Its battery life of about 5.5 hours falls short of the 10 hours that is stated, so you might need to recharge it more frequently. However, this will depend on your usage patterns. However, it boasts excellent build quality and is certified to be entirely dust-tight and submersible in up to a metre of water for 30 minutes, meaning you don’t have to worry about it getting wet or dirty when taking it outside with you. It is also rated IP67 for dust and water resistance. The Clip 4 comes in nine different colors—some patterned—and weighs around half a pound. These colours include black, blue, camouflage, grey, pink, and red. A single 40mm, 5-watt driver is shielded by a grille that covers the rounded front and back panels. The top of the speaker is framed by an integrated carabiner, while the bottom has a USB-C connector. The play/pause and volume up/down keys are located above the large JBL logo that protrudes from the grille on the front panel. The play button can be double-pressed to skip forward a track, but interestingly, there is no backward track option. On the left side panel, there is a dedicated power button as well as a Bluetooth pairing button. Rubberized strips on the back panel help the speaker stay upright when it is placed flat on a desk. The Clip 4 nevertheless maintains an IP67 designation, which means that it is completely waterproof and dust-resistant, despite the USB-C connector being exposed. The speaker can be immersed trouble-free for up to 30 minutes in one metre of water. Although Bluetooth signals cannot be received underwater, the Clip 4 can be thoroughly wet without suffering any damage. The USB-C to USB-A charging cord is the only item that is included. The Clip 4 supports AAC and SBC Bluetooth codecs but not AptX and is Bluetooth 5.1 compliant. JBL predicts a battery life of approximately 10 hours, although your mileage may vary depending on your volume settings.
