Great Speaker Posted by: from: on I've only had this speaker for two months now. So far so good. I did a lot of research before I bought this. It has good sound, reasonable price, sand and water proof, (I did a beach trip test) and great travel size. I did not need anything fancy just something simple and this was perfect. Pros: Sound is very good to my taste Price was reasonable Audio levels are decent Perfect for traveling or a quick grab and go; (beach, plane, bike riding you name it it will work for your traveling needs) Good Size: Fits right in your pocket Cons: Nothing so far. The only thing is that I might have gotten a bad audio jack cable that comes with it. I kinda have to fool with it a bit at first until I get the sound from my Ipod to play. It still works. But I will update this review if anything else comes up.

Works good for what I needed Posted by: from: on I'm sure it's not the greatest in sound quality but it's easy to use and has enough volume for small spaces. Just needed something small and portable to use in the shower, bath or at my desk.

Big sound in small device Posted by: from: on I have 4 or 5 Bluetooth speakers already. One for work, one for the bathroom, one for karaoke, one in my bedroom and one for my garage. But all of them are too big for hiking and biking. The reason I like this Altec one is that it's small enough to fit in the front mesh pocket of my water backpack and still puts out good volume. My favorite Bluetooth in my collection is this little guy.

Sounds great Posted by: from: on This speaker sounds great for the price! Only drawback is when connecting to a device the speaker announces to everyone within a 100 feet that "you are now connected". The same when you turn the device on, off or plug in to charge. Other than not being able to lower the volume on that announcement, it is a great buy.

Great causal speaker. Posted by: from: on My intention of buying was to get a small, portable and water resistant/splash proof speaker. I had seen a bigger version of these and enjoyed the fact that they were full waterproof and shock proof. When I caught eyes on the Mini I had to try it. It's great! For its size it has loud sound. Had pretty good bass for its size. Not extravagant but better than expected for its size. The waterproof works great. Have used it in the shower and a pool and found that it works as advertised. The sounds muffles a bit when pulled out of the water but when the drivers dry, which takes about a minute, the sound comes back just the same. The battery life is really the only gripe I have. Up to 6 hours is based on low listening. When on a fuller volume, I got about 4 hours out of it. In some instances, I had days in between charges. Just depends. Overall the design is great. Fits in the palm of my hand and fits perfect in my pocket. The carbiner clip is great for all uses. Overall I am satisfied with this product. If you are looking for amazing sound, don't expect so much out of this little thing. This is a product meant for a more casual (and affordable) approach to listening. Not for audiophiles.

Not a great speaker Posted by: from: on I returned as the sound wasn't all that great. I needed something for a small room, but the speaker in my phone gave just as good of sound. Also couldn't pair with my pic.
