One of the reasons why I’m into these small gadgets is that it’s perfect for an on-the-go traveler like me. I like something easy to bring and practical at the same time. If you’re in the market for few cool add-ons, we’ve written a review on why you should own a JBL Clip 3 Bluetooth Speaker today!


For a small package, this Bluetooth speaker from JBL does really packs a punch of great bass and overall audio quality. Just like the Clip2 version, what I love about it is the integrated carabiner so I don’t lose it easily. The carabiner is actually the oblong metal part with a spring-hinged side to help secure the speaker by allowing clipping onto a bag or belt loop.

The device also has the same three playback buttons embedded in the front fabric of the speaker, and a cutout for a 3.5mm cable located at the back. Another favorite feature is it’s lightweight with a design packing 7.8 ounces as the total weight.


When it comes to pairing, it’s quick and easy. However, when it comes to charging the battery, it takes a while to fully charge it, say like three hours to ensure its connectivity. Despite its long charging time, you can use this device for 15-16 hours of playtime.

The other feature I liked about the gadget is its clarity. Even in soft vocal and minimized volume, you can still clearly appreciate the quality of audio if it does. It also has a decent bass kick and despite its small size, it’s pretty loud with a high-volume setting makes the listening experience more worthwhile.

How do I know when my JBL Clip 3 is fully charged?

The red blinking LED light on the top of the volume control indicates that the battery is almost empty and should be recharged soon. When charging, the LED light will be constantly in red color and will eventually turn off once the battery is fully charged. Pull out the charging cable carefully, to avoid damaging the micro USB port!

Overall Review

If you want a perfect gadget you can bring outdoor, then this one is highly recommended. It’s the perfect device to bring on the beach, on camping, on road trips, or if you want to listen to music while showering. Name it!

JBL does not disappoint when It comes to portable speakers – and the Clip3 Bluetooth is a great testimonial for that.
