JBL Flip 4 Bluetooth Portable Stereo Speaker

This summer I needed a new BT speaker and I tried a bunch of them in this size range and this one is by far my favorite. It’s about 95% perfect, which is about 50% better than all the others I tried. It sounds AMAZING – it’s among the loudest of the bunch, and it definitely has some of the best bass of them all thanks to the TWO side-mounted bass radiators. It sounds better than all of the cheaper models, as well as better than most of the more expensive models. Probably the SONOS and Bose Soundlink Mini sound better, but they are considerably more expensive and are not waterproof. That’s the thing – the FLIP 4 checks pretty much every box except two, which are relatively minor flaws. I wanted something rugged, with a decent battery, good controls, great sound, and that was not too bulky. Probably what we are all looking for.
