    For such a small unit I guess you can’t really complain about this device. Sound is pretty decent for something so small. Easy to use and straightforward to use.
    Personally though I much prefer the “Ortizan” Bluetooth speaker at a few pounds more with 15w more richer sound and bass but slightly bigger and heavier.
    However this little unit is impressive considering it really is so tiny.
    7.5/10 would be my fair and honest score.
    I certainly would not discount this for holiday travel etc. Great value for money.

    Small & Practical without the punch

    As others have said, for the size and cost of this speaker, it’s quality is exceptionally good. So much so, that I went straight back out and bought a 2nd one for my partner.

    A couple of features that I didn’t particularly spot when I bought it. There’s a built-in FM Radio. It works off the USB cable as the antenna, so not the greatest pcik-up, but no problem getting local stations. Also, it has a microphone, so you can use the speaker to take and place calls without having to stop what you’re doing.

    If I was being extremely picky, there are a couple of negative aspects. No bag or case (what do you want for the price), and doesn’t automatically shut off if it’s not active – it has a manual sliding on/off switch.

    In summary, don’t hesitate to go and grab one of these.

    This tiny “boombox” was a birthday gift and a wonderful present!
    It’s tiny, slightly heavy and therefore sturdy, it has very good quality sound for its size and a durable battery.
    It has been connected to various devices such as phones and laptops to produce great sound quality.
    I tried carrying it round the house on my shoulder because it is like a portable boombox but in the style of Back-to-the-Future only 10cm3 or even smaller. What a lovely speaker!

    Pro’s
    Great quality and volume sound output.
    Built in FM radio.
    32gb Msd memory slot plays all your own music.
    Connect’s to Bluetooth devices easily, no breaks.
    All day battery life.
    Sound volume amazingly fills a room.

    Con’s

    Swapping Bluetooth devices is fiddly.
    Bit slow charging.

    Absolutely brilliant piece of kit, and excellent value for money, but be prepared for it’s small size, you will not expect the output you get. !!

    I am amazed at the good features of this speaker. A flashing blue LED while it seeks BLUETOOTH connectivity, which reverts to steady when it has connected. The same light flashes white when it needs charging, steady while it charges and off when charged. The volume is good and it can be controlled via the speaker buttons or the source device buttons. The BASS output is just amazingly good, especially for the size of the speaker. Not only such good features, but it looks just beautiful too.

    This is not going to fill your room with fantastic sounding music for your big party. This is a very capable speaker, and is perfect for a small space [bedroom etc.] It does have a great quality of sound, but this suffers as the volume increases, so if you are looking for something to blast out music this isn’t the one. I brought this on holiday recently, and this served extremely well on the balcony playing music via bluetooth from the phone. Sounded great and battery lasted so long I only had to recharge once in the 2 weeks.

    higher volume distorted the sound, especially bass notes. Audiobooks sounded amazing from this little device.

    Bluetooth pairing was a breeze, just switch the device on and scan for it on your phone.

    this device is very portable, very small and compact [about half the size of a can of coke]

    overall, well worth it for the scenarios above, not worth it if you are after something to entertain a crowd.

    This thing is Great for the size. I find that when parked on different surfaces, the sound quality improves. ie. Table surface, sounds more bassy and Bigger sound than on a harder surface IMO.

    I put a 32GB Micro SD card in it full of mp3’s and it plays them with no problem. Holding the Volume button up or down for two seconds takes you to the next or previous mp3 track.
    I had to pop out the Micro sd card to connect Bluetooth to my Tablet.

    To use the Radio/Tuner, it needs the Micro USB Cable plugged in because it becomes the Antenna. After pressing the MODE Button it has a radio Hiss… then… Hold the Play button for 2 seconds and leave it to search and tune into stations. Afterwards, you can hold the up or down volume button for 2 seconds to flick to the next or previous Radio Stations.
    The instructions could be easier to read, but it get’s you there. I totally recommend this Thing for the money. The sound quality and volume is Really Good. Plus it’s quite small and convenient to take it with you.
    Remember, if you want the Radio On, it MUST have a Micro USB lead plugged in. (The other end of the cable does not need to be plugged in the wall socket to get radio Stations).

    NO…. I am not the Seller and I’m not affilliated with the Manufacturer or anyone…. I’m just sharing my feelings and Tips because it will help you get it running quicker, instead of struggling through the instructions like I had to. 🙂 Happy Christmas

    I’ve resisted buying a compact bluetooth speaker for years, never felt I had the need, but I got back from a recent trip and realised it would have come in handy. I saw this one at a good price and Anker is carving out a great reputation for quality reasonably priced products so went for it. Now I know lots of people rave about small bluetooth speakers but really I am so impressed with this speaker I stare at it and wonder how they can get that quality sound out of it. Superb (and I rarely write reviews, just felt I had to here).

    I use this to connect to my web radio. Rather than drag that around, I just connect this speaker to it (takes around 10 seconds) and then I’m good to go.

    I use this everyday when I go into the bathroom for a shower. I’m impressed with the general sound quality. I have noticed that foil-backed plasterboard can really wreak havoc with its connectivity but I’ve found a “sweet spot” in the bathroom that works well. Oh, if the microwave is turned on in the kitchen (next to the bathroom) that, too, wreaks havoc with the signal.

    But I like this speaker; it’s compact, has a long battery life (I’ve only charged it up once in several weeks) and has a great sound.

    I was amazed at the top quality and value for money of these two products.
    Being of a certain age (pensioner) I am not techy and as my old iPod dock died along with my iPod I needed to replace my sound system for playing music using my iPhone in two spaces. One for my Yoga classes and one for physical warm ups for a choir which I sing with.
    This speaker is wonderful – excellent sound quality for playing calming background music for a yoga class whilst being able to fill a large space with Christina Aquilera’s “Beautiful” not even a max volume.
    Cannot recommend this product enough – bought the case to protect the speaker as I transport it in a backpack on my bike!

