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.
- 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.
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
- 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

right channels for playback of the same Bluetooth source from multiple speakers.
