    Sounds better then Clip 2

    Posted
    Soundguy86

    I still have my Clip 2 so I can compare it side by side with the new Clip 3. My reasoning for purchasing the Clip 3 was for its top mounted controls which are a much needed addition, plus the elimination of the built in auxiliary cord in favor of a protected auxiliary socket. I rarely used the built in auxiliary cord so removing it was a smart move at least in my opinion. The new clip design isn't as big as the old model but I haven't had any issues with it in use. The speaker phone function is also just as good as the old one. JBL uses noise and echo canceling mics on their speakers which is great, my GF hasn't asked me to repeat myself once. Battery life is also advertised as being two hours longer which is great, but I never had an issue with battery life on my Clip 2. Its just nice to know I can go longer between charges. Audio wise JBL has listed the same specs for the Clip 3. The speaker is still at 3 watts and has the same frequency response. But in comparing them side by side the Clip 3 has more bottom end, more pronounced and fuller sounding mids and the highs seem to have been adjusted to match up with the mids and lows. Plus at higher volumes the Clip 3 doesn't seem to limit its audio profile as much as the Clip 2 does, but both speakers get just as loud which is fine since the Clip 2 could get pretty loud for its size. The differences aren't like night and day but you notice them right away when switching between the Clip 2 and Clip 3. BT range is about equal between them which is great on both speakers, its about 60 feet if I had to guess. Both speakers also have a solid connection. So overall I think the Clip 3 is a worth while upgrade over the Clip 2. The new button location was a big reason for me, but the unexpected bump in audio quality was a nice surprise.

    Bored washing dishes or any other household chore? Grab one of these speakers, clip it on a belt loop, cabinet handle, or shower curtain hook and enjoy music, a book, or documentary. It has a decent amount of bass to enjoy your music, and is loud enough to hear over running water, washer/dryer noise, or any other household noise. The hook makes it versatile to take outside of the home as well, and basically makes any environment an entertainment zone. The battery life is pretty good as well and has an indicator light to let you know when it needs to be charged. The only complaint that I have is the short charging cord that comes with it. My charging cord for my JBL headphones is a lot longer and more convenient to use.

    Pairs easily, awesome battery life and extremely portable. Sounds better than many bigger speakers but will never thump with bass due to size. That said - it’s still extremely satisfying to listen to in a variety of environments and gets surprisingly loud. The built on clip and physical volume and play/pause buttons come in handy. I wear this thing on my belt loop working in warehouse everyday and it’s really helps they day pass. Only minor disappointment is that it can’t be paired with other jbl speakers due to software limitations but since it’s primary use is on the go that is not a huge deal to me. No issues and am extremely happy with the purchase.

    This little dude is cool. I caught it on sale and thought I'd try it. Main thing for me this clip actually has an opening/connector or whatever (others don't), it makes it much more practical. I have a really nice Bose bluetooth speaker for most of my listening, but this one stays in the bathroom and I love taking it into the shower to listen to some morning radio shows. We also take it with on walks, bike rides, pool, beach...you name it. This is now even my default to take on business trips for the hotel room. Again, the clip is convenient and sound is really good for the size!

    From the many Bluetooth speakers I have owned in my life time this is one of the best + favorite one I've owned. I was pondering on if I should go with JBL Clip 2 or 3 and I went with 3 because it's design is awesome I love how the hook goes around the speaker to better protect from a drop and it feels comfortable to fit in my hand. The new button layouts is a big + making it easy to know where controls are. Bass is great, range is good. I'm not bothered there isn't an aux built in as in 2 because if I needed to I can still use an aux cord and plug into aux port. Easy clip easy portability. Longer battery life. Haven't tried using it for calls that much. Won't regret buying.

    I purchased this on sale from Best Buy. Out of the box it was quick and easy to pair with my computer and cell phone. I love the easy access buttons on the top and side of the Clip 3. It makes it easy to adjust the volume and turn the Clip 3 on and off. The sound is rich and plentiful from such a small package. The sound is as good as larger and much more expensive speakers I've seen. I love how portable this is and it feels sturdy and well made. I'm happy I caught this on sale for under $40. It's well worth the price for such a great portable speaker!

