  1. Jim W

    Three speakers, three different approachesI bought three Bluetooth speakers hoping ONE would be usable. All three ended up being keepers for different reasons. I bought the Cambridge SoundWorks Oontz Angle 3, the Anker Classic Portable, and the Boombotix REX.Portability: All three are fantastic, no real difference. If you want to nitpick, the Boombotix is the smallest, the Anker is next, and the Cambridge is the largest. But again, none of them are really different. I give an edge to the Boombotix for it’s clip, it’s more flexible. The clip is super hard to get open though. You aren’t clipping it to anything thick.Construction and Ergonomics: All three seem durable and well built. The Anker is clearly the best of the three. It’s classy, attractive, and feels substantial. And it doesn’t walk itself around too much with vibration. But the On/Off switch is terrible. It’s tiny and hard to use, you have to use your fingernail. The other buttons are functional, but not as easy to use as the other two. The Boombotix is sturdy and easy to use, the buttons are a little close together, but they work well. It’s walks around a little on a hard table, but not terribly. You will have to watch it though, or it will eventually fall off a table. The Cambridge Angle 3 is sturdy and I love the shape. It works really well being able to either lay it down or stand it up. The function buttons are easy to use. The On/Off button is not great, it’s too small and in an obscure location. So much so that they have to put a little sticker pointing to it. The rubber end caps are a mixed blessing. I think they will help protect it, but they get really dirty really fast. They pick up every tiny little bit of dust. I recommend standing it up if you put a lot of volume through it because once the bass starts to thump it will bounce and wiggle it’s way all over the place. It’s actually kinda funny looking. But standing up the passive radiator on the bottom doesn’t propel it all over.Sound: I was actually impressed with all three. None of them are on par with the large Sound Dock or Klipsch type speakers, but they could hardly be expected to compete with those at this size and price.The Cambridge is my favorite because it has more bass than the other two. It’s a clear winner in bass response. probably about 10-15% more. And that’s important to me. The Anker actually has the best overall sound. It’s rich and clean. It’s probably the “best” speaker of all three. And the Boombotix is clearly the loudest. It really puts out some sound. none of them sound bad at all. I would have been happy with any of the three if I hadn’t heard the others. But hearing them side by side the Angle 3 fits what I need best.Connectivity: None were bad, but the Boombotix lost connection first, the Angle 3 and the Anker had no trouble at all at 30ft even through walls (but none liked going through a stone fireplace LOL). None were an issue connecting. They were all easy as pie to pair. The Anker was slowest when powering on and trying to find my phone, but we’re talking about less than 10 seconds total time for the slowest.Intangibles: The Boombotix has some features that are really appealing. There’s an audio out jack, which you can use to run a second speaker (of any make). So that give you options. Send Bluetooth to the speaker and then it will send it to a second speaker. If you don’t have a Bluetooth connection on one of your larger speakers you can send signal to the REX and it will connect to your larger speaker. Options are nice.I chose the Angle 3, it fits my needs best with the best imitation of bass, but the others are good enough that I’ve decided to keep them and use them too. The Anker is nicest, and the Boombotix is loudest and most versatile. I can’t really speak to longevity since I haven’t had them very long, but I don’t think any of them will die on me. Don’t be afraid to buy any of these. Just pick the one that fits best.

