JBL Flip 4 Bluetooth Portable Stereo Speaker – Grey : Great speaker at moderate to loud volumes

This is a tremendous product. Nice range and great volume without distortion.

Sound is fantastic, great piece of equipment and quick delivery. Quoted a week and came within a couple of days.

After buying the jbl xtreme. Which really kicks out the noise, i bought the flip4 as it is smaller, lighter, and more suited to carrying while hiking for days on end in the hills. It is robust, has a great sound, and the battery life is pretty good too.

Good looking product and sound packs some punch – not quite shindig but definitely hootenanny levels of noise. Slightly heavier than the go version but that’s the price you pay for having a bit more grunt.

  • Great speaker. Switching On/Off volume still way too loud, like the previous version.
  • Excellent. Bought 2 and I love them
  • the sound is very impressive better than my JBL charge 3 the subjective con I

Clear sound, great volume and bass for the size i take it with me a bit everywhere. I had the flip3 but it got stolen and i bought this one finding that: the went from “splash proof” to “water proof”, i mean, what are the odds to drop your speaker in a pool or in a bathtub full of water?.On the other hand they didn’t modify the volume of the switching on/off sound, which is stupidly loud. So loud that if you want to listen to some ambient music late at night you need to switch it on in another room. Not to mention that if you want to switch it off before falling asleep.

The bass is not as good as i expected but overall sound quality is not bad at all. I’ll update the review i’ve listened to this speakers more.

Perfect speaker, i just love the sound quality. After using it i am feeling like jbl should provide fm radio receiver in the next version.

Best speaker i’ve purchased in years, amazing bass range and the sound output is incredible.

Sound quality immense – have had nose speaker previously and this blows that out of water.

I was apprehensive about buying a portable speak, but after i read the reviews for this speaker and went for it i’ve not regretted at all. It’s amazing and the sound quality for the size is next to non. I will recommend this product a 100%.

Good sound with surprisingly solid bass and reasonably loud. Nice chunky, solid feel, although the exposed speakers on the ends good do with a grille. Overall, a high quality product.

This one replaced an older model, but the improvement on the sound is palpable. It fills the room with clear and convincing sound with tangible clarity.

I tried a few portable speakers for my longterm travelling and this one was better than the flip 3, but i bought the libratone too at the end.

This jbl flip 4 stereo speaker is simply amazing for anything audio. I have listened to various types of music from my spotify account and the speaker as superb bass and mid range and just the right amount of treble. Watched a film and the sound was pretty much as if i was there. So i have no hesitation in highly recommending it. The construction and build is equally as impressive and of top qaulity, it as good weight to it and would say it’s robust is design. I however did buy a case for it too and for a cheap price, this is also of well padded and strong construction. The speaker is also damn good value for money and the price does vary from different sites. Mine was sold by richer sounds and very impressed how it was packaged and delivered promptly.

I did some intensive research before buying this speaker. I compared it to many other similar speakers and i’m so glad i chose this one. Excellent sound quality, love that it’s waterproof and battery lasts ages.

The speaker was delivered very quickly, and with no problem. The sound has a great quality, very deep bass, and much better than just playing music from a phone. Very easy to connect to bluetooth straightaway, and arrived fully charged. A good size, as it’s not too big to carry around, or take on holiday if i wanted. The on and off sounds are quite loud and unattractive however, so if you’re listening to calming music, then turn it off, it’s quite loud and sudden. Tip – when opening the box, the charging cable is tucked in one of the vertical ends. As it’s also wrapped in black cardboard, it blends very well into the box interior cover, so i initially had trouble locating it. Overall, i would highly recommend for the quality of sound, and reasonable price.

Massively good sound considering the size of the speaker easily fill a room great powerful bass good sturdy construction easily portable. Very happy with this purchase the sound quality is extraordinarily good much better than i expected well worth the price good construction looks great sounds great easy to recommend.

These speakers are amazing, especially as a present for someone. Thanks to bluetooth, and the speaker‘s functionality e. As external music sharing, they can be connected to every device when listening to accustics.

After a dodgy experience with the ue boom, i replaced it with this speaker and i’m so happy i did. The sound is much better and none of the dodgy, annoying glitches i had with the boom. Recommend you chose this if you’re debating between the two.

Excellent sound for the size, looking forward to trying out in the shower with it’s high level of water resistance. Perfect for music, work around for car sound system without bluetooth or audio jack input. Initially kept the box for storage, but have recycled that now because we use it so much it never has a chance to be stored very long. Good customer service and price with sale from this amazon reseller as well.

