Betron NR200 Wireless Bluetooth Speaker Built in Microphone : Small but powerful

This is the second betron speaker i have had and again i was not disappointed. It was delivered as expected, well boxed and undamaged. The speaker itself is very compact and feels well made. You can connect the speaker by bluetooth or the cable supplied which is good depending on your needs. Sound is good quality and is obviously dependent on the device the speaker is plugged into, as far as any special sound setting or bass, treble or any eq settings. In short a great little speaker that does what you need it to do.

Bought it to use in the shed/greenhouse as my dab radio eats batteries. This thing has lasted all day on a single charge so cant fault it. If you want hi-fi quality room filling sound then you will need to spend 10x the amount. But this speaker remains clear an crisp even at quite high volumes (better than either of my dab radio’s).

Great little speaker use it all the time with my kindle and phone. Listen to books and music while i’m busy. Plenty loud enough i can still here it even with my hairdryer going.

Great speak, good sound quality for the price, the reason for 4 stars is just some personal preference things, disabling the hands free part of the speaker, the touch controls constantly beeping when touching them. I was amazed though how loud the volume goes before distortion. Would recommend and pleased i went a little larger.

I am very happy with the service, the delivery was earlier than stated. The item was well packaged and protected. Set up was easy and i have had no problems at all. I especially like the volume which is perfect. I read review after review before buying and am very pleased i went with the majority. Love it and would recommend.

Betron NR200 Wireless Bluetooth Speaker Built in Microphone for Calls for iPhone, iPod, iPad : Yes, this isn’t high end and it doesn’t sound it. What you get is a quite small but sturdy looking and feeling player that offers pretty surprising value. The sound is acceptable if a little tinny, but surprisingly loud (as required) for such a small speaker. I would say two things to negative reviewers on here who rubbish this despite it working and doing an appropriate job for the circa tenner price tag;1) if you want really impressive sound, buy a something well researched for 10 times the price tag. 2) it does quite well really for what it costs. My four stars reflects this.

I paid £20 for this speaker-really impressed. The battery seems to last a while. I must have listened a few hours and haven’t charged it yet. It looks and feels like a good quality product. My only negative is when you push the touch sensei’s buttons they make a really loud beep that is quite annoying.

Recently purchased as a gift for me, to use with laptop when out and about or mobile phone. Well constructed and easily charged using my own phone charger (via usb). The supplied micro usb connector is very short and you would need a longer one if not using on bluetooth. Bass sound is not very prominent which is the only reason it only gets four stars.

This is an excellent bluetooth speaker i have my iphone and mp3 playing through it,sound and tone great easy to attach players to it. I have placed it in the kitchen so i can listen to my music through it while cooking and dining. All i can say again fabulous speaker and the colour great.

Great sound from the speaker, it is surprisingly loud. Also very easy to pair, the most annoying thing is the voice announcement which is only when the speaker switches on.

Bought after being impressed by the little kbs08. Great build quality, sound and design.

I connected it to my 24” tv in my kitchen as the sound from the tv was very low. Once connected via bluetooth, the sound is immense.

Great speaker with amazing bass. Connectivity range isnt the best but its standard and its super easy to connect to. Touch operated buttons are super useful and so is the ring feature built in. Battery lasts really long and doesnt take ages to charge up either.Overall a really good speaker, good sound, good build quality and i can recommend this to anyone.

I can’t say enough good things about this speaker as it’s simple to use, sold at a fantastic price (£ 23. 00 in the uk) and produces a sound quality so good a couple of friends thought i was lying about the cost?. The sound is great with loads of bass, there’s none of that horrible tinny sound usually associate with travel speakers. You won’t regret buying this product.

Fantastic quality and sound. I would happily recommend this product.

Definatly will be buying another.

Was originally going for the smaller 3w light up cylindrical betron after having been impressed with a friend’s. However, i have no other music players and read a review that if you wanted room filling sound to go for this model instead and so glad i did. Great sound quality and i haven’t needed to go high on volume as it really does fill the room. Very easy to pair with my iphone se and it’s barely bigger than my phone.

I only just received this today and already i’m seriously impressed. For the size of it it’s brilliant, it sounds great even when on full volume, it’s quite loud for the size of it. 99 i think it was in the lightning deal so that was a bonus. If you’re thinking of buying it then go for it, i doubt you’ll be disappointed. It’s really a bargain at this price (even at full price) and much louder than i actually expected for the size of it.

Brilliant for the money, clear as a bell, good enough bass and treble. Listening to it now and, yes it is remarkable for the money. The very loud sound effect it booms out when the volume is changed or the unit is turned on / off. Unnecessary and a bit of a mood changer when listening to quiet music.

Very good service from seller. Only disappointment was that the speaker is too loud. I wanted something that would go down to barely audit able to sleep to. Even at lowest setting this is quite loud. Apart from that it appears to be good quality and works well.

I bought one for my son for christmas, he is really impressed with the tone and the volume of the speaker. It was not as big as i has expected which is not an issue. I was so impressed with it i have bought another for myself. Great little speaker for the price.

Excellent powerful speaker, highly recommended everyone to try this one out.

Betron KBS08 Wireless Portable Travel Bluetooth Speaker – Cant go wrong for the price :D

I bought two of these as i was so impressed. You can choose between 7 colours for the outer casing. Small and compact this speaker packs a punch. If you put this on a wooden floor or table the bass is powerful enough to fill the room with quality sound. I would advise pealing off the plastic protective cover on the bottom of the speaker, otherwise when in full volume mode the speaker will move slowly along the floor. Once the plastic is peeled off it grips the surface well. I like the subtle lights along the side and the top which change colour when in use. This speaker also speaks to you to let you know that bluetooth is connected and disconnected. Whilst playing, if you get a phone call it will also start speaking the number of the person who is phoning you so you can recognise the number. You can connect to the speaker via bluetooth or using a 3.

I was looking for a cheapish bluetooth speaker for when i am in my garage and something that was better and louder than my phone. Seen this product had so many reviews and they where mostly positive which too me was a good sign. Firstly when it arrived i was suprised by its size i thought straight away it was a lot smaller than i thought it was going to be. I seen the pictures from others and the comments about its size but it’s still a small speaker and it did still suprise me but it looked well built and was heavier than i expected. I connected straight away because when i switched it on it was set to the bluetooth setting i put on a playlist and turned it up. . Was very happy with the sound quality. It’s nice and it is reasonably loud, definitely well louder than my phone and isn’t so loud that it effects the sound. This little thing moves about if you put it on a flat surface with a song that has bass which made me laugh. I picked it up and looked at the bottom i noticed a plastic disc shaped protective sticker so i took it off and underneath it was a tacky rubber base so when the bass from a song is on it stays still which is a nice touch.

This beast arrived yesterday, so not had a great deal of time to road test it. However, very impressed so far. The sound quality for a relatively small device is terrific. Pairing the speaker with my phone was extremely quick and straightforward and it came charged up and ready to go out of the box. It looks and feels robust although not exactly light. It’s not ‘heavy’ but i guess not as light as you might expect. One thing that may not be for everyone is the lighting effect round the edge of the speaker which changes colour as you play music. (my wife likes it, i can take it or leave it. ) anyway, in a family full of critics we’d had the speaker paired with 3 different i-phones (1 at a time) within 10 minutes of me trying it out.