    This little speaker is extremely convenient to have around whenever and wherever you need to break up the monotony during your day. It’s good, but not great so don’t expect perfect sound quality. It’s better than other portable Bluetooth speakers in its price range, but don’t expect ground shaking bass. The only thing I don’t like is the inability to connect to multiple devices, but don’t let that be a deal breaker. All you have to do is press the Bluetooth button on the side and connect whatever you want at the moment. Is it worth the money? Absolutely.

    This little guy right here packs so much power it's unbelievable, very very loud I constantly get compliments and always have people looking around to see where is the music coming from, the Bluetooth connection was easy and quick, charging it doesn't take longer than 1.5 hours, battery life is great up to 4 hours I have gotten on mid to high volume, very stylish, if u have the jbl clip 2 I honestly don't see why you would upgrade but if this is your first time purchasing this then yes I'll highly recommended

    These JBL clips are one small speaker that clips to your jeans or backpack. They are loud and simply let you hear your souroundings, talk to people, and even listen to tv while having music on. For this I simply say they are very inexpensive and are a great everyday speaker. I have no problems at all with them and they are waterproof. Let’s go to the beach! I got my sandles, shorts, a cookie and oh yeah my JBL clip. Either while lounging, sitting around, or on a scouter at the beach these JBL clips are loud and give you a party anywhere you are. Best deal in speakers.

    Bought this speaker to use while at work. I've bought other JBL bluetooth speakers previously, but this one for some reason is easier for me to carry around as I clip it to the belt loop in my uniform which makes it easier for me to move around without problem. The only down side is that I feel the older model JBL speakers sounded a little louder than this one but I had more difficulty trying to clip it it anywhere. Still sounds great and would highly recommend

    Battery life is better than I expected from previous speakers I have purchased that gave a certain amount and didn’t last as long as it said. With this speaker I can use it for majority of my 8 to 10 hour day. If I charge it on my break it last the whole 10 hours!! Also like that I can clip it to my pants and walk around my work freeing my hands up to do my job and still be able to hear it over the machines I work by.

    This speaker is quite loud for its size. It's solid and is water resistant so that it can be used in a shower or swimming pool. The clip is great cause you can hang it from your shelf or bag and its size allows it to keep a low profile as well. If your looking for the best sound quality look towards the Bose Speakers, but if you want good sound quality and convince then look no further.

    The Smallest JBL Clip Got Better

    Read onthe fact they came out with new colrs and opted for the Ocean Blue color.line articles of the new JBL Clip 3 Bluetooth speaker and the improvements that had been made to it. I like the fact that the clip is integrated into the speaker and that it can play for up to 10 hours. Keep in mind that when the first Clip came out, it was only 5 hours. I like the fact that they came out with additional colors and had opted for Ocean Blue.

    The sound from this thing is GREAT. It's perfect size to clip onto a backpack or take with you to the beach/pool. The sound is impressive....strong and clear quality. Because it's JBL, you can count on sturdy build quality as well. Definitely happy with my purchase. Sounds really good outdoors, and the fact that it's waterrpoof is comforting since we use it by the pool.

    This is the second JBL portable speaker I have bought. The sound quality is very good. The only thing that I would say that is negative is that it is advertised as water resistant/tolerant,however this is not exactly true. I accidentally dropped it in water and it was submerged for a few minutes, once I got it out and dried it off it no longer works.

    I had given my old anker soundcore to my sister so needed a new Bluetooth speaker. Found this jbl at a great price and picked it up. Battery lasts long time and the bass is awesome. It’s waterproof but I’m not about to check on that. Great for barbecues or working on the house to listen to music. Clips anywhere.

    This speaker feels pretty rugged, is very mobile and sounds great. I use this speaker outside and keep it close-by or in my pocket and it sounds very good. It also sounds very good inside. Being able to tune the speaker with an e.q. makes a big difference whether inside or out. Compact, good sound and a dis-counted price at BestBuy made this a good deal!

    Pros: 1. Very handy / portable 2. Hook enables hanging 3. Loud sound, 4. Good sound reproduction, 5. Phone call function works loud and clear Cons: Only one paired device Note: Try to hang it in such a way that the rear surface is not covered. Sound reproduction is better than if it is hung on a wall or lying flat.

    I wanted a speaker that was very portable as well as waterproof. The problem with small is you usually suffer on sound but not with this speaker. For the size it sounds great, easy to connect with and has a decent blue tooth range. My only wish would have been if it also had a microphone to accept calls when your phone is connected to it.
