What do you primarily pay attention to when choosing portable equipment? Of course, the brand, because of the authority of the manufacturer — a big plus. And on the design: you want to surround yourself with beautiful things. Naturally, the price. And, of course, the quality of work. According to the first three points, Huawei portable Bluetooth speaker definitely has a high chance of winning, and with the sound, it is in order.
You can't strangle this song, you can't kill it
Soundstone Bluetooth speaker can easily fit not only in any backpack but even in a briefcase or handbag. The appearance of the device suggests a large pebble, carefully sharpened by sea waves. This is especially true of the option in the gray design: and I want to run a "pancake" on the water! But there is no, such acoustics on Bank not lying around.
The column is made soundly and the quality is not inferior to the products of the most prestigious brands. The case is made of durable matte and soft to the touch plastic, there is a silicone ring on the bottom to prevent the speaker from crawling on the table at high volume. The micro-USB charging connector is securely covered with a silicone plug, all buttons are hidden inside the sealed case and pressed through the soft zone. The tightness here is the entire level of IPX5 (protection from water flows from any direction), so dive with this column is not necessary, but if it accidentally falls under the rain, nothing terrible will happen.
With a thick cord, the speaker will attach to clothing, backpack or, say, hang in the car on the rear view mirror to use as hands-free. The only thing that can eventually wear out with not the most careful handling is a fabric grill, and even then very soon. The rest of the column looks completely unkillable.
Masking under a cobblestone
The model has only one micro-USB connector. In SoundStone there is nothing superfluous. No fancy codecs (compact column, they are completely useless), but there are voice alerts in English.
The charging process is displayed by the led, and the charge level can be determined by the column next to the Bluetooth icon in the status bar of the smartphone.
The speaker connects to the phone via Bluetooth with lightning speed and keeps the connection tight. Two brick walls in the apartment break easily and without stuttering. Loud! Even in a room with an area of 16 m2, there is some margin for strengthening and in a small room (or car) enough 60-70% of the maximum level. And even at maximum volume — no wheezing.
The frequency balance depends on the position of the speaker. Just on the table, it's fine: the top is transparent, the bass is clear, but the middle bit takes precedence. If you lean the speaker against the wall, the bass rises, without losing the clarity, the sound acquires solidity and drive. The ideal place for the speaker is in the corner of two walls or in front of the window.
A stone in someone else's garden
Huawei was in no hurry to fill up the world with its Bluetooth speakers. She was engaged in professional communication equipment, developed the production of processors, stormed the heights of the smartphone market and has already ranked second in the world in terms of sales. Now you can look around and think about the expansion not only up but also in breadth. From this point of view, the SoundStone model is a stone cleverly thrown into the field of portable Bluetooth speakers. So the other inhabitants of the market better relax.