This a great little speaker and agree with other reviews that sound is very goodi have tested it with a samsung galaxy s2 , tesco hudl and an ostech tablet with no problem on any of the devices. As stated in other reviews the voice announcing each mode as they are selected via the mode button is very loud and very annoying (can anybody hack this it to turn it off). It does seem though that from some of the reviews people are annoyed as they are continually changing modes but i wonder why. I have seen questions asked of how the volume is controlled and the answers been “from the connected device”. This is true when in bluetooth mode but when using the micro sd card the volume is controlled using the plus and minus buttons on the device. One slight shortcoming is there is no indication of the level of battery charge, the speaker just suddenly switches off when the battery becomes empty. I leave it plugged in when using it if possible though on battery it lasts several hours on a full chargei have found that sometimes i need to go into the controlling device and press the speaker name in the list of bluetooth devices before it will connect even if it was paired previously this seems to be true if the speaker has been previously connected to a different device. Mostly it just connects when it senses the device. Another added advantage is being able to use the speaker as “hands free device” to answer phone calls as where i live has a terrible phone signal i could leave the phone on the window sill and have the speaker on my desk. However at the moment i can’t answer the phone by pressing the phone button on the speaker.

I have been spending ever longer at my macbook pro as a result of the restrictions imposed by a developing medical condition and have become increasingly aware of its limitations when it comes to playing music. A friend recommended trying a bluetooth speaker as a ‘stopgap’ so, with this in mind, and determination to limit my spend, i spent some time looking for something that might fill the gap. So the betron was a result of seeing a compact, reasonably attractively designed unit that had good reviews, was inexpensive, and likely to fulfil the required function. Ordering from amazon, the unit arrived quickly and appeared robustly constructed and suitably utilitarian in design. First impression of the whole package was positive but i wasn’t impressed by the rather frugal instructions. I’m not one for ‘techie’ gadgets, so it takes its time for me to install anything (that, probably, 6 year old could do in seconds. However, all fairly straightforward – after a few attempts (would have been quicker had the instructions been better). Like several reviews, i found the startup voice a bit weird – but it’s not an issue – but unlike some others i found the radio function works well (for what it is). I am impressed by the sound when it comes to playing music.

The sound is clear its quite powerful considering its size its heavy-ish due to the (steel ring around it?). Battery life is good also, all around well worth it. Put it on a wodden surface and it acts as a speaker box which sounds even better than it already does. Inputs are weird though, as it it uses a usb connector for charging and it uses the same connecter as a aux audio in and not the 3. 5 mm female earphone connector on speaker – (the connector is the same as a samsung phone charger connector or ps4 controller usb cable) not normally used as an audio in but hey, it works. Grab one of these kb-s08 speakers its worth it.

  • The best speaker for its size and price
  • Very Happy And Suprised! Excellent Quality/Sound/Battery life
  • I don’t usually shout but this is AMAZING!

Amazing i was doubtful buying this but i’m so pleased the quality and sound is wonderful so good i bought a further 2 for other family members i bought red black and white i love the fact it is portable charge is really good i use mine all day bass is super got it linked to phone and tablet 10/10 what a bargain next day delivery with prime even better buy one you wont regret it ✔.

This speaker is a solid weighty product designed and manufactured to the highest quality with a finish without blemish. The sound quality for its size is commensurate or better than some speakers of a larger nature. Sadly i returned this item due to it not having the bluetooth range that i was looking for. It stated ten meters but after five meters it lost its connectivity. Overall though a great solid product and recommended and if kept close by to your proposed bluetooth tie up then you can expect great sounds and satisfaction.

Important – the product i ordered from amazon never arrived, so this brief review is based on an identical unit i sourced elsewhere. Firstly, don’t be fooled by the size of this unit. The volume and sound quality is actually far superior to some expensive bookshelf speakers i’ve had in the past. Put it on a wooden desk or tabletop, and the bass punches it’s way through with astonishing ease. The bluetooth connectivity works flawlessly, and at some distance away too. Further than is to be expected for a small bluetooth speaker. Battery is pleasantly surprising too. I’ve had around 5 hours continuous playtime on a full charge. Obviously you won’t have to worry about battery life if you choose to keep it plugged into a charger while in use. I wasn’t a fan of the colour-changing lights at first, which cannot be turned off.

My husband has tinnitus and i have misophonia so we both require an alternative sound source to deal with our ‘issues’. This little beauty has so many good things going for it. Bluetooth, (and pairing is a doddle)inbuilt antenna, so it can pick up fm radio. Led colour changing lights which can be turned on or off. Phone call receiving/ending/rejecting feature. Excellent acoustics, for such a tiny thing (61mm x 61mm x 61mm) it has a powerful soundprobably the only thing that lets it down slightly is the relatively short playing time of only four hours, but unless, like me, you like to listen to audible (it’s an amazon app so i don’t suppose they’d mind some free advertising) books all night that shouldn’t be an issue. For its current price, much reduced, it is excellent value, and comes with instructions, and charging usb cable/jack.

Amazing speaker with great sound. Much better than expected for the brilliant price. The bluetooth works brilliantly and supports spotfiy well. The product arrived in good time and was well proctedted. The speaker itself i say a great size and very sturdy. It can fill a room with music and volume can ben controlled via phone and the device itself. I have also send this via the laptop as a speaker. It has been on two holidays with us and is great for the beach and hotel room. Would definitely my recommend and buy again.

If you’re expecting something with the room shaking audio of bose soundlink or taotronics 20w speaker you’ll be disappointed but for something that’s less than a tenth the price of bose you get a tiny, lightweight speaker that is solidly built, doesn’t have the tinny pitch of many small speakers and has the best sound of any of its size and price rivals. For anyone who wants a speaker they can pop in a bag for travel or listen round the house it’s ideal and it does get pretty loud without distortion.

Its not a big sound, obviously, the unit is only the size of an aerosol lidbut its a nice sound, and the bass is present and balanced. With careful siting you may even get a small thump out of itits a weighty device, and seems very sturdy and engineered. It feels more expensive than it is in the hand. Lights up nicely too :-)at this price it has to be a 5 star rating.

First thing i noticed was the size of this speaker how it produces the sound is amazing. It’s tiny which is perfect for me just to take down the beach or on site. It’s really well made and i just can’t knock it for the price. I don’t get why others have rated it down on the sound quality i mean come on it has one tiny speaker in it so you are not going to get deep bass and good mid range and tweeters. That said it’s a good sound and it does go pretty loud, you can’t compare this to any high end bose speaker because it’s about 12 x less in price and about 4 x smaller with one speaker.

For the time that it worked, it worked very well. I can honestly say, i loved this little beast of a speaker. I liked the overall volume, the bass was so good it was actually a bit of an issue (i’ll get to that in a second) and the battery life was superb, much better than i initially expected. It has a very durable and well made feel about it, something you hold in your hands and think that if you threw this at someone they’d break a bone or something and considering the price is an amazing buy and i would probably buy it again considering the circumstances. The bass of the speaker (since it does not have any rubber grips or ‘feet’ to hold it) will make the speaker migrate to the closest way off any surface faster than i can say ‘what a tune’. I solved this by wadding up some tissue and wedging it against something like a bottle of water, not great but what can you do?. 😂but the main reason that i gave this otherwise amazing product 3 stars is the fact it stopped charging. I’ve tried 2 different cables along with the one supplied but to no avail.

