    A shopper on Apr 5, 2017

    A shopper on Apr 17, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: I would not recomend this speaker for a large outdoor area like that. You will need to look at one of our plugged in active speakers like the APS line of 200W & 400W speakers. 2 & 3 channel mixers on board will accommodate line ins and microphones.

    Does it run on battery?
    A shopper on Aug 22, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: This speaker has a charger that plugs into the wall. It charges the speaker. As far as having to physically change batteries when they die (like when you have a remote); the answer is no. The battery life actually lasts a very long time. I went 3-4 days without charging it (including when I left it in all night by accident and until 3 the next afternoon) and it has yet to have a problem. I actually am very happy with the speaker.
    Is this a wireless speaker?
    A shopper on Jun 25, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: If you read its specifications, it should tell you that it can work via bluetooth..and that is one way of wireless connection.
    How good is the bass?
    A shopper on Aug 1, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: The bass is pretty good. I find the overall volume isn’t loud as I would hope in some situations, great for small crowds, but in a crowded event, could be better.
    Does this speaker plug in?
    A shopper on Aug 2, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: You can plug in an aux cable, pair it with Bluetooth. Now if you have a guitar or mic, you can definitely plug it into this speaker, as it has two jacks for a mic and or guitar. Hope that helps.
    How long does it take to get delivered in days?
    A shopper on Jul 19, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: Most deliveries should only take 2-3 days tops unless otherwise noted.
    How do u know when its charged. When cbarging...u olug it and have shut off?
    A shopper on Oct 14, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: It has to be on to charge and it will indicate it is charging when the power light is on. When it is charged the power light will still be in, but the battery level will show three instead of low or one. Does thus help?
    What is the battery life of this when unplugged?
    Chris V on Jan 13, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I use this in my car when I deliver pizzas and I usually get about 3 six hour shifts out of it. When it goes down to one green light it starts cutting out at high volumes. It's amazingly long for a battery powered speaker.
    Can I use Bluetooth Party Speaker play guitar?
    A shopper on May 15, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: Sure, you may want to front end with some drive if you are playing electric.

    Jon D on Oct 30, 2017

    7 Plus. I have two of these speakers for more than 4 years and have not trouble with them.
    What is the length of the microphone cable that comes with this?
    Derek H on Sep 15, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I don't remember the exact length, but I think it was around 10 feet or so. Good enough to get the job done, but not long enough to walk a stage. Great quality overall for the price. Could not be more pleased.

    A shopper on Aug 27, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: On power cord about 45 watts. On battery 25 watts.
    Is the battery on this unit replaceable by the consumer? If so, can you give the battery type to purchase? Also, can you explain how to replace the battery? If the power cord is lost or chewed up, how do you get a new one?
    Floyd B on Jun 27, 2017

    Ray L on May 22, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: It will pair if the mic is a bluetooth transmitter since the Party speaker only has a BT receiver.
    Can you pair two together for stereo?
    A shopper on Apr 24, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: No. Unless they have added an output.
    On the box it shows that the speaker comes with a remote control but there wasn't one in the box. In the product description there is no mention of a remote control. Is the speaker supposed to come with a remote control?
    A shopper on Jul 11, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. There was a revision to the model and there is no longer a remote control included with the unit. I do apologize for any inconvenience.

    Bluetooth Party Speaker
    For a consumer grade product, it's a well rounded product, reasonable price, does what specs claim. Make the suggested upgrades and I'd gladly pay more for an improved package. For the everyday consumer, I highly recommend this product!

    PROS: As with everything I buy from Monoprice, I'm very happy with my purchase. It does everything I want in a portable music speaker. The Mic inputs are a nice addition. The price was right & the Norco Overnight Delivery can't be beat! Started using it right out of the box - no need to charge the battery. 1st use was at a Memorial Day party and it played all day with plenty of power in reserve.

    CONS: Just a few suggestions for future models. Do something about the bad hum when no player hooked into inputs. Upgrade that paper cone speaker to a polymer design. Upgrade the mic jacks to industry standard XLR jacks so that longer mic cords could be used. The last thing would be able to interconnect with other units for bigger events.

    Great but quirky
    This is a good product, but could be made GREAT by fixing simple human factors issues and replacing the paper woofer w/ a polymer to make this more durable in outdoor locations. The claim to be used outside is dubious, especially upon rain and concern of the SLA battery on direct sun or higher operating temp (this will kill the lifespan). The microphone is surprisingly good, however the sides are open (water again), so this is ripe for destruction on first sprinkle. Adding cloth would eliminate this. A sliding plastic cover on the electronics panel would protect it from moving and rain. I grew up hauling equipment for my families bands, and make no mistake this is not professional grade but consumer, so for that market I think it's a great product. I would be VERY careful with this outside, it was just not designed for it, and especially in direct sun and rain.

    PROS: The price was amazing and the device performance is adequate for what it is. Nice touch on the luggage handle to roll the device. BT range excellent. I bought this to be run poolside, but on further inspection I don't think its ready.

    CONS: This is a human factors nightmare. The volume to control BT is the aux, which is in a different location than the BT controls. Only 1 of the 2 Mic inputs are balanced. NO visual on the panel to tell you that. There is lots of amplifier noise on no input (caused by decision to decouple aux from main). Once the BT signal comes in, better. USB seems to have lots of noise, regardless. The biggest con is this is a paper woofer. As most know water (outside) and paper don't go well. This should really be replaced w/ a polymer or the like woofer. Pairing the bluetooth on restart requires you to push the button (not automatic). The gloss plastic protecting the parameter should be matte. The knobs are too deep (breakage). It is going to take a beating.

