    The Rise After the Fall

    First two times using the speaker were great, 0 complaints. During my third use my girlfriend dropped it and it feel off my balcony and proceeded to fall a total of 11 stories. That’s 110 feet for those who don’t know. It feel in a grassy by the pool which was closed till morning. The next morning I walked up to it to find it soaking wet but intact. The speaker works just fine and only a minor scratch on the back. I highly recommend this speaker and now all insignia products.

    Decent sound, little to no bass though...

    Posted .

    The Insignia Sonic portable Bluetooth speaker is compact and easy to toss in a bag to carry around. The design is a bit boring with a black matte back and black mesh fabric type of material. I wasn’t impressed with the build quality and it appears that the fabric mesh is not put on straight, I don’t know if that is the design or not, but it does look like it is put on crooked. The speaker is water resistant and rated at IPX5, which means that it will be protected from water projected from a nozzle. In the packaging you get a small USB type A to mini cable for charging and it took me about 4 hours to fully charge mine using a 3.2Amp charger that is built into my electrical outlet (Insignia brand as well). The sound quality is decent, and it does not have very much bass to it and when you crank it up the sound does get distorted. Pairing it with my Galaxy Note10+ was easy and straight forward using Bluetooth, there is no NFC option that you see on many devices these days. The battery life so far has been good and I do feel that it will last close to the rated 40 hours they the manufacturer claims. Overall this is a decent speaker for the price and you really shouldn’t expect too much from it. If this is your first BT speaker, then you might enjoy it, but if you have some other high end (more expensive) speakers, you will be disappointed. Pros: Cost Ease of pairing (no NFC though) Simple to use Battery life Cons: Lack of bass Build quality Distortion at high volume

    Works great, but....

    I actually give it 4.5 stars. It works great, but the only issue I have is the you can't see the buttons on the top of the speaker if you're in a lower light setting. You have to treat the buttons like brail. Otherwise, it sounds good and is easy to connect. It also definitely has good volume in case you need it to be louder. Overall, I'm happy with it.

    Good Bluetooth Speaker

    Posted .

    The Insignia Sonic Portable Speaker, is a lightweight, water resistant IPX5 Bluetooth speaker. The setup is very easy when turned on for the first time it will be in pairing mode automatically. In the specifications the battery is rated at 40hrs. The speaker is about the size of the Beats Pill, a little bit flatter, it is very light and sounds very loud. The color is a matte black and the front mesh seems to be made of fabric. On the back of the speaker it has a compartment that holds the mini USB connector and AUX port. On the top it has 5 buttons, the power, play/phone, volume +/-, and the pairing button. I was surprised how loud this speaker was for its size, however I did notice when you are playing at max volume it sounds a little muffled. Below the max level the sound is very clear, but it also lack of bass. I paired this speaker to an Android device, in the Bluetooth settings you can check this speaker battery level which I see that very useful. I received a few phone calls on this speaker and it sounds very well, the person on the other end were able to hear me loud and clear. In the specifications it says the range is about 33 feat, I was able to do a little over 50 feet and to my surprise it worked. The speaker feels good in the hand and is well made, is not like you are going to be holding it but it is worth mentioning. In the box it comes with the speaker, manual and a small mini USB charging cable. Overall at this price point this a very good speaker with some good features and the only con is the lack of bass.

    Defective product!

    I had this speaker for 3 months. Now the charging port is loose and won't charge. I contacted Best Buy and they made me an appointment with the Geek squad. They said they couldn't do anything for me. All they could do is tell me I should have got the protection plan. Well I won't be getting any more Insignia brands. Thanks for nothing. Don't waste your time.

    Insignia Sonic Portable Bluetooth Speaker is a great powerful speaker, small but mighty, It has the sound of a giant speaker. The sound that comes out of this blue tooth is unbelievable. It's worth the value! You can enjoy it at your work desk, while washing dishes, or entertaining while playing some bid whiz or spades. Inexpensive and cute. It makes the perfect gift for someone on the go!

    I would not consider myself an audiofile by any means but I really try to aim for products that give me a good, full sound for listening to music and watching movies and shows. I bought two of the speakers to use as a stereo system but also as a makeshift home theater system. I could not be more satisfied with the speakers. Versus my TV speakers watching movies is like I’m in a movie theater as for me it produces room filling sound when stereo paired. For fairness sake I don’t believe it can be a full replacement for a home theater system but I think it’s a great way to get started in that for a relatively inexpensive cost. I have them paired to my Apple TV. I also use the speakers for listening to music and working out on the go. It really helps me hear my workout music better and the fact that the battery life is so long means I can almost go a week straight without needing to charge them since the battery life lasts about 40 hours per speaker.

    Great little speaker for work or fun on the go.

    Posted .

    I was disappointed with the bluetooth speaker(s) that I was using at work. The sound quality and/or the battery life on my other BT enabled speakers did not live up to the hype printed on the packaging. I stumbled upon the Insignia Sonic portable speaker while shopping for a better BT speaker. The price was right and a sales associate informed me that he himself purchased one and was happy with its performance. I was NOT disappointed with my decision to purchase the Sonic portable. The sound quality is great for the price and its size. I was so impressed with its performance that after I went back to Best buy and purchased a second one for true stereo sound reproduction, and I was not disappointed! The pairing of the two speakers was smooth and easy connection to my Galaxy device was also quick and hassle free. I definitely will and have recommended this great little speaker combo to my friends and coworkers. All who have experienced the sound of these little firecrackers were also impressed. AWESOME PRODUCT for their size and price!! I'm getting two more for my garage.

