MBS 200 Bluetooth Speaker review
on 19 May 2011
I've been quite impressed with this little speaker which is basically a black plastic sphere about 4 inches diameter with a flattened hollow base which contains the two audio and the charger connectors plus control buttons. Initial Bluetooth pairing went very well and connects quickly after that on power up. I find that it does not display the track name as per the manual but I think this is due to my phone as I have the same problem with my car radio. The output is only mono but you can connect it to a stereo hi-fi or portable amplified speaker for better bass and stereo sound via the 3.5mm jack socket built in. You also use it to amplify non Bluetooth equipment via another 3.5mm jack which acts as an input (not tried yet in my case). There is also a volume up and down button on the rear. Battery life (rechargeable - charger included) seems quite good and it will power off after about 20 minutes if the Bluetooth is disconnected. Overall I would certainly recommend it especially in view of the reasonable price.
