Colour: Black Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Straight out of the impressive packaging and the superb build-quality is immediately apparent. The ethos here is consistent with Nokia's very attractive newer phones such as the N8 and Lumina 800 - simple industrial design, few buttons and highly tactile materials. I like the look and feel of it a lot - this speaker is the opposite of plastic and bling: it's metal, cloth and quiet elegance.

Sound is great. It's never going to clear a room of tutting pensioners but it's more than loud enough for the usual portable uses (which in our case is to have music in the bathroom without the risk of mains electricity). There's a good degree of control too at the loudest settings - absolutely no distortion or case rattles. The overall sound is a little warm but good sources will still ting some pleasing treble over the pacey, engaging, mid-range and clean bass. This is a clear, controlled and full sound which we like very much. Fed TuneIN radio from a smartphone, the sound was always satisfying even when dropping to lower quality streams to maintain reception. Music straight off the phone through DoubleTwist Player sounds especially good.

Pairing with a selection of phones has been less satisfying - the process works fine and features a handy etching of the main instructions on the base of the speaker, but none of our phones automatically reconnect when in range. It feels like they should so rooting around phone settings to select the speaker and re-pair with it a little annoying.

But, again, here Nokia offer an elegant near-future solution in the form of NFC functionality. If you have an NFC phone then simply tapping that phone on the top of the speaker will set-up a connection. I like that idea a lot and look forward to trying it with a future handset.

I bought two of these to create a stereo speaker configuration - they were really easy to pair with each other (once paired, you can forget about them). Pairing to both my Nokia Lumia 800 and my notebook PC through Bluetooth was also straightforward, and it's easy to switch between the two.

Sound quality is fantastic - these are amongst the best desktop speakers that I've heard in this price range. The fact that they can be used completely wirelessly is a massive benefit. The speakers are also still small enough to be used in travel situations - I bring these with me for parties and weekend trips now. There's no distortion at the highest volume - and the volume coming out of these small cubes is inpressively high when you set it at full blast. Bass is fairly strong (there's some clever design in these cubes), and the treble never becomes uncomfortable.

Battery life is brilliant - unexpectedly so. Certainly, they last for a full weekend with fairly prolonged periods of music and podcasts. They intelligently turn off when there's no activity too, preserving battery life.

I cannot recommend highly enough, especially in the stereo combination. Brilliant!

Colour: Black Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
What an amazing little speaker. Out of the box I was dubious about how such a petite unit would perform, but the build quality was sturdy, not to mention undeniably stylish, so I gave them a whirl with my laptop. Connecting with bluetooth was painless, as was a trial with my Lumia, and the sound...! I've coveted speakers from Bose at least twice as large, and five times the price of the MD-50W, but not any more! The sound is warm, balanced, vibrant and surprisingly powerful with rich bass. Not even a hint of tinniness. I was so attached to my speaker that I recently took it on holiday with me (customs gave it some very curious looks when they rootled through my cases on the way back) and it was perfect for using in our apartment, easily transported given its light weight and the battery life did us proud - using it for a few hours every day, it was still going strong after a week.

Nothing but praise here - if I had the cash, I'd collect them!

Colour: Black Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
The speaker has a very nice form factor. There's enough weight in it to not feel like other 'portable' tinny unpowered speakers, without sacrificing portability itself. However, when I say portable, I mean carrying from one room to the next. Frankly, I don't see myself sticking it in my bag to bring to a friend's, so the included carry pouch seems rather optimistic. The understated matte black is nicely complimented by the front volume and sync buttons/light, with power and ports around the back. The device does switch off automatically after a few minutes, but I would've preferred if the power button was accessible from the front.

I don't have an NFC device so can't vouch for that, but over Bluetooth it's a painless pairing process, compared to some devides. Pair once, then in the future, turn on the speaker, select the speaker from your phone/PC etc. and you're off. Sound quality is decent, but comparable to a decent radio rather than the kind of speaker I'd choose to sit back and listen to music through. My speaker currently lives in my bathroom, where I can stick some music on my PC and have it play while I take a shower - brilliant, but it won't replace my main PC speakers anytime soon. The one area of concern is that when connected to my PC by cable, the sound quality was very poor - with significant low-frequency crackling. I haven't been able to tell if this is an instrinsic problem with the 3.5mm input, or if the PC is just supplying it with levels much louder than over Bluetooth. I'd be interested to see if others have had a similar experience here.

Overall, it works very well for my purposes, where it represents an acceptable compromise between portability and sound quality, with a lovely fit and finish to its physical form and functionality. However, it's greatest difficulty is justifying its price for "sort of ok" sound quality.
