It’s surprisingly good for a speaker so small. It is definitely better than the sound you probably get from your mobile devices, and is pretty loud as well. It isn’t particularly tinny either; white noise is less of an issue with this speaker than with speakers that come in mobiles. Additionally, there is no distortion even when rapidly increasing volume.
Ease of Set Up
It pairs extremely easily. Charging is a cinch with a USB jack and cable provided, and if you want to listen to music sans Bluetooth, the aux input is easy enough to find.
Cambridge Soundworks is brilliant with customer service, replacing duds before a customer even realizes it, and actually answering the phone unlike some other companies.
It really is incredibly portable. Not only does its size make it easy to move around, but its battery life is an astounding ten hours, making it continuously usable for an entire working day.
As mentioned before there’s plenty of good stuff about the sound quality, but there also is some to be desired. The bass can get weak, and the highs and lows aren’t as crisp as they could be. It’s got limited volume range too. Also, noticeable white noise is emitted if both the USB jack and the line input are engaged.
Volume control is a little quirky. Volume gets much higher with the line in than with the Bluetooth connection, and for the latter the source audio must be made pretty loud before streaming. However the volume controls work while receiving the Bluetooth signals only. The maximum and minimum volumes aren’t clearly demarcated – a strange oversight.
The speaker lacks the ability to automatically shift from line in to Bluetooth and vice versa. When connected at the aux input, it cannot stream via Bluetooth.
All in all, for the astonishingly low price this is a great way to spruce up your working atmosphere with clear, but not overwhelming background music. Click Here To Read Customer Reviews on Amazon
