At the weekend I went to Gorbushka to buy something necessary for the house, the usual chores. But, as you know, you can't just walk there, especially if you love technology. Too many temptations. A bunch of interesting old technology, straight eyes run up. Well, you can't help but go to the Sony store on the ground floor, there is an excellent assortment and you can even find something that has long been discontinued and forgotten. For example, a speaker Sony Ericsson MS430.
I could not help but buy it, because the price is 1290 rubles. And I remember that the thing is not bad and at least because of the design it was worth spending this small amount. Let me remind you that it appeared at the end of 2010 and did not sell for long.
What now, what are your impressions? The batteries in the kit must be thrown away immediately, they have deteriorated. The thing still makes an excellent impression, a cylinder made of aluminum, a 3.5 mm plug on the rotating cover, which allows you to connect the speaker to smartphones, players and tablets.
The Sony Xperia Z3 is very quiet and not interesting at all – I don't know why. Maybe because of the connector design. But when paired with this smartphone, only low frequencies are heard, and there are no others at all. Not worth using.
You shouldn't use iPhone 6 Plus and iPad Mini, the column is quiet. The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is unexpectedly loud, and can be used in a hotel room or at work. With the Sony Walkman M player (this is a player with a bluetooth headset) the volume is extremely high, here the speaker works to its fullest.
What conclusion should be drawn? In general, it's best not to buy old accessories. Unless only from a sense of nostalgia. Let this aluminum thing stand on the table and please the eye. But, if you want an ultra-small speaker for all your gadgets, you better take a look at the X-mini devices.
