Matthew, Ashford

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Really easy to use. Sometimes using bluetooth can freeze but its not to do with the speakers its the phone! Make sure your software in your phone is the most up to date version, helps to prevents problems. It comes with a lead to plug in things like your MP3 player into the back of it so its pretty good.

And it can run on batteries - bonus and even got a carry case - another bonus!

Oli, London

Score 4.0/10
Good points:
Design looks great. Love the wireless concept. Sounds ok when using a wire.
Bad points:
Sounds like it is being dragged through mud when used wirelessly. Really awful sound quality. Connection dropped out intermittently. Connecting new devices was very hit-and-miss. Basically it was unusable as a wireless bluetooth device, only really worked as a wired one.
