Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
As it happens, I bought some Chill Pill Compact Portable iPod & iPhone Speakers about a month ago, so I was sceptical when Amazon Vine offered to send me one of these units too. But after a week of use I have fallen in love with it.

First, the sound quality. It's very good, making the best use of the size and build of the unit to give as full a sound as I have heard from small speakers. I paired it up with my Nokia E71 phone and have been playing a range of music through it, all without complaint from my room-mate. The volume control is the right-hand end of the tube and is a bit fiddly to use, especially on the supplied plastic "stand". Also, I found that pressing the control (left-hand end of the tube) to pause or play music involves too much thought and co-ordination. An actual button on the top would be better.

The stand isn't anything special; just a plastic rectangle with dents. I think they should have designed the tube with a flat side instead. The unit came with a 3.5mm jack-to-jack lead for line-in, but I've not used it yet as all my music goes via Bluetooth.

As a speaker-phone, the unit is excellent. The sound quality is brilliant and I've been using it regularly for calls with no complaints from callers about "being in a tin box" like I get from using the phone in hands-free. The unit doesn't pair properly with the E71 so I can't accept or drop calls by pressing the control on the tube, but using the phone controls isn't too much of a price to pay.

The unit charges from USB but actually has a Nokia-style power connector on the tube itself so comes with an adapter cord. I've been charging it using my Nokia charger too.

First the good points:

Very well made: sturdy & no sharpe points.
Smart brushed silver coloured finish.
Compact & lightweight speaker size - very transportable.
Excellent bluetooth - pairs quickly & easily with my Sony Eric mobile, my wife's Nokia & our son's Samsung mp3 player. Doesn't 'drop' the sound if close enough to devise & doesn't have to be that close.
Sound is good - clear & goes quite loud (not disco levels but well above normal talking volumes)
Connectivity is via bluetooth or line in cable (supplied)
Comes complete with pouch, mains and USB charger.

Bad points:

Not much base - hardly surprising given the small size of the speaker.

And that's it. Great product, easy to use and does EXACTLY what it should do easily & with some style.

Highly recommended.

I have two other travel speakers, Creative and Sony, but this beats both hands down. Sleek, sexy and the best sound for its size. What I wanted to do was to be able to play my MP3 player wirelessly through this. After searching high and low for a Bluetooth adapter, buying three in the process, I finally found one. Made by a company named Enjoy, the tiny blutooth adapter paired with the Linx and the two together is an absolute marvel. The ones that I tried but wouldn't pair were the Jabra and the Jaybird.

I bought this as I wanted something portable for use in the garden and bathroom.

For £30, it's just about worth it .... mainly for the convenience and portability it offers as the sound quality is fairly average.

Was a doddle to set up with my phone, which is a Sony W950i so supports A2DP and connects up easy as pie.

Far more hassle getting it working with my computer. XP doesn't support A2DP natively so you'll need to install alternate bluetooth software in order to get it working (and your dongle needs to be a Widcomm based one or you've had it). Got it going eventually but the setup was far from straightforward.

Having said all that, once it is working it does what it says on the tin and it looks pretty smart in the bathroom.

The built in rechargeable battery is a definite plus and it may well come in handy on holiday as a portable speaker to attach to my media player.

Sound quality is pretty average. Very little bass and overall I'd give it about 5/10 on this front but then it was never going to blow your head off with 2x2w output I suppose.

Controls on the device are limited and a wee bit fiddly but OK once you get the hang of them.

Overall, as long as you don't expect miracles on the sound quality front, it's probably just about worth the money. I wouldn't buy it at the £50 it was originally priced at though.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
i got this product today and i wasnt completely sure that it was one i was going to make good use of and wasnt completely sure what it would do as i dont have a mobile or an ipod (poor me :-( ). but i do know a teenager with both (my daughter). i unwraped the packaging an the tube looks great, trendy and "cool" we linked it with the mobile via the bluetooth within seconds and had music coming from the speakers with very good sound quality and volume, it turned off when the phone call came in and was easily answered with one press on the end of the tube. we plugged in the ipod and same thing my daughter is already asking for it to take to school to use in her art class as the kids play music during lessons through their phone headphones, with this she will be very popular (watch out amazon you may get a few orders here!)and i may not get it back. next i plugged the tube into my laptop and the sound quality was instantly improved. i cant get over how useful this is and im sure that although we may start sharing this item i might have to buy a couple more! this would make such a good reasonably priced present for teenages and adults alike i cant see anyone not finding a use for one.it charges quickly ,has a range of red blue and green lights around the end of the tube depending on what its doing. the instructions are really simple the only thing that could be improved is a better stand to fix the tube if you wanted to use it hands free in the car. it comes with a very nice pouch to keep it in and is quite compact to fit in a large pocket or handbag. get the thing out in a public area and people all want to know what this is and what it does. One for the top of the xmas list for sure!!!!!!!!!!!
OH! and the very useful thing is the plug in charger which means you can charge anything that you normally charge through usb, so all my wii stuff is charged without having to leave the console on !
