Summary: It plays well but I starts up at full volume. It simply surprises the heck out of you when it starts up. You have to have your finger ready at the volume control when you start it to lower it quickly.
Summary: I received this speaker as a gift from a friend. I was really excited since it had the one thing I had been searching for - a headphone jack! I could turn the speaker down low and listen to it on my desk at work, and when I heard a song I wanted to turn up the volume on I could grab the ear buds, turn off the speak and crack it up! Or just leave in the ear buds as long as I was not getting up and down from my desk.
Summary: I really like the sound of this small speaker. The "off and on button" stopped functioning after a few months though. The only way it would work was when I plugged it into my computer via usb.
