The sound quality is good. I use out for music and audio books and sometimes you get a speaker that's good at one but muddies or underperforms with the other, but this speaker works well both ways.
It comes with a solid charger plug and micro usb wire that connects well and charges quickly. The case is a pretty nice quality soft sleeve - probably wouldn't protect from a serious fall, but will keep it from getting scuffed.
I got this speaker on sale for about 80 bucks. It's great, but I'm not sure I'd love it as much of I'd paid twice as much for it, which is how it was priced when I first saw it. The price jumps around quite a bit, so, if you can wait for a drop, do it.
To be frank, my expectations were not that high. For the price I paid, I simply had doubts that it would be that great. However, since my son basically wants a bluetooth speaker primarily for mobility, I didn't want something too bulky either. Personally, I own a Mini Jambox for the same purposes and I was just hoping it would be comparable to that unit.
To my great surprise, the JBL Charge greatly exceeded those expectations! First of all, I love the design and portability. It looks good and feels substantial and well made in your hand. The bluetooth pairing process is as simple as it gets. Turn on the unit, put your music source in pairing mode and Voila, it's done! Now it's time to be impressed with the sound of this baby! While some reviewers have used words like "immense sound", I would not go that far. Come on, the speaker isn't that big! However, the sound it does produce is quite impressive. It kicks out plenty of volume while also delivering crisp highs and tight bass response. It's not a boomy bass like my Jambox but the sound is much less muddled than that unit. In fact, I switched to my Mini Jambox immediately to get an accurate comparison and here's the verdict: If my wife hadn't given me the Jambox as a gift, I would absolutely buy another JBL Charge to replace it. It's just plain better all around!!
But if you are looking for a decent (and inexpensive) speaker that you can use to listen to music while you get ready in the morning, shower, or to provide some nice background music during a barbecue or picnic then you can't go wrong with this option.
The battery life is also very good, but I have to say that I have never used the speaker to charge my phone like it is able to but I would imagine this would shorten the charge.
The JBL Charge is great. The first time I brought this speaker to my friend's pool party, everyone was amazed by its sound and volume. No one could believe such a loud and clear sound came from this tiny speaker. It is perfect for outdoors and indoors. Every time I go to the beach my friends and I blast the speaker and have mini dance parties. It is also great for indoors too. Every morning I listen/sing in the shower and the Charge is great. At full volume, the sound does get a little distorted, but I discovered that a great trick on iOS devices is to go to Settings.
> Music > Sound Check. This ensures a quality sound. Also I have played around with the EQ, and have brought out the bass.
Either way, this speaker is perfect. It has an amazing sound, loud volume, great portability, and a long lasting battery. I could not ask for anything else, and at this price, it can not be beat
