Bluetooth® Portable Speaker
Fill the room with wireless sound with this Bluetooth® Portable Speaker from Monoprice!
This stereo speaker connects to your phone, tablet, or mp3 player using the Bluetooth wireless standard. It is powered by a 6 watt (RMS) amplifier with a peak output level of 12 watts. It complies with the Bluetooth 2.0+EDR standard and supports the A2DP and AVRCP profiles. It has a clear line-of-sight range of up to 49 feet (15 meters).
The speaker is powered by a BL-5C rechargeable battery, which provides up to 8 hours of playback. The battery is accessible via a small door on the bottom of the speaker unit, so you can get extra batteries to keep the music going for even longer. It is charged with a USB mini-B cable (included).
In addition to Bluetooth, the speaker also supports a physical line-in connection via a 3.5mm stereo headphone jack and cable (also included). It includes Bass Boost circuitry, which improves the low-end of the musical spectrum.
The speaker measures 8.9" x 2.9" x 1.5" and weighs 12.3 ounces.

OK Small Speaker but lots of Bluetooth noise

Pros: nice portable size, decent battery life
Cons: Lots of noise with BT connection. I have to use the AUX
This is a great idea that just isn't executed quite right. The speaker sounds ok, but if using Bluetooth, which really is the point of the product, there is a high pitched tone that really ruins the listening experience. I usually end up plugging in the AUX with at mini jack cable to avoid the noise. Kind of a fail.
Excellent price. Mediocre sound

Pros: Fraction of the price of similar speakers
Treble is fine
Cons: Buttons and switches are low-grade
Not very durable
Despite bass boost decal, the bass is somewhat lacking
I wanted an inexpensive, larger Bluetooth speaker and this fits the bill. Works great for occasional use, but I would probably get tired of the sound quality if I used it all the time.

Pros: Sound quality is very good and no issues with functionality.....quite satisfied.
Cons: The "On-Off" switch is difficult to use ......far .too TINY ......should be slightly larger (more protruding from the body of the unit). It is hard to tell which position the switch is set . . . . .the detent is nonexistent and useless.

Pros: Sleak design, good sound quality when wired
Cons: Buzz or hum once activating and/or streaming bluetooth
Read about the hum, but hoped it would be minimally distracting or could be drowned out at high volumes. Wishful thinking unfortunately and will need to be returned.

Thank you for your review on PID 9728. I truly apologize for the humming/buzzing issues experienced with this speaker. If you would like, I can assist you in setting up an RMA for a replacement to see if a new unit would work out any better as we cover this speaker with a one year warranty. Or, if truly dissatisfied with the speaker, I can process a return RMA instead. Please let me know how you would prefer to proceed and I will get that going right away. Sorry again for the trouble and I hope this helps!

Cons: Sound quality, overall performance
Let's be realistic - my expectation weren't to achieve high fidelity sound reproduction with a unit in this price range. This purchase was simply to sit atop my desk and play music and talk radio at a low volume. The unit pairs easily, but all is downhill from there. While paired, all is fine, but as soon as you stream audio, the unit emits a constant high-pitched squeal. This only stops if you stop streaming audio. In addition, the volume controls do not control the volume. If willing to use the aux cord, the squeal issue is resolved, so this is definitely related to the bluetooth receiver. Bottom line, it's a piece of junk in a price range that offers some better options.
