Purchased to update audio and communication in my 1998 corvette. Now I can listen to Pandora and my own tunes via Bluetooth. In addition, I have hands free telephone usage. Very simple to set up and use. Neat design. Only draw back is the limited bass. Overall a great item for the price. Oh, after enjoying on the way to yhe beach, I take it on down to the beach with the cooler and towels.

Purchased this item from a store that was closing and all sales were final.:( I was apprehensive about the sound, but the sales rep illustrated the sound in the store. The sound quality was decent. However, I did notice that it took a while for him to pair with the device. Now that I have had time to play around with it, I have discovered that it does not connect automatically after initial pairing as indicated in the instructions.

Once paired with the speaker, it should automatically recognize the device from that point on. Well, if there is another device connected, it will not. If music is playing, it does not stop as indicated in the instructions. Thus, phone calls do not take priority over music playing and the music does not pause and so the speaker has a problem with multiple devices being connected to it.

Another issue is that it does not speak the name of the caller as indicated, even though the number and name are listed in the contacts! Instead, the tone and the "answer" or "ignore" command are the only sounds received. The only thing that does function properly on this device regarding incoming phone calls is it does recognize the "answer" or "ignore" command.

Stop the press!! Just recognized another issue and that is the iOS device does not indicate the speaker batter life indicator when paired to the speaker. Lastly, if you think that "basic voice-recognition technology for hands-free operation" means that you can make calls by speaking to the speaker, think again because it does not recognize any voice commands other than the "answer" or "ignore" commands.

It would have been impressive if this device would have operated as advertised on the package. It is a nice speaker, but disappointed with all of the other features that do not work and having to go back and forth with repairing with the device! In conclusion, I would not recommend this speaker unless it was a closeout and much less than the full price as it was when I purchased it.

Comments about Big Blue Go? Wireless Bluetooth? Speaker:

I mainly use this for my car ride, phone conversations and music entertainment. I tried many Bluetooth speakerphones and this is the best, loud and clear on phone conversation. Voice "accept" or reject" on calls. I download many my favorite music pieces to my cell phone and I can enjoy them freely during long drive without use up all my data usage. The only problem is the holder suction does not stay good on glass and fall off a lot!

Comments about Big Blue Go? Wireless Bluetooth? Speaker:

This is just what I needed for studio shoots. I pair it up with my Droid and play Pandora for hours. If I get a call, it's simple to manage. Very convenient.

My only complaint is that the suction cup mount is terrible. Doesn't work. The ball-and-socket are flimsy, and the suction cup doesn't stick to anything for long

        Comments about Big Blue Go? Wireless Bluetooth? Speaker:

        I bought this speaker for myself and instantly loved the sound quality and portability. I use it to steam music and videos from my ipad every day. The only negative thing about it is that after a few months use it won't take a charge. It just quits charging, like that, overnight. No warning. I don't know if it is the speaker, itself, or the charging cable. I have returned this speaker to Brookstone three times (each after only a few months use) and they have replaced it each time. However, it is disappointing to have to go through this exercise every few months! The only reason I do it, at all, is because I love the speaker that much! However, I am about to give up; and the folks at Brookstone are probably tired of seeing me!

          I use this speaker in my car. The mount works great, stays in place and holds the speaker securely with no difficulty placing or removing. Sound quality is great for a compact speaker this size.The voice command for answering my cell phone works perfectly and is very convenent. Makes those long drives seem shorter.

              Comments about Big Blue Go? Wireless Bluetooth? Speaker:

              I was skeptical about this - got it as a gift for Christmas. Didn't really understand what it was for, so I just now took it out of the box and tried to connect it to my old school work blackberry - success. Called a friend and they didn't realize I was talking to them through a speaker (i.e., no "speakerphone effect"). The sound quality on my end was excellent as well. I then tried connecting it to my ipad and streaming my playlists on Pandora - amazing. I've used Bose SoundLink Mobile in the past and, I can't believe I'm saying this, but I liked the soundquality, ease of sync, and functionality of the track skip and volume buttons on the Big Blue Go BETTER. Excited to put it in my car. Long story short, this device is both impressive and fun to use. Suprisingly so given the price and the fact that I haven't heard about it before. I guess that's why I'm writing this review. Highly recommend.
