You definitely cannot go wrong with this beautifully designed Bluetooth speaker made by Inateck. The first thing I noticed when I opened the box was how attractive this speaker really is. It’s small enough to carry around with you (especially if you’re a frequent traveller), yet large enough to hold a good set of quality speakers. This device features:
- Call and play/pause button
- Rubber feet
- Retractable stand
- iPhone/iPad holder
- Auxiliary input
- Micro-USB charging
I first connected the speaker to a USB port on my computer to charge the built-in rechargeable battery. The battery came from the factory almost completely charged, so it didn’t take long for it to fully charge.
I then turned on Bluetooth on my iPhone 5s. The phone did a search for available Bluetooth devices (like normal) and quickly found the Inateck Bluetooth speaker. I paired the speaker to the phone, and the two paired up pretty much immediately.
I played a few songs from my Spotify playlist to test out the sound and quality of the speakers on this device. The sound quality was outstanding; it was much better than I had expected, in fact.
As a final test I plugged the speakers into my laptop’s audio jack using the audio cable that was included with the device. I found that the audio cable was a little on the short side, which limits the distance the device is from your computer or whatever device you’re connecting it to (but, what do you expect with wired technology). With that being said, the sound was still extremely phenomenal.
I was also really impressed with the volume that this speaker is capable of. In fact, I had to end up lowering the volume due to the fact that it was just too loud for my taste (keep in mind though, I was in the same room as the device). However, this would come in handy if you wanted to project the sound throughout your whole house. Even at the maximum volume there was no distortion whatsoever to the sound quality. To say the least, I was very impressed with this 10W stereo speaker system.
If you’re looking for a high-quality, yet extremely affordable Bluetooth stereo speaker ($29.99 in the US), I strongly recommend that you check this one out and let me know what you think. Granted, you’re not going to get the same great audio quality as you’d get from a $100-$300 speaker, but for its price point and size, it’s difficult not to recommend it. It’s fantastic value for money.
As an added bonus, this particular Inateck Bluetooth speaker allows you to hold your iOS device at a fairly comfortable viewing angle and also has a retractable stand, making it even more durable and sturdy.
