Roker®Sound Cube Portable Wireless Bluetooth Stereo Speaker
There are many inexpensive decent quality Bluetooth speakers out there. Many of them, however, compromise on the sound quality in order to be incredibly affordable. The Roker Sound Cube speaker manages to get the sound quality that you would normally expect from much bigger brand-name speakers at the fraction of the price that those speakers sell for.
One of the first things you notice about this speaker, and rightfully so, is its incredibly strong and crisp sound. The bass notes were rich and well shaped, and at high volume it was hard to listen due to its incredible loudness.
Pairing with my iPhone was a breeze. Bluetooth has come a long way and it’s now almost as good as any other wireless transmitting standard, especially for casual listening.
The speaker is fairly well built. Th bottom and the top are rubberized, and they grip easily to almost any surface. The sides of the speakers are made out of metal grille and look pretty cool. There seem to be three different color options for this speaker, but to my eye the all-black looks by far the best. As already mentioned, this speaker is really small and it fits easily into almost any environment, especially when used in a completely wireless manner.
The speaker uses a micro USB input for charging. You can charge it by connecting it to your computer, or by using a stand-alone charger. Charging speeds will depend on whether you are using the 1 A or 2.1 A charger, and it could take anywhere between two to four hours. Single charge is sufficient for many hours of listening, and it will (naturally) depend on how loudly you use it.
The speaker has a speakerphone option, but I am not a big fan of speakerphones in general, so I was not really impressed with this one either. However, it is nice to have that option in case I ever need it.
Overall, this is a great little speaker, especially considering the price. Highly recommended.
