    Wait for an improved version
    I'm a pretty loyal monoprice customer, and I recommend the site to everyone I know. So when I found this product, I thought Monoprice was jumping on the beats pill bluetooth mini speaker craze. I thought I would grab this product before it inevitably got a bit more popular and the site would list it for a higher price.



    Usually Monoprice's product are just as good or even better as other products on the market, but way less expensive. Sadly, this wasn't the case with this product. Once, I received the product it was even smaller than I expected and even lighter which is a pro. Once I took it out of the packaging and turned it on, the product paired with the closest device easily, but the sound of the voice in the device seemed a bit muffled. Once I started playing music on the device the quality was good and surprisingly loud. But about a minute in the sound would either switch back and forth between good quality to bad quality or the music would cut in and out. I tried two different devices, sometimes I would seem to get a bit of static, even right in front of the device. Phone calls seem to be a bit shakey on the device as well, but isn't as bad with static, just a bit muffled. Making calls is pretty easy with the device, as long as you speak close and clearly.



    Another good thing about the device is that it seems to support different ranges. I seemed to have received the same quality no matter how far or close you are to the speaker. It's just seems for me, I couldn't get consistent good quality from it either way.



    My advice is too buy one of the other cheap monoprice bluetooth boomboxes they are offering which have been received well (and around the same price) , or wait it out until this product has received has some more feedback and all the bugs are sorted out.



    PROS: Affordable

    Loud

    Small

    CONS: Bluetooth Cuts In and Out

    Sound Quality Fluctuates

    Some Static when playing music

    Stopped working after 1 month

    I have bought this before in the past and they have and still work great but i purchased one around Christmas of 2015 and it stopped working after about 1 month of use. The on /off switch stopped clicking into place. the volume buttons also stopped working as well they are stuck in the down position. Now it plays nothing its just a red paper weight.

    Great set of feature but sound quality is average at best
    I compared these speakers to an equivalent priced single speak - mono sound smaller Bluetooth speakers and to my surprised the smaller speaker sound quality was far superior. I bought these speakers expecting a superior louder stereo sound, but upon doing a side by side comparison with all other variables being the same, i was shocked to hear my mono speakers made by Bem kick the snort out of these speakers in sound quality. it was just a warmer sound from the smaller unit, these speakers are loud but they sound like twitters only. If i did not have to pay shipping back i would personally send them back. I know that a lot of people expectations from small Bluetooth speakers are too high, I first thought my mono speakers sound was not all that, but upon comparing with these speakers i realized my mono speakers sound were great comparing to this set. i guess if you have nothing to compare with, they are OK.

    PROS: NFC, Two speakers, Stereo

    CONS: Loud sound but lack of base, no forward or rever buttons to skip songs

    Perfect for my use
    I bought this speaker for one basic purpose. To listen to streaming interwebs radio and podcasts when I'm in the shower. I've paired it to my Samsung Galaxy S4. The NFC functionality turns the bluetooth on my phone on automagically and pairs it to the phone with a simple tap.



    It has ample volume for talk radio to be heard over a running shower. The sound quality is excellent for my purposes. I can't really speak to whether it would blow you away with every note of Bohemian Rhapsody or another bit of music, but it's more than adequate for casual listening.



    Volume can be controlled on the phone or on the speaker.



    I've been surprised at the battery life. Listened for hours on end, never died on me before I charged it back up.



    Bonuses:



    - Crystal clear as a speakerphone, according to my wife, who was on the receiving end of the conversation.

    - Adequate volume for use in the car as an internet radio speaker, for those without bluetooth functionality on the car stereo.



    PROS: Compact size and light weight.

    Ample sound output.

    Easy pairing.

    Long battery life.

    Built-in microphone turns it into an adequate speakerphone when my paired cell phone rings.

    The speaker talks to you when you turn it on, and when it pairs / unpairs, so you know what's going on.

    CONS: Does not fly.

    Failed to make me smarter or more breathtakingly handsome than I already am.

    HOME. RUN.
    This is the BT speaker I've been waiting for. Own the Jambox, this is every bit as good in my opinion. I've bought the other BT speakers and been disappointed by the humming noise, and overall build quality. This addresses all of those issues and for a crazy low price.



    Now I'm just waiting for a "Big Brick". Seriously guys, you might as well put me down for a pre-order now.





    PROS: Perfect.

    Great sound

    Easy controls

    Fast/easy pairing

    On/Off switch, microUSB

    The price



    NO HUMMING NOISE!! :)

    CONS: None. Seriously.

    5/5
    I am extremely pleased with the NFC Brick speaker. You cannot beat it for the price. I have several friends with the more expensive speakers and while they do have a better overall sound quality they cost 10X what I paid for the NFC Brick speaker. It is perfect for my needs! Compact, functional, great battery life, easy to use and sounds great.

    PROS: Quality for the price
    March 18, 2014
    Nice
    As advertised. Bluetooth syncs real fast with iPhone. Sounds great for how small it is. Good battery life. No complaints for $40.

    PROS: Easy Bluetooth sync. Well made. Good battery. Nice sound.

    4/5
    It's worth the price, but still a PITA when the squeal comes on

    PROS: Small, very portable, NFC makes pairing very easy

    CONS: + and - buttons change song, not volume. Battery life sucks (charged for 18 hours, lasted 3 hours playing music). Random high-pitched squeals when charging

    Nice design, okay sound
    I own a few other Bluetooth speakers, including the Zooka ($100), a Sound Pop, ($25) and the TDK A33 brick ($150). The TDK A33 is by far my favorite speaker, with a full bodied sound in a relatively small unit. My least favorite is the Zooka, which has the least appealing sound of all. This Monoprice speaker fall somewhere between the Sound Pop and the TDK A33. It gives out plenty of sound, though at high volume its frequency range is too limited to appreciate.

    However, given the low price of the Monoprice speaker, I can overlook any short comings. The light weight and rugged design make this speaker easy to take to the beach or to the back yard hammock.

    I have yet to use this speaker as a speaker phone. I don't use that feature very frequently. Another reviewer might have better thoughts on that.

    I've only had the speaker for a couple of days, so I can't comment on battery life. But, given that it uses Bluetooth V4.0, I expect the battery to last a decent amount of time.

    My iPhone 4Sand iPad 2 are not NFC compatible, so I can't comment on that feature either.

    Overall, I'm very happy with this speaker.

    PROS: Good volume, sufficient enough for a mid size room.

    Not much distortion at loud volume.

    Nice design, non slip feet.

    Not too heavy.

    Great price!

    Pairs easily via Bluetooth V4.0, especially after the initial connection has been made.

    CONS: Limited fidelity range. Bass is lacking.

    At loud volume, the quality of sound is tinny and can get tiresome to listen to.

    It's more than a brick.
    For a brick, it was a steal at the price. But it isn't as impressive as other monoprice rebrand products. I would still recommend this product to any one looking for a brick speaker. Although do not expect any lows.

    PROS: Sturdy feel. Great sound. Aux in. Very loud.

    CONS: Lacks bass. Basically it has no low range. The bass is pretty much all from the mids.
