JBL Charge 3 Waterproof Portable Bluetooth Speaker
  • I'm being picky but overall very happy and the waterproof rating is nice comfort for using it wherever.
  • It is supposed to be waterproof so it is excellent for using outside in the garden for parties etc. Very easy to set up.
  • I like the bass response and ease of use, huge battery life and water resistance.
  • I love that this is waterproof - pouring water in the ends with music with a heavy bass playing is a great party trick!
  • For it's size, the sound quality and bass is quite impressive. Also plus point for being waterproof.

What customers say about "Interfaces"
 
JBL Charge 3 Waterproof Portable Bluetooth Speaker
  • The usb allows you to utilise the speaker as a 'fast charging' power bank, which provided my Moto G4 with 3 charges before it was drained completely.
  • Versatile in that it's Bluetooth , can be linked to other speakers, has aux plug for non Bluetooth players and you can use it to charge Other stuff with USB cable.
  • The sound quality is excellent also is ease of use. Connect your device by Bluetooth or hard wire by a 3.5mm audio cable and off you go.
  • The only downside to me is the fact that it uses a micro usb cable, I mean there are still many products that use this but as time goes by I feel that we are heading more towards usb c.
  • Would prefer a better battery life and it should use USB-C to charge now as I would be able to charge it from my phone cable.
