JBL GO 2 Review: Sound, Water, Mic Test, Unboxing!

JBL GO 2 Review: Sound, Water, Mic Test, Unboxing!


JBL Go has been one of the most popular small
bluetooth speaker, and this is JBL Go 2, so this is supposed to be better, because unlike
Rode, where their NTG3 is the professional shotgun microphone but the NTG4 is much cheaper
and lower end, while NTG 2 is cheaper than NTG4, the rest of the world follows rules
that make sense. Hey guys, I am Siddharth, and this is JBL
GO 2 review. In the box, you get the speaker itself, and
before you throw this box away, make sure you take the micro USB cable out of this small
box at bottom. I really like the design of this speaker,
and after using it for some time, I can see why it is so popular. The new version is coated with this rubber
like material, which feels very nice to touch. This will catch oils from your fingers easily,
but a solution I found for this problem was to not touch it when your hands are oily. The white LED it has also looks very nice,
and turns red to tell you that it’s charging. This champagne color looks very nice, but
it also comes in many different colors, which are quite unique for bluetooth speakers. It has this big JBL branding on both sides,
so they really seem to be proud of this product, it doesn’t look bad though, and on the back
it also adds to the grip. This new version is curvier than before, and
I think that it looks better, the front has a metal grill, and the buttons are under the
outer layer, so that makes them accessible but protected from water. And yes, the biggest upgrade from the previous
model is that this is now IPX7 waterproof, so you can use it in the bathroom, or on the
beach, or in a bathroom on the beach and you don’t have to worry about rain or other wet
things that you might have around you. This also means that the charging port, which
should’ve been USB type C, and the AUX input are also sealed with this tight flap that
you’ll have to use every time you want to charge this. The second upgrade this model has is that,
in addition to the single 40mm driver, it now also has a bass radiator, while keeping
the same size, so that’s great to see. It doesn’t make a big difference in sound
quality, but it does make a difference, and because of how it’s laid out, I found that
it sounds better if you keep it like this, instead of this. It has some metal pieces inside, which makes
it heavier so that it doesn’t move while playing loud music, but it’s still very portable and
pocketable. You can also play music with it in your pant’s
pocket, or on your chest while using it in bed. This speaker is very easy to operate, The
power button and bluetooth pairing button are separate, so just a single press can make
it turn on or off with these cool sounds, and it doesn’t require any pressing and holding
like cheaper bluetooth speakers, which makes it much more convenient to use. The other buttons are used for increasing
or decreasing volume, and there’s a play and pause button, which will skip to the next
track, if you double press it, and if you hold it, it’ll launch Google Assistant How
much is 1 US dollar in Indian Rupees?. There isn’t a way to go to the previous track,
but I don’t miss that. The battery lasts for 5 hours which isn’t
a lot, but it should last for longer if you’re listening to something that doesn’t have a
lot going on. Now coming on to the sound quality, it’s great
for its size, but it is not that great for its price. You are buying this speaker, for it’s portability,
waterproofing, design, JBL branding, and the general quality of electronics that come with
that. But you shouldn’t buy it for its sound quality. I’ll give you a sound demo of this now, and
will also compare it with this very well built metal brick of a bluetooth speaker, which
I bought for a thousand rupees less than JBL GO 2, and you’ll know what I am talking about. Now, I don’t recommend this speaker, because
the power button has stopped working properly after 2 years, and now it takes some accurate
positioning to turn on, and that is what the difference is between a brand like Max Pi,
and a brand like JBL. The bass is good for it’s size, but this definitely
isn’t great for electronic music. Only the mid bass will be audible, and it
won’t have the impact that you can have with bigger bluetooth speakers in the same price
range. The mids are very good, and it is really great
for watching TV shows, movies, and YouTube videos like this one. Vocals sound great too, and so does Indian
music. The highs are good, they are very present,
but their quality and definition isn’t very good. It has a single 3 watt 40mm driver, which
isn’t big even for it’s size, and the problem with having only a single speaker for stereo
playback, is that both channels have to be handled by a single driver, so there’s more
distortion. And if there’s a lot going on in your music,
this single driver won’t be able to handle it well, so this is good for music, but it’s
not that great. Again, this speaker is really good for podcasts,
youtube videos, and similar stuff where the voice is the main focus, but it isn’t that
great for music. The volume of this speaker is really good
for its size, and it can fill a small room with sound, the sound also doesn’t distort
at highest volumes, which is very impressive, and it’s also fun to feel the vibrations in
your hands or on your body, as the driver really pushes itself to its limits when music
is played loudly. And now Here’s how the microphone sounds,
it sounds very good and you can easily talk to someone while having this speaker away
from your mouth. I am very pleased with this, and now I am
just speaking unnecessarily so you can get an idea of it’s quality. Here are the specs if you’re interested, and
I was able to walk around 50 feet away from my phone with these in my hand before the
connection started breaking. So in conclusion, I think that if you’re looking
for a speaker of this size, which also has waterproofing, and will be lasting long, you
should go for it, it sounds very good for its size. But if sound quality is your priority, you
could go for something like the Anker Soundcore 2 at the same price point but somewhat larger
size, which I’ll be making a review on soon. If you do not need waterproofing, the JBL
Go 1 is probably a better option, and it also has the ability to be attached to a strap,
which they removed in this new version for some reason. It doesn’t sound much worse than the Go 2,
and should perform similarly well in all areas. So that was it for this review, give this
video a thumbs up if you liked it, my affiliate links to buy this speaker are in the video

  1. Bro JBL is JBL!! if you want to know what i meant just use both of them regularly and then compare them after 3-4 months

  2. My big q is: why on earth does it have a jack??? Or is it a mic port? Getting mine monday so I need to research more ๐Ÿ˜€

  3. I should have listened to this video before buying JBL 2, It's true that JBL 1 is better sound quality than JBL 2.

  4. The max pi speaker doesn't have any of the clarity that JBL GO 2, or even my JBL GO 1, does. Volume, may be. But not the depth, or the clarity that a brand like JBL brings.

  17. Thanks TechReflex for this video. Because of this I bought mine and made a review as well. It is now uploaded on my channel. More power!

  18. "It's also fun to feel the vibrations in your hands or on your body." I agree! One question, I was mesmerized by you more than listening. How long does it take to charge fully? I can never tell. The light stays red then turns off, then I plug it in right away, hoping to see no red light, and it's still red. Any advice? I love this for the music I listen to, mostly anything before 1994. But especially Netflix/Hulu and of course podcasts. This was a gift, used, but a gift, and I don't have a manual. ๐Ÿ™‚

  19. 1. My computer Windows 10. Bluetotoh connection says: '๐—๐—•๐—Ÿ ๐—š๐—ผ ๐—ฐ๐—ผ๐—ป๐—ป๐—ฒ๐—ฐ๐˜๐—ฒ๐—ฑ ๐—ณ๐—ผ๐—ฟ ๐˜ƒ๐—ผ๐—ถ๐—ฐ๐—ฒ'
