Summary: When travelling I like to be able to play music, audiobooks etc. with having to use headphones or suffer the distortion form my iPhone built-in speakers at full volume. Equally, I don't want to have wires trailing about after me. This handy bluetooth speaker is just what I need. Pairing is aided by voice prompts and is relatively simple. Once done, your chosen music device will automatically connect when in range.
Summary: Great sound from this speaker, far better than you would expect from something this size. The battery performance is good as well - I managed to get nearly 9 hours from a full charge. Simple and stylish design, with very straightforward controls, and the bluetooth links up quickly and without fuss (though like a couple of other reviewers, I also noticed occasional dropouts when paired to my mobile); the gesture control is a fantastic feature.
Summary: A nice compact speaker with good looks and sound. It's small so fits easily in your bag if you're going away and the bluetooth works well so no wires. Only drawback I've come across is trying to change the device it's paired to, but I think I just need to perservere. Overall, eat product, could do with better instructions.
Great speaker, but stereo pairing leaves more to be desired.

Summary: Great speaker, easy to pair with Bluetooth devices. When trying to pair 2 of these for stereo sound, problems occur. One channel suffers dropouts and also has crackle. I've tried several times to pair for stereo, but to no avail. I tried placing both speakers right in front of the Bluetooth transmitted (usp) and the problem still occurred. As a stand alone speaker this item is great.
