If I were to rate the sound on this URGE BASICS speaker compared to the JBL Flip, I would rate them 3.5 stars, to JBL Flip's 4.
I'm not sure if Urge Basics uses weaker Bluetooth internally, but expect to get frequent disconnects, audio skipping, and just poor range going more than 6 feet away, even less if there is a wall. I also did the easy modification of disconnecting the super bright and distracting led light that blinks at regular intervals to know the device is on and paired. I have liked the battery life, since it's lower quality sound being pumped through, the battery lasts 7+ hours on a moderate volume. I have also liked the volume up/down buttons and the Play/Pause button on top that doesn't work with every multimedia player on your device, but it gets the job done and was convenient.
No Bluetooth Speaker is perfect. I am also not saying the JBL Flip (now a few hardware revisions old) is similar to this, it's just what I ended up having in the year since I purchased it.
Get this URGE BASICS bluetooth speaker for the cheap price, solid construction, groovy colors ( had blue!), controls, MicroUSB charging, and Line In and Line Out aux connections! Line Out means you can daisy-chain multiple speakers or create a bluetooth connection to a stereo setup. Line In means you can connect this speaker with a wired connection (without using Bluetooth!) for those older devices that don't have BT.
What I have NEVER seen discussed is the dramatic positive (or negative) effect that the EQ setting on the audio source can make. Using the EQ adjustments on my iPhone, I can make this thing sound really good or flat and dull as a pancake. Adjusting EQ settings really can make a HUGE difference in the sound quality of any BT device, especially something this small.
I have owned mine for over a year and have lugged it all over the world with zero issues. The ONLY negative issue was the flashing blue LED on the front while in use. Very annoying, but simply fixed with a 1/2 in strip of black tape over the LED light.
Bottom line, the Soundbrick really is a great performer, even when stacked up against even much more expensive compact BT speakers. I give it a strong buy at anything under $40.00. You can always do better at $200.00+ but this is a really great value for the money.
And that's how it saved vacation! For all the rainy days we had, I was absolutely thrilled I had this with me.
+ Since I've had this, I can never go back to the cheap, tinny hollowness of regular computer speakers, when for 7 years It never bothered me.
+ On the loudest setting it plays to any room on the same floor of my house.
+ While I shower, I can hear it beautifully over the running water and noisy bathroom fan.
+ Bluetooth has never once failed, only crackles a bit when the device is about 20 feet or more away.
+ It holds a charge like a champion. I have no idea how long it lasts, but I've gone days without charging it, and it doesn't mind at all.
+ Uses the same charger as Android devices, so my Nexus 7, phone, and speaker need only one charger.
+ It's highly durable. It's been through falls, sat in shower steamy bathrooms, shoved and jostled in bags, totes, suitcases, it's tumbled all throughout my car and it looks brand new.
I'm so glad I had this on vacation, and it's been a lifesaver several other times. For the price, this is a total steal. I would recommend it to anyone and will probably end up buying some as gifts. And the blue color is perfect!
