The most important aspect of a Bluetooth speaker must be the sound. It appears Simplicity focused more on the materials and skimped on the bass.
Apple, you either love them or you hate them. As the iPhone 7 makes its debut, we can start to say goodbye to the 3.5mm headphone jack. Yes, there is a lightning to 3.5mm jack adaptor, but this is likely included to bridge a generation gap and ultimately temporary. I would not be surprised if Samsung and other device manufacturers follow the leader and the 3.5 jack may go the way of the dodo. Luckily, Bluetooth technology has been steadily advancing, since its inception in 1989. Although manufacturers are currently utilizing Bluetooth BT 4.1, BT 2.1 remains one of the most common profiles.
I have received a Bluetooth speaker from Simplicity to review. The speaker arrives in a 3 3/4″ x 3 3/4″ x 2 1/2″ white box with the logo “Simplicity from precision machining” on the cover. Along the bottom right you will notice a slogan “Enjoy your life Portable Wireless speaker.” The sides of the box reproduce the information displayed on the cover. The base does provide some additional information: hands-free feature, super bass, 6-hour speaker life, IOS/Android support. Inside, you will find a very heavy 9.5-ounce speaker with a brushed appearance and a 2 3/4″ black mesh top. The dark nickel appearance is very classy and looked great sitting on my desk. The finish is uninterrupted except for the microSD card slot, the 3.5mm jack and micro USB port on the back. Turning the speaker upside down, the function buttons are on the bottom. IN order from left to right, you will find volume down/previous track button, Answer/Hang-up button, Volume Up/next button, power on/off button
