Bluetooth Speaker Final Thoughts
I was expecting more for ~£50 than the Bitmore e-Storm LabyrinthX Bluetooth Speaker was able to deliver. I have seen similar sized and designed units for half that price, which is a bit of a let down. After all Bitmore are simply re-branding an OEM unit with their logo and selling them trough their outlet.
The sound is good for the size of the speaker and the build quality is very good too. It is better than the sound you get from a laptop, tablet or mobile phone speakers for sure and will make a good replacement or temporary solution where you need a bit more power.
bitmore e-Storm LabyrinthX Conclusion
The performance of the Bitmore e-Storm LabyrinthX Bluetooth Speaker was good but not great. It can fill a fairly big room with sound quite well but don’t expect a nightclub type experience. Bass isn’t really the e-Storm speakers’ strong point despite the claims on the box. The level of bass depends heavily on the surface on which the unit is placed. Even then it isn’t exactly ‘Super Bass’.
The Bitmore e-Storm LabyrinthX Bluetooth Speaker is a good looking bit of kit. The materials and colors compliment each other and give a great overall look. The lack of any accented colors doesn’t detract from the appearance and wouldn’t do much to make it any better looking in my opinion.
the construction of the Bitmore e-Storm LabyrinthX Bluetooth Speaker is excellent. I applied a crude drop test and water resistance test and the speaker came through the other side relatively unscathed. Apart from a few superficial scuffs to the exterior the speaker still played on regardless.
The Bitmore e-Storm LabyrinthX Bluetooth Speaker will compliment a portable device or replace its speakers altogether, the choice is yours. When paired with a mobile phone it will also serve as a speaker phone too. The battery has a long enough life and a fast recharge time so you won’t be annoyed with the frequency of charging to play time ratio. If your mobile device runs out of juice before the speaker does you can simply drop your Micro SD card into the slot on the speaker (providing you have music on your Micro SD card) and carry right on listening.
The Bitmore e-Storm LabyrinthX Bluetooth Speaker will cost you £49.99 (Bitmore). For that sort of money I think you can do much better. I have seen similar sized and designed units across the internet for more than half the price of these Bitmore branded units. For me personally, I think £30 would be closer to the mark.
As you will know if you read the review, the Bitmore e-Storm LabyrinthX Bluetooth Speaker is let down by it’s performance firstly and secondly by it’s high price. The sound it produces will fill a room but there won’t be a lot of definition. It’s ideal for scenarios where you want sound in the background that won’t overpower conversation, but not much else to be fair.
