Comments about PORTABLE BALLOON SPEAKER:

I was a little trepidatious about this device but once I got it in the mail I couldn't believe how nice and easy it is to use. The sound quality is great and it goes decently loud.

Service and delivery comments:

I couldn't believe how fast this shipped. I expected it in a couple weeks but received it in day's.

      Comments about PORTABLE BALLOON SPEAKER:

      The output on this speaker is less than my Iphone/Ipad/Ipod and the phone speaker has to be turned to full volume to get any sound on the external speaker. Was a waste of money.

            I purchased this speaker so I could listen to music at work. It's cute, small and works well. My only regret is that the charge only lasts 5 hours.

                  Gave it to my brother for his b-day and within a week his wife had it by the pool. The kids love it and it is unbreakable, recharges from the computer and you can carry the whole kit and kaboodle in your shirt pocket

                  I use it in the car with my iPod since my car stereo broke. Not the best sound quality, but it will do until I can get a new stereo system.

                  This is an awesome little speaker. It works great with my daughter's ipod shuffle..and anyone who owns one of the shuffles knows it is hard to find accessories because it is the simplest ipod. Almost everything out there is for the more advanced versions and is more stereo-like. My daughter loves this and now I want one too! It projects the sound very nicely and I love how portable it is.

                    Super cute, and puts out good sound. I use it around the house, and when the weather is nicer, I plan to take it with me on walks (I don't feel safe walking with earphones in) and working in the garden.

                    Very quick delivery!

                          I bought this product for my wife's birthday so she could play bird songs from her nano iPod - which has a bird app. But the balloon speaker did not work. It was very disappointing. We are in the process of returning it.

                            Practical and fun all in one. I've always wanted to share the music on my shuffle and now I can. Works great. Instructions say to unplug when not in use as the battery will wear out; they are right. Simply unplugging from the ball keep it charged for a lot longer.
