First of all, I'm relatively sure this product is off the line by now. For the most part, it seems like many folks are having problems finding customer support, so I just wanted to share some of the simple fixes that worked for me.

Most problems should be solvable with the info in the woot.com forum archive here: […]

my experience follows

Out of the packaging, I ended up charging the device for some 2-3 hours as depicted in the instructions, but I was not able to get the transmitter and speaker to connect even though both lights were flashing. The instructions are somewhat undetailed, but the device should connect if you try the multiple device connection method in the manual. Hold the multiuse button on the speaker for 10 seconds till flashing quickly, then press the button/light on the transmitter for 5 seconds till it is also flashing quickly. I was quite relieved when I realized the instructions were at fault, not the hardware itself.

tl;dr press all buttons for a long time to make this device work

Just got this thing. Started charging the speaker and plugged the transmitter into my iPhone 4. The transmitter connected right away and the speaker started playing, then wouldn't connect again after I unplugged/replugged it in. Figured out why and made it work...

- This was because I had to 'reset' the little transmitter- but there are no visible buttons! Finally I realized by digging thru the manual that the tiny indicator light on it is also a (hard to press) button. Fiddled with pressing that and it eventually reconnected.

- The speaker looks cool; compact and slick. But the buttons are also hard to press, and the main/power button is basically disguised as a 'cy-fi' logo. I.e. the logo is the mode indicator light AND button, but when you're pressing it you can't see what color the light is.

- The USB charging slot is covered by a tiny recessed rubber flap that is a pain in the ass to remove. Bah!

- In the product pics it looks like this comes with a few sizes of bike mounting rings; not so. Only came with one (the bigger one). But does have various rubber spacer strips to try. And no charging base- just a USB cord (not that I care about that).

- Speaker volume is decent. Kind of exactly what you'd expect for a little speaker like this. Should be fine for my commute through lower Manhattan and into Brooklyn.

- Pause/Play, Skip, and Volume controls work fine.

Purchased the unit July 2009 and have never looked back. Battery life is 6+ hours on a full charge, which has covered several Centuries this year. It easily syncs to and Bluetooth, but I do experience interference/signal drops due to my wireless Garmin cadence transmitter, so I have to carry my player in the right pocket of the bike jersey to avoid the drops. I'd recommend this product

The good: Decent sound quality. Once it is up and running, it works well and is simple to operate. Better than other products of this nature that I have come across. Other users have claimed that the front of the device is prone to falling off when shaken or when you ride over a bump. I have not had this problem, but I put some electrical tape over the front to hold it in place to prevent this (assuming that they were right about this problem).
The bad: The mounting setup is questionable at best. They try to make it so you can mount this on a skinny handlebar stem or a big, fat crosstube. They would have done better to include a couple different mounting brackets instead just including different pieces of rubber to fill the gap. It never feels completely stable, but has not fallen.
The ugly: Instructions for setup are more complex than need be and may give you the impression that it's not working at first. Here is what you need to actually do:

First just try the plug and play method. If they don't automatically start talking to one another, the blue LED on the transmitter (the one you plug in your ipod) is also a reset button. Press it and hold it until you see it react, then sync the speaker to it like you were just adding on another speaker.

Seller shipped fast. Hooked it up to my road bike this weekend. Easy to install. Pairing was tricky, but I recalled a reviewer here mention the little blue light is actually a pairing button (which was not mentioned in the instruction book it came with) so I was able to pair it. On my 14th mile the speaker came apart. The top half came off and dangled by the wire. I had to hold it down with my wrist until I could stop. A little disappointed that it could not handle some bumpy roads. Some duct tape will have to hold it together. I wasn't expecting for amazing quality materials so I'm not too disappointed since it only cost me $35. It was worth a shot. It did make my 32 miles more entertaining out there on the country roads.

edit..WARNING!!! I sent back to Seller and they have not refunded me or replaced the speaker. I keep getting an auto generated email response each time I email them. I CAN'T SEEM TO GET AN ANSWER FROM DIRECT DISTRIBUTORS SINCE MARCH 9, 2012. I'VE GOTTEN THIS GENERIC RESPONSE TWICE. SERIOUSLY, IT TAKES YOU OVER 3 MONTHS TO PROCESS MY CREDIT OR EXCHANGE??

Hi,
Returns are processed on a first come first serve basis. Once our RMA department gets to your package you will be notified and refunded or an exchange will be sent out to you.

Thank you for your patience.
