Corrie, South Africa. 2 November 2017

Nice and compact - Good sound

Poelpetater, South Africa. 14 August 2015

Awesome (little) piece of technology - value for money - great sound...

Zaahir, South Africa. 23 May 2016

Really good for the price. Don't expect miracles from this small thing, it will sound a bit boxy and there is no bass, it's just pure physics - but for the size and price point, I'm extremely impressed.

Angus, South Africa. 10 February 2016

So far so good.
Great portability, enough volume for my purposes; versatile. Ticks all the boxes for a reasonable price.

excellent, South Africa. 6 August 2017

For a portable speaker it does pack a punch ! Great sound quality given it's so small . Perfect for travel !

Dean, South Africa. 2 August 2016

Solid device. Well built with good battery. Got 6 hours out of mine on a single charge. The sound is amazing for its compact size.

Willie, South Africa. 14 July 2016

I am really surprised with the sound of this small speaker. I have a shock speaker as well and the JBL have a much better sound.
The JBL connect fast to the Bluetooth device (for example to a iPhone).
I did not test how long the battery will last, but it is pretty good.
The speaker switch automatically off after 15min if there is no sound.

Jonathan, South Africa. 27 October 2017

Really like it! Great for listening podcasts in the kitchen or some music in the garage or going camping or playing something at the office at better quality than you'd get on the laptop speakers. The rubbery sides make it feel really durable and it's really nice that it has a built-in battery that lasts a few hours, useful when you just have one port available for either phone or speaker. It seems to have nice speakerphone capabilities too, unfortunately no mute button but that's the only improvement I'd like to see in this device.

Neil, South Africa. 7 May 2017

Great little speaker.

Andre, South Africa. 7 August 2017

Very good value for money

Ann, South Africa. 11 August 2016

Works well in small environment - sound a little blurred when in a more open space.

Hesti, South Africa. 26 August 2017

Great sound quality and really good value for money.

Retief, South Africa. 23 August 2016

Excellent sound, amazing volume, extremely useful as a speaker phone for your mobile phone and can also be used to play music or video sound (although obviously not in stereo)

Nikki, South Africa. 13 June 2017

Very impressed with this buy. Can't fault it in anyway. Great price for what you get. Easy connecting. No disconnections so far. Nice sound.

Michelle, South Africa. 15 November 2017

We bought this for my daughter's birthday. She's hooked up her ipod and loves it. More than enough sound.

Elizabeth (Liza), South Africa. 18 November 2016

My son will love this - it's part of his xmas gift - do know that he liked the one that his friend has

Marcel, South Africa. 19 June 2017

Great speaker for a small room. Ideally suited for an office / study.

Crisp and clear sound, although it lacks bass and thus not suited for outdoor use. Good value for money

Max, South Africa. 27 July 2016

Highly portable. Impressive volume. It's a small, cheap speaker. You get what you pay for (maybe a little more).

Roderick, South Africa. 25 July 2016

Great sound from such a small speaker. Perfect for camping and for some tunes outside in the garden.

ash, South Africa. 16 August 2017

excellent product

Marick, South Africa. 29 June 2016

The speaker was quite a bit smaller than I expected, but the sound quality is excellent. It pairs easily via Bluetooth.

Conrad, South Africa. 5 July 2016

Great value for money - you can't go wrong with JBL.

Talia, South Africa. 4 August 2017

This speaker is a powerhouse for its size and capability. Sound is crystal clear. Perfect for get-togethers outdoors.

Val, South Africa. 15 June 2017

Great sound for such a small speaker. Very portable.

Steph, South Africa. 9 July 2017

Fantastic little speaker. Easy connection beautiful sound.

Noleen, South Africa. 11 October 2017

Excellent little portable speaker. Amazed at the performance for its size.

Delon, South Africa. 8 September 2015

Nice little speaker, quiet loud for its size.
The battery can be charged from a USB port even while in use. I use it over Bluetooth on my laptop, desktop, iPad and Sony Xperia works great!

If you like music with a lot of bass the distortIon can be annoying at times.

