I received my speaker as a Christmas present last year. I have enjoyed the great sound that it produces and length of time that it lasts in between charges. My only complaint is that this month it stopped working. That is less than one year of using it. I would say that I would fit in the "occasionally used it" category so it isn't like I was always using it. I would say 1-2 times a week. Now when I turn on the power button it plays the music for about 1 second and then stops playing despite the fact that the power button is still lit up and it is fully charged. I want to buy another one because it has been such a great speaker, but I'm hesitant if it won't last longer than a year.
I recently called about my rock out 2 that started cutting out while it played, they asked my to send a pic of the unit with the cord cut and they would send me a new one in the mail. My unit was over a year old and they asked no questions just agreed to send one. If the unit comes in good time I will post another positive feedback review.
I bought this about a month ago to replace my early Rock Out (doesn't seem like that version is around anymore) and I like it for use on my laptop. The reason that I bought it was to use it with my Kindle to listen to audio books but, for some reason, it skips a few words at the beginning of nearly each paragraph, which is annoying. So, I'll have to find something else to use with my Kindle since my other older Rock Out has died.
They sound really good. They hold a good long charge. Well worth it!!
Got this for my husband for Christmas. He loved it. Great sound and good compact size. Fits in backpack good. Happy :)
I've had this for a year now and it holds a great charge and most recently I took it on a rafting trip and completely sunk it in water for a hour and it still worked I know they said extremely water resistant but I surely did not expect this water resistant.
I just bought the Rock Out 2 for a planned camping trip. The battery life and ruggedness of the product are what sold me but after a couple attempts at using it, I have yet to get any of the controls (play/pause/skip) to work. I have tried using it with my iPhone 5S through a variety of apps, (Pandora, Spotify and Apple Music) with no luck. I have to open up the case and use the device. I have also tried with an iPod Nano with the same result. Sound quality is good so I am giving this 2 stars. The packaging and user's manual state that: "*External controls optimized to work with Apple (R) and Windows (R) products" I've tried two Apple devices, sad to say I'll probably be returning it.
This thing is awesome!! 3 day camping trip solo in eastern PA was a great relaxing trip and this little speaker made my trip more enjoyable. I was streaming music and some radio shows as well as weather and news and listened through my Rock Out 2 while splitting wood, and taking care of camp things. So glad i got one. makes a difference to have a nice rugged set of speakers in camp. light weight rugged and lashed to the out side of my pack. was even able to listen to it while on a day hike. love it!!
The sound, portability, and protection of the device are great. Sometimes however, the music will pause on its own, or the volume will turn all the way up and down spontaneously. It only happens when my device is plugged into the Rock Out, so I don't believe it's a problem with my device.
I bought these as a gift for someone, mostly for them partly because I knew I'd love them too!! They came in, the packaging was on point. I must say goal zero is marketing solar gadgets in such a cool and hip way. So the box was fun, cudos. The solar speakers were easy to figure out, loved the hookups and easy storage of cords and phone inside the speakers to protect the phone while you are outdoors listening to tunes powered by the sun. I have laced them onto just about everything and I just love them. I want more. The sound quality is great, and projects fairly well for it's size.