Betron E50 Wireless Bluetooth Speaker : Couldn’t be happier.

Really impressed with the sound. We use it in the car so the kids watch a film on my laptop and via bluetooth we get the sound through the betron and it’s great. Betron just sent me a really polite email asking for a review, and because their product is so good (bought it in june for 12 year old’s birthday), i though i would. It’s small, super-portable, and quite amazing quality of sound for size and cost. We found out about it through word of mouth and are really pleased with it. (am thinking of one for myself as well).

Great little item that packs a punch sound-wise. Have had this about 18 months now and only realised last week that you twist it and it extends to give better sound. Wherever my ipad goes, this goes too.

I did a fair bit of searching and reading reviews before i chose this product as i was looking for something lightweight, portable that i could take travelling with me later in the year just to have some music available whenever and wherever. I bought this product as a trial intending to purchase another model if necessary closer to the date but i have to say this works wonderfully. For such a small item it really does give a good volume of sound with incredibly good quality for the price and a nice base tone. I work in a kitchen and take this item in daily so we can have music whilst we work and the simplicity of connecting ones phone to this device (via bluetooth) makes it ideal allowing anyone to put on their music when its free. I would advise that the range on the bluetooth is rather lacking i’ve found that if i keep within 15 feet of the device its fine but should i take my phone further away it will drop out, however it picks back up as soon as you get within range again. The twisting to lock motion is still working well and overall im really satisfied with this purchase, would definitely recommend for anyone looking for a small portable speaker.

Bought a few of these at christmas for the older kids as stocking fillers and it changed the way they listen to their music on their phones. Some have upgraded to larger speakers while others are happy to stick with the betron mini speaker. I did have the pleasure of hearing one of these and was more than pleasantly surprised. They wont burst your eardrums but they do improve the sound coming out of your phone 10 fold. Great price, well built, good sound, what else more can you want?.

I am extremely pleased with this purchase which i use mainly on ipad to increase volume of talks on youtube. The first one i ordered was faulty, and i had immediate assistance from betron by email. Another speaker was dispatched by return and i would congratulate betron customer services for the efficient and immediate way they dealt with the matter. Five stars to customer services also.

Sounds much better than its size and is 100 times better than the sound from my mobile phone. If you want the very best you can get from this little speaker then adjust the equalizer in your music app / device to suit. I tweaked the low frequencies up and set mid and high frequencies in the middle. Bluetooth range was short but manufacturer sent replacement without being asked and this replacement has the specified bluetooth range. In summary this is a great little device and the company supplying are well motivated to ensuring that you have a good experience.

Actually got one for my neighbour as she loved it too.Hers actually speaks to tell you when it’s connected by bluetooth. Maybe it’s because her ipad is more up to date than mine.

I bought this for use when working away from home and staying in hotels and b&bs. I use it paired with my android phone. I have the radio player app installed so i have effectively a portable radio. I also use it for streaming my music collection that i have uploaded to google music. The sound quality is good, and when you twist and let the device expand you get a noticeable improvement in bass. Initially i started using it with a tablet, with mixed results, and was about to return it, and then i tried it with my phone, and it was obvious that it was the tablet that was at fault. I get 3-4 hours on a full charge using the bluetooth connection, but if i connect via the supplied 3. 5 mm audio lead, i get much longer, and this also turns the bluetooth off automatically. The only drawback is that the top is quite open, with the delicate speaker exposed. If putting it in my pocket i am careful to check there isn’t any junk floating around that could cause damage.

Betron XR77 Bluetooth speaker – Its is fantastic. I use for when I go out skateboarding

Great speaker at a great price, sound quality is good, light and easy to pick up and move around easy to connect on either android or ipad through bluetooth, happy to recommend to anyone looking for a good speaker at a good price. So impressed, i bought another one as a christmas present for my dad. Connected to his android phone fine but could connect o samsung a tablet. Delivered quickly and well packaged.

Plenty loud enough and the sound is still crisp and clear, despite the small size. Unless you are spending 10x the amount (or more. ) this should be more than capable for most people. Easy to connect and has decent battery life. Bought it as a christmas present from my dad but now tempted to get one for our house too as was so impressed by the quality for such a cheap price.

Good bluetooth speaker at a very good price point. Sound was solid but i have heard better. However, at 1/2 or even a 1/3 the cost of a bose this is a must buy. Here are the specifications for the Betron XR77 Bluetooth speaker:

I purchased this for my office, it looked stylish and i did not need an expensive bluetooth speaker. Playing music from an iphone produces a good enough sound quality for that type of environment. Pros- easy to sync with your phone- turns itself off if you stop/pause the music after a few minutes. Good when you running it without a usb cable connected. – easy access buttons on the top. – stylish designconsnone, for the price and the sound quality, happy customer.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • for the money its very good
  • For the price, the sound quality, a good choice.
  • Excellent, superb and sleek

We’ll be keeping it plugged in and the only issue is that the usb charging cable is very short and doesn’t reach from the speaker sitting on a table top to a standard skirting board level wall socket. We’ve ordered a usb extension lead. Note that it doesn’t come with a plug – not a problem if, like us, you’ve got dozens of spare ones.

Perfect for hosting and home listening.

Have this connected to an echo dot and it has improved the sound no end. Two minor niggles are:1) as other reviewers have said the full volume voice announcements are annoying. 2) it’s more of a personal preference but don’t like the ring of light around the centre. If the minor niggles were addressed this would be a 5star product.

I use for when i go out skateboarding i get 4+ hours on full volume via bluetooth and it works whilst charging so i hook it up to a battery pack and use it all day. It sounds amazing, can even be heard from the other side of the park.

Very nice little speaker, and for the price i think exceptional value, i use it with my ipod nano and it gives a very acceptable sound, the bass is not as pronounced as my sons jbl portable but he paid almost 3 times the price. I also love the look of this unit, it appears very solid and well made.

Excellent, superb and sleek. Very good and presentable anywhere in the house. I hope to get three more for my friends on their birthdays, and as a wedding gift too.

I love the design of the speaker. It’s really good quality and the sound is really good. I would definitely recommend it.

I’m more than happy with the quality of sound this speaker provides and was surprised by the volume. . As were my neighbours when i first used it. I would highly recommend this speaker to anyone.

Bought as a speaker for bedroom or patio. Sits perfectly and discreet on shelf. Easy to set up and sounds brilliant.

Very pleased with this new speaker. It is modern and stylish and the performance is exceptional.

If you don’t buy this and waste your money on a beats pill then you have problems, beyond belief how good this is for the value.

I bought this speaker for my sister who is currently studying at university. She needed it for when she has large groups of friends over. The speaker performs well in a crowded room and has a clear sound with a good level of bass which can be heard even above the raucous sounds of students.

The sound quality isn’t great as you’d expect for the price but it’s handy to have around the house. The bluetooth range isn’t great and i find the battery doesn’t last too long if you have it full volume. It is quite load but as i say the quality isn’t fantastic. The first one i bought didn’t work/charge but betron sent me a brand new one immediately which worked fine. It gets a 4 star for customer service.

This graceful speaker has now filled several rooms with a well balanced sound. At full volume it does distort a little but if your device has a graphic equaliser you can probably counteract this. It’s appearance is almost sculptural like a mini henry moore piece. We are very satisfied with this purchase.

