    Another glitchy Altec Lansing speaker. Don't buy 2

    First off, I've had several Altec Lansing speakers over the past few years and most have been anywhere from flawed to junk. Xpedition 4 would shut itself off all the time. Returned it and got another one, same deal. Street Shock speaker wouldn't turn on when first switched on, then would come on like 10 minutes later. After a while it just pops when turned on and never actually turned on. Altec Lansing just makes very low quality products, but tries to charge premium prices. After this HydraMini issue, I believe I'm done giving Altec Lansing more chances to prove themselves. They just make lousy Bluetooth speakers. The issue with the HydraMini is with the TWS linking using two speakers. One speaker works fine by itself. Sure, battery life is really bad, particularly with lights on. Not much bass from this speaker, but then again it is small and you really shouldn't expect something this size to have much bass. It's when you link two speakers together that the real problem arises. Linking two Hydramini speakers was simple enough using the steps instructed. Problem is after a little while playing they will start to get out of sync and sound like an echo. After it gets worse the speakers will like briefly pause, then are back in sync. Or sometimes the sound will just start cutting out for a little bit, then will quickly pause and then be back to normal. And sometimes they will just do a quick pause while playing for no apparent reason. I switched to use the blue speaker as the main speaker to see if it would make any difference compared to when I had the black speakers as the primary speaker, but still the same issue. Sorry, but this is the last straw for Altec Lansing. I've given this company more chances than they deserve to prove they have changed, but they haven't. Bye, Felicia.

    I have loved Altec Lansing speakers since in the 70s. I bought their system back then. I have always felt they were the best for my taste. I had tried the smaller mini, and loved the sound. I decided to go to the next level, this time. Loved it! So much I bought my two best friends one to listen to music as they walked at the park. You guys still have it as far as I am concerned.

    Works well but flashing light annoying

    The speaker works well and seems to last pretty long. My only gripe is that when you turn it on there are two flashing white lights on either end and so you have to toggle the selection button to get something else as they are annoying. Otherwise, I thought it was a good choice for a small external speaker to play Bluetooth music or audiobooks from my phone.

    I had my intial doubts about the speaker's sound quality and pricing. But after owning it for a few weeks. I can say that it was a good purchase. It does the job when I wanna play music from my phone while in the shower or cleaning my room.

    I use this to listen to podcasts while in the shower, the clip allows me to hang it on the door hinge so I don't have to risk damaging it in the water. Has fell a few times from about 6-7 feet and still works perfect!

    First of 2 versions of this speaker I bought. Bought both on clearance and there is nothing to be disappointed about. Altec is a good brand and for the money this speaker does what I need to listen to music while working around the house, traveling or sitting outside.

    The speaker isn’t amazing as the bass quality is a little blotchy, but has great clarity! it’s a definite bargain for the promo price I bought it for which was $20. Highly recommend for a casual speaker for a small intimate setting :)
