TeknMotion Air Capsule Bluetooth Speaker Review
Portable speakers are handy pieces of technology to have and use. There are many different types and shapes and they all cost different prices. The TeknMotion Air Capsule speaker retails for $39.99 and can be found at CompuExpert (link) or on Amazon (link). The speaker includes a micro usb cable, a 3.5 mm cable (or auxiliary cable), a non-slip pad, and the speaker itself. It does not include a wall charger or a travel case, but those do not affect the speakers performance. I use my own wall charger to charge the speaker and it charges well.
The Air Capsule has a compact design but packs a big punch (of sound!). The speaker is well built because it is built of mostly metal and some plastic (see video). There is a rechargeable battery that gives you up to 4.5 hours of music or 15 hours of talk time. I was able to use the speaker for multiple uses and it lasted about 3-4 weeks before I needed to charge the speaker.
The speaker has a microphone, multifunction button, and led indicator on the front and an on and off switch, micro usb charging port, and 3.5 mm auxiliary port on the back of the speaker. The multifunction button is used to pair devices and answer or end calls. The led indicator uses a blue and red led to display different signals such as when the speaker is in pairing mode (alternating blue and red led flashes) or when it is charging (red when charging and no led when full charge). The aux port allows you to use non- bluetooth capable devices with the speaker. There is no volume or skip track or replay track buttons on the speaker.
The speaker features 40 mm drivers so sound quality is present. Bass adds an extra kick to sound quality. The bass is strong and sometimes the speaker will move across the table when a lot of bass is present (without use of the non- slip pad). Also, there is the separation of different layers such as different instruments can be identified. The speaker is loud for its small size.
Overall, the small speaker has big sound. I would recommend the Air Capsule to those looking for a bluetooth speaker that is portable, has good build quality, and produces great sound.