Great speaker, the sound is wonderful took very little time to set up. Arrived in good time and packaged well.

Thought, as its so small, would make a tinney noise, not so, amazed at quality and sound of this clever little compact device. Tip: ensure sound has passed the ‘okay’ noise protection warning and that the ipad is on ‘full’ potential sound, then it device works to full advantage. Buy it, i am very pleasantly surprised.

Gives a perfect volume for outdoor use with the ipod. This was brought to take on holiday alongside my ipod and it was everything i needed. Also didn’t cause any problems for other holidaymakers as the sound was confined therefore i wasn’t causing a nuisance to anyone else. The product arrived in perfect time and also came with a handy carry case that not only holds the speaker but also the ipod.

A quite brilliant little speaker.

Betron JRS40 Pop Up Portable Mini Travel II Capsule Rechargeable 40mm Speaker For Iphone, iPod, Ipad, Tablets and MP3 Players – White : Brilliant product, totally transforms my laptop adio volume and quallity when watching videos or listening to music, and so tiny it is easy to carry it anywhere as it takes up almost no room. Pleasant company to deal with too. Totally recommend this product, you will be astonished by the quality of sound it gives for something so tiny you can cover it inside your hand.

I bought the white one and i really like the colour. It is small and portable which makes it easy for me to bring it anywhere i go. It arrives in a small box and with a pouch to keep it as well. And it works well with my mini projector, laptop and iphone. Very happy with this product.

Used to clear desk of outdated , extremely large , pair of speakers with indifferent sound quality.

A friend took one of these on holiday with him recently- played it in the villa. I was amazed by the very good quality of sound for such a little speaker, so decided to buy one when i got back home. Very pleased & would recommend.

What a cheap naff looking product. . I could not be happier, this was purchased for my parents who had issues with the speakers on the ipad, and they are over the moon with it.

Bought this a while ago its fab.

I actually use these things as ‘sound pillows’ from tv’s headphone socket so i don’t wake the house watching late night tv. Tv is set to automatic shut-off after 4 hours and i haven’t to recharge yet after 4 days.

Excellent speaker can listen to all my songs audible books in comfort now volume is amazing and so clear what a brilliant speaker this is in such a small package. Many thanks your product is great.

Very happy with this device, i use it with my ipod and kindle when listening to books.

Great sound for such a little speaker. Bought it because i needed a speaker for both my laptop (speaker sound not very loud) and for my smartphone which could not play radio without earphones or external speaker. My only criticism would be the built in speaker lead as it’s only roughly 6* long. A wired in cable sllightly longer would be better so i could stand the speaker up properly when using my laptop. Great quick delivery from uk to spain.

Good volume and sound 🙂 bought this one for my mum to plug in to her tablet. I have one too, which i use with a laptop.

Arrived same day 1 star awardedcheap as chips 1star awardedsmall and compact 1 star awardedlost 2 marks for the fact the cord is 10cm long making for really tricky movement of the phone whilst attached so rather annoying.

For a small gadget, this is very loud. The only downside is i wish the lead was longer as its only a few inches long.

For the price and size of this product, it was a bargain. The sound was ridiculously good. This will be something i’ll carry with me everywhere. Even came with a handy pouch to keep the speaker safe in your bag.

I bought this to listen to the archers on my phone when i’m abroad. It isn’t hifi but what do you expect?. It’s loud enough for a small room and perfectly adequate for my purposes. Gold start, vg and a tick from me.

I used this for my phone speaker for when i use the sat nav on my phone. I really liked it because i could hear the sat nav instruction at motorway speed without any trouble, clear and concise. Only 4 stars as sometimes it would start to make a ‘buzzing’ noise, which i could not get rid off, even if i disconnected and reconnected, other than that it is a really speaker for the price.

Excellent product, good quality construction and nice sound.

Betron A3 Bluetooth Speaker, Good build quality, good price, recommended.

I bought this so i can hear my audiobook in the kitchen. My phone speaker wasn’t quite loud enough to hear over the cooking noises. This does the job perfectly. I also used it for some music when i had some friends over. The sound quality was pretty good in my opinion.

This is a budget product but with a premium sound. It’s small so easy to carry around battery life is good with a reasonable charge time. There could be more base but the rest of the range is good with good clarity when turned up high. Easy to pair with bluetooth auxiliary port as well and even has a light ring that can be turned off to save power.

This is my first experience of using bluetooth, and i must say i was pleasantly delighted with thislittle speaker. It paired with my ipad , iphone, and music centre immediately,without any problems. The rich tone is wonderful for such a small unit. I would certainly recommend it without question.

Comments from buyers

“great sound and build, Great sound and buildQuality, Good value when under a tenner”

It arrived on time – just before the persons birthday. He says the sound is good quality and it plays well. It’s quite small, could be held easily in a hand so small enough to take places in a bag. Perfect if you want a cheap portable speaker for cheap, really good quality for the price and for what it is.

First the delivery was super quick. Now as for the product, charged it up for a few hours before using no problems. Arrived in a small white box with a mini usb charging cable, all good. Does come with a mini guide booklet but this was surplus to requirements, buttons are neatly and positioned without feeling too fiddly and they’re clearly labeled with icon symbols making the holder aware of what they indicate. A flashing blue ring light around the speaker appears when on and does this to indomicate bluetooth and makes a small ringtone like noise when paired up with an enabled device (android lg g4 in this case). Paired up with my samsung tab 4 device and my wife’s iphone 6 no issues works faultlessly as it should smooth transition with no compromise on sound. I’d say this is perfect for hotel getaways, showers or kitchen use as this is where i utilise these kind of products most personally. Great enhancement for when playing music, podcasts and movies and you’re looking to create more of atmosphere or general sound presence. Yet to recharge and its been on constant use since the first week of the month (november). Quality inexpensive product from betron, good punchy bass response too.

It’s easy to set up and works great with my phone and tablet, but not so great with echo dot for some reason. I haven’t found a case that will fit it yet. The case suggested by amazon is way, way too small. If you know of a case that will fit this speaker please let me know somehow. I use this speaker outdoors for my ministry as one of jehovah’s witnesses , and so when someone requests to watch a video such as, ‘was life created?’, they can hear it above the noise of city bustle.

What a little cracker this speaker is, was very impressed with the sound quality. I brought this for watching youtube on my tablet some videos the volume on them are low this sorts that out no problem. I’m so impressed by this that iv’e ordered 3 more for my nephew and nieces. For the price this is a bargain.

Wasn’t that impressed with this as it keeps loosing the signal evan when your right next to it.

It’s neat, compact, easy to set up and the sound is really good, much clearer than a more expensive speaker i had before. Battery life seems good, i’ve used it quite a bit on a single charge so no issues there. I’d highly recommend this product.

Great sound, compact, nice looking and love the little coloured light ring around it. Connected to my ipod via bluetooth no problem. So good i’ve bought 3 more for xmas presents.

This gives a lot of bang for your buck. Some say sound is a bit tinny, for the price, it is perfectly acceptable and better than many.I am so happy i thought to give it a try. I use it for my youtube playlists on my mobile phone and can even hear it in the garden.

Ideal for music, pod casts, radio wont blow ya head off but fantastic for a little over a £5.

