New look
JBL just focused on the looks of the new charge 5 but when it comes to battery charge the charge5 doesn’t beat the charge4 at all full charge only lasts 3 hours. Will be returning for s full refund and staying with my charge4. ( it doe’s sound a bit louder but still wouldn’t upgrade not worth it. To expensive! it don’t connect with other jbl speakers with the app witch really sucked.

Amazing sound
We purchased the Charge 5 (a pair) and the silicon covers (grey speakers with the red covers) not only do they look awesome the sound is even better than expected. We have literally listened to these every night. Outdoors by the fire and inside the house. These speakers hold a long battery life, so we don't have to charge them as much as other bluetooth speakers. Definitely a great investment. All the family and friends wanted to know where we got these. Hear is our setup (sorry can't load pictures)

Excellent Sound
Liked it so much I bought a second to use in the party/stereo mode in my 40 x 40 workshop. Great tonal quality with the addition of the tweeter for classic rock and sixties/seventies music. Would highly recommend the JBL Portable app for firmware updates and entering the party or stereo mode.

Midsize King
I’ve owned many JBL speakers and have been extremely satisfied by all but like all technology they are improved by the next generation. The last JBL charge I owned was the charge 3 which I had since launch until selling it recently it was still just as amazing as the day I bought it, but after hearing my new charge 5 I realized just how much of an improvement it was. The added tweeter was the first thing I noticed it makes the speaker sound so much more clear and loud compared to the previous model while retaining the awesome bass response. I considered trying a different brand this time but after a lot of research I decided that JBL is still the brand for me nobody else gives me everything I want in a speaker but they always deliver, in my opinion nobody has the sound quality, build quality and everything else I look for at a comparable price. I also owned the original JBL Xtreme and I have to say the charge 5 is very very close in sound and performance which is amazing at the size. Overall I am extremely happy with this speaker and I’m looking forward to using it for years to come.

I love my JBL!
First of all, major design points! This speaker is aesthetically pleasing, which is very important to me. Sound wise, you can’t beat the quality for it’s size. Not only is it easily portable, but it’s range of sound is pretty impressive for how compact it is. Also, the battery lasts forever!!! It’s loud enough to hear, while I’m in the shower and the fact that it’s waterproof, allows me to feel confident that it won’t be damaged by all the steam in my bathroom. Seriously, the construction on this thing is great! It’s expensive for sure, but if you can afford it, I’d say go for it! I’m glad I did.

It's a great portable speaker
I bought this to take on a houseboating trip in case the boat's sound system sucked. I was right to do so. We could never get the boat's speakers going and this little baby made all the difference. It could play loud and clear. We really used it a ton. Small enough to pack in the suitcase and still had a big sound. I was also not worried about using it on the beach with all the sand. It really stood up.
