Summary: I don't think I'd have been happy paying full price ($249) for this, but quite happy now that it is highly discounted on Amazon. Love the compact size for storage and travel. Battery life is great. Easy to synch with iPhone/iPad etc. Sounds is as you'd expect based on the size of the speakers. Bass is not the greatest. Build quality is excellent.
Summary: Easy to install on bike, better than average instructions but they weren't really needed. The mount is very very sturdy and the unit snaps into place very securely. A bit pricey at almost half the current price of the speaker but other than price this is great.
Summary: Synchs simply with bluetooth. I have it on my bike with the associated bike mount. Turn the tunes on my phone on and crank it on my bike. This is currently the trailing generation with a price which matches its status. This is a fantastic deal. The new one is $200, don't waste your money. You will not be disappointed with this for portable tunes. Bass is particularly surprising. When it is playing and you remove it from the bike the bass in your hands is very surprising.
Tiny high end system. The ultimate bedroom / travel speaker!

Summary: Finally a portable system with a full range flat response! Natural sounding. What a seasoned audiophile is looking for. Not a party speaker. A system worthy of critical listening at normal volume levels wih the door closed. Careful placement and a quality source will be rewarded with a quality of sound that most people are never exposed to. A few years ago I bought the first soundmatters foxl. A candy bar sized bluetooth speaker with an amazingly flat response.
Summary: My son-in-law did some research for me as I was looking for a portable speaker to use with an MP3 player. He found this to be highly rated. I am very happy that I took his advise. This speaker is small but mighty. I have used it with a variety of music styles and it has been fantastic. Both vocals and instrumentals sound great.
Summary: After testing many candidates, I found plenty of choices: sound more louder, more powerful, more crystalline, etc ... but in the end none as fair and a close balance of headphones this little Foxl. It has balance and that is the most musical sound. His only fault is not to be very powerful and sometimes saturate following songs at high volume. But for the rest, it is ideal!
