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.

            It is a pain to turn on and off. It disconnects after each song plays on pandora on my blackberry. Not sure if it is the speaker or BB or Pandora, as I haven't used bluetooth speakers for this combo before. It basically renders itself useless bc I got it to listen to Pandora (after returning other fairly useless and overpriced brookstone items I received as gifts).

              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.

              Comments about Big Blue™ Live Wireless Bluetooth Speaker:

              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:

              I absolutely love my Big Blue Live. It's small, lightweight, has great sound quality, looks nice, is durable--almost everything I could want in a bluetooth speaker. It's also not super expensive, which is great! The cute little skin that you can buy is durable, easy to put on, fairly protective, and has nice color options. The speaker charges quickly, notifies you when you have low power, and has these cool little blue lights (although the lights are really annoying if it's dark in the room because there's no way to turn them off...).

              I don't like that you can only have one device paired at a time, so if I've been using the speaker with my iPhone, I have to pair it with my MacBook Pro before I can play music from my laptop. It also takes a long time to turn on, requiring you to hold down the power button for a while.

              All in all, this little speaker is great! I love the sound quality and it's pretty easy to pair your devices, too. I use it every day. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone! Get the cute little skin-case thing too. It's worth it! Brookstone definitely hit the nail on the head with this lil' guy!

                I gave "Big Blue" to my husband for Christmas, and he loves it! He's a pilot,does a lot of traveling and his new speaker is one of the first things he packs. He has a collection of beautiful music saved on his phone. Now he has access to it everywhere he goes, and he can enjoy the wonderful sound quality that "Big Blue" provides!

                    My wife wanted to listen to music in the kitchen. As a professional in the audio industry, I could not stand most of what I found in the way of small speakers. I was pleasantly surprised by this unit. Its bigger brother sounded better, but the size of this one was the winner. The sound output is moderately accurate to the source without too much attempt at hyping the bass, etc. The bluetooth sync'd up pretty quickly with her MacBook Pro and iTunes was feeding us one last listen to some Christmas albums.
                    I have yet to measure the battery life but it is nice to be able to just unplug it and place it anywhere. Of course when it is boundary loaded (next to hard surfaces), the bass is enhanced. Can't call it audiophile but these picky ears can actually listen to it and enjoy the music.
