I've been writing to Santa since I was a little boy, wishing, praying, he would send me some Uranium Ore. I was disappointed year after year, when ripping my presents open, I never got any Ore. Enriched cake? Check... Plutonium? Check... Other fissile material? You bet.. but never any Ore :( Well my frown was turned upside down when I found out Amazon could ship me some Ore. Now I can continue my quest to become the true 'Radioactive Man'
I listened to a variety of music (EDM, Classical, Hip Hop, Country, Crap Rap, Jazz, Metal, Bluegrass) to test out the range and I'm pretty shocked. Jazz and You are immersed in the music with the strings of the cello or fiddle to the cymbals and most surprising of all the heavy bass in hip hop and EDM. The bass seems overplayed at times similar to Beats headphones, but not as exaggerated and doesn't muffle vocals whatsoever. Bluegrass and Jazz are extremely enjoyable to hear that clear double bass in conjunction with horns and fiddle/violin. Everything is sharp at high volume levels as well although I haven't tested at 100% because it is too loud at 70%.
I checked out the plethora of BT MOBILE models at Best Buy and none compare to the range that this speaker has (not the Magnolia lines like DefTech or Libratone. If that was even an option for you...why are you here?). The Bose Soundlink is great in the mids and highs, but low frequencies are only good compared to the A33. It goes without saying to buy the best within your budget. I've found mobile speakers sub-$300 can't beat this value and coughing up the extra $50 from the $100 range pays itself in sound quality. Weatherproofing, IP64 - not submersible, is definitely an added bonus. Not to forget the usb charging and conference call options that many BT speakers lack. The cons I have at the moment are the extra weight (opposed to the UE Boom or Beats Pill bleh!) and lack of full waterproof protection; a trade-off I gladly took for my use. If you require the full IPx8 protection, the EcoXBT offers that for the lower quality sound. Females carrying this in their purse will definitely know it's there. Fortunately, this is greatly paid off when in use as everyone will know where it is, even over conversations (varies by test woman). I will be testing this soon in a workshop environment to check how well it masks tool/machinery noise. Battery life is very important for mobility, so that's something I'm testing now too.
UPDATE: This monkey is LOUD! I didn't have it on full volume because it was deafening. It masked most of the workshop noise (you could still hear them enough for the safety-minded readers out there) and that wasn't on full volume. I was pairing it with a Lumia 920, so if your device is no good, maybe it's your source. If that's not it, call up their customer support. They are very great and helpful (I had a connectivity issue which a full discharge/recharge cleaned up). As far as battery life, it's around 7 hours on 40-50% volume. Less time the louder it is and vice versa. The weight is really a non-issue. I know it's in my backpack by weight not bulk and it helps remind me if I left it behind. One downside I discovered is the need to flip the waterproof seal on the ports to charge. I have to assume their reasoning is if you're using an AC plug that close to a water source, you won't have many years ahead of you. My best use so far is using it in the bathroom while in the shower and not having to expose my phone to the humidity and sink splash (replaced a set of speakers in there using a Belkin BT receiver).
Was one of the best books I ever read. Made me respect Billy as an artist, actor, funnyman but mostly family man. Many times I laughed out loud. I wish this man was a part of my life. May God bless you Billy and I hope you keep fooling us for a long time. Get this book people. You will not regret it!
