Rated 1 out of 5 by from not worthy the price 1.Some paperwork arrived in chinese language 2. display not visible when outside, there should be dimm option to make it brighter (escpecially for this price range) or simply stronger to simply see it. 3. delivery time took more than 10 working days. 4. I tried to track the item, but after trying to do so after 12 times I gave up. I tried many different things- no chance 5. there are 5 station to set what is definetely too few. There should be at least 10. Today we have houndrets of stations. Among them are talk and music. 5 is too little, as I said. 6. Speaker very weak- for this price, 7. At the ned why to pay 80-90£, where the other can do better and cheaper and when you unhappy they will send you the money back or new one. I assume for 3 letters JBL. 8. I will not make any more mistake by buying any more products from JBL, that belongs to Hartman, that belongs to Samsung, that belongs to ... I do not know.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tuner2 vs Tuner1 My brother has first generation and I bought the second. First generation has more bass and 2 speakers and second generation 1 speaker and bass reflex not the best but hey is a radio not a boom box . Charging second generation is usb type C which is more durable than micro usb from 1 generation.I am happy with it but would have been the best if the speakers and bass reflex was kept like on the 1st generation

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice compact radio Fast easy delivery. Radio is compact but reassuringly heavy, suggesting a good build quality. Comes with a usbC cable but no plug. Charges up no problem. Easy to set up and store favourite channels. Telescopic aerial which extends to a fair length but when in a strong reception area only needs to be flipped up from the back and not extended at all so less likely to get damaged. I am no sound expert and will never need to pump up the volume but I am perfectly happy with the sound quality. I have yet to use it for any length of time so can't comment on battery length.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not 100% refurbished Was very happy to find a Bluetooth speaker with the added benefit of a radio. Purchased a refurbished one as the description said it would be as new but there was a dent on the front and I couldn’t be bothered with the energy of returning over the Christmas period with a lockdown so will keep it anyway. Otherwise the battery seems to last quite well although I had it on a low volume mainly and it’s easy to use and does go quite loud. I like that it has rubber feet on the bottom but you can also stand on either end. Volume can also be controlled by your iPhone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound and initial problems quickly fixed Overall i am very impressed by this speaker/radio. Sound quality is great and the rest of the features are impressive for the cost. Had an initial problem with the DAB channel list (menu would timeout whilst scrolling through list of found stations meaning only a few could be selected). Only took a couple of days after contacting customer service to receive a firmware update which fixed the problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stor lyd i liten høyttaler Er overrasket over hvor god lyd det er i den lille saken.. Det kommer klar og fyldig lyd med bass du ikke forventer av en slik liten høyttaler. Radioen/Høyttaleren er liten og er lett å ta med seg. Kjekt med USB-C, trenger ikke noen ekstra lader da jeg bruker laderen til mobilen. Enkel å betjene. Men litt lite lys i displayet om du er ute i solen. DAB radioen fungerer også bra.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Product doesn't work I bought this item 6 days ago. Charged it. Took it to work the next day and it was flat. Charged it again and noticed when I turn it off it comes back on after about 20-25s. See video. Device is useless as a portable speaker.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent radio and speaker This is a great radio with an excellent built-in bluetooth speaker. It's easy to switch from a radio show to listening to an audio book etc on your phone. For future versions I suggest making the controls easier to see - they are embossed on the white surface and are hard to make out in a dim light. Also please put the on/off switch on top rather than at the side. A final suggestion is to incorporate a bar to which a small carrying strap could be attached.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow - great sound quality! Ordered the Tuner 2 as was looking for a USB rechargeable DAB radio for our camper van. Had the unit in my hands for an hour now and am blown away by the sound quality! Plenty of bass from such a small unit. Excellent. Easy to set up and use too. Bluetooth speaker functionality is an added bonus.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy! Purchased for my husband for Christmas. We are gardeners, and have radio 4 plugged in all day, my husband gets in a knot with the headphone wires. Very good sound, however the speaker is on one side only, so sometimes outside, if it's a bit windy, it's difficult to hear if you're stood in the wrong place. Very portable, it's been in every room in the house. Not needed much aerial extending. Bluetooth works well. We have a small caravan, so it will be well used there too.Very impressed. Good battery life.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Genial Radio Jeg har hatt radioen en måneds tid, Den tar inn kanalene bra, det er ikke alltid en trenger å ta ut antennen. Positivt at den er vann og sprutsikker, samt at den lades med USB-C. Displayet kunne kanskje vært litt mer lettlest.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best tuner && bluetooth speaker I've ever owned! I don't rate products quite often, but I have to leave my thoughts for this speaker here. This tuner is just perfect. Sound quality is amazing, bluetooth connection is stable and connect in just fraction of second without any dropouts. Some suggestions I'd like to make for next generation (if there will be a one, probably called tuner 3) : 1. add a sleep timer 2. add options for adjusting display brightness. 3. add a pause button. All right! I am going to enjoy this product. Thanks JBL!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I've been testing this for a couple of weeks now and I like it very, very much! It's quite small, but has great sound! The combination of bluetooth and DAB is perfect for my use. The possibility to switch between a podcast and radio is great. It is supposedly waterproof, but I haven't tested this. But this feature makes it just as good on the bathroom or beach as in the home office! Great product, will absolutely recommend it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great compact radio Bought this to replace my old DAB that had died. The sound on the JBL radio is incredible considering how small and compact it is. Crystal clear sound and works well both in the house & garden. Power last for ages when we use it in the garden and the Bluetooth is easy to use. Great radio and a great price too!

