    Great Sound; Poor Battery

    • Written by from Louisville

    This device produces great sound and I love how loud it can get. However, the battery life is right around 4-5 hours which doesn't even get me through a full work day. It's also a little difficult getting the hang of connecting it to your bluetooth devices. If you're wanting a good device for it's sound, BUY IT. If you want a device for the maneuverability and battery life, don't buy it.

    Bluetooth works about 25% of the time

    • Written by from Watsonville

    The sound of this little speaker is fantastic, but the vast majority of the times I try to use it, it fails to connect to my computer, even when it's sitting 10 inches away. There seems to be no rhyme or reason to this inconsistency. If you're going to buy this product (the sound and small size make it worthwhile), purchase a speaker connector so you can make a hardwire connection between it and your iPhone, computer, or whatever.

    bluetooth problems

    • Written by from Toronto

    I'm also experiencing problems with the bluetooth cutting out. If I have my iphone in my pocket and just turn away from the speaker, or put my hand over my pocket, it skips... I see others have this problem, but does anyone not have this issue?
    I am thinking of returning it, but if the problem is limited to a subset of units, perhaps I should exchange it and try another unit.
    The sound is fantastic and the small footprint is great, so I am considering keeping it and simply leaving my phone beside it while using it - but this sort of defeats the purpose.

    Good sound but with issues

    • Written by from Clementon

    I thought this would be a good Bluetooth speaker but when I actualy gave it a whirl not so good first of all I had issues with skipping sounds and then crackling then the Bluetooth range is very limited. Not recommended
    The sound is ok if you hardware it but what's the sense also no micro USB charger that's even worse

    Brilliant Speaker with essential feature missing (for me and maybe others)

    • Written by from New York

    I read glowing reviews of this online, and I have to say the sound lives up to them. I can't believe this thing can fill my room with clear, non-distorted sound.

    The problem - this is a portable speaker, you're meant to take it on the road. The battery life is middling (5 hours stated, nowhere near it) and that would be fine except there's no USB port to charge it with. So, every time you need to charge, it's old-school mains adapter time. I don't want to carry an extra mains adapter in an age where everything except my macbook charges off USB. Every other Bluetooth speaker I've seen has a mini USB charging port, and I'm certain the second version of this will.

    I'm taking it back, but if this doesn't bother you, it's an amazing sound, easy pairing and great design
