Wait, just in case you missed it, you get stickers! Now you may think that I’m being sarcastic, but really I’m not. I get all excited when I get a new toy and I get some awesome stickers! This is how I usually get:
Now that my sticker fit is over, lets talk about the sound quality. For the size of the device you get good midrange fidelity that is crisp and comes across great with vocals and music that has a pop sound. Bass port notwithstanding, the bass won’t rattle the roof but still provides a great experience and gives you exactly what you expect for a portable speaker this size. Overall i find this portable speakers to be one of my favorite portable speakers in this size range.
I absolutely love the design and functional elements of the shell and would certainly recommend this to anyone who wants a speaker with some edge!
