Xiaomi XMWXCLYYXO1ZM Bluetooth Speaker: Design
The Xiaomi XMWXCLYYXO1ZM Bluetooth Speaker keeps it basic with the design. It looks akin to the popular rugged Bluetooth speakers from Logitech’s Ultimate Ears brand. A woven mesh wraps around the speaker, and it isn’t of great quality. You can see that the speaker has been built to a cost, but the plastic-coated material should be easy enough to wipe clean if you drop a beverage on it. The speaker is IPX7-rated, so it can live poolside.
Xiaomi Mi Bluetooth comes with a uber-cool design that is going to appease the younger lot. It features an elongated structure and mesh design. Something we have seen in more expensive speakers such as the JBL and Sony. But Xiaomi’s build quality is at par with the JBL and Sony speakers that sell at higher prices.
The speaker is wrapped in a fabric mesh with an anti-slip surface at the bottom. Unlike what we have seen in many speakers, the mesh design is not a dust magnet. So even if you find dust gathering on it, you could simply wipe them off with a cloth. On the top, there is a rubber patch that houses the volume buttons, a power button, a TWS pairing button, and a regular Bluetooth pairing button. The buttons are conveniently clicky, and you would not have to exert any amount of pressure to press the button. In one of the speaker’s ends, a lanyard cable is attached for you to hang it around your wrist or hook it to a doorknob.
The Mi Portable Bluetooth Speaker supports Bluetooth 5.0, and you will not have issues with connection stability.
The Xiaomi XMWXCLYYXO1ZM Bluetooth Speaker offers the surprisingly pleasant sound quality, given its affordable price. The speaker packs two 16W drivers placed in a forward-facing configuration.
The Mi Portable Bluetooth Speaker packs a 2,600mAh battery and is rated for 13 hours of playback though this figure will vary depending on your playback volume. With close to seven hours of music listening, the speaker still reported a 60% charge, and Xiaomi’s claims should hold true.
