Best-in-class sound that goes wherever you go.
The JBL Clip is the ultra-light, ultra-rugged, and ultra-powerful portable speaker. This powerful little box gives you 5 hours of battery power so you can take the music with you where ever you go. With its 3.5 mm integrated audio cable, it’s a frontrunner for on-the-go plug-and-play when it comes to listening to music on your Smartphone, iPod, or miniature tablet. But even better, the JBL Clip also offers Bluetooth® wireless, streaming your play-list freely using its in-built SBC codec and A2DP functionality. Following in the pioneering footsteps of the JBL Micro Series – and then taking things up a notch – the Clip’s 1.5” driver delivers a stunning balance of loudness and bass performance. But what gives the JBL Clip its name is one of its simplest, yet most convenient features: the Clip comes with a carabineer hook that lets you wear it wherever you want on your clothes, belt, backpack, or messenger bag – and comes compact enough that you can fit it into your pocket. When you’re out and about on the wilderness or town, and you also happen to be an audio perfectionist, you’d do well to be carrying a JBL Clip somewhere on your person.

Small and lightweight but big sound!
I bought this as it was on sale. I was looking for a smaller sized Bluetooth speaker for hiking and biking yet wanted something that sounded good and rugged. I'm very pleased with the sound it puts out. Easy to use. Small and lightweight as I was looking for. Also good quality sound and feel to product. This will be used on a backpack while biking, hiking, and probably pool or lakeside. Good choice and purchase made.

I bought this a couple of months ago and have been very impressed by the sound and the speaker phone functionality. I didn't realise how much a portable speaker phone that was separate from my mobile would come in handy. I have now used it for a number of conference calls and the audio quality is far superior to my mobile speaker phone. I highly recommend this product. It represents excellent value.

small but great
Got mine last week. I love listening to music. Wasn't expecting for a small speaker to have a great sound quality. Inexpensive yet convenient. It's Bluetooth easily connects to my paired device. For the enhancement, I'd suggest having slightly embossed buttons so I just have to feel them (rather than look) especially while on the move.

Great quality sound!
Got as a gift for my birthday. I love it and i use it a lot, especially because i commute to work and school on my bicycle. though i wish the buttons for volume had some type of abration or a dot because i like to keep my eyes on the road rather focusing on looking for the volume keys. Also would it be possible to add a forward and restart button? that would greatly add to the usercfriendly-ness

Small, convenient, excellent sound!
I purchased this about two weeks ago....I absolutely love the size and sound and convenience of this speaker. Love it for the beach, pool, and outdoors. The shape is great and it fits so well n my pocketbook. It has a hook right in the sturdy handle. Everyone that sees it cannot believe that the sound is combing from this little speaker. Excellent buy for the money Well worth It.

Great Speaker Great Price
At first I was getting disappointing that the battery wasn't lasting long enough like it was saying in the starters’ guide (5hrs). Even if I charged it for 2hrs, it wouldn't last more than 2hrs playing. So I was about to return it and then I had an idea....thinking to myself maybe I should charge it for more at least 6hrs and so I did. I turned it on played it @12 taps (3 quarts full volume) pretty loud...ladies and gentlemen it worked, around 4hrs 05min red light turn on it lasted 4hrs 55min before fully draining the battery. So I highly suggest charging it for at 6hrs or more before using it right out of the package. Just to warm up the battery since its brand spanking new. Oh one more thing you are going to need or buy a "5 volt AC/USB adapter" it doesn't charge good with a computer or laptop. If you have an iPhone, iPad or iPod you can use that AC adapter to charge it. I don't know if other cells have 5 volts AC adapters. Just make sure its a 5 volt AC/USB adapter . You can also use it while charging but don't recommend it because if you want to take it on the road maybe battery won't fully charge.
I had lots of trouble turning it on and off cause the starters guide doesn’t have any instructions don’t know why. So this is how you turn it on. Double tap the power button and to turn it off the same double tap power button. I also suggest if you are using it with an iPhone, iPad or iPod to pair it. Do not let it search by itself. Tap the Bluetooth Paring Button and when it appear select it, because if you don't it will be skipping and stopping all the time.
I'm giving this product 4 stars because it need stuff to be included with the product. Here is the list:
1. Instruction or Owners guide
2. Longer USB charging cable
3. A/C USB adapter
4. Carring case or pouch
yes I'm keeping it, 4hrs is good enough for me.

Does this have a earphone socket, can we connect it to speakers to play the streaming music on bigger speakers.
The CLIP’s auxiliary port is an “in” port which you can use to connect a source device to the speaker with a standard audio cable. You can use the CLIP’s built-in cable to connect to another speaker’s 3.5mm port, this will let you re-stream audio that is already playing on the CLIP.

Does it come in original packaging?
I have purchased a few of these and it comes I a jbl brown box with a description but does not say refurb on it so giving as a gift is not a problem. Inside it's packed in plastic with a seperate plastic bag for the instructions and charging cord. All the ones I have ordered were like new. No problems at all and sound great.
