FAQs & How-Tos

14 results
  • You will need to dry the charging port completely before plugging in power for charging.
     
  • This product does not feature speakerphone or voice assistant functionality as it does not have a microphone.
  • This speaker does not have an Aux Input, so no analog connection is possible.
  • Our FLIP 5 speaker is an "All-weather companion," and sometimes it can get dirt and other substances on it. Clean your speaker under lukewarm water from your water tap, and use a microfiber cloth to remove stains. Do not use any alcohol or other to remove stains and dirt. Do not charge your product while the charging port is wet; make sure it is dry before you connect it to a charger. Contact our Customer support if you need more advice.
  • If you encounter issues using the speaker with your phone or tablet, or you want to remove all previous Bluetooth pairings from the speaker, it may be necessary to 'factory reset' the speaker.

    How to reset
    First, remove or forget the speaker from the list of paired Bluetooth devices in the settings of the phone or tablet.
    Then, with the speaker powered on, press and hold the Volume + and Play buttons simultaneously for 3 seconds until the unit turns off.
    The speaker has now been restored to factory default settings. 
  • This product is rated IP67, which is different from IPX7. IP67 protects the product from submersion in 1 meter (3.3 feet) of water for up to 30 minutes. It is also resistant against dust. Dust accumulation around electronics can lead to hardware failure, so the IP67 rating is an extremely beneficial addition to this product. 
  • You cannot download the JBL Portable App on a PC. This app is only available on mobile devices.
  • If you create a Stereo Pair using the JBL Portable App and you come within range of additional PartyBoost compatible speakers while they are ON, the app will find these speakers. This will break the stereo pair and create a mono PartyBoost group that includes all active speakers that are in proximity. This only happens when the JBL Portable App is actively running on the source device, including when it is running in the background, and when these other speakers are ON. To avoid this scenario, make sure the app is completely closed, without running in the background before coming near any additional PartyBoost speakers that happen to be ON.


    NOTE: The Portable App does not need to be running in order to enjoy Stereo sound from two speakers

  • The new PartyBoost does not support the previous Connect and Connect+ features. For example: You will not be able to successfully connect the new PartyBoost enabled Flip 5 with a Connect+ enabled speaker like the Pulse 3 or Flip 4. You will not be able to connect the Boombox 2 to the original Boombox speaker.

  • 1. Connect the first Partyboost speaker with your phone and keep music playing (for best results play music on this speaker for more than 20 seconds before proceeding with the next steps).

    2. Press the Partyboost button on the first speaker.
    3. Turn on the second speaker that you want to connect in Partyboost mode.
    4. Now press the Partyboost button on the second speaker.
    5. After a few seconds, both Partyboost speakers should connect and play together.
    It can take a few seconds after music is started before sound will be heard from both speakers.
    This is also the process for connecting more than two speakers in Party mode, simply turn on the other compatible speakers and press the Partyboost buttons. PartyBoostButtonsGroup.png
