Top Customer Reviews
However, I am pleasantly surprised. It looks light but has a good weight and feels rugged and well constructed. The base looks like the tread of a boot, but this is an improvement over the previous Jabra offerings as it helps it keep still instead of vibrating off the table.
The unit easily paired with my phone, and tells you when it is paired in a nice tone. When switched on you hear a nice vibrating tone to let you know its on. When its connected via Bluetooth you hear "Soulmate is connected". You have a separate volume control on top of the unit so you can alter the sound from either the unit or your device (when using the buttons on the unit, the iPhone volume slider moves to coincide with a higher/lower volume. The overall volume is loud but probably not as loud as claimed.
At the base is a lead to connect to an headphone out socket on any device. This looks like a yellow lace and therefore continues the shoe styling. There is also a sound bag to keep it in when you are out and about. You get a USB lead for charging and a main USB lead in case you do not have a computer to charge it from, but the plug is a 2 pin shaver type, so you will need an adapter to use it.
The big test is sound. Sound overall feels OK, it has a good bass for the size of the unit and high notes are ok, but not brilliant. When compared to the Logitech mentioned above which offers a better bass and higher clearer notes, it feels flat. However, they are for two entirely different markets.Read more ›
They are in fact modelled on a Doc Martin boot.
This may divide opinions; some will love it, while others may write off the Solemate for this reason alone. I shall try to be objective, in the full knowledge that the styling alone may be the deciding factor for many. If the styling is not to your taste, I would suggest considering the Braven 650 (or one of its siblings) as I also have one of these, and have found it excellent, and which I shall use as a point of comparison. (Braven 650 Portable Wireless Speaker - Silver Aluminium)
The Solemate is marketed as being tough, dust and splashproof. It certainly feels well built with a black matt soft touch finish, steel grille, ridged rubber sole and carry loop. It is also quite heavy, and somewhat larger than the Braven (610g, 172mm x 64mm x 70mm VS 350g, 159mm x 64mm x 45mm).
Inside the case there are 3 speakers; two smaller and a larger central speaker. On one end there is a fabric grab strap, and on the other the 3.5mm audio, micro usb, off-on-Bluetooth multiswitch. On the top are three flush buttons for controlling the device. A clever design feature is the inclusion of a 3.5mm to 3.5mm connector in the style of a yellow boot lace which is stored in a groove in the sole.
The raison d'etre for speakers: Sound. Fortunately, the quality is excellent, with a very full sound. All frequencies sound well balanced, except that the bass seems somewhat emphasised. The sound was both louder and of better quality than the Braven 650, with no distortion evident, as there was for the Braven at full volume.Read more ›
It has a microphone so if it on the desk you can have a hands free conversation as well.
The device is quite heavy, 650 grams ish but that goes with the great build quality. The battery has a good life as yet i haven't run it down in 3+ hours. Haven't determined if the battery can be changed out for a new one. I had a tivoli radio but the batteries keep dying, dispite changing them, so it now runs off mains power which is not good for use outside.
I steam internet radio, play podcasts and music in the garage / shed / greenhouse (at neighbourly volume) because the repoduction is clear as a bell. Hopefully this solution will endure.
The only irritationg thing is the greeting voice that tells you "solemate is connected" when it finds your device.
It is pricey but I'd say the sound quality makes it worth it.
Dispite Amazon's usual value, I've seen this for £99 in a high street shop.
The sound is good and it will fill a room, but the bass relies too much on bass boost support and on bass heavy songs it just sounds a little too forced. The battery lasts for approximately 9 hours with the volume at 75% and it takes about 2 hours to fully charge it.
Ultimately though I have to compare this speaker with the Braven 650 Bluetooth Speaker (the price of it goes up and down but at the time of writing it costs the same as the Jabra) which outscores it in a number of areas. The Braven is more compact and nowhere near as heavy (370g) and in the two most important areas when considering a portable speaker - sound quality and battery life - the Braven beats this hands down. It delivers the same volume of sound but it handles bass much better - it sounds natural and unforced - and it has a battery that lasts 16-17 hours. Additionally, the volume buttons allow you to skip between tracks and you can also charge a mobile phone from it, features that the Solemate does NOT have.
Whilst this is a decent speaker, there is a better speaker in the same price range (at the time of writing) available and for that reason alone 3½ stars is an appropriate rating.
