Jabra Solemate Max Review

Jabra Solemate Max Review

When we are off to some family get together and want to have fun with music then it becomes quite tough to choose a device which can play music real loud. Portable/party/speakers are available in plenty in the market right from the cheap unbranded Chinese ones which you can buy for less than 10$  . It is nothing like one company is ruling the chart and there is no one to beat it. Jabra has an excellent offering for their customers in the form of speakers. The portable speaker is the heart of any house party with music playing out loud enough to keep the momentum going. It is venturing the market with $199 speaker and gives stiff competition to all the existing ones in the market.The

The Solemate is really portable in size and has white removable rubber sole on the bottom. It has the look to impress and stays in place even when you are playing out loud music. A shoelace like cable is present, which can be added to the audio jack that is present on the right hand side of the speaker. Actually the audio jack is plugged onto the white band which is made out if rubber material apart from that MicroUSB port is present along with status indicator for battery, status indicator for Bluetooth and also the power switch is present in there. You will find buttons which are there to increase or decrease volume along with the button to answer calls or check the battery status.

Easy to use

Though it seems pretty small but it weighs around 1.4 pounds. This device is dust and water resistant therefore you can use it almost anywhere you like. Even the bag that it comes with is dust proof so it is definitely an added advantage. Hold on the power button for few seconds and it will inform you that you can now pair it as per your choice. The pairing will get completed within few seconds only. If you press both the volume button simultaneously then you can turn it to mute and the unmute process is also the same. You can use it during any call that you place or receive. If you want to know how much battery you are left with then you can just press the answer call, but if you double click on the button, then it will redial the last number where you made the call.

Sound Quality

If you are impressed with its look already then you will be expected to enjoy excellent sound quality but in here it has a slight problem when listening to  deep bass sounds. So automatically if you are playing the soundtrack, which is less on bass, then you will great sound even at the highest of volume. You will be notified when you get any calls from anybody. The speaker stops playing music and blurts out some sound so that you know someone is calling you.

Battery

The makers claim that you will be receiving about 8 hours of music . We got around 6 hours of  battery life, even when you are playing loud music. The Bluetooth ranges within 33 feet and if you by chance leave that range, then wi-fi will come into work.

Solemate Max Wireless Speaker plays it "real loud" almost comparable with any other high end speaker system in your house in terms of quality of the sound produced its amazing how a battery powered speaker can play in such high volume. With a decent battery life slightly on the heavier side of portable speakers this lifestyle product is well designed to show off in your living room or on a beach party. We recommend this rugged and powerful product.
