I could see maybe using this in the bathroom? Or in a small kitchen? Never found out. Immediately gave it to my roomie.

Poor Sound Quality
Sampled

This speaker had really poor sound quality. As soon as I started using it the speaker cracked and hissed, making the audio sound like recorder player with a bad needle. This interference was intermittent and would crack and hiss every 30 seconds or so.

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.

Cute little speaker
Sampled

This is a new little speaker. It's nice that it's rechargeable and stores the battery inside. However because it's so small the sound is also pretty small. Also the fact that you need to be plugged in kinda takes away from it in this world of bluetooth speakers.

Meh...

This product WAS great. I have a lot of "mini-speakers" and as far as sound quality goes, this was the best. The biggest flaw is in the design. I charged this product about 5-7 times, and then it broke. The internal box was thrown out of alignment, and now the audio cable does not enter accurately, nor does the power cable. right in the trash.

Janky and not as cool as it looks

I really wanted to like this product, it looks awesome. But the battery life is too short, the speaker is tinny, and the connection is out of date (mini-usb when everthing else is micro?). I honestly prefer the sound from the my smartphone or my passive portable speakers to this.

Loved it ... while it lasted.

I really like quality speakers, and thats why my friend gifted it to me.... but it only worked after three uses. I don't know what the issue is if I just so happen to get the defected one or what, but it doesn't charge or play music...Nothing! I was extremely disappointed because it was working fine even though the light on the speaker didn't seem to work but it played music and then it just died on me or something.

Feedback...blah

So when I saw this, I was thinking to myself, finally a good looking and functional speaker. I was half right. The speaker is not much louder than my iphone and feedback is terrible. Sound quality is garbage and I am no sound snob either.

Worked great while it worked

The Triple C Speaker was very exciting to see in my box, and I was glad to put it to use. After about two months, the panel on the back into which you plug the cables came unglued from the box and I had to glue it back in place, which was fine.

However, a couple more months have gone by, and now I get a loud whining feedback on it whenever I use it. Disappointing. Until that started, it's been the best minispeaker I've ever used. Now that it's started, it's useless.

Sounds great, but connection point is poor

The first week I was in love with this item! It sounded great, good volume, quite impressive!. However after that it became clear the connection point for the audio input wasn't soldered correctly and the audio began cutting in and out. Soon enough I couldn't get any sound to emit from the speaker :/

It may have just been a poor connection point on my specific speaker, but I wouldn't take a chance unless I knew for sure. Great concept and design...poor connection point execution
