Monster High Definition Bluetooth Speaker – Grey : Packing a punch for a party from the pocket

Love this, great sound, compact and easy to use. If i can’t find it my teenager will have ‘borrowed’ it for their room or the shower. Handy for parties and i use it for our 5th wheel caravan when away.

Saw this in a well know london store on sunday and looked it up on amazon while having a drink in the store. (3pm) found this for £30 cheaper and ordereed it. It arrive day the next day at 7pm. Unpacked and working in minutes, love it. Great sound and with the extra bass settings on my mini ipda sounds great.

I’ve already bought 3 different brands of this type of item and this is the best one i’ve ever had i would recommend it to anybody it is absolutely fantastic and very lights thank you.

Best travel speaker i have owned. Great value and easy to use. The charge lasts days and its sound it amazing for its size. Buy it if you plan on going away and love to boom out tunes.

Very pleased with my purchase exelent product and very vast delivery.

Great sound from small speaker, reviewed lots of others before deciding on this speaker. So glad i did, it’s a wonderful speaker.

This speaker is a very convenient and handy size. It is well constructed and solid feeling. The sound quality is very good.

I ordered this after trying my daughters, nice bit of kit at a great price unfortunately the unit was faulty and the supplier had no replacement.

This is a really great little product. It comes in really nice packaging, and complete with charging cables and a carrying pouch. Once charged (which takes only about 20 minutes at first) it is easy to pair – no codes required, and the sound is amazing for such a small and neat speaker. Perhaps not the greatest hi-fi as at high volume (and the volume does go really high) just a tiny bit tinny, but overall a really nice speaker, beautifully designed, well packaged, and a perfect size and shape for easy transportation. It will come on all our holidays and travels from now on. Maybe just a bit expensive at £99 – but it looks as if the price is beginning to drop.

Tiny speaker massive sound – slip in the hand luggage for your holiday, boom dancing to your fave tuuunnnes whilst glamming up for your euro disco night out.

The best portable bluetooth speaker i have bought to date when you factor in the size, the weight and the sound. Nice and slim to take on your travels. The sound is amazing for the size, i don’t understand what the critical reviewers expect from such a small speaker. I think it’s the best pound for pound speaker on the market.

Best portable speakers i’ve owned, bluetooth is excellent as well as the volume and battery life (4/5 hours max volume).

It looks cool and is quite a talking point as i believe it’s fairly new to the uk. It feels good to touch and can be stood vertically, horizontally or flat. I particularly like that it pairs easily with my laptop and phone, and fits into my pocket. It also pairs with smartphones and can be useful at work – better than the speaker feature. The whole room can speak and listen. The built in mic has advanced noise cancellation which is good for wireless hands-free calling and conferencing. There is the occasional distortion at full volume, but this tends to be from poor quality originated youtube clips. Pros:the monster superstar has an unusual, compact, slim design, making it travel-friendly. It can be stood in various modes. It plays loud for its size, has a built-in speakerphone, and is splash-resistant. If you don’t have bluetooth devices there’s a 3. Cons:can distort at higher volumes, particularly with bass-heavy material and inferior recordings.

A great clear sound with a good bass tone. It’s such a convenient portable size.

Liked it so much i bought 2.

KitSound Ignite Mini Universal Portable Wireless Bluetooth Speaker Compatible : Sound great. I will buy another so before they run

Great value for money and easy to use also pretty good sound quality for a tiny speaker.

I was recommended a kitsound ignite mini by a friend who couldn’t stop talking about how good her new speaker was. Slightly, dubious about buying a product i hadn’t heard of before, i gave it the benefit of the doubt and trusted my friend’s enthusiasm. When i received it i was impressed with how sleek it looked and it’s smooth finish, however i didn’t think it was worth the build up my friend had given. I had used portable speakers in the past and generally had the impression they were a good idea but didn’t produce much. They were fiddley and a pain to connect and i usually gave up and put some headphones on or turned on the radio. To my delight the ignite was fuss free and connected to my iphone 4s within seconds. It was also easy to switch between devices which was helpful when my partner was fed up of ellie goulding on repeat. I was impressed with how loud the little speaker could go, although pushing it to the max decreased the sound quality a little, if you really wanted it that loud using the aux lead solved the problem. The ignite was easy to use and could be controlled by the buttons on the speaker or using a personal device (iphone) this was a helpful feature when wanting to message or use other apps whilst listening to music.

KitSound Ignite Mini Universal Portable Wireless Bluetooth Speaker Compatible with iPhone, iPad, iPod, Samsung, Android, Tablets and MP3 Devices – Black

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • High stereo sound
  • Passive radiator for high bass
  • Connect wirelessly or with the including charge and aux cables
  • Play your MP3 files from a micro SD card
  • Hands-free call-handling capabilities

I bought one of these on a deal through tesco, whereby it only cost £35 of clubcard vouchers. I bought it to take on holiday / in the park / in the garden, and it seems to be the right thing for the job. Although i wasn’t fussed about appearance as it is likely to get chucked about a bit, it looks very smart and would blend in with a polished living room. Sound is surprisingly good for the price; physics will tell you that a little loudspeaker this size won’t put out room-filling sound, but in spite of this it does sound full and the bass can largely keep up at low to moderate volumes. As you push it to higher volumes, the bass wipes out a bit of the midrange so it sounds slightly more tinny. Only negative thing is the very loud ‘bloop’ when you switch it on, makes it impractical to turn on late at night or early in the morning if people are still asleep.

Perhaps a little bit small at first but great sound from such a little box. Connectivity is hassle free.

Stands on my bedside table and plays via bluetooth from my htc one. Gives a good sound and looks good and solid.

KitSound Ignite Mini Universal Portable Wireless Bluetooth Speaker Compatible with iPhone, iPad, iPod, Samsung, Android, Tablets and MP3 Devices – Black : Was brilliant at first, still works fine but the bluetooth function and controls stopped working after a few months. Luckily the volume can be adjusted through device plugged into it.

I bought this speaker during the black friday sale so bear that in mind. I really like the sound that it enhances. I connect it with my tablet and my smartphones at all times. It is way better than other products that i tested for the same price. Everything is very responsive and intuitive with this speaker. I hate to give it 4 stars, but the problem that i encountered is that it is very hard to connect to a normal laptop and i don’t understand why.

Great product for the money, very surprised.

Only downside is it needs charging through usb which can be a bit annoying.

