  Mostly works with iPhone

I give it 4 stars not 5 because of the lack of volume control. I KNOW it never claimed to be iPhone compatible but there is no reason it couldnt of had 2 buttons for volume.
The iPhone volume control does nothing when playing through this. But it sounds amazing. Your just stuck with whatever volume you happen to get.
I bought it at 15.99 price, an absolute steal. Better than most cheap amplified speakers.

Works fine with the Nokia 5800. All in all a very good speaker and great to carry around with you.

The volume isnt great but hey this is a portable speaker.....9/10

for Jackie09 and rh1972, this unit does work with the w995 and 5800, along a handset supports bluetooth audio streaming, this WILL work. Good product at a very good price.

  Just to set the rumors straight!! on the mbs 100 and 200

i have been an owner of this mbs 100 from the w850i to the w580i and the nokia 6280 and now the w395, and the speaker has always performed, everyone moans about sound quality, guys you need to remember it depends on the fone and its setting and the mp3 as to the quality.

i have ordered the mbs 200 and shall leave a review wen it arrives.

ive had the speaker for a year and i no everything about it. in sony ericsons, u want to jump straight on the equalizer and manualy do it. becareful with the base as u can damage it or suck the battery dry.
make sur stereo widening of off as its only a single speaker.

Thier is a trick to get this speaker to be loud with the nokia 6280. first, connect the speaker to the handset, while playing a song, turn off the bluetooth speaker and wait for it to say disconnected on the fone.
now turn the volume right down on the handset, and turn the speaker back on. now ur volume will be louder at its quietest seting allowing you to achive a much hiher volume :D might have to do this a couple times on ur first atempt. i garentee you now this speaker will blow your mind then! had 6 hrs out of it at full tilt, mind u it does get hot in summer like this.

as for the nokia, the n95 and high end LG, they for some reason only play at one volume, no idea why, and its not that loud, yet better than standard speaker. i think the speaker has software issues.

If you order one, make sure you post to let me kno how u get on, i am intrested :) oh btw unless its the new ipone software it will not connect to this. and even then its no better than the n95, stil a bit quiet.

  Great value for money

All in all, far exceeded expectations. Bought it to replace my nigh on 15 year old Sony travel speakers. A major plus was the impressive bass, far superior to my tinny 15 year old speakers. And the little beauty still streams the music whilst charging which was something I was very happy about. Perfect for a hotel room or park etc. As for connectivity issues, the only time I had an issue was if my Bluetooth headset was still switched on, in other words, make sure the Sony speaker is the only Bluetooth device switched on at any one time,. it resolved my issue. (i.e I have both the BT speaker & BT headphones paired with my phone)

  don't bother

At first i was thrilled with the sony ericsson mbs-100 speaker. It was loud and the sound quality was exceptional. But after 4 months of using this prduct about once every day for a short while the quality of this speaker dropped dramaticaly.
After the first month i noticed that the sound quality wasn't as good as when i first bought it and the loudness had decreased but i didn't take anynotice.

Now my this speaker is extremely faulty and unreliable. Some of the reasons for this are:
The sound quality is terrible when the speaker gets louder, in fact when it is playing at full blast all of the songs are shockly bad.
The speaker only plays at about half the volume compared to when i first bought it.
The speaker constantley turns itself off, i can't even listen to it for 20 mins without it turning off.
Sometimes it disconnects from my phone.

I know that it is the speaker which is the problem aswel because the effects happen when i use my friends phones.
Other people that i know that have had this for about 6 months aswel also say that they often encounter problems with the device.

If you were intrested in buying this i would make sure that there is some kind of gurantee or warranty.

Got this a couple of days ago and it's seized to amaze me since, the power of it, the quality of it and the size of it, alot smaller than i expected but alot louder than i would of ever imagined. Absolutly amazing, a must buy for use with any compatible sony ericsson phone.
