SimplyVibe V3 5BPS Portable Speaker Rechargeable
For a tiny speaker that fits into your pocket, this one packs a hefty punch, and I DO mean it.
It fits with in my pocket, together with my Sansa c250-v1 (read my separate review there), and I think they were 'meant' for each other. Turn on the player, set the speaker on high, press shuffle, play and get back to work. Yeehaw.
- 'Proprietary' USB-to-TRS cable. Now if I could find the circuit schematic for this speaker, I might find a workaround. But then, if you lose the cable, tough luck. You're gonna get stuck with the microSD port and load your music there.
- Device hangs when using the microSD slot to play stuff. It hangs once in a while when you load really large files. However, turning off and on (the device) seems to clear this up.
- No visible screws for maintenance access. I fix stuff all the time, so this one's a no-no for me.
However, don't let the cons let you down. This little fellow can play my music at a high volume with minimal distortion for 4-5 hours, so that should even things out.