I’d been looking for a speaker to use with my iphone 4, so the fact that it has both bluetooth and comes with an aux cable was ideal. I wanted something small as the main use i had in mind for it was days at the beach or to use in my car (which sadly doesn’t have a stereo. ) but i was so genuinely surprised by the high quality of sound that such a small device could provide, that i generally opt to use it at home and take it from room to room rather than messing around with sound systems. Its small size means that it is truly portable unlike some speakers that you’d need a backpack for alone. I love that it comes with a built in radio-which i didn’t actually discover until after i had bought it- such a bonus. The fact that one button controls all of its functions, with others to fast-forward/rewind and control volume, means that it’s super easy to use. I was also pretty impressed to find that it was compatible to use with my spotify account on my phone, i’m so used to having to go into the app to control it. It’s simple but effect packaging, without an excess of materials, is a plus for the environment which is always good thing for me.

I already have a kitsound mini cube speaker, which is a lot smaller than the ignite. But i must say that it kicks it’s ass. The ignite is ok, but i am a little disappointed. The cube sounds better due to the rubber base and the lower frequency output.

I have them in stereo and was so easy to configure. I have not used it for answering phone calls yet but everything i have tested works well. Battery life is good at present.

Great sound from this little boom box. Its for my kitchen and to take into my garden as well, really impressed for the moneyi’ve already recommended it to friends.

Back in 1986, mike ‘d’ diamond, adam ‘mca’ yauch and adam ‘ad-rock’ horovitz of the beastie boys told us to fight for the right to party. So, not purely to have a review title that rhymes this is truly achievable with the kitsound ignite. I recently purchased this portable speaker after my long-term relationship with my logitech docking station came to a sudden (and very sad) halt. I decided to ditch the dock and chose the ignite as i have a classic ipod with a 30-pin connector and an iphone 5 with lightning adapter so wanted something that would play music stored on both devices. Now, for my first impression: as many of you may have experienced, when buying clothes or techy devices online, you cannot easily judge size; so my first impression of the ignite was actually one of disappointment. I received the package and to my dismay, it was tiny. Thinking this was going to replace my now ex-logitech dock i couldn’t quite imagine that this was going to deliver. Good things really do come in small packages and i can safely say that this has not only replaced my logitech docking station in my heart. But has also left plenty more room on my shelfthe speaker itself is compact, matte black and finished with a retro front grill, complemented by the smart ks logo.

I like this kitsound ignite wireless speaker because it easily connected to my laptop via bluetooth and played music right away from my laptop. However, i do not seem to be able to get any bass sound from it which is quite disappointing. The sound seems like it is being played from inside another box or from behind a thick wall because it’s not the true sound of the music that is playing. I have another smaller bluetooth speaker which has provides a lot more bass and a deeper sound which was cheaper than the kitsound product but gives me a better sound in my opinion. I have been busy over the christmas period so i have not had time to experiment much with it to find out why there is very little bass sound from it. I will also email the suppliers to see if there are any tweaks that i can do to improve the sound in any way. There is also supposed to be a 10 metre range for this speaker but if i moved the speaker about 10 feet away the sound broke up and i found that i had to move the speaker to within 6 feet for it to play the music correctly. I am using a lenovo laptop which is fairly high spec and therefore i expect the two to work well together. I do like the look and feel of the kitsound speaker and it feels solid and well built and if the bass had been better i would have given the product five stars. I do hope i can get the bass sorted or i will be reluctant to use the speaker again and i will be disappointed and may consider returning the product to either amazon or kitsound because it’s not fit for use etc.

When i looked at the image i imagined it to be big – but its just bigger than your palm but plays incredibly great. The best thing about it is it doesnt need to be connected to main always. The battery longs for at least 6 hrs i think. Buy this if you need one just down next your bed and want to play anything from mobile or laptop using bluetooth (or line in if you want).

Best sounding speaker i have bought crisp sound with good bass for the size of it it’s great. Brought it on holiday and glad i did easy to pair aswell. I have this speaker two years now and i can hand on heart day it is waterproof to my amazement i found it buried in my shed in a bucket of water i nearly cried i presumed it was the end for little kit. But 2 days in the hotpress and it is working 100% no crackiling everything works no distortion. Great speaker for working in the garden and shed. Its waterproof for gods sake and it doesn’t say that on the box lol.

This was the third different speaker i bought of kitsound and love them allfor something that sits in your hand, incredible clarity and. Solid bass without being over the top and booming.

Just bought today, what a fantastic piece of kit. Can’t believe what output you get. Light, compact, and fills the room with sound.

This is the third kitsound product that i have bought. Yet again, i am staggered by the quality of the sound from something so small. These guys are real craftsmen.

Easy connection and sounds great. Tried it at work when were out in the sticks with bad radio reception and blasted metallica across the countrysideexcellent battery life too.

I will buy another so before they run out.

Panasonic SC-ALL05EB-W Powerful Multi Room Portable and Waterproof Speaker, this item is great

This device has really grown on me to the point that i recommend it. I tend to use it for 2 key purposes:1) as a ‘put it anywhere’ (within wi-fi range) radio. It gives great quality radio without having to mess about with an aerial. It does take up to a minute to fire up from ‘off’ and sometimes i have to change radio channels back and forth to finally get the one i want to work?.The allplay radio app is a bit flakey, but you only need it to set up the 6 pre-sets (which i’ve not changed since setting them). 2) as an extra speaker for my panasonic hc-1020 which is compact but lacks a bit of oomph. Together this gives good stereo music quality for a small footprint. The panasonic app is nothing special but does everything i need. Had a few issues getting both devices onto the wi-fi network – not sure it would be so great on a 2. 4ghz only network (i had to force it onto 5ghz to get it to stream from my nas).

Although i didn’t make my final purchase on amazon (wouldn’t arrive on time for xmas), i thought i’d leave a review since there’s none for the all05 model. Overall found this to be a brilliant speaker and exactly what we wanted it for. Works great directly from spotify and really good quality. Chose this over the sonos play 1 as it had touch buttons for the radio. Once the radio is set up the touch buttons are very useful and definitely worth it. It always seems to stay connected and reconnects after switching off. No problems at all yet but will update if there are. Setup – really easy, plugged in, downloaded the app and started playing. Just pressed the wps button on the router so there was no issue getting connected. Sound – i’m no expert so i can’t talk technically but it plays music and it sounds great.

