Nice portable speaker with a battery that last ages. The build quality is really impressive with a rubber top and fabric sides, its not the lightest of things but when the battery lasts around 10-12 hours and a decent speaker you can understand why. The packaging is exactly like an apple product and even the instructions come in a white little packet like an iphone. As far as connections go you have a micro usb slot to charge the thing and a 3. 5mm socket to connect if your device doesn’t have bluetooth. Connecting via bluetooth was easy, all i had to do was turn it on with the big button on the top and search for the device on my phone and click connect. Changing the volume on my phone would then be indicated around the power button with little leds showing you how loud it was. One other thing to mention is its got some really cool like sounds when you turn it off and on, sounds like a pod racer from star wars. My wife couldn’t connect with her phone via bluetooth but my phone did and they are the same phone so couldn’t figure that one out so she used the 3. One thing i found was the sound and mainly the base would change depending on what surface you sit the speaker on, sitting it on our wood floor would make the base sound louderwhen i 1st got the speaker i charged it to full and the battery has lasted a very long time so far, i would say well over 9-10 hours at a loud volume so very impressive. Only slight negative is you need a little usb plug to charge it up but as most people have one of these anyway to charge phones its not really a problem.
Quality sound and construction, reasonably priced in comparison with its peers but the omission of a charger is just mean. First impressions are good, the speaker design is appealing and it feels solid yet small enough to be truly portable. Set up is straight forward through a bluetooth connection so it should pose no problems to get up and running quickly. It is not a wifi speaker but it does have bluetooth +1 which allows you to pair it to another speaker for a stereo sound. The real test of a speaker isn’t the software, it isn’t the look and it isn’t ease of use, it’s all about the sound quality of the product. If a speaker was hard to set up, difficult to operate and ugly as sin and it produced audio perfection, no one would complain. This is 360 degree omni directional portable speaker, the design is such that the speakers inside point upwards and the sound is diffused all round by the plastic top cover. It works really well sit it in the middle of a room and walk round it and you will hear the same quality of sound in any place you stand. 5” drivers and a passive driver under the bonnet.
Nice product, but there are others out there. This little bluetooth speaker is a great little product. It links easily to your iphone, is very compact, has decent sound quality (surprisingly good for its size) and is splash proof. The battery life is reasonable too. Mine is a dark grey colour which won’t show dirt too badly which is good as it has no protective case. It didn’t come with a usb charger either but it’s not really a problem as most people have several in their homes already. It would be ideal for a student at uni or a teenager. It comes in lovely packaging too – very slick and simple. Would be really fun to use camping or having a barbecue in your garden. It’s worth checking out similar products in this price range before you click the buy button – i would recommend the ue (ultimate ears) roll or the new roll 2 – these are completely waterproof, sound jaw droppingly good for the size and has very funky styling. Here are the specifications for the Libratone One Click Wireless Splash Proof tooth Speaker – Cerise:
- Enter your model number
to make sure this fits.
- High-quality 360 degrees sound
- Ultra compact, weather resistant design up to IPX4 – splash proof
- Built-in rechargeable batteries giving up to 12 hours playback
- Play/pause tracks, answer calls and pump up the volume at the touch of a button
- Connect two Libratone speakers with app; double the sound is equal to twice the fun
Doesn’t go massively loud to where you can hear it three houses away but it’s loud enough and has a nice bass to where you can p. Much larger and heavier than expected, however the sound on it is absolutely superb. Doesn’t go massively loud to where you can hear it three houses away but it’s loud enough and has a nice bass to where you can properly enjoy your tunes. Was a bit iffy to set up, there were instructions but nothing to explain about how to take the base off (basically the unit comes out separately from the sides. Basically had to figure it out myself. Usb plugs into the front, a small rubber cover hides the port. While it is somewhat portable, it is quite surprisingly heavy, but has a lovely solid feel about it. Looks very stylish and retro like and old radio-like. Would be very stylish in a kitchen on a shelf. Works wirelessly which is the best part, can take it outside to a shed without needing the plug in.
Failed on only its third use – ok after factory reset. . If you can get past the ghastly colour (thankfully it is available in other colours), this is a good solid wireless bluetooth speaker. The sound is loud and very full, real hi-fi quality. It was also simple to set up; it paired immediately, and connected without a problem. It is an added bonus that the handle can be positioned in various ways; there are extra pieces in the package to assist in this. One slight drawback is that, unless you are using the hanndle to hang the speaker up, it needs to be balanced rather precariously on its side, to give the full benefit of the fine sound. Even the slightest knock or vibration is enough to topple the speaker, and block some of the sound source. However, on my third attempted use, none of my devices could find the speaker, even after re-booting the devices, and fully re-charging the speaker. I have tried again the next day, and still the speaker is totally invisible to all my other devices. I can see from other reviews that another reviewer has had the same problem. I visited the manufacturer’s website, and, after some investigation, i performed a factory reset, and the speaker now functions properly again. I like the speaker, but it appears that there is some sort of reliability problem, so, unfortunately, i could not recommend this item to any potential purchasers.
Reviews from purchasers :

Great looks, grand sound and super-easy to install. Ever since a friend of mine turned up on a group holiday with a bluetooth splash-proof speaker, i have been on the lookout for something portable that also gives a lot of volume. The libratone one is perfect for this: it’s small and light enough to pack in a suitcase or in a bag for a day at the park, but big enough to fit a 3′ woofer and 1′ tweeter. Set up was incredibly easy; my partner and i were able to connect our phones at the same time really quickly with the touch of a bluetooth button. You can also set up the libratone as a trusted device, keeping your phone unlocked whenever it is connected to the speaker, perfect for easy access to podcasts and music players. The libratone app is free to install on apple and android devices and adds extra features, but isn’t essential. With the app you can vary the type of sound, so adjusting the soundscape for spoken word, classical music, pop and so on. You can also connect two speakers together via the app, but one speaker is good enough for me, as the sound it gives is perfect for use at home or in the garden. Podcasts come through clearly and music sounds vibrant and clear. There is a setting on the app to deal with music that is heavily compressed (so, in lower-quality mp3s for example).
