There's a lot to like about this in spite of a few flaws.

How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget Summary

The Soundfreaq Sound Kick sets a new bar for sub-$100 Bluetooth speakers — at least as far as sound quality is concerned. Compared to other budget speakers, it provides great sound, and can be played at reasonably high volumes without distortion. However, it's bulkier than a lot of other portable speakers, doesn't include a speakerphone, and can't be charged over USB (though it does include a USB port, so you can use it to charge your smartphone). If you don't need a speakerphone or a pocket-sized speaker, and don't want to spend too much, the Sound Kick is a good choice.
