Bluetooth® NFC Speaker with Cradle-Black

Play your music on the go using this Bluetooth® NFC Speaker with Cradle from Monoprice!

This stereo speaker system features two 40mm active drivers and two passive reflectors for superior sound reproduction. The speakers are driven by a 2 watt per channel amplifier with a 75dB signal to noise ratio and a frequency response of 100 Hz ~ 18 KHz.

The speaker system can connect to your phone or mp3 player using either a wired or wireless Bluetooth connection. In addition to the normal Bluetooth pairing it features NFC pairing for NFC capable devices. Simply tap the top of the speaker at the NFC logo and your phone will automatically pair with the speaker system.

The speaker features a built-in rechargeable battery, which provides up to 3-4 hours of music playback time. It supports the A2DP profile, which allows for remote control of music playback. It has a built-in microphone and supports the HFP profile, which allows you to use the speaker as a hands-free communication device with your phone.

A flip out cradle at the base of the speaker provides a convenient location to place your phone, for viewing screen content in either portrait or landscape mode.

Pros: Sleek design, device cradle, A2DP and NFC compatible, decent sound quality

Cons: limited connectivity range

I've always been satisfied with the products I've purchased from Monoprice so they were my first choice when searching for a portable Bluetooth speaker. The 11413 has decent sound quality, can be played via direct connection or Bluetooth, and has rubber padding on the backside prevents it from sliding around the boat or vibrating off a table. It pairs up easily through the phone or laptop. I bought it, primarily, so I could play music through my phone when in my truck, on a job site, or when by the pool. When used with the phone (I usually had it plugged directly) it worked well. The Advanced Audio Distribution Profile capability worked great with the smartphone but not at all with the laptop. The only issue I had was it would drop out if moved further than five feet from the source. This made playing music from the laptop impossible. So I returned the unit. BTW, Monoprice's return policy makes that process easy.

Pros: Pairs easily
Okay basic sound quality

Cons: Poor mic sound quality
Weak bluetooth range

I am big Monoprice fan and don't like giving a lukewarm first review for this device, but it does have some limitations. I was hoping to see a review before I bought, so I thought I should share.

First, I got this primarily for use with an iPhone 5, but the sound quality on the mic is not very good. Testing it on the same call, switching with another less expensive speaker, the listeners had a hard time hearing me on this device and I was "very clear" on the other one. Bluetooth pairing is fine, but the connection range is the worst of any device I have. It consistently disconnects if I get 8-10 feet away (and around any corner), which means that it is not that useful as a music speaker unless I just leave my phone next to the speaker. Overall not that great.

The design is nice, but it is bigger than you might expect from the picture. The phone in the picture is big.
