I hope you have better luck at it than I did

Summary: Length:: 2:26 Mins I think I got a defective unit, because I couldn't get the bluetooth to work reliably enough on this to do a 2-minute video review. It kept shorting out on me after working for just a little bit, and it shorted out if I moved the unit around while it was plugged in.
Summary: Maybe I'm not the typical customer for something like Creative Sound's BlasterAxx SBX 10 Wireless Bluetooth Speaker. I do a lot of cooking and like to listen to music in the kitchen. Since I use my iPhone for both the music and my cooking apps, this meant docking the phone on a stationary speaker and trying to use the apps as best I could.
Great speaker, looks cool, but lousy for teleconferencing

Summary: I love having this speaker on my desk. It looks like the Obelisque from 2001 A Spacy Odyssey. The sound for playing music is awesome and I love the capacitive touch glass on top of the speaker. All I have to do is tap it to mute when a phone call comes in or if someone comes in the office for a meeting. What I don't like it is is really poor as a mic for Skype calls. In fact, it is basically unusable for that purpose.
Summary: I reviewed the SBX8 a few months back, and this SBX10 isn't much of an upgrade. Not that it's a bad thing, but you'd expect some noticeable difference between the two products. The biggest difference is the bluetooth data rate, but personally I can't notice much of a difference. For the price, I'd recommend picking up the SBX8 as it's pretty much the same speaker. This is made for accompaniment to a lap top, and for the most part, it delivers.
Summary: The Creative sound blaster speaker has some really cool ideas, the control panel on the top, the sleek look, the built in microphone for gamers. Unfortunately some of the ideas fall flat when it comes to actual usage. The biggest drawback of the built in microphone is the way it catches every little bit of background noise and amplifies it to the player you are talking to.
Summary: I got this item because I wanted an option besides headphones or my Mac's internal speakers for things like movies or music. I cannot speak to its usefulness as a tool for making calls, videoconferencing, etc. The item is nice looking. The look and feel of the controls on it is pleasing, and it is fairly responsive. The sound that comes from it is louder and of better quality than my internal speakers, so it suits my needs.

Summary: Bought it on sale a couple of months ago. It looks really nice. Nevertheless, here is a list of issues you may have: - Volume touch panel sensitivity is rather sporadic, then smooth (they claim that it was fixed in new firmware, but I can't update the device on my MacBook Pro New) - For MAC users! Download ZIP files and not DMG, otherwise it won't work.
Summary: Following on from my previous review of the older model on Amazon.com, I'd say this isn't a significant upgrade in terms of sound, but its connectivity with the iPad is better and the microphone has better range. Recommended for a new buy, but not for someone looking for a duplicate - save your money, unless you really feel you need the upgrade.
Summary: I can't add much to the positive reviews and the sound is very good and clear...you can connect it direct to your computer and overtake your own computer sound with it but I too,found the instructions for use with other devices a trifle obtuse and stingy...what I didn't like and this is a big one is that the touch controls on top of the machine are very tricky to use and very and in fact almost uncontrollable until and if you can learn to tap them very skillfully...