    Best 2-speaker Bluetooth available at price point!

    Owned for less than 1 week when reviewed.

    For $25 I am beyond impressed!!! I had bought a jbl flip5 and it kept cutting in and out on Bluetooth with the iPhone sitting 5 feet away…. This has no cut out, just as loud, slightly less base and only distorts at the loudest volume…. For $25 I am going back to buy 3 more…. As a fireman, we use this in the truck and around the station for just listening to XM Sirius from our phones…. It has brought so much morale to our station I couldn’t be more pleased…. At at the price point, the inevitable drop or break or whatever is sure to come, but at $100 cheaper than the jbl, I’m ok with it when it happens…. And the battery life is 60 hrs, not 40 as stated on website…. I’m on 54 hrs and haven’t recharged yet and no blinking light…. BUY IT NOW, DO NOT HESITATE! Compare it to other $25 speakers and it’s a no brainer!!!!

    Sonic BT Great PAIR

    |
    Posted .
    Owned for 1 week when reviewed.

    I previously purchased the smaller version of this bluetooth speaker and loved it. I especially loved that you can combine two together and have stereo sound. I pair them for stereo and then pair them to one of my tablets. This pretty easy to do with some patience and doing one or two times. I put them on either side of me when I am reading. The sonic sounded loud and clear when I paired them with my insignia bluetooth turntable. While it lacks bass, it is very clear even at higher volumes. A very good purchase especially when they are on sal.

    So bought this to take to beach. Connected as soona I got home. Sounds good and easy to pair. Also have insignia Bluetooth adapter with the use of my 5.1 receiver for my shed. I get into trouble with neighbors and wife. So that is a good thing in my book. If you want to take control of sound effects go through phone settings or app settings. So far super happy. P.S. get extended warranty just in case.

    Great for wired computer speaker on video calls

    |
    Posted .

    I spent too much time searching for a small speaker bar for my computer. Either they were super cheap or way too expensive. I had a hard time finding one in the $50-100 price range. I was looking for a small speaker that could fit under a 32" computer monitor, still have good sound, and 3.5mm aux in. I have found this speaker to have perfect sound for video conference calls. The bass is on the weak side but mids and highs are great. Voice is crystal clear, much better than Macbook Pro speakers. I used an old iPhone power adapter (5v/1A) with micro USB cable to keep the speaker permanently attached to power. The speaker stays on if connected to utility power, unlike other similar speakers. Note: I have not tested with Bluetooth, I prefer to hardwire with the 3.5mm input for work conference calls.

    If you are looking for solid portable speaker this sonic speaker does a great job. The sound travels very well in the large room I place it. Very durable case for portability and using for travel. I just finished a 3-day trip using the speaker for music mainly and have very happy with the performance. I listen to main pop, jazz and some rock. Some of the deep bass sounds do not come through as well as larger speakers but for the size it does an amazing job.

    Nice little speaker for on the go use.

    Posted .

    Insignia has come out with several different portable Bluetooth speakers over the past several years. I've owned a few of them and this latest Sonic speaker is very good overall. The speaker itself is fairly small, with a directional, front-firing design. The front is covered with a mesh-like material and the rest of the body covered by a hard plastic. It does have kind of a cheap feel to it, but seems to be sufficient by design. There is a rubber flap in back that covers the micro-USB charging port and 3.5mm jack. It would have been nice to see USB C used instead, but unfortunately that isn't the case. Speaker is IPX5 rated so it will be water resistant to sprays and splashes, but not waterproof. Sound quality is pretty good for a speaker of this size. Not strong bass, but it does have some bass output. Overall sound is pretty clear and the speaker gets fairly loud for something this size and doesn't get too distorted when turned up to max volume. Battery life is very good, but it would have been nice to have some way to check the battery level like a light bar or verbal notification with a button press. All this speaker offers is a beep notification when the battery is low. This speaker can also be used for phone calls and it does a decent job doing this. People on the other end can tell you aren't on an actual phone, but can hear you clear enough to make it a usable option. Overall, a very solid offering for a small, portable speaker. It does also have the ability to be paired with another of the same speaker wirelessly, so you can enjoy even better sound. I have noticed the Sonic has already been on sale a couple of times, despite being a fairly new model. I would recommend this speaker, but would also recommend waiting on a sale. It's too bad it doesn't come in more color options than basic black, but maybe they will bring out more colors in the future.

    I don't normally write reviews but I felt compelled to write one for this little gem. My expectations for this wireless speaker were fairly low considering the price point. I have to say I was very pleasantly surprised. Crisp clear audio, little to no distortion even at higher volumes. It makes for a great office speaker (my current use). As others have said it is a bit light on the bass but I think that's fine for such a compact device. The microphone works well enough although callers say they can hear some echoing so I wouldn't use it all the time. Truly a fantastic speaker

    Works great at a reasonable price anyone to make a negative comment has issues I bought 4 total and put all around house in different locations and they all work great so you people don’t listen to everything you hear about reviews they work great if people want higher end then use your brain and spend more money like anything you get what you pay for and for economy price they are fantastic and great sound quality anyone gives it a two rating spend the money and buy you a Bose system
