The JBL Flip Essential comes with 10-hours of playback, and an IPX7 water-resistance rating, making it durable enough to take to the beach or provide some background music at the pool. It can even be submerged in three feet of water for up to 30 minutes.

Like most JBL portable speakers, it comes with a durable and rugged fabric grille, and rubber housings that should keep all the inner workings protected from the elements. 

In terms of sound, the JBL Flip Essential comes with dual external passive radiators that should deliver powerful, bass-heavy audio – and with the ability to connect two speakers together, you have the option to create a really impressive soundstage at a low price. 

Connectivity comes courtesy of Bluetooth 4.1 – not the most recent wireless transmission standard, but enough to comfortably pair the speaker with your phone.
