Function

Before using the speaker you’ll need to charge it.  You do so using the Micro USB cable that comes with it.  You can recharge the speaker either via an available USB port on your computer or with a USB wall adapter.  Either way once fully charged you’ll be able to get about 10 hours of usage.

In order to use the speaker wirelessly with your Bluetooth enabled device you’ll need to pair the two together.  In my case I used the iPhone 5.  Head to the settings app, then Bluetooth.  With the speaker on press and hold the play/pause button until the speaker informs you it’s in pairing mode with a voice prompt.   The SHARKK speaker supports multipoint connecting so that you’re able to pair up two devices at the same time.

There are five buttons along the bottom of the speaker.  These control audio playback.  The play/pause button will begin audio playback from whichever audio device is connected to it and pause it from playing as well.  The fast forward  button skips ahead to the next song while the rewind button goes back to the previous.  There’s also a volume up and down for raising the audio level of music playback.

You can also use the speaker to make calls as well.  Initiate the call via your phone’s dialer and it’ll automatically get routed through the speaker.  A built in microphone allows you to speak and hear directly to the speaker without having your phone right next to you.  The speaker also supports voice dialing.  By pressing and holding either the volume up or volume down for 2 seconds you’ll initiate the voice dialing function.  To answer a call directly on the speaker simply press the play/pause button.  During a call doing the same will end it.
