Não sou técnico especializado, apenas um apreciador diletante. Tenho uma JBl Flip 4 há 4 anos e acabo de adquirir uma Flip 6, após muitos reviews favoráveis de especialistas e youtubers entendidos no assunto. No que diz respeito à minha percepção até agora, no cara a cara da Flip 4 com a Flip 6 não ouvi nada tão significativo assim para quase 5 anos depois e 400 reais a mais no preço (quando comprei a flip 4, paguei algo em torno dos 230,00), exceto uma melhora nos níveis de agudos, notadamente quando manipulados pelo app JBL connect (este sim, um avanço). Os graves tão propalados da Flip 6, não senti tanta presença assim. Mas esta é uma percepção pessoal e sujeita a revisão, pois ainda vou testar com outras fontes além das minhas comuns (notebook e celular). Por enquanto, comparativamente, achei muito hype para a Flip 6 por pouca entrega. Se o preço da Flip 4 se mantivesse no patamar de 4 anos atrás, diria sem dúvida, para ir de Flip 4 sem medo.
