Time2® Time2 Smart Wifi Speaker 20W, Happy customer

Delivery was nice and prompt. The setup was a breeze, which is always good. Works and connects well both on wifi and bluetooth. Connection was fine, second the free app is simple to use and connects directly to the speaker. Great to have the option to listen to different music in each room or the same music. The multi room mood has crystal clear sound quality and in sync. Stylish design, compact and been using it as a portable speaker aswel which is handy.

Easy to setup (wifi and blue tooth) and good quality sound. The app could be improved but more than adequate. Very satisfied with the product.

System does what i wanted by connecting to my mobile via bluetooth for radio & mp3 play. Lower score for the strange high pitched noise from the speaker as soon as it’s switched on, regardless if anything is being played or not. I’ll avoid a 2nd purchase from this brand.

Comments from buyers

“A fair set of features and good value for the price.
, Loved itwhen it worked.
, Tricky to setup but good value

This is a lovely little speaker – wifi and bluetooth enabled and with it’s own app for playing music from your phone, or other music services you might use. It’s a great size for travel – can be fully charged and then disconnected from the mains to use in the bathroom or outside. Sound is great – rich and well balanced. Really happy with this – worth buying as a gift as the price is really reasonable. Unfortunately, the speaker stopped connecting to my wifi in may 2018 which rendered it pretty useless for me. It kept asking for a password (not my home wifi password) and would not let me connect. Contacted the manufacturer and they can’t explain so it’s been returned and a full refund issued from amazon.

Got this for my g/f kitchen, performs perfectly and ideal for the small space. Just be patient when setting up the app and connecting it to your wifi.

Beautiful product problem is it takes forever to connect to the network- so not for me but i’m sure many people.

Not sonos quality but defo as good as any dab. I would imagine two speakers paired might work really well. Bluetooth pairs easily and works well. Wifi is much more difficult and not as per instructions. Then go into wps and hold done m on speaker to discover wifi network. Then go into muzo and the device will appear. This is very different from the instructions. Muzo app actually works well and is as good as sonos in my opinion although you obviously cannot add as many music services. However the bluetooth is a massive advantage as you can stream anything from your phone. Also, it is very portable and holds wifi and bluetooth signal well.

I love these speakers despite tiny bit tricky wifi set up but didn’t take me long great sound great price and loud i’ve recommended them to anyone whoes visited me recently.

Arrived promptly and i found it easy to setup. Works very well and have played music via bluetooth (pc), wifi (using the iphone application that is free to download) and from windows 10 you can see the speakers as a device to play music to. Sound quality has not been great but i have not tried anything to improve it yet. So maybe not all the bad 😉 a fair set of features and good value for the price.

I bought this as a christmas gift and was very pleased (relieved) to see how easy the set up was using airplay. The sound is good, it looks smart and not obtrusive.

Well thought it was great when it first came but fully charged it up, unplugged from mains it lasted 20 minutes if that. My friend bought one as well and that’s the same.

Great sound for a small speaker. Can’t get it to connect to my wifi for some reason?. Even by placing it right next to the hub??. Connected to bluetooth fine so not really bothered.

Have had it for 3 days now, great sound quality. Excellent for listening to music around the home, love it.

Betron MC500 Bluetooth Wireless Speakers – Union Jack : Speaker review

My dad loves it, very effective as a speaker. Now he can’t say the music isn’t loud enough but everyone else complains he plays it too loud haha.

It is not as good as a £200 large model. But it does a great job and the sound is pretty good for the price and the volume of this speaker.

Very cool and a top quality product. 1 for dangling patriotically in my car. 1 for simply blasting out the tunes. Good price and hopefully lasts.

I wanted something to play my ipod in the car and this is perfect. I like loud music and this little square belts it out without distortion and connecting couldn’t be easier.

Surprisingly good for the size and price and a very fast delivery.

Betron MC500 Bluetooth Wireless Speakers – Union Jack : I cannot believe how loud without distortion this little cube goes. Don’t get me wrong it won’t complete with a high end speaker but they come with high end prices. I did have a problem initially when my friend blutoothed his phone for a while and then we went back to my phone, the speaker kept saying ‘bluetooth synced’ (or whatever connection confirmation message it says) but i suspect this was because we didn’t turn it off and back on again and he still had bluetooth connected on his phone. Since then i’ve had no problems switching between devices.

Having bought betron speakers before l was not surprised by the sound and build quality of the speaker.

Really impressed with this speaker. Probably the best portable speaker i have bought; for a small device it is very loud and the sound quality is very clear.

Excellent sound and speedy delivery. Much smaller than my previous speaker but better sound from this one union jack design very nice.

Great little speaker so much power and a good price aswel.

Very small and compact but powerful.

Small , powerful and resilient. Has been used in the back of a car for a few months as the native speakers stopped working and this little jem more than adequately replaces them.

What a fantastic powerful thing this is. Playback quality is much better than i expected due to the price. We use it in the caravan and its perfect.

Amazing little speaker sound quality surprised me. Bought for my 9 year old son and he loves it.

Great little speaker which does pack a punch (for it’s size) in a small hotel room etc. I’m impressed given it’s small price. I use it by bluetooth from my nokia (microsoft) phone.

Have to say not that impressed with volume but it does the job not as good as my over model from betron but lighter for a holiday and will be loud enough for the beach.

Super good purchase, brilliant sound, quite good explained, how to pair. I can just recommend everybody to buy this product, instead of a brand product. I have also a world known brand bluetooth loudspeaker, which is promised as micro, but is much bigger and not as good in the sound like this one.

Good little device, does what it ‘says on the tin’, certainly loud enough for the hotel rooms i stay in.

This is a great little speaker. It’s pretty load, certainly load enough to hear things well in a big room. The quality is pretty good with decent mid-ranges. The bass is not so great but it is there. Very good for the price/size :).

A fantastic bit of kit for a speaker so small the sound is amazing would recommend it to everyone.

This is one powerful little cube. I had a jam wireless bluetooth speaker which although was small kept on losing connectivity and didn’t last long at all. The betron cube lasts and gives out a great sound. It’s definitely worth the money and it’s so small and handy, that you can take it anywhere.

Great sound , nice looking speaker for a great price.

Really good quality sound, can play either flash drive, cable to jack plug or blue tooth. Really pleased with my purchase.

