Bluetooth doesn't work

Don't know if it was just this speaker, but bluetooth does not work at all. Tried with multiple devices and it does not show up. Will be returning. Sound quality is okay when I used the aux cord, as long as it isn't too loud. Once it gets louder it gets crackly.

the lady really does scream at you

check the prior review because they're totally right. no matter what volume you have it on, when you turn on the speaker it screams at full blast HELLO WELCOME TO ALTEC LANSING! this thing may have good volume for its size and be easy to carry around with the clip but with that loud voice every time i returned it. i don't care how good a speaker is but if that's an issue i won't be using it. i hear it's a problem with all of altec lansing's products, too. hope they fix it soon

the intro voice is TOO LOUD

This is an issue that everyone is having, and Altec claims to be 'trying to fix it'. I didn't listen to the first reviewer... when you turn it on, the voice is on max (no matter the volume setting) and screams "POWER ON, WELCOME TO ALTEC LANSING!!!" and when it turns off, it yells "GOODBYE!". This is ridiculous! Otherwise, it's a great speaker. Almost no bass but for the price I didn't expect strong bass. Get the JBL clip speaker instead. That one works beautifully and has good bass!

Annoying lady shouts at you every time you turn it on!

I bought this speaker on sale and I'm impressed by the sound quality, but it has a couple very annoying "features". Every time you turn it on a lady's voice announces at full volume "Powering on! Welcome to Altec Lansing". This is very annoying and there doesn't seem to be any way to disable it or reduce the volume. If you do a web search you'll find a lot of complaints about this and it seems to be a problem with other Altec Lansing speakers as well. Another thing I found annoying is the bright blinking led that flashes continuously while it is powered on. I bought this partly to stream relaxing music before bed, but the flashing light really bothers me. l'll probably cover the light with tape and that's a minor problem compared the loud announcement on start-up. I may try to return it and get something else.
