The brand says that its latest offering is built with quality materials and is waterproof and dustproof. It adorns new colours and a big logo to differentiate it from its previous model.
Vikram Kher, Vice President, Lifestyle, HARMAN India, said, “JBL Flip 6 offers a bold new logo design, more powerful than its predecessors and comes armed with the latest in cutting edge JBL sound technology”. Kher added that it offers features such as PartyBoost, and the “revolutionary racetrack driver”. Additionally, it “adds a separate tweeter and dual passive radiators to deliver your kind of music with even greater depth and power”.

The JBL Flip 6 can be controlled via the JBL portable app. You get a three-band equaliser to play with and adjust the sound as per your preference.
