“Boom Shake The Room! ”

This item is wonderful! I had a Logitech rechargeable speaker and this thing blows that out of the water. As its name implies, it’s portable and rechargeable. I will say that it is mobile but you are not going to fit it into a school backpack. You could be able to fit it into a carry on but it wouldnt leave much space for clothing. Battery life thus far is exceptional although I have just had it for a few weeks. When it arrived, I fully charged the battery and havent needed to plug it in since after a few hours of listening. Bluetooth was easy and straight forward letting me join an IPod Nano quickly. Sound quality is wonderful considering the price. Some audiophiles may moan about this and that but lets be realistic. This speaker is intended for those wanting to pump a lot of music at the beach/park/locker room/party/etc with good audio quality. If you are actually looking for audiophile quality, then you cant expect it in those environments. You definitely cant expect it in this price. This speaker produces wonderful rich audio that 99 percent of us will love. Another 1% won’t ever be happy.Only thing I’d change: This speaker is about the size of a small personal electric guitar amplifier. It’s about precisely the same weight as one too. It would be fine if there was a heavy duty strap over the surface of the speaker for easier single-handed carrying. Since it is designed, if you carry it with one hand you must hold it in the side causing the speaker to tilt and anything may be in the top tray may collapse out.Another notice: Should you find your mic doesnt work or has ceased working, double check the quantity levels. Both the Mic Volume and the Master Volume will correct the amount of the microphone….UPDATE:I really like this item so much that I went ahead and bought 4 more for other family members. They have been thrilled with theirs and every is functioning perfectly.

“A Loud And Versatile Speaker”

After using this speaker for almost a year Ive found it to be extremely helpful for a number of distinct conditions. I initially bought this speaker because I needed a dependable way to wirelessly play music during a friends wedding ceremony and for the cocktail hour of the reception which were situated in different areas than the main reception area in which the DJ gear was situated. This speaker truly exceeded my expectations. It’s LOUD and doesnt distort the audio at higher volumes. The Bluetooth range was amazingly long as well.After its use for the wedding Ive used it every day to listen to podcasts through my morning shower. Voices on podcasts come through quite cleanly even at high volume. Ive also used this speaker inside my garage when using power tools with ear protection and also at outdoor parties.The microphone that’s included with the speaker is the only negative part of this speaker. It really is a terrible quality mic. Since I dont have a need to utilize a mic with this speaker’m not taking away in the rating of this review.