These came and happily i can move on lol. This little thing can fill a room. I often go to house party and take over terrible music with this bad boy. It’s so small yet so load the whole party just accepts. I am the dj now (captain philips ).

Fills my living room, small device packs a punch.

Over the moon with this, top quality, the sound is very impressive better than my jbl charge 3 the subjective con i can find is, the treble could be toned down slightly but there’s an easy fix to this that will not void you’re warranty, so overall is definitely recommend this, my best portable speaker to date.

Can’t fault this product at all. Great sound , features and handy size.

Sound quality immense – have had nose speaker previously and this blows that out of water.

Bought for xmas for my daughter. She loves it, taking it to music festivals and traveling around europe, and i expect annoying her neighbours with it at uni. She says the sound is really good and it’s one of the best presents i have ever bought her.

There are loads of cheap bluetooth speakers on the market but it’s a case of ‘you get what you pay for’. The jbl flip 4 is a superb speaker which connects effortlessly everytime. Battery life is good and the sound is superb. It’s reassuring heavy and feels like a quality bit of kit (which it is).

Great product is recommended i love it delivery like always on time.

Thinking of buying two more to join them to the 2 i have already. I teach yoga and i play my playlist through these speakers. I play at a low volume so the battery life is super fantastic for me.

Good sound with surprisingly solid bass and reasonably loud. Nice chunky, solid feel, although the exposed speakers on the ends good do with a grille. Overall, a high quality product.

Great quality, easy to use speaker. Due to its size it lacks depth and bass at lower volumes, say for background use. Once wound up it blasts out the tunes with a surprising amount of clout. I thought our neighbours were having a party when i was outside but the wife had it on in our kitcheneasily fills rooms with music and would be great at parties paired with another. Pairing process is easy and quick and no problems pairing with a iphone7.

Was debating between this and the ue boom 2. So glad i chose this, the sound is so much clearer and the battery life is fantastic.

Good speaker, great sound no distortion.

Great sound super portable bit expensive can buy cheaper b ut not with a good back up like amazon.

Bought for my 18-year old grandson who loves it – and he’s not just saying that to please grandma.

JBL Pure Bass –

This was a present for my son who is thrilled with it. Good quality sound it seems.

This speaker is the best bluetooth speaker i have ever heard the bass is amazing and sound tremendous the only fault i have is you can’t skip to the next track with the speaker you need your phone.

This is a tremendous product. Nice range and great volume without distortion.

Absolutely brilliant; how can you get so much into so little.

I tried a few portable speakers for my longterm travelling and this one was better than the flip 3, but i bought the libratone too at the end.

One of the best things i’ve ever bought. I now play all my music from my laptop any where in the house and into the garden. But the sound is absolutely stonking and i would recommend it to any one.

Superb sound quality from a device so small and comparatively light. The battery lasts for many hours and i particularly like the ad-hoc grouping feature that allows for multiple flip speakers to work in unison (apparently up to 100).

Massively good sound considering the size of the speaker easily fill a room great powerful bass good sturdy construction easily portable. Very happy with this purchase the sound quality is extraordinarily good much better than i expected well worth the price good construction looks great sounds great easy to recommend.

I debated about getting the extrem version, however the extrem is much bigger than this and husband wanted something compact.

Sound is fantastic, great piece of equipment and quick delivery. Quoted a week and came within a couple of days.

Great speaker, use in hpuse or garden. Can be used to make calls, voice commands via blue tooth.

Fills my living room, small device packs a punch.

Brilliant sound quality, deep bass, good voice, brilliantly loud, rarely need more than half the volume. Would recommend this over any anker speaker if you’re serious about sound quality.

Great product, nice color, the packaging is top-class. It’s charging pretty fast and lasts for a few good hours. Don’t worry about splashing liquids on it, the speaker won’t mind that :).

The sound quality on this is amazing. I have used loads of these speakers and this is definitely the best at this price range.

Bought for sons 15th birthday, fast delivery, well packaged. Son very please with the look of speaker and the sound especially the bass. As a mum i can testify that when i’m downstairs in kitchen and he is in his room with it on it’s very loudlooks good, sounds good, good value for money.

The bass is not as good as i expected but overall sound quality is not bad at all. I’ll update the review i’ve listened to this speakers more.

Great sound and looks great. The charge seems to last so long and im so impressed.

The app to join multiple speakers together is rubbish.

JBL Charge 3 Portable Bluetooth Waterproof Speaker -, Fabulous – As Good as my Sonos

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.

This was a present for my son who is thrilled with it. Good quality sound it seems.

