Aside from playing music, you can also chat with faraway friends and relatives by a phone call or even Skype since it has a built-in microphone for speakerphone calls; you can have two-way communication through the JBL Clip 2 Waterproof Portable Bluetooth Speaker.

This would be fun, especially if you want the whole family to hear from and speak with a member who is far away or overseas. The JBL Clip 2 Waterproof Portable Bluetooth Speaker would be a great addition to any family gathering, such as a reunion or occasions such as Thanksgiving, Christmas, or New Year.

For devices that do not have Bluetooth capability, the JBL Clip 2 Waterproof Portable Bluetooth Speaker comes with its own integrated 3.5mm audio cable that connects to a regular jack; just in case you haven’t brought your smart device with you and you have non-Bluetooth devices, the JBL Clip 2 Waterproof Portable Bluetooth Speaker will still be very useful.

Disadvantages

According to one user, the JBL Clip 2 Waterproof Portable Bluetooth Speaker’s audio was quite choppy, and its battery only lasted for two hours, even when fully charged. Another user complained that after buying a pair because of the daisy-chain connection feature, it was hard to connect them to any device, and would only connect to certain devices.

Verdict

What is unique and advantageous with the JBL Clip 2 Waterproof Portable Bluetooth Speaker compared to other portable Bluetooth speakers is its daisy-chain feature which enables it to wirelessly connect to another speaker of the same kind, allowing you a full wireless audio system if you connect it to your device for use as a music player.

I'm Jenny. I moved to rainy Ireland several years ago and I had to learn how to be prepared for the constant spring/fall that is the weather on the Emerald Isle. If you're always cold, always miserable because of the rain, maybe it's not the weather at fault (all the time 😀 ). A wise man once told me that there's no bad weather, just bad clothes. So I acted accordingly 🙂
