This set of stereo speakers performs much better than anticipated. They come with two connection leads, one much longer than the other, to aid stereo separation. Whether connected via bluetooth or wired, the bass is good for the size, and the mids and treble are very pleasing too. I am very fussy about audio and i am extremely happy with this set. Indeed, august are also the people behind the ep650 headphones, which are also brilliant and very affordable. Do not hesitate in choosing this set of speakers.
Very impressed by the sound produced by these excellent little speakers. As many have said, the volume and clarity is surprising given the size and price and the use of an equaliser app can add a bit more bass to the sound, if required. Build quality seems excellent and battery life easily matches the 15 hours quoted. All in all, i’m very happy and have ordered more for family members, who were more than impressed when i demoed mine.
I bought these back in early 2016 at a bargain price of £27. They are used in the kitchen and connect quickly and easily to whichever tablet or phone i am using. They really do push out the sound and at good quality for their size. I am now using them with an amazon echo dot as well and alexa finds them easily. All in all they are great speakers and are probably still good value at the current higher price.

Comments from buyers
“Don’t Look Any Further!
, Great little speakers with surprisingly good audio
, Unbelievably good quality bargain speakers.
Simple to use via bluetooth or can connect using headphone/speaker socket.
Charging and set up is easy. Paired with 2 separate phones and works well with both. Good sound quality and long cable allows for good separation.
These are really good little speakers. I only bought them because i had bought a daffodil folding keyboard for my phone and got a £10 off voucher for these. Impressed with the keyboard and seeing how cheap these were i bought them even though i have no need for them whatsoever. I wasn’t expecting much but was hopeful after the kyboard. They are fairly small but with a solid feel and weight, and look good with black nice tactile black plastic with some nice finishing and rubber strips on the bottom. Well packaged, feel premium. They come with some nice rubberised flat cables. One is a dual micro usb, gave them a charge with the special dual usb micro cable and once done connected them together via the red sockets on the back for stereo. The master one will work on it’s own as a decent sounding standalone, but for proper stereo you connect them together. Don’t make the mistake i did and use the aux input cable you get with them to try and connect the two speakers as the connecting cables are different and are colour coded with red collars to identify them.
Nice, chunky little speakers. Good clear sound, but not as much base as might be hoped, but they are small. Would prefer speakers without glowing lights and a charge cable that went from one speaker to the other and not a separate cable from the source to each would be a lot less cable mess. At the price i paid however, should not be making any negative comments.
I was so impressed with these speakers (ms515) that i purchased a second pair. The original pair are in our garden room and make listening to music or the radio an absolute blast. The second set are connected to my imac and are pleasing me no end. I am currently being pulled towards purchasing a pair of totally wireless bluetooth speakers from daffodil i. No connecting cable between the speakers.
My friend and i saw a more expensive brand in america, she bought hers i just thought i could get a cheaper brand and have it delivered in the uk and thats what i did. These speakers are so loud it covers my two bed flat and its much cheaper than any fancy brand speakers.
The august ms515 portable bluetooth 2-speaker system is a seriously impressive unit. It pairs easily with smartphone, tablet, i-pod and computerand is very user friendly. The sound quality is excellent and certainly punches above its weight for such a compact item. At the price point it is probably unbeatable.
Small and powerful enough for use when gaming, listening to tv, videos etc. Don’t expect your full on music surround sound but they are easy to set up and they look good.
These are first-rate quality for the price. Our 7 year old tv set had developed crackly speakers especially at bass. . Installing these portable ones has resolved that and therefore extended the life of the set itself. A highly cost-effective solution for us.
Excellent speakers, great build quality and very, very good sound. If i have to be honest the adx speaker i bought my daughter last christmas has slightly better treble, but the sound quality of these is still up there at almost half the price. To answer a question here you can play the master speaker on it’s own via bluetooth without connecting the cable and second speaker.
