Arctic Coooling S113BT Portable Bluetooth Speaker-Black
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs Update to previous review 10/08/2015

This review is from: Arctic Coooling S113BT Portable Bluetooth Speaker-Black

Pros: Same as before.

Even with only one driver, this little box can still produce quite a lot of undistorted sound.

Cons: Playing audio through both analogue and USB inputs, it appears that one of the two drivers has disconnected so sound is only playing in the right channel.

There is no obvious way to try to fix this myself without damaging the unit, it is well beyond NewEgg's return period.

On the box, Arctic says this has a two year limited warranty and refers to From that page the only choice it to go to "Learn more about ARCTIC Warranty Policies and Procedure" ( where I learned that Arctic's RMA process starts with sending the product to the dealer, which would be NewEgg.

Other Thoughts: I did buy a second one. It's still working fine.

5 out of 5 eggs Perfect for podcasts, pop, 'puters and phones 07/16/2015

This review is from: Arctic Coooling S113BT Portable Bluetooth Speaker-Black

Pros: Bluetooth 4.0 with aptX
USB audio
Analogue audio
Three button operation

Cons: Occasional audio breakup

Other Thoughts: For the price,especially the sale price, this little speaker performs way above its class. For two little 3 Watt drivers, the sound quality is impressive with decent (not boomy) upper bass.

One feature which isn't explicitly mentioned is USB audio, which means that you can plug it into your computer's USB port and use it as a "digital" speaker better than your laptop, tablet, speakerphone. As if that isn't enough, it also charges at the same time.

In seven month of ownership it has worked in steamy bathrooms, traveled well (in its carry bag), been dropped, used as a speakerphone and used as speakers for a Raspberry Pi (a small computer with no audio device).

On rare occasions while on BT, the connection will break up and require a pause/resume to fix. Range is fine for my use (and depends on both devices, not just the speaker) and I have yet to run down the battery.

I'm about to buy a second one.

Kinivo BTH220 Silver / Black Bluetooth Stereo Headphone – Supports Wireless Music Streaming and Hands-Free Calling
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: These headphones are lightweight, have comfortable soft on-ear pads, decent upper bass response.

Paired with my DROID 4, they play fine with my phone in my pocket or on the other side of the next room.

Cons: Sound occasionally skips for a fraction of a second, the headband moves the earpieces when moving one's head, the mid and lower bass suffers due to lack of earpad seal and suffers significant wind noise.

While generally comfortable, the plastic over the ears becomes less comfortable after a few hours.

Other Thoughts: My usual headphone listening is with a Sennheiser HD555 circumaural open ear unit paired with a FiiO E6 amp, but the 2m cord with 1/4" jack and huge 1/8" jack adapter plugged into the amp and connection to my phone doesn't work well when cycling, so I bought these.

For the price, it's a great deal and worth the compromises.