Sound is really good quality, very powerful volume and a powerful bass, relatively light. Sound quality so good i always connect my ipad to it when watching a movie or listening to music even when its not necessary because its so satisfying.

Great product is recommended i love it delivery like always on time.

Superb sound quality from a device so small and comparatively light. The battery lasts for many hours and i particularly like the ad-hoc grouping feature that allows for multiple flip speakers to work in unison (apparently up to 100).

JBL Boombox Portable tooth Speaker, Incredible but not overwhelming bass.

Clear and rich with bass you can feel. It’s portable but in a luggable kind of way.

I spent in total about 350£ and its totally worth it. My ears had an orgasm first time i played boombox. Upgrading from charge 3 is really a huge upgrade. Everything is jus perfect but 2 minuses. -it smells like raw 1 year old fish-too big to keep it in backpack (that’s why i will keep my charge 3).

The sound that comes out of this is sublime. If you are a bass head looking for a home solution you can simply look no further. Because of the size this will be at its best at home, or out camping (with your car parked close by). Full, warm, not intrusive to the other frequencies. No distortion, no cutting off when loud. Hands down to jbl for the price tag, if that was a harman or a bose or any of the overpriced names it would be double the price and still be a bargain. Do not fall for the supposed hi-end brands, they mainly sell heritage and name.

Comments from buyers

“Incredible but not overwhelming bass., sturdy and well-made, High quality worth its price”

The speaker feels extremely rugged, sturdy and well-made, with good quality materials. Indoors rocks, outdoors it feels like something is missing, although still pretty loud and more than enough (unless you plan to host a party with 50+ people). I took off 1 start because i consider the price to be way out of line and unjustified (i would have never paid £400 for it, i bought it at a temporary 50% discount when it was out of stock, so i only paid £220).

I own both the jbl charge3 and xtreme speakers and when the boombox was released i immediately purchased it. Boombox uses bt+ which can link up with other bt+ devices such as the charge3 but unfortunately due to the firmware in the xtreme v1 it cannot link with the boombox. The boombox is a perfect outdoor party speaker as we have used it several times with excellent results and with its 2 sound scenes (home/outside) the bass is incredible but not over whelming. Battery life is superb and the quality is great. It’s not something you would want to carry around as it’s quite big.

I am currently listening to this thing in my sitting room. It’s better than sonos soundbar and 2 x sonos 1’s. I have hit some of my daughters tunes, uptown girls, cats, bit of air on a g-string. Summer by the pool is going to be amazing. (it’s got an indoor and outdoor function yet to be tested but that’s not going to make much difference this is a seriius but of kit) well worth the money.

The sound is amazingly good for the size. The bass is very present, maybe so to a point where the musing sounds a bit muffled. I tweked equalizer i’m spotify on all my devices and the sound is now just great.

Typical jbl sound for static or mobile use.

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:).

Brilliant bit of kit, great sound, easy to use. One of the best gifts i have ever recieved :).

Little bit “boxed” sound with reasonable amout of bass heavy enough for size, good mids and hights. Great battery life for one charge. Also battery holds charge long time when you are not using speaker. I like body outdoor waterproof factory build.

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.

I’ve had the one speaker a while but bought another and if you have one either side of the room it makes so much of a difference in sound.

I bought two to use in stereo. Impressive bass for their size.

Good sound, easy operation, robust.

By far the best purchase or made in a long time. I definitely recommend this speaker.

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.

A brilliant little speaker works well with amplified musical instruments as well xxx.

Great sound; good connectivity.

This item was delivered 18 hours after i ordered it. It is stylish well packaged and has an excellent sound.

Great sound from such a small speaker.

Every thing about this speaker is great, good size, great sound, already thinking about buying another one to link together.

I like loud music with good bass, but this has exceeded my expectations of what a portable speaker could do. Beats both my family’s soundbars in volume, and the bass is on par with the best one. Very tempted to buy another or two for the surround sound link system they have.

Powerfull , amazing sound quality (better than any other portable speaker in this price range).

This is the only bluetooth speaker there is to own. Would give 6 stars if possible.

JBL Boost TV Ultra-Compact Wireless Home Cinema Speaker System : Treble is good without being metallic or tinny like cheaper bars

Very good, highly portable, great quality wireless speaker. I’m not a big audiophile but it’s good to have decent sound from the tv particularly when watching a big movie or streaming music and for me this speaker delivers. Music playback in particular, is very good. It’s also very well made- excellent quality in fact- is a neat size, looks good and is easy to set up. The bluetooth function is really useful too for connecting devices and other speakers to it. The sound quality for me, personally, is more than good enough and one of the things i like about a speaker like this, is it’s portability. It’s easy to transport around if you are going somewhere where you want a sound facility/system pumped up a bit. You get a small remote with the speaker which is handy and the whole package is great.

