JBL Flip 3 review: specs and price

Multiple device connectivity, a waterproof and slash-proof design, plus a battery that’ll last for up to ten hours of continuous play all make the JBL Flip 3 one of the best portable Bluetooth speakers for music lovers everywhere. 

Connect up to three devices to the speaker at once to take turns playing songs from each of you and your friends’ playlists. The speaker is so discreet that you can carry it just about anywhere; it only measures 7.5 x 4.5 x 3.9 inches.

Interested in building an at-home or portable stereo system? The Flip 3 allows for connectivity across other JBL devices so that you can enjoy a more immersive listening experience. You can even answer calls on the speaker; the built-in noise and echo-canceling features allow for crystal-clear audio.
