Recently I had the opportunity to review some products by HEX. This review is of the 808 Audio HEX-SL Wireless Bluetooth Speaker.
First of all, I had no idea that my LAPTOP was bluetooth capable! I was so excited to find that out. All I had to do was click on "bluetooth" and wait while it searched for plugged in devices. Once it found the speaker, I went to YouTube and had a listen.
I cannot believe this speaker has such great sound. I compared it to a speaker I had purchased that plugs into the laptop and it's not even close. This speaker has so much bass for being small, I am in love!
So, besides the fact that it works with my laptop, it also works on all my other bluetooth enabled devices, like my cell phone and my Kindle Fire! When I am on my way to go meet Casey who now lives a few hours away, I like to listen to audio books on my Kindle. This HEX-SL speaker fits right into my cup holder, so I don't even have to worry about where to put it. The charge lasts me well there and back, in fact up to 12 hours on ONE full charge!
Casey and I took this speaker to the park when we let the kids play a few weeks ago, and we loved having music loud enough for both of us to hear it.
The speaker also has a 30 foot wireless range, so I could go push the kids on the swing and take my phone with me and not have to worry that Casey would lose her music.
One thing I learned about wireless speakers too, is that you don't have to only use them on a bluetooth device. If you have a male-male speaker cord you can also connect it right to the headphone jack of a CPU or a laptop!
You can purchase the HEX SL Speaker for about $60, and it's available in 4 awesome colors which are black, red, white and blue.
The HEX SL Speaker is the Slim version of the HEX XL. The Hex XL is a good sized speaker with amazing sound.
The HEX XL Speaker is a precision-tuned stereo-speaker system with down-firing subwoofer! All that in a wireless bluetooth speaker!
This speaker also has a 30 foot wireless range, and just about 10 hours of battery life on one charge. I would definitely say the sound in this speaker is much more advanced than the SL, but the SL is much more portable, and easy to carry around.
The 808 Audio HEX XL Wireless Bluetooth Speaker is available online for about $90, and comes in 3 colors which are black, white, and red.
