I bring this with me nearly everywhere I go to turn up the volume from my iPhone, my MacBook, or my Tascam GB-10 trainer. It may not project as accurate as a studio monitor, but it has the full range you need to appreciate the bass and treble coming from a tiny package. Despite the full range of volume you get, it's portable and simple to use! Experiment with placement, such as placing it in the corner of a room or a few inches from a wall, and you get sound bigger than this portable speaker is.
2 things to improve on: 1) Consider that the charging plug should be a right angle plug, so the cable comes off the back not perpendicular to the surface such that it doesn't cause stress to the plug if it falls over. It doesn't usually fall over because it has a solid feeling weight, but this suggestion can add a few more years to the life of the speaker if there's less of a chance of stressing the charging socket and plug. 2) The available charging cradle should be included like a cradle is included in the SoundLink Mini package.
Overall simply an amazing portable package. Great purchase that I recommend!
