What customers say about "Interfaces"
JBL Clip 3 Portable Bluetooth Speaker
  • Really good sound quality and volume. Amazing connectors.
  • No worries, good sound, good range and good ports.
  • The bluetooth connectivity module is intuitive and works perfectly.
  • Great charging port. Easy enough to use.
  • Noisy auxiliary input when charging; very aggressive dynamic range compression.
JBL Flip 4 Waterproof Portable Bluetooth Speaker
  • The charging cycle doesn’t last long and the speaker comes with a nice USB cable for charging.
  • A big plus is that it doesn't have the additional weight/headache of batteries as it's usb chargeable!
  • Connection via USB works without problems, the battery saves a charge for a long time.
  • I wish the charger came with a plug in for a wall and not just the USB cable.
  • The micro usb connector is just too weak or doesn't give enough support and ends up breaking on the unit.
