Nice everyday type of use for a well made bluetooth speaker with decent sound playback.
Overall I am impressed with the speaker's performance. I read many of the reviews but my use would not be actually in the water so was willing to try. Specifically I purchased to use on the patio for background music and especially when using in the hot tub where is sits nicely on the edge and gets splashed on. The rubbery material makes it easy to grip with wet hands and stays put on uneven surfaces. The sound quality is good but not great mostly because the volume is not overwhelming. When trying it in the water it does float and the sound drops off but you can easily see where water pools up in the tiny holes and blocks the sound (never a risk the water will get inside so far). If you firmly shake it the sound is normal again. Have not tested the full time of a charged battery but had no issues with it cutting out too soon during a party. Range is good all around the patio - perhaps 40' line of sight.
Cons are the button are visually hard to see and up from down is hard to differentiate. It would be help to make the working buttons a contrasting color to read the symbols for volume, pause, etc. easier A minor annoyance is needing to press and hold down the power button to turn on or off until the light comes on/off. Not sure why it can't just be an easy press on/off. They should make the bluetooth button it's own instead of tying it in with the power button.

I LOVE IT!
I LOVE this thing! It is completely able to resist water for long periods of time, it floats and it plays music really loud! I appreciate all the controls I have with it so that I do not have to get out of the pool or hot tub to go change the volume, song or other settings. I am truly happy with this purchase and will highly recommend this to anyone! I have had mine for about a month and it plays like I just took it out of the box! Very impressive and has a long play time too! Totally worth it!

DOA in <45 days
When it worked it was good. Got this as a gift for my wife for mothers day, as she enjoys music in the pool while swimming. Upon first operation it was easy to use, had decent volume for the price and size. Then it was all downhill.
Upon 2nd use (first use was maybe 10 minutes because we utilized it's first battery life), the volume was nearly inaudible. Tried recharging, resyncing, and then got on the line with 2DayDeliver customer service. As I was on with the technician I reset the device, and it became functional again.
After the 5th use it's DOA. Doesn't charge, doesn't light up. Since I got it as a gift, and it was past the 30 day mark, I couldn't swap with amazon, so have needed to go through a lengthy warranty process with NYNE. I'll be getting this out to them for repair or replacement and hope my replacement unit doesn't do the same thing.
But it floats, and when it did work it was good.

Good sound, but
Good sound, but... Don't buy if you want it play for more than an hour of uninterrupted play. Mine is not connected to Bluetooth, but is directly plugged in via the audio cable & it still shuts off. I just spent $80 on a speaker I planned to use for sleep sounds all night & it turns off after an hour of play. This really just sucks.

Looks good, loses connection too often
Item looks nice but only works half the time. You have to have yor phone too close to the speaker to make it work. As people are swimming in the pool and the item is bobbing around it easily loses connection to whatever device you have it linked to.

Works great ....but
Works great but don't let the speaker get submerged because water fills up the tiny holes and muffles the sound. It should be marketed as it is but we like the sound and use it next to the hot tub so it's nice that we don't have to worry about it falling in and getting ruined!

Dissapointed with the sound in the water
Terribly disappointed. The sound in the water is poor. Outside the water it is serviceable and it looks attractive but there are many Bluetooth speakers (I have several) that do a nice job. The differentiation here was the waterproof/floating attribute. The sound was disappointing in the water. Maybe better on the side of a pool or Jacuzzi but not in it.

Great sound but don't put it in the water
Speaker has great sound when OUTSIDE of the water. Once you put it into the water and it is floating the sound is terrible. If water gets into the speaker grill then you can not understand what is happening. Also the bluetooth is pretty sketchy. It takes several minutes for it to reconnect to your device. Would not recommend this product to my friends or family.

Cant hear it!!!
This speaker is terrible. It is not loud at all. If you are not within like 3 feet of it you wont hear it at all. Due to family issues I missed my return window and am now stuck with a speaker I will NEVER use!
