Rated 2 out of 5 by from Why Party Boost If you already made customers buy into the connect plus why make the party boost, it already connects to multiple so why make party boost, you guys are loosing people with your decisions..I was looking into the flip 5 and you took away connect plus with a money scheme which is ....party boost, no aux, mono speaker,4.2 Bluetooth while phones have 5.0 like my S10+.. Don't make your old models look like a better version even with your latest release.. Please DO NOT DO THIS TO THE XTREME 3 PLEASE KEEP STEREO NO PARTY BOOST...or release a update to pair with plus and keep the AUX

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not impressed Have bought a total of 4 of JBL's flip speakers and a set of wireless headphones while the sound is good the fact is that they dont last very long they all stopped charging within 6 months and at 100 bucks a shot it's quite irritating to say the least my headphones quit charging in less than 3 months and were unreturnable so I was stuck with headphones that would show full charge only to be dead in less than 10 min. All of the flip speakers I purchased will show full charge and be dead in 15 min for the amount of money you pay for these things you would think they would last longer it's quite ridiculous!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound I bought myself 2 jbl flip 5's and they really sound amazing. I used them indoors and even outside when having a braai and they surprised me every time, as a single speaker and even in partyboost. Therefor my 5 star rating. However I must say. Playing at 70 to 80% volume constantly made the battery last only 5 hours which is not to good for me. And even when playing 30 to 50% volume it wouldnt even last 12hrs as advertised.(your site shows more than 12hrs). And when playing in partyboost the speaker connected to your phone runs flat quicker than the other that's only connected to the main speaker. I love this speaker and will recommend it to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Speaker This is my second JBL speaker I bought the flip 4 on Amazon and it broke but I am pretty sure I got ripped off the product wasn’t fake or anything it was just used and wasn’t new but the flip 4 I was already surprised by its sound and how good it was when i saw the flip 5 come out I had to buy it and I am glad I did the sounds is very crisp considerably better bass than the flip 4. I did not have the chance to test the battery life on either one but the flip 4 battery life was already pretty good so the flip 5 must be better right. Also usb-c charging is faster than ever thank you JBL. Best portable speaker for 2019!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice sound Great sound from a little speaker ,to be so small this speaker does a good job at creating a decent sound stage ,it sounds even better if u connect 2 of them together and put them in different part of the room , the sound is amazing ,it’s ipx7 waterproof the battery life is decent ,I played it at a little over half volume for about 6 hours and it still has over half battery life left .This is a great compact speaker to carry in a back pact or use the strap and carry in your hand or even a jacket pocket

