What customers say about "Key Specs"
JBL GO 2 Portable Bluetooth Speaker
  • Small and powerful with a great rounded sound. Very impressed with sound given small size. Highly recommended.
  • Connection with the smartphone works fast & easy. Looking forward to experience the livespan of this thing. Hopefully many years.
  • It charges relatively quick and I’ve never had a connection issue to date.
  • Battery life is really good, even more than what's advertised.
  • I tried to connect it to my phone but it failed to connect. Now suddenly it will turn on and then immediately turn back off again but without making the turning off noise.
JBL Clip 2 Waterproof Portable Bluetooth Speaker
  • The battery life is pretty good, I use it for 8hrs a day and charge it every 3rd day.
  • Very durable, long battery life/charge and good quality sound.
  • The clip is handy and I can go quite a distance from my iPad or phone and still maintain a solid Bluetooth connection.
  • The battery life is pretty impressive for the size of the device and the amount of volume it puts out.
  • The battery life far exceeds all the other portable speakers in my house, by a lot. It will easily last for hours (around 8 according to the instructions) even with the volume up and it charges very quickly.

What customers say about "Features"
JBL GO 2 Portable Bluetooth Speaker

What customers say about "Interfaces"
JBL GO 2 Portable Bluetooth Speaker
  • It’s a great looking unit, robust and well made, great user interface and battery life - colour is awesome too!
  • AUX is a really good way of listening to my music in the car, and not having to rely on dodgy reception of dodgy radio stations.
  • The interface is very convenient and easy to use. In minutes I can increase or decrease the sound without the help of a phone.
  • The port for usb broke after a month of use. Now you have to put on charging for a long time so that the cable charges the speaker.
  • Unfortunately, but this speaker cannot be used as a powerbank.
JBL Clip 2 Waterproof Portable Bluetooth Speaker
  • The carabiner clip and the built-in aux cord make this speaker all the more convenient!
  • It brings an aux cord as well, it’s super versatile. If you don’t want to use your Bluetooth you can just connect it through the aux cord.
  • Love how the aux cord is already on the device, and neatly hidden.
  • Pairs easily. Sounds good. Looks good. Shipping was quick. Aux cable is convenient.
  • I love the design. The wrap-around aux cable is awesome.
