NOT Satisfied

Purchased this speaker due to the play time, and water and dust resistance. VERY dissappointed with the play quality. Not much volume, even with the phone turned to max volume, and now the usb hook up, which it is charged through, is not functioning properly. I do not recommend purchasing this speaker at this price, deffinitely not worth it

Good quality, but I would pass if buying a pair

I bought a pair of these after researching and watching user review videos. I needed them to sync as a pair, and unfortunately they are not as great at that feature as was indicated. I was able to sync them a couple of times successfully, but the process is very much hit and miss, and usually takes about half an hour of attempts before a successful pairing. they also do not automatically re-connect when turned on to a previously connected device, as I was led to believe in some of the demos. Therefore, I cannot recommend these speakers because they take so long to try and use properly for the intended use, (pairing 2 together) that in order to just listen to music we got fed up and frustrated and used something else. However, if I were only buying the one speaker, I would have given it a better rating because the sound quality is spectacular for the size.

Built Great, Sounds Pretty Good

Very happy with this purchase... doesn't sound quite as good as similar sized BOSE, but takes a beating like no other speaker in its class... which ultimately is more important to me. Rain, snow, sand and shock-proof... even floats! This thing will be used outside extensively... so this kind of durability is a must. And a battery life of 30 hours with only 4 hours charge time... what more can you ask for?
