Hcman Bluetooth Speaker, Sounds great, battery life meh

Love this little speaker, it’s used in the shower and on the beach. It was so easy to set up even my technophobe parents managed it. I got it as a gift for them and they love it. Its portable and waterproof. Has a clasp to attach to belts too.

For the price you cant really complain. Made a good little speaker for outdoors (hiking, camping etc). Expecting room filling audio, then this is a must for most people to have available.

Superb quality sound & range & very sturdily made.

Comments from buyers

“this thing is fantastic! Exceeded expectations
, Love it! 10/10
, Good Speakers

Only arrived this morning, after ordering it 2 days ago so good service there. Well impressed by the quality of the sound and the general robust feel to the unit, certainly not lightweight and fragile. Bought primarily as a travel speaker in the first instance it will eventually be put on the boat to act as an external speaker to the fm/sw radio in the cabin. Yet to try the micro/sd set up but if all you want is a continous soundrack the it’s a great idea. Would have liked a jack plug so that my older acer mp3 player could be plugged in, but that’s a minor gripe.

Quality is not incredible but similar to the best speakers of similar size and price. Good enoughthe battery life is well ahead to the competitionit is extremely light but at same time feels solid and rugged. It has a convenient hook and holds vertical position on a table if needed. I have tried many speakers of similar size or a bit more expensive and nothing comes near to this: too short battery life, heavy, too big, problematic hook etc. The only thing i would change is increase or decreasing volume taping instead holding.

Works in the shower and good battery life and good sound.

At this price, this thing is fantastic. I was looking for something to slip in my pocket when i’m walking the dog or out hiking. This thing clips to my loop or a utility belt no problem. The dog had it clipped to her backpack the other morning. Never had a problem locating her in the brush. Much prefer listening with a speaker when i’m out and about same as when i’m in my car. I prefer to hear what’s going on in my surroundings and it’s possible to use something this small and not irritate others you may encounter. Best part: this is the only speaker this size i could find with music track control on the speaker. Never have to take out my phone.

Most shower speakers i’ve had in the past have only been just loud enough for the shower but this one is amazing. Its so lightweight and easy to use. I really like the fact it has a grip to use in the shower or everyday. Honestly i’m really impressed with it overall and for the price you can’t go wrong.

I liked the style of this bluetooth speaker so thought i’d give it a go. The speaker is easy to pair with an android device and works well in a shower with water splashing on it, we didn’t experience any issues. The speaker is easy to use and sound quality is impressive for such a small device. The bass on the speaker is not bad either i was quite surprised. The speaker is nice and compact and makes showers a little bit more entertaining.

This is a really nice speaker, feels good and is perfect for the shower. Connects via bluetooth really easily. Has a good level of base to the music it outputs.

This is actually the second time buying a bluetooth speaker but the first time when i bought a waterproof one. My wife spends a lot of time in the bathroom and now she have a waterproof speaker. Don’t use she’s cell anymore:)the sound is very great, the charge lasts a while. I like also to have a card slot, i’ve loaded a lot of music on the card:)the water and fog from the shower do not seem to affect it. It’s also very handy that the device charges with your adverage usb cable.

Much much better than the brand i had previously. Tip – if you use multiple bluetooth speakers as i do, when you move about the house i found that using my iphone, the speaker stays listening. This can drain the battery quicker.

Speaker works in all ways i would have liked except one flaw which i expect will lead to it breaking way before it should. The cover that sits over the usb charge and mini sd card slot constantly pops back off because the little plastic strip that keeps it attached is too big and bunches up like a spring (then pushing it back off 10 seconds after you close it) – so when this ‘waterproof’ speaker is used where there is water the power slot is going to get wet and no doubt break.

I bought this as it’s much safer using this on the bike than an earphone. I haven’t try it yet on how it is in receiving a call, there is a built in mic on this as well. On the micro sd, i tried it by using a 4 gb micro sd card with some files of mp3 music on it and it reads very quick at least fifteen folders/albums with all files having 320kbps. It reads the first folder that you first put in the micro sd card then followed by the second folder and so on. Once you turn it off and then turn it on it will play the the song that you were playing before it was off. On the bluetooth side, it connects on my bluetooth player straight away without a fuss, and within the distance of at least 5 metres it will stay connected, more than that the connection will start to break. Sound wise, in full volume, it is loud, very loud if you are in a standard size bathroom. Even in a double size bedroom it is loud. Bass wise, it is good, mids and highs are good as well, especially when it is placed on heavy surface like wood. Beware: the suction cup that is included in the package don’t used it.

