This is the best purchase I've made so far this year. At this price point you might expect something that is made poorly and feels cheesy. This unit conveys sheer quality the moment you pick it up. It's solid and a bit heavy so you know it's well constructed.
Sound: Wow, blew me out of the water. At the default volume level when you turn it on it's really loud and the sound quality is truly amazing. The bass actually packs a punch due to the sub built into the back of it. The mids and highs also sound crystal clear with no distortion at all.
I'm a UPS guy and people have been complimenting the sound coming out of my truck since I got it. My truck is loud and I have a loud fan running in the summer months, but I still hear it loud and clear over all the noise (and so do the people outside as I'm driving past). Two of my customers who have asked about it have since bought their own.
Battery life: Prior to this I had to buy rechargeable batteries for other devices and constantly pop them in and out for charging. With this boombox I simply plug it in when I get home and charge it overnight. At the default volume level (which rocks) this thing lasts my entire work day and I have it running for about 12 hours per day. If you crank the volume to full blast (not necessary) the charge will last about 8-10 hours. The nice thing about this unit is that you can easily connect it wirelessly via bluetooth or you can plug directly into it. I sometimes will stream Sirius satellite radio through my phone to it and at other times I will plug my ipod directly into it. Both sound incredible on the Sharkk boombox.
I've tried some comparable speakers before I bought this and the other options in this price range have much smaller speakers, no sub and lower power output. I recently hosted a graduation party at my home so I brought this out to the back yard and people kept saying how great it sounded. It was really nice to be able to play DJ wirelessly on my phone from across the yard and the thing went all day from around 11AM until about 1AM that night without quitting. I had to eventually plug my phone in, but the battery never ran out on the Sharkk.
I've bought multiple products from Sharkk over the years and their customer service is phenomenal. If anything isn't perfect they make it right. I highly recommend this.
Note: I purchased this item and was not compensated in any way to write this review.

SHARKK sent me this product for us to test out and try. I have had extensive testing since i have had this product.
Sound quality is great. it can work in an office setting or to fill a room (24x20) easily with great sound.
Bluetooth/Aux/Phone work great and extrememly easy to set up
Looks great and comes with a travel pack. looks and feels of higher quality than my Jawbone Jambox
Buttons illuminate at night and make it easy to change settings
Connection light is always on and blinking blue/green. It would be great if you could shut it off
On/Off always has a notification. it seems the sound cannot be adjusted when it turns on or off.
Cannot charge and play at the same time on Aux. it creates a muffled noise.
I would recommend this to anyone. I prefer it over my Jambox and with the price point it is easily dollar for dollar better.

The sound quality is great, I paired this with my Galaxy S4 phone and played music through it. I walked around my house and the distance the speaker can go from the phone was great. I also tried the voice control feature and I was amazed to see that I could send texts and make calls through my phone using the bluetooth speaker. This is definitely a great buy. The design itself is very clean and it is packaged very well. There is more weight to it than I expected but that's probably explained by the great quality.

Looked better on paper than it performed live
Posted by: Cnolan42 from: on
This was a Christmas gift for my 22yr old daughter I was looking to spend $50 to $100 range. Had good specs and battery life but max volume was not as much as others tested. Ordered this and 2 other brands but unfortunately the TDK a34 was similarly priced on sale with much fuller sound and did not distort at high volumes the way this one did. Ended up returning.

Excellent portable sound
Posted by: OverMachoGrande from: on
I really wasn't sure what to expect when I got this, but I was pleasantly surprised. The sound from the unit was far richer than I would've expected.
The packaging and contents are all well done, clearly targeting consumers used to Apple's clean and elegant packaging. Inside the box are the unit itself, an AC charging block (that looks like an iPad charging block), flat white micro USB charging cable, auxiliary 3.5mm audio cable, and carrying pouch.
The heft of the unit itself was reassuring, as was its quality fit and finish. After initially charging it for at least two hours, I turned on the unit, and there was a pleasant sound for turning the unit on and off.
I'm used to pairing most devices by holding the power button, but this unit requires you to hold the Play/Pause button (I had to look in the manual for that). No big deal. A female British voice says PEH-ring ("pairing" for us Yankees) to give aural indication of what's happening. I saw SHARKK BOOMBOX in my iPhone 5S's Bluetooth settings, and quickly added the unit. (The unit also allows for NFC pairing, but I don't have a phone which supports that.)
The unit also gives aural feedback for terminating a call and other operations, all with the same female British voice.
I first used it as a speakerphone while I was working from home, and as long as I stayed within a few feet of it (per the manual's recommendation), I could be heard just fine.
Audio was very rich--much richer than I'd expect from a unit of this size. I was able to play various genres of music without low- or high-end distortion.
The white color was a perfect fit for the kitchen, so it could sit on the island, or on any countertop and blend right in.
I was supplied an evaluation unit for this unbiased review, and I can say, unbiased, that I'm enjoying this boombox, and would recommend it to anyone who'd like rich sound in a design that will blend right in.

