I took this little baby out of the box, and at first could not figure out
how to even turn it on. But after giving it an extensive brailling, I
discovered a soft spot on the bottom of the unit. I pushed it and low and
behold it turned on
with a musical intro. I then paired it to my I phone and played a song.
Wow! It blew me away. The sound was exceptionally good coming from such a
small speaker. I was very impressed.
. I demoed it for my friends and they all ordered one. I also took it to an
I Access I phone meeting and shared it with the group. They were surprised
at the quality of the sound. Most of the members ended up ordering one or
two for themselves.
This little thing makes a great traveling speaker and
excellent for the on the go excursions.
