JBL Clip 2 Wireless Speaker Review
The colorful $50 JBL Clip 2 may be tiny—it’s just 5.5 inches long, carabiner included—but it makes a big impression. It’s our choice for the best small wireless speaker.
The presence of a clip feature suggests the JBL Clip 2 is design for an active on-the-go lifestyle, and indeed, it’s built tough. Its IPX7 waterproofing (safe for limited immersion) allows it to weather storms, and the carabiner is perfect for clipping to backpacks. The 8-hour battery will support your full day’s adventure. And it puts out clean sound too—maybe not audiophile quality, but it’s more than adequate for the real-world situations you’d actually use it in.
We like that you can wirelessly connect two JBL Clip 2 speakers to create true stereo, and it has a built-in mic for speakerphone calls too. But the real standout feature is its integrated 3.5mm audio cable—it’ll connect to all your old tech without needing to pack extra wires or adapters. That gives it a real edge over the competition, truly earning it the honors of being named the best small wireless speaker of the bunch.
