    For its size and price, it is difficult to imagine anything sounding better. I was, frankly, a bit disappointed by the small physical size of this when it arrived, as I had never seen it in person until I opened the box. I assumed there would be no way this could possibly produce room filling sound with a satisfyingly full low end.It really outperforms its physical dimensions, offering very good sound reproduction right up to full volume. Full range music with a decent amount of bass results in this small brick moving a seemingly impossible amount of air from its rear-facing passive radiators.I would have expected the splash-proof design to come with sonic tradeoffs, but it doesn't. That makes this ideal for listening to music outdoors by the pool.While I would still be open to something physically larger, louder, and with more bass--understanding that I would be trading off portability, convenient (since most larger products require 8 D batteries, and price)--this is a sonic marvel for its size and price point. It is that much more of a sleeper product, given that I have never thought of owning anything with a TDK brand since pre-compact disc days of audio cassettes.The audio quality and volume is such that it would make a very convenient way to add audio to presentations made on the go.I have not yet tested the microphone that works for speakerphone or audio conference use, so no comment on that.

    this is probably the best bang for your buck period. it rivals all the highest quality speakers on the market. the only other one i liked was the sony btx300. however the bluetooth would get clicking sounds and static after 5 mins on my Macbook pro retina. This wasnt from WIFI interference either. turing off wifi did nothing. perhaps i got a bad unit but i have read of others having this issue also. which is too bad...its a fantastic deal otherwise

    Excellent speaker for the price. Connects easily by Bluetooth to my iPhone 4S. Useful in the steamy bathroom, travelling in the car, outside for picnics. Very rugged and solid - seems very well built. Battery seems to last 5-6 hrs when played at half-volume, which is usually loud enough to fill a room. I'd definitely recommend for the price.

          After researching and reading other reviews I decided on this unit. fairly priced and weatherproof for outdoor play. Unit sounds great. Nice booming sound. Battery seems to be lasting in 5-6 hrs of use range. connectivity is easy. Happy with purchase and product.
          Only cons would be no handle to carry and when cranked at full volume audio is slightly distorted. But never need it that loud as unit has enough power already.

          Comments about TDK A33 Wireless Weatherproof Speaker:

          I broke a bigger, more expensive speaker system in the stockroom that I work in, by dropping it. I move it quite a bit, so it has to be easy to grab. I like good sound, so it has to be good quality.

          This little speaker seems to be just what I need: small, easy to handle, and very good quality audio. It's bluetooth, so my iPod just locates it and it sings. If I need to charge my iPod, I use the USB that comes with it.

          Because it's good equipment, the manual recommends a surge protector. One more thing to schlepp around. But I think it will work out just fine.

          Also, it's so small it fits easily into a shelf or other small perch. I don't need splash proof... well, I do put my coffee down too.

            Comments about TDK A33 Wireless Weatherproof Speaker:

            I took a chance on a brand I'm familiar with but not known to be a leader in portable speaker systems. I own an SL that I love, but my son keeps using it so I needed another portable and I didn't want spend $300 again. The A33 was in my price range and had good reviews on B&H so I ordered it. I like the size and weight. It's hefty for a portable. The construction quality is excellent, also. Connection to my iPhone was easy and fast. Sound quality is great. Nice range of highs and lows. I think it produces highs better than SL which is bass heavy. Biggest challenge is keeping my son from using the A33 which is our favorite speaker now. Definitely recommend.

                  Comments about TDK A33 Wireless Weatherproof Speaker:

                  Most of the offerings at the local electronics store didn't sound great & most got poor reviews. After searching B&H.com and sorting by ratings I came across this TDK A33. Since it got rave reviews I decided to buy it. Rarely do you buy a product and receive more than I expected, but I did here. This unit has exceptional sound across all frequencies, especially the low-end. It weighs 2.6 lbs which probably is due to the quality of the speakers. I use this with my iMac, iPad, iPhone, & macbook pro and it works flawlessly. The built in speaker phone works great. The unit is solid, the buttons have a rubberized cover over them and are well laid out. The batteries are user replaceable, but last about 6 hours per charge & supposedly recharges 1000 times. The bottom line is the sound which is incredible. Unfortunately, you aren't likely to find this in a store to hear it before buying, but I'm so glad that I went to B&H and got this instead of settling for the usual, inferior offerings at the local store.

                    Reading its great reviews, I decided to give it a try. I've had it for about 2 weeks now and am extremely pleased with the sound. Great bass and loud at full volume (felt like it filled at least 2 adjoining rooms)! Hard to beat for the price even with the sale price I got it for. I felt it's definitely on par or better than comparable sized name brand speakers.

                    Can't comment much about the battery charge just yet since I haven't really used it unplugged often....but I think I noticed it last close to 4 hrs at normal listening volume.

                    On the whole, definitely a superb portable speaker!!

                    Was on sale and the reviews were good so I thought I would try it. Turns out it was a great buy. A little thump to it, actually sounds pretty good, not like a can. Was working in garage and it sounded great out there. No problems with Bluetooth as of yet. Would recommend it.

                        If you are looking for a simple bluetooth speaker with decent bass and not a lot of fuss, this is the one. Built in recharging battery lets you just unplug and go whenever and wherever. Easy pairing. Totally comfortable giving this to non-techie types.

                          Got the JBL Pulse as my son's present for Christmas but when it came to reward myself, I chose the TDK A33. One of the best wireless portable speaker system if not the best. [*] quality, sound... can't beat that.This puppy is going to follow me everywhere: on the patio for barbecue party, in the kitchen, at the pool,... at work.One feature I really like about it, it's waterproof so if I'm outside and it starts pouring, no problem I take care of everything which need immediate attention before I think about it or it can sit on the pool side with no worries...Love it!

                            Did some research to locate the best wireless bluetooth speaker for a Christmas paddle on the bayou and the TDK A33 came up time and time again with rave reviews.I purchased and was not disappointed. I have used it at a Christmas party and during the paddle. The sound is fantastic, with nice bass coming through. It was quite loud on the water, so much so, that I had to turn it down so I could hear others speaking.

                              I got this so I could hear teleconferences on my laptop, which has less than optimal speakers. Wow! I am very impressed with the sound quality - far better than I expected. The quality is so good, I will be listening to music and movies as well.
                              My son, who is a gear-head, is smitten. I am getting a steady stream of hints that this would be the perfect Christmas gift......

                              I ordered two of these. One stopped working, I think because you have to fully charge it first. The instructions do not say this. The one I fully charged before using works fine. It sounds way better than anything anywhere near it's class. I listened to a lot of them. Would have given it 5 stars if charging had been in instructions. B&H took it back and refunded money no Problem.

                                I bought this to listen to a teleconferences on my laptop (which has crummy speakers), and found it to be good enough to listen to music and movies, too. Wow! What a great sound from such a small speaker.

                                    I've only used this speaker a short while but I think it's a great little accessory. To me, the sound is very good for such a small package. And it's water resistant which is great for the boat :-) Charge seems to last a long time. My longest use so far was only 5 hours but it did that with no problems.

                                    The only con to me is that it's a bit heavy. It's not something you want to lug around in a backpack if you are hiking or anything. But it's a great portable solution for other scenarios.
