Editors Didn't Like

  • Speaker requires its own AC adapter (not MicroUSB) for charging; no carrying case included
  • Minor distortion on seriously deep bass at top volumes. A bit overpriced
  • Relatively uninspired design, Difficult multiunit pairing, Heavy
  • Takes several hours to warm up the speaker drivers. Only one color available so far
