Fun product that just makes you smile :)
on June 18, 2011
Well, it just came as we were heading out to the beach for the week and I wanted to get it before we left. Nice packaging and everything is simple to use. I wish the cable was a little heavier, but for under $20-- no complaints. It is nice that you can charge it and use it at the same time which is something others cannot do. As far as sound, I chose to just get one to use with an iPod or my Blackberry with Pandora. I plugged it in to charge it and turned it on, no surprises which is a good sign. As far as the sound quality it is very good for what it is. Did I expect anything great, no but it is damn good and this is with me being particular with how I like things to sound. With the top open and the bellows extended, the sound is full and I can actually feel the bass on the table. Vocals are also good and it is also can play loud without distortion and is *exactly* what I was looking for. Do I need stereo? No, it is the beach and really doesn't matter as it is about having fun and being able to carry this along will simply rock.
As long as it holds up and works reliably I will be thrilled.
UPDATE: Well it has survived a week at the beach as well as a couple nights at the pool. Everyone that sees it can't believe that such a small speaker can sound, well, so "big". Battery life is simply excellent and when hooked to my iPod Nano--- it is the ultimate micro package. It is cool when someone smiles when they see it as it has that cool/ funky/ gotta have gadget that blows away having to drag around anything larger. Don't get me wrong, bigger products will sound bigger and better, but how many can fit in a pocket???
UPDATE: It is going to be almost two years with this little guy and it still works perfectly. I have been selling some things on EBay recently and I have been using it with iHeart Radio on my Android smartphone--- really does a nice job. It is great as the battery still lasts long and it plays clear and loud enough that as I move around the basement I can leave it in one spot. I am still very happy with my purchase and I hope it continues to work as well as it has. What has also been nice is the storage pouch it came with--- keeps it clean and safe from debris or errant pokes to the speaker through the grill if I toss it in my bag.
