JBL Clip 3


The JBL Clip 3 is a compact, waterproof speaker made for travel and sounds great for its size.

Solid audio for the size and price. Waterproof. Lightweight design with built-in carabiner.

Light on accessories. No real bass response.

From a design standpoint, there's nothing not to like about the ultra-portable, waterproof JBL Clip 3. Sonically, the speaker delivers a solid experience for its low price, though we still haven't gotten to the point of portable $60 speakers sounding...

JBL Clip 3 review: Not as good as the Clip 2


Save your money and buy the JBL Clip 2 instead

Improved battery life ; Waterproof

No daisy chaining ; Lacks 3.5mm aux lead

In fact, the older model is not only more versatile and cheaper, but also sounds better. If you’re looking for a small waterproof Bluetooth speaker to take travelling with you, you know which one to buy.

JBL Clip 3 is one of the few tiny Bluetooth speakers worth owning


The next generation of JBL's ultraportable Clip speaker delivers with improved sound quality, better battery life and a more rugged design.

The JBL Clip 3 offers improved sound and battery life in a more durable design than its predecessor. It's fully waterproof and sounds very good for its small size. The integrated carabiner allows you to clip the speaker to a bag or hang it from a peg.

It's a tad larger and heavier than the Clip 2, which is still available at a lower price.

The JBL Clip 3 is a better-sounding version of one of our favorite micro Bluetooth speakers.

Lacking a bit on the base


Its ok, it lacks a bit on the base, and a bit rich on the treble. I suppose its to be expected with such a small speaker. Could do with skip forward/back buttons. Good price though.

For the money great


For the price it's great. Solid, v easy to use and perfect for music in garden when doing chores. Also use it for podcasts. It's a 4 because the sound quality, whilst definitely punching above its weight for the price, isn't that full. It looks great...

Unable to link 2 together


Although the speaker sounds descent for the size and seems pretty tough, the daisy chain feature has been removed which was built into the clip 2. Big mistake from JBL as this was a great feature.

Brilliant little speaker but no skipping


I love my clip 3 yet one niggling problem which is why I have given this 4 stars is that I cannot skip/ reverse a track on the device and have to keep doing this from my phone. You still get that excellent sound you get from big speakers.
