JBL Flip 5 Portable Speaker - Black is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 669.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Speaker but Cmon JBL I waited and waited.....and waited for this speaker because I lost my Flip 4 and thought the Flip 5 would be around much earlier than late July. So it finally comes and it has Partyboost that is not backward compatible with Connect+. Now I'm finding out the two features and how they connect use different hardware to do so and therefore a firmware update is most likely not possible so that partyboost and connect+ will become compatible. Dont get me wrong this is a darn good speaker and the best in its category but... NOW I am gonna get another Flip 4 to pair with my Charge 4 so I can party Connect+ style instead of Partyboost style. And no Bluetooth 5.0?!? Coming from a big fan - shame on you JBL

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Why Party Boost If you already made customers buy into the connect plus why make the party boost, it already connects to multiple so why make party boost, you guys are loosing people with your decisions..I was looking into the flip 5 and you took away connect plus with a money scheme which is ....party boost, no aux, mono speaker,4.2 Bluetooth while phones have 5.0 like my S10+.. Don't make your old models look like a better version even with your latest release.. Please DO NOT DO THIS TO THE XTREME 3 PLEASE KEEP STEREO NO PARTY BOOST...or release a update to pair with plus and keep the AUX

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice sound Great sound from a little speaker ,to be so small this speaker does a good job at creating a decent sound stage ,it sounds even better if u connect 2 of them together and put them in different part of the room , the sound is amazing ,it’s ipx7 waterproof the battery life is decent ,I played it at a little over half volume for about 6 hours and it still has over half battery life left .This is a great compact speaker to carry in a back pact or use the strap and carry in your hand or even a jacket pocket [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound I bought myself 2 jbl flip 5's and they really sound amazing. I used them indoors and even outside when having a braai and they surprised me every time, as a single speaker and even in partyboost. Therefor my 5 star rating. However I must say. Playing at 70 to 80% volume constantly made the battery last only 5 hours which is not to good for me. And even when playing 30 to 50% volume it wouldnt even last 12hrs as advertised.(your site shows more than 12hrs). And when playing in partyboost the speaker connected to your phone runs flat quicker than the other that's only connected to the main speaker. I love this speaker and will recommend it to anyone.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Flip 5 vs flip 4 This newer JBL flip 5 is much louder then the flip 4 when I compared them. It also has more bass. And now it's a little bigger then the 4. The flip 5 also now has a usb type C port vs the older model not having this type. What I don't like that made me give 4 stars is the fact they took away the speaker feature that let's you use it as a speaker phone and the alexa feature. It also looks tougher then the 4 if you was to drop it. This one has a waterproof of IPX7 and a battery life of 12 hours playtime which is great. But besides that I think it's a nice Improvement over the flip 4. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Sound from Small Package I have been reviewing this speaker for about a week and a half. This speaker has a great sound which last all 8 hrs I was playing it and still had battery left. The speaker is really loud but does distort at top volume depending on music style. I really like the look of the red speaker as you can see in pictures. I was unable to try the waterproofing but sure it works just as all other features do. I feature I can't wait to try and most interesting is the Party Boost. To connect and stream to several speakers. I can't wait to hear that sound. Overall a great speaker with really good features and sound. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't buy the inter-connectivity hype... I have a Charge 4 that sounds great and works well--I wasted an entire day today going back and forth to stores, buying and returning other JBL speaker models including this one because they're so unclear about how their devices interconnect. Apparently the Flip 4 would have connected with my Charge 4, but the 5 no longer can. What I've learned the very hard way today is that the Charge 4 connects via "Connect+", the Flip 5 connects via "Party Boost", and the Link 10 only connects via Chromecast--but supposedly the Flip 4 would also use Connect+. At this point however, I'm so fed up I don't plan on buying it to test it. Long story short--unless you're going to connect more than one of the same EXACT speaker, don't hold your breath.
