JBL FLIP 5, Waterproof Portable Bluetooth Speaker

If there’s one thing the JBL Flip series is known for, it’s for being tough. The Flip series started out splashproof, and eventually made the jump to being completely waterproof—and that’s still the case with the new JBL Flip 5. It’s wrapped in a durable fabric material that gives it an IPX7 rating, meaning it can survive being submerged in up to three feet in water. On either end of the speaker is a tough rubber that protects the exposed bass radiators. If you don’t already have a Bluetooth speaker and are looking for an affordable speaker to knock around on your next adventure, the JBL Flip 5 is absolutely worth it. It has a tough waterproof fabric, good sound, decent battery life, and its portable size makes it a great option for just about everyone. Bottom Line: Whether your season is full of trips to the beach or backyard parties, you’ll need just the right speaker to DJ these events. The JBL Flip 5 gets the job done if you need something that’s very loud, and quite portable. For more information or to purchase, head here.

    This is really awesome! I always wanted to have a bluetooth speaker I could use at the beach.The fact that this is waterproof is excellent! I love listening to music especially at the beach.

    It seems the Aomais Sport II has everything going for it. Battery life is excellent as is the sound and the fact that it is protected against all the elements is perfect as far as a bluetooth speaker goes.I was wondering what the dimensions of it are?

      Hi Rob, and it really is a great speaker!  The dimensions are 9 x 2 1/2 x 4 1.2  inches.  So not big at all.  I can throw it in my beach bag along with everything else I need!

    This speaker looks like a great choice. The price is really good and I like the colors. I’m not sure why you think it may be too big as the pictures on Amazon look like it is a convenient size to carry around. Also, the carry case comes with a strap to make it really portable. There is also a great photo of a car wheel parked on it in Amazon. It must be really durable, as well as waterproof!

      Yes it is very durable Andrew! I guess size is relevant, and it packs a punch. So I like it!

    I love listening to music. It soothes my mind from all the stress. The AOMAIS Sport II is indeed perfect in almost about everything. You have pointed out exactly its value-for-money features. Had the chance to try it myself when a friend loaned it to me for a scheduled trip to the beach. Soon I’ll be getting myself one.

    Nice review Leahrae, beautifully written:)

     I got this speaker using a birthday gift card a little over a year ago.  This speaker is amazing and for the price, it is loud, lasts about 2 days on one charge, and pairs automatically.

     It’s fully waterproof and is safe sitting next to the pool, beach or wherever your travels take you.

    Regards

    Interesting review. I do love to always take durable speaker when on tour or having leisure time, playing my favorite music. AOMAIS Sport II worry it’s retro appeal still has a very modern appearance. I like the rubberized exterior that protects it from being dropped, and doesn’t show scratches, and it’s sound performance designed for pure volume output and will easily fill up a large open space with sound, which is perfect for outdoor parties or gatherings.  Although I had one with this wonderful features but not AOMAIS Sport II. I will love to test this AOMAIS Sport II as I buy it for my next tour. Hope port for cable to play with non-Bluetooth devices is provided?

      It is a bluetooth speaker so you won’t find a cable for non bluetooth devices included, but yes there is an aux port for your external device.  Please let me know if you have any other questions.

    Nice review about AOMAIS Sport II, this waterproof wireless Bluetooth speaker I must confess is the best I have seen recently. This is because I’ve never come across such design that is waterproofed. This feature really made it suitable for beach camping and other outdoor activities. I’m getting one of it as soon as possible.

      Yes very suitable!  Please let me know how you like it 🙂

    Ive been looking for an inexpensive wireless Bluetooth speaker for the beach and for when we go out on the boat. This one looks like it is pretty good quality and pretty durable as well. I will be carrying it around in my beach bag and it will be getting a lot of use. We go out on the river most weekends and plan on going to the beach a few times as well. Thanks for the review.

      You are so welcome Wendy.  What is nice is the price!  You would think that for the price, it might not be a great product, but it really is!  I love it!

