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.

Crystal Clear Sound Take it Everywhere
I have the Bose Sound Dock II which is an excellent party device and beats most to all other sounddocks. I'm a music connoisseur ( well...itunes Top 100) and the Bose are amazing but a little big logistically to take on every vacation; so I improvised to have another option for hot tubing, golfing, fishing, beaching etc. Something that won't make me cry if it does get damaged because for the price I will just buy another one, and it is actually better than the JamBox.
I was more than impressed when I paired this Flip with the iPhone. Highly recommend it. …

I decided to get a portable speaker because after all, it is a pain to deal with cables and it is nice to have your phone/iPod tou ch on you at all times. So I took a leap of faith with this smaller speaker and couldn't be happier that I did! It is so easy to take with me to my sons baseball practices and to the beach.It is loud and the range for the bluetooth is decently far. I walked maybe 20 feet away and it was still playing well. If you're in the market for a small speaker that isn't too expensive and you like the idea of portability, this is the one for you! The battery life is also awesome. …

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 :) …

yes it is.
It works same as regular bluetooth phone calls where you see your audio options to swi tch device. But the pain point is, the JBL (Or any mic/speaker device) should be closer to your ipad/iphone while doing facetime/skype calls. This is how I used it.
I called my parents in facetime while my iphone is connected to JBL. You will see audio options in place where you have mute button. (bottom left) When you select that you can either choose "speaker" which used ipad/iphones speaker and mic, or choose JBL then it used JBL's speaker and mic.
The speaker is not right next to me but within 3 feet away from where I was sitting. While I could hear my parents alright, they said my voice lagged when I spoke. I switched my audio to "Speaker" then they could hear me alright.
I wish I could use iphone/ipad mic alone instead of JBL's mic and speaker coz you will have to keep both phone and speaker closer to you when you speak to avoid lag. I do skype calls from my samsung TV where I sit atleast 5-6 feet away from my TV, and never had voice lag.
Great speaker for the price your pay.
Hope this helps. …
