Panasonic SC-MC07

The Good The Panasonic SC-MC07 is a Bluetooth wireless speaker with an eye-catching, UFO-like design. It runs on AA batteries or can be powered by a USB cable. It plays louder than its size would indicate.

The Bad Not much bass (sounds thin), no line input for non-Bluetooth devices, and should have a rechargeable battery at this price point.

The Bottom Line The Panasonic SC-MC07 is cool-looking portable Bluetooth speaker, but there are competing products at this price point that sound slightly better and offer better features, including a built-in rechargeable battery.

Review

UFO-style Bluetooth speaker falls a little short

First, Panasonic's C-MC07 Compact Wireless Stereo Speaker reminded me of a UFO. Then I thought Chipwich or some Drake or Hostess snack cake.

Whatever image it conjures up, the $69.99 SC-MC07 streams music wirelessly from smartphones and other Bluetooth-enabled devices. The unit is powered by AA batteries or an included USB cable (if you want to connect it to your computer).

I liked the design, and -- like a lot of these small Bluetooth speakers -- it plays louder than you'd think for its size (though it does weigh just under half a pound with batteries installed).
