Waterproof sound

Wherever you go with your smartphone, you've got music with a JBL Flip 4. This rugged portable Bluetooth speaker is completely waterproof — ready for sand, sea, dust, or snowbanks. Passive bass radiators and full-range drivers really crank out the sound, with clarity and punch.

JBL Connect+ app

Download JBL's free control app to your Apple® or Android™ device, and kick your Flip 4 into overdrive. Simultaneously pair two devices with the Flip 4, so you and a friend can take turns as DJ without missing a beat.

Pair two Flip 4's for stereo sound, or go even bigger. You can wirelessly connect over one hundred JBL Connect+ enabled portable speakers for the ultimate field party.

Speakerphone and Voice Assist

When you receive a call on your paired phone, the Flip 4 turns into a speakerphone. Its built-in microphone uses SoundClear® technology to minimize echo and filter out ambient noise so you and your caller can hear each other easily.

Press the Voice Assist button, and access your smartphone's voice command program. So just by speaking into the Flip 4 you can use Siri with your iPhone®, and Google Now with your Android smartphone.

JW from Minneapolis, MN on 2/13/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I want to like this product, but I'm unable to get past the annoying sounds it makes at power on/off - sort of reminiscent of a Zoot Horn Rollo guitar riff. I would be happy if I could simply silence this thing. I've had to return it.

Pros: Good sound. Simple connectivity.

Cons: Loud and annoying power on/off sounds. Just another kid toy.

Jack from Elmwood Park, IL on 12/30/2017

Great sound for a little speaker. Even at higher volumes it doesn't sound like it's a little speaker played loud, although I don't blast it (I prefer to hear it, not feel it).

Pros: small, but doesn't sound small. paired with my phone right away.

Cons: embarrassing loud sound every time you turn it on or off. If you're a kid it's probably cool, but for us non-kids it's way too loud and unnecessary and the only reason I didn't give it 5 stars

I really like these Flip 4 speakers. They produce a big sound that is also clear and articulate. I use them both inside the house as well as outside on the patio. I plan to take them to the lake next summer and use them on the dock and on the boat.Easy to use and a great value! I liked my first one so much that I bought another one too.

JBL Flip 4 x 2

Anonymous from Hinsdale, IL on 9/20/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Ordered 2 of the Flip 4. They sound really good. Not boom box loud but fill your space with good reasonably rich sound. Battery life seems solid. JBL Connect App on Android sucks. Will not pair in stereo mode no matter what I do. I'm a computer tech, so it's not me. Plenty of info about how bad that app is, and it's true. Tells me to move closer and the phone is an inch away from the speaker. They pair in party mode fine without the app and that's good enough I guess. Shipping was a day late. Promised Sat by end of day, didn't arrive until Monday very late. Units were at a UPS depot 5 miles from my house and then they sent to another depot 15 miles from my house, and then delivered. Seemed weird.

Pros: Good sound, good battery life, charges fast, very portable

Cons: JBL app is as bad as everyone says. Cannot get stereo mode to work with my two.

Nice compact speaker that delivers an amazing range of music for it's size. Easy to link-up w/my blue tooth device. Nice big buttons for on/off and speaker volume. Water proof is a nice extra. Only complaint is that there was no real "owners manual" that came with it. The easy start guide was brief and very basic on what it included. The product was advertised with a lot more features than I am currently using but I have idea how to activate them. Guess I will have to go on-line and chase down a user guide.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Excellent speakers for the money. Bomb proof, good bass and durable. I bought two for stereo listening, which is possible only coupled with the free "JBL Connect" app from Itunes. At first I had connectivity problems but resolved it with this sequence: Turn on speakers - using both Bluetooth and Connectivity buttons. Then turn on iPhone Bluetooth, identify and engage the JBL's. Then go to the JBL Connectivey app, chose your product and select stereo. And only then - lastly, for me - turn on Pandora (or whatever platform you use]. I have problems unless I follow these steps. But a really find sound.

Anonymous from Alexandria, VA on 7/28/2017

Can't say enough good things about the Flip4.Great tone without the heavy bass. I listen to loads of classical music from the 78 era to the latest stereo releases. In every case the Flip 4 delivers high quality reproduction that is straight forward and natural sounding. My sales counselor at Crutchfield said for your listening this what you need. He was so right since I took it to Colonial Beach this past weekend and wowed the folks Inwas meeting up with.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have had the JBL Flip 4 for only a short time, but from the few times that I have used it so far, I am really impressed with the sound from this small portable speaker. I was especially impressed with the bass from this small speaker. It was easy to connect via Bluetooth to my phone. It probably isn't going to have the power to belt out the sound over a large party crowd, but for music for the backyard BBQ, sitting around the fire pit with friends, I think it is more than adequate. Overall really good value for the money.

