Ultimate Ears Power Up Charging Dock : Simplicity to charge

Much easier to use this charge stand than the alternative of plugging in the charge cable in the bottom of the speaker.

The speaker is still waterproof when the d-screw is put into the speaker.

Really makes charging a breeze and keeps the speaker upright. Just pace the speaker on the stand after changing to the silver d ring supplied.

Works really well with the speaker, nice sleek design and a quick charge.

  • Should be available in black!
  • Hellishly overpriced but does the job
  • Must have accessory!

Ultimate Ears Power Up Charging Dock for Blast and Megablast Portable Wi-Fi/Bluetooth Speakers, Compact Design, Play Music While Charging – White

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • Always ready to go: Keeps your speaker charged and ready for any adventure.
  • Works with: Ultimate Ears BLAST and MEGABLAST portable Wi-Fi / Bluetooth speakers with Amazon Alexa built-in.
  • Convenient home base: Makes charging your speaker easier than ever.
  • Listen to music while charging: Blast tunes or ask Alexa to crank the volume, check the weather and more.
  • Sleek design: Fits into any home and looks stunning with any of the BLAST and MEGABLAST colors.

This item is ludicrously overpriced. Its literally a small d-ring for the speaker and a plastic disc to sit the speaker on; you need to use the charging cables supplied with the speaker, so you really are getting not very much for your money. That said its a much more practical way of charging your speaker and as mine is in near constant i’ve accepted the fact that i have been knowingly fleeced. So five stars for practicality and 1 star for taking the piss on the pricing.

Must have charger for your blast.

Essential item for a megablast – 4 stars as it should be included as standard with the megablast.

Ideal if you need an easy option of properly charging the ue blast/mega blast speaker with amazon alexa enabled.

Is what it is, saves messing with cables, 4 stars as not cheap.

If you have a blast or megablast that’s in regular use, and what’s the point of buying one if you are not going to use it, then this power-up is essential. You change the locking screw from black to silver and then you can stand the speaker on the dock for charging so it is always ready for use. You can also charge whilst listening. My one obvious gripe is that i wish they did a black version to match my black megablast – but to be honest you don’t really notice the white colour that much.

Wirelessly charges megaboom, so much easier than plugging it in.

This product made my life so much easier. Being able to just pick it up when i am leaving for elsewhere and being able to just come back and put it down rather than fiddling with cables. Another great use is that when you have the speaker on the dock its always turned on making it easy to use alexa whenever you need to. The quality of the docks is quite hard and feels very robust, and seems pretty tough to break. I have been using mine for a few months and i would most certainly say it’s worth the price.

A little expensive but simple to use. If you want convenience charging for a megablast or blast speaker on the go this is for you.

Bit pricey for what it is , but that’s the only negative i can say.

This product is ideal, saves unscrewing for charging, just makes like that little bit easier.

Should really be included with the megablast – it’s not a complete package without it.

This makes charging your blast so quick and easy, just stand it straight on base, less fuss.

Designed to do the job it does. Little pricey but you only have 1 option.

Very expensive, but the item is fine, only reason for bad review is because for a charging dock, its so expensive.

GGMM Bluetooth Wireless Wi-Fi Airplay Speaker, small but very high quality sound. support alexa too.

We loved this speaker very much. Good sound quality to use at home and outdoor. Light weight with long battery life. My daughter loves talking to alexa. It’s a good ‘toy’ for everyone in the family. Only downside is that it takes about 30 secs to start up each time. We probably purchase more to build multiroom system.

Like the size and lightweight of this speaker that easily to carry along anywhere i go in my backpack. The sound is really great and the bass too,very worth for the price.

I’m really quite impressed with this. Alexa works ok, you have to press a button, but my mum is a bit freaked out by alexa always listening anyway, so no issues there. I would recommend this if you’re looking for a handsome smart speaker.

Comments from buyers

“Black Oval Smart Speaker, The speaker is excellent in relation to its sound quality and versatility, Excellent Alexa Assistant – and a decent speaker too!”

Connected it up and absolutely fantastic. Great sound and does everything it says it should and is superb quality. Best present that i purchased for myself.

Great system real class,the quality is tops the sound is brilliant,and the service from this comanys staf are the best,5 stars for the equipment and 5 stars for the staff wonderful company.

This speaker can pack a punchfor it’s very portable and discreet size, the sound is very loud and clear, it’s actually louder than my computer speakersit works beautifully over bluetooth or wi-fi, and it’s amazing how it can connect and interact with spotify. And it’s so easy to install, all you need is the app and a wifi connection and you’re good to go. The range is great, i no longer have issues listening in my shower if my phone is in the kitchen as with most speakers. Battery life is amazing too. I’ve charged it once when i received it and haven’t need to recharge in a week of using it about 2-4 hours per day. I really love the easy to use controls, the etched buttons make it easy to use even in the dark and i like that the led is not too bright so it doesn’t bother me at night. Overall i am extremely happy with my purchase.

I was a little concerned when i purchased this product that the price was quite high for an alexa device which was only a mini portable speaker – in the same way that the echo dot is only a mini portable speaker essentially. However, my concern was misplaced because this speaker has massively exceeded all of my expectations. In our recent sunny blast in england, this speaker worked fantastically out in my garden and one of the problems of alexa is that you have to be in a room with a device, well no longer. Provided you are connected to the internet, you are good to goin terms of sound quality, this far exceeds the echo dot which is a relatively good value speaker in itself, and at parties this goes down a treat. If i had one complaint, it might be a touch too expensive given its relative size and maximum volume, but it is certainly a very useful device to have for the day to day.

Arrived exactly as detailed. Easy set up straight out of the box. Connected to the internet straightaway and the app is easy to use. Have only connected through airplay at the moment, and haven’t had any issues with that, so i can play all my music through amazon prime and apple music, plus all that’s already stored on my phone. Good to be able to adjust base and treble. Very good sound and it gets pretty loud. I’ve only had it a couple of days, so can’t say much about its longevity, but it seems very solid and of a good quality. May end up with more of these around the house.

The ggme speaker arrived in attractive packaging,it gives off a deep, good quality sound. Easy to pair on bluetooth with your phone, and also can pair with wifi connection too. It’s not the smallest speaker in the world but it’s the right size for me. Very pleased with this product, specially when you go out with family, just put into your pocket, what a amazing.Really worth for what you paid for .

This speaker is really compact as well as the sound quality being both loud and clear. How could such a small speaker be so high in quality?. The battery life is absolutely amazing and i’ve used it one too many times whilst being in one of my 40 minute shower sessions😂. We all need our quality time and music is an essential in our mundane lives and this amazon speaker puts the cherry on top of the cake. Would recommend to anyone and everyone looking for a durable, and all round amazing speaker. Can i just mention that since the speaker has been so well used, i’ve had a few clumsy accidents with it. Doesn’t this show how durable and portable and just how amazinggggg it is?. 100/10 would buy again if i broke it.

Really like this product and it’s links to amazons alexa. The fact it can intergrate with services such as tune in and spotify is brilliantcrucially, the sound quality really is spectacular for the size and price point, and i really appreciate the physical dials on the top for changing the treble and bass. The build is excellent, it is solid with a pleasing weight and the design is stylish. The battery life is also excellent. This speaker is absolutely worth your money.

The material is a bit more shinny than i was expecting as i was hoping it would be the same as the material you can get with some of the other echo devices which the photo advertised appears to be. I was looking for something that would boost the sound of the dot without having to pay a lot of money to upgrade to the echo or purchase a sound bar that you have to worry about charging. Overall sound quality is good and loud enough to easily fill the bedroom it’s in. You lose some of the quality on volume 10 with some songs played, however volume 8 and 9 is still loud enough. I actually got off to a bad start and had some initial issues, trying to play music straight out of the box, and it kept beeping. I charged it for an hour and its been fine since- so remember to charge it when it arrives. When connected on my phone, it actually shows the speaker’s battery life on my phone screen, which is very cool, and i have never seen beforesound quality is really good, especially on vocals, in which it beats the wonderboom. Genuinely sounds like the singer is in the room. The wonderboom is slightly bassier, but the k1 has good enough bass for sure. I wasn’t sure what the ‘360 degree’ sound thing meant, but i get it now- it sounds like its a surround sound speaker.

Great little speaker, was impressed with sound quality, was great for our nice days of weather and using it in the garden. The alexa feature is a good bonus. Speaker fits nicely in my hand, a great handy size, like the idea you can connect them up around the house, may buy another in the future to do this with.

