    Better than JBL

    I researched several of these waterproof Bluetooth speakers for my wife and after hours of listening and searching i took a chance on this one based on the price. i never got to preview the sound on this one but all doubts where erased once my wife used it for the first time. WOW is all i can say for the powerful sound that this little speaker produces. Also remember that what sounds great to one person may not sound good to another, but also i ran this next to an expensive JBL that looks very similar and this one beat it out hands down and the cost savings were an added bonus.

    I bought this speaker for my teenage son for christmas.He listened to music on it for a total of approximately 2 hours before it started acting up. It got all crackly and distorted. I also purchased another speaker just like this one just a different color for my older son at a local store ( it was the only one left so that's why I made the second purchase through Bestbuy) his wouldnt even work at all straight out of the package. These speakers are complete crap, do not waste your money on them!!

    I am happy with my Jam. I originally purchased it for a road trip - my cousin has an older car without streaming capability so I thought I'd use the Jam and my phone to listen to Sirius. Worked great! I didn't give it five stars because it takes a try or two to connect. Not that big of a deal and again, for the price, it is well worth it.

    For $20, this has been a very good speaker. I mostly use it in the bathroom to listen to podcasts and music in the morning when getting ready. The only negative I can bring up is that it does not hang up with the sticky back as I thought it would. I didn't have much confidence that it would actually work because it's only a little sticky pad but I think it's worth noting. Otherwise, a very excellent sounding speaker for the price and size.

    I went into Best Buy for a bluetooth speaker since the Chevy system is stupid. I planned to spend less than $50 but for less than $15 I picked up this little gem! It includes a power cord and a sticky pad that can be used or ignored by leaving the flap over it. Now I carry it in the car and my laptop case so this is a definite win!

    Works well, music plays clearly, not much distortion. Used a few times in the shower so looks like it is waterproof as stated on the box. The set up instructions could be better. It comes with an "Ikea style" pictogram instruction that is not as simple to understand as Ikea's. A few printed words/lines on how to set up/pair, instead of just pictures, & I would have given it 5 stars.

    I originally bought this as a gift but trade it out before giving it away. Was expecting just a traditional Bluetooth speaker. I was amazed with the sound and volume that came from this. But was even more impressed that it could be used for Bluetooth calls which is a definite plus with anybody with a Bluetooth speaker. It's a great product and recommend to anyone considering to buy.

    I got this as a gift and set it up and the sound quality for this little speaker will fill a smaller area. The main reason i purchased this device was because it was water resistance/ or could be used when getting ready in the morning. If a little water got on the speaker, then I did not have to worry. I would not recommend placing this in the pool or taking it underwater.

    Great Speaker to Use Near Water

    It's a great speaker at a great deal. Sound quality is okay but for the price it's a great deal. Sound does get a bit muffled when the speaker is hit with water but not a big deal and dries pretty quickly. I really just love the peace of mind.

    This speaker is totally awesome! I got the same day shipping and it came about 6 hours later it was awesome!! Also this speaker is so loud for its size I was very impressed. I keep this speaker in my shower so I can listen to music and it’s totally waterproof and sticks to the wall easily! I would recommend this for anyone!

    I buy it to listen to music while we eat with my family. It sounds very good and gives the necessary volume. If the sound goes up, it also sounds good, although personally I never give it the full volume. I have it paired with my iPhone 7 and it works perfectly. Also visually it is very attractive and very nice to have it in your hands.

    Better range than expected

    I wasn’t expecting this speaker to actually lived up to its claimed 100’ range. However, it’s actual range is very good! I had it out 90+ feet away and it was working with my iPhone behind a wall! Quite impressive! Sound quality is fairly good as well. Volume is pretty high for a small speaker.

    Very happy with this little speaker. I own a couple of pucks and this one sounds the best in this price range. Easy to travel (small), battery lasts a good long time, is plenty loud unless your trying to use to power a dance rave party... LOL. Perfect for listening to music, watching movies, etc.

    I bought this to pair with my phone to listen to podcasts and to play some music on game nights and it's worked out great so far. Being so small it's obviously not going to give you big, booming bass. But if you're just looking for something to listen to in a quiet space or in the background it works very well.

    Loved this little tiny portable speaker for the two weeks it worked! My hearing isn't full and I needed the top volume levels which was great. I am not able to hear podcasts on my cell phone or radio so I really appreciated it. But the battery only lasted a couple weeks!

    I bought this because i have an older car which is not equipped with Bluetooth. I use it to use my phone to have handsfree conversation. It also sounds decent for music though don’t expect to dj a block party with it.

    If you are looking for something that would be loud enough and also good sound quality, this is NOT the speaker. The performance is comparable to a phone or tablet. I had to return this product right away and spent a bit more to buy the UE boom2 speaker.

    We bought this for our daughter and she seems to like it so far. It has a high enough value that it works for her. We have not had any problems so far and she is liking her speaker. It’s nice for her to have her on so now she is not constantly trying to use ours.

    Not only was it easy to use and with great sound it was nice to have the charging cord attached to the unit so you didn’t have to worry about losing it I also bought two extras and gave them to some friends. I would recommend this to everyone.

    Great portable speaker, nice range distance. Does have a tendency to vibrate if volume is turned up high, which can result in it falling off wherever it’s sitting on. For the price i consider it a solid purchase!
