I have been, or can be if you click on a link and make a purchase, compensated via a cash payment, gift, or something else of value for writing this post. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
This shop on enjoying music to the fullest with a portable, bluetooth speaker has been compensated by #CollectiveBias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone.
Music is a BIG thing in our house. While we enjoy playing instruments, what I really love is to have great music readily available in any room in the house. For years, that meant I’d have to drag a BIG boombox to the desired room, find a spot to plug it in, and then insert a CD or tape … very old school compared to the new portable, bluetooth speakers available.
Now we have joined the digital age in our family with boys who own iPods and parents who now have smartphones. That means we can create our own playlists from our music collection OR stream music on the device. Either is a big step up from worrying about media being damaged while a well meaning child totes it around the house. Have you had to ‘fix’ a tape when the player started to eat it or explain to a crying child that their favorite CD will no longer play because they accidentally damaged it? However, the built in speakers on those devices are not enough to fill a large room with incredible sound. So we got a small portable speaker which has since been ‘permanently borrowed’ by my eldest son who loves his music, too.
What’s entered our house to help make the holidays filled with awesome music for this mama is the JBL Charge 2 Speakers. This speaker has blown away my expectations for a portable speaker. The bluetooth feature will let me connect one of our smartphones and I love that I can plug the phone into the JBL Charge 2 Speaker for charging rather than worrying if I’ll drain the battery before I am done listening to my music.
We have been starting to deck the halls of our house which definitely calls for holiday music playing in the background to create the desired effect. I don’t even have to let the location of an outlet dictate where I place the speaker! This speaker fits perfectly on a small table near our dining table and can be heard across the entire ‘great room.’
Once it is connected through bluetooth, I just need to pick my favorite playlist or streaming service and we are good to go. We might be listening to holiday music right now to keep the festive spirit, but I can see some mom and son dance parties happening this winter with my 5 year old.
Right now, the JBL Charge 2 speaker is only available on the JBL.com website. However, shopping for it is SUPER convenient. No need to leave the house and battle crowds at the store just to find they ran out. You can do a little online shopping and have this bluetooth speaker delivered with no charge for ground shipping, free returns this holiday season (30 days), and lifetime support. That sure is an easy way to be #GiftingAudio this year!
Now that I have my early Christmas gift to myself, I need to start putting my Christmas CD collection onto my phone. I can’t wait to listen to classical guitar, Cajun, and contemporary Christian artists along with beloved favorites like Bing Crosby and the music from Charlie Brown Christmas without needing to have a CD player.
With the included case, I can even tote my new speaker with me wherever I want to share some holiday cheer. Sure looking forward to when it is done and I have my favorites at my fingertips! Plus, I will be adding some music for romantic nights at home or away.
Don’t miss your chance to win one of the JBL portable speakers to enjoy over the holidays. Enter now as this incredible giveaway ends soon!
