JBL Flip is rated 4.2441 out of 5 by 127.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from would recommend! I am enjoying the JBL FLIP- great price, extremely portable. High quality build, I like the rubber base and the black finish. I had no difficulty syncing whatsoever (running Windows 764b). All necessary drivers were found without delay from the Internet. Please note that on a Win PC, check Control Panel -> Sound for the device. Furthermore, if you are using Media player, ‘Switch to Now Playing’ (i.e. player partially minimized) in order to use the graphic equalizer, etc. I haven’t tried connecting directly to ‘Aux In’ or my cell phone, but I’m sure I won’t be disappointed. Maybe JBL should make a bluetooth subwoofer too! :) Daniel

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality product and Durable! I usually don't write reviews, but after what just happened I feel like I need to share this info. I bought this speaker six months ago, and I love every part of it. It sounds great, the clarity is maintained at all volume levels, and the Bluetooth range is very good as well. Last night I managed to knock the speaker off of a 7th story balcony on to pavement. I thought for sure it was toast, but I went down to get it and it still works great! The metal casing took most of the fall. It dented and came off and there was a crack in the plastic underneath it, but everything stayed in tact and the sound is still amazing. I am very pleased with this speaker and I will never buy a different brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value For the longest time I was looking for a bluetooth speaker that had good sound for a low price. The competition stops here. Me, along with anyone else who has heard it playing are impressed with the quality of sound that can come out of such a small speaker. In fact, I tested it next to the famous Beats Pill, and the Flip far outperformed it. Setup is easy and the battery can last a while on normal volume levels. The only flaw with this product would be the bulky charging cable. I would recommend the Flip 2, with a USB charger. But for $99, this is one of the best mini speakers on the market!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Prefect for Travel This is my very first JBL product and for what i paid I am completely satisfied, yes it would be nice to have a USB charger over the wall plug but for a bluetooth travel speaker, its great, compact and easy to use. The sound, well the sound is amazing for such a small device and when one is stuck in a Hotel room it sure beats listening to your ipod playlist through the internal speaker of a laptop or headphones. I have also used it for SKYPE and it makes a conference call so much better. If you travel regularly, do yourself a favour and get a JBL Flip, you wont be disappointed!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sounds great! but no USB charging is major fail Like all the other reviews, this is a great sounding portable speaker for this size. However, the lack of a micro USB charging port means I have to pack yet another charging cable when I travel with it. These days when you need to travel as light as possible, the last thing you want is to pack one more charging cable with a huge plug. Fail on the portability. Still, I do recommend it because it does sound great. Note to JBL: on your next revision of the FLIP, please change the charging to micro USB port. You do it for the Micro and the Charge, why not the Flip also. Thanks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from JBL Flip Speaker For a bluetooth-enabled rechargeable computer speaker, it does the job for me. Pretty decent bass for such a small unit. I have one for use on my home Mac and I use one in my classroom when I use embedded video within PowerPoints. The ability and versatility in being able to move the speaker around when needed is a plus. The sound of this JBL portable speaker is able to fill my classroom with on average of 38 students well.For the record, this speaker replaced some really cheap computer speakers which had a "tinny" type of sound. I am satisfied with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everybody wants to hold it! At our Christmas party, it filled the room. Everybody wanted to see it, and couldn't believe the sound coming out of such a small Coke-can sized unit. I love it. It lasted almost all day at office volume yesterday.  I love the small size, paired with my S III. My took my wife's hand strolling the beach at the Hotel Del Coronado, music in the other hand. I can enjoy and share a song anywhere. With Netflix on my SIII, I was watching the crash scene from Flight. Everybody thought I had the TV on. One thing - when it's done, it's done. It doesn't fade out or anything. It plays full volume as long as it can, then just shuts off. Plug in and it will play while recharging. Pay more if you want. But at $99, nothing touches it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great aesthetics, great sound. And it's wireless. Five stars for: wireless comfort, ease of operation, sound you would expect from a JBL. And the aesthetics, I am a sucker for aesthetics. It is one of the main reasons besides the bluetooth I bought it before hearing it. Cannot speak on behalf of durability because I just got it. Bluetooth operation reaches beyond 9 Meters (27 ft.). My livingroom is 9.5 Meters long. Haven't tested taking calls through this speaker. I assume it also has a built-in mic. Lows sound hyped around 130 HZ. This gives you that sense of deep bass. Bass for this size it has plenty. Highs sounds edgy but I like it. Packs punch too. Can go loud and I recommend caution. Price/value is great if you live in US. In Europe it sells for about $165 ( E129,95). Mweh, a bit high.

hello my flip is only lighting blue, doen't turns blue and red to be reached as bluetooth device. 

Asked by: miguel angel
Please follow the following steps: - First turn the FLIP ON. - Put JBL Flip in pairing mode by holding down power button for 3 seconds. - LED will blink Red/Blue. - Put Bluetooth enabled device in pairing mode. Now you should go into your Bluetooth enabled device’s settings and make sure Bluetooth is enabled; JBL Flip should appear on the list. Make sure the JBL Flip is selected. - If prompted by device for a password, it is 0000. NOTE *If the unit is OFF, and you press and hold the POWER button for three seconds, this will NOT put the unit in pairing mode. It will blink BLUE telling you that it’s not paired with anything. You must turn the unit on first. Then, while it is on, press and hold the POWER button again until it starts blinking RED/BLUE (alternating).

Trying to use my July flip but computer using Bluetooth can see it. Tho"on" switch flashes blue even with power cord connected. Any ideas?

Asked by: Dennis
Thank you for the inquiry. Please ensure the computer bluetooth device software is updated with the latest version. Please press and hold the speakers on/off button for 3 seconds enabling pairing mode. Access the computers bluetooth menu and search for available devices. Locate the Flip in the list and connect. Best Regards.
