Visor-mountable Bluetooth® speaker system
From JBL: Trip Visor Mount Bluetooth Speaker System
Our take on the JBL Trip by Crutchfield's Alexander Hrabe
The JBL Trip's visor clip makes it a universal fit.
Short term or long haul
The JBL Trip is an indispensible driving companion. I've had my fair share of low-budget cars that were "not long for this world." When catastrophic automotive failure is on the horizon, the last thing you want to do is invest in a new car stereo and speakers. With the Trip, JBL gives you a powerful, rechargeable battery-operated Bluetooth speaker that you can clip onto your visor, and when you want to switch cars....by gosh, you just take it out. It's perfect for rental cars, and just about anything with a visor. Plus, you can easily remove the clip mount, giving you a portable Bluetooth speaker that holds a whopping 8-hour charge for music playback. So, stream away!
Hands-free is the way to be
Maybe you like your factory stero just fine, but it doesn't have Bluetooth. In some states, hands-free phone use is required, so the JBL Trip with its built-in, high quality microphone is a simple solution. JBL's exclusive Voice Cancellation technology has mercy on whomever you're calling by reducing road, wind noise, and echoes for the cleanest sound possible. If you need a quick, quality Bluetooth audio solution, the Trip is it.