    The Golden Age of Aux Speakers?I’m giving this 5 stars not because it’s perfect, but in comparison to comparable products and prices. This review is for people looking to carry a speaker around. It is not ideal as a sound bar or semi-permanent desktop audio system because larger, more expensive, less-portable products will do better there.Sorry to gush a little, but this will probably be helpful for people doing in-depth research like I did. The downside of this review is it’s my first BlueTooth speaker. But I’ve been searching for the perfect self-powered auxiliary speaker for decades. I still have the old Radio Shack RCA 4x C powered speakers some will remember from the ’80s. Those were surprisingly good: an MP3 speaker before MP3s existed, but the Achilles heel was the 4 C cells (and the high self-draining auto-off w/no hard switch), or I’d probably still be using them. The size of those RCA’s was also comparable to a lot of brick-shaped modern Bluetooth speakers, which I think is too big for ultraportable use. I think the Angle3 is the best compromise out there right now for people who want to carry the speaker with them from room to room, but something quality enough for marathon listening of shows and books.PROS- DEDICATED VOLUME BUTTONS(most BT speakers have annoying dual-use buttons where you have to press-and-hold the button to get to the volume–or no volume control at all. Having really quick volume control and still have pause/mute is really handy. You lose bluetooth track skip, but it’ so worth it to me. Good choice design choice IMO, CSW!)- SHAPE(is there any other triangular shape out there? yet it really makes sense. rectangles/cubes/muffin shapes either project the sound straight up, or straight out. triangle design also stable and tip-resistant.)- 18650 BATTERY INSIDE(known capacity and output, more chance of good quality, easier to service, I like the way the designers were thinking. I haven’t seen the innards of an Angle3 but a reviewer of the Angle2 Plus posted internals)- OTHER SMART DESIGN TRAITS(real screws, mostly logical hardware layout, and did I say 18650 battery which makes the 10 watts possible & believable; most units 3-7 watts. thank you Cambridge SoundWorks, for not gluing those rubber bumpers on. nice)- PLAY/PAUSE BUTTON WORKS AS MUTE BUTTON IN AUX MODE(useful when listening to live or streaming broadcasts where you can’t fast-forward over commercials)CONS & NEUTRAL- Power button is too close to the connectors, and awkward to turn on. Hard to find with your fingers (or even eyes). Cambridge seems to be aware of this, so they put a decal of “POWER” with an arrow pointing to the button, tacitly admitting it’s hard to find. You don’t really have to worry about turning it off, so turning it on is not that big of a deal. Just more difficult if you have an aux cable attached. I think this is to make the soft switch hard to accidentally turn the unit on, and in that they succeeded. The original Angle had a real hard/mechanical power switch which is nice, but I am also enjoying the convenient 10-min(?) auto-off (and it’s nice that it doesn’t make a noise when it turns off, if you’re asleep). I wish I knew the soft-off power consumption. Considering the 18650 cannot be swapped from a battery hatch (I REALLY wish it were), I don’t want it to be dead when I go to grab it. An 18650 battery compartment would make soft-off power draw partly moot as I could remove the battery for storage.- So not a con, but a Wish List for future version: I’d really love to see Cambridge migrate to an 18650 which is replaceable like a normal AA battery, so I could choose my own batteries, charge them externally, and replace them when they drain down. As a flashlight guy, I have a ton of quality 18650s lying around.. modern electronics are screaming out to have 18650 cells be the next AA. (Cambridge, make sure your battery compartment can fit protected cells, if you do this! Take a look at some of the cheap MiFine 18650-powered radios sold here. This needs to be a trend.)- After using it, I see that the triangular design and all-black color scheme makes it hard to figure out the orientation at a glance: which side fires the speakers? Which side has the controls? In Bluetooth mode, you can actually have it perfectly facing towards you, yet it’s still upside-down. That’s not a problem till you go to push a button. Which side is it on? Or your finger’s on the correct side, the buttons may not where your finger expects them. This makes a good case for one of the colored versions, but I devices like this to not catch the eye. I may use some fingernail paint or something to mark the top of the triangle, perhaps just on one side to also note which side has the buttons.