Not Happy

I have had a few Bluetooth speakers and I was looking for a waterproof one for cottage time. The sound on this one is not great. Also, I had the unit for just over one year, only used a few times and it no longer holds a charge. I have seen this same review on a few other review sites. Contacted Altec Lansing and they noted that it was over one year and therefore the warranty no longer applies.

Honest review best purchase !!!

This is my 4th bluetooth speaker ...have stuff from [competitor] (waterproof,shockproof) all garbage..bought beats and batt life not as good as this. So far ive taken this to Jamaica and had this in water , on the sand by the beach with no issues..had the speaker in swimming pool as well and damn thing floats on the water and the sound is amazing. Battery life is amazing on this thing. best bang for your buck.

Not Great Sound

There is always a largely present buzzing sound in the background while using it, and the volume of the songs always seems to fluctuate on its own. Also, it will randomly cut out and will stop playing for a couple second and it will happen multiple times throughout the playing, and it will even just stop playing altogether. Also, all of its other parts such as its brackets, aux cord, and charger all seem very cheaply made and are not great, and the cover seems as if it will easily rip. In general, this speaker is not worth the amount spent