Bought these for my son at uni. Tried them first with a bit of led zep. I’m deaf in one ear but they still sounded very good. They have a quality feel about them. Asking for a pair myself for my birthday.
I love these speakers, crystal clear and good volume and base, easy to use, great value, solid dough, not plenty cheapness.
If you like stereo music then they are good for the price. However first pair soon developed a fault with the main speaker not working. Second pair arrived next day. Supplied with 2 separate length connection cables depending on how far you want them placed apart. Also has a handy charger cable allowing both speakers to charge at the same time. There is also an auxiliary cable so you can plug into the mike socket on the tv etc. Good sound quality for size.
These were a great surprise. Excellent sound quality and very solid build these speakers immediately linked to my ipad for great stereo listening in my study. I’d never heard of the august brand before and i was sceptical when i bought them, but not any more.
Brilliant they do exactly what it says on the tin. Not incredibly loud but certainly loud enough; so portable which makes them easy to transfer from gadget to gadget room to room; very cute, smart looking piece of kit; so simple to set very affordable.
I got these originally to put either side of my bed so that i can play my noise app (sleepo) at night to block out the howling kids and screaming dogs 🙂 for that it works extremely well. I was quite surprised and pleased to find that the speakers also play music very well, with a good bass and excellent audio overall. Playing radio caroline through them (from the phone app) sounds really good. The batteries seem to last quite a while and don’t take too long to recharge. The only (very) slight niggle is that although the connecting lead is more than long enough to place the speakers either side of my double bed, the charging lead (a single usb2 to twin mini-usb) isn’t, so one of the speakers has to be moved over to the other one for charging. I could probably sort this out with either longer leads or by providing a separate charger for one of them, but it is not enough of a nuisance to bother with.
These are a complete surprise and the quality is brilliant. So pleased i purchased them.
I don’t write many reviews, but had to for these; these speakers are amazing. They look so sleek and stylish, fantastically well made. I love that there’s two; a nice symmetry, but also fantastic sound. I’ve been using them for about a fortnight and am amazed at the sound quality from such little speakers. I want to buy everyone them for christmas. I paid £25 ish for them delivered, with a code off the manufacturers facebook page. Best value of anything i’ve purchased in a long time.
They do a great job in all around, but out of the box they sounded pretty flat (in my case) so i figured i needed equalzing/dsp (digital signal processing) to get them to their maximum potential, it’s built in most devices that your’e going to use the speakers with so its not going to be a problem. After i tweaked the speakers with dsp on my smartphone, mainly to enhance to bass and midrange, they output amazing, well balanced sound and they can get pretty loud too, without any distortion. Battery life so far is great using the aux wired solution. I used them with my tv, with the speakers set to around 50% volume, i did not turn them off and they lasted almost 2 days. Of course they were not active 48 hours, but i’d say they were active around 17 hours+ and on stand-by around 31 hours. I havent tested them with bluetooth from full to flat battery yet, so i cant say for sure how good they are there, but based on how long they last with aux, and knowing it requires a little more juice to run them with bluetooth, it wouldn’t surprise me if they live up to the 15 hour specification, or even exceed it. Great small speakers for all around use, i highly recommend them.
I bought these speakers for a christmas present this year. They are to be used with a bluetooth mp3 player. We have been using a bluetooth sound bar which is a good sound. You dont get many speakers as two that are bluetooth, so i thought i would try them before giving at christmas and then bang what a fantasic sound for such small speakers, great base and treble. There was no problem pairing at all,they look cool aswell. I would highly recommend them to anyone buying them.
I was a bit skeptical at first if they would be powerful. But i was pleasently surprised at the bass power and clarity through the jack extention cable, the bluetooth connection is seamless too. However if your thinking this has seperate bluetooth connectivity. The main speaker is connected via another jack cable into the second which gives you the 2. But like i said the sound quality trumps the misunderstanding that both speakers will be individually bluetooth enabled.
