The Listening Experience
First off, let's talk sound clarity - I was really quite surprised with the overall sound clarity of the Supersonic-X.
In order to test the speakers, we tested them in two different environments: inside of my office, and outside in a large open area. This gives us a feel of how the speakers will play in two totally different environments, both of which the Supersonic speakers performed admirably.
In my office, I listened to a variety of music styles on the Supersonic-X, where it surprised in nearly all aspects. From clarity for the vocal parts of the songs, to great bass in tracks from Rage Against the Machine, the Supersonic-X delivered.
The beauty about the 360-degree audio is that it's not just blasting audio in front of it, meaning that people sitting to the side or behind the speaker miss out on the music. When it's placed outside, I put it to the side of the group of people I was with, or right in the middle, allowing it to blast music out in all directions.
For those who want to sum up the entire review in a few points, the What's Hot and What's Not part of my review will help you. Skip right to this bit if you want a quick read, or if you want to find out what I found to be the most notable parts of the Supersonic-X, we're going to jump into that right now.
Its Size & Design: For a newcomer to the portable Bluetooth speaker game, Andromedia has delivered not only something that looks great, but it is also quite petite. The design is something that will appeal to a wide audience, while the size is perfect for carrying it around to a friend's house for some audio that will fill up a room without a problem.
Lots of Bass!: This is something I really didn't expect from the Supersonic-X, especially when I took it out of the box and felt it in my hands, noting its size. But, when it's cranked up, it will really vibrate your entire table without a problem.
DC input only: This is one downside of the Supersonic-X speaker, is that it requires DC power. I wish that Andromedia had gone with micro USB to power its speaker, but unfortunately you require a power cord if you want to use this all day. Alternatively, if you were to not have it charged up to 100%, and say at 50%, you couldn't trust it to last for a few hours without having to worry about the closest power point.
For one of their first audio products, Andromedia have surprised me. Not only have they crafted a great-looking mobile speaker, but it sounds great, too. The Vibration Technology that it sports is used to great effect, vibrating my entire table as I type this.
The one downside is the DC power input requirement, which will turn a lot of people away from this speaker. I think if Andromedia had included both - micro USB and DC input - it would've made one of the best mobile speaker offerings in quite a while. It doesn't pack a massive punch, but for its size, it's one hell of a speaker.
