XMI X-mini II
Advantages: Small, portable but powerful and high quality. Very well priced and range of colours.
Disadvantages: N/A - Simply a little gem!
*What is it?*
The X-Mi Mini II is a small portable speaker. It's truly tiny at about 7cm wide and tall however it boasts a secret weapon in that it pops open a further 4/5cm to increase the base resonance of the music. It comes with a USB charging cable so can be charged from a laptop or mains with the use of a plug with USB port (most modern phone chargers have such a thing). No need to fiddle around with replacing batteries! It has a short cable with audio jack for use with a phone or mp3 player.
*Price and Colour*
The X-MI mini II costs between £15 and £18 on amazon depending on colour. The range of colours available are black, silver, white, green, orange, purple, blue and pink, a colour to suit anyone! Most of the colours have a lovely metallic effect too which adds to the stylishness of the little speaker. The top of the speaker also has a contrasting speaker component which looks edgy and modern which adds a little flavour to the design. I have an orange speaker and it really stands out, I chose orange so I can spot it in my bag or in my room quickly when looking for it. For £16 it is one of the best audio purchases I have made! Doesn't get much better than that in my opinion.
For the size and price of the speaker the sound is remarkably good. I was blown away initially by the loudness of such a compact speaker. The lengthening of the speaker also adds bass and volume to the sound however even with it closed the sound is loud enough as well as high quality. The sound quality is up there with any portable speaker I have, some of which are much more cumbersome than this very portable speaker.
The battery life is outstanding on the X-Mi Mini II, I get at least 8 hours of playing through one single charge The charging time is about 45 minutes from flat to full which is a healthy time for such long playback.
The durability of the X-Mi is also something I've been impressed with. The rounded design makes it very shockproof if you were to drop it like I occasionally do. Mine has very little marks on it from being fairly battered over time!
Simply a fantastic little speaker! Not only is it very well priced, the sound quality and volume is remarkably good. Very portable it can be used on holiday, down the park, in your room or garden. It's light and fits in any bag. I would recommend this speaker to anyone and everyone, huge 5 stars for a tiny star!
Summary: Surely the best value for money portable speaker on the market!
