The best speaker in its price range without a doubt.
Was debating between the Flip 6 and the Soundlink Flex, and I’m very glad I went with the JBL. Although the Soundlink Flex may have better clarity at lower volumes, however, it didn’t get nearly as loud and got slightly distorted at higher volumes.
Best takeaways from the Flip 6 that opted me to purchase it over its competitors
1. Bluetooth 5.1
2. Addition of a “tweeter” compared to the last gen Flip 5
3. Amazing Battery Life
4. VERY loud for its size. 50-60% volume is enough to fill my entire dorm room (with a moderately loud listening volume)
5. ADJUSTABLE EQ with the JBL app. This feature is truly the dealbreaker between the Flip 6 and all of its competitors. Being able to tune to speaker to your desired settings (based on the music you listen to). Personally, I recommend ticking the bass up 1 click and drop the treble by 1 click.
Very satisfied with my purchase and will most certainly purchase more JBL products in the future.
A year ago, I checked out a bunch of Bluetooth speakers and decided on the Flip 5. The bass was incredible, but I did wish it had a smidge more treble and wished it had an adjustment for bass/treble WISH GRANTED! The Flip 6 is even better than the 5, as it adds a tweeter to give me more treble that I wanted AND the JBL app provides an equalizer for bass, mid and treble! Each of these can be adjusted +/- 2 notches. I found that I like it best with the bass +2 and the treble +2 (picture of the equalizer in the app attached).
The battery lasts for quite a long time. I also like that it has a wrist strap already attached to it and use that with a small bungee to hang it on a beach umbrella or a tree branch.
You'll be AMAZED at the clarity and volume of the sound that comes out of this little speaker!
I couldn't decide between the Charge 5 and the Flip 6. One has a bigger sound and 20 hour battery (Charge) and one is more portable with a 12 hour battery but still has great sound (Flip), amazing bass for its size. So I got both, expecting to maybe return one within BB's 15 day return policy. What I found was that the two together are amazing... They have a link feature (PartyBoost) that gives a huge spatial sound when in use. I put the larger speaker in front of me and the smaller off to the side, closer to my ear. Once you hear this it will be hard to listen to just one speaker. So, keeping them both, very happy with my purchase... JBL links to Bluetooth effortlessly (I have an android phone and other BT sources). Once linked, sound will switch between speakers by turning the power on/off.
JBL's have excellent sound quality, are well built, precise sound with perfect bass. I also have Bose's Soundlink Flex and Color II. Bose speakers are smooth sounding with no bass punch or defined highs. Just nice sounding bluetooth speakers. I have JBL's Charge 5 and Flip 6. Both these speakers provide excellent sound quality with precise highs, mids, and bass. As you go up in size one will find more bass coming through. Not room shattering but perfect for the size of each bluetooth speaker. Excellent app for bass and treble adjustments. This was a deal maker for me as Bose does not provide this option in their app. Party mode is good on both. I have 2 Soundlink Flex's and find the stereo sound more balanced. The JBL's are very good but find the larger Charge 5 tends to overpower the Flip 6. Regardless, if I had to recommend either I would recommend the JBL's over the Bose for pure sound quality and app setup. Bose is good but just not enough sound adjustment options to assist with sound quality.
This speaker gets very loud. I like that it's compact and I can wrap my hand around it when I carry it around outside. It has a wrist loop so you don't drop it. The bluetooth range is awesome. I was very surprised with the audio quality coming out of this speaker. When turned up to around 75% it sounds like a much bigger speaker and can fill a very large room with good audio. It looks good with the newly designed logo. The ends have a rubber coating so it protects the speaker if you bump it against something, and so it won't scratch paint from a wall as easily. Battery lasts all day for me at 40% volume and is loud enough.
The flip 6 offers the perfect balance of size, loudness, and quality for me. There are not really times where I wish it was louder, but I'm also not using this for parties or other larger events. Perfect for playing around the pool, apartment, or even in the car. My friend's car speakers suck so much that this little speaker sounded better, and it fits in the cupholder.

JBL Flip 6 review: The best BANG for your buck small Bluetooth speakerOur JBL Flip 6 review looks at a Bluetooth speaker with great battery life, improved sound, USB-C charging, and an attractive price point.
A:AnswerThe Flip 6 adds a tweeter so it has improved treble sound. It also adds that it's also "dustproof". To me though, the big news (that they don't seem to mention) is that the JBL mobile app includes an equalizer for the Flip 6. You can adjust bass/mid/treble by +/- 2 notches. So you can make an already great sounding speaker sound even better with tweaks provided in the app!
