Rocketfish Mobile SPX15 review: Rocketfish Mobile SPX15

Around back you'll find a USB port for charging and an auxiliary input for connecting non-Bluetooth audio devices. Sarah Tew/CNET

Unsurprisingly, where this speaker sounded best was on acoustic material and lighter fare. For example, the live acoustic version of Adele's "Turning Tables" sounded just fine and made me think I was listening to a larger speaker. I also found that it worked well enough as a speakerphone, though you'll want to keep the unit within a few feet of you when talking into the integrated microphone (Bluetooth speakers generally allow you to stream sound from a device up to 30 feet away).

The truth is I'd have no problem recommending this Rocketfish if it were cheaper. I understand there are certain costs involved when you include a lithium ion rechargeable battery (these types of batteries are fairly expensive), but the SPX15 just doesn't feel like it should cost $99 ($69 or $79 max would make it a more attractive buy).

To be clear, these is a decent enough product, but there are currently better options at $100 -- or even slightly less .
