Hard to Beat for $20!

Good for what you pay


The speaker is easy to connect and use and it has a nice quality of sound. For the price, it can suit your needs if you aren't into the higher end machines and just want a device to play your music out loud.

Easy to use, good price, nice sound quality

Utilizes batteries that must be replaced

Consumer review by:

Not very good


I thought this would be good for outside on the deck but there is no volume control and it's not very loud.I guess it would be ok for some background sound. Battery cover was really hard to get off.

Nothing really

Hardto install/change batteries

Love it, just one big problem


I wasn't aware that this item didn't come with some kind of wire since I will mainly be using this for my laptop. I tried it with both my android phone and ipod and it works great for both of those, even though you have to awkwardly stand your phone on...

Looks Great, Great Sound, Easy to use

No wire, No volume adjust
