JBL Charge 3 Review
JBL Charge 3, with its waterproof design and 20 hours of battery life, is perfect for wireless music playback in large rooms and outdoors. With the typical JBL design, this speaker produces a lot of sound and the bass is one of its best features. The performance is fantastic and the audio quality is superb. It is on the heavier side but can still be easily carried along.
You will often hear people saying that you should be willing to sacrifice on the audio quality if you are planning to buy a portable and wireless speaker. Thankfully, JBL Charge 3 ensures that you don’t need to. This speaker produces some enormous amount of sound but there is no distortion at all. The bass is among the best you will have experienced in portable speakers and all you need is a plane surface for the best bass response. Charge 3 is a large speaker but can be carried along with you for use outdoors. The waterproofing is one of the highlights of the many features that it has. You can dunk it inside a pool for about 30 minutes and it will survive. In addition, it has 20 hours of battery life, which is impressive.
What is the sound quality?
The size to sound ratio of JBL Charge 3 is fantastic. It is a large speaker and the sound that it produces can get pretty loud. Even if you place the speaker in a large room it will have no problem filling the entire room with its loud sound. One of the best points about this speaker is that it produces no distortion even when you hike up the volume to the maximum. In terms of the sound quality, this speaker produces among the deepest bass in portable and wireless speakers. Very high frequency playback quality is one of the downsides of this speaker and it could be because of the waterproof construction.
what is its performance?
The performance of JBL Charge 3 is among the best in portable and wireless speakers. It can connect with different music sources wirelessly and the music output through the speaker doesn’t show any lag. The amount of sound it produces is definitely consistent with the sound of this speaker and at maximum volume, it can create some serious sound effects. If you are a lover of bass then you will fall in love with this speaker – it has among the best and the deepest bass in speakers in this category.
Conclusion: Should I buy it?
JBL Charge 3 has improved a lot over JBL Charge 2 in almost every department. The highs in Charge 2 may be better but that is a small sacrifice you will be making with Charge 3 and get waterproofing in return – the choice is yours. At USD150, this speaker is a great addition to your collection of devices and its distortion-free audio with some of the best bass possible makes every cent you spend on it worth it.