Cliff, South Africa. 5 August 2015

The JBL Go is very compact and has great sound for smaller rooms. I would have given it 5 stars except for the battery issues I've had. The first unit I had would keep cutting out after about 10 minutes of playing time, even though I had made sure it was charged. Takealot replaced the unit and the new one is better, but it still seems to use up the battery time very quickly. It's meant to warn you with a blinking red light when the battery is low but mine just cuts off. When I recharge it, it's fine again for about 3 hours and then it shuts off again. Apart from these issues (which are quite significant), the product is excellent.

Nathan, South Africa. 4 July 2017

It's a fun, powerful & loud speaker. But the sound quality is really all that I expected from JBL.

Samantha, South Africa. 22 July 2016

WOW!! What a beast of a technology!! For the size of this little machine is has great sound and worth the normal price nevermind when its on special!! JBL is a great performer in the Audio category unless you have the money for Bose... GREAT BUY!

Graham, South Africa. 1 June 2015

Do not let the price or size of this mini speaker fool you - the JBL Go produces sound better than speakers twice its size. An incredible little device.

Dirk, South Africa. 30 December 2016

Good sound for such a small device. Easy to set up.

Jan, South Africa. 11 August 2015

Very nice little speaker. A little expensive, but good quality and fairly good quality sound. No charger...???

Marumo, South Africa. 16 June 2017

Great little speaker. Decent battery life and loud enough to fill a room. Definitely a great purchase.

Tim, South Africa. 4 June 2017

Incredible little device, sound is beautifully crisp. Just knocked it off a first floor balcony onto concrete, still works 100% and can't even see a scratch. 10/10

carmel, South Africa. 13 April 2017

Wynand Kruger, South Africa. 20 October 2016

Jacques, South Africa. 4 August 2017

I'm very impressed with the JBL GO

Barbara, South Africa. 18 April 2017

exceeds expectation, great buy

Sophia, South Africa. 8 August 2017

Great sound for a little speaker! Works great with Samsung Galaxy S6, however Bluetooth disconnected with Galaxy tab 3 mini.

Perfect little speaker, South Africa. 22 April 2017

I have gone through a few Shox speakers and considering they're not exactly cheap, they were disappointing in terms of sound and quality.
This little JBL GO is incredible really. Fantastic sound and volume from something so petite and the BT connection is great, no disturbances or issues staying connected.
Using this mostly for my car as I'm on the road a lot (have an old car radio that doesn't do mp3 connect to my phone) so I can still play tunes from my phone.

Kate, South Africa. 1 August 2017

Awesome speaker! Sound is better than I expected! Very loud for such a small thing!

Nadia, South Africa. 17 March 2017

Bit smaller than I expected, but this little thing has proved itself worthy. Great volume, quick paring, long battery life. Easy to use

Wikus, South Africa. 20 December 2016

It is a great little speaker. Tested with a Galaxy S4 and Lumia 535. Lumia sound was much better. Ideal for listening at the pool.

Melany, South Africa. 12 June 2017

this product is tiny, but it packs such a powerful punch. i am really impressed with the sound quality considering its size. both thumbs up - highly recommended!

Gavin, South Africa. 25 February 2017

Neat, compact, portable, with an excellent sound. Good value for money. Extremely happy with my purchase.

Henk, South Africa. 30 June 2015

A lot smaller and lighter than I expected. Sound is good and much better than previous products I bought. Even at full volume the sound is clear. Battery life is also good.

Jennifer, South Africa. 7 June 2017

Very dodgy blue-tooth connectivity...disappointing

Thalia, South Africa. 17 May 2017

Easy to use and really impressive sound for the size and price.

Lesego., South Africa. 18 March 2017

enjoying this speaker as I am writing this review. I am not a portable speaker type of a guy but I just have to say, it's a worth every cent I paid for the speaker

Anneke, South Africa. 15 August 2015

Shanesh, South Africa. 1 April 2016

Good value for money!

