KitSound Invader Universal Portable Mini Speaker – Happy

A cracking little speaker with great sound. . So pleased with it ive bought another [although its gone up £4 since i bought this one highly recommend. ]

Excellent sound quality, small and lightweight and you can link them together too. Really nice sound and the battery once charged lasted much longer than others i have tried. Great and for a really good price too.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • I was looking to replace my 2. 0 mains
  • wow
  • music for the mind

Great for travelling around with my tablet.

Got these as a bargain on amazon. They work and look well and are a nice present for the ‘mobile’ generation.

Seems about right for the money.

Wouldn’t go on holiday without it.

Brilliant, easy to set up and great sound.

Appears well made, good sound quality but it is not loud enough even with its own volume setting at maximum. The i-phone is louder albeit with less bass.

Good sound and go loud enough for my needs.

You cant expect a concert hall for this price, but its good enough and the bass unit is a nice touch. Chargin it up is a bit of a pain, one lead links to another lead. So u need to remember where they both are an keep them together. And one day you will lose them.

Decent battery life, very loud. Sound quality is ok for a 5£ speaker. I was surprised by the bass.

For a small speaker like this i was honestly so so impressed with it. We used this in hospital so we could have music and it was louder than my laptop. I love it and i am so glad i purchased it.

Impressive for the size and price. Liked it so much i bought a second one.

Very very pleased did not expect the sound quality to be this good but wow, would have been happy paying full price well worth it.

This is the third one of these mini speakers i have bought as they are inexpensive, good sound quality. This one arrived the next day with prime and was well pakaged.

Once i worked out that the power button has to be pressed for a few seconds to turn the unit on – it works exceptionally well. Battery seems to last for days.

Brilliant once you get it to work. Instructions should tell you that you need to hold done the on/off key for three seconds to turn it on and off.

SingDeRing IPX7 Waterproof Outdoor Superior Stereo Mini Speakers – Good value for money

This little thing packs a punch and is so nicely concealable in the kitchen – integrates well with alexa too. Sound quality is impressive at the price and size – solid build and great quality.

Couldn’t believe the sound quality we used it at our family bbq and it was loud and clearhighly recommend.

Arrived well packed and secure in a smart box, with clear instructions and it is a great looking, solid unit. Sound quality is excellent and my wife is very happy as it looks great, isn’t too big but she can stream top qualty sounding music from her phone all day.

We bought this for our holiday to butlins. Easy to connect and easy to transport.

We needed a cheap bluetooth speaker for a trip, so we decided to give this one a try as it had some good reviews. Despite not being a big name brand, our experience with this bluetooth speaker has been good so far. The sound is on level with most wireless speakers in this price range and it has a good battery life of 6 hours. It does take a good while to charge though. Still, a good investment for long journeys and outdoor family events.

  • great
  • . I
  • Very pleased indeed

This speaker was a real surprise. It is so much more powerful than expected. At full volume the sound quality is excellent. Pairing with my phone was very easy and i am very pleased overall.

KitSound Mini Buddy and Portable Rechargeable Universal Wired Speaker : Way too cute to send back.

Sound quality is surprising good for the price.

Considering the size and price, this is quite a nice little speaker. Ideal for your phone, music player or ds console. The battery life isn’t too bad either. Obviously it’s not going to blast your ear drums out but it’s ideal to take on holiday or use in the garden. Kids (and the young at heart) will love it.

The speaker came quicker than expected, is a lot better than i thought it would be, very loud for such a small speaker, the design is a novelty which everyone loves. I am very tempted to buy other animals to make a little set.

Like it, but after a month it has died, i turn it on and nothing happens. I have another one, so hoping it does not happen to that one too?read a few questions to try and charge it so will see. Really disappointed as it was a present for a friend, she is so upset as she said its a neat little thing. Would have given more stars if item worked properly.

Another present for my girlfriend she loved it.

I’m so thrilled at this product. I needed something easily portable to play music in my workplace and it’s just the ticket. The quality and sound is surprisingly good considering its size. It states charging time and playback is 3 hours, but i have found the longer its charged for, the longer the playback. And with so many different creatures to choose from, i am tempted to buy another, just because they’re so cute and practical.

I bought these speakers to plug in to my computer at work when working night shifts. The sound quality for a cheap speaker is absolutely amazing, considering you can charge it through your standard phone charger as well, there is no hassle with making sure you have batteries to hand. The only downside to this product is that there is no volume control built in to the speaker; you only control the sound through the device that you’ve plugged them in to. The speakers are pretty loud by default though, and even when on full volume there doesn’t appear to be much of a compromise on sound quality. Wouldn’t think twice about buying this as a gift for someone, or recommending it for someone in a similar situation to me.

