    Get a Brick 2 or two (or maybe even three)!

    I use these smaller Bluetooth speakers for a variety of things, and I've several different models (and multiples of several models). I saw the Insignia Brick 2 as a Best Buy Deal of the Day item and figured it wouldn't hurt to buy it and try it out for the price. Thanks to Best Buy's return policy, I could take it back if I didn't like it. Within its sale price range it had a few features that set it apart from similar Bluetooth speakers I've in the same price range (at their regular price). The first is the rugged and waterproof design. I doubt I would ever actually "need" the waterproofing, but it's great to have in the price range. The rugged design is always going to be a plus, and once again it's nice to have something extra like this in a price range way below its normal price. The overall design is smooth and sleek, and the ability to position it horizontally or vertically is nice. One thing about the design that isn't "ideal" to me is the placement of the buttons on the back of the unit. This means it'sn't going to be as easy to adjust the volume or access the other buttons while listening to the speaker because you'll have to turn it around to get to the buttons as you'll likely have the front of the speaker facing toward you to get the best sound. Another thing that stood out is the long battery life. All the aforementioned stuff is fine and dandy, but how does the thing actually sound. Well, I tried it out today, and it absolutely blows away the other Bluetooth speakers I've been using! This makes sense because the Brick 2's normal price is much higher than the normal price of the other Bluetooth speakers I've been using. The sound is very full and deep. So far I've listened to an Audio Bible cd (connected to an Insignia portable cd player combined with a Bluetooth receiver/transmitter) and an mp3 from a computer using the Bluetooth transmitter. It also sounds really good using the 3.5mm audio cable too. To get the Brick 2's quality (build, sound, etc.) on sale for the lower price range is a no-brainer, Thankfully the Brick 2's are on sale again, so I'm going to grab at least one more. Here's another added bonus. Insignia is Best Buy's store brand, and all Insignia products manufacturer's warranties can be honored in-store at any Best Buy (as long as you can show proof that you purchased it from Best Buy and within the warranty period). The Brick 2 comes with a 1-year warranty, so I can take it back to any Best Buy to exchange it for a new one if there's any problems within a year of the purchase. Go ahead and get a Brick 2 or two (or maybe even three). I think you'll be glad you did. Hope this helps. Thanks. Matthew 7:12

    I have had this unit now for over 3 weeks, using it 4 to 6 hours a day, 5 days a week and it still has over 25% battery life remaining. the sound is good, not stellar, but is loud enough to hear over the engine noise in my delivery truck, something I had issues with the Jawbone Mini Jambox it replaced. The Bluetooth connection with my iPhone XS is rock solid, connects fast and stays connected even when venturing out to deliver packages. My only complaint is the lack of local controls for play/pause and track skip. Only volume controls and a "phone" button that, on the iPhone, just activates Siri are present on the unit and they are on the back, difficult to use without picking the unit up and looking at it. Overall it's a really good speaker.

    Great battery life, good sound, only thing I don't like is buttons being in an awkward spot.
