Testing the Magnum and Final Thoughts

Bundled Accessories:

In the box we find a whole lot more than just the speaker tube and a manual.  In addition to those essential items, we find a case for the speaker that has vented ends to allow the outward-firing speakers to broadcast the sound clearly.  Also included in the bundle are a shoulder strap/belt, USB cable for powering the speakers, an AC to USB transformer, and a 1/8" stereo audio cable for plugging these speakers into anything that has a standard headphone jack.  The bundle is not excessive, but is well rounded and offers everything you need.

The YUBZ Magnum speakers do not have an integrated battery - if you want these to be portable, you will need to provide four "AA" batteries that will provide you with up to 10 hours of listening enjoyment.  I've used these both plugged in and unplugged and the volume level seems consistent and battery life appears to be pretty accurate.

 

Features:

  • Bluetooth® wirelessly connects and listens to all music sources
  • Act as a hands-free speaker-phone device
  • Pre-programmed for all mobile and computer devices with Bluetooth® capability (version 2.0 or higher)
  • Transmission range up to 30 feet (approx. 10 meters)
  • Up to 10 hours battery life with 4xAA batteries (not included)
  • Optional AC-powered cable & adaptor included
  • Registered design

 


While the specs and certainly light on these speakers, it appears that they have two 2" drivers - one located in each end.  I don't expect any mind bending bass, but hopefully they sound better than a $20 iPod dock at Wal-Mart.

Located near the bottom of these speakers are the jacks for the audio cable as well as the power cable.  When batteries are installed in these speakers, the weight of them keeps the Magnum from rolling around your desk and keeps the jacks visible and accessible.  This is a pretty decent idea, but if you don't have batteries in these and just have them lying on your desk, they don't seem to stay put very well.

On the next page we'll test these out and hear how they sound.
