Got it on sale at Harvey Norman, $98-NZD, 23/06/17. Previously priced between $129-179.
My first JBL (Harman, owned by Samsung) speaker, and I'm impressed.
It does sound clearer and crisper compared to the Klipsch Groove (slightly treble deficient), however distorts above 3/4 volume - the Klipsch does not (even at full volume). JBL are known for their 'live' sound - which some may find a bit bright.
This has now been superseded by the Flip 4 - hence the cheap price.
Enjoyed my few months now. Do their job well, but do not expect something grand. Turns audio from mobile phones easily, from TV easily, from the computer easily, but from real speakers are not around if you have reasonably good speakers. However Player sick loud for its size with okay base but they are not so that you will feel that your body is shaking. To parties at friends that do not have good speakers, this excellent, to the cottage excellent, to the mountain hut super, hotel party.
Was really in two minds about this or or Charge 3. Tested both simultaneously. More natural sound in charge 3 yes but questionable whether they are worth the extra money judgment, the difference is not great. Then neither do I charge 3 plays much higher that everyone wants to get the. Do you have to go up to the Xtreme to get really perceivable difference, but then of course it is also considerably greater.
Excellent range of your transmitter is newer Bluetooth version 5.0 itself. My old computer was a generation older Bluetooth resulting in unstable link, but as I said they are sending the wrong is not the speaker.
Like my JBL Flip 2, the only thing that was a little negative was the battery life, and that is now fixed with the JBL Flip third
So it gets full marks for that.
Very sound for the money in a small format.
Super Smooth sounding speakers for Black Friday price was one a bargain. However, as the base is a little low so the sound is not as rich, but clearly it is!
Kept in a little more than a year. Then went the USB connector is broken.
