As I have tested it, the max range in an unobstructed straight line is one-tenth (1/10) of a mile (528 feet). I put my phone on a stand six feet high off the ground.

Holding the JBL Clip 3 speaker above my head, I walked in a straight line away from the phone. (Samsung Galaxy S4). No joke. Seriously, I truly got it that far! And BTW, I highly recommend it! I’ve had mine for 5 months so far and I use it almost every day. It still functions just like the day I pulled it out of the box. GREAT sound quality for the price. It also has a super long battery life; I am able to play mine for a whole day (12 hours) on 70% volume! Hope that helps 🙂
I don’t really think so – your coworkers are likely to still hear it even with the volume turned down all the way. In my opinion, headphones or earbuds would be best in a shared office setting.
No just pair via Bluetooth

I got mine on sale for $29.99 a month ago and wanted to order another one to find the price up around $40 and delivery in 2 months.
The design would be durable enough for a great ride, but due to wind and pipe sounds being so loud on a motorcycle I don’t think the sound would come thru as loud as needed for enjoying music. It would be a very low output against the background noise on a bike.

Hey Jolie thanks for the question! Unfortunately the JBL Clip 3 Portable is not able to utilize our signature Party Connect or Party Connect Plus feature in order to pair multiples of these together. You would be able to find those features on our other products ranging from: JBL Flip 4/5, Charge 4, Xtreme 2 and Boombo… Hey Jolie thanks for the question!

