However, I like studying outside at school. The speaker doesn't work on cement or wood benches, it doesn't work on grass or trees, the only flat surface I have is my laptop (which btw had harman/kardon speakers and sounds a lot crisper and better at the sacrifice of some bass). So I would like to narrow this review down to pros and cons:
Pros: On the right surface i.e. bathtub or guitar, the bass is great and the treble is mediocre. It's portable and solidly built, it dropped accidentally from a window 5 feet down and was fine cosmetically and functionally. It's fairly quick to charge about only 40 to 50 minutes for a 15-17 hours operating time. It's novel and fun to play with on different surfaces.
Cons: Definitely pricey when I got it. It's not even worth the $60-ish now. If I'd known the sound quality then I would have passed. The rubber surface has to be cleaned all the time for the best adhesion to any flat smooth surfaces. And flat, smooth, hollow surfaces are the only things that'll make it work. I forgot to mention that the surfaces has to be leveled or only slightly angled. Lastly the mid-tone isn't that great.
Conclusion: Unless you live in the bathroom or always carry an empty Tupperware container around like some reviewer said than by all means this speaker is worth it. But if you're like me and looking for a portable speaker that can go truly go anywhere than this is NOT the speaker!
I would recommend this to anyone who travels a lot and wants to escape headphones from time to time.
Very impressed with the mechanical coupling of the speaker into a mounting surface. I have a 1" thick desk (particle board covered in laminate), and the bass was quite good. I was not expecting 30 Hz, and did not get it... but the 100 Hz and lower was fine. Really amazing difference when the speaker was not coupled to the desk - lifting it off the desk and the bass essentially disappeared!
I am currently using this as a 2.1 system, using 2 of the X-Mini speakers as left and right, and the Wowee as subwoofer.
As for volume, I am running at about 20-50% on the level control in my computer, and have to drop the level to converse or talk on the phone. Plenty for my purposes, and much better low end. A lot of my show programming follows beats in the music, and now I can hear them (without using headphones).
Should be better for client previews as well...
The biggest draw-back I have experienced is that the Wowee will literally jump up and down if you try to listen to music with A LOT of bass (Dubstep music, for example). I emphasis A LOT of bass because this device can handle most mainstream music, but the jumping issue seems to occur when you put electronic music on at high volumes. To solve this, they sell a bracket-like device that secures the speaker to a surface using what are basically 3M Command Strips, which allow you to secure something to a surface and then pull a tab to release the seal and separate the items. Of course, once you've unsecured the bracket from whatever surface it was on you need more Command Strips to secure the Wowwee to a new surface. This can create a situation where you spend a lot of money on 3M Command Strips, but I find that you can avoid this problem by using a little strategy to plan what you will need the bracket for. For example, I spent a week camping on the North Shore of Oahu in Hawaii last summer. The minute we got to the campsite I attached the Wowee to the top of the cooler using the bracket and didn't remove it from there for the entire week. We had the cooler at the campsite and brought it to the beach with us, which meant we had good sound wherever we went. Whenever I needed to charge the Wowee I just slid it out of the bracket and plugged it in (this can be a little challenging but can definitely be accomplished... getting back in to the bracket can a challenge too). If you go through the hassle of using the bracket, you are rewarded with excellent sound quality even with music with a lot of bass. If you're not a fan of music with tons of bass you can probably skip the bracket (although the bracket does secure the device to a window which sounds awesome).
