August MS515 5 W Wireless Stereo Speakers – Four Stars

Great build and sound quality for the price. Neat little speakers that are just right for enhancing the sound while i binge on box sets on amazon prime on my ipad. No technical ability required what so ever to set them up. Very pleased with my purchase.

These are fantastic i’ve bought my son some for university and he loves them. Superb sounds use with ipad iphone and tv.

I bought these for my wife to use with spotify on her phone. They are solidly built and fairly easy to set up and produce pretty good sound for small speakers.

Absolutely great buy, i have other bluetooth speaker but these connected so quickly. The sound is superb for the size of the speakers.

I’m always skeptical about bluetooth speakers. And i have to say i’m very impressed my these. I own a htc one m8 mobile phone, which is renowned for its audio output. At max volume it usually distorts any speaker i plug into it. These speakers kept perfect clarity and great bass response at highest level of volume. For the price point they will be very hard to beat. I’m very impressed and hope they stand the test of time. Intend to use them very frequently.

Fab speaker, bought the bluetooth transmitter and headphones too – great package.

  • Great sounding compact speakers
  • Wow! Small Speakers MASSIVE sound!
  • Worth every penny!

Simple design but very powerful. Wired them up to connect and paired with iphone and was already to go. The sound quality is excellent with deep base surprising from the sizei received this item free from a review site for my honest review.

  i’ve had several items over the months from august and i’ve been very pleased with what i’ve experienced with them so far. I needed a soundbar/speaker solution for my tv since i’ve wall mounted it and was looking to these to fulfil that role. Unfortunately due to the construct of the speaker, they are not really suitable in the way i was hoping they would be. Not their fault, they just aren’t made for what i wanted to do with them. I’m reviewing then as desk speakers. Most of my points of view are shown in the video but here’s a few basic points of summary. They are lovely looking speakers and much more stylish than most of the bluetooth speakers i have which mainly tend to be more rugged than pretty. They come with a good selection of cables to add versatility to their placement. I decided eventually to place one either side of the bed and the 3mtr joining cable was more than long enough to accommodate that. Sound-wise they are not bad, with a pretty well rounded sound and the presence of bass is certainly there but two things slightly marred that for me.

Brilliant speakers sound quality is amazing that’s why i bought a second pair and good value for money and easy to set up.

These speakers are better than what i was expecting, i use them for my mobile phone and connect through wifi, this set of speakers has amazing bass as well. I am extremely impressed and happy with this product. It came in great packaging and shipped quickly. I received this product for free in return for an unbiased and honest review.

 inside the box are the usb charging cable, one wire to connect speakers to the computer (coloured black), two cables to connect the speakers together, the two speakers and an instruction manual. The item comes well packaged and the instructions are easy to read though the pictures of the speakers are too monotone that you can’t see what the instructions are pointing to. Setting up the speakers will take you roughly three to four minutes to set up. The sound from the speakers is good quality and clear. There’s a function on the main speaker (multi function button), which allows you to switch between music with the original playing device. Connecting the device to the phone or the computer was easy, the bluetooth was easily detected by both devices and i was playing music straight away. The two speakers cannot work independently, they need to be connected together. This was the only downside i could find. I found the item to be good quality make and great sound with ease of use. These are great pair of bluetooth speakers.

Very good speakers,working well,small and compact well done to august a+++.

I got these speakers as the speakers on my tv aren’t loud enough and sound very tinny. Not having the money to buy a sound bar and the other speakers that connect i looked through and found these two beauties. . Just within my budget i thought i’d give them a go. They magically take over as the tv speakers and are plugged in to the usb on the back (to charge them) and the headphone socket. The difference that they have made are 100% better. I can hear the everything that i’m supposed to once again, the treble and bass are particular impressive. Cannot fault them and would recommend them highly.

Speakers arrived in good time. Its nice to have stereo again. I have a jbl bluetooth speaker and that’s good too, but to get the stereo effect makes listening much more pleasurable.

Excellent speakers for the money, can’t fault them at all.

I was delighted with these speakers. Superb quality and very prompt delivery.

I use this pair in my camper van and love them so much have ordered another set for in the house.

Music can inspire, soothe and lift your mood if it sounds great.

Good sound quality,look smart and stylish and have some weight to them so feel good quality. Bluetooth is easy to connect too. Cant go wrong for the price. I received this item at a discount in exchange for a review.

They do the job they are supposed to do.

