If you are looking for an affordable Bluetooth speaker that combines exclusive design, a solid build and great audio performance, the MonkeyCanz 10W Bluetooth speaker will not disappoint.
This is an extremely versatile gadget that is perfectly suited for both indoor and outdoor use and packs a range of practical features and great technical specs.
The first thing you will notice about this MonkeyCanz speaker is its solid design. The actual speaker unit is encased in a rectangular casing with mesh inserts. Rounded edges give it a more attractive appearance, as well as stability and the option of using the speaker in upright position or to lay it horizontally.
Moreover, a high-grade silicone body offers a marked visual improvement over the plastic casing we’re used to seeing in budget speakers, while at the same time it prevents scratches and keeps the weight of this device under 450g.
On-Off, volume, hands-free speakerphone and track control buttons are placed at the side or top of the speaker (depending on its position), allowing for an uncluttered look.
Tough and durable
This MonkeyCanz Bluetooth speaker has been designed and built to last and to perform well even under tough outdoor conditions. The speaker’s IPX4 rating makes this device resistant to dust, splashes and vibrations, which means that you will not have to worry when taking it with you on camping, fishing or cycling trips.
Multiple connectivity options
This speaker is equipped with multiple connectivity options to ensure that you always enjoy a strong and reliable signal. Bluetooth 4.0 is the default connectivity method. In addition to making the device easy to pair, this technology reduces battery consumption so that you enjoy top-quality sound on the go for longer.
This Bluetooth speaker also supports NFC technology, which simplifies the pairing process even further by allowing you to connect the speaker to the device of your choice with a simple gesture. To use this speaker with non-Bluetooth enabled devices, simply use the 3.5mm cable provided.
Booming sound on the go
Audio performance is top-notch considering the price of this Bluetooth speaker. The MonkeyCanz MC-201 comes with two (loud) channel speakers and two 40mm drivers that deliver a combined 10 Watts of powerful and true-to-life dialogue, music and lyrics.
Also contributing to excellent sound quality is the speaker’s wide frequency response, which covers sound across the 60Hz – 20KHz range. While this does not give you high-fidelity sound, it allows you to enjoy deep bass and an overall rich sound performance.
Longer range, longer battery life
Range and battery life just got better with the MonkeyCanz MC-201, which has one of the longest ranges available for portable speakers in this price category.
This Bluetooth speaker can reproduce high-quality sound over 33 feet whenever it is used in outdoor areas, and it’s fitted with a high-capacity 2,000mAh lithium-ion battery that takes approximately 3 hours to get a full charge. Playback time is outstanding at approximately 12 hours, making this device the ideal companion for long trips.
