Reasonable sound but some quirky features,
This review is from: AVES Aqua Portable Bluetooth Speaker w/ Noise-reduction Mic Handsfree Phone Kit in Black (Electronics)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The glossy black unit is supplied with a mains charger, a USB charging cable, a carrying pouch and an instruction manual. It isn't supplied with an audio cable although it has an audio input at the rear.
There is an on-off switch on the rear and touch controls on the front, the touch controls are only for the Bluetooth function although the manual does not make this clear.
When using the audio input it is only necessary to switch on at the rear, the touch controls have no function and you cannot alter the volume other than with the input device.
The Bluetooth is switched on with the touch on-off control at the front and pairing was straightforward with the speaker appearing as an Aves Aqua headset. The touch controls for volume are now active. The on-off touch switch also functions as a pause and repeat song switch but it is tricky to operate without accidentally switching the Bluetooth off, it is also very easy to accidentally touch it when moving the speaker when it is lying flat.
When paired with a phone you can answer a call with the speaker by touching the phone symbol, this was tricky until I realised that the speaker could be stood upright and then the controls were on the top, much more logical; no mention of that in the manual. This function worked well. I've tried to show answering a call in the video, the ringing sound is my mobile, the speaker mutes the music and makes a soft beep noise for an incoming call.
Sound quality was reasonable, very little bass, but better than the laptop and phone I paired it with.
Battery life is specified as better than 6 hours, after 10 hours I still don't have the low battery LED on, although it probably depends on the volume setting.

Thank You. I didnt realise you could stand it on the switch base until I read your review.

Mr. G. Bridgeman-clarke says:
Regret I totally disagree, the sound is awful for a £60 device. this is Chinese technology at its worse. you can find better portable speakers for half this price.
