Good Sound, Bad Tech.
I bought this speaker about 3 months ago and was impressed with the sound but terribly disappointed that this cannot use JBL connect app. Guess it is what it is but why, it's your latest technology and you choose not to use it. Upgraded to the xtreme and would love to connect them but nope can't happen.

"Eureka...I found it!"
I had tried a could different brands before. I tried each for a few days only to realize the bass was either too extreme and the treble too weak in comparison, or the bass was kinda "flat" (changing the sound setting on my new Samsung Galaxy S6 did NOT help). So, I was discouraged enough to return both and wasn't ready to make another choice yet. Two weeks later, today, I walked into my favorite electronics store, went straight over to the portable sound system section, and did the demo of the JBL Charge 2+ and INSTANTLY loved the wonderful treble and bass. Clarity and deep perfect bass! I bought one and believe it's "keeper"!

Small box, BIG/Loud Sound
I originally bought the Charge and then saw that the Charge 2 was coming out. I wanted to upgrade to the Charge 2 because of the sleek look. I am very happy now that I have upgraded to the 2.
The sound is great. I love the fact that there are two subwoofer (bass) now. It vibrates on both ends and really shows how strong and loud it can get.
The sleek look and feel is a nice change from the Charge 1. It's definitely more sophisticated in appearance.
- sleek design
- great bass and sound
- unique design (like a mini-torpedo)
- easy to sync up to wifi devices
- there is NO carrying pouch like the Charge 1
Overall, I really like the 2. The sound is great!

Like most anyone i wasn't really sure what to get as far as a new bluetooth speaker that sounded great and was portable. I spent time watching youtube reviews and reading other reviews like this one. If you like having a portable speaker that still has great bass then this is the speaker for you and it will also keep your phone or i pod charged when you need it. Also it sounds way better than the original JBL charge, way more bass in this one. It does vary from song to song, but it is very impressive how good this sounds. It sounds better than other speakers like it in best buy and walmart that they have on display.

I received my speaker about 2 days ago. I love it. I made sure I did all of the proper research before I bought it because honestly 150 is a lot for something like this. But I now see that it's worth every penny. The sound quality is amazing! The bass is great. I don't even have to have the volume up halfway to get a room filling sound. The only downside is that it did not come with a case. I would think that something like that would be included. Guess not. Now I have to spend more time and money trying to find something I can keep it in safely. Until then i'm going to be paranoid about something happening to it.

Nothing like it!
I bought this speaker from a Dixons outlet at work, for no particular reason. I'm quite a fan of sound systems and like the experience that these speakers put out. But I must admit I've never heard nor come across anything like this. It looks professional and adapts to any environment you put it in. It nice to hold and easy to grip, After hearing mines I've managed to convince my manager to buy one and a colleague to buy two! The speaker is just great from all angles. Its well presented, simple to use and is a pleasure to listen to. It makes any song of any genre sound good. I'm very impressed! highly recommended!

I got this for christmas as a gift from my mother. It has exceeded my expectations in every way. The sound quality is truly excellent. I have had a few bluetooth speakers before and this one is orders of magnitude better. Tight, firm bass and clear mids and highs. Sounds great for any genre of music as well as podcasts and TV shows.
The battery life is excellent. On a full charge, this product can go somewhere between 8 and 10 hours. It does take a while to charge (about 6 hours).
The features are awesome too. Especially social mode. It totally eliminates the party dilemma when you have a few friends that would all like to play songs. It works flawlesslly. Overall 10/10.

GREAT Speaker!! but where is case to protect it?
Great Sound !!! Best of any in it's class. I'd give it 5 stars if it wasn't for the following shortcomings:
#1- Needs case to protect it, & store charger & USB cable. Sleek & stylish, but too easy to damage.
#2- Needs app for remote control.
#3- Passive Radiators should have protection. Too tempting to touch as they vibrate, especially for kids. Saw a store display where Passive Radiators were distorted from people poking too much.
#4- It would be nice if it had a screw mount centered on the bottom for a small tripod. This would allow the speaker to have space underneath, which would give better sound quality.

I had hoped to connect this to my Amazon Echo. The problem is the Charge 2+ when in Bluetooth sync mode is passive. So is Echo - both expect someone to manually accept sync. Is there an app or another speaker model I need?
Our portable speakers including the CHARGE 2+ doesn't support a third party speakers over Bluetooth connection. So Amazon Echo will not work with the CHARGE 2+.

is the refurbished item still covered under the one-year warranty?
Yes, our re-certified items do come with a one year manufacturers warranty same with our brand new products.
Date published: 2016-08-16
What does "recertified" mean in terms of warranty? (JBL Charge 2+)
Recertified products purchased from this website come with the product's original warranty protection. For example, the CHARGE 2+ comes with a 1 year warranty protecting you against manufacturing defects.

Can it be paired with another similar speaker for stereo listening (so that one reproduces L and the other does R)?
The CHARGE 2 or 2+ does not have the Connect function. With that said, you can't connect two CHARGE2/2+ for stereo mode. However you can connect them via a hardwired connection using an AUX splitter cable but it would not produce stereo sound. Speakers that have the Connect feature are the following: FLIP 3, CHARGE 3, PULSE 2, BOOST TV and the XTREME.

I just bought a charger 2 and plugged it in - no sound at all little light keeps blinking and when I hit it I get this blurb blurb blurb. cant adjust the sound level either help!!
Try one of these options to possibly resolve the issue.
- Disconnect cabling and unpair/disconnect any devices which may be paired/connected Bluetooth. Allow the battery to completely discharge. Apply the power source and allow the battery to charge completely.
- Try a reset. In power ON mode, press and hold the "Volume +" and "Phone" buttons at the same time for 2-3 seconds. The CHARGE 2+ will power off, and is now reset.
If none of these things work, please submit a case at www.harmanaudio.com/contactus and the Customer Service team will be more than happy to further assist you.

While playing golf & listening to my Charge 2+ thru my IPhone, I received a phone call & it blasted thru the Charge speaker system. How can I turn off the speakerphone so my fellow golfers don't strangle me?
Thank you for the inquiry. The telephone symbol on the speaker enables and disables the speaker phone feature.

Does it come with a full warranty?
Thank you for the inquiry. This product carries a 1 year manufacturers warranty.
