I've not been disappointed, this is a fantastic little speaker. It looks great, matching the existing Minx speakers with the glossy black finish, and it comes with a little bag to pop it in on your travels.
Sound quality is very good for the price. I've found many speakers at this price point to sound a little tinny, and while this doesn't sound as good as a £300+ travel system it does sound really good for the price.
Very easy to set up, you can use bluetooth or a headphone jack, and it comes with everything you need. Although it'll pair with a number of devices it will only be actively linked to one, so if someone else wants to use it you need to disconnect the first device before the second can connect.
Great for travel, the garden or just as a little bedroom speaker.
It's small size surprised me when it arrived - I guess I was expecting something nearer the Minx, but it's 'biggish tranny radio' size. The bluetooth connection works well (especially if you're sending AptX codex info to it) and connects easily. The little light behind the speaker grill glows different colours to show what kind of input it's getting, and flashes when pairing. The sound via cable (aux in) is even better than Bluetooth, as you'd expect.
Be careful on two counts, however. First, like all speakers, never judge it until it's run-in. The sound quality relaxed and bedded-in after a few days of use. Second, it is very (very) fussy about placement: that's what you put it on, and how near a rear surface it is. Positioned in free space and too near to you, it can sound boxy and lack a lot of bass information. Put it on a solid non-resonant surface about 9" from a wall and a couple of metres away and it springs into life, with a good level of detail, a nicely balanced frequency response, and a capacity to go loud without shouting at you.
Position it carefully, feed it some HD music through a decent cable and this unit will delight. Or just pop it on the kitchen window ledge and play the radio through it from non-AptX bluetooth from an iPhone and it still sounds good.
It's a nice sounding speaker at a very good price. Firmly recommended.
Numerous reviews said that for the price this product delivers, so here i am.
If it interests the packaging is nice, not over engineered but clean and appropriate. It comes with a soft carry case, 1 page instructions, power adaptor and a 3.5 cable to connect via wire your devices. Instructions suggest charging for 4 hours before use, which I managed to do amazingly, the indicator light stayed solid red until charged.
Build quality is nice and clean, it's not premium materials but I appreciate the simple looks and with only 3 buttons on it, vol up/down and on/off, it can't really be simpler. There is a stand on the underside which swivels out, perfectly functional. The unit has weight (which is nice) and is easy to move around rooms taking advantage of the portability. Battery will apparently last 18 hours on a single charge listening on moderate levels.
Pairing is nice and easy, double press the power button and scan using your chosen device. I connect using a mixture of android devices and an iPod. It will recall up to 8 devices so once paired everyone is set.
My music collection is mostly 320k CD rips and I also use Tunein radio for a mixture of stuff. Sound quality was great, really great, I've read a fair bit about bluetooth bit rates on Android (4.2) being reduced but i can't honestly say i can notice.Read more ›
Connected to An Airplay adapter ( Airmusic ) and steaming from my Ipad the sound is superb, Bluetooth is great but not the same quality as streaming over WiFi.
No wonder it was portable speaker of the year ( What HiFi )
Looks good, sounds even better and for the money unbeatable.
The JBL Charge was my first choice, but while the highs were good, the bass was lacking too much. Also listened to UE Boom, Jambox and some bigger, wired sound docks.
None of the wireless speakers I heard really did it for me, so I decided to go for the Cambridge Minx Go that seemed to impress everyone according to the online reviews. Unfortunately there was no store in the neighbourhood where I could hear it first, so ordered it online.
At first it did sound good to me and it absolutely sounded a bit richer and fuller to my ears than the wireless speakers I heard in the stores. But when I threw some more bass heavy songs at it at a reasonable, not too loud volume, it choked on it; the Minxo Go couldn't handle the bass and the vibration of the speaker ruined the experience for me. I let the Minx Go run at a lower volume for some hours to see if that would help, but it didn't.
My neighbour bought the Bose Soundlink mini last week which seemed like a really nice speaker, but I found it to be too expensive for my needs. Because of my disappointment with the Minx, I decided to set up a side-by-side comparison of the two speakers. The Minx does sound nice when listening to music with not too much bass and a normal volume; it has a clear, quite warm sound when keeping it at lower volume. But the Soundlink Mini is in a different league; the richness and bass, even at low volume, makes the Minx sound thin and underpowered; it really is so much better imho. And believe me, I didn't want it to be so much better as I wasn't a big Bose-fan, did all my research, chose the Minx Go and finally the price difference between the two.Read more ›
