JBL Charge 3 is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 813.
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 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 Great gift-great sound My daughter chose the JBL Charge 3 as her birthday gift (she's 23)--and from what she says it has big sound, plus it really is waterproof. A really ingenious item! I bought it directly from the JBL website to avoid possible foreign-made knock-offs on other discount websites. However, I did not buy the genuine JBL carrying case because after reading the reviews I realized it did not have space for the cords. So instead I bought a carrying case (from a different website) that did have enough space for the cords. JBL could probably boost sales by making their carrying case in a roomier size. Fantastic portable speaker, though!

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.]

In my charge 3, there was a cable touching the left passive radiator, and that made noise. I removed the passive radiator and moved the cable, then I reassembled everything back. My question is: is my speaker still waterproof?

Is there any way to turn off the ON, OFF and Connected jingles, or at least tone them down like 80%? They are massively loud and completely useless. The lights on the device provide the same information, but without intrusive noise. The app should do it!

Asked by: Ishouldchoosethesounds
If you press and hold the Bluetooth button and the volume up button at the same time I think it resets it aka turns it off without a sound. *press and hold both the Bluetooth and volume down button for less bass.

Hi, Does the Charge 3 pairs through JBL CONNECT to the sound bar BAR 3.1? Thanks

Asked by: MChu
No. The JBL Bar 3.1 does not have the Connect feature. The Devices that have the Connect feature will only be our portable devices.

The power indicators of my JBL Charge 3 does not blink when it is plugged in. When I press the on button there is no turning on sound and the button light stays white. It cannot pair with another device also. Battery was on red when it was plugged in.

Does it harm the unit if the charger is left plugged into the wall outlet or computer charging port (i.e.: can it be left plugged in constantly)? What is the recommendation?

Asked by: BigAl
Hi! No, there is no harm in leaving your JBL Charge 3 connected to electricity at all times. Our products have a PCM (Protection Circuit Module) and charge management IC built-in, that managed and detects that charging. The following four items are managed by charge IC instead of PCM. - It will monitor and control the charging current. - Once fully charged it will Cut-off the current to protect the battery. - To start charging again, unplug the device from power and back again(same procedure above will happen if fully charged). - While plugged in, if the battery charge drops below a certain point, the unit will automatically charge the battery again and then stop when it is fully charged again.