This has a very big sound for such a tiny speaker. We use it in the car, plugged into my phone. I have a very recent xperia smart phone which has good speakers, but this penguin beats it and can be heard much better over the noise of the motorway. The battery lasts for around 8 hours and then can be recharged using a usb cable plugged into your computer.

These made great secret santa present for my son’s school friends and cousins. The sound quality and depth is great for such a small speaker. Will buy other styles in the future.

It’s loud for something so tiny. I’ve only had it a couple of days so i can’t comment on its longevity yet. The sound is a touch tinny but otherwise fine.

Absolutely amazing bit of kit, bought one for myself and for my boss. They work a treat and a very compact and cute.

Loud enough for a child, quiet small and cute looking little bee speaker.

A nice golf ball sized speaker, good sound.

Cute little speaker, seems to work brilliantly. Only reason for of giving five stars is i havent used it much yet, so not sure. Has a headphone jack attached so plugs straight into mp3 player which is ideal.

Only problem i have is my device sometime doesn’t recognise that it’s connected for a few minutes. However this is probably my devices fault. The battery doesn’t last long if you leave it on all day. However if your like me and you occassionally use it and turn it off regularly then the battery can last for months without recharge you just have to remember to turn it off when your not using it. Charges from computer easily. Wish the aux wire was a bit longer but it’s fine.

A really cute speaker with fantastic clear sound. My good friend was thrilled when she saw it and when we tested it out.

Bought this for my 2 year old son as he loves anything you plug in and if it plays music it’s a bonus. The sound that comes from it is a good level of sound for such a small object. And love the different animals you can get.

Wasnt expecting this to be so loud its great i love it.

It’s a good speaker, the only con i guess is needing to charge it, but the charge lasts a fair amount of time. Sound will just stop playing when it needs another charge.

This little speaker was so worth the money. The sound is not spectacular however you are paying for a tiny speaker that is small enough to fit in your pocket. Perfect for carrying around with you and great sound.

It’s a fab and funky little thing, and it arrived sooner than i expected. The sound quality is really good considering the size. I love using it and it looks great.

Two friends now ordering one also.

Great looking and good sound for the price, rechargeable battery lasts ages.

Bought this as a treat for the girlfriend who wanted to listen to thd radio in the bathroom, so this hooked up to her ipad then using bbc iplayer to connect it. Rather loud for a little thing, easy to set up, android phone found it straight away as did ipad. Put on charge for a few hours using the same cable as my samsung phone. After a few hours of playback, i gotta say this is a fantastic little speaker, much better than i’d expected. Easy to set up and control using the buttons on top and or the phone.

Amazing little speaker, so pleased with it. Small, durable, loud and clear sound. Connects with all my devices including kindle, iphone and chrome book. Worth far more than i paid, extremely pleased, would recommend to anyone.

Excellent sound, arrived quickly and made a fab christmas pressie.

You know its not gonna sound like a bose – but its worth buying just for the novelty factor – mine sits atop my cistern.

Great sound from this speaker. I was surprised how loud it is and the depth of sound.

Daughter will love this stocking filler.

Really good for the money i paid.

Amazing item loud as well worth the money.

Fun speaker does what you need it todo great sound.

Looks good , sounds good & easy to use. No problem connecting it to my iphone. The usb cable is tiny but works as it should & good value for the money.

Amazing little speaker, was surprised at the sound and quality was a gift for my sister and she loves it.

Excellent thanks very much my daughter loves it.

When i received the speaker it’s weight and quality of materials surprised me. I easily paired it with my phone and alexa. First time i played music through the speaker i was pleasantly surprised at the quality that came from the unit ,it had a deep bass and excellent highs crystal clear sound i was very impressed and would purchase extra for family members.

Sounds great and works really well.

Bought this as a present for my daughter’s friend’s 14th birthday so haven’t tested how it works hence a 4 star rating. It looks fab, nice size and looks like a quality item. Daughter thought it was perfect, just what she’d hoped to receive and the friend was really pleased with it – that’s all i can say.

Bought this for my nieces christmas present, and she really likes it.

Simple set up and powerful sound, better than a couple of others i have ordered at higher prices and looks great too.

It sounds better than expected but don’t expect is good as jbl. You can sync your bluetooth device really easy and it will work with your laptop or mobile phone. The volume can be controlled on the jamoji or on your device. What i like about this product is also the design its super cute.

