Why I suggest JBL Charge 4?
- You will be able to answer crystal clear calls from your speaker on the Charge 4 as there is a mic on the speaker. But Megaboom 3 doesn’t have this useful feature.
- JBLCharge 4 is small-sized and weighs less than the Megaboom 3. So, it will be easier to carry this one into your party space and outdoors as well. In contrast, Megaboom 3 weighs much and is tough to carry.
- Charge 4 can connect up to 2 smartphones or tablets wirelessly to the speaker to enjoy the powerful sound. But Megaboom 3 can’t connect 2 devices like Charge 4.
- It comes with a powerful 20 hours of battery backup with a 7500mAH battery. On the contrary, UE Megaboom won’t give you a decent battery backup like Charge 4.
- Charge 4 has a premium design that looks better than the giant-sized Megaboom 3.
All these key points made JBL Charge 4 the winner over Megaboom 3. For all those reasons, we highly recommend Charge 4 for you.
