  • Disappointed
    Reviewed by Orejel - August 22, 2021

    I was looking for a good speaker to have a party outdoors. We did some research and we decided to go with the latest version, "Charge 5" due it's advertising of 20 hours battery life. I don't have any doubt that the speaker could last for that long, but definitely with a very, very moderate volume. We were outdoors and very excited with the new addition... And the speaker didn't even last for 5 hours with high volume. We plugged it in to a portable battery to keep using it but it was totally dead. It is a shame, because the design is really beautiful, but it's "feature of 20 hours battery life" it is a lie. We will return the item.

  • Best Purchase Ever!

    I have never written a review for anything before, but I’ve always said I would for this speaker so I’m finally getting around to it. I bought the JBL Charge 3 a long time ago when it first came out. I didn’t know what to expect, but I have been absolutely blown away. I love this speaker and I bring it to nearly everything I do. It’s been at the pool, on the beach, on a kayak, and so much more. The sound is incredible, and it blows my mind how long the battery lasts. My friends and family have gotten on board and gotten themselves one too. If this Charge 5 is anything like my Charge 3, I will no doubt be getting one if my 3 ever goes out on me.

    Its been a few weeks i bought this and to be quite honest I expected more. It’s definitely loud but I’ve found that its not as clear i want it to be in some songs. I understand the specifications aren’t exactly like that of a “professional setup” but for the price i was expecting more. The low end is okay but its not evident if you dont put it in a corner or something. I wish it was a more balanced sound instead of the highs being so loud in a lot of songs. Its either too high or too low which is slightly disappointing. All this being said it not a bad speaker by any means but for the price i dont feel like it’s justified
