JBL Flip 5

 

The JBL Flip 5 speaker delivers a strong Bluetooth audio experience in an outdoor-friendly design you can customize to your liking.

Powerful audio for the size. IPX7 waterproof rating. Can be personalized on JBL's site.

Mono. No speakerphone functionality or aux input.

For its size and price, the JBL Flip 5 delivers some powerful audio in a waterproof design. If you want truly thunderous bass, you'll need a larger speaker that costs more. We're quite comfortable recommending the Flip 5, but there are plenty of...

JBL Flip 5 review: Killer sound with different color options

 

The JBL Flip 5 comes with up to 12-hour battery life, excellent JBL sound, 11 different color choices, and an IPX7 water-resistance rating.

Simple design ; Excellent sound ; 11 color options ; Able to pair multiple JBL speakers

Need compatible models to use PartyBoost ; Checking battery life requires you to press the top buttons ; No speakerphone or voice assistant functionality

JBL tends to keep the design of the majority of their speakers the same year over year and while that may be something people may not want to see, I think it’s great. Each speaker in JBL’s lineup has its own unique style, allowing users familiar with...

JBL Flip 5 review

 

The Flip 5 may not be feature-packed, but it sounds great

Solid bass and timing ; Great sense of acoustics ; PartyBoost stereo pairing

No aux-in or microphone ; Not Connect+ compatible ; Basic app

If all you want is a portable Bluetooth speaker that sounds as good as £100 can currently buy, you’ll be hard-pressed to better the JBL Flip 5

JBL Flip 5 review: The prince of portable

 

This portable Bluetooth speaker ticks the right boxes - waterproof, loud, long-lasting - but does it make sense to buy over its competition?

Waterproof design ; Loud and convincing sound ; Easy USB-C access

Not 360-degree sound ; Lots of competition - some slightly fuller sounding

With notable improvements over the Flip 4, this portable Bluetooth speaker ticks the small-scale, waterproof, bass-hitting and good-sounding boxes. There's no 360-degree sound design like some of the competition, though, which might see you look...
