" ...  The sound is buttery with the right balance of treble, which most fail at, to match a potent bass.  ...  "
comment
" ...  The speaker "recycles" the bass produced by the end drivers by using 2 passive radiators and the result is startlingly deep bass. ... It also has midrange speakers and tweeters, so you get a full range when you're listening to music.  ...  "

comment
" ...  The 2nd time I wanted to test it in water as I am going to be going on a few boat parties and wanted to make sure it floated and would be ok if it fell into the ocean off the boat. ... The test went well and the speaker played all day long at the beach.  ...  "

comment
" ...  Had the UE mega boom and many of the top brand blue tooth speakers and returned them almost immediately for how bad they preform for the price but this speaker delivers all the way I can bring this to work and not have to worry about charging it all day which is amazing and bringing this out with friends everyone always gets amazed by it.  ...  "
comment
" ...  A few other small details that I like about this speaker is that it has support for both AAC and aptX Bluetooth codecs. ... Both are superior to the standard SBC codec used by most Bluetooth speakers. ... The Bluetooth range is also very good at 120 feet.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Turns out one of the best decisions i made was when i was at Best Buy and saw the price of the Bose speaker and decided that if i was going to spend that kind of money, I was going to do a lot of research instead of just plunking down $250 and taking the name i know.  ...  "
