Product information and further reviews

Big Jambox T3 8/2012 - The sound of the original Jambox was already impressive, so an increase in size should mean even better sound quality, or so hope the folks at T3.

Jawbone Big Jambox CNET.co.uk 7/2012 - Could the Jawbone Big Jambox be the perfect addition to your party?

Jawbone Big Jambox TrustedReviews 6/2012 - Jawbone have released the Big Jambox, which is a larger version of the original iteration. What does it have to offer?

Mobile Gaming PLAYER 2/2011 - If you often take your laptop with you on journeys and like to play the odd game along the way, the sound produced by your laptop speaker is sure to get on your nerves after a while.

Music of the spheres HI-FI Choice October 2011 - In recent years, French hi-fi has drawn more attention in the UK, but Elipson, who've been around since 1938, is a brand that's still not too well known. The Plant L loudspeaker looks set to change that.

Sound Science QSB Expert Reviews 7/2011 - Most built-in laptop speakers sound dreadful and powered speakers might not always be an option. Can these USB powered QSB speakers from Sound Science resolve this issue?

Reviewed: Razer Ferox - good sound in the smallest body Hardwareluxx.de 3/2011 - It’s no secret that the mobile sector is becoming increasingly popular. Alongside laptop producers, there is of course another group who is benefiting from the constantly growing number of customers: the accessory branch. Be it carry bags, keyboards, mice or even sound systems - everything is now being labelled as ‘mobile’. Razer is now also trying to hop aboard this concept with its Ferox mini loudspeaker system - we’re intrigued to see whether the balancing act works.

Mini speakers: a review of the Razer Ferox mobile loudspeaker PC-WELT Online 2/2011 - Tiny, elegant and with a crystal clear sound - three reasons why you should buy the Razor Ferox mini speakers. But there are also reasons not to.

X-mini Max II: portable mini loudspeaker for MP3 players and the like CNET.de 12/2010 - Although MP3 and media players, mobile phones, smartphones and other mobile end devices (like the Playstation portable) can play music, and usually videos too, their tiny integrated loudspeakers (if they even have them) mean they are very limited when it comes to sound. The small X-mini Max II is practically sized and promises to produce a decent sound. Our review reveals whether this miniature loudspeaker can deliver the goods.

Thin speaker, thin sound What Hi-Fi? Sound and Vision 3/2008 - Just mentioning the name 'TDK' around here can be enough to push some reviewers into a misty-eyed reminiscence of mix-tapes, and the company's apparently wonderful blank cassettes. Now, TDK is back with some ludicrously cheap portable speakers.

Information about the category


Mini speakers are, just as the name suggests, small speakers which are gradually improving in quality and design to rival the sound produced by larger models. Modern mini-speakers are fully capable of producing big sound from boxes less than half the size of traditional speakers. All that there is to see from these modern small loudspeakers are the small cubes usually mounted on the wall and directed to achieve the sought after 'sweet spot' for the listener. This is usually the sofa or comfortable chair and with the speakers correctly positioned, is the convergence point of all the sound waves. When sitting in the sweet spot the sound will reach you from all speakers at the same time and so the sound will not be out of phase and will be exactly how the studio engineer or artist intended it. Small speakers do have one drawback; they are not capable of room filling bass. Most small speaker systems will be complemented by a larger sub woofer unit but this is easy to hide behind a sofa or unit and need not detract from the minimalist effect achieved from the tiny mug-sized speakers on display. Speakers are also being designed to be even smaller and even flatter, using NXT technology, flat speakers can produce sound just as true to the source from a speaker about the width of a paperback book. Mini loudspeakers are perfect for computers, and also in the car where space is at a premium. Audiophiles will claim the sound is not as good as a large set of expensive speakers and that the effect is lost but the inherent inefficiency of speakers themselves (in the region of 1-10 percent) and the more appealing aesthetics of the mini speaker leads many to opt for such devices when looking to upgrade their bulky old Hi-Fi.
