Libratone One Click
Splashproof sound to take outside
£139 from libratone.com features Bluetooth, 3.5mm line-in, speakerphone Dimensions 12x20.5x4.1cm
Libratone’s new One Click is a sturdy portable speaker that is well suited to the rainy UK summer. It's roughly the size of a chunky paperback book and weighs just 900g, so will be easy to slip into a backpack when you’re travelling.
There’s a protective rubber bumper around the speaker’s edges, and the One Click is water-resistant (IPx4 splashproof) too, so it can cope with a bit of rain or some splashing around on a beach. Libratone includes a simple carrying handle and a more rugged, padlock-style hook that clicks into place – hence the name – to attach the speaker to a backpack or a bike’s handlebar.
There’s Bluetooth for wireless streaming, along with a speakerphone option, and a 3.5mm audio connector behind a protective rubber flap for a wired connection. You can pair two One Clicks together for stereo sound using the Libratone app.
The One Click’s sound quality is good – nice and detailed, with respectable bass for such a compact speaker. When it’s standing upright, the One Click fires sound out from both back and front, creating a strong, spacious sound that works well outdoors. And, with 12 hours of battery life, it’ll last until the wee small hours when you’re partying.
The One Click has rear and front drivers that fire sound all around.
