Design And Build
If you are a music lover like me then you will definitely feel nostalgia after seeing these Speakers. It reminded me of the time when we use to listen to songs on the radio or stereo. The speaker speaks for itself. With a great built and superior quality material, the speaker looks too good to be of that price range. Honestly, when I took the speaker in hand I didn’t felt like it is a mid-budget speaker. The design is so perfectly made that there is not even a single flaw that I could point out.
Moreover, the front and back side of the Speaker is covered with fine quality woven material which gives it a rich look. It has only 3 buttons on the front to play, pause, skip tracks, increase or decrease the volume, or to pick up/drop an incoming call. In order to increase or decrease the volume, you have to press and hold the +/- button respectively. To skip to the next or previous track you just have to click the + or – button once.
Further, the speaker features a high-quality audio output which could be seen on the logo of the speaker. They only come in grey color option.
The small form factor makes the device super portable with a weight of 620g and 18cm width, portable enough to carry around or keep it in your bag while traveling. On the bottom of the speaker, there is a silicone grip pad which allows it to stick to the surface providing a good hold on any surface.
You will get multiple options for connecting to the dodocool speakers. It supports Bluetooth 4.1 for wireless connectivity. I myself had no problem connecting it to different devices like my smartphone and laptop.
There are multiple ports on the back side of the speaker. It has a USB port, TF card(micro SD) slot with a support of up to 32GB. 3.5mm AUX allows using the speakers with a cable if desired. You will also find a port for charging the speakers there.
The Bluetooth range is up to 10 meter which is at par.
You can receive calls from the speaker itself. Just press the round button in the middle. It has a built-in microphone. A pretty good feature allowing handsfree connectivity. In the case of an incoming call, the music on the speaker will stop automatically. However, don’t expect a clear call quality in case of surroundings with a lot of ambient sounds.
It has a battery capacity of 1200mAh which takes up to 4 hours to fully charge. An impressive 6 hours of battery backup with a 30 day standby time. The LED indicator is red and stays lit when charging. Once it’s fully charged the indicator will turn off. It can be charged with the help of the USB cable that comes with the box with an Input power of DC 5V. You can even play music and charge simultaneously. Unfortunately, they don’t provide with an adapter. Use any existing adapter with low power that you have.
Now comes the important part of the review. I was quite impressed with the sound quality that it delivered. One thing that all music lovers want is to hear the song as it is, which most speakers of this range fail to give. Whereas this speaker played the song with perfect treble and bass even on full volume. The bass is clear when it is kept on any surface. You can feel it yourself. Only the point where the bass decrease is when you are carrying it.
I tried it with smartphones and laptops and it didn’t disappoint me anywhere. If you are listening to it inside a room then it gives a perfect listening experience. However, inside a room, you won’t be needing 100% volume, 80% volume would surely be enough for that. Good for listening on a 100% volume with your friends while in an outing or get-togethers.

- Multi audio source channels
- Hands-free calling
