4 Stars - Bluetooth SoundPEATS 10W Speaker
This little speaker is pretty cool! It had enough battery to use it right out of the box so I hooked it up and started using it. I don't have a sound system in my car so I used this (just sat it in my passenger seat) and it put a good volume and fairly good sound in my little car.
I've currently got it sitting on my desk at work. It has a speaker all the way around, so it is perfect for putting in the middle of the room or on a coffee table or something.
As I said before, the sound is pretty good but not perfect. I heard a little bit of background grain/static in certain songs, not all of them... The volume controls took me a second to figure out (you have to twist the ring) but from what I can tell it gets reasonably loud.
Here's a video of me playing with it:
The only issue I have is when I hit "play" on my device, the song starts exactly at the beginning. But when I have an album or a playlist going, it hesitates for just a second at cuts off the very first second of the song (which is annoying but not a huge deal).
Now the listed price on Amazon is $69,99, which I think is pretty high for the speaker. It's currently on sale for $39.99, which is a pretty good price for what you're getting. Honestly I'd probably only buy it for $30 unless it was waterproof. But so far I've had several SoundPEATS headphones and speakers, and they last a long time and the quality is good, so I'd encourage you to stick with the brand if you can!
