Riddim 2

Wow, after listening to demo blue tooth speakers for about an hour at Best buy I was down to the JBL extreme when the sales person came out with the house of Marley riddim2. After about a 5 sec demo, I could tell this was by far the best sounding speaker, while it is not weather proof nor the lightest, I purchased it because of the sound, and now at home with a direct in source...Wow!

great speaker

awesome sounding speaker it sounds full and good bass. want to set one thing straight no you don't have to take the bag off to get to the charge port the bag has a small access hole for that. battery life is good just wish the speakers had a grill cover on it for protection. if you're looking for a good and loud sounding speaker and love bass give this one definitely a try.

GREAT SOUND BUT ...

Excellent sound, but horrible & annoying voice prompts ! Very loud and not customizable ! It will shake u up if you wanna sleep with some soft music ! Turning OFF prompt is the reTURNING point back to BEST BUY !

Excellent Speaker for its price, but ultimately unusable

O.k., first off, let me make this clear: I’m not giving this speaker only three stars because of its sound quality. As far as that’s concerned, for its price (especially since we were able to make off with this thing during a ridiculous special) this is a 4.5 sound quality speaker. It’s waaay more fun and clear than anything Bose puts out and wins hands down against any rival in its price range. As far as sound, the only issue is that the bass is soft and ridiculously boomy, but it does have it in SPADES. It’s way more powerful than any speaker it’s size should have the right to be, undoubtedly something its dual bass ports play a big role in. In spite of this overabundance of bass, its mids and highs remain clear and precise so that you can always enjoy what you are listening to to the fullest, whether that also includes voices, guitars, chimes or cymbals. So, you could say that the Bag of Riddim 2 is really the perfect kind of luggable speaker to get your party moving! And that’s what is so frustrating about it: this is a great speaker, but we had to return it because of the VOICE PROMPTS THAT SCREAM AT YOU THAT THE “UNIT IS ON!!!” “THE UNIT IS OFF!!!” “PAIRED!!!” “UNPAIRED!!!”. And I’m not kidding. Just before any of the prompts you can hear the unit set itself to maximum volume (based on the speaker hiss) and deliver the prompt so that all your neighbours know you’re getting ready to put on…some mellow jazz??? And there’s no way to disable the prompts or lower their volume. No, seriously, what was House of Marley THINKING? we have a 3 month old and I found myself activating and pairing the unit outside so as not to wake her. And ITS JANUARY!!! IN CANADA!!! (Can you hear those prompts, House of Marley?). Ultimately I returned the unit in favour of the Marley Get Together, which has loud, but not Earth-shattering chimes for prompts. The latter is also a good box, but it doesn’t deliver like its big brother (and only for the prompts is that a good thing).

Really good sound , but some major flaws

I bought this shortly after boxing day and I got a great deal . I also bought the other House of Marley Speaker Get Together . On sale , they were both about the same price. For pure sound , these speakers beat the get together speaker hands down. It's not even close . The specs say there is a speaker phone ......no theres not . Small is great. Heavy is great for the bass that is outstanding sound. Charge port you have to remove from the bag. Simply stupid design. Simple to connect via bluetooth or 3.5mm jack. No way at all for the following unlike UEstate Booms. Marley no battery state.indicator. Marley no app for connection or customisation. Marley unable to stop it SHOUTING AT YOU WHEN IT'S TURNING AND OFF. YOU FALL ASLEEP THIS WILL AWAKE YOU. Great speaker sound will impress all. Better sound than UE boom2 and Megaboom but is rubbish for all the above. - charge port should be with bag on. - should come with instructions. - should be about to check charge. - should have an app.

Good speakers

I've had this speaker for about 2 months now and the sound is incredible, even when you blast the volume. I like the different attachments that comes with the ac power cord.

Great full sound WOW

This thing really puts out. Me and my two 20 year old sons were listening to it and it has full range. Better that the Marley Get Together. It according to them get house party loud. Cons is that the Bass can sound a bit too punchy but we were only useing streamed music so that might have played a part in it. It is awesome that something this small sounds so great. I mean it is not small but when you compare it to the speaker of the past I have to say wow.

BOOM!

OMG! The SOUND from this is 100% The sound, like the unit itself, is Pure, Clean, Smooth and Top Shelf! Pair it up with your bluetooth or use the jack...it Rocks. You Be Jammin'! My only prob with the unit is the battery. Leave it plugged in all night and it only lasts about 2 hours. THAT is a let down. But still......I'm Not disappointed.

Sounds great, lots of power!

This thing sounds fantastic whether the volume quiet or loud. 2 x 20W = lots of volume. I'm really happy with this speaker. I was comparing it to the Soundlink Mini II or the UE boom 2 and this thing blows them out of the water.

Great outdoor speaker but annoying voice prompts

+The loudest portable speaker I've tested with maybe the lowest reaching bass as well (similar range to fugooxl & hkonyx studio 2) +Very detailed sound -incredibly annoying voice prompts that are at max vol even if you turn down speaker vol, can't be turned down at all
