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.
