    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

    Good sounding speaker with great battery life

    Bought this speaker (NS-SPBTBRICK2) black model on sale for it's style and long battery life. The design is good in that the front panel is angled up at about 40 degrees. This directs the sound up into the room. From the photo, the speaker appears as a thin oval shape, but was pleasantly surprised to see that it's more triangular in depth with a flat 1 inch back. Startup and Bluetooth connection were flawless. Appreciated the four quiet beeps on startup and shutdown instead of a loud tone or voice. On to the sound; the mids and highs are great, perhaps a bit bright. The bass at first seemed a bit weak, but using the speaker to break it in, the bass improved. Then I set the speaker on it's back so that it pointed straight up. This gives the best sound as it tames the highs and balances the bass better. As an added bonus, this produces omnidirectional sound throughout the room, eliminating the need to stay in the "sweet spot". I have been listening to it this way as I am writing this review. Very impressed with this speaker and it would be a good buy even at full price.

    first of all I haven't used high end bluetooth speakers so I don't know how much better sound they produce. This, brick 2, was $20 on bestbuy on sale and I wasn't expecting anything good. Guess I was wrong. This is just one speaker and producing very good sound both for songs and vocals. I also bought lagitech G933 $100 bluetooth over the head headphone which is fine with some issues. This speaker in this price range could be the best available product. Bluethooth conectivity is flawless. one very big difference compare to all other products of same category is battery life. As per manufacturer it may give you 40 hrs battery life which is matchless. Even with heavy load if it gives you half, still its matchless. I highly recommend this speaker. Moreover volume is pretty high and I wasn't expecting it at all. I am using it with my desktop for now.

    This is a very good speaker. It sounds good and is fairly loud although it does not have thumping bass. Battery life is unreal. One of the longest lasting that I am aware of at around 40 hours and you can charge devices with it as well. Don't expect sound like the more expensive speakers. I personally would not pay full price but I got it at half price. Overall a very solid speaker.

    Great Portable Bluetooth Speaker for the Price

    Not the best Sound, but great battery life. Connects easy and great overall value for the price. I also own the much more expensive JBL and Bose. While they sounds much better, this is for sure a better bang for the buck. If you are looking for decent sounding music for the best Value with the longest battery life, this is the way to go.

    My Insignia Brick 2 Portable Bluetooth Speaker is great! Sound is crisp and clear; volume is more than sufficient; and the charge lasts a long time. Price was great and item was received very quickly.

    Bought this unit for a friend of mine and it is quite loud and easy to use. Nothing like a bluetooth speaker for double the price but you get what you pay for and it is plenty loud enough to hear out on the patio for him or just to get a step up on his iPad built in speaker. Only thing that would be nice is your phone or iPad volume controls would work. Once connected, you have to use the buttons on the speaker.

    Great speakers, extremely long battery life, easy to use, great sound, and inexpensive. I bought one for $43, then they went on sale and I bought 2 more. I don't know if I need 3 of these speakers, but they are so inexpensive and of great quality I bought them. I plan to use these outside and stream music from my computer and/or Ipod to them.

    Got this to use at work. Love that the volume is lot enough to hear the music in our walk in cooler so we an rock out while we stock. Which helps us ignore how cold it is in there. Also like that it has a long battery life and can charge my phone with it

    Sound is a bit tiny, but it was a pretty inexpensive blue tooth speaker. I got this for camping, and because it has a larger battery that can be used to charge my phone or other peripherals. Easy to use and set up. As noted, this does not have a big, booming sound. But it is more than adequate for what it cost.

    Wasn't looking for another wireless speaker but when I saw this on clearance, it couldn't pass it up. Perfect size and good sound for the price. Battery life is decent and it charges very quick.

    For the low price, I wasn't expecting such a great sound! This speaker packs a good sound, easily pairs to all my devices and has a power-out for charging a phone. Additionally, it's rated as water resistant and worked perfectly during a sudden rainstorm.

    This is just an excellent Bluetooth speaker. The sound quality is excellent. The greatest thing about this speaker (besides the amazingly low price) is that you get so many hours of usage on a charge. I just LOVE this speaker!

    Superb speaker for the price. It sounds great, and the battery life is unreal. The fact that it also doubles as a battery bank is extremely convenient. The only issue I have with it is the material.Being a soft plastic, It attracts fingerprints and shows scratches very easily. This is a very small quirk though, and I still believe for the price this is a 5 star speaker. Definitely Recommend.

    Needing a remote speaker I looked at all the brand name models. Then I found this one for a fraction of the price and the same high quality sound. Long battery life and no hassle connectivity to my phone.

    If you want power and quality incluiding a price this is the best speaker. And the best is the battery time up to 36 hrs of sound.

    I've had several blur tooth speakers that didn't last or the speaker quality was poor. I bought this for the pool area and it's been perfect. Great sound and blue tooth reach. Very satisfied with my purchase
