Meet Your Soulmate, the Jabra Solemate Bluetooth Speaker – Review
2 weeks ago
Summary: It’s obvious that Jabra is looking to nip at Jawbone’s Jambox heels with their freshman Bluetooth speaker. The construction of the Solemate is solid, the sound quality is above par, and connectivity is a breeze. What more could you ask for?
Pros: Great design, voice guidance feature is neat, easy to use and set-up, very good sound quality for its size, perfect beach or party companion, Jabra really thought of everything.
Excerpt: IF IT ain’t broke, don’t fix it, or so they say, and with the latest version of the Jabra Solemate, the company has taken this adage to heart — apart from different colours and one feature, this Solemate looks much like its predecessor.
Pros: Easy pairing; long battery life; microphone quality is good.
Review – Bluetooth Speakers from Cambridge Sound Works OontZ XL and Jabra Solemate
22 December 2013
Excerpt: Bluetooth speakers are all the rage. Most promise the same thing - great audio, room-filling sound, long battery life, cool styling, and a few other features. But the main job is to allow you to share tunes with friends, family, and of course to overpower anyone nearby who may be listening to Justin...
Excerpt: In recent months we tested a number of portable speakers. Especially the wireless Bluetooth manage to raise some eyebrows around the office from time to time, but they're so expensive that we can't really recommend them without any reservations.
Summary: Jabra's Solemate Bluetooth speaker has a fun, kitschy design and it can pump out a fair amount of volume. However, while this $199 speaker delivers passable sound for music that has light bass, tracks with deeper bass sounded distorted.
Summary: Not all Bluetooth speakers look as good as this. The trick in this case is that the design is pretty much inspired by some sporty piece of footwear! The review unit that we received was the black and yellow colour combo, and quote frankly, it looked brilliant.
Pros: Very well-built, Unique and eye-catching design, Good sound quality for most music, Works well as a speakerphone, Acceptable battery life, 'Sound bag' is a rather useful add-on
Cons: Sound distortion at high volumes, Packaging is too elaborate
Jabra SOLEMATE The Ultimate Portable Speaker Review
11 November 2012
Conclusion: As mentioned in the beginning we used the SOLEMATE for just over 20 days both during a trip to the countryside and while writing other reviews since that's pretty much the only time when there's no external noise.
Summary: The Jabra Solemate has a few small shortcomings, but overall it's a very solid compact Bluetooth speaker with a unique design.
Pros: The, is a compact, well-constructed Bluetooth speaker with an eye-catching design, decent sound and battery life, and speakerphone capabilities. It comes with a water-resistant "sound bag" and has a hideaway line-in cable for connecting non-Bluetooth devices.
Cons: The Solemate could cost a little less and it doesn't sound great at high volumes.
