Surprised to get this tiny little thing from an event, after testing out the thumb-size speaker, it amazed me. Bluetooth connection is fast and ease with Redmi, NFC (Near field communication) trigger right-away with touch on HTC One X+ back cover.
The protection cover on top is a good design which is firm and secure enough to let you put inside bag without worry it. X-mini WE is small and light, easy to carry around, so tiny that i find difficulty to search it out in my messy office bag. Battery life consider very good, i got more than 6 hours with average 60% volume on bluetooth connection.
You will get all the necessary things in the package box, product manual, X-mini sticker, wrist lanyard, a very nice “short” cable system (3.5mm audio jack/USB to microUSB cable, integrated cable organiser). Specs for the tiny mono as below,

A power switch and LED indicator can be found on the other side. LED indicator glows red while charging and blue when the speaker turned on. Now, about sound quality, we are looking at the size of this small, it produced decent mid, acceptable for both low and high frequencies. Not loud enough as a part speaker of course but powerful enough for a quieter environment like a small size office to cheer up your colleagues.
