The JBL GO 2 is far from the best portable Bluetooth speaker we’ve used, but it’s still pretty great. This design is highly water-resistant and features decent audio quality and a speakerphone function. However, the price is quite high and there are better options available.
The JBL Clip 3 is a great option if you value portability and a small footprint above all else, despite the lower overall audio quality. This weeks’ best micro Bluetooth speaker is an astonishingly capable piece of kit, with a striking design that looks good and delivers punchy, punchy sound.
This speaker is fantastic. The sound quality is great, durability is great (you can get it wet!) and it’s easy to use. I’ve had each generation of this speaker and this one is the best yet. Highly recommended. The app is well designed, pairing is quick and easy, and Bluetooth range covers my entire apartment. It’s important to understand that you’re not gonna get crazy sub bass on this speaker.
