Poor communication/service

ShayK "47", Amazon
4 May 2009
  • Summary: This product was used but said new and not anything like I thought it would be. I tried to return it and get my money back but they would not let me and just sent me the same player again. I kept asking for my money back and they would not even respond to that, they just kept saying they would send me another one, even though I did not want the player.

Burned twice!

H. Shaw "hollysprite", Amazon

  • Summary: I really loved these speakers with their cute little bag that had a space for the ipod itself (yes, lame reason, but there it is). They also had such good sound for small speakers, that when they started malfunctioning by making popping cut out sounds with heavy bass, I returned them for a refund and ordered them again from a different seller. Unfortunately, I had the same popping noises happen again within a week, so I had to return them once again.

  • Summary: I have had two of these and both have failed quite quickly. Amazon did not want to refund the second unit and emailed me about a widespread problem with this unit. Dont waste your money or time on this one.

2 different units and both died within weeks

gadget girl, Amazon

  • Summary: I received these as a Christmas gift (mainly chosen because of the good Amazon reviews. And at first I loved them. They are small but have good sound. True, when you turn the unit on the sound is VERY loud until you turn it down, but that was really the only negative. Until my unit stopped working about 3 weeks after I received it. Contacted Amazon and they sent me another one. Well, 3 weeks into the NEW one it has stopped working too.

Don't buy it

Emale, Amazon

  • Summary: I really hate negative reviews. They sort of bring me down. This review is intended to help others avoid the mistake I made. Let me start by saying that the concept of this product really is excellent in that it can not only accept audio from your iPod but also any output jack (meaning such things as your computer or a third music source such as a CD player, etc.) The really great feature is that you can connect your iPod via USB and thus sync your iPod to iTunes.

  • Summary: Well, for the first few minutes the sound was great. Then the speakers completely died. No sound. NNNo power. Nothing. I am very frustrated as I just received this in the mail today. I have contacted Dbroth for a refund request so I will post an update on how that goes.

Poor Sound Quality

Overstock
28 December 2007
  • Summary: The size is great, the fact that it comes with connectors to different outlets, a bag for it and it can opperate on batteries is all really helpful but my 10 year old boom box has better sound quality! It distorts at any type of moderately loud volume. While the rest of the features are desireable I am primarily trying to purchase a product with good sound quality and that is where this product fails.