- Nitpicking, but kind of a dirt magnet. If these are my biggest issues with it, I’m ecstatic. The rubber side covers could probably be removed and washed if desired.A NOTE ON SOUNDMost readers just want to know about “the sound”, but there’s much more to a bluetooth speaker, so I’ve chosen to focus more on those other things. I’ll get “the sound” part out of he way now. What I write may not be applicable for most, because I’m an audiophile, and most stuff sounds like crap to me, compared to the glowing reviews I read. I’m disappointed by a lot of speaker systems which most people go wild about. Then again, the setups I’ve settled with would be extreme for most people. I really think most Americans have substantial hearing damage. I know expectations and understanding limitations is important. In that light: the Angle3 (to me) did not quite live up to the reviewers’ claims for music, but it did live up to hopes in VOLUME, and for most hearing-damaged people, quality=quantity. I haven’t tested its upper limit with music, but with speech, yeah it can go louder than I need or even want. Cranking it outside, yeah you could get your neighbors’ attention. Quality-wise, it sound quite excellent for speech and occasional bumper music, which is mostly what I’ll use it for. But quality sound does not equal high volume, and if this is the best-sounding speaker system you have, I feel bad for you. But for many, this will be. The laws of physics put some limitations on a box this small, but considering that and Amazon’s price, it does a really admirable job. The passive bass radiator does actually do something, too. A comparison: to my memory, the sound is not quite as good as ‘portable’ Panasonic dual cassette-radio smaller boombox I used a lot in the 1990s, but that thing was much bigger comparatively. It also had dual 4-inch speakers, and was always AC-powered–not really portable, and if it was, took C cells, making it not really a fair comparison. So considering the limitations and cost of the Angle3, nearly matching that sound quality in something this size is exciting, because it’s SO DANG USEFUL. I’ve used it so much in the first week, it doesn’t look new anymore.CONSLUSIONThis little is I think the best compromise of size, shape, sound, and price. It’s big enough to give volume that won’t disappoint except for truly extreme needs (like the review by the UPS driver in a noisy truck going at highway speeds) or disproportionate expectations, but it’s small enough to take with you from room to room as it plays. I sit it on my chest in bed, or beside me; it’s great. Without having an opportunity to hear other current/popular BT speakers (and online video reviews with sound only get you so far), I still think I made the right decision. I’m loving the Angle3, and using it a lot. There are a ton of good choices at prices more affordable than ever, so making up my mind was a painful, lengthy decision, as if I’m going to buy several, I might as well buy one that’s several times the cost of this–so I wanted to only buy one, but make it a good choice. I would say the loudness is more impressive than the sound quality. And I didn’t buy it to blast anything, but the sound quality is quite nice in this size, and I’m sure there’s nothing in this SIZE and price range which would impress me more. If I needed more of a desktop-type speaker, I’d definitely go with a bigger one, like the Denon brand–but I wanted SMALL (I actually was originally shopping for smaller), with good sound, and loudness when I need it occasionally. I’ve found the form factor very convenient. I’m not jonesing for an upgrade. But if Cambridge managed to reduce the size a bit yet again, while still increasing sound quality and not compromising on volume, AND introduced a battery compartment for removable 18650 batteries? Yeah, I’d bite.I cut out a lot of writing for this review, for the smartphone generation. I’m thinking about posting a fuller review elsewhere for people who’r really into doing research. If requested, I can share more details. If you have questions, feel free to ask. If you’re handy and adventurous, open one up and help the community with some pics of guts, if I don’t get to it first. Frankly, aux speakers sucked until Bluetooth speakers hit the market, but lithium batteries is more the reason behind it, though economies of scale was the other. All my life I’ve scrounged for a decent aux-input speaker with no good answers–and suddenly, online stores are overflowing with an amazing variety of high-quality, low-cost options. The hardest part was settling on one! I don’t get it! Even in the past 5 years, the quality and options have gone up immensely, and seems to keep going. The Golden Age of aux speakers?

