comment
" ...  It is better than jbl charge 3.  ...  "
comment
" ...  My verdict about this speaker is that you can close both your eyes and buy it because it’s competition jbl charge 3 sells for 11.5k and at 8.4k offering better bass and slightly less treble i think this is by far the best speaker in this range of mid-tier speaker category it is almost perfect but that lack of treble makes it only to best not the perfect speaker but again if you are loooking for an speaker which sound good and portable too then this is a bang for buck deal for u  ...  "
