DP100 Ultra Portable Bluetooth 4.0 Speaker
Price: $19.95 U.S. â€” A lot of speaker for the cost!
TheÂ EasyAcc-DP100Â is a small Bluetooth speakerÂ thatÂ provides clear room-filling audio in a stylish design. Itâ€™s a mere 2.6 x 2.6 x 3.8 inches in size and weighs about as much as an iPhone. Toss it in your backpack or handbag and youâ€™ll hardly know itâ€™s there.
It has a substantial feel. You may not find the depth of sound and nuance youâ€™d find in Creative LabsÂ or Bose speakers, but for $20 itâ€™s hard to imagine coming up with sound as powerful and pleasing. Itâ€™s certainly not tinny, and there is minimal distortion at top volume.
The speaker comes with a charger and an auxiliary 3.5mm audio cable. IfÂ youâ€™re listening through a device that does not have Bluetooth, such as my old iPod Classic, you can plug it into the DP-100 Aux port and enjoy your music all day. If you have a BT enabled device, such as an iPhone or iPad (or other tablet), simply turn on the device and it will quickly pair with the source. Youâ€™ll hear a small beep to let you know youâ€™re connected.
TheÂ EasyAcc-DP100Â looks like a diminutive black silo with silver trim. At the top thereâ€™s a rubberized plus and minus sign for increasing or decreasing the volume. You hold the buttons down longer to control volume; if you merely press them, you either advance or go back to a previous track. At the top of the unit thereâ€™s a larger button that you press to receive incoming calls. At the bottom it has a DC In port for recharging as well as the Aux port for audio from an iPod or MacBook. The output through this speaker is far superior to Appleâ€™s built-in audio in the MacBook.
