Design of YU Yubic Bluetooth speakers:
The speaker at first look will leave you dumbfounded! Just a little cube, this power packed speaker comes with a power on/off button along with a Micro USB cable port to charge it. The design and branding have been kept simple and subtle on the device.
A white cube with a lot of holes, one needs to take extra care of this device from dust, for good performance and durability of the device.The Yu Yubic comes with a little black colour pouch that can help you keep the speakers and carry them along too.
Sound quality & connectivity:
The sound quality appears to be decent enough in the first go. The cube starts shaking a little bit when you increase the volume of the song playing to the highest level. Also, bass of the device is pretty good for a first time product by YU. To connect with the speaker, one simply needs to pair their phone Bluetooth with the speaker.
Each time the phone connects with device, the power button will turn blue. If not, then it will blink in a regular interval and prompt you to connect again.
Pros of YU Yubic Bluetooth speakers
The greatest pro of the YU Yubic Bluetooth speakers is the small size and compact form factor that they have. Apart from this another great thing is that it connects with almost any Bluetooth enabled device with ease.
Apart from this another pro is the small case that comes with the speaker which makes it quite handy and easy to carry and also provides a significant degree of dust protection!
Cons of YU Yubic Bluetooh speakers
The sound coming out from the Yubic speaker is unidirectional i.e. only the holes at top send the sound out. The perforated sides are just for design aesthetic purposes and serve no actual use. This is one of the cons.
Apart from this another bad thing is that the speakers have a very limited range for Bluetooth signal reception, it only works fine up to the distance of one room that too when in near line of sight or perfect line of sight range.
The battery life of the Yubic Bluetooth speaker is also one of its weaknesses as it lasts around 1 hour on maximum volume setting. With low to medium volume settings the battery life increases credibly and it lasts more than 2 hours in such conditions!
Another major con of the Yubic speaker is that if you go out of it’s limited range then it would try to make up for the loss of signal by forwarding or speeding up the track a little so as to make it in sync with the original stream of data. It really sounds weird whenever this happens!
Pricing and conclusion
For a price of INR 1499 only, the speakers offer decent value for money for people looking for ultra-portable and extremely small handy Bluetooth speakers. But there are many better ones than the Yubic speakers, like those by LG etc. So people should invest their money in this solution only if they are looking for ultra portability and good looks. Otherwise there are always many other options to choose from!
