Set your tunes free with The Block Mini!

This mini portable speaker connects wirelessly by Bluetooth to your tablet, laptop, iPhone, Android or Blackberry and plays all your music with an impressive sound quality. Its ultra small, and compact design means it fits easily in a handbag or backpack, so you’ll always be ready to play your music.


Bluetooth technology for wireless music streaming
  • Wirelessly stream all your favourite music to the speaker. A Bluetooth 3.0 connection makes playing and controlling music easy. Power and volume are controlled using neatly designed buttons on top of The Block Mini, your Bluetooth device does the rest – streaming stations, selecting tracks, managing playlists and much, much more. No remote required! As an added bonus, once it has been paired with your Smartphone, you can use The Block Mini to make hands free telephone calls at the touch of a button using the built in microphone. A wireless range of 8m means the speaker can stay in one place and you can move around and enjoy the party – whilst staying in control of the playlist!
  • Pairing your Bluetooth device with The Block Mini is easy. Simply set Bluetooth on your device to “On”, it will search for speakers within range and find the “Amethyst M3” Select this device and The Block Mini will speak to you and say “Pairing Complete”. You will then be ready to go, and will only need to pair each device once as they will remember each other afterwards. You can also connect non Bluetooth devices via the 3.5mm Stereo Aux input port.
  • As soon as you switch on The Block Mini it will default to the Bluetooth function and search for the last device connected to it. Once found, it will connect to that device automatically and can start playing once more.
A Distinctive and Stylish Design that Stands Out
A unique design with powerful sound performance

The Block Mini a distinctive accessory thanks to a stylish and colourful design, and with a rechargeable battery, your music can follow you wherever you go. Take it with you as you travel or keep it in the house, ready to move from room to room or into the garden. Small and lightweight, it is portable enough to take anywhere and a 5 hour battery life means you’ve got plenty of time to relax and enjoy the sound. The built in rechargeable battery takes just 3-6 hours to completely charge and you can keep listening while its charging using the included Power Adapter.

Don’t let the compact size fool you. This speaker may be small but its powerful! The Block Mini has two amplified 2W speakers, which deliver rich and powerful 2.0 channel sound with natural clarity. You can listen to any genre of music, skipping from hip hop to rock or pop and then to mellow chill out sounds, and hear every detail.

Take the Mini Block with you where ever you go
Smart power control with the freedom to play music wherever you are

The Block Mini has been designed to manage its power use automatically. Power and charging LED indicators advise when the unit is on and charging. When using the built in battery, The Block Mini will monitor the available power. When it becomes too low, the unit will decrease volume to preserve sound quality and extend playing time. When the battery runs out entirely, the LED light will flash and the unit will switch itself to standby mode.

The Block Mini is comfortable playing your music at home, while you’re alone or having a party and sharing the fun. It is so compact and light that it is also perfect for taking on your travels, just in the garden or on holiday and all the way to the beach: The Block Mini is ready, all you have to do is add the music.

Colour Name: Blue Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
At first glance, the Amethyst looks like a giant Lego brick. It might look too casual and/or out of place with your home entertainment system, but then the Amethyst is designed as a portable speaker and fortunately it does its job very well.

You can connect gadgets such as laptops, MP3 players, and tablets either using the supplied cable or via Bluetooth. I had no problems connecting it to all my gadgets. The sound is fantastic, probably the best I have experienced from a portable speaker. It enhances viewing movies and listening to music while on the go by providing crisp and satisfying audio that is loud enough to satisfy even the hardets to please.

A word of warning: the Amethyst gets confused when more than one Bluetooth connection is in range. Once, Bluetooth was activated on my laptop and mobile phone at the same time and the Amethyst got confused as it tried to connect to both.

Yes, the Amethyst looks and feels like a toy (even the big function buttons remind me of the Fisher Price toys I had as a child!) but it performs brilliantly. It is not the smallest of portable speakers but it is still small enough to carry around in your rucksack or laptop case. I would have given this produce five stars if not for the fact that the built-in battery seems to have died after only a week. I now need to connect the Amethyst to a socket when I need to use it which is a great shame.

