JBL Clip 2: Top micro Bluetooth speaker goes fully waterproof
JBL's Clip speakers have been among our favorite micro bluetooth speakers.
And the new Clip 2, which comes in five color options and costs $60 is also a winner.
The Clip 2 has a couple of notable changes from its predecessors.
For starters, it's fully waterproof.
It also comes equipped with a real metal carabiner instead of the plastic clip mechanism found on the Clip and Clip+ And finally, battery life has been improved to eight hours from five.
Like those earlier models, this one has a nifty integrated audio cable for devices that don't support bluetooth, and has a built in speaker phone.
On the sound front, I didn't notice a significant improvement, but the speaker still relatively impressive for its tiny size.
And using JBL's connect app, you can now connect two clip [INAUDIBLE] to augment the sound but, you're just going to get more sound not better sound or more bass.
I'm David Carnoy for cnet.com and that's the JBL Clip 2.
Thanks for watching.
