I can’t recommend this bt speaker enough. The battery life is stunning.
I use this for work, it will go 3-5 days without needing a charge depending on volume (around 25-50%) the sound quality is excellent, the mids are a little flat on low volumes, but at 50%+ they are better. (can be tweaked with an eq) the volume goes very loud without distorting all the way up to 100%. The bluetooth pairing is seamless and once paired just turn it on and it connects straight away. Fully waterproof so would be a great holiday accessory. Only issues i have are the sealed flap protecting the charger port is tough to get into (i use a coin to pry it open) but it’s a small price to pay for full water proofingthe stitching is a little frayed around the edge, but very minor and hasn’t worsened in the weeks i’ve been using it. Well worth the £120 i spent on it, and would definitely recommend it to anyone, especially if it’s on sale.

Comments from buyers
“10000000% recommend, Best buy this year. Thanks JBL big shoutout!, Portable and Effective”
Send this back as the sound quality wasnt great compaired to the bose revolve and mini 2 i had, although the bose ones has to be returned due to them being faulty. My parents have had one of these and around 1 year now and its still going and they have used it out in the garden etc with it being water proof. They love it so the battery life and durability score a 5 from me. I just didnt like the sound compaired to my bose but as i have said the bose broke so this is better looking back.
Brilliant,great value for money,great sound.
I purchased this for my daughters birthday after i had read a load of reviews for this and similar models. This model and brand came out as one of the best pil speakers, ticking all the different sound boxes. It is a fantastic product, would def recommend.
For me it is a great size and has wonderful sound. It packs a good sound punch for its size. I love the camouflage colouring too. It seems very robust and no signs of any of the ‘faults’ that some others have complained about.
Love this portable speaker, great sound quality for all my different types of music.
Bought this so i could bluetooth spotify from my phone as the spotify capability through the sonos app is not as flexible since it does not show my personal daily mixes. I found this product as good as my sonos speaker and far more versatile. Its ideal if you just need one speaker and is so portable, loud and the battery lasts for days – amazing. Great value relative to a sonos speaker.
It has a really great sound with lows and mids, on highs the bass singles out a little but still has great sound quality. I have dropped this speaker quite alot from about head hight and still seems to remain completely intact and waterproof , and the built in portable charger helps alot when out and about. From my testings this speaker has gone 21 hours from full battery on 50% volumes.
I’ve been in desperate need for a speaker but not just any old one, a real good quality one. I have to say even though i knew it would be loud cos jbl always deliver, i did not expect the sound quality to be as great. Like literally even at it’s highest volume you can still hear every sneer and kick in your music.
My husband very pleased with this. A great improvement on our previous one. Clear sound; more than loudmouth volume for a large room in a house. Good looking and quality spec.
Buy this not the flip 4, punchi bass good mids clear highs.
This was a gift for grandson. I have heard no complaints from him.
Omg this is such an impressive little speaker. It’s about the size off a large can of beer. The sound from it is just amazing and loud, and it has quite a bit of bass to it, it is supposed to be waterproof so it is excellent for using outside in the garden for parties etc.
This was a gift to my partners daughter (a teenager who wanted the beats) she was very pleased with the quality of this one once she put it on 🙂 you get a lot more for less. I will get one for myself eventually:).
This is an great product, and i would highly recommend it. It’s a good looking design, and for it’s size it has good bass and excellent sound quality. It’s also water resistant and i have used it in the bathroom without any issues.
Fab fab fab – this is the second one we have bought, the firt was for me, the second for our daughter, who carries it everywhere with her , the sound quality is astonishing.
Best in its class, sound quality better than the bose mini soundlink, durability better than ue boom, if you’re looking for an incredible sounding, practical and nice looking speaker with an unbelievable battery life, this is the one.
Absolutely amazing the bass the sound quality it amazing. Listen to sky walker by miguel and listen to frank sinatra fly me to the moon its unbelievable.
This speaker is amazing, i love iti use it everyday paired to my samsung j5 phone. Perfect for around the house/garden, in the car, camping. I took it to work and paired it with 3 different phones (iphone and samsung) without issue, allowing everyone to change volume or tracks whenever they wanted. The volume is substantial but not overly loud. It seems crisp enough in quality with a decent amount of bass and the blue tooth range was pretty terrific. My plan is to take it out kayaking so fingers crossed it’s as water resistant as they say.
Hoever, after just four months this thing has started giving me problems. It can only charge up to the third charging light. For the amount that i paid, i expected better.
I love this speaker , sounds great , really good bass. Absolute bargain when it came on offer for £89, i was abroad at the time but ordered it anyway. I have a flip 4 too , update the software by using the app and you can link them , sounds just awesome with the two together.
Good solid quality with a decent sound. I’ll not throw it in the bath to test the waterproof aspect, but would still recommend.
