Packs the punch in a tiny package. This is the ultimate portable speaker and does everything you would want it to.  The speaker itself is smaller than I expected it to be, but it has been performing spectacularly. Everything was easy to setup and use. Connecting devices via bluetooth is extremely intuitive. Leave it across the room. Leave it on your desk. Bring it to the beach. Bring it on vacation. This speaker is so portable and the built in battery is genius. Having such a portable speaker has made me realize what I've been missing out on. You can literally take your music anywhere and share it. If you're looking for a speaker for anything. Your phone. Tablet. Ereader. Laptop. Literally anything. This is the perfect match.

The Nook speaker is amazing. I use it for my good sized living room area and it can really fill the room. I pair my iPhone to it over Bluetooth and it just works well. The sound can get quite loud and the bass is surprisingly great coming from such a small package. Battery life has shown to be 9+ hours enough for our camping trip this weekend.

This thing is awesome! We use it out on our patio by the barbeque and play Pandora through our iPhone. Great sound and super easy to set up and move around.

This little box is amazing. For a non-tech person like me, it is very simple set-up. It can be placed pretty much any where. It is easy to carry in one hand. It looks very smooth and elegant. Clear sounds. I am extremely impressed.

I was initially impressed by the NOOK Audio BT500 good looks. The buttons are arranged in a logical order with fairly easy to use. The sound quality is delivered in clear and crisp rich bass. I was really surprise and impressed by the bass and clarity for its size. In summary, the things I like most about the Nook Audio besides the sound quality are the design and the ease of use. The displays are simple and logical, the way they should be. The user's guide is thorough, direct, and concise, and Bluetooth connected really easily….simple push of a button. The focus here is not on pushing a lot of buttons, it's on listening to the music. The Nook Audio is small and will fit just about anywhere you want to put it, without drawing attention to itself. For me, it was worth every penny.

This is as loud and crystal clear as my home theater system!  Music and movies sounds incredible from the nook.

Wow!  This is actually my third "portable" speaker, but it's the first wireless in my collection.  Who would have guessed that such a great, well-rounded sound would come out of such a small box?  Most small speakers lack in bass, but not this one! Buy one and be prepared to be amazed!  This might be a bit more expensive that the iHome products, but one listen will wipe away any worries about the cost.  Truly remarkable!

This speaker is amazing. My husband has a Boomz audio speaker and this nook speaker blows it out of the box. His only last three hours on a full charge. The nook speaker has lasted well over 10 hours without having to be charged. The sound and bass on this thing is great. Barnes & Noble really did a good job with this.

This speaker is great! I paired it with my HD+ and really love the full, good sound quality. Pairing it was easy with the in package instructions. It'll pair with up to 8 devices so I paired it with my Ipad Mini easily too. So much nicer than a little speaker you can barely hear!

This speaker also syncs to my MP3 and my phone - I've purchased cheaper "Bluetooth" speakers that could not do that...not a cable required! Awesome sound and terrific battery life. Expensive, but well worth the money. Highly recommend.

I bought this today based on other reviews. I am not disappointed! It works great with my nook hd+. The sound is very clear and volume is plenty. If you are considering, then buy it and enjoy. I am listening to a little Dean Martin as I type ! Won't be sorry.

For their size these are pretty darn amazing sounding. For most styles of music that are non base heavy they sound excellent. And even for things with heavier base it sounds way better than any other portable speaker I've owned. The base sound isn't a function so much of the quality of the speakers though as any small speaker will struggle with thumping base which is fine by me as I don't listen to that kind of music. I've pair the BT500 with my Samsung Galaxy Player, my Nook HD+ and my kids iPhone and all have worked great. Switching between devices it's paired to is pretty easy too. In short, these are easy to use and sound awesome for such a small package. Well worth it if you like your music.

Wow, this is terrific!!! Much better than the many small sized bluetooth speakers I have bought over the past year. The sounds is incredible, with fantastic volume and no distortion I can pick up. I know it is small enough to be portable, but if these go on sale again (got mine during the 25% Nook Accessories sale), I will be buying two more to keep one permanently set up in my kitchen, master bath, and art studio.

Absolutely Amazing! This is the best speaker I have ever purchased. The sound quality is beyond my expectations. The clarity and the rich bass that this speaker emits is wonderful. The design is flawless as well. The retractable stand is simply genius and the way the buttons are arranged is very logical. I love the metal grills on the sides and the lights on the top rim. The feel is amazing with the soft touch paint used on it. It is small, has crystal clear sound, and an elegant design. This is what makes this speaker worth buying. I recommend this to anyone who wants a great speaker in their home. Trust me, you will have no regrets to your purchase. Barnes and Noble, you did a fantastic job!

After weeks of research and back and forth, I have just taken the plunge and invested in the Nook Audio Bluetooth Speaker. Now I wonder why I ever hesitated. Simple instructions and connected like a dream. The sound is amazing and fills the room easily. I walked around my house and found no problem in any of the rooms. The speaker is also very attractive and I love the pop out stand for my nook should I need to use it. Great product as usual Barnes and Noble! So glad I bought this. I love my Nook HD+ and this just added to the enjoyment.

The design's great and so is the sound for such a compact speaker! I use it by the bedside and the kitchen, either through the Bluetooth (with iPhone for Internet radio or podcasts) or Aux-In 3.5mm plug (with a small CD player). I gave one to both of my kids each, they love their 'cubes'! If you want a fuller sound, place it in a corner - the bass will be reinforced that way and you'll get a better sense of separation from the L-R reflections off the wall. The original price of $119 was too steep, but I got it when it was down to $69 and with the double % off for B&N members, it was a deal that couldn't be refused!

This product is either monaural or, if stereo, the separation has to be poor. Since the earphone outputs on my NOOK are stereo, why would I want to go mono?

I was pretty excited to hear this speaker.  Heard it in the store and was blown away I wanted a different brand that is really expensive.  Got it home and was very unhappy. The distortion I the bass end was bad. The only way I could stop the rumbling was to turn the volume way down. On both the speaker and my Nook hd+ .  Took it back to the store and thought I would try another one Got the new one home and the same horrible, distorted sound.  Returned the 2nd one as well. Would not recommend this speaker if want to ever turn up the volume and really listen to your movies or videos
