My Flip 5 won't play notification sounds at all from my iPhone. How can I change this? (other bluetooth speakers play notification sounds just fine. It is just my Flip 5 that won't)

Asked by DMDE April 10, 2021

The notification sounds is an important feature of our speakers as it helps notify you when the device is either connected to a source device or any other important alerts. We need to work with you directly to get this feature turned on. Please contact our customer support at https://bit.ly/3r5oWYM

Please get back to me. Stereo was working most of the time before. For the last couple months it has not. THAT IS WHY I BOUGHT THE SECOND SPEAKER. So you are saying stereo mode is now unavailable??? That's cruel. Please let me know.

Asked by BobbyBee April 3, 2021

Our JBL Flip 5 plays stereo music though it only has one speaker. If you want a better stereo soundstage, you can pair them together using the PartyBoost function. Access the JBL Portable app and enable stereo so each speaker will work as a left and right channel. We'd like to work with you directly so we can help you out.

My JBL Flip 5 worked for just under an hour. Fully charged no issues. However it cut out the audio and started making a click noise. The audio will o my work if the audio level is turned to a bare minimal level. If you turn it up past that it clicks. Help

Asked by LS22 March 23, 2021

Please try to play music on a normal volume while it's connected to a charger. If the click noise stopped, your JBL Flip 5 may have a bad battery. If you need more help, please reach out to our Customer Support at https://support.jbl.com/us/en/

I have an iPhone 11 Pro Max and I purchased 2 JBL flip5 bluetooth speakers.  I updated firmware.  I have the JBL app.  When I use the partyboost part of the app, it is very difficult to add the 2nd speaker.  When it does add it works poorly.  I need help.

Asked by shih100 March 15, 2021

Thanks for your feedback about our JBL Flip 5. Here are the steps on how to setting up your PartyBoost speakers. First, turn on both speakers, allow both speakers to connect to your device via Bluetooth 3. Start streaming content to that speaker. Go into JBL Portable app. Allow the app to detect the single speaker playing content. Once detected, press the Connect/Partyboost button on both speakers. Allow the app to identify both speakers. You should now see the option for both Party mode and Stereo Mode. Lastly, before switching to Stereo Mode, play > 5 seconds of audio in Party mode. Now turn on stereo mode within the app. If you need more help, please reach out to our Customer Support through here: https://bit.ly/2Jc8wJp

How do I get sound out of my flip?  Need to know how to operate .

Asked by Vcal March 12, 2021

Hi there, our JBL FLip 5 must be connected to a music source via Bluetooth. Please visit our website and consult our Bluetooth Pairing Guide : https://support.jbl.com/us/en/product-support/bluetooth-pairing-guide.html

Can you use party link in stereo mode from the hardware? I know how to use the JBL app to set it up, but it isn’t convenient and crashes often. Thanks!

Asked by JadeNorth March 7, 2021

The stereo mode option will only work using the JBL Connect app. Unfortunately, the stereo mode option for our JBL Flip 5 is currently not available, as we are still working on a resolution to the Stereo Mode issue. You can still use Partymode for our JBL Flip 5 speakers.

Can the JBL FLIP5 connect to a laptop computer?

Asked by Pat 2021 March 1, 2021

You can play ONE Flip 5 speaker, but if there is a way to play two in either Party Boost or Stereo from a PC, I sure cannot figure it out. Have tried quite a few things. I DO NOT understand why JBL does not provide instructions on how to do this. Unless you can't do it and they want you to buy two speakers and find that out later.

I purchased the JBL Flip 5 from a authorized dealer a week ago and the music is fantastic in every aspect of the sounds produced. You really need to listen to the JBL Flip 5 to believe the sound quality which it could produce. If you are a music lover you should be able to access and listen to music anywhere, anytime and the Flip 5 makes it happen rain or shine !

Sound quality Is extremely solid Lots of bass and clarity Feels like a big boom box if you turn it up loud . We take it everywhere !! Bought this and the smaller one for my teenage daughters , but I’m going to get one for myself . They use them so frequently no room for borrowing.

One Of The Best Gift I've Ever Bought Myself
I bought this a few weeks ago and had it personalized with my branding and wow do I freaking love it. Sounds great, connects quickly to my computer and phone. Plus the print is beautifully done.
Great value!
I bought this product yesterday and I'm overall satisfied with it. The sound quality could be slightly more crispier in my sence but it is just below from great. Great bass and build quality. I would give it 9 out of 10.

Personalized Flip 5
I got the custom jbl flip 5 and oh man does it look really good. The only two negative things I can think of is that it does smell like something (fresh ink?) and that the colors on the speaker look wet, but they don't actually rub off on anything. I imagine as time goes on the smell will go away as well as the speaker looking wet.
by Lavarocks
This thing is dog proof
The sound on this speaker is great, but I'm most impressed with its durability. My dogs got at this thing while I was gone one day and destroyed it (or so I thought). It still works perfectly!
by Kath2319
Very durable!! Has taken a beating and still great
I love my flip 5. I purchased it to clip onto my saddle while horse bag riding. It has been used in the rain, dropped in mud and it even survived the time my horse tripped and fell and had me and the speaker pinned underneath. Still delivers that amazing sound. It cleans up well. There is a little fraying of the material where it rubs my saddle but that is my own fault. The speaker was built to last and I have no complaints!
