The speaker itself is great and far superior to the cambridge audio one i currently have. I did purchase this to work with my other addon speakers but it doesn’t. Do your research first if you want this as a multi-room setup. As a thing on its own it’s fabulous.
Brilliant piece of equipment well worth the money. My ipod has now got a new life.
A very solid, substantial piece of kit. Easy to pair with bluetooth, works well over a cable connection too. I use it miatly with an ipad mini and it sounds great, good with my moto 3rd gen too. Lovely bassy sound, crank it up and it delivers. Great piece of portable oomph.
Clear, rich, powerful sound. Being portable and battery-powered is a bonus and it has a handle unlike most ‘portable’ wireless speakers. The sound is much higher quality than anything else i’ve tried, and i’ve tried quite a few. I agree with reviews and awards that praise it’s hi-fi sound. It’s really growing on me – i love it.
Received the speaker promptly. This was a birthday gift for my audiophile of a husband, and he loves it. The quick start instructions were easy to follow and connecting via bluetooth from the phone very easy. Sound wise, it’s excellent – perfect for the garden and in the house.
Looks very stylish, sounds amazing and simple to operate. I don’t think i will want another speaker again. The orange brightens up a room. This bought to complement and modernise the bose portable sound dock bought in 2007; the rechargeable battery is no more but the speaker remains as good as it was the day we bought it. Ironically the apa t3 is about £50 cheaper (as i recall) but almost matches the capability; it is not quite as loud, but almost. The sound quality is virtually indistinguishable, if anything the apa t3 outdoes the bose at lower volume settings. Pairing via bluetooth is a doddle, and the packaging is so very neatly done as to compete with apple (except its easier to open). A very robust and tactile speaker, the little details; neat leather carry grip; textured finish; simple (scandinavian) design. I did look at the bose soundlink, but what hi-fi and a whole host of other user anecdotes across the web led me to this. Am happy, and thought to leave feedback as is not something i normally do – this great speaker warrants your attention and is worth the additional £30 on a soundlink ‘all day long’.
- Best Money I ever spent!
- Eventually sounded good for the price, but not without issues. Cautious Recommendation
- Very pleased with this purchase
I would wholeheartedly recommend this product. After testing all of the major consumer bluetooth speakers i took a chance on reviews and took a chance on this one. First of all, the sound is great. The highs are detailed, the mid-range is pleasing and there’s plenty of bass. Three speakers don’t fall into the common trap of overblowing the bass leaving a much more balanced and reference sound signature. The soundstage is decent, although stereo seperation isn’t the best but it’s too be expected of a speaker this size. The volume can get very high, enough to cause hearing damage in a small room or fill a very large room or a small house with sound. Overall the sound is better than bose soundlink 2 mini, revolve and revolve plus, as well as various jbl and sony bluetooth speakers i have tested in the £100-300 bracket. It’s been knocked around and dropped a couple times and is completley unphased. It feels solid and very well built. The bluetooth connection is stable, and i’ve expirence no drops out clipping from my samsung galaxy note 8. The battery lasts for days and days. Honestly i’ve never been caught short add it lasts 20+ hours.
Much better than expected – what a great piece of kit with a great big sound. I have tested it with my old faithful ipod (with a cheap bluetooth transmitter) and it is pretty good. But the quality is much better when using an aux cable – it is warmer, less harsh in the mid range and is easier listening. My son tried some gorillaz to test the bass and it passed the test. I linked it to my ipad and watched a bit of spectre, listened to classical music, electonica and decent heavy rock and it is hard to believe the sound quality. I also tested it against the bose soundlink and i think audio pro t3 is superior. We also have a harman kardon esquire mini and the audio pro t3 makes that sound like a 1960’s transistor radio (although in fairness, it is a much smaller more portable device). Overall, it is a very impressive speaker system, it looks great and has a good build quality feel. So overall lots to love and better than competition.
Fantastic – i normally buy bose but thought i would take a chance on this unit after reading many reviews, do not regret my decision.
Sounds superb with a very long battery life. Bought the pale pink , it’s a very neat size and well made. Can’t praise this speaker enough.
