This speaker has decent sound and looks good. I compared it to my favorite speaker I’ve used in this price range (a UE Roll II that a friend owns) and found the audio in many cases was improved with slightly deeper bass and more volume. That being said with a design like this it is difficult for the speaker to produce the deepest bass tones (bass requires moving air and a flat body with a closed back does not have as much air moved) so if you’re looking for really low bass found in rap and some electronic music you’re gonna have to go for something a bit bigger.

This speaker has a respectable audio profile, with a decent mix of low, mids and highs. Due to its size restriction, it does not have much in the way of deep bass, however it makes up for that by boosting the mids. This has a tendency to muffle treble a little bit, but it provides a rich, warm tonal range especially at lower volumes. The awesome build quality combined with the decent sound make it quite a good speaker.

This adapter is a decent multi-use adapter with good audio quality and straightforward operation. Due to the fact that it does not turn on automatically when it receives power I would recommend it for use with a TV or home stereo over a car. When paired with a set of APT-x headphones there is almost no lag, making it good for watching movies and TV compared to other TX/RX devices I’ve tested.

Perhaps I received a bad copy, but the treble with this speaker is overemphasized and cuts like a razor. To achieve reasonable bass and mid-tones volume, the treble will be too high and almost painful. I was able to solve this problem by placing some thin foam between the speaker grill and the cones (the front grill just pops off) and after I did that they sound alright.

These Q12’s are some of the better performing budget Bluetooth headphones I’ve reviewed, with more bass than competing models. The best part is, even with more bass the treble comes through crisp and clear, striking a good balance between high and low tones. When combined with the decent build quality and battery life, these headphones make it onto my recommendation list.