Brilliant speaker very pleased with the sound i bought 1 for indoors now have purchased another for the work shop i do recommend this speaker.

Turned up on my doorstep the very next day and thought i’d quickly open it to see what it looks like and it’s brilliant value for money and the sound it’s amazing for such a small device, very pleased and thank you for a quick delivery to.

I just opened it up and it came without a charging cable and it specifically says it will bring one 🙄.

A brilliant little bluetooth speaker, i love it .

An excellent product and would recommend it.

Very good sound, has a great clear and deep sound.

Nice,the signal works so good. You can connect with your phone by bluetooth quickly.

Marshall 3.5 mm Acton Speaker with 4.0 Bluetooth – Black – Great choice

Looks amazing, sounds great, not had it above 2 yet. Bear in mind you will need an eu to uk plug adapter for it.

Bought this as a gift for my mates birthday and it went down a stormspent the weekend drinking beer and appreciating the sounds from this speaker which was amazing for the price. I own a set of sonos speakers and think this topped even them for sound quality and comes with the benefit of looking amazing and even having the replica guitar cable jack plug so you don’t have to go bluetooth. Would for sure recommend this product. Arrived on time from seller and was excellently packaged which just oozed quality during unboxing. Sound quality was outstanding.

I’ve seen a few people assuming this is a portable bluetooth speaker, its not, its mains powered, and although its fairly small, its not particularly portable. Aside from that, the sound quality is fantastic and only gets better as you use and learn where you like to keep the settings. The build quality is great, its sturdy, it feels nice and all the materials are clearly good quality. I have mine connected to an echo dot(2nd gen) and it works like a charm, it’s always there when i want itdefinitely recommended. Here are the specifications for the Marshall 3.5 mm Acton Speaker with 4.0 Bluetooth – Black:

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • Classic Marshall design – Vintage look with traditional front fret, gold-coloured metal details and that iconic script logo.
  • Compact frame – Same powerful sound in a much smaller package
  • Mighty bass – Carrying on a long-standing tradition of loud
  • 3 analogue interaction knobs – Fine tune sound to exactly how you like it
  • Bluetooth connectivity – Stream music directly from your smartphone, tablet or computer, no wires involved. Or use the included 3.5mm input and cable

Very good speaker & it looks the part in my son’s bedroom. He loves the detail of the controls. Very easy to pair up to his turntable & phone, good quality sound.

Fantastic sound quality, easy to pair with my iphone and really loud, also i can adjust the bass and treble, very unusual. I particularly wanted a speaker which was main only as it is going to sit in my kitchen/day room, so it will be used a lot. My only quibble is it came with a eu plug and no adaptor, fortunately i had a lead suitable, which is why it only gets 4 stars. Update a week laterlove it love it love it. I am changing it to a 5 star as all the sound is so good. I change the supplied eu to a uk plug.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Buy it!
  • Fantastic product, should be rated higer.
  • Do it!! Just do it!!

Definitely the best sounding speaker on the market for its current price (£100-£150). It has such a rich and powerful sound, it sounds full and clear at all volumes, even the lowest. One of my favourite speakers ever.

Love the sound but cannot function indepent if a power cable.

It is genuinely fabulous, deep, rich sound and very vibrant.

I came across this speaker in an air bnb and the sound was fantastic. I then bought it as a present for my partner who loves it. Great sound and handles heavy bass excellently.

It has a quality build and the sound output for such a small speaker is immense. This speaker does not have an internal battery so portability could be an issue, but with the sound that your provided with you won’t want to move the speaker anyway. I’ve only knocked a star off because it did not come with a uk power cable. But for less than £100 it was steal.

Love this the bluetooth connection works well with my apple phone and from a distance too.

Awesome sound quality beautiful built quality.

Great quality with excellent sound.

Great bit of kit plays my ipod and looks great.

Great speaker exactly as described. Very good connection and sound. And also looks amazing in the living room.

The acton is a fantastic little thing. The sound quality for your good old rock’n’roll is noting short of awesome. Plus the ‘bass’ & ‘treble’ dials let you optimise the sound depending on the band or genre, meaning that if it doesn’t sound perfect straight away, you can probably get it there. The only reason this gets a star deducted is because it’s not clearly stated that the product comes with an european/american plug, so you’re forced to buy an adapter. It’s a solvable issue but should be made clear at the point of sale.

Bit of a bose snob so when i heard marshall had released a bluetooth speaker i thought i’d do a head to head comparison. Be under no illusions this speaker is absolutely essential kit if your serious about your music, separate bass & treble controls plus that beautiful retro look make it the bluetooth speaker to own. . Marshall have in effect made a mini version of the speakers you see when you go to a concert.

Very rarely leave reviews but felt i had too for this one. I was looking for a speaker to fill our open plan kitchen/diner/lounge (circa 50 sq meters). I looked at many reviews and different options and finally opted for this one as a christmas gift to myself. It is hands down, the best £100 i have ever spent. Some of my friends/family/colleagues have bose, sony, b&o etc. This thing for me beats them all in terms of bang for the buck. I’d have happily paid £300 for this, it’s that good. Seamless pairing, old school ability to tweek the sound settings – it does it all and in a very interesting looking set up. Everything on it oozes quality and individualuaty.

Superb speaker, very powerful for it’s size and audio quality is excellent. Can’t recommend highly enough.

Fantastic service, came before christmas when only ordered just before. Great looking product that sounds brilliant.

GGMM Airplay Wireless Speaker – Great music speaker

Sound quality is pretty decent and always connect over bluetooth well. Best thing is the battery life. I’ve not timed it because it always seems to work over multiple days, just seems to go on and on.

