I consider myself an amateur audiophile on a budget and have owned various equipment from Polk Audio, Harman Kardon, JBL, etc. I did a lot of research and compared many many models before deciding on the Flip 2 from JBL. I don't think it can be beat (no pun intended... Dre) based on size/weight ratio to sound output. THIS BABY GETS VERY LOUD!!! In regard to audio quality, it has a surprisingly clean, very detailed (not too tinny) sound. You can actually feel the bass, just don't expect wall shaking, after all, this thing is only the size of a soda can. It can occasionally come across sounding a bit bright for my taste, but nothing a little tweak of an EQ can't fix. As mentioned, I compared many models, including Bose, Ultimate Ears, Dre, etc. When it came time to buy, I was torn between the JBL Flip 2 and TDK Life on Record A33. Yep, the same TDK company that used to make blank cassette tapes (for those old enough to remember). I was shocked at the amount of bass and overall warmth that oozed out of the TDK. I actually preferred it over the Flip 2, but ultimately decided to go with JBL for these three reasons: - Reputation: JBL has a superb reputation - Price: The JBL price was 30% lower (Yes, I'm cheap) - Weight: JBL weighs about 1/3 less My only knock is the so-so battery life of about 5 hours per charge. However, I remind myself that it's pumping out an impressive 6 watts/channel. If battery life is that important, you can't go wrong with the JBL Charge. Overall, I'm very pleased with my decision and highly recommend the Flip 2.

Comments about JBL Flip Portable Wireless Stereo System:

I´ve tried many speaker even bose Soundlink Color which is more expensive than this one, and I have to say that this is the best, none of the others can even reach the loudness of this speaker, it´s true, more bass would be perfect but come on ! for the price it´s just amazing how good this sounds, really portable, excellent sound, highly recommended.

Quality from 30 years past

By Rush

from Long Branch N.J.

Comments about JBL Flip Portable Wireless Stereo System:

I picked this up on 10/18/2015. Must say just blown away. JBL was a brand of quality when I was in the Army in Germany. I picked this up on what I knew back then, so happy that it is just as true today. To make the right selection pick JBL.

Great sound for the size

By Bmac

from Orange County, NY, United States

Comments about JBL Flip Portable Wireless Stereo System:

Several years ago, bought flip for my son. That one still going strong, great sound, durable, still charges and lasts, no complaints, so I got the flip 2 myself recently. Flip 2 has similar great sound, easier to connect Bluetooth, nicer case, but no room for charger/adapter.

By Eric1972

Comments about JBL Flip Portable Wireless Stereo System:

I purchased this about 6 months ago and use it in my garage all the time. This small speaker produces really good sound and is not as expansive as some of the other brands. Great buy for sure.

Comments about JBL Flip Portable Wireless Stereo System:

After my first one was stolen, I bought it again because it is a fantastic speaker. No glitches, incredible sound, no static, the way a speaker should be. We use this for family bbqs, so people inside and everyone by the pool can hear!

Eexcellent Speaker

By Kirk1958

from Houston, TX

Comments about JBL Flip Portable Wireless Stereo System:

My daughter received one of these after hearing my (other brand) speaker. We tested several for her and in this price class we felt the JBL Flip was terrific. Both of my boys found they liked it a lot too and kept asking to borrow it. It's so good they each received a JBL Flip 2 for Christmas. The Flip 2's have an added bonus of being able to use as a speaker phone and come with a nice travel case. If you have a Bluetooth device and you want to listen to your saved music, Pandora, Spotify, iHeartRadio, YouTube, Netflix, etc., these things are great! I use mine most when I cook the family breakfast on weekends. We're always jammin' to my old tunes. These will easily fill a room (or kitchen) with sound. Many of my They're friends have decided they now want one too. You can't go wrong with this if you're looking for a good speaker. These things have replaced our home stereo system! That thing is now a dinosaur! We have them in red, white, blue and black.
