Why the JBL Flip 5 is the perfect portable speaker

Take your tunes anywhere with this powerful and lightweight speaker...

26 Sep 2019

The new Flip 5 is a portable speaker that can go anywhere with you. It wirelessly connects to your smartphone or speaker with Bluetooth, and it’s light and rugged enough to be taken on most outdoor adventures. Interested? Here are a few more good reasons why the Flip 5’s such a perfect portable speaker.


Sounds better than ever

The Flip 5 pumps out booming bass at a powerful volume, with the new large battery providing all the power needed.

It’s not all about that bass either, with vocals and higher end instrumentation also standing out clearly. This makes the JBL Flip 5 a perfect speaker for podcasts and radio shows, as well as all different types of music. From heavy dance tracks to mellow acoustic numbers, the Flip 5 makes everything sound exactly as it’s supposed to be heard.


Party on in all weathers

Don't worry about running out of power half-way through the party, because with a bigger battery the JBL Flip 5 now gives you more than 12 hours of quality play-time.

And when the party does wind down and the music’s over, you can fully recharge the Flip 5 from flat in as little as 2 and a half hours. The charging port’s been updated to USB Type-C, which makes it so speedy. Another big advantage is that you no longer have to close any little rubber tabs or flaps to keep the speaker dry – the USB Type-C charging port is already water-resistant.


Make a splash

Like we’ve already said, the Flip 5 is wonderfully water-resistant. It’s IPX7 rating means it can handle being submerged in up to three feet of water, so if a sudden downpour hits your party you can keep on going. It’s only rain, after all.

Give your BBQ a boost

Pump up your next garden BBQ with JBL’s PartyBoost feature. It lets you link two PartyBoost-compatible speakers together, and you can then split the sound into left and right channels for a stunning stereo effect. Press play, and suddenly everything sounds bigger! 


Hang tough

The Flip 5 is a rugged little speaker, with durable fabric material and rugged rubber housing designed for adventure. So, if you’re the type that likes going on a trek with your favourite tunes to company, slip it onto your wrist and get going.
