Looks better than it sounds
Purchased

I got this to plug into my iPhone 6 Plus in the bathroom to hopefully fill the room with sound a little more than the phone by itself.

First, the speaker itself is very nice looking. It's hefty and the wood is beautiful. A simple back panel provides inputs for audio and a proprietary charging cable that's USB to something that looks similar to the old mobile phone chargers. (MicroUSB would have been a better choice in my opinion to save from having yet another charger in the house.)

Second, the audio quality. Better put, the lack of quality. A big disappointment. In my use, I didn't find the speaker to be any warmer or louder than the iPhone by itself. I'm not certain I'll put it in the bathroom as I had planned, but if I do, it'll be for looks alone. The phone sounds better and is louder than the speaker. Unfortunate.

Terrible
Purchased

Item doesn't work at all, doesn't play sound, just crackles. Terrible. Total waste of money. I would not recommend buying this to anyone.

should be called a portable static box

This speaker, though wonderfully sized and visually attractive, is perhaps the worst quality speaker i've ever used. This box just gives off static randomly, and for random periods of time as well. It gives off long, shrill sounds and completely distorts the sound that it is amplifying.

Had I not gotten it for free, I never would have purchased it. At this point, free is too much as it is effectively a paperweight.

Looks great

This is a great looking speaker. I didn't notice that it didn't have Bluetooth but jack works fine but it is kind of short.

Get with the twenty first century

Sound is fair, but really, a wire hookup!? I don't use any accessory, including headphones unless they are Bluetooth. I thought the age of wires was finally over.

Poor quality

Found this to be quite disappointing. The speaker cracked for songs with higher bass. Looks great, but just does not do the trick musically.

I wanted to love this, but alas it was a cheap product that apparently just wants to appeal to my design sensibilities. The sound was terrible and it was just completely lackluster in every way. Would not recommend.

Stop selling this
Purchased

The sound is AWFUL on this speaker. I hooked it up to my phone and it pops and hisses the whole time, and there's nothing you can do to fix it. I tossed it. What garbage.

Wasn't very loud or of high quality. Fine for short uses, but not worth stand alone purchase