Libratone ZIPP Copenhagen Edition Wireless Speaker : Modern piece of equipment with great sound

The sound clarity is first class, controls simple and easy to use. All the advertised features worked first time, great product bit a bit pricey.

It is the most i have ever spent on a treat for myself but it is worth every penny. It is so elegant, unique and just generally beautiful to look at and use. It is basically a small surround sound speaker. Wherever i am in my flat i can still hear my music perfectly. The sound is just out of this world, i have honestly never heard anything like it. I am not very technical and don’t understand all the numbers on the box (i. 3” neodynium woofer/ 60 watt total power, across 2 dsp enhanced amplifier channels/ 19v 1. 8a output) but i know that i’m hearing instruments in songs i never noticed before because every single note is so crystal clear.

The main benefit and attraction of the libratone zipp mini speaker is that it’s a portable wireless speaker of course, but when you’re relying on apps, wifi and bluetooth to set it up, you should be prepared for it being complicated and for things not to run terribly smoothly with your home setup. I’d also lower expectations as to how good sound you are going to get from this speaker, as it’s not as good as you might reasonably expect from a wireless speaker with a high-end price point and five-speaker driver specs. To get the libraphone up and running for a start, you’re going to need an iphone or an android device. When i tried to install the app from the playstore on my android asus tablet, it informed me that my system wasn’t compatible with the current version of the app, and offered no alternative. If you have other device options fair enough. If you don’t, you’re going to come unstuck at the first hurdle. I was able to download the app onto my android smartphone and followed the instructions, but was unable to make a connection to my home wifi. Every time it attempted to select and auto connect to the speaker, it dropped my 2g channel connection, leaving me with no internet to complete the operation. Manual connection was no better, just returning me to a loop of the ‘speaker found’ screen with choice of auto or manual connection. Searching through support on libratone’s website – the set-up booklet is very poor and of no help at all – it suggested another way to set up wifi connection from a windows pc connected to the broadband wifi router.

I use wireless speakers in various parts of my house (mission aero and cam audio minx 100/200). While this libratone doesn’t quite have the power and presence of those above it certainly punches above its weight as far as sound performance goes. It’s very light and portable however it seems to have a mind of its own with respect to bluetooth connection. This might be my laptop but its sitting right next to it right now with no sign of pairing even though the computer says its connected. I expect i’ll have to shut down the latter and reboot as that’s happened several times to date. Rather frustratingly there is nothing in the skimpy manual to tell you what’s going on and the limited speaker display is equally uncommunicative. When it does connect it seems to remain stable ok. There is the usual drop off in sound as compared to airplay but as soon as i connected using the latter the drop out was intolerable-probably because i’m a level up stairs from the virgin hub-your speaker will only be as good as your wireless signal strength. Its got a very prominent zip (rather than hide it they name the speaker after it) which means you can swap the ‘pepper black’’ cover for an alternative option—to my mind it looks more like washed out black sock which if you remove reveals cheapish plastic look.

  • Stylish, Sturdy, Easy to use and excellent audio quality
  • very good sound quality
  • Newly to this technology

Libratone ZIPP Copenhagen Edition Wireless Speaker (360 ° Sound, Wlan, Bluetooth, MultiRoom, Airplay 2, Spotify Connect, 10h Rechargeable Battery) – Raspberry Red

    by entering your model number.

First off, this looks great. And as others have said, it comes packaged stylishly also. It really does feel like an event to open, and it is a real pleasure to use, with lovely tactility and some fantastic on-off sounds. Compared to similarly priced speakers from bose or sony, this is just in a different class. I find myself sometimes judging its sonic performance harshly because it feels like it ought to cost 2-3 times as much. Even saying which, it does have a really nice sound. The treble and midrange are particularly sweet, and encourage listening at quite modest volumes for the sheer musicality of the experience, rather than at screaming rock levels. It does trip up a bit with particularly dense, bass heavy, mixes, sometimes becoming muddy and confused, and losing depth. This seems to be independent of volume, and appears to be a feature of the design, rather than limitation of the power or amplification. I would expect these might be lesser issues with the non-mini version, which isn’t a quantum more expensive, and which, if you have the space, would probably be worth a listen if you enjoy more rock/layered/dense music than vocal-driven or acoustic.

Easier to set up than anticipated, very good sound quality. Dial top control can give issues , but it’s a learning curve.

 a compact, portable and highly impressive speaker. Really easy to setup – download the official app to setup the speaker on your home wi-fi network, or just connect via bluetooth. (or direct cable connection into the aux input) the benefit with connecting to your wi-fi is that anyone else on the network can easily connect to it. The app also has some nice eq presets to suit your environment, e. The outdoor preset to get a more punchy response. Overall very impressed with the sound quality and it certainly goes loud enough to use as a main speaker for a decent sized party, even if you’re out in the garden.

