Mission LX-2 Bookshelf Speaker – Wood – Great detail in the sound

Very nice piece of kit, extremely well packaged and very easy to put together, nice height and look great with my bronze 2’s on, well worth the dosh.

Had missions before, from the argonaut to other bookshelf ones. These lx-2s really deliver for the size and price.

The sound is impressive – clear treble and a deep well controlled bass. Need at least 100 hours to break in. Good match with marantz pm 6005. Very pleased with my purchase and recommend them highly.

Pleased with purchase- thanks.

Sounds great straight out of the box. Pleasantly surprised at how it fills a normal size room. Can’t comment on durability so soon after buying.

Very good price performance speakers! amazing buying experience with amazon!.

  • Superb quality pair of stands.
  • Great bass and good mids for the physical size
  • Outclasses the oppositio

My son says they are excellent.

Had for a few months now can’t fault them very good value for money.

Really nice budget speakers. They replaced some 40 year old wharfedale xp2s in a small studio.

Good solid and compact speakers – links v well with my small denon player.

These speakers are better than twice the price speakers – i know as i’ve been there.

From the manufacturer

Mission LX Series

Mission LX Series

Mission LX Series

Mission Electronics was founded in 1977 by Farad Azima and was immediately recognised as one of the leaders in the development of acoustic engineering.

Mission quickly became a very popular hi-fi brand and earned an enviable reputation for the design and manufacture.

The Award-Winning Series

For the LX Series, the design has been stripped back to its fundamentals and Mission has focused on producing a range of speakers they are proud of in engineering terms.

We can be even more proud in terms of the enjoyment their owners will experience. These speakers are smart, practical and affordable, sporting a sharp, classic but modern look in keeping with Mission’s customary design focus.

They bring performances to life with all the vibrancy and finesse one expects of Mission speakers.

Advanced Technology and Design

Advanced Technology and Design

Drive Unit Positioning and Integration

Brute Strength

Advanced Driver Design

High frequency drive units require extremely consistent parts which, together with Mission’s extremely consistent manufacturing, can deliver the performance required.

Given the tiny moving masses involved, one extra micro-drop of high-tech adhesive can destroy the balance of the design, thus affecting sensitivity and frequency response.

For the LX Series, Mission has carefully designed a tweeter with a neodymium magnet for maximum force in a small space, together with a 25mm microfibre dome chosen for its repeat-ability and consistency in manufacture.

It delivers a sweet sounding but incisive upper frequency as required.

Drive Unit Positioning and Integration

In traditional Mission style, the stand-mount LX-1 and LX-2’s tweeter is positioned below the mid/bass drive unit, in order to aid time-alignment.

By placing the treble unit lower than ear level, the path length from the treble unit to the listener is longer than that of the mid/bass unit. As the treble unit dome is physically forward of the mid/bass unit cone, the difference in path length helps to equalise the acoustic distance.

Similarly, the LX-3 and LX-4 floor-standers position the tweeter between the mid/bass drivers in a ‘d’appolito’ configuration, rather than above both drive in conventional fashion.

The three-way LX-5 is optimised by the HF unit being positioned below the mid-range driver and above the bass driver.

Brute Strength

While high performance mid/bass and treble units are the foundation of a great sounding speaker, if the cabinet is not properly reinforced it can be an unruly source of unwanted noise.

Extensive research and development was carried out to ensure internal cabinet robustness, eliminating any unwanted cabinet resonances and vibrations. Using a combination CAD analysis, a lot of experimentation and extensive listening tests the cabinet within each speaker has been braced at key points which means the full frequency range is clear and detailed.

The diagram shows areas of bracing and its effect on the sound. Blue areas show where noise is reduced through cabinet bracing, while red areas highlight where there is sound. As you can see, the sound is emanating from the drivers and not from the cabinet, as it should be.

These speakers are incredible. My old speakers were old sony bookshelfs from the 90s and these are a mind blowing upgrade. So much more bass, much better clarity across the range.

Can’t find anything better in this price range.

Looks the part and sounds the part, from thrash metal, death metal and classical.

Excellent product, these are easy to assemble and look very nice. Note the price is for 2 stands, while it was not clear from the product description. I bought 2 pairs, while thinking i’m only buying 1 pair, yet liked them so decided not to return the extra ones.

Very good speakers for the price. I can see why they came second in ‘what hifi’ 2017’s survey.

I tried these at the same time as the diamond 9. 1s and have to say there is no contest. The deep warm bass is amazing.

AWARD 2017: Best HiFi Speaker Under £1,000 from AVForums

Good build quality, great sound and compliments the rest of our setup.

One top plate not flat, i had to shim slightly to level the speaker. However for the money they look fantastic and a great purchase.

Very well made and sturdy stands for smaller speakers.

Strong, classy looking, quite heavy but not stupidly.

Exactly the sound i wanted, with the look and great build quality.

I would definitely recommend these speakers for the price the look and sound great.

A TRULY MUSICAL PERFORMANCE: Full frequence range for a clear and detailed sound

Fantastic and look fantastic from any angle.

I’ve just received these and they are so impressive for the money. Used on a dedicated vinyl system with a kef sub for a powerful lower-bottom end. Not as ‘forward’ sounding as my b&w floor-standers and much clearer than any missions i’ve had in the past. A very easy, enjoyable listen that doesn’t become tiring at volume.

Arrived quickly and in perfect condition. Assembly was easy and they look really fantastic. Solid, heavy metal material throughout with a really nice matt finish.

Very smooth and stylish speakers, look good and sound good.

This was a present and my son in law was very pleased with them.

A quick note – this is for a pair of stands, not just one, despite the product descriptionbought to accommodate my q acoustics 3010s (the bespoke stands cost £100 compared to these, which cost £59 at time of purchase). They arrive packaged superbly – each component wrapped and sleeved individually in cardboard – and couldn’t be easier or more satisfying to put together. The plates and legs are solid, and the shiny metal floor spikes are beautifully engineered. The cable management is ok – personally i would prefer an exit hole through the base rather than leave a cable trailing across the plate – but aside from that, they are superb. The sound from the speakers is immediately, noticeably better, and of course positioning at ear level when sitting is perfect (they stand at about 60cm). Seriously impressed, glad i opted for these.

Fabulous speakers,a real return to form. Superb sound with excellent bass and clear vocals. The speaker size is compact in height and width but is failrly deep. I have spent a good couple of months trying to decide wether to buy these or not,so glad that i did. For the price these missions are an absolute bargain.

ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY AND DESIGN: 25mm Microfibre Dome Tweeter + 130mm advanced fibre bass driver + Linear Excursion Woofer + Proprietary Cone Material

I got these to sit my wharfdale diamond 220’s on. I got everything out and started to assemble the stands everything went smooth until i got to the floor spikes. One of the spikes would not thread onto its post i tried one of the other spikes and it threaded onto the post fine. I had a look at the threads on the spike that i could not screw down first few cuts were shallow and poor. I’m was lucky i own a tap and die set with the correct tap for the spike. I ran the tap down the spike and then i could thread it on no bothers. I would not normally knock off 2 stars for this but considering the price i would expect better.

I love them can hear so much more in diffrent bits of music. Easy to drive with a amplifier i picked up for £50 second hand. I found positioning is easy i had them pushed up on the back wall, then just pulled them out a bit and was blown away by the bass these can put out. Ideally, you should put them on the stands as they sound so much better, i have them on my computer desk at ear level. I do not have much spacing on my desk but they still sound fantastic. These speakers time well too. Best speakers i have listened to for under £200 wouldhighly recommend.

No improvement on my mx1 mission speakers. Disappointed, expected more. Bass not controlled as well and integration inferior. Not worth replacing, maybe need to spend more.

These sound fantastic, i only have a small room and set them up yesterday, so far i would say i am very very pleased, records sound so much better, they look good, easy to connect, and work great with my old pioneer amp sa540, i almost bought the wharfdale diamond speakers but changed my mind at the last minute, these were cheaper and i like the design more.

Has transformed my surround sound – dialogue clear and crisp for the first time ever.

Sold stands for my monitor audio bronze series bookshelf speakers. It’s unclear/impossible to fill the stands, as per the product description through.

REINFORCED CABINET FOR BRUTE STRENGTH: eliminates any unwanted resonances and vibrations

Make a real difference now my speakers are at a sensible height (previously on the floor). Easy to assemble and all tools required included.

Wow,the sound quality of these speakers is truly superb,the amount of bass is mind blowing,the treble sounds so sweet. Best suited to use with decent floor stands,if placed on a shelf,use rubber isolating feet. For the money,you wont find better.

I bought these for my son – i have audiophile quality ones in our loft – the quality of them is amazing highs and mids are excellent. Slightly subdued bass but £ for buck these are amazing – high quality for low cost.

Excellent sound field c/w consistent response and performance throughout the range. Will purchase mission subwoofer 🔊 during 2018highly recommended.

