JBL Charge 3 is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 221.
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 I love this speaker! I bought this a few days ago at target and I was really impressed with it once it got it, this speaker simply sounds amazing! I had the charge 2+ and decided to upgrade to the charge 3, there is a pretty good difference between the two, not in a bad way.... But comparing the two, the charge 3 goes almost two times louder than the charge 2+ as for the bass the charge 2+ has a little more bass but the charge 3 has more deeper bass and also is more like a hifi speaker and has more of a balanced sound than the charge 2+, the battery life last much longer, I just simply love this speaker, there's nothing better you can get for the price

Rated 5 out of 5 by from seems like an endless battery I have played it for hours. Neither my I phone or Charge 3 have even came close to running out of power. Sound wise I have compared it to two other name brand well known it comes out on top. Not considering price but sound is superior. The distance the sound carriers not just sound but quality lows and highs are very present while out doors. There are more expensive speakers then this and not as good. I feel I have a critical ear since I grew up in a very musical family and I know what sounds good. Folks you can't go wrong with this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best with an equalizer app Get an equalizer app to adjust sound (unfortunately JBL doesn't provide one). The waterproof fabric protecting this baby muffles the high frequencies. Tweaking sound via such an app greatly enhances the sound. If you're streaming music from a service such as Spotify (& who isn't), make sure the app works with such services.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Charge 3 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW!!! Just wow!!! I purchased this speaker when i lost my original Charge device. This speaker lives up to the precedence set by the original. The Charge 3 is an all around impressive speaker. From the heart pounding bass to the sharp and clear highs this is exactly what I want from a long term speaker. Although its size is not as portable as i would like due to the battery that i have not been able to kill, trust me I've tried. The water proofing on this is no joke either. the first day I got it i tried it out by completely submerging it in my hot tub only to pull it out and have it play with the sound quality expected from a JBL device.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good all arounder I took a long in the shop testing a variety of speakers in this category and this one won hands down. Definitely helps to use an equaliser on what is already a good speaker. If you are using Spotify they have an inbuilt equaliser built in the app so no need to download a seperate app. Only small issue is it would be nice you could turn it off and on from the phone

Is there a way to disable the sounds that the Charge 3 makes when it is powered on or powered off? They are much louder than they need to be and fairly obnoxious as well.

Asked by: soccerdad
Unfortunately, there is no way to turn the system tone off on the CHARGE 3. All our portable speakers have the audible tone when switching from one state to another and cannot be switched off.

Can I Connect a JBL Xtreme and a JBL Charge 3?  With "Connect", how does sound quality of "party" compare to "stereo"?

Asked by: NeedMyTunes
The CHARGE 3 and XTREME can be connected via the connect feature. However they cannot be set to stereo mode because you would need two(2) of the same model of speakers to be able to select stereo mode. Party mode plays music through both speakers at the same time without any distinction of which speaker is the left or the right speaker, while stereo mode plays music through the speakers using the "stereo left and right" logic, which means that one speaker plays the left channel while the other plays the right channel.

How to compare jbl speaker . One which I wanted to buy is of 90 dollars. An now I like this one which is 4 149 .99 dollar.

Asked by: VINAYAK
The comparison between the 2 speakers on this site is currently not supported. I assume you're trying to compare the CHARGE 2 from the CHARGE 3. The CHARGE 2 has an overall power output rating of 15W while the CHARGE 3 has an overall power output rating of 20W. The CHARGE 3 is also slightly larger than the CHARGE 2. The CHARGE 3 is waterproof while the CHARGE 2 is not and the most distinctive difference would be the Connect feature that the CHARGE 2 does not have but the CHARGE 3 has. Other than that, both have same specifications.
