Introduction

Andromedia Supersonic-X Bluetooth Vibration Speaker Review 05 | TweakTown.com

Andromedia is a name you've probably never heard of, and until my e-mail correspondence with the company, neither had I. The company has a bunch of mobile audio products, but the two stand out ones we have in our hands are from their Boom Series of Bluetooth speakers.

The speaker we have with us today is the Supersonic-X, an interesting new Bluetooth speaker that packs quite a punch in its small footprint. It's a small speaker, but with its 'Vibration Technology' it provides two uses for the speaker - one with thumping bass that vibrates the surface it is on, and the other takes the bass away for clearer, louder sound.

Specifications, Pricing and Availability

Andromedia have two speakers in their Boom Series, with the one we have here today being the Supersonic-X. Andromedia has baked in 4.1 speaker drivers and a subwoofer into the Supersonic-X, and mixed with the vibration effect, it's an incredibly loud and thumpy audio experience. We have an 850mAh battery that keeps you listening to music for hours on end, too.

The Supersonic-X has 'Vibration Technology" which Andromedia says is for "deep powerful bass" - and they're right. We also have speakerphone capabilities, an ergonomic touch key for operating the speaker, a built-in microphone, 15W of total output power, an 850mAh battery, and DC input for charging it up.

Andromedia has priced the Supersonic-X at just $56, making it an incredible speaker for the money. It is priced at the identical price of the Supersonic-P, which has similar features, minus the 3.5mm auxiliary jack, and four speaker setup.

When it comes to physical design, the Supersonic-X has a curved diamond shape which I really loved. The black and grey design with blood red lights on top really have an eye-catching look.

A Closer Look

We'll first take a look at the Supersonic-X, from top, bottom, and all around.

Starting at the top, we have a bunch of touch-capable keys to press. Starting at the top, we have the Bluetooth on/off button, rewind/previous track, play/pause/answer/hang-up call, fast forward/next track, and a button to turn on/off the vibration feature. Right up the top of the Supersonic-X are two LEDs, one red and one green. Green indicates that it is on, while the red light will flash when it is charging.

On the side of the Supersonic-X we have (from left to right) an on/off switch, 3.5mm auxiliary in, and the 9V/1.5A DC input for charging it up.

On the bottom of the Supersonic-X we have the subwoofer, which puts out some serious bass for a little speaker.

The sides of the Supersonic-X feature an awesome punctured design that allows the 360-degree omnidirectional sound to blast out.

Design

I quite liked the design of the Supersonic-X, from its color scheme on the speaker itself, to the dark red buttons on top. At night, the red buttons really shine, standing out from the Bluetooth speaker crop. The small design of the speaker we have here today makes it super easy to carry around in your bag, something I did during my time with the Supersonic-X.

Taking it around in my bag was easy, but having to lug around a DC power cable was a huge downside. All of my other speakers, and I mean all of my other speakers, are powered by micro USB. This omission by Andromedia is a huge downside, as it takes away part of the mobile experience. You can't power this on-the-go, which really hurts.

Standout Features

NFC capabilities and the Vibration Technology are the two standout features with the Supersonic-X, first we'll tackle the NFC part of the speaker.

I was using my Sony Xperia Z2 smartphone during my time with the Supersonic-X speaker, and getting NFC to work was a bit of a hassle. Holding my Xperia Z2 up to the side of the Supersonic-X, and only half the time it connected through NFC. I had to sometimes use Bluetooth because it was just, easier.

The Vibration Technology that Andromedia has baked into the Supersonic-X is actually pretty damn impressive. I can put down a tiny mobile speaker and have it thump bass directly into the surface it is sitting on, with some great results. You wouldn't think that this much bass can come from such a small speaker, but it can.
