4.0 out of 5 stars Good sound, trouble connecting though, 21 April 2014
This review is from: Divoom ONBEAT-200 Bluetooth Speaker - Black (Wireless Phone Accessory)
I've had this for nearly six months and I must say it's pretty good. It obviously doesn't cut the mustard sound-wise with the big boys like Bose, Jabra or any other premium speaker which costs lots more but having said that, the important thing from a speaker is the noise it produces. This model has a hefty bass when required, good mid-range quality and fills the room it's placed in without needing full volume. I have noticed the positioning of the speaker does have an impact on this though. Due to it's design, the Onbeat 200 needs to be facing you to get best results. This probably won't be a problem for most of us but worth mentioning.
The built-in battery lasts very well, approximately 9 hours use from a 1.5 hour charge. It feels very sturdy when you're holding it and it doesn't have any fiddly buttons that break easily.
I have experienced one or two occasions where the connection did not succeed but these are fairly easily resolved. (Mush easier than the Jabra Solemate I had, with the same issue!)
If you're thinking of buying a bluetooth speaker, you can find them online from £5 to £500. I would definitely steer clear of the cheaper end of the market as you'll find yourself buying again after a few months (I should know!) and go for this model instead.
At this price, if it breaks/you lose it/drop it etc. you won't be as gutted as you would if you spent over £100
Go for it!

One more point, having read lots of reviews of various speakers, why do they design bluetooth speakers that the manufacturers claim should be listened to at around 80% volume for optimum sound quality? Just daft!
P.S. This sounds great at 100% :D
