It's robust and well constructed - does the trick.
Bit larger than the Flip4 from JBL and so may not be able to have a third party case like the flip4 - not quite as capable sonically....but as it was half the price and performs almost as well it receives a four star rating from me. It sort of peaks out at bigger volumes with bass / treble, but for most works well. Rugged look and feel. The black controls on a black background don't work for me. I ran a thin silver 'sharpie' line over the main controls so I could see them on the beach.
Excellent little pod, big sound! Don't love the startup/end sounds, pretty jarring/annoying. Sound is clear and crisp. Haven't tested the waterproofness yet, but I'm sure it's great. All in all a great speaker!
This speaker sounds good by itself, but paired with another takes the sound to another level. These sound as good as the UE booms at a much lower cost. These speakers also pair with my devices automatically in stereo after being set up the first time.. I mostly use these while streaming music.by my pool..
The sound quality is better than I expected. I use it for 30min per day while I'm getting ready in the morning. The battery lasts long enough. It is loud enough to use while I'm taking a shower. I'm happy with my purchase!
