    Great design and function

    I couldn’t be more delighted w this product. The product design is very well thought out. The device is pleasing to the touch and pleasant to see sitting in one’s room. The speaker makes a cool /happy noise upon turning it on. My budget only allowed for this size. So I wonder if double the price and size would have made me exponentially happier. But I have no complaints about the speaker. I never turn it to full volume. I use it within my apartment and it’s volume is fine and the sound is clear, crisp quality.

    I was looking for a speaker my dad could use for the beach and the pool and this speaker has the best of both worlds. The flip 4 really wins as being one of the best speakers out there because it’s not only water proof the battery is also amazing. I can listen to the flip 4 after fully charging it and the The battery lasts me about 6 to 8 hours at full volume before I have to charge it again. The flip 4 has and IP7 rating. This means the Flip 4 should be able to sit in up to six feet of water for a half hour without getting damaged. Overall the flip 4 is an amazing speaker and everyone should go out and get it!!!

    Although I'm not doing speaker reviews anymore I was so impressed by the JBL Flip 4 that I had to write a little something. The Xiaomi Mi has been my go-to BT speaker. It has really great sound; especially for the size. Sadly I accidentally played some frequency test tones at high volume and my Xiaomi Mi was blown. After 3 days of only having laptop speakers I was fed up. I needed something better. Good things have been written about the JBL Flip 3, and I always wanted to give it a try. Now the 4 is out and I hear it's even better! Being desperate for quality sound I bought o

    Good sound, great concept of linking them together, but too many hiccups with the Bluetooth chain and app. Speakers fight over which one is the dominant speaker and difficult to switch among other Bluetooth devices. Must restart apps because of inability for device to reconnect seamlessly. Doesn’t recognize both speakers when using two units. Significant lag when pairing with TV. Maybe a great product in terms of the simple using of a Bluetooth speakers, but other than that the admins are a hassle and not worth the money. Overall good sound.

    Amazing Sound

    This is my first JBL product and I must say I'm not disappointed. I read through tons of reviews and decided to go with the positive. I bought it to use on a family cruise. It packs quite a punch and the sound is amazing, clear and with great bass/treble. My only issue is with speakers on both ends you have to lay it horizontal and prop it somehow to get the best audio. Other than that, I'm okay with this purchase and won't hesitate to buy another JBL product!

    Powerful Little Speaker with Options

    I honestly have been pleasantly surprised at the sound quality of this little speaker. While it won't reach the lowest bass frequencies, it still gets a bulk of the work done and outshines much of the rest of the market with its dual bass radiators that are separated from the tweeters. The battery life is more than ample for most settings, and I enjoy having the ability to pair multiple JBL speakers together, if I should choose to.

    I bought it for an overseas trip since it’s small enough to put In carry on luggage. I brought it to a Christmas gathering recently and it works perfectly. Not too expensive and the sound it great especially when you’re not trying to blast your neighbors away. Ha! And it was easy to operate. I’m not technically inclined so I appreciate the simplicity. I also love the easy battery charger. I have a different speaker and it needs an outlet to recharge. This lets me hook it up to any phone charger including my cordless one. The sales guy did a good job recommending this one. Thanks.

    Just got it - and WOW.

    I tend to be a late adopter of tech and keep stuff for a lonnnng time. This is replacing a set of Bose speakers I've had for about 8 years, and WOW. I'm SO impressed. It's good and loud, nice frequency range, plays most kinds of music really, REALLY well. As others have mentioned, not a lot of bass, so be aware of that - and it does fall a tiny bit flat on classical music with a lot of nuances - but for the indie rock stuff I usually listen to, this is a really great speaker for the money. I'm hugely impressed, and did not expect to be. I'll be buying more of these!

    Decent Speaker but bad Stereo pairing mode.

    • My Best Buy® Member

    Decent sound but the Stereo Mode (Two Speakers) is glitchy, takes too long to setup and doesn't let you set it as Default. The Stereo Mode doesn't work with Laptops, only Phones/ Tablets. User's documentation is lacking / shallow, so you are on your own exploring how to properly use these speakers. Also there is no speaker battery status on the phone, all cheaper BT speakers / headphones I've used shows battery status. One speaker came defective since had issues reproducing certain high frequency sounds.

    Best quality for the price

    I had bought a Flip 4 right when it came out, after comparing reviews of UE Boom, Bose, and other JBL models. I chose this because of the sound quality makes you think it's a huge shelf speaker yet so portable, plus it's waterproof. I just bought another one in an awesome blue color in the store because I can easily link the two to one phone and have them play in unison, or just the R or L output for true stereo performance (needs JBL app to do this). At a recent party, even borrowed a third JBL Charge 4 and all were in sync, filling up the room with same music from one cell phone.

    I bought this for my son & daughter-in-law and ask them to review it. Here's what they said. "That thing really pumps out sound!! It is loud and the quality is amazing. It is also durable, I think Matt would agree we wouldn't think twice about taking it outside with us or on an adventure. Those things are meant to be taken with you. Our neighbor has one that is always outside with them, next to the fire, in the rain, kids playing with it...its awesome and the reason we wanted that speaker! Thanks for getting that for us, we love it already (ESPECIALLY the turquoise color!)"

    Perfect addition to Disk TV

    As an senior citizen I have a minor hearing problem and often turned the volume up to hear my TV. Seems that when commercials came on the volume was always ranked up and was blasting us out of the house. So I looked for a better solution (I don’t need hearing aids). We have Disk TV services which include Bluetooth. I purchased a JBL speaker and paired it to my dish receiver without a problem. The speaker sits next to my chair and allows me to hear the tv with out bothering others. This was a perfect solution. I love it!

    Fantastic speaker for the money. I’m very pleased with the speaker for the amount of money spent on it. I read a lot of reviews and listen to them in the store. If I’d spent more I know I’ve could’ve gotten better sound. But in this price range I don’t think you can top it. Bonus to be able to keep it poolside without having to worry about the water. Adequate clean base without disturbing the treble and md range

    I bought this JBL Flip4 in gray on Jan 7th 2018 after previously buying a black flip4. Love the sound and volume on this speaker. Pretty cool setup with two of them in the shop. Only down fall is it lasted three months, now it wont turn on or do anything. Pretty crappy from such a popular company. Have not been able to get help with this item being defective, going to try again tomorrow. I didn't get the extended warranty on this one like I did the black one, go figure right...

    I was skeptical about this speaker after having several other "waterproof" bluetooth speakers. When I turned this one on, it honestly suprised me. For such a small speaker, the bass is present but not super punchy, as you would expect. The highs and lows are clear, and it gets pretty loud without affecting the sound quality. That being said, the one thing I do not like about it is that it is round. It can be set on its side, but if it is placed appropriately, there is a tendency to roll.

    Got if for my son for Christmas, he loves it. It was mostly charged up out of the box so he used it soon after opening the gift. It took a bit to get it to connect via Bluetooth but it did eventually, no problems afterwards. Sound to my ear was surprisingly nice for such as small package. They're not Martin Logans but they do sound pretty nice for sound on the go. The box they came in also can be used as a carrying case (it's padded and magnetically closes) so that was a nice touch.

    I intentionally purchase this Bluetooth speaker for the days at the beach. The sound good at the beach. Enough to get funny looks when your surroundings do not agree with your choice of music. But these speakers really shine in the Bathroom or small Bed Room. I use this speaker at least 3 times a week when I am shaving or cleaning the house. ( I Live in a Small Apartment in Brooklyn). These speakers bump nicely with no distortion what so ever. I recharge the speaker probably once a month.