I’m very impressed with the sound of this speaker. I much prefer it to the jbl playlist i also own. The sound is full with a solid sounding bass and tight punchy mids, the highs can get a little harsh at full volume but i hardly ever need to play it at full. I use it with a chromecast audio for multiroom audio and because i prefer the sound of audio over wifi compared to bluetooth, though this speaker still sounds great over bluetooth. Bear in mind if you use tyhe usb port on the back to power a chromecast audio you will need a ground loop noise isolator to get a clean signal, they cost from about £4. The battery lasts well, i’ve only needed to charge it a couple of times since owning it. The enclosure is quite bulky so not a speaker you can throw in your backpack or take on holiday, but great round the house and to take into the garden.

Would have given a 5-star raitng, if the unit had been delivered with a uk/ireland compatible power cord/adapter. Uk, getting it delivered to ireland, one expects a compatible cord. It included two cords, for usa and europe. Other than that, great build, great sound.
Sound is amazing for such a small unit. Ugly though it may be it’s easy to set up and sound quality is excellent.
Just read professional reviews for the sound quality but for my money i prefer it vastly over the over-hyped bass of rival better known speakers. It’s more accurate as a result. Some types of music don’t sit so well with it, but i didn’t want to go massively over 200 quid. I’m sure speakers of double/triple this are better, but this feels a bargain. Heavy though & sharp cornered – so depends on your application.
Extremely robust design and construction. Excellent sound for a bluetooth speaker.
Dead simple to use and the sound is just brilliant.
Sounds great, works great, use it in the campervan.
Extended battery life with playback time up to 30 hours
I’ve been through quite a few of these speaker boxes and this is my favourite. I guess you can’t please everyone, but i would say it may have a tad too much bass. Then again you see, lots of people seem to like that. I like my music pure, and this does that, looks great, lasts a long time on one charge.
I bought this for my son to listen to music while revising for exams (we’ve confiscated his gaming pc). Incredibly impressed by the sound out of this tiny box, the stereo image seems to be 10 times wider than the unit itself and sounds detailed and weighty – not entirely sure how the designers pulled this off. I think this might be an reverse-engineered area 51 product, along with velcro and the evertune guitar bridge. Is this as good as a proper hi-fi separates system?. But it’s way better than it should be for the size.
I don’t often write reviews but i feel like this speaker deserves a glowing report. This speaker is absolutely worth every penny. I had my reservations at first but after reading lots of articles and reviews i decided to take the plunge and buy the audio pro. I had considered more expensive brands but i’m so glad i didn’t waste my money. This speaker not only looks gorgeous, it feels amazing and so well made. It is honestly one of the best purchases i have made from amazon. The sound quality is fantastic and there is no distortion even when i turn it up to maximum volume (sorry neighbours). The battery lasts a ridiculous amount of time and it’s great to be able to move it around the house when cleaning and things. It’s only downside is that it’s a little chunky so not ideal for someone who wants a speaker for on the go, but it’s perfect for use around the house or garden. I even took it on a camping trip and didn’t need to charge it despite using 3 nights in a row.
Difficult to fault this product – very good sound quality as i expected from all the reviews i had read (the separate woofers produce a rich sound which is very different from the one produced by the other ‘boxy’ wireless/bluetooth speakers i already have). However, i did not know i was buying such a beautiful object. The control buttons, the leather handle and the retro look all contribute to the refinement of this product. Too heavy to carry around in a bag or a suitcase, it is not a speaker you really want to take on holiday with you; however, it is perfect to use at home as you can easily move it from one room to another.
I really cannot fault this speaker. It’s perfect for my needs. Good sound,easy to use and good quality build. For its price range it’s excellent.
Did quite a bit of research (considered marshall kilburn and harman kardon) before choosing this one. I was bought a bluetooth record player for christmas so wanted a decent speaker to enjoy it through and wasn’t disappointed with my choice. I went with the t3 over the t5 because the t3 has a battery which makes it ideal to move around the house. I can play the record in the living room and take the speaker to the office upstairs and it still keeps connection. Sounds really good playing mp3s too. I stream amazon music through it. There is good bass and ‘warmth’ to the music and the vocals are clear too. At £149 (reduced from £199) i don’t think you can find a better speaker in this price range.
Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity.
