No frills but good thrills
This was a happy accident as I purchased this on Ebay during a discount time and I thought I had purchased a Charge 4
When I found out I had indeed purchased a Charge Essential I looked online for reviews and found out that the Essential is actually all I really need as don't need to have multiple units hooked up, don't need to be able to have speaker phone capabilities, etc
Plus the Essential seemed to have clearer sound than the Charge 4 (although it may not be as loud at full volume perhaps)
Very happy with the sound, I live in an apartme...nt so don't need massive speakers, etc and even at default out of the box volume this fills my lounge with good clear sound and even has decent bass for such a compact device rated at 10W So yes for those who just want a bluetooth speaker that sounds good and does what it needs to do without all the extra things like being able to pair multiple speakers together then this is a great buy And you can purchase Charge 3 carry cases as thisis the same size as that unit so I was able to get a carry case easily as well

Great not perfect
This speaker has great sound and connects easily. Great for small gatherings. Unfortunately you can't connect it to other JBL speakers via Bluetooth or via the connect plus app the JBL has to offer. If you just want louder sound than your phone or computer, great! If you want to connect to other speakers and amplify the sound, don't invest.

Good speaker ....not versatile
I purchased two of these at Harvey Norman. I want them for my outdoor area. I specifically asked the sales person if I could connect two speakers together (ie to the one phone/ music source). Turns out this model doesn’t allow that. Very frustrating. No where on the box etc does it say it doesn’t do that. But JBL historically make a big deal of this feature on their Bluetooth speakers.