======edit : it has been nearly a week since i wrote the review below, and my opinions about the zipp mini are starting to shift. I still stand by what i said, and my four star rating still stands. My review describes the first few weeks of ownership. But i am going to add comments to my review if anything significant comes up. One significant change is that i am now seriously tempted to buy a second zipp mini. ======the zipp mini copenhagen edition arrives in a fabulous black and white box with silver trim. It looks like it might contain an expensive bottle of champagne. On the outside it says nothing about android. It has plenty of logos but you get a strong impression it only works with apple devices. Maybe that’s libratone’s target market – people who prize the look of things and a perception of quality, even if in reality this may be a slight fiction.

The first thing you notice about the libratone zipp mini copenhagen edition speaker is the weight; this is a high quality, solidly built product. Taking the top off of the cylindrical box reveals the circular instruction booklet. Removing that uncovers the charger, the charging cable and the neat cable holder, all sitting in a polystyrene holder, which is also the top packing for the speaker. This fits so tightly into the box, that it took some time, and a screwdriver to extract it so the speaker can be removed. The speaker has a wool cover that zips onto the base. One cover is provided, but six colours are available. Before use, the speaker must be charged. The charger plug has two adapters, 2-pin or standard uk 3-pin; attach the appropriate adapter, plug in, attach the lead into the socket at the base of the speaker and switch on. The led blinks slowly and then stays on solidly when the speaker is fully charged. Remove the charger and press the power button for three seconds to switch on; connection to your device can be by wi-fi or bluetooth.

Great product , great sound.

 having used countless wireless speakers i was pretty keen to find out what made this one different from the others. Firstly we used this for a party which was excellent. The sound was great because it didn’t muffle as we turned it up full, it was easy to move – although we didn’t need to move it around to house because the sound travelled well. It was quick and easy to mute with the cool hand cover feature too. The battery life was great so we decided to take it with us when we went away for the weekend. The look of the speaker is great and i love the idea of the changes covers. We got asked lots to questions about the speaker as everyone seemed interest in our new gadgetthere are a few negatives. The instructions are so minimal when my speaker started to beep at me i had no idea why. I checked the battery level and that was fine but the speaker continues to beep.Also, its not the easiest speaker to connect to unless you have the app.

Now that the zipp has the new updated app software it is just about perfect. Not only does it look cool, have a great charge capacity and sound amazing, but it now operates even better than ever. Smooth, almost flawless, near 360 degree sound, with great bass, as well other sound levels and a lot of volume for such a relatively small unit. This is the best portable sound unit that i’ve ever owned by far.

This a a fab speaker to position wherever you want in your house and take with you from room to room. Into the garden, garage, allotment, beach etc. The 360 degree surface ensures that unlike old school speakers, this gives you surround sound just using the one speaker. It can be turned up high for parties and still be as effective with no sound distortion. As i have a dab radio in the kitchen, i’ve tended to use this mainly for listening to music from my phone on. But the quality is hugely improved through it. The app was easy to download and use and the usb port is handy to be able to keep your phone charged if you’re streaming your tunes through it, not necessary if you’re indoors. But an added function for outdoor use. The volume control is elegant. All you need is a slight touch to turn the sound up or down or mute it. In reality though, i would be very unlikely to spend £250 on a speaker so for that alone i have deducted a star. However, if you like your music and can afford it, it’s a stylish addition to the home.

I like this idea of taking a speaker to any location you want, its extremely heavy so probadly not good for carting around in your backpack for long but useful for the car. I can listen to things down stairs in my living room and then take it to the bedroom and plug my phone and internet radio etc in via bluetooth or wifi though i found the blue tooth the best method as its very easy to set up but the wifi i couldn’t get working after several attempts at trying to find the speaker etc hence only 4 stars. The sound quality is pretty decent clear highs and good decent bass for a single speaker this size. It dosen’t vibrate due to the rubber base. Its also pretty loud if you want to pump up the volume a bit. The usb socket lets you charge a phone especially if your listening to a lot of music on the go. Had it on an hour so far no need to re charge the speaker yet. You can of course just leave it plugged in to the mains if your at home for instance. Because of the aux 1/8 inch socket you can plug your laptop, phone, or anything else in. The app is just a let down as i can’t seem to get the wifi to work but the app is very basic anyway, its best to just use spotify, radio app and music apps using the bluetooth (or wifi if you get it working).

