I received this from the vendor to review. I will admit up front that I was expecting yet another bluetooth speaker. I actually got much more - and in a sense less - than I expected. I'll get the 'less' part out of the way first. The sound quality is not as good as some of the bluetooth speakers I have tested. However it is not advertized nor pretending to be a high-end speaker. Sound is more than adequate when I am multi-tasking.
What made me fall in love is not only does this allow me to connect from my phone and stream music, but also to play from my SD card. I have a few micro SD cards left from other phones when I upgraded card capacity, and they all have a lot of music on them. I had intended to wipe them and give them to a friend, but when I saw the SD card slot I tried it and that was the selling point for me. You do need an SD card adapter to use a micro SD card, which I had. Simply insert it and cycle the mode button to the SD card input and you will be playing music. There are controls that allow you to also skip tracks back or forward and a volume control. The max capacity claimed for an SD card is 16GB, but mine worked fine with a 32GB card. You can also insert a flash disk into the provided port.
Do note that the micro USB port for powering this speaker is right above the SD card slot and it just barely clears with the included USB cable. I have a different cable with heavier ends that does not fit. This is not a show-stopper, but you should know about it.
For bluetooth you press and hold down the mode button until you hear two beeps, when scan from your phone. This speaker will show up as FB Wireless and easily connects. It breaks up about twenty feet from the transmitting device (my phone in my case), but that is on par with some bluetooth receivers that I own.
You can also switch this into FM radio mode via the mode button and receive stations in the 87.0 to 108.0 MHz range.
It has an internal battery similar to a cell phone type that, according to the documentation, provides three hours of music play time. Of course when attached to the USB power source you can use this indefinitely.
There is one final feature: you can directly connect this to any sound source via a 3.5mm cable (also included), so a PC or other device without bluetooth can still play through this speaker.
For me this is the perfect companion. I have it in my enclosed patio for when I am enjoying a cup of coffee and the beauty of nature with Bill Evans or Mile Davis playing in the background. It may not have the biggest, best sound, but it is certainly the most versatile and convenient speaker I own.
