This portable speaker was deemed The Best by the Hammacher Schlemmer Institute because it produced the richest, purest sound and had the longest transmission range. During testing, The Best Portable Bluetooth Speaker delivered the highest quality sound in every genre of music, from easy listening to heavy metal, emitting warm melodies and hearty bass without the shrillness and distortion that plagued lesser models. With a single button, the user-friendly device connects with a Bluetooth-enabled player such as a smartphone or laptop, and Institute analysts found the long-range speaker maintained the connection and clear sound well beyond its stated 30' range. The Best model remembers six devices so repeated synching is not needed, and it has an auxiliary port for connecting standard music players. Sleek and lightweight, The Best Portable Bluetooth Speaker has a durable anodized-aluminum case, and its seven-hour lithium-ion battery recharges in only three hours with the included AC adapter. 7" L x 2 1/4" W x 2" D. (1 1/2 lbs.)

balanced and fair
from Oxford, on the Shore of Maryland
I use the speaker as the primary sound output from my laptop while teaching. It fills any size room up to auditorium size. The base output is smooth, the mid-ranges are adequate and the highs are well balanced- not too much, or too quiet either. I do use one application (inexpensive) to match the sound to the source. The size of this speaker is amazing compared with the presence it commands. Presentations with music and sound bites suffered prior to this set-up. Best of all is the size, which fits nicely into the rolling case I use to carry most everything I need for teaching. I bought the protective case for the speaker and power cord and found it adequate and heavily built where it counts. Battery life, on a full charge, using Bluetooth, at a bit over medium volume is at least 4-5 hrs. I have not used it continuously for longer, but suspect that the estimate of seven hours is not out of the question. The bluetooth range is more than adequate for distances of 30 to 40 ft. if there are no hard obstructions. In all I have found this to be a speaker worth the price, heavily built and suitable for good to excellent sound quality on a wide range of applications. I have a larger set of expensive portable speakers that are no better than this one. I could use a bit more crispness in the 20k frequency range, but do realize that this is not my home set-up.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Size doesn't matter
By Randy The Consumer
from Western Colorado
I use this speaker to bring top sound quality to whatever environment I may find myself in, from the living room to the shop. The magic of the technology that surrounds me is brought to fruition I believe with this small device. I take it with me wherever I go, take it out, press two buttons on it and tell my storage device to find and use it as a speaker and just like that, out comes rich undistorted sound. I will never know how it all works, that's the way of technology now days. That it does work, as advertised, and that the retailer guarantees that it will do so for as long as we both shall live creates a marriage that all consumers long for but seldom find. Don't mind me, I'm a practicing writer and do go on at times. The bottom line is this: Bose makes great sound reproducing devices and they have managed to do it again in this small, totally wireless and very portable speaker.Hammacher Schlemmer has taken away the guesswork and fear that is so much a part of buying anything in this "buyer beware" environment that surrounds me. They have done the homework, its the only way they could stay in business it seems to me. Sell things of Quality and guarantee that they will work, period. Its pretty simple and what I expect, but rarely find. Now, if they would only sell food...

Best Portable Bluetooth Speaker
I bought this for our recent road trip and used it all the time in the car and anywhere we go. It is very portable and power last a long time, several times we used it for more than 8 hours without charging. I loved it.
Love it. Only difficulty is adjusting the volume.have to press down hard on the button. Great sound.

The best portable speaker for travel!
from Beaverton, OR
I travel quite often, and this speaker is the perfect size to carry with. Despite the size, it is quite powerful especially in the bass range. Audio is reasonably balanced for its size. I have gone through a few portable speakers (JBL, Logitech, Jawbone Jambox, Beats) and this easily bests all of the them. Fantastic product, premium and well priced.