Great speakers , good bass, cohesive soundtop quality and look good in living room.

Excellent sound, well built, great heritage. Used to own missions growing up. Always second hand, thought i would treat myself to a new pair. Most sellers on ebay wanted collection only. For the price i think these speakers are excellent value. I have a 100 watt amp that powers these.

A cracking pair of speakers at the lower end of the price range. I put them into my conservatory serviced by a 55w p/c technics su7300 amplifier. Great bass and good mids for the physical size, although top end lacking slightly. Performance does improve over a couple of weeks as the speakers bed in. Great value for money speaker.

A great sounding speaker good base black sabbath +zeppelin have come to life brilliant.

These small speakers sound fantastic. They are powered by an old nad 3120 amp and are used to stream high quality music. They sound great and have no problems when the volume is turned up high. The speakers sit on a pair of fisual dynamic uno speaker stands and look really great.

I am using these as a stereo sound powered by my av receiver without the surround sound. I have removed the subwoofer as these two rocks. Looks the business and i like the magnet cover. Could not be happier and definitely recommended.

B&O PLAY by Bang & Olufsen Bang & Olufsen Beoplay P6 Portable Speaker – : This is a fantastic speaker, I highly recommend it.

This isn’t a long review full of technical jargon, i just want to say that i opted (for once) to spend a bit more money & go for a high end speaker after reading other reviews. I wasn’t disappointed, hearing this device is something of a revelation, it’s like hearing your music for the first time, every note is crystal clear, it fills the room with sound and you won’t believe it’s coming from this small box in the corner. The louder the volume the better it gets, it’s fantastic.

Is the priority looking good or sounding good?.

I’ve been buying mini speakers since 2014 and this is the best as far as sound quality is concerned. Absolute clarity at all volume levels and beautiful build to boot. Should have bought a second one for stereo pairing if it wasn’t so expensive.

Lovely, stylish, solid portable speaker by b&o. I really like this speaker but have been mainly using it in my lounge rather than as a portable. It is fairly large for a portable speaker at 170x130x68mm and it’s solid and heavy. I was surprised by how heavy it is. Great for taking to a party but not lightweight in a handbag. As you would expect from b&o the styling is superb – all rounded curves and edges and it’s dust and splash proof (ip54 rating) – so although not waterproof it should survive a shower or a drink spillage. The speaker also has a rubberised base to keep it securely in place. Amazingly for a portable speaker it has up to 16 hours battery life – probably one of its strongest features as a portable. The set up is very simple : it has 5 aluminum buttons along the top : 1. Pairing with your bluetooth device/phone.

  • Aesthetically brilliant, so easy to use esp with the Beoplay App, Sound outstanding
  • Not bad but not great either
  • Gorgeous sound – great quality

Bang & Olufsen Beoplay P6 Portable Speaker – Black

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • SIGNATURE SOUND QUALITY: Beoplay P6 wireless speaker delivers True360 Bang & Olufsen Signature Sound for a premium listening experience from any angle, at home or on-the-go.
  • AUTHENTICALLY BEAUTIFUL: Crafted with robust pearl-blasted aluminium that encompasses the speaker’s curved grill, and a genuine, double-layered leather carrying strap for style and portability.
  • CUSTOM SMART FEATURES: The OneTouch flex button on P6 offers easy accessibility to a world of smart features, including Google Assistant or Siri compatibility and access to Beoplay App preferences.
  • HERITAGE-INSPIRED DESIGN: Beoplay P6 is designed to pay subtle homage to the Beomaster 6000, Bang & Olufsen’s iconic sound system. This is seen in the fine cuts and flexible nature of the buttons on P6.
  • PLAY LONGER: This Bluetooth speaker boasts a powerful built-in battery that lasts for up to 16 hours, and easily recharges in just 3 hours with the included USB-C cable.

Replaced my cheaper bose soundlink color ii with this, but took the time to compare them side-by-side. I mean, look, let’s start with the negative: the beoplay p6 is not advertised as waterproof, whereas the bose one is. That may be a problem for you, if you’re out and about. Sound: the clarity of sound on the b&o model is far superior, and i was already very happy with the bose. The b&o bass response is incredible, and the 360° speaker offering no weak spots that i could casually detect. I use it for small formal outdoor do’s and parties where a little bit of music is required, and this is absolutely perfect. An accompanying app, which you download on to your smartphone, enables you to finesse the quality of the sound into ‘warm’, ‘excited’, ‘relaxed’ and ‘bright’ presets, and you can finetune and save your own presets too. It has a battery level indicator (which is otherwise a bit of a mystery on devices like this), and is all pretty intuitive and easy to use. Design: this speaker is stylish.

Having used the a2 and the bose soundlink mini bluetooth speaker ii – carbon, this is refreshing. Aesthetically brilliant, so easy to use esp with the beoplay smartphone app that gives so much scope for sound control. The sound is amazing esp when you consider the 2 x full range speakers are only 1. 5″ diameter and the 1x woofer only 4″. Clever internal electronics and multiple (3) amps see to that. Note this is mono – despite other reviewer’s claims, but can be paired with another p6 to make stereo. I also noted that the sound is a lot better coming from the non-button side compared to the button side. Worth considering when positioning the unit. Overall sounds is simply excellent, better than a2 marginally and much better than the bose.

Solid build (made it through a swim in a paddling pool). Every time i use it people comment on impressive sound quality. Negatives: app for iphone not great, no wifi connectivity and expensive. With that said, i would give it my highest recommendation.

Fabulous sound – creates the illusion of stereo.

What you are paying for here is design, great sound quality and portability. It is more expensive than an apple homepod, so only consider this speaker if you really do need the portability. Something by apple, amazon, google or sonos is way more functional. Note that you can’t attach this speaker to an echo as there is no line in. You can attach via bluetooth, but that limits functionality. For example, echos drop bluetooth connections for calls and for multi-room. There is no charger in the box, but it does come with a usb cable. If you charge via your pc, you can use the speaker as the pc output too. Charging takes a while, but then the volume and bass you get from this speaker is remarkable. There must be some big batteries in there.

Bang and olufsen – or b&o as they are mostly referred to, have always been near the top end of the audio industry. This being said, despite being at or near the top, they’ve always been more of a lifestyle brand than a professional audio brand – and there is nothing wrong with that – but it does mean, at times, the products have been less impressive to listen to than they are to look at. For me, this was exemplified by the [thankfully now discontinued] b&o 3i headphones. Thye looked amazing, had wonderful design but my word they didn’t sound as good as they should have. Fast forward a number of years and b&o has become more of a consumer brand than ever before. In-fact this new p6 bluetooth speaker is part of a number of products that are far more affordable than b&o products of old, but still aimed to be at the top of their segment. This means that this speaker – and the rest of its line – is going up against the best from bose, bowers and wilkins and vifa – among others – can offer. The good news is that despite the competition i genuinely believe that this p6 bluetooth speaker comes out on top – despite not necessarily having all the features of the competition. With just bluetooth, a few buttons and a power port, this does not have the inputs of some of its competitors. Apple very much forged the way for the death of the 3.

Bang and olufsen are a small european company that often uses anodised aluminium in their products giving them a long life span and i suspect the p6 speaker is no different. On lifting the speaker you can tell immediately that the quality is good (and it should be considering the price) as well as sturdy. It comes well packaged but a little basic with only a manual and usb c charging cable. Although the usb to c charge cable is out there in the open market, it’s not as popular relative to micro usb cables which are standard for many portable devices. This means one more cable to carry around when on the move…. The speaker has a sturdy handle that is fitted sturdily to the top corner of the speaker (which is essential given its weight) where you will find the function buttons. The p6 has a lovely retro look with grilles on both sides and pumps out a whopping 215w of music that will rock your world. Connecting to my iphone was a breeze with a dedicated bluetooth connection button and i could use both siri and answer calls without any issues. I’m pretty sure you can use google assistant too. Calls were crystal clear although oddly quite bassy.

You can certainly hear and feel the quality on this portable speaker from b&o. Opening the box reveals a beautifully crafted speaker with a leather carry handle. Underneath the sponge that holds it there is a usb-c charging cable and a small booklet. I couldn’t resist switching it on straight away, pairing it with my phone was simple and i was immediately streaming music into the room. The sound is as good as you’d expect from b&o and the question of course is how will it handle the higher volumes. You’ll see from the dimensions that this speaker is about the same size as a chunky paperback book, so what kind of power can it produce?. Well, i hadn’t even got to top volume before my kids started to shout at me to turn it down – it packs a punch. I took it outside to see how it would fare for an outside party and was seriously impressed given that it’s a relatively small speaker for that kind of thing. Even better for quieter music on a summer evening. Also a big fan of having a few buttons on the top to adjust volume without digging phone out of pocket or away from the plug if it’s charging.

