The past few weeks, we had been cooped up at home due to the haze. This does not mean we cannot have a good time in our abode. With the new JBL Flip 3, you could have a party any where any time!
JBL Flip 3 is the latest wireless speaker in the award winning Flip series. We had been fans of JBL and had their JBL Charge 2 . Thanks to JBL, we had a chance to see how the little brethren performs. So get ready to boogie with the beat!
This little pocket party is a comprehensive portable Bluetooth speakers that promises a room filling sound anyway. Unlike portable speakers of the past, this little beast is powered by a 3000mAH rechargeable Li-On battery that offers 10 hours of continuous play, giving a whole new meaning to dance till you drop.
The lightweight JBL Flip 3 comes in 7 different colours (Black, grey, blue,red, orange , teal and pink). For the record, the one featured here is teal.
Other notable features includes a speaker phone connectivity and a line in for music devices. Bluetooth 4.1 connectivity is a whopping 10 meters which gives you the flexibility to blast your music from multiple rooms. You can also link multiple JBL Connect speakers to give it a surround amplified sound effect , thereby expanding the range and giving you the possibility of having a bigger party anywhere.
The JBL Flip 3 is splash proof with a flap that securely covers the USB and audio inputs . This means you can bring this unit into a shower without worries. Don't soak it in the bathtub though as we can guarantee it will probably sink and stop working.
Use it flat or standing upright. We think the flat option is better as the bass would be a tad better.
The JBL Speakers comes with a lanyard that allows you to hand the speaker anywhere. In addition it comes with a USB Charger cable. There is no wall plug, so you would to rely on other wall plug to charge.
The unit cost price is at SGD179 and can be found in most major electronic retailers.

JBL Flip 3 vs JBL Charge 2
|JBL charge 2|
We had the JBL Charge 2 before the JBL Flip 3. Comparatively the JBL Charge 2 produces a louder and fuller sound given its bigger watt capacity. The JBL flip 3 does not come with JBL Charge 2 external charger option, but the former has additional JBL Connect Technology and splashproof features.
Coming in at 450 g vs the heavier 540g, the JBL Flip 3 will be our preferred travel companion. The smaller footprint also works in its favour.
Top 5 uses for JBL Flip 3
Why do you need the JBL Flip 3?
We give you 5 good reasons why this is a must have item in your electronic arsenal.
1) A travel companion
When you are traveling , a wireless speaker is a must. Not only does it provide you entertainment throughout the stay, but with internet streaming of local radio stations, it brings you a little bit of home with you. After all, not all countries provide English or Chinese radio stations with a decent playlist.
2) Use as a speaker phone
Sure your phone comes with the speaker option, but at times the volume can be quite underwhelming. The JBL Flip 3 comes with a noise and echo cancelling speaker phone that would make hands-free conversation a pleasure to make.
Needless to say , no more ' hello, hello, hello? '
3) A mini party anywhere
In your room, in the living room, the balcony, the kitchen, the storeroom. Party anywhere , anytime with the JBL Flip 3. Simply connect and on.
4) Bring it outdoors
Bring the JBL outdoor for the BBQ session in East Coast, the picnic at Marina Barrage or even the beach or pool. With its portability, it will be a good companion for all the outdoor excursions.
5) Use in the shower
Last but not least, bring it to the shower. With it's splash proof feature, it means a long lingering shower every time. Unwind and relax under the shower to your favourite tunes in the background without skipping a beat.
Either that or have your own karaoke session in the bathroom. We cannot guarantee the neighbours will not complain!
