    This device did not come with instructions and setting it up was frustrating. It was not user friendly.

    Two word, user UNFRIENDLY. No instructions, buttons obscure, battery buried deep in its belly. I returned it.

    Execellent 360 sound for a speaker about the size of a popcan and for price! I did buy 2 and there were no clear directions on how to link them together for surround sound effect so I did have to you tube it. There is a button on the very top (that isn't very apparent) that needs to be pressed together and it'll link!

    Awesome sound for such a little package

    Do not be fooled by the little packaging, this speaker sounds great. Loud enough to fill a small room to uncomfortable volumes. My only complaint is that the instructions are anemic, and the sync button is not where it shows on the instructions. 1 star off for that.

    Too cute for its own good - limited use

    I found this product to be less than satisfactory for anything but limited use. First, installation is not intuitive - like some new products, there are NO INSTRUCTIONS - it has something that must be a picture based set of instructions, but it does not give you any clue what to do beyond 1 and 2. It does not tell you what to do next. You will have to go to bluetooth on your device and activate the pairing from a listing. Not sure why this was not mentioned at all. Volume controls are not described at all - they are the - and + signs on the body (in yellow). Second, sound is okay - that is why I note it is limited. Better than nothing but certainly not great sounding. Third, no instructions on charging this - there is a piece of ill fitting rubberized plastic at the base that hides the micro usb charging port. You'd think at least it would be labeled or ingrained with "usb". I guess if you need a portable speaker for some device that is water resistant, this is okay. I wonder why you'd need one since I'd never put anything electrical near water. I'm over 50 and I see no use for this other than to leave it in a place where I don't have speakers and to use it on a limited basis. Instructions are awful to non-existant and those debits are what bring down this score. Too cute for its own good.

    Nice little speaker that works good and sounds decent. I bought this to keep at my summer place and bring to the beach. Don't expect the world from a sub $100 speaker. Instructions provided are lame. It took me a while scouring the internet to figure out how to check the battery level. @@@@@@@@ Press + - together. 3 tone sound means full charge, 2 tone means 1/2 charged, 1 tone means battery is low. I like the fact that it has a 2 year manufacturer warranty!

    What a great little speaker! Don't let the small size fool you, it produces amazing sound in a compact size. Great bass, clear highs. I imagine it would only be better if you had two of them. Pros: Easy to pair with Bluetooth devices. Very compact, 360 sound. Water-resistant so can be used in the shower or by the pool. I tested it in the shower with no issues. Supposedly it floats, but I didn't test that feature. It has very few buttons, a power button, a button to initiate pairing, and a button that serves the purpose to play/pause/skip music tracks. It didn't come with very comprehensive instructions, so it took me a while to figure out how to skip a track, finally I decided to try the double press on the switch. I listened to it all day at work at a fairly moderate volume and was still getting the "high" indicator when checking the battery level. Dropped it from a moderate height (3-4 feet) with no damage. Which brings me to the cons: There is no battery level indicator, just a tone that plays 3 different notes depending on high, medium, or low charge. It didn't seem to want to reconnect to the last device automatically. That could probably have been an error on my part, as I used several different devices to test the range of functionality. Then when I went back to the first one, I had to go to Bluetooth settings on my device and choose the speaker to connect to it. If you have an antiquated device that doesn't have Bluetooth and requires the auxiliary jack, you can't use it. @@@@@@@@ not an issue for me, but I'm listing it because it could be for some) Additional notes: It doesn't come with an AC adapter, but has a standard USB connection so any that you have will work and the speed of the charge will depend on the output of that.
