Harman intros JBL Pulse 3 and Flip 4 - new portable, water-resistant Bluetooth speakers
Harman International (which is in the process of being acquired by Samsung) announced two brand new water-resistant portable Bluetooth speakers: JBL Pulse 3 and JBL Flip 4.

The JBL Pulse 3 is an elegant speaker that provides 360-degree stereo sound and a customizable 360-degree LED light show, while packing a battery good enough for up to 12 hours of playtime.

Also including a 12-hour battery, the JBL Flip 4 is a rugged speaker (more suited for outdoors scenarios) that does not have any light show capabilities - but that's why it's going to be cheaper.

Both the JBL Pulse 3 and JBL Flip 4 are IPx7-certified for water-resistance, so you don't have to worry about rain or accidental spills. The two accessories feature noise and echo-cancelling speakerphones, letting you seamlessly take phone calls, and can be connected to up to 2 smartphones or tablets (via Bluetooth). A JBL Connect+ app can link even more speakers together for an amplified, richer listening experience. Moreover, a JBL Voice Assistant Integration feature lets users access Siri or Google Now, and control music playback via voice command.

Harman will start selling the JBL Pulse 3 and JBL Flip 4 this spring, via JBL.com. The Pulse 3 is priced at $199.95 (and will be available only in black), while the Flip 4 costs $99.95 (coming in 6 vibrant colors). Any buyers here?