When i first got interested in hi fi products back in the late 1980s bang & olufsen was the only name i was familiar with. However i did some minimal research with the specalist magazines of the time (some still around) only to find they hardly got a mention in the recommended listings. The prevailing view of the time seemd to be that b & o were primariy concerned with looks and style while other makers had the edge on sound. So i went for the likes of marantz, arcam , mission etc with the result that this is my first experience of a b& 0 product. I have to say i’m impressed by the sound and easy set up, i’ve never been too bothered about looks but there are no complaints in that respect (its only about the size of a large paperback anyway and losing it in my house would be more of an issue than it not fitting in with my decor. ) i played some 50s jazz swing and current americana vocal on- it both have the edge on the libratone mini zipp bluetooth i compared it with –and yes b @ o are more stylish too. Set up was almost immediate out of box–however installing the app was more trouble than it was worth. You get a ridiculous tone feature (to match your mood apparently -i looked for the irritated option but it only had party/morning/excited etc. Apart from the fact that i thought tone control was redundant with the introduction of hi fi–what’s the point of spending all this money on technology if you are going to screw around with it –and in any case a more complicated bass/treble option is all you are getting. It seems then that this is a marketing ploy- not enough to lose a star but given that this is bluetooth only–i.

This is “big”, premium sounds from a very small portable audio speaker. I have been reviewing for amazon for a while and in that time i have tried out a number different, large, room speakers, soundbars, surround (blue tooth) speakers, at one end of the audiophile spectrum and, small, portable, pairable devices, at the other. I have not reviewed all of them, mainly i review the ones which i have been supplied with for review from amazon, although i have to say that in the whole time this was the best device for sound projection, definitely for its size. Also, i love its appearance/design qualities, it is also of a really good build, not that anyone is going to be rough housing with their premium speaker but it wont be wrecked by accidential collision with a house pet either. That said, the lanyard, while it is strong and quality itself, i’m not sure i would trust entirely. Maybe if i were walking along a beach and using this device but even then i’m not sure i would risk drops or falls with this. It is not difficult to set up from unboxing, it works with an app which provides options for tonality and other audio functions. It is a minimalist design, the black colour, with which i was supplied, i think would go well with most home or office decor. It would be perfect for the home or a stylish, corporate office, since it is a premium device. However, i think there is a possibility that while it is handsome, most owners will want to keep this hidden away to listen to their tunes on in private or bring it out at a house party perhaps to show it off.

Good product but lacking bass.

This is a minimalist design portable speaker that exudes quality. Bang and olufsen have excelled in producing devices that combine high fidelity audio reproduction with designs that complement the most stylish of decors and this is no exception. The five flex buttons on the top of the speaker are a design reference by celilie manz to the classic beomaster 6000 stereo receivers that my friends enjoyed in the 1980s when vinyl was the standard and cds were just being developed. The minimalist approach extends to the packaging. The box contains a nicely cushioned surround for the loudspeaker, a usb charging cable and a small quick start guide. Set up is a really simple process of installing the ios or android app, creating a bluetooth connection and playing music. The speaker is offered in a choice of two colours. Black with a black leather strap or a “natural” aluminium with a light brown strap. The choice will depend entirely upon your décor. The app offers many ways to customise the sound.

Many of these kind of speakers are snapped together. Lowest bidder supply chain parts, not so much designed as drawn to fit all those cheap parts in and look vaguely fashionable. This also applies to something i was sent recently from a so-called ‘blue chip’ manufacturer, who shot my expectations down so hard the crater is still smoking. Then this b&o bluetooth speaker came. Talk about renewing the faith. . This speaker is exquisite. Even the small leather loop attached to the side is precision cut from quality hide, and hangs so that it just finishes over the usb-c socket. The cabinet is aluminium, and the bluetooth buttons (standard setup of forward, back, function etc) are not cheap plastic but also precisely engineered aluminium to match the case. One thing i didn’t see mentioned on the blurb is that if you change the speaker from your pc or laptop, it will also act as an extension speaker.

As you’d expect from b&o the sound is awesome. It’s up there with the best, and possibly the bestbut the absolute winner for me is usb charging. As most people probably do, i use these when travelling. And i being able to charge it with the same usb chargers i have for other devices is great. With previous speakers like the dali katch and bose speakers i’ve have had to bring a seperate charger just for the speaker, and this is annoying.

The beoplay p6 is simply unbelievable for a portable bluetooth speaker, both in terms of audio quality and sheer volume. Sound is clean and clear, and i haven’t found it lacking detail in anything i’ve played through it to date. I haven’t felt the need to tweak the audio with the app whatsoever, as it delivers an authentic sound by default. Output is 215w, by comparison my go-to bose soundlink mini 2 kicks out 50w. Close to full blast the p6 makes a mockery of the phrase “room-filling” to describe a competent bluetooth speaker – this thing could comfortably fill an aircraft hangar. Looks-wise the p6 is an acquired taste. With design cues from b&o’s lineage, it has something of a ‘70s vibe overall. It both looks and feels premium. Despite having a beautiful leather strap and being ‘splash and dust resistant’, the weight of the p6 limits its use as a truly portable option. I’d certainly hesitate to have it in a bag i was carrying for any significant length of time.

I’m fortunate enough to own two of bang & olufsen’s previous bluetooth speakers, a beoplay p2 and the hefty beolit 15, so have these to use as a comparison for the newly released p6. In the premium quality box, you’ll find the speaker, a quick start guide, and a good quality rubber coated usb-c charge lead. The speaker easily connects to your device as any other speaker does, but i’d recommend downloading the beoplay app as this will give you some options to customise the sound from the speaker. As expected, the speaker looks and feels the high quality it is. The overall look is very subtle and low key. The aluminium speaker grill is totally solid and i would imagine it will take a considerable knock to put a dent in it. There are five small buttons on the top of the speaker for volume / bluetooth connection and power on/off. The base of the speaker has a rubberised anti-slip coating. I sampled several tracks from pete tong (ibiza classics) and rod stewart (the great american songbook), all at high bit rate from tidal.

I must confess that i am a huge sonos fan and despite the fact that this is a speaker from the great bang & olufsen i didn’t think it could beat the sonos one. Well i am happy to say i am wrong, the beoplay p6 is absolutely fantastic, the sound quality is amazing. Really rich, deep bass that brings your music to life even though the speaker itself is quite small. I have tried a range of music from acoustic to electronic and house. It copes with everything, there is no distortion and you can hear the range of sounds clearly. The speaker never sounds like it is struggling and it can reach a loud volume. For a small speaker it has a lot of power, it is very impressive. I think the sound quality of the beoplay p6 is better than the sonos one. The beoplay p6 is portable, so you can use it in the house, move it between rooms and also take it outside. You can charge it up and have it outside in the garden. The charge lasts for up to 16 hours and you just connect it via a usb cable for re-charging, very simple and easy to use. The design of the speaker is really nice, it is minimal and unobtrusive. I would have preferred a detachable strap but that is just personal opinion. The beoplay app also has a really nice design, it is easily accessible and the simple layout makes it really easy to use.

For a nearly £250 speaker from a world renowned manufacturer i was a little disappointed. Don’t get me wrong, the sound quality is very good – there is real depth and you can distinctly hear the different layers of sound – but for me it just lacked the warmth and punch from the low end. I own a £40 anker speaker and to be honest there isn’t much difference in the sound, well not enough to justify the extra £200 anyway. I just can’t help feeling that i just paid for the name and (absolutely georgous) design and build quality.

Yamaha Electronics Yamaha MusicCast WX010 Wireless Speaker, Wonderful sound and look, terrible control and connectivity

Better than sonos play 1 in terms of sound quality. Also in my opinion app interface is great, quality is amazing too as it should be from yamaha brand. I have bought both – sonos play 1 and wx010 – to setup and compare. Sonos went back 🙂 yamaha – stayed.Planning to extend my musiccast network soon. Also is almost twice cheaper than sonos.

This isn’t bad at all, a lovely looking speaker that takes up minimal space in your home. It can be wall-mounted or left free-standing, and being powered, there is no risk of the speaker cutting out halfway through an internet radio programme, for example. I’m not too bad with technology, although i’m not brilliant. I was slightly wary of the set-up, as i have used some wireless apps in the past that i had to re-install on my iphone 6s+ every time i used the device with which they are used. Sure enough, there were some issues. I had followed the instructions on the app, but connection for internet radio (what i really wanted this for) wasn’t happening. I installed mine before the other reviews highlighting connection issues appeared, which was just as well. I unstinstalled the app, re-installed it, and it worked really well from then on in. Connections were quickly made, and all appears to work well. I have no idea what the problem was initially.

I wanted a ‘dumb’ speaker, not a talk-to one. Followed which advice that this sounds better and is cheaper than the sonos. Easy to use under airplay, bit more fiddly for spotify.

