Better-than-expected sound in a compact, waterproof enclosure

from Macworld
I thoroughly enjoyed listening to the Flip 4. It’s a great value for the money... Full review

Sounds great, portable, durable

from Chip Chick
It’s very portable, very loud, sounds great, has a long battery with easy micro-USB charging, good controls, has noise-cancelling speakerphone, and it’s waterproof. What else could you want?! Oh yeah, and it comes in fun colors!.. Full review

For the money the performance here is in the right neighborhood

from PhoneArena
The JBL Flip 4 is a really nice portable Bluetooth speaker. The design is attractive, the sound is decent, and we especially like its water-resistance. Battery life is solid, and extras like the speakerphone and support for voice-based assistants are really nice... Full review

Excellent portability, sounds great

from The Gadgeteer
I really like this little speaker. It’s small, super easy to pair and use, is plenty loud and dismisses the common “what if I get it wet or dirty” worries. There are better sounding speakers of similar size, but they’re most certainly not as rugged or as affordable... Full review

Waterproof Bluetooth speaker will make your summer lit

from Beta News
For $99 you cannot go wrong here. The JBL Flip 4 has everything going for it. The Bluetooth speaker is well designed, attractive, and rugged. Most importantly, it sounds amazing and can get loud -- great for small parties. While I absolutely adore the teal color, you can choose from many others, such as blue, black, and even a cool camouflage design... Full review

Sounds very similar to the previous model

from Sound Guys
Is the new $99 Flip 4 worth it? Of course! If you already have a Flip 3 then you’ll have to figure out if being able to completely submerge your speaker is worth getting another. If it isn’t then you really don’t need this. But if you’re shopping for your first waterproof Bluetooth speaker and don’t want to spend a ton of money, there hasn’t been a better time do so...

Proof waterproof speakers are just getting better

from AppAdvice

At the time of this writing, JBL still offers the Flip 3, although at a slightly discounted price. Normally I’d say you should go out and buy the newer of the two products. In this case, the decision isn’t as clear-cut. If you’re looking for a waterproof solution and definitely want to use Siri with the speaker, go with the Flip 4. If the price is a factor and you don’t have to worry about dropping the speaker in a pool, the Flip 3 remains a good choice. Yes, you’ll get less time between charges and slightly less sound. However, unless you have both speaker mod... Full review

One device we’re glad to recommend

from NotebookReview
We think the JBL Flip 4’s combination of style, sound quality, and durable waterproof design makes it well worth its asking price of $99. This speaker produces enough sound to fill a living room with full, clear sound. The waterproof nature is an undeniable asset at pool parties, the beach, and in the event you’re not as careful with your devices as you want to be... Full review

Offers bags of value for the money

from Android Headlines
If you liked the JBL flip 3, then it stands to reason that you will like the Flip 4 as well. Although the two are not compatible with each other, the JBL Flip 4 takes most of the design points and features from the Flip range and improves on them. Most notably, with its waterproof nature. In many ways, this is the main aspect to focus on here. If you own the Flip 3 and do not need a waterproof speaker, then there might not be much value for you in upgrading – especially considering the lack of compatibility between the two JBL Connect versions...

An excellent portable Bluetooth speaker

from Pocketables
JBL charges a pretty penny for the Flip 4 but you get a lot for your money – excellent sound, waterproofing, JBL Connect+. If you can afford to buy two or three they’d make a great addition to any party or gathering. I’m giving them a recommend, with the full understanding that they aren’t cheapo speakers. If interested, you can pick some up on Amazon today for $99... Full review
