Share your mobile music or videos and get great quality stereo sound in the palm of your hand with these Mini Rechargeable Portable Speakers from Monoprice!
These small speakers are a perfect match for your portable music player, phone, or tablet and produce a big sound that belies their small size. Now you can watch a video on your phone or tablet and share it with friends without having to get extra headphones and "Y" cables. They are perfect for use in an office, attached to a laptop for a presentation, or plug them into your phone for a louder and clearer speaker phone during conference calls. Do you want music while you cook? Just plug them into your phone or mp3 player and fill your kitchen with both sweet sounds and savory smells!
The speaker drivers measure 36 mm and are each powered by a 1.7 watt amplifier. They have a S/N ratio of ≥ 80 dB and a frequency response range of 280 Hz to 16 KHz. While these frequency response numbers would indicate poor bass and treble response, the speakers produce a loud, clear, and distortion-free audio response across the entire musical spectrum.
The placement of the speaker drivers in the top of the enclosures allows them to really air out and fill a room with sound, without the "boxy" sound so often found in small speakers. Stereo placement is distinct and very much akin to listening to headphones - instruments or voices in the center sound like they are coming from another speaker placed in the center.
Each speaker measures only 2 3/16" in diameter and about 1 5/8" tall when closed (about 2 1/4" tall when opened). They have a magnetic base, which allows them to attach to each other, forming an elongated egg shape when closed. They can also be attached to any magnetic metallic surface.
The speakers open up for use, revealing the controls and connection ports. The set comes with two cables. One is a standard 29" 3.5mm male-to-male stereo audio cable, which connects to the right side speaker. The other cable is a USB Y cable. One end has a standard USB A male plug, which connects to any USB power source and is used to charge the speakers. There are also two USB mini-B male plugs, which attach to each speaker. These carry both the power and audio signal between the two. The Y cable measures 17" between the two USB mini-B connectors and 5.5" between the USB A male plug and one of the mini-B ends. The left side speaker contains the power switch, LED indicator (red for charging, blue for charged/operating while not charging), and the volume control.
Don't let their size fool you. No, they won't replace your 100 watt/channel Dolby 5.1 home theater setup, but you will be amazed that so much good sound can come from such a small package. They make great stocking stuffers for the kids or just a great treat for yourself and your friends at any time of the year!
Add a single High Performance Portable Speaker (PID 8595) to get a bit more low-end bass, while still getting the stunning musical tones and stereo placement from these speakers!
