Parrot BOOMBOX speaker

 

By far the best bluetooth speaker I've come across. I had a Blueant M1 previously and had to send it back due to appalling sound quality.

Ease to setup up

Slightly steep on price

Works with Unibody Macbook Pro built in Bluetooth in Leopard OS X 10.5 and up, also used in BootCamp and again works dongle fee in both Vista Premium 32 bit and Windows 7 64 bit.

Works with Unibody Macbook Pro built in bluetooth in Leopard OS X 10.5.6

Research before you buy - great sound, ease of use!

 

People on here need to do their research before they buy a product then find out it doesn't work well with what they have and give this product a bad review. I knew my device was A2DP capable so I wouldn't need a dongle or cables for streaming, ......

Extremely easy to pair and play with my Haier Rhapsody Ibiza which has A2DP bluetooth capability, wonderful, rich sound, stays connected with no distortion or clips as long as you stay within 30 feet of speaker

Only con with the Ibiza is volume cannot be control by my device, you do need to control it through the speaker. Small price to pay for a great product

Excellent Bluetooth Speaker for those familiar with Bluetooth Setups

 

As a brief background, my bluetooth experience began with the Sony Ericsson T68i cell phone in 2003 and a jabra bluetooth headset. Since then I have used bluetooth to sync a Palm T3 wirelessly with a PC, transfer data to and from other bluetooth...

Excellent Audio (dependent on bluetooth source), Easy to Connect to PC (dependent on user familiarity with bluetooth setups), Solid construction, Aesthetically pleasing form, Simple controls

Requires a basic working knowledge of bluetooth's strengths and weaknesses

If you're running vista with an internal bluetooth card, think twice before you get this boombox. I've spent days of time playing with this device to get it working properly. It connects to my computer at random and loses the connection when I leave...

The sound is ok if you can get it to work

Getting it to play music from your computer will take hours and hours of frustrating work

good for PC users, worthless for MAC
