Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice sound, with tiny annoying things First of all.. sound is really great for such speaker. Microphone is also very good. Veri solid mobile speaker. I use it to watch series from iPad, having conference calls with phone or computer and listening Spotify while travelling. Only thing that is annoying is the ON and OFF sounds, which are really loud and I haven't found an option to turn it off. Specially annoying if you would like to turn off your speaker silently if people around you are sleeping. It would be perfect if you could configure ON/OFF sounds from the mobile app. I would also love to adjust equalizer from the mobile app for some apps the bass is too deep.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Bass for a small and cheap speaker I bought this around 2 months ago at $120 Canadian and I am very happy with this speaker. It performs great indoors and outdoors and offers very deep and rich bass which does not overpower the mids and highs if there are vocals in the song. The design is very nice as it is one of the only speakers which you can actually see the sub woofers move a lot and it is also splash proof which adds why it is so great for all environments. The only not so great thing is that when it is played at max volume I find that there are some distortions in the lower frequencies, but most speakers around this price range or even higher such as the UE Boom have this problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Bluetooth speaker I've had I am in love with the Flip 3. It's cheaper than many of its competitors and has fantastic sound quality, especially at high volume. Everybody is astonished at how awesome the high volume sound quality is. I work in construction and use it at work almost every day. The splash proof and dust proof design is particularly useful as well! I read an earlier review about the hissing/crackling noise and I can relate. It was fine for the first few weeks I owned it, but after a lot of high volume activity on it, it started hissing/crackling on low volume. It's a little bit of an inconvenience but I still give it a solid 5 stars!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product and amazing sound I bought this product around 3 weeks ago and the sound and features are great. Just a shame the customer service doesn't match. There wasn't a charging lead in the box when I opened it so phoned customer support. They gave me the part number so I could deal with the parts/ service department. Phoned them but weren't very helpful, took details again and still no return call or charging lead. VERY POOR SERVICE FROM JBL!!!!!!!!. They must have stacks of these they could just pop in the post!!!!!!!!@!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic speaker/speakerphone for travel. I was looking for a small bluetooth speaker to use for both music and conference calls while traveling. I have a JBL Horizon and love the sound from it, so I thought I would give the JBL portable speakers a chance. I was torn between the Charge2+ and the Flip3. I liked the added features of the Charge 2+, but I preferred the smaller size of the Flip3. I was expecting good sound, but I was blown away by the volume and quality. I have not used it for a phone call yet, but I do not expect any issues. I do not have a need (yet?) to connect multiple units, but I may buy another one just to have it handy for parties or outside listening.

Product Q&A

There is no wall plug only the micro cable !  Was this a mistake? 

Asked by: GareBear
Per the spec sheet, it only comes with a USB - Micro USB cable. That is all I received. I just use an old Blackberry charger to charge via an outlet.

Can I limit Bluetooth pairing to only one device? I don't want other people to pair with my Flip 3 and stop my music. I want Flip 3 to restrict Bluetooth pairing after one device is connected.

Asked by: isleofgod
You have to allow them to connect by pushing the Bluetooth button on your jbl product

Any tips on how to get it to sinc? There are no instructions, no trouble shooting tips, nothing. :-( I've been trying and Googling for info for 2 days.

Asked by: Sunnidaze
1- pair your audio device with only one Flip3. 2- localize the connect button on both Flip3 (button between the power button and the LEDs that shows battery level) 3- Press both buttons simultaneously (don't need to hold down the buttons; simple press/release).

My Flip 3 has been cutting out recently, like while I'm listening to music the sound cuts out and then comes back a few seconds later. Is there any way to fix it? I thought maybe the battery could be low, but I fully charged it and it was still happening.

Sounds like your notifications are turned on the smartphone. When I use my bluetooth I disable the notifications. The phone will still ring but you won't get the audio drop when you receive a notification.

Hello, For the flip3, I have seen that multiple device can connect on the flip by BT.The problem is that I would like to lock the Bluetooth only to 1 Device.Is that possible ? I don't want anybody to link his mobile to my Speaker when I'm using it.Tx

Asked by: Lost
Don't you have to pair with it first by physically pressing the BT button

when I play music on the flip from my android phone if my wife gets a text on her iphone it stops my music. the same happens if she plays music and I even log into my phone... the only way to fix it is for one of us to turn off bluetooth. HUGE ISSUE... 

Asked by: donandandi
Thank you for the inquiry. Please disconnect/unpair all source devices. Clear the phone bluetooth cache. Perform a reset of the speaker. Reconnect and test. Best Regards. In power ON mode press and hold the "Volume +" and "Phone" buttons at the same time for more than 3 seconds -> Unit will power Off by itself. Now the unit is reset to factory default