Great little speaker for the price
Posted by: UtherPup from: on
First off, I was given this product by SHARKK for review. I have actually used a few different bluetooth speakers over the years, and the best one that I had used to date was the UE Boom speaker, but that one is really expensive. This Sharkk speaker is really nice, and has some really good features that are missing on the UE Boom, and it is quite a bit cheaper to boot.
First off - the sound quality was good, not great. Though I really was expecting it to be worse, usually these little speakers are just not that good. The sound on the BoomBox speaker is pretty good, obviously a full system would have better sound, but considering you can take this one with you, there really is no room for complaining. I would say the UE Boom speaker is a little better for sound, but if I had to purchase one today, I'd probably go with the Sharkk due to the price difference.
I also have used this speaker for calls, and the sound was clear, and the people on the other end said it was easy to hear me. In all cases I had the speaker about a foot or two in front of me.
As for other features. The Android voice connection worked fine with my phone, and I was able to get it to respond like it was supposed to, you just have to hit the phone button the BoomBox, and away you go. You can send texts, make phone calls, or ask about businesses and get directions etc. That was pretty slick.
Another feature that is interesting is that it has a headphones port and an aux port. You can plug in external speakers to the headphone port, and then have it play through them and the BoomBox at the same time. That is meant for chaining BoomBoxes together, but it works with other speakers as well. By default it shuts off the sound coming out of the BoomBox speakers when you plug in a jack to the headphone port, but you just hold down the M button and it will start playing through both. You could also use this as a really big bluetooth receiver using the headphone port, not that I plan to, but you never know, it might end up being useful at some point.

Great portable speaker
Posted by: Drawnitsud from: on
I am a big fan of portable speakers and have had several before this Sharkk. I have to say, it is the best of them. It is inexpensive, has several features and- best of all- the sound is very good for its size. It truly brings the boom.
It comes with the speaker itself, a USB chord and charger, an auxiliary chord and a carrying bag to protect the speaker itself.
Connecting this speaker was incredibly easy and it connected quickly. Each time I power on the speaker, it has connected to my phone almost instantly. Love that.
The sound is crisp and clear. It starts to have minimal distortion only at the very loudest setting and only with complex music. Before anyone thinks this is a negative, I am actually happy with this as several other brands distort much earlier. The bass is surprisingly punchy for the size and the mids and treble are very clear. Color me impressed.
Lastly, I wanted to point out that I was provided this speaker for a fair and honest review. And while I very much like Sharkk as a company, I wouldn't hesitate to point out flaws. If you are hesitant about them because its a new company to you, don't be. As someone who has also bought several of their electronics before their customer service is very quick and genuine. They seem to actually care about their customers, not just the ratings that benefit them. So I recommend this BoomBox and Sharkk as a company overall.

Good value for small bluetooth speaker
Posted by: Nick from: on
I was provided with a free copy of this item for testing and my fair and honest evaluation
Pairing via bluetooth, NFC, and aux. All flawless, quick and easy. The range on the BT is around 30 ft maybe 40ft. Battery thus far is good, can charge and play at the same time. Now the speaker itself, measuring at 7(1/2)x 2(1/2)x 2(7/8), feels solid, the base has rubber ends that keep it from sliding. The sound that this produces is impressive for its small size. As travel BT speakers go the sound clarity and volume is on par with the high end side. Keep in mind this cannot be compared to a home stereo or large sound appliances.
Nothing is negative enough to warrant not purchasing this item. However a few minor gripes are the on and off sounds the speaker makes. Strikes me as unnecessary and annoying. And the AC charger makes a high pitched buzzing while charging. The noise is only noticeable in a quiet room.
A good buy for travel bluetooth speaker, worth getting!

Best Bluetooth spearker I've owned
Posted by: Rick from: on
I sit in my backyard and listen to audio books, this speaker has a great sound, I can pause the book or rewind it if I missed something and it goes days without re-charging it.
It also pairs with my iPhone so I can take calls without touching my phone.
Buy one and try it for yourself, I also use it to pair with my TV .
