Excerpt: I’m indiscriminately attracted to portable electronics. That’s why I added hamburger speakers or capsule speakers, whatever they’re called, into my office wish-list. I didn’t mind something that came from CD-R king, I heard they’re selling their own at a cheaper expense.
Excerpt: As far as portable speakers go, not many can match the price and product of the X-Mini II speaker. Selling at a base of 29.99, but easily found for less on the web, it’s an alluring little piece of technology that goes a long way.
Summary: I don't know if this a knock off or what. The all black model (GSI X-mini 2) I bought years ago was way better than this. The volume control on this is horrible. When you turn the volume up, the sound cuts off, you have to fiddle with it to find that sweet spot where sound is actually produced.
Excerpt: I received this X-Mini II speaker for Christmas and didn't have high hopes for it. I've had many portable speakers which have frankly been quite rubbish and sound like the music is in a different room! This is totally the opposite! WOW!!! You won't believe that sound is coming from such a small device. The speaker is extremely compact and takes up minimal room and is easy to carry about.
Excerpt: Ok, not my windows, but it did blow my mind away, and every friend I had and heard this little thing turned on, was just as amazed. It is an amazing little "toy" indeed. I got it about a year and a half ago when I did not yet have my 2.1 system, but I did need something for my laptop with some extra punch in the sound. First of all, here's a wee secret. If you happen to want to buy this for under £10, because you'll see some offer God knows where, restrain yourself.
Excerpt: My brother used to have 3 of these little bad boys which he would connect up to each other and use for his phone. After hearing how good the sound quality was i decided to get my boyfriend one, you can get them in many different colours but the black and red was the cheapest (i think it was about £12) so i went for that one. He absolutely loves it, when using it you cant tell from the sound that it is such a small speaker.
Excerpt: The X-Mini II Why buy X-Mini II I have a Sony MP3 player and until quite recently it was near impossible to find speakers for the player. Oddly enough Sony made docking systems for iPod players but not for their own brand -- not that were available in the UK at any rate. There are a few available now but all too late. The X I was going to have the subtitle of The XX because I like the band but thought it may be misleading. I own two of the illustrated X-Mini's.
