This is a superb piece of kit for the money. I compared it with the more popular orb style of bt and wired speakers. It is well made and reliable. The key difference is, of course, this is a vibration speaker. Placement is critical to getting good sound quality – place it on the wrong surface and it will perform worse than the orb style. Glass surfaces are good too, although this is not a suction speaker. (others do have suction mounts which work well on windscreens. I would imagine you can get after market suction mounts for this adin. In summary:pros: well made, good quality sound, reliable, simple leadcons: bluetooth will use battery power.
Great sound from a small device.
Bluetooth hookup very easy with ipad2 and starts playing automatically. Sound quality fair to good and very dependent on surface attached to. Not as good a sound as non bluetooth similar item purchased from maplin which had excellent sound quality. This item is more prone to distortion at very top end of volume range. Overall still gave it 4 stars due to ease of use. Here are the specifications for the ADIN B1BT 10W Vibration Bluetooth Speaker –:
- Make sure this fits
by entering your model number.
- Innovative 10W RMS speaker which vibrates sound from any hard surface it sits on for an amazing acoustic experience
- 360° Omni-directional HiFi sound
- Rechargeable battery allows you to take music almost everywhere
- Durable Aluminium Alloy raw material
- Play music from various external sources using the 3.5mm Audio jack, or stream to the unit via Bluetooth
Only one word can describe this speaker. The sound quality is out of this world for such a small speaker i would advise anyone who wants a bluetooth speaker to buy this one. You can use it using bluetooth or hardwired with the cable supplied. I have tried on mobile phone and on samsung galaxy tablet, its so easy to set up.
Reviews from purchasers :
- The best small portable speaker you’ll buy
- Solid, well designed, powerful – but audio range is highly dependent on the surface.
- 10w powerful vibration speaker well worth its price.
Connection it is easy and the sound it is nice. If you don’t expect to have 6. 1 audio system and you realize that it’s a small speaker you w’ll have a nice experience.
Very good sound if positioned correctly.
I had been given one of these and then purchased more for sons in lawsa xmas presenters.
This vibration speaker seems really well made. It feels solid and sturdy, and depending on the surface you attach it to, can give really great results. The rechargeable built-in battery seems to last for ages. More than just a gimmick or gadget, it makes a really useful portable speaker.
Just one negative point, it should have a 3. The plug is very fragile, it will be damaged in no time, it’s not a reliable plug.
I purchased this having heard a friend use his. Great quality and loud, unfortunately though, only once you have found the right surface for it.
A very useful little gadget, does exactly what it said and is portable and perfect for our use.
Solid product, well built, good design on the whole. Well, that depends on the music and very much on the surface you place it on. You may be wise to invest in a support, suction cup or similar device – it needs to be stuck/held onto the surface at any decent volume to avoid rattling against that surface. It can give deeper sounds, which you can feel, but most people would probably want a normal speaker to reproduce the missing frequencies. There is no audio/out jack plug. You the included usb-to-audio/usb cable, which might be a disadvantage for those not using the (boomtech) bluetooth features. Overall, a wonderfully design, heavy product, but which is unlikely to replace your full-range, air-pushing speakers. It is amazing how sound is transmitted through ones skull. At your own risk – it’s not design for that).
I think this little speaker is a marvel, everyone at work who listened to it said they were going to get one as well, being bluetooth you can place it in your room without irritating wires trailing everywhere, and the sound quality is more than adequate.
Had a similar item before, but it developed a fault. Although the previous one had a micro sd slot, fm radio and remote control, i prefer the bluetooth connectivity on this new replacement item as i do not need to use the lead to connect to my mobile phones or tablet pc – only to charge the inbuilt battery.
This is a great little gizmo, gives good sound on a variety of surfaces. Sticking it on your forehead is a weirdly addictive social activity.
I’ve now been using this speaker for six months and i’m very happy with the compact size and performance. Though the sound quality may not be what you may expect from a top end speaker system you are not paying top end speaker prices. By moving it around on different surfaces you can get differing tone quality. This is a budget vibration speaker and as such it does all that is expected.
This item is soooo good, the sound that comes out of this little speaker is amazing.
Bought it for my husband for christmas 2015 and it’s the best thing since sliced bread , over the moon with it.
Good portable versatile vibro speaker.
This is a great item – very compact with good sound quality. Very reasonable delivery time. Would recommend to others and purchase again in future.
