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...
...by the lack of a decent product photo. It tells you nothing about this little gem. I was in the Apple Store recently listenin ...by the lack of a decent product photo. 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. …
