Sound isn't lost when outside. Portable, small with big sound

Base is not deep enough but then again it is a portable sound dock

Consumer review by:

"Not worth the cost!"

 

Good Bass. Compact Model. Nice appearance. Loud for it's size

Way Over Priced, No bass or treble controls, Clumsy to carry around, Sound is not as stunning as expected

The rechargeable battery really pushes this portable speaker over the top. It can be easily taken anywhere such as a the backyard. The mono in and i pod dock also are some added bonuses. The remote controller is easy to use and helpful

In the review it mentions that it doesn't have a clock or radio. If you have your IPOD or IPHONE docked, why would you need either? Great comment about the price versus competition, but you need to realize you pay for proven quality. Atec lansing is...
