I compared many (JBL Charge, Jawbone Jambox, Bose SoundLink and Beats Pill) at a local retail store and after an hour of listening, comparing and connecting to each I decided to purchase the JBL Charge. I was very surprised with the quality of the sound compared to the other three. It had the right amount of highs and lows for my ears. The other three were just to low (to much bass) that when I cranked up the volume the sound became very distorted unlike the JBL where it just got better and better. After my purchase I immediately when home opened, connect and listened for a couple of hours straight. On another note that has me really impressed me with the JBL is I visited a friends house for a BBQ and there were two of the other units there (Jawbone & Bose) and we compared all three at the same and boy did others at the BBQ really rave about the JBL for the quality of the sound; even those that owned the other two units! They all said the highs were really impressive with just the right amount of bass. Three key features of the JBL charge that made my decision were: 1) Price $149 (Jawbone $199 & Bose $299) 2) The design and size were just right for me (Jawbone was to small, Bose was to large & Beats was just an odd shape) 3) The battery life is 12 hours, even though I have not been able to put it to the test it also has the capability of charging your phone at the same time if it was put to the test as I know my phone would not outlast that (Jawbone & Bose 3-4 hours with no options to charge your phone). I did play it for 4 hours while charging my phone to a full battery (from half charged) and there were still 2 lights lit out of 3 for the charge status. In just the couple weeks I have owned it I have been very pleased and will continue to take to any function and/or event I attend to show and share its great sound and options!!!

LOVE IT!!

By Hercule08

from South Bend, IN, United States

Comments about JBL Charge 3 Portable Bluetooth Speaker:

I had been contemplating a small bluetooth speaker for some time. After due diligence I had narrowed it down to the Bose Soundlink Mini, the UE Boom, and the JBL Charge.I eliminated the UE Boom when I found out that you cannot replace the battery should the need ever arise. While I still think that the Bose had a slightly better sound range, I simply could not justify the added cost. I finally pulled the trigger when JBL offered the Charge for $129 with free shipping and I have not regretted my purchase. The Charge is durable (it has a nice quality feel to it) and the sound is amazing for a small speaker. It is easy to pair with my phone and I can be in excess of thirty feet before losing my connection. The sound fills a small room and it sounds great outdoors. It also fits nicely in a cup holder in both my truck and beach chair. Add to thisthe fact that it comes with a neoprene case (the Bose case is an additional $25.00) and this becomes an exceptional purchase. If you are considering a small blutooth speaker, you will not regret purchasing the JBL Charge.

Love it, loud & clear!!

By Bundy

from Nelsonville, OH, United States

Comments about JBL Charge 3 Portable Bluetooth Speaker:

My wife gave me a Charge for Christmas over a year ago. In the summer I didn't go outside without it! Being a wheelchair user, I rolled it onto my lap before going out. The Charge will play extremely loud, while maintaining it's clarity. I have also had it roll off my lap onto our cement patio many times. It has as 1 or 2 dings but usually is saved by the hard rubber rings on each end, it is solidly made & the rich sound is unharmed!! The Charge's bassy sound is unmatched by any other portable speaker I've heard.

So happy I bought this!

By kathyjo26

from Lewisberry, PA, United States

Comments about JBL Charge 3 Portable Bluetooth Speaker:

I recently purchased the JBL Charge 2 (in purple, my favorite color!), and I could not be happier with it! I received it very quickly, and this little wonder of a speaker is absolutely amazing! The sound quality is unrivaled, and it is so easy to use (even though I am somewhat technologically impaired, myself)! It holds its charge for quite a long time, and I like that you can plug your devices into it to charge them, also. All in all, it is very simple to transport and use, and has unbelievable sound quality. I could not be happier with this purchase! JBL gets 11 out of 10 stars. Thank you! : )

Worked well at first.  Everyone at work liked hearing my music!  It quit working after less than 6 months and I didn't keep the receipt to get warranty work.  150.00 down the drain!  Keep your receipt!

Dollar for Dollar by far far the best product on the market.

By Apollo

from New York City

Comments about JBL Charge 3 Portable Bluetooth Speaker:

This is the best balanced and by far the most value for your money. I have the big jam box, which costs $300 and can't charge your phone... This thing is smaller and sounds almost as loud too. The sound quality/clarity though on this is better than Bose, Jawbone, iHome. I have tried them all extensively.

small in size, big in sound!

