Recently my father brought DELL Studio 1558. I was quite impressed by its sound quality as it has a built-in woofer, surround sound technology, etc. But when I listened to my new X-Mini Capsule speakers…I realized that I was wrong. These X-Mini’s capsule speakers are simply awesome. The quality and the quantity of sound they produce is really good.
To be honest, I never expected such sound output from these small speakers. I thought they must be like just another small speakers. (I already have set of such local speakers, but compared to X-Mini’s ..They are nothing). The features, the design, the placement of accessories, the ease of use is really great. They (Xmi people) must have designed them with much efforts and as the model number specifies (like v1.1) the models are evolved with customer feedback and new technology.
I received my review samples just few days ago, I already uploaded pictures of X-Mini Speakers on my Facebook profile. Here I am giving a detailed review of them. I divided this into few sections. Please read on.
All X-Mini speakers have built-in battery. So you don’t need to carry battery with you. Battery lasts for 6 to 10 Hours (Varies from model to model and usages). The batteries are charged using USB cable which comes with the package.
These speakers comes with 3.5 mm headphone jack. 3.5 mm headphone jack is the most popular audio jack currently available in market. Devices ranging from Apple iPod, iPad, Nokia’s E-N Series handsets, comes with these jacks. 99% Laptops have these jacks. So You don’t need to carry extra wires, or adapters with you. Just plug-in the speakers and play them. Most X-Mini models comes with attached 3.5 mm jack wire, which are stored inside the speaker body. Just open the wires and plug them. Speakers also have USB cables to charge the internal batteries of speaker. One important thing in connectivity is, we can connect multiple X-Minis via buddy jack. The buddy jack allows you to connect multiple X-Mini speakers with single device. Just like a chain of speakers.
Speakers – Sound quality
The speakers have woofer like structure. Which gives room to sound to pump the sound waves, Which produces a nice effect of sound. With low frequency sound (from woofer), they also produce nice high frequency sound to balance the overall sound quality. The sound quality is really nice. They have 36-40 mm drivers, that delivers really nice sound. We can also use these speakers as satellite speakers in Home theater system. Combine them with few best home theater speakers and get rocking music at home. It will help you to get surround sound effect very easily.
The built quality of speaker is really nice. They are made up of some really good quality plastic material.
Ease of use.
Buttons are properly placed, and have proper naming on them so that we can easily identify the use of buttons. The 3.5 mm jack (which is used to connect the speakers to music players) is well placed into device itself. The size and the shape of speakers are also very proper.Speakers have almost no pointed angles, so even if you keep them in your jeans packet you will not feel any problem. Also the X-Mini v1.1 has a cap, which protects the speaker’s from damage in travel, carriage, etc.
I don’t need to tell this, you can check the pictures of X-Mini speakers. You will be amazed by the looks of the speakers. They are carefully crafted devices. The X-Mini happy (my favorite) recently won the prestigious Red Dot design award which is the most prestigious award in design industry.
Overall, these speakers are good value for money, and must buy if you are looking for portable music devices, Go for them. You can buy these speakers from X-Mini.com. Each model is designed for specific needs, for example the X-Mini happy has built in card reader and MP3 player. It reads SD cards and plays the MP3 files. so choose you models according to you needs. My favorite is X-Mini Happy..!