Listening to music is good but a bit disappointed about not being able to listen to heart radio when i try to log in it asks for zip code and won’t recognise mine (southampton) other than that i like it.

Originally i thought it was a tad expensive but though i’ll give it a go as it has the smart feature with amazon alexa and i love this speaker. It looks great with the sleek design means it doesn’t look out of place in the homethe speaker has 4 x 5w speakers helping to provide deep crisp bass tones which easily fill a medium sized room, as well as feeling the bass through your feet. Along with the brown leather holder giving a nice touchhaving individual drivers for the mid/upper tone ranges helps to keep a clear sound which doesn’t get distorted by the bass. The smart feature i’m still figuring out but so far so goodoverall i would definitely recommend purchasing this speaker, excellent sound for the price.

I bought this product for my husband. Whether it is used in the living room or in the back garden, the sound of the sound is loud enough and there is no noise. It is very suitable for a small party at home,easy to carry and easy to connect to bluetooth very good product.

Fantastic sound for the compact size. Small niggles are the time delay to connect before playing so knocked off a star but that aside, well worth the money and is recommended.

It is small size and easy to carry around with relatively good sound quality. Glad it cimes with the alexa funtion but need to press the button to activate it.

Apart of tried few times to connect to wifi this speaker is great product. Lots of fun with this smart speaker. The voice is clear and loud. My son kept it in his room after i use only for two days.I like that wifi function which makes me easy to use. Now i can wake my son up by play the music through the app in my phone – even i am in the ground floor and he’s in 2nd floor.

The sound is brilliant for the size of the unit. So why only 3 stars, i was so impressed with the first one, so i bought a second one, that’s where things went down hill. Using the app to bind the units works well to set one for left channel and the other for right channel, however after switching off then on both units swith back to mono ‘both playing the left and right channel’ so you have to use the app to switch them back to separate channels. Also to conect to amazon music you have to use a phone or tablet to receive via wifi a app then use blue tooth to conect to the e5, why not direct via wifi like connecting to spotify. They were both quite slow to log into the internet, but now one of them will not conect to the internet. It’s a shame because without these problems it would be a 5 star product.

Simple to connect up, you do have to be patient and wait until it says router connected. We mainly use it play bbc radio 2 and its that easy – ‘play bbc radio 2’ and booooom it plays. Surprisingly loud and clear for a small speaker – it wouldn’t run a disco but in the kitchen playing the radio its magnificent. I bet we haven’t worked out half of the things we could use it for,.

I rally like the speaker it’s loud ,the battery it’s verry good. On bluetooth connection it’s fast and have a good range. I downloaded the app and conected the alexa, and it’s so fast and from app you can play songs from everywhere like amazon music, spotify, tune in etc.

Amazing speaker and fantastic clarity/volume from such a small item, can highly recomend this purchase. Also very easy to set up for a novice like myself, i shall be purchasing another one for the wife to use and yes you can conect them together if you so wish.

Bought this second bluetooth speaker for myself. I’m leave my phone charging in my first floor bedroom and connect this speaker on ground floor living room and it’s work. Especially the wife code as a bonus. Highly recommend this speaker.

ZENBRE tooth Speakers – Good value for money

Let’s get one thing straight, this is no b&o but for the price range it is a prefect outdoor speaker. I went hiking and cycling with it in typical british weather and the sound was as good and clear as if i was using in indoors despite the rainthe battery life is reasonable (2 days of moderate use) and what surprise me the most was how light it isi also have a jawbone speaker and used that most of the time but didn’t want to take it outdoor due to the cost. Now i might get into trouble here but the sounds quality was not far off considering it is cost 25% of the price of the jawbone. I found it charged quicker with a fast charger which is again a bonus as my jawbone takes the same amount of time regardless of the charger i am using. I am going camping in couple of weeks and am sure it will be great for that too.

Great value excellent product. Lovely powerful and portable.

Great little speaker ,fantastic tone. Really loud connection is great for my blue tooth devices,excellent purchase.

Cannot believe how good the sound is for something so small and for that price. Highly recommend this speaker.

Perfect for wh i need, smaller than i had expected but that better. Much much louder than i expected.

Very happy with the product, big clear sound at a very good price. Ideal for the bathroom and pairing with an amazon echo device.

  • Brilliant sound quality and power
  • Great value speaker
  • not any good for amazon echo or dot

Great design and excellent sound quality. It can be taken on holiday with you, or even for a picnic, the battery life is very good. Really glad to have purchased this speaker.

Absolutely fantastic speaker. Easy to pair, wonderful sound. I left the speaker down the garden in the summer house and i could walk 60feet away approx and still stayed connected. Would not hesitate in recommending this speaker.

Does exactly what it says and it’s so small.

Everyone in my office feels comfortable with the music this speaker plays. Never feel tired during hard working time due to the speaker.

A friend had this at a bbq in the garden and had to buy one after hearing sound quality. Everybody who has since been to my house and heard has purchased one.

People who hear the sound the speaker plays always ask me where i bought it and i of course recommended zenbre to them. They will purchase zenbre too.

Great sound , but one problem after connecting to amazon echo the echo went completely wrong and no voice. I think there was a compatibility issue with the speaker so amazon echo people beware. I had 2 echo dots , which broke after connecting this speaker with no alexa voice.

I’d been looking for a little while at getting another bluetooth speaker. I had a brilliant sony xb20 speaker but decided i need a cheaper one for using in my bathroom. I managed to get this on sale for the bargain price of £10. 70 and it’s definitely worth the money.At that price point i’m confident you couldn’t get a better speaker than this. Decent sound quality and volume. It’ll play music whilst being charged.

Fantastic, brilliant sound and quality, highly recomend to buy. Well worth the money, handy little portable speaker, quick and easy connect.

It’s lovely little speaker, i was have one my friend took. I am happy with this speaker work good sound very powerful and smooth.

【Bright Sound, 5W/45mm Driver】Stereo bright sound with double 5W/45mm driver and dual resonator makes the incredible audio performance, high definition boost your listening experience.

Great sound for the size of the speaker.

For such a small speaker its really loud and the grip is great makes it feel very sturdy.

Waterproof great for the bathroom.

Good little speaker with a surprisingly good sound. Very easy to use and set up and nice and compact.

Well impressed with it so far.

My brother always go camping with his friends,and he requested me to look for a proper bluetooth speaker for him. Yesterday he got the speaker and he said the speaker fits him well. The sound is loud enough to play outdoor.

Great little speaker with great power for it’s size – ideal for the garden or your holiday.

Delighted with this speaker. It’s so simple to set up and use. Sound quality very good and volume control, from low to high, is excellent. Very pleased with my purchase and would recommend.

I’ve only had this wee speaker for a couple of days, but i’m majorly impressed with the build quality, the sound and ease of use. It is head and shoulders above the more expensive speakers i already own. I couldn’t believe the size of it when it arrived (tiny), but it packs a hefty punch. I’m seriously impressed by this product and am confident it will last a long time, due to the rubberised casing and water and dust proof aspects. I’ll be purchasing another couple of these for gifts in the very near future.

I am so pleased with this product,has a very high quality sound even at high volume,feels robust and paired within seconds also looks smart and isn’t too big to take travelling. Highly recommend,very good value for money.

I’m really satisfied with this product. The quality of the sound is excellent and definitely worth with this price. Also, its not too big and perfect for the travel as well.

Excellent sound especially for the size. Very quick to connect to phone bluetooth.

Fabulous speakers, brilliant sound quality, well worth the money.

Great product, so much base it’s vibrates of the table, i purchased this at a discount but still well worth the original price of 26. 99 glad i didn’t pay for some of the mor exspensive ones on the market nowadays.

Easy to set up bluetooth connected quickly with no fuss. Looks rugged sound is good for a small speaker.

My boy loves it never stops using it drops the signal every now and then not sure why.

This really does represent astonishing value for money as the compact size combined with the huge sound really does impress. It came with a decent amount of charge too, which i made sure to hammer with an intensive workoutthe speaker connected with no issues to all my devices and belted out a truly immense sound considering the size of the unit. The build quality is excellent too with rubberised controls and a tough looking grill on the front – its resistant to splashing to soo its good for use in the bathroom or by the pool when you can eventually get back out in the sunif you place this correctly in the room you can get a pretty impressive bass response too.

Bought for my son work very well .

Compact with great sound this speaker ticks all the boxes and accompanies me in the shower with no problems.

【18h Play-time, Durable Li-Polymer battery】 A Li-Polymer battery capacity, make sure at least 18h Play-time from the built-in, high-capacity polymer battery.