I purchased this speaker for our hospital physiotherapy gym based on previous reviews. We needed a speaker that was easy to use compact reliable powerful with good sound quality. We are delighted with the a3 speaker: the design and build quality are great and the sound is really lovely.

Even as a technophobe, i managed to open the box, set up and listen to music within 5 minutes. It really is that simple and straight-forward. For such a neat, small product i found the sound much, much more impressive than i imagined even at full volume (sorry neighbours). Charges really quickly and if it’s going to be used all day, i leave it plugged in whilst listening. As it’s so small and neat it’s easy to move around the house, if needed, and into the garden. In fact i like it so much, that i’m going to buy another. Can’t recommend it (as a technophobe particularly) highly enough and imagine that those of you who know about these things could do so much more with it.

I have one of these brilliant little speakers for 6 months, have taken it to spain and listened to pod casts of pur favourite radio programme on a mini sd card, we listen to the music on our phones via bluetooth and i also have an old mp3 player which doesn’t have blue tooth but that connects through the jack point. The sound quality is great, for classical music and pop. I have an echo which is no better in terms of volume and quality of sound. It is well made, easy to set up and wonderful value. I ordered 3 more for presents, delivered free in less than 24 hours for less than a tenner each.

Amazing little speaker that is paired with my samsung tablet great sound can be adjusted to you preference don’t know what i done without this little marvel.

This speaker is great for personal use, it gets really quite loud, and the bass is decent. Not for massive parties, but great for in the car and for gatherings. Good battery, and nice light.

I love the small size but big sound. I wanted to be able to pack it and not worry about the weight it will add to my luggage. It is very portable and easy to use (even for a non-techy person such as myself). I also love the disco lights around the edges. Will be nice in the dark on my holiday balcony. It doesn’t have a strap to hang it up with but i didn’t want to be able to do that. I know some devices can hang from sun shades etc. It charges using a lighting charger so you will only need 1 charger for both phone and boom box. It’s about 4 inches high and 3 inches diameter. Very compact but good clear sound quality. It’s also very good value for money.

Connects easy and has good power. Nice sound when connected via cable – skips and chops when connected to bluetooth. So half the time its good the other a bit annoying.

This mini speaker gets dragged to the pub every sunday and is still going. We don’t particularly take great care of it. My only complaint would be the protective rubber around the jack for the speaker to phone connector cable is too wide to pass my phone’s case. Therefore if we are not using the bluetooth function and going old school i have to remove my case. I have headphones from the same brand and the don’t have this issue.

I’m an archaeologist and work outside in the fields digging all day. It’s really good souns quality and loud enough to hear even with earmuffs on my head. But the only problen is that its battery would last only around 3 hours max. It’s very inconvenient for me to recharge it considering i work outside. For this reason only i’d give it 4 stars. Otherwise, super happy with my purchase.

This speaker sets up easily and sounds good, but is rather bulky compared to similar speakers and has an overly lightweight build quality. An alternative is the more compact and better built easyacc mini portable rechargeable bluetooth speaker with microphone for tablet/laptops – titanium black, which i own a couple of, have used for a while, and can definitely recommend.

The speaker is small and neat, a good size for traveling with. The sound level is not great for a room full of people but is just right for personal listening. The controls are not easy to see but ok when you get used to them.

Great sound to be honest i was not expecting it to be this good, its light and easy to carry.

Betron KBS08 Wireless Portable Travel Bluetooth Speaker Titanium, The best speaker for its size and price

I bought two of these as i was so impressed. You can choose between 7 colours for the outer casing. Small and compact this speaker packs a punch. If you put this on a wooden floor or table the bass is powerful enough to fill the room with quality sound. I would advise pealing off the plastic protective cover on the bottom of the speaker, otherwise when in full volume mode the speaker will move slowly along the floor. Once the plastic is peeled off it grips the surface well. I like the subtle lights along the side and the top which change colour when in use. This speaker also speaks to you to let you know that bluetooth is connected and disconnected. Whilst playing, if you get a phone call it will also start speaking the number of the person who is phoning you so you can recognise the number. You can connect to the speaker via bluetooth or using a 3.

I have a huawei p smart and cannot use this speaker to stream content while having the bluetooth on and either using data and wifi. I need to download content before it’ll play without buffering every 2 seconds and probably the reason the speaker had an sd port. The call functions do not work and if alarms on your phone go off when this is on, you need to switch them off on your phone. Which makes it inconvenient,, especially when you’re in the shower in the morningwhen i’ve answered the phone and tried to have a conversation with someone, they say they can’t hear me as it’s very faint, even if i hold the speaker to my mouth. I need to pick up the phone and speak to the person instead. This is very annoying and i wish i’d known about this before i bought this. Reading my phone manual states bluetooth speaker+streaming won’t work very well but nothing on bluetooth not being able to take phone calls etc. For this i’d thought the speaker troubleshoot would have something on it, but it doesn’t. The manual isn’t that great for instructions anyway. The flashing coloured lights this speaker uses are annoying, but easily removed.

Amazing speaker with great sound. Much better than expected for the brilliant price. The bluetooth works brilliantly and supports spotfiy well. The product arrived in good time and was well proctedted. The speaker itself i say a great size and very sturdy. It can fill a room with music and volume can ben controlled via phone and the device itself. I have also send this via the laptop as a speaker. It has been on two holidays with us and is great for the beach and hotel room. Would definitely my recommend and buy again.

Comments from buyers

“The best speaker for its size and price, Cant go wrong for the price :D, Great product in every waywould recommend!”

For the time that it worked, it worked very well. I can honestly say, i loved this little beast of a speaker. I liked the overall volume, the bass was so good it was actually a bit of an issue (i’ll get to that in a second) and the battery life was superb, much better than i initially expected. It has a very durable and well made feel about it, something you hold in your hands and think that if you threw this at someone they’d break a bone or something and considering the price is an amazing buy and i would probably buy it again considering the circumstances. The bass of the speaker (since it does not have any rubber grips or ‘feet’ to hold it) will make the speaker migrate to the closest way off any surface faster than i can say ‘what a tune’. I solved this by wadding up some tissue and wedging it against something like a bottle of water, not great but what can you do?. 😂but the main reason that i gave this otherwise amazing product 3 stars is the fact it stopped charging. I’ve tried 2 different cables along with the one supplied but to no avail.

Its not a big sound, obviously, the unit is only the size of an aerosol lidbut its a nice sound, and the bass is present and balanced. With careful siting you may even get a small thump out of itits a weighty device, and seems very sturdy and engineered. It feels more expensive than it is in the hand. Lights up nicely too :-)at this price it has to be a 5 star rating.

The sound is clear its quite powerful considering its size its heavy-ish due to the (steel ring around it?). Battery life is good also, all around well worth it. Put it on a wodden surface and it acts as a speaker box which sounds even better than it already does. Inputs are weird though, as it it uses a usb connector for charging and it uses the same connecter as a aux audio in and not the 3. 5 mm female earphone connector on speaker – (the connector is the same as a samsung phone charger connector or ps4 controller usb cable) not normally used as an audio in but hey, it works. Grab one of these kb-s08 speakers its worth it.

This speaker is a solid weighty product designed and manufactured to the highest quality with a finish without blemish. The sound quality for its size is commensurate or better than some speakers of a larger nature. Sadly i returned this item due to it not having the bluetooth range that i was looking for. It stated ten meters but after five meters it lost its connectivity. Overall though a great solid product and recommended and if kept close by to your proposed bluetooth tie up then you can expect great sounds and satisfaction.

