LONDON – JUNE 2020 – JBL brings back the summer favourite, the Flip 5, with the launch of the new Eco edition. The compact Bluetooth speaker is back with the same superb sound and cool tech as before - this time with an environmentally friendly twist. 

The JBL Flip 5 Eco edition is made from 90% recycled plastic while the portable speaker’s entire packaging is biodegradable. Available in two beautiful limited-edition colours – ‘Ocean’ blue and ‘Forest’ green – the speakers retain all your favourite features of the original Flip 5, including JBL Signature Sound, PartyBoost tech, 12-hour battery life and waterproofing. Just throw it in your backpack or carry-on and rock on, rain or shine. The Flip 5 Eco will keep the party going all night! 

Rebellious at heart, the portable speaker packs a punch for its size, pumping out your favourite beats with crisp bass and awesome sound. The Flip 5 Eco’s two new colour tones give a delicate aesthetic to the portable speaker and can be enjoyed anywhere that you and your crew go! 

HARMAN is very excited to build upon their award-winning speakers by using recycled materials.  

“These limited-edition Flip 5 speakers are our first step into producing consumer devices made from recycled plastic. We worked hard to find recycled materials that would not compromise JBL’s famous Signature Sound and we feel the two new colours will really appeal to our fun-loving fanbase.” 

Dave Rogers, President, HARMAN Lifestyle Audio.
