Orbitsound Spaced360 Speaker – NFC – Great quality

I paid £58 for mine, and when reading reviews i noticed that this was originally priced at £300. The price on 11th sept 17 is now £49. Whathifi’s review on 18/03/15 has the speaker at two stars, citing issues with the 3 speaker design, ‘that’s the inherent flaw in having three drivers facing in three separate directions – the sound comes at you from different angles, bounces off surrounding objects, and reaches your ears at marginally different times. Add all those fractional delays up, and the resulting sound is a confused and disorganised sound that’s lost all sense of musical rhythm. ‘. And i agree with them, given how pricey this unit used to be. However, at the current price of £50-60, i think this unit is a bargain. The sound is decent enough and most people won’t care about any timing issues. The unit supports qualcomm® aptx™ hd audio, which isn’t found in many devices.

I saw the orbitsound spaced360 in another reputable store a while back and i was impressed, however i decided i could not justify £250 for them as i already have the bose soundlink ii. When i saw that these were on sale for £74. 99 i decided that it was worth getting them, they are truly excellent considering the price. I have had the speakers for two weeks now, and i am very pleased. They produce a clear and loud sound, and they even produce sounds that i have not noticed before in songs. I have compared them with the bose speakers, and the orbitsound makes the bose soundlink sound muffled. The orbitsound seems to outperform them most of the time, which is very impressive when you consider the price. Battery life seems to be very good, and they are fairly portable. The only negative thing i can think of is that the bluetooth range is not that great, and walking away from the speakers can cause issues, but this isn’t really that major. These are definitely worth it considering the price.

My 16yr old son is mad about his speakers the louder the better and he absolutely loves this. Chooses to use this one over his beats pill. Quality sound, solid and looks great. Here are the specifications for the Orbitsound Spaced360 Speaker – NFC:

Reviews from purchasers :

  • A good buy at £50-60
  • ok, but I was hoping for more.
  • Sound Quality

Bought this for my 23 year daughter as she’d asked for a bluetooth speaker for xmas. I already have one and as the sound is fantastic for such a good price it made sense to buy her the same.

Best bluetooth speaker on the market.

Hardly surprising that this is so good – it’s from orbitsoundtheir small sized, big sound tv soundbars are remarkable, so i expected this to be good and was not disappointed. Out m9 is brilliant and other family members have them. I spotted these spaced 360 units, when they were first released but was not using bluetooth for music then. 99 (why has the price suddenly shot up???) this is the bestt you can buy.

Bought for my friend as i already have this speaker and wanted to send her a present for a thank you. She is absolutely blown away by the quality of sound and the ease of use from her phone.

We’ve owned a spaced 360 for over a year and wanted to buy one as a gift for my brother in law. This is a great speaker, it looks good, the sound quality is fantastic and the battery life is excellent. The price is an absolute bargain too. I would highly rate and recommend this product without hesitation.

The orbitsound spaced 360 speaker is the perfect speaker for great sound as well as being portable and lightweight. It produces a much clearer sound than some of the high-end speakers that cost £££’s. The audio spectrum is fantastic; the bass levels are outstanding and not at all heavy. The midrange – upper mid range doesn’t make the sound ‘tinny’ like a lot of speakers do. A great idea for a christmas present next month.

Excellent cover for the orbit sound. Stops greasy finger marks and scratches. Doesn’t protect speaker end, but this wasn’t expected.

Excellent portable bluetooth speaker with superb sound in all directions, great build quality, easy to pair and use with easy charge stand and on board user buttons to control, this speaker has phenomenal sound quality and volume level is more than sufficient with no distortion. All in all a fantastic purchase and a fantastic supplier, great comma and delivered well packaged and on time from ei-retail.

Very good sound and a very unusual shape. Good bt connection and works well with various devices.

I had struggled to find a bluetooth speaker that promised rich, full sound until i came across the spaced360. It’s innovative design and great speakers make this a fantastic mobile option and i can fully recommend.

My son bought one from john lewis about 2 years ago and paid around £250. He loves it and has been delighted with not only the quality of sound but the battery life which is excellent. I have now purchsed another 2, one for myself and one for my other son. The customer service i have received from el-retail has been superb, they come highly recommended. This really is a great product at a fantastic price and easily as good as the more expensive bose models.

Very loud with no distortion. Fills the whole house with music. Only slight snag was positioning the sit in charger. Had to wiggle the speaker to get 3 red lights to show it’s charging.

Strange looking speaker, but works very well. The service from the vendor was excellent. Deduct 1 star because the battery charger feels a bit frail, and not as convenient as a plug in.

For the price, i don’t believe you can buy better. Ok, the bass may not match some of the better known brands, but you have to pay the inflated costs to get, in my opinion, only minimal improvement on this first class little belter. Even at high volumes, there is no distortion of sound. Unless you live in a school hall or plan to entertain the street via your own disco, this will cope with all your needs no matter what type of music you are into, from classical, country, rnb, rock, heavy metal, it does it all and does it extremely well. The fact that it looks really good also adds to the appeal, but as these are all about the sound, for us audiophiles just buy it because it sounds excellent. If you are thinking about buying one of the premium brands and spending over three times the price of this little beauty then think again and go for this.

After looking at prices and reviews of several portable bluetooth speakers i decided to purchase the spaced360 and i am delighted with my purchase. The speaker was delivered quickly and i was impressed with the quality of the packaging the speaker arrived in with logo branding throughout and the accessories like the charging unit neatly packed in the corners under concealed flaps. I wanted to try the speaker straight away so i placed it on top of charging unit which charges the speaker quickly without the need for any cables or wires to attach. Connecting the spaced360 to my iphone via bluetooth took seconds and i browsed my itunes library for a song which would showcase the speakers audio ability and i was blown away by the quality, clarity and bass sounds from this small compact portable speaker with a truly unique 360° surround sound. This is a great speaker which can be played anywhere in the house or garden and i always take it with me on holidays and nights away and anyone thinking of buying a portable speaker i would definitely recommend purchasing the orbitsound spaced360 from this seller.

