Our take on the JBL Clip 2 by Crutchfield's Ralph Graves
Yes, the Clip 2 is totally waterproof.
Get wet and wild
The original JBL Clip was a Crutchfield customer favorite and we think the Clip 2 will be, too. It has all the great features of the original Clip — lightweight, durable, great sound — and it's completely waterproof. So the Clip 2 is ideal for outdoor listening whether you're seaside, on the slopes, or just hanging by the pool. And with an extended battery life of 8 hours, the Clip 2 lets you make a day of it.
Designed for travel
Integrated into the body of the Clip 2 is a sturdy carabiner clip. Just hook it on your backpack, bag, or belt and set out for adventure. You can wirelessly stream music from your smartphone or tablet via Bluetooth. The Clip 2 also has a built-in stereo mini cable to plug into your device's headphone jack. The cable reels into the speaker's back panel when not in use, so you don't have to keep track of a separate cord.
If you get a call while you're listening to music on your phone, you can hit the play button to talk hands-free. The Clip 2 has a built-in microphone so both you and your caller will enjoy a clear conversation.
