Sound quality of the Bluetune-Bean
For its size I was quite surprised by the volume level of the speaker. My wife has been using it on a hook on the shower door while streaming music to get ready for work. It fills the bathroom and floods into our room. We have a two story townhouse and I can even hear it downstairs in the living room.
It isn’t going to ‘bump’ and rattle the walls, but you can’t expect it to. Heck, it really doesn’t have much, if any, bass. The audio quality is clear and unlike many other smaller speakers that I have seen and used, it doesn’t seem to have and pops or cracks. Probably due to the lack of bass.
Overall thoughts on the Bluetune-Bean
The Bean comes in various colors as you see above. Giving them a little flare and personality for the user. It doesn’t have any volume or track controls directly on the speaker, but I don’t think it needs them. There is room on the right side of the speaker for them, but it would increase the price of the Bean, which would make it more expensive then it is actually worth.
The anodized metal hoop at the top is a pretty useful addition. You can hang it on a hook, or use the carabiner clip to connect it to a belt loop or backpack.
It fits the bill as a good stocking stuffer for pre-teens or the less needy high audio and deep bass loving individual. Its small size makes it good for travel when you might want a little more sound than what your phone or tablet can put out without breaking the bank.
On a personal level, the Bluetune-Bean is super easy to use. My non-techy wife can connect her phone and listen to music easily. I have clipped it to my belt loop for walks with my son so we had some good walking music. I plan to take it camping this summer and hanging it from the middle of the tent for a little extra sound boost. For the sound and the price point, it is a great little speaker to have handy.
