Excerpt: Looking for an affordable way to turn your iPad, smart phones and other blue tooth devices into a "surround sound" environment?Well JBL has the answer. This handy, attractive and durable speaker is the one go-to product you must have to create great sound for all of your wifi devices.Not only is the...
Excerpt: Just ok. A bit disappointed that the speaker can only be charged with a wall outlet. I would have liked to have a speaker that could also be charged using a USB cable. Not conducive for traveling. Battery charge does not last as long as expected.
Excerpt: This speaker has great sound, but it will not pair with more than one phone. My wife and I each have an iPhone 5, and it will pair with my phone but not hers. I tried to return it, but Staples said I was past their 14 day return policy. Worst return policy ever!!

Summary: in terms of functionality, the device works fine. i will not repeat other reviews. i did not experience any BT disconnects or interruptions. However, the sound quality is mehh. There is some kind of hissing sound, no matter if i stream from my MacBook Air or my Galaxy Nexus.
Summary: Resorted to using cable on iPad3. While using Bluetooth, speaker cuts out at least once per song, once every few minutes. Tried re-pairing. Made no difference. This is even with the speaker sitting next to the device. No problem using it with iPhone 5 or iPad 2.
Summary: I've become spoiled by the clarity of non-distorted, full-frequency JBL sound. In fact, I was convinced the Motorola EQ7 with 4 JBL speakers, in a palm-sized frisbee, was the best sound in the most compact unit before Motorola discontinued it.
Pros: Compact size. Flips to vertical position and stays in place. Loud sound (efficient speaker) Responsive Bluetooth. Extremely solid build quality.
Cons: Fairly heavy--wife didn't want to carry it around. After huge build-up on an audio site, the sound disappointed. Acoustic piano sounded slightly "canned"; acoustic walking bass was slightly muddy and indistinct. Cannot charge with USB connection (one more adapter not to misplace--and alkalines wo...
Summary: I bought the Jambox and Flip to compare side by side. If only the two companies could get together. JBL makes great speakers. Jawbone knows about Bluetooth. The Flip sounds great, much better than the Jambox, but the Bluetooth is terrible. It drops frequently and has a very small range.