Comments from buyers

“Recommended for anyone who can’t quite bear the cost of a Sonos setup
, Excellent sound quality but dependant of good broadband/WiFi connection.
, Good sounding small speaker

A lot larger and heavier than anticipated, but does come with the capability of attaching to a wall if you have some diy skills (i don’t)very easy to assemble and connect to bluetooth devices. Excellent range and quality of sound. Quite heavy on the bass but i’m not sure if that is because of the device it was attached to or the speaker itself.

Very happy with this speaker.

Only used it with airplay from my computer so i haven’t tried it’s full range of features yet.

Downside is the lack of apple music so you’re forced to airplay. Spotify and musiccast app are superb. Simple access to streaming, digital stored music on my network and internet radio. Replaced our dab kitchen radio with something far more flexible.

The speaker links seamlessly with my yamaha rxv681 av amp and yamaha wx030 speaker. The sound quality is superb with good lows,impressive mids and excellent treble. I would say that the slightly cheaper and smaller wx010 has a better sound than the wx030 but not by much (although thinking about it as i write it could be the acoustics of the room as i have never switched them around. )i have this speaker in the kitchen, the wx030 in the dining room and the av amp in the lounge. Its great to go from room to room with the same music playing throughout. No sync issues at all with yamaha musiccast its exceptional with an easy to use downloadable app. The build quality is excellent , the sound quality is superb and setup is childs play. If you really want to hear music throughout the house the yamaha musiccast system really is a great way to do it.

Good quality build and sound. Can eq it via the musiccast app. With treble mid and bass adjustment. Easy to set up but make sure the firmware is up to date if you are linking it with another device. Again this is done via musiccast app under settings.

The unit is powerful enough for a 20 sq. Sound quality is excellent, a little bass heavy to my ears as a default, but this is easily adjusted. The unit is very solid, and comes with a rubberised base and additional adhesive pads, so unwanted vibration shouldn’t be a problem. The musicmatch app is fairly easy to get on with, very quickly recognises any dlna servers you have set up, also has access to airplay, net radio, spotify, deezer et al, or can just be used as a bluetooth speaker. Remembers the last source used, so when you switch it on it’ll continue from wherever it was when you switched it off. I have 2 of these in different rooms and connecting them is straightforward, though i suspect the quality of the syncing will be very dependant on your wifi.

I’m very new to wireless speakers, so this was the first one i have ever used. I think the connectivity was good & quick. Very sleek modern design and also it’s nice and small, so easy for a work surface in the kitchen for example. The only thing that upset me was that you can only use spotify premium on this device & i only have the basic account. Other than that, very happy with the product.

Good speaker, connects well and sound quality is really good for its size. Musiccast app is ok, not the best but works relatively well and when linked to other speakers in my house creates a great music system. Whilst you can link these to a soundbar they do not function as surround speakers so look elsewhere if that’s what you are after.

These speakers are truly amazing. They easily fill a large room with balanced full sound. Given their size the bass is astounding. We’re so pleased we bought another for the dining room. We listen to music stored on a nas dlna server & internet radio which auto connects with power on so easy to just switch on & listen without needing to fiddle with apps. The music cast system is brilliant.

Best value for money of all competing speaker brands.

A good quality wireless and bluetooth speaker. I purchased 2 together with a musiccast crxn470d system about 15 months ago. Until recently the speakers kept losing the wifi signal which really annoyed me. However after further losses of wifi signals it was discovered that openreach had wired my broadband connection wrongly, since which time the speakers which are situated in different locations in my home, have worked perfectly and reproduced the sounds of an excellent quality.

Working well now but took some time to get it connected to wifi. A socket to link with record player would have been useful.

Nice feel product with a reassuring weight and build quality. Be warned that you need to break them in and to begin with sound is okay but tge more ive used them the better they’ve become and at £100 cheaper per pair than sonos are very happy. Software is intuitive and wifi range is good.

I am amazed at the clarity and room filling quality of this small speaker. It has a great range from high treble to bass with that can be felt and heard. This speaker is used in a large double height room and is performing well. This is a smart looking, very unobtrusive speaker. I like the clean uncluttered, simple design, the lack of knobs and buttons in favour of very sensitive touch controls is very welcome. Set up was straightforward and instructions easy to follow. I use ipads to control the speaker and have no problems with the app which is simple and intuitive. The one letdown for this dedicated apple user is the inability to play from itunes, thus having to rely on spotify (free), digital radio and music collection.

I have a number of small bluetooth speakers which are wonderful portable devices and for their size have good sound. But if you really want something that hooks up to your phone and can put our outstandingly clear sound with great base and loud enough to be heard at a distance then this is the item for you. As it is plugged in rather than charged it can really get some power behind it. First impressions are of a very well put together device. It appears like a small speaker but with the various functions on top you can see it is more than that. First thing i did was download the app which with a bit of setup connected nicely to the speaker and opened up options such as connecting to your phone’s library of music or being able to access things like spotify or radio stations. Unlike other such devices the app runs off your wi-fi so you get a more stable and stronger signal. The sound quality is very good and the volume levels can go up quite high. I find this useful as i placed mine in the dining room which is between my kitchen and living room and i can hear it perfectly clearly in each room which means when i am going back and forth whilst preparing food i do not have to turn my device on and off. It has a function for setting up which room it is placed in which likely optimises for the acoustics.

I bought this wireless active speaker for use in connexion with the yamaha crx 470 n musiccast system. The sound quality and connectivity is very good. If you are looking for complete portability however look elsewhere as the speaker has no battery power it must be plugged into the mains. For my family the main object of buying the yamaha musiccast system was to listen to internet radio in virtually every room in the house. My wife is an avid listener of france inter. Before the french government, in their miserliness, decided to switch off the long wave transmission my wife had am radios stationed throughout the house. The musiccast system restores this functionality with the added benefit of better sound reproduction. The musiccast system is very flexible just like sonos. The crx 470 music centre will play music stored on a computer hard drive and usb drive.

I have a wired bose system in the house, but is not suitable for modern technology. Which gave the yamaha a great review, 84% far higher than many brands citing four or five times as much. The app works well, and has it operates with airplay so you can go straight from apple phone/pad without using the app. Sound quality is excellent and will buy more for other rooms. 9th feb 2019 bought another it’s such a good product.

At almost £120 you might think this a tad expensive for a speaker but this is a speaker and a half and, in my opinion, worth every pennyopening the box i have to say i was a tad disappointed; it didn’t look any different from my old speaker (more compact but then things have moved on since my speakers were bought)it may be obvious to you but i’d not appreciated the difference that a wireless speaker makes; i’ve put it exactly where i wanted it – including on my patio when friends were round. My kids gave me spotify for christmas and up to now o hadn’t really valued it (listening on my phone was ok but not great). Listening to my choice of music through this speaker was a revolutioni have to admit i’m a bit scared of new technology and waited for my son to come home and set it up. A doddle was how he described iti’m also loving the internet radio that it comes with. I can listen to my favourite french radio station whenever i want – marvellous (manifique)i really find nothing to fault with this.

An excellent piece to keep yourself energetic by feeling every bit of music. Easy to connect with loads of options. The piece is with loads of options which making me feel wow. Easy portable and can connect via wifi or bluetooth. Music cast app is extremely easy to operate, gives loads of option of controlling music at different rooms.

Lovely crystal clear speaker , linked in with yamahas music cast so we can listen to the stereo in a different room .

Comments from buyers

“great music centre
, Interesting piece of retro furniture
, Amazing to sit back or dance to the old vinyl

The best pressie ever for my vintage loving daughter, its absolutely great and fantastic value.

Got my music system in 18 hrs brilliant thanks.

Got 1 for my father for his xmas, the cd player jumped or stopped playing, got a replacement one and does exactly same, nice looking machine but wont recommend it to anyone.

I’m so happy i can now play my old vinyls as well as cassettes and cd’s. Thanks for bringing back some happy memories.

Very happy with item thank you.

Very pleased with my purchase.

Very good fits were l hope it would and sound great it come on the 1st of february l was told it will come on the 5 of february so that was very good and again the sounds are very good.

Looks quite cheap but works ok.

Perfectly acceptable sound quality hours of endless fun after digging old albums out of loft.

Looks great and is functional. . Not a bad sound but it stops there, no tonal control and quality of control knobs stops it getting a five star.

All functions work during initial breif test. Very please with delivery and product.

Excellent service from this seller. Contact telephone and email provided i say you can buy with confidence.

Beautiful product, just a shame had to return as too wide for intended space due to the cds going in via side. Cannot fault customer service.

Son loves this music centre. Loves his vinyl it’s all very new for him being 12.

Nothing bad to say about it.

Bought this for mum & dad, they love it. Functional but attractive & neatly presented.

Read and follow the instructions carefull when first setting up the turntable. In fact read the turntable instruction twice to make sure you understand what they saying.

We bought this as a replacement for a similar product and has been fantastic with a good sound quality.

