CHARGE5 Portable Waterproof Speaker with Powerbank
I am very happy with this speaker. It gives out plenty of sound and is loud enough for the outdoors. It fell off my car the second day I had it and did sustain some damage but only cosmetic. Still sounds great.
I love it. Great upgrade from the Charge 4, the new tweeter sounds great with the improved bass. The battery life is fantastic. If you’re having issues with it, make sure you update the software by downloading the JBL app, and updating it on the speaker. I got the red, nice color choice (for me), the metal ‘!’ Marks on the sides are a nice touch.
After a long search for a quality speaker, this is the best overall portable speaker. Although the style is a little less appealing but the sound is great for a 30W speaker. I can listen to any genre as the sound stage has punchy bass, decent mids, and clear highs that will not create a muddy tone (compared to the sound stage of the Marshall Bluetooth speakers). Compared to the charge 4, you get a separate tweeter, Bluetooth v5.1 (compared to v4.0), and now a part of JBL Partyboost to connect with other speakers. The IPX rating has decreased since the charge 4 from IPX7 to IPX67. To note, there is no charger in the box, just the cable and some booklets are included. In the end, this a great speaker for all occasions.
So I have a Flip 5 and really like it but its kind of low in the bass department. I decided to buy an Xtreme 3, when it arrived, I felt that the bass was lacking in it. I just couldn’t justify spending $349.00 so I returned it. Then I bought a 2nd Flip 5 and fell in love with playing stereo with two of them (and two sounds much, much better than one) BUT I had been waiting for the Charge 5 to come out and when I ordered the Flip 5, it had not came out…the next day the Charge 5 came out. I purchased two Charge 5’s so I could have stereo and let me tell you, if your thinking about buying an Xtreme 3, you would be better off spending $10.00 more and buying two Charge 5’s. The bass sounds better, the two speakers sound louder, two speakers sound clearer and you get Stereo OR PartyBoost (mono), either one you choose sounds better than one Xtreme 3.
Just received mine this week upgrading from the Charge 4. First, update the firmware via the JBL app. Second, this is exponentially louder than the Charge 3 & 4. The bass is great but what really caught my ear is the treble is quite a bit more pronounced or “brighter” than the previous iterations. Comparatively, the Charge 4 actually sounds flat when testing the two. I think it’s still a nice upgrade though.
MAKE SURE YOU UPDATE THE OS FROM THE JBL APP!!! A+

So many people are saying that the bass isn’t good on the Charge 5 but you must update the software from the JBL portable app and it fixes this problem! This thing is awesome and it’s wayyy better than the beats pill and charge 4 you won’t be disappointed!
It’s a great all around speaker and time will tell how it holds up. I have an UE Boom for a couple of years. It was time to replace it as the battery was only lasting 1 hour at full volume. Mainly use my speaker for outdoor, beach park etc so it needed to be water proof and durable. So I bought an UE Megaboom. Boy I was so disappointed. It basically had the same sound as my smaller boom just a little louder. I then was looking at several speakers including Sony xb33, xb43, JBL Xtreme 2 and 3, Charge 4 and 5. The Xtreme and XB43 had the best sound with the JBL winning but could not see myself spending $250 and up for a outdoor speaker. Also battery life on the Extreme only had 15 hours. Sony 24 but didn’t sounds as good. After lots of research I bought the Charge 5. The charge 4 currently is a good deal at the moment but the missing extra tweeter speaker on the 5 made a big difference and nice upgrade to go with the 5. The Charge 5 is basically an Xtreme mini. Has well depth in sound highs mids and lows but at a lower volume level but not by much. $180 vs $350 is not a great value to go with the Xtreme as the sound quality is very similar. Also like the fact that the Charge 5 has a 20 hour battery life. I still like my original UE Boom but they need to step it up with the next UE Megaboom 4.
very loud Distortion, clean clear sound for in or out doors, havr taking it to the park and beach the logo looks amazing and durable, so far so good i have had the charge 3 for afew years now and is still going strong. jbl knows what is doing.
