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

JBL Flip 2 is proof that you need not sacrifice portability for full rich sound, or vice versa. It's the perfect partner for your smartphone or tablet and its music library, with no wires to break, lose or tangle. JBL Flip 2 streams the music wirelessly by means of Bluetooth, so your mobile device stays mobile. Because you use your phone for phone calls, JBL Flip 2 has a built-in, hands-free speakerphone with SoundClear® echo and noise cancellation to keep your conversations clear and error-free at any volume.

Of course, Flip 2 wouldn't be JBL if it didn't have amazing sound. Twin drivers and a built-in bass port ensure the full, balanced sound you expect from JBL speakers with powerful bass for real, dynamic depth. Stay on the go with the JBL Flip 2's five-hour lithium-ion rechargeable battery.
