JBL : Flip 3
Stylish and portable, the JBL Flip 3 is the sort of Bluetooth speaker you want to take with you everywhere. Boasting a range of colours provides it with an aesthetic allure that’ll undoubtedly attract the image-conscious while its lightweight and good-quality sound gives the user the freedom to take their music “on the go”.
Its size gives it an edge over competitors. Weighing just 450g and measuring 17cm in length, the Flip 3 has the mechanics to deliver commendable sound from a speaker that’s small in stature. It looks cool, is easy to carry around, and can get quite loud without overbearing distortion, all with the bonus of being able to fit discreetly in an overnight bag leaving plenty of room for extra socks.
It can keep going for up to 10 hours on its 3000mAh rechargeable Li-ion battery, a promise from the manufacturer that we can attest to. Like others on the market, the speaker is weather-proof so can withstand indoor or outdoor environments while its stereo sound is given an added boost by JBL Connect technology that wirelessly links multiple JBL Connect-enabled speakers together to amplify the listening experience. The built-in nose and echo cancelling speakerphone is also great for those wanting to use the speaker for conference calls.
