    Mixed feelings

    Bought to use at work, as we could listen to our own music in our area. After just a couple weeks, the charger stopped working. After a little over a month, the longest charge it’d hold would be at most 6 hours. Odd thing is, it works great at home and seems to stay on up near the 12 hour “limit.” For the light colour, it doesn’t “dirty up” all that much. Which was something I was worried about after I started using it. While it started disappointing me in the beginning, I’m still glad I purchased it. It’s a complicated love/hate.

    ALWAYS BUY THE 2 YEAR WARRENTY! BEST BUY IS THE BEST! I would like to start by saying DO NOT BUY THE JBL FLIP 4! THE SPEAKERS CRACKLE! The charge 3 is amazing! THE JBL CHARGE 3 SOUNDS PERFECT! I just wish it could link more than 2 speakers. Other than that no complaints. It has great sound quality. Long battery life, and it charges phones. I've found that it doesnt charge my galaxy with fast charge that well though. It charges my smart watch on the go very quickly. ALWAYS BUY THE 2 YEAR WARRANTY!

    I've read and seen some reviews online where people complain about the bass but let me tell you this little speaker packs a punch and then some I've taken this with me along for some party bus use, used it when I'm showering to play some tunes and it does not disappoint vocals sound clear has some good bass and can fill a room with your awesome playlist for this price you can't go wrong it's water resistant too but it doesn't float so keep that in mind, but if you're at the beach and it catches some water or rain you're good to go

    A powerful sound for a compact speaker

    Let me begin my saying I am not a speaker person but I needed one for when I am listening to music or having a few friends over. This speaker fulfills both roles and is so loud I can even have a party. This speaker has an incredible sound just like a stereo set and is so small that I can carry it anywhere! It is value for money . I actually did go in store and compared it to the Bose Sound Link and this JBL has a much louder volume and is also clearer sound and for the price, you can not go wrong.

    I live in a townhouse with open floor concept and wanted a speaker system that would play and fill my entire bottom floor without spending sonos money. bought two of these and they performed so well I am about to buy one more. sound is excellent for the size and its easily spread from my kitchen living sitting and dining room once the speakers have clear line of sight to each other. 3 hundred dollars to do what would have costed me double for sonos. I added insignia wall chargers so they are left on and a tablet to control them and its great!

    The speaker came well packaged. Need to charge first, though there was some juice in it. I tried it to be sure it worked for maybe 1 minute then put it on charge. The next day I started it up connected with my Phone via Bluetooth. BEAUTIFUL music with great clarity and sound in a variety of rooms. Easy to travel with over the last 4 months giving great pleasure when you would rather listen without earphones or headphones. Highly recommended.

    love the sound, but buy the warranty

    I received my 1st flip as a gift and love, love, loved it … then it acted up about 16 months later, but thankfully my friend bought the warranty … and so it began … I believe I am on my 5th flip, I had the 1st version twice. I still love the sound, and I am not hard on this device at all, but each one only seems to last just 1 1/2 to 2 years before something goes wrong… so although the Best Buy warranty is not as good of a deal as it used to be … it is a MUST with this device.

    This is a great addition to my laptop and smartphone to better be able to hear movies and Skype/Zoom type sessions. Not as clear and rich a sound as I would like and this may be my other devices as much as this device. Also a little trick to figure out how to keep it on and get to connect to some devices, but I think I have that all worked out. Glad I bought it and would buy it again. Not bad for $99 and I am too cheap to pay more for better quality sound.

    I needed a speaker since my old dinosaur ones finally gave out and was looking for something loud and easy to carry. The sound is amazing and clear , and it's super easy to connect with blue tooth. a plus is that it is waterproof so perfect for pool parties, rivers beach ect.. although I suggest a bigger one if you will be putting it in water. Battery life is honestly really good can't complain ! Great speaker great sound cool colors to choose from. I am definitely going to buy another since my sister likes it so much she took it

    I bought this for a couple of reason, JBL manufacture history , design, and being waterproof. I wanted something to use around my hot tub, so waterproof, but have used it all over. I enjoy having my music with me when I am working outside, and earbuds always seem to get in the way. I can connect this to bluetooth on my phone and work all over my yard, with my phone no where near, stays connected. I can take this across and upstairs in my house connected to phone, with no issues about connectivity. Excellent.