Excellent sound as a bluetooth speaker, rich, deep and loud but disappointingly underdelivers for tv sound. Harman’s portfolio of legendary audio brands includes akg®, harman kardon®, infinity®, jbl®, lexicon®, mark levinson®and revel®, so with this credibility this jbl boost speaker steps up to the mark. Let me explain, i like to think i have an ear for a decent sound and can be quite fussy. In bluetooth mode my ipad music library burst to life as this jbl beauty boomed not just a very decent volume but with deep sound, bass and rich clear mid and top range – it sounds pretty good. Impressive across adele, rn’b, rock, mor and classical it does it all very well, and that’s up against my faved bose soundlink mini. . This is heavily promoted as a boost for your tv speaker, a sound bar that promises:’jbl display surround technology creates surround-like effects” home theater tv. Elevate your television sound experience with jbl boost tv’s deep bass, virtual surround sound and dolby digital for hd movies’but for me it doesn’t deliver this at all when connected to your tv. In fact it does do what it says on the tin and ‘boosts’ your volume, it does that fine, yes the dialect sounds clearer, but ‘surround sound’ and ‘immersive room filling’ – i am afraid not.

I’m not someone who professes to be an expert in speakers but i think i can judge a decent sound quality from a rubbish one. This system is a compact sound bar designed to boost the sound from your tv – and also working as a bluetooth speaker using a simple switching system. It’s fairly foolproof to set up though one thing i found slightly disappointing was the fact that it’s only mains supplied. I think i would personally pay a little more to have the connectivity and portability of a rechargeable unit – which would make moving it about it use outdoors for example a lot easier. Getting back to the sound – the sound is decent and better than the speakers on our panasonic tv but i don’t think this will replace a proper surround sound system. In fact i prefer to use it with the bluetooth capability to listen to music from my iphone. There are more expensive systems out there and i think this is a decent offering from a well regarded brand. The spec is fairly basic but it achieves what it sets out to do- can see this being great for watching movies at home – not quite a cinema effect but good enough.

Portable, easy to set up and a good sound. This arrived well packaged and with all the cables i needed…. Including, to my pleasent surprise, an optical lead and 3. Firstly, my televisions existing speakers are fairly poor – so this small cinema speaker system was a welcome addition. I found the set up and connection was relatively easy and the sound quality a clear improvement on my existing set up. The bluetooth connection to my ipod was seamless, with an excellent sound. I am sure there are top end alternatives that perform to an unbelievable quality – but for the price, i was certainly happy with the sound this unit provided.

Very compact and improves the quality of sound coming from the tv. Being able to play ‘blue tooth’ from my ‘phone is a bonus.

JBL Boost TV Ultra-Compact Wireless Home Cinema Speaker System with Bluetooth, Optical and 3.5 mm Connectivity – White : Great sound improvement over my sony’s onboard speakers.

I considered which star to give this for a while, and as close as i am to a 4 it didn’t quite hit the mark. First off construction is ok, there were no obvious issues however it just feels a bit cheap in hand. The speaker is as the title suggests very compact. You get a small remote which i found fiddly and uncomfortable as it needs a good bit of pressure to register the push. There are plenty of connection you can use 3. Optical is the proffered solution as it offers the best quality. I was not overly impressed by this. I think if you were travelling or needed the portability then it’s anot appropriate solution however there are much better sound bars for the same or less money. Yamaha do a really good budget one. The sound is bass heavy and whilst vocals and treble do come through it all becomes a bit muddy at times. That said the sound is better than most budget tvs but if you have a mid range or above the sound from your tv will likely trade easy punches, if not win over this.

This is a powerful and fairly small speaker. In the box you get the cables that you might want to use: i am pleased that it comes with these. Setup is a breeze, and the handy remote control is a useful feature. I have it connected to my tv using the optical cable, and it really is a great boost to it. The sound is clear, and while the bass is not as heavy as i’d occasionally like, that is to be expected — bass can only ever be properly provided by a separate speaker. Everything was superbly packaged up, and the speaker itself is attractive. A great addition to the aural armoury.

Treble is good without being metallic or tinny like cheaper bars. Not a cheap sound bar / mini speaker but the build quality and performance justify the price tag. Treble is good without being metallic or tinny like cheaper bars. All in all a good balanced sound to fit the speakers various roles as a tv soundbar or music player. It effortlessly fills a room with nuanced sound. The bluetooth connectivity works very well and it pairs easily with up to 3 devices. Once paired, it connects without fuss to your device. Contrary to what you might read, this speaker is not supported by the jbl connect app and so can’t be joined with other speakers in the range, but as a stand alone speaker it excels.

