JBL Flip 4 Bluetooth Wireless Speaker Review

The JBL Flip 4 is really an amazing little bit of technology, combining great sound, impressive volume, versatility in the form of IPX7 waterproofing, and useful features like voice assistant integration, a speakerphone, and the ability to link multiple speakers together.  All this adds up to an exceptional option that makes it one of the best portable bluetooth speakers available today.  At between $90 and $100 depending on where you pick it up, the Flip 4 is more expensive then a lot of the Chinese brands you'll find on Amazon but the payback is a full featured product backed by a company with a lot of experience in the audio industry and I believe it's worth the money.  Find out more at JBL.com.
