In terms of sound, this really does a great job at amplifying music. I use it with my laptop sometimes and it is easily twice as loud as the highest volume on the laptop pc ( I own a dell xps).
The great thing about this is that it can connect by bluetooth or by audio cable and he sound is amazing and LOUD!
The not so great things about this is that the little button on the front of the ball is kind of small. You really have to press on hard to turn it on. It gets annoying sometimes.
I would prefer if there were a play/pause/rewind /forward button on the back of the item, but I don't really use it with my ipod and when I do, I just use the ipod itself to do those things, so it isn't the end of the world. Still, something to think about.
Is it worth the price they are charging for it? Maybe. The sound is really loud and powerful and the item comes beautifully packaged. $10 bucks cheaper and I would say this is the best bluetooth speaker out there period.
I got it early at a really good price. The price kept going up. It started at $15, and the last I saw it, it was $40. It is currently unavailable. I don't think I would pay $40, but at $20 it was a really good deal. I left off 1 star because of the price increase.
Other than that, it has good sound and produces it loud enough to be impressed by its size.
I bought the speaker to use with my computer for audio for Netflix and the like, and despite an afternoon of playing with settings, trying an accessory USB bluetooth transmitter, etc, could never get it to work. When using the audio cable, the sound was very good on both.
As a note, there is essentially no support. The website has an e-mail address that is never answered. Consider therefore that your are on your own when you buy this. Also, the charging cable is a USB to B type coaxial barrel connector, and is only about 10 inches long. The connector is not exactly proprietary, but this combination of connectors is NOT easily available. If you decide you want a longer charging cable (and you will), you will have to order online or (as I did), have a local shop make one up. Works fine, was a great opportunity to meet some very skilled local guys, but still a bit of a hassle.
In sum: when it works, it works really well. If, for some reason, it doesn't like your source, it doesn't work really at all.
I really only wanted something simple, sounds reasonably well, portable, wireless, and cheap. Was I asking for too much?
I found this product for about $20. I got some reasonably good reviews. To be honest, I was skeptical. But with the low price and good reviews, I decided I would purchase it. I'm glad it did.
First of all, the product manual is not well-written. Like many low-cost products, the manual does not give you the simple and important detail you really want to know - everything is in small print and is one long paragraph. It would have been better if it had simply said:
POWER BUTTON HERE -> X
RED - CHARGING
BLUE - POWERED ON / BLUETOOTH ON
Manual criticism aside, the product is good quality and for its size and cost, performs great. Volume is controlled by your device like an iPad. If you have it turned up, it will be LOUD! At high volumes, it has great bass. There is some distortion at high volume - but like I said, for its size and cost, it performs great. This is good for everyday listening in the bedroom or picnic - most people don't care it is not even in stereo (it's a single speaker, remember?).
Audiophiles and other very picky people may find a problem with the sound quality of the product. For them, an overpriced Bose system may be better pick (those didn't even have bluetooth).
If you want great overall sound at a low price, get this. I highly recommend it.

Love it, love it, love it. Surprising sound from a small speaker. I am not a 'blaster', I prefer to keep my hearing, so I cannot attest to full volume. Read morePublished 16 months ago by Linwe
This was a great speaker. Lasted a very long time until the button on the front finally wore out.... Best deal for the pricePublished 18 months ago by Mark R. Attala
For the price, I can't really complain. You're not gonna get incredible bass but it sounds good enough for listening during a trip to the beach or camping without annoying anyone... Read morePublished 18 months ago by Vin Vega
