I am a fan of Bluetooth speakers. I have a small collection of them and use different styles for different reasons. I have a large cylinder speaker that is great for outdoor use and I have a colored LED speaker that lights up with music. Music really puts me in a good state of mind and helps me think so I always have something playing in the background. Having a speaker that provides amplification to what my phone puts out just makes things easier for me. So, when I was given the opportunity to test out the Selectec Bluetooth 4.0 Speaker, I accepted quickly as it’s got a unique design and will fit nicely in my collection.
The Selectec speaker is a solid product. It’s made from heavy-duty materials and just feels strong. It’s smaller in body but has a big sound. It easily fills a room (my office is 10 x 10 and it sounded great there). The speaker is a pretty standard Bluetooth speaker. In addition to the Bluetooth connection, you can also plug in an auxiliary cable for your device. It’s a very versatile device in that respect. With it utilizing Bluetooth 4.0, I didn’t have any issues connecting my iPhone to it. It stayed connected and only took a few seconds to make the initial connection.
I love this speaker’s size. As I already mentioned, it’s small – 6.8 x 5 x 4.3 inches – but solid – it weighs 1.5 pounds. So, it’s not exactly what I would classify as ‘portable’ or for ‘on the go’. I see it more as a speaker that you keep on a desk or bedside table. It’s not something you would grab-n-go with. Because it doesn’t take up much space and is forward-facing, I think it’s ideal for an office or bedroom.
The Selectec speaker puts out a great sound. It’s clear and powerful – from such a small box. In addition to the standard speaker function, the Selectec speaker also has a built-in microphone for hands-free speaker phone calling. It’s nice to have that as an option, but not something I usually use. It’s a really nice option for a quality speaker. If you are looking for amplification for your phone or another mobile device, this is a good one to try out.
