Connects without any issues to both my phone (samsung s4 mini) and kindle fire, via bluetooth. Battery is also extremely good – haven’t had to charge it since its first charge a week ago, and it has been in use a lot.For the price you pay it is definitely worth it, you even get an aux cable (many of the other speakers i looked at didn’t include this). Does not come with a plug socket to charge the device, just the usb cable. However, most phones and devices have a usb socket that you can use as an alternative to charging on the laptop/computer (i’ve used it on my kindle fire socket) so it really shouldn’t be an issue for most peoplehighly recommend.
I’m learning to write reviews after a few weeks of usage as things often change. I’m happy to report that after quite a lot of use, this small speaker is doing well. There a a couple of other similar sized and priced speakers in my house and i think this has the better sound. Looks smart, holds the charge really well (better than the others) and so far (touch wood) i have had no problems at all. If i do i will return and amend this review.

Nice weight to it, seems well put together. Sound is pretty awesome for such a compact speaker and you can hear the bass tone really well. No problems pairing with asus tablet. Much better sound for watching programmes and listening to music. Sits on the coffee table and not obtrusive, in fact it looks quite smarthave tried music via 3. 5m jack and it is slightly better than bt but not much. Also will be used for audio with an acer led projector as the sound from the projector itself is not really up to much. It will be great because we can place the speaker behind us or in front of the screen. Just ordered one of these taotronics bluetooth transmitter (wireless stereo music, 3.
The wireless capability worked first time and works perfectly. Able to control the volume and pause/stop the track on the droid. Additionally, can also control the next/last track from the sender unit (phone/laptop etc). Gives a good rich sound with adequate bass end – good enough for my disco/soul/r&b tracks. For its size (not much bigger than my fist) it produces a good level of sound (stated as 5w). A slight downside i can envisage is that there is no way to check the battery level – i assume it will stop working without warning. So far it appears to have a good battery life. 99 (less than half price) and with the free uk delivery made it excellent value.
Reviews from purchasers :
- Equal to the Anker Soundcore Mini
- 10/10 quality. Unclear volume.
- Good, effective little BT speaker
Bought this azatom speaker a few weeks ago, and wanted to listen to it over a couple of weeks before reviewing. Wow, it’s absolutely great, was not expecting the kind of sound that it gives. Not even slightly tinny, good amount of bass and very clear mid range. Connects very easily to bluetooth without any hiccups, the volume is more than loud enough, in a large ‘through’ lounge, it is too loud on maximum volume. Won’t replace your hi-fi system, but it isn’t meant to. I have a lot of music on my phone, and this is the perfect way of listening to it. Looking forward to using it in the garden in the summer (if we get one ).
Totally brilliant better then my lingyi speaker. The bag i brought for it looks great aswell. The sound is very clear even at high volume definatly will be buying another. Just to add the pink is a lovely girly colour loving it really pleased.
We need to be clear, this is not a speaker for audiophiles, it’s the size of a child’s fist and if you know anything about acoustics you’d know that for audio purity you’d need a much larger device like a b&w zepplin costing £££’s, try dropping one of those in your laptop bag. So let me list the main points with this speaker. Bad points:- you can’t connect a pair for stereo sound- if you use public transport those unruly youths with their tinny mobile phone speakers are about to get a lot loudergood points:- power, it has it in buckets, after reading reviews stating the power it still managed to surprise me. – ease of use, bluetooth or cable simple quick efficient. – power adapter, micro usb, who hasn’t got at least 3 of these adapters lying around now that they are the cell phone standard. Internal battery really does last 10 hours, quite remarkable. – aesthetics, good looking design even comes with microfiber cloth to keep the black shiny, thoughtful. – size, very compact and portable. – audio quality, struggles at full volume with some feeds mainly in the high frequency band but like i said it is loud so turning it down to 90%-95% (still loud) keeps the speaker within it’s limits which is why i am not classifying this a negative just something to be aware of, i have only found this to be an issue on a couple of tracks with very pitched female vocals everything else plays fine at 100% volume. – build quality, looks solid, feels solid.
This is a really good product, and very reasonably priced. It’s a good little size to take it away with you but volume wise, it’s pretty loudthe quality of sound is also very good considering how small the speaker it. It’s very easy to use and very straight forward to connect to it. Once connected, the rang is good too, i used mine recently for a family bbq and had no issues with leaving the speaker in the house and taking my phone outside. The only problem i had was that the speaker cut out a couple of times and i had to turn it off and on again an reconnect. I’m not sure if this is due to signal or the fact it needed charging but it was a little frustrating after the third time. Regardless of this, it’s a great product and i would definitely recommend.
