Summary: Very Impressed by this speaker. I have access to these where I work so I compared this to the Bose Soundlink III and the Jawbone Big JamBox, and the Bose Soundlink Mini and the Beats Pill 2. It's hard to compare all these BT speakers. It kinda depends on what you want to use them for and what music you will be playing on them, how loud, plus what features you want and how portable.
Summary: Outstanding sound from a compact unit about the size of a brick. Should have a cutout for easy lifting as you have to tilt to get under it to lift. I rate it only 3 stars however since the Bluetooth stopped working after only 5 days of use. Perhaps just a lemon?
Summary: Switched from a JBL Flip to this work of art. The JBL Flip was ok but I needed more punch. This gave it to me. The KMC 3 is way too big and lacks rechargeable batteries, this baby has plenty of punch, great definition, and sounds awesome!!!! Got it at another website for less but I still love Amazon.
Summary: I bought it to replace a JBL flip. The sound is a little bit better and a little more powerful. I am a little disappointed and I thought I would get more punch but I think that's my fault for setting my expectations a little high. I was debating to buy this or the KMC-3, and decided to go with the KMC-1 becuase of its size. It does sound louder than the JBL flip though.
Summary: Love this thing. I have had Bose and this. The Bose is more compact and I think does better at low volumes (1/4 volume or less) but I bought this mostly for outdoor use. Still very portable, can charge your phone, good battery life, and powerful. I prefer this to the Bose at medium to high volumes for all kinds of audio files. Get it when its on sale ($220 or less) and you will not be disappointed.
The best bluetooth wireless speaker (among the many I have tested)

Summary: Just when I had given up on finding a bluetooth portable speaker that I would find satisfying, I finally found the one I was looking for. I tested just about all the main brands and models on the market (Bose, UE/Logitech, JBL, Jawbone, Sony, Soundmatters, Beats, Samsung, etc), and I spent a lot of time testing speakers in-store, as well as in my music production studio (always using sine wave test tones, pink noise, and a playlist of various musical material that tests...
Summary: Pros: Surprisingly loud. Well-defined bass and treble- can hear lots of little details you miss on other speakers. Bass is impressive- not floor-shaking, but more than you'd expect from a device this size. Nice battery life. Rubber pad on top is a nice place to leave your mobile device. I like the way the orange color looks. Convenient USB charger and 1/8" input.
Summary: Klipsch KMC 1 puts out some great music and lots of volume ( for what it is ). I like it a lot and have found that it has some great battery life.....I played it using and powering my iPod Nano 7th gen at full volume and the KMC 1 at 90% volume and it lasted 12 hours ( timed ) and still had power ( one light strip left ).
