Summary: I bought this after seeing a friends Jambone Jawbox speaker. I wanted a nice compact little Bluetooth speaker that would give good sound, but wasn't in the mood to pay Jawbox prices. Creative devices have been in my life, in one form or another, for ten years, so I knew the quality would be good. My experience has not disappointed me. I use this speaker daily, Bluetooth pairing with iPod (touch) and ipad has been smooth and trouble free.
