This speaker is almost perfect - EXCEPT...when you are in an office cubicle
, January 9, 2014
This review is from: SHARKK® BoomBox Bluetooth Speaker, 18 Hour Playtime, 10 Watt Portable Speaker System, 4400 mAh Li-ion Battery, Ultra Bass Subwoofer Sound Effect / Built In Mic For Calls / NFC Function / Bluetooth 4.0 / For All iPhone / iPhone 6 / iPhone 6 Plus / All iPad / iPad Air 2 / All Phones / Samsung Galaxy Phones and Tablets / Laptops (Electronics)
This speaker is almost perfect except for one major flaw. It makes a lot of noise.
It absolutely breaks my heart that I will have to return it because of something other than sound/music quality
What I mean is
When you start it up - It makes a Loud boom to signal its on (And I do mean loud)
When you fast forward the tracks by using the buttons on the top of the speaker - It says in a voice "forward track"
Every time you disconnect bluetooth and reconnect - it will say disconnect and pairing
When someone calls you - It vocally announces the number instead of just making a ringing sound
SOO In an office setting it just makes too much extra "noise" that will likely bother your co workers as it did mine.
To Be Fair: Its gets an A+ on
Sound - great bass for size
Design - Really Sleek
Buttons on Top
Lights on Side instead on front grill (Just a little pet peeve of mine with a lot of other bluetooth speakers)
This why its so hard to return it because for the money I think its the best sounding bluetooth speaker this size
**What I would suggest to Sharkk is have a way to toggle back and forth between the voice prompts and not voice prompts. I could well well see some people liking it and some people don't. Also that Loud boom when you turn it on is unnecessary.
