Usage and performance
You can use this BT speaker with Bluetooth 4.0 or just plug in the audio cable into the Aux in port. The Mi Bluetooth speaker needs to be powered on (when using BT or Aux in), just press and hold the power button for few seconds until you see the button LED glowing.
Go to Bluetooth settings option on your smartphone / tablet to pair the device or just connect the audio cable.
When you press the battery check button you will get voice alert notification indicating the battery level.
When playing audio files from the smartphone / tablet you can use the power button (press once) to pause / continue playing video. By default the speaker volume is around 50% to 60% you can increase the volume using the volume buttons.
Sound quality including the bass is awesome. The best part is that there is a built in microphone, you can also use this speaker for making and receiving calls. You can use the speaker while it is charging.
This Mi BT speaker comes with 1500 mAh built in battery that takes around 2.5 hours to fully charge using 5V / 2A power adapter and delivers up to 8 hours of entertainment time (65dBA /1m).
An impressive and a must buy Bluetooth speaker if you are looking for one. Also check Mi Bluetooth Square speaker – that is not available in India. This BT speaker delivers excellent output and will keep you entertained for a longer time. It works with Bluetooth or simply use an audio cable. Definitely a very good buy (the only issue is selecting your favorite colour).