I bought this zipp mini instead of a regular bluetooth speaker due to the internet radio functionality. The long battery life and ability to save 6 preset stations make it great for taking into the garden, garage etc. Stations can be accessed without the need for s smart device. The app is free and easy to use. As well as station presets you can adjust the eq of the speaker to suit it’s positioning. The speaker looks awesome and feels like a really solid build. Every detail is considered right down to the packaging. Small things like a cable weight for the charger to prevent it falling down the back of a table was a great touch. It sounds great, clarity in the highs with rich warm bass for a speaker this size. The volume is more than enough to fill a decent size living room.

I am struggling to express in words how this product makes me feel. I like to show them off to my friends and family. Check this out, look at what it can do. I would be embarrassed to say “i spent £200 odd on this”. It’s not that this is a bad speaker. The sound quality and loudness are fairly decent.

It’s small, portable and surprisingly has a lot of bass. Despite having a lot of bass everything is very clear not like other speakers out there. It’s fairly loud, definitely will get your neighbours attention. It has a built-in battery so you can move it around without worrying about wires or having to plug it in. The battery lasts about 8 hours on a full charge. You can connect to it using bluetooth or wifi. I used it with an android phone, iphone and my laptop and couldn’t notice any difference in the sound quality however the range is far better when on wifi. This depends on the range of your wifi router tho.

Really happy i spent much more than i normally do on a portable speaker. Audio quality – really impressive. I was obviously expecting this with the price i paid for it and also the size of the speaker. The clarity is second to none. Clear and crisp high frequencies and a warm, deep mid range. If i was going to be overly critical, the bass could be a little better, but it is something that most people would be more than happy with. Build quality / design – bit different to most speakers in the market. The shape allows a 360 sound which is really important for me. It is fairly bulky and heavy, but i like this, feels valuable and doesn’t move when playing at high volumes ( which a lot of speakers do ). The fabric cover over the drivers gives this speaker a point of difference and style.

 this beastie of a speaker certainly chucks out some quality sound but there’s so much more to tell you about it than that. I love the portability, with an 8 hour battery life it will be joining me on holiday, on my travels, around various rooms in the house and anywhere i need to keep my tunes. You can save 5 internet radio stations using an app which can then be selected with a touch of the control panel on the top, which also offers volume control, track skip and stereo pairing of another libratone speaker. I recorded a quick video comparing this to a sonos play3. My previous favorite speaker. The sonos is still a great speaker and after numerous tests i might even say has the better bass notes but when you add together all the other benefits of the zipp mini there’s no competition. . The zipp mini supports bluetooth streaming meaning i can play audio from any device playing any source. I am a big youtube fan and it has always frustrated me that i couldn’t play the sound through sonos. :d not to mention that the zipp can be battery powered, so it can come into the shower room or into the garden easier than running extension cables for the sonos.

KitSound Mini Buddy and Portable Rechargeable Universal Wired Speaker : Perfect for carrying around with you and great sound

Loud enough for a child, quiet small and cute looking little bee speaker.

Brilliant sound, i can now throw away the two speakers and loads of wires i currently have to plug into my laptop. Wish the jackplug was a little longer and that the usb charger socket was on the top as you cannot stand the speaker up with the charger in.

Another present for my girlfriend she loved it.

They work great alone and they get even better when you link them together (we have two)really powerful and a good full sound. Top notch – i cannot recommend these little things highly enough.

Great sound for something so small. Good price though some sellers looking for £20+ ——–really?.

KitSound Mini Buddy and Portable Rechargeable Universal Wired Speaker with USB Charging Cable Compatible with Smartphones , Green , KSNMBAI : Sound quality is excellent ideal to take on holiday etc.

Cheeky and chunky sound, used using eq on device.

The speaker came quicker than expected, is a lot better than i thought it would be, very loud for such a small speaker, the design is a novelty which everyone loves. I am very tempted to buy other animals to make a little set.

It’s a good speaker, the only con i guess is needing to charge it, but the charge lasts a fair amount of time. Sound will just stop playing when it needs another charge.

These made great secret santa present for my son’s school friends and cousins. The sound quality and depth is great for such a small speaker. Will buy other styles in the future.

Which was a very pleasant suprise.

A nice golf ball sized speaker, good sound.

Bought this for myself as a little treat last xmas. Considering the size, this is a powerful little penguin. I adore this and have since bought a zebra and a tiger for friends, after they fell in love with mine. So compact i have lost it around the house a couple of times. Should really use the keyring aspect of it.

