The JBL Charge 2 is a wonderful little speaker. Not only does it look cool, but, even more importantly, the sound that comes out of this thing is incredible.
For a small Bluetooth speaker I was initially a little concerned that the sound would not be loud enough to fill an entire room. However, the first time I hooked it up to my iPhone and played music, it was obvious that that would not be a problem at all. We were able to use this in a gymnasium and hear it easily throughout the whole gym, so a room in your office or house will easily be filled with clean, crisp sound.
Another concern some might have is bass. The JBL Flip 2, which is also a great little speaker, is plenty loud, but is probably not the speaker for you if you want to hear a lot of bass in your music. On the other hand, the JBL Charge has incredible bass. I don’t just mean that it sounds good for its size. I mean it flat out sounds great and has wonderful bass period.
In addition to this it packs a battery that runs for an impressive 12 hours. The JBL Charge 2 also has a speakerphone setting that's handy for conference calls or to use while busy in the kitchen.
The Bluetooth setup of the speaker is a breeze. Another really cool feature is that it has a USB port that allows you to actually charge a device by using the speaker. I have compared this speaker with some of its competitors. Not only is it a superior product, but it is also more reasonably priced at $99.99 (which is down from its original price of $149.95).
