    Another rendition of a killer Bluetooth speaker

    This is a great speaker with great pairing capabilities. The ability to pair to multiple bluetooth devices with one cell phone period app is a little buggy still. But I'm sure it will get better with time.

    A great speaker in a small package. Easy to use right out of the box. The bass is heavy out of the box so get the app right away.

    I really like the design and colors of the JBL. The bass is better than the UE Boom2. But the JBL stills needs a better app and better overall sound.

    Great speakers that get very loud and have really good bass. I would recommend getting 2 to sync together in stereo. Only gripe is that the jbl app ap seems to always have an issue finding the speakers thru bluetooth on my phone even though my phone clearly has them connected thru bluetooth which make syncing 2 of these speakers a pain sometimes.

    Great overall sound. Portability is nice. This product does not run through battery life. App could use some work though - not very useful for anything.

    Compared to the UE Boom 2 the JBL has more fuller sounding bass. Yet overall sound is better with the UE Boom 2. The JBL app is really not that good compared to the UE app. I do like the JBL design and coloring better.

    This speaker, for the most part, is awesome. I love the waterproofing, the sound is great and full bodied, and it's sort quick to connect via Bluetooth. I find I never use the search button, but I'm not a big voice search user, so that might influence that. I do wish there was a previous track option, and using a double click on the play/pause button to go to the next track is awkward for such a large device. I also wish the app included some more options, such as EQ adjustment, device priority and battery percentage.

    Good Quality for the Size and Price Range

    The JBL Charge 3 is a handy Bluetooth unit that will be easy to take on a trip or hike and seems to have a great ability to maintain a charge. It has a USB port to allow charging of other devices and an auxiliary input as well. The unit's advertised to be waterproof, but I haven't tested that capability. The only drawback to the device for me seems to be a reduction (at times) in high and mid-range sound output while listening to some musical selections. I downloaded the JBL apps associated with the device, but they have no EQ tools. Apps are available for this type of thing, but it's inconvenient that the JBL apps do not provide this capability.

    The little fella is sweet. I've only had for about a month and it's the first Bluetooth speaker I've ever owned. That being said it's a nice piece of equipment as far as my experience goes. I see people complain about sound quality and my answer to that's, use an equalizer with the app that's playing music or get an equalizer app. This little cylinder gets unexpectedly loud as well. I bought this model specifically because of a few main criteria that I was looking for. 1-Waterproof, although nothing is truly "waterproof" I don't have to worry about having it near water or about moisture getting inside the hardware. 2-Battery Life, it's advertised as a 20hr battery life with continuous play at medium volume. Personally I go a week without having to charge it and I imagine others will vary depending on use. All in all very respectable and you can charge other devices via usb port so another plus for that. 3-Price- This speaker is originally $159.99 which is a bit steep I think. BestBuy had online sale that I was able to apply in store plus I had a 10% off coupon which brought it down to $116ish plus tax. Much better :) The JBL Charge 3 has big sound, good battery life that doubles as an external battery, waterproofing gives me less to worry about and more options. Last but not least, for a good price I would by again or recommend to others.
