August MS515 5 W Wireless Stereo Speakers – Four Stars

Great build and sound quality for the price. Neat little speakers that are just right for enhancing the sound while i binge on box sets on amazon prime on my ipad. No technical ability required what so ever to set them up. Very pleased with my purchase.

These are fantastic i’ve bought my son some for university and he loves them. Superb sounds use with ipad iphone and tv.

I bought these for my wife to use with spotify on her phone. They are solidly built and fairly easy to set up and produce pretty good sound for small speakers.

Absolutely great buy, i have other bluetooth speaker but these connected so quickly. The sound is superb for the size of the speakers.

I’m always skeptical about bluetooth speakers. And i have to say i’m very impressed my these. I own a htc one m8 mobile phone, which is renowned for its audio output. At max volume it usually distorts any speaker i plug into it. These speakers kept perfect clarity and great bass response at highest level of volume. For the price point they will be very hard to beat. I’m very impressed and hope they stand the test of time. Intend to use them very frequently.

Fab speaker, bought the bluetooth transmitter and headphones too – great package.

  • Great sounding compact speakers
  • Wow! Small Speakers MASSIVE sound!
  • Worth every penny!

Simple design but very powerful. Wired them up to connect and paired with iphone and was already to go. The sound quality is excellent with deep base surprising from the sizei received this item free from a review site for my honest review.

  i’ve had several items over the months from august and i’ve been very pleased with what i’ve experienced with them so far. I needed a soundbar/speaker solution for my tv since i’ve wall mounted it and was looking to these to fulfil that role. Unfortunately due to the construct of the speaker, they are not really suitable in the way i was hoping they would be. Not their fault, they just aren’t made for what i wanted to do with them. I’m reviewing then as desk speakers. Most of my points of view are shown in the video but here’s a few basic points of summary. They are lovely looking speakers and much more stylish than most of the bluetooth speakers i have which mainly tend to be more rugged than pretty. They come with a good selection of cables to add versatility to their placement. I decided eventually to place one either side of the bed and the 3mtr joining cable was more than long enough to accommodate that. Sound-wise they are not bad, with a pretty well rounded sound and the presence of bass is certainly there but two things slightly marred that for me.

Brilliant speakers sound quality is amazing that’s why i bought a second pair and good value for money and easy to set up.

These speakers are better than what i was expecting, i use them for my mobile phone and connect through wifi, this set of speakers has amazing bass as well. I am extremely impressed and happy with this product. It came in great packaging and shipped quickly. I received this product for free in return for an unbiased and honest review.

 inside the box are the usb charging cable, one wire to connect speakers to the computer (coloured black), two cables to connect the speakers together, the two speakers and an instruction manual. The item comes well packaged and the instructions are easy to read though the pictures of the speakers are too monotone that you can’t see what the instructions are pointing to. Setting up the speakers will take you roughly three to four minutes to set up. The sound from the speakers is good quality and clear. There’s a function on the main speaker (multi function button), which allows you to switch between music with the original playing device. Connecting the device to the phone or the computer was easy, the bluetooth was easily detected by both devices and i was playing music straight away. The two speakers cannot work independently, they need to be connected together. This was the only downside i could find. I found the item to be good quality make and great sound with ease of use. These are great pair of bluetooth speakers.

Very good speakers,working well,small and compact well done to august a+++.

I got these speakers as the speakers on my tv aren’t loud enough and sound very tinny. Not having the money to buy a sound bar and the other speakers that connect i looked through and found these two beauties. . Just within my budget i thought i’d give them a go. They magically take over as the tv speakers and are plugged in to the usb on the back (to charge them) and the headphone socket. The difference that they have made are 100% better. I can hear the everything that i’m supposed to once again, the treble and bass are particular impressive. Cannot fault them and would recommend them highly.

Speakers arrived in good time. Its nice to have stereo again. I have a jbl bluetooth speaker and that’s good too, but to get the stereo effect makes listening much more pleasurable.

Excellent speakers for the money, can’t fault them at all.

I was delighted with these speakers. Superb quality and very prompt delivery.

I use this pair in my camper van and love them so much have ordered another set for in the house.

Music can inspire, soothe and lift your mood if it sounds great.

Good sound quality,look smart and stylish and have some weight to them so feel good quality. Bluetooth is easy to connect too. Cant go wrong for the price. I received this item at a discount in exchange for a review.

They do the job they are supposed to do.

The battery is really long lasting and they are so loud – can’t wait for our beach party now. It’ll be great and i know that all my friends are going to want to buy these.They look super snazzy on my bedside table too.

Surprisingly full bodied sound – enough (though not a lot) of bass, clear mids and highs. Very useful to be able to separate them therefore create wider soundstage. I am using them mostly for watching video and they perform above my expectations. Battery life is very very good.

Solid little speakers for the money. These are being used in the garden (covered area) and they sound great. No need to spend a lot of money when these do the job. There are a lot of wires when charging as well but these are out of sight on a raised shelf. Glad i went with the other positive reviews. The sound will not blow you away in terms of volume but it is clear and still loud enough to be heard anywhere in the garden. Update approx 1 month later. I have been forced to return these speakers. The issue is the buzzing when they are plugged in to charge.

Have a couple of single bluetooth speakers (both of which i bought on the recommendations i read on amazon), and found them to be fabulous but just wanted more of a stereo sound in my study so purchased these. Great price, sturdy speakers, look good and sound amazing. What more can you ask for the money. Certainly wouldn’t bother to buy any of the ‘top of the’ range speakers as these do the job and then some. I use mine with my ipad and my samsung galaxy note with no problems at all.

Surrounded by stereo sound, movies are brought to life putting you in the action on TV.

Great item many thanks, these are fantastic, my laptop volume was pitiful, now i got good volume and the sound quality is very decent too.

As a dj and producer, i wasn’t expecting great things out of these little speakers, but i had a £10 off voucher for them and an itchy trigger finger. So i bought them on an impulse. To keep it simple, there’s not a huge amount of bass on these things, but what they do very well is fill a space with clear, crisp sound. Tried them out in the back garden and they were fantastic. For the price, these are top notch for the beach, garden, bedroom or where-ever you need portable music. Very please with this impulse buy and recommending them to all and sundry.

I already have these in black to go with my black tv in the spare room but needed some in white for my bedroom. These are smart, tidy, have decent length cables and look good either side of the freesat box. The only downside in the bedroom are the bright blue light lights on them which are bright enough to illuminate the room but easily solved with a bit of white tape (and black on the others).

Great and easy to set up considering their price. Great sound and they’re small and good looking.

Got these on the prime day deal to add a bit of depth to the tv sound for a bedroom. The units themselves are very compact but seem well made and finished, and do sound pretty good for the price with both tv/movies and music. Some types of music cause the speakers to ‘over reach’ but this really isn’t a negative in terms of the value, and they are really quite good with movies via my little dac. Pros:lookssound for moviesprice (prime deal)cons:fiddly to setupshort usb cablevolume control on unit is poor, would have been much better as a simple volume knobon/off switches stiff.

