    The general sound is okay but it doesn't have treble and bass controls and is quite bassy with not enough top end.

    the speakers are great alone but do not pair well. the range is weak, the break up, you also can't control their volume individually. I returned them and bought UE's.

    Overall this is a great speaker. Well built and is well worth the money. You will not regret your purchase, I have had the Charge 3 since August. I will do my best to list what I found to be the pros and cons of this portable bluetooth speaker. Hopefully this is helpfully. Pros: -Battery Life - Long -WaterProof - You can get this thing wet. -Charging Station - It will charge your cell phone -Loud -Sound Quality Cons: -Wish there was a skip button on the speaker - You can only pause, play, & control volume from the device.

    This is a great speaker in terms of sound quality, loudness, battery life, and look. I've purchased two to listen in the stereo mode. That is the first portable speaker of such a small size that I can actually enjoy when listening to the music (tried different brands & models - all sound tinny and/or distort heavily). Sound quality wise, I would prefer JBL Extreme (they have separate tweeters, and high frequencies sound much crisper & cleaner), but Charge 3 is still acceptable for music listening given the small size. Occasionally, the stereo connection is unstable, but that problem isn't too bad, so it'sn't a deal-breaker. The only BIG CONS / AREA FOR IMPROVEMENT that I've found so far is that the speakers auto-shutdown after several minutes when aren't in use, after which they wouldn't wake up when the Bluetooth signal appears again, and you can't control this feature - you need to physically press the Power button again to turn them on and reconnect. I wish they would wake up via Bluetooth or, at least, there was a way to turn the autoshut down feature ON/OFF from the app or to set the auto shutdown timer. Also, an equalizer in the app would add much value to the product. Overall, excellent product. I hope they will last.
