JBL Flip 3 review: specs and price

Multiple device connectivity, a waterproof and slash-proof design, plus a battery that’ll last for up to ten hours of continuous play all make the JBL Flip 3 one of the best portable Bluetooth speakers for music lovers everywhere. 

Connect up to three devices to the speaker at once to take turns playing songs from each of you and your friends’ playlists. The speaker is so discreet that you can carry it just about anywhere; it only measures 7.5 x 4.5 x 3.9 inches.

Interested in building an at-home or portable stereo system? The Flip 3 allows for connectivity across other JBL devices so that you can enjoy a more immersive listening experience. You can even answer calls on the speaker; the built-in noise and echo-canceling features allow for crystal-clear audio.

A speaker driver is an individual transducer that converts electrical energy to sound waves. More drivers may result in better sound quality.
There is a control panel on the device body, so you can easily access the volume control or remote without having to interact with a cable or another device it's connected to.
The device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures caused by dust, raindrops, and water splashes.
The driver unit is the component that produces sound in the device. Bigger drivers are more powerful and can produce better bass.
When covered under the manufacturer’s warranty it is possible to get a replacement in the case of a malfunction.

Sound quality

Devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better experience.
The lowest frequency at which the device produces audio. The lower the low-frequency response, the stronger and juicier the bass.
A passive radiator is a type of driver (speaker) that doesn't have a voice coil and a magnet. The sound vibrations produced by a passive radiator depend on its mass and the size of its enclosure. It is usually used in combination with a woofer to produce deep bass tones.
Audio output power is based on the number of speakers and their power in watts. High audio output power results in loud, clear sounds.
The highest frequency at which device produces audio. The higher the high-frequency response, the clearer and crispier the treble.

The time it takes to fully charge the battery.
You can use the device with standard batteries instead of a power supply.
The battery is removable and can be replaced by the user if broken.

Connectivity

An auxiliary input allows you to play other audio sources by connecting them through a simple audio connection like a 3.5mm jack, i.e for MP3 or portable DVD/CD player.
Bluetooth is a wireless technology standard that allows data transfers between devices placed in close proximity, using short-wavelength, ultra-high frequency radio waves. Newer versions provide faster data transfers.
With more USB ports, you are able to connect more devices.
With a standard mini jack socket, you can use the device with most headphones.
Multipoint allows you to link to more Bluetooth devices and switch between them. For example you can easily switch calls from one device to another without having to manually disconnect and reconnect.

Features

Wireless devices allow users more freedom of movement.
This technology allows the users to use their smartphone as a remote control for the device.
You can use your voice to control key functions of the device and you can easily access your device without pushing any button.
With voice prompts, you will automatically receive information via audio messages – for instance, you may find out that the battery is running low, and it's time to recharge the device.
