This review is from: New Original OEM Samsung ETA0U80JBE Premium USB Sync Data Cable + Home Wall Travel AC Charger Adapter For Galaxy Note 2/II (T889/I605), Galaxy S 3/III (i747/L710/T999/i535/R530), Galaxy Express i437
Pros: Wall plug works better with a different cable than the one provided
Cons: Fakes. As in they are not genuine Samsung
Other Thoughts: Ordered two. One of the wall chargers did not work (DOA). They did send me a replacement quickly but these are not identical to real Samsungs. The cables are low quality and stiff. Do not even feel the same as Samsung's cables nor are they the same length. The micro-USB ends broke apart within a couple weeks making them not work and worthless. Got these as extras to have and would rather not deal with getting replacements of the same junk.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Braven 855s Wireless Portable Bluetooth Speaker with Mic and Powerbank (Silver)
Range via Bluetooth
Two Speaker Stereo plus Mic for Calls
Discrete left/right Channel Pairing
USB Device Charging
Cons: Not as clear (muddy) as desired maybe due to "weatherproof"
Buttons could be colored for better visibility
Hard to find much wrong...
Other Thoughts: Large, loud, well built, bluetooth speakers.
The mic is only on the front and is noise cancelling which means you will need to be within 5 feet for it to work well. I found any further distance requires you to raise your voice and sometimes yell when over 10 feet away.
I got these for the garage, outside BBQs, and other uses that may expose them to the elements and abuse. Since they are "weatherproof", the sound is a little less defined as desired. This may make the mic less sensitive. But still decent sound, loud, and rich for small-ish battery powered speakers. Battery life is great too! Very durable! Heavy and sturdy build!
If you are looking for a conference speaker for indoor use check out the 850 from Braven. Same battery life and power output but may be a little clearer since they are not "weatherproof". Mic may be better too.
Great speaker and more than I expected. Ended up buying a second speaker to pair as discrete left and right channels. Though in pairing two speakers I notice a delay between source and output if you are playing from video (dialog/reading mouths vs audio). Not a big deal if you are just listening to music.
