Every modern meeting room, board room and travelling business person needs one of these
on 3 February 2016
I purchased this for use at work, and have since purchased another for work as the first one was received so well.
When coupled with Skype, this item is brilliant for conference calls, and can easily be used for a meeting room full of people to talk to a room full of people elsewhere in the world. The sound quality is excellent, and it really does feel like the person at the other end is in the room with you. The controls on the unit are very straightforward and uncomplicated.
The speaker comes in a handy pouch, which both protects the speaker, but also prevents you from inadvertently turning it on by catching the buttons.
The USB cable is long enough to position the speaker conveniently far enough away from your laptop to not pick up the sound of the fan. The USB plug has a convenient notch on it which allows the plug to be clipped into the recess around the speaker in which the cable is stored, preventing it coming unravelled.
I have also used this in Bluetooth mode, paired with my iPhone 5s, and works just as well.
The speaker is just small enough to carry around in your laptop bag, but big enough to give a very solid convincing sound reproduction.
For any business which is starting to use Skype and other VOIP services more, then this is an essential addition to any meeting room, board room or just for taking on your travels, and for when you are not at work, you can just use it as a speaker for playing your music.
