JBL Flip 3 Portable Bluetooth Wireless Speaker £59.99 @ Currys

Found 28th Nov
I was checking Bluetooth speakers on Which? and noticed this had just come down in price. Previous price of this was £64.99.

Which? also give this only a 70% rating though a lot of people on here say this speaker is very good all the same.

Are you happy with the speaker?

Yeah, I ordered the boost a couple of months ago as well, sent it back because I wasn't happy with it. Good to hear you're happy with it all the same.

Hot! Bought a Flip 3 earlier this year for about £35 I believe (Although only 'Hot Pink' was available at that price). Very pleased with it, overall the sound quality is very good, and significantly better than my previous Flip 1. Despite not producing 'trouser flapping' bass, it does impose a hefty presence, albeit at lower volume levels. So not a party animal, but definitely fills a room for those that are expecting more modest usage. Place in a corner, or at least against a wall to improve the performance. Battery longevity is also a vast improvement over earlier models.

Great deal thanks for posting. I had the previous model & it was very good. Great sound from something that’s the same size as a tin of coke! Would recommend buying as I am going to get one. ( my husband nabbed my last one) Lol!

70% from Which is pretty good, I would say.

These are brilliant, but...

I've had three now and the battery. which is an improvement over the Flip2 just doesn't last.

When new the battery life is great but the batteries seem to plunge after about 6 months and then they're no better than the Flip2. (Minor observation but the sound field is narrower than on the Flip2)

Damn it, was thinking of getting one too! Though if it's any better than the Anker Boost, I may still get one. I thought the Boost was a bit muted in sound to be honest, that's why I sent it back as mentioned in my last post.

No complaints on sound quality, very good truly, but useless if the battery fails early.

Maybe why Which? scored this 70%, because of the battery. I'm reconsidering getting this now. Maybe look into buying a pair of stereo speakers instead. Might have to reconsider my budget as well. Oh well.

Ironically. and in very timely fashion. the third one is now down to 2ish hours battery life as of yesterday - crazy.
