Wired

A slightly messy first pairing

from Wired
If you have $350 to drop on a pair of travel headphones, these are the ones to get—and the addition of Assistant only adds value. Not much, yet. But voice assistants are going to be awesome way before you need new headphones again... Full review

The versatile portable Bluetooth speaker

from Pocket-lint
If you're looking for a decent and relatively affordable speaker that you can throw in your bag, take to the beach, or wherever, then the JBL Flip 4 is a convenient solution. At the right volume it delivers decent sound that can fill small/medium size rooms without much hassle... Full review

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

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

NotebookReview

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
