JBL Flip 3 is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 510.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound for the size and price Overall the speaker is great! I've owned the JBL flip 3 speaker for about 6 months short of 2 years, and I've have bene pleased with this speaker in every aspect important to me when purchasing a new device. I conceder myself a bit of a audiophile but I have reasonable expectations for a BT portable speakers, especially a device this size. Considering the physical limitations due to size and in how well a device can represent a frequency of sound that is being replicated bass is full, rich and has a slight "Thump", which I find for the size of the speakers to be satisfying. Treble or highs are clear and crisp but as most modern speakers the mid-range is excellent to exceptional, as expected with JBL. Best volume is about midway. the higher the volume, the lower the bass. The lower frequencies can't be 'heard' as well but the speaker still sounds great at full volume (iPhone). Pros: Sound quality, battery life*, durability, quality Cons: Audio is not playable though USB (or I couldn't figure it out), The"tubelure" design makes it easy to roll, not the best for use on a boat but fits well in most cup holders ) *the battery life is NOT 10 hours, at least at full volume. The speaker lasted a 3-6 (??) hours when it was new but the battery life is about 10 minutes (2 songs) until the power indicator hits red, the sounds starts clipping and the LEDs start dimming with bass hits... which is the reason I visited the manufacturers site; I attempted to upgrade the firmware, as I feel the battery should have lasted longer but I am still seeing the same symptoms. A quick google search brought me to a youtube video on how to replace the battery and a link to buy a new batt for about $25 USD. After all the abuse, getting wet (never fully submersed), dropped, and with the initial cost, I think it is worth attempting to repair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unbelievable great sound from this little thing I cannot believe the bass and treble this little produces in my open floor plan home. I place it anywhere in my house, and it sounds like theater quality. I cannot believe how great the acoustics echo's in my home. I use it as my entertainment sound bar. I was going to purchase a top of the line sound bar for my 75" inch TV, but forget it. I love this thing. I can place it anywhere I want to get the best sound for what I need it for. Either watching a movie, or playing club music, I love this thing. I may buy a second one to enhance my vibration when watching action movies, but I haven't been inclined too, since this one by itself performs so well!!!

Will new firmware be pushed to the Flip3 to provide Connect+ functionality? If so, when is the estimated release? I recently bought a Flip4, and would love to connect it to my existing Flip3 speakers. Thanks for the great products - keep it up!

Asked by: Steveeee
We don't have an exact release date yet for the firmware upgrade. Once it rolls out, it will only apply to JBL Xtreme and Charge 3 to get JBL Connect+.

My Flip 3 USB charging cord's pins broke off inside the micro usb port of my Flip 3 speaker that I bought from Target less than a month ago. I'm not finding any information on how to replace the cord or what cord is compatible. Can you assist me?

Asked by: DCMarcel
The FLIP 3 uses a standard USB micro cable. Our JBL portable speaker's power source, except for FLIP 1, is designed to make use of most standard micro USB cord of mobile devices like Android phones. I noticed that you're in Maryland. If you would like to replace the cord that came with it, please contact the store where you purchased the unit and they will be able to help.

Will a Flip 3 connect with a Flip 4? One has "Connect" and the other has "Connect +". Is there a difference? Thanks

Asked by: Whoisjabes
No, they are not compatible. FLIP 3 has a JBL connect feature that can link to another speaker that has the same feature. While FLIP 4 has JBL connect + feature that can link up 100 plus speakers that has the same feature.

I am attempting to connect my Deskto PC via bluetooth to my JBL flip. It had worked well for about 6 months but now it no longer connects. I receive the message "Adding the device failed resulting in an unknown error. The reported error code is 0x80004005

Asked by: jhcolsOH
I have checked the error code and it is related to your PC. You might need to update or reinstall the Bluetooth driver. You may contact your OS support for further assistance on this.

How can I tell if Flip 3 is charging. Is it turned off when charging?

Asked by: peri
The FLIP 3’s battery light indicators on the bottom part would provide you an idea if the speaker is fully charged. While charging, the light indicators would turn on and blink one after the other, showing you the level of charge the speaker has. When fully charged, all light indicators would go off.

Hi, I bought Flip 3, connected it to my laptop. The speakers work just fine, so I can play audio files and hear them through the Flip3 device. However the microphone doesn't work (it does work when connected to my iphone). Any suggestion?

Asked by: AC3981
Same issue here. I also bought it only to use hands-free mode. I tried to make JBL Flip 3 works in hands-free (speaker+mic) mode, with no success. I tried on different laptopS and workstationS with Windows 10, Windows 8.1, Windows 7, Linux (Ubuntu 16.04) - only works on Ubuntu, but I need that works on Windows to use Hangouts (also tried to change Hangouts settings, no success). I also did every step Joe G. says, nothing changed. I tried to make a factory reset and upgrade the JBL firmware too, both of them failed. JBL Flip 3 works very well with cellphones. why this problem happens on Windows?! Can someone help us? Thanks!

I purchased a Flip3 and am finding the print in the books too small to read. Can you please advise how to set it up. Also does it come fully charged or do I need to charge it?

Asked by: BarbB
The FLIP 3 comes with a factory charge which can be used out of the box. By default once the speaker is turned ON the first time, it will go in pairing mode. So you can pair it immediately to your Bluetooth enabled device. If you want to pair another device. 1.Turn ON both the source device’s (phone, tablet, laptop) Bluetooth and FLIP 3 Bluetooth feature. 2.On your Source’s Bluetooth settings, press scan or search and look for the device, by default it is named FLIP 3. 3.Once you locate the name of the device FLIP 3 click the name and will automatically connect/pair with your source device. 4.Play music using your source (phone, laptop)
