Connection

Connection:
"Also, the speakers sound quality gets fuzzy as the battery dies1 10: 7- The lack of an actual volume control when connected bluetooth is a big downside."
_
"It has excellent battery life, decent bluetooth connectivity distance, and quality sound (although like I said before you get what you pay for in this area)."
_
"It is easy to connected it with your phone via Bluetooth, but if for some reason the Bluetooth does not work you can also connect it with a 3mm cable."
_
"On transportation: the Bluetooth is wonderful at retaining a connection."
_
"As matter of fact, the cell phone charging unit actually charged the speaker to (its initial) full capacity in just under two hours as compared to the eight hours if it would've been plugged into a laptop or a PC (per the owner's manual).Although the Bluetooth (paring auto sync) connectivity feature works great (I tried it on three of my phones), I really won't be using this speaker that way for the most part."
_
"Bluetooth connection is the greatest!"

Control

Control:

"The problem is in the extras: The lack of volume control is annoying, especially when it jacks up to max as soon as you connect."
_
"I had no way to turn down the volume because some ... in my opinion ... not so bright person, at this products design center, thought it would be adequate to use the phone or tablets volume keys to control the volume... WELL THEY WERE WRONG at this price point I am not expecting a cut down blue tooth speaker.. even the cheapest blue tooth speaker I have,( $20.00) has a volume controller."
_
"What I enjoy is the Bluetooth option, which allows me to be in control of what I want to hear from whichever room I'm in."
_
"Sound controls are easy to use from phone settings."
_
"What I dislike about it is that I think a good powered speaker should have dedicated volume control."

WELL THEY WERE WRONG at this price point I am not expecting a cut down blue tooth speaker.. even the cheapest blue tooth speaker I have,( $20.00) has a volume controller."
_
"What I found is not all devices control the volume adequately to manage the sound.. .On one device.. it was either full blaring sound or silence.. no amt of adjustment of the volume on that unit would control the sound."
