Consumer review by: Jim V from St. Charl (

Fairly good


good for a small bedroom or office. Pales in comparison to the Phillip Fidelio, UE or Altec Lansing models I enjoy. All those are suitable for a large room, garage, or out on a deck...much more sound

Price was outstanding, $35. If you pay more than $60 for this you have overspent. Bluetooth feature is a great bargain price.Decent, but not outstanding sound. Hsve three other similar MP# players that all sound much better, although all cost much more...

mid-frequencies are adaquate, but highs and lows are only fair compared to the competition. Don't expect a lot of bass in a unit this small, but many reviewers are raving about the units bass as being the case in my opinion. I do expect...

Piece of sh* t, do NOT buy.



Avoid this piece Panasonic of cra p ; It does not allow me to select play lists from my iPod. The only way to get this thing to function is via the controlling of the iPod via the Panasonic's remote. Then the only option is to play my entire playlist!...

Big bang for the bucks


Great ipod dock and loud too. Bluetooth works great even I bring my phone downstairs. Bought it for $45, but it's now $5 cheaper. Highly recommend it

Nice and looks modern design

Doesn't work with windows 7


when connected directly to to an Iphone 4 it sounds decent

No rechargeable battery. Doesn't work with Windows 7 or 8. Tech support isn't any help. Sound quality is extremely poor over Bluetooth

You get what you paid!


If you looking for decent speakers and like to listen loud, this is not for you but if you looking for a modern look and price (on sale), then get it. I turned the volume halfway and it sounded like someone was beating on a plastic container. I'm owned...

Nice looking, remote and price

Sounds really bad

Great speakers


Great price point for great sound quality.... I use it with my LG Android and my wife's great!

Great speakers... i read on some other feedback that the customer couldn't pair it after it was paired with another device (you have to use the remote to unpair devices, probably another way to do it, but I didn't read any directions, the device is...

None so far

Bluetooth works on my iPhone 5 , 7th generation iPod nano, and iPad 3. You can change bluetooth inputs by pressing the remote control link mode/pairing button and selecting the panasonic -05 in Bluetooth settings on the iPad/ iPod / iPhone.

Sounds great. Plenty of bass. Bluetooth wireless and aux input ; I was really impressed by how great it sounds for such a small box ; Remote control

No screen information on the panasonic except a color bar ( blue for Bluetooth)