Well built & they sound great. The battery life however is woeful. They discharge on standby within 8 hours. As for playtime you will be lucky to get 4 hours of musc. There are better value units out there. If you want portability then look else where.

Comments from buyers

“SUPER SOUNDING 🔈🔉🔊
, Great value
, Great little speaker

I like this a lot the way i use it, which nowadays is just as a bluetooth speaker. After having had it a year, i still use it regularly. It has good, clear, loud sound. Bluetooth connectivity is reliable, and the fact it is waterproof is a nice addition. I like the touchscreen buttons on the top, which are smooth and neat. You can’t really use it with wet hands though- the touchscreen doesn’t respond properly. However i haven’t much used it for its internet-connected functions. If you want to use it as the hub for an interconnected set of smart speakers, it’s probably great. But if you aren’t into that, it is much less impressive.

It’s the second one i’ve bought. Great sound for a little speaker. Can feel bit expensive but they really do sound great. I guess it depends if you want great sound or cheap sound. You can use spotify deezer or because of the bluetooth feature if you are an amazon prime customer you can stream from amazon music also. Would recommend great value.

I already have this speaker in black purchased this white one for bathroom to complete multi room set up. These speakers are great if you have the panasonic all system, i daresay that there are better performing speakers if you want to lump out great sums of money, but these sound and work seamlessly together, being able to change them to left and right channel stereo channels is easy via panasonic app. When used in the same room as panasonic sc-hc1020 the room filling crystal clear sound is amazing. When used as a stand alone speaker it is very capable of filling room with rich sound. My only negative comment about the all05 speaker would be that when you use this speaker as portable on battery power alone you will lose power output from 20 watts (10 per channel) down to 8 watts (4 per channel)overall would recommend this product due to its versatility.

The labyrinthine panasonic app/wifi set-up instructions are not especially user-friendlyto a technophobe like myself but mrs wolf lent a hand and things went swimmingly,although to be honest pairing my mac airbook and spotify premium by bluetooth isreally the only way i’ll be using it. It has a 10m bluetooth range and placing the devicein the kitchen and the mac in the lounge (about 5m away) achieved a good connection. The bass response is earthy and stereo separation adequate. (we have a bose soundlink mini ii in the boudoir whose sound quality is considerably better). The ‘waterproof’ claim will doubtless be useful to those who might use it in the bathroom. The build seems pretty solid and makes it less likely that tigs the curious cat will tip it over. Overall a decent product but i’m not quite as excited about it as i had hoped to be.

Heavier than i thought it would be, but it is not a a big issue. I am not brilliant with new technology, so had a a whizz of a family member to help me set this up. Having said that, seeing how simple it was, i could have done it myself. Connected via bluetooth and it is ready to use. Sound quality is good and good capacity too, with up to 9 hours playback time. Useful to have rechargeable battery facilities too. I was particularly attracted to it as it is waterproof and this will be mainly for bathroom us – makes having a bath very indulgent.

This item is great as it has a radio and can be come wireless so you can use it in the garden.

The panasonic sc-all05eb-k is a bluetooth waterproof speaker that packs a lot of punch. First of all the sound quality is incredible no matter what was played. Unfortunately i couldn’t just play sound from my podcast app directly, it was required that i select it via the companion app; this also prevents it from being used for phone calls and adds an unnecessary process i feel that users will dislike. When i played music i enabled the ‘voice’ button on top of the device, this brought vocals forward and dropped surrounding instruments, i feel that this feature would be incredibly useful when listening to sport commentary. I successfully tested the bluetooth and decided to connect my device to my home network (initially created using my home pc). When i firsted tested this feature i was able to stream music from my home network, but once i attempted to connect a second time the device was unable to connect at all. It was frustrating that i was unable to connect to my network but worse that the speaker doesn’t include an aux or usb connection. The app can be difficult to use at first but does help users with useful tips which do come in handy when using this speaker. I previously read a review which stated that the user was unable to download the companion app using their kindle “despite being an android app”, but kindle doesn’t run android; certainly not a reason to degrade this product. Overall i feel that the panasonic sc-all05eb-k is an incredible sounding device but unfortunately falls due to it’s lack of user experience.

More and more frequently i find myself using my phone for listening to music and ignoring purpose built fruit-themed devices that i have purchased for playing music. Usually this is done with the use of headphones, but sometimes i want to share what i am listening to with others and often this means relying on the speaker built into my phone which sadly is not the best way to experience music. A small, portable but powerful speaker is what i wanted and this is exactly what i gotbluetooth connection is easy and seems reliable. I’ve not had any problems with my phone connecting but i’ve yet to try other devices (e. My laptop or pc) so i can’t tell you that it will work perfectly for you. But being able to listen to whatever music service i want is brilliant. The speaker is rechargeable and the battery seems to last a decent time. It’s probably a touch heavier than i would like, but that’s something i am willing to compromise on for the quality of the sound. It’s apparently waterproof although i have yet to test this myself. But it gives me the confidence to take it out in the british summer without having to panic if we get a sudden downpour.

Really pleased with this speaker, sounds great and the wireless option is very convenient. Also if you have other compatible panasonic speakers the link up is really good. Instructions for setting up could be clearer for those of us who aren’t very ‘techie’ but the panasonic customer services were very helpful. One thing to be aware of is that whether switched on or off the battery is in use as it’s connected to the network (apparently), so you must keep it on charge when not using the battery as it will be drained when you come to use it as i found out the hard way.

This functions as our speaker for the kitchen – and is much liked by my wife (who uses it mostly for the radio) and my children (who use it mostly for bluetoothing their devices to for music when they are cooking). It gives out pretty good sound – both in volume and quality. It seems sufficiently well made too, which is great given that it is meant to be portable. Although for us it stays mostly plugged in, but i like the fact that it is rechargeable and we can take it outside, where the odd drop of rain won’t harm it – due to its waterproof design. The radio function is great, and the app allows you to pull internet radio stations from all over the world. Yet we tend to keep with the 6 presets that i’ve programmed. So what are the negatives?- it frustrated the life out of me setting it up. – it requires you to use its own app for playing music to it other than by bluetooth. I had been hoping to use it over the network. – the apps are clunky to use.

Ultimate Ears Blast Bluetooth Speaker – Sound Quality is Insane and the Bass is much better than the UE Boom 2

Sound is fantastic, alexa so easy, use app on phone too.

