Summary: not sure what kind of business this is, but I recieved this speaker a few days before the holidays and I couldnt really reorder it or anything else since I couldnt be gift-less.. the package was damaged and the inner packaging was not addressed to me - but someone in china. this is not an inexpensive item and the condition was really not how I would have liked to recieve it.
Summary: I've got an IPAd 4 and the volume sometimes is just low. Nothing wrong with my IPAD. It's just sometimes when you click on youtube videos, movies or whatever, the volume is not the same depending on the person who posted the video. Anyhow, I got this too amplify the sound. Sometimes, it's still not that loud to me. No, I don't have hearing problems or anything like that. Plus the sound quality is just ok. It's just doesn't get that loud.
Summary: I bought this as a substitution for what I REALLY wanted which was a Big Jambox ... unfortunately that was slightly out of my price range and I wanted something to stream music and radio on in my one bedroom house. Here's a quick overview of pros and cons: Pros: - Pretty good sound - can be relatively loud if needed - Easy to use and pair - Cute design - small but functional. I also like how it comes in a variety of colors to match decor - Portable - take it anywhere!
Summary: A bit deficient on the bass (no surprise) but the real problem for me is using it with by Android phone as an alarm. They are noticeably out of sync. I also have a JBL Flip, which doesn't work with the phone alarm, but has better sound overall.
Summary: this unit is ok. doesn't put out a huge amount of sound (not like jbl's flip, which unfortunately has a short battery life & poor bluetooth range). it is a bit muddy sounding compared to the flip also. vocals from artists like lightfoot, croce, and john denver are not good. it seems to eliminate a lot of strings to accomplish more bass. yes, it will vibrate the table top a little at it's underwhelming max volume, but at the expense of other ranges/vocals.
Somebody else actually listen to other speakers and review

Summary: How the heck is this thing getting 5 stars with other speakers out there that are far better? Do the best buy test, and go play with the other speakers; you will save yourself the aggravation of returning the thing. Here's the weird thing - the speaker itself is small, but it isn't the smallest bluetooth speaker. The JBL flip is maybe a little smaller, but longer, and has amazing sound.