Best price great vfm, completely recommended seller and item. Ok it’s a flawed design for most applications, bass isn’t generated in a normal way, special stereo is odd, bt is fussy sometimes but -if you pay little cash these speaker units are clean clear and sound great, just don’t look for the usual due to the 3 ways speaker and strange porting.

  1. This review is from : Orbitsound Spaced360 Speaker – NFC with aptX and Bluetooth for on-touch connection

    I agree with another reviewer – had i paid anywhere near the £250 original price it would have gone straight back. Probably reasonable for the amount i paid for it but it was supposed to become my “best” bluetooth because of the alleged excellent sound. How wrong i was – ignore the hype and judge by what you actually hear.

    • These are great speakers, we all have one now in the family.
  7. I want to give this item 5 stars. The sound quality out of it was excellent. It paired bluetooth no problems aptx. Loud enough to run a full outside party. But it just stopped working after 2 weeks. Was working perfectly turned it off and then about 2 hours later nothing. That being said the company took it back without any fuss and the service from them was top notch. It’s a shame because when it was working it was by far my favourite of my bluetooth speakers.

      • I’m not fully convinced the spaced360 is worth the 4. 8 out of 5 stars based on its current reviews. I have owned this now for about a month and delayed reviewing it until i had a fair chance to listen to it. So the sound is pretty decent, however i also have and anker a3143 which is 2 x 10 watt drivers. By comparison the spaced 360 according to its website is 3 x 20 watt drivers. After comparing both side by side i would go for the anker any day over the spaced360, at least while listening to in my kitchen at least. The sound is nice from the spaced260, however i do have issues with it. For the best sound i find it does not do so well while close to other object, like a wall for example. I also find the sound is reliability poor if the speaker is at a significant height difference from your head. If for example i leave it my table and i am standing up, the sound is just not great.

    Much as this product looks and feels high-end which is impressive at this price-point, the sound quality is where you get what you pay for. The bass is lacking and while playing various tracks it sounded like a range of frequencies were completely muted. I’m glad i returned this (my 360 arrived with a strange mould on the rubber speaker components) and opted in stead for the jam heavy metal – a far superior sounding speaker which i found for only 20 quid more elsewhere online.

    • If you’re looking for a decent portable speaker then look no further. This item was once sold with a price tag of over £200, at the current price £53 i felt i had to put a mask on to hit the purchase button. It looks the business and doesn’t disappoint with a superb sound that is everything you want it to be. Ok so it weighs about 1kg and doesn’t fit in your back pocket but then if i wanted that i would purchase a speaker for a £5. Charge time approx 2 hours and about 12 hours play time, really easy to use and good range. Has to be my bargain of the year and i’m only half way through it. I must confess i’d heard one of these before so when i saw the price – simple decision.

    To be honest had my eye on a different version until the other day,we where at a party and the hosts had what i now know is a spaced360 ,i was impressed how easy it was to connect and filled the garden with tunes in all directions with no quality lost. Next day did my research and decided this was the one for me,can’t fault it in doors, outside ,puts a lot of the expensive speakers to shame,would highly recommend it.

    I was out on the market looking sound quality and i found it. This is not a mono speaker and it isn’t a stereo speaker either – go figure. I mostly think of music as a stereo affair, so initially my ears weren’t quite ready for the spaced360. It’s noticeable as you rotate the unit that there is a main speaker and two “back” speakers. Clever sound engineering makes use of this arrangement to deliver an massive soundstage, there is sound coming out from everywhere. It’s not a bass heavy speaker but boy, the quality of the delivery is immense. The bass is tight and clear at any volume. The clarity and detail are incredible, i could swear i can hear sounds in songs i’d never heard before. It’s a truly different speaker with a heavy focus on sound delivery. Very good battery life but no usb charging so a bit sad for not being able to plug in a power bank for multi day trips.

      • Pretty good speaker for the price (lightning deal) the sound quality is noticeably better for high and mid tones than cheaper products which tend to amp up the bass sounds at the expense of everything else. Certainly would not pay the rrp and giving it 4 stars simply because it isn’t loud enough for me. I have similar sized speakers that are much louder but less detailed than this one.

    I bought these speakers rather than a full surround sound and i think they are a great product. You can put them anywhere in the room, due to the 3 speakers, and still hear the crisp sound wherever you stand. They are in no way boring and are great for parties as they bring a little extra vibe. I bought these when they were on offer so the price i paid was much less than their retail value which really made them a superb buy. When not on offer there may be speakers with better sound quality for the full price (sonos or bose maybe) but you won’t get that bit extra in terms of aesthetics, vibrancy and fun.

    • I absolutely love this speaker. Bought (after trying a few inferior products) so that we could have music in big kitchen and it exceeds our expectations. I needed to contact their (uk based) technical support centre about a charging question and they responded quickly with a solution.

      • I was looking for a decent speaker to use with a record player but i was on a budget. I really wanted a bose but there was no way i could afford it. This one came up on an early access deal and having read the reviews i took the plunge. The item looks a little strange but i actually like the design. It’s very easy to sync to bluetooth devices believe me i’m not technically minded and i found it easy). The sound from this was brilliant. It’s not as basey as a bose but it’s definitely enough for my taste. Really clear and there’s loads of settings you can try using your pc to give different sound effects. You can turn it up load and there’s no distortion.
