Summary: This is a nice low cost and easy way to get Blue Tooth with sound that is overall good for the price. If you want the best get the JBL Pulse. Beats the JBL Charge slightty Crushes the JBL Flip The Mini Jambox sounds about as nice as the Pulse (better than the Charge and Flip and the Micro), but it is too soft. I also listened to some Klipch BT Speakers and liked the Pulse and Jambox better.
Summary: After all the rave reviews I decided to purchase this. It has very average sound quality (very little bass to speak of) and the volume gets to a fair level. I got it to use in the garage since my tablet just doesn't quite do the job. It will do ok for that but I wish I wouldn't have gotten this. I'm not so concerned about portability as I am about sound quality.
Returned it. Wasn't loud enough to use at the beach.

Summary: Just too small for outdoor use (not loud enough). It's Smaller than a hockey puck. if they would make one 6" in diameter we would have a serious portable speaker. Soon maybe? I ended up purchasing the iHome Mini Cube Bluetooth speaker instead which proved to be about 1/2 the price and ±30% louder.
Summary: For me there are three main factors - size, price and sound. Size is nice - smaller than some other ones it is compared to. More importantly, price wasn't bad. Sound - I can't really tell a difference between this and other similar blue tooth speakers I have heard. They all seem ok - at least the ones that have some bass. But they aren't very clear. They are handy and cheap (see above).
Summary: As a music educator, I needed something small to play tuning notes from an iPhone app. This works great––small and light enough to fit in my blazer pocket, and loud enough. For the size and money, do not expect to hear good bass if you play music.
Summary: I ordered this a couple months back and loved it! The sound quality was great, amazing enough considering its size. Connecting to Bluetooth with my iPhone wasn't an issue at all, and charging it was no hassle. I used it...I'd say every other day. It never left the house; the most outdoor action it got was a trip from my room to my backyard pool. I was really careful with it and everything.
Summary: In comparison to iHome iHM60GY (which is not bluetooth), the sound is much crisper with the sound traveling a little further. For instance, when cooking in the kitchen with the dishwasher going the, iHome can not be distinctly heard above the dishwasher noise, while the JBL Micro Wireless rises above the noise admirably. You also don't have to be sitting or standing close to it to hear it well like I had to with the iHome model.
Summary: Good quality sound and easy to use, but it doesn't get nearly loud enough. I use this with my ipad to watch shows while cooking and even when I have it turned all the way up it's still barely loud enough when I have my stove fan on. My son uses it to listen to music while shooting hoops and it doesn't get loud enough for that either. I guess we have to get a more expensive Bose system, but I was trying to avoid that!
