Summary: PROS -- Solid (I've dropped them twice and the speakers still work) -- Great sound for spoken word, TV shows, movies, etc. -- Good battery life and easy to charge -- Highly portable -- Works with almost anything -- laptop, desktop, MP3 player, whatever -- Great volume for a mini-system CONS -- Overall OK sound for music, but great for their size -- The price is kind of high, especially if you can get by with a mono (single) speaker These aren't made to compete with...
Summary: What happened to the on speaker volume control? This would have made them incredible. Good sound they need a strong way to attach in one another so when you move it, its not 3 parts connected by wires.
Summary: These X-Mini MAX portable speakers come in a pair. They are the type that expand in the middle, accordion-style, to enhance the sound. You can use one speaker by itself or string them together by using the daisy-chain cable stored neatly underneath each speaker. You charge them via the included USB cable and they seem to play about 6 hours on one charge. There are a couple of unique features that I found interesting.
Summary: I get a lot of use out of these, but only one at a time. To me, the setup sent in this package misses the point... I can't figure out who their target audience would be. I mean, they're portable, yet they come with a less than straight forward cable set up. And if I'm looking for something portable, one speaker is about all I'm carrying. Not that it's hard to figure out the cables, it's just a big inconvenience to set up when on the go.
Summary: Sound quality is most impressive. I used them on a camping trip and plugged them into my cell phone. Sounded great, Though this will eat your cell phone battery fairly quick. Would be better to use with a MP3 player or I-pod. I definitely recommend them!
Summary: I got the dark grey set and they are not going to wow anyone with their sleek appearance. But they are very small (each one is smaller than a tennis ball but larger than a golf ball)...easy to carry. You can hook them up directly to a speaker plug as well. The sound is very good considering the size, but it is weak compared to the boom I get from my much larger external speakers I have on my desktop.
Summary: I've tried several of X-mini's products, and each has been an incremental improvement on the last. First was the X-mini 2, which was light, plasticky and reasonably good sounding. Then I got the Uno, which has a new ceramic driver and metal base. Better, still lacking in the bass department (as you'd expect for something so small), but still pretty impressive for price and size. The one thing I didn't care for with both of these was the mono sound channel.
Summary: For my everyday use (watching news online, listening to music online, etc.), these speakers are great. Very portable. The sound quality is good and adequately loud. However, I can see how having two speakers and multiple cables can be confusing to some people. Overall, I am very happy with them and would recommend.
Summary: These handy little speakers are easy to store, portable and they pack a pretty decent sound. Each one collapses for storage, and opens up for a bigger sound. They clip together back to back using the magnets from the speakers. Then, along with their charging and connecting cord, they fit nicely into the included bag. The sound is surprisingly big - not just loud, but with a fairly broad range in the lows and the highs - and clean, for such small speakers.
Summary: I thought I could hook these speakers up with just the usb cable like a pair of usb headphones. An audio cable is needed. A 6 inch audio cable is attached to the end of the usb cable that plugs into the computer. This 6 inch tail is where the volume control slider is. This is an inconvenient place. I was planning to plug the speakers into a usb hub.
