    I have the JBL on stage 3P, which has more power and twice number of speaker and this little guy sounds better. Totally worth the 100 bucks to be wireless, although it definitely does not last 5 hours on a charge, more like 3.

    Absolutely brilliant

    • Written by from WEMBLEY

    I bought my first JBL speakers in 1981. At that time, most music I listended to was mastered using JBL studio monitors and always sounded superb on other JBL speakers. Now I travel a lot for work and have much of my music collection on my laptop. But listening on headphones is just not quite the same, is it....so I lwent searching for the best bluetooth portable speakers for me....

    The Apple Stores I visited don't typically demo the JBL Flips. Having now purchased and listened to them, the reason why is clear. They would never sell the more expensive Jambox nor Dr Beats pill if they did! The JBLs are SO far in front on musical quality, it is a joke! That JBL can make them for $99 is both miraculous and a gift to anyone who wants top musical quality from a lighweight, portable speak at a reasonable price. And it comes with a carry case too. JBL focus on making make speakers, and always good ones...these are no exception. Sure, some look more trendy (but the JBLs are nice too), and others have a deeper base, but none I have listened to come close for overall musical quality.

    At least try them - you won't regret it!

    This thing has INCREDIBLE sound and works perfectly with my iPhone and iPad. Exceptional quality and exceptional sound. Very happy with my purchase! Makes watching movies or shows on my Ipad so much more incredible because of the huge amount of sound and detail it puts out. And don't get me started on playing music from my iPhone - Amazing!!!

    It's lousy. don't buy it.

    • Written by from Halifax

    Sounds great for about the first hour then scratchy then refuses to join the network it worked on yesterday. Website support is useless. I'd return this product but it's too much trouble to figure it out on the website. I will never buy a JBL product again. Thought I could trust Apple to retail good products, but they're about as trustworthy as Walmart.

    Bluetooth cuts off...

    • Written by from La Junta

    I've had this product about a month and while it seem to work okay at first, now the Bluetooth connection continually cuts off after about a minute or two. I'm sure this is a problem of the JBL Flip speaker because 1) my other speakers work well with connected to the same phone, and 2) other reviewers have mentioned the same problem. Too bad because like other reviewers I am impressed by the sound quality.

    excellent little speaker

    • Written by from Littleton

    It;s amazing how good (and how loud) this speaker is. I've seen some reviews mention blue tooth connection problems. I've had no problems when I'm connected by my iPhone 5, but some dropped connections when using my first generation iPad. I recommend this speaker.

    First, I can't believe this speaker is not advertised on the wireless speaker page of the Apple Store...you have look it up in the search box. I have the Bose Soundlink which sounds Great...but then I also bought the Shocbox which was a dismal speaker. The Shocbox had a great theory on it's design, but failed miserably on sound and pairing. Now, I just got my new JBL Flip, which is clear, loud and nicely designed. It is not as loud as my Bose, but again for it's size it is quite impressive. I wanted a very portable speaker for school, as I am a PE teacher at an elementary school so my kids and I could have music wherever we go on the playground. Super sound at a very reasonable price. You can't go wrong with this speaker and I highly recommend the JBL Flip!

    Bluetooth works about 25% of the time

    • Written by from Watsonville

    The sound of this little speaker is fantastic, but the vast majority of the times I try to use it, it fails to connect to my computer, even when it's sitting 10 inches away. There seems to be no rhyme or reason to this inconsistency. If you're going to buy this product (the sound and small size make it worthwhile), purchase a speaker connector so you can make a hardwire connection between it and your iPhone, computer, or whatever.

    bluetooth problems

    • Written by from Toronto

    I'm also experiencing problems with the bluetooth cutting out. If I have my iphone in my pocket and just turn away from the speaker, or put my hand over my pocket, it skips... I see others have this problem, but does anyone not have this issue?
    I am thinking of returning it, but if the problem is limited to a subset of units, perhaps I should exchange it and try another unit.
    The sound is fantastic and the small footprint is great, so I am considering keeping it and simply leaving my phone beside it while using it - but this sort of defeats the purpose.

    Excellent portable speaker!

    Thanks to JBL for making an excellent product. Blows the Jawbone Jambox mini away in sound, loudness, styling and only 2/3 the price of the overpriced Jawbone..

    Good sound but with issues

    • Written by from Clementon

    I thought this would be a good Bluetooth speaker but when I actualy gave it a whirl not so good first of all I had issues with skipping sounds and then crackling then the Bluetooth range is very limited. Not recommended
    The sound is ok if you hardware it but what's the sense also no micro USB charger that's even worse

    Great so Far

    • Written by from Oakvlille

    Just arrived in the mail today. It has been great so far, couple skips but seemed to work great after a few tries.

    Will update the review if anything changes.

    Didn't work with my iPad mini...

    • Written by from Port Moody

    Got it for Christmas. It worked fine with my iPod. Great sound. But it did not work with my iPad mini. So I went back to the Apple Store. I've tried with a different package. It was same. iPad mini didn't recognize JBL Flip. So I had to return it. Too bad... BTW, at the Apple Store, the person who was helping me tried to connect her iPad with JBL Flip. It didn't work either.

    Problems with JBL Flip

    • Written by from Matthews

    The Bluetooth would only synch with iPod5 and not accept iPad 2nd generation nor the iPhone 4. The other problem was songs and audiobooks would skip while playing even when the Flip was less than 10 ft away from from the iPod. There is a video review on Youtube made recently that shows the skip problem. I am returning this product and contacting JBL about the problems.

    pleasant surprise

    • Written by from Woodbridge

    Turning this thing on definitely made my mouth drop. The clarity and volume this flip produces is worth mentioning. However, the bluetooth is horrible.

    But...for $99 you can't complain

    What a bluetooth speaker should sound like!

    • Written by from Foothill Ranch

    I've listen to them all including the Bose Soundlink and nothing sounds as good as the JBL Flip.Hands down the best.Long battery life,easy to connect and good distance. This speaker is also loud and very clear at it's loudest.Good base and great highs.Forget the $200 Foxl and check this out for under a hundred.You will be happy with this one.Better get it at this price because JBL is catching on to it's popularity .I've seen it for $129 elsewhere.
