It is by far the best portable speaker I have ever

I have had mine for six months and everyone that hears it can't believe how awesome it sounds!

Disappointing in some ways

By RobP

The sound quality of this device is terrific. What is disappointing is that you cannot just link the device via bluetooth to your computer or phone. You have to download Google Home and Google Assistant to make it work. And, then you have to figure out whether you want Google Assistant listening to you. I can't help but feel that Harman is trying to steer you to Google products. I wish they made a great speaker that works independently.

Failed Within a Month

This speaker was great while it lasted, but became unusable within a month of purchase. Sound quality exceeded expectations, but within a month of purchase, it began emitting crackling sounds and little else.

Worst Speaker

This is without a doubt the worst speaker I have ever purchased. Troubles came right away, wouldn't stay connected, would only turn on while docked. Called for a warranty replacement, the one I was sent doesn't power on. At all, even while docked! This speaker was a dud just a few months after ownership. It should be extremely telling that they don't even sell this speaker anymore. Shame on you JBL.

Useless because of terrible battery life

If I charge it all day, I'll get maybe 45 minutes of play time. It won't even play and charge at the same time. Basically an expensive paper weight.

Don't use outside!

Portable speaker that can't handle the heat. Got this as a bday gift and after a year it died. Found out it was probably because I was using it outside while in my pool when it was hot out and it overheated thus screwing up the speaker. Do not buy!

Does not work

The most finicky speaker I ever had. Won't connect via Google Home, Bluetooth, or the JBL app. Super frustrated. Have never been able to play any audio from it.
