JBL Flip black

 

At this price, it sits between the Jawbone Jambox , the Beats Pill , and several other contenders in the $150-$200 price range, and smaller speakers such as JBL's Micro and Philips' grenade-shaped SoundShooter SBT30ORG/37 , which costs $50 and also has...

The affordable JBL Flip is a compact portable Bluetooth speaker that is designed to be used horizontally or vertically. It sounds good and plays loudly for its size, has speakerphone capabilities, and ships with a neoprene carrying case.

The unit is powered by a generic, somewhat bulky AC adapter instead of USB, and the 5-hour battery life is only OK. It doesn't handle bass-heavy material incredibly well.

The JBL Flip's decent performance and attractive design make it a worthy Bluetooth speaker contender at $100.

JBL Flip Bluetooth Speaker Review

 

The reason why I purchased this speaker was for the sound quality. I mean, I have heard a lot about the Jambox, and it's features, but that unit is out of my budget. I haven't heard a Jambox in real life, other than those demos at the stores, but the...
