I loved the fact that not only was it waterproof but ...
I had first ordered one going off the recommendation of my friend. I loved the fact that not only was it waterproof but it floated as well. This was great, I had gotten it two day shipped just in time for my camping trip. Excited and ready to use it I quickly found out it would not turn on. I had gone through a process with Altec Lansing and they said I had received a defective speaker and would need to send it back and get a new one. After getting my second one I was happy to find out it worked, might not have been the color I wanted but it would do. Now that I had a speaker that worked I found out a few flaws that I was unhappy with. For one, whenever it is turned up a good bit if there is a slight bit of bass the sound of the speaker will become quite. I understand why this is happening but I have had other speakers, smaller than this and just as loud and this was no issue. Secondly, with my brand new iPhone fully updated the Bluetooth range is good for about five feet with nothing between it. I even my hand is in the way it will start to cut out. Minus these two flaws, overall this little thing is great. It's awesome for kayaking, hiking, biking, camping, etc... Good sound quality and it get pretty loud besides when there is bass. My buddy now has a Mini Life Jacket 3 and it had no flaws so far. Overall I'm alright with this product, I wish I would have spent a few more dollars though and bought the 3.

Absolute crap. First one charged once
Pieces of junk! The charging ports collapse in to the speaker, and you are no longer able to charge them. Happened to 2 separate speakers we ordered. Absolute crap. First one charged once, and broke. Second one lasted a bit longer, but had the same problem. They work great when they do, are water and drop proof. But the crappy build of the product, and the inability to charge them makes them useless.

Bluetooth speaker that can be charged reliably over time. High volume is not necessary.
Was a great speaker for 4-5 months, then the speaker's charging port fell into the speaker, so it could not be charged. Was a good speaker, not great. Altec sent another speaker under warranty, it is apparently one of their best speakers. The new speaker does not have the edges & is looks more durable, but once again about 60 days after we received the replacement, it stopped charging. Ont he good side the newer speaker was a very good speaker, but once again, if you can't charge the speaker it doesn't work.

I have used it on a handful of rides and am very pleased with it
Bought this to use on my bike during RAGBRAI. Unfortunately plans changed and I wasn't able to ride this year. I have used it on a handful of rides and am very pleased with it. The sound quality and volume are excellent. It pairs easily with my iPhone.

The speaker quality is really good, and the fact that I can just take to parties and on runs without fear of it breaking when dropped is a huge relief. But the fact that it has to narrate its entire life like a poor Morgan Freeman impersonator gets old really quick. Not to mention that it never actually turns off... Even when I power it down, the speaker still gives out a quiet static, and because it is still producing noise the battery is still draining. Also I have only had this speaker for 3 months and sometimes when it connects, it won't play the music for a minute or two.

It offers great sound with little to no distortion
This is a very impressive little speaker. My son purchased it and carries it everywhere. It offers great sound with little to no distortion.

Be leary and read reviews
Arrived on time but only used it once if you want to call it that because the sound kept breaking up. Ended up returning it because could not fix by resetting.

Pretty cool. I'm liking it. Connection to Bluetooth is easy peasy. I'll use it for camping when I wanna listen to some great tunes.
Well built, and I like that it's everything proof, ha!

Good sound quality for a small speaker
Good sound quality for a small speaker, nice to cart around with me while camping. Main thing that I would i could change out it is the annoying and very loud "POWERING UP, WELCOME TO ALTEC LANSING" auto greeting that plays each time I turn it on. A small beep or something would suffice.
