The Qube2 Portable Sound Evolution Review

The Qube2 Portable Sound Evolution is a funky little portable Bluetooth speaker that measures at 80mm x 38mm x 38mm. This 6W speaker also has a stylish anodized aluminium casing and includes Passive Vibrating Bass (PVB) technology which really pumps out the sound. Apart from Bluetooth, the device will accommodate any audio device with a 3.5mm input.

The first thing that you notice with the Qube2 is how tiny the speaker system is and of course the aluminium finishing that makes the product stand out, especially with its metallic colouring. The product also comes in five different colours that include red, black, silver, blue and purple.

From our testing, we found the Qube2 a professional designed product that boast some great workmanship and quality. The side of the device contains the two 3 watt speakers with the end containing the power button (play/pause), LED and an input for charge/audio.

However, before we began testing the product, we first charged the unit via the included microUSB cable. The manual states that the product requires around 2.5 hours to fully charge the portable speaker or 3 hours if it is new. When the device is fully charged, the red LED will be disabled. Once charged, we connected the device via Bluetooth to our iPhone 5S which was an extremely simple process.

To connect the device to a Bluetooth product, you need to pair the device. On an iPhone, this is done through Settings, Bluetooth and then select the device to pair. The manual states that you need to enter the password which is 0000, however we did not need to enter this code. Once paired, it will stay in the memory of your device (e.g. iPhone 5s) and no further settings are required.

The next part was where the Qube2 shines. The sound quality of the Qube2 is phenomenal for its size and total 6 watts with the Passive Vibrating Bass technology really produces crystal clear and loud sound. Interestingly enough, this portable speaker was far superior than our small standalone iPhone dock. The Qube2 created good levels, balances and some wicked bass. This is easily the best pocket-sized portable speaker that we’ve had the pleasure of using.

Final Thoughts

The Qube2 Portable Sound Evolution is a brilliant pocket-sized portable speaker that ticks all the right boxes in terms of size, quality and setup.

The sound quality for something this small is phenomenal, 5 out 5!
