Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive quality. I just bought this a week ago and havent looked back. Blue. I toss it in the washing (not running) machine to give the bass a bit more badump. For the price you cant go wrong. It sounds much better than the last speaker i had, cost more than the Flip 4. The battery lasts all day, depending on your volume settings. In this one week i have dropped it twice, off an pallet jack and another time jumping off the mast off a forklift. Id say 5ft. Still works like a charm. Not a scratch. The sound is impressive. I listen to almost everything. Everything sounds good. Ill be ordering the camo flip 4 and a charge to have a nice system when i ride my bicycle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent sound I have enjoyed this product since I removed it from the box! The sound is clear and can get as loud as I need it to be (which happens to be very loud). However, if you are all about the deep bass that rattles and makes it hard to understand the song, a portable speaker isn't what you are looking to purchase. I turn it on and can hear it from any room on the first level of my home. My husband and I used it to play music during our FB baby announcement and the sound was great! It looks awesome and the actual color of the speaker is vibrant so if you order a specific color be ready to get what you expect! This speaker is just what my family needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better each generation! This is my third JBL Flip, I also own the Flip 2 and 3 which both work great to this day. Each generation of JBL Flip simply gets better than the last, this generation adds IPX 7 water resistance and JBL Connnect+ with performance improvements such as 2 hours more of battery usage and a deeper bass response. When it comes to durability in Bluetooth speakers JBL always delivers, and the Flip 4 is perfect for outdoor usage. All in all if your looking for a smaller Bluetooth speaker that can deliver sound as good as larger speakers, and is durable the Flip 4 is way better than the competition.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent so far, haven't thoroughly tested First of all, you have to be mindful of the sound settings on your device in order to prevent things such as text messages and other sounds from occurring while you are playing music. As always, don't blame the device for user error. Anyways, the Flip 4 sounds great and has really good bass. It has really good range, especially outside; I think I went way past the listed range and did not lose connection. I haven't tried to test the battery in one sitting, nor have I run water over it, nor have I set it out in the sun for long periods of time. I will when I go to the beach this summer. Build quality feels solid. If you lose the lanyard, you can easily replace it with a shoe string.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Needs longer battery life I bought one of these a couple of months ago for a river trip and the speaker was great! It was easy to use and had good sound quality however the battery life was very disappointing. I realize it says up to 12 hours depending on volume and content but I would still expect to get more than 4 hours of play time from it. I actually returned the first speaker because of it thinking it was defective of something. I bought another one hoping that the first one was defective. IT WASN'T. I think it would be better advertisement to say the battery last for 4 hours because that is the max amount of time I have been able to use the speaker.

Product Q&A

Is there a way to shut off or turn down the volume of the start up noise? I like to use this speaker in a office environment but I don't like how loud the start up noise is? Is there a fix for this?

Asked by: MQ32q
Yes, on the current Flip 4 you must download the JBL App and update Firmware that takes up to 15 minutes or so to process and afterwards you can simply turn feature off as an option on the app via iPhone or Android. I too love the product but when your living with roommates, work in office environments or want to simply stay incognito, having the option to say, you know, I can see that it’s on by the light ambient behind the device is always good enough. Unless of course, one may be visually blind.

Can I lower the volume of 'connecting sound' and 'power on/off' ? I think they are way too loud.

Asked by: psy901
It is absurdly loud and sophomoric, interfering with what I am doing with this speaker. Please, JBL, give us a firmware update that fixes this flaw.

I have a Flip 3 and we love it.  Looking to add 1 or 2 more and connect together to expand the sound area on my patio.  Is the connect button on the 3 compatible with the new 4? or vice-versa? 

Asked by: 76BlueHen
JBL released an update. Go into the JBL Connect app with your Flip 3 and update the firmware and now you should be able to connect it to your Flip 4. But, now that Flip 3 can only connect to other speakers featuring JBL Connect+.

What do I do if my speaker is making a static and fuzzy noise, only having it for about 4 months? And have kept it in perfect conditions, as in not putting it in water, not blasting music, and not keeping it in hot conditions.

Asked by: SophiaC
The flip 4 obviously has issues. I contacted JBL on my issue and it seems when the battery runs down you get the popping noise loose blue tooth connectivity and shuts off. They only offer a discount to buy another. Sorry JBL, stand behind your products. These should last much longer than what we are experiencing. Can't take a chance on another.

I'm using Flip 4 to playing guitar, using the 3.5mm line in. If I don't play a note for 5 seconds, it goes into a power save mode, at which point the next note I play is not audible while it "wakes up." Possible to extend this time/disable?

Asked by: hip_modernism
Hi all, I have the same problem. I have used OP-1 as well but any audio source prodces the same proble. Approx 5 seconds after audio drops below a certain level (TBD) the turns off the speaker drivers and requires another singal more than threshold (xxmV TBD) for approx seconds or so to enable the output. This means you cannot use this speaker to play any music, live or recorded, that has quiet portions. The "no signal" timeout setting should be made much much larger than 5 seconds and possibly reduce the level (as we all do not play hyper compressed music through these speakers). Approx 1minute timeout would be more sensible. One assumes this is a software issue. Can you update the firmware to change this timeout?

Just got the JBL Flip 4 and it doesn't have a case or charger, so I bought a case but what charger is factory recommended with this.

Asked by: OJ Peterson
The charger is tucked into the box at the end. It took us awhile to realize where it was tool

The flip 4 compared to the charge 3, what are some of the main differences, I don't know which one to buy, how loud and how good is the bass

Asked by: OGSxxGaming
I got these information from various YouTube reviews and here's a summary of them: Bass wise, The Flip 4's bass is impressive, it packs a punch but it's not as deep as the Charge 3's. Battery wise. The 6000mah of the Charge 3 is needed for it's big drivers, and to charge your gadgets. In a word, it gives the same battery life span as of the Flip 4, since the Flip 4 has smaller drivers, a 3000mah battery is all that it needs (It will still depend on volume level and music). Loudness wise, the Flip 4 is loud due to the emphasis of treble, but bass levels stay the same. Whereas the Charge 3 is best in max volume, the treble and bass are further emphasized. But in moderate volumes, like 50-75%, the Flip 4 sounds better since the Charge 3 sounds a bit muffled in these volume levels. If you only listen to electronica, heavy bass songs and so on, the Charge 3 is a better choice, but if you are more into Pop, Rock, EDM and so on, the Flip 4 is a better choice. Portability wise, the Charge 3 is a bit of a hassle to bring due to it's size, but unlike the Flip 4, it is much easier to put in your bag due to the small size. Both can be grasped easily by hand. Protection wise, both are IPX7 certified, but take note that the Flip 4 doesn't float unlike the Charge 3 (in my opinion is kinda weird...) so don't drop the Flip 4 in lakes, rivers, the ocean and so on or it'll be difficult to retrieve it. But for me, the Flip 4 is my choice. But it depends on your preferences. Hope this helps!
