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.
Update: After having used this speaker for some time I am removing another star from the rating (down to 3 now) and more often than not, it fails in one way or another if being used via Bluetooth to pair to a phone (iPhone 6s in this case). It starts OK, but during the call, the audio deteriorates to such a point that I have to stop using the speaker and go back to just using the phone. It's either the other participants can't clearly hear me, or I can't hear them. I've not had anything similar when using via USB with the PC, so it must be something to do with the Bluetooth function. Not great for the price of the speaker, expected more to be honest.
This speaker is definitely well made and has great sound quality and features. I’ve so far used this for listening to music while working, holding 1-1 Skype calls, and also having multi-participant calls when the conference phone in one of our meeting rooms failed. We had 5 attendees in the room for the call. On each occurrence, the speaker performed brilliantly. Music is crisp and clear without being too bass heavy, during 1-1 calls I could be heard clearly and I could hear the other participant clearly also. During the conference call, even though the room was reasonably sized and the desk was an odd shape, everyone could hear everyone else on the call and it worked perfectly. It connects instantly to any device previously paired to it (I’ve paired it to my iPhone as well as my laptop), both recognised by the speaker as smart phones! My only negative point if any would be on price. I just feel that this product is slightly too highly priced for what it is. There is no question that it is a well made product that’s very high quality and easy to carry in your laptop bag etc, but I’m just not sure I would pay as much as this for what is effectively a hands free Bluetooth speaker with some bells and whistles. I suppose the price is reflective of the quality of the microphone etc making sure it’s absolutely focussed on capturing what it needs to (your voice), and reducing what it doesn’t (background noise etc).
