The Flip 4 conveys forward an indistinguishable cylindrical design from its predecessors and is present in numerous colours. It’s easy to grasp with a single hand and isn’t too weighty either, with a weight of 515g. Almost the whole body is canvassed in a mesh fabric with the exception of the edges and a silicone strip that keeps running over the length of the speaker. The Flip 4 is intended to be utilized in a horizontal position as there are detached radiators on either end.
Buttons are present for controlling the music playback and Bluetooth pairing. They have a decent clicky sensation to them yet they aren’t lit up. In spite of the cylindrical design, the Flip 4 doesn’t move around, as the silicone strip swells out a bit, giving decent base to the speaker to lay on.
On the rear side, the Flip 4 has an illuminated power button, five LED lights to demonstrate to you the battery level, and an illuminated Connect+ button, which gives you a chance to link more than 100 Flip 4 units all at once. Besides them, is an elastic flap to secure the Micro-USB port and a 3.5mm auxiliary connector. The Flip 4 additionally has a loop with a pre-installed cord so you can hang the speaker on something in the event that you don’t have an appropriate surface for it to remain on.
Technical specifications and What’s New?
The JBL Flip 4 is fundamentally very much the same as that of the outgoing model with regards to the specifications. The Bluetooth version has a technology update to version 4.2. However, despite everything it has two 40mm full-range drivers that convey a total power yield of 16W. It bolsters a frequency response of 70Hz to 20,000Hz, and Bluetooth profiles having A2DP V1.3, AVRCP V1.6, HFP V1.6 and HSP V1.2.

JBL rates the battery life as 12 hours, obviously, this number is accomplished just in ideal conditions.
The speaker charges pretty fast on the off chance that you utilize a 10W (5V, 2A) power adapter. Users could charge it from around 10 percent to 100 percent in 1 hour and 40 minutes.
Audio performance is said to be truly amazing, considering the speaker size. The advantage of the Flip 4’s design is that good bass isn’t subject to any surface to reflect sound off. The bass is punchy in nature and can be experienced even at average volume levels (around 50 percent).

Waterproofing appears to function admirably. When handlers took a stab at dunking the Flip 4 in water, it kept working fine. Bluetooth range is said to be pretty good as well, and we didn’t confront any major synchronization issues notwithstanding when 15-20 feet away from the gadget, without a clear viewable pathway. They additionally didn’t think there was quite a bit of an audible sound contrast when changing to a wired connection.
