I like music. When I'm in the car, the radio is almost always on, whether in FM, or with a flash drive, and more often the mobile phone connected via Bluetooth, Randomly playing all the songs in my collection, that are in microSD card 64 GB, because I spent all my CDs to MP3 few years ago and since then I can not remember coming back to use the physical media. When I'm working on PC, is Spotify which is usually connected, because I like to vary quite a selection and not be restricted to my MP3 library.
But there is a situation where I have not had a “solution” defined, that is when I'm doing some chore around the house. In these occasions like that sound with me. If indoors can even use your PC or Receiver Yamaha RX-A830, which also accesses directly my MP3 collection Synology America DiskStation 2-Bay Diskless Network Attached Storage (DS214play). And then there's the Zotac ZBOX ID83 to access the Spotify. But, when the work is away from home, you can not take the Receiver Yamaha RX-A830 with me, and do not like to leave it in an excessively high volume, after all there are neighbors. At such times usually use an MP3 player in the form of car or Radio Multi-Banda Mundial Tecsun PL-660 FM, AM (Medium Wave), Shortwave, Long Waves and Escuta Aeronautics. But when I'm sick of my collection and FMs, sometimes I ended up doing some gambiarra, how to connect the Full Range FM Transmitter with USB Port C007B Black no PC e sintonizar o Tecsun PL-660 the frequency-selected. And so I heard on Spotify Tecsun PL-660.
I never gave much thought to Bluetooth speakers, always found the sound quality somewhat tolerable. Until returning from international travel and passing through Duty Free Dufry in Guarulhos Airport, there was a JBL Flip 2 running. I was impressed with the sound quality from such a small speaker. There were other Docks, including other brands, but other larger JBL left back. I know that Dufry It is not good to buy electronics. Always just buy perfumes and chocolates, which are the items they have good prices. But I made an exception because they were a promotion when purchasing above a certain amount (I do not remember exactly how much) and paying in real, they did the conversion of dollar in US $ 1,00 by R 2,99, being the normal day price was already at R $ 3.30 ~ 3.40. Thus it was convenient to carry out the JBL Flip 2, if only to lower the price of other products. Later regretted, I should have bought more chocolate and left to buy JBL Flip 2 on the Submarino, who at the time it was even a bit cheaper than in Dufry, and in many installments without interest, because Brazilians like enough to pay an embedded interest. 🙂
Arriving home, I did the tests with the JBL Flip 2 and I was quite pleased with the result. Its operation is very simple, it has only 5 buttons, one for connecting, two for controlling the volume, one to pair a new Bluetooth device and another to answer the phone. It supports Bluetooth and also has a 3.5mm input (P2) to connect devices without Bluetooth. Connect your phone is simple, just pair and all mobile multimedia sound is directed to the JBL Flip 2. Also gives to direct audio calls, and so answer calls directly by JBL Flip 2, it also has a built-in microphone.
The battery JBL Flip 2 lasts until 5 hours. It's enough to take it with me in any household chore around the house. Simply connect Spotify on mobile, connect the JBL Flip 2 and I can hear music with variety. The Roteador ASUS RT-AC68U Dual Band Gigabit Router 802.11ac Wireless-AC1900 guarantees the WiFi coverage for the whole house.
The charger JBL Flip 2 It is to plug in the North American standard (Type A). I thought it was because I had bought in Dufry, but some time later bought another JBL Flip 2 to give this, this time in American, and an even better price. To my surprise, the charger also came with plug in the North American standard, incompatible with the Brazilian standard sockets. You can also charge it with a USB port any, for out of it the cable is a USB cable <-> Micro USB common, such that the most of the current cell. On the back there 5 small LEDs that indicate the load the JBL Flip 2 during charging.
The JBL Flip 2 It is available in black, Grey, yellow, blue and red. I preferred the black. He has two 6W RMS speakers each. The full charge time is 3 hours and the battery lasts up 5 hours running, depending on the volume used. Also gives to use it plugged in. The battery non-removable lithium-ion battery is 2000mAh and 3.7V.
The JBL Flip 2 It operates in the frequency 100 Hz a 20 KHz. They left out only the frequencies below 100 Hz, that those who are normally heard by sub-woofer, which of course would not fit in a device only 160mm high and 65 mm diameter.
In short, I was quite pleased with my JBL Flip 2, using it several times a week, and no more headaches to bring Spotify to where I am. My assessment is very positive.
