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)
