Im not the system freak but I heard alot of different ones in my life time.I was able to identify what they were but when I heard JBL in was different and clear.I purchased them for myself in about 2008 and here it is 2017 and ppl still remember my system and express thats one of the best systems they ever herd.For ppl to remember a system,thats special.I know JBL is top of the line with Bass,Equalizer setting and very clear.Thats why I would recommend to anybody being first choice..Its easy to use and you get What you pay for never nothing less always more..

Great sound AND ease of use
This is my second and purchased as a gift for someone who keeps nicking mine and returning it when it is discharged!
She steals it because it sounds soo good - even with her awful music (it's a generation thing - I know).
The sound is really good and belies it's petite dimensions - it even sounds quite good in a tiled bathroom, never "boomy" but well balanced.
It even has enough quality of sound to tell the difference between well engineered, recorded and uncompressed files (Alt-J, Radiohead) and those not so (sorry Tokio Myers, I don't know the source but "Angel" sounded hollow)
We quickly tried them in stereo but it didn't work so well, I didn't give it much time but it wasn't as instant as the other operations have been on the JBL.

Great bt speaker for 1st purchase!
I have owned/heard several compact bt speakers over the years. Though it's nice that they are small, so is their sound. I was looking for something to use outdoors, on the go, that wouldn't weigh a lot, but would carry a lot of sound. This Charge 3 has turned out to be the perfect combination! Great size, great sound, long battery life and the charging feature is really handy. Bought one as a xmas present for someone so I could check it out. Liked it so much, bought one for myself! Wirelessly connected the two together to play music and it really filled the room! I haven't owned/used this long enough to tell if it's really durable, and didn't get a chance to test dozens of speakers of this size to tell if it's really the "best in sound quality" so my ratings there are just good. For what I'm using this for, so far, I am overall very pleased with this purchase!

Bought this for when we have bbq or fire pit parties outside this coming year. My husband and kids swiped it after it arrived and made it the tv speaker. They loke it way better for both shows and video games than the sound bar i had there. So i will be getting another one for outside it seems haha!

Luck with your search
It sounds better each time I used it.
I put off buying a BT spkr. for months I had no use for another device, when I saw the camouflage and IP7 rating I bought the JBL Charge 3 . WOW, I am so pleased with my purchase it even sounded better each day I used it. I also use a EQ to get the best sounds from it. Thanks JBL this is a home run, now you need to allow them to talk to your Link devices some how...

Bought it few weeks ago and I didn't pay to much and got the best sound I could possibly get for this price. "In my opinion"

What does the low frequency mode do
Hi! The low frequency mode is only intended to be used for by Service center for testing purposes. Prolonged use at moderate volumes will cause tears in the bass speaker to form. The worst is that it may void the warranty of your product.

The jbl connect+ works either with a computer or just with a phone
The Connect + works if the connection made by the source(phone or computer) to the Charge 3 is Bluetooth.

How do I charge my Flip 3?
You may use the supplied Micro USB cable to charge the JBL Flip 3 by lifting the flap that is located at the back of the speaker and plugging it into the charging port, and plugging an adapter to a wall outlet.

Warum kann ich nicht den Charge 3 mit dem Flip 4 koppeln ???
Die beiden Lautsprecher lassen sich nur miteinander koppeln, wenn beide Geräte über das gleiche
Pairingsystem verfügen. Da die Charge 3 (ab Werk) über das Pairingsystem "JBL Connect" und der
Flip 4 jedoch über "JBL Connect +" verfügt, ist die Koppelung zwischen diesen beiden
Lautsprechern nur durch ein Upgrade der Charge 3 auf "JBL Connect +" möglich.
Dieses Upgrade können Sie über die "JBL Connect" App ausführen. Bitte beachten Sie bei einem Upgrade der Charge 3 jedoch, dass sich dieser Upgrade nicht mehr rückgängig machen lässt. Die JBL Connect APP können Sie über den Play- oder Appstore Ihres Handys herunterladen.