Pros: good sound good value for the price

Great so un for a little thing. Gets pretty loud. Decent bass. Love that its waterproof. Haven't tested it but it seems to be pretty legit. I like that I can plug in an aux and use it with my Mac and my record player or Bluetooth with my phone. Cool sound effects for when it turns on/off/connects. Cool little lights to tell you how charged it is and they actually work!

Gray from Winston Salem, NC on 6/29/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great bluetooth speaker for size and price. I chose the Flip 4 over the Charge 3 based on portablity and sound quality. The Charge 3 emphasizes more bass, but the Flip has a more balanced sound of bass, mid and high frequencies. The Flip 4 sound is so big it rivals other larger models. Highly recommend.

Pros: Ultra portable, Great Sound Quality, Waterproof, Tough/Durable Construction, It's JBL.

Cons: It would have been nice if an AC adapter came with the included USB cord.

Wonderful small Bluetooth speaker which competes with the "big dogs"

Morris from Burlington, MA on 4/26/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I rarely give out 5 stars, so this isn't anything against the Flip 4. This is a great small speaker which easily competes with units costing much more (like Bose, Beats, etc.). I'm really impressed with how good this speaker really sounds. The passive base design does a nice job of adding bass to such a tiny form factor and the tube design works very well. My only real complaint is that occasionally the Bluetooth "hiccups", although this might be my iPhone 7's issue as opposed to the Flip's issue. I use the speaker to provide iPod music in my classic car, and it does this fairly well so long as there isn't a ton or road noise. Nevertheless, at this price point or double it, you won't find anything better. Portability in this case doesn't demand tremendous compromise in functionality.

Pros: Great sound, useful form factor, strong battery life, fun to use.

Cons: Bluetooth hiccups (might be my phone), some distortion at very high volume levels.

Features

Portable Waterproof Design: The JBL Flip 4 Bluetooth speaker features a rugged rubberized housing and a durable fabric material grille which will hold up indoors and outdoors. The Flip 4 is waterproof (IPX7-rated) which means no more worrying about rain or spills; you can even submerge the Flip 4 in water up to 1 meter (3') for up to 30 minutes. Its compact design fits easily into a backpack and it also includes a nylon wrist-strap, so you can take it anywhere with you.

Notes:
  • The FLIP 4 can only be submerged in water for a short period of time. If the speaker is playing and then submerged in water, it will sound muffled, as anything submerged in water would sound like. Submerging the speaker more than 1 meter and for more than 30 minutes will damage the speaker as the water will penetrate through the waterproof barriers due to pressure.
  • To ensure that the JBL Flip 4 is waterproof, please remove all cable connections and tightly close the cap; exposing the Flip 4 to liquids without doing so may result in permanent damage to the speaker. Do not expose the Flip 4 to water while charging, as doing so may result in permanent damage to the speaker or power source.

Full-Range JBL Sound: The JBL Flip 4 employs digital signal processing to generate room-filling audio from a compact speaker. Using two 1.5625" drivers, a 16-watt amplifier, and dual 1.5" passive radiators, the JBL Flip 4 delivers full-range JBL sound with punchy bass. The JBL Flip 4 stereo speaker can play from either a vertical or horizontal position, so you can place it in a variety of locations for great sound.

Bluetooth 4.1: The JBL Flip 4 is a self-powered Bluetooth (version 4.1) speaker which supports wireless audio streaming (A2DP 1.3/AVRCP 1.6) and hands-free communication (HFP 1.6/HSP 1.2), along with digital voice assistant integration for iPhone (Siri) and Android (Google Now). Up to two devices can be connected with the Flip 4 at once, so you and your friends can take turns streaming music. Once paired, the JBL Flip 4 will automatically re-connect with paired devices when in wireless range (up to 33').

  • Wireless Audio Streaming: The JBL Flip 4 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, & 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.
  •  Hands-Free Communication: The JBL Flip 4 has a built-in microphone with echo and noise cancellation technologies, so you can use it as a hands-free speakerphone for your smartphone (including iPhone or Android). Use the Flip 4 to answer phone calls, talk on Skype, or with Facetime. You will continue to use your Bluetooth-enabled device to view video calls, manually enter phone number, and control advanced phone functions.
  • Voice Assistant Integration: The JBL Flip 4's built-in mic can even act as an extension of the microphone on your Apple iPhone 4S and newer or compatible Android smartphone, so you can access Siri & Android's digital voice assistant (like Google Now). Simply press the Play/Pause button to activate your device's digital voice assistant. You will need to set this feature up through the JBL Connect App on your Apple iOS or Android mobile device.
Note: When the digital voice assistant is enabled through the app, the Play/Pause control function for wireless music streaming is disabled.

