    4.0 out of 5 stars Very good for what it is 28 Aug 2010
    By G. Ward

    The MS500 bluetooth speaker is fairly small, around hand size.

    There is a single discrete on/off button/switch on the MS500. It automatically enters pairing mode at switch on and I've found pairing with two different mobile phones and my lap top to be nice and easy.

    Considering it's small size, the single speaker and the fact the music is transmitted to it via bluetooth, the sound quality it delivers is surprisingly good.

    The music volume is adequate for personal listening but it will not get anywhere near loud enough to get the floor shaking at a party. You can achieve slightly higher volume levels using alkaline batteries instead of rechargables, due to the slightly higher voltage they supply.

    That brings us to battery life, one of the down sides to the MS500. It is something of a battery eater. The claimed battery life of five hours is on the good side of what you can expect in continuous use.

    I like the little strap and carabiner for hanging the MS500 from a suitable hook or whatever is convenient. Another down side is that there are no flat surfaces on the roughly egg shaped MS500 which isn't ideal when you want to put it down somewhere where it might be subject to movement and want it to stay put... a little blob of Blu Tack does the job!

    At the time of writing the MS500 is available here on Amazon at some very heavily discounted prices making it very good value for money too.

    3.0 out of 5 stars First impressions 14 April 2011
    Verified Purchase
    I just received my MS500 this morning and have paired it to my phone (HTC Desire.) Pairing was very straightforward, and the MP3 player output straight to the speaker without any fuss.

    Disappointingly, even cranked up to maximum volume, I'll swear that the MS500 isn't quite as loud as the Desire's built-in speaker. Though from the point of view of sound quality, the MS500 wins hands-down. It actually has a decent amount of bass to it, whereas the built-in speaker in the Desire is understandably tinny.

    Of course the volume issue could be specific to the model of phone. It may have a particularly loud built-in speaker or it may send a quiet signal via Bluetooth.

    For the money, I'm perfectly happy. I plan to hang the speaker in the bathroom so that I can have tunes in the shower while my phone stays safely in another room.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Convenient Sound 7 July 2011
    By Chappy

    What a great convenient piece of kit. Just pop two AA cells in, pair it with your phone or laptop and you're away. No waiting for charge up time. What's worse than thinking of using something, pick it up and it's flat, not any more. Sound quality is very good, impressed.
