Beware of this speaker!! Do not purchase!! I am a loyal Amazon Customer and there is one very major issue with this speaker which did come up several times in the reviews I have seen. So let me add another comment about the small USB plug in charger DISLODGING!!! Sad to say I am now on my second speaker in three months and this is what happened to both. Each time with both speakers I after plugging in the charger say around a half dozen times it starts to loosen. On the first, once it started to "push in", I treated it like gold and tried my best to be careful and suddenly it just fell into the speaker housing. Yikes!! Gone. Amazon replaced it since I only had it for about 4-5 weeks. Well today after about six charges and 5 weeks later the USB plug in has broken loose and is about to break off and fall into the speaker. AGAIN! Why do I not see more comments about this on the net. Do they only rate it on sound for a few days. The engineers really need to take a second look at this. I saw someone posted something about a third generation USB plug in charger, anyone know about this or can help that would be great. Too bad it is a kick-butt speaker as long as you do not try to charge it. Update, now the third speaker I bought has also had the same problem with charging and the faulty port, no kidding. Yes I am a sucker and this is the third one to break, three strikes your out Altec. DO NOT BUY THIS, I am now seeing others edit their postings after about two months of use and they are having the same issues.

USB charging port became dislodged after two weeks of use. After 30 minutes on hold, I was told by "customer service" that the broken charging port was an "external" vice "internal" problem and therefore not covered under the warranty.

I will not buy another Altec Lansing product.

Bought 2 and both the charging ports broke! They claim the warranty doesn't cover it....this is horrible! I love these speakers, but this needs fixed. I can no longer charge the speakers and they are junk!

Not even 2 months and the jack for charging fell in the speaker like for so many others. Sending it to Altec for repair.

This thing is amazing, same day shipping came within 4 hours, and it worked right out of the box. Holds a solid charge, and charges your phone/mp3 player whatever.
Bought this for work because it rains 90% of the year in my state. No performance issues in the snow yet. I'm happy as a clam with it.

EDIT: micro-usb charging port broke after 6 days of home use. This is my first purchase from Altec Lansing so hopefully their warranty service is reasonable.

EDIT 2: Told warranty service hotline the usb port broke off and fell inside the speaker after light home use and they told me that kind of 'manhandling' would not be covered. I liked the speaker but that's ridiculous.

This speaker has an awesome sound, however I had to send both back due to charging issues. After being charged 3 or 4 times it would no longer take a charge. I thought maybe the first speaker was just a lemon but the second speaker had the exact same issue. Speaker was not what I expected. :(

To Altec - I am stumped on what rating to provide. I really want to like this speaker. I wouldn't call myself an audiophile but because i lack the technical mumbo jumbo but I can say I love good quality sound. I have very nice home theater and I have all aftermarket equipment in my vehicle... Point Being... I am Picky with my sound. Wife thinks i am ridiculous but that's another story. I bought this last week to take on our family vacation to the beach. (I am hoping for a response from Altec that instructs me to download a Firmware update to remedy some of these issues just as Fugoo has done) Here are my thoughts: ** The Good - The RUGGEDNESS is great! Drop/Water/Sand/Mud Proof is really nice. The sound quality is really good when in a quiet room. The speaker isn't omni-directional but i knew that before i bought it. I am currently running the EQ a little flat with a slight curve up towards the highs. Once again... Sound quality is great (relative to size) when there is not a lot of background noise. However, i bought the speaker to be used outdoors in social settings, not a quite romantic dinner. This brings me to the Bad - Unless the speaker was within 6-7 feet in front of me at the beach, the volume was so low i could barely understand the lyrics. I would love (need) more volume. I am aware of the size of the speaker and am taking that into consideration. My Jawbone BIG Jambox isn't much bigger than my Life Jacket but the volume is so much louder. Of course the jambox isn't rugged at all! I REALLY dislike the woman's voice screaming at me at full volume telling me the Unit is 'Powering On/Powering Off/Connected' etc. Why does she have to be so loud? Connectivity is poor. i would loose connection if (iphone5) was not in direct line of sight and within 8 or 9 feet.Read more ›

I bought this product at bestbuy today, I thought it was great. Sound was good ,clear ,and loud; when I got home I used it in the pool and it worked for about 3 minutes and then shut off. Then it turned on and had a crackling noise, I charged it hoping that would help. 3 hours later it turned on by itself and paired so my iPhone again, the music was muffled and quiet. I tried to turn it off and it wouldn't turn off, when i eventually got It to turn off........it turned back on and then turned back off by itself.. This repeated about 3 times. I called customer service and they told me "drain the battery completely and then charge it and it turn it back on" I asked them how this would help and after hearing the same sentence to drain the battery 4 different times they finally said that because it went into the water my warranty is no longer valid and that the speaker is not waterproof. The box clearly states that the speaker can be submerged in water and it says "waterproof, snowproof, and sandproof" on the box and on the papers that come in the box. The only reason I'm giving this product 1 star is because I have to. This speaker is terrible and the customer service is terrible. Do not buy.
