"TRIED A BUNCH OF OTHERS - THIS IS IT"5.0 starson by SemperFi1985
Pros: GREAT SOUND
SIMPLE OPERATION (NO WASTED BUTTONS)
DECENT SIZE (NOT TOO HEAVY BUT STURDY)
Cons: None that I can think of. Some may be put off by the price, but it really is worth it (if you enjoy your music).
Summary: I've purchased multiple speakers for use in my office ranging in price from $15 up to $100. While some sounded "ok," none really had a full sound. While I thought about the Jambox (sounded better than anything I had heard), it didn't sound $130-$199 good. This Soundlink is GREAT. I use it mostly in my office, so I keep it a low volume. However, even at low volumes it carries the bass well and fills the room without sounding too loud. I also use it at home in the living room, kitchen or office. It fills a room well. I don't think you'll be having any parties with this device - it can crank, but not CRANK. That's not why I purchased these speakers, so I'm beyond happy with them. It was $269 well spent (purchased a military exchange). If you enjoy hearing your music clear with detail, this is the device for you.If you don't like bass, then this may not be the one for you. I don't think the bass is too much or overpowering. My wife commented she prefers less bass. However, every time she walks in the room she says, "Wow that sounds good." I have noticed the further I am from the speaker the bass dissipates (e.g. outside open area or other side of the house). If you plan to use this in a small area expect BASS especially if you have the speaker against a wall. The closer you have the back to a wall, the more bass effect you seem to get. Let me say again - I don't think the bass is overpowering at all. The sound is very clear and there is no vibration. The sound is well contained and VERY clear. I loooove this speaker.
