You won't believe your ears!




Hi Mi Community,

Today's X-EGG.Review is all about the Lofree Poison Speaker (EP203)

Who doesn't love to listen to music?
Listening to our favourite songs makes a human being: Feel better, Concentrate, relieve pain, boost creativity, improve social skill and much more.
Studies revealed while playing music to an unborn child will make the baby, once given birth, sleep better.


Shenzhen Lofree Culture co.,ltd. Is known for bringing the best products in its class while respecting the vintage vibes giving their designs a retro look. While waiting for the Poison Speaker to arrive I took the time to learn about Lofree as a company and made an exclusive article:

What's in the Box?











Included:

Lofree Poison Speaker
MicroUSB to USB charging cable

Warranty Card



Design:

I've never seen such a well designed portable Bluetooth speaker.
The vintage look makes this device become an eyecatcher everywhere you place it.


The Poison speaker is available in Turquoise Blue, Pure White, Venetian Red, or Olive Green.


The compact size, just 18x10,5x7 cm, is ideal to take this with you.
Use the case or attach the carry strap directly to the Poison speaker's handles on the side.

*Almost as wide as the Mix 2s


*I attached the strap to the case


The front grill looks cool, it's made out of plastic and resembles the 50's chrome fronts which protects the speakers.
On top of the front you can see the FM tuner panel with a range of 87 to 108 MHz.

*Front Grill + FM Tuner Panel

To Change radio channels you need to turn the knob on top of the Poison.
The small antenna will light up green when the connection is at is best.

*Old skool Knob

On the left side you can see 4 buttons.
Press the power button for 3 seconds to turn the Poison on or off .
Press it shortly to switch between 3 different modes: Bluetooth, AUX or FM.


Use the Bluetooth/Play-Pause button to connect the speaker with a phone, tablet, music player or computer.
This button also tells the speaker to pause or continue the process of listening to music.
The other 2 buttons gives you the ability to control the volume.

On the back you notice a breathtaking shiny bass driver.
It shines that well you could use it as a mirror!
Furthermore you can see an AUX port and a micro-USB port.


Lofree managed to redesign the feet as it is made out of soft rubber and function as shock absorbers to prevent rattling.






In Use:
A review about a music device without showing readers how it performs is in my eyes a bad review. I have use the Xiaomi Mi 9 to record videos. Unfortunately it won't give you an exact result but it gives you an idea how great the sound is.

Sound:
The music that comes out of the Poison is EXCELLENT!
The volume is loud enough to fill a whole room.

The two 10-watt speakers in combination with Digital signal Processing
from Waves® Audio (Visit website)assure you will have a great and rich audio experience!

Sound quality + Range.

It's satisfying to hear and FEEL the bass kicking around!
As said before, the bass driver is on the backside
and can move freely to make sure you can bump your head to your favourite songs!
Its amazing to just observe the bass driver handle the low tones with ease!

Bass test 1:


Bass test 2:
It had a little difficulty standing firm at the first big bass drop.
The rubber feet managed to take a good grip on this lightweight garden table.
Look at the bass driver! Don't you think this is mad sick?



Listening Modes:
AUX: Connect the cable that's included to any output device that can play music.

Bluetooth:
Setting up is easy.
Switch to Bluetooth mode  Press and hold the Bluetooth button to make the 'antenna' blink in blue color.
All you have to do know is find and select  'Poison M@Lofree' in your device list.

FM Mode:
Switch to FM Mode and turn the dial to your preferred FM channel.
Once the speaker finds a good source the 'antenna' will light up in green.
Really love this feature but I must admit not all FM channels have a great connection.

Video of testing Bluetooth and FM mode:



Verdict:
A Must-have for  music lovers out there that wants great sound in a compact portable sized speaker.
Yes, there are more options, like the JBL charge etc. But none come close to this stylish design.
Even though this device came out in 2017 it can compete against its direct competition, and outperform the most. I'm a pleased owner and anyone who I've shown the LoFree Poison M was a blown away

Yes, it would be a great feature..But I think more ppl are ditching the USB pendrive as most stream music..

a dab+ radio instead of FM would be a great feature..and a battery indicator in percentage:)...

maybe a collaboration between Xiaomi and Lofree..Making the PERFECT portable speaker would be a dream for me to come true:)
