JBL Flip 3 review: A top portable Bluetooth speaker for the money

 

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.

Very disappointed.....

 

I replaced my Flip with a Flip 3. My Flip was such a great speaker and lasted a very long time! Unfortunately not the same with the 3. The 3 quit after owning for a very short time, no longer will charge and when I can finally get it to work being...

Fantastic Little Speaker – Exceeded My Expectations

 

I picked up my JBL Flip 3 in Blue from Officeworks for $96. I must say I did not expect how good this little speaker is. The bass it can generate is very impressive. It's a great size - Not pocket sized but will fit easily in a small bag. You can sit...

Great sound, but has inherent problems...

 

I have had two JBL Flip 3 speakers in under 2 years, both of which became faulty (through no fault of my own). In the first instance one of the speakers in the unit stopped working after 6 months, which I was given a replacement under warranty. The...

Packs a punch for the size

 

I was originally sceptical on how good a portable bluetooth speaker could actually sound. After purchasing it I am pretty amazed on how good the sound actually is, and how loud you can turn it up. So far I have streamed from my imac all around the...

Best Thing Ever

 

Literally - my wife got me this as a gift and it's amazing. I can't imagine going to the beach without one now. it says it's "splash proof" but i've completely dropped it in the pool and it was fine - probably shouldn't leave it submerged though? Not...

Better than the rest!

 

I've tried a fair few of these wireless speakers and this one is miles ahead of the rest. Not only sound quality and bass but the brilliant feature that let's you connect them together!!! By far the best unit available in its price range.

Best budget portable speakers by far

 

t auto pairs with the speaker, no fiddling to swap output (if you set it to remember the speakers). Battery life is good, it'll run all day (spec says 10 hrs). You can control the volume on the speakers themselves, they remotely control the device...

Great Speaker in a small package

 

More than happy with the JBL Flip 3. Had a demo at JB HIFI Castle Towers by Jo who was super helpful pointing out the features. was on special at $99.00. Sound quality is amazing for such a small speaker. Very easy set up with my iPad with good...

Consumer review by: Callanish (productreview.com.au)

For $100, it's easily the best.

 

will withstand some bumps and knocks and has good grip - Bluetooth range is good (limit about 10-12m before crackling) - Battery life close to that on the box (nine hours - I suspect you might get slightly more if you use the aux port and not...
