      I purchased this item, not just for myself, but also as a gift for another. If you'd rather not read the entire review, that should tell you all you need...go get one! I work as a dance instructor, and oftentimes I find myself in a location without an in-house sound system. In those situations, I've turned toward small, portable Bluetooth speaker systems. I've been intrigued about the viability of this Motomod in a smaller teaching environment and was eager to get my hands on one. I must say, the build quality is impressive. Battery life is as advertised, and while it does add a little extra weight to the device its hardly noticeable...especially as I find myself utilizing the built-in kickstand rather frequently. The sound quality is quite impressive for the size of this device. It has nice clarity and a surprising amount of bass. It didn't quite live up to my expectations for a group class, but in a more intimate venue, 1 on 1, or even for listening to audiobooks around the house, it works wonderfully. If there is anything I would like to see improved in yet another future iteration...I would like it to double as a standalone Bluetooth speaker, and not be tied directly to the Moto Z phone.

      I recently purchased the JBL SoundBoost 2 from Best Buy and my experience overall so far has been positive. For the convenience factor of instantly adding better sound output from my Moto Z smartphone, I can't complain. On one hand, it definitely improves the audio quality of music and videos with no apparent lag or sync issues like with some Bluetooth speakers. On the other hand, while the sound quality is definitely richer and more detailed than using my phone's speaker, it isn't quite as good as some Bluetooth speakers (although I'm comparing it to my Bose Soundlink Mini, one of the better, if not best, portable BT speakers on the market). All in all, I believe it sounds very good for a speaker mod and it is convenient to just snap it in place when needed. It does increase the bulkiness of my phone, but that's to be expected. The built-in stand is great for using it as a speaker phone. The portability factor can't be beat when compared to Bluetooth speakers. For most people, I think the sound quality will be more than satisfactory. Although there is an Alexa equipped speaker mod from a competitor that was recently introduced, not everyone will need or want that feature, and this is a less expensive alternative. I would recommend purchasing the JBL SoundBoost 2 if you need a convenient, portable, and relatively inexpensive quality speaker mod for your Moto Z or Moto Z Play.

      I know, I know...people told me to get out of the relationship but I couldn't. They didn't see what I did. The years we had spent together, growing, laughing, loving. Sure, the last three years had been tough but I believed it would get better. We had rough patches before (the post-retina years almost broke my bank account for starters). First, I said goodbye to the Pro, next the Pad, and last, the Phone. My iphone was the last connection we had. So, goodbye apple and hello Android, specifically Moto Z with Mods galore!!! I know it might be too soon to say I love you but I do, I love you... PS The soundboost rocks (one tip, could you make a case that might protect the phone and the mod?

      i have had several JBL products in the past and i knew that getting this sound boost speaker for the Motorola phone will make a huge difference in sound quality versus the built in phone speakers. Sound quality is excellent for the size of the speaker mod and seamless connectivity with the phone just plug and play. Built in kickstand on the back is very convenient when you want to stand the phone up while watching a movie. Only thing i would say it would have been nice if the speaker mod had a passive radiator or a small SUB built in that would really make this mod stand out even more and would make for a robust sound. overall great speaker mod which also allows you to use this as a speaker phone for phone calls.

      There are plenty of bluetooth speakers you can pair with your phone, but if you've purchased the Moto Z series for the mods, then you will likely want to get this mod. Provides significant difference in sound projection, what you would expect form a separate speaker, but sound is clear. Kickstand is nice feature to prop up phone, and turning it away provides better sound. Important to note, this mod has its own battery life and needs to be charged. Has about 10 hours of battery time; however, once the battery dips below 25%, it does periodically kick in an out.

      A speaker that sticks to your phone

      It doubles the weight of the phone and sounds like a cheap Bluetooth speaker. But JBL is the only one that does this, so it is the best. It is pretty tough. I have dropped it a few times and it hasn't broken, which is great. It doesn't even show signs of wear which I was concerned about. I was afraid the fabric would get dirty or tear and it still looks like new, so I can say that it seems to be made very well. I just do not like the sound quality. To me it sounds like a cheap Bluetooth speaker rather than a quality speaker.

      The speaker is very simple to start using. You just snap it on the back of your Moto Z2 Force and viola it begins projecting all sound through the speaker. No pairing necessary making it very user friendly. It is definitely louder than the phone speakers and let's me enjoy watching live tv in public without having to put my phone close to my face just to hear the sound or commentator's in a sports game. I highly recommend even for music the speaker sounds great. Good Job Moto & JBL!

      This amazing JBL sound system speaker connects in about 2 seconds via magnet to the back of the Moto Z Droid Force cell phone. Sound automatically passes through (no wires, no buttons to press). Nice deep bass and decent highs. Easier than connecting any bluetooth system. It also has a battery built in to power the unit and keep the cell phone alive. Also a built in stand so you can set it up on a counter.
