JBL really outdid themselves with the new Flip 4. The new JBL speaker keeps the same cylindrical design like the old version – Flip 3, but the similarities stop there. Instead of being wrapped in plastic JBL decided to wrap the Flip 4 in a splashproof fabric material that not only looks better but also gives it a better grip. The button placement has also changed. Where the Flip 3 has all of its butons on the top, the Flip 4 has them embedded into the fabric of the speaker and also on the hard plastic portion on the back.
Using Bluetooth version 4.1, the JBL has a range of about 10-15 meters before any serious sputtering began to interrupt playback.
JBL decided to pack a 3000mAh battery that gives you about 10 hours of constant playback and charges fully in 3.5 hours.
The lows are nice and full sounding for a speaker of this size. It can definitely be felt if you place it down on a table or desk and let the external bass radiators to go to work.
The mids were a little bit forward, just enough to make vocals a little bit easier to hear.
The JBL Flip 4 is small and portable, but the splashproofing and carring string takes that to another level. Flip 3 was one of the best speakers you can get for the price it makes sense that Flip 4 is the new holder of that title.
