This attractive and unusual speaker from OUTAD, THECOO BTD708K, is currently available from Amazon for £40 which makes it by no means the cheapest speaker of this size available but surely one of the best.
The speaker arrived in a novel plastic storage box which serves to store the speaker when not in use or even as a small desktop organiser for pens and related items. Inside the box aside from the speaker were a USB to micro-USB charging cable, a short Mini-jack to mini-jack audio cable and a single sheet user Guide which was poorly printed and hard to read. I reproduce it at the end of my unboxing video.
The speaker has an all metal body and a very sleek and stylish look to it. As soon as you pick it up it becomes clear why this is priced at £40 as it looks and feels like an upmarket item.
To the front are the two stereo speakers with a blue status LED inset into the right hand grill. On the top is a power button and three volume/track buttons which are clearly marked and easy to find. On one side are the various ports: USB (charging only), AUX in, TF card and a tiny charging indicator LED.
Pairing with my Android phone was quick and easy with the usual status LEd and alert tones for guidance. Once connected the link seem fast, stable and drop out free with a decent range to it.
Audio quality is excellent for the size with a surprising amount of bass with clear and well defined upper and mid tones free from clipping and sibilance.
One unusual thing about this speaker is the bizarre flexible disk thing in between the two speakers. It feels like it should do something but nothing I can see and there is no mention of it in the User Guide.
If you value style and design as well as audio and don’t the added weight of the all metal body then this could be the speaker for you.