Fantastic it is so much better than i expected for the price.

I purchased this zenbre speaker a few months ago so have now used it quite a bit. Good sound quality, bluetooths perfectly to a samsung tablet and phone and doesn’t lose the connection. Has a good range and charges quickly, retains charge when not in use and lasts well in use between charges. I’ve used it in the shower area (although not in direct rain or water) and it seems to keep it’s integrity in these conditions for the price i think it represents very good value.

Simply unbelievable sound from such a small unit. Shouldn’t be surprised as bought its small brother the cube and that sound was spot on too. Great for listening round the house and took it to a bbq recently and it stole the show.

This smallish bluetooth zenbre speaker is quite remarkable. The speaker arrived the day after ordering and it was well packed. The speaker is just what i needed to connect to my ipad and the sound quality is excellent.

This is not the best speaker on the market and doesn’t pretend to be, but i’m pretty sure for the price it is by miles the best and as good as a lot of the more expensive ones.

I’ve been using this speaker for 3 months now and its perfect for a budget speaker. It has great range, volume and battery life. It comes with 4 buttons (one for power, two for changing song and one for play/pause) but i would have liked a volume button too. Its very sturdy and durable and i have it with me wherever i go. At the price, i would definitely recommend this speaker to others. Why this speaker may not be for you:it cant go very quiet. I like to listen to music as i go to sleep but its just a bit too loud for meit doesnt come with an app. I would like to be able to see things like battery percentage (on iphone, when connected, it gives you a rough idea in the top right hand corner)the speaker is only on one side. It looks like its on both sides but if you want it to be in the middle of a group, point it upwards. On spotify, if you changer the equaliser so it has max base, the speaker cannot cope so it distorts the sound of the song.

I bought this for my partner and she loves it. For it’s size the sound is amazing with surprisingly good bass.

After using the product for a week i’ve found it just what you expect. However the volume does start to decrese with time but not majorly the cap that covers the charger port and aux port doesn’t shut properly. Quality product all together thougb.

Ultimate Ears 984-000559 BOOM 2 Wireless/tooth Speaker, Beautiful Rich Sound, Plenty of Bass

After reading all the reviews i have to say i am somewhat disappointed with this speaker. Yes it has good clarity of sound but the bass is non existent. I have sonos speakers in the house so i compared it to the sonos 1. Unfortunately the sonos 1 blew it out water, there was no comparrison to be had, the sonos was superior in every way, clarity, bass, volume. These two speakers are similarly priced. I also compared it to the bose soundlink and again i felt i had the inferior product, there is just so much more bass with the bose. If i could, i would have returned it and bought the bose. I have no idea why other reviewers think this is so good. I bought this speaker at half its rrp and still feel disappointed, i’d have been gutted if id paid full price.

Cheaper than the special edition ones being sold in john lewis on black friday for £95. Quick delivery, great sound for all of the types of music i have. Sleek design though you have to lay the speaker on its side to charge it via cable and wall plug. Comes 40% charged and charges up fully very quickly. App is a bit rubbish though that isn’t the seller’s responsibility, however, something buyers should be aware of. My main speakers are bose and this is a fantastic travel speaker.

I live on a boat so the waterproof feature was a huge selling point for me. I haven’t dropped it in yet but have cruised in heavy rain and not had any problems. The sound quality is great and the battery lasts a very long time. The bluetooth works a treat i hook it up to both my phone, and laptop when i’m watching movies. People have mentioned that it’s a bit chunky, and it is. It has a feeling of real quality to it. It’s clearly very well made. I’ve had my ue boom for quite a few months now and it’s been bashed around a fair bit and carried around in backpacks many times and it still looks great.

Comments from buyers

“If you want the best look no further, Great value, durable, well made, waterproof speaker with excellent battery life., Best of the bunch by some margin, ridiculous value.”

Recently attended a retreat where more than half the teachers were using ultimate ears speakers, with the boom 2 leading the way. Perfect for background music for work place or classes, as well as for social events – especially in party mode. The concept of having up to 150 of these units all synced together is incredible, and i’d love to see how it would work in a real world situation. Once you update the firmware on the speaker, you get great battery life, great sound and easy use with multiple devices. People keep asking me about it and where they can get one, so it sells itself. The waterproof feature is ideal for poolside, or for outdoor work. Mine has been rained on and covered in mud, and still works perfectly.

Good battery, has an aux socket which is great for phones with a built-in dac, and supports tripods and standswaterproofing is great, mine lives in the bathroom so puts up with a lotgood volume and good sound quality, i would say the best you’ll get for the money (i got on offer for £70 but would pay £100 and still think i got a good deal)doesn’t support the world’s foremost bluetooth standards but nothing does at this price pointjust don’t forget to turn it off when you’re done, because the auto off seems like a long time – but this will be a personal preference as i’ve seen so many that turn themselves off way too quickly.

Like all the reviews below say. . I’ve had 2 really good bluetooth speakers and they’ve finally expired. Read the reviews on amazon and online, all of which pointed to the boom2. I’ve learned that running your speaker in for a couple of hours isn’t a myth and it really does improve the range and especially the bass. 4 hours in, it’s everything the other reviews said it was. Amazing volume without distortion. Uncanny 360 degree sound which is hard to believe. Dithering and second guessing about a purchase is fault of mine.

For a single, standalone speaker, the sound quality of this speaker is surprisingly good. Volume can be turned up so that it is very loud, without ‘vibrating’, which is ideal for certain outdoor situations. I haven’t had it out when it is raining as it doesn’t look like it would resist a lot of water, so i can’t comment on its water resistance. A fully recharged battery lasts for up to ~6 hours. You can download an app so you can control it from your phone. I don’t think that you can control it in a similar way from your computer although i stand to be corrected.

Small in stature huge in sound, best of the bunch by some margin, tried a few including the bose soundlink mini 2, this is superior in every respect to my ears, playing spotify via the lower quality free setting from my laptop the sound is gutsy but never boomy, in fact bass is crisp & tight but also full powerful & punchy, mids are ridiculously expressive & detailed, top end blends seamlessly with the rest of the range, give it a good few hours though from new if you want to hear what this capable of, out of the box the sound is more restrained & hard, once those drive units have loosened up with use, this soon melts away & your left with a sound so packed full of musicality it beggars belief, havn’t taken it past half volume as yet, the sound is powerful enough at this level, having owned high end audio equipment for many years from the likes of naim & quad to name but 2, this purchase was both a delight & a wake up call, in fact if anyone has listened to naim gear they may enjoy this speaker, has that similar addictive, direct, solid presentation, i have listened to nothing else since, cannot recommend this highly enough, buy one, you will not regret it.

I’ve had minirigs for years, since they came out. Been through about 4 of them, while at the time i thought they were the best thing ever lately i have been dissapointed with their toughness. A drop from about 1 meter onto tarmac left 2 of the plastic cone mounting points shattered. Plus not waterproof, and the short round shape which does look nice is actually highly inconvenient for carrying. Searched around a bit until i decided to give ue a try, the boom2 seemed to be roughly equivalent to a minirig. Firstly the build quality is very high. The thing is properly tough, and waterproof. I have dropped it, splashed it, had it bounce around an all terrain forklift cab for over a week with absolutely no problems at all. Louder than the minirig, and definitely a better sound reproduction.

I’ve tried loads of portable speakers over the years ie bose jambox sony etc but none are remotely as good as these. .

LENRUE Portable Outdoor Bluetooth Speaker, Wireless Shower Waterproof Speakers Rechargable Stereo,with Hook,Built-in Mic for IPhone/IPad/Andriod/Samsung/Tablet/Echo dot (Black) : Super cool speaker for outdoor and hiking mvh d.

This little speaker is easy to pair with all our phones and tablets. Sound and quality is acceptable for the size and we have it in place in our bathroom. Making shower a fun thing to do.

Good sound quality also great volume.

Excellent product, initially bought this to take on holiday but we have been using this on a daily basis. The speaker is waterproof (kids dropped it in the bath a few times) and the sound this produces is awesome. Easy to connect and easy to use.

For such a small device i didn’t expect it to be as loud as it is. The sound quality is also very nice. Space for an sd card as well as bluetooth and aux connections. Overall a very nifty little speaker with good quality.

I personally use it in the shower and it’s just perfect. Amazing sound quality for such a little speaker.

Great speaker, great clear sound little bigger then i thought it would be, using it for my wife’s mobility scooter, easy to pair with her phone, yep overall worth the money.