I would not guess that the speaker floats, and would not test it purposfully to see if it does!
No, If you want to enjoy boosted sound by pairing a second speaker, you’ll need the older model ( clip 2)
no storage, music will only play via bluetooth.
Info About JBL Clip 3, Black – Waterproof, Durable & Portable Bluetooth Speaker – Up to 10 Hours of Play – Includes Noise-Cancelling Speakerphone & Wireless Streaming (Reviews From Amazon)
I bought this speaker to have in my bathroom so I can listen to music, podcasts, and youtube videos while I take showers. It does the job perfectly. The sound is loud enough to fill the entire bathroom and the quality is surprisingly clear. It does not sound tinny and distorted even on the higher volumes. The waterproofing is also very good as I have used this speaker for a few months in the shower without incident. The Bluetooth connection is easy to set up and it has never cut out on me once! The build quality is superb and it is surprisingly heavy for its size. There are no loose or wobbly bits and the construction is solid. The battery life is really good for what i use it for. I normally shower between 15 to 30 minutes and I only have to charge the battery once a week and a half. the battery takes around an hour to fully charge on a non quick charger. The only complaint I have is that the loop clip is not as big as I wanted it to be. Originally I wanted to mount it to the shower rod but its not as a big (see picture for reference). I finally managed to fit it on my shampoo holder and its been working out ever since.
Let me start by saying I love this speaker. I work at Walmart and we have these for $59, and only in black, camo, and silver. I’ve been wanting one for a while so I decided to go on here and check for cheaper prices first. Boy, am I glad I did! Not only was I able to get these for a good $20 cheaper, but in my favorite color; pink!
These are very good quality speakers, the first thing I did when I got mine was throw it in the pool to see if it was really waterproof like it says. I only left it in there for about a minute because I just wanted to hurry up and listen to music, but it does indeed float and no piece of hardware seems to have suffered as a result (there’s a rubber piece that covered the aux and charging port, and I worried that water might deep in after so long. But that appears to have not been the case). So if you’re thinking of taking one of these to go casually canoeing or kayaking, I would definitely recommend it, just so long as you’re not going white water rafting or anything intense (the speaker is pretty small and can fit in the palm of your hand, so it might get lost a bit too easily in rapids even if it does float).
Now, onto the sound. The sound quality itself is – in my opinion – about what you’d expect from JBL. Very pristine and clear, no lags or sudden disconnections from Bluetooth like some speakers have. The volume honestly doesn’t get all that high, even with your phone and the speakers’ volume at full max. However, it’s plenty loud enough for normal folk to enjoy while you’re swimming, hiking, boating, working, or whatever. Though when you take into consideration its small size, I am honestly impressed with how loud it gets. So if you’re wanting something compact that you can blast the neighbors out of house and home with, this definitely isn’t for you.
Now the clip. Let’s face it, the thing that probably attracts us most about this speaker is the fact it has a built-in clip for you to take it wherever you want; portable music! And it honestly accomplishes that feat really really well. A lot of cheaper clips won’t stay straight when you try to hook them onto things, and you have to physically move it back into place to fully ‘hook’. Not this thing. I’ve hooked it onto doorknobs, backpacks, the belt loops of my jeans…I’ve never had to readjust. Just clip and go. And for that reason alone I feel this thing is a keeper.
The battery life is supposed to be around 10 hours, and I honestly haven’t used it a WHOLE lot so far but it feels like it lasts longer to me. That may be just because I’ve been using it for a few hours on and off and not for the 10 hours straight, but the battery still lasts a good while. I got about 8-9 hours right out of the box alone, with no charging.
The ONLY thing that bugs me about this thing are the tiny, almost microscopic rubber nubbies on the bottom. I know they’re probably there for traction or whatever if you set it down on something, but they really irritate me to feel against my skin when I’m holding or carrying it. However it’s a small thing that’s definitely not a dealbreaker, and 90% of the time it’s gonna be hooked to something and not rubbing against my skin anyways. So other than that little thing this speaker is 100% gold to me!
1. Sound quality: 9/10
2. Volume: 7/10
3. Portability: 10/10
4. Waterproofness: 10/10 (though granted, I haven’t extensively tested this one, how long are you really gonna leave this thing in the water?)
5. Battery life: 10/10
6. Color: 10/10 (I know the pink looks terrible in the photos I provided, but I took them at nighttime under a *very* yellow light. Under normal lighting conditions it looks just like the stock photo)
Sounds good and battery lasts long enough for me. Super portable, I can hook it to a belt loop and walk with it. Bass is acceptable considering it’s low power consumption. Outdoors it’s not great but inside it’s great and a great shower speaker if you can find a place to hook it.
For years, I would carry a large portable radio to the Volleyball Court on the beach. It was heavy and took up a lot of room. Last year, I switched to a small bluetooth speaker, but it didn’t have the power I needed, and the battery crapped out after about two hours. THIS year, I bought the Clip 3, with 1000 mAh, and had it cranked on high for over three hours. Great sound out of such a small package and it clips right to the bottom of the net or a beach umbrella. I couldn’t be more pleased.
I was planning on giving this 5 stars, but after about a week of use the clip doesn’t close completely any more. I usually have it clipped on my bag or cooler tote and love how light weight and portable it is, and it has great sound quality. With how fast the clip loosened I’m nervous it will continue to over time.
This little speaker goes with me everywhere. It’s small enough to fit in my purse or backpack. The sound is exceptionally good for how small it is. The blue tooth connectivity is flawless. And it’s water proof! I love using it all the time, everyday and everywhere. It’s my new best little friend. And although I have three other blue tooth speakers (one an Aiwa boombox, the other a Sony and a Boss small box speaker) I use this JBL more than my other ones. It’s just so portable.
For $40 a speaker worth getting. I find it very durable. Works great, treat it well should last for years.
The speaker just arrived. Cudos to the Amazon driver for delivering my package to my building and not the 1 across the street. They r 2 for 2 on last 2 deliveries. The speaker is bigger than I thought. The Yellow looks more like a Gold color, which is what the pic looked liked. I like the color. I think it looks sharp. Sound is not bad for a portable speaker. Cranked Sabbath and ZZ Top both sounded almost as good as my JBL Flip 4’s. It is fairly light, so strapping to a belt loop, backpack etc should be no problem. It will not stand on it’s own. Paired to my iPhone in a few seconds. I plan on using when I take my everyday walk. I’ll update on durability after a month or 2.
The media could not be loaded. Super cool and good product
The media could not be loaded. I just purchased this a few days ago (10.31.2020) through the limited deal option for ~40% off (-$30). And I’m blown away by the quality of this little speaker. I originally wanted this waterproof speaker mainly for my shower and bike rides. I’ve purchased a few other cheap Bluetooth speakers on Amazon (around $25-$35 range) and honestly, this is the one to get – whether or not it is on a limited deal!
Love how easy it is to set up and pair, no secondary app needed. The buttons are easy to find, press/interact with, and the speaker itself feels solid and well constructed. It can get loud enough to and experience very minimal bass distortion at the very loudest setting (when you’re next to it, further away you can’t hear the bass distortion) I put it in the furthest corner away in my small bedroom, walked away across to the living and to the kitchen and I could still make out most of the tune and lyrics. That’s how loud and reliable the audio and connection were.
Lastly, I included a video to go over some other features that are nice-to-haves with iOS compatibility but wasn’t expecting them. I’m using an iPhone 12 pro running iOS 14 and the battery widget picked up the speaker and showed me how much power was remaining. Additionally, when I was searching for an inexpensive Bluetooth waterproof speaker, I was hoping for the capability of controlling Siri, and wasn’t clear from other reviews or JBL if it had that capability. Sometimes you want to request a song when you’re in the shower, rather than relying on a specific playlist (I know, first world problems.) Needless to say, I was delighted to see that when you long-press the play button, Siri works!
I feel spoiled.
Love the speaker. Sounds great and is incredibly portable. Waterproof aspects held up to the test on my paddle board at the lake. Very happy with it.
