Bose Soundlink Mini vs. JBL Charge

I tried to compare both speakers with the best audio quality I was able to reach, without spending too much on a professional recording setup including microphone etc.
This time audio was recorded with a Zoom H1 recorder at a short 50cm distance to avoid too much recorded room ambiance.

Volume on the Bose was set at 65% for best quality, because the sound starts to get worse from 70-75% with particular recordings. The JBL Charge was matched volumewise and both were recorded with the same fixed level.

The JBL Charge can play a bit louder than the Mini also depending on the music played, but sound of the JBL Charge remains overall tinny with hardly any bass at all. The JBL has very clear treble though, much more present than the Soundlink Mini. At high volumes this causes quite a fatigue during listening. I prefer the more mellow sound of Bose.

When you say "JBL Charge matched volumewise", I'm not sure what that means.
Matched by ear or what? I would think for the most objective result, you
would use an accurate (or the most accurate you have available - even a
smartphone) db meter and common input source, and sample at at least a few
different levels in the middle range, then also compare at extreme loud and
extreme quiet, noting both objective db measurements, loudness (via again,
the most accurate meter you have available) and finally a subjective
experience opinion.

Just bought a used JBL Charge and I agree with clavinetjunkie about the
lack of bass. Nice amplifier circuity and speakers but unlike the Bose with
2 passive radiators the JBL Charge uses an open side port.

Based on all the positive Bose responses here I just tried listening to the
Bose Soundlink Mini vs the JBL Charge (the JBL Charge 2 is out now too). I
must say the Bose is a complete piece of junk in comparison IMHO.

The Bose is muffled bass with absolutely no treble at all. The sound is
awful even if it was half the price of the Charge. But it's not - it's
double the price!

Bose earbuds are the same - they have no idea how to get any treble in
their speakers. Maybe it is personal preference but you should really
listen to them both and see what you like.

Very useful job you've done. Thank you for such a vivid comparison! ;-) I
opt for JBL for everyday routine in quiet environment and clear sound not
overwhelmed with bass. If I want to listen loud and bassy - I'd switch on
my 5.1 system with big subwoofer )) I realized recently - I need some time
without too much bass. I don't know how JBL does it, but their sound has a
distinct and very special taste which I particularly like. Bose is fine,
premium sound electronically adjusted to please the majority of people.
JBL's sound has something, that others don't have.

Of course the Bose bass is nice, however its all resonance. The JBL keeps
it more realistic, with a significant bass drop.

This comparison is almost unfair to the JBL, i've listened to both live.

Автор newatthis761 ( назад)
Well I'm undecided. I really like Bose, (and I have Bose earbuds) but I
can't see taking it to the lake. Great for my work desk, but that's not
what I'm wanting it for. The comments are pretty much divided on which
sounds better. So I think I'll go with the JBL that is $50 cheaper and
looks better (as far as taking it to the park or beach). Oh and the jBL
will charge my phone if I get in pinch. Just my thoughts. Like I said I'm
still undecided.

Автор joey ( назад)
I have compared both. In real life my opinion is, the bose has good lows
but lacking in the midrange and hi's, kind of sounded flat. In the
otherhand, the jbl's mid and hi's are good and crisp and clear not as good
on lows as the bose but not bad. So if I think if you are a person who
likes nothing but bass, then go for Bose. But if you like good SQ and
listens to loads of acoustics then go for JBL.

Автор Fred Pilcher ( назад)
The JBL sounds much more realistic. The ludicrously accentuated bass from
the Bose is dreadful!

You need to tilt JBL speak little bit as Bass effect will be more from

@ Clavinetjunkie - If you decide to put up videos on youtube, be man
enough to take people's opinions. Clearly you are a BOSE fan, and thats
completely your right to have your own opinion. Equally, other people have
right to their own opinions. It's appreciated that you put up many
comparative videos of different speakers and I assume you did that
spontaneously to give people some insight. However when you go all crazy on
people who prefer the JBL instead of just accepting their opinions it kind
of takes away your credibility. I mean for someone who tests speakers as
much as you do, you would think that you would understand that ultimately
what an individual prefers to listen to is a matter of taste. I find that
generally people either prefer a bass heavy tone or treble heavy with
little bass and then some people prefer something in between. It also
depends on what type of music one prefers, and not all music has base in
it, it's just a matter of individual taste. As such I'm sure you can
appreciate that one needs to buy a specific speaker for the kind of taste
one likes. There's no point in saying one is better than the other -
ultimately it is subjective. Some people like coffee with milk, and some
like it black.. but at the end of the day, its coffee. I listened to both
speakers in the shop today and personally I have to say I prefered the JBL,
because to me the base drowns out the rest of the melodies in the BOSE
whearas it sounded more balanced in the JBL, which is also much cheaper and
for me was louder. The music i listen to is extremely varied, and it seemed
that the BOSE was almost exclusively for music with base. But that's just
my taste. I think until they can find a way to incorporate a graphic
equalizer into the speakers where one can adjust the base and the treble
for the individual music, no speaker will be perfect and one needs to
decide at the moment based on your individual taste.

I ve bought the JBL after tested out both in an shop.
The Bose seemed to me a bit too bassie and cut the bass at the same time
off at a point. The JBL seemed more balanced to me. This was my first
impression. Then i got back to the JBL and want hear the Bose one more
time. But than i wasn't able to connect them to my Nexus 4 again. I tried
to unpair and re pair, turned BT off on the phone and turned the speaker
off and on again etc. pp. but nothing helped. So i bought the 50€ Cheaper
Maybe the Bose are "better", maybe not. But i am happy now and have no
problems pairing with the JBL. It works even with my Windows 7 Notebook. :)

You can't hear the bass of the charge because the bass port is facing away
from the microphone

Автор berhoids ( назад)
there seems to be a lot of protest against this video, bose started at the
finish line here im sure jbl is good but based on this video, the
difference is vast. but could i suggest the reason for protest could be due
to the jbl subs being side facing, which may effect the potentially
recorded sound here. im just in a big pickle, i dont want to spend £70 more
on something that only has a slight edge which could be the case if the
side sub has effected this test.

Автор adnoHis1 ( назад)
JBL is much better. Don't take this as the reference. Go and check
yourself. I did and the JBL was truly much better than the Bose Soundlink
Mini. Bose is the king of MIDs. Bottom and Highs is nowhere near with JBL.
Hey, you can even check the Flip against the Bigger bose here in youtube
and you will see. I like Bose and I have a couple of smaller speakers which
is great for Movies, effects and so on but if you want to hear the nuances
of music as was intended....JBL!!!!!