Stanley, South Africa. 27 June 2017

An epic little speaker! Performed way better than expected. Word to the wise though, be sure to disable the speaker when your not listening to it.

Shi-Hsia, South Africa. 14 December 2017

Good little speaker. Battery life is quite robust. Bluetooth pairing went smoothly with my Android phone.

JK, South Africa. 4 July 2016

Michelle, South Africa. 28 July 2016

Great sound for such a small unit. Perfect for small gatherings or when you have a getaway

Jak, South Africa. 2 August 2016

I got it for R 399 from takealot. Been very impressed with the quality from such a little speaker and also the battery life is actually more than 5 hours from my experience.

Shane, South Africa. 6 July 2016

Brilliant sound from such a small and portable device. I am impressed.

Michael, South Africa. 18 July 2016

Great piece of tech - JBL is by far the winner in this game. Only issue is that I have to keep re-pairing on Windows 10, otherwise it doesn't connect. But that's not enough for me to reduce it to four stars. Go JBL!

Lebogang, South Africa. 15 November 2016

Worth the cost, sound is clear and punchy

Shane, South Africa. 29 April 2017

Fantastic little speaker. Small and convenient. Great to take with to a braai, etc. The sound quality is surprisingly good for its size. Would definitely recommend

tumelo, South Africa. 13 December 2016

nice and very loud

ofentse, South Africa. 2 August 2017

Great sound quality.
Very compack and portable.
easy to recharge and connect.
Long battery life.

I recommend it to anyone who's always on the Go

Gideon, South Africa. 21 October 2017

Amazing little speaker. Powerfull sound for such a small speaker. Worth every cent.

Brian, South Africa. 25 August 2017

This lil fella is so powerful, every time somebody steps into the crib, they hear this powerful sound and start searching for the speaker, the question I'm always asked is "Where is it coming from?" And the lil fella is just in front of them the whole damn time ????????????

tino, South Africa. 3 July 2017

nice and loud

Lerato, South Africa. 9 October 2017

It is a really good product, the sound gets loud (especially considering it's size).
Do not expect to host a party with this thing but it can definitely fit a small group a fill a room.

Beware though, on my product the exterior started peeling off a thin layer of plastic...
Might just be mine specifically though.

Mauro, South Africa. 5 October 2017

great little speaker with nice sound

Thozamani, South Africa. 18 October 2017

Great product, loving it.

eugene, South Africa. 6 July 2017

Great little speaker, with surprisingly great bass and sound reproduction for a speaker of its size.

Jessica, South Africa. 1 September 2017

Surprisingly great sound from such a small speaker. Not badly priced

Robert, South Africa. 12 October 2017

The Speaker is good for the size, but the pictures on Takealot make it look much bigger than it is.
Should have taken a closer look at the dimensions before buying. I kept it and it works well in a small area, but not what I was needing.

Legend, South Africa. 22 September 2017

Awesome little speaker. Small & light, but great sound. Good value!

Di, South Africa. 31 March 2017

What a great little speaker! Excellent sound for it's size. My son can now listen to stories in the garden while jumping on the trampoline. Loud and clear. Would definitely recommend it.

Valerie, South Africa. 6 April 2017

This small speaker is perfect for my requirements, both at work for conference calls and at home for playing music from my iPhone or my laptop. I love the simplicity.

Romeo, South Africa. 4 September 2017

A powerful tiny machine. Honestly, it exceeded all my expectations. Bravo

Daniel, South Africa. 8 March 2017

Quality Speaker

Dylan, South Africa. 6 April 2017

Excellent, it is my most beloved electronic!!!

Amanda, South Africa. 29 September 2017

This speaker does not have the sound quality that people indicate it does in the reviews. It's tiny, which is fine, but the sound quality seems relevant to its size. Really not that impressive.

Khristine Alicia, South Africa. 6 September 2017

Nice size, good buy and product.

Frik, South Africa. 7 March 2017

I tested it to be sure I do not give a faulty gift and let me tell you - besides the fact that I had faith in the fact that it is JBL, this speaker is worth the money and does the job!
