Introducing the JBL Flip portable wireless stereo speaker system. Ready to play wherever you go, it’s compact and portable, but don’t let its small size fool you. With two 1-5/8-inch (40-millimeter) drivers, a built-in bass port to produce serious bass and digital signal processing (DSP) to generate room-filling audio, it delivers full-range JBL® sound with exceptional bass. In addition, this blend of power and portability has Bluetooth® capability, so it can connect wirelessly to any Bluetooth-equipped device – which means that it is an ideal wireless speaker for smartphones and tablets. This system also offers up to 5 hours of playback time from its built-in Li-ion (lithium-ion) rechargeable battery, with an LED indicator that tells you when to recharge – and when the speaker’s in Bluetooth listening or pairing mode. Through this speaker, which includes a microphone and call-answer button, you can even answer phone calls. With performance that comparably priced products can’t match, the JBL Flip is the ultimate wireless, portable stereo speaker for any environment.

The JBL Flip portable speaker streams stereo music wirelessly from any Bluetooth-equipped device. This arrangement makes JBL sound available for a wide range of portable devices, including tablets.

Some portable speakers struggle to produce bass, but not JBL portable speakers. The JBL Flip has a built-in bass port and generates bass that’s superior to comparable portable products.

JBL speakers – even small ones – aren’t misers when it comes to delivering great sound. The JBL Flip employs digital signal processing to generate room-filling audio with great bass from a compact speaker.

Not all of the sounds from the JBL Flip come from your music. There’s a microphone and a call-answer button so you can answer phone calls from the speaker.

The JBL Flip stereo speaker has a built-in Li-ion rechargeable battery that provides up to five hours of playback time. You can easily recharge the battery using the adapter, which saves you battery hassles and money.

The JBL Flip stereo speaker plays from either a vertical or horizontal position, so you can place it in a variety of locations. And it fits easily into a backpack, so you can take it from one place to the next.

A clearly visible LED lets you know when the built-in battery needs to be recharged, as well as when the JBL Flip is in Bluetooth listening or pairing mode.

The Red Dot is the prize for high design quality. The international jury only awards this sought-after seal of quality to projects that set themselves apart significantly from comparable projects thanks to their excellent design.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unbelievable sound Been using my Flip for over a month and have bragged about it to everyone. It couldn't be simpler to connect to devices and the sound and volume are incredible. Bought one for my g/f and she was ecstatic. Best Bluetooth speaker I've heard and I got mine on clearance for $40. Whoo, whoo.

It pairs easily and while I'm on the porch with my phone it's still playing and the other one will not play right if I take my phone on the porch with the speaker sitting at the door!!!! I should've went with my first choice, won't make that mistake again from now on if JBL makes it and I want it I'll be getting a JBL!! Thanks for making quality products!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Speaker! I had this speaker for quite some time, took everywhere from the house to the river, out hiking, even endured a deployment over to Afghanistan. Always providing great sound and loud enough for eveyone to hear, whether using it for music, gaming or movies and on my cell phone, ipod or laptop. Unfortunately mine took a dive off of a cliff this weekend in Yosemite, so definitely going to puchase another.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound and quality!!! I had one speaker that gave great volume and sound. Then I bought an adapter and added another speaker. I take my JBL Flip speaker(s) to the park and people are amazed at the quality and sound.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it!!!!!!! My dad just passed away and my mom bought this so I could listen to the music that my dad and I loved. I am loving this. It was easy to hook up to the phone or Kindle and I have been using it all the time. It has a great sound and I don't have to have it up loud for it to be comfortable. I barely have the sound on my phone or Kindle up and I can hear it perfectly.

Can multiple items be paired with the JBL Flip. It seems I must "unpair" with current "paired" item to pair with another.

Asked by: MessyQuiff
The FLIP can connect to one source device at a time. When you press the power button on the FLIP to turn it on, it has to be pressed and held again for 3 seconds, enabling Bluetooth pairing mode. The ring around the power button will now alternate between blue and red. Search Bluetooth devices from your source device and connect to JBL FLIP. Play music and enjoy.

my window 10 is not connecting to my jbl flip 1 threw Bluetooth, can you help.

Asked by: alw45
The FLIP does not need any special drivers to get connected to computers/laptops or any Bluetooth enabled devices. If ever the device asks for drivers, please perform the following: For Windows Operating Systems, you just need to update the Bluetooth Hardware of the computer/laptop. ** Go to Control Panel ** Go to Hardware and Sound ** Under Devices and Printers select Device manager ** In Device Manager select Network/Bluetooth Adapters ** Once there Update the Drivers ** Make sure that the Bluetooth Adapter of your computer is A2DP compatible.

I just bought the jbl flip last week and been having trouble with the speaker, the battery just stay for 2 hours or less. What can I do with it, do you guys any suggestions that i can resolve this problem.... 

Asked by: Kat23
If you are using the speaker at full capacity, let us say 80-100% volume, and you are playing audio that has loud bass, it would most likely drain the battery faster. Try and play mellow music/slow music with the volume at 50-70% and compare battery longevity. If it is still the same, the battery is most likely behaving erratically and is draining much faster than usual. If that is the case, please do submit an email to and our customer support team would be able to assist you.

Good day I connect my phone to the flip it played but now when i connect there's no sound coming out

Asked by: Justin1234
If I understood you correctly, your phone was working okay with the FLIP and now it's not. If this is the case, please perform the following: 1.Reset the FLIP by following this step: - press and hold the "Volume -" and "Power On/Off" buttons simultaneously for at least 6 seconds. The unit powers OFF by itself. Now the unit is reset. 2.Unpair/Forget the FLIP from your phone. 3.Turn the phone completely OFF. 4.Switch the phone back ON. 5.Turn the phone completely OFF "AGAIN". (this is important) 6.Switch the phone back ON. 7.Pair the FLIP with your phone.

Is it OK to leave my JBL Flip plugged in (with the adaptor) all the time?

Asked by: notime
Yes, there is no harm in leaving the FLIP plugged in at all times, and then disconnecting to use in a portable application, when needed. This will work fine.
