Great Sound, Annoying Start-up Noise,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Cambridge Audio Minx Go - portable speakers (2.1 system, Wireless, Battery, Universal, Silver, Bluetooth) (Electronics)
I'm not going to go into all the details mentioned previously, other than to say I concur with all the positive reviews regarding sound and build quality. The USB port enabling me to charge my iPhone 5 is a really useful addition.
What I really dislike however is the annoying and unnecessarily loud beeping that sounds off every time you turn it on. There doesn't appear to be a way to stop it from broadcasting to my neighbours and my kids that it is now on. I really don't understand why they have done it, my Creative ZiiSound D5 doesn't do this, and yet it does practically the same thing. I appreciate that the visually impaired will find this audible confirmation useful, but at least give us the chance to turn it off.
This might be a deal breaker for me, as it has woken my 6 month old bubs up (she was in different room). A strange thing to negatively review an audio product for I grant you, especially as I've actually given 4 stars. I appreciate that my requirements might be fairly unique, and it is genuinely very good product, just thought I'd mention it as others may want to take it into account.
