This unit has great sound for movies and gaming, from such a small package, however, with mono broadcast, such as tv news etc, it sounds a little muffled. The volume is great, and the app lets you adjust the sound seperation, really does a great job. Now what I dont like, and I understand this is Apple's fault, is that it is in-convienent to charge your ipad, you have to remove the ipad from the Thunderstorm . Because of this, I may return the Thunderstorm. Just doesnt make sence that you have to remove to charge. And I would have prefered a usb charging cable, instead you get a big bulky charger.

Update 2-15-2013

Since I first reviewed the Thunderstorm, which was yesterday, Belkin has responded to inform me that indeed the ipad can be charged thru the case using the belkin supplied charger. Now this is a company that cares about thier products, responding to a review that fast. So I have changed my review to 5 stars and will not be returning the unit, in fact I will be ordering another, for my ipad 3, thank you Belkin.

Wow... When I first saw this in reviews for this year's Apple event, I was intriqued. Then as the next few weeks went by, more great reviews, from other folks, CNET, PC-mag, etc. Even just saw it reviewed in a recent Mac this month too.

I looked around for this and found it on Amazon for a good price and was had to get it for my upcoming trip. Well, I get this baby in 2 days, and immediately hook it up, download the Belkin Thunder App to tune the unit. It was so simple to hook up and get going - literally 2mins max... And 1min was downloading the App - Really!

So, as I am navigating to play my music, I can already "hear" a big difference, since the speakers are already on. I go and put on Eagles Hotel California, and wow!! I was holding the unit and thought it was loud because of proximity, so I go and put it in my kitchen and listen in my family room. This think gets loud and has pretty good fidelity throughout the high and low volume.

I also have a Bose Soundlink and for something that was small and portable, I think that unit is great - but it is a separate unit. A lot of people say that this adds a lot of bulk, well it does add another type of case that functions well as a stand. I think Belking needs to put better magnets in to close like an Apple Smart Cover - but I can turn it off too, so no big deal.

The iPad sound always has bothered me, and I have bought a lot of bluetooth speakers that have done well and function well. But this Thunderstorm is fully integrated and the sound is substantially better. If you know what a Bose Soundlink sounds like, you are getting pretty close - not as much bass, but the treble and mid range is excellent.

As good as this thing is, I really like the sound and multi-functional case.

I was very satisfied with the device. The speakers are very good and loud. I use it to show videos to a small group of nursing students (6). The sound is very good.

My only problem is the cover is not magnetized to put to iPad to sleep as the Apple cover does and sometimes I forget to put thew iPad to sleep and the battery is rundown.

The thunderstorm audio case rocks. No hassles, instant audio! The integrated, super loud speakers can fill up a room with great sound and no need for a blue tooth speaker. The iPad never sounded this cool.

Style Name: 30-Pin Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
There was a time when I used to think Belkin was the maker of cheap accessories for computers and other technology. Over time, that view changed as I looked into some of the products they were making. Nowadays, when I see a Belkin product I typically think of it as something of good, and often superior quality, yet always at an affordable price. I now consider myself a huge Belkin fan and look to them first when I need a technology accessory, phone or wireless device case, networking accessories, and so on.

All I can say about the Belkin Thuderstorm is WOW.....OK, I can say a lot more about it - see below:

I have several audio accessories for my wireless devices, and a few are what I would consider "upscale" including a Bower & Wilkins Zeppelin, and both a SoundLink and SoundDock by Bose. All offer superior sound quality. While these products are not the same type as the Thuderstorm, being a hard dock and two blue tooth devices, and only one being mobile, I mention them because the Thunderstorm is in this class when it comes to audio reproduction.

In its simplest state, the Thunderstorm is essentially an iPad case made of black plastic. It has a matte finish, which feels very smooth. There is a speaker housing which extends beyond the iPad abou 1 1/2". What is contained in that small speaker housing is magical. The sound processor is made by Audifi and the sound is really beautiful. The volume is incredible, with no noticeable distortion. The bass pounds, the midrange is clear, and the highs are piercing. I do not think I have heard such superior acoustics from a small "non-Bose" product ever before.

The Thunderstorm doubles as an iPad case and fits both the iPad 2 and iPad3.
