Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressed Bought this as a Christmas gift for my daughter and have to say I'm very impressed with not only the light show which very bright and fills the room, but with the good sound this little thing gives off. The bass is really noticeable. Bluetooth connectivity and being rechargeable is a huge plus. Seriously considering buying one for myself. Lol

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small Gadget Big Specs A small device that punches way above its weight, a great gift for kids who are budding DJs. For its size : Superb Sound and a Light Display that Astounds. I bought one for my disabled son who is visually impaired and he gets good stimulation from the light display, he loves it. Thanks Maplin.

Connects easily and easy to use you can turn off the lights if you just want a speaker I cannot comment on battery life as I've only just started using it but overall it's quite a fun little gadget.

How loud is the speaker in decibels 

Asked by: Tombomb32
If you are looking for a real world figure of how loud the speaker is, we recently used this in a medium sized family room for a party, the speaker produced an adequate level of sound without being too loud.