The battery is really long lasting and they are so loud – can’t wait for our beach party now. It’ll be great and i know that all my friends are going to want to buy these.They look super snazzy on my bedside table too.

Surprisingly full bodied sound – enough (though not a lot) of bass, clear mids and highs. Very useful to be able to separate them therefore create wider soundstage. I am using them mostly for watching video and they perform above my expectations. Battery life is very very good.

Solid little speakers for the money. These are being used in the garden (covered area) and they sound great. No need to spend a lot of money when these do the job. There are a lot of wires when charging as well but these are out of sight on a raised shelf. Glad i went with the other positive reviews. The sound will not blow you away in terms of volume but it is clear and still loud enough to be heard anywhere in the garden. Update approx 1 month later. I have been forced to return these speakers. The issue is the buzzing when they are plugged in to charge.

Have a couple of single bluetooth speakers (both of which i bought on the recommendations i read on amazon), and found them to be fabulous but just wanted more of a stereo sound in my study so purchased these. Great price, sturdy speakers, look good and sound amazing. What more can you ask for the money. Certainly wouldn’t bother to buy any of the ‘top of the’ range speakers as these do the job and then some. I use mine with my ipad and my samsung galaxy note with no problems at all.

Surrounded by stereo sound, movies are brought to life putting you in the action on TV.

Great item many thanks, these are fantastic, my laptop volume was pitiful, now i got good volume and the sound quality is very decent too.

As a dj and producer, i wasn’t expecting great things out of these little speakers, but i had a £10 off voucher for them and an itchy trigger finger. So i bought them on an impulse. To keep it simple, there’s not a huge amount of bass on these things, but what they do very well is fill a space with clear, crisp sound. Tried them out in the back garden and they were fantastic. For the price, these are top notch for the beach, garden, bedroom or where-ever you need portable music. Very please with this impulse buy and recommending them to all and sundry.

I already have these in black to go with my black tv in the spare room but needed some in white for my bedroom. These are smart, tidy, have decent length cables and look good either side of the freesat box. The only downside in the bedroom are the bright blue light lights on them which are bright enough to illuminate the room but easily solved with a bit of white tape (and black on the others).

Great and easy to set up considering their price. Great sound and they’re small and good looking.

Got these on the prime day deal to add a bit of depth to the tv sound for a bedroom. The units themselves are very compact but seem well made and finished, and do sound pretty good for the price with both tv/movies and music. Some types of music cause the speakers to ‘over reach’ but this really isn’t a negative in terms of the value, and they are really quite good with movies via my little dac. Pros:lookssound for moviesprice (prime deal)cons:fiddly to setupshort usb cablevolume control on unit is poor, would have been much better as a simple volume knobon/off switches stiff.

This is the 2nd set i’ve bought and extremely pleased with these powerful little speakers and the 5 star applies to these, unfortunately the first set i bought sat in my drawer for about a year as i couldn’t get them up and running, so i considered myself a bit of an idiot until a young lad with a lot more knowledge than me and between us discovered that i had a duff speaker. These speakers hardly took any time at all to get up and running. Just a note when not using, turn off, as they need charging a lot more, obviously.

I was hopeful that with the reviews i had read, i would be pleased with the quality and sound quality of these little speakers. I have only had them a few days, and i am yet to see if they are durable and how the battery life is, but the sound quality is very good. Because of the weight of them, they can really handle base, but also with more meditative, ambient music the sound is really clear. I have bought them for my yoga classes and they are compact, but will offer a really good level of sound. I am very pleased with these little speakers, well worth the money (so far).

Bring the difference between music from mobile and true stereo sound wherever you go.

The build of these speakers is superb, feels and looks very high quality built with a nice matt black finish which is pleasant to feel as well. The speakers are definitely not made of some cheap plastic like other cheap bluetooth speakers. The speakers are very easy to use, you just pick what link cable you want either the short or the long one and you connect them up then you have an option to either play music through bluetooth or aux (sadly optical isnt an option). The speakers are loud and very cleari highly recommend these speakers but if they had an optical input that would be amazingi purchased this product at a promotional discount to test and give my honest opinion on it.

