JBL, the pioneer of audio, today launched the ultimate in high-powered portable Bluetooth companion speakers. The JBL CHARGE 3 series boasts quality stereo sound unlike any other; so whether you’re on a boat, at the beach, by the pool or dancing in the rain, thanks to a clever waterproof design, durable fabric and rugged housing, the CHARGE 3 lets you take the party anywhere.
With built-in noise and echo-cancelling speakerphone, the CHARGE 3 gives you crystal-clear conversation at the press of a button. Not only that, but the completely wireless functionality enables you to link one CHARGE 3 speaker to another CHARGE 3 (or alternatively, another JBL Connectenabled speaker) in order to amplify your listening experience.
The CHARGE 3 also boasts a long-lasting power bank so you’re not always recharging – in fact, its high-capacity 6,000mAh battery provides 20 hours of playtime. Best yet, the handy inbuilt USB output lets you charge your smartphone and tablet while you’re out and about– meaning you’re never going to be stuck somewhere with a dwindling battery.
“We know the CHARGE 3 will be a ‘must-have’ for any music-loving millennial,” commented Marcus Fry, Brand Activation Director at Harman. “Not only does it come with that killer punchy bass sound that JBL is so renowned for, but feature-wise, it comes out on top against any other competitor line, hands down no argument. We believe it is the best sounding Bluetooth Speaker of its size in the market today and challenge people to do a comparison. The CHARGE 3 really is a superior product on every front, feature-packed at a price point that really works. We’re immensely proud of it.”
Listen wirelessly. Charge endlessly. Take it anywhere. Get it wet and it doesn’t matter. The CHARGE 3 is set to become the life of every outdoor party.
Wireless Bluetooth Streaming Wirelessly connect up to three smartphones or tablets to the speaker and take turns playing party DJ with the CHARGE 3’s gutsy stereo sound.
6000mAh Power Bank The built-in rechargeable Li-ion battery supports up to 20 hours of playtime and charges smartphones and tablets via USB.
Speakerphone Take crystal clear calls from your speaker with the touch of a button thanks to the noise and echocancelling speakerphone. Not only that, but you can launch SIRI from the speaker as well.
