House of Marley Chant Mini BT – Portable Bluetooth Speaker, Five Stars

I like it very much, this little is very noise too 😁 the design is very nice am the sound very good.

Awesome little speaker, packs a great punch for it’s size. The build quality is top notch, it’s simple to use, charges quickly and lasts way longer than expected. The sound quality is far better than other comparably sized speakers i’ve used and definitely what you’d expect from this brand, not the cheapest option but worth every penny.

Was really surprised with how loud and the quality of the sound.

Comments from buyers

“Awesome little speaker
, Fantastic, great sounds from this piece of kit
, Better than expected.

This is the third speaker i’ve reviewed this year, and the best so far. It’s a gorgeous looking speaker – far better looking than most in this price range. The sound quality is pretty good, too – i’ve not noticed any distortion at louder volumes, even when playing drum’n’bass. It’s easy to use (a simplistic design) and easy to recharge (usb). A full charge, at present, has lasted over 5 hours and still going. As a bluetooth connection, it’s been fine when used around the house and garden with my iphone/imac… setting it up took no time at all. The headphone jack a nice but pointless addition, but it works fine. Definitely the best speaker i’ve tested in this price range, and happy to recommend it.

Great sound for a little speaker. Highly recommend, house of marley make some great products.

Although the marley connection is spurious, it at least means you have a product which looks good on the shelf and doesn’t feeling another piece of technology. The sound quality is good although it takes some messing about to get the right equaliser settings on the device.

For the price a fantastic bluetooth speaker. Easy to set up and easy to use.

First impressions were good; the speaker looked well packaged, simple and neat. Contents were the speaker, charging cable, instructions and a handy carabineer clip. First thing i noticed was how easy it was to operate, i didn’t even need to look at the instructions it was all pretty self explanatory, hold power button, press blue tooth button and connect to device such as mobile phone, it really was as easy as that. Simple is definitely the key with this speaker, 4 simple buttons, a denim sort of material with a bamboo wood top, it is a good size not too big and not too small like some other speakers i have used before. The surprise came when i put some music on, the quality was brilliant, clear and had good bass, and very loud for such a small speaker, you really can crank it up and it doesn’t lose any of its quality. I must also mention the battery; i haven’t once charged it since i took it out of the box and i have used it every day for the past 3 days and it is still going. I was very surprised with this neat little speaker, simple in looks, very simple in functionality, good battery life out of the box and the sound quality is very good, i would definitely recommend this product to anyone. If you’re looking for a handy bluetooth wireless speaker with a good size, easy to use and of good quality then this is for you. I have used it while cooking, cleaning, outside, in the car i would even use it if i had a party and guests round.

Can’t fault these for the price, easily fill a lounge or holiday apartment. Bluetooth never dropped out and battery lasted well. I bought these after buying the in ear headphones as i was so impressed with the quality.

Medium or less quality, not easy to find controllers, good range. Anyway, too pricey for what you get.

Really really good quality and fantastic price.

Great speaker, way more powerful than i anticipated, great sound quality. Only problem is no warning for low battery so if you use it a lot without charging you might suddenly find yourself sitting in awkward silence.

Absolutely brilliant speaker for its small wattage. Lovely design, as expected from house of marley. Definitely buy if you’re thinking of it.

Amazing sound from a little device, good quality and nice size for portability.

Bruh, this little thing is the best thing i have ever bought. Bruh the quality and the volume on this thing is insane. I definitely recommend this speaker.

