fleshlight?

I've had one of these for a couple of years now and cannot recommend it highly enough............................ Brilliant bit of kit and worth every penny. The charge will last all day and we even took it to the V fest last year for music in the tent and got a whole weekend out of it!
Sound quality is VERY good for a system of this size (about the size of a red bull can), our festival neighbours were hugely impressed
BUY ONE...................... you wont regret it.

I've logged in specifically to add kudos to this when i seen it posted whilst browsing .

It is quite simply a fantastic piece of kit i use it instead of my laptop speakers and the sounds amazing!! M8s whove seen it all want one. The bluetooth i dont use but tried it out to play music from fone works great not a huge range but the sounds soo impressive.

if you have a minimalist look this will seriously fit right in.

Ive seen it over a hundred quid on ebay i paid little over a tenner on play.com for mine quite a while back see now the price has gone up slightly.

It comes with your cable to connect to usb to charge it, mains also adaptor and your 3mm jack for laptop/ipod etc also has a wee black velour sock thing to keep it in .

Treat yourself

looks like you get a £2 mp3 voucher to use on amazon with this purchase

Mine broke within months not really using it, distance is rubbish few meters + walls, looks nice and plays as well but...

Back to £16.99 at Play now. ]CLICK
Although was £9.99 when I bought mine last year. Works with my SE C902, i-Phone, Nokia 6300 and i-Pod Video with Gear 4 bluetooth adaptor. Brilliant bit of kit.

how easy is it to connect to laptop, what settigns doyou need to do ?

Buy Buy Buy!!
U wont regret it, great sound and well built bit of kit!
Once u show ur mates, they will also want one!

This is a great product but the price is pretty high. I think I got mine a few years ago for £9.99 at play.com.

Bought one ages ago and still use it with my laptop, not too bad through walls either.

Microphone isn't great but speakers are really good.

looks ideal for our jogglers

i just plug the 3.5mm jack into laptop bam the btube takes over simples:thumbsup:

I bought this over a year ago from play.com for £14.99 and the sound quality is superb..i would pay more for it if i knew the quality b4 buying....dont listen to the negative comments...theres always people who wanna whinge!!!

got one for £11.99 from Play a while ago on the back of some ludicrously good reviews. Found it to be ok...nothing out of the ordinary and bluetooth seemed a bit flaky. For £12.00 the build quality is more than adequate but don't expect miracles!! I use it via the 3.5mm jack into my pinnacle soundbridge and I cannot complain- looks the part too.

I bought one last year for almost this price on ebay, then found them for £14.99 delivered on Play.com. Great for camping, BBQs, in the bathroom etc.
Very good for the price as long as you're realistic with your expectations.
A charge lasts forever. The only downside is a the proprietary cable. Also does hands free.
One speaker has stopped working, but that's fine.

14,99 delivered as Buy it now - on ebay

Willl this connect with the Iphone 3G over Bluetooth?

just wanted to say I got this last year when it was £9.99 from play.com and it is a great product.

[LIST]
[*]surprisingly loud
[*]decent bass
[*]looks great
[*]charges from USB
[/LIST]

I use mine as a bathroom speaker so I can keep my phone outside and beam music to it, which works great. I've only tried the mic once but it worked ok

This is an awesome little speaker set, same as a few others here I bought mine off play.com when they were 9.99 delivered, and worth every penny of that.

No problems with the mic either for me, works pretty well as a hands free system.

Thanks, just what I was looking for :-)

It's £13.99 on play now

play.com/Ele…tml

Very tempted...

Does this have AV out? I'm looking for a bluetooth receiver to use with my current sound system.

EDIT: complete w*nkers, said it's too late to cancel order so have to pay the higher price :x

It's only 3 quid but that's besides the point :x:x:-(

As I found out after I bought this, the passcode for the Bluetooth pairing is "1234" rather than the usual "0000".

I had a Bluetooth audio sender with the standard passcode of "0000", which won't connect to this, and I'm struggling to find a cheap Bluetooth audio transmitter with the "1234" passcode to hook up to B-Tube.

Any suggestions any1?

If you go to checkout it takes you to the Amazon site!

I bought one of these the other day off ebay £14.99 except when it came i realised i ordered the lite version which dont have bluetooth DOH! But the sound is good for what it is. I then ordered the INTEMPO BTS-01 mains bluetooth speaker instead which is slighty a better sound :whistling:

Fantastic little speaker this. I bought one after it was recommended to me. After having had it a few days I bought a bunch of them for friends for Christmas. I actually reviewed it on my blog if people want any more details (and the couple of very minor niggles): techloving.net/201…tml

Well worth the money if you ask me.

firemountain , i meant connecting sound through bluetooth
thx

Great little speaker but had mine a couple of years now and only paid 9.99 so maybe a little overpriced

Just connected mine to Nokia 5800 via bluetooth superb output..

Can't get it connected to my Sony Vaio tho'
