California Prop 65 Warning

What is Proposition 65?

Proposition 65 is a California law that applies to companies selling products in California. Proposition 65 requires warnings if a product contains any listed chemical present above very low levels. Proposition 65’s warning standards are among the most stringent in the world. Proposition 65 is not a product safety law, but rather a "right-to-know" law. Businesses are required to provide warnings to comply with Proposition 65.

There are over 800 chemicals on the Proposition 65 list, which is administered by California's Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA), a part of the California Environmental Protection Agency. The list includes naturally occurring and man-made chemicals. Proposition 65 warnings can be seen for a wide variety of everyday consumer products, including electronic equipment, and warnings can be seen posted throughout California in a variety of establishments such as buildings, hotels, restaurants, coffee shops, and stores.

Why do you see the warning on our packaging and website?

The warning is part of our ongoing effort to comply with the California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986 (known as "Proposition 65").

    Well – the title says it all. Yes – my 13, 16 and 20-year-old kids are fighting over who gets to use this speaker at home and on the lake. Their initial impression was “WOW” right when it came out of the box and even before we turned it on! Once paired, they were impressed with the sound and also the loudness! I think I’ll bribe them with “speaker time” based on the chores they do!

    OK – for the details. First know this thing is Big. I attached a picture of it sitting on my son’s dresser. It takes up the entire top. Second, know that the battery life seems great thus far and I don’t think there will be a problem with reaching the posted 8-10 hour play time at all. Could probably even be more if the LED buttons on top shut off after 5 min or something.

    Water resistance is a great feature – as the kids plan to use it on the boat over the July 4th holiday. It has a protective metal mesh screen all around – but it’s pretty thin and I can see that easily denting. We’ll see how it fares after a busy week at the cabin.

    Pairing was a snap – nobody should have any problems there at all. The charger that comes with also has 4 international plug adapters – a good feature depending on your use scenario. However, I don’t see you hauling this overseas with you as it is so big.

    One thing I wish is that there was WiFi capability as well as Bluetooth, it would make the experience that much better. Also, a tone or equalizer would be awesome too – so you can adjust the bass more, etc.

    Overall – very impressed. I gave it four stars do to the thin metal grille that will likely dent, no WiFi and no way to adjust tone. After the week of cabin use, I’ll see how it fares and might even get another! I would definitely recommend this to a friend – solely based on how much my kids are excited about it!

    I’ve had My Rock for about a year now and I enjoy the way the music sounds on it. It’s loud and projects clear sound. I just bought a 2017 Nissan Sentra at the lowest price point and the sound system sucks really bad. I put my Nyne Rock in the back seat and just bump my tunes from my iPhone, and road life is tolerable again. You can’t go wrong with this. If you enjoy music on the go, this is worth the money. Especially if you get it at Costco for $189.99 like I did. Lucky!

    (Read all before commenting) I like it except that if you don’t keep sending music to it, it “goes to sleep” and I have to get up and “wake it up”. I understand conservation of battery power, but it drops the bluetooth connection as well! Just kill the battery power to the amplifier section dudes until I turn the whole thing off! I sent them an email about this problem with the NYNE Bass I purchased previously – they didn’t respond.

    This thing was returned promptly! Very awful audio quality and the return was a nightmare.I’m not to sure if the unit I had was defective or if that was the norm; however, due the lengthy waste of my time the return process took, I wasn’t able to justify purchasing another unit for a proper review.

    I really, really wanted to like this speaker. There are very few speakers out there that are this size and power. Most are simply not loud enough to use in an outdoor party setting. The sound is very bass heavy, but outdoors that actually sounds good. These do not sound near as well indoors though. Really boomy and not all that crisp. The first speaker I got died in less than a couple weeks. It just stopped charging and would not stay on for more than a few seconds at a time before shutting down. I returned it for another and after charging to 100% (and playing loud) I found I only got about an hour of play before it shut off due to battery depletion. Nowhere near the 10 hour battery life they claim and a dealbreaker for me as I routinely need a speaker that will play for 2-3 hours at minumum. Too bad, as the sound was perfect for my needs. If only the battery was a bit more robust. Giving it 3 stars for the sound, but taking away 2 for the battery and overall reliability. Maybe this thing isn’t ready for prime time yet.