Great sound improvement over my sony’s onboard speakers.

Comments from buyers

“Small dock/speaker but big sounds!, Good for boosting poor PC sound, Beware of noise when charging”

Small dock/speaker but big sounds. I was looking for a good looking small speaker which would charge my 30gb ipod – this was the best looking (i had seen it at a family member’s house, it fitted behind one of their lamps but gave great sound). This product doesn’t disappoint, is reliable, good sound, enough to fill a large hall, yet small enough to go on holiday with you. It has a remote control, which is not really used as you have to have good knowledge of next track etc, or be near the ipod to see what’s on next. A great price for a great product, very impressed. Definitely would recommend and buy again.

Sounds great and looks real sweet but three quite annoying issues, 1/ large black transformer bulbous bullett device on the lead immediately coming out of the back of this so however you place it on shelf or furniture you are faced with this ugly black sausage immediately behind the unit, 2/ the on/off switch is at the back, hard to get at and see so hard to operate without turing the whole thing around. 3/ when moving ipod from room to room, particularly when refiting ipod to this sounddeck, it is hit and miss as to whether it connects – the socket connects fine and sound, but the internals are erratic in accepting the link, resulting in you multi pressing the volume button only for it to suddenly blast at you. Whole thing needs refining, but sound is good. Well i think i’d recommend friends to keep looking.

Arrived in good time and in perfect condition. Also item creates a sound only jbl seem to have mastered. A tiny sound system with a big sound, suited to travel – perfect.

Can’t believe the sound quality for its size. Agree with the other positive reviews, really loud for such a small item and the sound isn’t tinny either. Also comes with a 1yr manufacturers guarantee.

Good for boosting poor pc sound. Bought the jbl on stage micro ipod speaker dock mac/win white as it had many reviews, and seem to be quite good. The sound is in my opinion quite powerful, and more than enough for a small london flat. But when the volume is up, i have to agree with some of the reviews, that the sound quality gets a but mushy, and the bass is not that great. But overall, i am quite happy with this purchase, as ii wanted this to boost up my pc’s poor volume, which could barely allow me to watch a movie, and understand what was being said. Now i can enjoy watching films with great sound, and get my ipod charged as well.

Considering the price compared with other speaker docks, this gives very good sound and also charges my ipod nano 4g. The remote has full functionality.

Jbl on stage micro – good sounds. Easy to use, comes with a handy remote and adaptors to suit different players; sound quality and quantity is really good for something so small.

I liked the jbl stage micro the first time i heard it. It’s loud and clear especially for it’s size with good bass response which isn’t electronically enhanced. The remote’s quite cute too, although i don’t know if i’ll ever use it. All in all good value ( if you’re paying about £60 ).

Randomly shuffles in middle of song. I was so delighted to find this item. I have a nano which i use for teaching. The sound from these speakers is fine for my purposes, but there are 2 problems. First (very minor, but annoying) the battery plate on the bottom does not stay in place securely. Secondly, and this is a big problem,when using the speaker dock, the ipod randomly switches into shuffle mode mid-song. There is a little computer-y doodle sound then off to some other random selection. Not helpful for classroom demonstrations. This never happens when i use only headphones with the nano, so it must be the dock.

Beware of noise when charging. This products sounds great for its size. It works very well to provide external speakers for my mac. Unfortunately it makes some annoying (albeit low level) noises when my iphone is plugged in. The problem is well described elsewhere on the internet and persists even when the phone is in airplane mode. For this reason i use the on stage as a docking station only when it’s switched off (it will still charge the iphone when switched off) or run off batteries – making it considerably less versatile than advertised.

For the size and price i was astonished at the great sound quality for both speech and music. I bought this for my bedside table so that i could use it for listening to internet radio but i can see it coming down to the living room quite often. My ipod touch will fit it while still in its case which is a bonus. The remote control is brilliant. The unit itself is neat and looks good. It has about 2 metres of cable so it will reach the electric socket easily. It can also run off batteries making it portable and it comes with a carry case too. You can also connect it to your laptop to enhance the sound & it certainly improves greatly on my laptop’s speakers. I will be using it when watching catch-up tv.

Fantastic product for such a good price. This is a really great product. Not only was it a really great price but so small you can take it anywhere. It’s surprisingly powerful too.

