Splash­proof sound to take out­side

Mac Format - - APPLE CHOICE - Cliff Joseph

£139 from li­bra­ 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.