Excellent sound and battery life. Feels very robust with broad leather strap and big fixing points. Im happy to use it in the garage without worrying i might damage it.
The nearest thing to proper hi-fi sound i have come across in a bluetooth speaker. Great tight bass, a full sound with controlled top end. Great battery life, loud enough to fill my garden during a barbeque. Looks good, nice and solid design. I am a bit of a picky audiophile but this i really like.
Recommendation and couldn’t be happier a balanced sound with clarity that you can’t beat for the price. For the price, you can’t beat it. Also got the pink one and the pastel pink is incredibly retro, if you’re not sure about it then go for it, you won’t regret it.
Fantastic speaker, easily pairs with any device and the quality at volume is unsurpassed in a speaker of this size and price. Weighs around 2kgs and easy to carry around with the natty little leather strap. I’ve paired it with a fiio x-5ii and it renders very nicely. The battery lasts very well, longer than the device playing.
Summarystraight out of the box it sounds like a cheap boom box; horribleafter about 25 hours it produced a well balanced, solid and natural sound underpinned by its prodigious and well controlled bass. Excells with classical, jazz and acoustic. Modern music can have an unnatural bass boost and high energy music can sound a bit polite. Makes the best of all music formats from mp3 to cd quality lossless but probably overkill if you listen to a lot of mp3. Big issue with sound is lack of projection into the room so you are always aware of the sound emenating from a little box. A few niggles with its design and usability. My one hums horribly when connecting a device for charging. Packaged without a uk mains leadbottom linenot up to the rave reviews in the press. But still a good sound for the price. Worth a try but you may have to endure the first 25 hours.
This speaking is fantastic sound and base and i ordered colour pink lovely soft pink and quality speaker highly recommend to buy well worth the money.
I purchased the t3 last month, ending a three week search for my next family room speaker. My requirements, aside from sound quality and bluetooth connectivity, were portability and an auxiliary input. I can honestly say i am delighted with my purchase. The sound quality is excellent. Not just excellent for a small speaker, but excellent against some larger, big brand rivals. The design of the speaker is aesthetically pleasing and the build satisfyingly solid. It looks great on the side board in our family room. So far, i have used the t3 exclusively as a wired speaker, hooked up to a chromecast audio and so i cannot speak for battery life. That said, portability was an important part of my decision and come next summer, i am sure the t3 will be making regular trips with us out into the garden. An excellent purchase and if your requirements mirror mine, then the t3 is well worth considering.
25 watts of power with advanced DSP processing
The audio pro addon t3 is a rather good compromise between portability and sound quality. It’s small enough to pack into a bag, but large enough to pack in some clever electronics and speakers. No one would expect to get pounding bass out of a box this small but the t3 reproduces some of the lower frequencies rather well. The mid range is good at reproducing instruments and voices quite realistically. The higher frequencies though are not so well reproduced, just ok. But overall the sound is very good for the price. Likes are: the bluetooth is very slick and once paired will connect automatically when switched back on; it’s easy to carry around; the speakers are protected by metal grilles to prevent damage; battery life is good with auto switch-off to save battery. Dislikes; volume control is a bit clunky but liveable with (and it can be controlled from your phone/tablet anyway); sound is good but not quite there at higher frequencies. But then i listen to a £10k plus system at home so maybe have higher expectations than others. Overall though i’m very pleased with the purchase.
I did a lot of research before pulling the trigger on this purchase. Have listened to a few outstanding bt speakers/radios over the last 6 months, esp. From bose and ruark where i was drawn in to the sound quality above everything else. In the end i got a great deal on the addon t3. After pairing it to my galaxy s7 phone i spent an afternoon listening to absolute radio, just flicking through the stations to hear how my favourite tracks would sound on the speaker. I was blown away by the quality of the audio. And i can just pick the speaker up and take it with me to another room. There is plenty of volume and after 8 hours of listening i still have all 3 bars on the battery indicator lit. It is very minimalistic and stylish in the grey finish too. All in all, one of the most satisfying purchases i have made in quite some time.
Good speaker with surprising sound quality.