Great little set of speakersthe speakers are tiny but have a nice weight to them, they come in box that it very well laid out so if you chose to use the box to keep them from getting damaged when taking the speakers out with you everything will fit back in very easy, they also come with different size leads which is very handy, i use the short lead in my tv room and i’v set up the long lead in my bedroom so i can just unplug the speakers in one room and plug them straight back in without having to drag wires with me. They are a lot louder than what you would expect from such little speakers. The bass it ok but what else would you expect from such tiny speakers. We watch a film with the speakers plugged in to the tv and the sound wasn’t that bad, they definitely sounded better than the built in tv speakersi also tried them plugged in to the tv when england was playing and to be honest the tv speakers sounded a lot better than these, so on films they sounded great but for footy not so greatthe bluetooth works well, connect without any problems, i say i can get about 8m away before the sound start to break up but as soon as you walk back in range everything works perfectly. Overall i think you would be hard pushed trying to get better speakers for the same price as these, worth every penny.

Speakers do what i wanted them for and they are worth the money i paid.

Very compact, great sound and all round loveliness. My only issue was that the cables weren’t labelled and are identical in all but length so it took a little trial and error to work out which was which. So far i have absolutely no complaints.

Had some little speakers before but they didn’t have such power and deep bass like these. They have a nice design, so they fit to almost any style and can blend with the furniture. The cables are long, so you can place them far from each other and enjoy the stereo sound. They are very loud, also for big rooms. Not to exaggerate, but they can easily work as mini cinema set as well. Beyond easy to connect them with any device, old or new. If only there was an option to connect 4 of those, i’d definitely buy another pair.

Delivered exactly as described. The speakers were connected to my devices in a very straight forward manner and provide the quality of sound i was seeking.

Grab your audience’s attention with clear crisp audio to support your professional presentation.

Good speakers but not a lot of bass but you cant expect a lot from speakers of this size,but a good update for laptops ipads etc. One thing i find irritating is fiddly switches at the back.

Nice little speakers, which i bought to accompany a small samsung tv i recently purchased. Sound is more than adequate for a bedroom tv with enough bass to make action films worthwhile. Big improvement over internal tv speakers. They are also very neat and in white, don stand out at all (important for my wife). They are powered via a usb, and since the tv has a spare powered usb port, it works fine. 5mm cable to hook the speakers up to the headphone socket, which worked perfectly. Butwhen we turned the tv to go to sleep, the speakers would start to emit a surprising loud buzzing noise, which could only be stopped by switching each of the speakers off individually using the fiddly like stitch on the back of each. Really annoying, when all you want to do is to turn over and go to sleep, when instead you have to get out of bed, often in darkness, and do battle with the silly things. I have seen this as common complain about the speakers.

  1. This review is from : August MS515 5 W Wireless Stereo Speakers with Bluetooth, Speaker Cable and Rechargeable Internal Battery (Pack of 2)

    I haven’t yettried using these speakers on batteries but other than that, i’m very happy with them. It took a while, and several attempts at pairing them with my mac – but that was probably more to do with my own technical ineptitude than any fault of the speakers. I’ve put them in my kitchen, but whilst pairing i had them within line-of-sight of my computer. Amsince then they have performed perfectly; i have them playing at the same time as my living room speakers and there’s no lag. I intend to get another pair.

    • Bought these recently, and although the sound is good there is a connectivity problem. About once every hour the signal breaks and becomes disrupted. You have to turn them off and on again. But after asking the seller about it they told me that i’d have to return it (by post) and they would look at it and decide if there’s a problem or not. Not a very fair deal for the customer. Normally if there’s something wrong with the product the seller trusts the customer on this. What would i possibly gain from lying about it?.

    • Had to return it, as soon as i received i tried and noticed the buzzing sound when not used. That’s very annoying for me so i returned. It’s well build speakers for the size and it’s only good for computer or laptop, don’t expect too much.

    A rare moment for me to write a review, but it might help someone as the speakers are quite unusual. Just so you know, i bought these to make my echo dot play music a bit better in the living/dining room. I didn’t appreciate how small they would be, they sit comfortably on your hand (probably just your palm) and look very plastic and shiny, but heavier than you might imagine. They have a y-shaped usb cable to provide power to each and a 3. You may even need to plug your sound source in, so in the end there is a lot of cable for two tiny speakers. The surprise is how reasonable they sound for something so small, placed in corners the bass is not as bad as you would expect and overall the sound quality is quite reasonable. However, plugging in usb power while playing makes them hum and then there’s a hiss that predominates in quiet moments. If they didn’t have all the extra hiss and buzz i would have tried to ignore all the cables and kept them, but it pushed me over the edge and back they went. So alexa needs something else.
