Dbest’s Duo Mini Speakers: Exceptional Sound in a Small Package

| Quick Look Review

Dbest, located in London, England, only creates sound systems and prides itself on the quality of it’s products. The Duo Mini Speakers (PS4003)  operate on battery power (Lithium Polymer) and are recharged through USB ports. They connect to your unit through a 3.5 mm headphone jack.

Duo Mini Speakers (PS4003)

The Duo Mini Speakers weigh 5.8 ounces each (144g). The battery voltage is 3.7 V, and users can expect three to four hours to obtain a full charge. At full charge they are capable of up to 48 hours of continuous play. The speakers are available in red, black, and white.

Using the product 

After the initial charge, it was very simple to connect and set up the speakers. They worked with my iPhone 4S, my iPad third generation, my iPod nano and my Macbook Pro with equal ease. I didn’t notice much difference in the quality of the sound between the four products except for a greater volume from iPhone. I suspect that was more a function of the iPhone than the speakers. The clarity was excellent, even for my older recordings, and there was good volume as well.

The product comes nicely packaged and includes a carrying pouch as well as the speaker pair and the appropriate cables. They are not available directly from the company website, but can be found at various on-line sites and big box stores.

Are these speakers any different than similar ones that have been around for several years at about $40 a pair? Like the X-Mini brand?

I’m not familiar with that product so can not compare them for you.
