Works amazing and very good quality of sound.
This is an excellent product. Sold at a bargain price, the cost belies the quality. For a start, it’s a neat little gadget, pleasing on the eye and very lightweight, making its portability ideal. Opening the betron jrs40 into “pop-up” mode is easy, another positive design factor. But it’s the sound that really sets this speaker up there with the (little) big boys, because for a small system, it has a large, beefy sound, without feedback, tinny treble or any bass issues. The clarity is way beyond what i expected and i can’t recommend the betron highly enough. Comes with concise instructions and a protective drawstring bag.
Overall, this is great for the price. I use it as a laptop speaker as my new laptops speaker it quite quiet. This is perfect and has great sound quality for the price even at high volumes. When playing music this also has decent sound quality overall, yet as expected for the price is a bit muffly at higher volume levels. Overall for the price, fantasic.
It works as a speaker of sorts, but the cleverly hidden(on the bottom) jack cable is way too short, and now that i know where the jack plug can be found,i may consider buying another for my mobile having tested it on my laptop, than the speakers of which it is distinctly better. All in all an ingenious little thing at a very reasonable price, but i will need to buy a male to female jack plug lead to make it practical to use. The bass response and volume are surprisingly good.

I bought one of these to replace an x-mini that was starting to fail. I decided to go for a betron because i’d recently bought a set of headphones from them for my ipad, and i was exceptionally happy with that purchase. The sound quality on this speaker is excellent for its size. I use it primarily with my ipod when i’m catching up with my favourite programmes in the kitchen while cooking, but i also attach it to my computer or ipad when using skype or face-time. I’ve also attached it to my echo dot, and it works really well. This is a great product with a great sound if you want something with a physical connection rather than bluetooth.
Best speaker ive ever brought. We took it on holiday, for by the pool, on the balcony, on the beach. I brought the green one, loved it that much i brought my friend a purple one. Really loud for such a small speaker. Perfect for luggage and travelling, perfect for listening to music in different rooms too.
I bought this so that my wife and i could watch a holiday film or two on an old netbook which was a bit challenged in the deciibel department and it did the job beautifully. There was enough volume for four elderly ears and the sound quality is astonishing for such a small speaker. It is small enough to tuck into the smallest gap in a suitcase and light enough not to tip you over your weight limit. It is very very fit for purpose.
This is a good little speaker, which will take up very little space in my suitcase. It is of a concertina style when opened and provides a surprisingly good sound. It is easy to open and close for quick use and packing away.
Good sound quality, for such a small size. Usb cable provided for charging. Jack lead integrated for connecting to an audio device.
Have bought a similar product previously but they’ve been damaged over many years but didn’t hesitate to purchase these again. Volume is brilliant with just the one speaker and they are so small they are perfect for taking on holiday to plug into your i-pod. I find a lot of hotels although they have i-pod docs, are not compatible with the newest i-pod touch i have so will always bring my speaker. The only negative is they do crackle a little when you move them which i didn’t experience with the last speakers i’d purchased, so i think this is a different seller. Also they take ages to charge so i have 2 and use 1 whilst the other is charging.
This was ideal for taking away on holiday – compact enough to slip in hand luggage and impressive sound for such a small item. We just used it for background music while we were in the hotel room and it was perfect.
Battery life was not good however. I am assuming i didn’t charge the speak fully as it only last for about an hour. It does state that charging should take about 4 hours and i don’t think i left it charging long enough. I am pleased with the purchase so far.
Bought this after reading the reviews and i am happy with my purchase. Its a very neat little speaker, light, compact and works well.
In all honestly i have no idea how something so small can produce so much volume. It’s not for audiophiles, but for the rest of us this is a super buy. Connect this to a chromecast and control it from your phone with spotify and you have a great way to play music to your kids at night and turn it off from bed. You can of course do that with any speaker that has an input, but it’s more impressive with something like this because of the small form factor and the fact that you can fit it inside a coat pocket with room to spare. Comes in a lovely little pouch which holds the speaker and charger cable. I like how the output cable fits in the base of the unit. Structurally this feels solid. Even when expanding and collapsing the unit something so small shouldn’t feel so solid. It’s a great piece of engineering put it that way.
