The JBL Flip is only about the size of a tall soda can, but it sounds anything but small. This pint-sized portable Bluetooth system lets you wirelessly stream audio from your Bluetooth-enabled smartphone, tablet, laptop or other device. A built-in microphone turns the Flip into a wireless speakerphone.

Thanks for checking out the JBL Flip. This thing is killer. What we like about it is it's super small, super compact. Take it on the go and it sounds great. It's got a built-in battery, so it's gonna last you about five hours. It's Bluetooth so we're gonna wirelessly transfer our music from our device to play it on our speaker. It's got a telephone button at the top, so what I like about it is in a pinch, if I'm in a rental car or I'm in somebody's car and I need to take a phone call, I can actually use it as a hands-free device. Portable, on the go, great sound, Bluetooth, take it with you. You're gonna love it. Thanks for checking it out.
