Flip 2: Top mini Bluetooth speaker improvesThe Flip 2 has its limitations, but the fact that it can play as big as it does for a small, highly portable speaker, makes it easy to recommend.
I'm David Carnoy and I'm here with the GBL flipped to this is the successor. 21 of the better meeting with -- speakers out there and you -- has made some improvements to the speaker a boat to the design. This now charges via micro USB rather than having a separate AC adapter which is nice and there's also some small other changes to design. The finish on the sides of the speaker East -- be hard plastic now has a sop to the touch finish and the buttons are embedded in two. -- speaker itself so they don't have any. Protruding buttons a but it does have the same features there's a built in speaker phone. The power is a little bit created with this one it is a six watt speakers -- only five what speaker that does help with. The -- it also helps provide will be clear sound when you do play at higher volumes of us this a little bit better sounding speaker in the original. However Jay -- did not improve the battery life. It's still at right around five hours and more moderate volume levels the last change involves the carrying case -- comes with -- it's a little bit -- here with this model. He -- the neoprene case. This while cause a couple of -- harder case with a little bit nicer case. All all a little bit nicer package all around -- the speaker does look almost identical. Unfortunately in upgrading the speaker Jay -- did manage to raise the price a bit. Than this price on this one is 1299. Vs the 999 -- and on the previous edition. Big question of course is the thirty dollars worth it. I would say yes you can -- it's for a little bit less online. On so the USB charging really is and -- -- and the sounds a bit better so this really does remain one of the best meaning Bluetooth speakers out there. I'm David Carnoy and that's the G he'll listen to. Thanks life.
