There are too many options. This is as good as they get.

It took me a while to buy myself a bluetooth speaker. There are too many options and everything I'd heard was lacking in some way. I bought a UE Megaboom for someone and I liked it a lot but I needed something smaller. I read a good review about this one on SoundOnSound and it was up for 30$ so it seemed like a no-brainer.
I have to say I'm pleasantly surprised. The music sounds full at all levels, the bass isn't pushed too much and doesn't disappear either. The sound doesn't distort at louder levels, which is a common problem with speakers like this. It's simple to use, either as a bluetooth speaker or with a minijack/AUX cable. I've charged it once since I got it and have been playing music through it most of two mornings and the battery's still going.
I wouldn't say it's got 360 degree sound as the highs are lower in volume when you're on the other side of it but that doesn't bother me that much. It's nice to know it's splash proof, although dust proofing would have been nice too.
I bought the case along with it, and that's a bit cumbersome. The box it comes with is smaller and a tight fit and would have kept it stored well.
If you're on the fence, I'd say just buy it. You won't find much better speakers this size and definitely not for this price.
