This little miracle was given to me as a gift, and I did not even think that the gift would be so pleasant. I’m a fan of “heavy” music and the sound of this speaker at maximum volume is a pure delight for me.
This model is the smallest and cheapest of JBL’s speakers. It is very comfortable, it fits easily in the hand, good quality plastic. Built-in carabiner attachment, which allows you to attach the speaker to anything, such as a backpack or bike. Convenient little thing.
The case of the speaker is very practical: there are almost no fingerprints on it, it is shock-resistant, the IPX7 Waterproof Rating allows it to be immersed in water for half an hour – and it will work as if nothing had happened.
Clip 2 has two options for connecting to the phone: via Bluetooth and the old good way through the mini jack. By the way, with a cable connection, the sound is a little louder, but in this case, the speaker cannot be used to answer calls. By the way, the built-in microphone is just great, friends say they hear me perfectly.
The speaker works without recharging for about 8 hours, although if you put the sound at full power, then only 5-6. There is no indicator on the speaker, but you can see the charge on the phone or tablet.
Control: using the buttons on the case, you can decrease/increase the volume, answer the call or turn off the power. You can also scroll the songs – but only forward.
Sound: the small size of the device does not affect the sound quality. Pure pleasant sound, quality bass and sufficient volume.
Comes with a short USB charging cable and instruction (no charger).
Comparison with JBL Flip 3
Well, of course, Clip 2 is much inferior in quality of sound and functionality. It does not have the function of combining several devices into one audio system, and there is a 3-watt mono speaker, versus a stereo 16 watts.
Both devices are made from the same materials – strong plastic, rubber and dense fabric on the front side. For the year tough use Flip 3 several times fell, but after that looks as good as new, and still holds a charge for a long time.
Clip 2 is perfect for a bathroom, kitchen or as a small portable speaker for walking or traveling. If you need a more powerful version – will have to add money and buy Flip 2 or 3.
