Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good sound, easy using We love this sound box. We use it to her music or audio books espacially our children. The connection with smartphone is easy and smart. I like the sound. It is enough for a room with a few people in. Even the bass is also good by hearing music. The battery is strong enough for hearing music a few days. I would recommend the box for hearing music in a good quality for a good party (even outside) or using it for a lot hearing sessions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Bluetooth Speaker I bought the JBL Charge Essential 2 about a month ago. Overall, I am very happy with that device as it suits to almost every space, and you can use it indoors, outdoors, and even if it is wet outside. I used it in several situations like woodworking, car repair, or being out with friends. Let’s get to business. The loudspeaker does what it should. The Bluetooth connectivity is amazing. Around 20 meters with my phone in the pocket it did not loose the connection. The pairing process is as with most other devices. The design is great and simple you find the necessary buttons on top, the charging connector, and the USB slot for charging secondary devices, which you might have with you, is at the back behind a rubber sealed cover. Most of the time you will connect it with your mobile, but it does not come with any app to adjust some settings. Within this price range it is ok for me but using your mobiles equalizer will also change your personal settings, which you maybe use with other devices. As known from JBL devices the bass is a bit too much. I had to adjust the mid tones and high ones in the eq to get the best results out of it. The possible volume is impressive. You can turn it so loud, that speaking with someone is no longer possible 😉 As it comes with a power bank the device is quite heavy. It is like an extra bottle of water in your backpack. Summarized I don´t regret buying this. It has its specific purpose. It gets 4 of 5 as the missing app and the sound performance does not meet my personal preferences. I think if you buy a device which comes with a mobile app, it is even more interesting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Box I've had this box for 4 weeks now and I love it. The box is a perfect size and you can easily take it with you on the go. The battery lasts a long time and the sound is excellent. It also looks very nice and recharges very quickly. It's also great that you can easily connect your smartphone to the box for charging. All in all, an absolute buy recommendation.
