JBL Flip 3 Splashproof Portable Bluetooth Speaker

Woman Taking a Shower

The Bluetooth Flip 3 portable Bluetooth speaker is the successor to the Flip 2 and brings significant improvements such as splash resistance, better bass and extended battery life.

What’s in the Box?

The JBL Flip 3 of course, an orange Usb cable (mmhhh…..), a quick start guide, a safety sheet and a warranty card.

Design

The speaker has a nice cylindrical shape that will allow you to slip it into a pocket or bag very easily. It is made of a strong and durable material, not a simple plastic like the Flip 2, which makes it easier to handle.

However, it is only splashproof and not waterproof: it will withstand some splashing, but do not completely plunge it into the water!

The speaker can be placed horizontally or vertically, and a wrist strap can be attached to the wrist for easier transport.

Blended into the fabric are the control buttons: Bluetooth pairing, volume control and take/end calls. Unfortunately there are no skip tracks buttons: you must skip tracks using your phone. Under the speaker you’ll find the power button, the JBL connect button, the Usb port and the Aux input. You will also find 5 Led lights to show how much battery power is left.

Sound

The sound produced is stereo, and 2 passive radiators allow it to deliver bass with a very good presence. The medium and high frequencies bring out the voices and instruments that are a little buried in the mix. High frequencies may be a little uncomfortable at high volume, but nothing very embarrassing.

Battery

The Flip 3 enjoys a good battery life of 10 hours, and only 3.5 hours for a full charge. Again, it’s a step forward from the Flip 2. And if you’re in a hurry, letting it charge for only 10 minutes will allow you to enjoy the speaker for over an hour.

Connectivity

The Flip 3 is equipped with Bluetooth 4.1: it can connect seamlessly with all smartphones and tablets on the market. However, its range of 10 meters is not very high.

The JBL Connect feature allows you to connect multiple speakers together. You also have a stereo mode if you connect 2 speakers together.

Pros

  • Solid design
  • High quality sound even at high volume
  • Option to connect several Flip 3’s together
  • Can take calls through the speaker
  • Good autonomy of 10 hours

Cons

  • Micro Usb port: manipulate with caution!
  • Limited Bluetooth range
  • Can’t skip tracks directly from the speaker
  • Only splashproof, not waterproof

Verdict

The Flip 3 is a real improvement from the Flip 2, offering a sound of very good quality and a solid and durable design. We just regret that it is not completely waterproof, and has a quite limited Bluetooth range. But given its performance, we found that it has a very good price/quality ratio.

    I think this one could be quite a popular seller this xmas especially with some of it’s appealing features.

    The size and sound of this device would be appealing and the fact that it is splash proof makes it a step above it’s competitiors.