This has a very big sound for such a tiny speaker. We use it in the car, plugged into my phone. I have a very recent xperia smart phone which has good speakers, but this penguin beats it and can be heard much better over the noise of the motorway. The battery lasts for around 8 hours and then can be recharged using a usb cable plugged into your computer.

Wow i i am amazed by sound quality and base and clearness for such a small and cheap portable speaker well done kit sound i have have a kit sound home speaker which got me into kit sound products with is also amazing for price. I use mini buddy for listening to online radio hip hop station and meditation music which it’s so handy and amazing for.

Wasnt expecting this to be so loud its great i love it.

This is my second kitsound mini buddy. It works as it should and it looks cute. The only downside to this speaker is that the socket to plug the charger in is not usb like my other speaker. It’s one of those small round sockets instead. So i have to make sure i have the right cable for each speaker, instead of being able to use one for both.

I bought these speakers to plug in to my computer at work when working night shifts. The sound quality for a cheap speaker is absolutely amazing, considering you can charge it through your standard phone charger as well, there is no hassle with making sure you have batteries to hand. The only downside to this product is that there is no volume control built in to the speaker; you only control the sound through the device that you’ve plugged them in to. The speakers are pretty loud by default though, and even when on full volume there doesn’t appear to be much of a compromise on sound quality. Wouldn’t think twice about buying this as a gift for someone, or recommending it for someone in a similar situation to me.

It’s a good little gadget but the packaging is badly done as the charger is underneath the item in a box and if you don’t know it’s there it gets thrown away with packaging as this one did and i know of 2 other people who have done the same. So my granddaughtet who i bough it for can’t use it.

A really cute speaker with fantastic clear sound. My good friend was thrilled when she saw it and when we tested it out.

Cute little speaker, seems to work brilliantly. Only reason for of giving five stars is i havent used it much yet, so not sure. Has a headphone jack attached so plugs straight into mp3 player which is ideal.

Braven BRV-Pro Portable Bluetooth Speaker – /Cyan/ : nice, add’s about 1 or 2 dots a day

Rugged and waterproof with outstanding sound quality. You can attach other bits to the top of this, like extra battery pack-solar panel-led light box or a multi tool. Had a wee look and the addons are they are not too expensive. Well happy with this bluetooth speaker as i can even charge my phone using the built in usb-cracking.

This was a great purchase which i am completely satisfied with. Great sound, great versatility and a good price from amazon.

I required a outdoor water resistant speaker that i can hear from a distancethis ticks all the boxes. The battery can easily last a day or more depending how loud i blast it. The sound quality is not bad considering both the price and that its designed to be water resistant. Can’t fault bravendirect, i got it for £139. 99 including delivery which is great as its priced at £189. For a sub £200 speaker, i would recommend it. Though i have not heard the bose which comes highly recommended. There are more expensive speakers but if you are looking sub£150 via there direct service, then this smashes the competition.

  • Braven outdoor speaker
  • Great sound and strength.
  • Good quality item

    by entering your model number.
  • 15 hours of wireless playtime

  • Built-in noise-cancelling microphone can be used to take and make calls hands-free

Good quality item, very durable has survived numerous camping trips and festivals. Slightly tinny sound i think due to the metal case, but easily overridden with the eq controls on phone.

Absolutely brilliant blue tooth speaker – i already had a braven that my son “borrowed” so decided to donate that to him & buy myself another. Major improvement in that the cap is attached where the other one was loose & so prone to being mislaid.

Sound quality not as expected. Used to own a big jambox (which got ruined), and i thought this would be a suitable replacement . Compared it to my friends bose soundlink mini, which by far has a clearer sound. However, this thing is loud enough for a small room, pretty convenient, and good looking .

Stupidly expensive but it sounds good and is very robust. Works well for hands free calls. Good choice for mobile music.

This speaker was fantastic, great sound quality. However 4 months down the line it won’t turn on at all. I am not sure whether this has something to do with the charger being broken or speakers blown. Would i be able to contact the seller, or exchange it?.

Got this to replace my earlier model. The pro has a far better base and kicks out an impressive sound for a speaker of this size.

One great speaker, definitely better than the beats pill xl.

Great product, very durable. Sound quality is slightly lacking for size and cost. Perfect for outdoor pursuits/pool/beach, if just for the house look elsewhere.

This braven brv-x is a fantastic portable bluetooth speaker that delivers powerful audio in a rugged design. Pros:+ powerful audio performance, with rich bass and crisp highs. + rugged, water-resistant design. + speakerphone functionality. Cons:- audio performance too sculpted for purists. A decent wireless durable speaker, but worth comparing to these bose wireless speakers: http://amzn.

