Rated 5 out of 5 by from GOLF TUNES I bought this to play Pandora thru my iPhone while playing a round of golf. The design of the Hang Around series is compact and fits nicely in dash board storage area of the golf cart. The "depth of sound" from this speaker is very good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Speaker that really "hangs around" The Hang around speaker has great quality for this kind of speaker, great Mid and bass levels and decent treble. The Speaker on my use has up to 15 hours at a decent volume, pairing has worked great so far with all of my devices as well. The only thing I don't like is the charging cable, and the somewhat odd sounds it makes when turning off and on. ( the start up and turn off sound when powering the device in or off) The build quality is also superb, good job JAM!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm so happy I got this!! Easy to use, easy to set up and definitely loud enough! I bought because of where I work which is REALLY noisy and I wanted a speaker that'd I'd be able to actually hear. It's loud enough for me and everyone around me! I'm more than pleased with this purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound, good looking speaker Super sound quality for such a compact speaker. Volume can be turned up without distorting the sound. Really easy to use and I love the little noise it makes on start up. WoIuld def recommend this product

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great buy I listened to the store demo and was impressed enough to buy it. After fully changing and syncing with my phone, the music would bog down like someone had their finger on a record. I rebooted both speaker and phone and has worked flawlessly since. Highly recommend

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality I’ve had this for a about a week and definitely recommend to others, great sound quality and really like the subwoofer on the back of it, really easy to use, have used at social gatherings and everyone has said how good it is and would look in to buying one

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ideal size for Holidays! The hang around portable speaker is perfectly suited for popping in the suitcase. This will definately be a go-to item for all future getaways! The fact it’s waterproof is really beneficial too. Sound quality and features are great too! I also like the stylish design. Really happy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very useful I connected the device (the bluetooth connectivity is perfect) with my video projector to watch tv/movies, it's like a giant tv with a great sound. I also use it with my cellphone and it's good too. I appreciate the cable storage on the product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A brilliant bit of portable kit. The Hang Around Black is a great little addition to our household. It is light weight and compact and the charging cable is built right in. I have two small children who like to listen to podcasts, music and stories from my phone and the speaker means we can move around from room to room and listen with no problems. I find that it produces a good sound and the volume controls are easy to use. It links via bluetooth to my phone so I have access to everything on my phone. It is nice and sturdy and takes up very little space considering the excellent quality sound. We plan on taking it with us on holiday and it will be handy for camping as well. The only negatives are that the charging cable is quite short and it seems you have to disconnect it from one device before another device can link to it. Would highly recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow, simply wow! I was a bit hesitant about this, based on previous experience with Bluetooth speakers... Well, this hesitance was in no way justified. The sound of this is incredible for the size of it! I was particularly surprised at how bassy it was given its relatively small dimensions! If you're in the market for a compact bluetooth speaker, with big sound then I highly recommend this! Oh, and did I forget to mention it's about as user friendly as is possible to be :-)
Date published: 2018-07-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing sound quality! I could not believe that such a small and portable speaker could deliver such high quality sound! I was really impressed! Very easy to use and connect to devices via Bluetooth. Instructions for charging using the built in usb/charger cable are vague.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound quality I've used this now on holiday and am very impressed with the sound quality, especially outdoors. It syncs up via Bluetooth to my phone and has a good range - we moved it away from the phone about 20 ft and it worked a dream. Perfect for barbeques outdoors, the sound is crisp and clear and the casing is quite hardy so we will definitely keep using it on our travels.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super handy I really like this speaker. It's simple to use and it is so handy to have out and about. It seems bump proof and did well in a dusty location while I was doing some DIY. I haven't tested the waterproof feature but it does say that it's waterproof and I believe it. The sound quality is also good. Whilst streaming Netflix and connected to the speaker via Bluetooth I would say there is a slight delay in the sound compared to the image but I really plan to use this for music on the go which is what it is designed towards. It is really compact and the cables fold neatly into a ridge in the device so there are no extra parts to this. They have seals around where each cable slots in to protect them so it's very clever indeed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Banging sound! Received today! Opened the box to find a very touchable and tactile portable speaker, soft and smooth to the touch. Fantastic, loud, clear and crisp sound quality. Great bass and vibration on the speaker. Easy to use and strong Bluetooth connection around my flat. Will really enjoy using this speaker

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use This is one of the best bluetooth speakers i have used packs a punch love that the charging cable is intergrated in to the speaker so when travling the cable is there easy to use just conect and your offlove the fact its water profe with having kids

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good mid range speaker Good mid range Bluetooth speaker. Slightly tricky to use first few times as not instantly obvious how to connect to devices. Sounds quality good for such a compact speaker. Definitely recommend for the price!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Seems to be solid First one I’ve bought so little basis for comparison but it seems solid, it sounds pretty good and is easy to use. My GF’s phone wouldn’t connect but not sure if that was the phone or the speaker.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from JAM Hang great design This is a great speaker and the connection is very good! Very light and It sounds great. The battery doesn't last as long as the reviews... so for that is a one start less and I will probably give 3 stars only.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Product is great but... I was given this for my birthday. No one could understand the directions because they are only pictures in the manual. Normally this would make understanding easier but the pictures were crazy! Finally my son-in-law started it working without using the alien manual. I love it

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very light so perfect for travelling This speaker is super light, connects easily to different phones and tablets and was perfect for a recent holiday with only hand luggage. The sound is decent, though not as good as other speakers. A USB charging cable is integrated- very convenient- though I kept thinking it was to hang the speaker on. Incidentally, the loop for hanging it up is on the small side, so couldn’t hang it on everything.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy set up, convenient and durable. Got this for a fitness festival in the countryside in Kent. I have a Bose Soundlink Mini which I take with me on holidays but am always too protective to take it anywhere more rugged. This speaker certainly felt more sturdy and is far lighter making potential drops far less worrying. The level of sound is very good though it can’t get the level of base of some of the bulkier machines. Still if you’re camping like I was it’s perfect to have in your tent or around the fire and particularly strong for acoustic or chill out.
Date published: 2018-07-22
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really great sound This product is really good. I was not expecting the sound quality to be this good considering the price of the speaker. The charging is simple and easy and very straightforward to use. My only criticism is that when you are using it, if hooked up to your phone you can not use your phone for anything else (such as taking photos) without the sound/connection dropping. However overall I am very happy with the product, great for outdoor parties.

Q & A

How many watts?

Asked by: Jim Brickman
2 speakers at 5 watts each = 10 watts tottal output @4 ohms , which also is 5 watts @8 ohms rms power,  and also is 20 watts @ 2 ohms .  they are 4 ohm speakers so  there  2 × 5 watts each = 10 watts  .  on amazom  in the UK it says 10 watts

It will not pair with my phone. I have turned both on and off in different orders. The blue light is blinking like it is paired (according to the directions) but it isn't. No alternating red/blue light indicating that it is searching for a device. Ideas?

I have a weird issue. When I first got I just used an aux with my phone. After using bluetooth nothing will play on it with an aux cord. It still does bluetooth just fine. Devices work with other things just fine but aux no longer works on the speaker?
