CNET Editors' Rating

The Good The BluBridge mobile speaker offers a compact design, A2DP Bluetooth 2.0 audio streaming, battery-powered portability, aux input, AVRCP playback controls, and the capability to take calls from your mobile phone.

The Bad The sound quality of the BluBridge lacks any kind of low end and call quality was mediocre.

The Bottom Line The BluBridge speaker design is easy on the eyes, but sound quality is lacking.

6.0 Overall
  • Design 7.0

  • Performance 5.0

Editors' note: Due to a decrease in the suggested retail price of this product (now $99, down from $129), we have adjusted our rating to reflect the improved value.

A portable Bluetooth speaker can be a magical thing. These wireless, battery-powered boom boxes can stream music from your computer or mobile phone, and many of them will even act as speakerphones for taking calls. The BluBridge mobile speaker ($99) from Miccus can perform all of these feats of wireless audio magic (and more) in a space no larger than a paperback book.

Measuring 8 inches wide by 3.5 inches tall and a little over an inch thick, the BluBridge mobile speaker uses a blade-like, tapered design that is small enough to throw in a shoulder bag, but not so small to fit in your pocket. The front includes two 1.25-inch speakers covered with a durable metal grille, along with a useful arrangement of plastic controls for power, volume, mute, and song playback (play/pause, skip, reverse).

On the back of the BluBridge, you'll find a battery compartment for four AA batteries, a line input jack for connecting non-Bluetooth audio devices (MP3 or CD players), and a DC power input for the included power adapter. A cloth pouch is also included with the speaker, along with a 2-foot line input cable.