This is the 2nd set i’ve bought and extremely pleased with these powerful little speakers and the 5 star applies to these, unfortunately the first set i bought sat in my drawer for about a year as i couldn’t get them up and running, so i considered myself a bit of an idiot until a young lad with a lot more knowledge than me and between us discovered that i had a duff speaker. These speakers hardly took any time at all to get up and running. Just a note when not using, turn off, as they need charging a lot more, obviously.

I was hopeful that with the reviews i had read, i would be pleased with the quality and sound quality of these little speakers. I have only had them a few days, and i am yet to see if they are durable and how the battery life is, but the sound quality is very good. Because of the weight of them, they can really handle base, but also with more meditative, ambient music the sound is really clear. I have bought them for my yoga classes and they are compact, but will offer a really good level of sound. I am very pleased with these little speakers, well worth the money (so far).

Bring the difference between music from mobile and true stereo sound wherever you go.

The build of these speakers is superb, feels and looks very high quality built with a nice matt black finish which is pleasant to feel as well. The speakers are definitely not made of some cheap plastic like other cheap bluetooth speakers. The speakers are very easy to use, you just pick what link cable you want either the short or the long one and you connect them up then you have an option to either play music through bluetooth or aux (sadly optical isnt an option). The speakers are loud and very cleari highly recommend these speakers but if they had an optical input that would be amazingi purchased this product at a promotional discount to test and give my honest opinion on it.

Great little set of speakersthe speakers are tiny but have a nice weight to them, they come in box that it very well laid out so if you chose to use the box to keep them from getting damaged when taking the speakers out with you everything will fit back in very easy, they also come with different size leads which is very handy, i use the short lead in my tv room and i’v set up the long lead in my bedroom so i can just unplug the speakers in one room and plug them straight back in without having to drag wires with me. They are a lot louder than what you would expect from such little speakers. The bass it ok but what else would you expect from such tiny speakers. We watch a film with the speakers plugged in to the tv and the sound wasn’t that bad, they definitely sounded better than the built in tv speakersi also tried them plugged in to the tv when england was playing and to be honest the tv speakers sounded a lot better than these, so on films they sounded great but for footy not so greatthe bluetooth works well, connect without any problems, i say i can get about 8m away before the sound start to break up but as soon as you walk back in range everything works perfectly. Overall i think you would be hard pushed trying to get better speakers for the same price as these, worth every penny.

Speakers do what i wanted them for and they are worth the money i paid.

Very compact, great sound and all round loveliness. My only issue was that the cables weren’t labelled and are identical in all but length so it took a little trial and error to work out which was which. So far i have absolutely no complaints.

Had some little speakers before but they didn’t have such power and deep bass like these. They have a nice design, so they fit to almost any style and can blend with the furniture. The cables are long, so you can place them far from each other and enjoy the stereo sound. They are very loud, also for big rooms. Not to exaggerate, but they can easily work as mini cinema set as well. Beyond easy to connect them with any device, old or new. If only there was an option to connect 4 of those, i’d definitely buy another pair.

Delivered exactly as described. The speakers were connected to my devices in a very straight forward manner and provide the quality of sound i was seeking.

Grab your audience’s attention with clear crisp audio to support your professional presentation.

Good speakers but not a lot of bass but you cant expect a lot from speakers of this size,but a good update for laptops ipads etc. One thing i find irritating is fiddly switches at the back.

Nice little speakers, which i bought to accompany a small samsung tv i recently purchased. Sound is more than adequate for a bedroom tv with enough bass to make action films worthwhile. Big improvement over internal tv speakers. They are also very neat and in white, don stand out at all (important for my wife). They are powered via a usb, and since the tv has a spare powered usb port, it works fine. 5mm cable to hook the speakers up to the headphone socket, which worked perfectly. Butwhen we turned the tv to go to sleep, the speakers would start to emit a surprising loud buzzing noise, which could only be stopped by switching each of the speakers off individually using the fiddly like stitch on the back of each. Really annoying, when all you want to do is to turn over and go to sleep, when instead you have to get out of bed, often in darkness, and do battle with the silly things. I have seen this as common complain about the speakers.

August Portable Wireless Bluetooth Stereo Speakers MS515 – Two Unit Stereo Set, My friend and I saw a more expensive brand in

This set of stereo speakers performs much better than anticipated. They come with two connection leads, one much longer than the other, to aid stereo separation. Whether connected via bluetooth or wired, the bass is good for the size, and the mids and treble are very pleasing too. I am very fussy about audio and i am extremely happy with this set. Indeed, august are also the people behind the ep650 headphones, which are also brilliant and very affordable. Do not hesitate in choosing this set of speakers.

Very impressed by the sound produced by these excellent little speakers. As many have said, the volume and clarity is surprising given the size and price and the use of an equaliser app can add a bit more bass to the sound, if required. Build quality seems excellent and battery life easily matches the 15 hours quoted. All in all, i’m very happy and have ordered more for family members, who were more than impressed when i demoed mine.

I bought these back in early 2016 at a bargain price of £27. They are used in the kitchen and connect quickly and easily to whichever tablet or phone i am using. They really do push out the sound and at good quality for their size. I am now using them with an amazon echo dot as well and alexa finds them easily. All in all they are great speakers and are probably still good value at the current higher price.

Comments from buyers

“Don’t Look Any Further!
, Great little speakers with surprisingly good audio
, Unbelievably good quality bargain speakers.

Simple to use via bluetooth or can connect using headphone/speaker socket.

Charging and set up is easy. Paired with 2 separate phones and works well with both. Good sound quality and long cable allows for good separation.

These are really good little speakers. I only bought them because i had bought a daffodil folding keyboard for my phone and got a £10 off voucher for these. Impressed with the keyboard and seeing how cheap these were i bought them even though i have no need for them whatsoever. I wasn’t expecting much but was hopeful after the kyboard. They are fairly small but with a solid feel and weight, and look good with black nice tactile black plastic with some nice finishing and rubber strips on the bottom. Well packaged, feel premium. They come with some nice rubberised flat cables. One is a dual micro usb, gave them a charge with the special dual usb micro cable and once done connected them together via the red sockets on the back for stereo. The master one will work on it’s own as a decent sounding standalone, but for proper stereo you connect them together. Don’t make the mistake i did and use the aux input cable you get with them to try and connect the two speakers as the connecting cables are different and are colour coded with red collars to identify them.

Nice, chunky little speakers. Good clear sound, but not as much base as might be hoped, but they are small. Would prefer speakers without glowing lights and a charge cable that went from one speaker to the other and not a separate cable from the source to each would be a lot less cable mess. At the price i paid however, should not be making any negative comments.

I was so impressed with these speakers (ms515) that i purchased a second pair. The original pair are in our garden room and make listening to music or the radio an absolute blast. The second set are connected to my imac and are pleasing me no end. I am currently being pulled towards purchasing a pair of totally wireless bluetooth speakers from daffodil i. No connecting cable between the speakers.

My friend and i saw a more expensive brand in america, she bought hers i just thought i could get a cheaper brand and have it delivered in the uk and thats what i did. These speakers are so loud it covers my two bed flat and its much cheaper than any fancy brand speakers.

The august ms515 portable bluetooth 2-speaker system is a seriously impressive unit. It pairs easily with smartphone, tablet, i-pod and computerand is very user friendly. The sound quality is excellent and certainly punches above its weight for such a compact item. At the price point it is probably unbeatable.

