Music carry bag
With a handbag-style design, this speaker has portability written all over it. On the centre of the glossy handle is the NFC logo with three buttons each placed on both the sides. On the left there is power, pairing and pause buttons, while the other side has a calling key and volume controls. Although it looks heavy, this speaker is quite lightweight. Technically, the speaker should be instantly paired with an NFC enabled smartphone. But when we tried reviewing it with the HTC One, it didn’t. We had to manually turn on the Bluetooth mode and connect it. But next time when we turned on the speaker with music playing on the paired phone, the speaker instantly connected and started playing the music.
However, unlike its smaller cousin, the BT M8 has really impressive sound. It was not only loud, but also clear. The audio quality is good enough to add life to a party in a small room, moving car or even at any outdoor location.
The speaker can be powered using an AC adapter and has dry cell slots too in case you want to take this for a picnic. Depending upon the batteries used, the speaker can give a playback of up to 20 hours.
