JBL announces Flip 2 Bluetooth speaker for listeners on the move

JBL is a well known company that unveiled its Flip 2 wireless Bluetooth speakers for a more casual consumer demographic

Audio maker JBL added its Flip 2 Bluetooth-enabled portable sound system into a crowded audio market at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), a refresh to the company's popular Flip speaker. The device is powered by micro-USB and no longer needs an AC adapter, with improved speaker and speakerphone clarity. Rated with five hours of battery life, which isn't as good as it could be, the Flip 2 is still a solid speaker that provides good quality audio playback.

"It's much more than a portable sound system," said Michael Mauser, HARMAN Lifestyle Division President, in a statement. "With dual, performance-tuned drivers and a built-in bass port, it's a party in the palm of your hand."

 

The JBL Flip 2 will be released later this year with a $129 price tag.

 

Bluetooth speakers are great for providing wireless audio in a compact, portable form factor, but sound quality has only recently started to progress. JBL and other established manufacturers are pushing the boundaries for consumers to have a small, energy-efficient product when listening to music.
