I own this speaker. For what it does it does very well …for a mini BT speaker. Use cases: on a towel at a beach, on a desk when studying, in the middle of table seating 4. It doesn’t get !loud!, not even close to loud. the 4 at the table will be able to converse with at highest volume. Anywhere you need volume just for people seated very close to it. But it’s light, small, solid construction and goes a long! time between charges. One negative: it tries to punch above its weight in bass. It does but the problem is at full volume on some songs, a bit of bass punch coming from a very light device equals the bass vibration dance off the edge of where is is placed.
