Summary: I purchased the Solemate as a take-anywhere, weather resistant speaker because of the positive reviews and its appearance. However, no matter how I situated it, all types of music sounded like they were muffled, like it was playing through a pillow.
Summary: This thing is pretty great all around. It has enough depth of sound to satisfy me and it wasn't all that expensive either. The battery lasts forever and recharges fairly quickly. I wanted to buy the MAX edition but it is three times the price! This is definately a good purchase if you are looking for a tough speaker that just works all the time and sounds good too.
Summary: The sound from the Bluetooth speaker was great for a couple of months until the USB charging port broke, rendering the speaker useless. I really hate these USB charging schemes, they are the weak point of any electronic device.
Summary: I consider myself an audiophile, and this little speaker surprised. Relatively powerful, round bass notes, well defined highs and mids as long as you don't blast it. Bluetooth works perfectly and it's a smartly packaged simple to operate speaker. After much research and experience with other bluetooth speakers (jawbone, skullcandy, etc) this is no doubt the best out there for the money.
Excerpt: I'm very happy with this speaker. I needed small Bluetooth speakers to go everywhere and to have decent sound quality for a reasonable price, Which is the case! The sound is very good but not especially loud and you don't want to put the volume to the maximum. If you put the speakers against a wall the sound can be very powerful and with a lot more bass for a speaker of this size.
Pros: Durable, Easy Controls, Good Sound Quality, Lightweight
