Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Speaker I got this speaker a few days ago. This is the best speaker i have ever used in my whole life. What I have learned from having this speaker is that JBL are masters of bass. This is also the most durable speaker ever. This is 100% water proof. I know it says it could go about 3.3 feet deep in water (around 1 meter for my metric friends) But i could get it around 5 feet (1.5 meters). Rate 10/10 on speaker i am excited for their next one!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Speaker Yet I got this speaker less than 12 hours ago and I have to say, it is the best speaker I have ever heard. Amazing bass and mids, paired with insane durability this is the best all in one speaker.

My friend wanted to use my speaker for some music that he wanted to play. However his phone would not connect. May you please tell me what is wrong?

Asked by: kkes
All you need to do is place the CHARGE 3 back on pairing-mode. To do this, while the CHARGE 3 is on, simply press and hold the Bluetooth button for 2 seconds. The light should start flashing blue, indicating that the CHARGE 3 is ready to be paired. Turn your device’s Bluetooth on and you should now be able to reconnect to the CHARGE3.

Why are the mid range and high end so muffled and muddy in the Charge 3? It sounds terrible. I've tried all the presets on my iPhone- even treble booster sounds muted on this speaker. Very disappointing!

Asked by: The distortion unit
Our speakers, including the CHARGE 3, are optimized to sound best with NO tonal adjustments and do not have an option to adjust bass or treble. Boosting frequencies to enhance bass and/or other sounds will likely result in reduced sonic quality and/or damage to the speakers. This is why there is no application specific to adjusting the bass or treble. Please do a reset to try and fix the issue. While turned ON, press and hold the “Phone” and “Volume +” buttons at the same time. I noticed that you are in Canada. If this doesn’t help, please submit a case at info@eriksonconsumer.com and our Customer Service team will be more than glad to further assist you.

Is it possible to hardwire the speaker to my lap top? I am a music teacher and the sound will drop out once in a while. I would love to have a hard wire connection so I don't have to rely on the bluetooth connection. Also, is there a user manual online?

Asked by: stuberry26
Yes. You may use a standard 3.5mm AUX cable and connect it to the AUX-in port of the CHARGE 3 and connect it to the headphone port of your laptop. As for the manual, please submit a case at www.jbl.com/support-contact.html and our Customer Service team will be glad to assist you.

I just got my charge 3 last week and only yesterday I put it on charge since it had 1 light. After 2.5hr was fully charged. My question is if this is normal for the speaker to charge in this time since I was reading online that a full charge takes 3.5hr.

Asked by: John_1232
That is normal. Since you had charged the unit with 1 light indicator remaining, it still had a charge. That's why it only took 2.5 hours for it to be fully charged. It didn’t have to do a full charge from scratch, which would have taken nearly 3.5 hours.

Can these speakers be used in car with bluetooth along with the other in built existing speakers

Asked by: Girish
Your CHARGE 3 is a portable speaker and not a car speaker though you can use it in your car and connect it wirelessly to any phones or devices via Bluetooth. If you are using the Charge 3 in your vehicle, please make sure it is easily accessible and securely fastened

How do I connect this unit to my Bluetooth Stereo in my truck? The instructions are very vague.

Asked by: Merderf
To connect this CHARGE 3 portable speaker to your Truck’s Bluetooth stereo via Bluetooth, simply press the Bluetooth button on your CHARGE 3 speaker (if first time pairing, once the unit is turned ON it will automatically go in pairing mode) and it will give you a slow blinking blue light. Then turn ON your Stereo’s Bluetooth and look and select for the CHARGE 3 portable speaker’s name. Once its connected led light on CHARGE 3 should be stable blue. Then start playing music. On the other hand, if your Truck’s Bluetooth stereo is a receiver, then you will be needing a source such as a phone, then connect the phone with your CHARGE 3 and start playing music.

I have a Charge 3 and Flip 3. If I try to connect them, the Charge 3 cuts out and will not play consistently. I have reset both speakers more than 5 times and tried to reconnect them with the same results. Location does not matter, home, work or park.

Asked by: TyBroady
Thanks for taking time to send us your feedback. Please ensure the distance between the source and the CHARGE 3. It should be within 10m radius. You may also try to interchange the connection between your CHARGE 3 and FLIP 3. If it persists, and you noticed that the CHARGE 3 is behaving erratically, reset the unit is worth trying. Please these few steps. Power ON the device, then press and hold the Volume+ and the Play/Pause button at the same time. When the device switches off a few seconds, sounding the OFF prompt, it has been reset. If this cannot be prevented after doing a reset, .
