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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow this speaker is better than expected!! My husband bought me a speaker for my birthday in January that's about 1/2 the size of a boom box, waterproof and big!! I picked it out, almost got a JBL but chose the other one! Well now I have the flip and Wow!!! 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 you link another speaker to this one?

Asked by: GGuess
Unfortunately, no. The FLIP does not have the Connect feature which the FLIP 3 has. The FLIP 3 can connect to another JBL Connect enabled speaker namely: CHARGE 3, PULSE 2, XTREME and the BOOST TV.

Does this charge your phone while you're using it too?

Asked by: Nicolemyounggg
Unfortunately, no. The FLIP series speakers do not have the same function as the CHARGE series speakers. Only the CHARGE series speakers can act as a mobile charger for mobile devices.

I have had a JBL Flip for about 3 years. It seems like it won't hold a charge. If i plug it in it plays fine. When I take it off of the outlet it seems completely dead like it won't hold a charge. Is there a reset for this unit or is the ion battery dead 

Asked by: chipshot442
Unfortunately, it seems that the battery has already drained out and is already considered a dead battery.

how come when my jbl flip 3 is not used for a few days and is fully charged... when i go to use it the speaker wont turn on because it is completely dead?

Asked by: leeny
That shouldn't happen if the speaker was properly shut off when not in use. If the speaker only went on standby, the battery is still being drained but not as fast as when it is being used.

How long do I charge the JBL Flip for, for the 1st initial charge?

Asked by: Jth2nd1973
Initial charging would really depend on the factory charge that the speaker received before packaging. Most of our units have initial charges before packaging and should be charged at lease 1.5 - 2 hours or until the battery indicator states that it is fully charged.

Is this an appropriate speaker to use with my computer?

Asked by: Cher
As long as your computer's Bluetooth version is capable of Bluetooth audio streaming using the latest Bluetooth Streaming Profiles( A2DP V1.3, AVRCP V1.4, HFP V1.6, HSP V1.2 ), the FLIP will work without any issue. If the computer is not capable of streaming audio wirelessly via Bluetooth, you would need to update the Bluetooth version of your computer. Firmware(drivers) and Software updates are available from the manufacturer of the computer. However, if you're looking into using the FLIP via wired connection, a 3.5mm audio cable is needed to connect the FLIP to your computer.