Paired up to phone, sucked onto wall and they are loud with a decent amount of bass. To set up it is really easy just like most bluetooth devices (hold button for pair mode). Usb cable is included however a plug/adaptor isn’t, i just used my phone adaptor and it charged fine. With daily use for about 20mins each day it goes on for about two weeks.

Had this speaker for a week or so and it is rather impressive. The sound is loud with a decent amount of bass. Ideal to clip to a backpack, just in case. No problems using it in the shower and the provided suction cup has held it firmly in place since putting it up. There is a little distortion with a lot of bass, but sounds fine streaming radio stations and podcasts from my phone. For the money, you cannot go wrong.

Excellent sturdy product with good sound. The clip attracted me because the previous one (different model) broke when the suction pad failed on the tiles and it broke.

Bought this for my 12 year old nephew to use when he’s having a shower , he says its brilliant.

Originally purchased for my daughter to use at a party. Sound fills a room very well and this little speaker can definitely handle the base on music myself and my husband listen to. It even survived an inquisitive rottweiler taking it to his hiddy spot in the garden 👍🏻.

It’s exactly what i wanted, i wanted a speaker to use in my hot tub, i tested out how water-resistant it was by throwing it straight in and even submerging it a few dozen times (even pushing it to the bottom and holing it there for around 10 seconds a few times), it holds up very well i really like how when the airjrts im my hot tub are off it floats nicely on the surface or the water, but if water gets in the speaker it stops but if you blow and/or shake it out it carries on like a champ. I would recommend it as its a solid water resistant speaker and would buy it again.

Very loud, very durable, suction pad is very effective, and have no problems with it sticking to my shower wall. Comes with clip which is great for fastening to bags when walking around places and want to keep it safe. Fantastic product for the price and very straight forward to use. Comes with charge so can instantly use it.

This speaker is brilliant the sound quality is clear and loud and the bluetooth doesn’t loose signal unlike other bluetooth speakers i have used before. It works great with my samsung galaxy j5 phone and my sony mp3 player my daughter also has one of these speakers and uses it on her i phone 7. I would defiantly recommend this speaker.

I have bought the v1 outdoor waterproof speaker because my old photive waterproof speaker did not have a built-in slot for the minisd memory card. Looking for the best deal i have found this new product and the truth is that i am pleasantly surprised by the quality of the sound, it is very light, the battery lasts for a long time, it has adhesive bands in the back and you can stick it in the shower and a carbina hook to hang it. It has an ergonomic design and the quality of the materials is very good. Definitely very good purchase considering its price of only 16.

  1. This item stopped working after only a few months. It is a shame as it sounded really good and was practical. Unfortunately i am unable to return and get a replacement as the return “window” has closed. I don’t have any details of the supplier or the warranty period as i would like a replacement or a refund.

    • No this is not danish design, but yes, it is robust, delivers good sound and manages a humid environment. I am very satisfied and it even outlived the beautiful anker soundcore nano, that i bought at the same time. Thank you for great quality, price and delivery.

    • Bought to be an in shower speaker – it is very loud and you have to adjust the volume on your phone as there is no option to turn volume up or down from the speaker only change song. Don’t deter from buying this though it is a fantastic item.

    • I was pleased when i received this product as it looked rugged and with easy to use controls, however i found that the battery only lasted for 2 to 3 hours and i had an intermittent popping noise in the back ground. I returned it and as usual amazon issued a speedy refund.

    Heavier than expected and has a tendency to fall off the wall after a while so be careful where you mount it. Great sound and easy to set up.

    Apart from the battery life, i have to charge it every few hours at work as opposed to other speakers which last days with one charge, other than that i can’t fault it. Great product just make your near a power outlet.

    • Super lightweight and quality os better than i expected. As someone else pointed out, the tiny strap that holds the battery inout closed is too big and the lid pops open, which is not ideal if you want waterproof, however, i easily solved that by pulling it out and cutting the strap. The lid closes and seals well enough that i haven’t lost it yet (though if you plan on using it for sports, may not be the best suggestion). Overally really happy with the purchase.

    The sound of this small speaker is great and the bluetooth pairing was easy. However, the cover for the micro sd and charging port will not close properly and keeps ‘popping’ open. ; this makes it useless in the shower, which is why i bought it. Don’t know if this is a design flaw but it’s not a great first impression. But the sound quality is good so i’ll keep it; just in a dry environment.
