This speaker has a redesign over last year's. It is much more durable, and may sound a tiny bit better. So, that is the background, on to the review.
The PBT-1000 is a bluetooth speaker you can use with your tablet, phone, PC, or any device with bluetooth. You can use it to listen to music, or as a hands free communication device. Set-up is easy, comes with a nice quick start guide. I like that it comes with a removable battery. If you wear the battery out, it can be replaced. There are controls on the side for power. Also a patch cord input is provided. This way you can hook the speaker up as a wired speaker for non bluetooth devices. The microphone is on the side too. There are 2 round speakers inside, and one oblong speaker. It can be propped up with the included prop, or it can stand on it's side. the casing does not feel cheap, nor too heavy. It's just right. The charge cable, and the patch cable are included. This model went to mini-usb, instead of micro. I think they did this to solve the problem I had with last year's model, the charger input seems much better anchored.
The performance of these speakers are very good! They are clear, and get loud enough. If you want louder, or clearer, you might have to pay upwards of $100. Some of those models are not portable, and need a wall plug. Also, they are much bigger, and heavier. I think they made these the best they could be at this size. These fit my needs 100%.Read more ›
Check out my review I did online on youtube.
The pairing was easy enough (completed seperate times). We turned our respective devices on, then did a scan with his I-Phone and I with my Galaxy Tab 2. The item was found and paired that easily.
The sound is better than I expected. I tested it out at my parents and had was startled at the good sound. I later tried an Ultraviolet movie and heard some of the background sounds I only here when i play the actual DVD. My son played with the sound on his and he appeared impressed (which takes more doing with him than for me).
The "Volume +/- are misleading. On a BLUETOOTH Connection it will skip to the next song (or back to the beginning) for music and the next "Chapter" for Ultraviolet movies. The volume is still controlled from the primary device. However, it controls easy enough from the device. This is on a BLUETOOTH connection, not the stereo cable connection (unused as of yet-assume the volume controls on the device will NOT be Fwd/Rvrs at that type of connection). I have already tested the Bluetooth sound with Google Play-Music, my Ultraviolet (via Flixster) collection, Pandora app, and I-Heart Radio app.
The nice part is I can take this outside while my daughter and I play and still have my music going, take just the speaker outside (within a short distance), etc.
Battery: I have yet to fully test the battery life on this device.Read more ›