Small and powerful enough for use when gaming, listening to tv, videos etc. Don’t expect your full on music surround sound but they are easy to set up and they look good.

These are first-rate quality for the price. Our 7 year old tv set had developed crackly speakers especially at bass. . Installing these portable ones has resolved that and therefore extended the life of the set itself. A highly cost-effective solution for us.

Excellent speakers, great build quality and very, very good sound. If i have to be honest the adx speaker i bought my daughter last christmas has slightly better treble, but the sound quality of these is still up there at almost half the price. To answer a question here you can play the master speaker on it’s own via bluetooth without connecting the cable and second speaker.

Bought these for my son at uni. Tried them first with a bit of led zep. I’m deaf in one ear but they still sounded very good. They have a quality feel about them. Asking for a pair myself for my birthday.

I love these speakers, crystal clear and good volume and base, easy to use, great value, solid dough, not plenty cheapness.

If you like stereo music then they are good for the price. However first pair soon developed a fault with the main speaker not working. Second pair arrived next day. Supplied with 2 separate length connection cables depending on how far you want them placed apart. Also has a handy charger cable allowing both speakers to charge at the same time. There is also an auxiliary cable so you can plug into the mike socket on the tv etc. Good sound quality for size.

These were a great surprise. Excellent sound quality and very solid build these speakers immediately linked to my ipad for great stereo listening in my study. I’d never heard of the august brand before and i was sceptical when i bought them, but not any more.

Brilliant they do exactly what it says on the tin. Not incredibly loud but certainly loud enough; so portable which makes them easy to transfer from gadget to gadget room to room; very cute, smart looking piece of kit; so simple to set very affordable.

I got these originally to put either side of my bed so that i can play my noise app (sleepo) at night to block out the howling kids and screaming dogs 🙂 for that it works extremely well. I was quite surprised and pleased to find that the speakers also play music very well, with a good bass and excellent audio overall. Playing radio caroline through them (from the phone app) sounds really good. The batteries seem to last quite a while and don’t take too long to recharge. The only (very) slight niggle is that although the connecting lead is more than long enough to place the speakers either side of my double bed, the charging lead (a single usb2 to twin mini-usb) isn’t, so one of the speakers has to be moved over to the other one for charging. I could probably sort this out with either longer leads or by providing a separate charger for one of them, but it is not enough of a nuisance to bother with.

These are a complete surprise and the quality is brilliant. So pleased i purchased them.

I don’t write many reviews, but had to for these; these speakers are amazing. They look so sleek and stylish, fantastically well made. I love that there’s two; a nice symmetry, but also fantastic sound. I’ve been using them for about a fortnight and am amazed at the sound quality from such little speakers. I want to buy everyone them for christmas. I paid £25 ish for them delivered, with a code off the manufacturers facebook page. Best value of anything i’ve purchased in a long time.

They do a great job in all around, but out of the box they sounded pretty flat (in my case) so i figured i needed equalzing/dsp (digital signal processing) to get them to their maximum potential, it’s built in most devices that your’e going to use the speakers with so its not going to be a problem. After i tweaked the speakers with dsp on my smartphone, mainly to enhance to bass and midrange, they output amazing, well balanced sound and they can get pretty loud too, without any distortion. Battery life so far is great using the aux wired solution. I used them with my tv, with the speakers set to around 50% volume, i did not turn them off and they lasted almost 2 days. Of course they were not active 48 hours, but i’d say they were active around 17 hours+ and on stand-by around 31 hours. I havent tested them with bluetooth from full to flat battery yet, so i cant say for sure how good they are there, but based on how long they last with aux, and knowing it requires a little more juice to run them with bluetooth, it wouldn’t surprise me if they live up to the 15 hour specification, or even exceed it. Great small speakers for all around use, i highly recommend them.

I bought these speakers for a christmas present this year. They are to be used with a bluetooth mp3 player. We have been using a bluetooth sound bar which is a good sound. You dont get many speakers as two that are bluetooth, so i thought i would try them before giving at christmas and then bang what a fantasic sound for such small speakers, great base and treble. There was no problem pairing at all,they look cool aswell. I would highly recommend them to anyone buying them.

I was a bit skeptical at first if they would be powerful. But i was pleasently surprised at the bass power and clarity through the jack extention cable, the bluetooth connection is seamless too. However if your thinking this has seperate bluetooth connectivity. The main speaker is connected via another jack cable into the second which gives you the 2. But like i said the sound quality trumps the misunderstanding that both speakers will be individually bluetooth enabled.

August DAB+ Clock Radio Bluetooth Speaker MB400 – Wake to your Favourite DAB, FM or MP3 Music and Bring it with You – Portable Powered by C Cells (not included) : Feature-rich, doesn’t sound very good

The august has almost everything i wanted from a bed side radio alarm clock at a good price: 2 alarms, dab+, bluetooth speakers, a usb charge point, a dimmable display with plenty of place for information and the option to be woken up by the radio, a buzzer or my own mp3 tracks from an sd card or a usb stick. Ideally, the device could have been a bit smaller and powered via a usb cable, rather than taking up a 240v socket by yet another unnecessary power adapter. Yes, you guessed correctly, the power adapter reduces the voltage down to 5v = usb voltage. The mind boggles, hence 1 star deducted.

This is the second unit i have bought, since the sound quality is excellent and i have been able to secure them at a good price (this radio/speaker is available elsewhere for up to £70). I have one unit as a bedroom alarm clock and radio, and one as a radio in my bathroom- how nice to shower to decent sound. The one drawback is that everything is geared towards inputs- i. Playing things through the speaker, such ad your mobile phonest, usb stick, or mp3 player. Did no-one think it might be a good idea to have a headphone socket??. Sometimes it’s imperative to be able to listen to music without disturbing other people. Nevertheless, if you are looking for a small, robust, easy to use radio with good clear sound, i can recommend this.

Small & compact replacement for bulky mini hi-fi in kitchen. Very happy with the sound & bluetooth functionality for streaming spotify from my phone. My reason for awarding four stars – i think the designers missed out here by not having a remote control for the unit, a little inconvenient, but i knew this before i made the purchase. Would have been a five star review if it came with a remote.

This is a great bedside clock radio,it has all of the features one could expect a product at this price range to have, excellent signal, i don’t even need to pin up the arial. My only grumble is that it’s not immediately obvious how to do things like set alarms and set the time, to set an alarm you need to hold the snooze/dim button until alarm 1 alarm 2 etc shows on the display, once you figure this out from the well written ,clear instructions its easy. However they don’t tell you that the radio needs to be off to do this. The volume knob is very sensitive allowing you to choose any volume level that the radio is capable of, unlike my last radio that had up and down buttons that meant i could only select certain levels. During the initial scan it found 40+ stations, all of which were of a reasonable quality.

  • An alarm clock that forgets the days of the week in odd numbered years, but only in August!
  • The August has almost everything but cannot be charged via a USB able
  • Good sound, easy to use, but why no headphone socket?

