Mini Egg tumbler speaker







 




I

recently bought this speaker for $9.01 (Approximately £6.30 including

shipping) from china. Similar to any mini speaker such as a hamburger

speaker the purpose of this product is for music on the move, my

prefered purpose is for a mobile presentation setup to add a boost to

laptop speakers.

Basic Mini hamburger speakers



 

















This

speaker is significantly more powerful than the basic hamburger

speakers around while it is also significantly bigger at 8cm tall and

5.5cm wide so I will use my previous purchase of a Mini hamburger speaker as a comparison. Immediately the Egg tumbler speaker looks

significantly better with a clearer finish while it opens and closes

easily and when it is turned on the inside lights up and changes colour

making it appear as a well put together product. In comparison the

Hamburger speaker does not look as nice, does not close as easily

however it does have the ability to work as a standalone MP3 player by

just adding a sd card with music into it and its wire connecting it to a

laptop is more durable.

Egg tumbler speaker



As you can see on the left the Mini Hamburger

speaker has a slot to inser a SD card and a adjustment slide which

increases/decreases volume and skips songs.







As you can see below when the Egg tumbler is

turned on it glows and changes colours showing that it will always look

better than the hamburger speaker.












 





The

wire of the Egg tumbler has brought it down significantly as you can

see in the pictures, The plastic has already started to break away from

the wire. This happened over a weekend of being in a bag when I tested

it. This is important because the speaker is useless without this wire

as it needs to be plugged in and does not use a more common method. In

addition you can see how short the wire is which makes it much more

difficult to use as it means the speaker needs to sit directly next to

the laptop.




 

One

thing that again makes this a useful portable product is the

rechargeable li-ion battery that can also easily be charged using small

power kits. This means that you don't have to rely on batteries or a

plug socket and the charge lasts for a good amount of time. In addition

its shape does make the product itself durable so it doesn't break in

transit.



I

think this product is a great deal at less than £7 and I would pay from

£10 to £15 if it had a good quality wire. I must recommend care with

the wire if using this as a portable speaker. In the end I don't

think I would buy this item myself just because the Hamburger speaker

has so much more to offer with built in mp3 player capabilities.
