Just picked mine up. I have to say the sound is pretty damn good from this tiny device!

Just reserved one, many thanks Marjy

Thanks. Ordered and collected. Sound better than expected for the size. Great buy for £11.99.

Bought one before Xmas. Fab sound for something so small. Good battery life too.

Picked mine up & am playing it now, as above posts, sounds much better than expected - SUPERB!

Reserved to collect on Monday - thanks OP heat added!

Already posted, but still thanks for sharing as this is a great little speaker.

I got 2 questions:

1 - Battery Life?
2 - Will that stream through a brick wall 2 meters from the source?

Assuming it's the same and the one I got (diff colour/name but identical otherwise) the answers are

1 - about 2-4 hours depending on the volume you run it at
2 - probably but don't hold your breath, people walking around a room can break a Bluetooth connection - they're moody

Thanks for the reply.
So battery life isn't that great then. I will most probably play it at full volume, so max 2 hours?
In regards to the range - there will be noone walking in between the speaker and my pc. I want to stream radio while taking a shower and there is just the wall between my room and the bathroom.

great deal. saw something similar on Ebuyer the other day, similar specs for £8.99, £12.57 with postage but a bargain if you're ordering anyway ebuyer.com/386…p04

You must have very long showers, what are you doing in there??

Cheers op, just reserved last one in local Argos.

Awesome, Ordered. Thanks

Just grabbed the last one in Argos (Basildon). Many Thanks.

Don`t know about battery life as I only just bought it, but tested the distance I could go away from it with my Iphone, and got to about 12 metres with 2 solid brick walls/steel doors in between - I was pretty impressed!

I find that Bluetooth speakers and headphones generally require line of sight. I found that even cupping my hand over the device breaks up the music.

Bluetooth needs a clear path - it can bounce around corners but it's not great at dealing with changes in the 'route' (so when people open and close doors or walk through the transmission is can drop the connection).

It was designed for short distances - pocket->head or dashboard-> head, it's not designed for use across multiple rooms.

That said, I can operate our version of this in the kitchen with the iPad in the front room (dining room inbetween) so long as no-one is walking around.

If you're looking for something LOUD - something that will fill a room with sound - this is not the thing you want.

It's a mono speaker, no stereo separation - some bass but nothing amazing - it's great for use in the kitchen etc. for general music - it replaced a cheap supermarket boombox and sounds about 80% as good (but that took up space and couldn't connect to the iPad)

It's nowhere near good enough if you care about how your music sounds tho - try this

It's about the cheapest thing I'd even consider for that task - realistically I'd get a Bluetooth receiver and attach it to a PROPER audio system tho - the receivers are about £15-20 and plug-in to any line-in.

Anyone know if this is android compatible?

It's a Bluetooth speaker - it will work with anything which supports Bluetooth stereo connections (A2DP) - so yes

I don't think this is for me but I have added as it looks really good. There is only 1 left in Harrow on the Hill - Argos store. If some body wants to grab it, be quick.

cold as it's not a Bose....

only kidding, not a bad deal but a bit of a weak speaker, probably fine for in car use or small rooms but anything more substantial this thing will stutter and struggle with it. should work with anything that had Bluetooth though, so android iOS blackberry and windows phone

30-40 minutes sometimes. I like to contemplate the mysteries of the universe

Well, I've been using a cheap Veho Portable Rechargeable Speaker, so this one will definitely be an upgrade. And no wires, so I don't have to bring my phone to the bathroom
I know it doesn't sound great - it's perfect for me.

Just picked one up, it is pretty good. Well worth £12.

Just picked one up! Hot!

great little speaker especially for the price

We bought one before Christmas for £15 and it's worth every penny of that. If you want to host a rave, forget about it, but for use in the shower this is perfect. The Wife and I both have Android phones and we have no problems streaming music (and calls I might add as it has a mic) at an acceptable volume to hear whilst in the shower. Battery life is great, we got ours about a week before Christmas and only had to charge it last Wednesday. The Wife also listens to it whilst getting ready, so the battery life ain't too bad. Obviously for continuous use, you might want to consider something else, but for listening to for short periods it's top banana.

Cheers,

BS...

just picked it up, brilliant little speaker, amazing value

Tested with a 3gs, ipad 2, ipod touch, iphone 5 and an SGS2. All work great. Super value for money and big sound for such a small thing!!
