Bluetooth® NFC Speaker with Cradle - White
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: Great product. I enjoy the sound portability, reliability, and volume range. Cradle is nice. I like that the speaker is plain and just hides in a room- no weird shape or loud color, you look around and just hear good sound.
CONS: The only Con to this whole setup is it comes with a micro USB to USB cable but it does NOT include a power adapter for charging so be sure you have one- you know, the little two prong with USB port on the back or a micro-USB charger of some sort. I was frustrated having to track one down since the product description says it includes charger. I've noted this to Customer Service so I'm sure they will update the description so other buyers aren't caught unaware, but until then...Still an awesome buy. Love it and so do my kids
PROS: relatively light weight
CONS: sound is not good, the connection to the Bluetooth device is spotty and cuts out when a few meters away,
however, this nice big box supplies loud volume of course, compared to other speakers ive tried of the same size
PROS: 4 day battery life, loud, light weight
CONS: BT range
PROS: Louder than I thought it would be.
Clearer sounding than I thought it would be.
CONS: Battery only lasts 4 hours.
Cradle is almost pointless. It's a nice thought, but If it's going to pop out to hold the phone then the speaker needs to be tilt capable. Or some other method of holding a device and not just laying flat down.
Not too much bass.
PROS: Easy to setup, phone cradle is nice, battery efficient, good output
CONS: Only sits on it's back or side. No angled sitting option
CONS: Sound was OK, the Bluetooth range was maybe 15-18 feet, but most importantly, it did not look right for my space.
PROS: Sounds Good
CONS: Cradle is redundant
PROS: Lightweight, easy BT setup, holds charge well for about 4 hours.
CONS: Sound is what you would expect for cost
