JBL Charge 4 is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 68.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well balanced sound I bought the charge 4 along with a charge 3 on black Friday to see for myself which one sounded better. If the charge 3 sounded better, like some claim, I didn't want to pass up the deal for $89. I'm sending back the charge 3 and keeping the charge 4. Side by side the charge 4 has more bass and a cleaner more lifelike sound. I compared many songs and types of music, hands down the charge 4 wins. The charge three had almost no bass compared to the charge 4 and the charge 3 has too much sound in the mid high area of frequency range, not well balanced. I wanted the charge 3 to sound close to what the charge 4 did that way I would keep it, at such a great deal, and have two speakers to play together with the JBL connect plus.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good overall sound for such a small package Pleasantly surprised. I like big sound. It does not provide the big bass outdoors, but it fills the room adequately inside. I have the Boombox that fills the need for the outdoors. The sound quality of the Charge 4 is really clear with good mids and highs. It is actually a little too loud at night on the lowest volume setting when trying to go to sleep — NOT a problem at all because I just use the iPhone speakers. I have 2 old Xtremes. I was considering getting an Xtreme 2 to complete my connect + pairings, but I will get another Charge 4 instead (though I don’t really need it). Now the old Xtremes serve me little purpose - that absolute SUCK JBL.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Speaker!!! If you already own the jbl charge 3 I wouldn’t say it is worth upgrading because there mainly just small minor tweaks to the charge 4 coming from the charge 3, the charge 4 does have a little bit more clarity as well as a little bit more bass, it’s very similar in volume to the charge 3 but slightly more refined, it now has usb type c charging which is nice future wise because it could support even faster charging, one gripe I have is the flap covering the port is looser than on the charge 3 and there is only one rubber ring that seals it off compared to the charge 3 having 2 of them, so far it hasn’t been a problem though and even if water does get through jbl seals off the other sides of the ports so no damage should occur just don’t try and use the ports if they are wet until they dry, I do absolutely love this speaker and glad I got it, I just wish they would have added a tweeter since it is a mono driver handling everything, if there was a tweeter jbl would have been able to not only make it even louder but allow more excursion without the sound getting fluttery, but I guess they will do that in the charge 5? Thank you jbl for making an amazing product!!! Deffinetly recommend!!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great design, but has a few flaws... I am overall very disappointed, I had to buy and return two of these from Walmart until the third one I bought sounded a little better.. The problem is the right side passive radiator, at half volume and above it makes a rattling/thumping noise when the bass hits low. I own a Flip 3, Flip 4, and a few of my buddies have Charge 3's and none of the other speakers have this problem. I love Jbl in every way but this is downright disappointing. And not to mention it runs on one driver instead of two, on paper the specs look better but the charge 3 is cheaper and sounds a bit better.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Overall disappointed Quite a few of my friends have the charge 3. I worked in a automotive garage for a year where we used a charge 3 as music device that's really what made me fall in love with them. Audio quality was amazing. It had so much bass for how small it was it impressed everyone in the shop. So I held out thinking the charge 4 has to be better right? Wrong. I purchased 2 charge 4s to link together. The bluetooth connectivity is pathetic. They always break up. Crackle. the battery life is better. But compared to the charge 3 the sound isn't nearly as good. Way less bass. With the volume all the way up they both sound like they are struggling. The charge 3 sounds like it could keep getting louder and still sound good if it could keep going. Just overall disappointed in both of them. Save some money and buy the charge 3 if you can.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BOOMY! JBL speaker with great features. I am very impressed with the new JBL charge 4. The sound is clear and has more boomy base compared to the Charge 3, which I own also. The JBL charge 4 is a definite improvement with the louder base. Other improvements are that It does have a higher capacity battery (7500 mAh) than the charge 3 which is 6000 mAh and a type C charge for it, which to me is better and faster on charging. Also the JBL charge 4 is slightly bigger than the JBL charge 3. The speaker is waterproof (IPX7) and with the higher capacity battery makes an even better powerbank to charge your device while listening to music for a longer time . Just don't forget to download the JBL connect app to connect more than one JBL speaker and to keep up with any firmware updates. I have to honestly say the JBL Charge 4 is an improvement from the charge 3. When comparing the two with features and sound I choose the JBL charge 4.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loud and bass is great It's loud and bass is great you are definitely getting what you paid for. And that's why I'm giving it 5 stars. Its definitely not a JBL xtreme JBL soundbar or JBL boombox so dont go into this expecting the sound to be like that. However it has wowed me and I do believe I'll be getting a second pair so kudos to you JBL. Drawbacks are and maybe this could be used for when you make JBL charge 5 if that happens. The bass is great my question is will the bass top charge 4 when charge 5 comes out and will JBL charge 5 have 360 sound ,4 speakers two on the front two on the back maybe a bigger bass. However I really do love the charge 4, for one speaker it sure does get loud. Now question two JBL charge 4s can be hooked up and in stereo sound now let's say you hook up like 20 of these things together what will the bass sound like any comparison to the soundbars the. Just curious.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Sound I was looking into this product based on a friend's recommendation when he surprised me with it as a Christmas gift. What a fabulous sound and ease of setting up it is. It took me 5 minutes out of the box and I had it set-up and playing. The quick start instructions are short and simple...very easy to follow. The construction is sturdy and the packaging protects it from any rough treatment during shipping. I only wish it came with a carrying case but I found them in Amazon for $12. I hope it lasts for a long time.

Is it worth it to purchase this speaker if I already have a charge 3

Asked by: Gooney1102
If you wish to connect multiple speakers at the same time, then you may consider getting the charge 4 and updating the Charge 3 through the JBL Connect app.

What is the Bluetooth connection range of the JBL CHARGE 4? Regards...

Asked by: Jhesshui
The JBL Charge 4's Bluetooth range is up to 10m or about 32ft. This could be less if your connection is experiencing interferences/interruptions. This is how to prevent that: 1.) Always have clear line of sight between your Bluetooth device (speaker, headphones etc). and source device (Smartphone/tablet/PC etc). Be aware of obstacles in front of your devices. 2.)Try to shutdown products that has Bluetooth but not being used. They are often the reason for interference even though they are not being used. 3.)Do not stand too close to our Wi-Fi router since a Wi-Fi signal is stronger and in many cases will "overlap" the connection. 4.)Be aware of walls around you. Concrete and brick walls will often interrupt the signal, as it cannot pass through such thick walls. 5.)Bluetooth signals cannot travel through water, which includes the human body. Make sure with Wireless Headphones to keep your Source device and the receiver on the same side of your body. 6.)Open space such as parks, or tracks can cause issue for your devices, as open air is "bad" for any Bluetooth signal if it cannot reflect from objects around you.

Is it possible to pair the Charge 4 with more than one Bluetooth source device without having to go through the pairing dialogue each time? This would be a convenience when my wife's phone is not available but mine is.

Asked by: PIxelman
Actually a case will be unnecessary. I finally tried this myself to see if it would work. I paired both my Pixel and my wife's iPhone to the Charge 4. It does work provided one doesn't try to have both paired simultaneously. It is necessary to dive into the Bluetooth menu on the respective phone which isn't being used and manually disconnect it via the "disconnect" button. The Charge will remain on the "Available Devices" menu unless one manually selects "Forget This Device". Very simple.
