Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound quality I bought this at the recommendation of a friend and I am ever so happy with it. The sound quality is amazing, especially considering the size of the device. Plus, they had it in my favourite colour :). Great price, good delivery service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bass and volume I bought this speaker to go in my bathroom, because it is waterproof. The sound easily fills the room and has quality and depth that can’t be achieved from a phone or cheap speaker. I like the design and feel of the product because it looks premium and hard wearing. It is very simple to pair with a phone and remembers the device to simplify future use. I would recommend it to a friend or buy it as a gift in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome little Box! Right out of the box, I liked the new style. It looks tougher and I like the hanging loop. The sound is amazing for it's small size. It gets better base than a lot of the larger boxes I've had. I dropped it, and bounced it, and hung it in the shower, but it kept on ticking. I've had it for a week and have not had to charge it yet. If you are looking for a small portable music source, you can't go wrong with the GO 3.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great sound, but doesn't work with windows 10. Just got for christmas, and connects via bluetooth, but it won't work with windows 10. It shows the sound playback device as disconnected, even though it's connected via bluetooth link. Searching for hours on forums shows it's a driver issue. Would gladly rate 5 stars if there was some testing and support from the manufacturer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cool little speaker! Though I’ve only had this speaker for a few days now, I’m really glad I went for this one. After saying goodbye to my busted up little speaker that has been my companion since I was a young teen, I thought about buying a speaker from this brand to replace my old speaker. A lot of my relatives and a few friends own JBL speakers, so I know this a well-know and trustworthy brand. I saw this speaker on sale and I just couldn’t say no to the price. I placed my order, got to my house a day before the expected delivery date, and I excitedly ran to the kitchen to open up the package. Taking it out of the box and testing it out, it connected to my phone in less than 10 seconds and it’s super easy to use and figure out. I chose a few random songs to test out my JBL Go 3 and this little speaker exceeded my expectations. My old speaker was nowhere close to being as loud as this one. I don’t even have to turn it up all the way to get the range of sound that I want. The battery life is also great. From the moment I took it out of the package on Friday to yesterday afternoon, it lasted me that long before I saw the blinking red light indicator by the power button. I was gonna use the little charging cable that came in the box, but I have a charger for my Nintendo Switch controller hooked up to my Switch docking station and, seeing that my Go 3 also uses a type-C charging cable, I just found it easier to hook it up there. I’ll just save the speaker’s original charging cable for when I’m on the go. All in all, I’m definitely happy with my purchase and I hope this little speaker lasts me a very long time before I need to replace it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Broke Day 1 I bought one of these for my 2 year old to listen to in the bath. This item has a very specific waterproof rating that allows this but when floating on top of bath water it immediately stopped working. Not as advertised.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Probably the best in its class There is a limit, of course, to how good a speaker this small can sound. However, what the GO 3 achieves with its compact form factor and affordable price is impressive. The bass is not floor-thumping, but GO 3 does have noticeable bass, which some speakers I've heard in this class do not have. Overall the sound is clear and powerful. I love the cool styling too. Battery life is very good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great package Bought this for my wife as a stocking present with the plan to sit it in our Riley Elf, No modern speakers in a 50 year old car. hooked it up to the iPhone in about 2 minutes and was really impressed with the sound quality and robustness. Sits in the parcel shelf and sounds great, was worried about the size and whether it would be drowned out by the engine but it performed incredibly well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mighty tiny!! I was looking for a small form speaker and like everyone else I looked at youtube reviews. Finding the Jbl go 3 was a surprise. Knowing that some reviewers may exaggerate. I thought for £28 delivered it was worth a try. So the speaker turned up quickly and a went to setting it up. The first surprise was how small it was. This speaker fits in the palm of my hand. Easily pocketable, it’s form perfect for anywhere to bring your music. The sound is what really impressed me though. Surprisingly stronger sound than I would expect with some heft in the bass level with a pleasant rounded sound. This will not disappoint. Easy to hang from a back pack or branch water proof and dust proof. This can go anywhere. 5hour battery life is a rough estimate. But I carry a phone charger battery which can easily connect to this and give me many more hours than I could ever need. So don’t hesitate, go buy this gem of a speaker.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sound for tiny speaker! This speaker literally fits in the palm of my hand. I am amazed at the loudness of the music when play at full volume. Doesn't have the best depth of sound, but given the relative size I didn't expect much. Easy to connect out of the box. Perfect for attaching to a backpack for easy transport while biking to the beach or the park. A great speaker for the price

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely good for the price Extremely good It’s just a shame that they ruin a lovely design and a good quality speaker a great big JBL stupid logo stuck on a Well-designed small speaker speaker is too small for such a large logo it’s a shame I use black marker pen to try and dim it down speaker when you own one of these speakers you’ll realise what I mean ridiculously large logo

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazed! With that size and at that price it can't get any better. Really powerful, enough juice to enjoy your music anywhere for a few hours. Don't expect a massive bass as that is something impossible within this size but still has a lil punch, really really pleased. Got the blue and pick and I think is the best looking one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super tiny, but massive punch for the size Bought this guy a few days ago from a military exchange. It was $35, so ya'll are getting ripped paying full price. Bass smacks! I bought it to keep on my shower ledge. Seems to charge quickly. It's got good weight and feels like it should be priced around $60. If it had wireless pad charging....I'd give it 10 stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent little speaker For its size it’s very good! Went for JBL as I already have the Charge 3 so expected it to be good and it hasn’t disappointed, although it’s a shame I can’t connect the two. Bought for the bathroom so it’s waterproof enough to have inside the shower cubicle or out and will be great for travel too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Packs a punch!! This little speaker packs a punch! Perfect size to move from room to room while cleaning!!! Awesome sound! You would never think by the size of it! It’s really loud! Awesome bass! Would definitely recommend if your looking for a compact portable speaker. Once again JBL didn’t disappoint!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Goes with me everywhere Super cute shape, feels quality, sound is great for the size, it follows me in the shower, the kitchen, in the car, the form factor is so practical. My partner has the charge 5 and is is so much better sound wise, but the go is the ultimate 'take anywhere' speaker with a good sound.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another fine product from JBL I have the other two go speakers the one and two but the new Go three does not disappoint with its added low end which is a delight especially from a speaker this size.I have the range of JBL speakers from Flips to the two Xtremes , Ian definitely a believer in the brand.

I once went to a concert, and I saw the speakers used there are JBL VRX932LA and JBL VRX918S. I suddenly get's amazed by the sound, it's high SPL, and the bass is like the waves hitting my chest. How can I bring that experience home? What to buy? Thanks!!
