    JBL Charge 3 reviews

    Charge 3 Portable Bluetooth Stereo Speaker (Black) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 778.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Sound Quality, Annoying Noise I love the Charge 3 because it .. + has a good (well balanced) sound quality + has a long runtime + supports convenient charging via micro-usb + supports stereo pairing (two speaker can be connect as a stereo system) The only thing i really dislike about this speaker is the loud noise when .. - its turned on/off (annoying guitar noise) - its connected via bluetooth (ping-ping noise) - a stereo pairing is established (ping-ping noise) Because of this loud and IMHO unnecessary noises its nearly impossible to use this speaker in a quiet environment. Therefore i can give only 3 stars out of 5. But i would change my rating to 5 stars if this noises could be disabled.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Speaker! This is my first bluetooth speaker. It was extremely easy to pair with my phone and laptop PC. The sound quality is amazing for this little speaker. I live in a 1600 sqft condo and it plenty loud to fill my entire unit. Loud enough to throw a party and entertain. The battery life is phenomenal. I have been playing it for about 3 hrs everyday for the last 7 days and the battery meter has only decreased by 1 bar out of 5! It's the energizer bunny. I like to use this speak while watching Netflix on my PC, and while listening to Pandora on my cellphone.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seriously, this speaker is top tier One of the best experiences I have had with a product. This speaker has lasted for 6 months now, works the same as right out of the box. Sound quality- Amazing bass for a speaker of this size, all around good sound Durability- Has been immersed in water, withstood extreme cold, fallen on concrete. There is no visible damage, works good as new Design- Looks good, small, the speaker drivers on the ends look absolutely amazing Bluetooth- Connects quickly and easily, the range is good Would highly recommend this speaker to friends and family, I'm writing this review because I want to support JBL in their future efforts. If this speaker is any indication of what is to come then I am very excited.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well... Purchased 27 Jan 2016 and while I love the sound, I've had to do a factory reset twice, (averaging so far about once a month). Having only owned a cell phone since right before that, I don't know if it's normal to have to periodically reset BT connections or not, didn't stop me from buying a second one though. I'm anxious to pair them and see how things go, (currently visiting relatives out of state and the second one is waiting for me at home). Hoping for a great summer around the pool!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Buy I bought this about a month ago after my previous speaker had fallen apart. I had JBL headphones and they were great so i thought why not try their portable speakers. I have yet to find anything to complain about. The sound quality is great, high volume for when you really want to blast your music, bluetooth connection is fantastic(No problems connecting over multiple devices like laptop and different kinds of smart phones), and it seems to be made from good durable materials. All i would say is maybe make it able to communicate to another JBL charge 3 so that you can have surround sound. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Portable 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from hands down the best! I bought this two and a half years ago and its still going strong!!! great build!! feels solid. produces top quality sound at high volumes!! i tour the world and have abused this little beast in every-way. it has been a life line for me multiple times... being able to charge my smart phone that doesn't have a replaceable battery I tell everyone about this speaker and some times JBL has refurbished ones for the low! waterproof and charges your phone!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Charge 3 I finally decided to invest in a quality portable speaker. The Charge 3 is great everywhere. At home I connect it to my TV when I want to watch movies and get that extra bass and movie feel. The battery life is amazing, before making the purchase my friend let me borrow his for a few mins and what sold me was the bass and sound quality. I've only had it for a week and I'm happy I purchased it, I hope the feeling is the same in December.
