Got my daughter the version of this model that is solar powered. The sound is really quite exceptional--full of bass, distortion-free, and well- directed. Well-made and sturdy--will hold up nicely for outdoor use, unlike a lot of those flimsy little pod- type speakers. Pairs easily. Definitely one of the best values for this type of product.
Bluetooth means she can enjoy music in the sun while her expensive iPhone sits somewhere cool.