    [NEW] OontZ Angle3 :: Crystal Clear Sound, Nice Bass and Louder Volume! ::Let me preface this review by saying, I was provided a free sample for testing and review. I explained to the manufacturer that I would provide an honest review of this product. All experiences with this product and all opinions are solely my own.I purchased the prior generation of this speaker, the OontZ Angle Plus, so I’ll be able to compare them. The Plus has crystal clear sound and good bass. I really enjoyed the Plus, but where the Plus needed some improvement was with its volume and bass.The new OontZ Angle3 significantly increases the volume and bass, but more importantly it retains and improves upon the crisp and crystal clear sound of its predecessor, plus it adds an ingenious bass design. More on that later.What’s included in the package:1 – OontZ Angle3 Speaker1 – Micro USB Cable1 – 3.5mm Audio Cable1 – Quick Start GuideThe OontZ Angle3 is a great sounding Bluetooth speaker, in a small compact package. It weighs in at about 9 ounces. It is 5 1/4 inches long and about 2 1/2 inches high. It will basically fit in the palm of your hand. Please refer to the pictures I posted. It also retains the angular design of its predecessor, but now has a silicone rubber type finish on both ends of the speaker. It’s still void of any sharp edges. It’s a great looking speaker, with a unique design. I like this Angle3 design better than the Plus.It’s significantly louder than the Plus and has nice bass, for a unit that’s this small. If you enjoy music that has some bass, this unit should meet your needs and be truthful, the sound that comes out of this speaker is mind boggling to me and the size of this speaker belies that fact!The passive radiator, which produces the bass in the Angle3 and most Bluetooth speakers, is located on the bottom of the unit. If you place it bottom down, the bass effect is more pronounced. If you want a little less bass, you’ll stand it on end. When it’s bottom down, the bass has a nice little thump. I believe this was done by design and it’s an ingenious feature.Be careful where you place the speaker bottom down, because it does want to move when playing music with bass. The speaker has pads on the bottom, but they work better on very smooth and glass surfaces.You can hear that Cambridge Soundworks spent the majority of its time improving and refining the sound of the Angle3. That focus on improving acoustics shows up big time in this tiny, but crystal clear and loud speaker.There’s no distortion at max volume. The speaker has 10+ watts of peak power. It’s now loud enough to fill up your backyard party with clear, great sounding music. My wife heard me playing music upstairs and she was in the garage. It’s plenty loud!All my music testing was done using Spotify. Speaker was set to full volume and iOS volume was set two clicks from max, for most of my testing. I also tested both settings set to max.Bluetooth connectivity is super easy. It connects from one device to another effortlessly. I found you don’t have to press a button on the speaker to pair it with a different device. I like intuitive functions and this one fits the bill. It also has a speakerphone function. You can play and pause your tracks from the device as well.The OontZ Angle3 doesn’t have all the options others have. You don’t get NFC support, a micro SD card slot or the ability to skip tracks using the speaker controls. There are other Bluetooth speakers that have these options, but if you value how well your music sounds over a myriad of options, this beautiful sounding speaker is for you.The Angle3 has an IPX5 certification, which makes it splash proof and dust proof. Great for the shower and other wet environments. Don’t be afraid to shower with it or have it out in the rain. It can’t be submerged in water with this IPX rating.Battery life is about 7 hours, at 60% volume. It will be less at higher volumes. This is definitely less than the Plus unit, which does 12-15 hours of use. You have to take into account that the battery is driving much more sound and requires that extra battery power. I personally like the trade off and all that’s required is to charge the unit a bit more frequently. A battery status symbol shows up in my iOS devices.If you’re like me and aren’t interested in the all the above mentioned options, that you may never use and just want a beautiful sounding speaker that’s main focus is perfecting and delivering crystal clear sound, than this speaker is an excellent option to consider.To me, the OontZ Angle3 has no real negatives to mention. You could quibble about having more features, but I really don’t consider that a negative. I’d rather have a great sounding speaker, over more features. In my opinion, this is a great Bluetooth speaker for the price.The OontZ Angle3 is a very solid speaker, that now has outstanding volume and good bass. It retains and actually improves upon the crisp highs and strong mids of its predecessor. I like that Cambridge Soundworks is actually focusing on sound quality and not loading up on tons of features.I can highly recommend the OontZ Angle3.Thank you for reading my review.

