Used for busking
TomsAbelis, 24.05.2019
I am using it with woodwind instrument and backing tracks. Sound is very good and loud for size. good features and smallest top line speaker in market.

I am not happy, that battery life is only up to 6 hours when using backing tracks and in xlr input on 75 % loudness. 15 hours probably when you use only backing tracks on low volume.

Its little buzzy when it comes very loud, probably because its light.

With bluetooth sound is louder, and if you use cable for ipod, than you heard some little noise and it not that loud.

But overall its good speaker for price and features. If 6 hours is ok for you than I recommend it.

OK but I sent back
gizdolok, 27.04.2020
I ordered Mackie FreePlay Live because of its size and battery life.

Power is specified to be 150W, so expected to have no problem there, however, this is only through the XLR connectors, as when I plugged the guitar directly I got disappointed that I had to go near the speaker to be sure there was any sound coming out of it.

The problem with the battery is that, apparently is gets discharged when device is turned off. When used in the field, one needs to make sure to charge it right before, and not a few days before, otherwise electricity will be needed.

Then I got to know the existence of Bose S1 Pro System. Even thought it is specified to have a battery of less 4 hours (11hours vs 15 hours on the FreePlay) its input gain on the jack is up to 42dB as the Mackie has 0dB on the jack and 20dB on the XLR. This explains the lack of power when connecting a TR jack directly.

After reflecting many hours whether I should order a second unit to pair along, at the end I decided to sent it back and replace for a Bose S1 instead.

I still wouldn't totally despise this product, it's just that expectations from Mackie manufacturer were a lot higher.

Perfect PA
@michalos90, 15.01.2019
I didnt expect so much power and HQ sound !
Use this small yet effective PA to play on the weddings, clubs, and also street music performances (guitar/piano + singing).

Power and light weight, a musician's dream-Mackie FreePlay Life. Virgo all that is written.
Наталия, 11.12.2019
Mackie for a long time I love and use since 2008. Recently I bought Mackie FreePlay Life and from the first sound I realized that this is what I need for rehearsals and private performances. There's also Bang & Olufsen Beolit 12 Subwoofer Wi-Fi Gray, it's more household use, and Mackie FreePlay Life is for professionals, musicians and a lot more powerful. I will order 2nd Mackie FreePlay Live.