For several months i have enjoyed using and listening to the cheaper ggmm m-freedom speaker, so when given the opportunity to test and review the ggmm m-4 i jumped at the chance. The ggmm m-freedom is a brilliant speaker, but it has some limitations, it doesn’t have bluetooth and it isn’t portable. The ggmm m4 offers the best of both worlds, as well as using air-play, it is fully bluetooth compatible and the built-in rechargeable battery and removable shoulder strap makes is completely portable, maybe the m4 should be re-named the m-freedom?like all ggmm products i have used, the packaging is excellent. Inside the attractive box is the speaker which is protected inside a cloth bag, the accessories include the mains power adapter, a 3. 5mm aux speaker cable (for attaching directly to a device that doesn’t have bluetooth), a leather shoulder strap and a substantial user manual. The user manual is 40 pages long, however, only 4 pages are in english. The speaker is very well made, in fact when removed from the packaging it definitely screams quality. The speaker cabinet is made from wood, not plastic which gives it a solid feel. The cabinet is dressed in microfiber leather and along with the alloy speaker rings, it looks and feels like a high-end product. Dimensionally the m4 is a similar size to the m-freedom, the m4 is slightly taller, however, the m-freedom is much deeper and slightly heavier, but when you consider the m4 is portable you can understand why it has been made lighter.

I use this at work as the lorry radio is dead. It’s great and just loud enough over the engine noise. Battery lasts the shift and i’ve never had any problems connecting. Ordered blue, received red but didn’t care.

Being used in my mgb instead of modifying the car, a little quiet at 70+ mph but great all the same.

This product was received free from the manufacturer in return for an honest and unbiased review. I have had the pleasure of reviewing a few products from ggmm now, and i have always had the same first impression – real quality. The packaging has a strong, expensive feel to it, as though it has been packaged by a company that really cares about the product. Once you open up the box you are presented with a magnificent looking speaker, carefully wrapped in a protective cloth bag. It’s so good to see this obvious pride in the product. The speaker looks and feels great. It is a wooden shell with a faux leather covering and set off with alloy rings around the speaker cones. It has a solid feel and simply looks stunning. I have rarely had a better first impression when opening a box. Also in the box is an instruction manual, carry strap, 3.

Good clear sounding speaker with lots of bass. But could have been louder considering its size.

  • Amazing battery life.
  • Great Wireless Speaker
  • a little quiet at 70+ mph but great all the same

I’ve been looking for a good quality small speaker for a while now and came across this on amazon. It arrived well packaged and i couldn’t wait to try it out. The design was very sleek and looks great when it’s in use. I was amazed at how good the sound quality is. There is no interference whatsoever, just a high quality crisp sound. The speaker contains a power on button, situated on the top as well as volume buttons next to the power button. Pairing bluetooth was very easy, hold down to power button until you hear the speaker make a noise, this indicates that it is turned on. Now you can play your favourite music through it.

 this is a very powerful compact portable speaker with some decent connectivity options of aux, bluetooth but also through your wi-fi as well. This is very easy to use and i didn’t need to take much working through the instructions. Press power to turn it on and cycle through to connect via the aux wi-fi or bluetooth. This was painless to connect to our ipod and this also connected to both our pcs easily and painlessly within about a minute. This has a nice look and finish about it and and sounds good too. Clear with good range of treble and bass (especially for the size) volume is good and goes up extremely loud with very little distortion when cranked up. There’s no way we will ever use its full volume levels as it can go up very loud, but its nice to have the option.

Looks great with nice sound.

Very pleased with look and performance , price but agree with one or two critics could do with a bit of treble control, however overall very happy.

Make sure this fits
by entering your model number.

Good sound but if you listening true bas – fail. It’s woofer sound but you can always use equaliser. To be true we launch from pop till hardcore. Only dub,drum,dnd,trap by bass was different. Bluetooth not strong 5-8m but wireless was fine. Apps for android (official app not working with all smartphones). Bubbleupnp for dlna/chromecast – tested its free. Full working with any android versions. Connection for charger not usb. So design – taken tanker bank 50. 000ma (it,s bigger version of power bank) most important thing of that is tanker should be safe (li-polimer not li-ion).

Very well built and stylish. Unfortunately, the sound quality was just disappointing. Good bass, but it lacks balance of tonal range. The mid-range is muffled and the treble is absent (no tweeters. )there’s no musicality in this device. Sadly, i had to return it right away. Bottom line: 5 stars for built quality and 2 stars for the sound quality. Update:i have decided to increase the rating of this speaker from 3 stars to 4 stars, due to the following:a few days ago ggmm gmbh invited me to experience the new version of the m4 bluetooth speaker, which i have accepted with the condition that i wouldn’t ‘commit myself to publicly review the device as a compensation for the free speaker. I only commit myself to give you my honest opinion about my own listening experience. ‘i must stress out that i collect bluetooth speakers, and i have about a hundred units of very different brands.

I’ve had my blue ggmm m4 for just over a day, arrived well packaged overall build quality to a high standard. It’s already been used in the garden and in our house still on one charge. Connection is straight forward to bluetooth or wifi from my iphone. I must say the sound is very good for a little product no distortion.

Creative Sound Blaster Roar Pro Portable Speaker – Well constructed item with great sound.

So i have got purchased a number of bluetooth speakers and also some airplay only bose ones. For starters i wish i had gone for bluetooth rather than airplay from a connectivity point of view. At the time bluetooth was a bit ropey and i was everything apple. What a mistake now i am still apple but my kids are android so they cannot use airplay speakers. I have not used the mic functionality on this but it looks interesting. From a music perspective the audio quality is really good comparable to my bose soundlink 20 and far superior to my anker (although admittedly they are in a much a lower price category and are still great value for money). I was expecting it to be really bassy but infact the mid range comes through really clearly. Of course when my daughter has dance music it can still handle that really well but the vocals are crystal clear. Battery life is really good and we have had it in the backgarden on a relatively low volume for 5 hours without any issue.

Looks and feels rather stylish. Quite compact and reassuringly hefty. Very easy to set up and use. It synched with all my mobile devices easily and quickly. Does have a lot of features, perhaps too many for some. I personally won’t use most of them. However i found it rather too bassy and on occasions the bass was a little too loud and overbearing.

Big sound from such a small box. It arrives well packages and out of the box looks stylish. It has a charger with a uk plug but you can charge it via usb too. It has the size and weight of a slightly flattened brick. It has all manner of ways of connecting but bluetooth will likely be the most used. Using an iphone and ipad pro bt connection was simple and quick and sound good. It will work with a smart phone as a speakerphone/mic. You can insert a microsd card into the slot to either record your phone calls to or play music from since it has an inbuilt mp3 player. There are many more features like sound profiles and using it as a personal pa systerm, a sleep function. Here are the specifications for the Creative Sound Blaster Roar Pro Portable Speaker:

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • Integrated MP3 player, microSD and record function
  • 5 driver system with 2 high-frequency drivers
  • 6000mAh Li-ion battery that lasts up to 10 hours
  • Audio-Codecs: aptX Low Latency, aptX and AAC
  • 3 preset audio profiles

I have primarily used the sound blaster as a replacement for desktop computer speakers. It is a solid piece of equipment and quite heavy. I leave it permanently connected to the mains, but have used it on battery as a portable item. It connects easily via bluetooth , though when on the desktop it is connected by 3.

