Proves that more money does not necessarily mean better

Summary: After picking up a PURE cube speaker at a local retailer for MORE than the UE, I was completely disappointing and returned it within 2 days. It sounded like crap. Muddy, weak, and an absolute nightmare to get the initial Bluetooth connection. I was so soured, I almost thought about giving up on portable Bluetooth speakers, but with so many positive reviews, I thought I'd give it one more chance. Wow.
Summary: Fantastic portable speaker. Will say, however, if you really want great sound out of this speaker, then use a mini RCA jack, listen to the music in HD or better. Place on a solid surface like a heavy table. Stand back and prepared to be amazed!
Summary: I love the design of this speaker. The handle is great for moving it from one place to another. The sound is great. Nice beats. The bass is crisp. The grill also continues all the way to the back of the boom box for a bigger sound. Some things I don't like: the speaker tends to make a "crackling" sound when playing music wirelessly. When the speaker is not plugged, music tends to play at a lower sound because it conserves battery life.
Summary: We have a bose dock unit and the sound quality is horrible. This unit outperforms it by far. The base is a bit warm but is fine for most music. I just got it so i cant comment on battery life. But i wish it was ten not six hours to justify the price a little more over the other ue models. However the other ue models dont compare on sound at all. The handle is just wrong. A strap would have been better. Have to say i have already forgot i own the bose.
Summary: Compared to the other ones that I have listened to, it sounds nice. Bass is a little heavy, but any input device with an equalizer can get around that for the most part. From there, the design is nice and it is very smooth looking with the buttons on either end. I want to compare this side by side with G-Boom. The one that I demo'ed at the store was trashed by other people turning it up all the way... so with that I didn't even try.
Summary: On a sound basis, this would get five stars. However, it was sold by "another seller", not Amazon. When we opened it, we found that the unit had obviously been used and repackaged. The handle was chipped in many places, the grill showed black marks that wouldn’t rub off, and the charging unit had obvious smudge marks on it. We returned it... we want to find another because it sounds GREAT, but will probably go to a retail store so we can make sure its NEW!
Summary: i received my boombox on time. I too have discovered that the volume level on these speakers will drop off considerably after about an hour of continuous play. LAME!! I also received a boombox that looked like the packaging had been 'resealed'. As in, NOT NEW but returned and resold to the next purchaser in line... ME!!! even had a little brown stain on it. There were no instructions included in the contents of the box.
