Okay for what it is
on February 22, 2013
As opposed to the other reviews on here, this speaker is neither LOUD, nor is it quiet as a mouse. If I use it on my back deck during the day with general background noise, having it turned halfway up is enough to fill the deck with sound, yet still comfortably carry a conversation. It's okay. Not a great speaker, but not bad.
ILuv sells other speakers in this price range that carry better, louder sound and charge/dock your phone. But that's not what you're paying for with this speaker. You're paying for the wireless feature and portability. For that, this speaker serves its purpose just fine. Also, it has a USB charge port, so you don't have to keep buying batteries.
I saw it going for $50 at Urban Outfitters, which is way overpriced. I would say it's worth $30-35 for the convenience of wireless and portability. It has a regular aux jack for plugging in, too, if you're not Bluetooth enabled. But if you're not going to use it for the wireless, i say invest the same money on a better speaker.