I like my audio and have many £000’s worth of gear ranging from full surround, stereo, headphones and portable speakers. I’ve been on the lookout for something that is portable (i. Runs from battery) but retains quality. On the whole this beast does all that. It is great outdoors and will give a good volume and retain base. The louder you have it the shorter the battery life, but i have never run out of power before time yet, and on general running around 50% it will give you a full working day of tunes no problem. 50% on this device is way louder than other smaller speakers that may quote longer battery life, so at low volume this thing will last days if needed. It is well made with no frills. It’s just a very large bluetooth speaker.

I read many, many reviews on a lot of portable speakers that claimed to be loud enough for parties and outdoor events. I purchased several and sent most back because they didn’t live up to their claims. You simply couldn’t hear them once past about 10 feeti’ve not had the braven long, and am not an audiophile. I just like to hear my ipod music when i’m doing stuff. The main reason i’m posting this is to confirm that it absolutely lives up to its claim that it is suited for outdoor usewe work outside in the garden and fields quite a lot (over about 2 acres) and i was looking for a relatively portable speaker that could be heard when we were moving around. Something that could be heard more than 10 ft away, but that didn’t distort the sound too much (like so many do). ‘loud’ is a relative term and means different things to different people it seems. Loud in a room is nothing like loud outside, where you have no reflective surfaces like walls and a ceiling to bounce the sound off. It’s very hard to make something sound loud outside that doesn’t end up distorted and awful. So, when the braven brv-x arrived, i was wearily hopeful but didn’t get too excited.

Brilliant piece of equipment. For £100 delivered i couldn’t fault it.

Not the cheapest portable speaker, but by far the best all round unit we have purchased, including bose sound systems. Great outdoors, come rain or shine.

Got it for very good price, top hi quality sound and volume, i love the strap.

Pity its not fully water proof only thing stopping it getting 5 stars.

I haven’t use my braven much but so far so go. It connects via bluetooth fairly quickly and easily. My only let down is, me being a base head i thought the base would be a bit more banging.

It is a very good speaker, however the plastic clip to keep water from the usb and aux port breaks easily. After getting a replacement the same thing happened again and am now out of the return date to get another replacement/money back. Sells well due to its ‘durable’ and ‘waterproof’ capacity but has failed and now makes the product just a normal speaker.

Day 1, put in bath, no issue, treble a bit muffled on taking out, a swift shake sorted that. Day 2, got knocked off side, 5 foot drop into concrete, not sure i can find where it impacted, no issues. Day 3, got the solar panel, nice, add’s about 1 or 2 dots a day, which if i take it fully charged is enough to cover calls for a week in the field. Day 4, ordered one for my brother after seeing his eyes when i showed him mine.

KitSound Mini Buddy and Portable Rechargeable Universal Wired Speaker – Perfect portable speaker

The sound quality is amazing.

Can’t believe that something so small can produce a sound so loud and good. Definitely recommend product,.

It is very cute and has good sound quality.

(introduction)the kit sound mini buddy speaker is a great fun speaker that comes in all different decorations i must say it is extremely tempting to buy all of them because they all look so good. I bought the reindeer which when you turn it on its nose glows red just likes rudolph’s. You can also choose whether to get bluetooth or wired. (setting up)to set up this wired speaker all u need to do is first turn it on then plug the audio jack into the headphone jack and then turn it up to your what volume you choose and there you’re set up to go.To connect the blue tooth version first turn it on then go into settings and go on bluetooth (make sure it’s turned on) next look for ‘bm6’ i think or anything like that. Then you can listen to your music. The setting up is quite easy so an 8/10. (the product design)the product design is fantastic, there’s a wide variety of animals, colours and different objects to choose from. Personally, i think it’s amazing of how many things there are to choose from and it seems that the company put a lot of effort into their product.It all looks fabulous and what’s good is that you can choose which one you want for personal preference.

Way better than i expected for the price.

Well his little nose lights up. What more can i write, the sound quality is pretty decent & they last a far good while.

  • Great product!
  • Box was a bit battered but arrived quickly and item works fine.
  • Perfect portable speaker

Bought as a present for my wife to use with her ipod nano 7th gen.

Brilliant and i love the shiny nose really makes me smile.

Bought as a present, really surprised at the sound quality for such a little thing. Box was a bit battered but arrived quickly and item works fine.

KitSound Mini Buddies

Adorable and portable, what the KS Mini Buddy speakers lack in size, they make up for in volume.

