JBL Flip black

 

At this price, it sits between the Jawbone Jambox , the Beats Pill , and several other contenders in the $150-$200 price range, and smaller speakers such as JBL's Micro and Philips' grenade-shaped SoundShooter SBT30ORG/37 , which costs $50 and also has...

The affordable JBL Flip is a compact portable Bluetooth speaker that is designed to be used horizontally or vertically. It sounds good and plays loudly for its size, has speakerphone capabilities, and ships with a neoprene carrying case.

The unit is powered by a generic, somewhat bulky AC adapter instead of USB, and the 5-hour battery life is only OK. It doesn't handle bass-heavy material incredibly well.

The JBL Flip's decent performance and attractive design make it a worthy Bluetooth speaker contender at $100.

JBL Flip Bluetooth Speaker Review

 

The reason why I purchased this speaker was for the sound quality. I mean, I have heard a lot about the Jambox, and it's features, but that unit is out of my budget. I haven't heard a Jambox in real life, other than those demos at the stores, but the...

JBL FLIP BLUETOOTH SPEAKER REVIEW

 

I have loved using the JBL Flip with my iPad. My kids often crawl in my bed to watch a movie on the iPad together, but everyone is always complaining that they can't hear. They were so excited when I pulled out the JBL Flip. The sound was incredibly...

JBL Flip, OnBeat Venue offer big sound

 

Overall, I did enjoy the Flip and had the chance to pit it against the Zooka. Both speakers rock, but the Zooka edges it out in size, portability and sound. They cost the same price, but the Zooka may not be able at local retailers.

Review: The JBL Flip, Easily The Best Portable, Battery Powered Speaker We've Tested

 

If you're in the market for a small, portable speaker that has a lot of depth, this $99.00 speaker from JBL is worth the price, hands down.

JBL Flip Portable Bluetooth Speaker Review

 

The JBL Flip sounds much more clearer, louder and has more stereo depth to it compared to the equally priced $100 Logitech UE Mobile Boombox we reviewed not long ago. The Mobile Boombox sounds richer, fuller and a lot warmer compared to the Flip,...
