Jabra Solemate Mini: Big sound in a small package

 

Today, we'll be testing the smallest member in the Solemate family – the Solemate Mini. Selling at half the price (and clocking in at half its size) of the original Solemate, the Mini is designed to fit in your pocket or even a purse with the promise...

The Jabra Solemate mini is priced at Rs 4,999 which makes it a good buy and perfect gift for this holiday season. It’s lightweight, rugged, has very good sound quality, NFC support and decent battery life. This is easily one of the most feature-packed...

Jabra Solemate Review

 

I'm not a big fan of wireless speakers, which is what the cool kids call battery-powered boomboxes these days. Nevertheless, there's a market for these Bluetooth-friendly gadgets that can play music streamed from your smartphone and hold an impromptu...

The battery life is nowhere near the claimed eight-hour mark. I managed to squeeze out anywhere between 5-6 hours depending on the ratio of wired and wireless music playback. However, I must admit that I had been playing the speakers at full blast for...

Jabra Solemate Max

 

The Jabra Solemate Max is a powerful, rugged portable Bluetooth speaker that delivers a solid audio experience across most genres, though deep bass can be an issue.

Powerful output, with crisp, full response at moderate-to-high volume levels. Splash- and dust-resistant, sturdy design. NFC-enabled. Can pull audio from computer digitally via USB connection. Built-in speakerphone

Borders on distortion with deep bass at top volumes. Large and heavy for a portable system. DSP will turn off some purists

The $300-and-above price realm is tricky territory for Bluetooth speakers—you expect a certain level of audio performance for that price, often delivered in dedicated plug-in speakers like the Editors' Choice Marshall Stanmore. If the speaker is...

Jabra Solemate Max

 

Back in 2012, Jabra released the Solemate , a compact Bluetooth speaker with a distinct, footwear-inspired design and decent sound for its size.

The Jabra Solemate Max delivers good sound and battery life and has a strong feature set and excellent design. It's also water-resistant, has built-in speakerphone capabilities, and is well suited for outdoor use with a convenient carrying handle...

We expect a little better sound from $400 speaker; separate AC adapter required for charging (no charging via Micro-USB).

The Jabra Soulmate Max is a likeable wireless speaker with some strong selling points, but it simply doesn't justify its current $400 price tag.

Jabra Solemate Mini

 

The Jabra Solemate Mini is a very solid contender in the portable Bluetooth speaker category, offering clean, loud audio in a small frame.

Can get quite loud for its size, projecting a solid sense of bass and crisp highs. NFC-pairing enabled. Includes speakerphone functionality. Ruggedized, portable design

DSP can limit dynamics at higher volumes. Not ideal for classical and other genres that are mixed with wide dynamic ranges. Lops off beginnings of tracks during navigation

Jabra's Solemate line of Bluetooth speakers has been a fairly dependable group in a crowded field, and the new Solemate Mini, at $99 (list), aims to keep the streak going. The ruggedized design is easily portable, and despite its very modest (but not...

Jabra Solemate ( white)

 

Following, so to speak, in the footsteps of Jawbone's popular Jambox , Jabra's Solemate is one of several compact Bluetooth speakers to hit the market this year and it's arguably one of the better ones, with a distinct, footwear-inspired design and...

The Jabra Solemate is a compact, well-constructed Bluetooth speaker with an eye-catching design, decent sound and battery life, and speakerphone capabilities. It comes with a water-resistant "sound bag" and has a hideaway line-in cable for connecting...

The Solemate could cost a little less and it doesn't sound great at high volumes.

The Jabra Solemate has a few small shortcomings, but overall it's a very solid compact Bluetooth speaker with a unique design.

Jabra Solemate Max Speaker is Ready to Party Really, Really Hard: Review

 

If Goldilocks was in the market for a speaker, she should look no further than the Jabra line of Solemate Bluetooth speakers. To that effect, Jabra offers their Solemate speaker systems in three discerning sizes that should fit everyone's tastes –...

Solid and very rugged construction. Convenient controls on the speaker. Nice loud sound that really shines at higher volumes. Packed with lots of features that make it future-proof. Just the kind of speaker you want to use at an outdoor party. Very...

Some songs lack body. The price is a bit high

The current state of the Bluetooth speaker market is crazy competitive and filled with so many options, so much so that it is really difficult to stand out from all the rest. Fortunately, the Jabra Solemate Max is a very solid addition to the Solemate...

Jabra Solemate Review

 

Bluetooth Speakers are all the range nowadays. Atleast among accessory makers like Logitech who has the Mini-BoomBox, while Jawbone has the Jambox. Even audio...

Loud & Clear mid-range & High-end

Bass distortion in some tracks

The Jabra Solemate is still a great-sounding little wireless speaker that’s very recommendable.

Your Solemate but not your soulmate

Looks great ; Excellent battery life ; Helpful connectivity features

Too pricey ; Sound quality is just OK

Jabra Solemate review (second-gen)

 

The Jabra Solemate is a portable Bluetooth speaker, back in its NFC-capable second-gen form. It might look more like a luminescent character from Pacman spliced with a Dr Martens sole but its design - which, as the name suggests, takes its cues from...

Small scale, quirky design, clear audio, Bluetooth and NFC connectivity, ample battery life, simple USB charging

Not much bass, still expensive, poor voice call connectivity, Bluetooth 3.0 not 4, sound strongest from one side only