    Excellent Portable Sound System and PA
    We've had our Monoprice "Bluetooth Party Speaker" for several months now and thought it was time to make a review. I've raved so much to friends and family about this item, it seemed I should share my experiences with everyone.

    We use this party speaker almost every weekend. Makes doing yard work much more enjoyable! I connect my iPhone 6 plus via Bluetooth and we jam to Spotify! The party speaker will last all day and has plenty of volume. It also sounds pretty good. The unit has (2) Mic inputs, RCA inputs, USB and SD card in addition to the Bluetooth. Plugging in a mic makes this an instant portable PA system or karaoke machine. You can independently adjust the input source and mic level. The included mic in my system didn't work, but this was little concern as I had another one available. I didn't take the time to contact Monoprice support to try to get another mic.There are two mic jacks, so if you have little ones or want to do duets, you'll want to grab another mic.For about $20, I don't think you can go wrong with the Behringer XM8500. Just don't forget an XLR to 1/4" cable.

    For the price with the features and everything that's included, I've been thoroughly pleased. Overall the unit is very well built, sounds good and has excellent battery life. Only real con I can think of is the lack of a storage location for the mic(s) / remote / charging cable. I considered the other party speakers out there, but I'm glad I went with this one....only wish I would have bought two of them!

    PROS: Plays all day on one charge, tons of inputs, great sound, fantastic value, no power brick

    CONS: Included mic didn't work, only pair one BT device at a time (not unusual), no storage for mic/remote

    Battery stopped charging
    I purchased the speak a few months ago only using it a couple of times. I went to use it for a birthday party after charging it most of the night only to find the battery was dead. I then monitored the charge throughout the day and it would not charge. Very inconvenient and disappointed in unit. The few times it worked it worked great!

    PROS: Easy to pair with android and iPhone portable usage

    CONS: Weak battery life Heavy unit
    April 30, 2016
    This is an awesome product. I was looking for this product on your website for the last two years, I came close to buying one from another maker but I'm glad I waited for Monoprice to make this product available.

    PROS: Bluetooth is quick and easy. Battery life is amazing, I played it for 5 hours straight and all three battery power indicator lights on the side were still lit up. I love this speaker, it was a great buy. Love that it came with a microphone and remote control.

    CONS: So far no cons.
    March 20, 2014
    Im pleased with this purchase,its going to help provide nice cook outs for my family and friends this summer.

    PROS: Really nice well built speaker with microphone and remote control. Sound quality is very good at any level.

    CONS: None
    March 27, 2014
    This bluetooth party speaker is awesome! This unit plays all genres loud and clear. We use it at my grandson's baseball games to announce the batters and play their walk up songs as they're coming up to bat. They play week end tournaments that last all day and into the evenings on Saturdays and Sundays. The battery has never failed us. We also like using it for karaoke, cook outs and fun at the park. This unit delivers everything they promised it would. We really love using it and it's portability!

    PROS: This unit is very loud, clear and portable. There are many ways to connect your audio devices to it. The battery seems to last forever. It's very easy to operate. You get complete volume control of all your music devices and microphones.

    CONS: There are NO cons with this unit.
    April 15, 2014
    Exactly what I wanted-AWESOME
    Love it. Already been using it on camping trips, at the pool and on the deck. Easily portable with the wheels. I'd like to see a weatherproof cover as an available accessory to protect it from the sun, sand and moisture.

    PROS: Decent price, fantastic quality. This thing is exactly as advertised. Immediately out of the box and I was listening to music and the kids were singing along. All quality construction, easy to understand or set-up. Heavy unit.

    CONS: Nothing really. It does lose some sound quality (distortion) at max volume level, but not a deal breaker.

    Party Speaker

    PROS: This is an excellent product, it has a great sound, easy to control and love Bluetooth. This speaker sounds great outside, other speakers I had tried got muffled outdoors, but this unit has plenty of power considering you can run it on its own power. I would highly recommend this product to anybody.
    August 26, 2014
    Pretty good for small applications
    This is a great little speaker if you need portable audio with reasonable volume. I bought this as an alternative to buying a second Ion Blockrocker (which I have had for a few months). As far as I can tell, this is the exact same product with some cosmetic differences, and a few small functional differences. I tested them side-by-side today and they were more or less identical in volume and functionality. The benefit is that the monoprice speaker is cheaper. Plus it has one more mic input.

    I like this speaker pretty well. It's great for simple portable audio. Not great with microphones at higher volumes, but if you don't expect too much from it, it'll be fine. I really love that it has a mount built into it for mounting onto a speaker stand. I wish it had an audio output so I could easily daisy chain two of these, because they'd be nice and simple to put two or three of them on stands to cover a small venue with battery-powered speakers for an event.

    If you don't expect TOO much out of these, they'll be great good for small to medium-sized gatherings, and exceptionally portable. I'd recommend this to anyone who wants a nice, simple, portable loudspeaker with a bit of extra functionality and good volume.

    PROS: Battery-powered. Multiple inputs. Good volume. Speaker stand mount is a nice perk.

    CONS: Distortion at high volumes using the mic. Wish it had an output so I could easily chain multiple speakers.