Best sound quality i’ve heard in standalone bluetooth speakers. Libratone are onto a winner bluetooth speaker here. It’s packaged extremely well. Reminiscent of unboxing a new iphone. This copies the entire experience down to the minimalist user manual. However the boxing isn’t the only place it shines. The unit itself is a lovely fashionable green colour. I’m not a bright colour person, but i would have no issues turning up with this device under my arm. The unit itself is covered front and back in a nice caribbean green cloth. The outsides are a thick scratch resistant rubber.
This is a smart-looking, splashproof speaker although i worry that the cover could get grubby (best go for the black version?). Inside, there’s an 80mmm woofer, 30mm tweeter and passive driver. It sounds good, certainly up there among the best i’ve tried at the price. There’s plenty of detail and separation, with decent weight and richness to the bass and crisp, clear treble, although i’m a little less sure about the mid-range. Vocals are natural and there’s all the volume most people will want. You can pair it with two devices and fight over who gets to control it. And apparently you can pair two speakers with one device, for stereo sound or to have two speakers playing the same material. There’s a microphone, in case you want to use this as a speakerphone, and a 3. I’ve only run this for about 8 hours, so far, but it hasn’t needed a recharge (micro usb) which makes the claimed 12-hour life seem plausible. The touch controls aren’t immediately intuitive but are a pleasure to use, once you’ve discovered how they work. The speaker’s design will make it unsuitable for some. It needs to be stood on its narrow base (making it unstable) or hung up, for 360° sound. It certainly sounds much better that way than laid flat.
I love the sound quality, and my younger brother has been eyeing this up and saying how great it would be in his kitchen, so it isn’t just me.I think the price point is fair given the market and the quality of the sound. As another reviewer mentioned, it can be hard to get the bluetooth connection to work, but after some initial issues, this seems to have worked out just fine, but this is one of the reasons for 4 rather than 5 stars. Another slight issue, is that there is no carry case, apparently if you want to transport this safely you will need to do so in the original box, which isn’t massively bulky, i grant you, but still no the most efficient space-wise. Given the price point, and that other similar devices tend to come with a travel case, this does seem like an omission. But overall, very happy, and good value for money in my opinion.
Too – portable, easy to use, good sound. . I have been really impressed with this speaker. It comes in a well designed box and includes a smart good length usb cable. It doesn’t have a charger but i have so many anyway it hardly matters. Size wise, see picture where i have put it next to a teaspoon for scale. It’s easy to pair and can also be paired with two phones – which makes sharing easier. Sound quality is excellent with sound coming out from both sides – it’s for the middle of a room or group not the sides. Volume goes to a high level without distortion. Battery life is also excellent. The app gives additional information, allows firmware updates and includes some limited equaliser settings.
As stated in the title the sound from this speaker is very clean and crisp compared to other bluetooth speakers i’ve used for around the same sort of price range. However i must point out that that the bass isn’t the best i’ve hear but from such a compact speaker it was never going to be too powerful. The fact that it gives a 360 degree sound output is nice, so it can be placed in the middle of a room and moving around the room won’t take away from the quality of sound you’re hearing. It was extremely easy to connect to my iphone, a lot easier than some speakers are and the touchpad volume control featuring the libratone logo is a nice touch that gives it a more expensive feel and appearance. The battery life could be better but it depends how high you have the volume but it’s always lasted fairly well for mei’d recommend one of these to any of my friends or family.
High quality sound and design. I have used this speaker for a number of weeks now (i own the cloudy grey one style option), and i really do love it. The rubber has a lovely soft feel to it, and the fabric seems very durable. Overall, it feels like a very high quality item. Also, it has a good weight, without being too heavy. The sound quality is excellent (i also really like the 360 degrees reflector meaning the sound comes from both sides of the speaker). I haven’t downloaded the libratone app yet (however, i will, as i want to keep the firmware updated), so i am literally plugging it into my phone and playing music at the moment, with no fiddling with the sound. It’s very easy to connect to devices via bluetooth (i use it with my samsung galaxy phone), but if you don’t have bluetooth enabled devices, you can also connect it via an aux cable. I do think the sound quality is very slightly better if you connect the speaker to your device via an aux cable rather than using bluetooth, but i believe this to be the case with any bluetooth speaker (i use the anker 3.
Bowled over by the sound quality and ease of setup. Stunning, brilliant, amazing soundthe packaging is elegant and very ‘apple-like’, inside the box is this substantial speaker with a wonderful soft surface – a rugged cloth similar to what you would expect on a traditional loudspeaker but much more robust, and a soft touch rubber edging. Underneath the speaker are the accessories – a usb cable for charging, and a carry handle. In the lid of the box are the simple instructions. Basically, this speaker ha a power switch, which you press and hold for a few seconds and a tone lets you know that the speaker is on. Then all the rest of the controls are on the other side of the speaker. Simply touch the round ‘bird’ button and the speaker can be found in the bluetooth menu of your phone or other audio device. A system of flashing led’s confirms this is working. Press play on your phone (or other device) and music is there.Simply run your finger around the bird control and a rotary set of led’s indicates the volume is going up – reverse to reduce volume.