I have a galaxy android phone and an mp3 player and this works perfect for both. For such a small gadget the sound is great and also unlike some others there is some base as well o you do not get that awful tinny type sound.
I have a similar more expensive product from another manufacturer. I can’t tell the difference between the two products. Great sound for such a small speaker. I usually put a small extension lead on the short audio lead to make it easier to attach to my pc audio input but i still like the short lead sometimes when moving the pc around. You have to be careful how much volume you put through the speaker or it’ll distort – but that’s to be expected.
This is a marvellous little product. It’s slightly larger than the size of a golf ball and smaller than a tennis ball when closed. The audio jack and connecting wire sits neatly wrapped around the base. A simple twist operation opens it. I bought it to increase the volume on a portable dvd player which was producing a really muted,tinny sound. The difference using the betron in incredible. It not only increases the volume but improves the sound quality no end. It comes with a usb charging cable (no plug) and instructions all of which fit neatly into the little velveteen pouch supplied. It was purchased for purely practical purposes but it should become a design classic. It’s a beautifully designed , tactile little object.
Billiard ball size and similar weight; rubberised surface; easy to see where cables plug in;nice to hold; gives a pleasing sound whether closed or popped-open-it’s really just a way of letting more than one person listen to your headphones without putting them on. Definitely not hi-fi-,but hey, if you want hi-fi – get something bigger and more costly. I am delighted with it, so i instantly bought another for my brother.
Just bought two of these, one for a friend`s ipad, and one for myself for use with the music player on my phone. Had previously been using a fairly cheap docking speaker from argos ( cost about 20 quid) which was ok but a little tinny. I thought, this speaker wont be great, at the price, but will be good enough to play in the bathroom while showering. Paid about £6 each at the time, price has risen a little since then. But the sound quality is quite amazing, lovely rounded bass frequencies, no distortion, even at full volume, and even better when you ‘daisy chain ‘ 2 together, i will be buying more, even at the higher price. Only small criticism, i dont think the battery life is quite as long as is advertised, but still, with a 2 hour usb charge, it lasted about 6 hours, so its a small complaint. Cant reccomend highly enough.
Bought this for outside use with my mp3ideal for the job. Small enough to pop in a jacket pocket. I’m not looking for perfect sound. It’s adequate for me with a decent volume range to hear 10-20m away.
Let me say at the outset the only reason i did not give a 5 star rating is because the connection lead is very short (requiring an extension) and they are stiff and fiddly to open. That said they are truly impressive for what they are, cheap, small and eminently portable. I would unhesitatingly recommend them to anyone. I bought two of these for my wife who runs training courses for small groups and uses a laptop as part of her presentations. These little beauties are perfect, easily filling a large living room with a rich sound. I have tried these with ipod, mp3 player, an old fashioned walkman cd player and lap top; in all cases i have been well impressed, so much so i am ordering more for myself.
Treat this as volume enhancement for itunes on your phone rather than pure hi-fi and you will be pleasantly surprised at the quality and musicality. My grandson was treated to a slightly more expensive product which can really belt out some sound and fill a small room. The other product is larger and heavier, operates on blue tooth and is well reviewed. No,not when i consider that the object of my purchase was good sound quality, ease of use and diminutive size. I use it when i am working for a short time with my laptop at the dining table. I plug it into my iphone headphone jack then slide the on switch of the betron and i am straight into pink floyd’s sound of thunder. It sits about 2 feet away from the laptop and provides a great wrap round sound that soon places me in my own little bubble of sound without annoying the wife (well,no more than usual). 00, only one and a half times the size of a golf ball/table tennis ball, does a decent job of capturing the voice and instrumental content of my eclectic music library.
