Great speakers. As a UPS driver, I use mine every day. Over the past 5 years or so I've had several JBL speakers, all of which still work even though the batteries are weak from so many charging cycles. I've had a flip 4 since it was introduced and just bought a second one three weeks ago. I love the size and functionality of the 4. GREAT SPEAKERS!
I bought my Flip 4 because I needed a speaker that would be durable, but at the same look good, and have good sound. I got all of that with this speaker. Extremely durable, waterproof, and impeccable sound. This is what should be in every portable speaker in my opinion. The Passive Bass Radiators add to the sound so much, and they look super cool. I listen to music in the shower with it all the time, and I don't have to worry because it's waterproof. Wherever I go in the Summer, I'm going to take it with me.
Good improvement especially in bass in the new Flip. Seems like it takes less time to sync up when 2 are connected. I also Like the small aesthetic changes to differentiate it from the Flip 3. Not to much needed to change there. It's just better than the competition especially at it's price.
James B Lansing would be proud. From the minute I opened the package, I knew this was a quality product. What I didn't expect is such incredible sound from this small speaker.
It sounds fantastic in both vertical and horizontal positions, and holds a charge freakishly well. Charging is easy with the high quality cable included and the visual LED meter lets you know your battery strength. Turn on-off and bluetooth pairing sound FX, very cool! Fit and finish, quality of construction all better than expected in this price range, and the control buttons, which almost seem to be pushing through the water proof grill cloth, work well and feel expensive.
Pairing is quick and easy and I noticed that even though I wandered away from the speaker with my phone and moved around the house, it stayed connected and played without breaking up. The ability to pair more JBL connect+ devices is a great feature and worked nicely. JBL also included an aux jack under the waterproof cover where you charge the speaker - they didn't forget anything when they designed this speaker, but the best feature by far is the amazing SOUND QUALITY!
Yes, there are still some of out there who love great sound! I love and truly appreciate the incredible dynamic range this little speaker produces. Both side bass baffles seemed a little gimmicky at first, but do their job very well as this little speaker produces lower frequency response than I though possible. In the Kitchen, it fills the whole room with quality sound regardless or the volume or type of music I'm listening to. In the shower (yes waterproof means waterproof) the tile acoustics allow this little gem to really shine with sound quality so dramatic, you'll want to shower till the hot's gone.
Kudos to the folks at JBL, this one really lives up to the name! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
The JBL Flip 4 is an excellent portable bluetooth speaker. In my opinion, it is hands down the best portable speaker in it's price range. It produces excellent sound quality and is completely waterproof. It is very affordable and provides excellent battery life. The battery life is rated at 12 hours per charge with moderate usage. My Flip 4 was the center of attention at my sister in laws birthday party. The speaker played from around 3:00 pm until 11:00 pm at about 70 % volume. When all was said and done the battery was still indicating 2 bars left out of 5. People could not believe how long it had been playing and every one kept asking who made it and how much was it worth? I have to say that the Flip 4 is a definite steal. I also compared it against my other portable speakers and this is my conclusion. The speaker is well balanced and has a emphasis on mid-range and treble. You do not need to use an equalizer app with this speaker as it sounds very good right out the box. The sound is crisp, clear and loud with no distortion. The bass is also good and goes down to around 70hz which is impressive for a speaker this size. In fact, it has the same frequency response as the JBL Xtreme. Another great feature is the JBL connect plus, which allows you to pair up to 100+ JBL compatible speakers. I truly wish that JBL releases a firmware update for the Charge 3 and the Xtreme as I would love to be able to hear all three speakers synced and playing together. Thank you again JBL for hitting another Grand Slam with the JBL Flip 4! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
The size, sound quality, and volume range are all amazing, just as I've come to expect from JBL products. That said, the details make the difference, so I've listed my top 5 favorite features below.
1) The IPX7 waterproof rating is awesome. IPX7 means the speaker is fully waterproof even if submerged in up to 3 feet of water. I got over my initial fear of testing it out and actually dunked this guy in a pool with no issues. Great for shower jamz and pool parties.
2) Battery life is amazing. I've been casually using this thing an hour or two every other day for a few weeks now and still haven't to recharge. The battery indicator lights under the power button are a nice touch too.
3) The Bluetooth connects quickly and easily. I also love that I can connect two devices to the speaker at once since I play music from both my phone and iPad pretty frequently. Other wireless speakers I've had in the past have required me to re-pair every time I switched devices, which was a pain.
4) The bass radiators are actually pretty dope. It's cool to see the bass in action, and it's not a feature I've seen in many other portable speakers.
5) The USB charging cable that comes with the speaker is pleasantly long. This may seem minor/dumb, but like I said, the details make the difference.
Unfortunately I wasn't able to test the JBL Connect feature since these are the only Connect-compatible speakers I have (I also own a JBL Clip 2, but that's unfortunately not compatible - photo below for size comparison though). This was a bummer because the feature sounds like something I would totally take advantage of. I also haven't tested the built-in speakerphone, but that's one I probably won't use too often.
Overall, I highly recommend this speaker. In fact, it might have just become my new gold standard for portable music players. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
