Got this about 4 days after I ordered regular shipping. Was impressed. Like other have stated when the plug in cord is moved around there can be some static or scratchy noise. Usually just occurs when getting it all set up and ready to go. I haven't taken it out yet in the field but it is small enough to pack on any backpacking trip and weighs minimal, was kind of hoping it would weigh less but it's really not a big deal. Haven't tested the battery life yet but for sound I don't think you can find better for same price and size. You don't get a big bass sound but all around it is very respectable. Let's be real no. One buys this for bass anyways. I do enjoy the fact it zippers apart and you can stuff your mp3 player or phone size related items into the zipper compartment. Very handy and well thought out. Overall I would highly recommend to anyone looking for great sound, solar comparability, and low price.
There is no way to use my two early Rockouts anymore so I bought this one and was really excited about it. However, it cuts out as I try to listen to my audiobooks and/or use it with my Kindle, iPad, or Mac computer. This is useless to me because of that defect and I've here that others have the same problem. Please bring back the wonderful original.
I've had my camo rock out 2 for several years now. I usually just use it while I'm in the shower but I've taken it camping and hunting on numerous occasions. When I'm only using it while I'm in the shower, one charge will easily last a few months. When I take it to work and use it for music instead of the radio in my work van, I'll get around a week's worth of charge from it before needing to plug it in again. It's been the best speaker I've ever owned. Also, while I'm out hunting, I leave it hanging on my pack so I have a secure place to store my phone. My phone is water proof but this just adds even more protection from the elements.
I just got one as an early Christmas gift. I wish I had known the external buttons are optimized for Windows or I phone. Although it sounds great and will serve its purpose(mountain and road biking),it sucks that I won't be able to use it to its fullest extent, unless I go buy an I phone since I have as Galaxy S6. I thought my I pod Nano or Touch would work. But nope, same results, can't use external buttons. Have to stop, open the GZ and use the buttons from whatever I have attached to the GZ. Still a good product, but maybe the description should specify that external button are optimized for Windows or I phone.
Bought it as a Christmas gift to myself, works fine, there is a weird buzzing noise when I play it with my tablet, but no buzzing noise when I play it with my phone, kinda weird
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 :)
