Amp up this summer or any adventure with the unbeatable beats of the JBL Charge 4 waterproof Bluetooth speaker. With many other name brands like Bose, Ultimate Ears, or Marshall exploring the thresholds of portability and durability, JBL’s latest addition to the Charge portable speaker series does not disappoint. Competitively discounted at $120, sport the

JBL Charge 4

in black, blue, white, camouflage and more with Amazon’s 33% price cut.

The JBL Charge 4’s rugged design has enough makes it a great outdoor speaker. At a glance, it may not look far off from the Charge 3, but it’s slightly bigger in dimensions by more or less a centimeter and heavier at 3.25 pounds. Though it may weigh you down a bit, you should still be able to carry it your bag.

With an IPX7 waterproof rated exterior,  this portable speaker gives more room for fun and excitement by eliminating the worry of having to shield it from spills or from being submerged entirely. Just don’t abuse it or push it to depths greater than 1-meter in a 30-minute time period. Should you accidentally drop it from a boat or dock, these speakers can manage to stay afloat to give you a reasonable window of opportunity to recover it.

Since sharing is caring, wireless connectivity of up to two smartphones or tablets is possible via Bluetooth. Take things a notch higher, besides getting to take turns in being DJ, you can opt for stereo sharing of over 100 JBL connect+ enabled speakers. Much like its predecessors, the JBL Charge 4 has the capacity to charge your devices through its USB port. It also packs 20 hours of portable playtime in its rechargeable lithium-ion 7,500mAh battery. This way you will rarely find yourself low on power as well as enjoy going through most of the day of nonstop listening.

JBL Charge sits between the price range and specifications of the Flip and Xtremes series. Unlike the Charge 3, the Charge 4 sports a larger single oval shape driver instead of two small active drivers. Basically, the Charge 3 may score better in large open spaces and since it’s not a 360-degree speaker, placement matters. On the plus side, JBL’s dual passive radiators strive to intensify sound with strong, deep bass.

The

JBL Charge 4

is a versatile portable Bluetooth speaker that delivers a rich sound and housed in a fashionable and indestructible design. It’s also a solid bet to future proof your device as it comes with a USB-C. Normally retailing for $180, this camouflage speaker can be yours for $60 less on Amazon. Get your ears ready for an immensely charged experienced while stocks last.

When having a party outdoors, whether on the beach, a campsite, or even in your own backyard, it's essential to have great music. The solution: A portable Bluetooth speaker. While no one really intends to get their speaker wet, accidents do happen, and so it's best to get one that's waterproof. One of the best makers of waterproof Bluetooth speakers (actually, we consider the company the best) is Ultimate Ears. Not only can you dunk UE speakers in the water, but they also sound phenomenal and look ridiculously cool to boot. Right now, you can purchase Ultimate Ears' Wonderboom, Blast, and Megaboom 3 on Amazon at amazing discounted prices. Get them for up to $143 off.
Ultimate Ears Wonderboom
– $52, was $100

The Wonderboom sits somewhere in the middle of Ultimate Ears’ line of rugged Bluetooth speakers, between the company’s cheaper, more portable models, and its bigger, louder, more expensive ones. It is cylindrical like all its brethren, but is shorter and stouter. Capping its top and bottom are slip-proof rubberized plastic, while a hard mesh grille of waterproof fabric surrounds its circumference. The power button and an all-in-one “UE” button are located on the top, while the instantly recognizable giant volume buttons are on the side. Inside the 15-ounce Wonderboom are two 40mm drivers supported by two passive radiators, which allow the speaker to project its so-called 360-degree sound output. The Micro USB port is protected by a small tab on the bottom of the speaker, although Ultimate Ears assures that water won’t enter and wreak havoc on this speaker’s internal electronics even if this little door is left ajar. Finally, you’ll find a tiny bungee loop on the top that lets you hook it up to your backpack.
