Flip gets even better

from Gadget Guy

Impressive JBL Flip 5 – as are other JBL speakers. Loud, proud and great JBL sound – what more do you need. As it has improved on the Flip 4 it has to rate even better.

It’s a mid-level speaker and it’s reasonably lightweight which makes it portable and worth having on hand for travels or outdoor adventures. It looks good, it’s resistant to the knocks that general life will give it and most importantly it sounds great. The Flip 5 is an affordable option for portable sound that will last you a while and be a worthwhile investment at under $150AUD.

The sound quality is an improvement, which is fantastic, but with no AUX input, no built-in microphone, and only Bluetooth 4.2, one can’t help but feel a little underwhelmed with JBL’s latest offering.

A great balance of sound quality, portability, and price

Finding a reasonable balance between sound quality/volume and portability/ruggedness, the JBL Flip 5 is the quintessential jack of all trades, master of none. It's melodious enough that you're almost certainly going to enjoy listening to any type of music with it, but its listening experience is decidedly less refined than than those offered by the field-leading Bose models.

A portable speaker that sounds great with anything

At $99, the JBL Flip 5 proves the headphone and speaker giant is still reigning champ of the wireless speaker.  With its bassy sound, excellent build, and competitive price, the Flip 5 brooks no competition and remains a bulletproof value for anyone looking for solid sound on the go.