    Hi there nice write up here. Thanks for the great information on this bluetooth wireless speaker.  I really love that it is waterproof and it sounds like the battery life is awesome (other comments).  So definitely something I think I might pick up to have.  I am thinking that the size is good to, I went to the link and it says 9 inches long.  That is not bulky at all.

      Great Sanni!  You will love the speaker.  I like it specifically because it is waterproof and I can take it to the beach and the sand also does not affect it much.  Yes, the battery life is great.  I think it lasts longer than what they say as well.  Enjoy it!

    I am a lover of the ocean and I travel a lot to different destinations around the world through sailing and I come in contact with water a lot. Due to my immense traveling, I have always gone with a waterproof bluetooth speaker but most of them don’t last. Although your article shows that the Aomais Sport II is okay but what guaranty do I have that it will last?

      Well I have had mine over over a year now and no problems.  I figure for the price (under $30) you can’t go wrong.  You can also get an extended warranty thru Amazon when you purchase it if you would like.

    I’ve been looking for one of these for my brother’s upcoming bachelor party! We’re planning on renting a boat and we have a huge crew of guys going so we purposely rented kind of a beater of a boat.  This means it doesn’t have a radio system at all! 

    We are going out on the boat all day though and I see you mention the AOMAIS Sport II doesn’t have the best battery life of the options you’ve tested. Could you point me to the one that might have the longest battery life?

      You know if you don’t have it playing at the loudest volume it will actually last you all day long.  I couldn’t find any other speaker that had a battery life that was any better….wireless that is.  So really you cannot go wrong with this speaker.  I actually love it!

    As summer is closing in, I was thinking about something like that but wasn’t actually sure how good can those speakers be, as I seen some with low-quality sound or were too quiet. This one seems like a good choice. Especially because it supports 3.5mm cable so I don’t have to worry about my battery dying from Bluetooth usage.

    P.S. Went to check the price. For 20W is not so bad 🙂

    Once again you have nailed a great post. I’m so glad to have your site handy. I have a bluetooth wireless speaker but it’s kind of on the bulky side when traveling outdoors so i’ve been on the market for a new one and this one looks great. You did a great job of highlighting it’s qualities so thank you, i’ll be going shopping now!

    Hello,
    You did a great job on this waterproof wireless Bluetooth speaker! I actually own this very speaker and love it! The sound quality is awesome. The battery life is actually much better than it says, I can listen to my music for hours! It is perfect for the beach,sitting by the pool, or out on the lake in my friends boat. I even use it during my family cookouts.
    It has a nice little place to put a strap on it for easy carrying. I actually bought the carrying case they have for it as well. It holds my speaker and charger.
    I would probably not recommend this speaker for hiking because as you mentioned, it is a little big and weighs a good bit for its size.
    It works perfect for what I use it for and the quality of it is great. I’ve even used it when I take showers.
    Thanks for sharing this with others. It’s definitely worth every penny it costs!

      Great Devara! I am glad to have another testimonial. I am going to get one myself. After reading all the reviews etc, it is the perfect choice for me. I live at the beach, and it is that time here in Florida for us beach lovers. Gotta have the music! Thanks for taking the time to leave me some comments 🙂

    Hi Matt,

    Awesome review!
    We do a lot of outdoor activities and music is something significant to us, especially when we go camping. This waterproof wireless speaker seems to be of great quality; I check this further on Amazon,
    I have an old phone, so I was wondering if it could fit this Bluetooth speaker? Or should I buy a new phone? My daughter will be very happy, she loves music, even when she brushes her teeth, she needs to listen to music:)
    Thank you for this excellent post!

      Just as long as your phone as bluetooth on it, then you are good. That is all you need. Which most phones do have, so you should be set! Yes, your daughter can take the speaker any where with her 🙂

    I love lying on the beach sunbathing. One thing I like is listening to music. But I don’t like not sharing my music with my partner which happens al the time since we both use our headphones. We tried a conventional Bluetooth speaker but it was ruined by the sand. I think I’ve got the solution for this summer! Thank you so much!!!
