One of three cables was bad.
Were you to receive a bad cable the results would be what you see in the 1 or 2 star reviews; eg the cable doesn't work, or sometimes works, or makes poor connections, causing weak to sporadic sound. If you have the spare parts lying around all you need is USB male to miniUSB male (for charging), 3.5mm male to 3.5mm male (for connecting it to your device). Both of which are less than a dollar if you look in the right places.
The sound quality, volume and frequency response is quite impressive for such tiny speakers.
These speakers can also be daisy chained together using the cable provided (if it works right). There is no drop or gain in volume across all the speakers.
I will be probably be ordering 9 more of these for future gifts. Unfortunately I will have to open every single one to make sure it works as I do not trust the manufacturer's quality control. However, if the next batch have better statistics, I will update this review.
If you found this review helpful please make note of it.
Using Maciré (Kar Kar), I compared the sound quality to my:
1. Kindle Fire
2. 2GB CHUMBY8 Internet Radio
3. Dell Latitude E6410 14.1" Notebook
The boomCAN does produce "more sound" than the built-in speakers of any of these three. The volume is considerably more than the Kindle Fire's maximum volume. The Chumby8 and Dell E6410 attempt to provide a fuller sound by limiting the maximum volume to match the full range. So, the Chumby8 and Dell E6410 sound better, just not louder. The Chumby8 provides the best all-around sound. Simply put, the boomCAN will augment a Kindle Fire or laptop nicely, especially for watching videos. But the sound quality is lacking enough that you won't really want to get up and dance to it.
The form-factor and packaging is the strongest area of the boomCAN. It is very small. It comes with a simple cable with standard 3.5mm on one end and a USB mini B connector at the other. The USB mini B plugs into the boomCAN and the 3.5mm connector plugs into your headphone jack. there is also as standard USB 2.0 connector that you can plug in to charge the boomCAN's battery. You can listen on the boomCAN while it is charging.
A small velvet pouch is included that everything fits in. The cable even has a velcro wrap attached. Very thoughtful additions for low price audio gear.
I've been waivering between two and three stars - mostly because of the sound quality. But to be fair, I gave the boomCAN four stars because it delivers well within it's category. You just cannot deliver full sound from a single, small speaker. It is a matter of physics.
I would have given five stars except that the speaker picks up static when the USB is plugged in for charging. This was consistent on the Chumby8 and Dell E6410. When it wasn't plugged into a USB port for charging, there was no static.
Initially, I was surprised by the volume but quickly realized that it is impractical for streaming music from services such as Spotify and Pandora. I had to turn up the volume on my phone due to road noise pollution in my car, but if I turned up the volume slightly higher than halfway, the speaker would "pop" when the music became a little too complex.
In the end, my phone's volume is on par or higher than the volume of this product.
The small size and light weight of the item makes it difficult to keep upright and there is no volume dial--it has two volumes controlled by a single switch, normal and loud.
Spend the extra $10 on something with a little more quality that can presumably handle an iPhone streaming music at high volume. This guy would be ideal for light background music while you're cooking dinner or cleaning a room, but not for the folks seeking to crank up the volume.
