I LOVE mine. I got mine from amazon "used" for $44...it was brand new .
It's perfect for in the house or being near it outside. Do not expect it to fill a back yard with jams.
I use it when I get ready in the morning, I can hear it while I'm in the shower / in the other room getting dressed. I also strap it to my bike when I don't feel like wearing headphones when I ride, and I have no problem hearing it in either of those situations...with room to go louder.