Got this for xmas and it is brilliant players records good cds plays good too. I would recommend this to anyone as a gift.

I bought this for my dad’s birthday and he loves it. Great sound and beautiful looking.

Brilliant buy lovely sound well worth purchasing.

Blow Bazooka Speaker Bluetooth Bt1000 100w Usb Sd Fm Aux High Quality Sound, overpriced a wee bit but tiny bit better than the others i tried not as loud as

Feels well made and can get fairly loud but strangely some songs seem to be louder than others even when played sequentially through amazon music. Maybe they all do it depending on the song?. The speaker charges through a micro usb cable on the front. Ok for now but as the port loosens as it does on most devices with micro usb i am guessing it will be harder to keep it plugged in. Also with the cable plugged in right next to the buttons it is less clean than it should. Ideally this would have a dedicated charging port coming out of the back. Price is reasonable compared to the competition but still considerably more expensive than i found it on the internet from some polish shops i came across while i was trying to find out more information about it. I saw it as low as 37 euros which is considerably less than the £60+ charged on amazon uk.

Very good for the money loud just what we wanted.

Battery life is not 2-3 hours as it’s in the description.

Comments from buyers

“If I could give more than 5 stars I would
, I would suggest pointing the bass speaker (positioned at the back) towards a wall for the best allround sound
, Superb Boom Box

Everything you could want from a portable speaker.

For the price it’s pretty good, nice sound but there is no way it’s 100w as advertised. . I did the bass test and it’s pretty poor. But don’t get me wrong for the price it does it’s job.

I wasnt expecting much for the price. However the sound reproduction is superb. The radio isnt up to much to be honest but im not likely to use that particular function. I downloaded a load of tunes to a micro sd card and used an adaptor (usually supplied with micro sd). Plugged it in and it just played one after the other. I havnt used the bluetooth function yet by the way. No distortion at high volume and lovely compressed bass. I would suggest pointing the bass speaker (positioned at the back) towards a wall for the best allround sound. Im gonna be using this for a party which is what i bought it for,and im sure it wont disappoint.

Overpriced a wee bit but tiny bit better than the others i tried not as loud as the boomtube by thumsup or but better ui.

Was playing hard all week and didn’t disappoint. For this price it’s just a best.

Great thank you, i’ve recently brought this portable speaker that is better than i could of thought, it says in the description that it has a run time of 3 hours, so far ( as of writing this review it’s still running after a three hour charge) it’s still running and the charge was eight hrs ago and it’s been playing constantly, everything i wanted and more.

Brought 2 of these the sound quality is very good bass is brilliant even my base head son approved will by more soon.

Fantastic sound quality very well designed.

House of Marley Chant Mini BT – Portable Bluetooth Speaker – Great sound

Great speaker and looks very stylish in my grandson’s room.

Excellent packaging and great sound quality for a smal speaker.

I love the sound and the bluetooth has a very nice range. Definitely worth every penny.

Brought this speaker after i saw my flatmate using it. And it turned out to be one of the best speakers i have brought. I like bit of bass since i listen to rock and metal most of the time and this speaker is amazing for the music genres.

Amazing sound for such a compact but portable product. Bought as a present and it is very much appreciated and used.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Rocks my socks
  • It does it.
  • Good Quality, Sound and Price

Excellent quality sound, good design, overall a good buy im very happy.

Fantastic product as always from house of marley. Sounds awesome, loud and clear. Easy to use and small enough to take wherever you like.

Good looking good soundawful instructions. Minute printworked out how to use it from basic diagrams in about 3 mins.

Ordered as a gift, looks great and sounds pretty good for a little guy.

I love this speaker, it has such a great sound considering it’s size.

Both myself and my partner are very impressed with this. Small, compact yet very loud.

My dad loves it, uses it everywhere.

The sound quality was great just what we wanted.

Nice finish with the wood on top. Sound is clear and enough loudness. It is great for chilling out in the lounge or outside, cooking, exercise, or reading. This is not for a big party loud music, but it will help with the warm up.

Small compact boom box speaker with good sound. Connects to bluetooth easily, and can connect to your belt or strap with the caribiner.

Great sound from a compact speaker. Don’t expect earth moving bass, but it performs well considering it’s size and cost.

Great product, well made and good finish. Looks cool and has a great sound.

Bought for other half , she is very happy with the item.

Great little speaker, very loud for its size, i rarely find myself charging it. Its also very stylish and aesthetically pleasing.

Amazing audio for the size and price, the speaker isn’t clearly made from pure quality materials also, battery life is crazy, had it for 2 months and hardly charged it and it is used every day for hours.

This little speaker is amazing. Very intuitive to use, easy to link up via bluetooth with your device and it packs a punch sound wise for it’s size – it’s a good desktop companion, it’s not for large rooms and parties. Standing around 10cm tall, it was beautifully packaged and is well made – i love it.

KitSound Voice One : Great quality sound and a good looking unit with Alexa

This is a great idea, lovely sound, a great speaker built in. The trouble is it doesn’t hear you very well, you have to shout at it. The standard amazon alexa is better by far, if they could make this with a hearing aid it would have got 5 stars. Unfortunately i returned mine, swapped it for the genuine article.

1 year on and still works amazing with great sound quality, certainly fine for a medium size room.

Pros — audio quality is very good- set up onto wireless home network is a cinch with the smart-phone app- works well with lots of streaming services such as amazon music and spotify- retro styling is very attractive and build quality is robust- came with multiple power cables for different countries and a remote control with battery included- seemed to pick up me saying ‘alexa. ‘ very well despite volume of the music playing- takes advantage of all the options open to you with alexa – e. News briefs, weather reports, what’s on at your cinema etc. Cons — only bass and treble are controllable via a smart-phone app – there is no high/mid/low equaliser- boot up time is quite slow – takes a long time to reconnect to the wifi if you have had it switched off- given how the speakers are built into the sides and the bass comes out of the back, there is only one way to ‘mount’ this speaker and that is to have it standing tall as shown in the picture – this very much limits your options as to where to locate it and indeed if you tuck it into a corner you’ll ruin the stereo effect- alexa misunderstood my commands time and time again – to begin with this was quite funny but it soon stopped being a joke and just got irritating- the little remote control has poorer build quality than the speaker itself and felt a bit cheap in comparison.

First up: i can understand peoples’ issues with getting set up: – installation was a bit of an issue, you see the problem is that like many wifi services, eg wemo, and this speaker, it relies on you connecting to the new devices’ own “hotspot” to set it up. Fine in theory but for one android specific issue – android is “clever” and will by default disconnect from any wifi network that it detects can’t access the internet, in favour of one that it can. So installation goes like this typically:- click wifi networks on android, choose kitsound speaker. – android goes back to your household router. – click kitsound speaker again- android goes back to your household router- tell android to forget the household router- click kitsound speaker again- android refuses to connect to it- try a new phone- android finally connects but complains there’s no network- you try the app, then realise android is actually using 4g now and so still can’t see the speaker- turn off 4g- finally the app can see the speaker. And you don’t get that half hour back. But that’s pretty much what goes on. Same happens with wemo, same with any of these devices that connect this way.

  • Amazingly good
  • Great value alternative to the mainstream brands
  • Very good sound – very pleased

This is an impressive looking speaker but did not quite deliver on its promise. It arrived in a large box containing; the speaker itself, mains leads covering uk, europe and the us, a 3. 5mm aux cable, a remote control and instructions which are rather vague and rely on the app to set the speaker up. You will also need the amazon alexa app to set up this functionality. Setting the speaker up raised an issue as you have to connect to the speakers own wifi hotspot. Using android it will by default disconnect from any wifi network which can’t access the internet which is not mentioned in the instructions or the app and you may need to disable mobile data to stop it dropping back to 4g if using a phone. You also need to remove the isolating tab on the remote control to allow it to work. This allows you to mute the speaker, change the volume, or manage sources. The speaker is quite large and impressive looking from a distance but the speaker doesn’t quite as solid when you pick it up. It has a fabric cover with all the controls at the front.

Good value speaker, ideal for a small room and works well with alexa albeit she does seem a bit more attentive to the tv compared to the amazon dot she replaced in the bedroom.

Rating this device is a little tricky – if i was to consider sound quality alone it would rate a three or three and a half. But it isn’t just a speaker. To me it feels like a personal assistant, and it’s really quite useful at times. If sound quality is your main concern, and you’re hoping for a stunning hi-fi quality device then you’ll be disappointed, and i recommend you go elsewhere, preferably to your local hi-fi dealer. A small, plastic, inexpensive thing like this will never be able to match the ability or sound reproduction of a real and much more expensive dedicated hi-fi speaker like – for instance – my set of monitor audio’s. The sound quality of the kitsound is variable, and it seems to depend on what one plays. I’ve fed mine with a lot of different sources and the results are pretty mixed. For instance, i was surprised by how good it sounds playing classical music, which is delivered incisively, with clarity and bight. But feed it anything heavy and complex and it becomes a little unstuck. White stripes was really too much for my sample unit, which was unable to resolve the complex harmonics and layered sound effects.