August DAB+ Clock Radio Bluetooth Speaker MB400 – Wake to your Favourite DAB, FM or MP3 Music and Bring it with You – Portable Powered by C Cells (not included)

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • WAKE UP TO YOUR FAVOURITE STATION – The MB400 clock radio allows you to choose your favourite station on FM or DAB to wake up to
  • STREAM YOUR MOBILE MUSIC – Connect your mobile phone via Wireless Bluetooth and enjoy high quality sound for your music, podcasts and internet radio
  • PLAY MP3 FILES FROM USB AND SD CARD – Listen to all your digital music, just save from your PC to USB and play it anywhere
  • TAKE DAB RADIO WITH YOU – Powered by mains or C-Type Battery, the MB400 can be used anywhere from a site radio to a bedside alarm clock
  • FUTURE PROOF DAB AND DAB+ TUNER – With both DAB and DAB+ covered, you don’t have to worry about the airwaves going quiet through planned upgrades to DAB broadcasting

Jusy what i need down my allotment. Easy to follow instructions and it picks up 40 dab stations and stores them easily. If had to give one negative that would be the antenna not being the pull up metal type insted its a wire. . Although it does have a handy loop to pin it up in my shed. It pairs easy with my phone so i can use my spotify and pod casts. Its a neat tidy radio thats brilliant for home, garden and shed.

We now have two of these lovely little radios. The red one matches our camper and it comes away on holiday with us. The blue one goes well in our bedroom. I like that it can be powered by mains or battery. I like the sleep mode – you can choose how long you want it to play. I like that the alarm starts quiet quietly and then increases in sound to your chosen volume. The sound quality is fine – not at all tinny. The size is neat and fits in the spaces that we have available.

Sound is fine, and you can use a usb stick to have your own music to wake up. The metadata or filenames are not displayed on the screen though (it only displays rds/digital radio information), and you can only access your music in sequence and try to remember the number. The alarm clock has an everyday/weekdays only/weekends only switch which is convenient. The main problem is with the power : if you unplug the power cord from the wall socket, or if there’s a power outage, the radio will stop and lose all its settings even if you have batteries.Batteries wil only rescue the radio if you unplug the power cord from the radio itself first — not very helpful for power outages.

First radio i have bought for nearly 30 years so i was impressed how far they have moved on, the sound of the mb400 is first class t the point of now being the best sound/music system i own now. I haven’t got my head around all the settings as yet but i am sure that will come with a bit more time. One comment would be it maybe better to include the instructions in the language where it’s being sold, e. G uk sheet of instructions for the uk market and then they could be written in larger print for people who have vision impairment (like me). Packaging was about right although maybe a plain wrapper of some sort would improve the security when being delivered. A well made radio at a fair price and now a valuable asset. Btw i received a £10 off offer (instead of the usual £5 one) for a set of speakers which was really useful, thank you.

Solid unit that is well built. The nfc chip is great for pairing with my lg nexus 5 phone. Sound quality is very good at typical volumes but starts to struggle when cranked up. In my kitchen, it’s only a problem if the dishwasher is on. Controls are not all that intuitive but the instructions are more than adequate to get it tuned in and working. Nice little touch is the ability to dim the display – ideal if used as an alarm clock next to the bed.

I bought this to use on batteries as for bathroom & didn’t want to have to remember to recharge it. Lasted just a few days on cs even with little actual use. It sounds good & looks good but if you want one to use on batteries look elsewhere.

Excellent little radio for the price – beautiful sound, works so easily using the bluetooth, the usb the sleep timers etc- and i love the colour. I havent tried the aux yet, and have only used it with electricity so unsure how long batteries would last if needed. Cannot recommend this little radio enough.

I can’t be alone in struggling to find a decent ‘non retro’ looking dab radio / alarm clock right?to my view, this is well styled, is fully featured and sounds very reasonable for its size. The only reason it does not get 4 stars is the unintuitive user interface – why design in a control that was clearly designed for up / down / left /right / ok functionality and use it for something completely different?it is also disappointing that it only has a single volume control rather than a separate per function – e. Dab radio broadcast levels are different to fm, which are different again to a bluetooth deviceto end on a positive note, it was very pleasant to find the alarm have the option of being only active on weekdays (other options are every day or weekends), though of course a full schedule would have been even better (for those that don’t work a regular monday to friday schedule).

This does the job – it connects to bluetooth, and other devices, it allows you to set two alarms, and it has a sleep function. However, it feels like a cheap and poorly designed radio. The clicking sound when you press the buttons is so loud it wakes the baby up, and the features aren’t intuitive – e. You can switch the backlight off when the radio is playing, but not when it’s switched off. It takes a lot of brainpower to memorise how to use the various features. Also, the bluetooth stays connected and looking for signals all night – so woke baby up (again) having listened to bluetooth going to sleep, because i tried to watch a video on my phone the next morning. Most speakers will time out after a few minutes of receiving no signal.

Dab signal can be easily interfered with by other electronic devices. The most limiting factor, however, is that you can switch the led display off when playing the radio but at night when you turn the radio off for a bit of sleep, even on the dimmest setting the case of the radio itself glows from the light within and your eyeballs are welded to the back of your skull as the entire room is bathed in an eldritch glow. I replaced my old clock/radio with this one as the low-pitched hum it emitted used to disturb my sleep but there is no chance of sleep with this bedside searchlight. Have to use it in the kitchen now and keep searching for something both quiet and dull.

This stylish, retro, funky radio arrived today and it is brilliant and fantastic it looks good and sounds good. The bluetooth connection with my iphone is superb and my mp3 player connects to the usb socket. Sd card slot provides additional favourite music storage. Contrary to lesser reviews it is easy to set up and use, those who beg to differ have not looked at it properly. It really is a little gem, if you are considering a purchase then go ahead, you’ll be glad you did.

What a fantastic sound from this dab radio. We used it as a speaker for spotify on christmas morning and have hardly turned it off since. It’s very lightweight and easy enough for my 9-year-old to set and use.

This is a great little radio/clock/speaker. I needed a modern replacement for the micro system in my kitchen one that would play music but enable me to listen to radio as well. This is a smart, easy on the eye radio and has a whole lot of functions more than i need – i’m not complaining. It also takes a usb, and has bluetooth. Easy to set up, easy to use.

I had high hopes for this purchase. It’s colorful and i like that. But the sound quality is boomy and comes off sounding cheap. It’s got plenty of features that i needed including bluetooth connectivity and dab radio. The antenna is an unattractive spindly long wire that needs to be tucked away behind things. Maybe a great kitchen or workshop radio, but if you’re looking for fidelity audio this is not the one for you.

Surprisingly well made and sounds good. You’ll need to use the manual as the controls are not intuitive but once you have found your way around it has a kind of logic to it that is quick to get the hang of. Should have 5 stars but a few things could be better – if you use an sd card it sticks out at the back and is vulnerable, i wish there was a version with built in rechargeable battery, the battery cover doesn’t fit easily and doesn’t lie snug and there’s the not totally intuitive thing. After all that it’s great value for money, i’ll probably buy another for use in the workshop.

