After all the revies online I expected a little more...

  • Summary: Well, I probably hyped myself up over this device a little too much before I got it. I was expecting some amazing sound quality and battery life. First, I'm a bit of a snob when it comes to sound quality so take that with a grain of salt. I bought this because at the time it was one of the only devices that supported aptX Bluetooth streaming. I really hate the sound quality of Bluetooth devices.

Not spectacular

  • Summary: Good sound but not as loud as the advertising. It certainly does NOT fill a room. Sounds great from three feet away, making it useful for some things.

  • Summary: While ot worked as advertised. It doesn't produce volume any louder than a laptop. The output cuts in and out in a quiet room.

I quite agree with the "underwhelming" review

  • Summary: I'm not a particularly musical person; I don't have the ear to tell you what's wrong with the sound coming out of this little box. I just know I am too aware of the quality problems to get lost in the music. I think its fine, like if I were a dance instructor and I needed my music to be small and portable it would be fine for that.

Was Good Back in 2011. Not Competitive Today

  • Summary: The foxlv2 has solid build quality, attractive looks, is incredibly small, pairs up easily with Bluetooth devices, and has long battery life. Sound quality is at least very close to the competing Bose product, which might be somewhat more room filling, but much larger. Both distort about the same amount at top sound volume. The Jambox did not seem as loud to me and distorted more at top sound volume.

Underwhelming

Technophile 54, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought the Soundmatters foxLv2 based upon all the glowing reviews, so maybe my expectations were too high. Decent bass for the size, but the speaker is tiny and you can't defy the laws of physics, you can only bend them. While I didn't take any acoustic measurements, the speaker is seriously lacking in weight in the mid-bass, giving the sound a very thin overall sound. There is also a veil of distortion in the midrange and treble.

Disappointed, sadly

Tim Kimzey "fstop", Amazon

  • Summary: Well, i have to say--and i hate to say it--but i'm disappointed. Maybe because i read so many glowing reviews, i was expecting too much. Maybe my ears have become too critical over years of listening. But to my ears, the foxl sounds THIN, particularly in midrange frequencies. It has the ummph of the bass, and somewhat-detailed highs, but not a fullness of even sound (flat frequency response), or warmth.

For two bills I was hoping for better

  • Summary: I got this small speaker for my iPad 2 so I could bypass the lousy speakers that are on the iPad. One thing I was looking really forward to was using the speakerphone feature with Facetime. Unfortunately that was a disappointment as my friend on the other end said I sounded muffled. When I bypassed bluetooth and connected the speakers with a cable the sound was acceptable.

look carefully before buying

  • Summary: Make sure you want the non-bluetooth version before buying, it is OK sounding, but it was not clear that this didn't include wireless. As a speaker it is OK, but rather expensive for the increment in sound quality over other, less expensive plug-in speakers.

pas mal

Stephan L. Burton, Amazon

  • Summary: I am listening to these speakers as I write this. They are definitely better than the average bear. But to describe them as "good enough for an audio purist" is absurd. Middle frequencies, in particular, are dull, muddy, & generally unpleasant to listen to. Still, this is probably the best you can get, for the money. Just don't expect any miracles.
