I originally bought this speaker to use in live performances where I had to play pre-recorded beats on my laptop. After buying it, however, I also started using it just to sit back and listen to music. Its sound quality isn't perfect, but I love its rich bass and clarity across all frequencies. As it is often used for live sound, this speaker can get loud...like, dangerously loud. Anyone who wants a speaker that can handle massive volumes in a live sound setting while also being suitable for regular listening will love this.