    Locked, Cocked and Ready to Rock…In smaller spacesLike any product, this speaker has both good and less than good points. Having just received it, I am limited to immediate experience, although thus far more good than bad:Oontz Angle 3 Speaker (Geez, what a name!) appears well constructed, with good, solid feeling to it; although it isn’t at all heavy. It doesn’t have any apparition nor feeling of being loosely constructed, with good and tight fitting rubber seals and grommet for power/hard cable connection port. It was a bit difficult to get grommet open for charge the first time, but using some blunt tool removes it easy enough…Make sure you don’t use anything like a sharp knife or like edged tool, because the rubber grommet could be accidentally cut easily enough when trying to lift it out initially. That’s not a point for complaint, because speaker is supposed to be water proof enough to take in the shower, although user pamphlet expressively warns against full submersion. I as well like the fact the pamphlet is well written, easy to understand in explaining functions and set up, and I am thrilled by the fact it is completely in English; as opposed to multi language documents that are written in several languages at microdot font. It’s definitely a high point for me to see the instructions are completely in English, but higher still, designed and engineered in America! It is manufactured in China however (What isn’t these days?), and I would have preferred American manufacturing and paid more for it if it was.Bluetooth pairing with my iPhone 7 Plus was simple and easy, and activated the pairing mode was very easy, requiring only the user depress and hold the Bluetooth button, which is lit when in use, for a few seconds until it reacts by fast flash. After that, it’s just a matter of selecting it in iPhone settings menu, and it will continue to “look” for the speaker after powering on and off, or turning it on for other sessions. Although it hasn’t yet been a problem for me with Oontz speaker, it is sometimes important to reselect chosen device in iPhone if you want another device selection (such as Plantronics headset or other device); although that’s iPhone’s issue and not Oontz Angle 3 Speaker’s.So how does it sound? (Thought you’d never ask!): It’s a fairly good, responsive speaker with good resonating effects, deep base response, and good mid and high end response. Bear in mind this is a small, portable speaker running off an internal battery, so if you’re wanting several hundred watts to rival Bose speakers, this ain’t it! But it’s no slouch of a portable speaker either, and it would be absolutely perfect for bedside, hotel, bathroom-shower morning music and like use. It would be perfect for kids’ rooms, although no kid is truly happy unless he can annoy parents with high volume, preferably including the neighbors while at it, and this little speaker just isn’t made for window-shattering output.It gets a little tricky if your playlists are “eclectic from hell” like mine are! Neal Young and Rolling Stones comes out great using iPhone’s “Small Speakers” EQ setting, Temptations does better using “R&B” or “Pop,” and I have yet to isolate best for Grateful Dead…But “Rock” comes near (but not quite there) the mark. Junior Walker imposes a problem I have yet to solve…And who can live without? All in, you’ll likely find a good setting for one album or genre of music, but you would do well to expect to use more than one if you really like your music like I do. Still, that no buzz killer by me. I like it just as much! Again, if you want to share your music with residents two flights up or around the block, this won’t be your answer, but I have a 700 watt Yamaha receiver to accomplish that need anyway.Oontz Angle 3 speaker comes partially charged enough to pair and try right out of the box, although I soon connected it to supplied cable and to a USB charger I already had. Instructions say it can take “5-6 hours to fully charge a low battery,” but how “low” it is on delivery is anyone’s guess. Good news is you can listen while charging it, and it’s recommended to fully charge initially. I note user pamphlet states higher volume level will affect play time, but it says you’ll get “up to 12 hours at 2/3 volume.”Hands Free function for telephone user however, does present a weak point. Sound of incoming party is reasonably good and nothing to complain about, but the microphone on the Oontz Angle 3 does indeed leave much to be desired! I tried it in a reasonably quiet surrounding without background noise, a little less than two feet away in normal voice that I would use with other hands free telephone devices, using my own voicemail message to gauge sound quality. The result was very tinny, with a very distant reception that gives perception of being very far from the microphone when you’re not. Since