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It is a commendable product! JBL Bluetooth Speaker Box I opened it. Packed in a rigid box  This can prevent damage to the product. Sponge inside the box The product is wrapped well. Prevent product damage on the go. The components are simple. Speaker body, manual, charging cab le The buttons are intuitively laid out It is convenient to use. Most of all, the FLIP5 has a clear charge indicator, and the part connecting the charger is external. There is a waterproof function Regardless of location or weather I can listen to music. JBL Bluetooth speaker for excellent grip Amazingly powerful sound JBL FLIP Bluetooth speakers let you listen to music in clear sound no matter where you are. Very satisfied “FLIP5” Bluetooth speaker!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow! Just wow! I was never impressed by many of the portable blue tooth speakers I've had the opportunity to utilize. After being gifted the JBL Flip 5 my opinion has changed forever. The clarity of this little speaker makes me wonder how they got all my favorite recording artists together inside one powerful sound machine. The deep bass is bone tingling. Not to mention the mid range and highs which make the tonal quality of this speaker unsurpassed. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone with a discerning ear and an empty pocket to carry it in. And the cost is utterly amazing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great speaker The JBL Flips has always been a wonderful budget speaker if you don't wanna spend the big bucks on other speakers. The only down fall to the Flips, they do not float. They sink very fast if not tied to something. So if you plan on kayaking or any sort like that. Tie it up, I assumed they floated cause of them being completely waterproof. Well I lost that $100 speaker on a kayaking trip. JBL, it would absolutely be a killer if you could possibly make the JBL float on it's on. Other than that, the Flip is a wonderful speaker.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't buy the inter-connectivity hype... I have a Charge 4 that sounds great and works well--I wasted an entire day today going back and forth to stores, buying and returning other JBL speaker models including this one because they're so unclear about how their devices interconnect. Apparently the Flip 4 would have connected with my Charge 4, but the 5 no longer can. What I've learned the very hard way today is that the Charge 4 connects via "Connect+", the Flip 5 connects via "Party Boost", and the Link 10 only connects via Chromecast--but supposedly the Flip 4 would also use Connect+. At this point however, I'm so fed up I don't plan on buying it to test it. Long story short--unless you're going to connect more than one of the same EXACT speaker, don't hold your breath.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Returned! I love JBL products but this is the second time I've returned a Bluetooth speaker! I purchased a Flip 5 since I usually like to stay up with the current generation and sell off my last gen product. Well this time around I'm not upgrading! Why you ask? Because as an owner of the JBL Flip 4, Charge 3 and Pulse 3 I was extremely disappointed to find that YET AGAIN JBL has changed their pairing software. So now I have hundreds of dollars worth of BT speakers that I can't pair together and play in sync. I learned my lesson the second time around. First disappointment was the Charge 4. It has Better base for for sure, but it's sound was "compressed" compared to my Charge 3. So I returned the Charge 4 and purchased another Charge 3. Now the Flip 5 has a similar "compressed" audio profile but with better base. Either way like the Charge 4 the Flip 5 doesn't sound as good as its previous model. Then add the blunder that is party boost and we have a total failure in my opinion. Oh and they also took away the speakerphone function. Why oh why are you stripping features and parts from your new products JBL? not cool!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No aux jack The 1/8" aux jack is key to having the speaker work with lots of other devices new and old, especially when bluetooth is not working right. Dropping the aux jack in Flip 5 was a huge mistake.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't work with JBL Connect+ My wife purchased this speaker on Amazon. At first we were pleased with its performance on our lake trip, however, the change in the multi-speaker connection technology ruined outdoor family movie night. We were unable to connect our speaker to our family member's JBL xtreme 2. Half the family left early because they were unable to hear. Our family and friends are heavily invested in JBL speakers. I cannot think of a more conumer unfriendly decision. Save yourself some money and go with the Flip 4 or better yet go with a different company that doesn't support backwards compatibility.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful Bass-Heavy Sound I purchased this within the last couple of weeks. So far so good. It is much louder than my Bose Soundlink Color 2s that I have. The sound goes out in all directions, which is a nice feature that in my opinion should be standard for all portable Bluetooth speakers. It handles my heavy (and I mean heavy) metal music with ease. And yet it’ll also play the clearest melodies with crisp, clear sound. I love the camouflage color that I got; something about the pattern just spoke to me. I haven’t given the battery the full test (aka, letting it drain all the way down), but it seems to hold a charge plenty long, at least for my listening needs. Of course the waterproof and dustproof factors are an added bonus. I am quite happy with this speaker. I just hope nothing breaks down on me!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound and perfect size I previously purchased a JBL Charge 4, which is an awesome speaker as well, but wanted something a little smaller. Was going to buy the Flip 4, but waited for the Flip 5 due to it having USB C charging. We use this speaker all the time while cooking in the kitchen or grilling outside and it's perfect for traveling. You may be asking why not use the Charge 4 for these situations, but the Charge 4 is much louder at lower volumes and don't want to be that one disruptive neighbor that cranks their music too loud. The smaller size of the Flip 5 (compared to the Charge 4) also takes up less room in a backpack, which can be extremely helpful when packing for a trip. If hanging out with friends or somewhere that we can crank the volume or aren't concerned about space, it's definitely the Charge 4 over the Flip 5. The Flip 5 has great sound, looks good and has great battery life...plus has USB C charging. We have no complaints and would recommend to everyone. We were looking at other brands (spent a lot of time playing the demos set-up at various stores), but think JBL had the best mix of sound and features especially for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Sound and Customization is Crazy Cool I had a friend bring one of these on a trip, an earlier version of the Flip. When it was cranked up it filled a really large room, I looked for the sound system...ha. I got one customized and it turned out really nice, great job JBL.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Speaker - Slight improvements From Flip 4 I had the JBL Flip 4 which was very solid, and then sold it for the Flip 5. This speaker has slightly more bass and a little bit more of a low/mid range than the Flip 4. I compared the two side by side and you could tell the sound was a bit more distinct, the Flip 4 sounding more tin can like. Not a huge difference. I do miss the triple click on the play button to replay the song or skip to previous track. This seems to only have the skip feature with the double press.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Battery life sucks for what I use it for I do dishes & yes the speaker is great & the sound quality & volume is decent. But I’m giving it a one star Bc it’s definitely not reliable like what’s the point of having speaker of it can’t even last shift. I can’t sign into my account to send it back which sucks. I’m pretty disappointed & upset. I tried resetting my password & everything & it says it doesn’t recognize it. Well how are you guys able to send me emails, but you don’t recognize my email for me to even reset a password. That’s confusing & annoying.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This speaker sounds amazing! I love the personalized aspect of the speaker. We used a precious family photo that brings us great joy every time we see it. There is a problem with the speaker cutting in and out at times. I have to shut down all of the permissions in the apps so they don't interfere with the phone doing phone things. I have to make sure it's only being used as a speaker. Also, wifi in my location is always dicy sometimes I need to run the phone on the data link. Overall, I love the stunning bass response and great quality of the sound. Still glad I got it even though I have trouble with it at times. It could be just related to where I live.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Bought this for my daughters uni-days, so needed to be space saving, easy to use, enough battery life to be able to take anywhere without being plugged in and water proof for those nights out. Material and build quality are good, sound is rich with ample volume for something so small. Heavy enough to stop it rolling around and can be linked with others to make sure all areas are covered, just need to make sure you know which one is yours. Not the cheapest, but well worth the little extra for the quality and sound of this awesome portable speaker.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from JUST HEAR ME OUT... I purchased the JBL Flip 5 from a authorized dealer a week ago and the music is fantastic in every aspect of the sounds produced.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Personalization is a must! I am sooooo happy with this speaker. The sound is great! Beach approved. The personalization was perfect. I was worried the image would be pixelated but it really looks exactly as it appeared on the website as I was uploading my custom artwork. The battery life is pretty decent. That’s mostly why I didn’t give it 5 stars!!! It’s a good battery life but it’s definitely not the best out in the market right now. Aside from that it’s a great gift or purchase for yourself. I would buy again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow!!! I have 2 JBL speakers. I have the clip 4 that I use at work and now the flip 5 for at home. I use it to listen to music and podcasts. It sounds incredible and gets quite loud! Build quality is fantastic. I got this for $60 on clearance at Walmart in the green camo color. I love everything about it and have nothing negative to say. All my speakers have great battery life that lasts longer than advertised. I don't play my speakers at full volume though instead around 50%. The flip 5 has great sound in a small package. I'm looking forward to taking it to the beach. I got my husband a personalized go 3 speaker to use at work and he loves it. Definitely worth the money!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from JBL CLIP 5 The sound quality of this speaker is absolutely second to none. I use it in the shower, when walking with my six month old in the pram, sorting the house and kids, out in the garden. I love it. It’s brilliant to just have an impromptu boogie with my wife and kids. I’m a musician and this is not simply a speaker, this beautiful thing is an instrument in itself. Thank you JBL, music is a massive part of my life and you have added a vital means of adding this vital part of my life to my home. I love it. Thank you! The only thing is when listening to audiobooks the bass can drown out male readers a little bit but that’s it!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from NO PARTYBOOST W JBL FLIP 4 I just bought this speaker with the excitement that my sister and I could pair our speakers with the partyboost feature. She has a JBL Flip 4 and JBL made it so the flip 5 won’t pair with the flip 4 which is absolutely ridiculous. How can they expect for everyone to have the exact same model of speaker. They shouldn’t even bother including that feature if they’re going to be so particular on what devices it can connect to. My sister’s flip 4 is only about a year and a half old and JBL made it so that speaker is already too outdated to pair with the next generation speaker.
Date published: 2020-04-30
Rated 2 out of 5 by from I thought if I paid more this would last longer I bought a Flip 4 a couple years ago after I got tired of spending $money on cheap speakers that quit charging after a couple months. I have been extremely careful with this Flip and really only use it maybe once a week in my car. Love the quality of sound, plenty loud enough for me, was very happy with my purchase (direct from JBL, looked like there were some expensive fakes on Amazon). Welp, now fully charged it plays 2 or 3 songs and shuts down. Every time. It won’t even stay on if it’s hooked to the charger while I play it. I am ambivalent about how long it lasted compared to the cheap ones, I think it’s a toss up what’s the best use of my money. Disappointed with JBL to put out an inferior product like this.

