FAQs & How-Tos

  • If you are having trouble with distortion or drop out, try the following suggestions:

    Move the audio source closer to the speakers

    Move the speakers closer to each other

    Make sure the streaming speaker (host) only connects to one audio source, disconnect the Bluetooth connection between the streaming speaker (host) and other audio source

    Make sure the audio source only connects with one streaming speaker (host), disconnect the Bluetooth connection between the audio source and other speakers

    Restart both your speakers and the audio source

    Make sure speakers are away from other sources of wireless signal – you could be experiencing interference

    Re-pair the audio source with your speaker

    If you’re streaming audio content from the internet, the issue could be with the internet connection and not your speaker

  • You will need to dry the charging port completely before plugging in power for charging.
     
  • This product does not feature speakerphone or voice assistant functionality as it does not have a microphone.
  • This speaker does not have an Aux Input, so no analog connection is possible.
  • To reset the JBL Charge 5, Charge Essential or Charge Essential 2: 

    Volume+ & Play/Pause Long press for 2 seconds while the speaker is ON

    Please note: If the Charge 5 was previously paired with any phones/tablets, please remove the speaker from your list of paired Bluetooth devices. Now it has been restored to its factory settings, it will automatically enter into pairing mode the first time you power it on.
  • This product is rated IP67, which is different from IPX7. IP67 protects the product from submersion in 1 meter (3.3 feet) of water for up to 30 minutes. It is also resistant against dust. Dust accumulation around electronics can lead to hardware failure, so the IP67 rating is an extremely beneficial addition to this product. 
  • You cannot download the JBL Portable App on a PC. This app is only available on mobile devices.
  • Your JBL speaker is waterproof with IPX7 rating. (IPX7 means it can survive immersion in 1 meter/3.3 feet for up to 30 minutes.) To maintain the looks and functions of your speaker, please make sure to rinse it with fresh water after using it at a swimming pool or the ocean, then dry off all covers and areas where water can gather. The standard for waterproofing is for tap water. Chemicals and salt in your pool or the ocean can damage the waterproof seals or harm the surface finish over time if not rinsed off after use.
  • If you create a Stereo Pair using the JBL Portable App and you come within range of additional PartyBoost compatible speakers while they are ON, the app will find these speakers. This will break the stereo pair and create a mono PartyBoost group that includes all active speakers that are in proximity. This only happens when the JBL Portable App is actively running on the source device, including when it is running in the background, and when these other speakers are ON. To avoid this scenario, make sure the app is completely closed, without running in the background before coming near any additional PartyBoost speakers that happen to be ON.


    NOTE: The Portable App does not need to be running in order to enjoy Stereo sound from two speakers

  • The new PartyBoost does not support the previous Connect and Connect+ features. For example: You will not be able to successfully connect the new PartyBoost enabled Flip 5 with a Connect+ enabled speaker like the Pulse 3 or Flip 4. You will not be able to connect the Boombox 2 to the original Boombox speaker.
