Advantages: Small, portable, loud (for size)
Disadvantages: Can't think of any
The X-Mini II is the first X-Mini product I have ever bought. But honestly, I was surprised of the sound quality/loudness from the first song I played.
I bought it as I wanted to play a bit of music while out and about with my friends, it has already served us well and I've only had it for around 2 months.
So, how does it arrive?
The X-Mini II arrives in a small box, containing the speaker itself, the USB charging cable and a small instruction booklet (which to be honest, you don't need). They are so kind, they even include a nice small pouch for you to keep the speaker in when on the move.
The speaker itself is very portable. It's about the size of a golf ball, tiny. But the sound you get from this tiny speaker, is amazing! You have two options with this speaker, open or closed. Having it open will give you a louder sound, with more bass to it. All you have to do to open it is twist the speaker capsule.
You charge the speaker with the same cable that is used to plug it into your MP3/iPod. When charging you have small LED indicator lights. Red means it's charging. Blue when it is charged/when the speaker is on.
The X-Mini II speaker gives around 10/11 hours of continuous playback from one single charge. The battery is only 5V, so the charge time isn't that long. Around 2 to 3 hours, which is pretty impressive for the amount of time you get out of it!
There is a very small mini jack attached to the speaker, allowing it to connect to virtually any music playing device. This cable is very small, but as previously stated the USB cable also has a jack allowing a longer cable.
Overall, great speaker for how small it is. Definitely worth the investment.
Summary: Definitely worth purchasing one of these speakers!
