Ok let me try to keep this as simple as possible. I have both the Flip and the Charge. I also have a Jawbone Jambox as well as other bluetooth speakers. First off the Jambox has it's place. It does a superb job as a speakerphone especially with all of the features it offers. The audio quality is good but it cannot begin to compare with the clarity and volume of the JBL's. Enough about the Jambox, this is a comparison of the Flip and the Charge. First of all JBL did with the Charge what they should have done with the Flip. So here's what you get for the extra $50 bucks. Better bass response, way better battery life, a micro USB/USB charging port and the ability to charge your devices. You lose the speakerphone with the Charge. The worst thing JBL did with the Flip was the flipping charger. USB charging is essential with these small speakers. The second worst thing was the poor battery life. You get around 3.5 to 4 hours if you jam. The 5 hour rating is at lower volumes. Sound quality comparison. Volume is about equal in both speakers. They both put out incredible sound for the size. The volume of either will smoke any other small speaker and go head to head with most bigger speakers. You can rock the house down with either one of them and the clarity of both is outstanding. As I said before, the bass on the Charge is richer but the comparison made me appreciate the sound quality of the Flip which has a decent bass response, especially for the size. The Charge is a little larger and has the bass port which is the reason for the improved bass response. Naturally the overall sound of the Charge is richer and warmer due to the increased bass response but the Flip holds its own.Read more ›

I have been looking for a bluetooth speaker for quite awhile now and I initially purchased the Bose Soundlink II. The JBL Charge was not available in a store near me and I opted to purchase a speaker I could listen to in person to determine sound quality and also one that I felt I would have less of a chance of being disappointed with. I didn't want to order something online without being able to hear it in person. As a result, I bought the Bose Soundlink II about one week ago and I was initially impressed, but as the days wore on I couldn't help but feel that it didn't justify the $300 price. In my opinion (I stress the word opinion) the Bose sounded too bass heavy for me, somewhat muddy, and somewhat unnatural in the way that I like my music to sound. If a bass heavy bluetooth speaker is what you are looking for then the Bose is the way to go, but I felt the bass overpowered the vocals as opposed to complemented them. It seemed that the fact the Bose Soundlink II could produce a lot of bass was more important than the way it blended into and accentuated the music.

I continued to search for a JBL Charge in store near me and was excited to see that Best Buy just began carrying it. I went to the store and gave it a listen. It sounded pretty good but I'm not one to crank up the volume in store so I purchased it and figured I would compare it to the Soundlink II at my home. I was willing to live with the bass heavy Soundlink II if the maximum volume was noticeably louder than the JBL Charge. I turned both of the speakers up to full volume in my home and began listening to the Charge. Wow, it was louder than I expected, but it couldn't be as loud as the Bose Soundlink II, could it?

I was really excited about the positive changes JBL made to its new BT Speaker, nicknamed Charge, as much as I was curious about what exactly has been implemented sonic performance wise in comparison to the Flip. I had a chance spending two hours with both units and listening to them side by side. I have to say what I found is quite interesting: the Charge is definitely not just the Flip with a face alteration and weaknesses enhancements; for better or for worse, it feels to me almost like a completely different product.

First, Above all, the sound:

Granted, they sounded similar, but noticeably different even the first time I turned them on; I felt they almost had a distinctive sound signature when I listened more!

It seems JBL has adjusted the built-in DSP: tuned down the highs a few notches and boosted up the lower end; hence, my overall impression about the Charge was that it was more neutral sounding, with just a tiny bit more bass palpable. So did it sound better than the Flip? Hardly!

David Carnoy from CNET commented in his timely review that the Charge sounded a bit better than the Flip, but didn't bother to elaborate. I would say it's probably a matter of personal preference. To me, with the volume set at 80% and below, the Charge sounded subdued and the added bass was almost negligible in most samples I played, ranging from hip-hop, jazz, ambient, chamber music, country, hard rock to pure vocal. On the other hand, the Flip was significantly brighter, crisp with a sound stage more open. the Charge by no means sounded bad or flat, just quite uncharacteristic, losing the wow factor associated with the Flip. Also, the Flip presented more details - I felt this might have something to do with the reduced highs.
