Waterproof Bluetooth speaker plays louder, but sound quality takes a step back

THE GOOD: The JBL Charge 3 is a well-designed, fully waterproof portable Bluetooth speaker that features good battery life and doubles as an external charger for your portable devices. It also has built-in speakerphone capabilities, and plays loudly with strong bass for its size and price class.

THE BAD: While it plays louder than the JBL Charge 2+ it doesn’t sound as good.

THE BOTTOM LINE: The JBL Charge 3 is larger than its predecessor, fully waterproof, and plays louder — but it should sound a little better.

There are a zillion wireless Bluetooth speakers you can buy these days, but three brands rise to the top of the heap: Bose, Ultimate Ears and JBL. And of those three, only JBL makes models that also double as backup batteries for phones and other USB-powered devices: the Charge line.
