4.0 out of 5 stars Powerful for size, and bassy 30 Nov. 2012
Colour Name:Black|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Despite the "for Kindle Fire and Kindle Fire HD" mentioned in the product description, this is just a generic small powered speaker, which connects to any device with a 3.5mm headphone jack - so that's pretty much every media player, phone or tablet out there.

First impressions of this product were good - it's fairly heavy, and feels well made and solid. The weight of it helps stop it bouncing around to the bassline if turned up loud, and if placed on a suitable surface (a table or similar), it seems the surface helps it to produce louder bass, too (naturally - if it's heavy enough to stay put, some of the vibrations will transfer to the surface it's on).

Sound quality is impressive, with decent volume from such a small unit. I think I'd have been more blown away by it if I didn't already have an X Mini capsule speaker (a similar item) to which I'd naturally compare it. However, if you haven't played with these kind of speakers yet, the sound level achievable from such a small unit is quite remarkable.

Compared to the X-Mini device, the maximum volume attainable without major distortion is similar, but this product seems slightly bass-heavy than the X-Mini (perhaps a little *too* much with some songs, in fact). As long as the player you're connecting it to has tone controls/equalizer, you can compensate for that happily. The previously-mentioned weight of this unit helps it produce some bass without bouncing around excessively; the lighter X-Mini unit can often be observed to bounce along the surface it's on, moving a little with each beat!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good idea - not quite there yet 17 Jun. 2013
Colour Name:Purple|Verified Purchase
Sound improved the Kindle's tinny sound a lot. For music it is bassy and not enough top - the settings probably reflect dominant music tastes I suppose. The main prob. is that the jack is not long enough to go into the Kindle through the cover - you have to remove it. Apart from that - great for travel.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ideal for hotel rooms 28 Aug. 2014
By Alex
Colour Name:Pink|Verified Purchase
I spend a fair amount of time away from home and want something portable so I can listen to music or audiobooks while cooling my heels in a hotel. This fits the bill.

It's very small, but surprisingly capable. It's ideal for small quiet rooms such as hotel rooms, but would struggle outdoors or in a noisy environment. Audio fidelity is hardly high-end, but that's not the purpose here. It's perfectly serviceable and does the job.

The speaker does not have its own volume control; the volume is controlled by the source device, with the speaker amplifying whatever it receives. If the source signal is too high the sound will distort; the built-in amplifier is actually a bit too strong for the speaker. The ideal volume "sweet spot" will likely vary from source device to source device, so some experimentation will be called for.

The battery life is fine for me; the most I've ever used it for at any one time is 2 hours, and it still didn't need recharging. I don't know how well it would fare for longer use.

Finally, the colour is delightfully garish, so I'm unlikely to lose it among the myriad black devices which litter my life.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mini speaker for my kindle fire 10 May 2013
By P.A.B.
Colour Name:Pink
This portable speaker is ideal for traveling or somewhere that there is no electric supply eg beach, garden. The charge lasts for over 5 hrs and the sound is better than you would expect from such a small speaker, and can be charged from your kindle wall/electric charger. One thing I would point out, do not try to open it as far as it shows on the instructions, the speaker only opens slightly. I bought this for my kindle fire and I'm very pleased with it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Batteries not included alas 19 Dec. 2012
By Amazon Customer VINE VOICE
Colour Name:Black|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is a solid sturdy piece of kit. Very well made, it sits solidly on the desk and produces (to my ears anyway) an excellent level of sound from laptop and MP3 player.

There are only two drawbacks:

1: The battery life is poor, needed charging on a daily basis.

2: The lead. The USB lead is tiny, meaning that if you want to charge it direct from an adaptor plugged into the wall, you have to put the speaker on the floor.

As a speaker though it is excellent, the negative points taking a star from the 5 it would get for sound alone.
