First, the positives... the sound is great and the build quality is also very solid. Using one paired to my iPhone 6s was also fine.
The not so good..., using three of them in party mode was another story. I bought the speakers with the vision of using them in my 1/2 acre backyard around the pool, spread out across 30-60 feet. Sadly, the connection struggled and would drop or get choppy after just 20-30 feet (line of sight with my iPhone within 10-20 feet of the main Bluetooth paired unit.) While these distances did sometimes work intermittently, I found myself or our guests breaking or hurting the connection significantly when simply walking inbetween them. These issues drove me to regularly relocate the speakers in an attempt to get them to reconnect and stay connected. To no avail. Yesterday I think I had to reconnect them at least 6 separate times, including times when they were placed around our fire pit/chairs. Our guests all liked the speaker sounds, but many commented on the connection reliability and all the time I was spending with them.
Today, with another day of backyard use anticipated, I’m going to try again. Understanding signal intereference possibilities (we don’t have a cordless phone and the closest neighbors are more than 50 yards away from the speakers), I’m going to give them a chance at even shorter distances of maybe 10-20 feet. Not ideal by any means, but I can’t bear another day of constant resyncing and location shifting.
JLab, you have a very good concept here and I believe their is a need for such a product, and you’ve produced great sound out of such a small form factor, but I’d advise you to restate or more deeply qualitlfy the usable distances. Perhaps even add or recommend an amplifier solution for distances over 10-20 feet. I unfortunately tossed the 3 boxes a day after I bought them. Had I not, they’d already be boxed up for a return.
I thought about keeping the Block Party but decided I would just not enjoy listening to something without more bass. I do tend to turn up the bass in my systems, so maybe it's just the way my ears like to hear things. These could work well for some applications, such as a multiple speaker setup, but I was frustrated by the lack of bottom end response, big magnets or no, and ended up returning it.
Speaker has stopped holding a charge and will not playing music for more than 30 mins. Do not buy unless they have fixed this problem as I see multiple people have the issue.
I dj, so I know a little about speakers. For the size, this thing rocks out. It has pretty full sound and decent bass. It feels solid and it easy to carry around. I have been playing super bass heavy music on it (Drum & Bass), and it does pretty well considering how small it is. There is a good trick you can do with this speaker though - when using it in the kitchen, place it in a corner counter area close to the wall and under the bottom of the kitchen cabinets. Due to the reverberation this placement makes the speaker sound about 2x as loud that if just playing into an open space. I can literally hear the speaker in every room when I place it in that arrangement. Overall I am satisfied with my purchase. The only complaint is sometimes the Bluetooth disconnects for no reason even when the phone is very close.
