Xmi PTE LTD, the creators of the capsule speaker genre, announces the arrival of their latest innovation, the x-mini max 2 speakers. This eagerly-awaited new generation of the popular x-mini max series features key aesthetic improvements while retaining it essential hallmark of "minimum size. Maximum sound".
Developed in Singapore, the xmini max 2 is expertly designed to be ultra portable and precisely engineered to deliver a superior sound. With a simple twist and lift, the avant garde capsule-shaped design unveils a pair of stereo speakers. These stylish speakers, which can also be used individually, pop open to reveal the patented accordion like bass xpansion system (BXS) which successfully mimics the resonance of a sub woofer. Defying the conventional notion that size does matter, the x-mini max 2 is a moveable feast of sounds. Its new 40mm driver, expanded BXS, extended playback time and modular "buddy-jack" design, enables it to effectively generate high quality and extensive aural ranges, be it the rich timbres of a soprano or the pulsating electronic beats of the latest dance track. New to the design aesthetics of the X-mini max 2 is the open and angled drivers for a directional audio enhancement as well as a richer bass output. Promoting communal usage with friends who have any second generation x-mini speakers is the "buddy jack" function that enables you to connect one x-mini to another, capable of forming an almost endless "daisy chain" of self powered, bass enhanced portable speaker system.
The logical choice for the itinerant aficionado, the powerful yet compact x-mini max 2 produces high fidelity sound at any pitch or volume and is perfect in all environments, be it the boardroom or kitchen. About the award winning x-mini capsule speaker: Winner of the prestigious red dot design awards (Germany) and the infocomm Singapore awards, which is the top innovation award in Singapore. The x-mini capsule speaker is revolutionary in the world of portable audio technology, striking the perfect balance of pocketsize Portability and uncompromising sound quality. The x-mini has a patented extendable vacuum that mimics the resonance of a sub-woofer (bass Xpansion System or BXS) capable of producing explosive volume and bass over ten times its physical size.

The speakers are small, ganged together to make a stereo signal and the operation is simple as.
I did notice a degradation in sound quality when connecting them to my laptop via the USB port...a hum ensued which stopped immediately upon pullng the USB lug out. It's through the USB port that you charge the internal batteries.
As I type this they're being driven by my iPhone and from 4 feet away playing Santana, they sound great.
I bought these as travel companions but also to be used when I do presentations. They'll be used in various room sizes so it'll be interesting to see how they project but I have no reason to doubt that they'll do fine in mid sixzed rooms capable of holding 20-30 people. An auditorium? Probably not.
In summary...for holiday, for the bbq in summer, for general house use they're great and I do really mean great.
Update - Contacted the manufacturer and they sent out the lead first class from Singapore and they now work. Arrived two days later. Excellent customer service. Only 4 stars as the distance between the usb and audio jack on the lead (approx. 8cm) is too small for both to be plugged in at the same time on my laptop.
Now they sound impressive enough when driven from an ipod or ipad, although you won't achieve the full volume of these units (as the headphone socket of apple devices isn't that loud). However connect them to a laptop, such as the MacBook Air and they blow your mind! Ok without changing the laws of physics you are not expecting floor shaking stomach moving bass from a driver that is not much bigger than a 2p coin, but place the mini's on a solid surface not too high off the floor and they deliver an amazing sound with warmth and noticeable bass. Comparing to the single XMI speaker the stereo Mini Max 2's deliver an enticing soundscape with sparkling mid range presence and a crisp clean dynamic sound. I certainly have never heard a small pair of speakers in this price range sound as good as these. Running Garageband on my macbook or iTunes and some tweaking of the EQ, these speakers can seriously hurt your ears! Put them on the floor for better bass response or infront of you either side of your laptop for a crisp highly detailed sound stage. The X-mini max 2 are the perfect compliment to carrying round with your laptop or portable music player, they take hardly any space up in the bag and provide more than enough battery life on a single charge to keep you entertained for hours.
My only criticism with the X-mini max 2's is that unlike the single X-mini max, the speaker cone's are rather exposed. You need to be careful when packing them that you dont accidentally stick something in to the top of the speakers as the entire surface of the drivers are open.
I would thoroughly recommend these over the single speaker for sound quality and stereo presence, unless you really need a more compact solution in a single speaker. Granted they wont replace big speakers for bass and low frequency response, but I think you will be surprised at just how good these are for the price and especially for their price. Epic!
