The irksome stuff: While the line in/aux port does in fact work quite well (I tried it out with my old-school iPod and my new Kindle Fire), and while I could wedge these non-Bluetooth devices into the speaker, you cannot use the kickstand if you have something plugged into that port, because in "kickstand mode" the aux port, the micro USB port (for charging), and *all the controls* are on the bottom. That's right; even if you aren't using the aux port and aren't charging, if you have your iPad in the speaker, and propped up with the kickstand, say in the middle of watching some videos, and you need to turn the volume up or down you'll need to pick it all up and reach underneath or lay it down to adjust the volume, then place it upright again.
The other irksome thing is that while the volume controls on the speaker do work when it's connected to a Bluetooth device, they do not work when using the aux port.Read more ›
The sound is clear, but not as full bodied as I had hoped. Louder than the internal speaker on the iPad, I wish it was just a few notches louder. There is no bass response that I can hear - all mid-range and treble.
Too bad the kick stand doesn't fold into the Zooka. It feels like an afterthought. I have to agree with all the other reviewers that the controls should have been on the front of the speakers. If you put the Zooka on the bottom of your iPad, the controls are completely hidden. When the Zooka is on top, the volume controls are available, but the amount of pressure you need to use to make them work causes the magnetic Smart Cover to fall off, allowing the now top heavy iPad to fall over. Annoying.
My biggest complaint is that the Bluetooth seems to interfere with the wi-fi signal to my iPad. I cannot stream video on the iPad via wi-fi without the video stalling and buffering. Also, the video quality suffers the entire time the Zooka is powered on. Is this a common problem with the Bluetooth and wi-fi combination? I just tried the Zooka with my iPhone and it stalls and buffers as well. With the Bluetooth off on both the iPad and iPhone, streaming via wi-fi is fine.
Has anyone else had this problem?
All these shortcomings are a shame, because it's a great idea.
Shortly after I posted my review of the Zooka, I looked online to see if I could find any information about Bluetooth/WiFi interference.Read more ›
Here is the quick pro/con rundown with more details below.
- Bluetooth sound
- Short USB cord
- Background noise when charging and listening
- Power button not responsive
- Bluetooth delay when turned on.
- Too heavy to actually put on top of mackbook air monitor, unless a 90degree viewing angle is OK.
- looks nice
- sounds good with wired connection
Also the weight of the speaker means that you can only put it on top of the monitor if it is at 90 deegree angle. Otherwise, it moves. At least on a macbook air.
Then, there is the USB cord that measures 10 inches or so. Not enough to charge it if it is on top of the monitor even... At least that's a standard micro-usb, but just shows a lack of foresight.
There is also a problem with the power on/off and the time it takes to register the bluetooth connection when turned on. If you power the device off then try to turn it back on, it will take 15-20 seconds before you can get it to work. Quite strange really. Also, once turned on, it takes another 20-30 seconds for the computer to find it.
At least, the wired sound is good, but then the speakers do not come with a cord, so you have to get one yourself. Overall I am very disappointed with this product as its flaw are so central to the usage I was hoping to do with it.

The speaker did not meet my expectations. There was no way to connect it to my iPad without purchasing an additional connection. I'm sure it's fine for other products. Read morePublished 5 months ago by nicenirish
The plug is on the bottom of the unit. You cannot put the IPad on the stand AND plug the speaker in at the same time. Otherwise, the unit feels like a quality product.Published 6 months ago by LaFleur
