This is a product that doesnt really know what it wants to be. On the one hand, it has flashing colored lights suggesting it is yet another party speaker for 20 year olds playing a lot of hip-hop or house music. On the other hand, the digital signal processing was done by Meridian, an extremely high-end audiophile company. They make the stereo in the new Jaguar, so their normal work is not exactly aimed at the 20 year old demographic.

So which is it? Think more Jaguar than house party. If you want thumping, weirdly overboosted bass, this is definitely not the speaker for you. If you want a small speaker that will rattle the windows, this is not the speaker for you, either. Even a pair of these dont get all that loud, although you can at least turn them all the way up with no distortion. I think the only real nod to the party speaker crowd is the light show thing. Even that is a kind of half-baked effort. The lights seem to struggle with accurately timing to the music, and after the initial wow factor, you will want to turn them off, as it just gets annoying.

Instead, this is for people (of any age) who actually care about a reasonably accurate reproduction of the source material in a relatively small package. I bought a pair of these PK5s and linked them together so they will play in stereo. I was frankly stunned at how good they sound. The sound signature is rich, nuanced and very neutral. Even the bass, which should be just garbage on something this small, is nicely integrated into the overall sound signature. Clearly, the Meridian guys know what they are doing, this sounds like something a lot bigger and more expensive than it is.

I bought these for casual, undemanding listening on the patio. Think morning coffee with a little jazz in the background, a speaker for the kitchen, etc. I wasnt expecting all that much at this price. But these are significantly better than that. I think a pair of these could easily be your only stereo in a small apartment where space is at a premium. They are that good. Good luck finding something else at this quality level for this little money. A pair of these at just over $100 is just a screaming bargain.

The only thing about them I dont much like is that you have re-pair the two speakers to each other each time you want stereo. That requires pushing the button behind the door for two seconds on each of them every time you turn them on. Not a huge deal. Oh, and if you have an iPhone the app that provides additional controls for the light show is garbage, doesnt work at all. I think it currently has about 250 one star reviews on the App store. Again, not something I care much about.

Pick up a pair of these while you can. Something tells me that, at this crazy price, they arent going to be available forever.

Not many BT speakers have Apt x, let alone aptx HD. Got them for that. They light up and brighten with the beat, and you can enhance the bass, as well as vocals. Worked easily with my LG v30 and power amp. Sound is pretty decent. Better than the Sony offerings I have heard. I didnt hear them side by side with the UE, which I also like, but these are technologically superior. On a blind test, I was surprised how good they sounded.

Bought two so that Id have a HiRes portable sound system good for listening to music and still be able to use it to watch movies in my own personal space. Wow! Two of these in stereo mode have ample soundstage, and very good separation. Surprisingly they have good stereo imaging provided you supply hi-fi recordings. Also, one will use apt-x HD while two in stereo mode will only go up to apt-x. Still, very impressive little setup if you can get two. Also, make sure to download Music Flow App and update the spealer; itll sound Much Louder...

The product is great and sounds wonderful. The speaker has build in volume control as standalone so you can max the volume on the phone you are using and control how loud you want it on the speaker and this is completely independent as far as I can tell. The base boost is good and it has quite a lot of punch for the size of the speakers. The lighting feature is nice but Id like to have it be more customable then just selecting a color and or rainbow, but its still a cool touch that they light up. The speaker can get really loud and the pause/play button being skip forward and back is a nice touch as the button layout on top is nice. The back cover is a tad harder to get off than most of the waterproof speakers that Ive used but its not too hard as long as you have something to unwedge it, but it being hard to take off isnt a bad thing as it makes sure that it stays secure so that water doesnt get in the speaker through the charging port or aux which is really bad. The charging time is 4 hours according to the online manual which is long especially with using the recommended 5V, 1.8 amp power adapter but 4 hours isnt too long but its enough to be inconvenient if you forgot to charge it before going out. The LCD battery light indicator also doesnt stay on like most speakers I have and requires you to hold the power button which I find to be a bit annoying but with the app you can view what the battery is at with what looks like its to the nearest 10 (doesnt show 84% but 80% instead). Overall though, it is a good speaker and decently loud one.

This is the best speaker I have ever owned, I used it at my previous job a lot (security guard), I use it less in my office job, but when I do, this thing makes a giant desk vibrate to the music. The RGB is poorly implemented, it doesnt flash to the music very well. I did take this to the 4th of july parade to play patriotic music while I was in the parade, it started to rain and this speaker got rain and mud on it, fortunately it survived and it was easy to clean. I love the sound quality and the noise level, it wasnt loud enough for a parade though, so if you plan on using this in a noisy environment you should look elsewhere. Its loud enough for me and it makes my music sound so much better.

Update
The charging port didnt last very long. I cant charge it without wiggling the cord around for a few minutes. I have to get a different speaker, I love the sound quality, but it only accepted the stock cable and the dimensions are different than a normal type c cord, I believe a normal type c cord is what ruined the port to begin with. Ill be a different speaker and hope the sound quality is as good as this one.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nothings perfect, but were getting there

I was hesitant to buy something without a knob adjuster, and Im still constantly disappointed at the lack of one here. The volume buttons jump way too much and you MUST use your audio source (phone, computer, etc.) to fine tune the audio levels so that it doesnt suck. A problem that IS avoided by something like a knob. And the pause/play/forward/back button is an interesting concept, but less is not more here. Very unintuitive and clunky, and simply pausing and playing a song takes a pretty long time to respond.

Overall, bad controls with EXTREME room for improvement.

But the good outweighs the bad.

Audio fidelity is awesome for this price range. However it does have some odd viewing angles sometimes. For a clearer and more direct sound, youd be inclined to be facing the speaker directly, and the less head-on youre facing it, the more it gets muddied out, but ever so slightly. Still great listening angles regardless, it just gets noticeably better the more unobstructed your listening experience is.

Durability and rubber grip are also pluses, no complaints there.

So youre looking for a GOOD quality bluetooth speaker, with great battery life, and wont break if it falls 4 feet. This... is a good option to consider. I know first-hand there are speakers with MUCH better controls, and I encourage everyone to not settle for volume buttons and rather go for a knob.

Yo la compré para dar clases de AquaFitness y da súper buen funcionamiento, resiste muy bien la humedad, quizá le falta un poco más de volumen, pero eso lo solucioné comprando otra bocina igual y la coloqué en otro punto de la alberca pues lo padre es que puedes sincronizar ambas bocinas sin cables mediante Bluetooth y dan un sonido stereo fantástico.

5.0 out of 5 stars Que la bocina se puede enlazar con otra de la misma marka