This is one of the best bluetooth speakers i’ve ever bought, waterproof and fills and sound powerful, took it out yesterday for a picnic, the batterie lasted for 4h as it says on the manual, overall i’m so pleased with it.

Great product at a fantastic price. Will recommend to all buyers who are looking for this item.

I have couple speakers , but always want one small so i can use when i take shower , this small speaker perfect for bathroom , you can stiker at mirror anywhere , and sounds pretty good too . Very happy about this purchase.

Got this for my daughter to use with her phone for music. Easy to connect has a great sound.

It’s size and discrete colour are excellent. The sound is not as good as i had hoped and the instruction booklet is poor but overall a good product for money.

This is one amazing speaker. I didn’t think it would be loud as other models were pretty basic. But this sounds crisp and loud. Works well with my android phone and plenty of umpff when volume full.

Awesome sound from such a little box. It just works and for such a great price too.

You can drop it without worrying. It is also waterproof but haven’t tested this yet. Decent sound quality and you can pack it for a weekend away and it comes with a little hook so you can hang it from anywhere. Also such good value, i was thrilled with it and would highly recommend.

The volume is great, it’s been surviving my shower with no problem for the past couple of months, and the battery lasts quite a long time – i use it during my shower every day and i only charge it once a month or so.

So impressed with this little speaker it’s so light. . I wear it on my harness at work clip it on with the karabiner provided. The speaker is waterproof so this is good for me as i work outside. So easy to set up and connect to my iphone. The sound quality is amazing for a speaker. All round good quality bluetooth speaker.

VAUX Cordless Home Speaker wireless Battery : This speaker has turned the Dot into a great music player

I already have a similar battery device for the echo making it portable, but this goes that step further by adding a good set of speakers to the echo dot in addition to portability (around 6 hours of untethered power). For the discerning amongst you, there could be a comment that they are even better than the ones that are integral in the larger echo. Not of course as good as some of the (very expensive) speakers available out there, but miles better than the inbuilt ones in the dot and comparable, possibly even better, than the ones in the original echo. Taking the sound output from the echo dot itself is a dissatisfying affair. The echo dot was released to allow people to use their own speakers after comments that the original echo speakers, while good, did not meet the expectations of all customers. This is something that i did with my echo dot. Initially i connected it to a good set of bluetooth speakers (using bluetooth). The problem was the lag in the dot-to-speakers response when asking the dot a question. So i ended up directly attaching the dot to the speakers through the micro audio jack.

1 star less because i think it reduces alexas sensitivity to sound. I have two alexas in my house i speak to the one in my room with the speaker and it doesn’t respond, the naked alexa all the way in the other room responds.

VAUX Cordless Home Speaker wireless Battery for Amazon Echo Dot Gen 2 Black/Carbon

  • Enjoy up to 6 hours of portable run time with our rechargeable battery.
  • Dual 52mm Drivers and a passive radiator for impressive sound and bass
  • Compatible with 2nd Generation Dot
  • Use Amazon Dot’s Power Supply and Cable to Charge Vaux
  • 3.5mm Aux Input for use with external mobile players

Great item which makes your amazon echo dot portable for the garden or anywhere within range of a good wifi connection or bluetooth connection. Music can output a decent amount of bass for the size of the speaker. However clarity can degrade at higher volumes. Not an item you would want as an always on device, as when you are within close proximity to the device (2m) you can hear a hissing noise from the speaker when not in use (still on, but not playing). All in all i would say that it is a worthwhile purchase if you already own an echo dot, and you don’t want to pay the extra money for the more expensive version of the echo.

Easy to fit it into the top and the charger soon means it can be used anywhere. One star removed as the volume is a little too loud, even on the lowest setting. As this one was for my bedside table it was not really useable. The dot’s built in speaker is rather tinny and this speaker has a good, well rounded sound, just needs tweeking to produce bedside level and it would be 5 stars all the way.

Perfect accessory to add extra volume to an echo dot and also make it portable as and when required. Good battery life – ideal for taking into the garden etc. Very pleased with this item. Only slight complaint is that it has a very bright blue neon light on the rear when plugged in – as used in a bedroom it was pretty annoying but a couple of layers of black tape sorted the issue.

VAUX Cordless Home Speaker wireless Battery for Amazon Echo Dot Gen 2 Black/Carbon : One of my best buys, music in the garden and in the bathroom perfect for the dot.

Looks good, sounds good, but. . I bought this not so much as a portable device, but to enhance the sound quality from the echo dot. What i found is that it is great, but it keeps powering itself off after a period of inactivity, so i keep having to press the button to turn it back on again. Not really how i wanted to use it. If it stayed on, i’d give it five stars, but because it keeps switching off, two are knocked off.

Bought as a gift for my mum as she was disappointed with her choice of dot after hearing the sound quality of our echo. She is absolutely over the moon and says it’s now better than an echo because she can move it around with her.

I love that i can take my echo dot around with me in the house. Only issue i have is that is is not very quiet on the lowest setting. I wish there was a way of allowing there to be very quiet settings. The battery lasts a good 4 hours or so, with constant use. Also i wish there was a feature that told you when it is running low on battery. Instead we are listening to music and it just shuts off. Thankfully it does use a micro usb to charge so we can use our phone cable, not just the echo cable (although vaux have stated to only use the echo dot charging cable, but we have found no problem).

I love that this speaker now make alexa portable. It is great taking it into the bathroom or wherever. Only problem is that i also use it as a bed side device for some quiet tunes as we fall asleep. Using this speaker the minimum volume is still too loud. My workaround is to unplug the internal audio cable to the echo dot. This is easily done and means the sound reverts to the dot alone.

I’ve been meaning to buy a portable bluetooth speaker for a while now to use in the garden and i already had a dot so when i saw this i just had to get it and it works exactly as i hoped it would. Sound is great and the build quality seems fantastic, the amazon dot fits in the top inch perfect and it all connects easily. An added bonus is that as well as making a dot portable it also works with a chromecast audio which means i can add it to my multiroom audio setup and use it anywhere. They should definitely consider making an chromecast audio version.

The sound quality is quite good for the price and being portable because of the battery is an added bonus. However i have my suspicions that because the echo dot is put into the top of the speaker unit, it somehow reduces the effectiveness of the microphones. I sometimes have to shout the word alexa to get it to realise i am speaking to it. I have used this speaker with two different echo dot devices, so the problem does not lie with the echo dot. I have also found it very difficult to remove the plugs that connect it to the echo dot.

Greatly enhances the sound quality and volume of the dot. With this add-on it may even make it a better device than the full size echo as now have the sound quality and portability for cheaper price.

You’d never know it wasn’t original equipment.

I’ve been using the vaux for a couple of months now. The built in battery means my alexa is now truely portable. I mostly use it in the garden for bbqs etc and love it. Sound quality is very good producing clear, enjoyable music. While it doesn’t compare to the i sonos speakers i have in the main rooms it offers a fantastic solution for the rest.

Have had one of these six months now and have been very pleased with it and it’s performance. I frequently move around the house with this and it gives me hours of wireless play. Was a big hit at a garden party in the summer with alexa being the dj and taking all the requests, we ran out of steam long before this did. Very happy with the purchase and considering another for a second dot in the bedroom.

A huge improvement on sound quality and volume for the dot, if you already have a echo dot and want use it to play music it’s a good solution, if you do not already own a dot however, you need to weigh up the cost af buying both as you can currently buy a second generation echo for £69. 99 while a dot and vaux would currently cost of £14. 50 more, the only advantage is that it makes the dot portable.

I bought an echo and a dot – connected the dot to a bluetooth speaker – all good but kept having to connect or disconnect – a bit tedious, saw this and thought ‘what the hell’. Comparing the dot in the vaux to the echo?.Well – as others have said – the bass isn’t as good – but that’s comparative – when it arrived and i first tried it i was very happy with the quality, and it’s £50. I then pondered on the fact that for the dot/vaux combined price i could have had another echo. . Then my brain re-engaged – i can unplug this combination and take it to the bathroom, the kitchen, the garden (wifi/bt permitting) and still keep shouting at alexa. I say shouting (slight exaggeration) because there does seem to be a reduction in the ability of the dot to hear me – but there is no loss of review stars for that compared to the ‘upgrade’ this piece of clever kit gives my ‘echo-system’ (rubbish pun). And – (after changing the ‘wake’ word on one device) – when it’s don’t care about the neighbours time – enable ‘music everywhere’ and both speakers in the one room. If you have an echo dot – buy this – if you have an echo dot and an echo.

A great little product that means i can take the dot out in the garden when working and still control the music and lights around the house.

