A Powerful Little Speaker!
I recieved this mini speaker today. It's mini indeed! I have given it a fair test already and am very happy and impressed. I tried it quite a lot at high volume and gave myself a bit of an earache! The sound doees fill the room and has a lot of impact, yet at the same time delivers clarity and quality of sound across the range with only slight distortion at extreme levels with some kinds of music. At full volume, I could hear it comfortably at the back of the house from the front. I even had the funny thought of getting complaints from the neighbours! I would have told them it is a tiny portable speaker, they would have come in for a demonstration, been suitably impressed and said 'I'm getting one of those!' There are two sound levels, with the on switch in the middle position giving a lower volume output. Turning the two parts of the case in opposite directions allows the speaker to be opened and extended a little. This adjusts the sound from a more focussed sound from the top to a slightly more widely propagating sound from the sides as well. The only limitation I see is the very short length of the 3.5 mm jack cable. Not a problem for instance having your mp3 player right next to it when plugged in, but maybe awkward in other situations when you need the speaker further from the socket you are connecting to. Easily solved by the purchase of a single (or double) output extension cable at absolutely minimal cost. The cost of the speaker itself made it a real baragin. I won't give the price I paid, but let's just say it was exactly half of a hard-earnt tenner. The Veho 360 Portable Speaker is an excellent mini speaker and I am confident you will make the right choice and then agree with me!
