Great price point for a good quality product
on July 5, 2013
UPDATE 09/01/2013 I am dropping the review to 1 star from a previous 5 stars as the sound quality has degraded dramatically, as well as ( probably why ) 1 of the speakers no longer works. I have contacted the buyer and will se what the response is. But for a product that is only 2 months old and isnt used very hard, it doesnt bode well.
On taking the unti out of the box, I was a little shocked buy its quality of construction. I was definately expecting a little more lightweight materials and cheaper quality. The outside has a nice rubberized coating, that makes it pleasant to hold.
as for volume, It has that in spades for being a tiny 6 watt speaker, with a camera battery for power. the volume is suprisingly loud, enough to clearly hear my music choice easily over the nearby busy road. Depending on the surface, it seems to have more or less distortion, on my table, it sounded great, even at high volumes. and It gets loud enough to bother the neighbors at night for sure.
Using an iphone 5, I played with the EQ...
go to setings, scroll down to music, go to EQ and try different settings, personally i found "Lounge" to be the best balance.
It doesnt have dedicated woofers or tweeters, so I wouldnt expect "Bose" fidelity, but for sub $40 its a great deal!
People on here review it poorly because of the "hard to use" buttons. Once its powered on and lynced up, I dont really touch it! I keep the volume at max volume and adjust it with my iphone. easy enough. I havent tested it with Pandora yet, so I cant say if its going to work as of yet, but I will play with it more and report back.
Pros: Size Cost volume output. You cant beat it at this price, as an added bonus, it doubles a bluetooth dongle so now i can remotely control my music! Awesome! I can pick it up and carry it from the bathroom, to the kitchen and the patio. Sure I can wear headphones, but then my girlfriend cant hear it, and i cant hear extraneous noises as easily. plus, its great for the whole house!
Cons: none as of yet, of course I would like more and deeper bass and better highs, but for what it is and its price I couldnt be happier!
I will be looking inot more of their products if the rest are this good!
