JBL Charge 3 is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 590.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great speaker, true sound This is an awesome speaker for the price, totally worth it. Some speakers have poor equalizers, where the bass or treble is too heavy or too light, but all music played on this bad boy sounds awesome and not distorted. It's super resilient after doing some testing on the waterproofness, and the added feature of charging your devices on it is awesome. Battery life is also really good! One complaint would be that it seems like it takes quite a while to charge back up once it dies completely. I feel like it stays on one bar forever while waiting for it to charge, even when not in use. Other than that, my new favorite portable speaker.

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 Just Amazing! Proud owner of many JBL products ranging from car speakers to headphones and JBL really outdid themselves another time. Sounds so amazing, amazing features. The fact that it’s submersible in water and sounds great is quite the feat! Great battery life... you really couldn’t ask for more. This is a steal as opposed to other sellers matching a product of this quality in more of the $250 range. Do yourself a favor and don’t wait to pull the trigger. (PS, I’m not affiliated with JBL at all... just love their products) Keep it up JBL!

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 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.

My jbl charge 3 is about 3 weeks old. I use it almost daily at work. About a week ago it seemed like it stopped holding a charge. Now after charging all night it will only play about an hour and maximum volume. Is there a fix for this?

How to factory reset a JBL Charge 3 - My JBL Charge 3 won't charge. No matter how long it is plugged into the charger only the first of the 5 white charging/battery lights blinks. When I turn it on it makes a garbled sound then shuts off.

Asked by: Delguy
Power ON the device, then press and hold the "Volume+" and the "Play/Pause" buttons at the same time. When the device switches off after a few seconds, sounding the OFF prompt, it has been reset.

Once I update the firmware on my charge 3 to have the Connect +, I will be able to pair more than 2 speakers, correct? I'm looking to purchase another two of the Charge 3, just want to make sure they will all be able to pair.

Asked by: JoeH
Currently own 3 of these myself and my oldest boy has one. All 4 pair and play after the upgrade.

Charge 3 speakers seem to have intermittent connection problems in pairing to each other. No bluetooth problem connecting to ipad. Speakers connect off and on or just one speaker will work.Can't trust them to work properly for any length of time.

can this speaker be used with vinyl turntable?

Asked by: Megan1
Unfortunately it's not designed to be used with vinyl turntables as the JBL Charge 3 is a bluetooth speaker.

Can 3 charge 3 speakers be linked to play together?

Asked by: Unknown 1
You can link 3 Charge 3's together IF you have updated the firmware of all the Charge 3 to the Connect + feature. From the box it would only have the Connect feature which can only connect and link 2 speakers with the same Connect feature. You can update the firmware of the Charge 3 to the Connect + by using the JBL Connect app. Please do take note that you cannot undo the update for the Charge 3 once it has been finished updating.