If you’re expecting something with the room shaking audio of bose soundlink or taotronics 20w speaker you’ll be disappointed but for something that’s less than a tenth the price of bose you get a tiny, lightweight speaker that is solidly built, doesn’t have the tinny pitch of many small speakers and has the best sound of any of its size and price rivals. For anyone who wants a speaker they can pop in a bag for travel or listen round the house it’s ideal and it does get pretty loud without distortion.

This beast arrived yesterday, so not had a great deal of time to road test it. However, very impressed so far. The sound quality for a relatively small device is terrific. Pairing the speaker with my phone was extremely quick and straightforward and it came charged up and ready to go out of the box. It looks and feels robust although not exactly light. It’s not ‘heavy’ but i guess not as light as you might expect. One thing that may not be for everyone is the lighting effect round the edge of the speaker which changes colour as you play music. (my wife likes it, i can take it or leave it. ) anyway, in a family full of critics we’d had the speaker paired with 3 different i-phones (1 at a time) within 10 minutes of me trying it out.

Betron KBS08 Wireless Portable Travel tooth Speaker, Lovely little speaker that packs a punch

This speaker does just what you want. Easy connectivity, linked easily with my phone and amazon echo and looks pleasingly like a mini version of that system.

This a great little speaker and agree with other reviews that sound is very goodi have tested it with a samsung galaxy s2 , tesco hudl and an ostech tablet with no problem on any of the devices. As stated in other reviews the voice announcing each mode as they are selected via the mode button is very loud and very annoying (can anybody hack this it to turn it off). It does seem though that from some of the reviews people are annoyed as they are continually changing modes but i wonder why. I have seen questions asked of how the volume is controlled and the answers been “from the connected device”. This is true when in bluetooth mode but when using the micro sd card the volume is controlled using the plus and minus buttons on the device. One slight shortcoming is there is no indication of the level of battery charge, the speaker just suddenly switches off when the battery becomes empty. I leave it plugged in when using it if possible though on battery it lasts several hours on a full chargei have found that sometimes i need to go into the controlling device and press the speaker name in the list of bluetooth devices before it will connect even if it was paired previously this seems to be true if the speaker has been previously connected to a different device. Mostly it just connects when it senses the device. Another added advantage is being able to use the speaker as “hands free device” to answer phone calls as where i live has a terrible phone signal i could leave the phone on the window sill and have the speaker on my desk. However at the moment i can’t answer the phone by pressing the phone button on the speaker.

The sound is decent although it could be a little louder, the bass is alright. The loudness isn’t that bad but it just could be a little louder and that’s with holding the volume button down as you can increase the amplitude a little from the device. The voice you hear when you connect with bluetooth is a little weird, when you connect it says ‘bluetooth connected’ which is fine but it sounds like it says something weird when you first turn it on but it ends in bluetooth. For the price this is a really nice little speaker. I did buy another little speaker in the past for around £15 and this one is far better so for me it seems like this is a great product.

Comments from buyers

“The best speaker for its size and price, Good quality sound., Cant go wrong for the price :D”

It seems to work well and produces good quality sound. When on maximum volume it can be quite loud (especially considering it’s size). One thing i didn’t know before buying is that there is an automated voice which speaks (in questionable automated english) when you change the settings from bluetooth to aux etc. I know this would have annoyed me as it seems you cannot remove this feature. But thankfully the recipient finds it quite entertaning. I would recommend this based on functionality, plus it looks good and the light ring is pretty neat.

I was really impressed with this little speaker. The sound quality is really good. On a wooden table really gives a nice quality to the music. You can go a good distance from the speaker with your phone and it just carrys on. Only cuts out when walking through doorways if you have thick walls. I’m not to impressed with the radio. Though you can’t really get a good signal where i live anyway. And that’s with the charging cable being used as an airial. And i’m not so keen on the flashing led light show that comes with it. But not to botherd as long as the sound is good.

If you’re expecting something with the room shaking audio of bose soundlink or taotronics 20w speaker you’ll be disappointed but for something that’s less than a tenth the price of bose you get a tiny, lightweight speaker that is solidly built, doesn’t have the tinny pitch of many small speakers and has the best sound of any of its size and price rivals. For anyone who wants a speaker they can pop in a bag for travel or listen round the house it’s ideal and it does get pretty loud without distortion.

For the deal price of just a little over £13, this is value for money and surprisingly well made. No cheap plastics but a nice aluminium body. Sound quality as a speaker is surprising good for its dimunitive size, a sharp crisp sound with no noticeable distortion or buzz, the bass is good enough for the size. This comes with partial charge so you can use out of the box, comes with combined usb/aux cable for charging (no plug). The radio is a joke, mine doesn’t work at all but most people will want this as travel speaker anyway. Gimmicky flashing lights can be switched off easily enough.

Surprised at quality and volume of this mini speaker. Got it out of the box and immediately connected it via bluetooth to my amazon fire tablet. Had to go on-line to tune in the radio part but soon did that. Very pleased with this product so far and good value. ( to tune radio press mode button to radio, make sure usb cable supplied is in and press and hold >|| button in and then press >>| button. Should start finding stations then. Takes a minute to tune in to all available).

Amazing sound from such a tiny speaker. Easy to pair with a phone- clear sound and lasts quite a few hours on a full charge. Just don’t forget to keep your phone within the same room. We only discovered after the party that although you can adjust the volume with the phone, you can make it louder on the actual speaker.

This speaker is a solid weighty product designed and manufactured to the highest quality with a finish without blemish. The sound quality for its size is commensurate or better than some speakers of a larger nature. Sadly i returned this item due to it not having the bluetooth range that i was looking for. It stated ten meters but after five meters it lost its connectivity. Overall though a great solid product and recommended and if kept close by to your proposed bluetooth tie up then you can expect great sounds and satisfaction.

I am very impressed with the sound clarity on this compact bluetooth speaker. I’m so impressed i’ve ordered two more. One to pair up with my echo dot in the kitchen as i feel it has superior sound quality in comparison. The other one i intend to pair up with my amazon fire tablet while i use my currently purchased one as an extension speaker for my laptop. An awesome little speaker at more than a fair price in my opinion.

Seems like a well made item and nice to look at. The after sales service from betron though is very poor. Had an issue which i hoped they would help with. Wrote an email to them and got no reply. Wrote a second email, got a reply, but useless, like a lot companies today, they obviously do not read the message sent properly. Wrote a third time and got no reply useless after sales service.

On arrival i did not think it would do what i wanted it to do. The sound, is totally awesome. Everyone who has visited me have seen & tried it and have said they want one. It’s reasonably priced a a briiliant stocking filler. I will be purchasing one for my daughter as she loves it too.

This speaker is very well manufactured and the sound reproduction is nothing short of superb. So far i’ve tried it out on my phone, laptop and tablet and it works just fine. It doesn’t take long to charge, either, and the usb cable that comes with it gives you the wired option as opposed to the wireless should you prefer it. A friend of mine spent over three times as much on another brand, and now regrets it. This one is light years ahead.

Absolutely brilliantly little speaker.Lights up different colours when music is playing. I’m rubbish with electrical stuff but it’s really easy to use, just switch bluetooth on your phone and click on the speaker and voila the music plays straight through it.

