JBL Flip 3 review

 

Third time's a charm, right? When it comes to JBL's Flip 3 Bluetooth speaker, it is. This third-generation model has a more streamlined, splashproof design and better battery life (at 10 hours), while the price remains the same at $100, £100 or AU$150....

The JBL Flip 3 is a highly portable Bluetooth speaker that's splashproof and designed to be used horizontally or vertically. It sounds very good and plays very loud for its size, can act as a speakerphone and offers improved battery life at up to 10...

Some distortion at higher volumes with certain tracks.

Enhanced with better battery life and splashproof design, the Flip 3 is one of the best mini portable Bluetooth speakers available.

JBL Flip 3 (Blue)

 

I received a black review unit, but the speaker, which weighs in at just less than a pound (15.9 ounces or 450 grams), is available in seven other colors and like its predecessors can be stood up vertically or laid out horizontally. Since one of the...

JBL Flip3

 

The JBL Flip3 is a splash-proof portable Bluetooth speaker with powerful audio output for its size.

Quality audio performance with rich lows and well-defined highs. Built-in speakerphone. Connects to multiple devices at once. Splash-proof

Can distort on deep bass tracks. Bass response is better at moderate volumes than high volumes

JBL's latest affordable portable Bluetooth speaker, the Flip3, packs some serious power for its modest size. At $99.95, the Flip3 is a solid option if you're looking for a splash-proof speaker that can be thrown in a tote or a carry-on. It can get...

The JBL Flip 3 Review: Big Sound For A Decent Price

 

I have a good number of Bluetooth speakers and I can now add the JBL Flip 3 to the mix. I have a waterproof one in the shower, a Logitech UE Boombox in the kitchen, an iLive 2.1 Bluetooth speaker set in my office and another small no-name Bluetooth...

Great sound, great battery life, good speakerphone quality

Buttons could be in a more convenient place

JBL Flip 3 Review: JBL Flips on the Bass

 

If you're looking for an inexpensive, portable Bluetooth speaker, the Flip 3 should be at the top of your list. With rich bass and good volume, the speaker delivers on sound quality; add in water resistance, a good speakerphone and decent battery life,...

Rich bass for a small speaker ; Good speakerphone ; Splash-proof

Distorts at loud volume

With better bass and water resistance, the JBL Flip 3 is one of the best $100 portable Bluetooth speakers available.

Review: JBL Flip3 and Xtreme aren't afraid of the water

 

Portable speakers are a great way to take the party anywhere, but many lack in the robustness department to the point where taking one to the beach is like using a Faberge egg as a rugby ball. To keep the tunes going even on a rainy day, JBL's Flip3...

Both speakers are powered by built-in lithium-polymer batteries, and they can each pair with up to three devices simultaneously via Bluetooth, as well as act as an echo-cancelling speakerphone. Connectivity also extends to the JBL Connect technology...

JBL Flip 3 speaker review: A powerful well-designed Bluetooth speaker - Tech2

 

JBL, the “aam janta” consumer arm of Harman, now owned by Samsung and is well attuned to what its users want. Flip 3 is a product that fills the gap for a mid-range Bluetooth speaker that strikes a balance between cost and good sound.

Many sellers are selling JBL Flip 2 (now discontinued) for less than Rs 4,500 which is a good buy for that price.

JBL Flip 3 review

 

A return to form for JBL, the Flip 3 is worthy of the product's history

Smooth, warm sound ; Impressive bass weight ; Packs a punch

Soundstage more closed-in than some competitors ; Could be more expressive

With a sonic quality worthy of the product’s history, plus better battery life and connectivity, this should be added to your shortlist.
