JBL Flip 3 Review
If you have been in the market for a powerful Bluetooth speaker and haven’t had any luck so far, then the JBL Flip 3 would probably be a suitable choice for your entertainment needs. Its design is awesome as you can use it vertically or horizontally depending on the space you have at your place. Moreover, its splash proof meaning you can use it at the pool party and of course because it offers more sound than it looks. Moreover, you can use a couple of JBL Flip 3 Bluetooth speakers by connecting them wirelessly using the JBL Connect app which is absolutely free. In addition to this, it offers more than 8 hours of battery life which is just something that you would be looking for if you are an avid traveler. Except for adventure, you can use the JBL Flip 3 as a speakerphone for conference calls as well. However, the speaker tends to distort when playing some tracks on high volume. Other than that, the JBL Flip 3 is one of the best portable Bluetooth speakers on the market today considering its splash proof design and the extended battery life.
If you have been eyeing the JBL Charge 2+, which not so surpassingly costs more, then you can rest assured that it will give you something close to the output of the Charge 2+. Nevertheless, the Charge 2+ is a bit bulky and heavier as compared to the JBL Flip 3. However, it also produces better sound quality, offers more battery life and comes with a USB charging port for your smartphone. Of course these extra features influence our rating and therefore the JBL Flip 3 comes a bit behind. Nevertheless, when it comes to the overall value for money, the JBL Flip 3 takes home the gold medal. Furthermore, anyone looking for a portable Bluetooth speaker would prefer the more compact one and that’s where the JBL Flip 3 beats the Charge 2+.
After all is said, you will need to make a choice and going for the JBL Flip 3 isn’t one of the wrong ones. In fact it’s the best choice we have so far, if budget is also one of your main concerns. Bass lovers will also be amazed at how such a tiny speaker is capable of delivering the kind of quality only seen in bigger speakers.
The UE Roll also comes to mind when choosing a good outdoor Bluetooth speaker. However, it doesn’t have the kind of bass that the JBL Flip 3 offers, plus it lacks the speaker phone functionality. Fair enough, the Roll also has its extra features that would make you decide otherwise such as a better app with an EQ and an alarm. Moreover, it’s more rugged and created for the outdoor scene than the JBL Flip 3. I can admit that it also looks better aesthetically but if bass, speakerphone function, good quality sound and price matter more, then the JBL Flip 3 is the perfect choice for your entertainment.
