5.0 out of 5 stars Punchy little blighter!, 19 Oct. 2013
This review is from: Jabra Solemate Mini Wireless Bluetooth Speaker - Black (Electronics)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
When this arrived I thought it was a mistake - the packet was so small, and light that I thought it must be the wrong item - BUT that all changed when I opened the box.

This tiny active speaker system is all that it promises to be and more - because it is so small, you genuinely can take it around with you!

Firstly, both of the long sides of the system are metal speaker grilles, whereas all other surfaces are a warm rubber finish. The bottom which is chunky like the soul of a boot has a 3.5mm stereo lead built in so that you can connect from the headphone socket of your phone or mp3 player. One side has a socket for the 3.5mm cable, an on/off switch and a USB charging socket. The other side has the legend NFC emblazed on it.

The top has three rubberised button that must be pressed firmly, the outer two are volume up and down. When you press them a beep is heard through the speakers. The centre button will perform different functions depending on what is connected but for example it will answer or end a phone call, or initiate a bluetooth pairing.

As soon as you power it up (it comes partially charged) it speaks to you! A male voice suggest that you connect to it by Bluetooth, and carries on until you do, whereupon it tells you it has been paired.

All I had to do with my Nokia 920 Windows phone was touch it against the side saying "NFC" and immediately my phone came up with the invitation to "pair" over Bluetooth, I said yes and with that I had music playing.

The sound quality is deceptively good, if slightly directional (because of the size of the unit). Whilst not too loud, it would be inappropriate to criticise its quality. Even the bass is good, which from such small speaker drivers is always hard. It delivers a satisfactory volume level for any use I would put it to.

I think that I expected something 4 times the physical size but with exactly this sound quality. It has to be a plus that the system is so small, and I can thoroughly recommend it at this price.
