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.

      Comments about Big Blue™ Live Wireless Bluetooth Speaker:

      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.

                    Comments about Big Blue™ Live Wireless Bluetooth Speaker:

                    My wife got this for me to play music from my phone in the house or on the go. I can't say how well it would have worked because it was defective out of the box. Even if it had worked it doesn't appear that it can run indefinitely plugged into the wall, but rather, it appears to only run off the battery which limits it's in-home usefulness.

                    To Brookstone's credit the return will be easy and they've said they'll give a full refund, but electronics that come defective out of the box are rare and are usually a sure sign of poor quality.

                          I was given this speaker as a wedding gift and it simply doesn't work. LED's light-up but bluetooth connection cannot be made, and audio mini auxiliary also did not work.

                          Was a hassle to redeem in Brookstone store, and then never worked. I would try to return but fear they would only send another non-working model.

                            I just bought this yesterday at a Black Friday sale and got a good deal. The salesperson couldnt figure out how to work it and I wish she did then I wouldnt have bought it. After charging it up, the bass is SO loud, it was vibrating on my desk that I could barely hear the music. I tried turning down the volume and it was the same. That is getting returned asap!

                              I'm a 17 year old girl, I BLAST my music nonstop and this is perfect. I get complaints from my parents saying that I use it too much. The battery life on this tiny speaker is amazing as well. I can go two weeks without having to charge it depending how long I use it of course, but usually not for 1 1/2-2 weeks. I saw a lot of complaints that people couldn't get their phones to automatically connect and that made me hesitant but I have had no problem with it. I have multiple devices on my blue tooth list but my phone recognizes it immediately. I love it.

                              Looks nice, but sound is LOUSY and sound is what it's all about. Amazingly the little speakers in my MacBook Air are far better than this all too expensive device. Wish I could get my money back. I can't use it.
