Using this #MusicDrum from RedStarTec made listening to music on my phone and my PC much more pleasurable. My phone has rear facing speakers that make the sounds reverberate really badly on the table or countertop and the sound is muffled. The speakers on my laptop are on the top of the keyboard area towards the front so my arm or hand is inevitably covering them at some point. Not to mention the sound is awfully tinny.
The radio function does work, but only if I was near a window or outside. The use of the charging cord as an antenna is pretty cool. It’s awesome that it has a microSD card slot so you can bring albums of music along even if you don’t have a PC, tablet or Bluetooth enable phone nearby to pair with the speaker.
The connection with Bluetooth was very easy. It let you know by a series of gongs when it was on and ready to be connected. Then the blue light would flash until the connection was established then it would go a solid blue. It hesitated a little to pair with my PC but linked to my phone no problem. It worked much better than previous wireless Bluetooth speakers I’ve tried. I don’t think the MIC on it works though.
One non- tech feature of this little speaker that is awesome is the non-skid bottom. My vehicle does not have an input for my phone audio and I don’t have an FM transmitter. With as crisp and loud as this speaker is it would be perfect to take on the road. The non-skid bottom will prevent it from sliding off the dash and hitting anyone when you make sharp turns.
