What is it?
Despite what it may look like, it is not a UFO. The Bluetune-Pop is a small portable Bluetooth speaker. At first glance it may be easy to overlook as it is quite unobtrusive but pair it to your device (or connect via the supplied USB connecting 2in1 audio cable) and you will be blown away by the sound it produces.
Look and Feel
The speaker is very light weight (255 grams to be exact) and when pushed in can fit in your pocket easily. A spring mechanism is used to ‘pop’ the speaker up and down. Pushing the speaker to pop it open raises the base and reveals the USB port on the side. It is primarily made of plastic with 3 rubber feet on the bottom that it sits on. Though not immensely sturdy, the Bluetune-Pop does appear well made and has all the basic features needed. It comes in purple, red, black or white, and dare I say it – it is cute and fun!
Super easy. Press and hold the power button on the underneath of the speaker for 2-3 seconds until the light next to the button flashes blue, open the Bluetooth function on your device, find Bluetune-Pop and voila.
Looks can be deceiving but don’t underestimate this little guy, it may be small but it is mighty:
- Ultra portable
- Pop-in, pop-out mechanics for easy storage
- 4 Watt speaker power
- Class-D amplifier
- Expandable bass system
- Up to 10 metre Bluetooth range
- Integrated rechargeable battery
- Up to 8 hours playback
Ease of Use
Very simple. The speaker’s controls are minimal, with only a power button and a USB port on the speaker itself. The volume and track control are controlled by the device that you are using.
Surprisingly rich and clear, especially when popped up to enable the extra base. When popped down it can sound slightly distorted if turned up very loudly but this is easily solved by popping it back up.
Fabulous little speaker with unbelievable sound. Above all the compactness and portability cannot be beaten and makes for some fun impromptu music sessions when out and about, at home when moving from room to room, or ultimately when travelling. A great gift at a tiny price.
