Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just one Word :WOW i’m very impressed. I was so lucky to test the product through the review club, from the time I recharged the product until I turned it on, I was amazed at how easy it is to use and how good the music sounds. The sound from products is very good, you can really hear the good bass no matter if you listen to radio, music from the phone. You can take it with you everywhere you go, in the car, boat, train, to the party ... the only thing i can put my finger on is that the light on the screen disappears for a while. the product I would describe as a small and cute on the outside but inside it is really big and powerful.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sound, thin on features I was in the market for a DAB/FM radio with Bluetooth connectivity, and, having owned and been very pleased with various JBL products previously, I settled on the Tuner 2. It is a very small and therfore very portable, and has a sound which belies its diminutive dimensions. The playback time is very good on a single charge. The radio sounds very good, but, as the Tuner 2 does not have any tonal adjustment on board, it really comes into its own when streaming a mobile device that has an add on equaliser. I surprised at how dim the display is, invisible in outdoor light and no brightness control. I was also surprised at no headphone output, no sleep timer and only 5 presets. Overall, the vast majority of the £90 this unit costs is spent almost entirely on the sound quality. It's not all singing, all dancing, but it does the basics well.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Kompakt reisevenn Veldig lett, men samtidig kompakt og praktisk radio! Lett og ta med seg der man måtte ønske. Fungerer også veldig bra i en våt atmosfære da den er vanntett. (Bassengkanten, baderom eller ute i regnet). Radioen fungerer bra og Scanner raskt etter kanaler. Man kan lett lagre opp til 5 favorittkanaler, som enkelt finnes igjen ved å trykke på tallene fra 1-5. Den kan enkelt kobles opp med Bluetooth til telefonen. Så man har altså alltid god musikk å velge mellom. Lades fort og greit opp med usb! God batteritid. Høytaleren og kvaliteten på musikken når dessverre ikke helt opp for min del, men anbefaler denne lille saken dersom du bare trenger litt radio/musikk til grillingen ute, på bassengkanten, eller en reisevenn langs veien. Et godt kjøp til denne prisen!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound, great package The JBL Tuner 2 exceeds my expectations of a small, portable radio/Bluetooth speaker. The sound quality and volume is exceptional for its size, on both speech and music and all the controls are intuitive. The display is clear and it all looks built to last.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well Am pleased with this so far. Sound quality is decent. USB-C charging is great. Tunes in DAB stations without problem, and works with Bluetooth easily. It's a nice size for use in the bathroom and like the white colour. Buttons are easy to use. My only suggestion is that the buttons are coloured slightly, so that they are easier to see (I need reading glasses to see them properly), however they are large so not a big issue once you learn where they are. People complain about the display brightness, but I think it is fine.

In manual it says 3.5 hours to charge.. i charge it took only 1 hour using 5v 2a of may samsung s5 phonecharger adapter is that ok?

Asked by: Rjld
Bedankt voor uw vraag. Graag wil ik u adviseren om een reset uit te voeren door middel van het volgende: 1- Zorg dat de soundbar aanstaat. 2- Druk nu de Source, Volume+ en Volume- knoppen op de soundbar samen in tot u de tekst “Reset” ziet verschijnen op het display van de soundbar. 3- De soundbar zal nu worden gereset. Zorg ervoor zodra u de soundbar weer via Bluetooth wilt verbinden, u hiervoor eerst de oude naam van de soundbar uit de Bluetooth lijst van uw apparaat haalt. Echter omdat hier gaat om een specifiek geval wil ik u verzoeken om het Harman Customer Support team te contacteren per telefoon, e-mail of chat zodat wij u beter van dienst kunnen zijn. Zie https://www.harmanaudio.nl/support-contact.html#ns (NL) // https://be.harmanaudio.com/support-contact.html#ns (BE) voor meer informatie. Dank u.

Where can I purchase a plug in charger to connect safely and charge from a socket..

Asked by: TheDarkSlayer
Thank you for your question. Any 5 Volt, 2 Amp USB-adapter will work for the JBL Tuner 2. So if you have a regular USB phone adapter for example, this will be perfect. Should you wish to receive further support, you may contact the Harman Customer Support team by telephone, email or chat in order to receive direct assistance. Please see https://uk.harmanaudio.com/support-contact.html#ns for further details. Thank you.

Does the JBL Tuner 2 have a passive radiator like the JBL Tuner?. Thanks.

Asked by: Gumball
Thank you for your question. The JBL Tuner 2 does not have a passive radiator and it is worth noting that the JBL Tuner does not have one either. The new JBL Tuner XL has the deepest bass in the Tuner range at the moment. Should you wish to receive further support, you may contact the Harman Customer Support team by telephone, email or chat in order to receive direct assistance. Please see https://uk.harmanaudio.com/support-contact.html for further details. Thank you.

In one answer in your Q+A it states that using a 5v2A phonecharger will damage the Tuner 2 but in another answer it says that using a usb charger 5v1.2A or higher is recommended. Lower than 1.2A is not recommended. Could you please clarify?

Asked by: Love the Tuner2
The answer to the 5V 2A phone charger question was based on the feature of a fast charger, not the ampere rating. For example, if the spec says 1.2A, any regular USB charger with a rating of 1.2A or higher is acceptable. Lower than 1.2A is not recommended.
