Right now, you can grab the JBL Flip 5 Portable Waterproof Bluetooth Speaker on sale in white, sand, yellow and Fiesta Red, with prices starting at $84. This is a pretty huge discount, considering it usually retails for $119.99, so you could save as much as $35.95, depending on the color.
Beyond the incredible savings you’ll get if you grab this unit while the sale price lasts, there are tons of other reasons to want one of your own, as it’s the best portable Bluetooth speaker we’ve ever tried. Akin to other models in JBL’s Flip line, this product features IPX7 water-resistance, which is just a fancy way of saying you could accidentally drop it in the pool and it would still live to blast another Megan Thee Stallion banger (or three).
Not only can the Flip 5 survive quick dunks in the water, it boasts robust, crisp sound sound quality, distinctive round speaker grills and a powerful battery—you can run it for 12 hours off of a single charge. It also has strong Bluetooth (a 4.2 standard, for all you tech nerds) and comes with a built-in sleep timer.
In our opinion, it’s even better than its predecessor, the JBL Flip 4 (prices start at $78.99 on Amazon). It’s superior sleek design, higher volume levels and SB-C charging capability (the Flip 4 uses micro-USB) make this new-and-improved model the one to grab. And at this sale price, it’s even more tempting.