By Dave77

from Chicago, IL, United States

Comments about JBL Charge 3 Portable Bluetooth Speaker:

I purchased this speaker after hearing a friends charge 1 & was impressed by the sound. The charge 2 does put out a bit more bass than it predecessor. The overall quality to price ratio is great! The new social mode & speaker phone was a great addition. The only con, is that this version does not come with the neoprene pouch, which is why I gave it 4 stars. I think that was a big mistake on their part & they do not sell one seperate at this time either.

That Bass O.O

By GreatMCGamer

from Finland

Comments about JBL Charge 3 Portable Bluetooth Speaker:

I saw this in a store pounding music and to be hones I was trying to find separate bass speaker from under the display table. The tremble is just as it should be. The bass is little 2 high but I would not take even a half star off cuz of that. I have tested the thing and it plays 9h at max volume I use it to play music and charge my phone everyday. Battery of the phone runs out in 4h of playing Minecraft and this speaker keeps the phone on so I can get home and charge them both.. Weird thing is... This speaker never charges my phone over 76%. Allso.. If you buy this.. Your phone charger can't charge this. I tryed and after 12h it was still under half. Charge with proper charger or a USB port form computer. The USB cable what came with this broke in 5 days.. But Idc I have the USB cables in stock.

caught off guard...

By Allan34

from Undisclosed

Comments about JBL Charge 3 Portable Bluetooth Speaker:

My partner in a Golf Tournament had the blue version, asked if I mind a little music during our round, of course not! Well wasn't I surprised with the big sound coming from something the size of a large energy drink. Unlike the tinny sound satellite radio plays through most car speakers, this little gal packs a decent wallop. All volume levels sound crisp AND there's bass, wow! Saw the Bose & other portable speakers at BestBuy a few months back. Bose way, way overpriced (as usual) and others not suited for outdoor use, especially riding next to a liquid refreshment in a golf cart. I couldn't purchase my own fast enough...

Crisp, Clear, & Bass

By UniqueAsian

from Tampa, FL

Comments about JBL Charge 3 Portable Bluetooth Speaker:

I've been in the market looking for a portable Bluetooth speaker. When I heard about the Charge from CES, I figured I'd wait until this unit was released. The sound is amazing and I listen to everything except country. No distortion when I crank up the music. The bass is very nice and clean. Pairing it was a breeze and very very easy to do. As compared to Bose and Jawbone jambox, I would recommend this unit over them. As far as value....it was only $149!!!

Best speaker I ever owned

By Colton123

from Katy, TX, United States

Comments about JBL Charge 3 Portable Bluetooth Speaker:

Let me start off and say this speaker is amazing. Anyone that I show it to is impressed. Don't go with the beats pill just because it it is beats. You won't be happy, just buy this and save time. I have had it for almost a year and is still going strong and use it about everyday. Battery life is great, the last week I went to eat with my friends and had to charge my phone then another week went by and had to charge my phone and play music for hours and charged it Sunday. The battery life for me is worth the upgrade from the flip and any other speaker in its class. The carrying case is also not bad. Bose has you buying the soundlink for $200 then a $20-$40 case so at least jbl thought well on that. Sound is well on it, very clear audio not as bass heavy as the Bose which is fine by me because the Bose focuses a lot on bass and not vocals. Over all great speaker and can't wait for the second gen to come out because I will buy it and it will be worth every penny compared to the others. Also, at $150 you can't really go wrong with most other speakers going for $200

Love JBL Charge

By DAFFYDC

from Cleveland, OH

Comments about JBL Charge 3 Portable Bluetooth Speaker:

So far so good. I was debating between this and the boss sound link mini. I went with JBL because of the longer battery life, included case and it was $50 cheaper. While the Charge may not have as much bass as the bose, it still sounds excellent and I've always been a big fan of JBL because of their quality. I also love how this device can CHARGE all of your portable devices. Don't get me wrong, the bass on this does sound pretty good. I've listened to music and watched some movies and everything sounded great. I couldn't believe how amazing movies sounded on this device. The way sound was produced was pretty impressive. I was able to hear all sorts of detail. Nice job JBL!! If you're searching for a bluetooth speaker, I'd recommend this.

Simply Amazing!

By Just1Jack

from Moncton, NB

Comments about JBL Charge 3 Portable Bluetooth Speaker:

I've tested many portable bluetooth speakers including the Bose, the Pill, monster clarity, Braven 600, Jawbone to name a few and this one is the best by far. Its very loud and has good base. The base on the Bose is a bit better but this one is way more portable and half the price. Buy It, you won't be disappointing!!!
