Highly recommend this product, I like reviews because they give you a good idea of the performance and functions of a product, hopefully I can provide just that.
This is a good bluetooth speaker, I have tried it on my smartphone, my tablet and my laptop. it has a blue led when using bluetooth and a red led light when wired into a device without bluetooth functionality with the 3.5 mm cable.
The speaker has three buttons on it, you can control the music player of your bluetooth device, to skip tracks, play and pause them. The controls are also used for the hands free function of your phone, I find this function not particularly useful, if paired with your phone you can answer and end a call, the situation in which you use it would be if you're playing music in one room and the phone is in another, you could answer your phone if you so wish. Sound is clear, the mic works fine however you need to hold it close to your mouth to be heard, though understand this is a speaker, not a phone accessory.
The Sound Quality is very good, its clear and has very good bass response. I played a variety of music and I like the sound with all of them, the volume can be very loud, good enough to fill a room with sound to entertain friends. I used the speaker to play video as well and as a personal preference I like crisper high tones with video which this speaker lacks, so I recommend it highly for music, the bass is insane, very strong, turn the speaker high volume and it sends out shock waves.
The speaker itself is of high build quality, its solid as a rock, simple design and one feature I like a lot is the rubber pad under the speaker which helps it sit securely on any surface. Its for home use, if you use it elsewhere its the size of a cricket ball so it wont fit in your pocket but easily into a small bag. The battery life is great, easily going to last 5 hours.
It charges via a usb cable, it handily has an led light which turns off when fully charged.
One feature I dont rate highly is the range, it says up to 10 metres, I find up to 5 metres the speaker functions perfectly, beyond that the sound begins to skip, unless its stationary. I wouldnt use it beyond 7 metres, the reliability of the speaker drops.
so there you have it an honest review of a product I recommend, if you want a speaker to enhance your laptop speakers or pair with your mp3, as a buyer you will not regret the purchase.