I was so surprised at how good this tiny (and kinda heavy) little speaker sounded that i went ahead and bought one as a gift for a friend almost immediately. I’ve owned mini usb and/or bluetooth speakers before, but none that have packed as much of a punch as this lil’ thing. It’s even a little bit bassy. I took it on a weekend break so that we could listen to music in the room, and now it has replaced the expensive brand-name wifi sound system / speaker in my room, as i only listen to music in my bedroom when things start to get sexy. Which is to say that i mostly just play downtempo chilled out stuff vs. Drum n’ bass, so a £12 speaker does the job pretty much just as good as the £160 one that i was using previously. Obviously it’s nowhere near as good generally, but for the purpose it does a fantastic job and i’d rather pocket the £148 difference.

I’m absolutely over the moon with this piece of kit. It’s very well constructed and is nice and compact, so it’s great to take out in your bag. I also love the colour changing lights on the speaker as you listen to your music. I wasn’t sure how good the sound quality would be as i haven’t used betron before, but i wasn’t disappointed. The balance between stereo and base is just right, no distortion or tinny sounds. I can highly recommend this product. Customer service was fantastic too with super fast delivery.

Bought the netron kbs08 a matter of days ago and before i mention the product can i just say that betron are probably the best company i’ve had dealings with, thank you. The speaker, to be honest i wasn’t expecting great things when being such a very cheaply priced product,, however after contacting the company for advise i had the thing up and running in seconds, so what do toy say of a speaker so small it fits into your pocket with ease??what i say is, the sound that comes from the speaker, bearing in mind you have no sound changing buttons to mess with, is unbelievably good, i was amazed at just how good this was, good deep bass without overpowering and a crystal clear sound. Truly took me by surprise, in fact so much so i purchased another betron speaker for my son. Well done betron in my book you have a winner.

It does the job it claims to with a minimum of fuss. I am not enamoured with the weirdly accented voice that is built in, but the reproduction of my audible books once bluetooth has connected it to the echo dot cannot be faulted. It requires charging more frequently than i expected from the write up, but the 4 hours continuous use that i get is probably as much as i should listen at any one time. Nice to handle, and heavy enough to stay put on any surface.

This is the first bluetooth speaker i’ve ever bought or used. How can that much sound come out of such a tiny thing?. It’s so neat and sounds really good. It feels solid and well made, the controls and bluetooth connection are all easy, i’m definitely happy with it. I would say it’s an excellent speaker for the price. One comment, i bought the ‘titanium’ colour and the photo doesn’t really do the colour justice. So in case you’re wondering about it, the nearest i can describe it is as a glossy gunmetal grey. It’s really smart and i like it.

This beast arrived yesterday, so not had a great deal of time to road test it. However, very impressed so far. The sound quality for a relatively small device is terrific. Pairing the speaker with my phone was extremely quick and straightforward and it came charged up and ready to go out of the box. It looks and feels robust although not exactly light. It’s not ‘heavy’ but i guess not as light as you might expect. One thing that may not be for everyone is the lighting effect round the edge of the speaker which changes colour as you play music. (my wife likes it, i can take it or leave it. ) anyway, in a family full of critics we’d had the speaker paired with 3 different i-phones (1 at a time) within 10 minutes of me trying it out.

The speaker itself is amazing, only things i can say about it are that it could do with a non-slip base on it as when you have something with a lot of bass going it tends to vibrate around and i nearly lost it off the side of the scaffolding i was working on and it does distort a bit at max volume but to be honest i don’t like to have it on that loud in public anyway. Delivery however was a different thing i don’t know if this is amazons fault or the company supplying but the box was open at one end so i could have lost my speaker to the royal mail at anytimeaside from the speaker gives great value for money.

I don’t normally buy two of the same product but i’m so impressed by this little product that i’m thinking of having one for the home as well as work. Nice base sound and the quality is good. Just right for ambient background music but not for having a party or listening to at full pelt but it stood up to a decent noise level. 3w speaker and i found it easy to turn off the lights. They flash different colours repeatedly, i thought you had a choice of which colour to have on as a static light but this is not the case.

Not used this product a lot yet, mainly to be able to listen closer to certain ipad audio, iphone radio, or have some music in the back garden. Had no problems connecting bluetooth from ipad, iphone or mac computer, no dropped connections, range is good. Not used the call/mic, sd card port, 3. Sound volume and quality is as you would expect from a 3w unit of this size. The usb charging cable is quite short. The bottom plastic ring with the buttons doesn’t look premium, but overall the unit has a good weight to it with a good finish, and doesn’t feel flimsy.

Betron KBS08 Wireless Portable Travel tooth Speaker, Best Portable Speaker Ever!

For the deal price of just a little over £13, this is value for money and surprisingly well made. No cheap plastics but a nice aluminium body. Sound quality as a speaker is surprising good for its dimunitive size, a sharp crisp sound with no noticeable distortion or buzz, the bass is good enough for the size. This comes with partial charge so you can use out of the box, comes with combined usb/aux cable for charging (no plug). The radio is a joke, mine doesn’t work at all but most people will want this as travel speaker anyway. Gimmicky flashing lights can be switched off easily enough.

Sound is good from this speaker. I wasnt expecting to be wowed, just wanted something functional for when i am camping. I bought the easyacc speaker case to hold it in too – so glad i did as the speaker has coloured lights (which dont switch off), and are a little annoying when its dark. The case has a mesh top so sound quality is good when in the case, so now i dont have to bear the annoying lights. If anyone knows how to switch them off, or to turn the volume down on the woman giving instructions, do let me know :).

I must confess i had reservations about purchasing a cheap, mono speaker, but it seemed like a good travel solution and was pleasantly surprised though at how good this was. The build quality was more sturdy than expected – the micro sd card slot is a welcome addition too that i didn’t realise it had at the time of purchase. The volume output is more than you would ever need for a hotel room etc and surprisingly for the size of the speaker, the sound is never muffled. Audiophile it is not but is still extremely acceptable. At three times the price, this would still be good value for money.

Comments from buyers

“The best speaker for its size and price, Good quality sound., Cant go wrong for the price :D”

15 it’s good value for money but i can’t see how it’d ever be worth the full list price of £29. The instructions are poorly written, and even taking that into account are still wrong (the socket that’s marked as aux in in the instructions is actually marked with a headphone symbol on the product, and the aux in function actually appears to be accessed via the included usb cable). The device has an annoying electronic voice that can’t be turned off, and i’ve got no idea how the radio function is meant to work. The bluetooth connectivity did work though. Still, it’s reasonably loud for it’s size. I got around three hours out of it at full volume. It’s loud for it’s size, and the audio quality is good for a device this cheap but still isn’t great in the overall scheme of things.

This product has good audio for its size and plenty of functions, pairing with your phone is very easy, although pairing a second device requires disconnecting the first one. Below average battery life compounded by the use of a switch to turn it on, so if you forget to turn it off, it won’t go on standby or anything. Loud voice response with heavy chinese accent to your selections, which cannot be disabled. Volume always resets itself. The company will nag you repeatedly by email for a review with no opt-out/unsubscribe options. They probably regret that now.