And here why-1) wakes me up mon – fri via it’s alarm to the sound of the radio. But then leaves me alone come the weekend (not like my old one. That thing would blare out rubbish pop tunes whether i was hung over, really wanting a sleep in or not wanting to face the world. We had more than one falling out)2) it’s cute. Do not underestimate the level of cuteness this radio brings. Sometimes i just sit and look in awe of this little radio. No worries just press the dab radio & it’s done. Easy peasy4) it has fancy functions- you can do bluetooth via your phone or fill up a sd card with music. Sounds cool, personally i haven’t a clue how to do those things. Still my old radio alarm clock did not do these things.

Before i had a robertson radio that was not dab. It couldn’t pick up virtually any station for me. So i returned it and got this beauty. It works very well – picks up radio 4, lbc, radio 2 (my big channels). The buttons are plastic, which for the price might be a little offputting, but i’d rather have decent radio. The clock isn’t massive, but you get used to it. I value having a working radio more. Also, the clock dims if you don’t press anything for 15 or so minutes. Sometimes i find it a little too dim.

Works well in my location, albeit i need to move it a bit to get the station signal fixed. Dropping it to 4 stars is because it isn’t the easiest to set up if your not techie minded. Another point to note is when playing the tracks on your usb stick it doesn’t display the title of the track, so looking for a particular one is only possible if you print out your track list first. It has a nice tone to it though.

August DAB+ Clock Radio Bluetooth Speaker MB400 – Wake to your Favourite DAB, FM or MP3 Music and Bring it with You – Portable Powered by C Cells (not included) – Good little all rounder

Lots of features for the price. I was specifically after these features:bluetoothbattery powered optionfront facing lcddabaux ini actually struggled to find one that had all of these features at the time. I’ve had this for 3 years now. Never struggled to get a signal – in fact i hardly uncoil the antenna wire at the back at all and get a good dab signal. I use it mainly for dab and bluetooth from my mobile. Sound quality is pretty good for something this size. It doesn’t last long on batteries but sadly no dab radios do :(the only issue i have with it is, despite owning it for 3 years i still regularly turn it off by accident because the power button and the ok button are in opposite positions to where i’d expect them. (the on/off button is in the middle of the direction pad, weird).

Never leave reviews but couldn’t not. Think little radio cost £40, and i’m over the moon. Absolutely one of the best cheap things i’ve ever boughtit has sd slot, dab, bluetooth, usb, alarm clock chuffed to bits, and i thought it would sound like a bibble in a can but it’s actually pretty good.

Excellent little radio for the price – beautiful sound, works so easily using the bluetooth, the usb the sleep timers etc- and i love the colour. I havent tried the aux yet, and have only used it with electricity so unsure how long batteries would last if needed. Cannot recommend this little radio enough. Here are the specifications for the August DAB+ Clock Radio Bluetooth Speaker MB400 – Wake to your Favourite DAB, FM or MP3 Music and Bring it with You – Portable Powered by C Cells (not included):

  • Make sure this fits
    by entering your model number.
  • WAKE UP TO YOUR FAVOURITE STATION – The MB400 clock radio allows you to choose your favourite station on FM or DAB to wake up to
  • STREAM YOUR MOBILE MUSIC – Connect your mobile phone via Wireless Bluetooth and enjoy high quality sound for your music, podcasts and internet radio
  • PLAY MP3 FILES FROM USB AND SD CARD – Listen to all your digital music, just save from your PC to USB and play it anywhere
  • TAKE DAB RADIO WITH YOU – Powered by mains or C-Type Battery, the MB400 can be used anywhere from a site radio to a bedside alarm clock
  • FUTURE PROOF DAB AND DAB+ TUNER – With both DAB and DAB+ covered, you don’t have to worry about the airwaves going quiet through planned upgrades to DAB broadcasting

This is a great bedside clock radio,it has all of the features one could expect a product at this price range to have, excellent signal, i don’t even need to pin up the arial. My only grumble is that it’s not immediately obvious how to do things like set alarms and set the time, to set an alarm you need to hold the snooze/dim button until alarm 1 alarm 2 etc shows on the display, once you figure this out from the well written ,clear instructions its easy. However they don’t tell you that the radio needs to be off to do this. The volume knob is very sensitive allowing you to choose any volume level that the radio is capable of, unlike my last radio that had up and down buttons that meant i could only select certain levels. During the initial scan it found 40+ stations, all of which were of a reasonable quality.

Not only do you get the choice of fm vs dab on this radio, but it also features a radio alarm function, alarm function without the radio, a usb to plug in music and the ability to stream music via bluetooth to this well built machine. Its sturdy and takes some knocks. The speaker is also very good for its class and price range.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • An alarm clock that forgets the days of the week in odd numbered years, but only in August!
  • The August has almost everything but cannot be charged via a USB able
  • Good sound, easy to use, but why no headphone socket?

Sounds great, i like that it has so many functions. Relatively easy to use once i read the manual, but not intuitive. Connects well via bluetooth to my phone. The sleep timer is good – i can use bluetooth mode to play music from my phone to go to sleep, and it wakes me up with the radio mode in the morning. It did say in the manual that the radio mode allows specific stations to be set for the alarm, but i didn’t see an option for this when setting the alarm.

Great radio and value for money. Dab reception great in the bedroom where i use it. Compact too plus battery or mains. Bluetooth speaker brilliant to play podcasts and audible books from iphone 6s+. Only thing i criticise is the buttons don’t feel that solid and very ‘clicky’ and volume knob goes from ‘stiff’, low volume to ‘looser’ has volume turned up. Still worth it and recommend.

I’m really pleased with this radio. I use it as a bedside alarm and it looks very nice. It sounds even better – sound quality is excellent. I found it very straight forward to set up. Only a few very minor quibbles: 1/ the display is too bright for me at night even at its dimmest so i lean a book against it 2/ contrary to what the instructions say, i can’t find a way to specifiy the dab channel for the morning alarm i. It will just play the last station tuned in to 3/ i put loads of music on an sd card but you can only navigate the sd/usb inputs sequentially track by track, not even by folder, which is limiting. Overall, based on a few weeks of ownership, great product. What i like most is the massive variety of inputs, including an sd card slot (not often featured on similar products).

This replaced the most annoying radio alarm known to man. The old one finally stopped working intermittently so i wanted something easy to program and not too expensive. This was easy to program once we were able to establish a signal in my loft bedroom. It is good value and came well packaged. I can also see the screen; it’s bright enough to read.

This does the job – it connects to bluetooth, and other devices, it allows you to set two alarms, and it has a sleep function. However, it feels like a cheap and poorly designed radio. The clicking sound when you press the buttons is so loud it wakes the baby up, and the features aren’t intuitive – e.

Also, the bluetooth stays connected and looking for signals all night – so woke baby up (again) having listened to bluetooth going to sleep, because i tried to watch a video on my phone the next morning. Most speakers will time out after a few minutes of receiving no signal.

Small & compact replacement for bulky mini hi-fi in kitchen. Very happy with the sound & bluetooth functionality for streaming spotify from my phone. My reason for awarding four stars – i think the designers missed out here by not having a remote control for the unit, a little inconvenient, but i knew this before i made the purchase. Would have been a five star review if it came with a remote.

