Surprise Find....Surprisingly Good! :O)
on 2 August 2013
Hi Fellow Amazonian,
Firstly, you can find these cheaper on Ebay and the manufacturers website, but I still bought these here on Amazon....I really am a rebel without a cause!!! ;O)
I've owned 4 X-Mini's (Sold), 2 Sweet BT Speakers (Sent Back - Faulty) and still own the rather good Kitsound Boom Bar.
Firstly the volume, this is louder then all three of the aforementioned speakers and the quality is very impressive. The magic hole at the back of the unit, called the Bass Port certainly does the job, and if you look at the spec of all the speakers, it's high volume level is confirmed.
As mentioned this reaches higher volumes and has better sound distribution with little or no distortion then any of the other aforementioned speakers could too.
I was looking for something loud, not too big, with bluetooth and not too expensive and this certainly fits the bill.
Build quality is very good but then again, I've only had it a day. It is a bit plasticky in my opinion and prefer the tactile quality on the Boombar. But all in all, a well manufactered bit of kit.
The device is light and has a good form factor. I, like many of my fellow reviewers wish that the item came in a protective case!!! Been looking on amazon for something decent and inexpensive but as yet have not found anything.......
Working the device is very simple - press on/off button to turn on, press play/pause button for a 3 to 4 seconds to begin pairing mode, wait for light to flash blue and green and voila!!!! begin paring procedure. The unit also has an AUX IN for wired connectivity, but this is pretty standard on wireless speakers in this day and age.
I really like the touch sensitive buttons to control the unit. I have used the unit with BB Playbook and Optimus 4x HD and both devices sound great through the speaker. With the use of a decent music player with eq the sound is very much to my liking :)
I have Poweramp on the Optimus and Neutron on the Playbook and am really happy with both.
Well, thats it for know. This is a great device and with the sudden appearence of so many BT speakers that appear to be so similar, it is great to see something on the market which stands out from the crowd and works so effectively. Well done Azatom.....the UFO has landed.
Hope this review helps and happy shopping :)
