How to Turn On JBL Clip 3 Bass Mode

We currently know of no way to turn on bass mode of the JBL Clip 3 poolside speaker, or if it even has a bass mode. But if this were possible, it would make the speaker vibrate more. It would also  add a surprisingly large bass quality to the content playing.  Indeed if they ever added this feature, it might work something like as follows…





How to Turn On JBL Clip 3 Bass Mode – Proposal

We propose that by default, the Clip 3 would have its extra bass mode turned ON, like some of the other speakers in the JBL line.  Specifically, this mode would add a bit of extra treble and lots more low frequency bass to the audio output, like switching on the Loudness control on 1970s stereo systems.

But if you turned this mode off, or think that it is off based on how the speaker sounds, then try turning bass mode on.  First, find the Bluetooth button on the speaker right side, and the Volume Down (-) button on the upper left front, as shown in the two pictures above.

You could turn bass mode ON by pressing and holding both these buttons for about ten seconds, until the pilot lamp on the top blinks a few times, as shown in the next picture.

Next, to reset bass mode back to what it was before, then again, you would press and hold the Volume Down (-) and Bluetooth buttons in until the light on the top flashes a few times.  You would release the buttons when that happens.

Finally after a short pause, the status light would go back a solid glow. Then after that, bass mode would be back to as it was once more.
