Bluetooth is just the way to go these days right? Connecting you to everything but without the cord, it's hard to find the downsides to a lot of Bluetooth devices. That's why we'll be taking a look at the Sharkk Bluetooth 4.0 Speaker, giving you the power to stream your music anywhere you go.

The Details
The design is very simplified and condensed down into a unit about the size of your fist. Just picking it up, it feels pretty solid, though I'll refrain from launching it across the room to test that, lol. This speaker claims a 10 hour battery life, and can be recharged with a micro USB cable, just as most cell phones today can. There is also a strong foam, non-stick base.

My first hand experience
Using the Sharkk Speaker was very easy. The instructions are very simple to read for connecting the Bluetooth. I didn't have any problems at all syncing the speaker with my phone. The speaker arrived about half charged already, but I decided to charge it all the way. Using the provided USB cable, I left it plugged in over night. The ring around it will flash different colors and in different styles to let you know if it's full or almost out of power.

The sound quality was really good. I was able to get a pretty loud volume out of this speaker without noticing any loss in sound quality. The range was pretty decent too, but I was able to obstruct it. While streaming music from a phone, after about 40 ft, depending on visibility (Bluetooth doesn't require a visible path, but the radio waves will be reduced traveling through various objects) the music would start breaking up, any further and it would sometimes stop playing all together. If you plan to have this in a stationary position, you may want to have it in the center of your house depending on what you're syncing it with.

The usability was never a problem. The controls on the speaker are very straight forward and worked great. Syncing it wasn't an issue, and the battery lasted me comfortably an entire day without needing to recharge. When this speaker isn't in use, you can manually turn it off to conserve the battery. The foam non-stick bottom makes sure this speaker won't get knocked off a shelf or rattle it's way off when you're really blasting the music.

My Conclusion
The Sharkk Bluetooth 4.0 Speaker works great. The sound quality was very good, it was able to reach higher volumes than I expected while keeping that sound quality. The battery also exceeded my expectations. The one thing I really love about this speaker is the simple compact design of it, makes it easy to place in a room almost anywhere without needing to make a consideration for it to be yet another piece of furniture. It fits perfectly on any shelf, on a bar, or just on a coffee table.
