Sephia A11 Bluetooth Speaker, Very good value

Im using it constantly plugged in to a desktop and it provides loud and clear well balanced sound. I’ve not had any buzz or anything like that but when it’s on and muted it hisses away which is very distracting. You can obviously just hold down the power button and turn it off, but it’s not ideal. It feels quite heavy, looks and feels quality and well built. The rubber bits on the bottom are a really nice touch. This is definitely a home or work speaker. The size and weight make it a bit bulky for travelling but the build quality does mean it will survive bag life better than a lot of speakers. The leads aren’t the longest but not as stupidly short as my betron was. Basically anywhere right next to where it is plugged in is the wired range.

We needed to replace our last speaker and the fact this one was was designed in the uk was a big plus for us, to support british industry. The sound is excellent and it does what it claims to do, so far. The delivery time was excellent too. Based on the limited time we’ve had to use it, we would really recommend this speaker.

This speaker is brilliant and great value for money. I have had high-end speakers in the past, but this one is every bit as good.

I wanted it for audio books in the car connected to my mp3 and asked if it would have suitable volume but no-one knew. So, on the basis that it was so cheap i risked little i bought it. The audio books i have use non professional volunteers as readers and some of them are not so clear in their speech and others speak very quietly, so it was of no use there. But i can use it in my caravan where there is no road noise and i bought a more expensive one for the car which has proved very good.

I use this product in my truck at work. It gets very noisy in my cab, and i used an inferior bluetooth speaker for a long time. I couldn`t turn the volume up high enough to always hear clearly, above the road noise. But this device is brilliant. Not only does it have 2 high powered stereo speakers, it also has the all important usb port. This is crucial for me, as i have a memory stick and listen to audio book, so any bluetooth device had to have a usb port. This device has been bouncing around in my truck for a couple of weeks now, since new year, and it is fine. Sound level is brilliant, base notes are without distortion and volume is more than adequate. Build quality is excellent, very well built, heavy and sturdy construction. Up to now very happy with the purchase, considering getting another one for home use.

Arrived very quickly ,i am more than pleased,nice and compact for travel wich is why i purchased this,.

Cost me less than £10 and such a good sound. I can hear things in the music and vocals i never heard before. Once charged it lasts for ages. I took it to the beach this summer and it played just fine for over 3 hours. I normally have it plugged in to my lap top. But it can also charge and play sound at the same time. Ii may buy another one and a double outlet jack. But it is loud enough for my personal use.

I really can’t fault this speaker for what it cost. I am surprised at the clarity that it offers. The bass isn’t the deepest but still you get a decent sound and the build is quite solid too.

Easy to set up and the volume is loud.

Great item, with a good sound. My only bugbear is the massively loud beep it makes when switching on and then connecting, which i can’t seem to turn down. I use this in a busy office and the noise always generates a comment from the other side of the room.

It’s exactly what i was looking for, works for my s9+ and sound very well, battery last very long time 10+ hours ish. No regrets with this purchase.

As other reviewers have said, this bluetooth speaker is amazing value for money. The sound isn’t audiophile quality, too little bass and the highs are a bit harsh. However, the volume is good and it reproduces speech (such as audiobooks) and vocals well. It’s well beaten for sound quality by something like a jbl flip, which is a similar size, but the flip costs around 10x the price.Ideal for loaning out, or a convenient volume booster for a smartphone. The only thing i really don’t like is the finish – it’s that fake ‘rubberised’ plastic that doesn’t age/wear well in my experience. A straight gloss finish would be much better. I haven’t tried the micro-sd playback facility or used it as a speakerphone, but assuming they work as well as the bluetooth playback then it’s a great alternative to name-brand more expensive speakers.

Easy connection to my smart phone, fab sound, great value.

Excellent device for the cost. Good quality sound and easy to synch to my phone. I can definitely recommend this product.

A year ago i bought a single speaker unit for my ipad for £14. It was utterly disappointing, not much louder than the original volume on the ipad, but at least we could take it out in the garden. I saw this whilst trawling through looking for something with a bit more oomph, but at this price point i had to admit that i ‘hummed and harred’ before buying, even based on the 5 star reviews already out there. A stereo speaker for about the same price as two pints of beer was worth a try. This speakerset is an absolute bargain. For it’s size it’s a heavyish piece of kit, but that means the weight will all be in the speakers, and it shows. Lots of volume and lots of bass, with no distortion whatsoever. It pairs easily, and i’ve tested it out to 20m from the source before the bluetooth signal starts to break up slightly. To say i am happy with my purchase is an understatement, how sephia have produced speakers to this standard for the price paid absolutely defeats me. If you are like me, and do your initial buying research based on price, please don’t overlook these speakers, they are stunning value for money. I used to be an amazon top 100 reviewer but stopped reviewing when i became deluged with offers of free items if i left a review for them. I’ve bought this speakerset with my own money, and have come here to tell you what brilliant value they are without any inducement.

