How to Reset JBL Go 2 Bluetooth Speaker

We show you here how to reset a JBL Go 2 Bluetooth speaker, to restore it to its default factory settings.  Resetting restores this speaker to factory default state.  Plus, it erases any earlier paired Bluetooth devices from the speaker’s memory. Clearing these stops the speaker from pairing to any nearby Bluetooth devices after the reset. Also, you might reset to make it ready or sale or re-gifting, or to stop it from pairing with devices you no longer wish it to pair with whenever you turn it on.
