      Diamond in the Rough

      Being a Best Buy Employee I get the luxury of playing with the product. When my EcoXgear finally kicked the bucket, I was looking for a rugged Bluetooth speaker. I work in car audio, I am no audiophile, but I appreciate good sounding music. The biggest problem I have found with most Bluetooth speakers is that they sound "muddy" (like the music is underwater or the speaker is playing with a pillow over it). I have to have music while doing house work, doing outside work, or just relaxing on the deck. WITH PRICE BEING A FACTOR, I work for best buy, I cant just whip out $300 for a new Bluetooth speaker (plus I think the wife would make me sleep on the couch) I tried the JBL's first. Given the amount of happy reviews, I had to give them a try. The Flip 4 ahhhh, it was ok very muddy. Music had no depth. Charge 3 was an improvement, not to mention a usb to charge things was a cool idea. Jbl Extreme is awesome. Great sound, loud, decent bass BUT $300. Moved to the Bose. the soundlink mini is a good speaker, but lack volume and the upper range I wanted. The Revolve (pear shaped one) by far hands down the best Bluetooth speaker we carry. AMAZING 360 deg SOUND! Again, $300. No bueno. So, I tried a few others, not being impressed. I thought I was stuck playing big money for good sound. Then, I ran across this and its excellent reviews. Ihome vs Bose and JBL, I thought it wouldn't hold a candle to them. WRONG! I was blown away from the sound coming out of this thing at this price point. I can firmly that this $70 speaker sounds better then anything I tested in the $200 and below range. Now, it does NOT have a cool USB but I can live with out it. Listen, don't expect this thing to beat out the Bose revolve for sound or the JBL Extreme in volume (it gives it a run in the bass dept.). But this little guy is great! I tested all the speakers on 3 songs. Stapleton- Tennessee Whiskey, Wicked- Defying Gravity, ZZ Ward- Cryin' Wolf. This little guy has GREAT highs (which seem to be missing in most speakers), good mid bass for male vocals, and pleasantly surprising bass (especially if you put it in a corner or cabinet). It has a passive radiator speaker off the rear that helps immensely with the bass. Now its not SUPER loud but, its louder then my EcoXgear. It easily fills a room, and is loud enough to hear outside. Whats also great is with the great treble, it can be played at lower volumes for back round noise and still be clearly heard. Its a solid ABS construction with rubber coating. Its weighty for its size, but not too cumbersome. It does have LED lighting around the outside of speaker grille, but it can be turned off. Now, I am using iOS 11 beta 3 on my 7+ and it connects and works flawlessly. If i had to give a real life distance test I would say you can walk 20ft away in the house before it cuts out or two floors. I have not tested it in water, while it says water proof I am not about to throw it in my pool. I like water proof stuff so I can put it on the edge of the pool and know its safe. I hope this long, long, long, review helps. If your anything like me, your always looking for that diamond in the rough.

      This unit leaves a lot to be desired. It is not really loud enough for outdoor use, unless you’re within 10 feet or so of the unit. The speaker also blows very easily with limited use, and will never sound as good as it does on Day 1. It’s not waterproof as advertised either, let alone water resistant. Even a light sprinkle was enough to shut down the unit within a few seconds. Does not sound nearly as good as a JBl flip in the same price range.

        We apologize for your experience. The iBT372 has 10 watts of audio output power. The iBT372 is waterproof. If the waterproof cover is not sealed, the unit will not withstand moisture. The sister product iBT374 has 20 watts of audio output power and can be connected to another iBT374 for true stereo sound. For additional information, our Support Team is available at 1-800-288-2792.

      We needed one for the hot tub area. The sound is generous, and clear enough to hear over the loud jets. It is wireless Bluetooth, and can be controlled from the waterproof buttons on the unit, or from a tablet, phone or computer. Although it is compact, it’s hard to tip over or accidentally slide it off a shelf. The low rectangular shape and wide base create balance. Some weight is added with rubberized edges and a sturdy case.

      I bought this product mainly to use with my laptop and other Bluetooth devices. The sound quality is great for listening to music, watching Netflix shows, sports events and other streamed TV shows. I like that you can use it while it is charging via the USB. It will announce 'Connected' when you power it up and it connects to a device. The battery charge lasts a long time, I've never actually had it run out even after using it several hours at max volume.

      The Ihome Weather Tough 4 is exactly what I needed as a graduation gift. Compared to other brands, this one for the budget well. The sound quality is similar and for a fraction of the price. The look of the speaker feels very rugged yet elegant. I like the lighting that goes with the music. It provides just enough vibe to enjoy and liven up the mood without being overly distracting!

      I use this speaker inside the trailer when I deliver product and it can withstand cold temperatures for sure since it is inside a cooler all day. Sounds good and not too loud so I can't get in trouble for blaring music. Only dropped it a couple times but still works fine. Not trying to test out the water proof part but it's been a great buy so far

      Great product to listen to music or listen to sports commentary, etc. indoors without disturbing others, very portable, or while hanging out outdoors by the poolside (good thing it is water resistant to splashes, etc) or while BBQing with friends. Battery lasts long and charges pretty fast. Got to give it that it sounds pretty for its size.