Only drawback is that the volume resets every time you power it off.

Great little speaker, good sound quality, easy to connect and decent battery life too. I’ve even used it as a shower speaker in the bathroom sealed in a sandwich bag.

Easy to set up, i just plugged it straight into my echo dot 2nd gen aux port with the cable provided and it works straight away, crank up the volume as it can handle alexa at volume 10. However, a word if caution, it has very little bass and does sound a bit tinny because of this and there is no equalizer or any settings to change this at all, adequate enough but not impressive. I cant comment on battery life as i have only had it a day.

Has worked perfectly since i opened it, can’t believe how good the sound quality and volume is for the price, absolutely brilliant. Would definitely recommend if you don’t want to shell out a lot of money.

Very well balanced sound with bass but not too much. Overall for the price is hard to beat with a lot of features.

Given the price i have no problem with the speaker. It seems well made with a good quality finish, the volume is impressive and sound quality is very good given its size. Having said that i do have identified a couple of failings in its design. It always comes on a near on full volume, if using in usb or card mode you get blasted before having chance to react. This combined with the fact the buttons a slow and clumsy to react do not make it user friendly. It may be fine outside but given its problems fails when you want to play it discreetly in the kitchen while the tv is on in the next room or doing breakfast. Unless of course you want to wake up the neighbours or the whole household.

Great sound for such a small unit, excellent bass that doesn’t distort and easy to connect. Will purchase another when needed for travels.

Bought this to use with my echo spot. It is slightly better than the built-in speaker, but only just. It’s really easy to connect to your device, but refused to re-link automatically. But there are better speakers out there.

Wow got this on a lightening deal for about £6. But honestly i’d be happy if i’d paid £10. Its a well made speaker with a good weight behind it. Doesn’t feel like a cheaply speaker. I have it in for use in a small room so its great for that.

One thought on “Sephia A11 Bluetooth Speaker, Very good value

  1. It is heavier than it looks for its size, it can be used on its own to play mp3s from full size usb stick or micro memory card, mine is 32gb. Feels solid and well made and has a nice clear sound, don’t expect to annoy the neighbours though. It has a decent volume for its size and does not sound tinny at all. I am well pleased and would recommend for your tablet, laptop or phone.

    I have a bose mini and you can’t compare the difference it’s nowhere near. However it’s only £8 and so serves a purpose. It’s natural state is quite tinny. However my phone has dolby digital equaliser and after a few adjustments sounds very good. Great for some background music. I will also say it’s good enough to take on holiday and i wouldn’t be upset if i lost it. After a bit of digging it seems betron is registered company and address.

    • I have loads of bluetooth speakers and i got this on lightning deal for under £7. I thought why not at that price. I didnt have any expectations. So when it arrived i was blown away by build and feel, it’s very tactile, covered in a black rubberised skin, buttons feel nice to the touch. The sound quality is very good and very well balanced. The front facing passive sub woofer pumps out a balanced bass to treble ratio but is not that bassy. The sound is bright but would have really benefitted with a second woofer on rear of unit. For the money this represents excellent value, sephia is a branch of a much bigger manufacturer and is probably an economy brand. Im pretty sure ive seen same speaker with different branding going for double the cost of this. We save money and still get good finish and build, balanced sound with very nice tops, mids and just enough bass for most, just not me.

    So far this has proved to be a cracking little device. The sound quality and volume is quite exceptional for such a tiny and low cost device.

      • Purchased to provide louder, clearer speakers for the satnav on our samsung tablet whilst travelling in our motorhome. Tested and seems to work well. Can’t really comment on bass or sound quality playing music as this wasn’t the priority for us. Reassuringly heavy and links to bluetooth easily. What more could you ask for at this price.

    Ok, i read all the reviews, but nobody had commented on the microphone. I wanted to use this as a speaker phone for my iphone when i’m on conferences calls during the day. Experience was far from good. While i could hear everyone fine and the speaker worked very well for the price, the microphone was awful and people just really struggled to hear anything – even when i was right in front of the unit. So all in all, good value as a mobile speaker, but forget it if you want to try (like me me) to use it as a speakerphone.

      • Sounds good, battery life is excellent and it’s sturdy, weighty and rubber coated. I have bought 2, one for home and one for work.
