JBL Flip 4 review


JBL's life-proof Flip 4 is durable, affordable, and perfect for all kinds of outdoor excursions.

Take it anywhere ; Durable, waterproof shell ; Powerful bass response ; Good battery life ; Cool connectivity features

Middling clarity in upper register ; Doesn’t play well with other speakers (yet)

The Flip 4 doesn’t reinvent the wheel – or even reupholster it – but it’s a solid upgrade to an already-strong line of speakers from JBL. There are plenty of wireless speakers, gobs of affordable ones, and plenty of waterproof ones, too, but few...

JBL Flip 4


The JBL Flip 4 speaker delivers strong Bluetooth audio from its modest, waterproof frame.

Solid audio performance with rich bass and well-defined highs. Can be submerged in shallow water.

No track navigation buttons. Audio cable not included.

What more can you really ask of a portable $100 speaker? The JBL Flip 4 delivers solid audio performance and can get wet without any issues, making it a pool-friendly, outdoor-ready option. If your main priority is a rugged build, however, there are...

JBL Flip 4 Bluetooth speaker review: Better-than-expected sound in a compact, waterproof enclosure


$100 isn't chickenfeed, but this small speaker sounds like it should cost a lot more.

Sounds great with all kinds of music ; IPX7 water resistance ; Two can be configured as a stereo pair

No AC adapter included ; No track forward/back controls

JBL Flip 4 Bluetooth speaker Review


Promising waterproof operation, a rugged, rubberized build, and the ability to deliver hours and hours of party-fueling tunes, the JBL Flip 4 sure looks like it hits all the notes we're looking for. Does the portable speaker meet all its potential?...

Water-resistant, rugged (and colorful) design ; Good sound quality, decent volume output ; Voice-assistant support a nice feature ; Battery-life indicator keeps you ahead of recharges

Bass could use a little more “oomph” ; Extra JBL Connect+ features have limited compatibility ; Can't use voice-assistant button and pause button simultaneously

Review: JBL Flip 4 | Bass Heavy Party Speakers JBL Flip 4


Perhaps Flip means that this bass heavy party speaker is giving the competitors the finger?

Can be stereo connected or operated in party modes. Sturdy and durable. Unusually powerful bass.

No possibilities of fine tuning the sound. The sound lacks finesse for more finely tuned music.

JBL Flip 4 Review: The New Sub-$100 Speaker King


With the improvements JBL made to the Flip 4, you no longer need to choose between sound quality and features in a $100 Bluetooth speaker. You can have it all.

Excellent bass, treble and midtones for a small speaker ; Good battery life ; Waterproof

Distorts at high volumes ; Limited functionality in app

The JBL Flip 4 improves on an already-solid speaker line, adding more battery life, more ruggedness and better sound.

JBL Flip 4


The JBL Flip 4 is a small Bluetooth speaker with excellent water resistance and a frame willing to put up with plenty of abuse. It's a compelling alternative to the UE Wonderboom.