The august has almost everything i wanted from a bed side radio alarm clock at a good price: 2 alarms, dab+, bluetooth speakers, a usb charge point, a dimmable display with plenty of place for information and the option to be woken up by the radio, a buzzer or my own mp3 tracks from an sd card or a usb stick. Ideally, the device could have been a bit smaller and powered via a usb cable, rather than taking up a 240v socket by yet another unnecessary power adapter. Yes, you guessed correctly, the power adapter reduces the voltage down to 5v = usb voltage. The mind boggles, hence 1 star deducted.

The dab function can cope with my tablet being nearby without descending into crackles, unlike the previous radio. It isn’t especially intuitive to program, but the addition of bluetooth functionality more than made up for that. I love being able to play music on my phone fthough the speakers without fannying around with any cables.

What a fantastic sound from this dab radio. We used it as a speaker for spotify on christmas morning and have hardly turned it off since. It’s very lightweight and easy enough for my 9-year-old to set and use.

It really is a little gem, if you are considering a purchase then go ahead, you’ll be glad you did.

We now have two of these lovely little radios. The red one matches our camper and it comes away on holiday with us. The blue one goes well in our bedroom. I like that it can be powered by mains or battery. I like the sleep mode – you can choose how long you want it to play. I like that the alarm starts quiet quietly and then increases in sound to your chosen volume. The sound quality is fine – not at all tinny. The size is neat and fits in the spaces that we have available.

Dab signal can be easily interfered with by other electronic devices. The most limiting factor, however, is that you can switch the led display off when playing the radio but at night when you turn the radio off for a bit of sleep, even on the dimmest setting the case of the radio itself glows from the light within and your eyeballs are welded to the back of your skull as the entire room is bathed in an eldritch glow. I replaced my old clock/radio with this one as the low-pitched hum it emitted used to disturb my sleep but there is no chance of sleep with this bedside searchlight. Have to use it in the kitchen now and keep searching for something both quiet and dull.

In terms of versatility, it gets 10/10 from me. You can, one way or another, play music from just about any source. Build quality is ok, no better or worse than i would expect for the price. I can only give it 4 stars though because it is not as easy to use as it might be. I can take a lot of button presses to get from one source to another and it’s far too easy to click once too often and skip past what you want; then you have to start again.

Jusy what i need down my allotment. Easy to follow instructions and it picks up 40 dab stations and stores them easily. If had to give one negative that would be the antenna not being the pull up metal type insted its a wire. . Although it does have a handy loop to pin it up in my shed. It pairs easy with my phone so i can use my spotify and pod casts. Its a neat tidy radio thats brilliant for home, garden and shed.

Lives in the kitchen, but also great in summer in the garden. Bluetooth plays your phone playlist while cooking or relaxing. Good dab reception for local radio, all the national and international stations, and crucially test match special on the patio.

First radio i have bought for nearly 30 years so i was impressed how far they have moved on, the sound of the mb400 is first class t the point of now being the best sound/music system i own now. I haven’t got my head around all the settings as yet but i am sure that will come with a bit more time. One comment would be it maybe better to include the instructions in the language where it’s being sold, e. G uk sheet of instructions for the uk market and then they could be written in larger print for people who have vision impairment (like me). Packaging was about right although maybe a plain wrapper of some sort would improve the security when being delivered. A well made radio at a fair price and now a valuable asset. Btw i received a £10 off offer (instead of the usual £5 one) for a set of speakers which was really useful, thank you.

“An alarm clock that forgets the days of the week in odd numbered years, but only in August!, The August has almost everything but cannot be charged via a USB able, Good sound, easy to use, but why no headphone socket?”

I can take a lot of button presses to get from one source to another and it’s far too easy to click once too often and skip past what you want; then you have to start again.

This is my first dab radio and i’m more than happy with it. I was attracted to this particular unit because it has lots of options for playing music including usb and sd card. I’ve tried both and they’re fine, as are the dab, fm and bluetooth options. Set up for everything, including the alarms, was easy enough if you read through the guide. There are a couple of concerns. The buttons are a bit stiff and you do need to be pretty quick when you are storing stations since the display is a bit too speedy in returning to the top of the list. Other reviewers have pointed out the white noise at very low volume and this is annoying. However, at this price and with the options it offers, this unit is really good value for money.

This is a nice, slightly retro-looking clock radio with alarm. I love the way the alarm starts quietly and then builds up in volume. I always have it on beeper, rather than radio, but there are options to use any music device via bluetooth, or even a card reader. What i’m not so happy about is the dim display. Waking up in the middle of the night and peering groggily at the clock, it’s hard to decipher the numbers, so i never know what time it is. The picture of the radio on the amazon website shows nice clear figures. They are not this clear, honestly. My old clock radio had bright red figures, so very easy to see even without my glasses on. I realise that perhaps the bright red glow would keep some people awake, although i never had that problem. Perhaps that’s why this clock has such dim little numbers.

Happy with this radio – very clear, good quality sound, we have it by the bed as an alarm and you can see the time perfectly without it being too bright to sleep next too – the radio appears to be of good quality and well made, its not to light and flimsy feeling so all in all a good product worth buying.

I can’t be alone in struggling to find a decent ‘non retro’ looking dab radio / alarm clock right?to my view, this is well styled, is fully featured and sounds very reasonable for its size. The only reason it does not get 4 stars is the unintuitive user interface – why design in a control that was clearly designed for up / down / left /right / ok functionality and use it for something completely different?it is also disappointing that it only has a single volume control rather than a separate per function – e. Dab radio broadcast levels are different to fm, which are different again to a bluetooth deviceto end on a positive note, it was very pleasant to find the alarm have the option of being only active on weekdays (other options are every day or weekends), though of course a full schedule would have been even better (for those that don’t work a regular monday to friday schedule).

Sound is fine, and you can use a usb stick to have your own music to wake up. The metadata or filenames are not displayed on the screen though (it only displays rds/digital radio information), and you can only access your music in sequence and try to remember the number. The alarm clock has an everyday/weekdays only/weekends only switch which is convenient. The main problem is with the power : if you unplug the power cord from the wall socket, or if there’s a power outage, the radio will stop and lose all its settings even if you have batteries.Batteries wil only rescue the radio if you unplug the power cord from the radio itself first — not very helpful for power outages.

Works well in my location, albeit i need to move it a bit to get the station signal fixed. Dropping it to 4 stars is because it isn’t the easiest to set up if your not techie minded. Another point to note is when playing the tracks on your usb stick it doesn’t display the title of the track, so looking for a particular one is only possible if you print out your track list first. It has a nice tone to it though.

This does the job – it connects to bluetooth, and other devices, it allows you to set two alarms, and it has a sleep function. However, it feels like a cheap and poorly designed radio. The clicking sound when you press the buttons is so loud it wakes the baby up, and the features aren’t intuitive – e. You can switch the backlight off when the radio is playing, but not when it’s switched off. It takes a lot of brainpower to memorise how to use the various features. Also, the bluetooth stays connected and looking for signals all night – so woke baby up (again) having listened to bluetooth going to sleep, because i tried to watch a video on my phone the next morning. Most speakers will time out after a few minutes of receiving no signal.

