Customer Reviews

Hang Around Bluetooth Speaker is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 59.
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 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.

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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sound is good but no so straight forward to operat The item is light weight and is as described. The sound is of good quality too. I own a beats pill and I can't tell the difference in sound quality! However, my only issue with this speaker is thay it's not so straight forward to operate. It would be helpful if the power button was a bit more obvious than a line between two buttons and if the buttons were better marked to make it obvious what function each button has. The charger is at the bottom of the speaker. This speaker is not as attractive as the beats pill but sound quality wise, it's so similar. This for a fraction of the price of a beats pill is worth it. However, it takes some time to get used to the buttons and what their actual functions are.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice sound I bought this last week sounds nice works great do recommend too other. One down fall is battery don’t last long says up to 20 hour play time but never last longer than 7 hours which is less than my shift at work which is why wanted it to last my whole shift 12 plus hour

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Stopped working the next day The speaker has a great design and connectivity however it stopped working the next day of the purchase. Very disappointing.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Frustrating is an understatement. Never remembers pairings. A bluetooth speaker with occassional bluetooth functionality is a waste of money. Useless piece of plastic. Do not buy. Stick with Sony.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Quit working after an outing or two After using the speaker for a beach/dock day or two, it quit working. Despite giving it a full charge, the speaker now automatically shuts off after two to three minutes of play time.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Incomprehensible Quick Start Guide Just took this out of the box today. I asked the guy at Best Buy if this would work with my laptop and he assured me that it would. There are no words on the Quick Start guide, just a lot of pictures which I don't understand. I went to the website hoping there would be more info, but it just has the same instruction book. It's like watching a mime tell you how to hook this up. I followed all of the instructions that I could find on the website and it appears that my computer connected to the device but so far no sound is coming out of it. If you enjoy charades or watching mimes, this may be the product for you. If you want something to connect to a laptop that works, maybe find something else.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Key Flaw in what's advertised I bought two Jam Hang Arounds a few months ago with the intent of pairing them to listen to while at work. Unfortunately, they refused to pair, and the hieroglyphs used as the instructions are terrible at explaining what is required to pair them, as well as having to slog through over an hour of YouTube videos to find 30 seconds visually showing two hang arounds next to each other while the YouTuber talks about their connecting capabilities, just to have them not demonstrate it. This morning I bought another hang around, and it refuses to connect to either of the other two I have. Overall decent sound and if you need a single speaker it's great, but don't waste the money if you're looking for something that'll connect to another speaker.

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?

My Bluetooth is not appearing on any devices it turns on but just doesn't show up so I have no way to pair to it.

Asked by: Anonymous
Once turned on, the speaker will immediately search for a device to pair to; the LED will blink red and blue alternately. Enable Bluetooth on your device. From the Bluetooth menu, select “Hang Around.” When the device and Hang Around are connected, you will hear a tone and the LED will turn solid blue.

How do you use headphones with jam hang around?

Asked by: Jennifer
Thank you for your questions. This speaker plays music only from a mobile device or computer through an aux cable. You cannot connect another pair of headphones to this speaker.