Very nice speaker – getting the echo working was a bit tricky as i did not have the location setting on. Once i set this on my phone where i’d downloaded the app. To it was only about 5 minutes to complete the installation.

Brilliant speaker but didn’t realise alexa was limited.

Having spent a couple of days looking at various speakers. I was left deciding between a sonus or kitsound must say i not disappointed. Alex was easy to setup and the mic can be turned off when you don’t want to be monitored. The sound is great the speaker spends most of its time on half volume much more and the neighbours complain.

Good looking piece of kithave set this up to control my heating. My lights and 2 sockets the sound i think is second to to noneaux connected to my surround sound fills the room all with voice control. Download alexa and kitsound app follow instructions. . Easy connection all automatic wifi blutooth aux simpledownside. Remote i did not receive one in my package. Perhaps they will send me one?????.

Perfect and with great sound quality. The column is super responsive, easy to set up well with alexa’s application. I’ve never had a problem setting up skills with third-party apps to control the devices by voice.

Bought this after reading other reviews. It has a good deep bass and plenty of volume. However the amazon echo has a much cleaner and clearer sound.

I’ve been running a squeezebox system for about 10 years or so, but slowly the hardware is starting to fail. This was bought as a replacement/combination for the squeezebox boom and echo dot in the kitchen. First impressions are “nice packaging” and “it’s a bit bigger than i expected”, however it’s not excessive and the volume knob is nice and tactile. I’m pleasantly surprised to say that it can replace the two devices i was using previously. The sound is less bassy than the boom, but it sounds a lot better than the echo dot by itself so despite being a bit thin for my liking, it’s acceptable for the kitchen and can make itself heard above usual kitchen sounds. Setting up the speaker itself was easy with the kitsound app – though there’s also a webpage that allows it to be configured when you connect to the setup wifi network. The app (on ios) allows streaming of your itunes music collection (though nothing in icloud) and a few other services. You also use the app to switch alexa into uk english mode and get the “right” voice back. The speaker contains a wiimu linkplayer implementation and as such has airplay built in. Supporting chromecast audio as well might be useful for android owners.

Great product works well, nice sound.

I bought one for my living room and one for my bedroom. It took me a few days to figure out how to get the multi-room working but now it’s all set up it’s fantastic. The sound from them is really crisp and clear and it’s really easy to link to spotify on my devices. Only downside is that i’ve got the speaker near the tv so sometimes alexa will turn on music, etc. Because of dialogue in whatever i’m watching.

The little plastic tag with the brand name on it fell off as i took this out of the box, which didn’t inspire confidence in the quality control. The box in question was diagonally cut, and was certainly eye-catching – i care much more about the contents, personally; i’ll be throwing the box away so it doesn’t really add any lasting value. Before i deal with the technical side of connecting the speaker, i’ll say that i found the sound pleasantly engaging: at low levels it is light and slightly treble-led, but when turned up, a pleasing bass comes into play. I wasn’t very impressed with the omnidirectional sound – it felt like mono to me. It would be better to buy two of these and get them playing in stereo pairing. Up to eight can be used in synch, all in different rooms if you like. Volume can be controlled with the remote control provided, which is small but feels well made (cr20 battery included). The speaker has an inbuilt amazon alexa feature whivh works well. I fail to see the attraction personally, but it seems to be very popular for some reason. Connecting to your wifi is easy, unless you use your mobile phone as your hotspot when at home, like me.

I got this 2 pair up with the rest of my speakers. But its does not support multiroom.

This is brilliant — when you have managed set it up. The sound is good, and alexa’s skills are impressive. However — one big snag is that you cannot set it up without the kitsound app to connect to wifi. You cannot download the app with windows (we have a windows 10 laptop) or with amazon fire tablets. The app is available with ios or android, onlywe had to beg a friend with an ipad to install it for us. Now it has connected to our router, but as we still do not have the kitsopund app, we are unable to update it. For a good piece of kit, it seems very shortsighted that the app needed to install it is only available through ios or android.

Very impressed with the setup, features and superb sound quality. I had intended to purchase a much better known brand, until i heard a sound comparison and looked at the fantastic connection options. I purchased a pair and have them set as right and left stereo channels in a large room.

 having owned an echo dot since it’s launch i was already familiar with alexa capabilty but you can’t use it as a speaker in a decent size room. This however solves the problem, a bookshelf style speaker with great sound, alexa, and at a good price point. Out of box set up was easy, there was a software upgrade but instructions were easy and clear to follow. I had it set up quickly and linked to my home wifi. The sound is the big difference, it easily fills a room and i was only at half volume or so. It looks good, very contemporary and easy to know that alexa is listening by changing light colour on the front of the speaker. (it is easy to turn off to if needed).

I used to have an amazon echo. I loved it, but the sound quality really let it down. It was fine for everyday stuff, but when i wanted to use it to listen to music a bit louder it really struggled. I wanted to upgrade the sound quality, and was considering splashing out on an apple home pod when they come out… but then i saw the voice one. All the alexa functionality of the echo, but with better sound – soldi have set mine up in the kitchen, mainly for listening to music while i cook, so the nano-coating feature is great. I gave the jamie oliver ‘skill’ a go to give me a recipe to follow, which was really fun. A small criticism i have of the speaker is that it doesn’t support 5ghz wifi networks – so i had to fiddle with the settings in my router when setting it up. All sorted now, but a bit of a headache at the time when i just wanted to start using iti had no problems connecting the speaker to both my iphone and my girlfriend’s samsung galaxy, and it’s great that we can listen to music from both apple music through the ks player app, and spotify. All in all though, the voice one is fantastic – can’t believe i got such a great sounding speaker for such a good price. Would happily recommend the speaker at this price even without the alexa functionality, so the fact that it’s a smart speaker is amazing.

HUSAN Bluetooth Speakers Waterproof Portable Speaker – Worked well.

Connecting to my iphone was very easy, once bluetooth is turned on my phone and the speaker is switched on, it connected automatically. Good value for money, i have only used it a couple of times but i am happy with the performance.

Good product,easy to use great sound.

I’m pleased with this speaker, i have numerous high quality bluetooth speakers and this one is good for its price it goes well in our small bathroom and gives a decent sound for its size and price. It’s easy to use and connects to whomevers mobile is in there with it.

I’m really happy with my new easy to use husan ipx5 wireless speaker, it connects so easily to my ipad and iphone for a better sound quality when watching youtube or amazon prime videos. I’ve taken it away with me for weekends and friends have been able to easily connect to it also from their devices. This speaker comes with a handy re-charge cable too. It’s excellent value for money given its price.

This is very good speaker, sound very clear, very easy to use and it makes me more comfortable to have music when i take a shower.

I bought this as a gift and it was a hit. So much so that i was asked to buy another one for someone else. Great product good quality and great sound .

  • Tiny speaker with pro quality
  • Amazing value, stylish and great sound
  • A brilliant bit of kit!

It’s hanging in my shower and works like a charm even when wet. Easy to pair and it’s quite. Really durable and worth the money spent. I’m very happy with my purchase.

Wanted this so i could listen to the radio in the shower. Connected seamlessly with my google home and now you can catch me dancing around the shower every night. Buy this item its worth every penny.

Great present for my nephew – make sure you dampen the suction cup before sticking to wall.

Great looking item, not used it yet as it’s a christmas gift for my daughter. Great that there is a 1yr guarantee with the product. Very quickly delivery and great price.

It’s been in use for a while, and the sound quality is good.

Must be good, i can’t even remember buying it.

Simple, very easy to use, mainly use it when having a shower, but also taken it outside – connected with my phone via bluetooth, great with spotify.

The sound quality for this little thing is brilliant, especially for the cheap price. It’s super easy to use and the bluetooth link up was quick and easy, would definitely recommend.

This speaker can be used in a group setting without any fear of damage. Therefore, i recommend this to uni students or any young people who intend on buying a speaker for a social setting and fear that damage may be caused. It is waterproof, withstands any falls on concrete and has beautiful sound.

I bought this to use in the bathroom, and in the shower. It works extremely well, the sound quality is great and it’s just what i wanted. I found it a doddle to set up. I would recommend this speaker to anyone especially since it’s not expensive.

I use it in the bathroom / shower to listen to my music.

Waterproof Speaker : waterproof bluetooth speakers with TPU unbreakable silicone material, protecting speakers portable perfectly, portable bluetooth speakers design for party, pool, travel, hiking and biking, you can connect outdoor speakers through a close touch in seconds by NFC support

Really good quality, sound is good and more than loud enough. More choice in colours would be nice.

I am extremely happy with my new, speakers. I use mainly in the shower and i find it easily connects to my spotify via iphone. I have been using for over a week in the shower and no problems.

