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.

Can i talk on speaker to writing a text whit no problem?

Asked by: Procdla
There should not be any problem replying to a text message while you are talking to someone on the phone using the FLIP 3 since you can still navigate your phone while on a call. The audio might be cut out a bit when the text message comes in but after that, the audio will resume to normal.

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.
