    I bought this for my Sansa Clip Zip, mainly to listen to podcasts and audiobooks. It came with a nifty drawstring pouch spacious enough to carry the speaker, its accesories, *and* my Clip Zip and headphones.

    It was easy to set up and use. The printed instructions that came with it were adequate, but it used a photo of a white version of the speaker in a white background, which washed out details, and made it tough for my poor eyesight.

    For its compact size, the sound is impressive. IMO, It works best in small rooms with little to modearate noise. For instance, with my pedestal fan on, the hum of my PC, and moderate outside noise, I can listen to it loud and clear.

    However, when I tried to use it in a room that was close to the street, the louder outside noises made it hard to listen clearly to the audiobook I had on. The same thing happened when I tried to use it while driving my car, windows closed, AC on. And that was with my Clip Zip at full volume. Good enough to have music playing in the background that doesn't get in the way of conversation, but not good enough to listen to a podcast without straining your ears to understand the words.

    My pet peeves:

    (1) the rechargeable battery is not replaceable... but then again, that's an annoyance I have to learn to live with with most electronic toys these days.

    (2) It has a mini-USB port as its sole audio connection. I would have liked to also have the option of using a standard audio cable jack... but maybe that's because there was no room for it in the design. The speaker is tiny after all.

    (3) While recharging, the LED changes from blue to red. However, there is no way to know when it has reached full charge (apart from the approximate times given in the manual: 2.5 hrs from an AC/DC 5v charger, 4 hrs from a USB port). I would've preferred some visual clue, such as having the LED flashing on and off once it was fully charged, or have it change from red to blue again.

    (4) I'm probably being unfair here, seeing that the speaker is already very small and compact, but it would've been nice if it also had volume control to make it even louder.

    However, those peeves of mine are no deal breakers. For its size and price range, it's an amazing speaker.

    We use this speaker in the kitchen, connected to an Airport Express so that we can listen to iTunes remotely. For NPR in the morning, it's fine. For anything with any musical information, it's pretty terrible.

    The best thing about this, in this configuration, is that it charges off the USB port on the Airport Express, so that it doesn't require a 2nd outlet.

      Comments about Bass Expanding Rechargeable Mini Speaker (Black):

      We are showing more videos in our meetings. I tell our executives that their laptop speakers just won't cut it - and the best video is nothing without good audio that can actually be heard by everyone in the room.

      These speakers are ultra portable and easy to set up. And this price point means that I don't need to have a conniption if it gets left behind.

        I use this product with one of my paranormal investigation devices. It works great and fits in your hand what a bang for your buck. Just wish I'd purchased one with the SD/MMC/MS card input port.

          Bought for our kids for their iphones, because they kept taking a similar version of mine for a quick speaker when quickly watching video on their iphones with their friends. Really phenomenal little punch of sound for the price, and if you are demo-ing a quick video on the road, its really a no fuss simple set up. Only gave it 4 stars because I've not had any long term experience with them yet, but the alternatives are much more expensive and this is pretty darn good for the price.

                  This little guy has a surprisingly high sound quality for its size. However, I don't use it at terribly high volumes.I bought it for use on longe rbusiness trips. I have trips where I may be at the same hotel room for over a week, and I bought this for a better way to listen to my MP3 player tunes. This device packs up small. The way it closes protects it from damage.I haven't used it long enough to comment on battery life.

                            There is excellent sound in this mini speaker. It does not distort when played at it's loudest.

                              Ok sound quality, small & easy to use, can even carry it in your pocket. Just wondering how long the battery will last for.

                              It's very light and easy to cary around.
                              Great for notebooks and Mp3's as well.

                                  Great sound for what it is: an inexpensive, mini, portable speaker. Lightweight, easily tucks away in backpack, carry-on gear bag or luggage.

                                  We use this speaker in the kitchen, connected to an Airport Express so that we can listen to iTunes remotely. For NPR in the morning, it's fine. For anything with any musical information, it's pretty terrible.

                                  The best thing about this, in this configuration, is that it charges off the USB port on the Airport Express, so that it doesn't require a 2nd outlet.
