I have been using JBL GO 3 . It is decent product. It has attractive design with good sound quality. However, it better to place the speaker vertical to avoid from being fell down since it highly vibrates on max volume. Battery backup is decent. over it is worth to have one.

Pros

  • Portable
  • Good bass
  • decent battery
  • auto turn off after sometime when not connected status
  • water proof
  • Loud enough for close listeners

Cons

  • can not use JBL connect
  • Over vibration on max volume
  • No AUX
  • Does not show battery percentage
