I own quite many bluetooth speakers and it is always nice to see what is on offer, Design language can vary from square typed to round or odd shapes but this speaker has overall a quite nice design that actually reminds me of the Echo dot which is a good thing by the way..It is slightly bigger for those who want to know.
With its nice rounded shape with a cork base rubberized sides and material on top it has more than just your standard speaker has and it is also made with recyclable materials and for each speaker you buy the company plants a tree which is welcome with the talk of climate change.
Ease of set up and use is another key factor with the speaker although hard to see due to the colour you have 5 buttons in total. Power/On/Off – Bluetooth pairing – Volume up/down and Play and pause and all work fine to the touch without hassle and have good feedback. On the underside you have a rubber stopper going around the base to keep it still and that it does even with our testing a max volume it did not budge where some previous speakers we test did tend to ramble off and this is good.
The name “No Bounds” means you can put this anywhere and indeed you can be it a flat surface or hang it onto whatever you like with the carabiner clip provided and it still sounds good hanging from several areas I tested, Also to add to the freedom you can bring it to the pool or beach or a picnic and not worry about it getting wet with its IP67 rating which is a real bonus and we dipped into water just to see and yes it survived the test.
The sound quality is quite good for its size and it has good base too but no EQ app which is fine,many bluetooth speakers do not have such an app so it is not a caveat. The sound is loud and clear and there is good clarity and also taking a phone call is good it has a deep sound overall you could say but it will not disappoint, you can hear in the video review below on how it sounds.

Battery life is around 10 hours which again is good and on par with the claim and I was very happy with it as a whole and the price you pay for it which is around €45 at the time of press, Not only that these come in several colours and which all are nice and stand out and look well, You cant go wrong.
