I've got a couple of bluetooth speakers ( a couple from Anker and one from another company ), but none of them look or sound like this one.
I have one which looks like it should be surround sound, but clearly the internal speaker is mostly projecting sound in one direction .. and my other "brick like" one ... only goes in one direction too.
This speaker definitely projects the sound all the way round ... I've placed it in the middle of a room and tested it ( via ears only ! ) to see if this is the case.
The bass is very rich ( and you can press the boost button if required ) ....easily the nicest sounding speaker I have.
The outside has a cloth covering which looks really good and much neater than my plastic/rubber/metal speakers, and the lights which flash in time with the music are fun ( you can turn these off if you want to the avoid the disco look ! )
The claim to be water proof and able to survive falling into a pool .... I don't have a pool and don't really want to risk putting them in the bath !!
All in all .. a really nice speaker ..
