Where do I start!? This thing even has a bass port giving some solid bass that hits. The mids and highs are ok, but for a portable music player priced around $35, you won't find better. The battery lasts as advertised, never have I ran out of juice during any giving session of using it. The buttons are simple and easy to understand. And it can get loud, enough to fill a backyard barbeque no problem.
Two problems however, one of which is kind of a plus at the same time. When the volume knob is being turned up and the music file or incoming audio is too loud, the unit will shut itself down. The music distorts when too loud anyway, and it seems like a safety measure to avoid blowing the speakers. So it can't be taken as a true con. The second problem is the battery latch that holds the battery in. It came opened the second day I had it, and the battery was lost. The battery doesn't click in, it's just held in place by the latch. Luckily, there are replacements. I bought mine on Amazon, the exact one was the Nokia BL-5C Extended Li-Ion Battery.
If you're looking for a way to listen to your music on the go, and would like some volume when doing so, this is what you want.
1. It had two speakers, both facing frontward.
2. The video review STATED and SHOWED a 110/220V charger "it came with". Also, the 'Product Description' at the bottom of the listing page states it is included.
Regarding 1., there were other products with this feature for less and more money, none I found stated they had the charger.
Regarding 2., I am taking this overseas on a trip and need the 220v and am NOT taking a laptop to be able to charger it with only a usb cord.
NOTE: This product does NOT have it's own wall plug type phone charger 'brick', just the usb cord (as well as a mp3 player cord). I did indeed notify Amazon,the seller finally the manufacturer. YOU CAN charge it with a wall plug if you have one, (or buy) a 12v charger with a usb slot to plug the included charging wire into it.
A red LED comes on while it is charging, the manual says '2.5 hrs' for full charge, true - then light goes off. I did buy (from Amazon) a replacement/back up battery: "Nokia BL-5C Lithium Ion 1020 mAh 3.7 V for Nokia N70" in case the speaker lasts longer than the battery or if the battery style is discontinued.
The sound is subjective. I think it is moderately loud, 4 star sound (no where near the big home stereo systems us old guys used to have).No bass/treble control as expected.
My other worry was (my intended use) is it easy to plug a usb flash drive in it and will it play MP3 files and it did. That is it, I do not use blue tooth, though it apparently has this feature.I would say it is a 5 star product durability, value and performance wise, however, I was willing to buy the $26 alternative if I knew this had no charger. I kept it because in my drawer of chargers, I did have one which works at 110v here in US and another which is rated at 220v for my trip.
Overall, I think most of us can be pleased with this music player. UPDATE: Have loaded a bazillion (classical music) songs onto a USB and let it rip for 5 hours straight and counting. It sounds -almost- GREAT, lows, highs and mids but keep in mind these things have 2" speakers. If you press and hold the "<<" (double arrow back) button, a red led lights up instead of blue signalling you have entered 'random play'. What it - and it seems most other units don't- doesn't have is a display or or some type of presets other than fast forward/back or random. In addition to a spare Nokia phone battery, I am also getting a separate battery charger. Both Amazon and ebay sell them for the phones that use this BL-5C battery. Still not sorry I got GoGroove, it also weighs 2 pounds as stated and it is durable.
UPDATE: My 'mix tape' usb was stuck playing the same songs until I found some of the songs were .wpa or .cda files from used CD's I had. You MUST download a converter to turn these songs into MP3 files. it took me a lot of trial and error, but MediaHuman worked.
NEW NOTE: Just discovered it emits a not unpleasant tone when the battery is LOW, which stops as soon as it is plugged into charger. I have enjoyed using this item daily and have found the FACTORY customer service to be EXCELLENT. This unit is warrantied 3 years, they provide contact info in the product manual and they quickly respond! I must up my conservative rating from 4 to FIVE STARS based on durability, appearance, ease of use, features, sound quality and customer support.
PS I glued rubber feet on the end opposite the volume knob to stand it up with a smaller foot print. The sound port is on that side so you need something to raise it up-drawer felts or something else. see photos.
I own the smaller version at work, so that I can listen to my favorite songs in my cubicle at a low volume on days that I really need a pick me up.
