    I just bought a JBL flip and it sounds much better than the Jambox in my opinion. One issue is the range. I can't get 10 to fifteen feet away and the signal stars cutting in and out. Is this a acceptable range? I borrowed a Jambox and its range was probably double the flips. Thanks for your help.

    I just noticed signal goes much farther using iTunes rather than Spotify. I wonder why that is? streaming effects bluetooth signal?

    10 meters is the generall bluetooth headset limit, as its Wireless transmit power over this may harmful our body. :rolleyes::rolleyes:

    I also had the JBL Flip and had the exact same problem. Returned and bought the Creative 200 on Amazon and the range is more like 30 feet.

    That's for you to answer. Range is going to depend on the devices, obstructions and interference.

    Sound quality is more important to me. I used it to replace my iPhone night stand docking, it is more convenient to me.
