How bad are the ‘visible scratches’ they state? Is this worth it?
Forget the scratches. These are simply the best sounding Bluetooth speakers on the planet and at this price just buy it.

Agreed let's not but these are a fraction of the price of Bose and at £41 better bang for your buck.
Not sure why the £169 RRP is relevant. They're available new for £96.

This is still a great price compared to that, but listing a supposed RRP is daft.

I have the normal one and that honestly sounds terrible compared to a beats pill and even more so the JBL charge 2+ - I appreciate this may sound completely different though. But like the normal one, that had loads of reviews saying it was amazing and my own opinion of the sound couldn’t have been further from it.

JBL Charge 4 would be my pick normally but I’ve not heard this one in person. So long as returns are fine it’s not a huge gamble if you don’t like the sound signature. It is a bit of personal preference but the normal sized one just had no real low end, the passive radiators on the JBL Charge seems to help a lot with that. It’s not as “tight” but at £100~ mark it’s do-able
Does this have Bluetooth 5? I bought an Anker speaker a couple of months ago and regret it massively, as I can't use it in conjuncyion with video, because the lag causes it to be miles out of sync.

No not as good as the JBL Charge Series 2+, once you pump up the volume the distortion quickly becomes an issue, also the the JBL just sound clearer.
My two "used-like new" I ordered arrived today today also. One was still bagged up in the box (like new) and the other had a damaged box, looked thrown into the box and even appeared as 'Rick's megaboom' in the Bluetooth scan lol cheers Rick... Tbh I'd say that's the condition I'd expect the "used - good condition" ones to be like
Ordered one to see what it's like if no good will go in fleabay

I got a netgear nighthawk for half the amazon pric and it said it had scratches, it didn't have one. Buy and send back if needed.
Is Lite the small one?

You lost me at Beats Pill.
Got one some months back for £76, it's pretty decent but I wish it played below 60hz. No distortion at full volume which is nice, it's pretty good sounding and a bargain at £42!

Lite comes without a charging plug. The small one is called 'BOOM' (no Mega).

Lol 'Beats Pill', do people still use those! The reviews of the Beats Pill suggest it has nearly no bass at all. I've got the JBL Charge 2+ and Flip 3 and 4, and the Megaboom flattens all of them for raw power and clarity (at lower volumes though, the JBLs are better). I also have the smaller Boom and it sounds great, a bit lacking in low-end but clarity is unmatched and better than the larger units. If I had to pick a portable speaker right now, it'd be something from Ultimate Ears without doubt.

Buy a 2nd so they link up sound is class then
I can see it for 64.50 now.

I’m not keen on it either, it was just as an additional point of comparison. It’s Leo is at least there though albeit a bit lacking and terrible above 50% volume on most tracks
I got my used - as new one today also. Box was damaged, had been opened the plug and lead were unused the speaker itself was unmarked

The sound is ok - not amazing at £36 it’s a bargain, but at RRP I would have been disappointed

My HomePod sounds far better in comparison.

I’d agree, the beats pill bass is lacking still for my taste. I’d also agree the JBL isn’t quite as clear in the high end either. The UE Boom I have could be defective for all I know, I don’t have or know anyone with another to compare it to unfortunately. I’ve read the charge 4 is supposed to be good and since I’m okay either the charge 2+ I’m probably gonna opt for it.

Annoyingly, the couple of small speakers from Bose that I’ve had the chance to listen to have all been good. A little heavy on the bass (which I’m keen on) but still pretty darn clear in the mids and highs. I just find it hard to justify their price points most of the time.

I have a thing about small portable speakers though I don't know why as I never get to use them really! The Bose ones are good but suffer from bad QC and customer support; they sound good but are poor value - comparable to the Megaboom and Charge 4 is the Soundlink Mini II but it's twice the price usually. JBL or UE series are all great - so it depends what sounds better to you. All I can say really is that if you're playing something loud then you need the bigger speakers and if at moderate volume the smaller speakers have better 'agility' - the big speakers all sound muddy at low volumes so don't assume the large speakers can do it all as they can't (for best performance). The only speakers (off the top of my head) I've come across that are good at any volume are the Harman/Kardon Onyx Mini and Onyx Studios.

I should hope a £300 HomePod speaker sounds better! Then again a Sonos Play 3 and Echo Studio sound better than a HomePod and cost much less...

I get that. But a comparison at rrp is reasonable - and at rrp I would have been disappointed.

The real RRP is £99 though. It got revised down over a year ago and it’s frequently been on offer having been superseded by the Megablast and Megaboom 3.

Ok - so a year ago when the HomePod came out...

Anyway regardless, the point remains true. At this price it is a steal, at its RRP there are better.

It was over a year ago but I can’t remember the exact time as I never paid more than £80 for mine. But you’d expect the HomePod to sound better and at £300 it’s not actually very good either - I assume you didn’t buy an Apple product for the sound quality or no-one would ever buy AirPods either...

Alright.
Anyone received theirs ? Can you tell me what condition it arrived in ?

Received today, it’s basically “as new”, they are now on for £55 as “very good” on Amazon Warehouse.
had my "Very Good" 2 delivered today, from postponed delivery on the previous listing

First one, all looks immaculate, could probably have passed as new other than a couple of small tears on teh box

The 2nd one however, the speaker itself is not in a bag, and some stupid ar***ole at Amazon has slapped a big sticker onto the speaker itself. With the barcode etc on the label, it was WE 09.11.2018 / SNP 21.11.2018 / WA 09.12.2018. Peeled that off but it obv leaves its telltale signs

Each of the cables in box etc all have the stickers on or wrapped around too

So presuming those dates correlate to return dates from someone, and when it was perhaps checked and certified ok.
It's flat as a pancake (the other seems to have some charge), but that is worrying for a li-on battery to be sat unused for a full year!!
Oh and underneath the speaker when removed it, was the lower half of someones return RMA slip of paper, in polish. I tried typing into google translate some bits to see if anything useful of what was supposedly wrong with it, but no help

Thanks - the info on the return note unfortunately was just the generic amazon return info. There was a couple of lines I hoped were perhaps filled in by the original returner.


That unit would not turn on at first yesterday. After I plugged it in for a few minutes, it came up, and then when setting up on the app it reported 80% battery for a time, tho not long after seemed to change to around 55% battery. I let it firmware update etc and sound etc seemed to be ok, but if the dates are true from those stickers have my concerns about the battery quality. I have charged it up fully, I'm going to have to test it over the course of the next few days to see what real time use is actually like.

In the meantime I went to amazon chat to try to establish what actual warranty I had with these, as they are meant to be for xmas presents for my 2 young 'uns

I normally get good CS on Amazon Chat but the person I was speaking with was pretty useless, just seemed to enjoy telling me they are used and not new, and that I had a 70odd day return window. Was not remotely bothered by the fact that some idiot decided it was right to put stickers onto the front of the device itself too. Eventually I managed to get an answer of 6 months warranty though
