5.0 out of 5 starsQuality of the product I received is poor
23 September 2018
The quality of the product I received isn't appropriate. It looks as if it has been used before. Also it has a worn out material as you can see in the picture. I have requested for a replacement and I hope I get a good one or else I'll ask for a refund. I don't think I'm paying so much to get such speaker quality We asked for replacement. We got the new one and better one. There is trust kept on amazon. So next time please check the product before you dispatch. Video also uploaded of the new one
I have paid 9999 for JBL charge 3 and the product providef was not giving proper battery backup as described, i ordered for replacement of the product and the new product delivered today is a duplicate one. Really shameful seller.
I bought this JBL charge 3 Bluetooth speaker from Amazon. I saw its functionality and put it aside as I had particularly bought it for an outing on 25 Jan. When we heard music on it that night the sound quality was horrible. My friend had a JBL charge 2 plus and it had excellent sound. When he checked my speaker-he found that it is not an original piece. I am feeling horrible and cheated. I have never had such an experience with Amazon earlier. I am an Amazon Prime customer for long now.. I request you to accept my case for return and refund even though the time has lapsed. This will keep my faith in your company for the future.
Intially I didn't find it's sound that amazing may be because I use to listen only in home theatre. But then after second day and an update I found the sound is really rich and more or less low freuquency favouring. Battery life is something very impressive. At low volumes bass dominates while at maximum volumes mids dominate and at this volume bass is lost. But no speakers should be played at its peak power. When compared to JBL extreme it is lot portable. I use it on my motorcycle, while playing badminton.
After few months sound quality started to diminish. Strongly believe a 1st copy was delivered, wouldn't recommend anyone to purchase from online. It's better to visit actual JBL store to validate authenticity rather then risking your money here for pirated products.
The product got delivered in two days time. Packaging was very neat. There were several forms of adapters to suit all international sockets I bought the red color, and it looks really pretty. Even the charger and its cable are red. I loved it The battery backup s very good. Havent tried a complete draining from complete charge yet, so cant tell how long it lasts, but it very good. The sound is surprisingly big. It easily fills an average 12X 14 feet room. The clarity, bass and overall quality is very good. The speakers do not crack even at the highest volume. I recommend it for music lovers.
I was torn between the UE Boom 2, the Bose Soundlink Mini II and the JBL Charge 3 but after extensive reviewing, I chose to go with this one since the UE distorted at higher volumes and the Bose didn't have enough bass punch.
1) Delivery: Great service by Amazon. Product was properly packaged and delivered a day before expected date (standard delivery)
2) Product Genuineness: Since this speaker is not officially available in India and is imported from outside, there is a chance you may believe your product is fake. After some checking I found out that "Sahil International" is the sole authorised imported of JBL products in India as of September 2016. All JBL speakers are sold by him or if you're buying from another seller it's pretty normal he might have bought from him. If your speaker has an import sticker from Sahil International on the box, you're good to go no matter the seller.
Now coming to the speaker Pros: - Form Factor is really good. You can keep it horizontal or vertical and it won't fall due to the grooves in the sides. - BASS KING!! -If you want heavy bass, look no further. - The bass radiators on the side vibrating while the song is playing looks really sick. - Power Bank - It doubles as a power bank (6000 mah) I haven't tested it yet but a good feature to have - Water Resistance - It's not waterproof but splash proof and works well even underwater - Immense Battery - JBL advertises 20 hours of battery on a single charge at 50% volume but in reality it's much much greater than that. I play my songs at approximately 60% volume and I've used the speaker for around 20 hours and it still has 1 of 5 lights on (~20%) - All round performance - While this certainly packs a good bass punch, it is one of the most all round speakers I've heard... doesn't matter what kind of songs you like, it'll excel at playing them
Cons: -Despite being 360° speaker the sound is slightly louder towards the front and lower towards the back. I may be nitpicking but it's a slight inconvenience when you're standing behind the speaker -The accompanying android app is very tedious to use.
All in all this the best all round Bluetooth speaker of 2016 despite being a great choice for bass heads. Go for it.
I received original product, i recommend the seller Appario Retail Pvt Ltd... Awesome bass, good battery life... Sound clarity....👍 But the courier Delivery sevice are very bad.... I received after 22days..... Courier service too slow 👎
Though rating it 5 Star, but the voice quality and clarity could have been more better in this price. I read lot of reviews before purchasing it and found that Bose speakers are good, but I wanted something which I can carry easily. In Bose, either you get too small speaker which doesn't give you that high volume or too big speaker which is not easy to carry. Hence, this one beats maximum odds, with this price range it is a good one, but still feel the price is a little higher.
I LIKE - This is a wonderful product. Sound quality is awesome. Build quality is good too. This is IPX7 - ie. this is waterproof for 30 minutes at 1 meter depth provided you the port cover snapped in. Splashes of water is no problem. But then don't keep dipping in the water. Connectivity is good. One can plug headphone out to line input of JBL Charge 3 and play directly. Bluetooth connection is already there. One can use JBL Charge 3 as a powerbank too for charging their smart phone on the go. I DID NOT LIKE - The side base radiators are open and susceptible to physical damage. Only if JBL could have covered it with some strong mesh this would have made my day. This would have made it easy to pack and go. Now I have to purchase a hard case to put it in my backpack. I WANT - songs playable through the given USB port by just pluging in my collection in a USB flash drive.
Brilliant product. A friend have Flip 4 so I was looking for the same but suddenly saw the Charge 3 at just 1k extra, didnt know about the model so did some research and took it. Got it at just 8,400. Awesome sound, I mostly like bass base musics and its just built for that. Way different than Flip 4. If you are a bass lover then just go for it. Charge 4 already in market but not sure if its came in Indian market.
Got it from Appario Retail Private Ltd it has good reviews but the the one I got its main seal was tempered, like someone already opened it. But inside everything was factory pack like. Also checked with barcode and its definitely a genuine one. So if you have any doubt like many buyer said about fake product then 1st check with barcode.
Most important, the stock Charge 3 has connect feature which can pair with another jbl speaker (1+1) but flip 4 and other newer models have connect+ feature which can pair with 100 jbl speaker. If you use phone app JBL connect there is a new firmware available, upgrade and it will upgrade to connect+. So the charge 3 also can connect upto 100 speakers 😉😉😉
