Superb Quality, Best Outdoor Speaker!
I have a plethora of bluetooth speakers and i find this one the absolute best for the price. Sound is superb, Bass BANGS, positioning is everything, waterproof!! But this speaker really shines outdoors. I've been through an ungodly amount of speakers trying to find the perfect one and i have finally found it! Something about playing this speaker outside just fills the air with this massive, awesome, well balanced sound. Also seems to produce more bass while outside. Again, positioning is everything.

The only small very minor 2 complaints are the high's arnt very high and if you crank the volume and hold it close to your head you can hear the bass slightly causing this reverb type noise coming from the front speakers. But really, whos gonna hold this thing to their head haha, nobody.. well unless you want to go deaf.. more than 3 feet away you cant even notice it. This doesnt stop me from saying this is the best all-around speaker!

The bluetooth range is great also i can go anywhere in my 2500 sq ft home and doesnt even cut out.

Protip - hold the plus button and press play/pause to skip songs!

Good Sound Quality, Annoying Noise
I love the Charge 3 because it ..
+ has a good (well balanced sound quality
+ has a long runtime
+ supports convenient charging via micro-usb
+ supports stereo pairing (two speaker can be connect as a stereo system)

The only thing i really dislike about this speaker is the loud noise when ..
- its turned on/off (annoying guitar noise)
- its connected via bluetooth (ping-ping noise)
- a stereo pairing is established (ping-ping noise)

Because of this loud and IMHO unnecessary noises its nearly impossible to use this speaker in a quiet environment. Therefore i can give only 3 stars out of 5. But i would change my rating to 5 stars if this noises could be disabled.

Nice Speaker!
Ive got this speaker 3 days ago and so far its preforming very nice. I like the sound, its very loud too. I got the grey option and its in my opinion alright its just far from the pictures that JBL presents. It has a darker shade from what i though. But still have no complains about the color. Only thing sucks is that they didn't give the JBL connect + to us. Battery life is great!

Best Portable Speaker
I accidentally left mine in a covered hot tub overnight, found it the next morning and it was working perfectly. I take it with me on a small 13ft boat with a 40hp 2 stroke engine (loud, the speaker easily breaks through the noise and has great sound even at max volume, very durable and did I mention water PROOF!

Also, the texture is misleading, I take this to the beach and NO sand gets into the mesh looking outside - always looks brand new.

Can you pair two of these JBL Charge 3s, one for left and one for the right channel separated by 20 ft or more for extremely wide stereo sound?
Dave R on Feb 8, 2018
  Absolutely! You should have no issue. However, due to the output power of the speaker, it may struggle to fill very large spaces with great stereo sound.
How many small speakers it has?
A shopper on Sep 3, 2017
  The manufacturer publishes that there are 2 x 50mm transducers in the unit.
