    Quality for the Price

    Pros: portable
    decent sound
    simple setup

    Cons: bluetooth is reliable once connected but can cut in/out when first connecting

    Great buy for the price. Definitely not a high end speaker system but is great for on the go and the sound can fill a decent sized room. Would recommend purchasing for anyone looking for a small system to take to the beach or just to play music while cooking dinner.

    Great little box

    Pros: Price is great

    Cons: Alittle low
    Wrong charging cord

    It's a great buy for the money. I wish it was a little louder but I can live with it. The only weird thing was it was shipped with the wrong charging cord, I have the right one anyway so it wasn't that big of a deal. A plus is they send a short 3.5mm cord with it also so didn't have to buy one

    Cheap but unimpressive

    Pros: price, looks

    Cons: connection, sound

    Inconsistent connection. Sometimes it connects, other times it doesn't. A big frustrating.
    If you like 80's cassette tape sound, you'll like this one.

    Speaker is not eliable

    I gave this product a good review when I purchased it seven months ago. However, every time that I try to use it the sound will cut out for no reason This happens both when it is wired or wireless. This is very frustrating since I expected this product to be in working order for much longer than it has, especially considering the fact that I don't use it very often. It also gives off a high pitched whine when it is wired. If I try to use it wirelessly the battery fails with a couple of minutes.

    Hello S.D.,

    Thank you for your review and my apologies for the issues you have experienced with PID 10949. Unfortunately, it sounds like the unit has become defective. Now if you’d like, I can help setup an RMA for a replacement. If you would like me to proceed with the RMA, just let me know and I can get this started right away. Sorry again for the trouble and hope this helps!

    I'm not sure what an RMA is, but I would certainly like to remedy this situation.

    by S.D.
    I'm just wondering about the RMA. There was no response to my last reply.

    by S.D.
    I apologize if there's something that I'm missing, but I'm still not seeing any communication regarding this issue.

    by Monoprice Administrator
    Sorry for the delayed response. RMA stands for Return Merchandise Authorization, it is just the name for the return/replacement process. I would be able to set up to have the speaker replaced under its 1 year warranty. Just let me know and I can get that set up.

    by S.D.
    This sounds great. Just let me know what I have to do.

    by S.D.
    I'm just wondering if there's any progress with the RMA.

    by S.D.
    Okay, I'm surprised by the lack of communication on this issue. It's been four days since my last reply and still nothing. I can see no RMAs that are active on my account. I would greatly appreciate an update on what is going on.

    by S.D.
    Please respond to this message. Has an RMA been set up or not? It has been almost three weeks since any communication on your part and despite the fact that I have indicated more than once that I would like to set up an RMA, there is no indication that this has been done.

    by Monoprice Administrator
    Sorry for the delayed response. We are very backed up at the moment and a bit short staffed. I see that an RMA was set up. I have went ahead and pushed it through the RMA process you should be receiving emails regarding the RMA for replacement shortly. Again my apologies and I hope the new unit will be much better.

    Great Value and Sound

    Pros: Easy pairing
    Good sound
    Good bluetooth range

    Cons: Loud prompt announcements
    Wish it had more bass

    Great speaker that is easy to pair and has good sound. Wish it had a little more bass, but I can't complain given it's size. Really good range on the bluetooth.
    Can't complain given the price.
