  • Clean, detailed sound
  • Solid build
  • Great Bluetooth range

  • Short battery life
  • Audio can be a bit too 'bright' for some
  • Audio quality drops at lower volumes

Bottom Line

The JBL Flip 2 is a great speaker with clean, detailed sound, a great Bluetooth range and it acts as a speakerphone with its built in microphone. It does however have a very 'bright' audio quality and the audio quality does drop at lower volumes. Its battery life is also a little short.

The JBL Flip 2 is a popular selling portable Bluetouth speaker that has received positive user reviews for its clean and detailed audio quality. The frequencies, from the lows to highs are clear at any volume. It has a great, solid build and its Bluetooth range is good. The speakerphone is equally as clear and makes it that much more convenient.  However, the speaker lacks a decent battery life, with a reported battery life of about 4-5 hours. It may also potentially be a bit too ‘bright’ for some, depending on genre preferences. It also seems to lack quality at lower volumes, reportedly not being as effective at lower volumes in terms of audio quality as it is at higher volumes. JBL is a popular brand that has proven its reliability over and over again. One can easily see why the JBL Flip 2 Bluetooth speaker is an excellent choice for people looking for portability and performance.

    Although its battery life remains a weak point and its price has gone up a bit, the Flip 2 is an improvement over the original Flip and one of the best mini portable Bluetooth speakers available.
