Is there a way to shut off or turn down the volume of the start up noise? I like to use this speaker in a office environment but I don't like how loud the start up noise is? Is there a fix for this?

Asked by: MQ32q
The so-called notification noise is objectionable and serves no useful purpose. It detracts from an otherwise nice product. You can tell easily from the light if the speaker is on or off. If I enter the room 30 seconds later, do I need another noise to tell me if the speaker is on or off? Maybe the designers who came up with this feature could make it sound continuously so we will always know it is on...

I have a Flip 3 and we love it.  Looking to add 1 or 2 more and connect together to expand the sound area on my patio.  Is the connect button on the 3 compatible with the new 4? or vice-versa? 

Asked by: 76BlueHen
No, they are not compatible. Only the JBL FLIP 4 and PULSE 3 when released can be paired wirelessly. The FLIP 4 has the JBL Connect+ while the FLIP 3 has JBL Connect. JBL Connect+ is only compatible with JBL Connect+ speakers and vice versa.

I'm using Flip 4 to playing guitar, using the 3.5mm line in. If I don't play a note for 5 seconds, it goes into a power save mode, at which point the next note I play is not audible while it "wakes up." Possible to extend this time/disable?

Asked by: hip_modernism
Hi all, I have the same problem. I have used OP-1 as well but any audio source prodces the same proble. Approx 5 seconds after audio drops below a certain level (TBD) the turns off the speaker drivers and requires another singal more than threshold (xxmV TBD) for approx seconds or so to enable the output. This means you cannot use this speaker to play any music, live or recorded, that has quiet portions. The "no signal" timeout setting should be made much much larger than 5 seconds and possibly reduce the level (as we all do not play hyper compressed music through these speakers). Approx 1minute timeout would be more sensible. One assumes this is a software issue. Can you update the firmware to change this timeout?

The flip 4 compared to the charge 3, what are some of the main differences, I don't know which one to buy, how loud and how good is the bass

Asked by: OGSxxGaming
I got these information from various YouTube reviews and here's a summary of them: Bass wise, The Flip 4's bass is impressive, it packs a punch but it's not as deep as the Charge 3's. Battery wise. The 6000mah of the Charge 3 is needed for it's big drivers, and to charge your gadgets. In a word, it gives the same battery life span as of the Flip 4, since the Flip 4 has smaller drivers, a 3000mah battery is all that it needs (It will still depend on volume level and music). Loudness wise, the Flip 4 is loud due to the emphasis of treble, but bass levels stay the same. Whereas the Charge 3 is best in max volume, the treble and bass are further emphasized. But in moderate volumes, like 50-75%, the Flip 4 sounds better since the Charge 3 sounds a bit muffled in these volume levels. If you only listen to electronica, heavy bass songs and so on, the Charge 3 is a better choice, but if you are more into Pop, Rock, EDM and so on, the Flip 4 is a better choice. Portability wise, the Charge 3 is a bit of a hassle to bring due to it's size, but unlike the Flip 4, it is much easier to put in your bag due to the small size. Both can be grasped easily by hand. Protection wise, both are IPX7 certified, but take note that the Flip 4 doesn't float unlike the Charge 3 (in my opinion is kinda weird...) so don't drop the Flip 4 in lakes, rivers, the ocean and so on or it'll be difficult to retrieve it. But for me, the Flip 4 is my choice. But it depends on your preferences. Hope this helps!

Will the flip 4 fit inside the flip 3 case?

Asked by: JeffL
No, the Flip 3 carrying case is too small. At the moment, no carrying case is available for Flip 4. We suggest that you check out manufacturers that specialize in this kind of accessory.

Can I lower the volume of 'connecting sound' and 'power on/off' ? I think they are way too loud.

Asked by: psy901
Unfortunately, the notification sound can't be adjusted. These are fixed feature settings which cannot be changed.

Do Charge 3 will be updatable by usb connection from my pc? If yes, The update will include also some treble boost or a better tuning, to make charge 3 less muffled? Thank you in advance
