My husband loves Bluetooth speakers. We go through a lot of them, lol. Needless to say, I was so happy to be able to review this Apie 10W portable Bluetooth speaker. Aesthetically, it’s quite sporty too. Bluetooth speakers are great, because they can go anywhere with you, as long as you remember to charge it up. My older son also uses one all of the time in his van. He is a commercial electrician, and has a new van. It has a stock radio, with no ports. He doesn’t even have a 12V outlet. So, he listens to audio books a lot on a Bluetooth speaker. It needs to be small, but loud. This one fits the bill. It only measures at approx.. 8 ¾’s inches long by 2 ¾” deep and wide. So, it is highly portable. It is also a 10W speaker, so it can get pretty loud. This is a very user friendly speaker as well. It has separate buttons for pretty much everything, as well as so many functions. On the back of this speaker you will find your aux port, USB in port, micro USB in port, on/off switch, and micro SD card slot. On the top of the speaker you will find a pause/phone button, mode button, fast forward and rewind buttons, as well as volume up and volume down buttons. With the mode button you can choose between Bluetooth, micro SD, FM radio, and Aux in. There is a little blue LED that moves to your selection. This speaker talks to you in regards to saying where you are: Bluetooth, Bluetooth Disconnected, Radio, and the like. It does not state the telephone call coming in, it rings. It does have a mic, so you can accept calls through the speaker as well. It does not have an LCD screen, so you just move the back and forth buttons to scroll through stations, and choose. The music quality on this speaker is great. It is loud and clear. It doesn’t matter what I play, be it Italian music to rap, to country, I enjoyed it all. The bass and instrumental are clear, and steady. You can get the typical 10 meters away from the speaker, but it needs to be in room. If you go around corners, or behind walls, the signal will drop. The internal battery is large at 2200mAh. It can go for about 8 – 10 hours. The louder you play the music, the less battery time. Also, the louder the music, the clarity is down a little. I find that very normal wit Bluetooth speakers, and this is better than a lot of them. I had a hard time finding FM stations as well. This is more common for me. I live near a Military base, and I need a strong antenna to get a radio signal. It comes up as DY22 to pair, and no code is needed. All the ports worked well. I had no operational issues with my speaker at all. It’s a great overall speaker, especially at its size, and it’s being 10W.
I was afforded the opportunity to review Apie’s portable Wireless Bluetooth Speakers 10W Output Power with Enhanced Bass HI-FI Surround Stereo Sound, in exchange for an unbiased and honest review. You will get 1 aux cable, 1 micro USB cable, and 1 speaker in your package.
