Audio Dynamix Fusion V3 Design
The Fusion V3 has the run-of-the-mill rectangular design of most Bluetooth speakers on the market today, but it has been given a softer-looking appearance with the addition of curved edges and a smooth sand blasted finish. The main enclosure is made of lightweight but tough aluminium, which is reinforced with steel on the front grille and back panel. Build quality is first class.
Multi-function volume, track skipping, call answering, play/pause, and on/off buttons are enclosed by a circular push button that sits flush on top of the speaker. The mic for hands free calling is hidden away behind the front grille and the USB charging and AUX connection port is located at the back of the speaker, the NFC connection point is also at the back of the speaker just behind the “V3 Fusion” label.
Dimensions are 7.6 x 2.2 x 2.7 inches and total weight is just over 500 grams, light enough to take out and about. All in all, the Fusion V3 comes across as a beautiful example of minimalist design applied to consumer electronics.
Audio Dynamix Fusion V3 Audio
The ADX Fusion V3 delivers stereo sound and 10 Watts of RMS power thanks to a thorough redesign job aimed at minimising the amount of background noise and at delivering more precise audio reproduction. This has been achieved by fitting the Fusion V3 with a larger amplifier and with smaller transducers (50mm), which work together to reduce distortion.
The speaker drivers are made of Kevlar to ensure you get balanced sound reproduction. The speaker’s frequency response rate has been extended on the lower end of the scale, going from 80Hz to 50Hz, which translates into better definition and depth of bass notes. Sound quality is also supplemented by the inclusion of 2 long-throw Passive Bass radiators.
Bass levels were pretty good but if I had to compare it to my ADX Atom v3, the Atom V3 would definitely win the battle for bass. The overall volume level is very good and it could fill a mid size room with ease. Audio clarity remains clean and crisp even when it’s set to 100% volume for both music playback and hands free calls.
Audio Dynamix Fusion V3 Battery Life
The manufacturing blurb says that the ADX Fusion V3 Bluetooth Speaker will provide up to 20 hours of playback. In my view, this might be a little ambitious, but I guess it depends on what you’re listening to and the volume setting you select, I managed to get about 18hours 54minutes after the initial recharge. Just short, but still a pretty respectable playback time in my opinion.
Nevertheless, I find that the battery life is more than adequate and I’d rarely use any speaker for more than a few hours without recharging anyway. In terms of battery life, there are basically no problems in my view. This will definitely get you through 2 weeks if you’re a casual music player.
Audio Dynamix Fusion V3 Connection Options
In terms of its Bluetooth connectivity, I have had no difficulties whatsoever. It connects to my iPhone 6 and Samsung Galaxy S6 in a flash. My laptop doesn’t have Bluetooth so I’ve had to use a USB dongle to give it this connectivity and even with that, the ADX Fusion V3 paired immediately. When used within the 15 metre range recommended, there was no signal degradation at all during testing.
The Fusion V3 comes with an advanced Bluetooth profile (V4.0), which in addition to facilitating robust wireless connections between devices, is known for its superb energy-saving properties. Moreover, the speaker’s Bluetooth range has been improved by an impressive 17 feet, going from the standard 32 feet to 49 feet. Alternative connectivity options include one-touch pairing via NFC and wired connection using a standard 3.5mm cable.
