i have been an owner of this mbs 100 from the w850i to the w580i and the nokia 6280 and now the w395, and the speaker has always performed, everyone moans about sound quality, guys you need to remember it depends on the fone and its setting and the mp3 as to the quality.
i have ordered the mbs 200 and shall leave a review wen it arrives.
ive had the speaker for a year and i no everything about it. in sony ericsons, u want to jump straight on the equalizer and manualy do it. becareful with the base as u can damage it or suck the battery dry.
make sur stereo widening of off as its only a single speaker.
Thier is a trick to get this speaker to be loud with the nokia 6280. first, connect the speaker to the handset, while playing a song, turn off the bluetooth speaker and wait for it to say disconnected on the fone.
now turn the volume right down on the handset, and turn the speaker back on. now ur volume will be louder at its quietest seting allowing you to achive a much hiher volume :D might have to do this a couple times on ur first atempt. i garentee you now this speaker will blow your mind then! had 6 hrs out of it at full tilt, mind u it does get hot in summer like this.
as for the nokia, the n95 and high end LG, they for some reason only play at one volume, no idea why, and its not that loud, yet better than standard speaker. i think the speaker has software issues.
If you order one, make sure you post to let me kno how u get on, i am intrested :) oh btw unless its the new ipone software it will not connect to this. and even then its no better than the n95, stil a bit quiet.