There are many bluetooth speakers out there, offering many different features, but this is one of the best i’ve used. From setup to sound quality, and from features to ease of use, the creative sound blaster roar pro is a winner. The roar pro is about the size of a brick, and looks very discreet, with the most of the top and front surface area given over to the speaker grille, with just a small company logo on the front, and five buttons on the top. The roar pro offers multiple ways to play audio, including bluetooth, aux in, usb, micro sd and nfc. I undertook my testing of this device using the bluetooth and aux in options. Bluetooth setup was pain-free – i find that the rule with initial bluetooth setup is always to read the relevant part of the manual. I did so with the roar pro was up and running in less than a minute. So, the roar pro offers good looks and easy setup, but what about the sound quality?. My disclaimer is that i am not an audiophile, but i enjoy rock, pop and classical music and have listened using many types of speaker and headphones over the years. Put simply, i believe that the roar pro offers excellent sound quality for music and spoken word, relative to the small size of the speaker and its genuine portability.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • An impressive, quality portable speaker
  • as good as the roar2
  • Well constructed item with great sound.

I have owned several previous models of creative’s roar speaker range from the original roar, to the more improved roar 2 which i still own to this day. To be honest, i was a little baffled to why they’ve seemed to have gone back in time with the roar pro; it’s the same weight and size as the original roar, however has a black finish rather than silver and a couple of spec improvements. I remember when the roar 2 came out, creative boasted the more sleek design which improved in being smaller in size and weight whilst still outputting quality audio and they were right to boast about it, there was clearly a quality boost with a more refined design. In comparison from the roar pro and the roar 2; the only difference i can see on the spec sheet is that it can handle one more additional codec which is ‘aptx-ll’ in addition to the previous ‘aac’, ‘aptx’ & ‘sbc’, plus the battery has been improved to delivery 10 hours on a full charge than the previous 8; further more, if you have more than one roar pro, apparently you can link one to be a designated right speaker and the other a left. Another thing to add, this one is compatible with the creative iroar mic wireless voice projector with emotion amplifier which basically turns the roar pro into your own pa system, but at an extra cost of course. I have had the roar pro & roar 2 side by side and both on full power (when the speakers drop to low battery, the volume and performance is affected) and i honestly couldn’t tell the difference in sound quality between them; both provided decent loud volume, clear audio and a blimmin’ good kick of bass, especially when the terabass mode was activated. With the minor spec improvements, increase in size and weight, why oh why would anyone want to splash out an extra £50-£70 for the roar pro (£167 at the time of review on amazon & £150 on creative’s official website), when the roar 2 is available for £99?. Just doesn’t make sense to me. If i hadn’t tested any of the previous models i would have given it a higher rating as it is a very good speaker, however as i have, it’s too hard not to compare, especially when there is such price difference and there really isn’t enough improvement to warrant the much higher price tag; just seems like a but like a marketing ploy if you ask me. Overall this is a good speaker, it’s just there is a better alternative available at a better price from the same manufacture.

This is a review of the creative soundblaster roar pro portable bluetooth speaker. This is quite a a compact but has and impressive array of speakers and a lot of features. It is packaged in a branded box and supplied with; a power adaptor with uk, us and eu plugs, a micro usb to usb cable and instructions. The build quality looks to be excellent with including metal grills and a rubberised soft feel back. There are a lot of buttons and controls with most being on the back and commonly used ones on the top. The unit has five speakers in all including the sub-woofer and has two amplifiers with one optimised for lower frequencies and the other for higher frequencies. You can power the speaker either using the mains adaptor or via the micro usb to usb cable supplied using a multi or phone charger. It has a built in rechargeable battery which is claimed to last 10 hours. This is obviously dependant on use and volume but does not feel too far from the truth. This can also charge phones and other mobile devices via the usb output socket which is a useful feature.

Ordered this speaker to replace my old big jambox by jawbone. This speaker is definitely worth the money, has some amazing bass levels(can be adjusted on the speaker) and has so serious volume and can easily fill a house. Also has a handy battery in so you can charge your phone at the same time. Amazing little speaker and definitely worth the money.

A couple of years ago i got one of the original creative soundblaster roar speakers and was very impressed with it and its performance and it’s been sitting on my desk beneath my imac (and used regularly) ever since. So i was especially interested to try this newer pro version and see if it’s still one of the best wireless speakers available at its price. The first thing that strikes you, if you own the original model, is that this pro version shares the same chassis and is exactly the same size and basic design as the original model – so if you have a carry-case for the original it should fit this one too. There are a few differences with the onboard features and controls, but the basic design is the same. It’s a very solid-feeling unit, brick-solid actually with mostly metal construction that’s partially wrapped in silicon and there’s no creaky or squeaky sounds as you handle it, everything feels very securely and solidly put together. It’s small enough to be easily portable but you’ll be aware it’s in your backpack, it’s not the most lightweight unit. The roar starts quickly with a short musical stab sound and then it’s ready to play from your choice of 4 sources – you can use bluetooth (with an nfc connection option), analogue line-in, usb or you can play mp3’s directly from a microsd card inserted into the slot on the back. The bluetooth feature includes support for the aptx codec which can significantly improve the audio quality but only works if you have an aptx-compatible device (most aren’t). If you connect the roar to your pc or mac using a usb cable it works as a standard usb-audio device, drawing the power it needs over usb too so you only need to connect a single cable. Your roar can also declare complete independence and carry its own music around stored on a microsd card (fat/fat32 format up to 32gb) inserted into the back of the unit.

