Bluetooth speakers are popular ,they come in all shapes and sizes and surely prices to match,we have tried quite a few here before and the latest one to drop in is called the XQISIT Bluetooth speaker XQ S20. This unit comes in several colours,Black,Silver and Gold and can be found online via the carphone warehouse..
Off the bat the packaging is nice and looks premium and when you take out the unit it also looks and feels premium with a nice presentation with speaker placed atop and the extras place beneath in a black box, Underneath the speaker is foam housing with the instruction manual tucked under it all..

Connecting the XQISIT to your mobile phone or tablet is simple and takes seconds,there was no delay in the pairing process which is good,some previous ones I tried had a slight delay,this was effortless, Should you wish to go the old route and go wired that option is also present and handy if you run out of juice on the speaker itself so you are covered here,there is that age old argument to contest which has the better sound being wired or wireless,the same applies to headphones,there is also a built in microphone which is excellent..
The build quality is excellent, It is solid all round flanked with a nice metallic finish and looks premium,the buttons too are also metal with a textured feel and very tactile given they are not much raised from the surface,they are almost like keys you would find on a mobile but as mentioned very tactile but not clicky,they work a treat in fact.
With outputs to suit everyone it comes with a 3.5mm inline socket and a cable is provided too and can be charged with USB and again there is cable provided which is good to see. The battery beneath is 2500mAh which should last you about 20hrs of continuous playback and charging the unit is typically around 5 hours for a full charge,this might seem long compared to a mobile phone of the same battery status..
Sound is excellent packed underneath is 2 x 3 watts of HD stereo sound which is immersive,I am no expert audiophile but use alot of products and I felt the sound was sharp,crisp and clear,the average consumer will be happy with its output due to the built in passive subwoofer… Its good a great bass sound to it..
