JBL Flip 2 Portable Wireless Speaker Review
When one takes a first glance at the JBL FLIP 2 portable wireless speaker, you cannot help but notice that the future has arrived. Everything about it speaks volumes about the innovator. The speaker has been enhanced with some of the latest technological features such as sound clear echo and noise cancellation.
This puts it on a whole new level, with such like features the performance of the speaker is state of the art. The JBL Flip 2 portable wireless speakers also comes with a great case which seeks to offer protection to the speaker.
The case is stylish and is available in the same color as the speaker. The word flip in the full name of the speaker came in as a result of the physical attributes of the speaker. It can be placed horizontally or vertically.
The JBL Flip 2 portable speaker has the necessary additions that the other speakers in the market lack or seem to be struggling with.
First of all, it is available in a wide range of colors. The physical shape is cylindrically making it easier to grip. Due to its cylindrical shape, the JBL flip speaker can either be horizontal or vertical.
Another plus for the design is that either way you put it the speaker will tilt upward slightly. It weighs roughly 381g which is relatively lightweight enough for the user to carry around in their pocket if their pants are not tight.
Life has been made easier by the user on this front. Simply when one turns on the speaker for the first-time it automatically begins advertising its presence and all that is required is for the user to select and pair.
Apart from the Bluetooth connectivity, the JBL flip 2 speakers has gone a notch higher, and there is an NFC tap to pair option as long as your device is NFC capable. For the devices that have none of the above connectivity options, the speaker has an auxiliary jack at the back for such devices.
This speaker proves that indeed nothing is perfect. Its battery life is well below the expected requirement. They can be used for a maximum 5 hours when playing music at higher volumes.
This means the speaker has to be charged at nearly close intervals. However, the speaker can be charged via USB meaning a user can connect it to his or her computer and keep it charging throughout. In some way, poor battery life hinders the speaker’s performance.
The sound clear echo and noise cancellation technology in the speaker works to deliver quality and good sound from the JBL speaker. The speakers have just enough bass and were once subjected to a sort of music test.
Surprisingly the speaker performed well in all genres of music. Since speakers may deliver good sound when handling music with low tones but when it gets to the high and mid tones it is just a mess.
For the JBL Flip 2 portable wireless speaker, this is a thing of the past, and it can take on any music thrown its way.
Q: What is the price?
A: For the JBL flip 2 its price is well a bit higher than the other portable speakers since it is a force to reckon with. For those who love quality things, price will not be an issue.
Q: What is the duration of its lifespan?
A: There is no direct answer for this question but what is put into consideration is the way the user handles the speaker. It was designed to last apart from the challenges its battery has.
Q: How portable is it?
A: Very much portable, it can even fit in your pocket. It can also be carried on the palm while listening to music. The JBL speaker is very much portable from the look of its design.
I would vouch for it anytime any day. The speaker has been designed with the current needs of this generation youths in mind. It has a rather cool, appeal enhanced features and above all modified to be able to be used by users of all walks of life whether young or old.
The only undoing is the little battery life that it has. This can be overlooked since it has been overshadowed by important features which are only found in this device.
