Great speaker! Posted by: from: Fort Worth, TX on I own one of these and bought another one 6 months later for my in-laws to use at their pool at home. Also bought the smaller version for my nephew. This speaker is perfect for the pool or when we go tubing. The battery can last a really long time, it can easily handle an all day use. The speaker sounds good. Nice and clear with no distortion, has a decent amount of bass. You can't adjust the treble or bass on this unit, but I don't consider that a downfall. It's pretty durable. Ive dropped it on cement, in sand, and in mud and it's held up fine. Pairs with Bluetooth easily and I've gotten up to 30 feet away from the unit while it was paired to my phone and it didn't skip a beat. Took it tubing a few weeks ago and strangers where impressed that it floats and you can sink it under the water, pull it back out and it works and sounds fine. Keep it in my car cause I never know when I'll use it next. Get it, you'll love owning this thing.

Great speaker at first Posted by: from: on Works great sounds great about a week into owning it, it would be fully charged or nearly full and it would randomly turn itself off while playing music, it wasn't turned up too loud or anything so it couldn't be the voltage going too low for it to stay on. Must of had something internally wrong when made or something because I never dropped or damaged it whatsoever

Quit charging after 1 week Posted by: from: on I wish I could review with 5 stars. The speaker works great and fits what I was looking for perfectly. I was pumped to find a speaker that sounded as good as this one with the portable features this device has. But after one week of in home use it will not charge when plugged in. The reviews on here are mostly positive but there are several who have had charging issues and I am one of them now. Highly dissappointed after spending the amount of money this thing costs. Guess I'll find how well the return policy is.

Great sound from a portable speaker! Posted by: from: Long Island, NY on I bought this as a gift for my wife, to use at the beach. She wanted a rugged, portable speaker that was sand proof, waterproof and had high quality, very loud sound, for playing music on her iPhone via Bluetooth wireless. She is very happy with this unit, having used it several times at the beach.

Love it! Posted by: from: on I was looking for a Bluetooth speaker for some time for workouts in the garage. The one I received before this one (different brand) was HORRIBLE. Cheaply made & never connected. I saw this one online & went into my local Besy Buy. Got it on sale & used my rewards so it was a better buy! It was super easy to set up & worked as instructed. I've gotten more use out of it taking it with me around the house. So have the rest of the family members. It's better than the one I ordered from QVC that has a docking station. Sound quality is phenomenal and battery life is longer than I thought it would be. Use it about an hour or two 3-4 times a week. Didn't have to recharge it till a month & a half after the first charge. So worth the price even if it's not on sale!

Couldn't beat the price! Posted by: from: on I bought the mini BoomJacket when it was on sale and it had amazing sound while I used it. A week later, this model was 50% off as their newest lineup was coming out so I returned the one I had and bought this one. Again, amazing sound and I love the fact that it's water and all that proof. Only downside is you can only pair one device to the speaker to use it and nothing else will connect while the one device is currently paired.

Booming Sound! Posted by: from: Gray,Ga. on This is a fantastic little boom box for at home or on the go. It works great for the patio when I'm cooking out for family or friends.

Solid - Sound is OK Posted by: from: on Product seems to be solid and well made, seems like it could survive a hurricane but the sound quality is moderate. The speaker can get very loud and so far i've had it in direct hot sun and it's done fine. Just wish the audio was better. Also not so sure on the battery life so far it doesn't seem like it's as long as what they advertise so a little disappointed.

Great Speaker Posted by: from: on This is a great waterproof/rugged speaker! I have tried a few different brands of waterproof speakers and one thing I love about this one that sets it apart is the ability to skip tracks and pause right from the speaker and not from the phone or devise that it is playing from. Seems to hold a charge pretty well. Not as long as they advertise but still good enough to get lots of use between charging. The one downside of this speaker is the Bluetooth range. It has to be completely clear line of site for it to really work. Even a screen door in between or if you are a very short distance with your phone in your pocket and you turn your back to the speaker so your body is between the two devises and it starts to cut out. I usually just leave my device next to the speaker though and the sound carries great. Would definitely recommend this product.
