To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I bought these at a low price because they were already one or even two models outdated, but the savings was well worth it because they work great and sound AWESOME! No other speaker of this size and price point sounds this good and this loud. They don't get as loud as bigger ones but they are quite loud, especially outside. I like the blue color but the color doesn't really matter to me. I splurged on a couple of nice cases for these - there are ones that fit these specifically - so I can now take them all over, and I do. I bought two of these so with the linking feature I can play from my phone, tablet, or laptop to BOTH at once. It's great, I would buy them again if I needed to and if they still sold these, otherwise I'd buy the newer version of these.
Sounds great right out of the box! I've owned this speaker for about five years and at the four year mark I began to have interference and buzzing from the speaker along with greatly diminished battery life. I used this speaker sparingly during this time (about once or twice a week for one to two hours at most) and never used it outdoors or anywhere near a pool. I also bought an Ivation speaker for work that I used every day for years for 8 hours a day constantly that is still going strong. I expected more durability for this brand and price point. Will not be buying another speaker from this brand.
Love it love it love it!!! I purchased 2 to link them and the sound from only one is remarkable!!!! Small, waterproof (great for a beach visit), battery life about 6hrs (give or take), I recommend a powerbank and varying case.
I bought this for the historical QUALITY of JBL. The sound was great but it just stopped working.... in less than 2 years, with minimal to moderate use. I expected a JBL product to be better than that for $100. Couldn’t charge it. Researched internet. Suggestion: pry the plastic casing away from the speaker!! It actually worked!! Occasionally! I’d really suggest looking at other options.