If you like alexa you will love this speaker. I got already alexa at home but the fact that this speaker has alexa built in is just amazing, you can now bring alexa on holidays with you without limits considering that the speaker is powered by battery and also waterproof. You will never need your phone again to play music cause the speaker will connect straight to the wifi and play the music from your favorite music provider such as spotify. (no more music interruption if somebody call you on your phone while music is playing). I’ve also notice since i’ve purchased the device that they integrated new funcions in the system such as spotify music and they also fixed some small bugs, this means that they are always improving the software. Really like this speakerno blast no party.

Good value for money and connectivity is great. I’ve bought four of these and they are easy to use. Here are the specifications for the Ultimate Ears Blast Bluetooth Speaker:

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • Ultimate Sound: Ultimate Ears most powerful speaker with 360 degrees intensely rich sound, elegant clarity and heart-pounding bass; with up to 12 hours of battery, it brings your music to life wherever you take it. Frequency Range: 60Hz – 20kHz
  • With Amazon Alexa hands-free voice control: Just ask Alexa to blast tunes from Amazon music*, Spotify or* TuneIn, change tracks, check the weather or try any of Alexa’s skills
  • Wi-Fi and Bluetooth enabled: Use the Alexa voice service at home or on the go whenever connected to Wi-Fi or a mobile hotspot or stream music via Bluetooth from your phone
  • Waterproof and virtually indestructible: Never worry about going easy on it, your music will always be on point; the speaker is IP67 rated and can be immersed in water up to 1 m for 30 minutes
  • Update your speaker with the Ultimate Ears app as new features become available

I like the sound quality and the fact it fills a room. I purchased this for being a good quality bluetooth speaker with added amazon alexa and on that basis its great. It can connect to the amazon tv thingy and easily connects to my mobile phone (i have downloaded the devices app think that helps a lot). The only negative for me is its in the kitchen and sometimes it seems to have difficulty reaching the house wifi signal where our mobile phones or other devices have no problem in the same spot. However i know where to position it so this is not an issue, but it might be for some. My annoyance with amazon is that its alexa software should connect to a spotify free account and not just a paid account. However alexa does connect to tunein radio which is great.

Ue booms are far superior to any other speaker i have had, the quality is out of this world puts dr dre to shame and the more expensive boos and the likes.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Sounds great – Wifi and/or Alexa isn’t
  • Love it. Great size and sound quality is good
  • Exceptionally good speaker!

My nephew took one of these speakers (without alexa) on holiday with us – and we were all blown away with the sound around the pool. I bought this one with alexa to use in the bathroom so i could skip through songs and change playlists without having to touch it while showering or in bath. When it connects with wifi, so i’m guessing anything you ask alexa to do – it constantly drops playback – sometimes it will resume – almost as though it is buffering. Sometimes it wont – it just stops like it forget what it was doing. This is the same with spotify, or tunein radio stations. The help says move your router – isolate it from electrical interference – but i must have 20 things in this house using the wifi – and this is the only thing that has connection problems. Anyway using through bluetooth seems to be fine – and it was less than £100 in the sale – so i am keeping it – hopefully ue will do something with firmware or software and sort it out.

Great speaker lovely deep bass sound guality great , i’ve been using it in the garden for several weeks. I love it alexa players all the music i want. I wanted a rugged speaker as we have two large dog ,chances of it being knocked over are high ,plus we have a lot of water in the garden with 2 ponds and a large paddling pool for the dogs to play in. So loving the fact it’s waterproof.

I am rating this four stars because of sound quality. The size and weight are what i expected. The volume can go up really high. The quality and depth of sound is adequate and it’ll be fine for the holidays we have this year, in a cottage, on the beach, etc. But it’s far from hi fidelity. The alexa support is actually quite good and did what i expected (i also have echo products) so i’m not sure what other reviewers expected. Lovely product design and easy to use, hold, carry around, and charge.

I own other ue products and brought this to enable me to take alexa around the house and garden. I can listen to music and audiobooks, in the bathroom, in the garage and out in the garden. I have had not had any reliability issues. Sound is very good for the price and has a slightly different balance to an echo, which some may prefer. Overall a well thought out and good value product that should give years of service. Just look out for a good deal and buy with confidence.

The sound quality from such small package is very impressive all my music sounds brilliant & its so handy to be able to use it in the garden in the nice weather highly recommended.

I bought this speaker to take on the road with me as i work away from home the majority of the time. The sound quality is excellent whether listening to an audio book or some power metal and the waterproofing appears to be flawless. I’ve not used the alexa integration much as it’s not compatible with captive hotel wi-fi portals but when i have used it, it has been adequate if a little unresponsive unless i issue commands from very close. The biggest gripe i have with this speaker is the battery longevity. At first, the battery life was excellent and i only needed to charge it every couple of weeks with occasional use (mostly i just used it for 30-45 minutes in the morning to listen to a bbc iplayer episode or similar). I’ve owned it for about a year now and the battery life has fallen to less than an hour (and it won’t work at all while the battery is low even if it’s plugged in. I also bought the ‘power up’ dock about 3 months ago and found that it’s extremely unreliable and will often stop charging the speaker unexpectedly which really doesn’t help.

Very nice and neat, love the fact i don’t need my phone around the house to play music any more. Although wish it had a sim car to use data when i was out and about but never mind. Excellant speaker for only £99.

The main concern people have with this speaker is the ultimate ears app, which is not very good. However you only need to use the app for initial setup, which i found to be quick and straightforward. After that you can control the alexa functions using amazon’s alexa app. This allows you to learn about new skills, change your preferences, and so on. I use amazon prime music, so found it easy to play stuff from my library. Once the speaker is set up, alexa works very well on this. I find the microphone picks up male voices better than female, and you have to yell a bit if you want it to hear you while it is playing music. But as it learns your voice, it gets better. It responds to commands quite quickly, and i have had no problems with the software, or the wifi connectivity. The speaker itself is excellent- which is just as well considering the price.

Whilst the sound and volume are really good, it constantly disconnects from bluetooth and no matter what ive tried to do, i cant get it to keep a sustained connection.

Superb quality, but slightly smaller than i expected. The speaker when turned up loud was very loud in comparison to the size. Great speaker for the price, but would recommend buying the charging dock if using it often at home. If you want something smaller and less expensive than the megaboom then i would recommend it, but much smaller than what the images show above.