I bought this for my good lady as i’d just bought her the time 2 tablet from amazon and to our surprise and disgust we found that the speaker on the time 2 is absolutely appalling. We needed a speaker to help with this situation so i went on a good review mission for an ok speaker to at least listen to content on the time 2. I settled on this one as it had a review on youtube of the sound it sounded pretty loud and good. I just didn’t expect it to be as good as it is. It connects pretty well and let me tell you, the sound is quite loud. It’s not got that usual tinny sound that you would associate with tiny speakers. It’s pretty clear and well balanced for a wee speaker. Obviously, don’t expect bose quality sound that blows your head off with every little thing audible.
I recently bought the home hub by the same company and loved it so much i treated my husband to the droid. Suitably ‘darth vader’ looking for my sci-fi mad spouse, the droid did not disappoint. If you have trouble pairing it, keep your finger on the button after switching on bt. The instructions make it seem like you should release the button and then re-press to pair. Sound is impressive from such a small device. Not something if you are a real audiophile, but perfectly acceptable for use in the bathroom or kitchen. I look forward to seeing what azatom come up with next.
Given its’ modest size, it packs quite a punch – and if you carefully choose the surface you place it on, the sound can be even further improved. Bluetooth syncing to my ipod and nexus7 tablet was quick and easy. Battery life is very good – although i haven’t kept track of how many hours it has been used, i certainly wouldn’t dispute the claimed 10 hours life. It feels solid and well put together – and looks classy. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to a friend. Edit: i see azatom now claim a 15 hour battery life – i think that is perfectly possible.
A few other reviews mentioned that the speaker isn’t very loud so i wasnt expecting much in terms of volume, however i was disappointed, i have an iphone se and the speaker was barely louder than my phone is. The overall quality of the music/bass is quite good. I bought this product on sale and definitely wouldn’t pay full price for it. To summarise, this speaker is good for personal use (in an already quiet setting) but not a lot else.
Got one of these on the basis of a recommendation as i wanted an ultra-portable bluetooth. A friend had been waving a jbl unit of similar size under my nose, but my instinct led me here, and i’m glad i followed. I listen to a lot of bass-heavy music, and this does the best job of bass reproduction of any small speaker i’ve heard. . Daisy-chain a couple of these together and you would be seriously good to go. Though if you’re in that market i’d go for the azatom storm, which is less than the price of two of these and is an absolute killer. Avoid the cheapo high-street imports (many of which will cost you more than this) and get one of these.
Only had it a short while but used it every day. I connect to my alexa and have music with my shower, the sound quality is very good for such a small unit. I would recommend this speaker.
I have used a number of bluetooth speakers over the years and i must say that this is easily the best that i have purchased for the following reasons. Volume is outstanding and an increase of at least three times each units stand alone volume. The clarity of the speaker is crystal clear. Paired to my samsung tablet 10. 1, my samsung gt-19300 mobile phone and even my panasonic 50′ tv within seconds. Delivery was very prompt and item was well packaged. Instruction manual included is very simple to follow. Don’t hesitate to buy this as you will not be disappointed.
Make no mistake i love my hifi when i have the time, and dare i say, permission. But when away from my beloved tanoys, traveling or just in a different part of the house it’s useful to have some sort of substitute. Step foward the azatom droid. This device is hugely impressive, possessing a surprisingly wide frequency range. The bass has to be heard to be believed. Indeed friends have not believed that such a small device is responsible for what they are hearing. Of course they do have some limitations, and corner placement can improve the low extension further. It’s strength lies in the purity of the sound, even at relatively high volume. Finally the icing on the cake is the battery duration, charging being a very infrequent requirement, measured in weeks to months.
Superb bit of kit, 12 yr old daughter loves it, she wanted something to pop in her bag to increase the volume of her phone on the walk to work, she chose this, if she keeps making decisions like this might get her to make a few for me 😉 nice, clear and plenty of bass, it has a punchy sound i have never heard on a speaker of this size. Aesthetically very nice too, the chrome really sets it off, only this morning said to her that i would love to hear these speakers in a stereo configuration, with separate channels, now that would sound very nice.
Solid weight with excellent sound. Ideal for phone, tablet or laptop. I like it so much that over time, i now have 3. For the size and price, excellent value.
Blooming great i got one for myself first and now have got this for my friend and now it is snowballing every body likes it the sound is awesome for the price i can well recomend it, well worth the money the fact that you can also connect to a laptop etc and get a much better sound as well the whole familey now want one each and have told them where to get this item really good.
I’ve been using this product for around 10 months now, still going strong. At the time i was looking for the best small portable speaker around. It may not be the the loudest but it more than makes up for that with punchy bass coming from that passive sub woofer. My mother has a smaller anker which produces louder sound, however it has no depth and no bass, leaving me feeling like the songs being played are incomplete. I have also bought the popular ‘hmdx hx-p230bla-eu jam bluetooth wireless portable speaker’ for a friend and similar results arise as the anker, its definitely louder than the droid if that’s what you’re but the sound lacks dimension and the bass is near non existent. Overall i give this 4* if the bring out new version with an boost of 10-20 decibels making it louder it would be perfect.
