...but you get what you pay for. Super competitive pricing on this little guy. One color (out of stock right now) is under $30. Try and beat that! Points for the price, for sure, and I would recommend this to any non-audiophiles on a budget.
Now, for the bad news. "Incredible sound quality" it ain't. It cranks tunes through a single, small speaker and it sounds exactly like that. Yes, it does get loud -- like, loud enough to fill a large room and have an impromptu dance party -- but, for me at least, with loudness came unbearable break up of sound quality. The problem is two-fold: first, the speaker's just not up to high volume without distortion; second, the unit itself is built, well, cheaply, so there's hefty vibration internally when this thing gets pumpin'. At lower volume levels, however, I was pleasantly (mildly) surprised at the quality of the sound and could see using this for lower-level listening for extended periods.
Other considerations. The bottom has a sticky rubber pad on it that's nothing fancy but which does keep it from moving. Like, even on a car dashboard. Pairing was super easy and fast, though the thing does make an annoying beep every time it pairs with a device. Oh yeah, and every time you switch it on, it makes an annoying sound (reminiscent of a cell phone ringtone gone horribly wrong) very loudly, regardless of volume setting. Volume buttons are just that: buttons. Would've liked to see a slidey-thingey (technical term) for easier volume adjustment. Range of 30 feet is just about spot on.
