Summary: I've purchased both the Veho and the Jam, and there's no comparison. The Veho has much better sound, is better made, holds a longer charge, and using wifi, it transmits up to 130 feet -- over four times further than the Jam. Take it outside or somewhere in your home, it's so much more versatile than using Bluetooth. As long as you have wifi, this is the product to buy. P.S.
Web description mis-represented and erroneous - Disappointed
11 October 2013
Summary: This item was very disappointing and bad information was provided by the web site. The item is mis-represented and erroneous and did not perform as promised. Specifically, the Veho WIFI speaker comes with a dongle - which needs to be in the USB port to activate the speaker. However, when the dongle is inserted, it disables all other speakers attached to the computer. There is no solution or workaround.
Summary: This little speaker [which I purchased thru Amazon] is a great accessory for using Internet Radio. It comes with a "dongle" that will transmit the sound from a computer playing Internet Radio about 50-75 feet [thru walls]. It is not "stereo" but the sound quality is suitable for my listening demands. The battery lasts about four hours before needing recharge [takes about 2 hours, I think]. No charger is included.
Summary: I love these speakers. They will be great for setting around a room for giving presentations where I use video/audio in my PowerPoint. I love the fact that I can have as many speakers as I want all coming off the same signal/dongle. However, as stated in one of the other reviews, the dongle is a bit wide...and does not let me plug anything into the other USB port on the computer. EASY FIX...I bought a USB Hub for about 15 bucks.....
Summary: The speaker is small and sleek - I hate big bulky speakers so this was exactly what I was looking for. I live in an older home, so the walls are thin, so there's no issues with reception, I can put the speaker anywhere in my apartment and it sounds clear. Only reason this doesn't get five stars is something Veho won't tell you - I contacted their support team after not being able to find the individual speaker for sale - and I found there was a reason for that.
Summary: 5 stars if only they all worked. I ordered 3, 1 worked. I ordered 2 more, 1 worked. I'll be ordering 1 next week. I'm pretty sure the problem was related to the battery. 5 stars: It does what it says on the box. I have an Apple and live in a studio apartment. You plug in the dongle, reset audio to the dongle as an input and done. Music comes streaming out of the speakers anywhere in the wifi zone - without needing to plug them into a power supply.
Summary: It simply turns my wi-fi off, there is no connection at all when the dongle is plugged in. Emailed to Veho customer service with the question. Their recommendation was to try different USB ports and channels (there is a search channel button on the dognle). It didn't resolve the problem.