So i received this speaker – it is approximately the size of a large coffee mug. I first noticed that the instructions were rudimentary, consisting of very small black and white diagrams with little text. Fortunately the thing was not difficult to figure out in order to get it working. Charging is via a micro-usb cable (supplied) – before first use the internal battery needed three hours of charge according to the accompanying diagrams. I thought fitting the micro-usb cable into the socket on the device was rather fiddly, as it didn’t seem to go in properly at first attempt. When it was charged up, however, the device was easy to use: press the on-button, then press the bluetooth button, and then i was able to connect to it using my smartphone. I tested it by placing the speaker on the far side of my living room whilst controlling the music from phone from my armchair, a distance of approximately 4 meters. It certainly worked: the sound was very clear for what is supposedly just a small speaker, though i doubt it would ever replace a decent hi-fi (or dedicated bluetooth sound-bar, for that matter). One thing i noticed is that the speaker itself did not appear to have any form of bluetooth security, i. There was no way of setting up a pin-code on the speaker to prevent anyone from ‘blue-jacking’ it. As it happened there was no-one else around so this was not an issue when i tested it. Finally: this device is marketed as having some sort of connection to bob marley, although from my point of view this was entirely superfluous, so i can’t really see the relevance myself.

This an easy to set up blu tooth speaker with an attractive bamboo rim. It paired with my other devices first time round and produces a clear sound. I used it in the bathroom with the shower running and the sound was excellent. I well made and attractive speaker which produces very good sound and is easy to carry around. It comes with a belt loop for carrying purposes.

Excellent sound and quality, compact and great looking. Bought for my son’s 18th birthday and he takes it everywhere.

What a great little speaker for under £30. Surprised how loud it was for the size.

Great mini speaker, i use it in my kitchen for when friends come around. So great i recommended it and have bought 3 more for people.

Great quality for such a small thing, perfect for outdoors with a small group of people. Solid bass sound as well (which i’ve found a lot of smaller speakers lack) and have had no trouble connecting to it from my laptop (windows) or iphone. Only thing is the start up and connecting noises (v loud no matter what volume you have it on) but i’ve found that’s a problem with most bluetooth speakers.

We have quite a few bluetooth speakers of all price ranges but this one really is setting the bar high. Aside from the fact that it does look really good, it really does pack loads of punch – the sound coming from a relatively small speaker is just excellent, even the bass sounds are better than expected although bear in mind this reduced somewhat due to its smaller size. It pairs easily and effortlessly and a full charge lasts a long time.

Nifty, light bluetooth speaker that can be carried (why??) on a small supplied carabineer. This gives a very good sound quality for such a light item. It is in the shape of a bongo drum clad in denim.

This is a lovely speaker, which produces a warm vibrant sound. I am using this to listen to audiobooks, it connected to my smartphone with no problems and works automatically with no issues. Everything is very intuitive and works well.

    Fantastic, great sounds from this piece of kit. I have used it on laptop and iphone with no problems and the sound has been great. Very easy to setup and fast to connect. Only one downside the sound it makes when connected and closing down is insanely loud so be aware if using late at night.

      • Bigger than i was expecting, both in size and sound. It travels along certain surfaces and can reverberate from the bass if not sat atop something solid, but that’s a minor issue that is easily resolved in my experience.

    • I have had many portable bluetooth speakers in this size and price range and none of them compare to this awesome little thing, i was blown away by the sound quality and volume of this speaker the first time i connected it. It’s also very sturdily built and just looks absolutely gorgeous, it is easily the best quality speaker i have ever bought by far and for the price.

  5. Nicely presented bluetooth speaker with a couple of well though out features. I like the rubber base which insulates the unit from vibrations you might get from the surface you place this on. No its not unique but neither is it universal. Secondly the carabiner attachment for making this more easily portable, rather more easily secured to bags, belts, hooks etc, i think very useful. As a unit it is quite tactile, pleasant in its use of materials. Sound, well nothing exceptional. I have tried it with nirvana, drum and bass, classical, progressive rock, classic rock, and pop and whereas there is a range the bass lacks punch and the overall sound compressed. And yes i did also play some bob marley on it too. If you are going to invoke reggae legends then pay attention to the bass. Still most of my listening with this will be things like youtube videos, podcasts and spoken word materials, for which this is up to the task.

    Bought this as a gift for my boyfriend and he loves it. Excellent sound but the battery life could be a bit better. He gets around 3 hours playback from a full charge. He has dropped it several times as he takes it to work and still works without issue so it is sturdy also.