JBL CONTROL 2 – Brilliant – easy to set up

Now i’ve got all my cds on a nas streamer, the problem arose of how to play music in the conservatory when the hardware is in another room. Once the cds are ripped and stored they are put away so i don’t want to start digging them out again on the odd occasion to play on a system elsewhere. These seem to fit the bill exactly. With the jbl reputation for quality they have solved the problem brilliantly. Now i just have to plug the sender into the headphone socket of my amp, switch on the speakers and away we go. I can now access all my cds without having to root around for them. And the beauty of it is that the jbls can be moved to any room and i can still listen to my music stored on the nas. I didn’t want to go to the expense of something like a sonos set-up and this does the job for occasional listening. For serious listening sessions i use the main system but with a glass of wine in the conservatory of an evening these do admirably.

Arrived promptly, well built easy to set up and great sound quality. Would reccomend this to anyone wanting good quality sound in a location away from your main sound system.

Great wireless speakers, sound fabhad them for years.

  • JBL Control 2.4 Review
  • Why less, rather than “wireless”.
  • Lacking Transmitter pre amp?

Really good quality & sound. I have a set of these outside to bed able to listen to music in the garden, and a set in the kitchen inside. I have an onkyo surround sound that has two separately controllable zone outputs, but they are not amplified. These speakers i have hard-wired back to the unit, and also used the wireless part to be able to hook up a mobile phone / mp3 player for music. The integral speaker amplifier is more than capable to deliver good quality sound with a fair bass response. I never have a need to turn them up flat-out, and i like loud musicin addition they come with wall-mount brackets and therefore take up no kitchen (or other) counter space. I bought my first set around 5 years ago, they have been outside all that time and still work like new. In short, they work really well – produce a good crisp sound and are very versatile. Full marks for a great product.

I connected the transmitter to the analogue md/cd record output on my yamaha av receiver in the lounge, so that my wife can hear the radio or tv in the kitchen. (tv and fm reception is bad at our location so a separate unit would require external aerial cabling)only negative is the on/off switch on the power input lead, fitted very close to the speaker plug. With speakers set on top of wall cupboards, it is difficult to reach. There is no off switch on the remoteincluded are wall mounts. I did not use, but they look good. Output is totally in sync with that from the digital surround sound system in the lounge. Volume is separately controllable.

Lacking transmitter pre amp?. The first reviewer is correct about having to use the head phone connection as there is no in built pre amp in the transmitter. If you have a av amp with rca pre outs it will not work, well i couldn’t get mine to operate via these connections and if you use the head phone socket it will cut off the feed to the speakers. I’m stuck really because i wanted to use these as rears from my av amp to save speaker wires running under the carpet. I could get it to work from the line out but i need this connection to drive my active sub as its sits close to the av amp and the av pre out is used to connect to my stereo cyrus amp so this amp can drive the front speakers. Having said this about a fundamental problem the quality of build is good and the sound they product is also fine giving there relative size.

Why less, rather than ‘wireless’. . Ok you don’t need cable twixt the transmitter and speakers, but you have to connect the ‘master’ speaker to the ‘slave’ speaker with normal twin wire cable. There are products on the market whose speakers are truly wireless and where no cable is required. That aside, this system is high quality in it’s field and works well. I put my system into the conservatory together with an led disco light for use on party nights. There are a good few watts of music power, more than enough to upset the neighbours and to send the dogs scurrying for cover. . I will place the speakers outdoors at bbq time and impress the girls while i shimmy as i cook, yuk.

The jbl speaker set proved to be a welcome addition to my existing stereo, the sound quality is excellent for this size of speaker. The only negative comment i would like to make is that the range of the remote control handset is limited to just a few metres and that you must be careful where you mount the transmitter if you are to avoid breakup of the signal whilst in use.

Once it is set up and working it is great. You would never know the audio source is wireless and the speakers themselves are good. Due to their size, they are a bit weak on the bass side. However, i noticed they had a subwoofer output and i bought a subwoofer and connected it. That took care of low end and i can now call the final effect ‘hi-fi’. There are however some ‘features’ you need to watch out for:1. The input to the transmitter has to be a pre-amplified signal. So it will not work from say, the ‘tape-out’ of an amplifier, only the headphone jack. Even then, if the volume is too low, it will not transmit.

Arrived promptly, well built easy to set up and great sound quality. Would reccomend this to anyone wanting good quality sound in a location away from your main sound system.

I brought these speakers for my ipad. I have fitted them into the kitchen and they have been superb. We now have a decent sound system which is wall mounted and does actually sound very good. It’s a great alternative to a docking station for the ipad, and we also use it for our radio in the morning, just plug it into the headphone socket and away you go.

