Hi Beautiful People,
Do you ever feel like you never can get great sound from your mobile phone or from your tablet?
It is like you can hear the music; but either it is not loud enough or the bass is not clear. I have had a blue tooth speaker that would give pretty good sound; but if the bass was rocking the speaker would vibrate so much that it fell off the table. If I was in mid workout mode, I would have to stop to pick it up off the floor.
What can you do to have great sound at a reasonable price?
If you are looking for an economically-priced speaker with all the qualities of good sound that feels the room the JBL Flip 3 Bluetooth Splashproof Speaker hits the mark. The Speaker comes in a variety of colors, most of the choices are not available. Verizon Wireless allowed us to demo the the speaker for a month and to give a review on this blog. The speaker retails for $99.99 and is currently on sale for $79.99; and can be purchase on the Verizon website.
The JBL Flip 3 Bluetooth Splashproof Speaker
The speaker has clear sound no matter what the weather may be or if you are on land or get caught in the rain at a party.
“It is rubber on the outside of the speaker and has a rechargeable Li-ion battery that gives up to 10 hours of continuous play where you can dance the night away or enhance that barbecue picnic with the family. You can connect up to three smartphones and tablets at once.”
The sound is not muffled, I can hold the JBL Flip 3 in my hand and it never skips a beat in the sound quality. I really enjoy connecting my laptop or cell phone to the speaker to do my run/ dance workout.
Bluetooth compatibility for your computer, your smart phone or your tablet. With your computer, the speaker will connect through the Bluetooth option on the system preferences. For your smart phone or tablet, you need to download the app; and from there it syncs pretty quickly for the first time. And then after it quite easy to get and connected.
“No need to worry about rain or spills. It can even be cleaned with running tap water – just don’t submerge it.” It has rained in my neck of the woods for a week so the benefit of being waterproof if you get caught in the rain is very handy.
JBL Speaker Connections
You can actually connect JBL speakers together for a more fuller musical experience in a room or outside. I have never seen where speakers could connect with each other to play the same music at once.
You can take calls
The JBL Flip 3 has a speaker phone so you take your calls if you are doing work around the house or want to be hands free.
From the Verizon website:
“The next generation in the JBL Flip series, the Flip 3 adds a splashproof design* (IPX5-rated), a rugged rubber housing and a 3,000mAh rechargeable Li-ion battery that delivers up to 10 hours of continuous high-quality stereo audio playtime**.”
Highly flexible, the Flip 3 also lets you connect to up to three smartphones or tablets at once and then take turns playing audio from the device of your choice. An on-board speakerphone functionality with an echo and noise-canceling microphone lets you take crystal-clear, hands-free calls right from the speaker.
Video not playing all the way through
I noticed that when I try to listen to videos on the iPad, the JBL Flip3 Speakerphone will play the audio. However, the video will often freeze. I don’t know if that’s just the way it is or if there is some glitch because the freezing happened each time I tried to play a video. I was trying to listen Casey Treat’s Renewing the Mind 2.0 video series on his app on the iPad and encountered the video freeze. I tried a second time to watch Kari Jobe’s Forever video and it froze on me but the audio was still going strong.
What’s in the Box
One JBL Flip 3 speaker, a micro USB charging cable, one quick start guide, a safety sheet and a warranty card.
If you are looking for a good reasonably priced speaker; than you may want to consider the JBL Flip 3. At less than $100, you are getting quality sound and a portable speaker that can be taken on the go with you.
