Closer Look: Microlab H21 Speaker Set
Microlab has been busy in recently developing a variety of Bluetooth speakers in order to provide consumers with several options that are sure to meet their needs. Microlab’s ultra-portable MD212 and the feature-rich MD312 fill the need of those individuals on the go. The Microlab H21 is exactly what consumers need to fill the in-home need for a audio system that will accomodate virtually any device and deliver superior sound quality.
The box’s interior does an outstanding job protecting its cargo, while the exterior outlines all of the features that the Microlab H21 has to offer.
The contents include both of the Microlab H21’s speakers, a 3.5 mm to RCA cable, speaker wire, the AC adapter, and the user’s manual.
One of the first features on the control panel that caught my eye was that Microlab put a master volume dial on the H21 rather than a volume toggle, which to me is an indication of the quality of this unit. The other items that can be found on the control panel, which is located on the top of the main speaker, include the Bluetooth mode light, the line in mode light, the source selection button, the Bluetooth pairing light, a play/pause button, and a forward/rewind button.
The back of the main speaker is where you will find the functional business end of the Microlab H21. The audio input gives you the opportunity to connect the H21 to non-Bluetooth devices. Further down you will find another great feature, which is the USB port that is capable of charging a mobile device, such as a smartphone or tablet. To the right of the USB port is the terminals for the speaker wire. Towards the bottom, the port for the power adapter and the on/off switch can be found.
The attractive design of the Microlab H21 extends even to the bottom of the unit. Four rubber pads are affixed to the bottom in order to prevent slippage.
With the H21, Microlab has stayed consistent with its recent design tendencies, which is to keep it simple, elegant, and clean. It is also consistent with the audio output that Microlab is known for; outstanding sound. What you get with the Microlab H21 is an attractive, excellent sounding set of speakers that can be placed just about anywhere in the home without the typical wiring mess.
