Use the carbiner-style clip to hook the JBL Clip to your gear (speaker pictured in red).

Grab, clip, and go

Just as you would expect from its name, the compact, lightweight JBL Clip easily hooks to your bag, backpack, or belt loop, so you can play your music anywhere. Now you've got an instant upgrade to your phone's internal speaker, everywhere you go. Wirelessly pair your mobile device via Bluetooth or connect the Clip's built-in stereo mini cable into the headphone jack. The mini cable conveniently reels into the speaker's back panel when not in use, so you don't have to keep track of a separate cord.

Made for moving around

The strong, carabiner-style clip is rugged, yet easy to open and fasten. It's built of the same rubber material that encases the entire speaker, giving it a durable look and feel. All-in-all, the JBL Clip is a great companion for whatever adventure you have planned.

Built-in speakerphone

If a call comes through while you're listening to tunes, hit the play button to talk hands-free. The JBL Clip has a built-in microphone so both you and your caller will enjoy a clear conversation.

Product Research


Bluetooth 3.0 The JBL Clip is a self-powered Bluetooth (v.3.0) portable speaker that is ideal for your Bluetooth-enabled devices such as your Apple iPod/iPhone/iPad, Android smartphone/tablet, Blackberry, Windows PC, Mac computer or other Bluetooth certified devices. The JBL Clip supports Bluetooth audio streaming (A2DP 1.2) and Bluetooth hands-free communication (HFP 1.6), as well as a simple pairing procedure.

  • Simple Secure Pairing: A single button press pairs your Bluetooth-enabled device with the Clip speaker. Once paired, the JBL Clip will automatically re-connect with your device when in wireless range (up to 33').
  • Bluetooth Audio Streaming (A2DP): The JBL Clip portable speaker streams stereo music wirelessly from Bluetooth-enabled devices such as your smartphone, tablet, computer, laptop, or other device. You'll be able to control Play, Pause, and Skip functions from the speaker. You will need to continue to use your Bluetooth-enabled device for advanced music navigation and to view song/artist information.
  • Bluetooth Hands-Free Communication (HFP): The JBL Clip has a built-in microphone so you can use it as a hands-free speaker phone. Use the Clip to answer phone calls, talk on Skype, or with Facetime. A long press of the call-answer button will activate the voice command feature of your smartphone (if applicable). You will continue to use your Bluetooth-enabled device to view video calls, manually enter phone number, and control advanced phone functions.
Note: Due to the differences in Bluetooth technology, some Bluetooth enabled devices may be incompatible, function improperly, or may not support all features when used with the JBL Clip.

Portable Design: The JBL Clip is lightweight, rugged, and comes with a built-in carabiner letting you hook it easily to whatever clothes you're wearing or backpack you're shouldering.

Aux Input: In addition to built-in Bluetooth, the JBL Clip is fitted with a 3.5mm auxiliary input for connection of almost any portable audio player with a headphone output.

Daisy Chain: You can daisy chain two JBL Clip speakers together for more sound. Each speaker will output the same audio signal (not stereo).

Rechargeable Battery: The JBL Clip Bluetooth speaker has a built-in Lithium-ion polymer rechargeable battery (3.7V/600mAh) that provides up to five hours of playback time. You can easily recharge the battery using the included USB cable and a free USB port on your computer or 3rd party AC/USB adapter (sold separately). Charging time is approximately 2 hours.

Absolutely the best portable speaker out there! I have used the previous model clipped to my belt for the last year and a half and enjoyed nothing but clean articulated sound. I thought that the experience is so great that I purchased the new clip model for both of my sons. Same great tone with a built in clip that can go anywhere, note the metal grille can take a beating.Gets loud,easy to pair, 3.5mm cable connection, hours on a charge, Fun!

For the price I don't think you can beat it. Portability,and connectivity are a plus. Don't let the size fool you, it can put out some decent levels of volume. Sound quality is decent for being such a small single speaker. Battery life is ok.

Pros: Price, portability, volume.

Cons: Single speaker

Wow, what else can you say? As Bluetooth speakers go, this one sounds amazingly accurate and natural, with the vocals sometimes sounding uncanny. There is no true bass, as is to be expected from a speaker so small, but the mid-bass is smooth, tight and articulate. The Bluetooth pairing has worked simply and without fail, and the battery life is more than satisfactory while being dependent on the volume you listen to. This speaker makes me happy and content when I listen to music through it...nuff said.

Pros: Pretty much every darn aspect you can mention...it's the full monty.

Cons: Not a thing, ladies & dudes.

I want another

Great little speaker. I use this to listen to music while working. I am thinking about purchasing a second one since they can be daisy chained.

I got this for my 65 yr old dad, who is not very "tech savvy", however, after going over the key functions with him, he was able to use it like a pro! The sound quality is ridiculously awesome for something so small. The phone feature is even cooler! My dad is painter & he always has so much trouble trying to get his phone out of his pocket when working, so having the ability to answer calls is just perfect. Not only does the phone feature work, the sound is great!
