Not sure why the thumbs down.. OP provided all the relevant links/Info and stated ymmv. I found that the purple and the orange were the only colors on clearance near me but all were in stock.

I also see that the Braven 705 speaker is on clearance for $23.98 in a few places

Anyone has any ideas?

TIA

I can't currently recall specifics on the JBL Flip 2, but out of all the bluetooth speakers we sell at Target (I work there, but under a different company), I always recommend the Braven speakers above all else.

My reasoning is pretty simple. The sound is expansive, the audio does NOT have a tinny sound (Altec Lansings suffer from this), and the battery life is incredible. Most speakers have on average 5.5 hours battery life, but the Braven speakers stand far apart with an average of 12 hours battery life. The Balance in particular has 18 hours of life! This is mindblowing considering every other speaker on our shelves.

The speaker also doubles as a power bank for cell phones (which probably explains the long battery life) and is waterproof to an IPX7 rating.

The only other bluetooth speaker I recommend to our guests are the Bose Soundlink Color... However, usually only to Bose fanatics, as most people can't be sold on the Bose premium price.

Bottom line is, these speakers are a STEAL at $40

EDIT: @40Glock, As far as I know, all three models of the Braven speakers should be on clearance. We recently started carrying UE Booms right around the time the Bravens got cleared out-- I have a feeling the UE Booms are simply taking their shelf space. The 705's have been on clearance for at least a month too, but this Balance one is fresh meat.

Good to know. I might even check again tomorrow to see if the Sunset Orange dropped in my area and snag a backup or two. I'm fairly impressed with sound quality given that it's a waterproof speaker. Definitely worth $40...probably even worth the $65 if you find it half off.

I would think so. It has a "boost" mode which cranks out a little more sound but probably at the expense of battery. It has a 4,000mah battery though that claims 18 hours of life so that's probably not much of a concern. Plus, you can return it or sell it easily for the $40 if it's not loud enough.
