You want a small, very cheap, and cheerful Bluetooth speaker that, for its price, has reasonably good sound? Check out the SSSSSpeaker from aiiia.
The people at a company called aiia (their Web site loads insanely slowly) out of the Ukraine pitched me the SSSSSpeaker (yes, that’s how they spell it, it’s not a a typo), billed as the world’s smallest Bluetooth speaker, and sent me a unit.
It is, I grant you, a little odd-looking but it’s pretty small and its collapsing silicone shroud (no, it does not double as a cup) makes it even smaller (it can fit into a space 3.25” by 3.25” by 1.75”; that's about the size of an unusually thick hockey puck).
The sound? Surprisingly good for such an odd format; the bass is weak, the mid-tones OK, and the treble a little bright but, as I wrote, surprisingly good.
It's rechargeable and has a reputed 8 hours of play time.
The price? $19 for a wired version and $26 for the Bluetooth version. Cheap and cheerful. What’s the tag for on the edge of the speaker? No idea.
