Crave Curve Mini Bluetooth Speaker Review
|USB Charge Voltage||5V, 0.5A|
Design and Build
It is a very small cube-shaped speaker with a curved design at the back. It looks more like a medium-sized puzzle cube. The Speaker is made up of metal with a neat and clean finish and sturdy packing. Encased in a solid metal body, the speaker looks very elegant. The size is very handy and it can be easily carried in a bag or pockets.
It gets a well-designed speaker grill with a Medium-Sized CRAVE logo on the front.The build quality of the speaker is also very strong. During our test, one of the staff members accidentally dropped it on the floor, as a result, there was not a single scratch on its body and there was no impact on its working.
The sound quality from Curve Mini Bluetooth Speaker is hard to believe looking at its compact design. The Audio output is reasonably loud enough to enjoy your dance moves in a small place or silent outdoors. The vocals are clear and the bass effect is also good. However, bass lovers will not be happy with this, as the speaker is made to deliver crisp sound and clear vocals instead of high bass effects. Also, at high volumes, it shows no signs of distortion that most speakers show under this budget.
Do not expect very loud sounds, as it is a very compact speaker it does not deliver too loud sound like other speakers in this budget. This is its main negative aspect. Users who like crisp and clear Sounds will love it. Also, it is one of the best speakers which you can use while playing movies on your laptop or mobiles.
The Crave Curve Mini Bluetooth Speaker comes with a 500 mAh Li-ion battery, which is claimed to deliver a backup of up to 10 hours. It takes less than 2.5 hours to get full charged from 0-100%. During our testing, it delivers 6 hours and 25 minutes of battery backup of non-stop playback at higher volume levels. The company has also provided fast-charging USB cable in the box.
We have never encountered any issues related to connectivity while using this speaker. You can connect the speaker via Bluetooth and it has a 3.5mm audio jack on the back for connecting devices via aux cable. In terms of connectivity, it is one of the best speakers available in the market.
The Curve Mini not only features great connectivity but a built-in microphone for answering calls hands-free with Bluetooth connectivity. The Clarity of Microfone is amazing, it is one of the best speakers which offers wireless calling functionality.