Fits nicely and easy to use. Not sure how long the battery lasts, but i have streamed music for 5 hours without it running out. The speaker quality isn’t as fantastic as a real echo, but it’s great if you want portability and it’s better than the echo dot for music. Now i can take alexa out into the garden and around the house.

Bought this product mainly from reading the reviews and i was not disappointed. Quite simply made my echo dot come alive.

Very impressed to be honest. Was using the dot with a bluetooth speaker that i wanted to replace and the came across this. Looks great and setup, sound is pretty good and for the money it’s a good alternative to a separate unit. You can’t compare the sound quality to the normal echo, as this just hasn’t got the same depth and base, but for a medium size room it works perfectly. Would 5 star if has some seperate base/treble control on the unit, but all in all, very happy.

Poweradd tooth Speaker – Would recommend to anyone

This speaker is amazing well worth the cost i’m very impressed with the bass compaired to all my previous speaker this one is a thousand times better i would highly recommend and i haven’t noticed any distortion on low or high volume.

This speaker is really solid and has great sound. I bought it for camping but now use it routinely in the kitchen and garden to play spotify via my phone. It does a fantastic job, it can be really loud or quiet with very good quality from such a small speaker. For a portable speaker it is relatively chunky/heavy but i expected this and was willing to trade that for a rugged, good quality speaker. I’m very glad i did and would definitely recommend it.

This is a fantastic speaker, great sound quality. I’ve got one already but this one is much louder. I need it for work and i was very impressed how good it is. So yes i would recommend this unit for work, camping etc etc.

I’ve been doing a lot of research to replace my long-lived native union switch bluetooth speaker. It’s served me well for the 5+ years i’ve had it, but i decided it’s time for an upgrade. In my research, i considered the top range from bose, sony and what have you, but i couldn’t stomach the £150 + they were asking. My previous speaker was £100 and that was the absolute maximum i wanted to pay, so i wanted something within that price range. I have tried several speakers in the £100 range and whilst most had good qualities, there was always a deal breaking compromise like short battery life, weak bluetooth, lack of power/volume, bad design or bad sound quality. This little gem is the exception. Although it’s half the price of my previous speaker, it is easily twice the value. The poweradd can play louder (much louder), the battery life is longer lasting than the switch (compared to when it was new), the bluetooth connection is more stable, has better range and it’s more gentle on my phone’s battery (the poweradd uses the much more efficient bluetooth 4. The power bank feature on this is also very handy as it can charge my phone at 1a. Obviously that won’t break any records, but it’s really good to have in a pinch. I love that this has water proofing. I’m not brave enough to test it out myself, but i have seen some youtube videos of the speaker getting dunked in baths and showers and it carried on playing. Water proofing is one of those features that’s better to have and not need than the other way around.

Only have speaker for a short while so at the moment it’s very good all round.

It sounds very good for the price but is too bassy. I have to turn the treble right up and the base right down to get a balanced sound. Perhaps it is more suited to young people. When you turn it on it makes a number of high pitched noises until its connected to your device. This is annoying if you want to listen to something quietly at bedtime without waking everybody up. The battery life is really good. It looks durable but only time will tell.

  • good lord this is great for a speaker designed for use in the shower
  • Wow, seriously talk about a great speaker
  • Really powerful for its size

This speaker is really solid,it has great sound. Perfect for we needed ,a high quality personal music box ,for small to medium spacts. The sound is also very clear. I bought this speaker for listening music outdoor,i didn’t woried water. It being waterproot of means. Easy to connect with my phone by bluetooth.

The battery lasts for a whole week of car journeys (vintage car, no radio) and the hands free telephone feature is also okay.

Its banging well loud well good well worth the money.

After some issues with amazon’s delivery, i have had the speaker hooked up for a while now, while it appears to be designed for use in hte shower, due to it being waterproof, i personally use it on the shelf beside my bed, as a music playing and alarm speaker, it’s hooked into my main network and i can cast audio to it via the use of a bluetooth dongle i recieved a few days ago, the bass on it is amazing, the highs are crisp and mids are pretty rounded, it’s great to finally have an alarm clock that sounds good. Have found that it sounds better when placed on a hard surface, and is near a wall, to bounce that audio around, but otherwise, it still sounds epic. The buttons on the top are great for figuring out what is what while not looking directly at it.

Was considering buying a budget speaker to go on holiday with but so glad i spent a little more. Sound quality is really good and i was surprised at how load it was. Would recommend to other, i’am really surprised with the sound quality.

Speaker is not as good as everyone else seems to think. Yes it’s loud but it’s missing something in the mid range. Be ok for outdoor at volume but not indoors. Sounds like someone singing from inside a paper bag. Maybe that’s because it’s water proof, i did expect better. My partner finds it irritating she won’t use it. Increments of volume adjustment to large. Lowest volume is quite high so at night l1 is only just acceptable with children asleep upstairs. I wanted this as an all round speaker but it more of a boomy speaker than and quality sound. Good for a party at the beach or garden but not in a small to medium room.

Ok only got it today had a previous bluetooth speaker which served me well but someone else needed it so thought i’d upgrade. Wow i am not disappointed the sound this puts out is insane. Even at less then 50% its louder then my newest tv. Compared to my last speaker i will say it’s a bit more of a stretch to say it’s ‘portable’ it weighs a good bit and is fairly substansiale size wise compared to other speakers. But what space/weight sacrafices you make are met with an amazing sounding speaker i could bring this to a party and easily fill a room with people talking and still have this easily heard on 50% power. Only down side i have so far is the buttons the lights keep fading in/out either stay on or off. And possibly need to find a way to reprogram the plus button to make it skip a track instead of change volume. To change track you have to long press the plus button now but i change track more then volume so need to see if i can reprogram other then that would highly recommend this speaker well worth the extra money.

 it’s the best value weatherproof outdoor speaker in amazon it terms of volume, sound quality, and pricesound quality36w this is a very competent outdoor speaker to entertain a group of people huddled around. You’ll need 50w if you want to have a garden party. Neutral, balanced, soundweight1kgcompared to the jbl charge 3 (6000mah 800g, 20w 2x10w)poweradd is more balanced, charge 3 is more bass. Charge 3 is louder in max volume despite being only 20w. Charge 3 sound stage is wider – doesn’t sound as boxy at higher volumespoweradd will make any bluetooth with less wattage sound boxy at high volumes.

This is a fantastic bluetooth speaker. The design of it is very nice and it feels great to. It came well packed and was very easy to connect to my phone via bluetooth. The sound quality of the speaker is very very good. I was very impressed with it.

Amazing sound quality, the sound quality for the size is incredible. Really enjoying the every bits of music from this speaker. Very portable and easy to use.

I’ve been staying with my parents over the festive period and my mum had been asking for a new speaker for a while so i decided to go out and buy her one. And by go out, i mean shop on amazon. Anyhow, so far over this festive period i have listened to christmas songs seemingly continuously. Consequently, i am starting to lose some of my festive cheer. However, i immediately realised that this speaker was exceptionally good. In exchange for christmas dinner, one of my chores on christmas eve was to clean my mum’s car, so i took this speaker outside, whacked the volume up to full, and basked in the glory of christmas songs for about an hour. In terms of sound quality, for a waterproof and bluetooth speaker this exceeded all expectations. The sound quality from the 4 output points is exceptional and the maximum volume available is also very good. In terms of portability, i have had no problem at all hanging this up on a tree in the front garden while i was washing the car and have also been placing it in various places inside and outside. It is light enough to slip into your bag as well (although if you are carrying lots of other stuff, it is quite bulky but not heavy).

♫ Powerful Sound and Deep Bass –

Good sound quality and high volume, silicon out coat and it being waterproof means it’s a lot more durable. For a low price this speaks is excellent quality andd can be used with an aux lead or bluetooth, it is also the perfect size to carry around with you and is grest for indoor or outdoor use.

This item have very smart looking. My husband love this item,love it work well , the sound quality and easy of use and this item can waterproof is perfect for him , very powerful speaker. Definitely recommended to friends and anyone. 👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍.

This bluetooth speaker is a must have, there are so many benefits to the power add. Firstly when i bought it the delivery was fast and the product came in very good condition. This bluetooth speaker produces amazing and very clear sound and the bass sounds very nice. Moreover the battery life on the power add last a very long time as i’ve only charged it twice so far and it is very easy to use. Wherever i go i always bring this speaker with me and it’s very entertaining in picnics and many more. In my opinion the speaker is worth it and has been the best speaker i’ve ever bought.