Solid unit that is well built. The nfc chip is great for pairing with my lg nexus 5 phone. Sound quality is very good at typical volumes but starts to struggle when cranked up. In my kitchen, it’s only a problem if the dishwasher is on. Controls are not all that intuitive but the instructions are more than adequate to get it tuned in and working. Nice little touch is the ability to dim the display – ideal if used as an alarm clock next to the bed.

This is the second unit i have bought, since the sound quality is excellent and i have been able to secure them at a good price (this radio/speaker is available elsewhere for up to £70). I have one unit as a bedroom alarm clock and radio, and one as a radio in my bathroom- how nice to shower to decent sound. The one drawback is that everything is geared towards inputs- i. Playing things through the speaker, such ad your mobile phonest, usb stick, or mp3 player. Did no-one think it might be a good idea to have a headphone socket??. Sometimes it’s imperative to be able to listen to music without disturbing other people. Nevertheless, if you are looking for a small, robust, easy to use radio with good clear sound, i can recommend this.

Really good quality product which gives a lovely clear sound. Does everything i could want and the bluetooth facility is superb. Perfect for use in the garden as battery operated as well as mains. Would recommend both product and seller, dispatch was very swift, arrived a day early.

Lots of features for the price.

It’s a great little alarm clock, decent quality too. However, my one bug bear is that in 2015 it forgot that the week started on monday and finished on friday, and the weekend was saturday and sunday. It though the weekend was friday and saturday and the week was sunday to thursday. Not good for an alarm clock. I contacted support and they said it was only for 2015 and only for august. I could live with that, so i did. They did offer me a small refund of some of the price but i let it slide. Come august 2016 – no problems. Problems again – the same mix up between when the week and weekend starts and finish.

First radio i have bought for nearly 30 years so i was impressed how far they have moved on, the sound of the mb400 is first class t the point of now being the best sound/music system i own now.

Good speaker, shame about the app. Speaker is excellent for its size. Unfortunately the app lets it down as it only seems able to detect the speaker at switch on.

Unlike the others it was easy to set up and has brilliant sound quality. Third time lucky in finding an airplay compatible speaker, thanks to amazon i was able to return the others. Unlike the others it was easy to set up and has brilliant sound quality. The only slight gripe is the braille type touch controls on the top are difficult to see in bad light.

This is a great little speaker. This is a great little speaker. When i opened it i thought ‘oh man this is tiny’ but it really kicks out some good volume. The bass and drums are nicely defined so that you don’t end up with them merging into one farty noise together. It is really easy to set up and use. I am definitely going to be getting more of these including a few of the larger model ws300 and set them up all over my house.

I had to defer to my son (an it man) to get them working. And even he was frustrated initially. The sound is better than i expected.

Excellent build and functionality with decent sound. August sent me this wi-fi speaker for review, and i think it’s very good. The ws150 is the smaller sibling of the ws300; it has all the same functionality and electronics as the ws300 but is around half the size and only one third the weight. This is great if you need an easily transportable wi-fi speaker, but the sound isn’t as special on the ws150. However, it looks good, the build quality is excellent, it works really well and the sound is still very decent. Functionally, it’s very good. Connection via bluetooth (nfc and conventional pairing) was simple and gave a good solid connection up to at least 8 metres. Aux wired input also works fine, and the stylish, simple controls on the top are very good. Wi-fi set-up was pretty simple, too, even for this novice. The app downloads and installs without difficulty and connection was pretty easy after that.

The performance from this tiny speaker is nothing short of amazing. I’ve had it for a couple of weeks and it produces some of the best sound i’ve heard from much more expensive portable speakers. Setting up is relatively simple. If you’re not tech savey then i suggest you follow the instructions very closely. I’ve requested a ws300 i was that impressed so i will be updating this review if i manage to get one. I’ve tested it in wifi mode. It seams to create some sort of bridge. You connect ot the speaker and it connects you to your wifi for internet. I’m not sure if that will have negative effects on busy home wifi networks.

The app downloads and installs without difficulty and connection was pretty easy after that.

Excellent budget multi-room setup. I took a gamble and bought 1 ws300 and 2 ws150’s having just read a few of the reviews. Due to a neat offer on amazon at the time, it only cost me £2 more than only buying two of the speakersi’ve long hankered after a sonos setup around the house, as friends with deeper pockets have impressed with the multi-room setups they have – but i’ve never been able to justify the cost of a clutch of sonos speakers. I have experimented with a cheap airplay speaker (tango air) and airplay bridges to connect existing speakers, but can only achieve a multi-room setup via a mac, not via ios devices. So i thought we’d give august’s new system a go. I plugged all three speakers in and turned them on out of the box, downloaded the august alink app and followed the on-screen instructions – within 5 mins i have a multi-room setup that allows me to play the same thing (at different volumes) in three rooms, pair two and have a different source on the third, or have three things in three rooms. The simple pleasure of having the same song playing in the bedroom, living room and kitchen as you walk around the house was exactly what i wanted and perfect for parties. A few points:- music source. Can play local media off mobile device very easily from within alink app.

Easy to set up and use speaker. The speaker arrives well packaged and there are details on the front of the box of what this speaker is capable of. Inside you also receive a usb cable, audio cable and a user manual. It is suggested you charge the speaker fully before first use with the provided usb cable to a powered usb port, a full charge can take up to 7 hours. Whilst the speaker is charging this will give you time to download the app ‘aug alink’ either from google play if you own an android device or if you have an iphone from the apple store. Enable wifi on your device and connect to your network. Switch on the speaker and after only 20 seconds the speaker will enter wifi mode with the lights of the speaker letting you know what stage the speaker is at. Using the app on your chosen device, whether that would be a phone or tablet, you can now proceed to run the application and press ‘wifi setup wizard/add device’. The wizard will glide you through the setup stages with ease and if you want to add another device to the list like the other model speaker you can do this by repeating the steps, the setup wizard takes you through. That is not all the speakers can do, other benefits are:you can connect your phone or tablet directly to the speakers wifi network which then will turn your speaker into a router.

 kindly given to me to review this is a portable bluetooth speaker that can also tap into streaming services thanks to it’s built in ability to log onto wifi networks. The ws150 is the smaller sibling to the larger ws300 and it shares many of the same looks. Along the top are control buttons, on the back is the power switch, aux in, and a microsd card slot. The speaker can be used as a bluetooth speaker, streaming music directly from your mobile, but to really get the most of this you want to set it up on wifi. Once i’d spotted a problem with the virgin superhub 3. You’ll need to download the august app and then use the app to configure the speaker. This is where the superhub 3 caused an issue as it has a single network that you connect to, rather than having a 2. My mobile had automatically picked the faster 5g band and it couldn’t connect the speaker as it requires the mobile to be connected to the 2. This is likely just a problem with the way the superhub 3 tries to make life easier by only presenting a single network, so if you get an error message when trying to connect this could be the issue. I happen to have an android tablet that only connects via the 2. 4 band so i used that to complete the setup without any further issue.

The wi-fi facility could be so much better. It depends on a mediocre app. The speaker works, but is nothing special. The wi-fi facility could be so much better. It depends on a mediocre app. Sound quality ok, but not great.

