TikiTunes Wireless Bluetooth Speaker
$ 40 US
TikiTunes Wireless Speaker is a Bluetooth Speaker with "Atmospheric Light Effect. " The speaker is 5 watts, has up to 6 hours of playback and contains a built-in light that looks like a burning flame. It is water and dust resistant and you can add another TikiTunes stereo pairing speaker.
Packing for the speaker is well done and includes the speaker, USB charging cable and instructions. To set up the speaker, turn it on and it will be in pairing mode. Connect your device to it via Bluetooth and you're ready to go. To charge, simply pull the rubber tab to reveal the USB port and connect the charging cable to the speaker and power.
The appearance of TikiTunes Wireless Speaker is a bit controversial in my house. My wife doesn't like the way it looks and my son and I like it. It has a beach feel and the flame of light, while some kind of gimmick looks pretty cool. The bottom of the speaker has a screw holder to allow attachments such as garden spiders or a stand.
I found it disappointing that you need two of the speakers to make a stereo pair. I know that stereo involves two speakers, but with just that, it sounds like mono. Still, the loudspeaker is loud and safe to listen to music or podcasts. It is not the best audio speaker out there, and at higher volumes there was some distortion. For the price, if the look of the speaker fits the island decor, this is a nice outdoor luau option.
MyMac review ranking is 8 out of 10. Not the best audio speaker, and you need two to make a stereo pair, but for the price it sounds decent and can really light up a room.
