Yeah, I took another look at both and you're right.
On second thought, especially for the price..... I think I prefer the Flare. I guess I was going more with the size.
Personally, I prefer the vertical speakers like the Flare. As mentioned before, this is the first time that I actually did a double take on speakers. I usually prefer to use earbuds but just love the look of the Flare. And the fact that it's waterproof is a real plus too. Just the design itself has me seriously considering a speaker.