JBL Connect App with JBL Connect+: Use the JBL Connect App (for Apple iOS 8.0+ or Android OS 5.0+) to wirelessly link multiple JBL Connect+ enabled speakers, like the JBL Flip 4, together for amplified sound. You are able to link two speakers together so each speaker acts as a left or right channel for stereo sound. You can also link up to 100 speakers together so each speaker plays back both left and right channels for playback of the same Bluetooth source from multiple speakers. Software updates for the speaker can also be done using the JBL Connect app.

Aux Input: In addition to built-in Bluetooth, the JBL Flip 4 is fitted with a 3.5mm auxiliary input for connection of almost any portable audio player with a headphone output.

Rechargeable Battery: The JBL Flip 4 stereo speaker has a built-in Lithium-ion polymer rechargeable battery (3.7V/3000mAH) that provides up to twelve hours of playback time. The Flip 4 speaker includes a microUSB port and a 40" microUSB-to-USB cable to aid in charging the built-in battery. The battery can be recharged from a 3rd party USB/AC power adapter (sold separately) or a free USB port on your computer. A full battery charge takes approximately 3.5 hours.

LED Indicators: Clearly visible LED let you know when the built-in battery needs to be recharged, as well as when the JBL Flip 4 is in Bluetooth listening or pairing mode.

Price point, features, and name brand. [ Gregory  Jul 05, 2017 ]
In stock, shipment free, receipt within 3 days - how can you beat that? [ William  Jun 03, 2017 ]
Was deciding between this or the UE Wonderboom. They both seem like great options and I am sure I would be happy with either but the sound quality on the Flip 4 vs the Wonderboom in the all of the videos that I watched just seemed like this was so much clearer and crisper versus the more muddy, over-bassy Wonderboom (and I listen almost exclusively to EDM). It honestly seems to outperform the Charge 3 on clarity, with a sacrifice on some bass. I guess I'll find out when it arrives! [ Jay  May 30, 2017 ]

This is what my grandson wanted. [ Joan  Dec 09, 2017 ]
Love JBL and the Camo color ! [ Christopher  Aug 21, 2017 ]
I golf quite a bit. I go to have fun and a few adult beverages. We always play music while we are in the golf cart. This will work great and small enough to transport in the golf bag. I have a cheaper speaker, but the batteries go dead before we are finished playing. This 12 hour battery life should be perfect. [ Gerald  Aug 06, 2017 ]
per descriptions it fit our needs. [ Jim  Jan 12, 2018 ]
The JBL Flip 4 was recommended [ John  Dec 10, 2017 ]
My son requested it for Christmas and I knew Crutchfield was a reputable company. Also the item is sold locally but was not available in gray. Thank you! [ Denver Clark  Nov 30, 2017 ]
I heard a JBL Flip 4 that a friend owns. It sounded great for the size. [ LAMONT  May 16, 2017 ]
I chose this because the sound is told to be very good and I wanted a cute, water proof , portable , and good sounding speaker, This seemed to fit all of my needs. I would have gotten white but because of my fear of getting it dirty grey was my 2nd best option. [ carole  May 08, 2017 ]
Because it's JBL......plus it's on sale! [ Vitou  Nov 27, 2017 ]

4 questions already asked

Yes [ Miguel  Apr 18, 2017 ]
What do you mean by mount, attach permanently? Kind of defeats the purpose of buying a portable speaker. I use the included tether and just hang it up wherever its convenient. I would attach a hook to the pergola and just hang your Flip 4 from the hook, like a hanging flower pot. If you don't trust the knot in the tether, add a clasp to secure the knot. [ Dominic  Apr 18, 2017 ]
My guess would be that it could become wet and then dried and not damaged. But it would not hold up to being left in the weather for an extended period of time. Freezing weather, snow and extended wet weather. [ JOHN  Nov 17, 2017 ]
Yes you can. You can pair of the two speakers together so that you get sort of a virtual stereo effect. [ Morris  Jul 04, 2017 ]
Thanks for your question. Delivery within the U.S. is generally within 2 to 3 business days after the order ships. Hope this helps. [ Kenny  Jul 25, 2017 ]  Staff
