JBL Flip 2

 

Good performer for the money, but isn't a fully rounded package

Exciting presentation ; Easy operation ; Well designed ; Goes loud ; Good level of detail

Sound could be weightier ; Treble is harsh at mid-high volume ; Battery life an issue

The JBL Flip 2 has made some positive improvements to its predecessor, but it’s still not perfect.

JBL Flip 2: Top portable Bluetooth speaker takes it up a notch

 

Although its battery life remains a weak point and its price has gone up a bit, the second-generation Flip is an improvement over the original and one of the best mini portable Bluetooth speakers currently available.

The ; is a highly portable Bluetooth speaker that's designed to be used horizontally or vertically. It sounds good and plays very loud for its size, has speakerphone capabilities, NFC tap-to-pair, and ships with a nice carrying case.

At around 4 to 5 hours, battery life remains so-so.

Although its battery life remains a weak point and its price has gone up a bit, the Flip 2 is an improvement over the original Flip and one of the best mini portable Bluetooth speakers available.

The JBL Flip 2 is the successor to the original Flip. It's another small Bluetooth speaker aiming to pack great sound into something roughly the size of a can of fizzy drink. The original Flip impressed us by punching above its weight. Can the sequel...

JBL Flip 2 Review

 

At a price of just $99, it's easy to recommend the JBL Flip 2 to anyone looking for a compact Bluetooth speaker. I had heard good things about this speaker and the original Flip, and I was still surprised at how good this speaker sounds, especially...

JBL Flip 2 Review

 

Inexpensive ; Can get loud without distortion ; Includes speakerphone

No weatherproofing ; Limited battery life

The Flip 2 is an affordable, portable Bluetooth speaker that gets plenty loud, but the fidelity won't wow you.

JBL FLIP 2 Wireless Portable Stereo Speaker Review

 

The JBL FLIP 2 has the same cylindrical-shaped body as its predecessor but now has a slimmer, more appealing minimalist design with its rubber matte exterior hugging its hard plastic and glossy metal mesh grill. Well, you don't have to guess where the...