Colour Name: Blue Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I have two other portable speakers (one bluetooth, one not) and this one easily has the best sound of the three, both is quality and volume. Those are definitely good things, but then really it's not surprising given that thus Amethyst speaker is 3-4 times the size of the others I have.

The bluetooth works very well (even if I do keep getting a fright when it speaks) and I've had no random disconnections, which is something I can't say about the other bluetooth speaker I own.

As for being 'portable', well that's down the user's own definition. Technically, yes, it is portable, but unlike the other two speakers I own I can't just stick this in my pocket; a holdall or case, sure, but not a pocket or purse.

Then there's the design; like a huge lego brick... honestly, it's truly awful, but thankfully that's not what matters to me with a speaker. Overall, though, a pretty good speaker.

Colour Name: Blue Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
The unit I received is a matt grey finish. The look of the unit will probably divide opinion. It does resemble a large rubber lego brick. I suspect kids would love it for their bedrooms but it might look a bit odd in the lounge.

Regarding functionality, the unit it primarily designed for Bluetooth playback, but also has a standard AUX in jack at the back, along with the on/off switch and the power cable input. There are some buttons for volume/input switch and "phone" on the top, being some of the lego type raised circles/squares.

My Iphone connected instantly and remains connected now whenever the unit is on. The volume level goes reasonably high (higher than you would use for comfortable background music) while retaining composure, and only starts to break up a bit at the highest end, so it's not really suitable for a party speaker (but how many £60 portable speaker sets would be?).

I have only charged the unit once and have now primarily started using it in the car, which for me is perfect as my car stereo has no bluetooth/aux in. I had been using a small FM transmitter to the radio, which was patchy at best - this is fantastic in comparison. I have probably run it for at least 6 hours so far with no sign of battery loss, so I'm guessing it's probably good for at least 10 hours. And it has never dropped the bluetooth connection.

I have yet to use the phone function, but again in the car this would be a good benefit.

Overall for the cost I think this is a very good proposition and with only the looks which won't be to all tastes and a bit of lost composure at the high end robbing it of 5 stars.

Colour Name: Black Verified Purchase
I bought this as I couldn't afford a Jambox, and it is a great substitute for it. Great sound and connectivity - I've used it with iPhone's and Samsung's. The only downside is that it is rather heavier than I would have liked (and the Jambox), you can definitely feel its weight when you slip it into your handbag. Good product though.

Excellent blue tooth speaker which looks great - the block like design is very cool and sounds great - absolutely no problems with connection or sound.

My only criticism is that it's just too heavy! I like my portable items to be truly portable and this is much heavier than I'd like. Still a great product for the price though.

5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Jack Percival TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 24 Sept. 2013
Colour Name: Blue Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
There was little question in my mind from the moment I saw this unit that it was trying to emulate the success of my favourite Bluetooth speaker range - the Jawbone Jambox - but at a more reasonable price. For me, the Jambox excelled due to great design, fantastic sound and excellent functionality - would this one be the same?

First, the design - it's a good bright colour and a visually interesting one with the Lego style studs on the top also doubling as the buttons for functions and also controlling the music being played. The plastic nature of the product actually fits well with the design although the back looks a little bit tacky with a rocker switch, extra ports and some LEDs that you feel could have been put on the side to keep a full clean look. The size and weight mean that it's a good portable speaker and a fantastic thing to have when you're out with friends.

Next, the sound - here the speaker really packs a punch despite its size even when running on battery. While distortion quite quickly comes in with volume increases and the fact it lacks a little clarity I was surprised with the volume and quality from something this size. It's not as good as the Jambox, especially when it comes to the speakerphone mic, but for the price I was pleasantly surprised.

Finally, the functionality. Any speaker with a built in battery is always a winner for me and this one lasts a reasonable length of time on a single charge. Pairing with a phone is relatively easy and the speakerphone component seems a nice edition but not as well executed in terms of sound quality as it could be. The Bluetooth range was however less than some other speakers I have tried.

Overall, I was happy with what turned out to be quite a reasonable speaker - especially at this price point.
