Well made, sturdy design.
Surprisingly good bass levels and loud volume output without distortion.
Excellent battery life.
Useful, rugged travel case.
Although initial pairing was smooth, I have found that using the built in line-in socket can leave me unable to subsequently use the device again with a Bluetooth connection without completely resetting it and recreating the Bluetooth connection to my phone...
The battery cover seems ill-fitting. It is secure, but protrudes
The slot/token solution to get the speaker to stand up is not a 'feature' - it is a cheap alternative to actually fitting a pop-out stand - why?
Having bought spare batteries (it uses a standard Nokia mobile battery) it runs out the bundled battery is slightly thinner than the standard, making the cover protrude even further.
Most of the issues I have are cosmetic and so not really relevant, but the pairing failure I experienced after using a line-in connection almost resulted in me returning the device. It was luck rather than judgement that got it going again, and I will be too nervous to ever use the hard connection again!. However, since I bought it for Bluetooth connection primarily, I can live with that. These issues are largely outweighed by the surprisingly good sound quality, the bass and volume levels still impress me every time I use it.
