    We gave this to our daughter and nephew for Christmas. Both of them opened it right up and began using it. Not only does it have GREAT sound, is it easy to use, and has a lot of great features that aren't available on other blue tooth speakers. We are especially glad that it floats because my nephew has a pool. Recently, my daughter's phone charging port has failed, but she can still use it because she can wirelessly charge it on the speaker. Great purchase for people of any age, but it is built strong and great for kids!

    For my Wife

    My Wife loves to listen to the music on her IPhone only one in the family and she has taken to the ALTEC Lansing speakers which stared with one of the smallest and Black Friday other buy. Well she has killed or worn out several speakers and this one replace one just like it. She needs two because when one loses power she want her music to continue. This one is actually two up from the one that died and one up from the other one she has. Her only complaint is the lowest and second to lowest volume levels are way too far apart.

    Average sounding speaker

    The speaker is being used for every type of music. The sound quality on lower-mid range volume is incredibly good for this price range and rivals an expensive speaker. The sound quality from mid-louder volume is tinny. If you only want to listen to music at lower levels you will enjoy a fully balanced sound, even heavier bass music. If you want to cut your music up for a favorite song or want to play louder music through the speaker to cover up beach noise or public sounds, you will be disappointed.

    Small Speaker That Packs a Punch!

    Just purchased this speaker as a Valentine's gift for my fianceè and she was blown away. I tested out the speaker before I bought it and compared to other speakers, this was very affordable and the sound was fantastic. Small but packs a punch! Totally worth the small amount of extra money for a 2 year warranty. This speaker can get through anything and can even be submerged under water!!! I couldn't be more happier with this purchase!

    So loud for a small device

    Best Buy had a deal for 50% off 3 days before Christmas and since my boyfriend had talked about wanting one, I went ahead and ordered it. He uses it when he has friends over and I use it when cleaning house. It's loud enough to hear through our apartment and small enough to place it anywhere we want. The only downside to this device that I've experienced is that I would experience a 1 second delay before the start of a few songs but the problem went away.

    Terrible Altec Customer Support/Service

    Had an issue w/ BT disconnecting. Customer service told me to 'discharge the battery' completely to 'reset' the system to 'fix' the BT connection issues. Completely bogus., as this did nothing at all to correct the problem. When I got around to calling back, they had record of my original call during warranty, but I called back after warranty expiration, so they declined to fix or make it right w/ me.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    I bought this item as a Christmas gift and it came super fast! The packing was good and the overall quality of the item was awesome! These speakers are little but have a big bark! The base is incredible. My boyfriend works in a noisy shop and it was a perfect gift for him to hear his music over the noise! It’s good for a tough environment because of the lifejacket. And it’s water proof and fairly easy to clean! Good product!

    Altec Lansing has always had great audio gear. These are simply amazing. LOTS of great sound. Very crisp, clear precise audio. Like being there live. Plus you can connect up to 10 of these to each other simultaneously. But just one fills the house with sound that even sounds good out to the garage. Get one ( or two ). You won't be disappointed. P.S. I initially bought one for my son. He _loves_ it.

    I drive a tractor Trailer that doesn't have a radio. I have tried other speakers in the past. There was always issues of size and/or quality. I like having the speaker within reach (on the dash). Either they're to large, but they have the sound. Or they set nicely on my dash but they don't have the sound. You get the best of both worlds with this Altec Lansing - Jolt Mini LifeJacket Portable Bluetooth Speaker.

    Works great with Spotify when taking a shower, working in the garden, washing the truck,etc. Stuck in the corner it even has some bass! I have a nicer stereo in the family room but for rocking outside it very nice! Great for camping also. I wanted the smaller one to make it handy and with a mount you can buy put one on your bicycle.

    I haven't tested the range on this yet, but the sound quality is solid. The volume level out in the open is I feel a little low, but in close quarters it is more than enough. Another feature yet to try is the water proof submerging. It looks like as long as you keep the covers over the ports, that will be another feature that makes this a solid purchase

    I love this speaker. It was super easy to set up streaming songs from my phone to it with Bluetooth. The sound quality is amazing ! I can't believe how good it sounds. It even has a lot of bass. This thing is so small too. I'm just blown away. Great price. I got it for a Christmas gift for my wife for $40 on sale. Normally $80. Totally worth it.

    I sent one of these to my deployed husband because there supposed to be dirt proof. I bought one for my self as well. They have some cool functions as far as charging a phone battery, dirt water and snow proof. The battery lasts well. I bought them on sale, I'm really happy with the price I paid and the quality of the speaker

    New to the brand, decided to give it a chance. Very happy with purchase, works well with iPhones, iPod Touch. Surprisingly loud for a small item. I walked several rooms away (about 30-40ft) and I could still hear it and control volume . Impressed!

    I bought this product because of it's good reviews and it's size. I have been really pleased with it. I use it at the golf course and am easily able to store it in my golf bag. The battery life is amazing. I have often played two rounds of golf (about 9 hours) and still have plenty of battery life left.

    Sound quality is great. The speaker is loud. Pairing different phones to it is less than great. You have to Forget the device from your phone to connect the other phone. For my usage I wish I had bought something else. I emailed altec and have had no reply for 2 or 3 weeks.

    This speaker was better than expected, I like the capability that you can skip a song from the speaker and the sound is good. The only thing I don't like is the greeting every time you turn on the speaker but I got use to it. It does have a tough case but I haven't drop it to test its durability.

    Has great sound and worth the price. The thing that bugs me is the volume control for android devices. You can use the mobile controls to turn the volume up or down. Also sometimes it doesnt sync right back to the device if you move away from. The sound and easy setup are their best features.

    This is a great product its sound is loud and it really shows that they build a great speaker, it's not very loud to surround a big room, but for being its size it can show how well its speaker is. This product is great nd it has Google assistant with it and you can pair other speakers with it !
