Our take on the JBL Clip

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.


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

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Everything about it is great. The input cord could be a bit longer and volume could be just a bit louder but other than that it works perfectly. Although the input cord that comes with it is a bit short, the clip does come with a input jack so you can use your own input cable. No complaints here...

Pros: Light weight, very portable, pretty clear, easy to use, price is very reasonable

Cons: Charge cables and input cables a bit too short

JBL Clip is great!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I think the JBL Clip is a great product. I use to provide music when I workout in my garage gym or whenever I want a little personal music (the kids monopolize the TV and stereo ). I like the compact design and portability. Easy to pair, good sound and volume - at a great price.

Pros: Great value and we'll built - easy to use.

Cons: One speaker but that is expected in this size and price

JBL...just better loud

Frankonwheels from Florida on 7/26/2015

This little beauty does everything it's expected to and does it well. Sound is exceptional, battery life acceptable, and it's loud enough for outdoor use. Bluetooth pairing is simple and never fails.

Pros: You name it...

Cons: Nuttin'

great speaker for people who do not like ear buds

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought this for my dad and he loves it. he asked me to find him something that would allow him to play his music as well as receive phone calls and I thought this would fit the bill and it does. He was like a little kid with it. He called me right away to tell me about it and to show/listen to how well it worked. He is not usually so enthusiastic about gadgets but this one he was. He is able to attach it to his belt or his vehicle and it plays loud enough for him to hear it even without his hearing aids.

Pros: small and fairly loud for its size. can be clipped to most things making it easier to keep track of.

Cons: not the best at noise cancellation and at times can pick up feedback .

I love everything about this JBL Portable Bluetooth's portable convenience, sound and look! Even though my Kindle Fire is not bluetooth-ready, I can use the attached plug to get the same great level of sound. I gave one to my grown nephew for his birthday and he loved it too!

Pros: You will love this all around product! it was delivered in two days as promised!

Cons: None

Small, practical and affordable

Mars from Texas on 7/19/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Nice small wireless speaker. It is loud enough to listen good music, but it gets some distortion if too loud. The clip is fine, but one will may find difficult to attach to some places, small aperture. Battery life is good under normal use.

Pros: Small, Well built, loud enough for good music (no beating)

Cons: clip aperture may be too small

Great little speaker for personal use

Pros: Portability, price

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is a great product. I bought this to use as a sound system for the car and for a wedding. It's really great.

Pros: + Small + Loud + Easy to connect to devices + Good battery length

Cons: - Just be warned that if there's too great a distance between the speaker and the device (ipad, etc.) that the sound quality will deteriorate. That said, it's pretty far distance. Check the product details for more information.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The speaker is well made. The speaker is very light. The charging cord comes with it . There is a connection aux jack as well. The blue tooth hooked up to my iphone5s easily. The thing rocks and just get two, they daisy chain and sound loud with out taking up any space. The clip worked on a thick strap too. The went on sale no sooner than I bought mine. Well worth the higher price.

Pros: Light , small, powerful

Cons: Easy to miss place.

JBL doesn't dissapoint

Rogue 6 from Oregon on 2/1/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I've had a few JBL products in the past with mixed success but this little guy is a real hit. I'm very pleased with the design and feel of the product. It's light but sturdy. It's easy to operate and there is very minimal interference in signal quality as I've experienced with some JBL products. The speaker is not going to blow you away but it serves its niche perfectly for portability and providing great background noise to parties and small gatherings. Having listened to the Flip 2, i was more impressed with the sound quality from that unit but for me it really comes down to portability. The Clip is just way easier to store in a laptop bag and have on the go compared to the Flip.

Pros: Portable Great Design Battery Life

Cons: Distortion if you push it too hard.

Big Bang for the buck

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I was totally impressed when I opened up the package. This speaker is very well built and VERY easy to use. I have read other reviews and seen the a lot of people didn't like how small the clip was, but it was an easy fix by using a bigger clip like one you would see on the end of a dog leash. This is a great little speak with big sound for a small amount of money!

Pros: Great sound and easy to use!

Cons: Clip is small

JBL Clip was easy to sync, has a great durable design and good sound quality. The clip is very useful for attaching to belt loop, bags or really anywhere. We use it to get tunes out to the hot tub!

Got for my wife for a Christmas gift even though she's not into electronics. She loves it she can take it with her on her bike rides. Portable and loud, easy to use. Bluetooth to both Apple and Android, with no problems.

jbl clip is hip

Bobolynx from Stamford ct on 12/25/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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!



JBL Clip Bluetooth speaker

Todd B from Boston MA on 12/24/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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

JBL Lite

Frankonwheels from Orlando, FL on 12/23/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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's the full monty.

Cons: Not a thing, ladies & dudes.

I want another

Joeb from North Carolina on 12/7/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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.




AbbyB. from Louisiana on 12/3/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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!
