      Speaker and Support problems

      I bought two and they sound nice, but one has a static sound, when nothing is being played. Also, they are not easy to pair, at all and do not stay paired. That is the main reason that I upgraded, from the first Boom jackets, to these. I contacted Altec Lansing support and even gave them video evidence, but they still have not replied, with a solution, after weeks. I don't think they care about helping customers. After getting lucky, on pairing the two, they both play, but if you move one, not too far away, they become unpaired. The distance that I moved them apart from each other was well within the working distance. I was told, by support, to let the batteries run down all the way, recharge them and then they should stay paired, when moving them apart. I still have problems, with them. Maybe, after the batteries die, again, they will get even better. I don't know. Though, it will take a while for me to find out, because the batteries seem to last a very long time. Also, at one point, out of nowhere, I heard one speaker start to make a buzzing noise. I had to turn it off and pair it up, again. If you do want the Boom jackets, just get one and you will have 50% of the problem or, hopefully, get lucky and have no problems. They are rugged looking. I don't know how well they do, in the water, though. Fix the pairing issues, the static sound, and the random bussing noise and they get five stars. Giving two stars is beig generous. I could give one, by itself, four or five stars, maybe, but the pairing feature means that if they don't work together, they don't work 100%, correctly. It's almost summer and I want to get out and use them, TOGETHER. Right now, they defeat their own purpose.

      No, I would not recommend this to a friend

      It's ok. Not very loud.

      I own many Bluetooth speakers. THE GOOD: - Water proof! (Supposedly). - Decent sound (not great). - "Everything proof." - Small enough to go places. - Great battery life! THE BAD: - Too expensive for what it is. (My biggest complaint). - Not loud enough for the amount of dough.(If I had not got this on a black Friday sale I would definitely return it). - Doesn't stay on so you can easily reconnect. Have to re-power it Everytime you disconnect for a few minutes. - The plugin for the power cord is in an awkward spot. I am afraid it is going to get damaged. - Not the new "C" micro USB charger. If you have started switching over your devices to the new style USB chargers, you will still need to keep an old one (hopelessly) lying around. - Has a very short range compared to other devices. Bottom line, this is a descent speaker, but for the same dough you can get a WAAY better speaker. In sound quality, it compares to the cheaper speakers I own. This is a 3 star product. I would NOT recommend this to a friend.

      Top-notch Bluetooth speaker

      This is my second Altec Lansing product, an upgrade from the Mini Life Jacket, which is great for its size. The 50-hour battery life sold me on the BoomJacket II. I have yet to run it down with daily use. Really sweet sound, with a noticeable improvement in bass response over the original BoomJacket released more than a year ago. And this model is powerful. I paired it with my phone, cued up some Zeppelin and goosed the volume higher and higher and higher until I was laughing in delight. No clipping, no distortion, just a fine, clean sound. This speaker can knock monkeys out of trees. Definitely going to the beach with me. I also like the rugged design. Unlike a lot of Bluetooth speakers, this one doesn't look or feel dainty. It also has a pairing feature that lets you connect two BoomJackets for those times when you really want to make a racket -- and why wouldn't you?

      Im a Big Fan of Altec Lansing

      Eric

      Ever since i bought my mini lifejacket 2 a couple years ago ive Really been a big fan of Altec Lansing and these Super Durable, Ultra Waterproof speakers. Ive literally played catch with my mini lifejacket 2 in the middle of lake Erie (well not literally the middle but in atleast 10 feet of water) with the speaker playing the whole time, and no need to worry about it dropping out of the boat. It Floats! With being so satisfied with the Lifejacket 2 i decided to upgrade to the BoomJacket 2 while they are on sale this year and id say its about twice as loud, the difference between the two is that the Boomjacket 2 has speakers on both sides of it, as the Lifejacket 2 has forward facing speakers. Having speakers on both sides really makes it easy for the Boomjacket 2 to fill a large room with sound. i would definitely recommend both of them, it just matters how much sound you want to broadcast. I feel like Altec Lansing is brand you can trust and when these speakers go on sale i would highly recommend picking one up.

      Had just acquired an audible book for our family to listen to during a long, 8-hour drive to NC this past holiday weekend. While en route we realized that with full blast air conditioning and the background high speed noise, there was NO way to do this by using the iphone's inadequate speaker - - and our car was not bluetooth enabled. We exited the interstate, found the nearest Best Buy, and purchased this device. Literally within 20 minutes we were back on the interstate listening to our fabulous book in hi fidelity sound and at a volume that worked really easy, especially given all the constraints. . . and tho we were a bit hesitant about the "rubberish" look and composition of the speaker case, surprisingly, it's so sturdy and worked quite well in terms of sitting up on our dash without slipping and sliding as were 'easing on down the road' - Life doesn't get much better than that!! Since then have using it all over the house and absolutely love this device. Wish we had thought to get this a long time ago!

      Top dollar, false quality

      Was moderately impressed the first few months. Mainly used to speaker on bike rides or in the garage. Never tested everything proof claims or got it wet. GOOD: Battery lasts awhile, but no way to tell battery life. BAD: -Not terribly loud -Within a few months charging port / cord had to be propped in the right way to charge -6 months in it just started shutting off at 3/4, then 1/2 volume. Got a manufacturer replacement, new in box. At which point I would’ve considered a 3 Star review The new speaker was used two times and charged once before refusing to charge or turn on at all. Don’t even feel like going through the process again when I can go to Walmart and get similar “quality” for a 30-50$.

      Bought this solely to attach to the cross member inside my side-by-side. Works great but I need another one because it's perfect by the pool and to take camping. Left it out in a rain storm and it fired right up the next day with no problems. You don't need your phone to scroll thru your playlist, the buttons on the device are already setup to do that remotely. Also charged my iPad with this thing while hiking in Colorado. The folks who made this thought of almost everything, just wish the charge cord used the same as the iPhone. Other than that I have yet to find a fault. Bought this for myself for Father's Day. Asking Santa for a second one. Would have given it 4.5 stars but that wasn't an option. A little more bass would have earned it a five star review.
