Nice looking but not great sound
on January 28, 2014
This is a very simple and easy looking speaker and it is very easy to carry around. It has a couple of small buttons on the edge but nothing else interferes with its look. It can be used with Bluetooth and it pairs very easily with different devices. So far, I have gotten it to pair with my Samsung Note cell, my iPod Touch (4th G), and my Macbook.
This works very well as a speaker for audible books. You can plug it into the source or use it through Bluetooth connections. The voices of the books are perfectly clear and easy to understand.
That being said, I find it grating to listen to music with. It reminds me of those old alarm clock speakers that absolutely ruined the sound of any music it was playing. It does not resonate sound the way many of the small speakers do, including Jabra SOLEMATE Wireless Bluetooth Portable Speaker. This Soundmate speaker IS better than the speaker on my iPod.
There is music in the world that makes you want to stand up and dance on tables. But not when it is played through this speaker.
The other funny thing is watching it rumble its way across a table when the music is turned up.
If I had purchased it, it would have already been sent back by now. Not being able to play music is a deal breaker.
