JBL Flip 4 review

 

A life-friendly speaker that doesn't skimp on sound

Decent, rugged design ; Reasonable price tag ; Plenty of bass

Underwhelming mid-range sound ; Slightly basic looks ; Boring colour options

The JBL Flip 4 is a robust, affordable Bluetooth speaker, and one that’s comfortably supplying sounds to all elements of your life. While the speaker might be punchy, deficiencies in the mid-range stop it being an instant must-buy. Bringing bluntness...

JBL Flip 4 review

 

Sound quality isn't flawless, but still a great little worker...

Intuitive design ; Good volume ; Waterproof

Could be more detailed ; Not as dynamic as we’d like

A waterproof wireless speaker with good features and decent sound

JBL Flip 4

 

The JBL Flip 4 is a small Bluetooth speaker with excellent water resistance and a frame willing to put up with plenty of abuse. It's a compelling alternative to the UE Wonderboom.

JBL Flip 4 review

 

At first glance, JBL's Flip 4 Bluetooth portable speaker looks very similar to 2016's Flip 3 . But looks can be deceiving: it's actually a slightly bigger speaker, weighing 1.14 lbs (517 g) -- 0.14 pound more than its predecessor -- and it's covered in...

The JBL Flip 4 offers significant improvements over the Flip 3, including better sound and battery life, as well as full waterproofing. It has speakerphone capabilities and a more durable fabric covering.

Its bass is improved but it still lacks some real bass punch.

A nice upgrade over its predecessor, the Flip 4 is one of the best speakers in its size and price class.

JBL Flip 4

 

The JBL Flip 4 speaker delivers strong Bluetooth audio from its modest, waterproof frame.

Solid audio performance with rich bass and well-defined highs. Can be submerged in shallow water.

No track navigation buttons. Audio cable not included.

What more can you really ask of a portable $100 speaker? The JBL Flip 4 delivers solid audio performance and can get wet without any issues, making it a pool-friendly, outdoor-ready option. If your main priority is a rugged build, however, there are...

JBL Flip 4 Review: The New Sub-$100 Speaker King

 

With the improvements JBL made to the Flip 4, you no longer need to choose between sound quality and features in a $100 Bluetooth speaker. You can have it all.

Excellent bass, treble and midtones for a small speaker ; Good battery life ; Waterproof

Distorts at high volumes ; Limited functionality in app

The JBL Flip 4 improves on an already-solid speaker line, adding more battery life, more ruggedness and better sound.
