Product Description

Product Packaging: Standard Packaging

Need to amp the volume on your device? The iFrogz Boost NearField Audio speaker is the simplest solution ever. Just put nearly any smartphone or digital media device on top of the Boost with the external speakers playing and the Boost magically amplifies the sound. It just works. No wires. No Bluetooth. No Synching. No problem. An auxiliary line-in jack is provided for devices without external speakers. Many have asked if the Boost has a hidden microphone to pull this off. Nope. The Boost uses patent pending NearFA technology that actually syncs the audio signal from inside your device before pumping it out the two high-quality 2W x 2 RMS speakers. Your tunes are then boosted with room filling sound.

Product is new. Works really great with iPhone, iPod Touch 4G, cell phone, etc. Purchased product and quickly learned that the Boost DOES NOT WORK WITH iPod Touch 3G or earlier. I was on phone over two days with iFrogz support and they confirmed WILL NOT WORK WITH 3G iPod Touch. Hope this helps someone as I wish I had this information before I purchased.

On page one the instruction book says 'Magically amplifies the sound from iPhoneTM, etc'

Yeah, it kinda does.

I popped3 AA batteries into it and turned it on. There are no wires. Picked a song on my iPhone (We Will Rock You, if you must know) and put the phone on top of the BOOST. Big time difference! Pretty good sound and much louder, better than the tiny, tinny speaker built in to the iPhone. Next up was the final movement of Saint-Seans Organ Symphony. Thunderous Bass? No. Good sound? Yes. Last iPhone test: Foggy Mountain Breakdown. (What?) Sounded great (and don't give me comments that say 'if it makes banjo music sound great it must be magic. Just don't).

Next up, my Kindle Fire. Phil Collins. Worked great.

Cordless phone? Not so much. But I can't figure out why I would want to do that anyway.

So, to sum up: for pop/rock/country music it works great. Very good for classical music, especially if you remember you are using a $30 device. Portable and fun. Seems to work with any device that plays music and has a built-in speaker. My 18 and 11 year-olds thought it very cool.

I am going to have fun with this.

I use this with my cell phone & pandora and it works great! It can get a little "rattly" when the volume on my phone is turned up all the way, but works very well and I don't need it to be THAT loud. It seems to turn itself off when the phone is removed from it, which is really great just in case I forget to turn it off--saves on the battery life. I haven't had to replace the batteries yet but it's probably only been used 3 hours so far. Takes 3 AA's, which is kind of a pain to keep replacing if you are using it alot, but it is adaptable to AC Power if you wanted to go that route.

At first hearing, this appeared to be a very good little gadget for $20. When it arrived by mail from China, I was surprised to see that it was packed in a box marked BESS, not IFrogz. (I suspect that may was an effort to mimic the word BOSE.) I tried it for one day with vocal music -- operatic arias -- and it appeared to perform well. However, I remembered seeing comments from a couple of raters which complained that they were sent cheap knockoffs, NOT iFrogz. Well, that apparently is what happened to me. The next day, I tried the "Bess" gadget again and this time I noticed considerable distortion, particularly with instrumental pieces. On the third day, I tried it again with vocal music and even there, the distortion had become very apparent, except at low volume, which defeats the purpose of the supposed amplifier. I should have been suspicious (Caveat Emptor) when I saw that there was a three week delivery time. From now on, if an item isn't available from Amazon within a few days, I ain't buying it. Amazon should have been aware from previous ratings that their supplier in China wasn't supplying the iFrogz near field portable speaker they advertised, but was letting the supplier substitute cheap knock-offs. I therefore have completely changed my review and only hope no one has innocently purchased from Amazon.com a supposed iFrogz near field portable speaker on my say so.

I was really excited about this product and when we received it, imagine my surprise when I realized this wasn't the right product. It looks the same and the box kinda looks right but no where does it say it's from iFrogz, and the box says it's BOOSE. not a Boost... a Boose. Yes, this damn thing is a Boost knock off from asia.

If I could give them zero stars I would, this is not the product I wanted and will be talking with amazon about this fraud.

I bought this for my son who has and ipod touch. I love that it is easy to use and portable. It has awesome sound for such a small item. I am very pleased with my purchase.

got this as a present and I'm ambivalent about it.

the sound is loud enough to fill a 20sqft room but the bass is nonexistent as you might expect with a speaker of this size. worse though is the noise/fuzz added through the transmission from the player to the speaker. I get better fm reception on my car radio.

a few things this speaker has going for it is the styling and shape - it would work well if you were packing this speaker for a trip or wanted to set it on a table in a hotel room.

for walking around with, sharing youtube videos with multiple people, which is what I really use a portable speaker for, my little round "Accessorize" speaker ( http://www.amazon.com/Accessorise-Portable-Speaker-System-Tablet/dp/B007OYAVLI/ ) works better. better bass, no noise, about same volume

The sound is great and it worked with our smart phones, ipod, and android players. My co-worker liked it so much that he ordered one too!