I don’t expect to ever much rely on that function anyway, at most to grab a very important call while in the shower or like setting, that’s no deal breaker to me. If you expect to make a lot of hands free telephone use however, you should be aware of that and immediately test it to see if it’s something you can rely on. The upside is it automatically went into telephone mode and enabled the microphone without having to switch, and it immediately returned to playing music once call was terminated. Since cell phone issues can be sourced to any number of reasons (connection, device location, etc,), it isn’t always evident for where the problem cause is…So test that soon, once you get it!All in, end of the day, and bottom line: This is a great deal! I believe I am getting more than what I would expect for $25 Bluetooth-connected, small portable speaker, and it sounds really good in the entire room, and isn’t limited to being sweet-spot in front of it. The base comes most from the bottom of speaker and has easily discernible mid and high range outputs, which is hard to find on small speakers at all, let alone portable AND Bluetooth. It will easily be benefited in smaller space with tiled walls like most bathrooms tend to be, and neither it nor the manufacturers fear a hot shower, provided you don’t ask it to scrub your back. It would work very well in a kitchen, bedside or hotel room without causing the front desk to ask you for an much earlier check out…Like now or sooner. It has it’s limitations like anything else, but for reasonable volumes and user expectations, it’s still a score! There’s only one thing I would want that wasn’t part of the buying experience: Free shipping from Amazon (Hint, hint!!). I would buy another and I do recommend it! Thumbs up, stars, and a few backflips…And nobody is giving me anything for this review.

    Some realistic observationsBack about 2005-2010 when mini Bluetooth speakers used to be the new toy everyone wanted (and you paid the price to be an early adopter) I was really into the fad and couldn’t stop looking for the perfect one. As a result I ended up with more of them than most dealers, speakers of every possible shape and gimmick. Some of them were knock your socks off impressive, including some so small I could stuff them in my carry on when I traveled so I could have music in my hotel rooms.These days there are a handful left from the major brands. One of them I was curious about was this series from Cambridge SoundWorks, a company I’ve known and respected since I worked directly with their founder Henry Kloss back in the late 80’s and early 90’s. Unlike the early days of Bluetooth mini speakers this little speaker was only nineteen bucks, probably the lowest I’ve ever paid for any speaker. I had mixed expectations. But I chose it both for its size and its shape, I was looking for a small personal speaker to put on the base of my desktop monitor to be able to listen to content at low volume without using my high-end Boston Acoustics system.The small size is truly impressive as is the surprisingly nice look and feel of the speaker. It is heavier than similar no name speakers and you almost have to wonder how they can sell it for such a low price. It comes with a micro USB charging cable and also a mini audio cable. The power switch is easily reached near the top of the back of the speaker where the audio input and charging port are also located behind a rubber flap. The rest of the controls are on the right side of the wedge.The speaker will pair easily with newer Bluetooth devices but it seems it is not 100% compatible with all of the many standards. For example it would not pair with my desktop computer without downloading an updated Bluetooth driver.The most important thing you probably want to know is how does it sound. I’m sorry to say that with almost 20,000 review written already, many of them high energy endorsements, I’m not as impressed. I have definitely heard better from similar sized, and even smaller, speakers. It’s not bad, but it’s not knock your socks off impressive. And it’s definitely not a speaker that you would choose if there were more than one or two listeners or for use outdoors.There are a couple of things to be aware of that I liked – one is that if you use the audio cable the speaker won’t shut off automatically after a few minutes like many other brands do, but it will shut off after 15 minutes of non-playing when used in the Bluetooth mode. Interestingly, if you pair it with an Echo device the power stays on all the time in battery mode so you would probably want to keep it plugged in to a power source if that’s your plan.I also like that you only hear the pairing sound once the first time unlike many other brands that make a loud sound whenever they are powered on or when pairing is successful. For me that is a deal breaker.

