Advantages: Brilliant bass and cool design
Disadvantages: Not that I can think of
I love listening to music. Usually I use headphones as not to disturb my roommates and neighbours. However, sometimes I find myself wanting to blast the tunes at high volumes and take a break. When I saw these XMI X-mini II speakers, I realised that I have found the best speakers.
The XMI X-mini II is a mini capsule speaker that is in tiny pocket-sizes. To be honest, the appearance alone is enough for me to spend my money on them. It's a novelty product in terms of speakers available on the market, this combined with great reviews on amazon.co.uk made me purchase these speakers for the price of around £15.00, including postage. Note that these mini speakers are also available in a variety of colours from red, pink, green to black and white. The one I have is purple and it is the 2nd generation speakers of X-mini range. The material of the speaker feels like a mixture between felt and rubber, which allows good stability on most surfaces. The look of these speakers are very sleek and contemporary, and it fits well on my desk.
According to the manufacturer's description, improvements have been made to the 2nd generation design that includes a 40 mm driver to deliver better and richer sounds. Since I don't own the previous generation product, I can't say for sure whether the improvement is delivered. However, from my experience with the 2nd generation product, I can certainly say that the sound quality and performance are more than satisfactory and exceeds my expectation from this tennis-ball sized speakers. The bass of these speakers are very impressive, and they are loud enough so that I usually use these speakers mostly when I'm by myself in the house or when I'm having a small party with friends.
The speakers are very easy and durable. It has a built-in battery which can be charged by connecting to a computer via a USB port. The time taken to fully the battery is not long at all, usually takes me about 1 hour to charge but this is when the battery low. The description says that the battery can support continuous playback lasting 11 hours; I have yet to try this out myself. However, I usually use these speakers for 1 hour on average each day and I can go without charging the batter for a week. Also it has a bulit-in 3.5 mm standard audio connection cable to make it more user-friendly. Therefore, it is so easy to play music from my computer, ipod, phone and any devices that has a 3.5 mm jack port.
Another cool feature of this product is that this can be interconnected with other X-mini speakers to create a louder, grander sound for large parties. I have yet to try this out myself because I don't know anyone who has these speakers. If anyone is looking to buy speakers, this product is something I would recommend with certainty. The price is very reasonable and the performance of this product makes every penny worth.
Thank you for reading. :) x
