Harman, which is the holding company of the brand JBL has recently launched the JBL Go 2 which is the second edition of the JBL Go Bluetooth speaker in this series. After the success of the first model of this Bluetooth speaker series, owing to its compact nature and sound quality of the device, the company is introducing the second iteration of the speaker which will come in many colour options and will bear a price tag of Rs 2,999. The speaker is going to be available across all major electronic and retail outlets in India along with retailing at 350 Samsung brand stores across the country.
The main highlight of this new speaker is its IPX7 rating which means that the speaker will take on general spills and splashes with ease without any harm and will also be able to withstand 1 metre of depth in a pool for 30 minutes. The speaker will be a good choice for people who want to listen to music near the pool, or in the shower.