This is perhaps one of the best portable speakers i’ve used in terms of build quality, connectivity and sound quality (for its size). It features lots of connectivity options including bluetooth and wi-fi. The built-in amazon alexa works very well, although it’s very slightly slower at responding compared to amazon’s own alexa speakers – this is the speaker that actually introduced me to the amazing world of alexa and the sole reason i now have 1 echo spot and 3 echo dots. I initially disregarded voice control as a gimmick but didn’t realise how useful it would especially for home automation such as controlling lights with lightwave rf and controlling the heating with tado. Sound quality is excellent for the size of the speaker. It’s crisp and clear with a decent amount of bass (just don’t expect it to shake anything). It can go extremely loud without any distortion, outperforming every speaker i’ve tried (of a similar size). This isn’t the most lightweight speaker you’ll find but the build quality is exceptional and seems like it will withstand heavy abuse. It’s also completely waterproof so it’s perfect for using in the shower, bath, hot tub or pool. Battery life is very good at 12 hours – long enough to not have to worry about charging it.

Absolutely amazing sound for the price so loud it’s act unbelievable that much noise could come out of a small speaker not so great on the alexa bit but i didn’t buy it for that and it works ok for me great piece of kit aaaaaaaaa+.

I prefer the wonderboom – this one cuts out a lot.

I am familiar with the boom 2 already and i would say this is a refined version with the added benefit of alexa voice control.

I ordered the ue blast last night on amazon prime as an impulse purchase as i already own 2 of the ue boom2. It wasn’t until after completing the order that i looked at the reviews which seemed to highlight a number of issues mainly around using the alexa function. The blast arrived by lunchtime the next day which i still think is great considering the order was placed the previous evening which was a bank holiday monday. Before trying out the speaker i connected it to my phone via bluetooth, downloaded the app (different to the app for ue boom) then connected it to my internet and immediately updated the firmware. Once this was completed i linked the device to my amazon account and so far no issues whatsoever. The blast plays my amazon music just by using the alexa wake word and works for the smart plugs i have in the house. All the voice commands have been picked up and actioned so far. I will need to look into changing the wake word for my echo devices though so i can use this speaker throughout the house without activating them when i want to use the speaker (would be nice if i could change the wake word on the ue instead)my only complaint so far is that you cannot link the boom 2 to the blast, as stated previously i own 2 of the booms and would really like to have been able to connect them all. I am happy to be corrected but i see this as being a deliberate firmware lock down rather than restrictions on the hardware. This is the only reason why i would give 4 rather than 5 stars.

Just ask for a selection from an artist or era and it plays as well as repeating your favourites. It goes around the house with me and we now have a carrier so we can take it on holiday with us.

TYGUIDER Mini Bluetooth 4 : Sounds good

Surprisingly solid and well made, with pretty good sound quality for the price. Good life from recharge (via usb) to recharge. Useful add-on for bluetooth streaming music from your mobile phone. Volume is controlled by your phone, but long-press the ff button on the base to step up to boosted volume.

Good sound only minor problem was distinguishing what base button was what in dim light, solved with ballpoint pen mark on lighter colour surface. Good all round for the money.

 excellent metal speaker with rich sound. Obviously feel the crisp sound with strong bass even stereo around while listening music or watch film via bluetooth. So happy and impressive for its small size and long battery lifetime.

The product is great for the price. A nice cheap and easy to use the speaker,quite loud and nice bit of bass too.

  • Really good rechargeable speaker.
  • controls under the unit
  • Great value, nicely made.

I’m so surprised for this speaker,it’s really good product,the voice is clear no noise ,and easy to take it to everywhere,i’ll recommend this speaker to my friend.

 these two speakers would put some sound bars to shame. The speakers have great build quality. Easy to use function buttons. I particularly like the rubber seal at the bottom, it keeps the speaker securely in one place. The speaker pairs up really fast. When i first used the speaker i was shocked at how good it sounds for the price. I love the function where you hold the ff button for a few seconds and it kicks in extra base. Even when i received a call i could hear the other person clearly and they could hear me clearly too. It’s so easy to pair up a second speaker, all you do is turn it on and it automatically pairs with speaker number 1, then you’re in for a treat. For the size they light up the room.

Controls are under the unit and not too clearly marked, which means that you have to keep picking up the unit to use them, had they have been on the side i would have given this item top marks on all features because it has the best sound that i have heard on such a small unit.

Amazing, super little speaker really pleased with it. Great value for money would definitely recommend it.

This is fine apart from it’s sooooo quiet. The sound quality is good but it has no volume control. I play music from my phone and on full volume it’s not very loud at all, especially outside or in a large room.

Surprisingly good, considering the price. I got fed up with my poor chromebook at work, constantly giving up on me, especially on the sound. So instead of requesting it form service desk and get approval etc. , i skipped the hassle and got one from amazon. Works well, and used in meetings and workshops.

Is too pleasantly surprised, the real is good and cheap, the sound is clear and bright, the color is same as the picture, no color difference, the function is complete very convenientdo manual work is very delicate and cabinet, bluetooth connection with a computer sound, listen to music to the largest volume sound hissing sound, sound quality is very good, has the high and low, is what i want effect, good and inexpensive, is a perfect shopping at a time,.

I have never thought that i can buy such amazing speaker in this price, which has impressive sound expression, clear sound field, it is double for its price.

This little bluetooth speaker really surprised me. To be honest , before i order this i wasn’t expect the sound quality is gonna be good for this price , but i have been use this speaker for more then 10 days now , really happy with it.

I just love my little speaker. Fits in my handbag and i take it everywhere. I took so long for me to test the potential of this powerfull little boombox. Easy to play all kinds music audio without any noise even the max volume via bluetooth. The cd sound qualiy is good enough for a gathering of friends enjoying a night in with a bottle of wine. It’s not the top of the range so don’t expect the base to shake shake shake the room but it does a good job. Crisp sound for such a compact unit.

I couldn’t be more delighted with this speaker. It is very sturdily built and the sound quality is perfect for my needs. I found it easy to pair with my iphone and ipad. I like the non slip base as it is almost impossible to accidently knock it over. Incredibly inexpensive for the quality of the product.

Smart and mini bass ,easy to use and easy to take. Main thing is good sound quality,i like it.

So nice product,it’s a nice mini bluetooth speaker,and give me a superise. It’s easy to use ,and connect easily,quickly to my phone and ipad. Recharge battery can work long time,about one week.