The market for larger portable bluetooth speakers like this one is getting crowded. I think bose may have been first, but they have strong competition from some of the more serious audio manufacturers like loewe and b&w, and this is creative’s entry into that market. It’s about the same size as a hardback novel, and reassuringly heavy. There is a nice rubberised finish over much of the box, and it looks attractive enough, with a row of buttons on the top and a lot of minor controls and connectors hidden around the back. A mains charger, usb cable and auxiliary audio cable are included in the box. It is pretty feature-rich – it supports the apt-x codec and aac audio, which should improve quality. It has a microsd card slot onto which you can load mp£ and wma files to play directly on the speaker (although the playback controls are restricted to play and track skip – there’s no way to browse for particular songs). There are various options for tuning the sound – you can select one of three modes from ‘warm’, ‘neutral’ and ‘energetic’; there is a ‘tera bass’ function which is designed to improve bass response at low volumes, and a ‘roar’ function which is very similar to the loudness button on a 70’s era hi-fi amplifier. You can also use the inbuilt battery (claimed to be good for 10 hours playback) to recharge your phone via usb. Pairing with my iphone was easy – hold down the bluetooth button to make the speaker discoverable, look for it in bluetooth on the iphone, hit connect and you’re done.

I already use jbl products, but for some reason my wife’s iphone won’t pair with them – possibly because they are already paired with mine. It seemed sensible therefore to get an entirely different bluetooth speaker which hopefully would work with her phone and which i would not mess about with by pairing with my phone. – hence the addition of the soundblaster pro portable. Although it looks like a bit of a brick in the pictures, in reality it is quite unaggressive, being about the size of a thick paperback – though rather heavier. It paired first time, and after charging it up, my wife enjoyed putting it through its paces. The sound quality is really good, and does not distort even when the volume is very high. She also loved the roar button to boost the bass for some of her more headbanging music. The ability to play while charging is also good – not all speakers can do this, apparently. She also liked that she could charge her phone from her soundblaster while i’m charging mine from a jbl. The build quality is very high, so it should also last a long time.

This speaker rocks, one of the must have product.

In my experience, creative labs have always produced quality sound cards and accessories for the pc, and although i haven’t used any of their products for a long time, i was particularly interested to explore their current range, when looking for a bluetooth portable speaker to use with my computer. I’m very impressed with the sound quality of this small device, which is not only a portable speaker but also an external sound card when connected to a pc. This allows a single usb cable to provide power and data connections and the use of sound blaster control panel software (when connected to a pc) for personal choice of equaliser settings, including virtual surround sound, which i prefer. Although i use this with my pc all the time, i’m pleased to have the added functionality of a ‘stand alone’ portable speaker, with a rechargeable li-on battery, that can play music from mobile devices via bluetooth. The unit is very solidly built and doesn’t rattle or vibrate, even on higher sound settings, and setting the device up for use was very easy and straightforward.

In my job, i give plenty of presentations every week (these often include video and audio clips) to groups of people (30 – 100) and i normally cart around a pair of fairly hefty creative speakers creative gigaworks t20 – which i have had for nearly eleven years and which have never let me down. I have been on the lookout for something a little more compact so that i don’t have to haul around unnecessary weight and now i have found another creative device that meets my every need. Small, compact and fairly weighty – this bad boy not only looks and feels premium, the quality of sound is fabulous. I have paired it via nfc with my samsung edge s7 to play music from amazon music and it plays flawlessly with lots of oomph. I have also connected via bluetooth to my ipad mini 4 to play music from my itunes collection – unbelievable audio and no lag. But i digress, my main source for the roar is my microsoft surface pro and either via bluetooth or via the supplied aux cable, again the sound from this unit is amazing. I have been so impressed with this device, i have bought the compatible sound blaster microphone creative iroar mic wireless voice projector with emotion amplifier – paired together, they work effortlessly to create an ultra portable pa system, suitable for gatherings for up to a 100 people in a medium sized conference hall/venue. Buy without hesitation (btw my son who has a bose soundlink mini bluetooth speaker ii – carbon – thought it was great, too).

Creative sound blaster roar pro portable speakerin the box. The speaker, usb lead, dire4ct jack to jack lead and transformer with uk plug plate plus instructions and guarantee. This is a well-made speaker with a metal grill and good quality plastics. The main control panel has a matt rubberised effect. It feels very solid and is quite heavy compared to other similar speakers i have. It measures 20 cm long by 11 cm deep by 5. It has a built in rechargeable battery to make it portable.

Quick delivery and exactly as described. Sound will never replace a proper stereo speaker system but as a portable device it sounds great. Good bass, which i like, but doesn’t drown out other tones. I had read some reviews that said at low level sound there was a hiss but i haven’t noticed that and i have pretty good hearing. The button to change the tones is handy for different types of music. I’m happy and it does the job it was intended for. The sound is more than adequate to fill a large room and for outdoors, the bluetooth covers a large area so you could walk about with the paired device and not losehad it a few days now sometimes the bass is too strong and it’s difficult to hear the words of some songs, even switching on/off roar button etc doesn’t help.

Quick review============i’ve had many bluetooth speakers over the years and this is certainly a powerful one. In terms of styling it’s now looking a little boring, but the sound is really powerful. I’ve had a roar speaker before and only had to reset it twice (press and hold the power button for more than 10 seconds then press the power button again to turn on the speaker) it’s not too stylish, but it is good looking and the sound is impressive. Pros:high end build qualityfull of featureswell balanced sound with awesome basssuperb battery lifecan be charged by usbcons:some of the features i don’t think i’ll ever usefull review===========i have used the bose and was impressed at the styling and the sound was faultless. Bose ® soundlink bluetooth speaker iiithe creative roar isn’t as pretty but i think it’s more powerful. It has charm, warmth and is the perfect guest. Sound=====this is where i thought the bose would win hands down. But side by side, i actually prefer the roar. The bass is more natural but loud. It’s clear, defined, and resounding.

This discreet black box produces quite a lot of sound. But it’s not just a bluetooth speaker – so perhaps it’s best suited to people who will actually use the additional features. I’ll talk about the features separately, starting with its most unique features. Speakerphone/sound recorder* quite a few bluetooth speakers allow you to also use them as speakerphones when making phone calls. However, this sound blaster roar pro has the added feature of allowing you to record content too. You just have to insert a micro sd card into a slot on the back of the device. There are then record and pause buttons on the back to operate the sound recording feature. I sometimes interview people at work and have used a small voice recorder at times. However, i found the sb roar pro’s voice recorder to record and then play back sound that seemed to be of a higher quality.

