They also didn’t appreciate its missing voice assistant support.

The JBL Flip 6 was praised by expert testers for its outstanding portability and neutral sound profile. The testing team from SoundGuys credited its bass levels and noted that the vocals were clear. They also liked its user-friendly JBL Connect app, while analysts from Techradar confirmed during their music tests that the speaker got loud enough to fill a room. They were happy that it could pair up to 100 speakers and that its battery could last up to 12 hours at moderate volume. The speaker doesn’t have RGB lighting like the JBL PartyBox 100 does, but it is much easier to move around with. Feel free to explore our JBL PartyBox 100 review if you’re interested, but check out our JBL GO 3 review for a more compact alternative.

Still, reviewers felt that the Flip 6 was not the best pick for movies and videos since it couldn’t play stereo content independently. They also lamented its lack of a speakerphone functionality and missing voice assistant support. It also doesn’t have WiFi connectivity.

The JBL Flip 6 is a mid-tier Bluetooth speaker that was first made available in early 2022. The speaker is the successor to the JBL Flip 5, which is pretty easy to tell since the two look quite similar. Weighing only 1.1 pounds, the Flip 6 is one of the best top speakers to consider for portability, and it also has a battery that lasts up to 12 hours. Its Bluetooth connectivity is also ideal since the speaker can be paired with two different devices and maintain a strong connection for up to 210 ft. As you’d also expect from the top-ranked Bluetooth speakers designed for outdoor use, the Flip 6 also has an IP67 rating, meaning it is both dust and water-resistant. It also has a removable carrying strap to make moving around with it much easier.
