Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good sound quality I bought this last year. The speaker has been great. Great sound quality, lasts for hours when fully charged. Maybe up to half a day so it doesn't need to be constantly recharged depending on how much you use it. You can just pick it up and take it anywhere and have instant music in your room. I haven't used it in months and I haven't charged it since the last time and it hasn't lost it's charge.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just great! Picked this up some time back along with the JBL Flip 2 and Clip. And I use this one the most. Battery is great. The quality on the Flip is a tad better but this isn't bad at all. I usually use these as a substitute for my terrible laptop speakers and the fact that it connects automatically to my devices makes using this a breeze. The Bluetooth range is quite extraordinary. I can leave my phone in my gym bag and take these around with my, even pick up calls. Best feature is being able to use 'OK Google' so I can even make calls, ask weather etc. It's better than the clip and just as portable, and smaller than the Flip which makes it easier to bring with you. Just too good for the size and price. I honestly cannot say this enough but just buy this. And no I want paid to say all this. Thanks

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little speaker with a huge, big sound! I bought one of these for my son, who asked me for a speaker so he could listen to some music on the school lunch break. So I went to my gadget store (Fnac) and tested one. I was blown away! As you should imagine, the store was crowded and, nevertheless, the speaker sound was very, very reasonable and loud without being overpowering or distorted. Well, I was so amazed that I bought one for myself. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small but terrible! Am so glad I bought this JBL Go. I enjoy listening to this small speaker. Connectivity is great! Has great sound quality -clear and good bass levels. I tried other speakers in the past but this JBL Go is the best one! You can choose from different vibrant colors too. You can’t go wrong buying this valuable speaker. I would highly recommend this product. Two thumbs up!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Some real sound in small places! I got this for Fathers Day and was doubtful about liking it. I thought it was too small but I had to pretend to love it. After firing it up I could not believe the sound that was coming from such a small place. It does not offer the bass that some speakers have. Never mind, I love it and would recommend it to anyone! My only wish is that it had buttons to skip track forward and back on the speaker.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great sound for a little package was really shocked at how good this speaker sounds. Yes it is very small (easily carry in a pocket) but the sounds is really good. It does get pretty loud but is still clear to hear. This is a great speaker to use at the beach, small picnic, or just any where you want nice sound music. I got mine on sale for $20 and will purchase more if they have another sale.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought this on black Friday for only $20. I'm extremely happy with the sound. I previously owned a JBL Clip and felt the sound could have been way better. I was hesitant about the Go but I think the box design, like an amp on stage, directs the sound perfectly and it's much more rich and full than I would have expected from such a tiny thing. Overall very happy with my purchase and would enthusiastically recommend to anyone looking for a small portable speaker with the sound of a big one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best sound for the money and the size! I bought this speaker with a 30 % discount thinking it wasn't that good because it was discounted. I was so wrong. I am currently using the speaker to listen to music while me and my wife are in the kitchen and when we go out in the sea garden. It makes a party of every event. The sound is loud and clear and battery life is excellent too! Everyone should have one in his laptop bag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Inexplicable sound for it's size I've owned a GO for almost a year now, and I am continually happy with it. I originally purchased it for background music while I work because I don't need a lot of volume. However, I was immediately impressed by the sound produced by such a small speaker. It is awesome. It connects with Bluetooth devices flawlessly and has a very impressive battery life. I may need to order another because my wife is always asking to borrow mine. Keep up the great work JBL!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from For what it’s worth, it’s great I luckily got this product when it was on sale for $20 with free 2 day shipping, and I love it! For a small speaker it works really well! I use it at home and at work. It has good highs and lows. The sound quality surprised me. If you are looking for a loud, bumpin speaker this is not what you want. Try looking into the JBL flip

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it. Still I think this little speaker is a best buy. Compact size, quality materials, the sound is (of course not the best) far good enough. Cheap. Fast delivery.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value I give this 5 stars as it is excellent for what it is. Of course this little box is not going to perform like one of the larger bluetooth speakers by JBL, but for someone sitting at a desk this product sounds very good. I would buy this again after having owned it for a couple months.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing little powerhouse! Bought this for my upcoming holiday and tested it at home and wow the sound quality and volume is just superb for such a small device.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sounds fantastic for it's size Purchased this for playing music at work in my office, so simple to connect to my phone, everyone loves it and several people have bought one for home use. It actually does last the full work shift, i charge for the first hour or so then switch off - so far after roughly 9 months of proper all day constant use the battery has shown no signs of slowing down - been a life saver to be honest, no sure what i would do without it.

Product Q&A

Hello, my JBL GO turns itself off when I'm playing to music occasionally. When I re-open it I can listen more like 2-3 mins, then it goes off again. I'm sure it's not because of the low battery, because it happens while I'm charging it as well. Anyone?

Asked by: Kiddbora
hello, please turn the volume uop significantly and let the Go play for a while. It could be the volume is too low and then the Go will be shut down to save energy. br, Rob

Can I buy 2 speaker, and connect both of them to my android phone ? I want to use them as stereo speaker.

Asked by: ossy
Bummer it's not officially supported. I can't believe how awesome this little speaker is, I'd buy a second for stereo in a heartbeat! You could use a 3.5mm Y cable - from one 3.5mm stereo port to 2x3.5mm mono - these cables are hard to find, a friend of mine soldered one and is running 2 JBL GOs off it. There's stereo to 2x mono cables that have 2 6.2mm outputs, and one could use a 6.2 -> 3.5mm adapter on them. Considering it. But it's a wired-only solution, no wireless.

Hello, How long should I charge it? how to know if it's fully charged? and How to charge it? plug it into the PC is enough? or can I plug the cable into my SOny mobilephone charger and charge it?

Asked by: Malekazar
The GO’s charge time is 1.5 hours from 0-100%. When the GO reaches full charge, the diode goes dark. It is completely safe to charge the GO with your Sony charger, and will actually charge the unit faster than plugged in to a USB port.

Hi, i bought a new one and charged about 1,5 hours. After full charge, when i am listening, the red light continusly on. İs it problem ?

Asked by: Limitor
The LED indicator on the GO should turn blue once fully charged. If you are using the GO while plugged in, there are some instances that the unit would go on and use the battery once fully charged, and after a while the LED indicator would turn red indicating that the unit is charging.

Would this be safe to use in the shower? Would the steam effect it?

Red light burning after removing charger

Asked by: Dakshina
If you mean the red LED light blinks after removing the JBL GO from the charger, that means the battery is still low. If it has been charging for a few hours and the light still blinks red, try using different USB charging cables or plug the charger on different charging ports/power outlets. If it will still not work, try doing a reset by following the instructions below: 1. Power on the JBL GO. 2. For 3 seconds, press and hold the Volume + button, and the Bluetooth button at the same time. 3. The JBL GO will power off, and is now reset. 4. Pair the speaker again with your device.

Hi, can I use this speaker with a jack to play music from my phone while it's charging from my computer? And how can I tell when it's finished charging? Thanks in advance.

Asked by: Enrica
The LED INDICATOR for the GO will still remain red while charging and playing music at the same time. We do not recommend you using the speaker while it is being charged, though, to avoid depleting the battery, making the play time shorter. You will know if the GO is done charging when the red LED light goes off while plugged in to the charger.
