I consider myself an amateur audiophile on a budget and have owned various equipment from Polk Audio, Harman Kardon, JBL, etc. I did a lot of research and compared many many models before deciding on the Flip 2 from JBL. I don't think it can be beat (no pun intended... Dre) based on size/weight ratio to sound output. THIS BABY GETS VERY LOUD!!! In regard to audio quality, it has a surprisingly clean, very detailed (not too tinny) sound. You can actually feel the bass, just don't expect wall shaking, after all, this thing is only the size of a soda can. It can occasionally come across sounding a bit bright for my taste, but nothing a little tweak of an EQ can't fix. As mentioned, I compared many models, including Bose, Ultimate Ears, Dre, etc. When it came time to buy, I was torn between the JBL Flip 2 and TDK Life on Record A33. Yep, the same TDK company that used to make blank cassette tapes (for those old enough to remember). I was shocked at the amount of bass and overall warmth that oozed out of the TDK. I actually preferred it over the Flip 2, but ultimately decided to go with JBL for these three reasons: - Reputation: JBL has a superb reputation - Price: The JBL price was 30% lower (Yes, I'm cheap) - Weight: JBL weighs about 1/3 less My only knock is the so-so battery life of about 5 hours per charge. However, I remind myself that it's pumping out an impressive 6 watts/channel. If battery life is that important, you can't go wrong with the JBL Charge. Overall, I'm very pleased with my decision and highly recommend the Flip 2.

Will not charge

By emcass

from Woodstock, GA, United States

Comments about JBL Flip Portable Wireless Stereo System:

This speaker was given to me as a gift and I absolutely loved it. Unfortunately, after a little over a years worth of use the speaker would no longer take a charge, and since I did not have a receipt, I basically didn't have a warranty for it. Tech shops also told me that due to the construction of the speaker, it is not possible to change the port out, so now it's just an oversized paper weight. I had a Beats Pill prior to this for a couple years and never had a problem with it, and unfortunately sold it after given the Flip2, but the quality and sound of the Flip is definitely superior to that of the Flip. I will give it that much credit.

I was gifted this speaker and I was so surprised by how good it sounds. My brother got the new Flip 3 but I still think this one is better.

Sounds good

By Traveler

Comments about JBL Flip Portable Wireless Stereo System:

The JBL Flip 2 sounds good and is perfect for travel and hotel room use. I've had problems keeping it charged however and that brings my rating lower. If there weren't charging problems I'd give it 5 stars.

Flip not charging

By Puru

from New Jersey, United States

Comments about JBL Flip Portable Wireless Stereo System:

This is an excellent speaker with great sound quality. I have always been a JBL fan. The initial months it worked fine but now my flip won't charge. I have to adjust the wire to a specific angle for it to start charging and still it won't hold that position. So basically without any charge my speaker is useless. I have noticed that this is a issue with many flip users. Please advise on how to solve this issue.

LOVED IT- but it stopped working

By Holly13

from Long Island, NY

Comments about JBL Flip Portable Wireless Stereo System:

I got this as a gift, and it turned out to be an essential to me! I used it everyday getting ready for school, I brought it to parties and get togethers, everyone was always impressed by the sound quality and good looks. But! It suddenly stopped working! For no apparent reason. First it stopped accepting charge, then completely stopped working and I still can't charge it.(I've tried changing out the charger and cable) I had had it for a little over a year and had done nothing differently. I'm so disappointed; I loved this product. I would have certainly given a 5 star rating were it not for the death of my beloved speaker.

Stopped Charging after 1 Charge

By NoBattery

from New Orleans, LA, United States

Comments about JBL Flip Portable Wireless Stereo System:

I bought this a couple weeks ago and have charge it once. After using it a handful of times I tried to charge it again but have found that the unit does not respond to being plugged into the charger!! I now see that the Flip 2 suffers HEAVILY from this problem. How can it possibly break after being charged once? Would be a great product if not for the extremely faulty charger
