Excerpt: Bluetooth speakers are like cheap econobox cars: Even in normal daily use, you're likely to push them to their limits. Most of the compact Bluetooth speakers I test put out 81 to 87 dB at 1 meter, loud enough for casual listening but not loud enough to get your foot tapping and your head bobbing.
Excerpt: The Good Loud, reasonably clear sound - Compact, lightweight, durable - Replaceable 10-hour battery - Low price The Bad Sound distorts slightly at high volumes - No bass punch - Relatively plain design - Battery compartment could leave speaker vulnerable to liquids - Short charging cable - Long charging times Headphones and portable speakers are, for my money, still the best uses of Bluetooth, at least when it comes to audio.
Conclusion: With an asking price of $129.99, it’s neither the cheapest nor the most expensive option, but expect to find offers well below that once availability increases. Currently the RocksteadyXS is only available at a few online stores, up-to-date information can be found on the www.KillerC.com website.
Pros: Easy to set-up, Lightweight, Robust, Loud, Clear sound with speech
Cons: Not that sexy, Sound can be tinny in some situations
