This portable Bluetooth speaker from Inateck functions with various devices as well as PC and Mac computers. The BP-2001 portable bluetooth speaker also boasts quality sound in most applications and has a convenient device placement option on top that puts it a step above the average sound speaker.
The sleek, long-horizontal design speaks volumes to users who get a useful stand plus an elegant look that evokes power and convenience.
The device placement option on top is a great design move. All devices I found fit nicely even with covers on them while the notch was deep enough to alleviate any stability concerns.
This 10 W speaker set (5 W x two drivers) comes with a manual, a 3.5mm stereo cable and a USB micro charge cable.
The play/pause button eliminate the need for a remote and the built-in microphone is ideal for clear conversations – answer and end calls with only one button.
Some specifications include the following details:
- Signal distance: up to 10m (signal conditions may vary or be less favorable due to interfering signals)
- Battery: Li-Ion cell, capacity -> 800 mAh
- Measurements: 9.5 x 2 x 1.5-in (24.13 x 5.08 x 3.81-cm)
- Supported wireless modes: Bluetooth v2.1 and EDR
Users get a helpful indicator light to confirm connection. The transmission range can be affected by low battery power.
The sound performance produces no static or distortion even at high levels, but wavers a bit when projecting voice through the speaker when using as a phone or personal PA system.
No volume control in the back just the power switch, auxiliary port, and mini USB port for charging the speaker. Users get long speaker use after each charge and the size is perfect for traveling and other mobile uses.
Connected devices usually have volume controls, so it does not make much sense to duplicate that feature. The built-in auxiliary (3.5mm) inlet channels sound from a variety of media like games, movies, music, or net-based media streaming
The support arm pulls out from behind the speaker for an extra sturdy stand and the two rubber strips on the bottom provide nice stability and reduce vibration.
The holding strip is sturdy and stable thanks to a weight bottom complete with the slip resistant strips. Better to have a solid holding strip instead of trying to make it adjustable in the design.
The back surface needs more cleaning attention when fingerprinted though stands up well amid other normal “wear and tear” conditions.
A solid speaker option with an appealing look and simple interface while the device placement option on top pushes it beyond the average speaker’s capabilities. The highly recommended (***1/2 out of four stars) Inateck BP200110W Bluetooth Stereo Speaker retails for $62.99.
