While it may be a so-so quality boombox, the giant logo just kills it for me. I'm not shelling out 400 clams to advertize for a mediocre manufacturer. I'll stick with my Logitech Squeezebox Boom and/or it's future replacement.

If it's anything like the Beat's headphones then no thank you. Boomy uncontrolled bass and piercing treble....*shudder*

This is just my opinion, so if you like the sound then by all means knock yourself out.

And the price is outrageous.

...really? The headphones weren't enough? If this is anything like the headphones, it's going to sound like crap, unless you like your music for bass alone. Pass.
