Pros Excellent, rich Sound!
I have yet to find a genre of music that doesn't sound fantastic on this thing.
Looks Retro & Amazing (white version)
Feels substantial - very well built!
Includes a nifty cotton carrying bag
Cons Portable, but it's hefty.
When switching devices, often I have to re-pair with my iPhone5 or MacBook Pro. HOWEVER, this is really simple! Simply hold down the bluetooth button on the speaker for a few seconds and re-select the speakers on your Mac.
Summary I did a great deal of research online to find the absolute best, portable speaker. I paid little attention to cost and a great deal of attention to sound quality. The only other factor I considered was portability. I was not so impressed with Jawbone and the only other system I seriously considered was the Libratone Zipp, (which also sounds great). However, the excellent sound quality, portability and design of the Bose won the day. It was just an added bonus that they looked sweet too! I purchased the white version for my wife and plan to get a second one for myself for travel.
(PS) Pairing with multiple devices (it can remember up to 6) is not flawless with Apple products, but it is very quick and easy and in no way a deal breaker.
"Great speaker!"on by peanutfarmer
Pros Compact, Great sound, easy of use.
Cons Heavy, not usb charged,
Summary Had this speaker for about 3 months and really like it. We farm for a living so we are outside working on equipment and this works great. News, music or podcast are just a button push away. Wish you could charge it with USB charger like the phones and tablets we use. Well I guess you can't have everything?
Pros Small form factor and clear, rich, full sound. Long lasting battery.
Cons Small, small con: A little heavy when you want to carry around, but very portable.
Summary Really love the sound of this portable device; Bose hit another one out of the park!
Pros Very good sound quality
Well defined bass, mids, highs
Battery lasts a lot
Cons Sometimes I have to use the Trebble boost to get the bass balanced. Nothing to get you worried. It's always good to have bass and not need it than not have bass at all!
Summary Go ahead and buy it. Despite the fact it's a little expensive, it is worth it!