The jbl speaker set proved to be a welcome addition to my existing stereo, the sound quality is excellent for this size of speaker. The only negative comment i would like to make is that the range of the remote control handset is limited to just a few metres and that you must be careful where you mount the transmitter if you are to avoid breakup of the signal whilst in use.

JBL Boost TV Ultra-Compact Wireless Home Cinema Speaker System, Portable, easy to set up and a good sound

With my phone it was very good. With my tv which is just a flat screen type but a small one, it improved the sound considerably. It increased the volume and made it sound much less ‘tinny’i cannot comment on how it would work with a super new large tv – as i do not have one.

Great sound improvement over my sony’s onboard speakers.

I needed a small speaker to put on my kitchen shelf under my 32′ sony bravia. I looked at sound bases and bars but could get one small enough to fit. I had sought of accepted that i was going to have to sacrifice quality sound for my kitchen. Then i stumbled across this. After tons of research on it i was still unsure. There were some proper audiophiles having their ten pence worth and finding faults left right and centre. In the end i hit ‘add to basket’ and waited for my what i thought would be a tinny,bass less, brash sound enhancer. The day arrived, i connected it up via the optics lead and proceeded to play suicide squad on the tv. I was dumbstruck by the sound. For something so small i was flabbergasted by the quality it throws out. Deep rich tones filled my kitchen. Then i fired up spotify and connected via bluetooth. Wow streaming music was even better.

Comments from buyers

“Easy to connect up – note i had not connected , Even the virtual surround sound is fantastic. I also have 2 of the smaller JBL , A treat for your ears.”

Portable, easy to set up and a good sound. This arrived well packaged and with all the cables i needed…. Including, to my pleasent surprise, an optical lead and 3. Firstly, my televisions existing speakers are fairly poor – so this small cinema speaker system was a welcome addition. I found the set up and connection was relatively easy and the sound quality a clear improvement on my existing set up. The bluetooth connection to my ipod was seamless, with an excellent sound. I am sure there are top end alternatives that perform to an unbelievable quality – but for the price, i was certainly happy with the sound this unit provided.

Easy to connect up – note i had not connected. Very compact – doesnt look cheap. Easy to connect up – note i had not connected anything via the optical cable before and could not understand why it would not connect in the hole until i realised the plastic bits on the end where packaging which you have to remove first. The instructions could be better – they are just pictures. I had to look up on the internet for better instructions on setup of syncing remote controls for the tv. Once setup im happy to say the quality of the speaker is good, you can turn it up quiet loud and responds to deep bass on movies will for a tiny unit. This is a good product if you want to simply boost the power of your tv speakers.

I considered which star to give this for a while, and as close as i am to a 4 it didn’t quite hit the mark. First off construction is ok, there were no obvious issues however it just feels a bit cheap in hand. The speaker is as the title suggests very compact. You get a small remote which i found fiddly and uncomfortable as it needs a good bit of pressure to register the push. There are plenty of connection you can use 3. Optical is the proffered solution as it offers the best quality. I was not overly impressed by this. I think if you were travelling or needed the portability then it’s anot appropriate solution however there are much better sound bars for the same or less money. Yamaha do a really good budget one. The sound is bass heavy and whilst vocals and treble do come through it all becomes a bit muddy at times. That said the sound is better than most budget tvs but if you have a mid range or above the sound from your tv will likely trade easy punches, if not win over this.

