JBL Go 3 review: Tiny $40 Bluetooth speaker with big improvements


Like the more expensive JBL Clip 4 ($70), the Go 3 is available in multiple color options. The speaker is designed to play either in a vertical position or laid flat, with a rubberized bottom (and rubberized ribs on its side) to keep it from moving...

Pocket-size speaker with impressive sound for its small size Improved, more rugged design IPX 67 water resistance (waterproof and dustproof) Charges via USB-C Integrated loop

Battery life is only 5 hours No speakerphone capability

The JBL Bluetooth speaker that received the biggest improvements for 2021 is among the company's smallest. The JBL Go 3 has a completely new look -- it's now covered in durable fabric instead of having the naked plastic design of its Go predecessors --...

JBL Go 3 Review


JBL makes plenty of large, powerful Bluetooth speakers, but the Go 3 isn't one of them. At $39.95, the Go 3 is about as portable (and affordable) as it gets—it'll fit in any backpack or tote without issue. It's also fully waterproof, making it ideal...

Rich, crisp, relatively powerful audio for the size Compact, easily portable design Fully waterproof Affordable

No speakerphone Limited onboard controls Weak battery life

JBL's Go 3 speaker delivers solid wireless audio performance in a waterproof, easily portable design for a low price.

JBL Go 3 review: A punchy, pocket-sized waterproof speaker


The JBL Go 3 is an impressive little Bluetooth speaker with full waterproofing, plenty of bass and better-than-expected battery life.

Very affordable ; Portable and waterproof ; Relatively long battery life ; Six color options

Sound is warm but lacks detail

The Wonderboom 2 is a better choice if you can afford, but the Go 3 holds up against the $49 StormBox Micro just as well as it will an accidental dip in the pool.

Superb Ultra Portable Speaker


Bought this to replace a Kitsound Boombar and wasnt expecting much with its 5 hour battery life. I was so wrong - Pairs up straight away and after some minor fiddling with the volume controls on the speaker and my tablet I was more than happy. The...
