    Can't go wrong with JBL!

    • Written by from goleta

    I bought this for my mom for christmas this year and she can't seem to put it down! She had been asking for a nice PORTABLE speaker for her iPhone and she said this is perfect. As far as sound goes, it will not disappoint! It gets pretty loud considering its size (which is not much bigger than a soda can!). The bluetooth works exceptionally well. It has a very clean, and sleek look. My only complaint is that when you aren't listening to is beautiful audio it makes a buzzing noise which isn't a very big deal but it can be somewhat annoying, I understand that some speakers do that but it can just get on your nerves a little bit. Besides that I love this speaker and it was one of my moms favorite gifts this year!

    AWESOME

    Bought this as a Christmas gift for myself and all I have to say is that this thing blows the Beats Pill out of the water....Bass is on point with this thing and the music just sounds awesome.

    Good for on the go

    Its amazing that this little speaker can play so loudly, while also sounding so clear. It kept everyone engaged and was a great addition to our family's annual camping trip.

    Seriously weak bluetooth connection??

    • Written by from Calgary

    Just bought a JBL Flip. Absolutely LOVE the sound. BEST of all mobile speakers we've tried and a steal at $99! But the bluetooth connection is seriously weak (useless)! Anyone else has problem their Flip's bluetooth connection? A wall or a thin door will cause the Flip some dropouts in data causing skips in audio! The crazy thing is if I put my body in between my phone and the JBL Flip, it causes drop out already!!! In contrast, a first gen Logitech mini boombox doesn't sound as good as the Flip, but it has no problem sending signals pass 2-3 walls perfectly! Does anyone else have problem with their Flip's bluetooth connection? I am hoping I just have a defective unit but I don't know ...

    awesome little thing!

    • Written by from scarborough

    this speaker will give you a blast, better than the jambox or the dr. dre beats pill. value and sound at its best. totally worth it, totally surprised by the great sound it gives. you can't go wrong with this purchase. the bose soundlink wins the pack but at $300-plus, most will find it too pricey. for $99, the jbl flip takes the cake...

    Great!

    • Written by from Laguna Niguel

    I would give this a 5 if it had a USB cable/port. Sound is awesome! Returned an iHome speaker for this. iHome products are terrible, don't buy them! JBL has a history in audio and it shows.

    Impressed!

    • Written by from Eagleville

    I bought the Flip because I needed a smaller speaker and I don't care too much for wires everywhere. I wasn't sure what to expect out of the bluetooth technology but have definitely been impressed! My nephew kept borrowing it whenever he came over and so I've decided to buy him and his sister one for the holidays. Luckily, the price isn't too high so it's a fun and affordable gift.

    Much better than the Jambox

    • Written by from Evans Mills

    I agree with the other reviewers...this little gem has much better sound than the Jambox! And looks better too - the jambox looks like a cheap lego piece!

    Don't be put off...

    • Written by from New York

    ...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.

    kills the jambox

    • Written by from Kansas City

    this speaker is the best of the small bluetooth speaker,bar none. i think i know audio and i have done alot of research. granted its not my macintoch/thorens/jbl or the klipsch 5 way on my computer, but i wanted something portable with no distortion. i hate distortion!!!!!!!! i own a jambox, what a disappointment!!! THIS IS SO MUCH BETTER THAN THE JAMBOX. SO IF YOU WANT GOOD SOUND IN A SMALL PACKAGE, TRY THIS ONE I KNOW YOU WILL AGREE. $99. CHEAPER THAN THE BEST PRICE ON A JAMBOX

    Brilliant Speaker with essential feature missing (for me and maybe others)

    • Written by from New York

    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

    Best Little Speaker

    • Written by from Boston

    I bought to take with me when going to the beach. I've owned for 2 week and works great. You will not be disappointed with this purchase. It was highly rated by other websites.
