Go over the physical features jbl extreme and jbl charge 3 are nearly identical ofcourse the extreme is much bigger, now first of the mid size speaker is portable coming in 8.38 inches wide, almost 3 and half inches from front to back. Now the weight doesn't feel bad coming at 1.76 lbs it's in the heavier side of mid size speakers but the weight feel is evenly distributed and portability should never been an issue. Taking a closer look JBL can't rid of that aluminum grilled and one with this ruggerized durable fabric which has been holding up well from my test, now on the sides JBL offering those passive bass radiators you see moving and shaking when sounds is being pump through. Now similar to the UE boom 2 an improvement over the charge 2 plus model the JBL charge 3 is now IPX7 Certified, many speakers in the market are only splash resistance but with IPX7 it can be submerged in the water up to 1 meter to a maximum of 30 minutes and can float in water once it accidentally fell on the pool, lake or sea and it will work perfectly fine.

Engineering brilliance.

First, a bit about the situation that this product is being used in. I am a Sanitation Worker for The City Of New York. Not only are we required to dispose of curbside trash, we are also responsible for snow removal. This particular task requires many hours of drive time when large storms hit our city. This is where this fabulous piece of engineering comes into play. Before, during and after a storm, many hours are spent in a plow truck alone. The only company we have is music. The shifts are normally 12 to 13 hours a day and last many of days in a row. The JBL Charge 3 stands up to this task without a hitch! The battery is challenged daily for days on end. This unit never fails to impress. The battery hasn't a problem with supplying music at a reasonable volume, not only for one shift, but sometimes close to 2-12 hour shifts without a charge! The sound is incredible for such a compact unit. It's easily stored and stays in place where ever you chose to put it which could be quite challenging in a work truck. The Bluetooth set up couldn't be easier. Clear, uninterrupted music for many of hours! Keep up the great work JBL!

Fantastic speaker!

This is a fantastic speaker. JBL has truly hit a home run with this one. I have a charge 2, a clip, and I've had a JBL Xtreme for about 4 months. This speaker is far superior to the Charge 2. It has a much fuller sound without the boosting of the bass and treble. The mids were lacking with the Charge 2 and it will not get nearly as loud as the Charge 3. This speaker has much better battery life, is completely waterproof, and allows for linking to my Xtreme..
