The JBL Flip portable speaker streams stereo music wirelessly from any Bluetooth-equipped iPad, iPhone, iPod, or other device.
Built-in bass port
Some portable speakers struggle to produce bass, but not JBL FLIP. Using a built-in bass port, the speakers generate big bass that's superior to comparable portable products.
Digital signal processing
The JBL Flip employs digital signal processing to generate room-filling audio with great bass from a compact speaker.
Built-in microphone and call-answer button
Not all of the sounds from the JBL Flip come from your music. There's a microphone and a call-answer button so you can answer phone calls from the speaker.
Five-hour, Li-ion rechargeable battery
The built-in Li-ion rechargeable battery provides up to five hours of playback time. You can easily recharge the battery using the adapter, which saves you battery hassles and money.
Versatile, portable design
The JBL Flip stereo speaker plays from either a vertical or horizontal position, so you can place it in a variety of locations. And it fits easily into a backpack, so you can take it from one place to the next.
A clearly visible LED lets you know when the built-in battery needs to be recharged, as well as when the JBL Flip is in Bluetooth listening or pairing mode.

Ratings & Reviews
Brilliant Speaker with essential feature missing (for me and maybe others)
I read glowing reviews of this online, and I have to say the sound lives up to them. I can't believe this thing can fill my room w ith clear, non-distorted sound.
The problem - this is a portable speaker, you're meant to take it on the road. The battery life is middling (5 hours stated, nowhere near it) and that would be fine except there's no USB port to charge it with. So, every time you need to charge, it's old-school mains adapter time. I don't want to carry an extra mains adapter in an age where everything except my macbook charges off USB. Every other Bluetooth speaker I've seen has a mini USB charging port, and I'm certain the second version of this will.
I'm taking it back, but if this doesn't bother you, it's an amazing sound, easy pairing and great design …

Don't be put off...
...by the lack of a decent product photo. It tells you nothing about this little gem. I was in the Apple Store recently listenin g to another small speaker for my iPad and discussing its sound quality with another potential buyer. Meanwhile, an Apple salesperson was fiddling around with the bluetooth setup of this speaker and his iPhone. When the sound came through the JBL, the other customer and I were very pleasantly surprised. Wow! Crisp, and deep sound that took command of the open environment. Think of what it would sound like in my space. We both bought one. I dig it so much, I'm buying another as a X-mas present. …

Believe the hype
I was looking for a speaker that sounded good and was semi portable. I wasn't sure about this speaker at first because it wasn't s etup at the store to test out. I got it home and it sounds great, don't let the looks fool you. I thought it was going to be a flat sounding portable speaker. But what this is a rich sounding portable speaker. You can't go wrong with this speaker if you are looking for a small portable speaker that has decent sound. …

Sounds Great When it Wants to
I had high hopes of this speaker after all the great reviews it got. But when I got home and tried it out it was horrible. After c harging it for 3 hours, the speaker sounded low and muffled as if it had been submerged in water. I gave it the benefit of the doubt and hoped that I just gotten the bad one of the bunch and exchanged it for another. The second one wouldn't connect at all to my MacBook, or iPad. I finally got it to work on my phone and it sounded great (which is why I gave it two stars) but it would skip parts of the song or glitch too much making it hard to enjoy the music. I wouldn't recommend it at all unfortunately. …

Great product ! Worth to buy
I got it today, bought it IDR 1,300,000 or its about $130 in Indonesia, I decided to returned my JBL micro ( slightly cheaper $ 80 in indonesia ) and chose JBL flip as replacement, personally compared to JBL micro, JBL flip have more deep bass, clear sound, and loud, plus easy to connect to any Bluetooth device and i don't have any issues with the Bluetooth connection. With 3 hours charged the battery last exactly for 5 hours. I wish it could be more than 5 hours.. …

I just bought the JBL FLIP with a goal of pairing with my iphone and macbook pro.
However the iphon e paired easily but the macbook pro would not, the wheel kept spinning looking for a device. I finally gave up and decided to head back to the Apple store. First I went to my barber for a haircut and was discussing the pairing problem. He had a bluetooth device (not JBL)and the instructions said the hold down the on/off switch until you see the pairing take place. I went home and tried this and it worked. I can now pair to my iphone and macbook pro. I have to say that the instructions for the JBL are horrible. Shame on them. So to pair just click on the bluetooth inon on the top bar then click on "Set up Bluetooth device" - Now turn on the JBL and hold the power button down until you see the message on the laptop that the JBL FLIP is paired. Now enjoy the sound from the JBL. Hope this helps. And thanks to my barber :) …
