Love Makita but this product needs a lot of improvement. Here are the issues I have with it:
Very low sound power output. Maxed out, and with phone all the way up its not loud enough unless you are in a small room with nothing else on. Forget about using it in a construction site.
Bluetooth range is very bad. Seems like they are either using an older version/iteration of bluetooth tech or the internal antenna is too shielded from the inside. You have to have your phone in clear sight to the speaker on no further than about 6 ft or else it will start disconnecting.
Does not allow someone else to pair to it unless you completely unpair your phone first. Most speakers now a days allow you to have more than one device paired and easily switch between them.
No auto shut off. If you forget to turn it off, it will stay on until the battery drains. They need to incorporate a no signal auto shut off feature.
I cant recommend this speaker and for this cost with these issues. I will gladly pay more if they address them.

Excellent sound quality and sturdy construction. A little heavy but quite portable. Excellent reception for radio stations and like having presets for stations. Disappointed that there isn't an option to buy a bundled package with a battery and that the power cord doesn't fit for storage within the unit (it is barely too big!)
