I like this speaker mostly for it's durability. However, after some regular use I've found the longevity of the tech to be not great. Lately the device has dropped connection alot with both my laptop and phone, and the battery life has been sub-par. I have put a fair amount of hours on the device, but it was a bit short lived. I can still recommend it, as for the price it's a pretty good. I mostly use this thing for podcasts and radio, and for that it is excellent. However, I find the sound quality is just OK (maybe a natural sacrifice for the weather sealing), and don't listen to music with it often. It's a great beach device, does excellent near water and you never have to worry about it, also great on the boat or canal! The bluetooth is pretty good, although like mentioned earlier I have been having connectivity issues. My iPhone stays connected but it fights with my macbook. This is usually fixed by a quick reboot, but still. Love the included strap! Overall pretty happy, especially since it was gifted to me. Hopefully they can improve the battery longevity in future versions!

We appreciate the detailed pros and cons in this review. Low battery can cause audio distortion and sometimes if you forget the iBT371 from the iPhone, restart the iPhone and re-connect the Bluetooth connection is better. This is a great durable unit. We appreciate your input.