    Not that loud compared to the old

    I love music and I love Jawbone speakers but boy have they changed. My redbox jawbone is on its last legs after about 7 years. It still plays but the Bluetooth feature isn’t working so I bought the flip 4 and it is no where as loud. I kept it bc I love jawbone and I figure it would make a good travel speaker. Although I got in trouble at the Omni bc they said it was “loud”.So I guess depending on ur age you may consider the speaker to be loud.

    Small Size, Big Sound

    I recently purchased this for my teenage daughter as she needed a portable speaker that she could take on trips with her - it had to be small enough to stick into a backpack, waterproof to withstand splashes by the pool and deliver a powerful sound. I have purchased numerous other more expensive portable speakers in the past (Bose, Pioneer, others) but after hearing my daughter use it, I must say that I am going to buy another one for my own use! Small size, big sound for certain!

    Daughters Phone was a noise maker

    My daughter would play her phone in the bathroom all the time. The noise that came out of that otter box wrapped I-phone was ear piercing. I bought the flip 4 for her to connect too and the music took on a hole new sound. The mid range and highs were crisp and clear, I could actually understand the words. The bass was incredible out of this little unit. Water proof a plus too. This speaker was put to the test right away with a dunking in the sink and shower. Nice unit unbelievable sound from such a small unit

    Good sound but sleep mode is a problem.

    Posted
    Rick

    Bought speaker to use as a monitor for a musical instrument for a high school band. Had to have store open package to determine that the speaker has a aux. input. Using the input because any lag would be unacceptable. The speaker has good sound but goes to sleep after a few seconds of silence. When play starts again the first note is not heard. Should be some way to disable the sleep mode. We cannot use the speaker as intended. Will have to find something else.

      Thank you for your review. Most of our portable speakers feature a power saving mode which will automatically turn the speaker off within 8-10 minutes without any activity. This is to conserve the battery life. And no-there is no option to disable this feature. Our sincerest apology for the inconvenience. JBL

    Bluetooth JBL Speaker

    The JBL purchase was for a Bluetooth speaker to be used with my computer at my desk in my office. I would have preferred for the speaker to have plugged into an electrical source and was more static. However, for my purposes, and its price, this is an excellent speaker. In the box, it came with a USB cable. Its Bluetooth portability means, as necessary, I could take it with me for presentations in smaller sized rooms.

    I purchased 2 of the JBL Flip 4's with intentions of connecting the speakers together with others. I am thoroughly pleased with the sound quality of the "little" speakers. They don't have the 360 degree sound of the UE speakers, but the punch is nice and the mid and high levels are clear. The JBL connect feature is nice to pair them with my group (Extreme 2, Flip 4, and Pulse). This has added to a nice portable sound system for me.

    I was looking for a bluetooth speaker that could pair up with one or more speakers. These are capable of connecting up to 100. This speaker has great sound. I am a little disappointed in the range. A review that I read said it had a great range,and it worked several rooms away from the music source, but when I moved it to the next room it started getting distorted and cutting out. I don't know if the age of the device makes a difference or not, I was using an older ipod.

    I like the color, durability and construction of it. It is also pretty loud for how small it is. I use it at work everyday for a minimum of 10 hours a day and on a single charge it last me about 5hrs when I play it at Max volume......but when I play it half volume then it tends to last me about 8hrs sometimes longer. I've have it in the rain and it works great still. I also use it when making phone calls and it works great.

    Too many portable speakers to choose from so I read a lot of product reviews. This speaker rated really high so I bought one. Very impressed with the sound and how high the volume will go. The battery life seems geat. I'm considering buying another identical speaker because as good as this sounds in a 20' x 20' room I can imagine adding another speaker and having them seperated across the room will give it a much better stereo sound. The size is almost identical to a typical 16 oz. water bottle.

    Great little speaker

    Great little speaker that has fantastic clarity and a solid bass for the size. Was really struggling between this speaker and the JBL Charge 3. I think the midtones are more clear on the Flip 4 than the Charge 3, while the Charge 3 is more bass heavy but suffers with muddier midtones. It also helps that this device is insanely portable and well made. I was amazed at how well it handled Hans Zimmer songs. I would easily recommend this device to anyone that wants great sounding music in a small package.
