    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 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 deciding between this and the Charge 4 and I have to say I prefer the sound of the Flip 4 better. Undoubtably the charge has more bass but the Flip 4 absolutely has better mid range (vocals), great highs and plenty of bass. I use this in my backyard area and pool and it fills the space without even having to turn it up halfway. I would buy one or even two of these to make a stereo pair before I would buy the charge 4.

    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.

    Fantastic speaker for the money

    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

    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.

    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.

    Good for small rooms

    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.

    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

    JBL Charge 3 is GREAT (read review!)

    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!

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Speaker is designed well aesthetically, connects easily, has good bluetooth range, and has nice, crisp sound. Pretty much everything you'd expect to be done well by a good bluetooth speaker. Only thing I haven't tested is the water resistance--if the speaker is truly water resistant as advertised, and if the sound carried a little bit farther than it does, would probably be 5 stars.

    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!
