4.0 out of 5 stars Packs a punch and small, 17 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Jabra Solemate Mini Wireless Bluetooth Speaker - Black (Electronics)
Have been looking at something like this for a while as a travelling device. Considered FOXL but this has better sound, UE boombox but this is cheaper, and Bose Mini - best for sound and quality in my view, but double the money and triple the weight, so on those two counts it's off radar. Back to the Solemate:

+ it's small and light enough for packing in a suitcase (just)
+ truly funky design - hand it to the Scandies, they know a thing or two about design
+ rubbery grip all round and the grippy base
+ love the way the accessory cable winds into the base
+ best of all: audio is excellent, warm and bassy enough though don't expect a miracle, sparkly highs
+ at £60 or so a good deal compared to the market options
+ very simple controls
+ paired effortlessly with W7 laptop, Android smartphone (Note III) and Android tablet (Xperia Z)

- Jabra do a cheap but quite good waterproof carry bag for other products, I'd have appreciated some such for this little guy and would've paid the extra. As it is, no enclosed carry bag
- sound can distort for some audio feeds, even when you turn down the volume at feed source
- a truly annoying announcement every time you switch it on to let you know it's on (why?) followed by an equally annoying announcement stating it's now successfully paired. Both at full volume for god's sake and no way to switch them off in the menu.

Aside from that last point - with which you just have to live - this is a delightful bluetooth mini-speaker that packs a punch way above its weight (literally), and offers stonking value compared to the others on the market. Absolutely no regrets.
