Handy, but don't expect to party like it's 1999

Several years ago, I paid about $100 for a JBL speaker that allowed me to fill a room with music streaming from my phone or computer. This is a different animal altogether - perfect for streaming news or podcasts (why I bought it) or possibly to stream music at your desk at work at a low volume. At $15 and free delivery with Prime this is solid.Last year I paid about $30 for a small speaker with comparable specs from Cambridge Soundworks. Admittedly, the latter looks nicer and feels more substantial. But I don't see much difference in terms of sound - I think the frequency response and bass (or lack thereof) pretty much line up. The battery life seems to be comparable too.I've had good experiences with Amazon's standing by their warranties. Even though this doesn't break the bank, I count that as a plus.Bottom line: I doubt you'll find anything appreciably better for under $40, and I doubt you'll be bringing the house down for anything less than $90 +/-. This works for the office, kitchen or patio and is more than adequate for podcasts or for streaming video.

I'm oldway old and have a 35% hearing loss. Jimi Hendrix's ""Foxey Lady And All Along The Watchtower"" sounded fabulous on the lil speaker (without my hearing aid). It's built well and the sound far exceeded my expectations as well as did the electronic indicators.

Small but great sound

I was very surprised at the size of the speaker, maybe not reading it enough but it is small. So I charged the speaker, turned it on and paired it with Echo Dot and started off with some easy music. THE SOUND was AMAZING for the size of this speaker. Range is great for my place which is small but divided really weird, around walls for kitchen and bath but this speaker sounds great in all rooms.The speaker is very great for the price and size.

Fine for music: Unusable for audiobooks.
by Valued Customer on July 15, 2018

If you are streaming most music to this speaker, it will work fine. Anything with intermetant pauses like audiobooks however, will be a nightmare. Why? I looked into it and the answer is complicated.The bluetooth protocol has a feature where when streaming audio, the channel will ""open"" and ""close"" depending on whether or not sound is coming in. It makes sense because if your phone is connected but not actually spitting out any sound, why bother putting power into the actual sound-making part of the speakers? Just have the receiver be powered and wait for sound. Then once it detects ""oh hey, I'm getting sounds. Time to actually start making noise"" it opens and the speakers power up. The channel stays up until a certain amount of silence and then it goes back to sleep. The threshold for how much sound is required for it to go ""open"" and how much silence it takes to ""close"" again are both properties set by the manufacturer of the speaker. Not the transmitter, the receiver.In an effort to squeeze every bit of battery life out of this thing that they could, Amazon made the noise threshold high and the shutoff time small. That means it spends less time ""open"" due to false alarms that music was playing or extra silence after you're done streaming. In theory the result is more battery life as long as you are using it to stream continuous sounds.Here's the problem. If your music has spots of silence, or you're listening to an audiobook, these two things combine to constantly open and close the channel mid-stream. The opening is not instant, and so the first half second or so of the sound after the silence is cut off. With audiobooks, pauses are fairly frequent. That means INFURITIATINGLY, the beginning of nearly every sentence is cut off. Some small quips fall through the cracks entirely, and now the character in my book who has lots of one word replies is relegated to silence. Which was confusing before I figured out the problem.I want to be clear, this is not a feature inherent to all bluetooth technology in general. I have other bluetooth devices that do not do this. It is the manufacturer settings on this speaker specifically that do this. There are other culprits like car bluetooth audio as well, but most devices do not have this problem. Unless they're cheap and want to pump up their battery life via software without upgrading the hardware itself.For a lot of people, this will be a non-issue. This design decision will improve the battery life for like 95% of users, but for some specific users it will make it utterly unusable. I suspect this is a trade Amazon is happy to make, and I don't blame them at all for doing it.

Loud and long battery life

Extremely loud compared to other blue tooth speakers I've had. I work in a loud auto repair shop and everyone can hear it over all the noise. Another great thing, the battery lasts a super long time. It will last over 2 days-8 hours each and almost highest volume. Incredible speaker.

When Quality Matches Price. Good Item
by Valued Customer on June 01, 2017

Let me start by saying this. In a world where every company makes a blue tooth speaker, it is hard to find an item that matches quality with it's price. This is one of the few speakers where the price meets quality. Is it GREAT, NO, is it GOOD YES. It has good sound range and decent bass. Connectivity is good and battery life is incredibly awesome. The fact that you can also control volume on the speaker by using the speaker itself is a plus. You have 2 options of turning off the speaker as well which helps sometimes, I recommend turning it off through both options (meaning the power button on top of the speaker and on the back). What I also like is the option to use AUX. I recommend this speaker for personal use either at home or outside. Dont expect it to be on the level of high end models, but it does the job and is easy and enjoyable to use.

Great value and reliable speaker.

I have had this speaker for about five months and use it daily at work. I primarily use this in my office, linking to my iPhone for music or podcasts.The speaker is still working beautifully and it usually holds a charge for two weeks with spontaneous use during the work week.Quick charging by USB and the ability to connect to my PC via the AC is great.It is not too much louder than a tablet speaker but it is louder than my iPhone 8 speakers.If you want to use this while running equipment it probably won't serve you well. But it works great for a 200 sqft office space.I would highly recommend this over the more expensive options out there because of the value, quality, and portability.

Best deal

This is a super worthy deal for holiday season. It is better to compare to see the value. Last year, I paid $39.99 for a nice sound insignia bluetooth speaker followed its link []This Amazon speaker sounds even louder and provides more bass. Also, the playtime is two hours longer. what is more, the price is just half of what I purchased last year. I bet this will be best seller this year, and you deserve this wonderful deal. Definitely share with you all!

I'm Speaking Up

For the price, I was pleasantly surprised by the sound quality as well as the volume you can get out of this little speaker. It connects easily. It's not real big but puts out big sound. And it's not staticky or tinny or muffled.it's crisp quality sound. When I have it set up in the bathroom on medium volume, I can still hear it ok in another room 20 feet away. Recently I was ironing clothes and had music playing through it when my husband called and he could hear me perfectly fine through the speaker and I could hear him perfectly fine, and that was with standing like 5 feet away from it. I'd recommend this speaker.

Great speaker for the price!

We have bought far too many blue tooth speakers. They work for awhile, and then stop or they cut in and out. This speaker is great, has good sound for around the house and my daughter has stolen it for herself. I am actually about to buy a second. I'll admit I was hesitant at first as it is the same in price as others I have purchased in the past and found lacking. I am glad I gave it a chance.We have been using it for a little over a month, and it has surpassed our expectations.

Great little Bluetooth speaker. I got it as a separate speaker for the Echo Dot that I got for Christmas. The Echo recognized it quickly and it sounds fine (for the price) and works at a good distance.

No boom box sound here..BUT!

I am very happy with this purchase. It fulfills my expectations. My laptop is from 2010 and I wanted to be able to watch Netlix etc. but my laptop speakers would not go loud enough. I got sick of wearing earphones in order to hear the dialog. I also like to listen to NPR while cooking dinner and my phone didn't go loud enough. This speaker does exactly what I wanted. I think it's kind of cute too. I bought the cable with 2 male ends for connection (on Amazon too) I don't think my phone or my laptop has blue tooth. I mention this as this cable is not included. It does include the cable for charging, connecting to the cell phone or laptop though. LATER- Well! Guess what! I figured out how to use bluetooth! Wonderful and so easy! I'm going to upgrade this to 5 stars! It's a steal for the price!
