JBL-Flip-Bluetooth-SpeakerI’ve been a fan of JBL products for many years. In my garage band days, we coveted JBL’s Stage Monitors and their home audio equipment. Currently, in my more “settled” years, I listen to most of my music in the car driving to and from work, or in my basement workshop. Bluetooth speakers are great when it comes to playing tunes in my basement, outside, or on the go. If you’re going to invest in a Bluetooth speaker, it should be a good quality speaker.

JBL-Flip-Bluetooth-Speaker-contentsJBL has been making high quality, high performing audio equipment for decades. Therefore, I was confident that the JBL Flip Bluetooth Speaker wouldn’t disappoint. Read on to find out how it performed:


The JBL Flip was creatively designed to provide great sound quality with a clean sleek look. I like how you can use the Flip with the speaker standing up, or laying on its side. This helps to fit it on a cluttered desk or shelf.

The JBL Flip comes with a neoprene carrying case that fits snugly, looks good, and protects the device from bumps and bruises.


JBL-SpeakerThe JBL Flip feels and appears to be built well. It has a solid feel, with enough weight to provide tactile evidence of quality drivers. Visually the Flip is built well. No visible signs of poor workmanship like missing paint, uneven edges or gaps, or abrasions. The JBL Flip Bluetooth Speaker possesses the high level of quality I’ve come to expect from JBL.


Performance wise, the JBL Flip is worthy of my ownership! I’m impressed by it’s crisp highs and clear mid range response. The Flip has surprisingly good low frequency response for such a small speaker. This impressive bass is the product of the built-in bass port and two 1 – 5/8″ drivers.

Gladly, I find that I don’t have to sacrifice volume for sound quality. The Flip performs exceptionally well at high volumes with little to no distortion.


Jbl-Bluetooth-Speaker-CasePortable Bluetooth speakers are hitting the market hard. Not all of them have what it takes to deliver great sound quality at affordable prices. The JBL Flip is perfect for music junkies that don’t want to break the bank, but still want loud, clear, full range music.

  1. Robin (Masshole Mommy) says:

    This would be perfect for me to listen to music on the go while I am cleaning my house. I love to crank up the tunes.

    • Jennifer says:

      I am the same way – listening to music while I am cleaning get my blood pumping and makes it much less dreary! It’s funny though, because I never listen to music while I am working because it makes me unable to concentrate. LOL!

  2. My daughter has been asking me to buy her a portable speaker for ages now! We have one for the bathroom but need one she can take around with her, and this looks awesome!

  3. Jennifer Soltys says:

    I agree with you there are so many of them out there, but not all live up to their claims. This would would be perfect for our boat and summer outings! Love how it’s shaped!!

  4. This is definitely something my teens would like. Great deals.

  5. I love the microphone option. And, at this portable size, I could use it for calls in the car. That’s awesome.

  6. Great deal and I love how portable it is.

  11. This looks like it would be great for travel! I have never had a speaker like this, but I will have to get one.

  12. I really like this and I think my husband would too. He’s always looking for new gadgets. This might be good for Father’s Day.

  13. I love the bluetooth speaker that we have, but it’s pretty large. I’d love a smaller, more compact one like this that delivers great quality. Will have to look for a JBL!

  14. Oh, I am liking this! Definitely something me and hubs could use! Love how portable it is too!

  15. Angela S says:

  20. So you are saying that my husband should finally get rid of his giant speakers from the 90’s and upgrade them FINALLY!!? I will share this sale list with him and encourage us to step into 2014 at Best Buy. lol

  21. I love that it’s portable. Perfect for inside and out!

  22. I like the look and size of those speakers! Bear buy has some really cool promos going

  25. I’d never heard of Audio Fest! I’ll have to go look for my son’s bday present there!

  26. I love that it comes with a carrying case to keep it safe! My boyfriend doesn’t quite know how to travel and keep things from getting scratched lol.

  27. I love to play music when cleaning the house, makes it more fun. My kids and I have random dance sessions in the afternoon too.

  28. Nancy @ Whispered Inspirations says:

    My husband would love this. I think it looks great and I bet it sounds amazing.

  29. I am definitely going to be looking into this. My son is in to all these gadgets

  30. I’ve been seeing these around, and I really am getting intrigued. It seems like a nice wallup is packed into such a small space. I can think of so many great places to use it too.

  31. Perfect for our small house that’s busting at the gills from a family of 5! We need something. We don’t actually own a stereo at all anymore

  32. I like this speaker and can think of lots of uses for it at my house. If only my husband and kids would’t always be using it instead of me!

  33. I need one of these for when we go on vacation. Oh to have portable music to take and not worry about all those cords!

  37. How cool is it that it has a case? That makes it so much more attractive because I can take it places and it still be protected :)

  38. Tatanisha says:

    I could totally use something like this while listening to music as I work. I didn’t think you would be able to get a quality sound from something soo tiny– thanks for the review!

  39. I love wireless portable speakers! They are the best to take to the beach in summer.

  40. I’ve been looking for a speaker set to purchase for my son. This looks perfect!
