Waterproof Portable Bluetooth Speaker (Black)
Top customer reviews
I would have loved to see a removable shoulder strap similar to the one on the JBL Xtreme.
I see this speaker as a great compliment to the Xtreme. The Xtreme is much larger and heavier. It has tremendous bass and loudness, but lacks easy portability. This speaker gives a lot of what the Xtreme doesn't. When you link the two and play them at the same time, the sound is incredible.
I've also compared it to a Bose Soundlink and a Sony SRS X55. It blows them both away! I highly recommend the Charge 3. For the price, it's the best speaker on the market!
First of all, this is a MAJOR step up from the JBL Charge 2. Everything from sound quality to battery life is vastly improved. If you feel its time to upgrade, just go for it.
I watched a ton of youtube comparison videos for this and other speakers in the same price range. If you're considering any iteration of the UE Boom, don't bother. The Charge 3 seemed to beat the UE in every category. The only advantage that the UE has is that it has 360 sound, while the JBL only pumps sound through the front of the speaker. Don't let that fool you, though. The JBL is MUCH louder at max volume.
I will say though that you might need to tweak your EQ settings for your ipod/spotify/whatever in order to compensate for the massive bass boost this thing has. The waterproof mesh also seems to swallow the vocals and treble slightly, but it's really an easy fix. When adjusting your EQ, I find the best options are "treble booster" and "Small Speaker." "Treble booster" does a nice job of balancing out the bass and treble, but I find "small speaker" does a better job utilizing the speaker's bass while still delivering nice highs. I swear i turned the volume up only halfway and the room was just submerged in bass, but without drowning out the song at all. So if you want a more balanced and natural sound, select treble booster, but if you want to use the speaker at its full potential, i'd go with "Small Speaker."
Hope this was helpful.
Normally, I'd start out with the sound, but this waterproofing design just blows me away. Perfect for the great outdoors. That being said, yes - this is an amazing speaker that puts out sound that will make you look around and wonder where it's coming from. Absolutely amazing design, and if given the option again, I'd buy it in a second. Hell, might even get another one because they can be linked together.
Bottom line is that you can do absolutely no wrong by purchasing this. JBL really knocked it out of the park with this one.