Somewhat bassy, but powerful and punchy for all that, the roar pro is the size, weight and shape of a small brick and kicks out enough volume for a living room party. I’ve had the original roar since it came out, and it has proved powerful, reliable and highly useful. This upgrade, with additional features such as ‘soothe to sleep’ and a full ten hours of battery life, tweaks the original concept, with refinements to almost every feature. The bottom line on this is that you get an astonishing amount of power and bass from such a small unit, you can connect two devices by bluetooth at once, have ad hoc connections, connect direct to the computer via usb or another player by mini-jack, and even take and receive calls as a hands-free unit—useful for conference calling from one meeting room to another. The sound quality is distortion free at any level, though the roar function compresses it for extra volume — probably not what you want to get the most out of beethoven’s pathétique, but great for parties. Tera bass is a psycho-acoustic bass replacer for listening at low volume levels without loss of apparent oomph. You can also set for warm, neutral or energetic. To my ears, everything on the roar pro is warm, but you can adjust that from your smartphone or computer anyway, which is what this is mainly for. The original roar has outlasted every other similar device we had from the same period, most of which are elegant but flimsy. Good, thumpy sound for good, thumpy music.

Great speaker nice and loud.

Sound quality 5* design and its functions 5* battery life 4*, deffo worth its price.

Orbitsound Spaced 360 USB : Just purchased my 3rd one!

Phenomenal room filling sound for the price.

Supplier was very helpful with delivery updates.

Needed a speaker for a bigger room.

. It is portable but more for moving around the house or taking camping as it weighs a lot. Sound is great for size of speaker and connects to android phone and ipad easily. Works well on the table outside as it is multidirectional, so everyone gets to hear the music evenly without one person getting blasted. Just seen this on lightening deals with no reviews. It is an absolute bargain and worth the money at that price :-).

Xx neat quirky speaker, love it.

I bought one for myself, my son loved it so i bought one for him and have just bought a 3rd for my wife’s studio. Excellent sound – i don’t agree at all with the comment that it lacks bass. A very good price for a quality product.

Great producr and excellent retailer , i’ve been that impressed with this unit and sound that this is the second one i’ve purchased .

Bought for my hubby for a birthday gift, he is very happy with it. Sounds good, charges well and lasts well. For the price, i did buy a coloured skin for it but it is still good value for money.

A great looking machine that seems very well put together and is made even better looking by the choice of coloured cases available. Not sure how the exposed speakers will stand up to much handling though – would have felt safer with metal mesh covers for them. Having read all the great reviews perhaps i was perhaps expecting too much. I was completely underwhelmed by the experience – not much volume, very little bass and a generally unbalanced feel to the whole sound presentation. Didn’t use my sound meter on it but my studio 19 solo 100 speaker which is only rated at 20 watts blew it out of the water and it was not even in the same league as my libratone style. Considering the spaced 360 was originally priced at £200+ i’m not too impressed. Definitely not my go to speaker – probably my 4th choice. Sorry, i really wanted to like it but i think it will spend most of its time in the drawer.

This is a premium product for a very, very reasonable price. Great build quality, great sound, great bluetooth connection. Cannot fault it for what i paid considering this was a bose competitor that just didn’t have the financial backing it quite patently should have got. Lastly, great packaging, really adds to the feel of a premium product.

ADIN B1BT 10W Vibration Bluetooth Speaker – – Great quality and loud

This is a superb piece of kit for the money. I compared it with the more popular orb style of bt and wired speakers. It is well made and reliable. The key difference is, of course, this is a vibration speaker. Placement is critical to getting good sound quality – place it on the wrong surface and it will perform worse than the orb style. Glass surfaces are good too, although this is not a suction speaker. (others do have suction mounts which work well on windscreens. I would imagine you can get after market suction mounts for this adin. In summary:pros: well made, good quality sound, reliable, simple leadcons: bluetooth will use battery power.

Great sound from a small device.

Bluetooth hookup very easy with ipad2 and starts playing automatically. Sound quality fair to good and very dependent on surface attached to. Not as good a sound as non bluetooth similar item purchased from maplin which had excellent sound quality. This item is more prone to distortion at very top end of volume range. Overall still gave it 4 stars due to ease of use. Here are the specifications for the ADIN B1BT 10W Vibration Bluetooth Speaker –:

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • Innovative 10W RMS speaker which vibrates sound from any hard surface it sits on for an amazing acoustic experience
  • 360° Omni-directional HiFi sound
  • Rechargeable battery allows you to take music almost everywhere
  • Durable Aluminium Alloy raw material
  • Play music from various external sources using the 3.5mm Audio jack, or stream to the unit via Bluetooth

Only one word can describe this speaker. The sound quality is out of this world for such a small speaker i would advise anyone who wants a bluetooth speaker to buy this one. You can use it using bluetooth or hardwired with the cable supplied. I have tried on mobile phone and on samsung galaxy tablet, its so easy to set up.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • The best small portable speaker you’ll buy
  • Solid, well designed, powerful – but audio range is highly dependent on the surface.
  • 10w powerful vibration speaker well worth its price.

Connection it is easy and the sound it is nice. If you don’t expect to have 6. 1 audio system and you realize that it’s a small speaker you w’ll have a nice experience.

Very good sound if positioned correctly.

I had been given one of these and then purchased more for sons in lawsa xmas presenters.

This vibration speaker seems really well made. It feels solid and sturdy, and depending on the surface you attach it to, can give really great results. The rechargeable built-in battery seems to last for ages. More than just a gimmick or gadget, it makes a really useful portable speaker.

Just one negative point, it should have a 3. The plug is very fragile, it will be damaged in no time, it’s not a reliable plug.

I purchased this having heard a friend use his. Great quality and loud, unfortunately though, only once you have found the right surface for it.

A very useful little gadget, does exactly what it said and is portable and perfect for our use.

Solid product, well built, good design on the whole. Well, that depends on the music and very much on the surface you place it on. You may be wise to invest in a support, suction cup or similar device – it needs to be stuck/held onto the surface at any decent volume to avoid rattling against that surface. It can give deeper sounds, which you can feel, but most people would probably want a normal speaker to reproduce the missing frequencies. There is no audio/out jack plug. You the included usb-to-audio/usb cable, which might be a disadvantage for those not using the (boomtech) bluetooth features. Overall, a wonderfully design, heavy product, but which is unlikely to replace your full-range, air-pushing speakers. It is amazing how sound is transmitted through ones skull. At your own risk – it’s not design for that).

