The best musical experiences in life are shared—and we’re not just talking about the Pearl Jam concert you attended with your buddies in the early ’90s. Whenever you want to hear the music played loud—at the beach, say, or in a hotel room—a good bet is this snappy-looking Portable Speaker. Available in design-centric zebrawood or rosewood finishes, it promises to please both your inner DJ and your inner aesthete.
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
A handy lil box of sound, but once you lose that power cable you'll find yourself lost at the local Fry's asking the 20-something where you can find the right cable for an item that he's never heard of. When you have the power it puts out some good sound, but I've found better in equally as small - but not as stunning - mini speakers.2
Was super stoked then this came in the monthly box. Brought it to the beach to listen to some tunes, great hit. Then day #2 at the beach, bring it out again, and it broke....the headphone jack embedded itself into the speaker. I was really looking forward to bringing this thing out on the beach all summer...what are you gonna do.2
I was stoked to get this in the monthly box. I have another small speaker that I use daily with my phone and I thought having two, especially one that looked this sleek, would be nice. The problem is this one puts out a ton of static no matter what i try. It also doesn't produce any bass compared to other speakers you can get for less. Overall it was a disappointment that's now just a decorative piece with a cord hanging off it.2
I had a pretty favorable previous review of this speaker. I mentioned that when plugging in the USB charger that the inputs seemed to loosen up a bit on the back and "sink in" to the wood, but this did not affect performance..
Just now, my third time using it, I went to plug in the headphone jack and the connectors on the back recessed into the wood so much that I can not plug it in far enough and make a connection.
The speaker is now useless. I think some more thought should have been put into making the back of the speaker not only seamlessly blend into the natural wood, but also support the constant "in and out" pressure of the charging cable and USB charging cable.
The look, the size, the unique and very diverse performance areas this mini jukebox has make it nice to the eye. Honestly, the actual performance, the sound, the movement of air, the quality of enjoyment seemed to lack. love the idea, just needs a little improvement.2
I read everyone's rave reviews and I just don't agree. Perhaps I got a dud speaker. It hums and crackles. I have an iPhone5 that I play through it and it takes a few times of unplugging and plugging it back in to get the humming and crackling to stop. Waste of time.2
It's good in a pinch or on the go. Great design. There are plenty of other on the go speakers that can do a much better job with sound and life. But if you need something really portable this might be a good option.2
The sound is very tinny and quiet for me and I wouldn't recommend buying it.2
I really like the feel and look of the speaker, but there's no where to put it. Music is already portable in a bunch of different ways, and the sound quality--while solid--isn't good enough to make me use it all the time.2
