All I can say is wow! This speaker is very loud and sounds great. I can't believe the price either. My brother just got the beats pill, it's cool and all but this speaker is just as loud and has way better mids, and lows. At a 3rd of the price of the beats....it's definitely the best bang for your buck! Plus it's water resistant! Perfect for portability and out doors at the lake! You wouldn't want to get your $200 beats pill wet!
Nice little speaker
I chose a 5 star rating for this product because it operates as designed and exceeded my expectations. It is not stereo but the sound is rich for a small speaker. I use it on my boat, the blue tooth works well ,the battery life is very good and when paired with my phone I can take a call without missing a beat.
cool features, good sound.
This is the fourth bluetooth speaker we've added to our household, so we have a good comparison. It's equal in quality to another we bought for about the same amount of money, and much better than our other two, which are smaller and not waterproof.
The speaker is about 5 inches in diameter, so a very good size. Sound quality is about as good as you could expect from a little speaker like this. Plenty of volume. Not perfect range, but it is what it is. Of course we love that it's waterproof, so we can put it out by the pool. It was really easy to connect the bluetooth as well.
Not crazy about the bright blue, but it makes it very easy to see. The ridges on the sides make it easy to hold on to. A loop on the back allows you to clip it onto a backpack or whatever. Nifty feature that you can flip it face-down to mute it.
Our one complaint is that even though the back is square, the speaker easily rolls. Small issue, but worth noting.
Anyway, we tested this out on Fourth of July with a group of friends and it was a total hit. Would definitely recommend it!
I am not a techie kind of person but this sweet little speaker is very cool to use. I simply charged it as soon as I got it. Then the fun began when I started to play around with it. The sound is great for me...perhaps more musical listeners might want more but for me it was great. It's basically a blue tooth speaker that I can use at my desk or even outside on our deck. I can use it with all of my iPods and iPads and iPhones...it's totally wireless and again...it's fun! It's not a huge investment and it's portable. It's affordable and a great value for the price. After playing with this for awhile...I think the sound is awesome. I was using songs from my iphone and I loved it. To turn it off you merely put it upside down. It even charges rapidly. It will be really fun outside on a picnic or at the beach or lake! It's blue...and really cute to look at!
Pleasantly surprised with the sound quality
I've only had this for about a week but so far I love this speaker. I already have a pair of HMDX Jam Plus Bluetooth speakers that operate together in stereo and I really like them as well. I honestly thought this couldn't be as good as they are but it's right up there on par with that other system - and this is one speaker to their two.
At first I thought it would be problematic that the on/off switch is hidden underneath the removable compartment (because the entire blue rubbery shell is what products the speaker from humidity and water, allowing it to be splash proof) but I love the feature that lets you simply turn the unit speaker side down and it automatically powers itself off. Then all you have to do is push the button right there on the outside to get it to turn on again.
I love that this is portable and it is loud enough to fill up the entire yard around the pool. I have no complaints about this at all and would highly recommend it.
Looks and Sounds Good
This is a pretty impressive little Bluetooth speaker. It looks really cool in a light blue shell, and is pretty light and portable. This speaker is on the cheaper end of the Bluetooth speakers that I've seen, but it doesn't disappoint. The sound is pretty impressive for a cheaper speaker; this doesn't match up with the Sony or Bose Bluetooth speakers I've been able to hear, but those go for at least $100 more. This speaker is splashproof and works best as an outdoor speaker. It has a nice hook so you can hang the speaker up high. Pairing, as usual, is pretty easy, and you can always use the headphone jack if you don't have access to Bluetooth. Overall, this is a pretty impressive speaker.
I really Luv this... You'll never miss a call cause your music's too loud..So blast it
My son bought me the Blue one. I luv it. LOUD!!! I use it around the house while I do House Chores. My music stops when my cell phone rings. I manually answer my phone and it automatically connects to speaker so I can continue with my chores cuz it has a built in mic. Very clear on both sides.. I really Love it... I bought the Pink one for my Office... I'm in the process on purchasing the Black one for my BF... I can't very well give the
Blue one... It was a gift from my son.
A Splash Proof Speaker!
This speaker took me a little bit longer to use. I have never used bluetooth technology and for some reason I couldn't connect it easily. Of course a friend of mine did it with ease and off we go! the sound is great and it is a very convenient speaker to have outside or out by the pool. I just love it and highly recommend it. A nice little speaker with great sound. I'm not a fan of ear phones or ear buds so this is great for me.
It might get loud by the pool
This is a handsome loud speaker about the size and shape of a cereal bowl. Basically it sounds great and works very well. It's rubberized and the plugs are covered so it's splash-proof and perfect for outdoors, the beach, or anywhere where it might be exposed to a little rough treatment.
Connecting is a breeze - they've really gone for simplicity here. If the speaker is on but not connected to anything, it automatically goes into pairing mode. In other words, there's no button you have press to get it to connect, just go onto your device's bluetooth settings and it should show up. Once you connect it beeps and you're off to the races.
THere is volume control on the speaker (as well as phone control), which is nice, but it is a separate setting from the volume on your phone so you might need to adjust both for maximum volume. Also, you can't control FF or REW from the speaker.
It's a pretty heavy speaker, and can sit either on it's base (pointing up) or on it's side (as in the picture) projecting in a particular direction. It can also hang from the little fabric hook attached to the base. Because it's so heavy it can really bang on the bass and it really does sound great. Finally, you can turn it off simply by flipping it over and leaving it that way for 30 seconds. Easy peezy.
There're a few other features that may interest you - it comes with a weird cable that has both a headphone and a micro-usb at one end and USB at the other. There's no AC adapter so you'l' need your own or I guess charge it up throught the computer. You'll also need a standalone stereo-mini cable if you want to play something that only has headphone-out. But c'mon, you're buying this for the Bluetooth so who cares?
Battery life (so far) has been very good, I get hours and hours of use out of one charge. I've yet to use the speakerphone feature, and never really expect to.
This is a beach party waiting to happen right here.
Perfect for beaches or boats
Very nice product for this price. Also very nice sound considering it's price ans size. Only con I see so far is that is doesnt come with a charger, only with a usb cable. I used my iphone charger with it's cable.
