    Pleasantly Surprised

    I've been wanting a replacement bluetooth speaker for one of my ancient ones that finally bit the dust but had been hem hawing around about it. One day while at the store I needed a few more dollars to spend to get the special financing deal taking place so I read some different reviews and looked at all the bluetooth speakers on the shelf and decided to grab this one since it is reasonably priced. I did not have any kind of expectations for sound quality, decibel range, or connectivity. When I powered it on the first time it took roughly 10 seconds to pair it with my phone. When I played music through it I was very pleasantly surprised. It was very loud and the sound was clear. Even with the volume on my phone full blast there is minimal distortion. Keep in mind, this is a teeny weeny speaker and does not reproduce bass at an audible or feelable level. It only does the main highs and some mids. It is crisp and clear and the lighting options are pretty awesome too. It automatically reconnects to my phone as soon as I power it on and my phone shows its battery life along with the phone battery in the widgets window on my iPhone. Another thing I like that my previous speakers had and this one doesn't is a separate volume control. It plays based on the volume of the phone so you don't have to get a balance going between the two of them. All in all I am extremely satisfied with this purchase and will likely grab another one before long so I can have one at work and home.

    I bought this speaker on a whim because I had some Best Buy points to use and needed a blue tooth speaker. I liked that it advertised changing colors on the speaker and claimed to have good sound quality so I thought I'd give it a shot. I was very happily surprised it held true to it's claim! The colors are soothing and nice, they change slowly or you can keep it on one color. I've also used the speaker as a nightlight for my children who like to watch it change color as they fall asleep; with or without sound. The sound quality is perfect and clear. I've had no complaints with anything regarding this speaker. It's good quality material, exhibits nice sound, has long charge life, and nice colors. Would purchase again!

    Missing one MAJOR standard function! Returned it!

    When I hooked it up to my Chromebook the level of the volume wasn't impressive. Therefore it was used for only about 1 hour. I bought it because my Chromebook has a horrible speaker. The bluetooth speaker didn't have any volume control, therefore, it was the same level of volume that my Chromebook had. I would have thought that because it is a speaker, volume would be a standard function. Even older bluetooth speakers had volume. Useless even with the Chromebook volume at the highest level. Disappointing for a $30 bluetooth speaker. I returned it and went to a discount dept. store and bought another model from the same manufacturer as this one for half the price (even has the cool lights) and LOVE it.

      In most cases, volume controls on the speaker are simply redundant because the audio source has it's own controls, but in this case where the source has insufficient volume, it could make a difference. iHome

    Decent Intermediary Speaker

    Bluetooth functions fairly well on this speaker. The audio quality isn't fantastic, but it's pretty par for it's price range. I prefer to use without lights for less battery usage, but it's a nice ambient party feature. Worth the price, but I would look into investing in a slightly higher price range if you're looking to get audio quality comparable to wired or full range speakers. You can still tell it's a small-sized portable speaker when listening to music. Audiobooks/podcasts are fine, provided you're not in too noisy of an environment. Though even in a wind tunnel next to the ocean, I could hear podcasts clearly, so that's a plus!

    Cool Colored Sound

    Just wanted a new small bluetooth speaker for my home desktop pc and found this while at a local store. I was pleasantly surprised by how by cool it looks. The sound is very good for a small speaker. The colors fade and change while it is on and you can push the switch so the colors change with the beat if you are playing music. You can also turn the light off and just use the speaker as well. Had some friends over and everyone loved it and wanted to get one. Easy to charge on a pc usb port and holds a charge very well. Easy to transport and take traveling as well since it is small. Great value for the price. Love it!

    I bought this product after seeing a lot of positive comments. When I got it, I didn’t expect it to be that small but the sound was great and loud for its size. It’s very easy to connect. The only I didn’t like is that it doesn’t really alert me when it’s low in battery. So I would just experience it stop working when the Battery is out. But overall, a good speaker for its price.

    You get more than you pay for. For the low price I was expecting the sound quality to be mediocre but it's super clear. I use it at work and get a lot of compliments on how cute the light is (it changes colors and you can also turn it off). You can use it as a night light as well. Lasts pretty long and the Bluetooth signal reaches pretty far. Only down side is the charging cord is pretty short but you can buy a longer one.

      We see the 2 watts of audio power fooled you. We apologize for the minor inconvenience due to the length of the cord. We will pass this information along to the design team. Thank you for taking time to review our product. iHome

    I bought a echo dot and speaker. I looked at all the speaker they had and I listen to most of them. Most of them were priced to high and the other ones didn't sound to good. IHOME IBT68 BLUETOOTH SPEAKER sounded just as good and better then the other. The price was a lot cheaper then the other expensive speakers. I can take it to room to room or trun it up and it still sounds good and the light show is cool too