Saw and heard this speaker at a friend’s house. How can that sound come out of such a small device?.

Lovely excellent little speaker. Amazing the vocals are clear sound is powerful and smooth very comfortable. Good quality highly recommended.

Ok sound to be small, but nothing more than expected.

Fantastic speaker,the little bluetooth speaker gives me a big surprise for its crisp&stereo sound with powerful bass. It also delivers bigger sound and full fills my house from such a tiny body, easy to connect my iphone via bluetooth.   amazing sound with bargain price,it is should be the no. 1 between 5w and 6w speakers in amazon markets. Be well worth buying one or more.

. Only tried to play them both in sync once and worked ok.

ZENBRE Z3 10W Portable Wireless Bluetooth Speakers – Aux socket reset switch

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. Here are the specifications for the ZENBRE Z3 10W Portable Wireless Bluetooth Speakers:

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 :

  • Aux socket reset switch
  • A Mini Powerhouse Bluetooth Bargain
  • 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.

Samsung Wireless Multiroom Speaker 360 Omnidirectional in WAM1500 R1, Great product and great sound

Great little speaker for the gym.

Good as a phone speaker, bad as a 5. 1 satellite speaker for use with your tv. Please note that this is not a terrible product. . But its just not good as a surround satellite speaker. Contrary to what samsung want you to believe, yes it does work as a satellite speaker for a 5. 1 system with their hw-k651 soundbar system. But no, it is not very effective. Because it is intended as a ‘360 degree’ sound device, it does not have the direction-ality of a dedicated surround sound satellite speaker. Even with the volume boosted on both the tv soundconnect and on the speakers themselves, they are a very poor substitute for a dedicated 5. 1 speaker system for use with your tv, avoid the ‘soundbar + 2 r1s’ system and instead get yourself a dedicated avr unit with some decent speakers. If you shop around the price can be around the same anyways. This is a good speaker though for connecting with your phone for music playback though. I’ve used it at a few social gatherings and it did its job fine.

Brilliant sound easy set up, i have ipad so thought may be difficult, glad samsung made it capatible with apple i was playing top quality sound via wifi within 15 minutes of arrival. Great service by amazon as usual. No complaints on product or service.

Comments from buyers

“Samsung R1 wireless speaker
, Five Stars
, Awesome speaker, superb sound quality

Cracking bit of kit, easy to set up, great sound quality, really loud as well.

Awesome speaker, superb sound quality. I purchased to connect with samsung sound bar but it also works great with alexa.

Excellent product, value for money.

Connects to my amazon eco and gives out a great sound. What else could you ask for.

360 does everything samsung claim with the exception of thè sugested quality of reproduced sound. Perhaps the r1 being the cheapest of the range has something to do with my disappointment but the same or better, can i feel, be obtained from some speakers that are much cheaper.

A very easy to use, reliable speaker at a reasonable price. The sound quality is more than what i expected. It looks really snazzy too, with touch-sensitive volume controls.

I was a little apprehensive because of the price, but all arrived safe, sound and on-time.

Got two of these as rear speakers for a home cinema system. Great quality and easy to use with a wifi enabled soundbar ( i have a 6 series one) for the home cinema setup. With the samsung app they can be split and put in different rooms playing the same or different music. Very versatile and the sound is amazing. Didn’t know whether to go for sonos or these. But since i had a samsung tv and phone i opted for these. The samsung stuff connects together effortlessly. At this price they are a great bargain.

Excellent product, great sound. Really helpful team at multimediaitems4you too, who replaced the clunky 2 pin plug with adapter lead for a standard uk 3 pin with no fuss. In fact they sent me a replacement long lead first but happily exchanged it for a nice short one.

Oddly, no one has pointed out that it doesn’t connect to amazon music. This is in spite of their website which shows the amazon logo among others it can connect too. Also had problems connecting with android application. Would probably go for an amazon echo instead if a smart speaker is your requirement.

Monster SuperStar High Definition Bluetooth Speaker – Neon Pink – very good sound quality

This speaker is a very convenient and handy size. It is well constructed and solid feeling. The sound quality is very good.

Liked it so much i bought 2.

Best portable speakers i’ve owned, bluetooth is excellent as well as the volume and battery life (4/5 hours max volume).

I’ve already bought 3 different brands of this type of item and this is the best one i’ve ever had i would recommend it to anybody it is absolutely fantastic and very lights thank you.

Saw this in a well know london store on sunday and looked it up on amazon while having a drink in the store. (3pm) found this for £30 cheaper and ordereed it. It arrive day the next day at 7pm. Unpacked and working in minutes, love it. Great sound and with the extra bass settings on my mini ipda sounds great.

This is a really great little product. It comes in really nice packaging, and complete with charging cables and a carrying pouch. Once charged (which takes only about 20 minutes at first) it is easy to pair – no codes required, and the sound is amazing for such a small and neat speaker. Perhaps not the greatest hi-fi as at high volume (and the volume does go really high) just a tiny bit tinny, but overall a really nice speaker, beautifully designed, well packaged, and a perfect size and shape for easy transportation. It will come on all our holidays and travels from now on. Maybe just a bit expensive at £99 – but it looks as if the price is beginning to drop.

  • Ideal, portable, speaker with plenty of power – amazing for its size.
  • Tiny speaker massive sound – slip in the hand luggage
  • of this type of item and this is the best one I’ve ever had I would recommend it to

A great clear sound with a good bass tone. It’s such a convenient portable size.

Very pleased with my purchase exelent product and very vast delivery.

Tiny speaker massive sound – slip in the hand luggage for your holiday, boom dancing to your fave tuuunnnes whilst glamming up for your euro disco night out.

I ordered this after trying my daughters, nice bit of kit at a great price unfortunately the unit was faulty and the supplier had no replacement.

Very small and truly pocket sized, this is very attractivly designed. It speaks to you to tell you what condition the speaker is in. I found this quite a handy feature. Big negative for me is that there are no tech specs with it, so how can you truly compare one speaker against another?. It is very toppy, the treble, even for a colleague who likes to hear the treble well out, seems out of balance with the rest of the audio spectrum. The mid ranges, like the human voice, are really good, and every word is distinguishable. However, futher down the range in the bass, it is quite poor, but then what can you expect from something that you can truly put in your trouser/jacket pocket?. I love the size, the sound is ok, well very good, depending where you are in the range. You have got to work out whether you like that balance. Its quite a tricky judgement to make. I do like it, you can take this anywhere and it will happily play music from you phone. I dont know what the battery life is like, when i do, i will update this review. The soft carry case is rather nice as well.

