Xiaomi Portable Bluetooth 4.0 Speaker – After 1 year

XiaoMi Bluetooth Speaker (6)


Xiaomi Bluetooth 4.0 Speaker

Intro

Almost a year ago I bought my wife a Xiaomi Portable Bluetooth speaker (4.0). It turned out to be one of the best gift I gave her in years. It plays her music when she takes a shower and it accompanies her when she does her weekly chores inside and outside the house. We also took the Xiaomi portable Bluetooth speaker with us on holiday and to the beach.  Not only the first days (like in most of the cases) but even after a year, my wife still thinks of the speaker as a wonderful and very useful gift.
Even after a year the sound is crisp, also when the volume is up. The battery is still in top condition. The case of the speaker now shows some dirt and scratches (check out the pictures in this article) but it’s not that bad when taking into account it has been used daily for over a year.

Build Quality and design

As you can see in the pictures the design is plain and simple.Because of the aluminum case and its weight it feels really robust and solid. Because of the format it’s nice to hold it in your hand. The hard rectangular aluminum shell protects the delicate components inside.

Portability / Mobility

Because the Xiaomi portable Bluetooth speaker is a compact speaker you can easily take it with you and store it in your bag.

 

pro / cons

  • Good price.  I have seen much more expensive speakers with fewer features.
  • Good battery time
  • Auto-Shutdown: When the speaker is not playing audio for 10 minutes, it will automatically be switched off to preserve battery life
  • Portability is very good
  • Multi-audio Support: User’s can play music using either Bluetooth, Auxiliary In and also SD Card.

The only small downside is that the instruction manual is Chinese. And you hear a Chinese voice when pairing. But with this device, you don’t need any instructions!

Where to buy?
