  • Built-in microphone and call-answer button
    Not all of the sounds from the JBL Flip come from your music. There’s a microphone and a call-answer button so you can answer phone calls from the speaker.
  • 5-hour, Li-ion rechargeable battery

JBL Flip is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 156.
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 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 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Speaker I absolutely love this speaker. It sounds amazing, it has a perfect balance of highs, mids, and lows. The battery lasts a long time. Its very durable, I have taken it hiking, camping, to the beach, and to the pool and have dropped it a few times, but it hasn't skipped a beat! Everywhere I take it people love it. I have no complaints except that I wish I had a car charger! It may be $100, but the full sound that you get out of that little speaker is worth every penny!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound and quality!!! I had one speaker that gave great volume and sound. Then I bought an adapter and added another speaker. I take my JBL Flip speaker(s) to the park and people are amazed at the quality and sound.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing!!! I was shopping around for a nice wireless Bluetooth speaker for when I'm in the pits at my R/C races. I looked at price, quality, sound and reviews. From all the reviews I read I was being lead to believe the beats pill would be the best, but actually I found the JBL flip to be the best. It was half the price of the pill, and the sound, I honestly found it better on the flip. I totally recommend the flip, some of my friends have already pick them up after I got mine.

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 VERY NICE ITEM!! I been hinting all year to get some kind of external device for my Android phone cuz I love music and my speeakers on my phone were not cutting it. Got this today for Cristmas and it is AWESOME...you are not going to blow your neighbors away ....but very nice sound and very light and easy to carry. Easy to start up..and easy to figure out. Remember the speaker power is in direct proportion to the media volume on your phone/computer etc. I highly reccomend this product...especially for the price.

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).
