The new JBL Charge 2, a portable stereo speaker offering best-in-class sound with dual drivers and twin passive radiators that deliver deep, accurate bass so powerful that you can actually see them trembling – even as their sound hits your ears. Featuring a 6000mAh Li-ion battery that can play up to 12 hours of music even as it recharges your smartphone or tablet, the Charge 2 is built to outlast all-night parties – as well as charge other portable devices by way of its USB port. It’s an iconic piece of portable audio that was born to be the life of the party anywhere you put it, whether in your living room or in the great outdoors.. But apart from its newly enhanced best-in-class sound and it’s ability to charge other portable devices, what puts the JBL Charge 2 at the far head of the competition are its outstanding Bluetooth capabilities. You can easily connect Charge 2 to any Bluetooth-enabled device by giving the portable’s Bluetooth key a single short press. Featuring Bluetooth A2DP and SBC codec that gives your Bluetooth powerful wireless playability, it also comes with a hands-free speakerphone conferencing microphone complete with noise and echo cancelling technology, giving both your music and your calls unparalleled wireless sound and clarity. Finally, you can access the portable speaker’s Bluetooth Social Mode, freeing up to three different users to wirelessly link their smartphones or tablets to a single Charge 2. Now you and your friends can each take a turn sharing your individual play-lists all on one speaker – so the music options never run dry. JBL sound engineers have never been strangers to taking on the biggest challenges. Charge 2 is further proof that best-in-class sound and groundbreaking innovation runs deep in our blood.

Not only is the JBL 50 bucks cheaper, but to my surprise, it actually sounds better!! I'm no audiophile by any means, just your average consumer, but I like my music to sound good and this makes it sound great! The sound emitted from this is more true to what it should sound like whereas the Bose seems almost to heavy and artificial, mostly when it comes to the bass notes. Not something that would be noticed if just listening to one or the other by itself. The musical range is great and although the JBL is plastic, I would feel much more comfortable toting it around with me compared to the Bose.
Of course you know that it has the capability of charging USB items with it's 6000mAh battery, hence the product name "Charge", so I don't really need to get into that too much I don't think. One downfall is that it doesn't come with a carrying case/pouch. I was looking on the Best Buy website and it says it does, but that is bad information. Another downfall is JBL/Harmon doesn't make a pouch that you can just buy as an accessory, but I have found a few generic ones here on Amazon that would work for around the $10 price range.
There has been talk that some people have received somewhat defective models where when the volume is low, it doesn't work right, but apparently not all of them are like that. Must be a hit and miss kind of thing since it's such a new to the market item. I would still highly recommend getting this over the Bose Mini, even if you might end up with a defective one, it's worth the risk and you can always exchange it whether you get it from here or at a local retailer. Less expensive, better sound, truer bass and just all around awesome. As I said, I'm glad I waited on getting the Bose as this is now the more superior of the two.
It is remarkably loud for its size and has excellent sound clarity! Surprisingly low bass response! I am blown away by how much this thing puts out for its size, and the quality of the sound is astounding. The battery lasts long enough to play walking around for quite a while...
I have a NOCO 12000mAh battery that I use to charge the speaker and my iPhone 5 at the same time... I walked around for 8 hours yesterday, when I got home both the speaker and my phone were at 100% and my battery was at 50%. I'm stoked. The first time I went out with this setup, the speaker fell from my backpack! A little scuff, but no biggie! The thing is pretty solid but I wouldn't recommend doing that too much. I have the speaker more securely fastened now, it is just barely the same size as the straps on the bottom of my old Da Kine Nomad hydration pack.
I only use this at work to listen to music from either my iPod or Spotify from my laptop. I'm a profession tattooer and I have a private room that is roughly 15'x15'. I'm not great at judging distances so that's a guess. It's not a huge space by any stretch but it's not tiny either. For the space I use it in, this speaker is perfect. It's loud enough to drown out any 'background noise' (a shop full of tattoo-machines buzzing, people talking outside my room (95% of the time I leave my door open which leads to a 'common area' of the shop), etc...) and the first thing I noticed about the sound is that the bass was surprisingly good for such a small package. I listen to a pretty good cross-section of music...ranging from hardcore and punk and Oi! to metal to hip-hop to ska/reggae to 80s New-Wave and more...and it all sounds really good through this little speaker.
I don't really have a need to really crank this little speaker...but if I had a gripe...it's that even though it's small and relatively inexpensive, I feel like it should be a bit louder on the higher end of the max volume. I tried turning it way up to see what it could do and it seemed to max out a bit before I thought it would. I don't expect a $100 speaker to shake a house or anything...but in my small room I thought it'd get a little louder. Not a concern for what I use it for...it really is plenty loud and then some for what I need it to do...but if you're buying this for a larger space it's something to consider. I bought a similarly priced soundbar for a TV I recently purchased where I didn't really like the stock sound-quality of the TV...and I feel like that speaker gets considerably louder. It's also considerably larger (which wouldn't suit my purposes at work where space is at a premium)...so maybe that's the trade-off.
Either way, I would totally recommend this little unit if your needs for it are like mine where you want to have a good sounding speaker for a smallish room that also takes up very little space. If you need something to fill a larger space with sound then you may want to look around some.
