JBL Flip 3 – A top-notch yet affordable portable Bluetooth Speaker
Today, portable speakers are growing in popularity. With over hundreds of brands to choose from, it can be tough to choose the right one. But there’s a particular brand that is sought after for their incredible Bluetooth speakers – JBL. With their Flip 3 model, you can expect a slew of great features that give more bang for your buck.
This cylinder-shaped speaker looks amazing. It stands at a mere 6.65 inches tall with a 2.51-inch width and weighs only 450 grams. That’s a little more than a smartphone. The JBL Flip 3 is incredibly portable and you can’t go anywhere without it. It’s no surprise then that the JBL Flip 3 is one of the most popular portable Bluetooth speakers in the Philippines.
Built to be tough
Built to be rugged with a durable exterior, the JBL Flip 3 can go where you go. Made to be splashproof (not to be submerged), the JBL Flip 3 is perfect for the poolside chillax time, hiking, or any other outdoor activity.
The exterior also boasts a nylon braided grill going around the speaker, strengthening the entire column. A braided cord also comes in handy to secure itself to your hand. Buttons for navigation and syncing are inconspicuously embedded into the grill so as not to obstruct handling. You have the Bluetooth pairing, volume up/down, and speakerphone buttons all arranged in a line.
Rich sound quality
The JBL Flip 3 produces a rich sound despite its size. If you compare this to a knockoff Bluetooth speaker, you can easily tell the difference, as the one from JBL delivers a much better mono and stereo output. It offers a powerful and loud sound that can provide an admirable bass around 80Hz and above.
When it comes to the mids and highs, they sound good. Regardless of the music you throw at it, the Bluetooth speaker will still sound good even if you crank up the volume, although jarring will occur if you play some tracks with heavy bass at high volumes.
Another reason why the JBL Flip 3 is amazingly attractive is the ability to pair via Bluetooth with other devices. Pairing your speaker with your smartphone, computer or any other device is so easy. You only need to press a button and wait. It’s not just Bluetooth pairing with other devices, you can also set up an entire sound system inclusive of other JBL speakers with the pairing button. Charging is also easy with the micro USB slot that connects via cable to any device.
Music suggestions & battery life
Battery life for the JBL Flip 3 is up to 10 hours of play time. This is a record time as most Bluetooth speakers fall short of the standard. The JBL Flip 3 gets pretty loud for its entry in the small speaker category. For most music tested, the JBL Flip 3 excels in quality with most genres of music, especially today’s pop, EDM, and casual listening of hip-hop music.
