Updated 5/17 Ok Speaker - Not Super Loud
on April 7, 2014
I originally had an HDMX Rave that I used when I was taking a shower, but I was worried that it wouldn't last long in the steam. I have to say the Rave was super loud, and I was hoping for the same with this speaker.
Unfortunately, it's about half as loud, and I was worried I wouldn't be able to hear it over the sound of the water. Not to worry though. The proximity of the speaker makes up for any shortage of loudness.
You're not going to be blowing the shower curtain off, but it gets the job done. Also, just a tip. When you're done with the speaker, you have to hold down the power button. You'll hear a beep, but keep holding it down. You should hear a power off style chime that let's you know it's off.
Update 5/17: not sure what happened but the quality of this thing really dropped off. The battery now stays charged for about 2 days, even if it's powered off and not used. The sound has gotten progressively lower and lower, and now I have to put it in the bottom of a bowl so I can hear it. I am just about to swap back to using the speaker in my iPad, or buy something else. :(
