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.
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
Conclusion: We rather like the second-generation Jabra Solemate. It's small, portable, has ample battery life and in addition to its distinctive design can pump out clear and loud audio. Don't expect too much bass, though, as the small scale hinders how well it will perform with the low-end frequencies.
Pros: Small scale, quirky design, clear audio, Bluetooth and NFC connectivity, ample battery life, simple USB charging
Cons: Not much bass, still expensive, poor voice call connectivity, Bluetooth 3.0 not 4, sound strongest from one side only
Excerpt: The JabraSolemate is a small portable speaker capable of being totally wireless, it can be connected via Bluetooth or 3.5mm lead and as it runs on a solid battery does not even require a mains lead so here a small speaker that really can claim to be ‘wireless’.
Conclusion: The Solemate is small, compact, idea for travelling, and comes with a handy carry case that doesn't affect performance so you can chuck it around on the beach and not worry too much about getting it dirty. Where the Solemate falls short is in the voice calling capabilities. It is really bad.
Pros: Small, Sounds good, Wired and wireless connectivity, long battery life, looks funky
Cons: Handsfree option is rubbish, struggles with more bassy tracks
Conclusion: Vill man ha en liten högtalare som tål att hänga med ut så är Solemate en trevlig reskamrat. Inkopplingen är enkel tack vare NFC och röstmeddelanden hjälper dig på vägen. Mobil-appen innehåller ljudförbättrande funktioner och låter dig ställa in ljudet som du vill ha det.
Summary: Hvis man vil have en lille højttaler, der kan tåle at blive taget med ud, så er Jabra Solemate en behagelig ledsager. Opkobling er let takket være NFC, og stemmemeddelelser hjælper dig igennem. Mobil-app’en indeholder lydforbedrende funktioner og lader dig justere lyden, som du vil have den.
