battery die after couple recharges, and i jast throw it away.
Drops calls & charging light doesn't work1/12/2011
Bought this in Oct. for hubby for Christmas. Went off the great reviews and figured I wouldn't need to return it. Reviews were all pretty positive. It instructs you to charge it before using it and states the light should be red when charging & turn green when done charging. This light NEVER COMES ON. Wasn't sure it was charging or if it even worked. Was able to synch it to my phone easily so knew it was working. Tested it by placing a call. During the conversation, this just shut off. Disconnected the call. I called back the person just using my cell phone's built in speaker. The person said they could hear me ten times better. Not impressed with this item when using w/a cell phone. Buy.com "customer service" won't do anything about it either since it was purchased over 3 months ago. Didn't even give me info re contacting the manufacturer. POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE. This thing is useless and will go in the trash.
Nice for the price11/13/2010
Works well and seamlessly with Moto Droid2. Some apps get confused though. If running Pandora, the audio controls launch the regular audio player. I was hoping the audio would sound richer with more bass. But for the price it was worth it. Works well as a speaker phone adapter. No complaints from callers on the other end. It did randomly cut out once. Battery charge is pretty good and last long on a single charge. Good range too.
Good speaker for its size.11/10/2010
This speaker seems to be great for what most people would expect out of it. Based on its small size and price, I wasn't expecting Bose quality sound and tonal response. The sound is heavy on treble and light on bass but it's exactly what I'd expect from a speaker this size. The Bluetooth functionality works great for my needs. The USB connection works with most newer Smart phone plugs (like the Droid)allowing charging on the go in a vehicle via a car charger, although I haven't run the battery down in a day. I'd easily recommend this speaker.
I use it at work to listen to podcasts most of the time but I used it on a trip and the sound is pretty good. I really like this product and the batt life is better than I expected,
Good little product11/3/2010
I bought this with the sole expectation of being able to listen to the music on my iPhone while driving without having to wear headphones. It does that perfect. It's easy to pair with the devices I paired it to (iPhone 4, blackberry curve, laptop) and have had zero problems with it. The call quality when using it to make and receive calls wasn't that great. Most of the people I talked to said I sounded like I was "in a barrel" or "very distant", same problem I've had with other bluetooth speakers so no surprise. Overall, it does what I bought it for pretty well. Not the best, but perfect for less than $30. I recommend it to anyone.
When I saw this being offered on Buy.com I knew I had to get it. It has worked flawlessly and is so easy to use. It's nice to be able to listen to my music, use it for phone calls, etc. I highly recommend this.
This product is excellent. I use it everyday with my iPad and iPhone. When a call comes in, the music interrupts and it starts ringing. When the call has ended, the music continues to play. For the price this was a steal! The sound quality far exceeded my expectations too! There was only 1 issue in that I cannot use the forward button to skip to the next song on my iPad, but who cares....I can just do that on the iPad itself.
Don't expect more sound.10/30/2010
Worked pretty good straight out of the box but worked only for 30 min to 1 hr then did not turn ON. Few things to consider: 1) Battery can only be charged 500 times (battery not removable) 2) Intensity of Sound is same as my Blackberry phone. 3) Easy to pair with cell phone but did not work with Laptop Bluetooth. When connected to the laptop i couldnt hear the song but it controls the volume. Only positive things is easy to return and received full return.
Nice bluetooth addition10/30/2010
Pleasantly surprised with the performance. Worth every penny.
Great sound & well worth the price10/21/2010
I've really enjoyed this little device so far. I took it with me to share music with friends from my BlackBerry. It was loud enough that I had to turn down the volume so others can carry on some conversation :). I also used it while driving to answer/make calls. I have hearing problem but I have no trouble carrying the conversation with this germ. Two improvements needed, however: (1) Option to mount on windshield, and (2) replaceable battery.
Small and Powerful10/19/2010
I am happy to find such a compact item that is bluetooth and has a very powerful sound. These little speakers are very loud for the size and the price. They can be heard while driving on the highway. I connected my EVO and the video also playback through the speakers as well as any other voice functions on the phone. I can also activate the voice command by pressing the phone button on the speaker and the ff, rwd, and pause controls the phone. It also connects to two devices. There not a lot of bass but the sound is very good and loud considering the size. I highly recommend this item.
Just received my bluetooth speaker. Easy to set up. Works great. Have it paired to my Blackberry phone and Apple itouch player. Sound is not audiophile quality but more than adequate. If you want a wireless speaker to take with you anywhere you can't beat this device for the price.
VERY VERY VERY COOL!8/23/2010
Works Great! Looks Great! Worth the buy!
Love this little speaker. Tiny footprint w/great6/21/2010
I can run my music through it while I'm studying or working and still take my calls. I love it. I use it a few times a week and it packs up so small and easy. Well worth the price.
Well designed and highly useful. Not only is it a great bluetooth speaker, it also can be used as a portable speaker for audio devices. The only issue is that this speaker uses a MicroUSB port for charging. I expected a MiniUSB port since it's more commonly used, but since MicroUSB is the charger standard for the future, I think it's fine.
Conference calls made easy.2/7/2009
I use the EQ5 for conference calls up to 8 people. The sound was loud enough for all to hear in a small conference room. The microphone picks up voices within a few feet. I also use it in the car. The flip out stand allows it to sit on my steering column with out slipping off. Add some adhesive velcro and you can stick it to your visor.
Easy to use1/2/2009
I bought this as a Christmas present for my Dad so he could connect it to his iPhone and listen to music when he and my mother travel. He's not the most technical guy, but he had it connected via Bluetooth and working in just a few minutes. The sound is great for such a small device. You'll never confuse the sound with a full sized sound system, but it's a ton better than the cheap units out there. I can't comment on battery life yet, but if it's as good as my Motorola Bluetooth headphones, then I'll be very impressed.