This is a great little speaker. This is a great little speaker. When i opened it i thought ‘oh man this is tiny’ but it really kicks out some good volume. The bass and drums are nicely defined so that you don’t end up with them merging into one farty noise together. It is really easy to set up and use. I am definitely going to be getting more of these including a few of the larger model ws300 and set them up all over my house.

Great speaker for a fantastic price. . I have linked these with my phone via an app and find them fantastic. The sound is crisp and clear.

Unlike the others it was easy to set up and has brilliant sound quality. Third time lucky in finding an airplay compatible speaker, thanks to amazon i was able to return the others. Unlike the others it was easy to set up and has brilliant sound quality. The only slight gripe is the braille type touch controls on the top are difficult to see in bad light.

Multiroom Wireless Airplay Speakers : Lovely speaker but beware the hidden “demons”

Amazing sound quality at an amazing price, really please with this purchase.

Multiroom, bluetooth, wifi, nfc and plenty more. Size vs quality, nothing can match for sure. In my opinion – if the speaker can make you believe what you are hearing, the job is almost done. 4000mah battery and usb out for charging coupled with plenty of connectivity options. I’ve been using this for past 7 days and so far worked brilliantly. The soundthis speaker sounds exactly you want to hear. No matter your musical tastes and genre is, whether you are a bashed or not – this speaker delivers the music. Quality of audio is clean and open, no colouring though slightly mid forward, lows and highs are just accurate.

Multiroom Wireless Airplay Speakers – August WS300 – 15W WiFi/ WiiMu / Bluetooth : Hi fellow amazonians :o)firstly, i ‘d like to point out that i did not get the speaker free via amazons vine program or from august themselves. Believe it or not, i bought this with my own hard earned cash and through much research and a bit of blind faith. . I did however get the speaker during one of amazons lightening deals for the brill price of £85. :o):o) i did find it strange that i had added this to my wishlist and the lightening deal came up a couple of days later. . But i for one am not complaining and am certainly more then happy with my purchase :o)firstly i’d like to get the the bits that i’m not too endeared with out the way first. 1) the finish / build could be a lot better, as the inputs on the back aren’t finished off that well, and the rubber top and bottom are not as flush with the light grey metal surround. Regardless of price, i would expect nothing less then perfection. I know a lot of speakers don’t have cases, but one would have been nice – if anyone from august of fellow customers can advise then that would be great. 3) august alink, which is the app you should look for in the playstore (incorrect app name given in the supplied manual – as pointed out in another review too) in order to control the wifi / multi-room features could certainly have a more friendly and functional ui, especially where playing content stored on your phone / tablet is concerned. I would love the developers to take the best ui features from my note 4 music player and black music player, as well as the sound quality of neutron music player. 4) i would also like to see existing playlists imported to the alink app, and also for the app to have a built in eq, so that one can tinker with the sound stage to their liking – if there is one, and i am missing trick then please again, do let me know.

Crisp clear and i can listen to iheart radio ♡♡. Have linked up with another august speaker and i am over the moon with the crisp clear sound. The speakers are in separate rooms so i can hear around the house without any worries or issues.

Works with your windows pc’s too. This wifi speaker sounds excellent. I’ve tried it on bluetooth, aux in and wifi using my hudl tablet without problem. 0 pc to stream to it was problemenatic (i was not even sure it would work with windows media player) but it did eventually after trying a few things. After setting up streaming on wmp wiimu player appeared and allowed streaming to ws300. My only critisism is that the manual is so small it is difficult to read. And it didn’t help me streaming from my windows pcs. But works over all sources now and sounds great. It is worth charging unit before setting up as my battery was very low.

Great sound, easy set up, works seamlessly with airplay. . I’d wanted a wifi speaker for a while and have kept an eye on the market, when these came out i watched the reviews and nothing else seemed to come close in terms of value and reviews. Finally got around to buying one and am very impressed. First impressions out of the box were good, the unit was a nice weight and tactile. The black parts are slightly rubbery feeling and the buttons have a nice click to them. The ‘click’ area is smaller than the engraved areas for each button – that is the only very minor issue on the feel, once you know where to click it’s no problem. There is also a usb charge lead and a mini jack connector lead. The box doesn’t include a mains plug, no biggy as usb plugs are only a couple of pounds on ebay. Set up with the app was super easy, the manual even has a qr code straight to app download. I followed the set up steps – which is basically entering your wifi password and choosing a name for the speaker – and i was done.

Buy far great speakers they hold there charge easy charge great sound and perfect for traveling you just connect via bluetooth or wifi plus i have the big speaker and small the small speaker and together awesome sound.

Great sounding wifi speaker with loads of bottom end, even at low volume. . I am very pleased with this purchase. Easy to set up and running, the bluetooth connectivity was painless, but the real point is the excellent sound. The speaker feels substantial, and even at low volumes it displays a really satisfying level of bottom end. I tried playing a variety of music, old and new, ranging from sonny rollins, the beatles, bert jansch, bob dylan, howlin’ wolf, slim harpo, the who, the kinks, the move, blue oyster cult, johnny winter, the monkees, gregorian chants and the velvet underground. It all sounded great, and although i haven’t yet pushed the volume whilst i ‘play it in’, i am sure that it will handle that, too. I am so thrilled with the purchase, that i think i’ll buy another to make it stereo.

Solid sound but a bit annoying. The stiff sliding switch on the back might be good for travel, but it makes it harder to turn on and off in everyday use. Annoyingly, it doesn’t remember the volume from the previous use. Connects well and good sound.

August sent me this wi-fi speaker for review, and i think it’s absolutely excellent. It looks good, it works really well and the sound is terrific. I’ll start with the sound, because if you’re paying this much for a speaker (it costs a hundred quid at the time of writing) you expect very good sound – and you’ll get it. It’s important to break in the speaker with at least an hour’s playing at low volume (i played it for three hours before trying anything louder) and after that it’s really, really good. It’s beautifully balanced with crystal clear tops and middles and a very firm but not over-dominant bass. It responds very well to eq adjustment, too. I have played a lot of music through this now, from 16th-century choral music to beaty, bassy modern stuff with most things in between and it all sounds really good. In classical music, individual instruments and voices are clear and excellently articulated, rock has a terrific punch and the deep bass in things like london grammar’s hey now is all there. In short, i’m delighted with the sound.

One of these on special offer and was so pleased with it that i bought a second one. I bought one of these on special offer and was so pleased with it that i bought a second one. I had some difficulties setting it up but got extremely quick (and helpful) responses from the manufacturer. The sound is good – probably as good as is possible from relatively small speakers. I have two small criticisms. First, the manual could give more detail to obviate the problems i encountered. Secondly, as i have seen pointed out in other reviews, there should be a timeout so it turns itself off after a specified time of receiving no music.

Lovely speaker but beware the hidden ‘demons’. Love the speaker; quality good; attractive unit; could be a tad more powerful but more than adequate for our needs. Downside is the relationship between the speaker and the app – the speaker ‘broadcasts’ across 9 of the 13 available channels in the 2. 4ghz spectrum, which can (and does in this house) cause all kinds of complications. Have spoken to august and it is not possible to turn this function off which is a real shame and i will have to return both these speakers. I basically need an attractive airplay speaker that plays music and not something that blocks out the very few channels available to me.
