So right after I ordered my Xiaomi Mi speaker off of Gearbest.com, I came across this Z8 on both Amazon and Ebay made by a company called Uchoir.   It turns out the Z8 is a generic speaker made in Shenzhen, China and is basically a copy or clone of the Xiaomi Mi right down to the unibody aluminum frame, similar grill pattern and white plastic ends.  Functionality is the same too with speakerphone and SD card support.  Specs differ slightly with 5 watts each for the two 40mm drivers and a passive bass radiator in the center.  The Xiaomi Mi has 3W each for 36mm drivers...but they are liquid cooled and the bass radiator is larger than in the Z8.  Price for the Z8 when I bought it was $23.99 compared to about $37 I got the Xiaomi Mi for.  So how does it sound?  Listen to the video above to give me your impression and feel free to leave comments below.
