Anyone else own a Xiaomi Mi Speaker?
« on: September 01, 2016, 12:46:46 AM »
I picked up a Xiaomi Mi speaker after seeing ClavinetJunkie's review on Youtube.  Really like it as it's very small with good lower bass response for such a tiny speaker.  Also, it's rock solid in build with that aluminum shell.  I got the gold one but am thinking of buying another in blue.  Might pick up several of these for gifts this holiday season.  At under or around $40 on Ebay it's a steal and the best price for the Xiaomi Mi bluetooth speaker.  Anyone looking for a really good, candy bar sized bluetooth speaker should pick one up.

Here it is in blue: Xiaomi Mi Speaker in Blue

You can also pick it up in gold or pink here:  Xiaomi Mi Speaker in Gold, Pink or Blue

Don't mean to kick the dead horse here, but I own a previous model. I'm attaching some pics of it that I took earlier. For the $20 I paid for it, it is an amazing speaker. I doubt that I can get a better value in retail. But I wouldn't go for this one, mainly because I can't understand why it is almost twice the price of the older model - if it's just for the case, I'm absolutely fine with the plastic one.

Better bass than sorry

It's not just the case.  According to just every reviewer out there the more recent metal cased Xiaomi Mi speaker has much better bass response and better sound overall.  They really stepped it up with this newer model, hence why it's become so popular.  It is a bit more expensive however, usually in the $35-$45 range depending on where you buy it.

What about this one?



Saw it at geekbuying for $15.

Clavinetjunkie reviewed the smaller one and found it tinny and lacking.  He recommended the similar sized one from Anker instead.
