3.Has a passive radiator
JBL Charge 3
JBL Flip Essential
A passive radiator is a type of driver (speaker) that doesn't have a voice coil and a magnet. The sound vibrations produced by a passive radiator depend on its mass and the size of its enclosure. It is usually used in combination with a woofer to produce deep bass tones.
Audio output power is based on the number of speakers and their power in watts. High audio output power results in loud, clear sounds.
5.highest frequency

20000Hz

20000Hz

The highest frequency at which device produces audio. The higher the high-frequency response, the clearer and crispier the treble.
6.has a noise-canceling microphone

The time it takes to fully charge the battery.

Connectivity
