Ive got this speaker 3 days ago and so far its preforming very nice. I like the sound, its very loud too. I got the grey option and its in my opinion alright its just far from the pictures that JBL presents. It has a darker shade from what i though. But still have no complains about the color. Only thing sucks is that they didn't give the JBL connect + to us. Battery life is great!

Better sound and features then the Charge but very disappointing not to have an option for a case. The Charge had a nice form fitting case. The Charge 2 would be perfect if it included or there was an option to purchase a case that also fit the charger.

Great Unit for a Great Price!

By JAC16

from Northern California-Bay Area

Comments about JBL Charge 3 Portable Bluetooth Speaker:

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!!!

Comments about JBL Charge 3 Portable Bluetooth Speaker:

This is exactly what I wanted. Great value for a great quality speaker! The bottom piece has rubber on it to keep it from sliding on surface. I wish that piece was a little bigger. It seems top heavey

Best Portable Speaker

By CarterE

from Raleigh, NC, United States

Comments about JBL Charge 3 Portable Bluetooth Speaker:

I accidentally left mine in a covered hot tub overnight, found it the next morning and it was working perfectly. I take it with me on a small 13ft boat with a 40hp 2 stroke engine (loud), the speaker easily breaks through the noise and has great sound even at max volume, very durable and did I mention water PROOF! Also, the texture is misleading, I take this to the beach and NO sand gets into the mesh looking outside - always looks brand new.

Comments about JBL Charge 3 Portable Bluetooth Speaker:

This little speaker is so convenient that I found myself bringing it with me where ever I go. I've had it for the summer now and I literally pack it with me on all my trips. Sound is good, ease of use is excellent, and the battery stays charged a long time. Very happy with this speaker and it's a great product for the money too.

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.

Comments about JBL Charge 3 Portable Bluetooth Speaker:

I ordered my Charge 3 some time late Saturday night into Sunday morning and it arrived Tuesday evening! I love the presentation of the packaging so beautiful and professional. The speaker it self is amazing quality and the bass is crystal clear the best sound I've ever heard in the portable speaker.

So much great sound in a little package.

By spinningwood

from Space Coast

Verified Buyer

Comments about JBL Charge 3 Portable Bluetooth Speaker:

I bought this without seeing one or listening to one. JBL's satisfaction guarantee took all the risk out it. After listening to this I can see why they can offer a satisfaction guarantee. WOW! It's even better than I ever dreamed. Wish I could have had one of these 100 years ago when I was in college (I guess I would have needed a smartphone and the internet and stuff, but you get the point. Instant party in a tiny little package.

Tossed it in my pool to check the water resistance. No problem. This thing is built solid. Just don't poke anything into the resonators on the ends.

Sound is somewhat directional because of the design. In a room with walls and the Charge 3 placed against a wall, it wasn't noticeable to me. In the wide open spaces (like my outdoors patio) it's less of an issue than you might think. If you are by yourself, just aim it at you for full sound. If you are with a wild party crowd, nobody will notice.

Great battery life so far.

If you are wondering whether to get one of these, just do it. You won't regret it.

Connected to a Samsung Galaxy S8+, Moto G4 and Moto G1 with no problem at all.
