Product information and further reviews

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?

Good Book Hi-Fi World September 2013 - Bluetooth is almost a must in all kinds of audio equipment nowadays, mainly speakers. Bayan Audio has just released a portable speaker/radio combo which aims to compete in an already saturated market, but its price tag means it might have problems next to the much more affordable models from manufacturers such as Sony.

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?

Loewe speaker 2go T3 8/2013 - It's taken Loewe quite a while to make its entry into the Bluetooth speaker arena, but it's here at last with the speaker 2go, and it looks every bit as stunning as you would expect from the company. But how does it sound?

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.

X-mini II speaker MacWorld 12/2010 - 11 hours of continuous playback from small but mighty speakers.

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.

Ferguson Hill FH007 and FH008 CNET.co.uk 11/2007 - You may not have heard of Ferguson Hill, but it's a British manufacturer of a very small group of obscurely designed speakers. The company's flagship speaker setup -- comprising the FH001 and FH002 -- will set you back £12,000. Today, we're looking at the desktop version of these 'horn loaded' hi-fi speakers, the FH007 and FH008 sub woofer. Together, these will cost you about £800, but they employ the same £12,000 technology used in the FH001 and FH002. These translucent acrylic hi-fi horns are engineered and designed for invisible high performance. But are they worth a not-so-invisible price?

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.
