Have a smartphone or tablet? You can get great sound from them with a JBL Flip 2. This portable Bluetooth speaker features two full-range drivers that deliver clean, clear sound, with a built-in bass port to reinforce the low tones. And despite its compact shape, the Flip 2 can produce room-filling sound, thanks to JBL's advanced digital signal processing.

JBL Flip 2 Red

Bluetooth connectivity for music and conversation

The Flip 2 has NFC (Near Field Communication). Just touch a compatible portable device — such as a smartphone or tablet — to the system for instant wireless pairing. Then with one touch you can play music, or stream audio from videos and games through the Flip 2. All without wires and without logging into a network.

When your paired smartphone receives a call, the Flip 2 turns into a speakerphone. Its built-in microphone uses SoundClear® technology to minimize echo and filter out ambient noise. Both you and your caller will enjoy a conversation with clean, clear sound.

Convenient portability

The Flip 2 has its own carrying pouch. The system comes with an AC wall adapter, and gives you up to 5 hours of portable operation from its built-in rechargeable batteries. An auxiliary input lets you play non-Bluetooth portable devices through the system, too.

Product Highlights:

  • built-in Bluetooth with NFC (Near Field Communication)
  • range: 30 feet
  • built-in microphone with SoundClear echo and noise cancellation
  • call answer button for hands-free wireless speakerphone operation
  • two full-range drivers with bass port
  • stereo minijack input for portable devices
  • built-in rechargeable battery lasts up to 5 hours
  • carry case

I needed a small, portable speaker to use when I workout in my home gym, as well as when I'm out working in the yard. The unit is a lot smaller than I assumed when looking at the pictures but the sound quality is excellent and it's extremely easy to sync with your phone. Once you have the phone set up, it's a matter of using your favorite music app and turning the speaker on. This would be the perfect device to take camping or to the beach. It's about the same size as a large energy drink and thus very lightweight. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a budget friendly portable speaker with satisfactory sound and simplicity of use.

Pros: Great Sound Great Price Easy to use

Cons: None

I have purchased two of these speakers in the past few months as gifts. The sound quality is simply astounding. I don't know how they do it. Deep bass and crisp highs and actual stereo sound. A school bus rider of mine brought the one I gave her on the bus and the sound filled the entire interior even though the ambient noise was quite high. Everything about this little speaker in first rate. And it will get quite loud if you want it to. Amazing.

Pros: Amazing sound. Excellent build quality.

Cons: None.

I agonized over whether to buy this Flip 2 or the JBL Charge 2 or the Bose speaker. I teach dance and often get left in a room high and dry without any equipment. Sometimes we need to practice on stage or outside with no electricity available. This little speaker is perfect. It is small, lightweight and powerful. And it comes with a sturdy customized carry case. It fills a gym and a large dance studio with powerful loud clear sound. Everyone who sees it can't believe all that sound is coming from this small unobtrusive cool looking speaker. And I can use my phone as the 'remote' device. No need to spend any more then for this machine.

Pros: Small, light weight, powerfully loud volume, pleasing to the eye, rubber bumper protection, inexpensive.

Cons: Not water proof or water resistant, short battery life between charges (5 hours)

I was pleasantly surprised. I just wanted something portable with OK sound and OK battery life. So far battery life is as good as advertised...even in the cold weather. The sound is pretty good for something so small. Primarily use with Galaxy S4 and not a hitch with pairing. Hands free was a bonus and works very good. I wish I'd of bought more than 1 at the sale price.

Pros: Good sound in small package and everything works.

Just got this little speaker. Easy to connect my iPhone and Mac, just went to settings, bluetooth, find and they discovered the speaker and connected. Range seems good although not able to get outside right now to test distance. More then one wall cuts off the signal and that may be the phone. Can't judge battery yet. I got it to take to the garden this summer and i think it will be perfect. It also answers calls well.

Pros: Good price, good quality, easy to use

Looked at many possibilities before purchasing the Flip 2. Decided on this product due to high feature level and low cost. Size is just larger than a beverage can. Bluetooth for music and phone answering works flawlessly. Sound is excellent for such a small product. All in all, better than expected and a real value.

Pros: Bluetooth capabilities Price

Cons: Sound a little strained at higher levels.

Portable, great sound for it's size. Pairs up quickly, convenient and adequate for iPhone use. As noted above, Pricing is great so I bought three and gave then away to family members. Very well received and convenient. Great product, size and price for my college student and great size and convenient for my high schooler. All in all pleased. Needs recharging after about 5 hours. This is a small annoyance but given price and quality, not a huge one. The case to carry it in is sturdy and well made. Very small footprint. Good value.

