchase the JBL.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great..Her is How to pair it with Sony TMR-BT8IP Blue Tooth Adapter for IPOD. I just paired JBL Charge With Sony TMR-BT8IP Blue Tooth Adapter for IPOD. Great sound quality. At first I was puzzled by How to pair it. Here is HOW 1) place JBL Charge in pairing mode by Holding down POWER button for 3 seconds.(it will start flashing blue - red - blue - red) 2) turn on IPOD but do not play. 3) Press and hold only button on Sony TMR-BT8IP for 7 seconds release the button as soon as blue light starts blinking quickly. That's it within seconds you will have them paired and flashing will stop on both devices :) Great combination of small size and Sound quality. I have not yet used it for charging other devices. once I have enough to share, I will.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from caught off guard... My partner in a Golf Tournament had the blue version, asked if I mind a little music during our round, of course not! Well wasn't I surprised with the big sound coming from something the size of a large energy drink. Unlike the tinny sound satellite radio plays through most car speakers, this little gal packs a decent wallop. All volume levels sound crisp AND there's bass, wow! Saw the Bose & other portable speakers at BestBuy a few months back. Bose way, way overpriced (as usual) and others not suited for outdoor use, especially riding next to a liquid refreshment in a golf cart. I couldn't purchase my own fast enough...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Choice For The Money After reading many online reviews (and hearing the Jawbone Jamboxes owned by friends) I decided on the JBL Charge. Shortly after buying it, however, I read such a positive review of the Logitech UE Mini Boom that I decided to give it a listen at a local Best Buy. One of their employees also recommended the JBL Charge. I decided to buy them both and compare them against the Charge. Results: the UE Mini Boom had surprisingly low volume and very flat sound. The Flip was louder, with better sound, but lacking enough bass for me. The Charge was just as loud as the Flip, had great sound, and the extra bass that I wanted. For the money, I don't think it can be beat. I'm keeping the Charge.

Can base and treble be adjusted jbl charge2 or are they preset

Asked by: Donka1
Bass and treble are preset on the speaker. However, you can use media players that have an EQ function to adjust the Bass and Treble of the speaker.
