5.0 out of 5 stars A very good Bluetooth mini-speaker, 11 April 2014
This review is from: OXA Mini Portable Wireless Bluetooth Speaker with Rechargeable Battery, Support Micro TF Card and AUX Line-in for Cell Phones and Laptops (Silver)
Length:: 3:49 Mins

OXA sent me this Bluetooth mini-speaker for review and I agree with the enthusiastic reviews here: it is a very good. For its size and price it delivers good sound and volume, and I have been impressed by it.

I have tried a number of OXA products and find them all to be of very good build quality and this, too, is a very well-made unit. It is extremely stylish with a metal finish coated in a plastic layer which repels marks and is very easy to clean. It is light at 170g (6oz) and measures just 7cm tall and 6cm square at its broadest, so it is extremely portable. It has a good, robust feel about it, and I think it will stand up well to being chucked into a bag and carried around.

The sound is very good for its size. You're not going to get real hi-fi from a unit like this, of course, but the sound is very clear and well-articulated especially in the treble and middles. The bass is (inevitably) a little weak but it's not bad at all, and for casual use as a desk speaker, say, this will serve very well. I have tried it with a lot of music including my Test Playlist which begins with some Tudor choral music from about 1520, ends up with London Grammar and has most things in between. Orchestras sound a little blurred (but I'd exepect that from a small unit) but the sound in general is richer than you would expect, it's pleasurable to listen to and goes pretty punchily loud if you want.

It is simple to operate. Bluetooth pairing was simple and has a decent range. The controls work well and connectivity is good via a jack socket or micro-SD card as well as Bluetooth. The obligatory blue lights are in the base, which looks very good and isn't obtrusive.

As others have said, the instructions are printed in such absurdly small type that I had to use a magnifying glass to read them (seriously!) but that's the only gripe I have. This isn't cheap for a mini speaker but I think the quality of sound and of build make it very good value. Warmly recommended.
