This speaker is banging! I'm fussy with sound, this is really good. I haven't done a lot of listening to these portable speakers to be honest because I research most of my products online like most people. But this went down to £20 for a few days and I'm well impressed! Everybody who has heard it is impressed, for it's size it is really loud, and the bass is pretty good. It's got 3 speakers in total, 2 on the sides and one underneath for bass. It comes with a good quality flat cable. When you plug the cable in it instantly turns the speaker on, Which I like. To use Bluetooth you hold the top button down for like 10 seconds till it beeps and the light flashes then you can connect your phone/ device to it...

I use this almost everyday and I have it on 1 down from full volume and the battery lasts bloody ages! Seriously it lasts such a long time! I highly recommend this speaker to anybody, sounds great, battery life is brilliant and it looks nice too!

I got this to provide an easy way of getting music in the garden and around the house.
The battery life is good, the unit is very loud for its size and whereas audiophiles would not be impressed with the sound quality it's more than good enough for my needs.
It's very easy to pair it with different devices and the controls on the top are easy to use.
If I had one moan it would be that if you stick your phone in your pocket and then walk around your body can block the Bluetooth signal. This may be down to my phone and not the Phoenix but is a quite annoying.

This speaker is perfect if you dont like the sound from your tablets and smartphones and really easy to set up! for £80 you would maybe expect slightly better sound but if you Google "clas ohlson bluetooth speaker" the same unbranded speaker is on for £24.99 which makes it a must have at that price!

Beacon portable Bluetooth speaker

What is it ?
This is a small portable speaker that will connect to any mobile device via Bluetooth or via a supplied mini jack to mini jack lead.
Construction

The unit is well made and looks very modern. It has a built in lithium Ion battery that recharges via a supplied USB cable. The sockets are of excellent quality. The whole unit feels sturdy and well made and measures 8cm high, 8cm wide and 8 cm long approx. The top of the unit has volume up and down controls and on/off and stop. The top surround has an LED to indicate on, charged and pairing.

In use

Pairing it to a Bluetooth device was easy. I managed to get it to find and pair with my iPod in a few seconds. The unit remembers the pairing so you don't need to pair each time. I also got it to pair easily with my Nokia phone. Full instructions are supplied but it's very easy to use and set up. It ran for just over 5 hours on a single charge at about 75% volume. It will also charge and power via a laptops USB connection. It took about 40 minutes to charge from flat.

Sound quality

For the size of the unit it's quite amazing. The sound is clear, focused and quite loud. It is way better than my laptop speakers. It is ideal if you want music while working or just chilling. Don't expect to fill the room with bass as with a unit of this size that would be impossible but it's far better than my laptop speakers and amazing compared to the built in speaker in my nokia phone.

Overall

An easy to use and good quality portable speaker that sounds great. It will always be in my briefcase while travelling now.

As a travel speaker, it's perfect, it's a decent size for packing, and whilst not audiophile quality, it's certainty good enough considering the size, had no problems pairing with my Android phone - Sony Xperia S, didn't even need to consult the instructions (typical man..), it's simple to use, comes with a cord for non-bluetooth devices, and a charging cable, a Mini-USB (NOTE: Not Micro-USB).

Battery life is OK, but not great considering the charge time (3 hours to charge for 8 hours playback).

Pros:
Small
Sounds Good
Great Aesthetics
Easy to use, easy to setup
Line-in for non-bluetooth devices (and included cable)

Cons:
Comes with a Mini-USB rather than a Micro-USB (means I need to pack a different lead than all my other gadgets and phone)
Average charge/discharge ratio.
No travel bag to put it in (shame they skimped on this).

The Phoenix portable bluetooth wireless speaker from Beacon Audio is supplied in a sturdy cardboard box that is reminiscent of Apple's packaging, albeit with a large clear panel to allow you to see the colour of the unit you are buying (its available in red, blue and black). Open the box, remove the speaker and now pull the black ribbon you'll see inside the box to reveal the user manual and cables - a Mini USB cable for charging, and a 3.5mm stereo cable which allows you to use the Beacon with devices that don't have bluetooth.

The speaker unit itself is a stylized cube just under 8cm to the side weighing in at just over 200g. With the logo to the front you get speaker grilles on the left and right sides, the Mini USB charging socket and 3.5mm audio in socket on the rear, and controls on top. Around the controls is a clear plastic bezel which lights up in different ways to indicate the device status.

Plug the speaker into any USB port that can provide 400mA and it charges in about two hours. While it is charging the bezel lights up solid red; this goes out when charging is complete (you can use it while it is charging but it will take longer to recharge). Beacon quote 6-8 hours usage on their web site and again this will depend on how loud you set the volume and how good the bluetooth signal is, but I've yet to see anything that would suggest that these figures are wrong.

Pairing: This is nice and simple and similar to many other Bluetooth devices. Starting with the speakers turned off, hold down the power button until the bezel flashes blue (about 10 seconds), then use your phone, computer or tablet bluetooth menu, select "BEACON-Phoenix" and enter 0000 for the PIN if you need to. You're up and running. I tried pairing with a Galaxy Nexus (Android 4.1.
