The SARDiNE SDY019 wireless Bluetooth speaker is a Bluetooth speaker that is sleek, portable, and functional. The Bluetooth speaker provides great sound with the ability to play music from many different media sources. It also offers features that make this Bluetooth speaker useful and convenient for everyday usage.
Design & Functionality:
The Bluetooth speaker is compact and portable. It does not weigh much and can be easily carried on-the-go. The dimensions of it are the following: 9.43 x 2.16 x 2.36 inches. It weighs 0.435 kg. The design consists of a rectangular and angular shape that comprises of an all-black matte finish style. There are other colors that you can choose from. You can purchase the Bluetooth speaker in any of the following color combinations: black and red, white and red, blue and green, or red and white. The Bluetooth speaker has this sort of soft feeling to it as it has been coated with rubber oil, thus giving the sensation of it feeling smooth and soft to the touch. The top of the Bluetooth speaker consists of six buttons. These six buttons have multiple functions assigned to them and they are the following: play/pause and hands-free calling, previous and volume down, next and volume up, time and alarm clock, FM radio, and last, Bluetooth. There is also a built-in microphone on the top of the Bluetooth speaker in between the next and volume up button, and the time and alarm clock button.
The front of the Bluetooth speaker comprises of a mesh grill along with an LCD screen. The LCD screen portrays the time and alarm clock status (on/off), the mode that the Bluetooth speaker is in (FM radio, TF card, Bluetooth, or USB mode), and the battery level. The back of the Bluetooth speaker consists of a 3.5mm audio jack for connecting non-Bluetooth devices, a TF card slot for playing music from a TF or micro SD card, an on/off switch, a micro USB port to charge the Bluetooth speaker, and last, a USB 2.0 port to play music from USB storage devices. Internally, the Bluetooth speaker comprises of two 45mm speakers and an enhanced bass resonator. Plus, it has a 1500mAh rechargeable battery as well. The Bluetooth speaker utilizes Bluetooth 2.1 technology to connect and play music from your Bluetooth enabled devices. A neat feature in regards to the hands-free calling functionality is that the Bluetooth speaker will announce the number of the caller vocally so that you are aware and will know who the caller is without having to look at your smartphone to do so. It just adds a level of convenience to this functionality.
The Bluetooth speaker is able to deliver loud and clear audio. The volume control of the Bluetooth speaker is separate from the volume control of your smartphone which means that you cannot control the volume of the Bluetooth speaker from your smartphone. This can be inconvenient for some while others may like this since you can adjust the volume to your liking on the Bluetooth speaker and just adjust the volume whenever needed from your smartphone. So, this can mean controlling the volume can be inefficient at times or that it offers room for customizing the volume level to your personal preference. The audio quality of the hands-free calling functionality was really good. You can clearly hear and understand the other person in the call and the same goes for vice versa. The incoming call number voice reporting feature worked perfectly. The number of the person calling was clearly announced and was done so in a leisurely manner so as to not confuse and to allow enough time for the user to comprehend the number. Answering, ending, and rejecting a call was simple and uncomplicated.
The Bluetooth connectivity was excellent since it was stable and strong during usage. There were no signs of static nor disconnection occurring. Establishing a Bluetooth connection between the Bluetooth speaker and a device was easy as it did not require much effort nor time to do so. The range at which the Bluetooth connection can be maintained up to is about 10m. Anything past that range will result in the Bluetooth connection becoming unstable and disconnecting as a result. The battery life is a bit lacking in terms of how long it can keep the Bluetooth speaker running or sustained. The reason being is that it only provides up to about 3-5 hours of usage depending on the volume level. So, having the volume at or near the highest level will result in the Bluetooth speaker running for about 3 hours. This means having to recharge it often which can be quite troublesome. The FM radio functionality on the other hand was fantastic. The Bluetooth speaker was able to intercept the radio waves effectively, thus providing a smooth and audible radio experience with little to none static experienced. Setting the time and alarm was effortless and did not consume much time. The LCD display was clear and bright which made reading and acknowledging some things easy.
The SARDiNE SDY019 wireless Bluetooth speaker is a sleek and portable Bluetooth speaker that can deliver great audio quality with excellent functionality that makes utilizing this Bluetooth speaker enjoyable and useful. For example, it has FM radio and hands-free calling functionality. Not to mention it allows different means of connecting devices and playing music. It allows devices to be connected via Bluetooth or the 3.5mm audio jack for non-Bluetooth devices. Plus, it allows users to play music from TF or micro SD cards and from USB storage devices. So, it offers a variety of ways to play music since some prefer some methods over others or that some methods are more plausible than others in given situations. The Bluetooth connection between the Bluetooth speaker and a device is strong and stable. Also, establishing that connection is pretty simple. The time and alarm clock functionality is quite useful since you don’t need to have two separate devices to perform these two functions as this Bluetooth speaker can perform both effectively. Last, the only downside of this Bluetooth speaker is that its battery life is about 3-5 hours, which means you have to recharge it often on a daily basis and in doing so takes away your time from enjoying music to more time waiting for it to be recharged. Other than that, the Bluetooth speaker is excellent overall. So, this Bluetooth speaker is great for those who can overlook the short battery life and are looking for a Bluetooth speaker that is portable and sleek, can output good audio quality, has FM radio functionality, can be used as an alarm clock, and has hands-free functionality that can announce the incoming caller’s number.
