JBL Flip Speaker: Even Bieber Would Sound Good On This Thing

JBLFlip1So I’ve had this speaker about a month now, and I’ve gotta say..it’s blown me away. It’s one of JBL’s newest entries into the portable bluetooth speaker market that can go head to head with Jawbone’s Jambox……but at almost half the price. The sound quality on this is amazing, and you really have to hear it to believe it. Grab some more details after the break. the JBL flip is just over 6″ tall and feels extremely well built. One end has a rubber foot so it can stand up tall. On the back, there are two rubber feel to keep the speaker firing up when laying on its side. At the the other end of the speaker are a few buttons: power button with red/blue LED ring, volume control, and a speaker phone button (built in mic lets you use it for phone calls or skype sessions).

JBL claims this speaker fully charged has a 5 hour battery life, and I can definitely vouch for them there. I was amazed at how long it lasted, even playing it pretty loud. The box comes packed with the speaker, and nice neoprene carrying case, and charger. While they don’t include a 3.5mm headphone wire, you can use one to plug in a non-bluetooth media player for playback as well.

This speaker retails for about $99 and is well worth it. Oh, and iLounge.com named this guy their 2013 Speaker of the Year and the iLounge accessory of the year.
