Rated 5 out of 5 by from All Around Amazing I have been looking into getting a Bluetooth speaker, but I didn’t want to spend a fortune. I found this one and I bought it immediately!! It has great sound and really good base for its size. And I also love the fact that it’s waterproof and dust proof!! I would definitely recommend!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Are you kidding me? I have 2 of these, had them for about 2 months, just recently my master unit started beeping. I downloaded the manual to see why, turns out I haven't been charging it, my old guy tech skills I just left the end of the wire in the speaker, and assumed it was always connected in its storage spot, I'm a dummy but the battery life is astounding!

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 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 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 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 Amazing little speaker :) This speaker is just amazing. Superb quality and the sound is second to none. So small you can bring it anywhere. I love it ! We have taken it away in our caravan, it’s a brilliant accessory to our trip :)

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 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.

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 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 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 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 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 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 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 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 :-)

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?
