JBL Charge 4 vs Dali Katch (2016)

Analysis:

Two highly trusted sources that perform well-thought-out in-depth testing consider the JBL Charge 4 to be a great product - it earned the "Best for Portable Outdoor Audio" title from PCmag and "Best All-Around" from SoundGuys in their respective Portable Bluetooth Speaker roundups, which is a good indication of it being a notable product.

As for the Dali Katch (2016), it wasn't able to earn a top spot in any roundups from trusted sources that conduct their own hands-on testing. Nevertheless, it managed to impress reviewers at Expert Reviews, TrustedReviews, and AVForums enough to make it onto their respective shortlists.

We examined all of the review data that we could find and first took a look at sources that reviewed both of them, like What Hi-Fi?, and found that they haven't shown a preference for either product.

Then we checked which sources liked these two Portable Bluetooth Speakers best and found that the JBL Charge 4 got its highest, 10, review score from reviewers at Lifewire, whereas the Dali Katch (2016) earned its best score of 10 from Expert Reviews.

Lastly, we averaged out all of the reviews scores that we could find on these two products and compared them to other Portable Bluetooth Speakers on the market. We learned that both of them performed far better than most of their competitors - the overall review average earned by Portable Bluetooth Speakers being 7.6 out of 10, whereas the JBL Charge 4 and Dali Katch (2016) managed averages of 8.8 and 9.2 points, respectively.

Due to the difference in their prices, however, it's important to keep in mind that a direct JBL Charge 4 vs. Dali Katch (2016) comparison might not be entirely fair - some sources don't take value for money into account when assigning their scores and therefore have a tendency to rate more premium products better.