    Purchased this for use by children in their bedrooms – really surprised at how good the sound is. Have several items made by Anker and none have disappointed. It came partially charged and despite a few hours use, there hasn’t been need to charge them yet. I ended up getting one for my dad for Christmas to help boost the audio in facetime calls. He was also very impressed (and managed to connect it himself which is a testament to how well bluetooth works!). Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this.

    I bought this with the case because I foresaw dust issues down the line, it doesn’t fit in the holder in its case but I do tend to use the case when it isn’t in the car. My car speaker sounds like a fart-box and I was getting really annoyed so this was a must-buy for me.

    Now I stick this little speaker in my cupholder and listen to audiobooks all day. It’s great with music also and positioned correctly you can experience quite a nice bass sound.

    The item feels like a quality build and has a nice weight to it. I don’t know what else to say, no regrets!

    I had tried a few of these types of speakers but they all seem to come with flashing lights and a load of bells and whistles. I wanted a simple speaker that just sounds right and this hit the spot. Easy to connect, looks good with no distracting lights and connects without issue.

    I have found Anker products to be really good and seem to knocks post off some of the more expensive products. Really pleased with this.

    I bought this as a birthday gift for my sister so had to wait until she opened it and as she’s a first time user of a Bluetooth speaker I pounced and connected it to my WiFi. Very impressive bass and the overall sound quality is excellent. Such a neat design too and I got her the rose gold which is very stylish and so tiny. I own multiple Bluetooth speakers which I really like but this one is so impressive it made me jealous! I can’t justify buying any more of them right now but this would be my first choice if I wanted another. It would be perfect for travelling with. I chose the brand above others as I have power banks by Anker which have been brilliant.

    Purchased as a gift but the recipient enjoys it. The sound is much louder than expected from such a small speaker, the sound isn’t too tinny either which can often be a problem with speakers like this. Set up was easy, and it was gifted to someone older who is starting to struggle with technology but they managed to get it all working and connected to phones and tablets with no issues. They are using it for watching movies on their ipad while they are stopped in a vehicle for work. They say the sound is much better than listening on the ipad alone, even without having it on the loudest volume. All in all a good little speaker.

    Thus is compact, easy to use and has a good sound. The only reason I’d give it a 4 rather than 5 star is that i have an easy comparison to make with my partners which is twice the size and price. You get a more substantial sound out of it as might be expected.
    I would not swap though as mine is easier to carry about and fits perfecting in the cup holder in my car. That’s great as I can use it there without it moving about.
    I do love it, have only had it for a few months and think it should last years

    I bought this speaker when the small wired one I have used on my iphone for years finally died. I also use an Echo dot but also needed something that was battery powered. This speaker has exceeded expectations and I find myself using it instead of the Echo dot as well, as the sound quality is better, especially when listening to talking books. Would definitely recommend it.

    Read earlier reviews praising this particular unit and given the fact that this was my first foray into wireless speakers, I was wary. My main requirement was for the speaker to connect to my Sandisk mp3 player via an aux output. The lead was NOT included but I had a spare so good to go
    First thing to note the instructions are in minute writing – I had to get a magnifying glass to read them. Relatively easy to follow and connected/paired devices to it without a hitch
    Second thing to note is that the volume levels on the speaker are non-functional when connecting from an aux source eg the sound can only be controlled from the source eg mp3 player
    Third thing to note you need to charge the unit before use
    Overall worth ever penny – I was not at all disappointed

    Just got this last weekend basically to replace the one I was using that was my daughters. Great bit of kit for a portable speaker. Bluetooth, Auxiliary cable, and slot for a micro sd card plus a FM radio. Liked my daughters that much I had to get one. Only complaint is my daughters had her a few years and was 16 and she got a little carry bag with it but other than that its perfect for my needs. I had to download the instructions as well in pdf as the writing on the enclosed is tiny but no hardship, just a tip.

    I bought this for my wife because her music played through her phone’s speaker was getting on my nerves – sounded like mice singing in a biscuit tin. The sound of the Anker is remarkable for the size of the thing and for the price. Turns out that some of her music isn’t actually that bad!
    So, why pay more? And you can also buy a great little fitted case. Battery life is very good – my wife has been playing it for days and apparently hasn’t had to recharge it yet. (You have to charge it fully before first using it).
    Obviously I can’t vouch for it’s long-term reliability, but honestly for that price I’m not that bothered. (I paid a fortune for a Minirig for my daughter and that died after a few months).
    Highly recommended.

    Worked easily with phone it just automatically synced up to bluetooth. I was advised to buy connector cable as needed it for use with laptop but it didn’t work, just cut out all sound so that was a waste of money. It wouldn’t automatically sync with laptop, needed to actually turn off bluetooth on laptop and then let it connect and once that happened it was fine. Think it would be helpful if this was pointed out in sales blurb.

    I bought this for a specific reason. Like many I work from home on a laptop and spend many hours on a wired headset. I wanted to get rid of as many cables/peripherals as possible, so was after a speaker/phone, that I could use with MS Teams for calls. Like all Anker products the speaker is superbly built and easy to use. The rubber ring on the bottom is a great addition to stop it sliding about. Connecting to the laptop (windows 10) was easy enough and adding to Team was straightforward. Incoming calls and audio came through loud and clear but despite trying a few locations for the speaker, I was told I sounded like I was in the toilet (I definitely wasn’t). So back to the headset. Keeping the speaker for other uses but just be aware that if your primary reason for buying is the same as mine, this may not be best option.