Sound quality is far better than my expectations, it really has a deep bass and there is no distortion when volume is up to maximum. It feels heavy and really solid built which makes me think it is built to last. Rubber feet on the bottom are not allowing it to ‘dance’ on any surface. Don’t know if it was fully charged when received but i have played music and took phone calls on it for about 4 hours and it was still running.

A few months in and i can truely appreciate the sound quality of these speakers. They have two 13w speakers and according to the website they have two 5w subwoofers which gives a nice bass. All of my friends praise the sound of this and cannot believe that it only cost me £50. Having listened to some of the other bluetooth speakers that my friends have i can honestly say that this is as good as their more expensive brands and better than the ones that are in the same price bracket. Only downside is that in the dark, you can’t see what the buttons are as the light is around the button and doesn’t illuminate the function of the button but for me it’s not an issue as i have gotten used to where each button is. So if you want a powerful speaker with excellent bass under 50 quid, this is the one to get.

So far brilliant — had it for 2 months or so – great for garden parties.

♫ IPX7 Waterproof Speaker – Highest waterproof rating fully waterproof. It is real waterproof. Normal IPX5 rating speakers only at splash proof or light rain, not waterproof, MusicFly is waterproof, sand proof, snow proof and shockproof.

 because i need a bluetooth audio device that could connect it with a projector video and a tv box i searched the amazon for something that would not cost much money. To my surprise i found this product at a fairly good price and impressive audio quality. It connects well with any bluetooth device and has no audio signal drops. Using three hours a day the battery lasts for about seven days at an avarage volume that is 50% of the power. I have always looked for branded products with the exception of this time but i can say that this product is at the same level of quality as the registered trademarks.

 i was looking for a speaker that is compact and powerful and is also bluetooth which can be carried easily anywhere but should be good enough to play in a house party but did not want to spend too much on it too. I found this speaker which ticked all the boxes. I always like bose but it is too expensive for me. Now with this one, i felt the sound quality very close to bose but at about one third in price. Extremely easy to set up and use and also came with 3. 5 mm cable to connect to the source and play if we don’t have a bluetooth like in a tv. The sound is very clear with no distortion and the battery life is excellent too. It is also waterproof and can also be used as a power bank which is really a bonus though i don’t think i will try to take this in water.

Wow, i think i just ordered the loudest portable battery powered speaker on the planet. Speaker arrived on time and well packed and came with charging cable too. When i connected speaker to my phone (really easy) i was shocked by how loud it actually went. It has fernominal bass and the buttons on the top have built in lights. This is going on holiday with me for sure. I’m going to be blasting songs beside the pool with cold beer in my hand can’t wait. My friend has a bose speaker which is not as good as mine. Battery life is very good surprising how loud it is.

Solid structure ,sufficiently loud ,wireless ,easy to bind – party all the time despite the weather.

Mine just came as speaker, no charger , no aux lead, no instructions, charged it up with android cable, but decent speaker, seller very helpfull and sending my power leads etc wen i return back to uk.

 this is the best quality of bluetooth speaker i had ever bought, my previous speaker all broken after few use and the sound is not that great. But this one really amaze me. The bass is super nice for listening to my favourite song. I can easily connect it to my mp3 with the cable given and the battery last very long. For people that want to buy a speaker but can’t afford the branded speaker this will be the good choice.

Wow, seriously talk about a great speaker i’m honestly blown away by how good this is. I love the way it looks and the weight is good too, it’s not too heavy but still has this weight that feels like quality. I bought this for my wife when she’s out and about doing some of her shoots cause i didn’t want her taking my bose ones but i compared these to my bose soundlink and i’m not sure which i prefer. Both have fantastic quality sound but it’s very different. The bose is a bit more bass heavy without having as much clarity in the vocals but the poweradd speakers are more clear and crisp and the bass is there too but just not as much. I guess it depends on what you’re listening to. Although i bought this for the wife i think i might take it myself for some shoots cause it’s a little easier to carry than the bose speakers plus it’s waterproof supposedly. Not going to be testing that theory :).

♫ 36W High Power Delivers –

Very impressed with this speaker. Very good sound quality, awesome bass response from such small drivers. A little distortion at high volume but nothing that bothers me in the slightest. For price, this is a bargain.

Bought it for a fun music bike ride i organise every year so liked the solidity in case of a drop. Cheaper than the better known brand i bought for my kids – but the sound is as good as, good top volume and battery life and bluetooth connectivity excellent too. It’s quite heavy but my guess is that’s the cost of getting a good sound.

The sound quality is amazing, as if it were a proper plug in speaker. There’s amazing bass which is not too overpowering. Overall sound quality is 10/10.

Sound quality leaves a lot to be desired. Yes it is loud and heavy in base, but that’s it. The lyrics sound muffled and blurry.

Excellent device for a really decent price.

Bought this speaker ready for my summer bbqs. Had it on most of the day and the battery is lasting well and i have had it on quite loud. Wasnt expecting much as its not a name i have heard of and because of its size but, it is realy loud and the music is realy clear. If you like your base then you will love this speaker. My only small gripe is that the usb charging cable is quite short but thats its only fault and you can pick them up cheap enough. All in all a great robust and loud speaker.

♫ Emergency Power Bank –

This was purchased for use with a projector in a spare room and has turned out to be a really great quality unit – although it has a very capable battery, mine will be run from mains mostly, i just wanted the portable option for the kids. The sound from such a relatively small speaker is very impressive with great bass and a clear vocal presentation. Its heavy, but when you consider the size of the battery in there and the layout of the speakers you will understand why – not that its a great problem, just be prepared for the extra weight if you use it as a portable speaker. Its very well-built and solid enough to take a few bumps and splashes so even if we take this camping with us, it will be protected. I guess you will be primarily be buying this for the sound it produces above all else and it really doesn’t disappoint. Sure its a bit more expensive but you get what you pay for and with this speaker, you get a lot.

Simply amazing, the sound is really good, powerful, the battery is durable, looks very strong. I didn’t try if is waterproof but it looks very hermetic.

A weighty and study product. Battery life epic and can charge your phone while playing songs.

Having received this product, it use a few days, i was shocked,  the sound quality is really good for a bluetooth speaker, it has clear highs and strong bass,such a price to buy such a product,very easy to connect to the phone computer, easy to carry, it is recommended, thank you.

Good quality of sound, pretty massive as an object, poor lightning on the buttons tho, they glow in the dark, but the functions are to be unseen. Also, the speaker is turning off if it is not playing for less than 2-3 mins or so, making it pretty annoying as you have to turn it on every time it does that. Another minus would be the fact that it is pairing to multiple devices at the same time, so if you wish to swap beetwen the paired devices you got to disconnect both of them, and reconnect with the chosen one, stopping the device to choose for you where to connect at. Overpriced for the features that we get.

I bought this wireless bluetooth speaker for the outdoors. The volume of this speaker is a bit big, but the sound is also very loud. The sound is also very clear and there is no noise. It also can act as a charger and can charge my two mobile phones.

I absolutely love this speaker. It is so well made and very robust. Connected it to my ipod via bluetooth so i could listen to music in the bath, the acoustics were great. This speaker produces good rich and clear sounds, good battery life too. I am so glad that i bought it.

Very easy to use, sound quality is good.

DOSS SoundBox XL 32W tooth Speakers : OkI’m a believer now.

Super value and awesome full range sound quality. Works exceptionally well in corner of a room. Pretty natural sound tuning. I only use it at low to moderate volume, so not sure how it will perform as a ‘party speaker’, but i’m very impressed. I honestly think one will have to spend a whole lot more (multitudes) to get better sound – this thing is extremely well priced. I’ve had many portable and dock speakers, including b&w zeppelin air, apple hifi, harman kardon go-play, jbl flip3 and flip4. This speaker is more enjoyable than all of the mentioned ones, except for maybe the apple hifi (for which i have a very special affinity. Have to admit though that the doss is nicer when portability is a factor and it has better bass presence at lower volumes and stuck in a corner. I think this is a keeper for sure and can’t see why anyone would sell these on.

Wow for a smallish size this bluetooth speaker rocks. It gets down too some really low bass notes. Just seen a youtube vid of it going as low as 36 hertz. It also sounds louder than 40 watts. So buying this was a bit of a bit of a no brainier in my book. Because the whole speaker system looks to be based on the the old sony stsx77, which retailed for £249. I’m just listening to it now have connected a old ipod running ios 7. Paired no problem as sounds really good at half volume.

Clear sound, deep bass, great speaker.

Very good sound, very well builld, fantastic sound and good budget.

