To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I've owned different pillow speakers for 35 years and this is my favorite! It's flat and actually has some low frequency sound. The volume control on the cord makes it easy to tweak the volume without having to pick up my phone and hunt for the volume control. It calls for a AAA battery, but works without one, I guess if you want it louder, you'd want a battery, but it's plenty loud without it.
