JBL Flip 2 by Harman

Why not read while listening to your favourite tunes?

Bluetooth speakers come in all shapes and sizes, from the traditional boom box style device to the TARDIS and Daleks from Doctor Who.

Haraman's JBL Flip 2 falls somewhere in the middle of the world's Bluetooth speaker range. It is a fairly modest update from the Flip 1 with dual 40 mm drivers and a custom tuned built-in bass port.

It wirelessly connects simply, and easily, with any Bluetooth device from personal computer to smart phone and delivers crisp and clear sound using Harman's very own SoundClear echo and noise cancellation technology.

It also has a customized microphone built in, enhancing its functionality so that you can use to take and make phone calls while connected to your smartphone.

It also works with near field connection (NFC) enabled devices, without the need to use Bluetooth.

But the best thing about the JBL Flip 2 is the broad range of funky colours it comes in and the superb carry case that it slips into for that winter road trip to the snow – wherever that is for you.
