I bought this for me. I use it while I'm in the shower, when I'm cooking, cleaning the house, and while I am outside enjoying the weather. This speaker is pretty loud and is very durable. This speaker doesnt have a static sound when I play music. I havent figured out how to play fm/am radio on it yet. But from other reviews I heard its possible. I defiently reconmend this speaker to anyone in search of a reasonable price speaker that actually works!
