Very impressed by these diminutive speakers. Ideal to leave in a bedroom or office to use with a portable device such as phone or laptop with Bluetooth. Two seperate speakers so you get a good stereo spread. Could do with an extension link cable so that you could put one each side of a double bed though. Pairing is easy. Just tell your device to look for new connections (comes up as Jembe) and enter the passkey 0000- takes about 10 seconds to link up and fade up without a click. Once that's done they link up automatically even after powerdown. Range with my Palm Tro is around 20ft with a brick wall inbetween.
I'm a professional sound man so I'm a bit pernickity when it comes to sound. Sound of the Jembes is great for such small enclosures. Not hifi, but well balanced. They lack the sparkle of hifi speakers but have a reasonably extended smooth treble which is missing from many single driver systems and also a good kick in the bass which extends to lower frequencies than you'd expect. They're not loud enough for a party or a factory floor, but more than adaquate for a bedroom or office. The sound breaks up a bit when you whack the volume up to max but at least that means that they're sensivive enough for those occasional Youtube or Vimeo videos with low sound volume.
So impressed I'm going to buy another pair.
