  • A little disappointed

    Most of the time this is a good speaker, but it’s not a great speaker. I actually returned the first one I bought because I thought it was broken, turns out it wasn’t. The sound is good, the blue tooth works up to 50ft well, and I love it’s battery, and the stereo connection with other altec speakers worked great. The problem I had was it would clip out low volumes. Not bad with music actually on your device, but streaming proved annoying. You might miss the first part of a word after a brief pause, the faint background noises from a Netflix movie. If it was low in volume it cut it out. Gets really annoying. The company suggested draining and recharging the battery which actually helped a little but didn’t remove the problem. Actually bought h2o 3 to pair with it and never had the same problems. So save a bit of money and buy the smaller version.


  • very poor quality

    bought this speaker a year ago, had small problems from the very beginning, now it cut out frequently (even when using the direct wire connection to music source. If I could give it a 0 stars I would. Don't waste your money on Altec products.

    I purchased this speaker a couple months ago, and as the Dieppe Review above says, I am not very pleased. My USB charge port also is not working now, and the sound is terrible. I also purchased it for the dust, water, and shock abilities, but I am very disappointed. Do not recommend purchasing this brand of bluetooth speaker.
