    This small Bluetooth speaker does just what it claims. It produces good sound in all directions for a distance of at least 100 feet away from the source. @@@@@@@@ It also claims to be waterproof, but I did not test this aspect. @@@@@@@ It comes with a bright yellow USB cable which will be hard to loose, and worked as it should in both my laptop's USB port and a plug-in USB port.

    This bluetooth speaker is great for indoor and outdoor use. My kids enjoy using it when they are in the shower and my wife enjoys taking it outside in the pool. It is very simple to set up and it comes in very compact packaging. The sound quality is good for the price range and the on/off buttons and volume controls are easy to manage. The speaker was able to hang on to it's charge for about 6 hours before running out. The only drawback, and this is minor, is that the usb connection is a bit awkward.Overall, I would highly recommend this speaker.

    I just set this up the other day. It was extremely easy to setup from my cell phone. A simply push of the power button, then sync button, go to your device and select the speaker from your BlueTooth menu - All set. You can control the volume and play/pause from your device or the speaker. It has a wide range for the volume, and gets louder than I wanted to try. I used it inside and outside. I did not test it to see if it's water resistant/proof I'll take their word for it (It's supposed to be water resistant to 1 meter). I ran it for most of the night and did not drain the battery yet (it's supposed to be good for 10 hrs, I used it for about 6 hours uninterrupted). I also tested it out earlier in my office for range. It went an easy 70-80' around walls etc. @@@@@@@@ it's supposed to be good for 100' - likely for open space) It's a pretty simple design/setup. There are 5 buttons on the speaker: power on/off, sync, play/pause, volume up, volume down. There is also a port for the included USB cord to recharge (does not include the wall plug, only USB cord). It has a small loop to hang it with although it's a little too heavy to hang from your belt, but maybe a backpack or duffel bag would be good or somewhere from your deck or beach umbrella. Sound quality was very good, not great as the volume went up loud. A great product.

    This is my first Bluetooth speaker, so I did not know 100 % what I was getting into sound wise. I've not been disappointed at all, especially that it was only $100.00 at the time I received it. The speaker arrived with some juice in it's batteries, but I decided to plug it in, and let it fully charge up which took about 4 1/2 hours. On a full charge it's supposed to last about 10 hours. The box that the speaker comes in was just barely big enough to enclose the speaker and it's included 2' long USB charging cable. My USB cable was yellow to match the speakers all grey color with yellow + and - buttons for the audio controls and yellow cord to hang it from various items. I liked that the USB was yellow as it make's it very easy to see which cable you need without looking closely at the connectors. Overall the sound is 4 out of 5 stars. While the highs, and mids are there, it does lack some in the bass department. It paired very quickly to my 4th generation iPod and to my Moto G3 phone. I streamed an FM station from my phone to the Wonderboom for roughly 4 hours as I waxed my F150 and girlfriends Honda CRV. The phone was in the shade of the garage while the Wonderboom was on a small ice chest to act as a platform while I moved it all over while waxing the vehicles. The furthest the Wonderboom got from my phone was 80 to 85 feet and never once did it loose the connection. And while most of the time it was in plain site of my phone, there were many times it was out of site and behind my truck for quite some time, but the signal came through loud and clear. Speaking of loud, I did have the Wonderdooms loudness up to maybe 65 % and did not notice any distortion. The volume for the Wonderboom can be controlled directly on the speaker using the + and - buttons or from your device like an Ipod, phone, etc. The box that the Wonderboom comes in has a picture of the speaker on the box and it's the same size as the speaker itself. So if you're in the store wondering how big or small the speaker is, just look the the picture on the box. I've also included a photo of the speaker next to a 12 ounce can of soda to also give you and idea on the speakers size. The Wonderboom claims that it's waterproof and shockproof, but I'll hopefully not have to find out if that's true. Overall, I've given the Wonderboom 4 out of 5 stars. Taking off 1 star for it's less than robust bass. But I'd still highly recommend the Wonderboom for it's price and relative good audio.