Great sound with plenty of base.

I was convinced from the positive reviews to buy this speaker, but feel now that while it is indeed good value for money, it is not – sonically – as good as many reviewers state. The bass really is its strength, powerful and deep; but – to my ears – this is a cost to the mid range and upper registers with vocals especially feeling “small” and rather recessed, somehow “inside” the speaker. I was able to compare this with my own amazon echo, my son’s jbl charge 3 and a bose soundlink revolve plus. All three provided a more natural-seeming, balanced and rounded sound. In the end, i bit the bullet and bought a bose – it’s frankly superb. You do get what you pay for with bose.

What a wonderful speaker this is. Well had 2 wonderful hours of utube and iphone tracks. Got tiered pulled, out the charging cable from the back, checked the charge light and it was green. As i pulled the lead out it went all loose in the hole that it fits in. The fine charging pin had come away. So the plug/connector would not stay in,so unable to charge. Portable speaker not robust enough by a long way. Update:doss have a truly wonderful customer care service department. There engineers are investigating the charge pin problem and have replaced my speaker with a new one direct, not a “second hand” used one as supplied by amazon. As originally stated,this speaker in my view is superb.The audiophiles may be able to nit pick issues with it, but having spent a morning in a well known store in the uk, there was nothing that would come close to the xl’s performance, even almost tripling the cost and less delivery.

This is a great blue tooth speaker. If you compare it to other speakers you will notice that it is better than speakers twice or triple the price. I must say that i bought the doss soundbox xl a half year ago when the price was 64 pounds. Since then the price has gone up but the speaker is still worth it.

Excellent sound, good volume. Pairs no problem, battery life decent too.

The speaker has good quality. Bass is excellent without booming. High frequencies are a bit “hidden”, but not so much. Overall i would recommend it. For comparison reasons if harman kardon onyx studio 3 takes 8,5/10 in sound quality , then this speaker takes 8/10 which is fairly close.

This could’ve easily been 5 stars. When i unboxed it, first thing what happened was the little piece of trim at the top fell off – not sure if it got unstuck during shipping or it was not glued on preoperly – this straight away gave me a bad impression about build quality. The unit itself felt solid enough, if lighter than i expected for the size of the speaker. The real problems began when i started listening to it. First i noticed was rattleling, some distorion and farts whistles from the back – probably a defective unit – the aux, charge and tf card slots were leaking air making these noise that were very audible past half volume and distorted at high volumes. As well as that there was some audible rattles from the top of the speaker – maybe buttons, maybe the trim piece was still not on properly. Other than that it’s a really nice and full sounding speaker, but unfortunantly i’ll have to return mine and i am not sure if i will be purchasing a new one. Ps i did not have any grill rattle or hiss noises reported by others.

I’ve had several slightly smaller and slightly less expensive speakers but for the price – when i say there is no comparison there really is no comparison. I’m listening to it now and it is simply a wonderful speaker for the price. For a small amount more than your entry level speaker this unit is way ahead. I researched and read many reviews before buying and would 100% say buy this.

This speaker when i first saw this i thought hmm is it as good as the cheaper jbl speakers and i ordered it and it sounded incredible, the low notes were insane and i seriously recommend buying this product, the only downside is that when it gets louder the bass doesn’t and if you drop it there’s a high chance that it will cause an air leak and ruin the bass of the speaker but it’s easy fix.

Firstly, i am 65 years old, i don’t like playing my music load and i know nothing about bose. Plus, the first speaker received was faulty, it kept turning itself off. Doss sent me another one, but, i should have used amazon to get a another one, as i had no way of tracking the replacement. Despite all that, i love the sound from the speaker, probably the best i have ever bought. It does a great job of letting you hear just how important the base guitar is. I used it during a bbq on saturday and it ran for about 3 hours, using the micro sd card. The next day, i used it go listen my favourite country station from the usa, and that was another 2 hours through bluetooth, with no need to charge it. It feels very sturdy and weighty, but not really heavy. Reading other reviews, bose do make a cheap speaker, but it got a lot of poor reviews, so this speaker is probably the better option. Other reviews complain about a distortion with the doss speaker, i have only had this happen when the american presenter spoke, never with any of my music.

Bass is stunning for such a compact unit.

Excellent sound for the price, deep base, clear highs and nice mids. Some recordings can make the bass sound a bit uncontrolled though, and i’m currently looking into fixing this issue. Sounds like a much more expensive speaker, so overall i’m really pleased. One of the better bluetooth speakers up to 150 – 200 dollars, if not the best.

Firstly, this speaker is pretty barebones. It has no extra features, no waterproofing, no ability to pair with other speakers. Well let me tell you, it puts out sound that is absolutely incredible for its size. I also own a ue megaboom, and if we are comparing sound alone the doss soundbox xl is head & shoulders above the megaboom, a speaker which was twice the price. Ok admittedly it lacks some features of the ue, but if you just want something that sounds good this is it. Build quality leaves a bit to be desired, and there did appear to be some slight superficial scratching to the case, but honestly it’s hard to complain as you will not find anything that sounds anywhere near as good as this at this price point. Update: the build quality seems to have reared its ugly-head. Their appears to be a slight buzzing at certain frequencies. Shall keep an eye to see if it persists and/or gets worse.

I purchased this product after seeing reviews on youtube and also on amazon, some very positive and a few with issues. Thinking that if i have any issues amazon’s easy returns policy would cover me. I received the doss soundbox xl and was very pleased with both the build quality and sound quality of this larger format speaker( similar in size to a box of family tissues). The speaker has a classy and understated matt black finish which helps to hide finger prints and is intuitively easy to use. The instructions are clearly written. There are controls on the top of the speaker to pause play as well as to skip to the next or previous track which is very useful. Other controls are power on , volume and a source button to allow selection of memory card or line in connection. The bluetooth connection has very good range and connects with ease. It has connect and disconnect sounds which can be a little loud for my tastes. The speaker is charged not by usb , which may be a missed opportunity for convenience , but by a small transformer plug and the lead is terminated with a small pin connector which may in time be a little less robust if abused or not treated with care.

A warm, but pure sound for easy listening. Great bass the built quality is also good. Very satisfied with the product.

A great speaker with nice full sound, as mentioned by the other reviewer, but unfortunately let down by one issue. When the speaker is on i hear a static noise, which seems to be emanating from the upper left and also the upper right side of the device (so probably the left and right drivers i’m guessing?). It’s not very loud but nonetheless noticeable. This happens regardless of whether it is paired with another device or not. It also happens regardless of whether it is playing something or not; reducing the volume on both the speaker and the paired computer to zero didn’t help. I tried connecting it via the aux input instead of bluetooth but that also didn’t help. I’m not sure if this is an issue that only my device is facing or if it’s an issue that all of them suffer from?.

Just watch clavinetjunkie reviews. The best speaker price/performance wise.

I read some review that this is an amazing speaker for the price. I can say that it is good but i am not amazed. Sound: the speaker produces really deep bass but it doesn’t have enough punch for my liking. I would prefer it to have more booming and punchy sound. For indoor use the speaker is plenty loud. Design: the speaker is just one big box. It is pretty big and this is probably why i am not amazed. You expect such a large speaker to produce such sound. Features: it is as basic as they come. Just a plain bluetooth speaker with no additional features.

Sonos One – Voice Controlled Smart Speaker – Great edition to the range

Still waiting for support for assistants other than alexa but it is a great sounding addition to the kitchen and or bedroom.

These sound brilliant as a stereo pair. Very happy with them (and no issues with alexa and spotify so far). Surprised by the negative reviews – they’re brilliant.

We got this for christmas and put it in the kitchen. All the features of alexa (and spotify) with a great sound. Really changed our time in the kitchen.

How anyone thinks this is hard to set up or that alexa doesn’t work i don’t get – easiest set up and alexa works so well – great sound and a great product.

Great piece of kit, software be quality is outstanding can’t wait to get a second one for stereo. It did take me a while to get use to alexa was calling her the wrong name but after that little niggle she’s fantastic plays what you want. Amazon music unlimited is out standing the playlists wow where do i start.

A great product and fun to have if you’re bored ☺.

  • Absolutely brilliant – why all the negative reviews?
  • Great speakers but Alexa needs work
  • Brilliant quality and sound, Alexa is still hit and miss

Good sound quality, alexa is good but not asa good as its rival yet :).

I love this, got it as a christmas present and it keeps me company when i’m working from home. Great sound quality and alexa gives you the freedom to switch songs and stations when the mood takes you.

How did i manage without this. Love it –love it– love it. Eveyone should have one of these. Great price and fast delivery too.

