5 out of 5 eggsWow - the sound is impressive

Pros: This thing rocks! It is loud and we never max it out because it just becomes painful... at max volume it doesn't distort. Once paired w/ Bluetooth will always reconnect without trouble. Used in both indoor and outdoor settings. Played back both Pandora, MP3s and FLACs files over Bluetooth... no issues...

Cons: the controls on the device (volume up and down are fine) don't respond well, your not sure if you are actually pressing the buttons. The pairing process was not intuitive and gave me initial concerns when setting it up (definite improvement there).

Other Thoughts: haven't really used the 3.5mm connector, assume it works fine.

haven't used the battery setup

5 out of 5 eggsKlipsch KMC 3 Review

Pros: 1) Its size - I actually wanted something a bit smaller, however, after listening to many speakers and knowing what would make an audio enthusiast content, I had to go for something a bit larger. Klipsch did a great job with the size of this (7.2" H x 17" W x 5.5" D). you get big sound in a relatively small package. They do in fact sell a smaller version of this speaker - KMC 1, and an ultra portable model coming soon - GIG. I've not heard them due to availability in stores.

2) APT-X Codec - I won't get into details, but if you have a capable bluetooth apt-x device, you will absolutely tell the difference in audio quality between those that do, and those that do not. It's a shame Bose is stubborn, and will probably never use this technology in their speakers. All bluetooth speakers should be using apt-x at this point.

3) Design - It's sleek, mature, classy. From soft finish to solid hefty feel, it oozes quality.

4) Sound Clarity - Again going back to apt-x. Every sound is extremely crisp. others without apt-x sound dull in comparison. I've even listened to music with a non apt-x source as well - iphones. The sound is still better on this speaker than other similarly priced ones. If you have an apt-x device such as many Samsung phones / tablets. I highly suggest a 3rd party music app called Neutron. You will hear audiophile sound coming from this speaker. It's truly an experience, so much so, you will want to listen to all of your favorites again.

5) Bass - Again, very clean at MORE than reasonable sound levels. I've read others say it can get a bit muddy when at extreme levels, but lets face it...anything this compact will. Let me tell you it's not even a concern. I have this thing sitting on top of a granite table, bar height...and it shakes the floor around it, well before any hint of sloppiness. You have to have the thing nearly maxed out, and be listening to something very bass heavy in order for it to get that way.

6) IR Remote - Important if the speaker is up, out of the way when home or you just need to turn it on remotely. I've also found an IR remote app that lets me turn the speaker on with my smart phone - Awesome.

Cons: I clearly love this speaker, but if I were a perfectionist, Hmm. There are a couple things I would change.

1) Create an app to allow multiple speakers play simultaneously via bluetooth. Ultimate ears (Logitech) does this with the UE Boom speakers. It would be amazing to hear two of these things come together to create a wide stereo sound.

2) Allow "Heist" mode. This allows multiple devices to connect to the speaker at the same time - great for parties as those connected to the speaker can switch to music from their own devices instantly. Without the other person having to disconnect and they having to pair their device again. Motorola's S Republic X has this feature.

3) Water resistance / More ruggedized / Carrying case? This is something I was really wanting. I feel like Klipsh doesn't even need to change the speaker to do this. Maybe just provide an accessory case that makes you feel more comfortable about plopping your 400 dollar speaker on the grass, or at the beach, etc. As of now it has that pristine feeling that you want to swaddle it in a micro fleece blanket and never let it leave your sight. That could just be me though. : )

4) Indicator light on front. The design I believe they were going for is to resemble an amphitheater. The housing starts smaller in the back and widens to the front. It's nice and sleek, but the speaker needs to be below eye level in order for you to see the lights / tell if it's on or off. Kind of nit picking here.

Other Thoughts: Like many of you reading this I searched long and hard for reviews, Youtube videos, anything I could find out there. It wasn't until the speaker became available in stores (I could go listen) that I decided to take the plunge. - SO glad that I did.

I will be honest and tell you I'm a bit of a Klipsch fan. I have a 7.2 setup of Klipsch quintets in one room. Main living room has a 7.1 Klipsch reference II series set. But, what I also wanted was to be able to take that quality of audio with me. Camping, backyard parties, fishing...I can't wait (getting cold here on the east coast, so it might be awhile.) After auditioning some of the major brands and better bluetooth speaker options (list below) I can say for certain, the KMC 3 is the best I've heard.

Speakers I've listened to:

Bose sound link 2
Bose sound link mini
UE Boom
UE mini boom
Beats pill
Beats Beatbox
Sony srs-btx300
JBL Flip
Jawbone Big Jambox
Motorola S Republic X
Jabra Solemate

I've researched many others as well, a lot, and probably too much time has gone into finding what I wanted...bit obsessive maybe? For sure. BUT, Let me pass what I've learned onto you (See Pros / Cons).

Final Thoughts:

You will not believe the sound emanating from this thing, neither will your friends and family. I would highly suggest this speaker to anyone looking for something in the 300-400 dollar range. That is a lot of money, but I urge you to go have a listen somewhere and compare others as well. From everything I've read, heard, compared, to now owning. It's sure to impress, and I have a feeling you'll come to the same conclusion - It's the best Bluetooth speaker right now.
