Sound quality and volume:
This little system packs great sound and runs great with all the phones/tablets in my home. We're a gadget familty, so we use various Android devices, including the HTC MyTouch 4G, Amaze 4G, Samsung Galaxy 3, Asus Transformer Prime, a couple of generic 7" tablets), all them with the PlayerPro music app, along with a couple laptops and iPods. This speaker has way better sound than any phone or tablet, and even better volume and quality than the JBL speakers on our Lenovo and the Altec Lansing speakers on our Asus laptops. I can't believe how much bass I get while holding this thing. The first few days I had it, a new song from our library would come on that sounded especially good and I'd run over to my wife to show how loud and clear it was.

Control Buttons:
As for the controls, I know the Rockout 2 is made to be iPhone compatible, since the Android OS allows apps to override the control scheme for headsets and microphones, compatibility with Android is more app dependent than phone dependent. The volume buttons work with any setup, even my laptop. The play/pause, back, and forward buttons work with all our phones and tablets...I know PlayerPro can override all other headset controls and customize them. The default settings on that app work great with this speaker. Even without the player control buttons working (like on a laptop), I just use the player itself and it's still worth having on hand.

Uses:
So far, we've taken the Rockout 2 camping and hiking, protecting my phone inside the housing and using the little clip and bungee system on the back to hang it from a tree, my frame pack, the tent, and even strapped like a little backpack to our little girl as she played on the trail (great for keeping track of her without keeping too close an eye). I strap it to my arm while doing chores and hang it from the back door handle while gardening. Earphones hurt after awhile and headphones isolate me from people around me, like my family, so this is great when I need more sound than the built-in speakers on my portable devices (which is pretty much always). All around, this is a fantastic accessory to mobile media centers.

Charging:
I use this at fairly high volumes for hours a day and typically charge about once a week. I don't know the exact run times, but so far I've never gotten to the point where I "needed" to charge and just plugg it into my phone's USB charger (sweet!) whenever I remember to and it has worked for me. That's a fresh experience compared to all my other electronics where the first thing I have to do when I get to work or back home is plug it in. On our camping trip, we had the Rockout playing music and as the audio for a movie on our tablet for most of one night, then plugged it into a Nomad 7 the next morning and had it playing all day and into the next night without ever getting to the end of its charge.

One last thing about this speaker is that it looks and feels very robust and very cool. I'm pretty careful with my electronics, but some people in my family aren't. Not only did it make it through a lot of abuse with a bunch of kids in the wilderness while camping, it protected my phone inside a pretty rugged housing. I don't care as much about looks either, but if my wife appreciates the looks of an electronic gadget enough to comment on it, you know it looks good. Now I just want to get another one so I can chain them together for double the sound...

Weak audio connector

I bought one after seeing witnessing one of the Cotsco inside display. After the second time that I used the device, the connector failed to work accordingly. I had to return this item...Read complete review

Groovy, green and rugged!

Comments about Goal Zero Rock Out 2 Portable Speaker, each:

I bought these as a gift for someone, mostly for them partly because I knew I'd love them too!! They came in, the packaging was on point. I must say goal zero is marketing solar gadgets in such a cool and hip way. So the box was fun, cudos. The solar speakers were easy to figure out, loved the hookups and easy storage of cords and phone inside the speakers to protect the phone while you are outdoors listening to tunes powered by the sun. I have laced them onto just about everything and I just love them. I want more. The sound quality is great, and projects fairly well for it's size.

I bought these speakers for my bike and took them on a recent MS150 trek from Houston to Austin. Didn't have to charge them once, and they survived the rain!

Comments about Goal Zero Rock Out 2 Portable Speaker, each:

I recently bought this and will not be testing it as I have nothing to play it with. This is my gift for my son who recently returned from Afghanistan and is coming to Idaho to go camping with the family. This is his birthday gift!

Wonderful speakers! :)

By Kimmie

from Las Vegas, NV

Comments about Goal Zero Rock Out 2 Portable Speaker, each:

This is a wonderful device! It's tough, resists water and dirt when closed. It sounds great, charges swiftly, and is easy to set up. Controls are on the outside, and if your phone works with it, you can store it and protect it inside the device. Handy!
