One other thing to note, Customer Service for Soundcast is horrible about responding to emails, they don't, so if you have a question ... good luck getting a response from anyone.
Overall nice speaker and I'd buy this as a replacement if my Bose died and I didn't want to spend the money on another one.
Let me qualify my enthusiasm. This Soundcast speaker presents every nuance of the music. The bass (delivered through the back of speaker) is robust, deep, and clear, without being muddy or distorted. You can hear every single bass note keenly. In fact, be careful where you place the Soundcast, as it will vibrate on a smooth surface and carom off a table if you’re not careful. At full volume, it vibrates like crazy if you pick it up, yet there’s zero distortion.
Of course, the bass in itself does not make this speaker sound complete. There is quality midrange in this speaker, something lacking in most Bluetooth speakers, and the mids add to the balanced soundstage. I hear the nuances that are usually reserved for non-Bluetooth speakers. Moreover, the highs are ably clear. Maybe not quite as crisp as I’d like, but distinct nonetheless. This speaker fairly reminds me of the BOSE signature sound, but with a much better midrange than the BOSE (which I’ve always been critical of). Given BOSE popularity, I am in the minority with my criticisms. Bottom line: if you like the BOSE sound, you should love this speaker even more.
One significant downside—this speaker will not pair with either my iPod Touch (latest version, and updated), or my iPad 4, iPad Air II, or iPad mini (latest version), and I made several attempts. This is something that has never happened with the dozens of Bluetooth speakers I’ve reviewed. I have no idea why. It paired easily with my iPhone 7plus. I’m afraid I have to knock off a star for that. The whole purpose of the device is BLUETOOTH, and it fails to pair with the most easy-pair devices other than my iPhone. It is no criticism of the sound, which is resonant and superb, but Soundstage needs to correct this major flaw.
You can plug in non-Bluetooth enabled devices and play music with the included Aux cord, and in this way, I could plug in all my iPads and my iPod touch, and the speaker delivered excellent sound. Actually, using the cord makes the sound even better, since nothing is lost from the source material, something Bluetooth technology has not yet perfected.
Other selling points that make this speaker stand out is that it boasts of being waterproof. With an IP67 rating, it will withstand a light rain shower, but it cannot be submerged in water. You can pair two of these speakers to give a True Wireless Stereo sound. You can also stream Hi Def audio via Bluetooth with aptx, and ACC. This speaker will play for up to 15 hours on a full charge.
I do a lot of traveling, both domestic and internationally. This speaker would replace my previous favorite speaker, except that most of my personal music is on my iPod. So I’d have to use the Aux cord. It’s small, rugged, and solid, yet weighs only a pound. It fits nicely into a purse, backpack, and won’t take up a lot of needed space in luggage. Bringing great quality sound anywhere you want has just gotten easier. Once Soundstage has fixed this pairing problem to make it more accessible to all devices, I will get one to take overseas on long trips.
In the box: The VG1 speaker, recharging cord, an Aux cord, the User’s Manual, and a small bag to carry the cords.
First off, the Bluetooth set-up was simple and quick. And once that was taken care of, getting music from my phone to the speaker was a breeze. I am really impressed with the audio quality of this speaker. It rivals the Bose Soundlink in terms of audio quality. The treble and midrange is really strong, and the bass is better than it is on many other speakers I have tried.
The speaker does not get blaring loud -- although I find it plays loud enough for my tastes the vast majority of the time.
One feature I love is that it is Siri-capable, so when playing through my iPhone or iPad I can use voice controls through this speaker. This is a really excellent feature that my other Bluetooth speakers do not have. Conceptually I also like the idea of pairing two of these units to create stereo sound -- that is something I plan to do, to improve the overall listening experience.
One of the best features of this is it is made for outdoor usage. The waterproofing makes it safe to use near a pool, hot tub or under cloud-covered skies. My other speakers are not capable in this area.
All in all I recommend this unit. It is solid, well-built, easy to set up and sounds great. A definite winner!
