- Beyond amazing sound quality- May 3, 2021
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The jbl charge 5 is the best speaker I have ever heard! The sound is crystal clear, you can actually hear every instruments or small noice in the background. I have never heard sound more clear on any device. I was listening to sports radio on my phone and the interview was muffled and I didn’t know what they were saying, I turned on my speaker I could understand every word it is completely incredible!! The volume is amazing I can hear my speaker in the basement and throughout the house even with it on the 2nd floor. You don’t even have to turn the volume all the way up and it is the loudest speaker ever. The battery life is amazing I love that I can listen to the speaker for days and never have to charge it. My daughters favorite feature is that she can charge her phone through the speaker. It’s so convenient I am always having to bring a portable charger everywhere I go but with this speaker it is built in and the portable charger stays home it’s outstanding. This speaker is water proof and dust proof which is a feature I greatly appreciate. I am in love with this speaker and everyone who has seen and heard my jbl charge 5 is impressed. I can’t say enough about how amazing the sound is, I have never heard music the way it sounds through this speaker. It feels like the artist and all the instruments are in the same room, if you close your eyes you wouldn’t know it was a speaker and not live in front of you, my sports radio broadcasters feel like they are sitting right in front of me talking to me that is how crystal clear the sound is. I was especially surprised how well older songs with less quality sound, I have never heard oldies sound so good! I always love jbl products and expect good quality but they even blew me away with this speaker it is above and beyond!Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- Durable for Outdoor use- April 21, 2021
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I needed a new speaker for work but needed something durable.I was hesitant to get this because looked too sexy to take to industrial environment.I took a chance and glad i did.Not only is this a beauty its a beast.The build quality is top notch the rubber sides and grill make me feel confident it will hold its own out here.Battery life is great i currently work 12 hours due to being short handed during pandemic and it has about 25% battery at end of shift while playing at about 75% volume.The type C charging port charges it up real quick about 1 hour or so.I haven't got it wet but i have got it dirty.Overall im happy and recommed if looking for something rugged yet pretty.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- Excellent Sound- September 22, 2021
Liked it so much I bought a second to use in the party/stereo mode in my 40 x 40 workshop. Great tonal quality with the addition of the tweeter for classic rock and sixties/seventies music. Would highly recommend the JBL Portable app for firmware updates and entering the party or stereo mode.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- Absolutely Incredible for the Size- April 22, 2021
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I am typically not a speaker consumer, but after using the Charge 5, I am finding so many ways to use it. For years I have enjoyed JBL products - primarily headphones and earbuds. However, this device, along with its amazing quality, price point, and set of features, will make me a fan and purchaser of their small(er) speaker line of products. The dimensions (8.5" wide x 3.5" high) were such that I figured it would be a fun speaker to have on the golf course with buddies. The sound was so deep, rich and loud that it didn't take long for the buddies to ask what this was. We listened to a variety of our catalogs - below were the big takeaways: -Notorious B.I.G. - While the bass was powerful, the treble of the lyrics was not lost -John Denver - Instrumentals came in clear, loud and crisp. Even at this price, I would have expected some "tinny" sound, but the music sounded like it was live at a concert. Another added plus was the USB-C plug. Faster charging, and as more and more devices (at least from a Pixel phone user), tend to support it, it never hurts to have compatibility between devices for charging. As I said, I'm usually not a big fan of these devices as I like to have music restricted to just my ears, but this has so many applications: shower/bathroom, sound bar, backyard bar-b-que, garage, etc. I would highly recommend this speaker, especially given the price point and the amazing sound.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