A really nice sound on this box. Probably not that punchy and deep bass as on jbl charge 3 but keep in mind that this is more like an indoor speaker, not really for outdoor usage. Either way, i prefer a more clear sound with a nice balance between trebles mids and lows rather than having just a boomy speaker. One downside is that this product does not offer an app to be able to start it from your phone. You always need to move to the speaker and start it. Another downside is that volume is not synced with the device so max on the speaker doesn’t mean max volume on your phone. Overall, really great sound, well balanced, punchy bass with no distortion and listening music multiple hours does not hurt your ears like charge 3 where you might get bored on that powerful bass that covers the rest of the notes. Hi-fi sound and quality build speaker with lots of battery inside. Look also really great in my room on my furniture and quite easy to take it around the house or outside for a bbq. Indeed stereo separation is not that good but i prefer this soundstage, the sound is focused in front of the speaker rather than dispersed all over around.
Great sound with excellent battery life. I use this speaker as a stand alone for outside and also in partnership with its big brother a t10 with a chromecast to link them.
This is a fantastic product, a sound which you do not think you could get from such a small box, it’s heavy and feels well built, i feel that this is worth every penny and i play it everyday, and the charge lasts for ages. The best thing of quality i have bought for years.
Easy to use and portable!
Lovely sound, loud, punchy, surprisingly rich sound. Unfortunately the battery died and won’t hold a charge after one year. About to contact them to enquire about a replacement. Update: i had my unit repaired, but sadly, the unit broke again. However, for all other users, i’d suggest you never let it run out of charge. Once that happened, my unit was dead. Damned lovely sound when it worked. My chum has just bought himself one.
Fantastic sound and has great quality. I use it everywhere including in a convertible classic car as its cheaper and better quality to use this than fit a new auto audio system. It looks very retro and simple, but the sound is amazing and very easy to use and connect by bluetooth.
However, the product did not come as shown in the pictures. The white speaker has a black handle rather than a tan leather. A little disappointed with this mis-selling.
I read a hi-fi magazine review that rated these better than the bose. They are outstanding, i use them to enhance sound on my tv and to play music from my phone. The battery lasts forever and has never run down on me. Sound is top notch for an average ear like mine.
Marvellous sound quality and very stylish look to it. Very easy to pair with phone and use.
Had a similar problem to a previous buyer. Sound and range is fantastic but the fault occured when the system was turned off. While the battery light went off, the system carried on with a faint light on either bluetooth or aux and an audible click which eventually ran the battery out. Update: dropped a message to planet gizmo (the seller) and general manager robert cooper came straight back and took care of the return and very quick replacement from audio pro including picking up the shipping bill, well done planet gizmo. New product is working perfectly. Audio pro are investigating the issue and will look to create a fix.
I’ve just set up a home office and i always have music on in the background when i’m working. Generally i’ll be listening to movie soundtracks which meant i need something with really decent top notes and a decent base. Spent an age looking around at what to get and had settled on a denon bluetooth speaker. Then i looked again, and found this one more by chance than anything. Tried out some random selections from my itunes library as soon as it was charged – bear’s den, nat king cole, daft punk, beethoven. Settled on the ost for bladreunner 2049 and am really chuffed with the quality of the sound. The battery has lasted for over three days without recharging at the moment, playing podcasts and music, and although bigger and heavier than many others it’s very portable nonetheless. The wired connection is good, and the bluetooth hasn’t dropped off once. Plus, i have to say, it’s beautiful so you actually leave it out on show.
I spent a long time debating which bluetooth speaker to buy but after visiting a bose store settled on this one. A couple of people i know have bought the same speaker after hearing minepros:excellent sound quality, truly delivers so much more than i expected from something of this size. One thing i was concerned about was the quality at higher volumes, and whether the speaker would go loud enough. I’ve never listened anywhere near maximum volume, it would deafen me. Looks greatcharges my phone – i thought this would be useful when camping but not much otherwise, turns out i use loads around the house so the battery doesn’t get drained with listening to music. Cons:the finish looks quite tatty quite quicklythe heavily textured surface is difficult (impossible) to clean, i’ve taken to chucking a teatowel over it in the kitchen. Points of note:the bluetooth is erratic but it could well be my phone. Speaker must be on to be used as a battery packlarger and heavier than many other bluetooth speakers, but still light enough to easily carry round the house with arms full of laundry, and small enough that it can perch on the corner of the bath.
