I was looking for a portable speaker with just the right level of power and portability and I found it in this cool little number from Philips.
I’ve heard a number of more expensive models in action and though admittedly, this one isn’t massively loud, it offers more than enough volume for most situations apart perhaps from a very noisy party in a large room.
It doesn’t lose clarity when you turn it up either and though I’m no audiophile, I could tell straight away that it offered a good balance of frequencies, having tested it with everything from electro pop to thrash metal.
One important thing to note though, the volume control on the unit is not massively responsive and the majority of volume control should be done from the device you are streaming from. NFC makes pairing with your device easy and you don’t need the very latest tech to get results, as my relatively long in the (blue) tooth Galaxy S2 mini had no problems connecting. I also liked the fact that it’s pretty small and light and can be stood upright, so it’s great if you only have a small footprint of space to stand it in.
Pros: Ease to use, Good build quality, Looks good, Value for money
