JBL Flip 3 is rated 1.9 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Low Cost, Superior Sound I've had the Flip 3 for 3 months now and really enjoying it! Not only does the battery last several days (for a minimum of a 2-hour listening session), but the sound is fantastic. You get a really clear, crisp quality including the terrific bass. Would definitely recommend it to someone not looking to spend too much money but still hoping to maintain the excellent audio you'd find with higher cost devices.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Battery Defects I bought a JBL Flip 3 a little over 3 months ago. It works extremely well when it works. Just over 3 months old and about 2-3h use per week and the battery Charges fully then only lasts about 10min. I have attempted to Contact JBL via Email, Twitter and Facebook. with no response or help.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Sound button fell off Sound button disappeared in less than 2 months although I am using it with its original case. Not the quality I expected. I have many JBL speakers (Clips, TV Boost etc) this is the first time I am getting such a lemon.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from USB port breaks easily, Battery wont charge After just 3 months, the USB charging port breaks. The repair costs almost half the unit's price. After 2 months, it broke off again. Not only that, the battery is now bloated and won't keep a normal charge.

Asked by: Viktor

hi there, I purchased a jbl speaker for my daughter last year at musica. a few weeks ago it started giving us problems, the speaker still works but it has to be connected to the charger in order to continue playing even though it is fully charged.

Asked by: nikki erasmus

Please provide a reputable repair centre in Durban, South Africa that we can take the JBL flip unit in to be repaired. The USB port has collapsed and the unit cant be charged.
