Just looking at the box I was quite impressed, with just how small it is, but when I took out the speaker I was even more impressed by it's design. The top is silicone with buttons for calling fast forwarding, rewinding and pausing. I love that the speaker isn't one of those nasty fabric things but instead is thick metal mesh with a diamond pattern. Of course what's more important is the usability and sound quality so let me get to that.
All I had to do was plug my phone into the jack, or turn on bluetooth, start playing music and I was ready to go. The sound quality was fantastic, and a whole lot louder than I expected. Carrying speaker around was no problem because it's so light, and I couldn't recommend it more highly. Especially since it's only $30 on Amazon.
