Perfect for casual use Posted by: from: New Jersey on I bought this unit to replace an old set of powered computer speakers in my workshop that I would connect my iPhone 5c to so I would have music to listen to while I worked. Radio reception in the workshop was bad, and if I ran any battery chargers would be non-existent. I wanted to replace the computer speakers with something that took up less space, and would allow me keep my phone in my pocket rather than exposed on a workbench where it could be knocked off and possibly damaged, or just left behind when I decided to leave the area. I choose these speakers based on price and power output. On both counts this speaker does well. The volume more than fills my work area. If you are going to use this speaker outdoors, keep in mind the volume is probably not going to do well past 10-15 feet, but if you can keep this product that close, it will suffice on an occasional use basis. The last time I used this product outdoors, I did have it running off the battery, which was still going strong after the three hours I was using it. Sound quality is good. Like most Bluetooth connected products though, the sound quality will be better when using the supplied audio cable. I cannot address the speakerphone feature of this product as I have not used it. It does bind quite easily, and have yet not found the need to read the instruction booklet that came with it, the process is so simple. ... Power the unit on, press the "bind" button, and you are done!

LOUD! Some distortion at full volume. Bass is fine Posted by: from: Los Angeles, CA on Picked this up when it was 49.99 as one of Best Buy's Deals of the day. I've been looking for a good BT speaker and I'm a bit of a speaker/headphone -phile. The sound quality is definitely on the high side of speakers of this size and caliber. Especially for the price. It gets much louder than the Jambox but it feels "bigger" because it is more like a rectangle log than a block like those speakers. It's certainly not BIG but it was actually bigger than I expected after reading reviews saying it was small... Bass is neutral and even as a speaker "should" be but these days people are all about vibrating everything around them when they listen to music. This won't do that. But turned all the way up the bass was able to shake the speaker enough to move it around on the table I had it on. It moved a good 2 inches over a 15 minute span of music. At the price I got it at it is more than a steal and even for $100 it is well worth it over anything else in the price range. It is solidly built and does not feel cheap at all despite being a bit boring looking. It also is the only portable BT speaker I know of (there might be more of them) that has an easy to find and changeable battery. If you are buying a speaker for looks this one isn't it. But for pure sound at a good price. I'd say give it a go!

Go for it! Posted by: from: Central Iowa on I bought this with a lot of anticipation. It was very inexpensive ($49) so was not expecting much. My unit's volume is better than good. Wow it will fill a very large room. It does not have a lot of bass but I bought it knowing this. I have a full surrond sound system for thumping bass. I would reccomend this to anyone who wants quick sound around the house, garage or outside. I love it!

Look promising, but fell short Posted by: from: lake forest, ca on This unit had some decent reviews and was on sale, so i gave it a go. Initial set up was easy. Sound quality was OK for the size of the unit, but i literally used it maybe 5 times before it died. Thankfully BB let me return for store credit. If you are looking for something just to get you by with portable sound this might work for you, but otherwise I'd save my $. I guess i have better sound quality tastes, this unit wasn't loud enough and had little bass. Don't be too tempted by the price...

2 Thumbs up!! Posted by: from: Mesa, Az on im pretty happy with this product.. alot of small bluetooth speakers sound muffled and distorted.. this speaker with the right settings on your phone/mp3 eq settings can sound great. its loud and clean but not much bass. there is a little bass that add to a great sounding speaker..no problem connecting to gs3 phone..but it took awhile to connect to my ipad..once connected time to rock out.. i use at work, (construction) and it gets loud enough for a good size room. for its size it produces louder clear sound then expected.. but when turn all the way it can get distorted but just adjust you eq setting on your mp3 and you'll be set..

Oldaudiophile Posted by: from: New London, CT on I purchased the Rocksteady XS 1.5 speaker from Bestbuy about two months ago and was so impressed with it that I have given it my highest recommendation and decided to write a review. Prior to purchasing this speaker I auditioned every wireless bluetooth speaker that I could find on display. In the price range there is no equal to this speaker. The sound is clearer and more precise than many higher prices speakers, such as the Bose and Jawbones. If you want to spend twice the money, the Beats Pill provides more bass, but I am not sure it is more accurate sound. The speaker can produce plenty of volume with little distortion. Bass performance is the one area where some people may not be satisfied with this speaker. If you like exagerated bass you probably should not be looking at this unit as the bass is more natural. Relative to connectivity, my unit connects to my iphone, ipad and ipod easily and with good range (at least 20 feet). As stated by other reviewers, read the instructions for initial paring to avoid being distressed by what seems like a delay. After initial paring the speaker pares very rapidly. Relative to battery life, on my unit the battery life is excellent. At moderate volume levels it plays for at least 10 hours as advertised, and I have had no problems with the battery holding change for 10 days or more provided the unit is turned off. I have not used the phone feature much, but it works as specified. Overall this is a great battery operated bluetooth speaker.

Excellent portable bluetooth speaker, Nice price! Posted by: from: Chicago, IL on I purchased the Rocksteady XS through one of BestBuy's one day online specials for $59.99. I read other reviews online comparing the sound quality to Bose and JBL. The reviews are dead on! This is an excellent portable bluetooth speaker. Easy to use.I love the features. Built in mic, able to control my music through the Rocksteady XS.
