The X-Mini Max II Capsule Speaker

Audio
[ Background music ] >> Jasmine France: The problem with most ultra portable speakers is that they're super compact design hiders their ability to provide decent sound quality. So you can see why I might be surprised that anything this tiny could provide anything beyond thin and tinny audio. I'm Jasmine France and I'm here with the X- Mini Max II Capsule speakers which contrary to how they appear right now they are not some robotic egg thing. Right now the Mac IIis in travel mode attached by a handy magnet at the base of each capsule. To use them simply pull them apart and whala you have 2 separate speaker modules. The next step is to twist the top of each unit and pop out the accordion style sub woofers which deserve no small credit for the speaker's decent audio quality. Each module has a variety of mentionable traits around the bottom edge. There's an on off switch, an LED indicator light, a USB port for charging and connecting devices and something called a buddy jack which lets you attach an endless daisy chain of Max II speakers. Attaching the speakers to each other and an audio source of your choosing involves using included multi strain cable. The overall setup is a big messy but at least all the attachments are integrated into 1 cord. Because the Max II includes 2 modules it offers better stereo separation and more open sound than most ultra compact speakers and music overall sounds quite good piped through the little unit. ^M00:01:17 [ Music ] ^M00:01:27 >> Not too shabby for 50 bucks. I'm Jasmine France for CNET and this has been a first look at the X- Mini Max II capsule speakers. ^M00:01:34 [ Music ]
