JBL Charge 2 is rated 4.2314 out of 5 by 121.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than Bose I use this exclusively on the course. The bass kicks in this unit. My only complaint is I wish it had a better no-skid pads - in a golf cart this needs to be placed on a towel or it will bounce around. I've only used it for 1 round. More to come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound, great features Used to have Bose speaker system - this sounds just as good, amazingly. It's easy to connect and has great features like speaker phone and group use. All that at a very appealing price. What's not to like?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I tried to kill it, but it keeps rockin We abused this poor thing by dropping it repeatedly, often in pooled water and once submerged in the Gulf of Mexico. We dried it, put it in the blazing sun....and it just keeps playing! It isn't even the water resistant! I thought about giving it a sea burial so I could buy the bigger/better version. It should get

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's a small wonder Love this thing for many reasons, connectivy is easy and does not drop out like some other BlueTooth devices, holds plenty of power for hours and hours of play, also seems durable, mine fell and hit steel corners and it just slightly dented the front speaker screen but did not affect sound or operation and it was a hard hit ! Perfect unit for lounging in a chase lounge chair at the beach or backyard soaking up rays or when having a small indoor gathering for abeint background music. Worth every penny. Also I believe it would make a great gift.

My jbl charge 2 is 2 weeks old never dropped it nor abused it but it seems to have a static noise coming out of it even when the phone isn't connected. Is that normal? But sound quality seems fine

Asked by: Rey626
If the CHARGE 2 is connected via the 3.5 aux cable and the cable is faulty or the aux output from the source is faulty you will hear some static when no audio is playing on the speakers. If the speaker is connected wirelessly there should be no static noise coming from the speaker when powered ON and not in use. If the noise is still audible even when connected via Bluetooth, please submit a case to and they will assist you in processing a replacement for the speaker.

I bought the product last year and it worked perfectly up until yesterday. Now, right after having recharged the speakers, the power button is lighting up constantly. It doesn't react to any button though. Is there anything I can do?

Asked by: panders
Since the buttons of your CHARGE 2 is not responding anymore, it would be worth it to try and reset your speaker by following this step: Power ON CHARGE 2, then press and hold the "Volume+" and the "Phone" buttons at the same time. When the CHARGE 2 switches off after a few seconds, sounding the OFF prompt, it has been reset. If the reset did not work, assuming you are in the US, you can submit a case to
