It is very good, however, trying to sort out the volume seems to be a bit of a challenge. I can do it from the pc, but should be able to do it from the speaker. It seems you should be able to press minus or plus to raise or lower, which makes sense, but doesn’t really work well. And the instructions are really not great. They should be a lot clearer, and better explained, they aren’t. Very slick design and sound quality is very good, for the price.
Nice looking box which arrived earlier than estimated delivery date. I am a bit disappointed with the maximum volume. At its loudest its ok for a small room. Hence 4 star rating and not 5. 340 days on, and i’ve used it everyday. Someone recommended a better one supposedly louder. And it was 4 times the price. Yesterday my speaker got jammed.
My two year old piano black pure dab radio suddenly stopped working. I’m retired, and never watch television, so having no radio was a major big deal for me. My pure radio was expensive and i didn’t wish to pay that amount again for something that would die on me again. I’ve just put 100 favourite albums on my iphone so it seemed a good idea to get myself a bluetooth device where i could play my favourite music. After searching amazon i came across this little device, and the fact it had an in built fm tuner was great news for me, and at £26 it seemed to be too good to be true. I saw that there had been 800 plus feed back reports with a high star rating, so this settled it for me. Delivery wasn’t too speedy, but when the package arrived i was so so chuffed with it. The packing, and box with it in, was to brand new apple iphone standards. The box was so lovely i hadn’t the heart to throw it away so it now has a new home on the top of my wardrobe along with my digital camera and lens boxes.

I just purchased an amazon echo dot and this speaker (after looking on the website to see that it did, indeed, work with the echo) and having set up the echo dot successfully, low and behold i find that i cannot get the speaker to connect. I have paired it with my samsung phone and tablet and it works fine: excellent sound quality but i didn’t buy it just to run off my phone. No matter what i try with the dot and it’s associated android app it refuses to find the speaker, never mind pairing and connecting. To say that i’m a tad disappointed would be an understatement. Anyway three stars as it works very well on what i can connect to. I have contacted zenbre for their thoughts but if anyone can come up with a reason as to why i having this issue, i’d appreciate it. Update: i found that the speaker needs to be un-coupled from all devices before the dot recognises it. After that it sets up quickly, however it does not seem possible to then connect the speaker to a second echo device without in-pairing first from the dot – this is more an echo issue that the speakers i should think. So now i’ve had it a while i can say that the build quality is very good as is the sound quality. The speaker lasts for many hours on a single charge (though i haven’t played it for the 20+ hours it says it can do on a single charge in one go) but i am now, as i type, charging for only the second time in the week i’ve had it.
Speaker doesn’t vibrate or bounce around in use and the sound is reasonably well balanced. The bluetooth has worked well on every tablet and phone i’ve tried. Volume button is a bit over sensitive and jumps quickly up to high. Better to use the volume on your tablet or mobile to adjust the sound. Battery charges quickly and lasts well. Theres also no distortion as ot runs down. Its a weighty and nice feeling piece of kit. Generally i’d say it’s one of the better speakers i’ve ever bought.
Reviews from purchasers :

- When I found this speaker on Amazon at a fantastic price and read the specification I was slightly concerned
I do loved the speaker the sound quality is the best i have had from any bluetooth speaker. The only downside i have is that when turning the speaker down it sometimes goes on to the next track as you have to use the same button for both but that might be due to me not pressing it properly. But i would recommend this product as it is amazing for the price.
Very nice quality construction with premium packaging. They feel expensive, as they should. They look great (apart from the annoying blue flashing led). The only thing that lets these speakers down is the rather poor bass. Although most reviewers are saying the opposite, i find the bass levels rather disappointing and for some of my tracks it does sound rather tinny. I was in two minds whether to send them back or not, i’ll probably keep them but i wouldn’t buy another pair. 3 stars because they are ‘ok’ but nothing revolutionary.
Very neat self contained rechargeable battery powered bluetooth speaker, decent base, volume much better than the tiny speakers in your phone but i would use this for personal listening/small room rather than a party sound source, good value, cheers john.
Very impressed with this speaker the sound was great. Bought for a christmas present but tried out this aft to make sure all was ok. The quality and packaging looked far more expensive than it was. Will bear in mind for future gifts.
Excellent value for money, and surprisingly musical, balanced and clear (and loud) sound for such a diminutive unit, with a decent bass response. Obviously it doesn’t match up to bluetooth speakers from bose, sonox etc. (let alone proper wired hi-fi or monitor speakers) in terms of volume or quality but it’s a fraction of the price. And ok, it certainly wouldn’t cut it in a party situation, but for the bedroom/kitchen/bathroom use for which it is probably intended, fine. Bluetooth pairing with ipad/iphone was simple, and connection via auxiliary cable worked fine. I couldn’t get the fm radio receiver to auto-tune to any stations, but that’s probably due to the very poor reception where i live. To be honest, i don’t think anyone would buy a unit like this to use as a radio (apart from anything else, there is no display) and i’d suggest zenbre leave this function out and cut a £ or two off the price. Haven’t tried using the micro-sd function, but i’d imagine that’s also fairly redundant since the vast majority of users will rely on bluetooth.
