Top Customer Reviews
As long as it holds up and works reliably I will be thrilled.
UPDATE: Well it has survived a week at the beach as well as a couple nights at the pool. Everyone that sees it can't believe that such a small speaker can sound, well, so "big". Battery life is simply excellent and when hooked to my iPod Nano--- it is the ultimate micro package. It is cool when someone smiles when they see it as it has that cool/ funky/ gotta have gadget that blows away having to drag around anything larger. Don't get me wrong, bigger products will sound bigger and better, but how many can fit in a pocket???
UPDATE: It is going to be almost two years with this little guy and it still works perfectly. I have been selling some things on EBay recently and I have been using it with iHeart Radio on my Android smartphone--- really does a nice job. It is great as the battery still lasts long and it plays clear and loud enough that as I move around the basement I can leave it in one spot. I am still very happy with my purchase and I hope it continues to work as well as it has. What has also been nice is the storage pouch it came with--- keeps it clean and safe from debris or errant pokes to the speaker through the grill if I toss it in my bag.
One thing to consider is if you need a bluetooth option - the BTX 110 is essentially the same speaker but it offers bluetooth connectivity and doubles as a speakerphone.
A few other positives-
- Much better sound than I expected - While it does not offer too much bass it does have a clear frequency response across the range.
- Great portability
- Easy to use
- Rechargeable - depending on the volume you can get several hours of play time
- it definitely sounds better the speakers on the iPod or iPad
Areas for improvement
- I am not a fan of the blue light that can not be disabled
- I would prefer if the cord was retractable and a bit longer
Final Verdict - A nice speaker and at a nice value - Definitely recommended for anyone that needs a highly portable speaker for your iPod or iPad.

From the technical aspects it looks as if they are pretty similar, each having slight advantages over the other, which is what I thought before. When looking for more comparisons between the two, I came across this additional info.

Besides the Kinivo looking really cool with a unique shape, I prefer a speaker to stay in one spot & not dance its way off the table. If looking at just the technical aspects, you might be tempted to choose the X-Mini II based on its longer battery life. HOWEVER, what really made my decision (and what I think is the most important argument against buying an X-Mini from Amazon) was the following statement I found on the official X-Mini website: "Do note that we do not have any authorized resellers on Amazon or eBay. Get the real deal at the X-mini eStore today." This quote, plus the difference in price of the official X-mini II ($29.90USD + $15.00 shipping) on both the X-Mini website and at Walmart ($35), in addition to lots of complaints in the Amazon reviews, leads me to believe some are selling well-made and maybe some not so well-made copies of the X-Mini II. (There seem to be a lot of people having quality issues, batteries dying quickly and the thing breaking on them within the first week, one person even said they received an off brand very obviously not from X-Mini.) When you go to the Kinivo website, the ZX100 sells for the same exact price on Amazon as their website (with free shipping too), plus they link back to Amazon from the Kinivo Facebook page. This leads me to believe Amazon sellers do carry real Kinivo brand ZX100 speakers. While a real X-Mini II might be a great speaker, they also cost more than I wanted to spend. Therefore, I figured the Kinivo ZX100 would be a better bet. So I went ahead and bought the speaker from Amazon, confident I would receive a real Kinivo ZX100, getting all the quality, benefits, and features promised as well as a redeemable warranty.
When I tested out the speaker I was not disappointed, it lived up to my rather high expectations. I did indeed get a genuine Kinivo product. It looks very durable and well-made, definitely worth the $20 price tag. It enhances the sound from my laptop greatly, while watching a movie I didn't even have to turn it up that loud to hear voices clearly. I tested it on various types of music and the bass sounds absolutely lovely, especially for something so small, without becoming distorted when you turn it up loud. Before, I used a pair of comparatively priced Philips SPA3250/27 Multimedia Speakers 2.0 for my laptop that were just terrible, this single ZX100 speaker completely blows them away in sound intensity, quality and range. Plus, the ZX100 has the advantages of being much smaller, more portable and has a rechargeable battery. The Philips speakers ate up batteries like crazy and could barely be called portable. With all the good attributes of the ZX100, I don't really have any complaints. Even with the power button, which some reviewers have said you need to hold down for 5 whole seconds, I don't notice an issue with, mine turns on very quickly, maybe needing to hold it down for 2 seconds total. I even like the original way the volume is raised & lowered, as if those and the power are one continuous button. (You won't accidentally press more than one function as there is "dead" unclickable space between the buttons.) And should the blue power light bother you when the lights are off, you can temporarily fix it by placing a small dot of electrical tape over it & remove the tape in the morning. I am truly pleased with this purchase, after all the extensive research I did on portable speakers I can safely say this is the best available speaker of the type at this price. I may even buy another ZX100 speaker in the near future so I can get stereo sound.
I won a Kinivo BTH220 in a contest on the Kinivo facebook page. Its basically a bluetooth version of the ZX100. I was pleased to find out I can hook them together & run them both off bluetooth using the BTH220 as the control. They sound really good in stereo and I love that they can be run wirelessly now.
