The sound is clean, crisp, and surprisingly loud for such a small speaker.
Michael Keeler
Finally I realized by digging thru the manual that the tiny indicator light on it is also a (hard to press) button.
Noah Hilsenrad
No returned emails or calls and just discovered that they don't even have the product available on their site.

First of all, I'm relatively sure this product is off the line by now. For the most part, it seems like many folks are having problems finding customer support, so I just wanted to share some of the simple fixes that worked for me.

Most problems should be solvable with the info in the woot.com forum archive here: […]

my experience follows

Out of the packaging, I ended up charging the device for some 2-3 hours as depicted in the instructions, but I was not able to get the transmitter and speaker to connect even though both lights were flashing. The instructions are somewhat undetailed, but the device should connect if you try the multiple device connection method in the manual. Hold the multiuse button on the speaker for 10 seconds till flashing quickly, then press the button/light on the transmitter for 5 seconds till it is also flashing quickly. I was quite relieved when I realized the instructions were at fault, not the hardware itself.

tl;dr press all buttons for a long time to make this device work

Purchased the unit July 2009 and have never looked back. Battery life is 6+ hours on a full charge, which has covered several Centuries this year. It easily syncs to and Bluetooth, but I do experience interference/signal drops due to my wireless Garmin cadence transmitter, so I have to carry my player in the right pocket of the bike jersey to avoid the drops. I'd recommend this product

Just got this thing. Started charging the speaker and plugged the transmitter into my iPhone 4. The transmitter connected right away and the speaker started playing, then wouldn't connect again after I unplugged/replugged it in. Figured out why and made it work...

- This was because I had to 'reset' the little transmitter- but there are no visible buttons! Finally I realized by digging thru the manual that the tiny indicator light on it is also a (hard to press) button. Fiddled with pressing that and it eventually reconnected.

- The speaker looks cool; compact and slick. But the buttons are also hard to press, and the main/power button is basically disguised as a 'cy-fi' logo. I.e. the logo is the mode indicator light AND button, but when you're pressing it you can't see what color the light is.

- The USB charging slot is covered by a tiny recessed rubber flap that is a pain in the ass to remove. Bah!

- In the product pics it looks like this comes with a few sizes of bike mounting rings; not so. Only came with one (the bigger one). But does have various rubber spacer strips to try. And no charging base- just a USB cord (not that I care about that).

- Speaker volume is decent. Kind of exactly what you'd expect for a little speaker like this. Should be fine for my commute through lower Manhattan and into Brooklyn.

- Pause/Play, Skip, and Volume controls work fine.

I purchased this device because I sometimes ride my bike alone and I like to listen to music as I ride. I do not like earphones because I can't hear others on the trail and I also cross streets where it is safer to listen for the traffic. The Cy Fi has worked flawlessly on my rides which average between 1 1/2 and 2 hours. I put my iPod in my pack and away I go. The only problem I have ever had is I sometimes forget to take the hard case off the iPod and it won't work. The wireless transmitter that I connect to the iPod must be push all the way in to work properly. The case I have for my iPod Touch must keep it from connecting all the wayCy-Fi Wireless Sports Speaker for iPod (Black). I recommend this product to all who like to listen to music while they ride, but don't like to have earplugs for safety reasons.

This really works once you get it started. Instruction manual is useless. As indicated by other reviewer you have to hold the multiuse button on the speaker for 10 seconds till flashing quickly, then press the button/light on the transmitter for 5 seconds till it is also flashing quickly. Once linked no problem. Speaker is very loud. Amazing sound quality. Very pleased with unit. I have ipod unit. There is a bluetooth unit which may have less linking problems. Long battery life is a plus. I was able to reach customer support at Cy-Fi on first attempt.

I bought mine on woot.com 3 years ago for 30 bucks and it worked great. However, if you're riding in a group/bike gang, it's likely you'll be the only one who can hear the music. DO NOT pay over $100 for one of these. There are so many types of these speakers out there now. You can also get creative and make your own.

Every time I'm ready to use it on a ride, it's dead.
The attachment plugs into the iPod but doesn't stay in well.

Bought additional speaker, doesn't work with other set.
Not easy to use. I spent $99. Maybe I would have different expectations at $35.

When I first got the speaker I was extremely impressed. I got it on sale for about $30 and if it ever goes to that price again i will recommend it but I would never pay the high price it's listed at now. The first biking trip I went on I hit a bump and it came apart. I put the top back on and rode extra cautiously the rest of the ride. My next ride I hit a bump and the entire speaker flew off my bike (including the mounting post it was attached to)! This time the top flew off and the wires that were inside connecting the rechargeable batteries to the area the charger goes ripped off and now I can't charge the speaker at all which makes it fairly useless. If you do spend the money then I suggest going ahead and getting some superglue to glue the speaker together before it gets a chance to break. You might also end up rigging the mounting post as I did since it kept flying off. Also, the wireless adapter didn't seem to have a good fit to my nano ipod so I had to use a hair tie to keep it connected during my rides. Other than that not too much to say...as I said. If they took the price down to $30 again I'd buy it in a heart beat and just go ahead and glue/rig everything up beforehand but that's only because I already know what has to be done. Sadly this only ended up lasting me about 10 rides (I will say that fully charged it does last a decent amount of time).
