The Bluetooth version available on JBL GO is the latest and newer than the Philips BT50B. In JBL we can find the V4.1 of Bluetooth where the Philips comes with the still older version 2.1+EDR. The latest Bluetooth makes the connection more stable and better.

In terms of USB, we can find the use of the USB 2.0 Version on the JBL with the port of Micro USB. Again, here the Philips cannot mention the USB Version placed by them in this wireless speaker.

The JBL Go also supports the wired source for the sound. Yes, we can find the 3.5mm audio jack for connecting your external accessories for the sound. Sadly, the Philips BT50B miss these features.

The battery of Philips is more durable and gives longer backup. The fully charged Philips BT can run your playback for 6 hours. This 6 hours sound playback is enough to get under the budget price segment.

For the JBL, then the battery backup is quiet down than the BT50B. It can’t give the playback over 5 hours. Basically, the battery backup of Philips is quite better and longer.

They base the battery type of JBL on the Lithium Ions where the Philips has the Lithium Polymer. Also, there is the USB powered in BT50B but GO lacks it.

Overall, in terms of its power function the Philips BT50B is the best.

(Remember: The battery backup will decrease with an increase in the sound. Louder the sound the battery will drain fast)

Personally, I liked the Philips BT50B rather than the JBL GO in terms of its physical body. Its cylindrical-shaped body looks decent and impressive too. Also, the Philips is lighter than the JBL, it’s just 90grams.

But in the number of colors available, the JBL Go is ahead. We can find this product in 12 colors where the Philips comes in 11 colors.


After getting this short comparison, if you are still in confusion, then let me clear it. I want to mention that if you are in search of a better battery, better design, and portability then definitely the Philips BT50B is perfect for you.

Instead of that if you prefer to go for the better Bass, Sound quality, Connectivity support, and some other factors then JBL Is perfect for you.

Also, we’ve got the price of JBL G0 is higher than the BT50B. So, you have to also think about the price.
