This review is from: MEElectronics Air-Fi AFS1 Black Wireless Bluetooth Speaker with Speakerphone
I have had my eye on a compact bluetooth speaker for some time, and when a deal came up for the AFS1 I jumped on it. I had never heard of it or MEElectronics, but if the rebate came through it was at least worth a try. It got delivered, I took it out of the box (which I will never use again), charged it up, paired in seconds, and let 'er rip...
-So much better sound than the smartphone speakers, crisp highs with bass you could actually discern!
-Battery life has been great, just as described.
-Makes a saweet sound when you turn it off.
-Great Design: Lovely metallic finish, easy operation using feet/buttons (too cool)
-Fits right in a pocket while playing or can dangle from a hook by the lanyard.
-I have fallen asleep with it playing quietly under my pillow, so quietly that my wife can't hear. How many of us have wanted something like that?
-Can't wait to bust it out at a campfire.
-AND IT'S A SPEAKERPHONE!
-USB cord is proprietary, they should make it regular mini-usb, but I think the one from my busted R/C heli will fit =)
-Speaker grill is cloth, seems unnecessary. It doesn't gather lint like some say, (though I did think it was funny that even the product photo on Newegg featured what kind of looked like dandruff), but plastic would be fine. I have felt under the cloth and that's what it feels like. A pleasant metal finish wouldn't hurt either. Maybe they were trying to diffuse the sound coming out of the tiny speaker, because it does sound a lot bigger than it is! If I were a rich little brat, I would cut it off to see what it looked like underneath. Any volunteers?
-Range is meh. I had my phone in my right pocket, and the AFS1 in the left (or was it the other way round?) and the speaker would cut out. And I'm by no means obese. Putting the phone on the table with the speaker on a nearby shelf should work fine, but don't walk out of the room with your phone, because it will cut out.
Honestly, no serious complaints, just reporting the facts.
For the price, there is no product that comes close. They made it to cost so much more than it is selling for here. Heartily recommend!
