What I Like:
- Excellent overall audio quality with deep booming bass, warm mids and clear highs
- Stunning design with a metal face and leather trim
- Simple operation
- Loud enough to fill a mid to large size room with sound
What I Don’t Like:
- Wi-Fi implementation is not well refined
Conclusion: The GGMM M3 is a head-turner, with beautiful design and great sound to match. The bass is deep, the mids are warm and the treble is clear. This speaker is best for those who like heavy bass but don’t want to compromise on tonal range. The Bluetooth and line-in work great, but the wi-fi could use some refinement. The Android app is very limited and the only way to play audio from an Android phone. The app can’t even play FLAC files. On a computer the Wi-Fi works better. After installing the Windows program the speaker showed up as an audio device as if it was plugged straight in and would play audio from any program. There is some lag, though so it wouldn’t be ideal for watching TV or movies. Overall, this speaker looks and sounds fantastic, but be prepared to use it primarily with line-in and Bluetooth, at least until there are some improvements in the Wi-Fi app.
Where to Buy
Hey, Dreki here and today I’m reviewing the GGMM M3 speaker. I gave this speaker a 4/5 rating, due to its stunning design and great audio quality. The only thing that keeps it from being a perfect score is the limited app that is necessary for Wi-Fi streaming.
The M3 is a gorgeous speaker, with a brushed steel face and sides wrapped in textured leather. There is a single button on top that controls power and mode and a dial for volume. The controls are limited, but I’m ok with that. A light surrounding the volume dial shows the different modes – Wi-Fi is blue instead of Bluetooth. That’s the only design flaw I can really think of. On the back there’s a line-input and the power port.
Bluetooth the performance is excellent. Sound comes through clear and works even from adjacent rooms. To use Wi-Fi, a specific mobile app is required. This app is very limited in terms of its functions – it won’t even play flac files. It’s a little unstable and crashed once on both Android phones I tested it on. The windows program works better since the speaker becomes an audio output device as if it were plugged directly into the computer. It lags a little too much to use with movies or TV. A cool feature of the Wi-Fi streaming is that with multiple speakers it is possible to have a multi-speaker setup. I never got a chance to test that as I only have one speaker but each speaker can act as left-channel, right-channel or mimic each other. Expect to use Bluetooth or line in with this speaker primarily.
In terms of audio quality, the M3 delivers. There is a rich mix of booming bass and clear highs. The speaker puts out far better sound than I expected for its size and is capable of filling a room with sound. I threw together the first few results for royalty-free music from Youtube. Hopefully this will give you a good idea of how the speaker sounds. I suggest using headphones for the best experience. For reference, here’s what a competing BT speaker sounds like.

And if you made it this far, you deserve a congratulations for enduring my choice of music! And if you’re in the market for a gorgeous, high end speaker the M3 delivers. Thanks for watching.
