Hi there,
Is the JBL Xtreme worth the difference in price to the JBL Charge 3?
Why is it so much more expensive?
Submitted 20 days ago
A:
The reason that the JBL Xtreme is so much more expensive is because it is much larger and more powerful than the Charge 3. It's difficult to see in pictures, but the Xtreme is more than twice the size of the Charge 3 and requires a shoulder strap to carry around.
If you're looking for a huge booming speaker for a party or something, the Xtreme is a great choice, but because of its size it's not nearly as portable as the Charge 3 (which is also very durable and waterproof).

JPL pulse 2 or JBL Charge 3?
Submitted 49 days ago
A:

Depends on what you'll be using it for. The Charge 3 can be submerged in water without getting damaged, and it's a little smaller and more portable. The Pulse 2 light show is really cool for parties, and it can get rained on, but it can't be fully submerged. Both are really durable and have excellent sound quality. I have the Pulse 2 and I love it! (I mostly use it at home and at the beach).
