    Really disappointing

    • Written by from Palm Desert

    I've had this speaker for less than a year and I'm not impressed. It came with no supporting documentation and for some reason is only speaking to me in French. The sound is fine, but the charge does not hold for as long as expected. Only one control, to turn on and use as volume. No way to turn it off, just have to wait for it to turn itself off.

    One of the best

    • Written by from Montreal

    This is one of the best portable speakers out there. I have tried many and was most pleased with this one! It has some cool features and is super rugged making it good for trips and outdoor use. Should be $10 cheaper but still a quality buy in my mind.

    Learning curve...

    • Written by from MILLINGTON

    Once I became familiar with this great speaker I was very pleased. Make sure you read instructions carefully, at first I was very disappointed with sound volume until I realized there was a control on tops. Something I missed in instructions.

    Battery life is excellent...

    This thing is AMAZING!!!!!

    • Written by from Morrisville

    I bought this amazing little speaker the same day I bought my new iPod touch 5th gen. and it has been nothing but a pure joy blasting away with heavy bass in my back pack. It's such a cool speaker, and it is fun to use because its Bluetooth and you don't need to be near it to play music. You can be in a different room and surprise a friend or family member with a loud sound from the safety of a locked bathroom.

    Bought this for the boyfriend after seeing it at a Vendor Fair. The swipe to skip is cool, and despite it's small size, the sound is about as crisp and room-filling as my $600.00 Bose Sound Dock. Love that you're not tethered to any cords, and that he can clip it on his backpack and go. Now to just figure out how I can "borrow" it (permanently).....

    Great sound

    • Written by from Salem

    Wanted something convenient to listen to music in my bathroom while getting ready for the day. I'm pleasantly surprised at the volume and the range of sound it puts out. Sounds great. Battery appears ample, but it's got a plug-in. Buggy with my MacBook Air (Mountain Lion) with Bluetooth connect. MacBook REALLY doesn't like it when both it and my iPhone are connected at the same time. Hard to get it reconnected. Disappointed about that, seems like it should offer more of a seamless transition between both products.

    Excellent Bluetooth speaker

    • Written by from Mississauga

    I just bought this speaker and it has already impressed me not only with the volume of it but also the clear and crisp sound. The distance you can move your speaker from it's source is quite far. I highly recommend this speaker to anyone shopping in the less than $1000 price range. $179 is a steal

    Well worth the money

    • Written by from Niagara falls

    Just got this SB speaker, I love so much, nice design, sporty look. the unit not too big or too small, just right. The bluetooth range excellent, no interrupts at all. I got this up and run with in two minutes. The gesture play are really fun and felt very futureristic. I expected little more bass to it, but it okay. Many review had been told. I would recommend this speaker to all my friends.

    Yes it's expensive but it's awesome!

    • Written by from Huntington

    I have had my ShoqBox all summer. The sound is great from such a portable device. I have had it out at parties, plugged in at home and not had any problems with connections or battery life. I get an easy 7+ hours out of it. If it were slightly cheaper, I would get another one to pair and probably not need anything else in the house. Definitely be careful if you have more than one device on bluetooth at a time though as it is a simple device and can get "confused".

    Finally A Worthy Wireless Speaker

    • Written by from Plainview

    If you have ever purchased speakers for your iPad & iPhone you're probably used to disappointment as I was. Weak sound and awkward design made everything I tried a real waste of money. Then I dropped the $179 (hesitantly) on the ShoqBox on a recommendation from an iStore employee and am absolutely glad I did. This speaker is loud, clear, portable, rugged, and despite one review to the contrary, it pairs flawlessly with all of my Bluetooth devices (hint: if you have more than 1 device paired & Bluetooth ON on both devices you may get interference if they are both in range of the speaker). Also, battery is amazing, giving me 8+ hours at 75% volume. I'm going today to get a second one so I can enjoy the awesome sound in stereo!

    If I could only give it a -5 rating.

    • Written by from Baton Rouge

    This is the worst product that I have ever bought from the Apple Store. It won't hold a charge, won't stay connected, ... TERRIBLE! Do not buy it. Stay away. it worked fine for 2 days and now I get nothing. It sounded like a great product, but it isn't. Total lemon. We are at the beach trying to enjoy some tunes, but can't. I chose this over the Bose and will never stray again. If you are tempted to buy this, think carefully before you do.