    BEWARE IF YOU WANT TO PAIR 2 SPEAKERS!I had one that I had bought about a year ago and thought that I would buy another and pair them together for the pool area. What I didn’t know is that my speaker was a different “version” from the one that I just purchased. After unsuccessfully trying to pair the old one with the new one, I finally talked to the manufacturer and they said that the two had to be the same version. The version is not on the speaker itself, it is determined only by the logo and insignia placement on the bottom of the speaker. No way of finding it otherwise – either for the old speaker or the new speaker. No where in the description does it give the version number. This made the two speakers that I now owned totally useless for what I had intended. When I returned to purchase another one of the new speakers, it was no longer on sale, however, it did go back on sale within a few days (during the holidays) and I had to buy a third speaker to get them to do what I wanted the two to do, which was to pair in stereo mode with left and right channels. Fortunately the second new speaker was the same version as the first new speaker that I had purchased a few weeks later, BUT THERE WAS NO WAY OF KNOWING THE VERSION UNTIL I RECEIVED IT AND TRIED TO PAIR THEM!!!! COME ON OONTZ! Help us out here and give the version guide in the description! I now own three of these and one is useless for what I want to do.

    Hands down Best speaker for the priceI did my research before getting this and read many multi-page reviews comparing it to similar cost Anker and JBL speakers.I’m a college student and almost daily bring this speaker into the lounge and let any who wants to play music out of it.For $30, it is durable enough (I’ve dropped it a few times on carpeted floor), it has amazing Bluetooth connection: takes maybe 3-5 seconds and has at least 100 ft range, and has a great battery life of at least ten hours. It also claims to be minorly water-resistant, and while I haven’t dunked it or taken it into the shower, it can at least survive being dripped on by water. Also has great volume.The one minor downside is that it doesn’t have amazing bass, but neither would any other speakers at this price.Extra Details:Because of how my floor is laid out, with two long hallways meeting at the lounge to form an L shape, I actually had an issue with the Bluetooth being too strong for some time. Basically, the speaker would remember whichever device connected last and automatically reconnect soon as I turned it on, so for example it would connect to someone’s phone IN THEIR ROOM behind their closed door, fifty feet away. Then no one else could connect unless we turned it off and on again and were beat the last person to it.The easy solution: There’s a Bluetooth symbol on the end, press and hold to disconnect from a device.

    A GREAT (and CHEAP) replacement or alternative to a home stereo system! Way more bang for your buck!Wow! This thing packs one hell of a punch!I received a Bluetooth speaker for Christmas a couple months ago. Loved it. It’s nothing like a stereo, but it’s a nice little portable device to have in the kitchen while cooking or to have some background music while we’re all sitting at the dinner table. The sound was good, the volume got fairly loud. For a $25 gift exchange item, I was happy I ended up with it and up until that point, I never thought I had any need for a Bluetooth speakerWork is highly against using streaming music sites and has blocked most of them, and there’s no radio. And I’ve been the only employee in my office for the last 4 months. It’s lonely. No one to talk to. And quiet. Oh woe is me.Once and a while, I would bring in the Bluetooth speaker I’d gotten for Christmas, but I hated having to lug it back and forth so I could use it at home while I cooked or during dinner. It was time to get another.(It’s amazing how something you never knew you needed turns into the need of having more than one after you finally realize what you’re missing)So, the hunt began a few weeks ago for a decent Bluetooth speaker. I didn’t want to get another one like the one I had because I wanted to try out a different brand or model to compare.***What was I looking for?***Sound. That was it. I wanted something that could get loud (to replace my need for my stereo in most cases), something that could handle deep bass, and something that wouldn’t get distorted, static-y, or muddy no matter the volume or amount of bass. It didn’t have to be big, small, a certain color, a certain shape, didn’t have to take my calls, or be waterproof. Just needed to have a great sound. But I wanted something under $50, too.