The bass is good and the sound does not get distorted even if you crank up the volume. Even if you turn it up there won’t be any distortion or breaking up, indicative of its quality.
The speakers are powerful compared to others in its class, and it does not compromise in usability. In spite of the compact size, the speaker has translucent and crisp treble, and voices and vocals come out clear.
The speaker is also durable as it is made of silicone. The toughness extends to the microphone as it is built for heavy duty use. The microphone makes it very easy to receive and make calls, and the voice quality both ways is clearer compared to other speakers.
The speaker works seamlessly with Echo Dot. As long as you’ve got a reliable Internet connection, you’ll be able to tune in to your favorite songs. With a range of 30 feet you’ll be able to use the speaker in different environments. You can also use the speaker in multi-room, surround, or stereo, so you’ve got full control over the audio.
We also want to point out that this speaker is highly versatile: it is advertised as being for every occasion and it is definitely the case here. As a portable speaker, you can take this with you wherever you want to go. As it is, the Meidong can be used indoors in your bedroom, kitchen, or outdoors.
Regardless of the location you’ll find that the speaker functions well indoors and outdoors thanks to the stereo sound. Another benefit of the speaker is that it provides you a lot of freedom. Whether it is from computers, tablets, smartphones, or other Bluetooth devices, the sound quality is great.
The speaker’s controls are easy to use and intuitive. You can play, pause, and skip, and it’s just what you need for answering calls. Even if you have never used one like this before, the speaker is easy to use. The speaker uses a 1500 mAh battery and is good for up to 10 hours with just one charge so it’s going to last a while.
The Meidong speaker scores points as far as usability is concerned. Set up is quick and with your Echo Dot ready it’ll walk you through the process. You can control the speaker’s volume via your Alexa app, and it’s easy to configure the Bluetooth settings.
The speaker runs fine when installed, but if there’s a problem you can modify it. Since this is wireless, you don’t have to keep checking the wire if they’ve been entangled. Another obvious advantage of the speaker is portability. Since this is lightweight you’ll be able to bring this along without any trouble.
The Meidong also shines in the compatibility department: works great with iOS mobile devices and connection takes three seconds tops. The microphone is a nice touch and it does what it’s supposed to, simplify hands-free calling.
If you have never set up an Echo Dot speaker before, no worries as the process is very easy. Charging doesn’t take too long and it’s good for several hours fully charged. There are advanced options on your Alexa app if you want to tinker with it, but for casual users the default will be fine.
The Meidong speaker has the features you would expect from a quality product. The sound quality is excellent, setting up is easy and overall, the performance is consistent and reliable. For these reasons, we have to say that the Meidong speaker deserves our highest recommendation.
