Nice speaker, but... Posted by: from: Las Cruces, NM on The speaker itself is great, nice sound from such a small speaker. The only complaint I have is the annoying voice prompts. "POWERING ON!! WELCOME TO ALTEC LANSING!!" If you aren't expecting it, you will jump. In a small enclosure like a shower, it's like the voice of God yelling at you that it is doing something.

Amazing sound for such a small speaker Posted by: from: on I was rather taken back with the sound from this little speaker when I first tried a demo unit. The sound that comes out of it is really impressive and it's more or less life proof (waterproof/shockproof/dustproof). We got a handful of them for Christmas presents for everyone in our family and they've held up really well. The bass waivers a bit when turned up all the way but not any worse than anything else this size and it puts out much more than many twice it's size. It has a built in rechargeable battery and a charge holds pretty well. It is recharged with a standard micro usb charge cable (like a cell phone charger), or plugged into the computer (for charging only). I've tried using one of them a little bit for cell speakerphone and online for a skype speaker with a PC Bluetooth adapter... They leave a little to be desired for microphone use, but for music playback they are just awesome. The only thing I wish they had done different with this is the "voice" that says "powering on", "paired with", "powering down" is full volume, always...

Great for Beach Posted by: from: on We bought this little speaker to use in our pop-up cabana while on the beach. It has plenty of volume, even with the sound of the Ocean and other people around us. We set it to about 50% volume, The clarity is good as well. Battery life also seems good. We've used it about 8 hours and have not had to recharge.

Pretty loud for its size Posted by: from: on Works great, pairs easily and is very lightweight. As with most Bluetooth devices it eats phone battery but not too bad. Probably get another one in a different color for the kids. Beats spending $100+ on the upper end models that aren't water proof. Recommend!

Good Sound / Annoying "welcome to altec lansing" Posted by: from: on Speaker does the job. But I agree with other reviewers about the annoying "welcome to altec lansing" voice. Is it really necessary to welcome me every time I turn it on?? Good value though

Incredible sound for small speaker! Posted by: from: on I bought this small Bluetooth speaker but I was skeptical about the sound quality not until I started listening to some tunes. You get crystal clear sound with some booming bass that doesn't sound too over powering. I was very surprise about how loud this mini speaker can get without distortion. My two best features that got me sold were the long battery life and being waterproof for a very reasonable price!

Voice is unbearable Posted by: from: on The speaker itself is ok and durable, decent sounding if not for the voice I would give it 4 stars but the voice that tells you it is paired and connected or disconnected etc is so rediculously loud it merited barely two stars. We live where we work and this speaker cannot be used during the working hours because it is so loud it is disturbing. Even if I didn't live where I work I couldn't stand it as the voice actually hurts your ears.

Great speaker for its size. Posted by: from: on This is a very versatile speaker with very good sound. It is easy to carry, which makes very practical, as we carry it every where we go. We like to use it as we drive and we can even take calls with it. We like it so much that we have bought more of these speakers to give as presents.
