 The best portible speaker, also has intresting secrets!

First of all id like to say to all those people who where considering buying this when it was 12.99, You just Missed a STEAL!!!
they use the outer shelling as the sub, and they are very durable, providing your not physichally trying to tear it apart.
I would recommend more than one of these at least and youll never need a stereo again as they can be endlessly chained off.

One thing noones ever mentioned though is how you can use its charge cable as a 3.5mm jack extension for its tiny cable on the bottom. why doesnt anyone mention this?????

Purchased a pair of these on saturday, one came on wednesday, the other on thursday, (yeah, i know, it came on christmas eve).
On wednesday, i had this speaker, i ripped open the box and instantly wacked this baby into my nokia 5800, and i was blown away buy its quality! seemed a little bit on the quiet side compared to my mbs 200 but louder than the mbs 100, later on i found out that it was because of the crappy nokia mp3 player. (read below for alternitives)
That was, until it hit the mp3 player & XFI titanium sound card!!!

Im known for my portible speakers, and bass on the move and have been for 2 years, now this has changed everything!!
Everyone wanted an mbs 100 as they sounded good, everyone wanted the mbs 200 cause it was loud, Now people are buying these just because of the sheer volume and clarity! and BASS!

Incredibly loud! and a second one on the chain was so loud my ears popped if i stood any closer than a metre! i DJ, and im telling you, these sound like 100W standard stereo speakers! its crazy!
Then i put it on the outter box it came in (play.com postage boxing) and thier was EVEN MORE BASS!! when you put these things on cardboard of a hollow surface they sound just like a sub!

For the battery life, put it this way, i had the pair of them blairing on thursday after the second one came, played it from 9AM - 11PM, battery wasnt really showing much signs of fatigue, and again today, at FULL BLAST! im confussed as to how a 400 MAH battery could last so long on something so tiny and LOUD!
They have some weight to them, so you know thiers quality, yet the bass from these things will have it dancing acrosss your desk!

Now for the intresting bit, other than noticing how small they where i had a bright idea, i linked this up to my mbs 100 (also should be able to do it on the mbs 200), and the next day chained a pair of it, meaning i had bluetooth on the X-mini 2!!!! their is a noticeable quality difference on bluetooth, but its not that bad.

ALLL nokia users should consider power mp3 as an alternitive to the quiet nokia mp3 music player, its free, and thiers a BIG difference in sound from an x-mini 2 (power mp3 for s60v3 and up)

 Amazing piece of kit.

This little gizmo is far more effective then i initially thought. Reading reviews i saw people were saying that it was a good speaker, until you own one, you can't appreciate how good quality and design these little speakers are. I have one at the moment, and upon seeing these my brother purchased two. i will definitely be buying at least one more in the future. Great little accessory for holidays and i'm looking forward to summer with these. GREAT BUY ALL IN ALL =).

 Perfect.

Bring on the summer, perfect speaker for out in the sun with friends, perfect sound quality. Goes loud enough for my parents to tell me to turn it down. :) 5 Star Well Deserved.

 Cannot recommend this enough

This little speaker is an absolute gem.

I bought one for a weekend camping on the beach, based on the reviews on here, and wasn't disappointed in the slightest.

Taking it straight out of the box, without charging, we used it everytime we felt like it over the two days and the battery lasted fine.

The sound quality & volume it generates are amazing for something so small. Truly, truly excellent. Even better when you factor in the price. We were using it on the beach, with the wind & ocean noise in the background, and still didn't need it turned up to full volume.

Having gotten home, I've also realised you can charge it through an iPod mains charger (if you have one), and don't want to use your computer USB port just to charge a speaker.

Buy one. Or two. They're brilliant.

 Punches well above it's weight.

I bought this speaker to use with my mp3 player/phone so I can listen to music in the park with friends during the nice weather, rather than carry large speakers with us or rely on the tinny sound of phone speakers.
The sound quality is very good, and it also goes quite loud--much louder then I would ever need! The bass is quite strong, and can vibrate some surfaces. The build quality is very high--I expect it to survive the occasional knock in transit.
In the box you get a USB charger, with a 3.5mm audio jack to you can charge it from your computer and listen to music. You also receive a carry pouch.
The only negative was the size of the box play.com sent it in, massively oversized.
