The complete X-Mini Speaker Family
We don’t seem to be getting tired of these portable capsule speakers from X-Mini. I got this package yesterday which came all the way from Singapore, from the X-Mini headquarters — the entire X-Mini speaker family.
Been a huge fan of these speakers since I first tried them over 3 years ago (starting with the original X-Mini capsule) and then a few more designs and form factor were introduced last year (with the twin-speaker X-Mini Max).
Since then, I’ve tried several other portable speakers of similar kind (mostly, much more affordable ones). However, from experience, the X-Mini still trumps them in terms of design, material construction and audio quality.
So our line-up of X-Mini speakers include (posing for a family photo op, from left to right) — the X-Mini Max v1.1, X-Mini Max II, X-Mini 2nd generation, X-Mini v1.1 and the X-Mini Happy.
You can actually line them up together to form a serial audio connection and fire up the speakers all at the same time from just one single audio source (it’s the speaker equivalent of Voltron or Voltes V). Each speaker has a power output of around 2 watts and audio quality is still that same vibrant, loud and full of bass that we’ve gotten very familiar with since the first generation of X-Mini’s.
The speakers also come in various colors — white, blue, black, red — and retail price ranges from Php800 to Php2,500 (the X-Mini Happy is the most expensive, I think, which retails $79 in X-Mini’s online store). They’re being sold practically everywhere — from retail PC stores, electronic shops and even Multiply stores.
