I originally purchased this speaker because I needed a way to listen to my music, etc. in the car while my kids watched their DVDs through my minivan's audio system. I didn't want to spend a ton of money on something that I could ONLY use in the car (such as an fm receiver) though, so I found myself looking at bluetooth speakers. My Dad has a jawbone jam box speaker - but he paid an insane amount of money for it and when I found a review that compared the Photive speaker to the Jawbone and the Photive came out ahead, I was sold. Since I planned to use the speaker both in the car and on the go, I decided to spend the little bit extra and go with the HYDRA model for the water resistant/rugged features (I have two young boys - spills happen AND we spend a lot of time at the beach, on the soccer fields, etc where features like that come in handy). This speaker is FANTASTIC!!!!! The sound quality is AMAZING. The range is fabulous. We even did our own test comparing it to the Jawbone Jambox ($199.99) and I'd take the Photive HYDRA over the Jambox any day. Long story short? Buy this. It won't disappoint!!!!

Update 01-05-2015

The battery is still working great and gets charged less than once a week. I set the speaker on top of the stair rail and accidentally knocked it off. The speaker fell almost all the way down before hitting one of the stairs and bouncing into the wall across the way and then landing on the floor. My heart sunk and I thought there goes sixty bucks. I went to check on it and it had a small dent in the grill and a couple of the screws were a little bent. I turned it on and it still sounded perfect! That was 3 months ago by the way; durability on this speakers is awesome! I have been using it around water and have had no issues with the waterproofing either. I still use the speaker all the time and love it just as much as I did when I first got it.

Update 08-01-2014

Wow I love this speaker! I use it all the time and even my wife who has grown skeptical at my slight speaker/headphone obsession has admitted it was a good purchase. It is still going on the first charge somehow... I thought it might be dying three days ago when I moved my phone away about 6 feet and it started cutting out. I thought that I had found a good way to tell when it was dying.

I wanted to use it while washing some dishes but didn't want my phone to get wet so I set both the speaker and the phone in an open cabinet right above the sink. Somehow I remembered to stop the music but I left both devices connected while we went to the zoo. Four and a half hours later it was still on and I started playing some music again! And that cutting out I experienced at 6 feet disappeared.

The flashing blue light is a bit annoying especially in the dark. It can be easily fixed by turning the device because the led is recessed in one of the grill holes.

This thing is great. I take it in the shower with me so I can jam out while charging my phone in the other room. Although it's highly water resistant, I still keep it on a shower rack and not within the water spray. I haven't tested the IP66 rating and don't really want to find out how wet it needs to get before it stops working.
The controls on the top of the speaker work well with minimal delay when switching between tracks. I've also taken a few calls through the speaker and have had no issues with it.
It feels durable and the power switch, auxiliary port, and charging port are underneath a rubber cap which slips on tightly. I attempted to duplicate the paracord holster for it but never completed it however I like how it protects the rubber from scrapes.

What really prompted me to write this review near midnight is the fact that THE BATTERY NEVER DIES. I purchased this speaker mid November and use it a few hours a day several days a week.

----I only charged it when I took it out of the box and tonight, March 6, 2015 at 11:52pm the battery died.----

Worth every penny.
