If you just need a good sounding portable speaker with heavy bass range and no wires then this might be a good option, but far better sounding units out there at less price if you don’t care about not having a JBL tag.

However, they advertise if you buy two, you can configure one for left and the other for right channel operation. Forget it. First it’s not easy as they force you to download a special “JBL connect” App. Which is required to reset the speakers each time as they keep defaulting to mono mode. In addition, the app is next to worthless as it keeps having problems recognizing any speakers are present requiring many many attempts to connect.

Finally, in order to actually use this piece of crap software you first have to agree to TWO (2) totally separate licensing agreements, which are about 1000 pages long and describe all the snooping they plan to do regarding when you are using the speakers, the other connected devices, where you are physically when you are using them, and also agree to let them send you all kinds of JBL and third party advertisements to your email address. The most recent Federal Budget had fewer legal terms, conditions, and far less pages than these speakers require!

Please explain why a very basic utility program needed only to reset default settings on something you just purchased suddenly requires the same licensing and usage monitoring as purchasing MSWord or Excel?.

Save your money, and don’t blame me if you think I’m exaggerating.
