" ...  Sounds better, more crisp, and clear than the echo plus. ... Already very happy with this speaker. ... But, it's ok because I am rating this speaker based on sound quality and I am happy with it. ... I haven't had any crackling noises so far. ... The sound is almost on par with my echo plus 2nd gen if not right there with it. ... This speaker does the job.  ...  "

" ...  4/4/19 - So the speaker decided to stop working on me. ... So reliability is also a major flaw along with the sound quality. ... The sound quality and aesthetics is what I will be focused on. ... I guess the overall compact design didn't leave much room for better speakers, because the sound quality of the the device was rather underwhelming. ... It's simply a louder version of the 2nd gen echo dot sound with not much improvements. ... Overall I don't think its, worth the $50 price tag due to the average sound quality.  ...  "

" ...  I was only getting sound out of one side until I made sure the audio was connected correctly. ... Definitely a huge step up from the second gen echo dot by itself. ...

comment
" ...  When plugged in, the battery never charges over 25% and flashes forever. ... There is a fatal flaw in the design that system power draw of the echo and speaker exceeds the charging rate recommended for the speaker. ... Meaning, after about being plugged in for 12 hours the speaker dies and needs to slowly recharge.  ...  "
