I’ve spent countless hours researching various Bluetooth speakers in this price range, and nothing else comes close to the JBL GO in terms of quality and value for money. It’s an excellent choice if you want to listen to some music on your phone or tablet while you cook, clean, or even work out. It’s waterproof so you can even use it by the pool or at the beach!
