My unit doesn't last 40 minutes before it is completely dead. The device claims it has an auto-shut off feature that kicks in after 10-15 seconds of non-use, and the device claims up to 25hrs of use. I will charge it fully then use it for a 20 minute shower, then use the soft 'Power' button on the front to turn it off/standby. If I'm lucky, I can get two showers out of the unit before it is completely dead.

Saw some reviews complaining about battery life but I saw one review where the seller replaced the reviewers unit (deeming the first one defective) so I thought I would receive similar treatment in case of a defective unit. Well I was wrong. After I expressed my concerns to the seller I was written back a response that in short says "Yea, there is an issue. Just use the hard switch in the back".

If I wanted to use a hard switch in the back, I would have purchased a product that only had a hard switch in the back, and not a product that claims to have a standby mode accessible in the front. I don't want to be prying open the back cover every time I am getting out of the shower with my wet hands because A)that is inconvenient and B)how long before all that moisture destroys the unit??

Don't sell a product claiming to have certain features that don't work. Either fix your product or remove the features from the product description.

I had just put in a new shower into my bathroom and while I had included sound into the exterior because of the sealed shower it wasn't easy to hear especially with the steam shower running.

I had been on the lookout for a work around. Found this item as pretty much the only reasonably priced waterproof bluetooth speaker.
I hemmed and hawed about purchasing it for about a month or so especially with the lackluster reviews over quality control.
Finally bit the bullet and bought it only to be delightfully surprised It was way louder then I had anticipated and even would kick off my android phones
voice actions programs (I have an S3 so it kicks off S-voice Samsung's siri competitor). Which allows me some control from inside the shower. The mike seems to work ok for this type of usage. Call quality on the other hand seems to be lacking only tried it maybe twice just to check it out but with my shower being particularly echo prone I would be surprised if any mic could handle the acoustics.

Other thoughts:
This thing is loud love that I can easily hear it with the loudness of my steam shower without it even cranked all the way up
Battery Life is nice and long.
Charging port for other devices seems silly. (Would be nice if I was going to use it for camping or somthing).

About 2-3 months after I purchased it I went to plug in the charging cord. And sadly the charging port came loose and fell into the cavity of the speaker. At this point it was unusable after it ran out of battery. This was disappointing as it is a main gripe mentioned in other reviews.

I was worried with the support based on how sparse the website is.

Cons:
If you plan on using this outside of the shower as well, don't expect Bose quality sound. It's made for the shower and sounds excellent, loud, and clear with the "acoustics" of a bathroom and running water. This phenomenon is similar to the one in which people singing in the shower are convinced they can be the next Rihanna or John Legend (see first three weeks of American Idol auditions and/or Simon Cowell clips on Youtube).

Can't remove the handle which is not a big deal. Would be nice if it offered suction as an option/accessory so location of speaker isn't bound to either the shower head, soap holder, or towel rack region (FYI, handle is flexible material).

Googling, or however you spell it, "Hipe Bluetooth Speaker" does not yield an official Hipe Twitter, Facebook, or Website but the product packaging does say that HipeUSA.com is the Official Website for this product. The website though is quite barren at this point in time.

Pros:
Does EVERYTHING is says it does as advertised. From my experience, only 40% of products not sold by Apple can claim that. Currently, I don't see a viable competitive product as far as what this one has to offer.

For iPhone 4S users like myself, pressing the Call button activates Siri so essentially the speakers will port Siri commands to your iPhone and he/she will read back responses through the speaker. So yes, you can now listen to the last text message you got, send a response, and set a reminder to pick your friend up from the airport this weekend all while taking a shower and not touching your iPhone in the process. No, you cannot see Siri's response to directions to the airport on the Hipe speakers.

[[VIDEOID:mo1BYDSJQR4FHRF]]My wife is always listening to her music and audio books while she puts on her makeup and gets ready in the morning. This speaker system is ideal for her. Don't let the shower option fool you into thinking that this is just for indoors use. It makes a great travel speaker for the outdoor deck, going to the beach or at a pool party. Just remember that it is waterproof to IPx6 or sprayed water and it is not submergible.

The speaker has great sound and is very loud. You can adjust the volume on your device and on the speaker itself. The front control panel allows you to adjust the volume, skip songs, pause music, answer the phone and link the Bluetooth communication to your device. You can even control your phone to forward the call to your smart phone or answer it right from the speaker. You can pause the phone call and go back to it when you are ready. The speaker will even redial the last number who called you or you can use voice commands if you have that feature on your phone. There is even an LED that will flash when the battery is getting low to warn you that it is time to charge it back up.

The speaker features a Lithium-Ion rechargeable battery that is rated to last 25 hours on a full charge. It is a nice looking speaker and it comes with a charging cable and an AC adapter. The instruction manual was easy to use and the setup and operation is very quickly done. I have included the instructions in my video so I hope they are useful to you.

The back of the speaker has a water tight seal that covers the charging port and main power switch. Make sure that you properly seal it before you put it in the shower. My video shows the speaker playing the Star Spangled Banner by the US Navy Band as it is a non-copyrighted song.
