5 different colors to go with any room or set-up (Black, Blue, Red, White, Mint)

Surprisingly crisp and full-ranged sound.

Connects to phones, tablets, anything else that's Bluetooth enabled.


8 hours might seem like a lot but it's a rather limited battery charge.

Difficult battery change procedure.
