If you're one of those people who blasts music from your mobile phone speaker on the train much to the annoyance of everyone else, it's not necessarily your musical selection that's the primary annoyance. In many cases, it's the shrill, ear-burrowing sounds of the underpowered speaker creating those disagreeable tones in the first place.
Veho has taken the step to make the experience of listening to someone else's mobile sounds more pleasant, without necessarily falling back to the bulk of a speaker dock. What we have is a battery-powered, 4cm diameter, 5cm tall cylinder that charges over USB and can be connected to a 3.5mm plug or paired via Bluetooth.
A switch on the bottom determines whether it's operating in Bluetooth mode, 3.5mm or is off altogether. The off switch is inconveniently placed between these two, making it quite fiddly to ensure it's definitely in the off position.
There's also no volume control on the 360, relying on the device to provide the adjustments. Still, it can manage quite a deal of loudness without distorting, and has surprising clarity for a speaker of its size. It's no big speaker set, but it doesn't need to be. Stick it in a corner, and the walls will provide a bit of extra reverb, too.
