How did you come up with the idea for this product?
At Ninety7 we are always striving to elevate products and brands through design and innovation. The Amazon’s Echo Dot is a phenomenal device for so many people but had limitations in terms of look, sound and mobility which is what inspired us to design our product. VAUX elevates the Dot from gadget to indispensable home companion and allows for a different look than what is currently available in the Amazon family.
What makes your product special?
VAUX is the first battery-powered speaker designed to hold the Amazon Echo Dot. Our design integrates the Amazon Dot so seamlessly that you want to buy a Dot and our product together. We are an obvious great gift for anyone that has already bought a Dot, but we are also a great value as a bundle.
What has been the best part of your startup experience?
At Ninety7, the best part is making great product and not compromising on quality. We get to work closely with incredible people that know how to execute and get things done. At the end of the day, we just want to make things better and have a great time doing it. That quality shows in our product and service we offer.

Look Ma, no cords!!
This is such a clever gadget! I love my Dots, but music just sounds sad over her little speaker. This speaker has the quality of a good bluetooth speaker, plus a battery so Alexa can roam free! Setup couldn't be simpler - drop the Dot into the top and plug it in, that's it! The speaker connects to the Dot via the 3.5mm aux output so no fussing with Bluetooth or wifi, and you get full quality audio rather than compressed over Bluetooth. The battery connects to the Dot's micro-USB port, and the speaker unit has a separate micro-USB port for charging. You use the cord you were already using to power your Dot. The sound quality is good. Not Bose-quality, the bass is definitely lacking, but substantially better than the built I speakers. It's equivalent quality (maybe a little better) than the JBL GO I generally pair to my Dot. It's also LOUD, so definitely turn your Dot down to sound level 3-4 before you plug it in, or you'll get a sonic barrage. That could be a down side, as the only volume control is via Alexa - the speaker volume isn't controllable separately. If you're looking for the softer end of the spectrum you may want to unplug the speaker for that purpose. One interesting thing I noted was that with the speaker plugged in, Alexa doesn't stop playing music to answer questions or respond to her name. She decreases the volume slightly, but the music is still clearly audible. Overall, I'm thrilled with this purchase. It makes my Dot so much more functional! I feel like I scored an Echo at half the price!!

Quality materials that look very nice. Plays well with good sound
By Robert Patterson
Quality materials that look very nice. Plays well with good sound. Haven't tried it in the battery mode yet. My complaint is that I can't lower the sound enough to use it for playing environmental sound for nighttime sleeping. I have to take the Dot out of the speaker to get the sound low enough for listening comfort.

Better than expected!
I bought this without the intention of using the built in battery. I bought it because it doesn't take up any more room than the echo itself does and it gives a very nice sound boost. I would say it comes very close in sound quality to the tall echo. It also looks very nice and seems well made. If I had one complaint, it's that the lowest volume setting is still pretty loud. When It should be a 1 it's more like a 3. To me, it's not enough to deduct a star.
