You see this little device reviewed on several sites around the web and it seems to get a lot of favorable impressions. I had access to one for a few days and well, I had to see what this little thing could really do. Let me just say that this is not a great sounding stereo. It's not capable of the output anyone would reasonably want for great stereo. That said, it's not horrible and can fit in your hand easily like a juicebox and puts out enough noise for near field listening. It also has crosstalk cancellation in its circuitry that can be turned off and on by holding the + and - volume buttons down simultaneously for a few seconds. That's a pretty cool feature! The depth of field this juicebox can project is mighty provided you are fairly close to it(within a meter or so). It unfortunately emits some electronic noise--which is a pretty common complaint it seems. That's the biggest letdown of this device to me.
Putting it on a table, it sounds pretty weak in the low end, but certainly acceptable when on the floor.
Let's have a look at what the measurements say:
What if you city doesn't allow you to wear headphones while on your bicycle? The awesome depth/envelopment made me question what this might sound like from my handlebars. he he he.... Definitely too bright/thin, but with a little EQ, certainly acceptable if a little quiet overall:
Filter 1: 20Hz Gain -15dB Bandwidth 1.47oct
Filter 2: 33Hz Gain -8dB Bandwidth 1.00oct
Filter 3: 50Hz Gain -12dB Bandwidth 0.87oct
Filter 4: 1809Hz Gain -2dB Bandwidth 0.24oct
Filter 5: 3522Hz Gain -4dB Bandwidth 1.36oct
The three bass filter are there just to provide better power handling. They really don't make any noticeable difference in the sound.