The best portable bluetooth speaker i have bought to date when you factor in the size, the weight and the sound. Nice and slim to take on your travels. The sound is amazing for the size, i don’t understand what the critical reviewers expect from such a small speaker. I think it’s the best pound for pound speaker on the market.

Best travel speaker i have owned. Great value and easy to use. The charge lasts days and its sound it amazing for its size. Buy it if you plan on going away and love to boom out tunes.

Love this, great sound, compact and easy to use. If i can’t find it my teenager will have ‘borrowed’ it for their room or the shower. Handy for parties and i use it for our 5th wheel caravan when away.

Great sound from small speaker, reviewed lots of others before deciding on this speaker. So glad i did, it’s a wonderful speaker.

It looks cool and is quite a talking point as i believe it’s fairly new to the uk. It feels good to touch and can be stood vertically, horizontally or flat. I particularly like that it pairs easily with my laptop and phone, and fits into my pocket. It also pairs with smartphones and can be useful at work – better than the speaker feature. The whole room can speak and listen. The built in mic has advanced noise cancellation which is good for wireless hands-free calling and conferencing. There is the occasional distortion at full volume, but this tends to be from poor quality originated youtube clips. Pros:the monster superstar has an unusual, compact, slim design, making it travel-friendly. It can be stood in various modes. It plays loud for its size, has a built-in speakerphone, and is splash-resistant. If you don’t have bluetooth devices there’s a 3. Cons:can distort at higher volumes, particularly with bass-heavy material and inferior recordings.

Lightweight and compact.

Philips BT50A/00 Portable Wireless Speaker : Great buy

Good sound, connected first time, easy to charge,.

Great sound quality when you can get it going , but seems very temperamental as to which device it will pair with. That is to say, pairing regularly with more than one other device seems to confuse it, and the whole thing has to be reset.

Excellent speaker and really loud.

Bought this for my grandaughter for xmas – she loves it. 99 this was a great buy and with the philips name you can’t go wrong.

This is a really good speaker just wish it had a slightly longer battery life for work etc.

Philips BT50A/00 Portable Wireless Speaker (2 W, Bluetooth, USB Rechargeable) – Blue : Pretty good really and excellent for the price. Easy to set up and sounds ok. Would be nice to have a strap to hang it up.

I actually think it is really good for the price i paid for it. Shame you need an audio cable if your laptop hasn’t got bluetooth.

Broke not to long affter buying about a month. Wouldnt charge sound quality was good though.

Fab sound, links to i phone in seconds and battery life is great.

Easy to use, looks good and surprisingly great sound quality for the price.

This bluetooth speaker is very good, good sound eacy to handle, it is a good product, if you think of the price.

Great product speedy delivery just as expected.

Marvellous little speaker all i expected & wanted great buy.

I wanted a small, light speaker i could pop in my suitcase and this is perfect. It’s easy to set up – just connects to my phone via bluetooth – and easy to charge via usb on the go. The sound quality is superb for the size of the speaker.

It doesn’t come with aux cable so you have to buy it separately. It connects up to 4 bluetooth devices.

I was so surprised how good this is.

Nice clarity and tone given its size and absolutely adequate volume for general use as a radio when paired with phone.

Very easy to use and good quality of sound considering its size.

Bought for my son as an extra xmas present. Expected slightly better sound considering the brand and reviews bit does it what it says on the tin.

Solid sound output & good bluetooth range. Battery lasts around 3 hours so either bring a means of charging or don’t plan on using it for longer.

Could not believe the clarity and that you literally switch on blue tooth and off you go.

Easy to connect can’t go wrong.

Berri Mini Ultra Portable Waterproof Bluetooth Wireless Stereo Speakers – Whirlwinded love it.

Although i haven’t used this a huge amount so far it’s been exactly as advertised and quite great actually. The phone can be in another room while the music will play without fault. The buttons are all functional and the only reason for the four stars is perhaps a longer battery life, it’s by no means incredibly short but it a longer battery life would mean it would be used more.

Very good value speaker with reasonable sound for the size. Have not tested the degree of waterproofing but seems ok for use in the bathroom. Note this has a single speaker so must be mono rather than stereo. It also includes mic for handsfree phone use and track forward and back. There is no volume control on the unit itself. Charging is via usb but don’t lose the lead as its not a micro usb socket on the device itself.

This is a really good speaker for the shower/bathroom. This is my second time ordering this speaker – the first one lasted about 9 months before it packed up. Volume is good and can be quite loud, so i wouldn’t place it too close to your ears. If the volume is not loud enough, try checking the volume on your phone (or whatever device you are using with the speaker). Once connected via bluetooth, it will connect to your device automatically so you can hop in the shower, switch on the speaker and press play – no fussfor me, each charge lasts about 3-4 weeks – that’s a daily shower of about 10-20 minutes, plus the not-so-occasional zoning-out showers of 45mins-1hrwarning: this may happen often, as you might get carried away when listening to music in the shower. If i have one problem with this speaker, it is that you can’t tell how long you have until it completely runs out of charge. My first speaker would suddenly die with a voice saying ‘please charge before (/to avoid?) destroying the battery’this second speaker is slightly better. It emits a beeping sound, after which you then have the length of a standard 3-minute song before it dies (with the same message). A bit of advice – when charging the speaker, make sure the little grey tab ,which covers the charging port, is still attached. Check it’s still there once you’ve finished charging – don’t lose iti lost the little tab on my first speaker, which i believe led to water entering my speaker – i’m convinced this is why i had to get a new one. Here are the specifications for the Berri Mini Ultra Portable Waterproof Bluetooth Wireless Stereo Speakers:

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • Suction cup for easy attachment
  • Google Music, Pandora and all other media APPS
  • Compatible with any Bluetooth media player, phone, iPod, iPad, Android Devices
  • Pairs your device with the speaker automatically when it is in range of the speaker

Few hours to fully charge equates to 6+ hours listening time, plenty to get me through an average shift. Sound is clear and good, even better when placed in the corner of a room. The sucker on the bottom means it can also be fitted to a car windscreen, useful in my line of work. No idea how waterproof it is, i don’t want to test it. The only problem i’ve had is the rubber charger port bung has come out and i’ve no idea where it’s gone – it’s not held in very well. Portable music with better sound quality than your phone can spit out and very cheap too – great.

