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.
This speaker is everything I was hoping for.. clear sounding.. un-detectable through the pillow.. partner couldn't hear it and long cable. The only negative is the jack won't go into mine or my partner's phone with a phone case on.. and with the case on, it's a little loose. But the cable is long enough for my phone to sit on the bedside table undisturbed.
This is my second speaker. The first one went out in 8 months. Bought a second & reinforced the end that plugs in with a straw & tape to keep the teeny tiny wires from bending & breaking in the cord. Well, this one only lasted 5 months. Mind you, I am a gentle person. I know how to take care of my stuff. This has been used nightly but no undue strain on the cord. I place my phone away from my pillow so it doesn't even get moved in use. Going back to the $10 cheapies that last just as long or longer. So disappointed. Could be such an easy fix. All they have to do is use a slightly larger gauge wire.
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.
