When I was given a free set of Flips™ headphones to review, and learned how they could so easily turn from headphones to speakers, I couldn’t believe that this hadn’t been done before. It seems so simple and something that all music lovers would want. While Flips™ might not be in the same category as the wheel or sliced bread, I do think that they will revolutionize the headphone industry. (New discount added! Check bottom of post!)
Why would you want headphones that turn into speakers? These reasons will definitely appeal to teens and college students.
- You are out listening to music alone and run into friends and want to share your music.
- You are going somewhere with friends and want to listen to music together. You want great sound but don’t want to carry anything heavy. Flips™ have great amp’d hi-def sound in speaker mode yet they are the size and weight of headphones.
How difficult is it to turn Flips™ headphones into Speakers?
It is so easy a baby could do it. With the headphones off your head you just turn both ear cups around and then turn the volume up. That is it. The LED light will turn blue to let you know for sure that it is in speaker mode. To show how simple it is, here is a YouTube video to show you how to do it. The video is only 25 seconds, and you are shown how to do it twice
When you are using the Flips™ headphones in speaker mode it does wear down the battery. However, a USB charger is included. The more often the speaker mode is used the more often you need to charge. If you mostly use your Flips™ in headphone mode, you will rarely need to charge them.
There are other benefits to the Flips™ headphones. They are very comfortable to wear and while they don’t say noise cancelling in the specifications, they seemed to cancel out noise to me. The also come in a great looking and rugged case for storage.

Flips are the only headphones that turn into powerful speakers. You can purchase Flips headphones from the Flips Audio website. They sell for $120 but since they are really two audio items rolled into one, they are worth it. In fact Flips™ are better than two, there is no need to carry both speakers and headphones. One is better.
Full Disclosure: I received a set of Flips headphones for free to review. All opinions are completely my own.
