Be sure to check out the JBL Flip 3 Bluetooth Speaker…
The JBL Flip 3 Bluetooth Speaker sports a durable, splash-proof fabric and is available in 8 vibrant colors. If you’ve read our other reviews, you know we are big fans of JBL. This is one of the bluetooth speakers I actually own myself. Although there may be better speakers if price is of no concern, I think this is one of the best pound for pound portable bluetooth speakers. JBL has had a lot of success delivering above average quality but coming in much cheaper than its competitors.
For a good comparison, I have had this speaker side by side the Bose SoundLink Color. Although there is about a $35 difference (the Bose being more expensive), you almost couldn’t tell any difference in sound. Now in all honesty, I believe you start to notice a slight difference once you try to max out the volume. Bose has always been able to maintain crystal clear quality even at max volume, but JBL will begin to degrade very slightly. Don’t let this scare you away though, because you can barely notice this and you will almost never want to max out the volume. One of the benefits I liked about this over the Bose Color, is the power of the bass. JBL is the winner in this category.
In addition to the strong bass, if you’re looking for something more weather-resistant and sporty, the JBL Flip 3 is the way to go. As we mentioned, this comes in a wide variety of vibrant colors and has a very trendy, yet simple, casing with exposed speakers on its sides, but rubber ends for protection.
