Summary: Highly, highly recommend this product. Well worth the money. Purchased item for work, bought another for the house after I heard the sound. Chose this portable unit over more expensive unit simply because of the clear sound including clear bass and vocals with unit wide open, and it gets very loud!!!
Summary: The Bose is the 3rd portable I've purchased. The other two, in the $150-250, had terrible sound or they broke down. So I finally broke down and forked over the $$$ to get the best. And it is!!! This unit provides exceptional sound quality at all volume levels. It could be your only sound system, for the house or the beach. Very well-designed. Love the touch-sensitive volume control. Quality shocked my friends and family.
Summary: Purchased this for my girlfriend and she is loving it. She has daughters 20,18,and 17 they are jealous and not allowed to touch. Charge does last 8 hours as advertised. Remote is limited but does the trick.
