My husband bought one of these JBL flip 5 Bluetooth speakers when he was out of town working so his work crew could listen to music while working. Well when he came home I borrowed his to take to work, I am a nurse at a small nursing home and my residents love to listen to music they will come out of their rooms and sit at their doorways so they can hear my music from my flip 5 speaker that I sit on top of my med cart in the hallway and all my residents can hear such great quality music from such a little device. I will even dance in the hallway with them even if they are in wheelchairs or can stand. It is amazing what some good peppy music does for even the elderly people, I can see their whole attitudes change and the smiles on their faces are priceless. One resident that recently passed away from COVID, was sitting in her doorway months ago as I had my flip 5 on and music playing and I asked her who was her favorite musician or song and I like to fell out when this elderly Caucasian female said Michael Jackson and song was Billie Jean so I looked it up on my phone and played it for her and she was in a wheelchair but she still patted her foot to the music and tapped her hand and fingers on her table and at times I could hear her singing along and this made me so happy to do this for her we had a great time that Sunday afternoon and a memory I will never forget This awesome little cute speaker charges up quickly just a few hours and good to go and I have used mine for a whole 8 plus shift even if not playing music it would still be on and I have yet to hear any low battery beeps etc. My husband loves that they are waterproof because of him working outside in the dirt and rain. He said what sold him on buying one for him was a friend he worked with had one also and forgot his hanging on the basket on a line truck and the next morning he got it and had dirt and mud on it so he took it over to the water hose and washed it off and all the dirt and mud can completely off and the water didn't do anything to this flip 5 speaker he shook it as dry as he could get it then hung it back on his bucket on his line truck and turned it on and worked just as good as before. I say if u love music and love even sharing music with others this little speaker is highly recommended by me and my husband. It is simple to connect to his and my iPhones. The buttons on the speakers are very easy to press and can be easily seen on the speaker. Also the volume can be adjusted by my iPhone volume buttons too. It makes the cutest sound when connecting to my phone which tells me is is connected. Never had an issue with it disconnecting for no reason. The range is good that is the range that my cell phone is from the speaker never had an issue with that I play music on it and put my cell in my scrub pocket and I am up and down the hallways and in rooms with doors closed and music keeps playing. I can't think of one problem/issue or complaint about this JBL flip 5 speaker. Worth the money and my residents appreciate me spending this small amount of money for them to have some happiness in their day and I do too. My husband bought his from a person advertising a used one wanting to sell when he was up north working I think he bought his for $50 dollars but I always use my Amazon prime so in case I don't like something I buy or have an issue I can return free and free 2 day shipping. And not very much more did I pay here for mine. I got pink and it is a pale pink not bright pink. I like it. I don't know if my managers at the nursing home that I work at would care or not about me playing music over my speaker but even if they did I would probably still sneak and do it because of the reactions I get from my elderly confused residents the smiles on their faces is why I would go against what a manager tells me not to do and do it anyway. These residents don't get much joy to be honest esp since COVID and isolation since middle of March 2020. They are depressed because they can not see (except through a closed window in their rooms) and can not touch their loved ones we that work there and love everyone of our residents don't replace the touch and hugs ans kisses they would be getting from the people they love the most in this world their children and grandchildren and even great grandchildren we have had residents pass away and they and their families haven't seen or touched since COVID and these are precious memories they can never get back it is depressing to me and I play music to keep all our minds off this depressing situation we are in right now and this little speaker helps me do this and is powerful enough to be heard from my med cart all the way down hallways and inside rooms. So even the residents that are bedridden can still hear some good music. So if u like good quality sound that can come from a small well built Bluetooth speaker that won't break your wallet then please buy this one. It also has a rope handle that my husband uses to hang his off the side of his bucket and it be out of his way. He is a lineman and stands in a bucket with limited room up high off the ground sometimes all day long so the rope handle is strong enough to hang this Light weight speaker from a hook and no worries of it breaking. Also I have accidentally dropped my speaker out of my nursing bad onto the cement floor in the nursing home and scared me because I would have been sick if it had broke my awesome speaker but turned it on and worked as usual I dropped it outside in the parking lot and no issues. Hope my review helps you realize this speaker is a good buy and u will be happy u did buy this one. Thanks

Was in the market for a new portable speaker. Originally bought one of these because I liked how it was advertised as great sound with waterproof features. The first one I purchased I have had for several months now and the sound still sounds great! Excellent battery life. I brought it on a float trip and it lasted and sounded great all day- in the sun. I did not try to get this wet but it was touched with wet hands often that day and it didn't disturb the speaker or the sound at all. I eventually bought a 2nd one so I could pair them and combine the sound. "PartyBoost mode" and "Stereo mode" are really cool and not something I've had in portable speakers, before. The sound quality sounds pretty freaking good when they are paired and I stick them in opposite sides of the room. Can not wait to use these features for an upcoming party. Overall, I feel like if you're looking for a pretty good sounding, higher-quality portable speaker without trying to pay top notch- this is definitely the route to go. While I know these aren't the cheapest portable speakers you can buy on the market- the higher price is definitely being put to use. I am very satisfied with these speakers and will hopefully stick with these speakers for years.

This JBL Flip-5 is the third unit I've tried. Sent back the first two because they were larger, but not louder than the ones I already had. I use this speaker for my in-car podcasts and audio books. The road noise can be loud, and makes it difficult to hear. This JBL is fantastic. Believe I could use it in a metal foundry or moto race track. It's clear and even louder than I need, so I use it at about half volume on the roughest roads. The on/off button is clear to see unlike with other units. It DOES NOT make an lcd light show, which I did not want. The charging indicator is clear and simple. It does not have a microphone, which I did NOT want (just interrupts the pod and is confusing on the road). The unit is extremely well-built. Maybe too heavy for backpacking, unless you're the designated music unit guy and someone else is lugging the wine. Also, comes with a 45" USB power cord, twice as long as the others came with. I chose black because my dashboard is black and the controls are super easy to see, but you can get a damn rainbow of colors if you like. Color me happy.

I absolutely love this speaker! It works so well and has such good quality sound for the price especially! It really bumps and the battery lasts such a long time for us. I keep mine in the kitchen but anywhere you bring it you’ll have great quality sound. I’ve tried it in every room of the house, it’s honestly akin to my old Harmon Kardon speaker I used to have and at a fraction of the size and price! Highly recommend.

I love this speaker. I had purchased a Bose before and it stopped working when I accidentally dropped it. This speaker has a cord that I hang on my wrist so I don’t drop it. The sound is so much better than Bose and clearer too. Definitely recommend.

My children love the quality and sound of the JBL Flip 5. This is the third one I purchased for as many children. Works well out of the box, Easy to pair the Bluetooth phone. The one I bought already 6 years ago for my oldest daughter is still holding up well. It costs more than the others but so far I have not been disappointed. Great selection of colors so each child is happy with her own color.

This speaker sounds absolutely amazing! I'm very tempted to buy another and link them for surround sound. I'm so impressed with how loud this speaker can be. I also love how well it balances the sound, and base. I would definitely recommend this product for anyone looking for a powerful speaker. The one thing I'd change is a carabiner instead of the cord.

I bought this for my mom as a mother's day gift and she LOVES it. The sound is great, especially for such a small device. It connects seamlessly to whatever device, and it even has pretty good bass. I actually tend to borrow it when she's not using it lol.