Alexa really doesn’t know much and doesn’t seem to be able to search the internet well. But it’s nice for playing music (if she can understand your request) and checking the days weather.

Sonos one speakers sound very clear and crisp. Easy to setup using the sonos app on phone. Ive bought the playbase and sub with these speakers and the sound is amazing.

Can I use voice to control Spotify?

Yes, you can use voice to control Spotify Premium on Sonos One. Just ask Alexa for your favourite playlist, artist, album or song, then pause, resume, skip and adjust the volume.

Can I create a stereo pair between Sonos One and Play:1?

Sonos One can only pair with another Sonos One for stereo sound or as rear surrounds in a home cinema configuration.

Are there stands or wall mounts for Sonos One?

We worked with partners to develop stands and wall mount accessories specific to the Sonos One. These will be available to buy.

Sonos One does not have a standard speaker screw mount so always check compatibility of the stand before purchasing.

Do all Alexa commands work through Sonos One?

Most Alexa commands and skills are supported by Sonos One. However, several specific features that Alexa provides on Echo devices are not available. These include:

– Voice calling, drop-in and messaging

– Setting reminders and getting notifications

Make sure this fits
by entering your model number.

This is a fantastic piece of kit that integrates easily into the rest of our sonos system. It provides the usual sonos sound excellence and enables voice control of radio, spotify & various lights around the house.

Amazed at the sound that comes from such a small speaker, and so easy to work – no more messing with a docking station.

Just a superb piece of equipment. Great sound and build quality. I bought this to create a stereo pair with an existing sonos one and am very happy with them.

Great bit of kit especially with alexa built in. Good quality and great sound.

This is a great you talk to it and it can tell you anything. It play anything you have in your music library and more. The sound from this speaker is excellent.

Love it, use spotify premium for music.

Start and control your music with your voice; Amazon Alexa built right in

Good product, disappointed you can’t make calls via amazon echo though, didn’t read the spec properly.

This is brilliant, it has made me fall in love with sonos all over again. For various reasons the echo dot would not work in this house but the voice controlled sonos does an even better job.

Despite all the poor reviews on the item (not regarding the sound quality which is very good) but regarding the setup i found with the appropriate research most solutions could be resolved.

Great sound for such a small body – obviously not naim level but great. Alexa works all straight forward.

Love these speakers – i have two of these and going to buy the playbar (£699) on the back of the quality of these. Expensive, but well worth the money.

Love sonos products, so thought i’d try and move with the times and get alexa in my life. Once you’ve added a fair few skills she works well. Sometimes picks up sounds from the tv and randomly activates, but feedback is soon givrn. Good news that google assistant is on its way to be included so that will make these super dooper.

Combine voice with the Sonos app to manage all your music in one place: Amazon Music, Spotify, Apple Music, internet radio and hundreds of other streaming services

I was undecided about whether to go with apple sonos or bose. Apple was a little pricey so decided on sonos. Wasn’t disappointed the sound is unreal. So glad i made this decision. If your in doubt don’t make the purchase you won’t be disappointed. I think i’m going to get another to add stereo sound.

Totally love this speaker with alexa built insound quality amazing, alexa software still in early stages but as time goes on will be as good as echoif you want a good speaker i would definitely recommend.

I’m a sonos convert and bought it as part of a home cinema setup consisting of a beam, sub and 2 x ones. These little speakers look great on their sanus floorstands and receive lots of compliments. More importantly the sound is great – refined and well balanced (helps that the sub takes care of the bass now).

I have been using these for a few months and they are a wonderful addition to my living room. These speakers have been my first introduction to sonos, and alexa. I must like them as i have just bought a sonos beam to make them into a surround sound tv setup. But i digress – i originally bought these speakers to bring some music to my living room. As we didn’t yet own a tv, and being someone who values audio more than video generally i wanted something nice i could stream music with. These speakers were a great choice. They pair easily, and using the ios app can be tuned to the environment for a lovely, room filling sound. The music is nicely balanced, with a reasonable amount of base and volume when needed while at the same time providing a very clear and enjoyable low volume listening experience. My experience with alexa has been mixed. She doesn’t always hear my unless i raise my voice, which can be frustrating.

This sonos one is my first foray into the world of sonos. I’m dipping my toe in, before buying further speakers. I’m impressed and will certainly be buying more. Having previously used echo dots (connected to hifi’s), i was familiar with alexa voice control, which my family has become used to using. However, i was always frustraed by alexa’s inability to recognise and play specific albums i would request from amazon prime or from my music library (hosted on amazon). The problem is particularly bad for classical music albums and composers. The alexa app does not provide a search facility, which is frustrating when the voice control fails so often. The amazon music app has just added the option to cast music to echo devices, but this is still rather clunky. The sonos app, by contrast, is far superior. In particular, it allows you to perform text searches on amazon cloud music, and select an album for immediate playback.

Well made speaker, great sound quality, that works well with the others we have in the house.

For the money, im really happy with this alexa/speaker. Alexa works very well, but you cannot set a sleep time and have to do this on the sonos app. Very good sound and plenty of bass if you want it.

Enjoy full voice control for Spotify on the Sonos One

Works fine and even better with updated firmware.

Primarily i wanted a speaker to play music – so i wanted it to sound great. Having listened to a range of smart speakers out there at the moment, i was somewhat disappointed with the sound quality of them all. Most had lack of bass and clarity, usually sounding dull, muffled and like a baked bean can. The emphasis seemed to be a smart assistant first, with the ability to play music second. Then i heard sonos and apple were entering the smart speaker market – more money than some other popular smart speakers i could mention (sorry amazon), but you get what you pay for. £199 price point for the sonos one isn’t wildly different from some of the other speakers anyway, although the new apple one due next year will have to be pretty special to justify their price tag. . I waited for the sonos one to arrive in a local store, so that i could ‘try before i buy. ‘ first impression was i expected it to sound better – but it was in a large store environment, lots of background shoppers noise, other speakers being played, and also, often the product isn’t set up properly for display/demonstration purposes. I also knew i’d be able to adjust bass and treble via the sonos app anyway. After a few more weeks chewing it over, i saw the sonos one on promotion with amazon and decided to take a gamble.

I can’t understand the negative reviews; this speaker is excellent. As one would expect with sonos, the sound is excellent. In addition my experience of alexa has been flawless.

Doesn’t pickup the word ‘alexa’ very well (amazon devices do fine though). Still awaiting google home compatibility.

Loving having alexa in the house, and expanding my sonos system at the same time.

Alexa functionality still feel like it’s in beta; it doesn’t always work, it took some time setting up and fixing the ‘only plays single songs’ bug, but in general we’re very happy. With two in a large open plan space i’m very happy with the sound quality.

Enjoy rich room-filling sound from a smart speaker

This is a replacement as the first one didn’t work. I have since bought a sonos play 1 to play in another room and that was straightforward to add to the sonos app.

We love sonos and we’re fond of alexa so this is a no brainer. I like that we can ask alexa to wake us up, and she even asks ‘am or pm?’ bless.

I run a photography studio and i bought one for the studio area for background music when with clients but almost immediately ordered a second one for the office as well. I loved that the two rooms were in sync and that the volume on each could be controlled both together or separately. I also like that i can quickly turn the volume down with alexa. The sound on these were so good that i have now also ordered one for home and will be using that to control the lighting and tele. I know it’s a little expensive for alexa on it’s own but for sound quality and convenience, this is a must have purchase.

Great sound but terrible connectivity, difficult to connect any device other than a phone to. There is a lack of sonos compatible apps. Will likely sell it and swap to a model with bluetooth functionality. A shame because it’s a neat looking device with sound quality that’s superior to many full hi fi systems.

And sound quality is amazing. Been using it along with amazon music and its fantastic.

Alexa can be slightly hit and miss but more hit. Can be occasionally temperamental but as our first smart speaker i would recommend. Bit annoying to have to pay extra to get a stereo pair as only a one can pair with a one and essentially i will turn the microphone off on one so won’t buy unless price drop or free amazon vouchers from amex become available.

This is so much better than the so called echo 2nd generation.

I also have the sonos play1. Great quality and fills the room with sound. Just ask alexa to play music, so easy. Alexa hears better on my echo spot, but get closer to the sonos one and there’s no problems.

A brilliant speaker and the added functionality of amazon alexa makes it best in class. Delivered quickly and easy to set up, it’s ideal for any room in the house. Having the alexa hands free option is great for the kitchen too – especially for setting timers. High quality and definitely recommended.
