Pretty but feeble
on 19 June 2014
I bought this without doing much research, as I'd been given some birthday money and wanted something more powerful and better looking than my little white Intempo BTS-02 bluetooth speaker that I got for £12 from Argos a while back.
Unfortunately, I'm not happy with it. I didn't successfully manage to pair it to my Moto G after 15 minutes of trying. I just couldn't 'find' it anywhere when it was switched on. Perhaps it was something I was doing wrong though. Anyway, I gave up and used the audio cable and then it worked fine. Unfortunately, the sound is no more powerful than my orange-sized Intempo, and this is relatively large - as big as a thick hardback book. In fact, the sound is low and muffled, and it distorts quite badly when you go for the higher volumes. Perhaps I got a dodgy one?
Oh, and another annoying thing - once I realised it wasn't for me I put it back in the box and left it in the corner of my bedroom. A day or two later I was awoken at 5am by an insistent beeping. Couldn't work out what the hell it was for a while, but it turns out this was telling me the battery was running down. Very loudly. Nice idea I suppose but it annoyed the **** of me at the time.
Looks darn cool though. No complaints about the appearance or materials.
