The rings that are used to change the volume are really bad. I got it right out off the box and it doesn't even work properly (or at all). I just have to adjust the sound from my computer which can be a pain. I can't really adjust the sound from the speaker itself, but I guess you get what you pay for. I don't plan to return it because I just want a basic speaker (which is what it is) for listening to music when I'm bored. It also has a nice elegent look to which I also adore and another reason why I'm going to keep it. I wouldn't even recommend buying it online, because the shipping just pushed it for what it isn't worth.