For the money, it isn’t too bad. However, i bought this for my car as a hands free device but the mic is very poor and ultimately, not fit for purpose. Good:the bluetooth connected with out issuesturdy, solid builddescent soundcoloured leds are pretty cooloption to turn led on/off (hold menu button)very user friendlybadradio is hit and missmic is very pooroverall. It is not bad for the money and handy when out working/camping etc but although happy enough, i would prefer x-mini.

Seems like a well made item and nice to look at. The after sales service from betron though is very poor. Had an issue which i hoped they would help with. Wrote an email to them and got no reply. Wrote a second email, got a reply, but useless, like a lot companies today, they obviously do not read the message sent properly. Wrote a third time and got no reply useless after sales service.

On arrival i did not think it would do what i wanted it to do. The sound, is totally awesome. Everyone who has visited me have seen & tried it and have said they want one. It’s reasonably priced a a briiliant stocking filler. I will be purchasing one for my daughter as she loves it too.

This bluetooth speaker works very well, and sounds great; but the voice prompts for ‘change of state’ are much to loud (as far as i can see they can not be turned down in volume), ie. ‘bluetooth connect’, and ‘bluetooth disconnected’, etc. If you use it at night, the prompts can wake you up. I have mailed the manufactories and they are going to pass the comment onto their developers. Also the instructions supplied with it are not that useful, in that they don’t explain how to use all its function. Other than that it is a good product imo.

Great sound from a neat little unit which is heavier than you expect so feels substantial despite small size. It makes a good sound but not very loud just quite loud but good enough for what i want it for. Its not going to be loud enough for a big party or where there is a lot of background noise but if you want to do that buy a bose but for a fraction of the price this is a good little unit for travel.

I am very impressed with the sound clarity on this compact bluetooth speaker. I’m so impressed i’ve ordered two more. One to pair up with my echo dot in the kitchen as i feel it has superior sound quality in comparison. The other one i intend to pair up with my amazon fire tablet while i use my currently purchased one as an extension speaker for my laptop. An awesome little speaker at more than a fair price in my opinion.

Absolutely brilliantly little speaker.Lights up different colours when music is playing. I’m rubbish with electrical stuff but it’s really easy to use, just switch bluetooth on your phone and click on the speaker and voila the music plays straight through it.

I have compared it with a more expensive bluetooth speaker that was 99 pounds and you do notice a quality difference. That said for the price i think it’s the best speaker you can get. It is surprisingly small but works really well and has a noticeable bass as well. I use it every morning just after i wake up to put some music on to start the day and i haven’t noticed any change in battery life after 6 months so far.

This thing is the the closest thing to actual magic i have ever seen. I did not expect a lot, just wanted a wireless speaker to play music. I charged it up for a bit, looked for it in the settings in my iphone, clicked on it and it immediately played music from my phone really beautifully while sitting in the palm of my hand. The sound quality for such a small and easy to use device is very impressive. I love the disc lights toofor this money you cannot go wrongit’s magic. Update: it connects to my mac too. I can now listen to music wirelessly anywhere in my (very small) home.

This speaker is a solid weighty product designed and manufactured to the highest quality with a finish without blemish. The sound quality for its size is commensurate or better than some speakers of a larger nature. Sadly i returned this item due to it not having the bluetooth range that i was looking for. It stated ten meters but after five meters it lost its connectivity. Overall though a great solid product and recommended and if kept close by to your proposed bluetooth tie up then you can expect great sounds and satisfaction.

This a great little speaker and agree with other reviews that sound is very goodi have tested it with a samsung galaxy s2 , tesco hudl and an ostech tablet with no problem on any of the devices. As stated in other reviews the voice announcing each mode as they are selected via the mode button is very loud and very annoying (can anybody hack this it to turn it off). It does seem though that from some of the reviews people are annoyed as they are continually changing modes but i wonder why. I have seen questions asked of how the volume is controlled and the answers been “from the connected device”. This is true when in bluetooth mode but when using the micro sd card the volume is controlled using the plus and minus buttons on the device. One slight shortcoming is there is no indication of the level of battery charge, the speaker just suddenly switches off when the battery becomes empty. I leave it plugged in when using it if possible though on battery it lasts several hours on a full chargei have found that sometimes i need to go into the controlling device and press the speaker name in the list of bluetooth devices before it will connect even if it was paired previously this seems to be true if the speaker has been previously connected to a different device. Mostly it just connects when it senses the device. Another added advantage is being able to use the speaker as “hands free device” to answer phone calls as where i live has a terrible phone signal i could leave the phone on the window sill and have the speaker on my desk. However at the moment i can’t answer the phone by pressing the phone button on the speaker.

Amazing sound from such a tiny speaker. Easy to pair with a phone- clear sound and lasts quite a few hours on a full charge. Just don’t forget to keep your phone within the same room. We only discovered after the party that although you can adjust the volume with the phone, you can make it louder on the actual speaker.

I was really impressed with this little speaker. The sound quality is really good. On a wooden table really gives a nice quality to the music. You can go a good distance from the speaker with your phone and it just carrys on. Only cuts out when walking through doorways if you have thick walls. I’m not to impressed with the radio. Though you can’t really get a good signal where i live anyway. And that’s with the charging cable being used as an airial. And i’m not so keen on the flashing led light show that comes with it. But not to botherd as long as the sound is good.

Great gadget – produces good sound so now we can listen to our music on the go. So far just in the garden but you can charge it up and take it anywhere with you. Links to your phone by bluetooth without problems. Nice and loud – turn your phone to maximum sound and then you can use the betron controls to get the required volume. Also has traditional fm radio and controls on the base if your phone is in your bag and you want to change to next or previous track. Apparently it can channel calls from your phone too but have yet to test that. Lights cycle through all different colours changing every couple of seconds or so. We love this and i would recommend it.

It seems to work well and produces good quality sound. When on maximum volume it can be quite loud (especially considering it’s size). One thing i didn’t know before buying is that there is an automated voice which speaks (in questionable automated english) when you change the settings from bluetooth to aux etc. I know this would have annoyed me as it seems you cannot remove this feature. But thankfully the recipient finds it quite entertaning. I would recommend this based on functionality, plus it looks good and the light ring is pretty neat.

This speaker does just what you want. Easy connectivity, linked easily with my phone and amazon echo and looks pleasingly like a mini version of that system.

Amazing i was doubtful buying this but i’m so pleased the quality and sound is wonderful so good i bought a further 2 for other family members i bought red black and white i love the fact it is portable charge is really good i use mine all day bass is super got it linked to phone and tablet 10/10 what a bargain next day delivery with prime even better buy one you wont regret it ✔.

If you’re expecting something with the room shaking audio of bose soundlink or taotronics 20w speaker you’ll be disappointed but for something that’s less than a tenth the price of bose you get a tiny, lightweight speaker that is solidly built, doesn’t have the tinny pitch of many small speakers and has the best sound of any of its size and price rivals. For anyone who wants a speaker they can pop in a bag for travel or listen round the house it’s ideal and it does get pretty loud without distortion.

I bought this last year and it still works well, i didn’t want to review too soon in case it broke, but it has worked fine for about 7/8 months now. I don’t tend to take it to places with me so, i can’t account for how well it will stand up to getting knocked about in a bag. The voice announcing that the speaker is on or connected to bluetooth is really loud, but it’s a good little speaker for a reasonable price, the voice isn’t a dealbreaker for me.
