This was my first bluetooth speaker purchase. I am pleased with almost every aspect of the speakers. The volume leaves me wanting more. But I'm not entirely sure that fault is attributeable solely to it. The bright blue lights surrounding the speakers is a design flaw that must be addressed: not everyone likes bright, bright blue lights. Not everyone can look at them (accidently) and not get a searing headache. If I were in the position of repurchasing today, the absense of an on/off switch or setting to control the lights would be enough to make me choose a different product, because of my sensitivity. Although no one else in the household is bothered by this.
We've had no issues with connectivity or performance of the unit. We've utilized all different connection types except FM radio and all work well with no issues apparant.
The brand is one that I would no longer hesitate buying. The price was comparable to the available selection at the time. It happened to be on sale at my local store at the right time.
I purchased with the intent to use on the flat screen television in my RV, but after connecting to the unit I found the volume output is terrible. I was hoping with a powered speaker unit there might actually be more volume than on the television, silly me. Hopefully the store will take them back. Anyway, I will need to spend more to get a better sound/volume quality system I suppose.
My son gave me this unit for Christmas to replace a similar product I had for many years. This one has more bells and whistles, of course. I love to listen to CDs and the radio while in the kitchen, and I haven't used the blue tooth feature. The sound is good and it is easy to operate. The only thing my old unit had that is missing on this one is the automatic repeat feature on the CDs. I would recommend it.
Under 70.00 and multifunctional. I only use these as wired headphones but paired with my smart phone the sound is amazing. The bottom is so fat for hip hop and full bodied for jazz and rock. I love these headphones. If value means anything to you buy these headphones and save your money.
Sound quality was good, enjoyed it while it lasted, which unfortunately was not very long. Subwoofer went out after 34 days of purchase. The store I purchased from (Kmart) will not take back after 30 days and Ilive's warranty requires my paying the shipping and handling there and back, which will be close to the purchase price. I will steer away from this manufacturer in the future.
My wife and I recently purcased your speaker system and we were reading all the information we could about them looking for a way to turn off (or at least down) the obnoxiously bright blue lights that illuminate the entire room and our naked bodies. Making us appear as we are Avatars from Pandora. Our kids walked in the other night and seriouly thought we were aliens. Even our clearly enunciated usually easily recognizable voices were misconstrued due to our blue-ish hue. And we weren't even naked that time. We always keep the door locked when we are naked anyway.
So, can someone *please* tell me how to eliminate the lights from their usually full functiin 24-7 operation? Or perhaps even if there is some sort of hidden combinatiin hack that turns these things. Ya know? How they have code for cars where if you press the brake and turn the stereo to a certain channel while turning the steering wheel in a certain direction while hane the hazard lights are on and you turn on the ac and that annoying alarm (that does NOT have blue lights but is still annoying) thats indicates my sest belt is not engaged. Which I HATE seatbelts. My great aunt almost died from one in the mid 70's and ever since then, my entire family agrees that seat belts are bullshit. And we all unamiously refuse to wear them. Sooo those codes are great. Have your technicians prepared this sort of code to disengage these annoying blue lights.
I realize that everyone seems to enjoy these lights as a premier feature of the speaker system unit, but we beg to differ. We feel that they are distracting. My wife uses those fabric placemats from the kitchen table to often cover them. I came home the other evening and she had them FACING the front picture window with the shades drawn tightly in behind them. Just BLASTING bight blue police car type lights out into our front yard. What's next??? We JUST bought these 3 days ago. Someone (!!!!!) Please help. We LOVE the sound and enjoy bluetooth like features whatever that's supposed to refer to, I'm not keen to electronics perse' but I do know that I don't like blue nights now. I used to they seeemed soothing and relaxing before. Now I just feel like I'm going to be arrested all the time, for no reason, because I'm not driving right now, so how could (would they???) ever know if I was wearing my seatbelt or not when they would show up at my front door??? They couldn't possibly... there is NO WAY.
But back to these speakers. What"s with the blue lights? My wife's car's dash light change on there own to less annoying of blues and pinks and golden hues of orange and yellow. And while yes, there is blue involved, its less commanding than say your speaker system's options of only one tone of INTERSTATE HIGHWAY CRUISER PARTROL VEHICLE. Which is starting to freak me out.
I've been shopping for a bluetooth speaker now for about a month. I have a Chromebook equipped with bluetooth and most any speaker should be better then the lousy built-in ones on the Chromebook.
After much research and sound testing, I settled on this little guy due to it's price and sound quality. It's no JBL, but it's also not $100.00! I can be picking regarding sound quality, and this is quite nice at reasonable sound volumes.
The one thing I am not liking is how often the signal is dropped, but since this unit is new, I will trouble-shoot it and see what the issue might be. Of course, it might be the computer, too. I will see.
You probably won't find a better sounding or better looking speaker for under $20.00!
I have only had this speaker for 2 months and the damn thing won't come on any more.
The LCD display is just flashing, no lonher shows the time. I can't even take it back to FYE because it's past 30 days. Essentially it is $80 wasted