***What made me choose the OontZ Angle 3 Bluetooth speaker?***I went hunting the internet for “Best Bluetooth Speakers” for 2015 and 2016 and “Best Cheap Bluetooth Speakers” of 2015/2016. This one came up on several lists. I *almost* chose one other one, which was about $20 more (though I also had a $10 off coupon), but it was a newer product and I didn’t feel it had been around long enough to conclude whether it was a good long-lasting product or not. So I decided to take my chances with this one.***What did I receive?***Upon opening the box from Amazon, the Bluetooth speaker came in its own separate product box. Inside that box was the Bluetooth speaker, inside of a plastic sheathe. Also inside the box was a USB charging cable.***How did I feel about it after I tried it out?***Very impressed. The sound was clear; no rattling, static, or muddiness. The volume was very loud. I had company over, and it was a little difficult talking over the speaker.***How did it compare to the other Bluetooth speaker I’d gotten for Christmas?***Mind blowing. I thought I had a good, loud, clear, superior product that I’d gotten for Christmas. But I switched back and forth between both for about 15 minutes and was just amazed. The OontZ was about an inch shorter but put out a more powerful sound. The Oontz is rectangular vs the round one I had and the quality of sound was much more crisp and the bass was much deeper. Both Bluetooth speakers, at full volume, could be felt in the floor- the bass, that is. I had them sitting on my kitchen table, as I sat in a kitchen chair, and I could feel the bass in the floor with both, but it was much more noticeable with the OontZ. The OontZ can be used standing up or lying on its side, the other one I had could only be used standing up, since it was round. The other difference, and the biggest for me, is that the other Bluetooth speaker I got for Christmas is only selling for 9 cents less here on Amazon than this one is. Essentially, they’re the same price… but this one is way more bang for your buck!***What was the best part?***The entertainment it provided my children! When the OontZ was turned up to max volume and lying on its side, it seems to dance across the table. No, really… lol The vibration of the heavy bass WILL actually move the speaker around the table even though there are skid pads on the bottom. My 4 and 9 year olds thought this was HILARIOUS and insisted on showing their friends the dancing speaker when they came over! Needless to say, it’s best to keep it standing up instead of lying on its side if you’re going to have the volume maxed out with a heavy bass!***What’s the worst part?***The ends/top & bottom and skid pads collect ANY dust, dirt, fibers, hair, you name it… anything it can find that’s in the air or on your table you didn’t know was there. Aesthetically, that really sucks.WARNING: The title description says it’s “Waterproof.” However, in the product description, it states that it is “water resistant.” I just wanted to point out that inconsistency.Overall, this thing is FANTASTIC! This is a GREAT replacement or alternative to a home stereo system! (And cheap!)UPDATE 3/8/2016: I’ve now been using this speaker for a little over a week. I’ve had to charge it once so far, with daily use of an hour to 5 or 6 hours at a time. Not bad, really. There is a meter on my iPod which shows me the batter life, however when it’s charging, you can’t tell that it’s connected or charging. Nothing flashes, the battery meter doesn’t turn green, nothing. I wasn’t sure for a while that it was even charging after I’d plugged it in. Luckily, it did, but it did take quite some time to charge. I’d say a half hour or longer, though I didn’t time it.Please rate my review if you find this to be helpful information!

    What I found about intermittent poor quality soundI couldn’t understand why some days it sounded great and other days it sounded like a cheap transistor AM radio from the 70’s. When you first connect, it sometimes shows OontZ hands free and sometimes it shows OontZ stereo and sometimes it shows both as being turned on. You must go in every time and turn off hands free or it sounds terrible. When you turn on stereo only, it sounds great. I don’t understand why this shows up as two different speakers. Also, when first turned on, it’s at full volume. It scares the day light out of my cat!
