What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Bose SoundTouch 10 Wireless Speaker
  • The small size, booming sound and ease of use.
  • Powerful for its nice size.
  • Good size for small/medium rooms.
  • Decent sound for the price and compact size.
  • Use in my bedroom. Like the size and sound.
JBL Xtreme 2 Wireless Bluetooth Speaker
  • It's great that the strap comes with the kit because it would be hard to carry the speaker in your hands.
  • Although it is a rather heavy Bluetooth speaker weighing 5.27 ibs, it is convenient to carry thanks to a practical strap.
  • Just what I wanted to get. I am very pleased with this purchase because it is comfortable and can be hung on the shoulder, which will simplify its transportation.
  • Every day you can’t carry this speaker with you because it resembles a bag and takes up a lot of space.
  • When I saw her live I was surprised by her impressive size and i return her back because I did not need such a large one.

What customers say about "Features"
Bose SoundTouch 10 Wireless Speaker
  • For this to work, you do have to download the Bose SoundTouch App. Good app, comfortable.
  • I have tried 3 ways (phone, remote, and on the speaker). I paused the music on the remote, and started it again on the phone.
  • The on-device interface and remote control are simple: power, source presets and volume buttons.
  • The setup was very easy. I love the control of the entire system right from my phone.
  • SoundTouch app can't control the speakers!
JBL Xtreme 2 Wireless Bluetooth Speaker
  • It's fully waterproof, can charge devices from a built-in USB-out port (you supply the cable), has a built-in microphone for speakerphone calls.
  • The speaker can be immersed in water to a depth of 1 meter for a maximum of 30 minutes - ideal for parties by the pool or on the beach.
  • This is an extremely rugged model with a waterproof case and long battery life.
  • For all the time of use, I have not yet encountered with problem connecting to the speaker. It always runs smoothly and quickly.
  • I am faced with the problem that the buttons are not always pressed well, you have to make an effort to make speaker louder or turn on/off it.

What customers say about "Interfaces"
Bose SoundTouch 10 Wireless Speaker
  • I tried connecting it to my smartphone via the AUX input. Works well.
  • Bose has done pretty well with these speakers. Good connectivity via AUX.
  • Durable AUX port. Bluetooth works fine. I like it.
  • If no audio input for 20 mins, it turns off.
  • Auxiliary input started making a horrible static noise.
JBL Xtreme 2 Wireless Bluetooth Speaker
  • Two USB connectors are hidden under a tight fastener for charging two gadgets at once, a network connector, AUX and microUSB for updating the software.
  • Velvet rubberized plastic is used, I also really like fabric with special processing. It looks great.
  • JBL Xtreme successfully continues the balanced line of portable speakers of the brand: now “own” speaker for large companies has appeared in the assortment.
  • The sound is constantly being muted fort shorts period of time when using the aux cable on a low volume , this is very irritating as you always notice it.
  • When I took the speaker from the seller, I noticed that the USB port was broken and the cable in it just staggered.
