You may have noticed that Stuff has been gearing up to give away a Fender Newport Bluetooth speaker. If you haven’t noticed that, then you haven’t been spending enough time on social media. Which… may be a good thing. Except for the whole missing-out-on-the-giveaway part. But a lot of you didn’t miss out. We had one condition for the Fender Newport speaker giveaway: We want...[Read More]
Click through to the Terms and Conditions for the bits where we lay out all our strange requirements (our competition rider, if you like) and then you’re set to pop on down to the entry form and get your entry in. Or, you know, don’t, but entering means that you agree to be bound by the Ts&Cs, unless you work for Stuff Magazine. Sorry, office team (and immediate family) — No Fender goodn...[Read More]
We take a quick look at the rugged and rough Skullcandy Barricade XL bluetooth speaker that everyone’s backyard needs. Review unit supplied by Luksbrands. Shot using Fujifilm X-T2 and XT20 cameras c/o Fujifilm South Africa.
We take a look at the Divoom Timebox Mini Bluetooth speaker — part bedside alarm clock, part Bluetooth music player — but mostly a funky toy that blasts tunes. Review unit supplied by FCG. Shot using Fujifilm X-T2 and XT20 cameras c/o Fujifilm South Africa.
Urgh, not another Darth Vader helmet. Surely this is old news. Don’t kid yourself – you wet your pants with excitement when you saw Vader in the Rogue One trailer. Besides, this isn’t one of those flimsy fancy dress shop helmets that gives you heavy breathing. This is, in fact, no helmet at all, but a Bluetooth speaker. Connect your smartphone or tablet to Vader’s lifesize head and he’ll beg...[Read More]
If you’ve been playing the home game, then you’ll know that we’re giving away a Marshall Stanmore Bluetooth speaker. Wicked, right? The biggest problem with it is that we’re only able to give away one of them. It’s Bluetooth, it’s stylish, it’s retro. It looks like the things our rockstar dreams used to be made out of before things went south. And we can...[Read More]
So we’ve given away several things this year. Smart home cameras, GPS log books, beer, and now we’re giving away a Bluetooth speaker. From rock and stadium stalwarts Marshall, no less, so it should look right at home next to a Fender stack and that Sunburst Les Paul that you really should learn how to play. In the meantime, you can play your tunes on this Marshall Stanmore Bluetooth sp...[Read More]
We’ve seen our fair share of speaker tech here at Stuff HQ, from the crummy to the incredible. Braven’s rugged-looking, rubber-clad BRV-HD falls far nearer the incredible end than the crummy one, with one or two caveats, but more on that later. We’ve got the power The BRV-HD pretty closely resembles a brick, both in dimensions and weight. At 1.8kg, it’s one of the heftiest ...[Read More]
Samsung makes speakers now, that’s something in keeping with the company’s approach to the tech sector of late where they appear to be trying to seed their products in just about every aspect of the market. How do they do when it comes to creating Bluetooth sound additions to your mobile devices though, that is the big question. The answer to it is: not badly at all. At least, when you...[Read More]
Compact. Powerful. Effective. Sticky. One of these terms cannot be applied to Nokia’s little MD-12 Bluetooth speaker. If you guessed ‘sticky’ was the odd one out, well done. But don’t let it go to your head. We’ve seen far too many shower-capable Bluetooth speakers that feature suction cups for a lack of stickiness to be a foregone conclusion. When we say that the MD-12 isn’t sticky, however, we’r...[Read More]
Bluetooth speakers can often be split into categories.The most obvious category you’ll find is when you have Bluetooth speakers that work and those that don’t, like some we could name. Then there are those that are designed for the home and those that have been developed in order to go on the road, as is the case of JBL’s PlayUp. The PlayUp is a small speaker, though it isn’...[Read More]