    So far so good. I bought this for work, which my shop gets fairly loud with welders and grinders going at all times. The shop is a big open area, and still can hear the music within 20ft or so. Any further and the sound is simply washed out by all the noises of a production shop. I bought this because of the rugged built it has. The Bluetooth connection is nice. No problems, but have noticed that the battery will last up to 3 hours, I don’t mind as it is always plugged in anyways at work. Really like how it has a line out to connect any other speaker.Overall, great speaker, good sound, rugged built and only negative is the battery life.

    I was happy to get to try out one of these new NYNE Rock bluetooth speakers. This thing is huge – boom-box sized. I’ve been demoing it for about 30 days now. Using it around my house (both inside and out), and I’ve taken it to work and over to some of my neighbors house. Everybody that’s seen it has been impressed.This is a good looking speaker. It has sort of a rubberized texture on the surface that makes it look like it should be sitting next to a swimming pool. The speakers are just visible behind the heavy mesh. Something that I found interesting, the control buttons are on a bar on top of the speaker running the length. The buttons are huge (and they light up). What was interesting is most of the people I was showing this off to are my age (mid-fifties) and they all loved how large the buttons are (apparently they really don’t like dealing with tiny buttons). Sure you can control this speaker with whatever source device that you’ve got paired to it – but I think the big selling point is going to be these buttons.The speaker sounds good – but IMO, it doesn’t get as loud as I would expect it to (given it’s look). I took this outside in my back yard and cranked it up, then walked to different parts of the yard to see the range of it. I’ve got a pretty standard yard (for the area) – about quarter acre and at the farthest point the speaker wasn’t all that loud (I doubt any of my neighbors would complain). Still, closer up it puts out a decent amount of sound. As I mentioned I took this speaker to one of my neighbors to use for a little outdoor barbecue get-together and it worked fine. And lasted the whole night. The battery on this is impressive – I’ve let it run for a whole day and the cellphone I was using battery died before the one on the speaker did.The speaker is large – 21”x9”x6”. There are two posts on either side of the lower front part of the speaker – that look like you could use to attach a shoulder strap to carry the speaker with. The back of the speaker features a weatherproof hatch that covers the connection points – line in and line out, a standard USB port for charging, power in, five LED power indicator w/test button. Charging the battery can take some time – more than hour / less than two hours.Included in the box – speaker, power transformer (with international adapters), and an 1/8” stereo audio patch cord. Plus, the instruction packet.I really liked this speaker and think I’ve might have convinced a few of my friends to maybe get one.

    I wasn’t happy with the sound quality. Too much mid range. Lacking on bass and especially treble. Just sounded kind of muddy. But maybe I’m just too fussy. Too bad I love the look and design.

    I have not purchased this NYNE ROCK RUGGED 21″ BLUETOOTH SPEAKER yet BUT , I do have a few bluetooth speakers including the NYNE Bass Portable white speaker .I currently have these Bluetooth Speakers : Big Jawbone Jambox , Bose Soundlink III , Beats Pill XL , UE Megaboom , and I can honestly say my NYNE Bass Portable White Speaker BEATS them all in sound quality and the Bass , The sound is super clear and crisp with Hard Hitting BASS. Yes the BASS Rocks on this speaker and anything you throw at it at full volume this speaker will sound GR8 !Again I do NOT have the NYNE ROCK RUGGED 21″ To provide you with a more detailed and honest written review but , My older NYNE BASS PORTABLE sounds great so I can only imagine what the newer NYNE ROCK RUGGED 21″ sounds like .I , Like many people these days , prefer a Hard Hitting Bass Bluetooth Speaker that also sounds clear and crisp.

