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'd seen one of these at my doctor's office and it was about four times the size of this one. I didn't check--as I should have--dimensions posted here because I just expected they were all the same size. Having said that, I don't mind that it's compact, although my doctor's sounds better. Still, sound is quite good, with a decent bass, given the size of this thing.

My biggest gripe is play time vs. recharge time, both about three hours, maybe four for play at lower volume. You can't run this all day, at least not via Bluetooth. And delay before using again is three hours, time it takes to recharge.

Otherwise, I've been having trouble with the Bluetooth connection. It works--eventually, but I keep having to mess with the connection for some reason.

My other gripe is the fact of two power-on and -off switches. Why two? That makes no sense to me. All in all, it's okay but overpriced for what it is.

    Comments about Big Blue™ Live Wireless Bluetooth Speaker:

    My husband loves his Father's Day present. It helps liven up areas while he's doing honey dos. At times it disconnects from the Bluetooth connection for seemingly no reason and takes a while to reconnect. However, it is a good sound quality for the size and price.

          I have a Jawbox and it has great sound also. I like the Brookstone better - has a better bass response. Plus on the Brookstone you can fast forward songs from the speaker. The Jawbox does not have this feature.

                        Comments about Big Blue™ Live Wireless Bluetooth Speaker:

                        Overall it is a good speaker, but with one major annoyance. On several occasions the close proximity of the top buttons has caused them to stick and resulted in malfunction. Sometimes when the Power button is squarely pressed, the volume goes down instead of the speaker powering off. On other occasions, also when the Power button is squarely pressed, it acts as if the Speakerphone button was pressed and REDIALS THE LAST PHONE NUMBER I CALLED! This is especially annoying because it usually occurs at 5am when I am leaving for work and I have to immediately run to my phone and cancel the call. I see no reason to ever make a phone call from a speaker and wish it didn't even have this feature.