It’s not the loudest, and the bass isn’t amazing, but it does the job. All i wanted was something to play my music around the house, in better quality than my phone, and for that purpose it’s perfect. It looks good, it’s compact and light, and very easy to use.
This i bought as a friend had a similar product. The sound quality is good, and i can listen to music or a downloaded programme as i move around. Good for when entertaining as it is so small.
Excellent little bit of kit. Bearing in mind it’s only 10w and pretty small it manages to fill a room with a decent sound, if a little lacking in bass (just turn on extra bass in spotify or whatever which helps here). But unless you’re into bose territory that’s to be expected considering the small form factor. No distortion even at full volume. Battery lasts ages, and can be used when on charge too (via micro usb). Pairs easily and has a built in fm radio which i’ve not used yet – just bluetooth so far. Comes with a little cloth carry bag which is nice and the speaker has a nice heft to it. Very pleased with it, especially for the price.
Excellent from prompt delivery to performance, took a little while to set up but this was my unfamiliarity with setting up proceedures. Sound is really good for such a compact unit.
I don’t know if this is a problem with the device or my pc but i can’t have the power cable plugged into my pc while it charges as it makes really weird high pitched sounds after several minutes. Also i only use it on my pc via aux and the device doesn’t remember what setting you have it on so everytime i turn the device on i have to cycle from bluetooth to radio and then aux.
Was initially very pleased for the price of the speaker (5/5 stars). However after only a couple weeks of using it it will occasionally freeze and not be able to turn off. The reset button seems to serve the purpose of what i can only imagine is decoration. Having looked at online reviews, a few other customers share this issue. Also a few other couple annoying things like pairing with laptop is a struggle every time, and the ‘touch sensitive’ button pad is a horrific experience. Deserves 3/5 though since it does what is supposed to do (most of the time), which is play wireless music for an effective period of time before recharge. Not sure where how they got an initial rrp of £99. Will grant 5/5 if i can get feedback on how to effectively deal with this problem, or if mine is simply a faulty product (in which i’d like an exchange).
Great looking solid speaker, powerful sound, easy to connect with bluetooth. Volume buttons could have been better placed, they double up as forward and back buttons which is irritating when you keep switching tracks/videos by mistake. It comes with a nice velvet cover and fits neatly into my laptop bag. Connected to both my laptop and phone for mindfulness exercise and music for my last workshop and worked really well in the medium-sized room.
This is my first bluetooth speaker. I purchased this one because it seemed reasonably priced and had good enough reviews. Certainly presents as a quality item. Expertly packaged and robust make up. I wanted to be able to connect to the various playlists on my amazon music app which are on my laptop. I don’t tend to access music on my phone but my family does. Once confirming that i did have bluetooth on my laptop (thought i didn’t for a while) it was easy enough to set up. The sound was much better than i thought it would be and was clear and pretty loud. Only nuisance factor is not being able to connect to multiple devices at same time.
Provided a nice clean sound as background music during a recent camping trip. The bass was enough to please the dance folk, and the overall tones enough to enjoy the guitar mastery of led zeppelin. The battery life was adequate for the night, we had it on for approximately 6 hours at 50% and it was still going in the morning for another 3 before we packed up, never actually went flat. The radio is a nice touch, managed to pick up bbc radio 1 and cfm (cumbria fm) clearly enough, just remember to plug the aux cable in as an antenna. Bluetooth range is adequate, i would say a good 10 meters before drop outs occur. I never actually used the memory card function, so i have just put a 64gb card in full of mp3’s and it does what it states, playback is no problem. Overall, it’s not going to fuel a large outdoor party, but for a small group sat in a field, or a get together at home it is brilliant, well worth the small price.
I bought this device after filtering through amazon ratings and then reading the reviews. Device is compact but solid with a good weight and does not slide about on my glass desktop. After fixing bluetooth issues on my laptop i was able to quickly pair the z3 with ease. The unit has a good sound although will distort at max volume, not sure if this is the mechanics of the speakers or the bluetooth or source quality?.Anyway, at the volume needed for my small office this does not present an issue. Battery life is very good although i tend to leave plugged into usb supply most of the time. Device looks good with the rest of my black gloss equipment. Would recommend this device to others.
Hello, i’ve just purchased this zenbre soundbank z3. What follows is a review on what’s been learnt which i also hope will answer issues some customers have had with this speaker and be useful in informing others. Thanks for taking the time to read it. The z3 speaker arrives quickly and is packaged securely and firmly. For interest, the pictures i’ve uploaded show the specifications and features. Additionally, they show a couple of errors that i’ll go on to clarify. The z3 is constructed well and feels of a good weight with a strong sturdy compact design build. It ships ready to use with a partial charge. It has dual speaker drivers of 40mm front facing at 2 x 5w with a frequency range of 180 hz – 20khz.
