Just bought one recently, am very impressed for the size and I'm used to some decent hifi speakers!
Tempting - I have the Charge 2 and it is a fine piece of kit...

Don't know if I can justify the upgrade or not?
I have a sneaky suspicion there's a charge 4 on the way
Bugger, so tempted! (is this 2x10w?)

very impressed by JBL speakers, only have the "flip 2" so far and its way better than anything else in its size / price range.
I own charge 3 for 5 months already. I can honestly recommend. Great quality for such small speaker (but bigger comparing to flip's), and very loud. Battery last very long as well. I am using it in the kitchen during cooking usually - and it last for about 3 weeks on single charge (average 40min-1hr per day).
Richer Sounds have the 2+ for £79.99 too....some reviews have it as being better for sound quality...albeit at loss of waterproof and extra charge/run time - 2hrs less..

I got my charge 3 the day it was released, and had the charge 2+ previously for a year, I can honestly the charge 3 is miles better, however the bass initially wasn't as deep but a sw update about 3months ago fixed that. Worth every penny at this price and then some. Couldn't recommend this speaker enough.

I do as well lots of price drops recently, struggling to see how they are gonna improve much over the charge 3 now though!

Yeah it's 2x10w, goes pretty loud although it better on the ears a few notches under max. I have to say I am very impressed!

I use the Power Amp app as it's got a built-in equaliser.

I tweak the treble up slightly and the bass down smidgen, it's a definite improvement in sound quality over the stock settings.

I find the treble on the charge 3 to be slightly muffled compared to certain other speakers in the £100/50 price bracket, but none of them are waterproof, so I think it's a trade off.

I've heard a modded charge 3 with the front case removed and it's a completely different sound, everything sounds bright and crisp but with no loss of bass.

So maybe that's where the improvements will come from with the next charge 3 putting it in the the same league as this

In terms of sound quality the Denon kicks the JBL into touch, along with some highly regarded £300+ speakers, the Denon is a benchmark speaker at £150/60 nothing can touch it. But for £89 this is a stupidly good buy.
Is this much better than the Anker Soundcore 2?

Yes it is, plenty of youtube videos with actual sound of both side by side. Use your headphone/earphone and compare youself, see which one you prefer.

Not in stock till 7th jan on amazon.
The jbl online site is better if you are looking for other colours(than black), you can get them for £ 93.60 before new year.
