3.0 out of 5 stars Decent, but better available 23 Jan 2014
By Chris
Colour Name:White|Verified Purchase
Having bought this based on the positive Amazon reviews (and the fact that it was reduced to £100 on a lightning deal), I must admit to being slightly disappointed when it arrived (perhaps based on my expectations being set so high).
Firstly the positives: The packaging is impressive, and the speaker looks excellent, with a great design and a quality feel to it. Pairing was quick and straightforward. The replaceable grills are a good idea, however so far I've not found anyone who sells them in the UK (apart from Damson - where they are out of stock!).
The main downside for me is the audio quality. It's not bad, but just not as good as I was expecting. It's difficult to put into words exactly, however the best way I can describe it is a little tinny (distant sounding with a bit of an echo) and as a result slightly lacking clarity. I also have a Bose sound-link mini (which was a Christmas gift from my wife around the same time as I bought the Oyster) which absolutely blew me away in terms of it's punchy sound quality (even without aptX) and far superior to the Oyster when compared side by side (although I ended up keeping both speakers).
In summary, the Oyster is a decent bluetooth speaker that just lacks a little in the sound department to get full marks. Anyone looking for a portable bluetooth speaker I advise you try the Bose..... It's a bit more expensive but you won't be disappointed ( it really is so much better than the Oyster).

3.0 out of 5 stars Its OK 3 Feb 2014
Colour Name:White|Verified Purchase
Got this today via a daily deal. It was approximately half Amazon's usual price. For what I paid for it I'm happy BUT I would have returned it had I paid full price for it.

The sound is reasonable using my iphone which is the main purpose I bought it for. My main gripe is that I have to select the EQ very carefully to make it sound decent. Choose the wrong one and it sounds like something you'd buy from a market stall!

Good size. Needs placing carefully in a room for the best effect.

Came almost fully charged. Posh box. Fast set up.

Like the title - its OK. If you get the chance to buy it half price then I'd go for it. If not don't bother. For what the manufacturers are charging you could probably get a small Bose.

UPDATE

After using it for a few weeks here's a few more points.

1) The Bluetooth breaks up frequently even when the iphone is right next to the device. I listen to audiobooks a lot and if I use Bluetooth I miss content and it destroys the flow of the story. So despite having purchased it because it has Bluetooth I always use the cable.

2)The size is good but I always feel like I'm about to drop it. Maybe that's because I am a woman and have smaller hands. But I have to be careful especially when attaching the cable (which I always have to do - see point 1.)

3) The amount of bass is intrusive at times.

I don't dislike it enough to return it but I wouldn't buy it again if I had the ability to time travel.

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly good 26 Mar 2014
Colour Name:White|Verified Purchase
Ok, i bought this speakers for £43.46, and i must say for this price this item is somewhat special!

- sound quality 4,5/5 (good bass, good quality sound, very loud)
- connectivity 5/5 (simple and fast, works perfect)
- battery 5/5 (still didn't charge it since i bought it (a week before this review), i use it every day, so far so good)
- price 5/5 (for the price simply there isn't anything that comes close, even if it was £100+ would be an good choice)

- I truly recommend this to anyone who needs a speaker to use with the smartphone

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty dam good for discounted price 1 April 2014
Colour Name:White|Verified Purchase
This speaker is pretty good for the discounted price now available.
Sure the sound can be a bit muddled but all the small sound systems are a compromise.
I have several units to compare (jbl flip, minirig, altec imt810 etc) and for £40 this unit is good value.
Bass can be booming, top end can be overwhelmed - but it tries very hard :)

4.0 out of 5 stars Good value for the offer price 13 Mar 2014
Colour Name:White|Verified Purchase
I wanted the bose but it's just to expensive, at £42 this unit is fantastic value, the sound, although not as good as the bose is very good and as the box says it does go loud. There is a slightly muffled sound on some music but overall it is very good. It comes in very well presented packaging and has a premium feel to it. Overall for £42 you can't go far wrong but for the rrp you would be slightly disappointed.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good but not at higher volume levels 3 Mar 2014
By stu
Colour Name:White|Verified Purchase
The speaker sound was good at lower levels but if u applied any kind of volume it would distort I even tried to get an equilizer app for my iphone but it did not seem to help much it was well built and solid but because of noise issues I returned it, this is the first purchase I have ever had to return to amazon but they were great in dealing with it, perhaps part of the problem was that I sound tested the small bose Bluetooth speaker before I brought this, if you just like classical music this speaker might be the one for you great build quality and good sound at lower level volume

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good for a short time 28 Feb 2014
By orange
Colour Name:Black|Verified Purchase
Initially I was not very happy with the sound from the speaker. However, after a few days running in the sound greatly improved - enough for a 13 by 10 bedroom.

The white looks a bit shiny but you get used to that. Otherwise the unit seems well made.

After less than a week the main speaker unit gave up and all I had was the tinny sound from the side speakers. Returned and refunded quickly.

Given it 4 stars since I accept that some products simply fail.