What a lovely little device to have in your shower and sing along to. It works really well and i absolutely love it. It allows you to turn the volume higher or lower and can be pretty loud. It also lets you skip songs forwards or backwards. The battery lastsquite a long time and when you need to charge it, just plug it into your laptop. It does let you know when you’re in the shower if the battery is running low which is great and frightening at the same time when your not expecting it. Overall a great buy and not expensive. I’ll be buying some as stocking fillers this year for xmas.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Musical Innovation, love it!
  • Cheap and very cheerful.
  • Small but mighty little sucker!

Really surprised it worked at such a low price, extremely good bluetooth connection and long range connection, good quality sound and definitely waterproof.

Ordered this to use in the shower as i always play music from my phone. As my phone isn’t waterproof i had to continually dry my hands to change track or pause as song. I have placed this on my tile and it is brilliant so far the sound quality is enough for the shower and recently noticed that you can control the volume with a long press of the left/right track skip buttons. I also found that if you slightly wet the suction cup it stays on the tile brilliantly. The only downside is that i’m having to charge it every 3/4 day but thats just due to the whole family using the device. Would definitely buy again and you can’t go wrong for a fiver.

Good sound and battery life, charging cover is flimsy and fell off but still works well with all 4 of us in the family using it daily. Remember to turn off bluetooth or unpair the device from your phone / tablet when you’re out of the shower so the next person can use it otherwise you get their music and their calls if they are in the house.

Music in the bath or shower, er yes please. Usb re-chargable battery lasts a long time also. Useful for not getting damp in your phone which can be left in the next room and blue-toothed to the speaker. Good sound quality depending on the source music.

Great value works really well certainly good enough for the shower anyway but would not be good enough to sit to listen to music on and to be honest for the price i wouldn’t expect it to be. Does not come with charger but these days we all have usb plugs at home anyway so in some ways good not to have yet another though could be disappointed it you didn’t.

Ipad outside in hallway, speaker in the bathroom, nice and loud. On the ipad, next to the bluetooth symbol, the battery status is displayed. Unfortunately when the battery expires you only get a two-second verbal warning and it switches off. Monitoring the battery therefore helps. I’ve now had this speaker for six months. The precipitate nature of the warning as the battery dies is a little more difficult to manage than i thought. Also, the blurb says you get several hours of play-time. I rarely get any more than ninety minutes.

This sits in my shower and lets me listen to my favourite music whilst i get on with my morning routine. The sound is clear and crisp. It’s not going to win any awards from audiophiles, but it’s rich enough for most people. I have it stuck on the tiled wall and it stays put – no issues with it falling off. I’ve also tried it on the shower screen itself, which leads to a really good rich bassy sound, but it’s a less convenient position for me. Pairing is quick and easy, and the buttons work well. I’ve not used it as a hands-free phone (who wants to answer the phone in the shower?), so can’t speak to it’s quality on that front.

At first was scared but then i tried it while showering and was working okay (haven’t let the water running directly on top of it as i think it is not closed well enough). The sound is not the greatest but this is a good speaker for people that like to perform under the shower.

The first speaker i bought didn’t charge and had to be returned for a refund. The second works, but the buttons are unreliable – most of the time it is fine, but sometimes it takes several attempts to switch it on or off in particular. The sound quality is fine for the bathroom, it is easy to set up and use, and seems to be coping with the damp atmosphere.

Great little gadget and for it’s size quite bassy tone and volume, it’s certainly loud enough for a bbq party toodon’t get why other reviews say it won’t stick anywhere – mine adheres to any flat surface. Battery life is as has been described by others but obviously the louder you have it the shorter the play time, it’s certainly more than 4 hours though at any volume. I think the range is ok and 30ft is achieveable with line of sight but once walls are introduced to the equation it doesn’t quite reach top left to bottom right corners of my average 3 bed semi which would be about 25 ft. For a fiver though you can’t go wrong and i’m going to order another couple and use them in a kind of multi-room set up.

Phone automatically connects. The previous and next buttons can also be used as volume buttons although this is lot stated in the instructions. The instructions were alright but didn’t explain too much. There is a sucker on the back of the speaker so will stick to anything flat. Unfortunately it doesn’t stick to our tiles and we have a shower curtain so we leave it on the window sill, bath edge or mirror. The voice that comes on to tell you that the battery is dead and then it switches off.

Fantastic for the price with a good battery life and clear sound. It works well in the shower, although you must bear in mind that bluetooth struggles going through walls and doors, so the laptop of phone you connect with it must be close by (e. Less than 5 metres away, or less if you are in a different room. Connection speed is quick, and usually very reliable. Only experienced very intermittent problems and these are always quickly fixed by turning off and back on again.

Bought for my boyfriend who insists on having his phone on in the bathroom. He has had some trouble sticking it to the wall but that could just be user error. Saves me worrying about his having wires trailing all over the place. Sounds good and a month on we are all using it.

Really like this as it has good bass and not at all tinny as you would expect at this price. Yes i use it in the shower and also in the garden and whilst working on my cars or bikes as my phone can stay safely put away on the side but i can continue to listen to podcasts, music, internet radio through this. Easy to pair with my phone, can change volume and move tracks from the speaker but have changed track when i was trying to change volume as it is the same button but requires a long press. All in all good for the price and a reasonable sounding speaker.

I was sceptic about this at first, but honestly, i cannot imagine a shower without it. It’s super easy to charge, connect to your phone (via bluetooth), and control from within the shower. It’s a really safe way to listen to music without the risk of having your phone in the bathroom. The controls are really handy and i’d estimate the charge lasts about 4 hours, and you’re able to see how much power is left on your phone (beside the bluetooth symbol). I’ve had this speaker for 2 1/2 years and it still works perfectly. A great deal and i would definitely recommend to anyone who loves their daily shower jams.

Pros:– design, material, ease of use- rechargeable, waterproof, lightweight etc. – pricecons:– battery life (it is advertised at having 6 hours of playtime, well i the most i’ve got out of it on a single charge is about 2. 5 hours)- no volume control (the volume comes from the device you use- loose suction cupit’s a good little device to use if you’re someone like me that likes to listen to music non-stop (can’t stand silence in most places/cases)i’ve been using this since mid dec 2014, so i’ll probably come back & give an update of how long this device lasts for, in which i hope a long time i hope.