Sound is good quality and works exactly as it should.

Decent sound, reasonable volume, auto re-pairs, for the money it seems very good. I have not used the card function. If i had to pick a fault it would be that the suction cup seems not really up to the job, but this is removable/replaceable and is enough for short periods or to stop the speaker falling off a slopped surface.

Excellent product my son loves it works well, easy to use and great value for money.

Good product and prompt delivery.

Built-in microphone: Enables use this Wireless Bluetooth Speaker as a speakerphone, so you can enjoy hands-free calling

I’ve been using this speaker for about a week now, and it’s superb. Connecting with my iphone was smooth and very easy, and the sound quality is fantastic. I’ve mainly been using it for audiobook listening so far, and the output is clear and superb – it sounds as if you are in the recording booth with them.

This product does exactly what you want – great quality and easy to use at at good price.

This seemed to be an excellent speaker with good sound quality. It connected via bluetooth easily. However, after 7 months of use for about 10 minutes daily it no longer worked. It would connect to the iphone but no sound came out of the speaker. Husan tech has offered a replacement so that has improved their rating for service.

Been needing one of these for a while now. Using my phone is too risky, i’m not comfortable having my phone around water. This speaker can come into the shower with me and it sounds great. I have other bluetooth speakers so i knew what to expect. Great solution for the bathroom or anywhere wet.

Bought this for my partner who is a landscape gardener to enjoy music anywhere he is very impressed with it and has found for such a small item it gives a good sound and is resilient.

I bought this for my other half to use when he’s having a shower and he was amazed by the sound quality from this tiny machine. Admittedly he hooked his phone up by bluetooth and whilst he was showering a customer phoned him 🙂 he now uses his sd card. For a muso to say that it has a great sound, i’m pretty impressed. I would highly recommend this, and so would he.

Excellent, perfect for the bathroom and camping.

Bluetooth 4.0 Tech:100%Brand New from factory and It connects your device in 3 seconds, outstanding connection range of up to 33 feet.

Rugged little speaker, with lots of features, including playback from sd card. The sound quality probably suffers a little due to the waterproofing, but it still sounds a lot better than some speakers that aren’t even waterproof, specially considering this speaker’s cost. Definitely worth the purchase.

Still don’t know if you can pass the song from it but it is really nice sound quality and i have used it in the shower and it is still alive.

I’m very impressed with this speaker. To be honest at this price i wasn’t expecting nuch, but the sound is crisp and the kids are good. Can’t wait to take this on holiday and have around the pool.

The sound is full and very clear for such a small speaker and at a very reasonable price. We liked it so much we bought two more.

I absolutely love this speaker. The sound quality is excellent, it’s super easy to use, it comes with a sucker and a hook to hang it and the instructions are clear and to the point. It looks stylish, the cost is great and its a brilliant little device. Absolutely worth the price tag and will probably rival much more expensive speakers. Just remember that it cannot be submerged fully in water.

Can stick it up or hang anywhere and being waterproof is a bonus.

BUILT-IN POWERBANK – Don’t get stuck with a dead device at the wrong time.

I’m no expert, but sound quality is great. Also i love the clip that comes with it. I use it to watch netflix and listen to music and it’s really nice. I haven’t tested it being waterproof but i do put it in my bathroom while i shower and it’s been handling humidity well. Been using it everyday for a few weeks now and it’s a pleasure. It’s very compact so i’m really excited to take it on my next backpacking trip as well.

So far so good – bought this as a present and seems to be an excellent product. For the price can’t ask for much more, connects easily and seems pretty robust. Only downside is sound is slightly ‘tinny’, but for the price, can’t expect much else. Will look forward to continuing to use.

This has a lovely sound to it. It has a hard wearing cover which seems to be shock proof. I have not tested it for being water proof.

Excellent piece of equipment recommended by camping and caravan club magazine; their positive review has proved to absolutely right. Good sound, portable, waterproof. . Can even answer my mobile calls 😊.

I am happy with this product. It arrived quickly and it does what it says on the box. I was able to use it as soon as it arrived as it was charged already. Great product and good price.

Recipient tells me he is very happy with it.

I needed a bit more volume for an elderly relative to take a phone call, this worked better than the phones own speaker, plays music pretty clear too.

Saw this in the caravan and motorhome club magazine. Ordered one day, arrived the next. Used in the caravan last weekend, excellent. Brilliant service and product.

Works well & easy to set up. It sticks well to the shower wall with the suction cup & my son loves it. Good value for money – would recommend.

House of Marley Chant Mini BT – Portable Bluetooth Speaker, Five Stars

I like it very much, this little is very noise too 😁 the design is very nice am the sound very good.

Awesome little speaker, packs a great punch for it’s size. The build quality is top notch, it’s simple to use, charges quickly and lasts way longer than expected. The sound quality is far better than other comparably sized speakers i’ve used and definitely what you’d expect from this brand, not the cheapest option but worth every penny.

Was really surprised with how loud and the quality of the sound.

Comments from buyers

“Awesome little speaker
, Fantastic, great sounds from this piece of kit
, Better than expected.

This is the third speaker i’ve reviewed this year, and the best so far. It’s a gorgeous looking speaker – far better looking than most in this price range. The sound quality is pretty good, too – i’ve not noticed any distortion at louder volumes, even when playing drum’n’bass. It’s easy to use (a simplistic design) and easy to recharge (usb). A full charge, at present, has lasted over 5 hours and still going. As a bluetooth connection, it’s been fine when used around the house and garden with my iphone/imac… setting it up took no time at all. The headphone jack a nice but pointless addition, but it works fine. Definitely the best speaker i’ve tested in this price range, and happy to recommend it.

Great sound for a little speaker. Highly recommend, house of marley make some great products.

Although the marley connection is spurious, it at least means you have a product which looks good on the shelf and doesn’t feeling another piece of technology. The sound quality is good although it takes some messing about to get the right equaliser settings on the device.

For the price a fantastic bluetooth speaker. Easy to set up and easy to use.

First impressions were good; the speaker looked well packaged, simple and neat. Contents were the speaker, charging cable, instructions and a handy carabineer clip. First thing i noticed was how easy it was to operate, i didn’t even need to look at the instructions it was all pretty self explanatory, hold power button, press blue tooth button and connect to device such as mobile phone, it really was as easy as that. Simple is definitely the key with this speaker, 4 simple buttons, a denim sort of material with a bamboo wood top, it is a good size not too big and not too small like some other speakers i have used before. The surprise came when i put some music on, the quality was brilliant, clear and had good bass, and very loud for such a small speaker, you really can crank it up and it doesn’t lose any of its quality. I must also mention the battery; i haven’t once charged it since i took it out of the box and i have used it every day for the past 3 days and it is still going. I was very surprised with this neat little speaker, simple in looks, very simple in functionality, good battery life out of the box and the sound quality is very good, i would definitely recommend this product to anyone. If you’re looking for a handy bluetooth wireless speaker with a good size, easy to use and of good quality then this is for you. I have used it while cooking, cleaning, outside, in the car i would even use it if i had a party and guests round.

Can’t fault these for the price, easily fill a lounge or holiday apartment. Bluetooth never dropped out and battery lasted well. I bought these after buying the in ear headphones as i was so impressed with the quality.

Medium or less quality, not easy to find controllers, good range. Anyway, too pricey for what you get.

Really really good quality and fantastic price.

Great speaker, way more powerful than i anticipated, great sound quality. Only problem is no warning for low battery so if you use it a lot without charging you might suddenly find yourself sitting in awkward silence.

Absolutely brilliant speaker for its small wattage. Lovely design, as expected from house of marley. Definitely buy if you’re thinking of it.

Amazing sound from a little device, good quality and nice size for portability.

Bruh, this little thing is the best thing i have ever bought. Bruh the quality and the volume on this thing is insane. I definitely recommend this speaker.

So i received this speaker – it is approximately the size of a large coffee mug. I first noticed that the instructions were rudimentary, consisting of very small black and white diagrams with little text. Fortunately the thing was not difficult to figure out in order to get it working. Charging is via a micro-usb cable (supplied) – before first use the internal battery needed three hours of charge according to the accompanying diagrams. I thought fitting the micro-usb cable into the socket on the device was rather fiddly, as it didn’t seem to go in properly at first attempt. When it was charged up, however, the device was easy to use: press the on-button, then press the bluetooth button, and then i was able to connect to it using my smartphone. I tested it by placing the speaker on the far side of my living room whilst controlling the music from phone from my armchair, a distance of approximately 4 meters. It certainly worked: the sound was very clear for what is supposedly just a small speaker, though i doubt it would ever replace a decent hi-fi (or dedicated bluetooth sound-bar, for that matter). One thing i noticed is that the speaker itself did not appear to have any form of bluetooth security, i. There was no way of setting up a pin-code on the speaker to prevent anyone from ‘blue-jacking’ it. As it happened there was no-one else around so this was not an issue when i tested it. Finally: this device is marketed as having some sort of connection to bob marley, although from my point of view this was entirely superfluous, so i can’t really see the relevance myself.

