When i first got this device, i was surprised to see how big and heavy it was, it weighs over 500g and is as big as an outstretched hand.
What you get is, NFC, BT, AUDIO-IN, it works great on battery or connected
It uses BL-5C battery that is screwed in (standard screwdriver) at the bottom of the device.
The device itself is simple, a Bluetooth button on the front bottom which changes colours and is used for status and pairing the device.
Volume up and down keys, and power, charging and audio in.
It has an air vent at the bottom side of the right.
Sound comes from the top of the speaker, with a NFC panel at the front top of the device.
The N9 paired within seconds via NFC which made connecting it seamless, audio flowed several seconds after
At first audio quality didn’t seem good, but i found the secret was to have the Play 360° at maximum volume and control the volume (if possible) from the device.
I found doing it that way, made it sound better with far more clarity and base.
I found the device to have much better quality than the MD-7W, it could be used further and sounded just as good with any device i tested with it.
The rechargeable battery meant it could be used for a very long time and could be easily replaced or charged.
When you have two the real magic starts, they talk to each other and define which is the right channel and which is the left, it fills up the room with surround sound, if you thought one had amazing sound wait until you hear the sound from two, its breath taking.
Although $150 is a big ask for a speaker, it does offer alot of value for money, and the sound quality alone is worth it.
