JBL Flip 3 is rated 4.140096618357488 out of 5 by 207.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not user friendly Although a 20 something may enjoy this, the manual that comes with it is useless. There is no mention of how to charge the battery, so I am going to assume that it charges when connected to a computer, and that the 5 blue indicators show the charge level. Of course the manual mentions a power supply cord, but not in this box. The manual is useless, unless you are multi-lingual and have superhero vision. Here's an idea...Print the instructions in English and make the font bigger!!! I have no need for a manual printed in 15 languages. As far as the audio quality...It's not that great. It's on it's way back for a refund as I type.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Sound I am the type of person that will search for as much information as possible before making a decision on what would be the best value and meet my needs. I spent weeks researching portable, Bluetooth speakers that provide great sound and can withstand being used outdoors and in the end the JBL Flip 3 came out on top. I am extremely happy with the quality and sound and am thoroughly satisfied. I travel and like to have my music playing, whether on a cruise, island or hotel room so did not want something bulky or heavy and the Flip 3 is perfect for throwing in a carry-on. I can't say enough about the clarity and range of sound. Way to go JBL!.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't waist your time or money on the Flip 3 If you can find the Flip 1 or 2 buy one of those instead, I was so happy with the Flip 1 and 2 that I bought everyone that is close to me one as gift. Never a single issue or problem. The Flip 3 on the other hand is truly the worst to date. Doesn't hold a charge, constantly turns off, doesn't work when directly plugged into a wall outlet, when the battery is low the sound gets so distorted that you have to turn it off. I'm so frustrated and disappointed with the Flip 3 that I had to write this review especially after seeing my friends Flip 3 doing exactly he same thing mine was doing. If you wanna go through what I've been going through buy one.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flip 3 For Me The flip 3 have been very useful and fun experience every time I use it. Far as the color selection the range was awesome to choose from. My main focus was to use it at the gym while training kids and myself in basketball, but now I use it at home or meetings and group projects that require some sports of entertainments or audio for video presentations. The feature are very easy to use and you don't need to be a gadget freak in order to operate the speakers. I really would like to often try more products such as headphones or maybe be an influencer to the brand to expose athletes such as myself. Once gain sweet job and thank you!

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 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 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!

I can no longer charge my flip3 as all the pins in the USB port appear squashed. There is no plastic encasement around the pins to hold them in place, just the bare metal pins.  Any suggestions?

Asked by: Wdmcjrd
The FLIP 3 is a self contained unit and is not user serviceable, which means that only authorized service centers/factory technicians can open the unit. Try using a different charging cable and try alternating where you are charging the FLIP 3 (i.e wall outlet, USB ports on laptops/computer) to see if it makes any difference. If this doesn't help, please submit a request at www.jbl.com/contactus for information regarding warranty options.

Can the JBL- Flip 3 play music from a USB Flash Drive?

Asked by: Peggy
The FLIP 3 has only a micro USB port, only to be used for charging the speaker. So no, you cannot play music from a USB Flash Drive.

it will be affected by the steam when taking a shower?

Asked by: Moshi
Thank you for the inquiry. Yes, quite possibly the steam and contents of what the steam is carrying may cause mildew build up. However the speaker can be washed under clean running water. It can be used in the shower, but it is not recommended. Best Regards.
