Everyone loves music. Lots of people can’t stand to be without it, even on vacation. If you’re the type of person who needs a beat to groove to all day long, you’ll want to invest in the JBL Flip 2.


Unlike other portable speakers on the market, this is an affordable option ($99.95 on the website) for those who don’t want to break the bank to get good sound. The JBL Flip 2 works with Bluetooth to stream music from your mobile device. It has a built-in microphone that allows you to answer phone calls.


Its rechargeable battery allows you to take it on the go, whether you’re headed to the beach or just out into your backyard. The battery itself lasts a number of hours without needing to be recharged.


Afraid of the noise around you interfering with your music? Don’t worry, the JBL Flip 2 has built-in Soundclear technology that cancels out noise and echoes. The speaker itself has an auxiliary input if you’re interested in plugging in an audio device instead.


The JBL Flip 2 comes in five different colors: black, red, teal, yellow and white. It also comes with a convenient carrying case to protect it from damage when not in use. Before you splurge on a new speaker, see what the JBL Flip 2 can do for you.
