Sensport Move Mini Review: Compact Waterproof Speaker

Sensport Move Mini bluetooth speaker review by musicphotolife.com, Singapore consumer gadget tech blog

Sensport sends me another speaker for my review. This time, it’s a small speaker called Sensport Move Mini that retails at US$27.99 from Amazon. It contains a single 6W driver speaker with a passive bass radiator.

Similar to the Rave Model 1, the Move Mini speaker produce good midrange volume and tamed treble without the harshness, which gives the impression that it’s not clear. The bass notes barely have much impact, although bass kicks are audible without distortion. The rounded highs allow music to be blasted loudly without sounding noisy or tiring.

The Sensport Move Mini shares a lot of similarities with the Sensport Rave Model 1. To put it simply, it is a smaller version of Rave.

Rave Model 1 vs. Move Mini

  • Rave has more bass and more midrange.
  • Rave achieves slightly clearer high treble, while Move Mini does better at mid-treble, like saxophone.
  • Move Mini achieves a narrower stage to position the audio forward, while Rave sounds smoother, warm and wider space.
  • These observations can be attributed to the difference in drivers: Rave has two-speaker and bass radiator config.

I can simply summarise that if you put 2 units of Move Mini Move together, you will get Rave Model 1. Like the Rave, the Move Mini is well-built, rugged, and the included thick strap keeps the speaker better secured than the Rave. The bottom has 2 strips of rubber pads protected with a plastic film which can be removed.

Musically, the Rave is definitely at an advantage because it has a pair of speakers for full stereo sound, while the Move Mini is more compact, and probably a better choice if you needed a lightweight sound machine to hang around your bicycle or scooter. With IPX6 waterproof, 26 hours playtime and a microSD slot, you can enjoy music under all weather conditions. The speaker supports MP3 and WAV formats. You can also feed music to it via Bluetooth and 3.5mm Line-in cable.

Verdict

The market is full of compact speakers, but the Sensport Move Mini stands out with its generous connectivity – microSD card, Bluetooth, 3.5mm line-in – a well-built exterior, and functional shape. It is IPX5 waterproof, 26 hour play time, keeps music going in any weather conditions. In terms of audio quality, the Creative Metallix is definitely a better choice, but Move Mini has a less fatiguing sound and is designed for outdoors.
