I love everything about this speaker except for one thing: it makes an annoying buzzing noise when it isn't receiving a Bluetooth signal. It plugged in and connected easily to my iPad. I played music through the speaker, and it sounded great for it's size. (Not much bass, but that's to be expected from such a small speaker.) However, it makes a terrible buzzing noise as soon as I disconnect the iPad. This would be tolerable if the noise went away when I turned the speaker off. It doesn't! In fact, if gets louder when I push the power button. The only way to get rid of the noise is to unplug the speaker. This completely defeats the purpose of this otherwise great speaker. Perhaps, my speaker is defective. Perhaps, not. If it didn't buzz, I would get others for around the house. As it stands, I won't take the risk on another one. It's really too bad, being as the speaker is a great design, especially for kitchen backsplashes.
The transmission distance is only ten feet or so. Useless! Sound is okay but must be close to source which defeats being wireless.
They're a great size and easy to plug in. The downsides are that if your device is more than about 15-20 feet away, the bluetooth signal drops in and out. Also, unfortunately, I was hoping to be able to have multiple speakers link to one device (for surround sound) but that didn't happen. Not that the product explicitly said it would but it didn't say it wouldn't either. The static factor is pretty bad if you turn the volume up very loud.
