XMI X-mini II
Advantages: Size, sound, design
This is my first Xmini product and I was bought it for my birthday from some friends. I believe it was around £10. Mine comes in red which is my favourite colour so it was nice that they got the choice of colours to personalise it to the person a bit. It really is very small and I always just whack it in my handbag to take to the park or to picnics. I even use it in bed for listening to audio books. It plugs in to every device I have - my iphone, ipod, laptops. The sound quality is very good and the volume is very loud for such a tiny thing. I'm amazed at whoever designed it!
When you aren't using it its small and round and closed and the wire fits nicely in the little grooce underneath so it packs away really neatly. when you want to use it you pull the wire out, twist the middle of the speaker so it pops out like in the photo on this page. This is presumably to allow for a more bass-y sound. The top of the speake itself is quite fragile but it is protected by that plastic part which says Xmini. I have taken this on holiday to the beach and it has, unfortunately, been covered in sand many times but it still works good ad new! If my friends and I bring ours out together then we plug one in to an ipod then plug them all in to each other like a dasiy-chain of speakers to get even more loud and surround sound!
Really good and practical speaker, I don't know what I did before having it!!
Summary: low-cost, durable loud little speaker with a sexy modern design!
