Cygnett Micro mini rechargeable speaker full review

The Cygnett Micro mini rechargeable speaker is a lightweight extremely portable pocket-sized addition to your iPod or iPhone that won't break the bank or the lining of your jacket on your travels.

Resembling a cross between a mobile phone and retro swimming goggles, the speaker measures in at 47mm high and 105mm wide with a depth of 23mm. Offering a surprisingly big sound for such a small unit, the Cygnett Micro is sonically sound although clearly limited by its portability.

Playback is fine although the speaker does suffer a little distortion occasionally at full volume and needs to be positioned in such a way that the unit doesn't rattle. The Micro comes without any audio controls - bass and treble for instance - and volume settings need to be adjusted via your iPod or iPhone.

Rechargeable via a lithium-ion battery, the unit gave just under three hours playback from a three hour charge. Cygnett recommends between two and four hours for charging. An on/off switch on the side of the speaker saves your battery when not in use, and a red light indicates when the unit is on.

The Micro is available in a choice of three colours - Black-Red, Black-Pink or Black-Silver and is suitable for iPhone, iPod, Mp3 player, computer and portable DVD player. The Cygnett Micro has a SRP of £19.99, but if you shop around it can likely be found cheaper. The speaker is available online from Amazon and iWorld.
