First, the one star rating is selected only because procession is not allowed without inputting an overall rating. History: when I performed a search for outdoor Bluetooth speakers, these popped up and at a great, great price - (gift horse!). Given that they were under BestBuy's segment for Bluetooth speakers, were described with outstanding features and were highly reviewed/recommended, I jumped at ordering not one, but two, pair to stream music to my outdoor patio. NOW REALITY: To my excitement, got the notice of delivery the speakers arrived two days after my order; I flew home and tore open the box preparing to plug up and jam outdoors in the now comfortable Midwest weather and ---- they are WIRED speakers! Looked over the instructions to make sure I was not missing something, went back to the BB site, performed another search for Bluetooth speakers and up popped my speakers (now at regular price). I read the full description (which I should have done originally) and noticed they are not Bluetooth compatible -- why in the world would they place these in the Bluetooth speaker category? After calling BestBuy's number and being routed to GeekSquad by the frustrating automated "select..." voice, it not surprising the GeekSquad tech was useless in this instance as he attempted to recommend some overpriced alternatives. I was not having any of that. What I did was express my disappointment in the site search feature, the categorization of the speakers and asked him to somehow get word to the powers-that-be to get the speakers out of the search for Bluetooth speakers because it is deceiving and down-right WRONG! So, as this is truly not a review of the product, the speakers may be worthy as a "WIRED" choice -- and if you get them at the markdown I originally purchased them at, they will probably be great -- but I cannot recommend OR not recommend them as I did not test/use them in a wired-speaker capacity. However, as a Bluetooth choice, they suck big time and I cannot recommend them!
