For the price, size, weight and sound I have not found a better speaker for traveling. Great for hotel rooms, sitting by me at the beach or pool or in a small conference room as we are preparing meeting materials. I travel a lot and have used a bunch of portable speakers. In the end they are generally too heavy or too lame on sound. This is the best compromise I have found - very good sound in a incrediably small package. Blue tooth connectivity is very good. Setup is a bit fidgety but okay. Has master power button on the back (good to know it is truly off when packed). However the top on/off button is a pain to use. With all that said I am still very happy to own this unit on the road. Speaker placement when using it is critical to getting the best sound - look to place on hollow wooden/metal boxes like file cabinets, book shelves or dressers - better bass response and overall sound reproduction.

I'm not going to comment on the sound quality as many before me have written extensively on that. Decent sound for a low end speaker. My main issue is with how it was designed. First, it does not pair with multiple devices. I have to forget the device on my iphone to use it with my ipad. Much cheaper speakers I've owned pair with multiple devices. Seems like a no brainer. Second, you have to turn the switch to on located on the back of the device, then you have to hold down the power button located on the top of the device for a good 7 seconds or more before it will turn on. Why? Just turn it on or off with a button or a switch. Not sure what the thought process was behind this. Same with turning it off. You can just flip the switch on the back OR hold down the button again for 7 or more seconds until it beeps off. So odd. Finally, it only charges if the switch in the back is set to on. I'm not sure why that switch exists or why they designed it with the on button on top or why it requires that you hold it down to turn it on or off instead of just pushing the button once. This device was not well thought out. I'm tempted to dismantle and use the parts to build a new speaker. That's probably the best use for this device.

Doesn't work with Windows 7

      Comments about Big Blue? Live Wireless Bluetooth Speaker:

      When it does connect with my laptop (rarely - have to go to control panel every time you start up), the connection was full of static. Gave up on the bluetooth connectability and tried simply using the RCA jack directly, but it doesn't work as a speaker - only play at about 20% of the potential volume because Windows only recognizes it as a headset. No driver support or technical support is available for this.

      Works OK with my iPhone but that's not why I bought it.

        Comments about Big Blue? Live Wireless Bluetooth Speaker:

        First I will address a review that says you can't connect to more than one bluetooth at a time. That is false. I was at an outdoor party and one of the people wanted to use their music on the party box, so i just turned off my bluetooth, he turned on his and synced it and it worked flawlessly. I like the sound, how it is easy to move around, its small and the battery lasts forever. I think we played it for over 8 hours for our party. Everyone at the party liked it but had one request... they wish it came in different colors (meaning the light)

              Comments about Big Blue? Live Wireless Bluetooth Speaker:

              product is unusable as it has a flaw in the bluetooth connection process. It can only be connected to one bluetooth device at a time and must be physically disconnected to one device before it can be re-connected to another device. If unfortunately you lose/misplace/break/have stolen your phone and do not get the opportunity to physically disconnect the bluetooth connection to the Big Blue, the speaker will not allow you to re-connect to a different phone. you now own a paperweight, not a bluetooth speaker.

                This seems to pair properly with an iphone, however, with my MacBook Pro and MacBookAir it is never able to pair or find the device. Have watched all video's, read the instructions (not terribly complicated) all to no avail. Would not recommend. Based on others' experiences it seems like a great device but not good if can never work or so complex that you need to make a phone call to customer services to work it out. Don't recommend at all! Find something else!

                      So bought this because i blew the speakers out in my car and so I could go hands free when driving. Now that I got a new car, this speaker has become my beach speaker. The charge is decent; then again, i not using it all the time. I got it in white and i did notice that it did get scuffed pretty fast, but I bought the pink skin and that solved the problem. Perfect for the person on the go who wants to have their tunes.
