    Perfect—just what I was looking for
    I have zero problems with this unit so far. Paired instantly and the NFC works as advertised as well. The sound quality is fantastic for such a small speaker, and volume level is great as well on a flat/basic EQ.



    I did tweak my EQ on my phone and the sound quality improved even more than expected. Careful with the low end though, the bass will distort if it's pushed too hard (duh, it's a 40mm driver).



    There is no separate volume control on the speaker. This is actually quite nice, IMO. As is par for the course, my phone at 100% volume will distort the speaker (although not near as badly as I assumed). Anything lower than 90% sounds great.



    I bought this to use while paddling my canoe, camping, sitting outside by the fire, etc. For these purposes, this is going to be an excellent unit.



    I'm really not sure why the complaints on sound quality from other reviewers. A speaker this small (unless it's Bose) will only be able to do so much. Why complain that it doesn't pump out bass like a twin 18" subwoofer box? Pointless.

    PROS: Price

    Size

    Weight

    Durability

    CONS: none

    I really liked it
    Will be buying more in near future

    PROS: Decent sound for a speaker that small. Easy to pair with Bluetooth.

    CONS: size makes it easy for my kid to swipe, ( I haven't seen it in a week)

    Great Value
    This is a great speaker for the price. I've been very surprised at how long the battery is lasting. It's only a few inches big so the potential for big sound is not there but it's exactly what I expected to be.

    PROS: Great value for the price.

    CONS: It's not going to blow you away.

    Very excellent for the price
    Definitely worth the money. I've been using it every day since I got it.

    PROS: Loud, good sound quality, dead simple, sturdy

    CONS: Sometimes has issues with pairing, particularly with multiple devices. In order to pair a new device you have to unpair the other one and make sure the device isn't trying to reconnect (android in my case)

    5/5
    Love this little unit. I pair it with my iphone. It's simple and stylish (if the black monolithic thing does it for you) and puts out room filling volume without much distortion. It's quite directional though, you will want it pointing at you to get the best sound (particularly bass). Don't expect miracles, this is still a small box speaker system but with some tweaking using the EQ settings in your phone (I like the 'R&B' or 'Acoustic' settings in iTunes) you cn get quite decent sound out of it. It's perfect for traveling/hotel rms etc.



    Much better sound quality than (Premium Portable Sonic Resonance Speaker Product Number: 6914) to my ears.



    The bluetooth functionality is glitch free, and there is a helpful voice to tell you when it is in pairing mode and when it gets paired. The volume buttons on the top of the unit double as track skip buttons (short push for forward and back, long push for volume changes). If you need to make minor volume adjustments it might be better to do that on your phone etc as it's easy to skip tracks when what you really intend to do is tweak the volume a bit.

    PROS: Works as advertised, sound is very good.

    CONS: The integrated volume/track advance buttons can make it challenging to make small volume adjustments without accidentally changing tracks

    Great Sound, Great Price
    This spoeaker delivered far more than I was expecting it's definitely a buy!

    PROS: Very good sound quality for its size almost as good as my wife's expensive brand-name speaker which cost 5x more. Nice compact size means it can go anywhere. Charges quickly.

    CONS: Usng the same buttons for volume control and track skipping takes some time to get used to.

    Only one complaint
    I do not use it for phone calls, so I can not comment on the built in microphone. It works exactly as I hoped for, except for it's pairing notification. My only complaint is the volume of the notification it makes, every time it pairs with my device. I have the volume for my music set at one click above silent, so as not to annoy my fellow coworkers. However, every time I pair the speaker (including when I walk out of range and back in again) it announces "your phone is connected" at 50% of speaker volume. I have received several complaint about this, but there is no way to lower the volume, or disable the notification all together.

    PROS: Easy to setup

    Perfect for my office, as I do not need it to be very loud.





    CONS: Pairing notification to loud and not adjustable

    Bluetooth Brick
    My 40 year old daughter has the JawBox that she paid around $120 for it. To be honest, I can't tell the difference. Monoprice has been my go to place for wiring, connectors, 3D glasses, etc. for over 6 years. Great quality, unbeatable prices. Prompt delivery

    PROS: Unbeatable price. Great quality. Easy setup

    CONS: I didn't buy it sooner

    Works well, easy to setup
    Good sound, easy to setup, worked right out of the box... not sure why people spend 100+ on something like this.

    PROS: Good sound
    easy setup
    simple to use

    Great value.
    Great product at a great price. Works well with my Acer C720 Chromebook.

    PROS: Good sound. Works as advertised.

    CONS: It doesn't come in pink.
