I love this little thing!

Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
The product seems to be made very well. I have used it inside and out and have even dropped it and had no issues at all.
What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could?
Probably the best feature is how loud this thing gets for it's size. In an average sized room, more often than not, you will need to turn it DOWN rather than run out of headroom. It is also extremely fast and easy to set up with your iPad, computer and phone (I use it will all three depending on what I am doing).
Ease of Use
How easy is this product to use? How easy is the product to use with other products? Did it take long for you to learn to use this product? Was the manual helpful? How playable do you consider this product to be?
Very easy to use. You basically hit one button to pair it to your Bluetooth device. It also has voice commands which are pretty cool!
How is the tone?
It is a little on the "bright" side if you have the two smaller speakers facing you. I'm not exactly sure how Monster expects you to use this, but I usually turn it around so that the back "speaker" (I think it's actually a passive radiator) is facing me. When I do that, I am very pleased with the tone and especially the bass response for it's size.
Your general opinion of this product.
Now that I have this, I can't live without it! I literally take this thing everywhere I go. Since it is wireless and battery operated, I can use it with Spotify on my iPad (or my Droid) and I have a completely mobile music system. I also use it in the kitchen for listening to iTunes and other music files (as well as Spotify). As a musician, it's great for me to reference mixes on so I can get an idea of how my songs will sound in the real world.
