Real music fans never compromise with the sound quality, especially when it comes to price. It doesn’t matter how much it costs; they are ready to pay. JBL has produced Flip series by keeping this fact in mind. After the success of earlier versions of Flip series, JBL brought Flip 4 with all-round features.
If you look at initial models of Flip series, you will miss the water-resistance feature, but JBL finally launches Flip 4 that is rated with IPX7 certification. Few more features about this speaker are long-lasting battery, voice assistant integration, etc.,
Inside The Box
As JBL Flip 4 is a premium speaker, the packing of the speaker is also looking premium. When you open the box, you will get a pouch containing a quick start guide and warranty details. After that, you will find a Bluetooth speaker placed on very soft cushioning. There is also a JBL micro USB cable for charging. The quality of the cable is also premium.
When you hold the speaker in hand, you will feel the quality of the speaker. JBL has done exceptionally well engineering on this speaker. Flip 4 is wrapped in the wire mesh combination that not only gives JBL devices an attractive look but also contributes to the sturdy exterior that protects the internal components from the elements.
Additionally, the rubber end caps that sit over the exterior passive radiators add some extra soft feel. The exterior passive radiators themselves have a more rounded appearance. At the backside of the speaker, there are two ports, i.e., charging port and 3.5mm audio port, that are covered under the tight rubber port.
Now let’s take a look at the button to access the device. The speaker has four buttons built into the wire mesh toward the back of the speaker and two buttons built into the plastic bar that runs along the back of the device. A Play button and the volume up, down, and Bluetooth pairing button are located in the wire mesh.
The Play button can be used to access either Google Assist or Siri.
The JBL Flip 4 hands down sound great at all levels, i.e., low, high, and mid-range, and pumps out insanely great sounding bass for its size, driven by the passive radiators. Additionally, the audio from the JBL Flip 4 carries well outdoors and will crank out a clean and clear sound that will reach everybody’s ears at a backyard party or pool.
Passive radiators work exceptionally well. When you play bass-riched songs, there is a vibrating movement on both sides of the speaker that looks very interesting.
One of the strong reasons to buy this product is its outstanding battery performance. Coming with 3000 mAh capacity, JBL flip four manages to perform up to 9 hours at a 60-70% volume level. This is something that most of the people are looking for. It takes nearly 4 hours to get fully charged from zero to a hundred percent.
JBL Flip 4 is an IPX7 rated speaker. An IPX7 rating means the speaker can survive even in water for up to 30 minutes. Also, this speaker is dustproof so that you can use this on the beach too.
Flip 4 is compatible with the JBL Connect+ feature. This feature allows you to connect multiple JBL Bluetooth speakers at a time to experience the party atmosphere. You can connect up to 100 speakers together.
Call quality of the speaker is good enough to hear the clear voice from both ends, but there should be an improvement in noise cancellation.
In my opinion, JBL Flip 4 is an all-rounder speaker packed with almost all essential features of an ideal Bluetooth speaker. I strongly recommend this speaker if your budget allows you.
