Showing 1-10 of 142
Full sound in a handy size
23 May 2014
Excerpt: This was exactly the product I was looking for. I like to listen to podcasts while I do chores around the house. Dragging my iPad around is clumsy and the iPad sound is too weak. I can put the JBL speaker in my shirt pocket, or even hang it around my neck with a lanyard and have sound as I putter around. It's also very good for classical music; nice, rich, true sound quality for a very small device.
Pros: Easy to connect, Easy To Hang From Lanyard, Full Accurate Sound, Louder Than Ipad Or Phone, Pocket sized
Excerpt: Absolutely amazed at the sound quality of this small speaker. I use it mostly for listening to classical music in combination with my laptop. Even a cappella is flawless. Often take it with me on international travel, where I use it in training sessions, including audio with video clips. It's loud enough and bluetooth lets me position it anywhere I want. My audience/tech support is often amazed at its performance.
Pros: Battery Life, Portability, price, Sound quality, Streaming To Tuner
Compared JBL Micro Wireless, HDMX XT, Photive Cyren, and Amazon Basics Bluetooth Speaker
21 May 2014
Summary: I wasn't sure which speaker was the best for me. I have great stereo speakers at home, so my intended use was just to have something portable, small, convenient. I am by no means an "audiophile," but I cringe when I hear bad sounding music. I first compared JBL Micro Wireless vs. HDMX XT (smaller category), then Photive Cyren v. Amazon Basics Bluetooth Speaker (larger category). In comparing, I used various songs from various genres: country, reggae, hip-hop, edm.
Summary: This JBL speaker is not the loudest handheld speaker you can get. However, it works for me. I clip it to my pants or bag when I hike and it does just fine streaming my music from my smart phone. Don't expect to use this as a sound system for a party. If you just need something louder than the built in speaker on your cell phone, well here you go. It connects easy and the sounds is loud enough to hear the highs, mids, and lows.
Summary: Initially I was hesitating to buy a mini bluetooth speaker as I believed it would be a waste of money. However, this speaker changed my mind. As the portable devices we own (phones, tablets, laptops) is ever expanding a high-quality bluetooth speaker that you can carry always with you becomes handy especially for people who usually listen to music/radio or watch movies in their portable devices.
Summary: I go a little crazy looking at the reviews on some items here trying to sort through good/bad. This little speaker looked like a winner and I agree. It has great sound and has worked flawlessly since day one.
Summary: I like this speaker. I have a Cambridge Oontz Curve too (which I also think is worth the money, especially for its volume), but I think this speaker is worth the difference in price. The bass won't knock your socks off, but I think the balance and clarity across the acoustic spectrum is well worth the money.