my little jbl receiver has stopped picking up dab. Keeps saying no signal. I have tried it in all different locations. Can any body help???

Asked by: Dougal77
Dear customer, Thank you for contacting Harman Customer Service. I am sorry to hear that you are experiencing DAB signal problems with your TUNER 2. Based on the information you have provided, I suggest you try the following: Setup: Try turning your radio on and off. If this does not work, a complete re-scan may be necessary. See the manual for specific instructions on how to perform the scan. Built-in antennas Make sure the telescoping/integrated antenna is fully extended. Try moving the radio around to see if you can find a better position where you get good reception of all the stations you want to listen to. In most cases, the supplied telescoping antenna should be perfectly suited for outdoor or nearby use. If your radio reception is poor, you may want to consider an external antenna for better reception quality. Even in good areas, an external antenna will ensure optimum performance and also provide consistent listening quality. Please note that not all products allow the connection of external antennas. External antennas If you have an external antenna, a radio signal will always lose some of its strength as it passes along the cable and through the connectors. It is important to minimize the losses by using good quality cables and connectors. Make sure that all cables between your radio equipment and the antenna are properly connected. The antenna must be designed for DAB reception - universal antennas may not be tuned/calibrated for the frequency band. Most problems are not caused by "interference" sources. Interference is rare and often mistaken for a reception problem. If the problem persists for some time, it is probably a reception problem, not interference. If it happens intermittently, but your reception is otherwise good and it affects your neighbors' reception at the same time, it is more likely to be interference. If the sound starts to crackle or cut out completely, or if you have lost a radio station, it may be due to one of the following reasons: - There is a defect in the transmitter. - You are in an area with poor signal coverage. - The positioning of the radio and/or the telescopic antenna needs to be adjusted. - A cable or connector is damaged or has become disconnected. - A problem with your antenna installation. - Your unit needs to be readjusted. - A source of interference. National and local radio services Large DAB service providers often group their stations into a national multiplex. Although these usually include national stations, specific local channels may be broadcast via a different transmitter. For example, a private commercial multiplex. This can lead to local and national services having different coverage. I hope this helps you to solve the problem. If you need further assistance, please contact us back in the the following link: https://support.jbl.com/gb/en/ Sincerely, Jesus EMEA Customer Service Harman Lifestyle Division

Asked by: Valter
Yes, you can use the charger of our JBL Charge 3 speaker. A USB charger (5V) with 1.2A or higher is recommended to be used for charging our JBL Tuner 2 as mentioned in our spec sheet. For example, if the spec says 1.2A, any USB charger with a rating of 1.2A or higher is acceptable. Lower than 1.2A is not recommended.
