Summary: Despite good sound fidelity for its size, the Flip is finally undone by its weak Bluetooth signal strength. The connection broke completely when I walked between the speaker and my iPhone, which were no more than a dozen feet apart. I rate it four for audio, one for connectivity: 2-1/2 overall.
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.
it is nice, but i don't understand why people say it sounds good

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.
Superb Sound & Easy to Use, as Long as You Don't Need to Rely on it's Bluetooth Functionality

Summary: My girlfriend wanted a portable sound system on which to wirelessly play her iPod, but she didn't want anything bulky. I own an Altec-Lansing (a sister company of JBL's) IM7 which I have had for years and which produces superb sound, but it is no longer in production and too large for her needs.
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 read a lot of review before I bought the Flip for X'mas 2012. It sounds ok, not as good as our Bose docking speaker. The Flip drops frequently if I move my apple computer to different direction even in the same room and has a very small range. it would lose the signal from 12 feet away.
