What customers say about "Key Specs"
JBL Flip 4 Waterproof Portable Bluetooth Speaker
  • The battery life is amazing and I believe it does indeed last for the time stated here, if not longer.
  • It is robust, has a great sound, and the battery life is pretty good too.
  • The battery life is good, I've only once used it from full charge to empty and it almost lasted the 12 hours stated.
  • Battery life 12-15 hours. We have it sailing but haven’t had to test its water resistance yet! Sound is excellent and I can walk round the house and down both ends of the garden without losing it
  • The battery life is shockingly bad. A full charge lasts about two hours when streaming music from my phone...

JBL Xtreme 2 Bluetooth Speaker with Rechargeable Battery
  • It's great that the strap comes with the kit because it would be hard to carry the speaker in your hands.
  • Although it is a rather heavy Bluetooth speaker weighing 5.27 ibs, it is convenient to carry thanks to a practical strap.
  • Just what I wanted to get. I am very pleased with this purchase because it is comfortable and can be hung on the shoulder, which will simplify its transportation.
  • Every day you can’t carry this speaker with you because it resembles a bag and takes up a lot of space.
  • When I saw her live I was surprised by her impressive size and i return her back because I did not need such a large one.

What customers say about "Interfaces"
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.
JBL Xtreme 2 Bluetooth Speaker with Rechargeable Battery
  • Two USB connectors are hidden under a tight fastener for charging two gadgets at once, a network connector, AUX and microUSB for updating the software.
  • Velvet rubberized plastic is used, I also really like fabric with special processing. It looks great.
  • JBL Xtreme successfully continues the balanced line of portable speakers of the brand: now “own” speaker for large companies has appeared in the assortment.
  • The sound is constantly being muted fort shorts period of time when using the aux cable on a low volume , this is very irritating as you always notice it.
  • When I took the speaker from the seller, I noticed that the USB port was broken and the cable in it just staggered.
