JBL launched a bunch of products at CES this year, but few looked to be as promising as the Charge 5. Part rugged Bluetooth speaker, part power bank, the newest entry in the Charge series has much to offer, but it’s a lot more spendy than your average Bluetooth speaker.

With a new look, a little more ruggedness and improved sound, the JBL Charge 5 is one of the best Bluetooth speakers — just not one of the cheapest. The JBL Charge 5 is a very good Bluetooth speaker.

It took me a few days to wrap my head around the key stamp that this product makes upon the Bluetooth speaker market: it’s really two products in one. You can charge any USB-equipped device—be it a smartphone, tablet, game controller, or even some laptops—using the Charge 5’s pass-thru.

    Solid sound quality, Built-in powerbank is very useful, Dust- and water-proof

The paradox of choice is ever present in the bluetooth speaker world. When looking to buy one, you’ll be faced with tons of options to the point you may feel so overwhelmed and spend weeks researching before you get the slightest idea of what you want.

This portable Bluetooth speaker delivers astounding audio considering its relatively diminutive scale. Our main criticism is its somewhat boisterous looks and the long four-hours recharge time. Otherwise this blasts out the bass, all while being rugged and waterproofed for use wherever you please.

  • +

    Poignant and bassy sound for this size of unit, Fully waterproof and dust-sealed, Decent battery life

  • -

    Can't deliver below 65Hz, Design quite boisterous, No 3.5mm input this time, Slow recharging

I have never written a review for anything before, but I’ve always said I would for this speaker so I’m finally getting around to it. I bought the JBL Charge 3 a long time ago when it first came out. I didn’t know what to expect, but I have been absolutely blown away.

I owned the charge 3 before and absolutely loved it. Buying the charge 5 was an easy upgrade. It's loud, durable, and has great battery life. Because it is very directional in how the sound is put out it allows you to enjoy clear loud music without being a nuisance to others.

I got this a few weeks ago and I love it. The sound is deep and clear. Right now I'm using it in the kitchen while washing dishes but it's going outside as soon as it gets warm. Its not too bulky and the box it arrived in has a magnetic closure to keep it secure.This is a totally worth it speaker!

We've had the JBL Charge 5 for a couple of months now and it is very versatile. For a unit this size the sound is excellent. Good for outdoor spaces with small groups. Easy to throw in a beach bag or or kayak hatch. If you need deep, thumping bass, go for the Boombox.

These things sound awesome. I don't know why people complain about the JBL app. I had absolutely no trouble pairing two of them together. The sound quality is comparable to larger outdoor speakers but these are small enough to place on small shelves mounted high in the pool cabana. Awesome product!

I am amazed at how great the sound is! My kids love to see the side "!" marks boom with the music. The fact that I can charge my phone from this speaker is a total bonus, making this speaker so useful. Overall I am so pleased with how great my music sounds and the quality of this speaker.

DESIGN: This is a superior design compared to the previous models of the Charge series. It's shaped perfectly so that the sound disperses favorably regardless of positioning (vertical/horizontal). This is also simply a more aesthetically pleasing design with the subtle orange on black.