To avoid signal interference, please note that Our Flip 5 has a maximum Bluetooth range of 10 - 15 meters, with no large objects blocking the line of sight. A distance farther than that would pose signal deterioration.

What kind of USB charger is required to charge the Flip5? Is it a 5V/3A one? How long does it need to be charged first time round?

Thanks for your question. You would have to get a 5V/3A charging adapter so your JBL Flip 5 could get a full charge within 2.5 to 3 hours. For first time charging, it should be okay as long as the speaker gets fully charged.

JBL Flip 5 has a single dynamic driver that provides more power/ volume than it's predecessor, Flip 4. RMS is the wattage or indicator that shows the volume the speaker is capable of outputting. We've worked on improving stable wireless connectivity with our Flip 5 via Bluetooth technology.

Can I add a passcode to my speaker to keep others from joining to it?

Asked by: JJ Sea
Our JBL Flip 5 doesn’t feature a Bluetooth profile password. However, other devices shouldn’t be able to pair unless the speaker is in pairing mode. It only connects to one source device at a time.

How many Smartphones/Tablets can connect wirelessly at the same time? The flip 4 could do 2 devices, does this also support multiple devices? I don't want to have to re-pair each time I switch back and forth from my phone and tablet.

Asked by: P51SN95
Hi there, the JBL Flip 5's Bluetooth connectivity is the same as the JBL Flip 4. It can connect 2 devices at the same time but can only play 1 device at a time. For more information, please submit a case request so we can assist you: https://support.jbl.com/us/en/customer-service/contact.html

What is the bluetooth range of the Flip 5?