    My first impression I got was WOW that’s big.. Never realizing when I bought it that it would be that big but I soon discovered that size in this aspect does matter a lot. This thing pumps out some serious low end. Its crisp and just what I like. If you are looking for something to throw in a backpack and head to the beach and still have space in your medium size backpack for a towel a change of clothes and sunscreen then this is NOT the speaker for you . Maybe you are better off buying the Nyne bass which is great as well. But if you are looking for a speaker to throw across your shoulder like a good old boom box or all you care about is the thump of that bass look no further. This thing will truly amaze you. It even has a line out (something that has been lacking in the Bluetooth speaker segment) so that you can connect two of these things CRAZY.. The Nyne rock is big but light and truly the best speaker I have owned till date. As far as looks it helps that it looks like something straight out of Star Wars. The funky design and the rugged material it is made from really compliment the speaker. All the buttons light up which make it easy to find in the dark and it also comes with universal adapters for the charger. The Nyne has a battery indicator at the back with the Nyne bass lacks and also all the essential ports such as aux, line out , USB to charge your phone etc from and the charging pin have a flap to close to protect it from the elements especially when your are out an about. Well worth the money I spent on it.

    As an owner of a Nyne Bass for just over a year I was excited to buy the new Nyne Rock. My Nyne Bass lasted just over a year before the subwoofer blew. Perhaps leaving it outside overnight under the gazebo allowed the morning dew to saturate the speaker. I was able to take it apart by removing the screen and patch the separation with Guerilla Glue though. Not perfect, but functional. So…The Nyne Rock. Honestly I was very disappointed in the overall sound quality. Is it loud? Yes. Is it bass-y? Yes. Does it have the warmth and vibrance of the Nyne Bass? No. At low volumes it sounds like a cheap speaker. It lacks the clarity and vibrance of their Bass-line. I’m returning it as we speak. Perhaps the waterproof design lends to overall sound dampening. It’s not a bad speaker. But as a Nyne Bass owner I expected more from them. Sorry kids, but I’d pass on this one.

    I had such high hopes for this device. After having it on pre order for what felt like an eternity, my Nyne Rock finally arrived. The bottom line with this thing is that it is just not ready for prime time. The LED lighting on the buttons was flaky and the build quality felt very Chinese eBay, and the sound left a lot to be desired. The sub-woofer has TERRIBLE port noise, and that is when you can hear the port noise over the buzzing of the feet on any hard surface. I had to put the Rock on a towel just to stop the feet from buzzing. But then I still had the port noise. It was just one big hot mess. Initial pair to my 6+ was easy enough, but then subsequent re-connections proved to be challenging, I had to forget and repair several times. This was supposed to replace my aging Big Jambox, but there is no way that is going to happen. The Big Jambox makes far better sound from a far smaller footprint. The search continues.If you want the most lopsided sound you could ever have, in a very unwieldy size, with Chinese eBay build quality. Go with this Rock by Nyne. What a disappointment, waited over a year for this thing.

    Overall I found this speaker to be quite fantastic and well worth the price. Yes, this is an outdoor speaker so you will notice a huge difference when playing it indoors compared to outdoors. This speaker performs best when the volume is not too high. For indoor use I would suggest an equalizer that you can customize rather than one with preset options.

    I really wanted to like this speaker, but it didn’t work for me. I understand it’s for outside because it’s water and dust resistant. It has a great look and is very durable. But for the performance of sound quality just isn’t there. Taking it to just 70% of the volume starts to distort and the bass fades away. If you walk more than 15 feet away with your phone in your pocket the music starts to cut out. And the volume control isn’t always accurate. I turned the volume down, but it just stayed in the same place (which was at about 70%) When it was at 0% the volume was off, but turning it back up to just 1% went back to 70% ?. I guess it’s defective and for that I’ll be returning it. What a disappointment because this product looks like it could have been a success, but the focus was only in the outside, no focus in the inside.

    I got one for $169. Good sound but much better if you use the Onkyo music app with the equalizer. The mid range is way too strong, the equalizer can balance it out with the lows and highs. It is definitely loud! Usb charger is handy. Handle feels off when gripping onto it. A definite recommend!

    Big disappointment, I was expecting a working device that could give out great sound however after depleting the battery and putting it on charge, the speaker becomes unresponsive and shows no signs of power. After waiting nearly a year patiently for a response from email after requesting a replacement, I still have no reply.