Less is more; Don’t judge a book by its cover; Good things come in small packages. There are many sayings you could use to describe the KS Mini Buddies, but for the sake of simplicity it is said that they’re loud.

  • Frequency response: 100 Hz -20 kHz
  • Driver size: 36 mm
  • S/N: 85 dB
  • Output: 2 W RMS at 4 ohms.

Big sound

On its own a Mini Buddy sounds right, but if you want even more volume, you can connect two or more of them together for increased impact. And with the Mini Buddies coming in a variety of cute designs, it’s an excuse to collect the whole family.

Ultra portable

Just because a Mini Buddy boasts big sound, it doesn’t mean the speaker itself has to be big. Measuring around 50 mm wide, 55 mm high and 48 mm across, they’re ultra-portable and even come with a key ring attachment, so you can hear your music out loud wherever you are.

Easy to use

Simple to use, you just plug it into your mobile, tablet, PC or music device using the 3.5 mm headphone jack and turn it on. Charging the built-in Li-ion battery can be done by simply plugging the supplied USB cable into a PC, laptop, USB mains charger or USB car charger.

KitSound Shot Rechargeable Universal Bluetooth Pocket-Sized Portable Speaker Compatible – Great little speaker.

Great sound quality for such a wee cube. I’m using it instead of headphones to listen to music on an ipod, and don’t need it to be blasting out loud in the house. Very simple to use and to charge.

Cant fault the sound and the battery last a good while. Although the rubber outside picks up alot of dust.

I was looking for a small speaker that i could carry round with me on the go so when i needed to play music i wouldn’t have to use my phones speaker. The price was what attracted me to this particular speaker as i know bluetooth speakers are normally quite expensive if you want a good quality sound. However this small little speaker has everything you need from a portable device. Its small, sturdy (not a mark on it from me dropping it numerous times) and can be connected to relatively quick and easily. The worry i always have with speakers is the battery life but i have managed to get a through near enough a days play with average useable so i have no complaints the speaker itself produces a decent sound for something of its size and even out performed some of my previous larger speakers, at times it does come across a bit tinny when it tries to play the higher ends but considering the sound quality you get out most small speakers i am very impressed. Overall i would not hesitate to recommend this little speaker and it fits perfectly into your pocket safe in the knowledge that its not going to be broken at the end of the day no matter what you throw at it. Here are the specifications for the KitSound Shot Rechargeable Universal Bluetooth Pocket-Sized Portable Speaker Compatible:

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • Connect wirelessly to any Bluetooth enabled device and other devices using the 3.5 mm port
  • Built-in microphone for complete call-handling capabilities
  • With the Shot’s tough, durable design it’s extremely portable and easy to take anywhere you would like
  • Up to 4 hours playtime so an afternoon on the beach listening to music is now a very real thing
  • What the shot lacks in size it definitely makes up for in sound

They say all good things come in small packages and with this teensy little speaker i’d agree. At just over an inch cubed this portable shot speaker is small enough to pop in you pocket or even attach it to your key ring. It turned up in a study plastic casing protecting the speaker and comes with a usb charging cable, a (tiny) instruction manual and a string attachment to hook on to your key rings. I was looking for a small speaker to take away with me on weekends away. I’ve tried other bluetooth speakers before but had problems with the connection and charge life. This speaker is easy to charge and it was easy to connect to my phone using the bluetooth setting. Just hold the button down on the bottom until it beeps and it should show on your bluetooth list, hit play and off you go. The sound quality was good and it goes very loud. At the higher volumes it can sound a little tinny but still holds its own with a good bass that was actually shaking the table at times.

This is a fantastic little speakernicely packaged all you need in a small cubespeaker, instructions, attachments took only a moment to pop open and was ready to start using my new purchase without the endless packaging fusswe are always playing music around the house and this has just enhanced the experience. Easy to set up a couple of clicks and i was connected within a few seconds. I was happily surprised with the sound quality although this speaker is only small it has a great sound perfect for indoors at dinner parties etc or out can definitely see us using it later in the year at the beachcharges quickly and seems to last for hours without any issuessmall and stylish easy to set in a middle of the table with friends without you evening noticing it’s therewould recommended to anyone if your looking for a small speaker at a reasonable price that’s packs a punch10/10 :).

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Great little speaker.
  • Small but mighty!
  • Big sound small speaker – ideal for on the go

Got 1 of these free from ee for returning a recalled phone charger. I’m amazed at the sound output, quality and ease of functionality of something you can slip into your pocket. While it obviously won’t replace quality home hifi it’s ideal for travel and garden use. Took it out the other night to show people in the pub and all were astounded when i demonstrated.