So fast it has been great, have used in the house in the case and when working in the garage. Plan on using it in my vintage pick up this summer with the blue tooth radio I got for Xmas last year from crutchfield.

Pros: Very high quality sound at higher volume which is one on the main caricteristis I was looking for, the classic truck we have isn't the quietest in the cab area so I needed good volume with good quality.

Cons: None so far.

Can't believe how great this little tube sounds. Like the white color, just the right size for our counter top.

Pros: Very easy to set up, like the carrying case. Locked on to our Bluetooth with no issues. Doesn't sound tinny, like some of these Bluetooth speakers I have tried. Can't comment on battery life. Haven't had long enough.

Cons: None at this time.

I bought two of these for my brother to use at his new business location. He wanted to strategically locate the speakers and simultaneously stream the same music to both speakers. As a test, we were unable to accomplish this, just using his Android based smart phone, but still hope for success once placed within the network at his business.

Pros: Sound quality, adequate volume, size, can still use it while charging

Cons: Not sure if a single source will simultaneously stream the same music to two of these speakers

I just love this unit! It is simple to connect to, use and mostly it's cool! All products should be this flawless. I rated the battery life down a bit because I use it so much I need to recharge it often, but it does give ample use between charges. I use it for music and movie sound track while I'm cooking. I'd probably have it on for sports channels if iI paid for them. I find the sound to be quite adequate for the price.

Pros: Portability, Ease of Bluetooth connection.

Cons: None. but could Make more colors, stripes, prints, team colors and logos?

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I had a cheap ihome battery powered speaker I would listen to with my phone hooked to it while I was shaving after a shower or getting ready for work and the sound was really weak and constantly replacing the AA batteries so after much research and my past experience with JBL as soon as it went on sale off, I ordered it. Out of the box had enough juice to pair it with my phone and my wife's phone too and listened to it for an hour. It really does have good sound to be not much bigger than a can of Coke, I'm impressed. Great purchase, no regrets. Crutchfield is the best, thank you...

Pros: Sounds great and seems to be well built, solid.

Cons: None so far...

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I love my Flip 2 so far... It produces a powerful and full sound and looks nice sitting whereever in the house I tote it. It was easy to pair with my phone, but it does make an odd/loud beep when you turn it on. I've used it on and off for several days while getting ready or cleaning the house and haven't had to charge it, so I'm pleased with the battery life for what I'll use it for. I haven't used it for the speakerphone capability yet.

Pros: Stylish, compact, and good sound quality

Cons: The beep when you turn it on... definitely not discreet!

Written By JimG, Garner, NC on Monday, September 08, 2014

I bought this for two purposes, listen to music on my boat, and speaker calls from my office. It sounds great, with anything, music, youtube, telephone calls, etc. On my boat, I was able to have it on speaker behind me on the boat console while I was able to fish on the front deck and have a conversation with my wife. Was really impressed with that. I do a lot of conference calls, it stinks that they left out a mute mic button, I have to use my phone to mute during the many hours I am in conference calls.

Pros: Sounds great, portable, the microphone and noise cancelation

Cons: no mute the mic for speaker calls

This speaker is awesome! I use it at work with both a low volume and higher volume (when everyone has gone home). It will play for several hours on a single charge, and it works really well as a speakerphone. It is much better than just using the speakerphone on my cell phone.

Pros: Sound, Easy Connection, Speakerphone

Pros: Compact, good sound quality and easy to link to any device.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Sound wise this product is good, just as are my other JBL speakers that I have been using for years with my iPods. What is lacking is a good user guide as well as visible volume controls and I am disappointed about that. Battery life is good, size is just right, and again, sound quality is excellent.

Pros: Audio quality, size, battery support time.(approximately 4 hours).

Cons: Clear instructions in the User guide and visible volume controls.

Not bad fro a small unit. Thought it would have deeper bass. I'll have to look closer at the specs. I also thought the item would be a little larger

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

For the money, this is a superb speaker! It was a very simple pairing procedure as well. I do public presentations from my laptop and needed an easy to use auxiliary speaker with loud sound as my audience consists of primarily seniors who are hard-of-hearing. This is much easier for me to set up and use -- no wires, electricity, etc. needed. My previous speaker system was standard computer speakers which required electricity plus another plug in to my earphone jack on the laptop. It is great not to have to have all those wires lying on my tabletop next to the laptop.

Pros: Very portable, great sound, can be placed anywhere in the room & works beautifully.

Cons: None that I can think of!

Features

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 smartphone device.

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 speaker.
