Great, little shower speaker! It has a strongly accented voice that says "The Bluetooth speaker is ready to pair" every time it starts up, and I actually had trouble understanding what it was saying because of the accent! It's easy enough to figure out though. The range is good, and the sound quality is fine. The battery life is decent, too! Great value for the price. Hold down the skip left or right buttons to turn the volume up or down; the instructions do not say this.
