Sony has had a good history of producing great wireless speakers. With my previous reviews of the Sony SRS-X3, SRS-X33, SRS-X55 portable speakers, the Sony h.ear go SRS-HG1 somewhat falls flat, literally, in the audio quality. When playing music using flat setting, the treble is veiled, bass…

Paradigm Electronics is a rather well-known audio speaker manufacturer for over 30 years. They recently announced the availability of 3 models of the Premium Wireless Series in Singapore, and invited me to a private launch event. The PW 600 (RRP: S$1199) is a compact speaker driven…

I just received a Bluetooth mini speaker for review. It’s the Bose SoundLink Mini, retailing in Singapore at S$299. Once I paired to my smartphone, the sound that comes out of it blows my mind. Wow Wow Bass Like many lay people, I always thought…

Singapore-brand UB+ (UB-Plus) informed me that Eupho speakers are available on Amazon, and requested that I share my review there too. When I visited the product page, all the other reviews were similarly favourable. Indeed, UB+ Eupho speaker is well-balanced with clear treble without overbearing, and good subtle…

The SRS-X55 is the largest speaker of the 3 portable wireless speakers announced by Sony in May. The smallest SRS-X11 is a mono speaker that can be linked to another X11 for stereo, while the SRS-X33 achieves brilliant treble and deep strong bass. How does…