The musical side is not fully convince, but to the function for which it is born takes full 5 stars.  hello friends today in testing a product, to integrate your tv and not only that, i have been slow to publish the review, because first i wanted to get a clear picture of the product, functions, and especially the quality of the emitted. Good visionpackaging: ?????almost complete, but cmq deserves full marks are inside:>the tv boost>modular power supply with socket italian and english>optical cable not too long including>3. 5mm pin jack cable not plated short time>remote control already supplied batteries (we just take off the safety tab that protects the contacts of the same to make it work)>manual, minimal and no italian language :-(————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————–quality / materials: ????the side of the plastic sound bar, are shiny and it seems not very high quality, however, they give a nice effect to the eye, while the main building, all-metal (covered with a textured nylon at a very pleasant honeycomb) leaves a good feed assembly and robustness. Excellent also the part of the upper buttons, rubberized but very solid and functional. On the bottom we have another rubber insert, large which does not allow the soundbar to move and have an excellent grip (i like the coloring that detaches on black, orange as jbl brand)————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————–functions: ????the use and operation is simple, we have it connected via optical cable for most of the test time (as well as the video demonstration), as soon as we feed the top button is acende in stand-by mode. Speaking of buttons we have the possibility to set different function (identical contained on the remote), which>on and off>key to set up the connection bluetooth>button to emphasize in dolby surround sound effect made it or disable it>dedicated button to connect wirelessly to any other speakers jbl (only those of jbl are compatible with this function)>+ and – keys to raise and lower the volume>key to swichare from what source the soundbar should take the sound source, if we connected either via the tv thread that previously a bluetooth device (the example in the video to make you clear the operation). ————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————–performance: ?????we tested (plus video demonstration) for several days both for listening to film both for music listening, the 5 stars are deserved, especially compared to the performance and price. . It must be said that on the music side shows the weaknesses in the most obvious way, but what about the use for which it was conceived, listening to film, it’s really nice, so much so that, although we can not compare it to un’impianto home 5. 1, the performance and perception (especially when we emphasize the part dolby sourrround with the key) it is phenomenal. In conclusion if you do not want to spend so much on un’impianto full dolby, cmq remains obviously superior, and above all to integrate your tv, speakers a listen that begins to make sense, this jbl is seriously worth considering. ————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————–liked: ?minimalist and compact appearancequality and volume emitted mainly in the vision of the filmsalmost complete setmaterialsi did not like: ?the side plasticthe listening limits of musical reproductions————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————–p.

I’m not someone who professes to be an expert in speakers but i think i can judge a decent sound quality from a rubbish one. This system is a compact sound bar designed to boost the sound from your tv – and also working as a bluetooth speaker using a simple switching system. It’s fairly foolproof to set up though one thing i found slightly disappointing was the fact that it’s only mains supplied. I think i would personally pay a little more to have the connectivity and portability of a rechargeable unit – which would make moving it about it use outdoors for example a lot easier. Getting back to the sound – the sound is decent and better than the speakers on our panasonic tv but i don’t think this will replace a proper surround sound system. In fact i prefer to use it with the bluetooth capability to listen to music from my iphone. There are more expensive systems out there and i think this is a decent offering from a well regarded brand. The spec is fairly basic but it achieves what it sets out to do- can see this being great for watching movies at home – not quite a cinema effect but good enough.

Excellent sound as a bluetooth speaker, rich, deep and loud but disappointingly underdelivers for tv sound. Harman’s portfolio of legendary audio brands includes akg®, harman kardon®, infinity®, jbl®, lexicon®, mark levinson®and revel®, so with this credibility this jbl boost speaker steps up to the mark. Let me explain, i like to think i have an ear for a decent sound and can be quite fussy. In bluetooth mode my ipad music library burst to life as this jbl beauty boomed not just a very decent volume but with deep sound, bass and rich clear mid and top range – it sounds pretty good. Impressive across adele, rn’b, rock, mor and classical it does it all very well, and that’s up against my faved bose soundlink mini. . This is heavily promoted as a boost for your tv speaker, a sound bar that promises:’jbl display surround technology creates surround-like effects” home theater tv. Elevate your television sound experience with jbl boost tv’s deep bass, virtual surround sound and dolby digital for hd movies’but for me it doesn’t deliver this at all when connected to your tv. In fact it does do what it says on the tin and ‘boosts’ your volume, it does that fine, yes the dialect sounds clearer, but ‘surround sound’ and ‘immersive room filling’ – i am afraid not.

Even the virtual surround sound is fantastic. I also have 2 of the smaller jbl. Dont bother with any other makes. Even the virtual surround sound is fantastic. I also have 2 of the smaller jbl charge units which i linked together.

This is a powerful and fairly small speaker. In the box you get the cables that you might want to use: i am pleased that it comes with these. Setup is a breeze, and the handy remote control is a useful feature. I have it connected to my tv using the optical cable, and it really is a great boost to it. The sound is clear, and while the bass is not as heavy as i’d occasionally like, that is to be expected — bass can only ever be properly provided by a separate speaker. Everything was superbly packaged up, and the speaker itself is attractive. A great addition to the aural armoury.

Very good, highly portable, great quality wireless speaker. I’m not a big audiophile but it’s good to have decent sound from the tv particularly when watching a big movie or streaming music and for me this speaker delivers. Music playback in particular, is very good. It’s also very well made- excellent quality in fact- is a neat size, looks good and is easy to set up. The bluetooth function is really useful too for connecting devices and other speakers to it. The sound quality for me, personally, is more than good enough and one of the things i like about a speaker like this, is it’s portability. It’s easy to transport around if you are going somewhere where you want a sound facility/system pumped up a bit. You get a small remote with the speaker which is handy and the whole package is great.
