Very high quality unit with strong sound and great functionality.
This item arrived in a heat shrink plastic sealed retail box, that was clearly for a very high quality product – I’ve seen similar boxes from high end smartphone manufacturers. Removing the lid shows a nicely wrapped speaker unit, with the ancillaries hidden under a bright white cardboard flap. The box contained the speaker unit itself, a charging cable, a 3.5mm jack cable, a basic instruction manual and an advertising leaflet for the manufacturer.
The unit is pleasingly heavy, but light enough to be portable. The metal grille wrapped around the device again shows quality, as does the non-grille areas, which are all a matte, rubber feeling plastic. The buttons have been well designed, and the status light is small and unobtrusive. The cable and micro-SD card ports are nicely located at the bottom rear of the product. It’s great for a speaker system like this to be so versatile. Normally you get bluetooth, sometimes you’ll also get a 3.5mm port (including the 3.5mm cable is a nice touch too), but very rarely do you get both those *and* a micro-SD card slot, to play directly from the card. The solid base has a very high friction rubberised bottom, so it’s not going to be sliding around even the shiniest of desks.
Pairing via bluetooth to an iPhone takes seconds, and the sound is loud and clear. The unit also doubles up as a phone hands-free kit, and the sound at each side is great – I even had a brief conversation with Siri through it, which isn’t easy at the best of times.
This unit is a very high quality, well made piece of kit, that’s had much design effort put into it. The buttons have clear raised icons, and most are multi-functional, eg. the “next track” buttons act as volume buttons too.
For anybody in the market for a small, portable speaker unit, I’d say look no further than this, I can highly recommend it.
