• improved battery
  • Crisp, clean sound (although it’s mono)
  • Water-resistant and floats
  • polystyrene carca


  • Mono sound instead of stereo
  • It does not have a 3.5mm minijack input.
  • It does not have hands-free or voice assistant
  • Bluetooth 4.2 (we expected 5.0)
  • USB-C port exposed to dust

Still, the changes don’t seem:

Surely we all already know about the JBL brand, a benchmark in manufacturing audio products as well as high-quality bluetooth speakers. From time to time they decide to update their most popular models to adapt them to new times and also increase sales.

This is what has happened with its new model JBL Flip 5 , JBL Sound system Bangladesh, which has been released with some controversy among its followers since some typical features of this model have been removed and others have been added. Something that, apparently, has not left everyone happy.

far-fetched and there is a notable improvement in sound and loading times as well.   So pay attention to the following review and find out all the details of this new JBL wireless speaker.

Finish – Design

If we compare it with its predecessor, what stands out the most about the JBL Flip 5 is its size. It is larger and presents slight aesthetic variations that give it a sophisticated and more modern appearance, although it is still a cylinder lined with a resistant fabric mesh.

Something bigger than the JBL Flip 4 . The JBL Flip 5 bluetooth speaker measures 18.1 centimeters in length and 6.9 centimeters in diameter. It weighs 540 grams and the model is still easy to transport since it has a hooking system where you can put a , JBL FLIP 5 Portable Price in Bangladesh, rope to hang or carry the speaker without problems. This is an advance that we liked a lot. On the front and on the protective cloth net we find the controls that do not allow you to manage the main playback functions. The play button, volume up and down plus the button to activate the Party Boost mode . At the top we find the power button and the Bluetooth button as well as a USB-C charging port that does not have a rubber cover, as the JBL Flip 4 does. An LED light informs us of the battery status and It gradually loses intensity, to let us know that it is time to recharge.

Another important fact to consider is that the JBL Flip 5 is IPX7 certified , which makes it resistant to water and dust. It should be remembered that IPX7, in addition to protecting against splashes of water and sweat, also protects from immersion.

The packaging includes a USB-C charging cable.

Sound quality

The first thing we should know is that, as with the JBL Charge 4 , this Flip 5 has mono sound instead of stereo as was the case with the previous model. We personally don’t dislike it, but it is true that the surround sound sensation is lost. Now it is more direct and less omnidirectional. The sound of the Flip 5 is powerful , with marked bass that does not detract from the rest of the frequencies. This is due to the passive radiators it has, which amplify the bass signal, allowing air to spread outside. There is some latency when playing YouTube videos, but it’s not annoying at all.

Sound becomes mono, as with other recent JBL products Apparently, JBL has decided to enhance that aspect by adding the Party Boost mode , which allows you to pair with other speakers of the same brand and model to create that effect. Something that seems like a pretty clever strategy to buy more than one speaker of the same model.

Responsible for the sound is a 4.4 x 8 cm transducer , which offers a nominal power of 20W RMS . The frequency response is 65 Hz – 20 KHz, let’s remember that the human ear picks up from 20 Hz, so some detail is lost at low frequencies. Two passive radiators are also included, located at each end of the speaker. With this you get a powerful and clean sound at the same time, which can also be configured through the JBL Connect mobile application .


There are three drawbacks to point out with the new JBL Flip 5 . First, that it does not have a 3.5 mm jack input and second, that it does not have a hands-free system to answer calls or to contact a voice assistant. Something that curiously is present in the previous model, the JBL Flip 4. Third, JBL Flip 5 is not compatible with its older model or other JBL flagship models, such as the JBL Charge 4 . This means that your JBL Flip 5 can only be paired with other speakers of the same model.

However, where we do see a positive evolution is in charging times and battery capacity. This improvement is due to the inclusion of a USB-C port that allows the speaker to be charged in just 2.5 hours , practically half the time required by the previous model. What we do not like about the USB-C port is that it is out in the open, that is, that it is not protected from dust with any cover. We lose 3.5mm minijack input and hands-free microphone / voice assistant The autonomy offered by the 4800 mAh battery is 12 hours of playback , which varies if we have the Partyboost system connected and if we use a high volume constantly. We at maximum volume lasted around 5 hours.

The Bluetooth version is 4.2 and the coverage range is 30 meters. Bluetooth version 5.0 is missing, which would further improve battery life, but version 4.2 works just fine. The speaker is available in 6 colors and its price is around €129 on Amazon, a price that will drop over time.

“Better sound than ever”


YouTube video


If you have the JBL Flip 4 or something similar like the Sony SRS XB-22 or the UE Boom 3 , this new JBL Flip 5 wireless speaker isn’t worth the money. 

On the other hand, if you want a speaker that will last you a long time, is portable, and the sound is clear and powerful, the Flip 5 is well built and will last you a couple of years at least. If you already have the portable speaker, you can rate it yourself with the stars in this review.
