      Great little speaker!

      I have had this speaker for over a year. I bought the red one. Love the color! I like the fact that it has a built-in 3.5mm cable because I use this speaker mostly to listen to my older iPods that do not have Bluetooth capability. One less cord to carry around and worry about! The Bluetooth feature is nice, and it comes in handy for my Bluetooth-enabled devices. However, I do have trouble pairing the devices sometimes. I would have given this product 5 stars. But, I knocked off a star because of the following: 1. The instructions need a lot of improvement. They are basically just pictures. They need to be written out. 2. An auxiliary input should have been included as well as the 3.5mm cable. I can’t help accidentally pulling on the cable sometimes. This has resulted in interference/static sounds when I’m using the cable. But, if you are only using the Bluetooth, then this will not be an issue for you. Now that the Clip 3 is out, I recommend just buying that one because it is a better speaker and it does have an auxiliary input. Also, many retailers are selling the Clip 2 and Clip 3 for the same price, so you might as just well get the Clip 3.

      I use this speaker to listen to audiobooks for about two hours daily while hiking with my dog. I hang it off my treat bag's strap that I wear on my waist. The metal clip is big and beefy and a significant upgrade over the previous clips and hangers that were molded into the plastic speaker housing. The sound is rather colored, with pumped up lows & highs and recessed mids. There is unfortunately no way to get a flatter response like you can with the UE Roll 2 (via the UE Roll app). But if you're someone who likes this sound (90% of the population), then it's not something to worry about. There is a significant increase in volume compared to the JBL Micro Wireless I used before, and I can still hear it while walking under a busy bridge which I was never able to do before, so long as there isn't a vehicle with an especially loud exhaust doesn't roar by. I can even continue listening when moderately loud helicopters roar by, but not if they're too close or really loud. I really like being able to pause/resume play with the call button that's located between the volume up & down buttons. I have not used the call button to skip to the next track or used the speaker as a speakerphone for calls so I don't know how well it performs those functions. All in all, this speaker is in all aspects a significant upgrade from the Micro Wireless I used for the past one and a half years, and I'm thrilled with it.

      My car radio broke and to get a replacement was going to cost $400+, which I couldn't see investing in a 14 year old car. I don't like to drive long distances with only myself to talk and listen to...so I searched for a speaker that would allow me to play my cds or ipod. This little box has quite the power for the price. If you are really into your music, you probably want to look up stream at the Bose. I just wanted something that had good sound and an affordable price. I also bought the $20 Insignia, but decided it was worth the extra $10 to get this one. The sound was much better. I put it on the console with my ipod and I can listen to music, pod casts, or audio books. My only criticism is that the cord you plug into your ipod or cd player is built into the box and it is not long enough. That means that the speaker and device have to be fairly close to each other. It is not a big deal in the car, but when I want to clip the speaker to my back pack or bike, it makes it challenging to find a safe place for the ipod. Anyway - it works great. It's cute and the clip is nice. It actually holds a charge a lot longer than the 4 hours reported. I would buy it again.

      Good unit

      Good unit. Easy to get connected to my device. Sounds ok for a little mono speaker, it is what it is folks. Best used in a quieter environment. Audio sound is always subject to opinion. But I like the aduio on this speaker. Have no real idea on battery life I have used it in spurts anywhere from an hour to four or so hours run time and charge it every few days when I remember. I like and use the cable so I can use it with non BT devices. One tiny little LED by the clip that is on when charging and off when done. Other than that you have to listen for the tones to turn on or off and connect to BT. So simple operation. Not a lot of bells and whistles, I like the idea of the ability to connect multiple units together but in reality I will never use that feature, and find that very cost prohibitive. I bought my speaker on sale and feel that may have been a bit overpriced for what it is. Full price at $60.00 plus tax would be a different story and I would not have bought it. Sorry BB. my 2 cents.

      Reviews are extremely subjective. In this case, depending on what your expectations are, the review can range between good to poor. This speaker is "good" if your expectations are only to upgrade a tablet (in my case ipad) speaker. By upgrade I mean to allow the speaker to be placed away from the ipad, having a little more volumn with a slightly improved sound. On the other hand this review would be poor if you're expecting an enhanced quality in sound. It's a single speaker. The bluetooth works well, eliminating a messy wire situation. It comes with a USB charging cable. The cable length is short. so if you need to charge the speaker it must be within 8 inches of the usb hub. The charge lasts at least a good 8 hours. The unit itself feels solid in your hands and has a nice clip so you can attach it to whatever suits your fancy. Overall I would recommend this only if you're looking for a minor upgrade over your tablet speaker system.

      My friend is an outdoors type, and also appreciates technology and music. He opened this as a Christmas gift and immediately fired it up and synced with his phone. He got wide eyed and said, "That synced up quick!" After playing a song, considering its little side, he again got wide eyed and said, "That sounds so good!" A week later I stopped at a place he was working (he's a contractor) and what did he have there? The JBL Clip 2 playing music! I commented on it and he just smiled and said, "Yeah, I bring it to work every day." He also looks forward to utilizing its waterproof-ness by taking it along on his stand-up paddle board adventures. Great product. One little side benefit is he loves the color combo. He commented on that multiple times. (he got the standard black with a splash of orange)

      Does a lot, but price is steep for mono sound

      This unit is really great in the fact that you can pair two of them together but the cost is a little high for one much less two. There are other cheaper alternatives out there and some phones can build a wireless sound system out of multiple Brands and types of bluetooth speakers without the need of one speaker only being able to connect to the same brand and type of speaker by another manufacturer. The sound is a little bit more tinny then the previous model however the previous model the JBL Micro Wireless while a very good speaker with auxiliary had a dial volume knob and no waterproofing. This speaker improves on everything except for sound. It's still just a rubberized mono speaker. Also the color red is more of a coral than a red.

      Went to Hawaii and there was some beach time with adult beverages, great views and favorite tunes from my MP3 player . The JBL came through like a champ. Between it's volume control and the volume on the MP3 player, we had plenty to go around and another nearby umbrella was enjoying our mix. It will take the volume you choose to test it's limits without distorting or feeling that half the volume control is a waste because of overload. Sounded great in our hotel room and makes a tidy little package to pack. The carabiner clip let us hang it on the inside of the beach umbrella and my wife's favorite color is RED. It has it's own built in audio cord that taps into your iPod or MP3--- it's a tad short so I added an after market extra length to it. The built in battery takes a nice charge through the USB cord that's included. Great little package....
