    What’s your opinion on the JBL Flip 4? I’m trying to decide between that and the Bose speaker but I was reading a list on another website and they actually listed the JBL higher than the Bose but a friend of mine seemed to suggest that the Bose is actually better. I’m just not sure and would love your opinion. Thanks in advance!

      That’s a tough one – they’re both great options. We would probably go with the Bose unless waterproofing is a big factor.
