PROS

  • The Bass is stylish with a unique tilted teardrop profile, and it is rubberized for indoor and outdoor use.
  • Its price is relatively small, considering its huge, loud, bassy sound.
  • The speaker can charge mobile devices by USB, whether it's plugged in or on the go.

CONS

  • It's too big to be considered travel friendly. Even portability-wise it's a little awkward because of the poor positioning of the built-in carrying handle.
  • Although the large buttons along the top are easy to use, a sliding power switch that is designed to prolong battery life in addition to the power button is confusing.
  • The white version is susceptible to showing dirt especially when used outdoors while camping, barbecuing or tailgating.
The stylish and rechargeable Nyne Bass--a Bluetooth speaker available in black or white--is more than a foot wide and half a foot tall, and it weighs almost 7 pounds. So while it is meant to be a portable wireless speaker, it is relatively big. The Bass is loud and rated for 10 hours of playback, and it offers NFC pairing with a tap of your device, along with speakerphone capabilities. It comes with an audio cable to connect nonwireless audio sources, plus a proprietary plug and four international adapters for use around the globe.

It may be a tad bright for some people's tastes -- there's a little treble push -- but for the most part it manages to avoid having a harsh edge and can play at higher volumes without distorting.

… it was songs like those that spawned an annoying whistling sound from the tiny port at the back of the speaker. The sound was fairly well camouflaged when the midrange got cooking, but it was there whenever major grooves made their presence known...

What does help is that the Bass is raised off the floor about an inch giving the speaker breathing room. This setup can also cut down on unwanted vibrations when on a desk or table keeping the speaker in place.

It’s about the size of a big loaf of bread, so it fits in a gym bag but not in most backpacks.

Delivering rich, full sound at lower volume levels, the unit doesn't lose much ground when you crank it up.
