Bluetooth speakers, there’s definitely not a shortage of them out there. For the most part they’re just relatively decent speakers cased inside a cheap plastic shell. Sond Audio are a relatively new UK-based company that are committed to creating high-quality audio products. They claim that they don’t release a new product until they’re certain that it meets their exacting standards. Let’s see how well the Bluetooth NTC Wooden Speaker performs.
The NTC wooden speaker sports a very stylish and modern wooden exterior, and also houses two 5W speakers and one 12W speaker.
In total there are six buttons on the speaker, with the volume buttons doubling up as next and previous buttons.
From left to right, you’ve got the Bluetooth connection button and previous track button, then the power button and the play / pause button, and finally the AUX / FM button and the next track button.
There doesn’t appear to be any branding on the speaker, apart from on the rear. This makes for a nice clean look, but you’d think that something small and subtle in a corner would be better than nothing…
The speaker is compatible with a whole range of different devices, including iPhones, iPods and many other bluetooth-enabled devices. If you’re looking to hook a device that doesn’t have bluetooth then that’s entirely possible thanks to the AUX input jack on the rear of the speaker.
The rear of the speaker also features two USB charging ports to help keep your music going for longer, or to even charge up a separate device. And then you’ve also got the FM radio antenna input jack for use with the built-in radio. The speaker is mains powered.
