Summary: I bought this item (for $50 more) rather than the Flip because of the 12 hour playtime between charges claim. After almost 30 days, several charges and obtaining only 6 hours *at best* between charges, I returned it and ordered another. The second one is no better. Actually it's worse. I've yet to get 6 hours play time between charges. I use it for 2-3 hours at a time, low volume. So my usage model doesn't seem to be abnormal. Very disappointing.
Summary: Picked one of these up because of the reviews. It sounds very nice for the size of the package but...Why do I need to pair it up after it's been powered off or on standby mode? My Mac has Bluetooth and I figured I'd stream some iTunes to it to break it it but it's a multi step process to pair it up. The Apple Bluetooth keyboard and mouse Im using right now to post this review doesn't require me to pair it up each time so why should this?
Summary: I bought the speaker to play night time relaxation music with the hope of simple blue tooth connection to my smartphone. Unfortunately the sound quality with Bluetooth is poor and the speaker shuts itself down automatically after 20-30 minutes, even when it is charging. When restarting the speaker from auto shutdown it gives out a loud beep sound that cannot be adjusted. Not very relaxing at all. Probably ok for day time on the go use. Returned for a refund.
Summary: this is average speaker ,quality is not bad but nothing really special about the sound and bass.it should be better for this price and jbl.music gets spoil at the last levels.Battery is average i was expecting bit longer life.i thing it expensive for the quality.you can get same quality cheaper.
