What is it?
This tiny little rubberized square is basically a Bluetooth speaker which proves to be both loud for it’s tiny size, as well as highly portable due to it’s light weight. This can also be used as a speakerphone.
Look and feel
The speaker actually looks very different to most speakers we tend to see in the Bluetooth portable market. Shaped like a square soap, this feels very light, and yet the rubber outer shell gives it a tough feel. The added rope/loop helps you to carry it about, or hang it from places. Whether this is a stroke of genius, or just a way to make this look different, we don’t know. It did make me wonder if this was originally designed as a shower/bathroom speaker, which could be hung in there somewhere. However, this isn’t waterproof, so do not do that, even if you’re tempted.
The picture on their website shows this wrapped around your wrist, where this snuggly fits in your palm, so let that be the guide!
The top has buttons for volume, Bluetooth pairing, and power. The bottom has ports for USB charging as well as an Auxiliary In, just in case you want to use this as a wired speaker. The top also has a green LED to indicate power, and a blue LED that gives you the status of your Bluetooth connection.
Pairing is as simple as it gets. Turn the unit on, and if it is the first time, it will automatically be in pairing mode. If not, just press and hold the Bluetooth button, and it will go into pairing mode. Scan on your Bluetooth enabled device, and hit pair. After that, it pairs every time you turn it on.
Ease of use
Once paired, the usage is fairly straight forward. The music or your calls are put through the speaker, and you can control the volume, accept calls, etc, through the buttons on the speaker.
Like I said, it fits snuggly in the palm of your hand, and is as light as a smartphone. This makes it both portable and very attractive.
The rope/loop also helps you loop this around your wrist, for ease of carrying!
At the end of the day, it is all about sound quality, and for a tiny little speaker, this is very impressive. The sound gets very loud, and the best part is that no matter how loud you turn it, there is no distortion to report. This isn’t quite your bassy speaker, but all the music is really clear and sounds great.
The sound quality is great on voice calls as well.

There are portable speakers, and there are portable speakers. This one is definitely the portable type, and what that means is that for once we have a portable speaker that actually fits in the palm of your hand, looks good, and delivers a great quality sound too. A great all around product!
