Technology Meets Design

Turn up the Music
The built-in 3.5mm inlet supports surround sound signals on the highest level. The device supports any kind of media playback: music, games, movies or net-based media streaming. The built-in microphone is ideal for clear conversations – answer and end calls with only one button. Even a high sound frequency guarantees crystal-clear sounds and two robust rubber feet at the bottom reduce vibration.

Dual-connection in Both Wired and Bluetooth
Connect with any bluetooth-enabled device (Bluetooth 2.1 and over) or just plug in with the traditional 3.5mm audio cable to start your tunes, offer dual-connection in both wired and wireless, and it’s just that simple, plug and play. It also supports Macintosh as well as Windows PCs. A power button and the other interfaces are built into the back of the device: optimal arrangement and space utilization.

The Reality 

The sleek, long-horizontal design speaks volumes to users who get a useful stand plus an elegant look that evokes power and convenience. The device placement option on top is a great design move. All devices I found fit nicely even with covers on them while the notch was deep enough to alleviate any stability concerns.

This 10 W speaker set (5 W x two drivers) comes with a manual, a 3.5mm stereo cable and a USB micro charge cable.

Here are some detailed specifications:

Signal distance: up to 10m (signal conditions may vary or be less favorable due to interfering signals)
Battery: Li-Ion cell, capacity -> 800 mAh
Measurements: 9.5 x 2 x 1.5-in (24.13 x 5.08 x 3.81-cm)
Supported wireless modes: Bluetooth v2.1 and EDR

Users get a helpful indicator light to confirm connection. The transmission range can be affected by low battery power.

The sound performance produces no static or distortion even at high levels, but wavers a bit when projecting voice through the speaker when using as a phone or personal PA system.

No volume control in the back just the power switch, auxiliary port, and mini USB port for charging the speaker. Users get long speaker use after each charge and the size is perfect for traveling and other mobile uses.

Connected devices usually have volume controls, so it does not make much sense to duplicate that feature. The built-in auxiliary (3.5mm) inlet channels sound from a variety of media like games, movies, music, or net-based media streaming

The support arm pulls out from behind the speaker for an extra sturdy stand and the two rubber strips on the bottom provide nice stability and reduce vibration.

The holding strip is sturdy and stable thanks to a weight bottom complete with the slip resistant strips. Better to have a solid holding strip instead of trying to make it adjustable in the design.

The back surface needs more cleaning attention when fingerprinted though stands up well amid other normal “wear and tear” conditions.

A solid speaker option with an appealing look and simple interface while the device placement option on top pushes it beyond the average speaker’s capabilities.