I think this little speaker is a marvel, everyone at work who listened to it said they were going to get one as well, being bluetooth you can place it in your room without irritating wires trailing everywhere, and the sound quality is more than adequate.

Had a similar item before, but it developed a fault. Although the previous one had a micro sd slot, fm radio and remote control, i prefer the bluetooth connectivity on this new replacement item as i do not need to use the lead to connect to my mobile phones or tablet pc – only to charge the inbuilt battery.

This is a great little gizmo, gives good sound on a variety of surfaces. Sticking it on your forehead is a weirdly addictive social activity.

I’ve now been using this speaker for six months and i’m very happy with the compact size and performance. Though the sound quality may not be what you may expect from a top end speaker system you are not paying top end speaker prices. By moving it around on different surfaces you can get differing tone quality. This is a budget vibration speaker and as such it does all that is expected.

This item is soooo good, the sound that comes out of this little speaker is amazing.

Bought it for my husband for christmas 2015 and it’s the best thing since sliced bread , over the moon with it.

Good portable versatile vibro speaker.

This is a great item – very compact with good sound quality. Very reasonable delivery time. Would recommend to others and purchase again in future.

EMEET Wireless Speakerphone – Conference Phone OfficeCore M1 Bluetooth Speaker Conferencing Speakerphone, Great speaker compatible with Alexa

The emeet sound quality if perfectly good for a meeting, and the unit is both lighter and smaller that i was expecting it fits perfectly into the neoprene pouch it comes with. After a quick read of the instructions when i received my speaker i was able to use it within seconds of needing it when a different brand of speaker stopped working in the middle of a meeting. The unit itself is nice and compact, well made and the build quality is robust, possibly one of the best pieces of it equipment i’ve ever purchased. It picks up people clearly within 2 to 3 metres, which is better than a laptop i really can not recommend this item enough it is small and portable, comes with a handy pouch for transport, extremely easy to setup (just plug and play) and provides superb audio quality from the built-in speaker and echo-canceling microphone. It comes in extremely useful for small-medium meetings where several people may want to gather in a meeting room i have tested it with many technologies with complete success – lync, google hangouts, skype, adobe connect etc. If you are looking for a usb speakerphone, you need look no further hands-down this is the best product by a very long way comes highly recommended.

I bought the speakerphone to do skype calls with another office and everything works as it should. The product is easy to set up and does what it says so i am happy.

My choice was between this and the jabra which i have had experience with before. I am very, very glad i went with this. Sound quality is fantastic and the design of the speaker is aesthetically pleasing and more robust (at least to the touch).

Comments from buyers

“Look no further this is the one.
, Brilliant sound quality
, Look no further for a speaker phone

Great sound easy to use highly recommend.

Sounds quality is significantly better than the built in speakers on my iphone or my google pixel. I’d really recommend for taking calls while working or for calls in a boardroom. You should be aware – they offered a free product as a incentive to review the speaker within so many days of purchasing. I didn’t accept this and have waited for over 6 months before reviewing.

Don’t let the cheap price put you off. This bit of kit is excellent. I know at leart five people who have bought one on my recommendations.

There’s not many little devices like this on the market, its a awesome buy. Using it for playing music to be on different parts of the room and its very clear.

I love listening to musics and watch movies on my smartphone and tablet, but the speakers on them aren’t loud enough. Therefore, i bought this bluetooth speaker. So far, with its price, it has met all my expectations. Loud and clear speakers with a taste of bass, btw it has a decent battery too, which could last for a good amount of time it looks pretty speaker. I can take it to anywhere and very inconvenient. It is easy to connect my phone with bluetooth.

We bought this speaker as we do a lot of conference calls and up until receiving this speaker, we have always huddled around one of our phones in speakerphone mode. We’ve now started to use this speaker and its fantastic. With six microphones built in it means that everyone can take part from the comfort of their seat rather than having to jockey for a place near the phone. It is small and neat and ultimately portable and comes with its own carry case & charging lead. I would not hesitate in recommending this to others – its a really cute piece of kit.

I bought this speaker a few months ago. I’m no audiophile, but the sound quality is fine for my use. I love the fact it’s solar powered. I just leave it by the window during the day and can use it whenever i want. I have mine connected to my echo and often play music when i’m in the shower, so i just plop the speaker on the sideboard in the bathroom and sing along (quite badly it has to be said). The only issue i have, and the reason the speaker only gets four stars, is that the speaker does have a tendency to stutter. I can understand this to a point as it has to go through a wall half the time (though a bluetooth speaker i have from another manufacturer doesn’t suffer this problem), but it also does it occasionally when it’s in the same room as the echo, and as it’s never more than 10 feet away at any time i doubt grde’s claims of 30 feet. Other than that, i’m very happy with my purchase.

 i wish i would have found this conference speaker sooner. Extremely easy to use with fantastic sound quality. Simply amazing 100%this conference speaker is fantastic for the office as well as home use. Conference calls, family skype calls, listening to music while cooking in my kitchen… and all without missing a call or a notificationfor me it’s a clear winner. I truly wish i would have bought it sooner. Prosamazing presentation – ideal for a gift. Not this one though, this one is mine ;)good clear instructions (in real english)1 year manufacturer guarantee. Ease of use (5 buttons-straight forward use)great sound. Tested and widely used for over 3 weeks with microsoft surface pro, iphone x and apple watch series 3. My new conference speaker is linked to all three devices ;)good battery life. Fast charging time (4 hours max)consnone really.

For a design & marketing company, it is very sleek and modern. Very useful for small meetings and travelling with abroad.

This thing is amazing in every way. I use it for skype and mobile conference calls. It’s actually better than my clients very expensive voip handset.

I really can not recommend this item enough it is small and portable, comes with a handy pouch for transport, extremely easy to setup (just plug and play) and provides superb audio quality from the built-in speaker and echo-canceling microphone. Seemless transitions from skype calls, to cell phone call, to listening to podcastsgreat visual indications when it is picking sound from and more importantly lights up red, when you have muted it. Highly recommended for anyone needing to be on conference calls.

