Summary: This is a neat little speaker. It worked great for my friend's smart phone when we were gathered at the cabin for a long weekend. I bought one to connect to my PC (Windows 7) and was unable to get it to work after trying numerous online remedies described by other users. I contacted Harman/JBL customer service and was informed that I require the A2DP driver, which they are unable to supply.
Summary: Arrived without set-up or quick set up instructions. Got it to work on occasion. Sound is great but not constant. Got lots of offers of help from Amazon, but in the long run got screwed for return shipping charges (partly my fault -- lack of knowledge on return policy). I have always loved being able to find what I want on Amazon, but returning is a real hassle, problems are a hassle, getting to discuss the problem is a hassle. I am learning to shop local.
Summary: I bought the flip at the end of July and I was impressed with the sound considering the size. It doesn't compare to the kilpsh sound dock in terms of sound but the Bluetooth and portability make up for it. People are impressed that such good sound comes out of such a small speaker. It syncs well with apple devices and android. The battery is pretty good. I was able to get about 4-5 hours of continuos music.
Summary: Recieved as present from my children, sounds amazing, I used to do a lot of sound engineering before they were born, on this I could hear aspects unavailable with professional equipment however, JBL claim it delivers five hours battery life on a full charge, the fact is, it achieves only half this so, if like me, this is an important consideration for you, go with a Roth or Goodmans 2:1 with separate sub, you'll get as God a sound but at least you'll know where the power...
Summary: Couldn't really fault it to start with: Alarmingly small when you unwrap it but very good sound for such a small package and the Bluetooth quality is barely less than hard wired. Use on battery and you can take it with you from room to room - wherever you happen to need to be.....then it stopped working. The failure mode is that it turns itself on and off at random. Very annoying; will be going back.
On the negative side it sounds worse than 'The Brick' that I was able to get ...

Summary: On the plus side it comes with a case and the NFC pairing works well. On the neutral side it comes with a USB output charger with a bunch of different adaptors which personally I'll never use. On the negative side it sounds worse than 'The Brick' that I was able to get for £13. Considering this cost £50 I was expecting a marked improvement but I guess I was being naive.

Summary: On time delivery. Nice packaging. JBL flip 2 is awesome. Clear and loud sound with inbuilt base. connectivity ~10m through closed door also. PLAYTIME LESS THAN 5 HRS. Its a defective piece, i want its replacement at that same price!!
Excerpt: good sound for the price. however, there's no way the battery lasts anywhere close to 5 hours. you're lucky to get 2 5 hours out of it. also charger isn't a usb. so there's no way to charge it in your vehicle.
