Bottom Line

The JBL charge 3 is a very portable Bluetooth speaker that reaches awesome volumes, but it may need its low and high frequencies boosted to match the clean midrange details.

The JBL Charge 3 portable Bluetooth speaker has received positive reviews for its good overall audio, with users noting that it has nice midrange detail. Users liked its battery life, its great size for the speakers overall loudness and its durable, waterproof design. Some pointed out that the design is also pleasing on the eye. However, some found that although it does have nice midrange detail, those same frequencies can sound overemphasized at times, needing the lows and treble frequencies slightly boosted with an EQ app from the music player in use. Some were also unhappy with the fact that it did not have a carrying case. The JBL Charge 3 reaches a solid volume, easily filling backyards, but it may requiring some bass and treble boosting to match up with the reportedly boosted midrange frequencies.
