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 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 with 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...

It tells you nothing about this little gem. I was in the Apple Store recently listening 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. …

Great Sound; Poor Battery
This device produces great sound and I love how loud it can get. However, the battery life is right around 4-5 hours which doesn't This device produces great sound and I love how loud it can get. However, the battery life is right around 4-5 hours which doesn't even get me through a full work day. It's also a little difficult getting the hang of connecting it to your bluetooth devices. If you're wanting a good device for it's sound, BUY IT. If you want a device for the maneuverability and battery life, don't buy it. …

Bluetooth Does Not Connect to 5s - "Devices Searching"
I purchased this speaker about 8 months ago when I had an iPhone 4. I loved it. It was really easy to use, the sound was fantasti I purchased this speaker about 8 months ago when I had an iPhone 4. I loved it. It was really easy to use, the sound was fantastic and I very much enjoyed listening to my music from my phone with ease. I recently purchased the iPhone 5s and it will not connect to my JBL FLIP. When I turn on my bluetooth it simply says "devices searching," eventually drains my battery and never connects. The product description claims it's compatible with both devices, but unfortunately that was not the case for me. …

Sounds great, but volume will only go so low
This is a great little speaker for larger rooms. If you're looking for something for an office like I was, this will blow you out This is a great little speaker for larger rooms. If you're looking for something for an office like I was, this will blow you out of the room. My only issue, if you can even call it that, was that the volume will only go so low before muting, it was just too loud for my office and will have to return it. Other than that, this speaker is awesome, great sound! Would highly recommend if you're looking for some loud awesome sound. …
