First Look: JBL's $99 Flip speaker stands tall

0:56 /

This mini Bluetooth speaker, which lies down or sits up, is a decent bargain

-Hi, I'm David Carnoy, executive editor for CNET.com, and I'm here with the JBL Flip Bluetooth speaker. Really, the important things to know about the speaker are that it's relatively well priced at around hundred dollars. It sounds decent for the money. It also gets about five hours of battery life. It has a built in rechargeable battery. And it does flip, meaning it goes into a horizontal or vertical position thus the name the flip. Apart from that the other key feature here is that it does have built in speakerphone functionality like the Jawbone Jambox. This is basically a little bit cheaper than the Jambox, sounds about as good, and this one also comes with its own carrying case, a neoprene carrying case. This does come in two colors this is the JBL Flip Bluetooth speaker. It is recommendable for the money. I'm David Carnoy thanks for watching.
