The Anker feels well made and should last a while. You're never going to get good bass out of a speaker this small but the sound quality at low to medium volume levels is pretty decent. It does really suffer when you go to louder volumes, the treble gets really harsh and tinny and overpowers the bass which just gets lost as it can't match. This is a problem with a lot of cheap small speakers and where the minirigs really shine. They can go loud and still give good bass as they have a larger driver in them.
So it wont match the sound quality of a 150 quid speaker but once you have realistic expectations for a speaker only costing 25 you should be happy. I'm using it when I'm doing DIY as I don't mind it getting covered in dust and dirt and the fact that it's waterproof is an added bonus
