Portable Bluetooth Powered Speaker:
The JBL Flip 2 is a self-powered Bluetooth speaker that is ideal for your
Bluetooth-enabled devices such as your Apple iOS device, Android
smartphone/tablet, Blackberry, computer/PC or other devices. The JBL Flip 2
supports Bluetooth audio streaming and Bluetooth hands-free communication, as
well as a simple pairing procedure.
- Bluetooth Audio Streaming (A2DP): The JBL Flip 2 portable speaker
streams stereo music wirelessly from Bluetooth-enabled devices such as your
smartphone, tablet, computer, laptop, or other
device. You will continue to use your Bluetooth-enabled device to navigate your
music and to view song/artist information.
- Bluetooth Hands-Free Communication (HFP): The JBL Flip 2
has built-in microphones and SoundClear echo and noise cancellation
technologies, so you can use it as a hands-free speaker phone. Use the Flip
2 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.
- Simple Pairing (w/ NFC): A single button press pairs your
Bluetooth-enabled device with the Flip 2. The speaker also supports NFC
(Near-Field Communication) technology for pairing; simply tap your NFC-enabled
Android smartphone to the NFC tag on the side of the speaker for instant
pairing with the Flip 2 (not available for all phones). Once paired, the JBL
Flip 2 will automatically re-connect with your device when in wireless range
(up to 33').
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 Flip 2.
Full-Range JBL Sound: The JBL Flip 2 employs digital signal
processing to generate room-filling audio from a compact
speaker. Using two 1.5625" drivers, a 12-watt amplifier, and a built-in bass
port, the JBL Flip 2 delivers full-range JBL sound with punchy bass.
Versatile, Portable Design: The JBL Flip 2 stereo speaker plays from
either a vertical or horizontal position, so you can place it in a variety of
locations. And it fits easily into a backpack, so you can take it from one place
to the next. A soft carrying case is provided to protect the speaker during
storage or travel.
Aux Input: In addition to built-in Bluetooth, the JBL Flip 2 is fitted
with a 3.5mm auxiliary input for connection of almost any portable audio player
with a headphone output.
Controls: The Flip 2 provides a Power On/Off button, an Answer/End
button for hands-free communication, and Pairing button. To control music
playback and to make a call, you must still use your Bluetooth-enabled
LED Indicator: A clearly visible LED lets you know when the built-in
battery needs to be recharged, as well as when the JBL Flip 2 is in Bluetooth
listening or pairing mode.
Rechargeable Battery: The JBL Flip 2 stereo speaker has a built-in
Lithium-ion polymer rechargeable battery (3.7V/2000mAh) that provides up to five hours of playback time. You
can easily recharge the battery using the included AC power adapter. Charging time is
approximately 3 hours. The AC power adapter can also be used to power the
