Really Awesome Overall... Posted by: from: on Okay, this speaker is really awesome and I have to say that it's worth every penny. It sounds great, it's highly portable, and the fact that it's dust-proof, waterproof, and 100% buoyant really takes this speaker to the next level. However, the one gripe I have with this speaker is this: the "voice confirmation" when turning on the unit, pairing with devices, when a call comes in, and when powering down the speaker IS WAY TOO LOUD. I can be listening to music at a quiet volume, and the woman just SCREAMS the voice confirmation. I use this speaker at my office, and the high volume of her voice catches everyone off guard every time. I really wish I could turn the voice confirmation off or at least turn it down, as it really is louder than I ever have my music or anything else playing through the speaker. Why it's defaulted to be at full volume baffles me and is the sole mistake Altec Lansing made when designing this otherwise perfect portable speaker.

It's ok Posted by: from: on So I got this speaker after the Braves wouldn't connect to my devices. I was looking for a weatherproof speaker in my price range, this one is 99.99 and they have a larger version as well. First off, if you like your speaker to yell loudly at you that it's turned on, has connected, to enjoy, that it's been disconnected, and turned off- then this is the speaker for you! Personally, I can't stand it. I don't need my speaker to yell Enjoy! at me; I just want it to play my music and books. Anyway, I have had it for 8 months and I've never done anything extrenuos with it, it mostly sits on a table or counter, and it stopped charging! Altec also makes you pay to ship it to NJ so they can take a look at it. I am a bit disappointed with it, but it does get pretty loud and has pretty OK sound.

Delivers as Promised Posted by: from: on The life jacket speaker was just what we needed for our beach vacation. It's tough, tossed in a beach bag, and sand proof (tossed around on the beach). At the same time, it sounds great for its size.

NOT Durable Posted by: from: on The charging port breaks off and falls inside the speaker. There isn't even a way for tinkers to open the speaker without breaking the rest of it in order to fix it. They will not give you another one even if it's under warranty.

Great Speaker for Kayaking Posted by: from: on My spouse and I purchased this speaker to use at the pool, beach, and on our kayaking trips. We have gotten a lot of use out of it this Summer. It has survived being capsized and several Florida downpours. We love it.

Loud speaker Posted by: from: Raleigh, NC on One of the best bluetooth speakers that I have purchased. It really is waterproof! I know it was sort of risky for me to put it in water, but it really does play in water.

Big sound in a small box! Posted by: from: on I was looking for a portable speaker that would carry the sound over a fair distance outdoors that did not need to be plugged in. I spent 15 minutes testing all the different models available in Best Buy, taking turns turning each one's volume up all the way and then walking to the other side of the store to listen. This was without a doubt the best bang for buck given those parameters. The sound is good, and its volume level was better than most of the choices that were twice the price. Very pleased.
