I had a few different wireless outdoor speakers in the past. They were not too bad, but I have replaced them mostly because there was interference with radio and noise sometimes. This one has a much better and richer sound. Wireless connection is reliable and has zero interference. The speaker design is not so high-tech, but it is OK for my backyard.

Works well, range is understandably good, no complaints. There needs to be more hookups in the back of the sender in my opinion. I had to do some nice monkeying to get it to work seamlessly. Wished it had a recharger instead of just dc, or in addition to

I like it - only issue is that the Bass Boost does not make much of a difference.

Great deal for the money but no match for some better-quality models March 3 2012
By Bob Fellacher - Published on Amazon.com
I bought this speaker from Walmart for streaming Pandora from my laptop outside to my terrace. I was attracted to this speaker because I didn't want to spend a lot of money and these are really cheap (only $70). Also, I found a lot of positive reviews on Amazon.

After trying them out I think that the sound quality was OK if you don't have huge expectations. You really cannot expect this one to beat a $200 speaker. Note: This month my wife and I decided that we wanted a bit higher quality sound and purchased a set of iFinity Wireless Indoor/Outdoor Speaker - Black which until now we are very happy with.

PROS:
- Inexpensive: I got this speaker for $70.00

- Very simple to set up

- Sound quality OK: This speaker seriously lacks in bass but the sound quality is probably OK for many people especially if you are streaming from a low-quality source such as an FM radio.

CONS:
- Not very loud: The specs state 5 Watts power. If you have some car noise or your kids running around then the background noise may drown out the sound from this speaker. You can get it to be a bit louder when you plug them into an outlet.

- Transmission very susceptible to interference: I often get crackling and popping from the speaker. I have been unable to pinpoint what is intefering with this speaker. I do not have any 900 MHz gadgets around.

- Low battery life: When using rechargeable batteries, I can use this speaker for around 1 hour per charge at medium volume. This time is too short for having an outdoor party. You can get a longer battery life if you use alkaline batteries but then you end up spending serious money on batteries.

- Only Mono Sound: This speaker only plays in mono.

Conclusion:
If you are looking for an entry-level wireless speaker then this one may be the one for you. It offers low cost and simple setup but is no match in terms of sound quality and range for some better-quality wireless outdoor speakers.

Broke after a few days :( Aug. 31 2010
By Matthew C. Gilbert - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
You've seen at least one other 1 star reviewer who have had the same problem as we did. We used it for a few days and loved it. Then turned it on and it sounded horrible. Tried everything to get it back to normal but nothing worked. Will be calling the manufacturer next.

Lasted one day July 27 2010
By mongotz - Published on Amazon.com

Opened up and installed. I wanted the old AW-811 by the same manufacturer. Have had it for three or four years and it works fine. This one became tinney and unbearable to listen to in one day. Didn't overload, abuse or use in bad weather. It even feels cheap. Save your money.....

Buy something else. May 20 2012
By Darkjet - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Sort of works at times. You constantly have to fiddle with it. I use it for my balcony - all that separates the receiver and transmitter is a piece of glass. If I move the speaker more than ten inches from the transmitter it stops working. Anytime your music stops playing - if you haven't shut the speaker off , it emits shrill static. When it is working - the sound is acceptable. I would not recommend it though.

Very disappointing - guess you get what you pay for. May 9 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com

I really wanted to love these speakers. I ordered two and quickly configured them for stereo. The painless configuration was the only good point.

The design looks nice in the pictures, but is sadly very plasticy. Oh well, I was just planning on hanging them not gazing at them in extended admiration.

The battery life was terrible. A few hours of listening and they were dead. Mounting them with power seems possible, but with a short cable and a typical ugly L shaped wall wart I find it hard to imagine as a solution for most people.

However the real problem was the sound quality. Overall the sound was muted and lacking clarity or punch. Periodically we'd suffer through a random short burst of static no matter which channel we tried. This was just unacceptable.

I was looking for an easy way to get decent sound outside. This was not it.
