Disappointed actually

It does look very nice, classy and professional. HOWEVER: 1. Sound quality is not Hi-Res over Bluetooth actually, just regular sound. Sounds pretty flat in itself unless you're using an app, such like JetAudio, to seriously enhance the sound quality. Good quality over Wi-Fi. But are you always going to be AT HOME to use it over Wi-Fi? 2. Wi-Fi pairing is a real pain in the butt. 3. Switching to Bluetooth from phone/tablet will NOT automatically switch the device to Bluetooth mode or turn on the device, as you would probably expect. 4. For some reason, at times, the sound volume alternates while listening to music on Spotify: sometimes it gets a bit low, and then gets back up. Weird. 5. It gets warm underneath from the battery while playing music. Weird. 6. Too many restrictions from the manufacturer: do not put in direct sunlight, no water spilled on it, no sand, no moisture, no dust, no this, no that! I wanted an item I could do exactly that when you're going to the pool or to the beach! This speaker is not waterproof !!! 7. I don't understand why anyone would want to remove the grille. It doesn't change the audio quality or any. Weird. 8. Bass is very good. However, with some apps, it will lower the volume actually. Weird. 9. The app that you can use with this device is a REAL DISASTER: it is NOT appealing at all, not professional and the user interface looks cheap and lame: I am actually not using it at all! It's a joke. 10. Pretty heavy to be carried outdoors, but you shouldn't, because of the above-mentioned restrictions of use. I would've kept it if they'd built it for outdoors use, like you don't need to stress that it's in the sun, moisture or water spills. For the price, they could have.

Sound very good, app is a disaster

The sound is very good, depending on what app you are using to play your music. Can be used while it is plugged in (charging or not), can be charged using regular power or via USB. The Bluetooth pairing is easy. However, the network connection process is long and not easy - it can connect to your router like a Chromecast device. Their app (SongPal) is a real DISASTER: user interface is ugly, it looks unprofessional and settings are too basic, at least for me. For the price we pay, they could've come up with a professional app that looks great and has tons of settings. It is NOT the case. I refuse to use it.
