I played two songs as a test: http://www.amazon.com/Misery-Original-Mix/dp/B003UQZL82/ref=sr_1_30?ie=UTF8&s=dmusic&qid=1327623665&sr=1-30 and http://www.amazon.com/Nite-Original-Mix/dp/B002P95JB4/ref=sr_1_23?ie=UTF8&s=dmusic&qid=1327623665&sr=1-23
Both songs helped me confirmed these conclusions:
Decent bass. Granted, it isn't as good as my cars' stereos (I have factory, basic stereos on my Toyota Camry 2000 and my Nissan Sentra SR special edition 2012). However, it produces enough bass that I actually can "feel" the thump.
Portability. I love how portable this thing is! You unfold it to let it stand on the table or the floor, and fold it up to take it with you. The pictures are quite accurate. Unlike what some reviewers say, I feel it is quite sturdy. It's pretty heavy.
It comes with an aux jack, which is what I used. I tested it with my computer. I can only assume that on an ipod, the sound quality should be even better since it's a direct connection.
Power button. My other portable speaker doesn't have one. I hate that. I found that I had to disconnect the power and it drives me nuts.
Overall, the sound quality is quite balanced.
It can use more clarity in its sound. I can't hear the "little details" as much, but overall it gives a smooth feel.
Not very loud. It's probably okay in a small room, but it's definitely not good enough at a larger, noisier party.
It squeaks at certain high notes. My computer speaker does not do that. However, I do have it turned on to the highest (though I don't at all feel that it's LOUD).
Well, I like it. I'm not sure I would ever buy one if I don't already have it, but I think it would be great for someone who needs to travel on business trips and give presentations. This would be a good addition to the portal projector packages in a meeting.
Personally, I'm going to put it in my classroom - the computer speakers that come from my schools are terrible.