The magnetic idea is fantastic, i attached the speaker on my two dining table metal legs, it feels brilliant hearing music like that. The only con is sometimes other devices can’t easily connect to the speaker through bluetooth except the phone firstly connected it.

Quality of sound is just as good as my son’s boss. I love the fact it has build in solar panel and silicon aoll around it. A perfect speaker for home, diy and holidays. Feels very solid and pretty loud. I have tried to connect it to alexa but it didn’t see it so i don’t think is compatible with it.

We bought this phone to use it for conference calls. Didn’t disappoint us so far.

Vifa Helsinki Bluetooth Speaker | Nordic Design | Perfect Portable Wireless Speaker, Stunning Sound Quality – The Best!

I use this wonderful little speaker as my go-to portable travel speaker. If sound quality is your main consideration then i whole-heartedly recommend it. As others have noted the vifa app can be frustrating to use (it sometimes takes a couple of times to open it before it recognises the speaker) but at lower volume levels it sounds better if you switch it to ‘late night’ mode and then change it back to ‘natural’ mode above 60% volume. Volume gradations are also a little too widely spaced when using your phone to adjust so better to make incremental changes directly on the speaker itself. The quibbles aside, the sound is the reason for buying this speaker. It plays loud (especially for its relatively diminutive size) and has a relatively flat frequency profile with no dynamic compression at higher volume levels. Not the cheapest speaker on the market and perhaps quite feminine looking in style, nevertheless this is a great-sounding unit. Worthwhile shopping around to try and find a discount.

Checked out various bluetooth speakers prior to buying this one, close to buying b and o beolit 15, but not to sure about 360 sound feature, i like my music to come to me from the front, like at a concert,(old school i know) the vifa helsinki does just that and the sound clarity is superb, i would recommend this to hi fi enthusiasts.

By some fluke last week, two wonderful speakers came up on amazon warehouse deals – the vifa helsinki and a dali katch, both at rather crazy prices for such top speakers. If you’ve read my dali katch review – you don’t need to read on, as this borrows heavily from it since both speakers are at the top of their game and the reviews needs must be similar. Because the prices were so very good, i took the plunge and bought both, thinking that i’d keep the best one of the two. But there wasn’t a ‘best’ – both showed themselves to be surprisingly different, but both in their own way, outstanding. For now, i’m keeping both. With my son, this week, we’ve had fun auditioning the two alongside his bose revolve plus. How does the vifa helsinki sound?. It’s big, spacious, loud, relaxed and natural – totally satisfying and as good as anything i’ve heard in a bluetooth design. It’s still a one box speaker, of course, and that does limit, even if only by a little, the sense of hi-fidelity that can be achieved. The laws of physics cannot be broken.

Comments from buyers

“A fantastic speaker to own and enjoy
, Best in class
, It is one of my favorite portable speaker

Thank you amazon for delivery on time & putting on your site to purchase. It is one of my favorite portable speaker. So clear so free so nice sounding. Also the scandinavian woolen cloth in speaker is damn good. Even after some months use could find no deterioration (of course everything deteriorates in long use). The battery life is less but what matters is the sound quality without which any speaker is useless as per me. Hope vifa improves on the battery life. Thanks to vifa & also thanks to amazon.

By far and above the best bluetooth speaker i’ve ever heard. Wish the software for altering the eq for late night mode etc had more options and was a tad more stable. Still, it’s early days and it can only get better if the quality of the hardware is anything to go on. I started with the soundlink mini then bought the soundlink 3 and sent that back for a refund when i heard the helsinki. Not as bassy as the bose but in the right spot it has more of a punch. Fills a room and amazed when i put it in the garden. First spotted watch a german reviewing speakers on youtube. It’s not the most masculine speaker i’ve ever seen but close up it reeks of quality and passed the wife acceptance factor. She is happy to have it on the side in the kitchen.

This is the very best wireless speaker, by a mile, in the price bracket, or the next, or the next. Simply put, this is the most surprising small speaker i have ever heard (yes i did buy it – of course i did )once i’d heard this, and compared it with a few others, that i was interested in, i realised that there was no competitionthis has incredible sound quality and room filling spacious volume – this spaciousness is because they have six drivers in this unitif you’re using a phone or music player you can download the vifa app, to give you more control over your listening. There is a superb ‘late night’ mode which adds an extra warmth, to the sound. I’ve had denon, bose, b&o, h. And this beats them allamazing little speaker – that sounds like a much larger unit. A classy and subtle design that looks good too. It’s not cheap – but when you’ve heard one playing rock, classical, folk. Anything, in fact, you won’t hesitate to justify the expense.

Great, five star sound quality, which has been covered by other reviewers so i won’t rehash, but there a few negatives which may lead to me send it back, and as the negatives haven’t really been discussed in detail, here are a couple. Using the volume buttons on my iphone, the first four volume steps are enormous and easily take you close to 50% of full volume. After the first four, it calms down and give more sensible increments. The volume buttons on the speaker help a bit, halving the size of the jumps, but that means getting up and walking over. Late at night, when everyone else in the house is sleeping, i daren’t touch the volume buttons on the phone. Only really sounds impressive loud.

Well i had high hopes for this speaker given the huge number of glowing reviews out there. Let me start by saying i love my music and have had some equipment in the past and some decent bluetooth speakers also. I do love peering into the depths of my music and hearing the separation of instruments and getting the pure sound with good deep bass. Now i know bluetooth speakers can never deliver truly on this because bluetooth is itself a compression algo but still given the reviews i hoped to be seduced. My first impression was that this was smaller than i was expecting although reassuringly weighty. The sound to my ears is highly analytical, overly so. On certain tracks yes, it was fantastic, but only on vocals. I found the high end to sound un-naturally bright, not harsh but still very bright. The mids seemed lacking and while the bass was there you don’t feel it in your stomach as you do with some speakers, and yes i include the jbl xtreme. I also found the stereo speration to be limited and gace the speaker a boxy nature to the sound, it did not break the confines of its enclosure, i had expected more given the price and reviews.

Quality, room-filling sound that’s almost worth 5*. It has excellent, reliable bluetooth connectivity. It has connected to samsung mobile, a samsung tablet, acer chromebook and panasonic tv. Good solid connections with all. My only minor niggles stopping it getting the extra star are the battery life could be longer and it’s a little expensive.