This an easy to set up blu tooth speaker with an attractive bamboo rim. It paired with my other devices first time round and produces a clear sound. I used it in the bathroom with the shower running and the sound was excellent. I well made and attractive speaker which produces very good sound and is easy to carry around. It comes with a belt loop for carrying purposes.

Excellent sound and quality, compact and great looking. Bought for my son’s 18th birthday and he takes it everywhere.

What a great little speaker for under £30. Surprised how loud it was for the size.

Great mini speaker, i use it in my kitchen for when friends come around. So great i recommended it and have bought 3 more for people.

Great quality for such a small thing, perfect for outdoors with a small group of people. Solid bass sound as well (which i’ve found a lot of smaller speakers lack) and have had no trouble connecting to it from my laptop (windows) or iphone. Only thing is the start up and connecting noises (v loud no matter what volume you have it on) but i’ve found that’s a problem with most bluetooth speakers.

We have quite a few bluetooth speakers of all price ranges but this one really is setting the bar high. Aside from the fact that it does look really good, it really does pack loads of punch – the sound coming from a relatively small speaker is just excellent, even the bass sounds are better than expected although bear in mind this reduced somewhat due to its smaller size. It pairs easily and effortlessly and a full charge lasts a long time.

Nifty, light bluetooth speaker that can be carried (why??) on a small supplied carabineer. This gives a very good sound quality for such a light item. It is in the shape of a bongo drum clad in denim.

This is a lovely speaker, which produces a warm vibrant sound. I am using this to listen to audiobooks, it connected to my smartphone with no problems and works automatically with no issues. Everything is very intuitive and works well.

ZoeeTree S4 Wireless Bluetooth Speaker : quality sound, great price

Beautifully designed, this little speaker packs a punch and is load but still clear enough to be heard all around my flat. Come with a micro usb to charge and a bonus 3. Fm radio was a bit disappointing. Using either of the cables supplied as an antenna, the signal is not great and requires you to hold the cable up. Sd card functionality is great, meaning you don’t have to mess around with any devices, just insert the micro sd card and the device auto connects. If you don’t want to remove the sd card, incase you loose it, you can use the m (mode) switch to switch to fm radio or aux or bluetooth.

I’ve never used bluetooth before, and i wasn’t sure i’d be able to set it up. But it couldn’t have been easier. I used the zoeetree s4 speaker with my mac book pro, switched on the bluetooth, turned on the speaker, and presto. There are a few seconds of lag time when connecting or disconnecting, but otherwise it easily switches back and forth from internal speakers to the zoee speaker. The speaker can pick up the signal from quite a distance. I tried from 20 feet with no problem. And the speaker sound is good quality for a medium room of people. I use it for teaching groups of 20+, showing videos with sound. I don’t know how it stacks up for music quality, but it’s perfect for my needs.

This is a well made bluetooth speaker, ideal for many uses, i wanted it to use as a remote speaker for the tv, so a hard of hearing person could have it near to them so we did not have to turn the tv up so loud. When i use it on bluetooth there is a slight latency so you seem to have an echo in the room, turning the sound of the tv cures this or plugging the speaker into the tv works better for us. The speaker is easy to use and will fill many roles, i am very pleased with it so far.

Great speakers, very durable battery the main price is reasonable, i have to give five stars.

As a bluetooth speaker its fine if you don’t intend on using this as an extension speaker for alexa dont read further than this. Because it is a battery optional speaker, it has a built in shutdown of the bluetooth connection. This means that when alexa answers you back it misses the first two words everytime alexa speaks rendering it useless as an extension speak for her. There appears to be no way to change the pick up delay or to force it to remain connected all the time to alexa. Its a shame because alexa sounds great through it once it actually kicks in. I cant give it a full 5 stars with this issue.

ZoeeTree S4 Wireless Bluetooth Speaker, Portable Stereo Subwoofer with HD Sound and Bass, Built-in Mic, Bluetooth 4.2, TF Card Slot, Outdoor Speakers for iPhone, iPad, Samsung etc (Green) :

Just received my portable speaker its a lovely size weights about 1/2 bag of sugar very easy to blue tooth to your mobile phone comes with 2 cables the sound is very loud or a least loud enough for me its very stylish i do wish it had the beveled front panel design ive seen on the other zoe tree speaker but its still lovely never the less glad i got it.

I was working outside the house fitting out a camper van and listening to internet radio on my ipad but only with difficulty as it didn’t have the volume. Now i leave the ipad inside on the window sill connected to this speaker inside the van. It works really well and the charge on the battery lasts all day. The sound is pretty good, maybe lacking a little bit of high frequency but no worse than my van radio. There’s plenty of volume and that’s what i needed. I tried the fm radio bit of it and it works reasonably well using the usb lead as an aerial but the signal faded in and out as i moved around the van so i didn’t bother with it. It would probably be ok with a bit more attention. Overall i’m delighted with it and it does the job i want at a price i was willing to pay.

Decent sound but a superb battery life. Quick and starightforward bluetooth connection and a good quality 3. I run this off my echo dot and one charge lasts 5-6 days of evening use.

Bought this to replace an old jam speaker. Sound quality is amazing g for a small speaker. The built in radio works well too – which i didn’t even realise it had.Connected to devices easily and quickly.

I bought this speaker for work, previously having owned a different model from anker. I thought this model would be better having an extra driver, but the result is disappointing. More drivers for the same amplifier means the speaker is very quiet. Aka same water pressure with more holes on your hose will give you less splash. Otherwise ok, mp3 player, radio, bluetooth connectivity all good. Just much quieter than other anker models.

I’ve had tge older version of this speaker for a while and it’s still going strong, so. Got this one as the spec is better, it’s definitely more powerful. Volume and bass-wise once changed. I havent put stopwatch on it) once initially paired to your deviced(i used it with my phone). It connect quickly every time. Its not a main speaker,bit ideal room only,all and all sound is great,and i’d certainly recomended it for anyone looking for a small ,yet powerful and easily connectable speaker.

The sound is amazing for its price. Really, really solid audio across the board – plays all manner of genres perfectly. The only complaint is the battery. Not necessarily the life of the battery, though that could do with improving. But there is a woman’s voice that yells: bluetooth connected. As you connect and disconnect, same with the battery being low. This time a high pitched beep-beep-beep which plays every 30 seconds for the last 15 or so minutes of charge. So as long as you have the charging cable handy, this device will for sure be amazing.

Small but loudimpress with the sound quality, also the battery last reasonable timeit comes two cables and instructions. Easy to setup only takes few minutes to connect to my phone.

It has really great sound and can get quite loud. It holds a good charge and is great otherwise. For the price i paid, i wasn’t expecting like amazing sound quality, but it’s pretty great.

Well i had browsed most of the reviews and as what the other says dont expect miracle you need to spend atleast 100 quid for this to happen. For me the sound quality is more than corresponding to its price which is 20 gbp. The mids and highs are very good well the base ofcourse is average but more than enough for a 20 quid.

Listen to music on your phone directly. It’s very convenient to use.

Had a few bluetooth speakers over the years and they always have a problem here or there, this one has great sound quality, good bass and no tin sound at high volume. Only con i found was battery life is around 3 hrs but it can be run off mains so it kinda makes up for it. But for the price this thing is solid. Can be used as a hands-free speaker but i havnt tried it.

This is a good product, the appearance of small portable, sound quality is not bad, it is worth having.

I recently purchased the anker bluetooth speaker and found it to be an excellent product, and wanted to purchase another bluetooth speaker and decided on this one, i must say it is an excellent product does way more than expected and the sound it great quality, well made, and easy to operate, this speaker has a voice control which is very neat, i would definitely recommend this item.

This pairs up to another bluetooth almost instantly. Great sound so easy to get used to and very nicely madeso pleased i purchased it.

The build quality is great for a budget speaker. There are 4 buttons on the top. A mode button to access the speakers built in radio function, a volume up and down button,a forward and reverse button allowing the user to skip tracks, as well as the play/answer calls button. The casing itself is nice and sleek with a matt finish to it, feels soft to the touch almost like a rubbery feel, allowing the user to hold it without slipping. Add to that there are two rubber feet to stop it slipping. I bought this due to being fed up of barely hearing music when played via my phones speaker and i wasn’t disappointed. The sound quality is fantastic, loud enough for what i use it for and with good bass, although at the highest volume the bass can distort just slightly. I also have to mention that the speaker comes with a port for you to plug in an sd card allowing for even greater versatility. If my phone is on charge i can just plug my sd card in and go to whichever room i want and still have music available. As well as having an aux port, and it charges using a standard charger (same charger that’s used for various other things like samsung phones, ps4 wireless pads etc).
