When it comes to the soundstage, the perceived size, and width of the sound created by the speaker, the directionality of the sound, and whether the reproduction is stereo or mono.
The Megaboom 3 blows the JBL Charge 4 out of the water, as it has omnidirectional sound.
This ensures it sounds the same from all angles, which is ideal for outdoor use and parties. The frequency response of the Megaboom 3 is also a little better than the JBL Charge 4, according to testing.
The Megaboom 3 wins by a lot in this department. With the UE app, you can customize the lows, mids, and high frequencies.
You can connect two source devices (phones, laptops, etc) and eight devices.
With the Megaboom 3, you also get frequent firmware updates via the app while the JBL app is sluggish to update and doesn’t allow you to edit any settings. The speakers also stay in sync more and don’t cut as much.
The range of both the devices is about the same. They both offer BlueTooth 4.2. The range of BlueTooth 4.2 is said to be around 60 meters or 200 feet.
Even though it is 15 dollars more expensive, and the JBL’s design is smoother on the eye, the sound is more important when considering the best speaker, and the Megaboom edges the overall ranking because of its sound.
Its frequency response, software functionality, overall loudness, increased durability, and omnidirectional sound give it the edge over the JBL Charge 4.

Is It Worth It To Buy JBL Charge 4?
