The JBL Clip 5 that was launched at CES 2024 adds a bit wider carabiner to help clip onto several items as well as an updated sound system that makes it up to 15 percent louder with even 10 percent more bass in contrast to the previous model. This lightweight, portable speaker as you should know will go on sale this very year for $79.95 and it also supports Bluetooth 5.3 with LE Audio as well as Auracast, alongside the rest of a 2024 lineup that is inclusive of the new $379.95 Xtreme 4 that can even run for up to 24 hours on a single charge, and the cheaper $49.95 Go 4.

Specs and Features of Auracast

Auracast for those that don’t know is one of the features of LE Audio, which has been described as “Bluetooth audio’s biggest upgrade in years.” And adding the ability to effectively connect multiple audio devices to a single source that makes them more capable than many other waterproof, lightweight, portable speakers that are designed for backyard barbecues, spontaneous picnics, or even pool parties.

And while the Clip 4 gave you 10 hours of playtime on one single charge, the Clip 5 on the other hand gives you 12 hours (at moderate volume). Very similar to its predecessors, the Clip 5 in question has IP67 water as well as dustproofing so it can effectively survive falling into a river or being directly thrown into the sand. It is also inclusive of a 40 percent increase in driver power, which JBL reveals that will enable for more “streamlined sound” and consistent bass.

The Clip 5 – Color Options and Availability

The Clip 5 devices will hit the shelves in June this year and it will include six color options.
