Veho M8 Wireless Speaker #review

This is my first product review for some time and this Veho M8 speaker was ordered from AO.com. The full product description is Veho VSS-015-M8 – Silver. The parcel came very quickly, in fact, the next day and I received some texts to say it was on its way. It was delivered in a 1 hours delivery slot (09:04 –10:04) and the text named the driver.  It was delivered on time and undamaged. So far everything was faultless and so I opened the box!

In the Box

In the box, which is really strong and padded with foam, is the silver coloured speaker and two leads. One lead is a USB lead for charging and the other has a 3.5mm plug on each end for connecting it by wire to your devices. I would recommend keeping the box for transporting the speaker.

Operating buttons

There are 5 buttons on the back for operating the Veho M8 speaker. These are easy to understand. From right to left is the on/off, phone, – and + volume and the Bluetooth.

Charging

The first thing to do is charge the battery. The charge time is up to 4 or 5 hours and it won’t work from the mains power. As you can see in the picture, I used my LG mains adapter.  A mains adapter isn’t supplied with this speaker. The mains adapters are fairly inexpensive or you can charge from the USB port on your laptop. A red LED lights up when it’s charging.

Once charged I tried it with a Bluetooth connection to my smartphone. Search for the speaker and on your list of Bluetooth devices it comes up as Veho M8. It connects quite easily. I turned the volume up full on the speaker and then controlled it from my phone. The sound is rich in bass and I played a variety of music as I tested to see how long the battery would last. I have played everything from heavy rock to classical and it performed well. One classical piece when I first tried it caused some distortion mid-range. I think that was because the battery was low so make sure you give it a full charge. I tried it connected by the cable that was supplied and my phone assumed I had connected an earpiece and turned down the volume to protect my ears!

Overall

Teenagers will love this speaker! It looks cool and is quite rugged. It sounded quite loud in my living room which is quite large. The speaker is rated at 10W per channel stereo, which we can assume is peak to peak and maximum.  The suggested retail price is £139.95 on the Veho website so the AO.com price of £69 looks reasonable by comparison. It was obviously designed for the high-end of the market. The only thing I don’t like is the electronic on/off switch. There is sometimes a delay when you switch it on. I also think a mains adapter should have been included so that is something to note before you buy. I do own a small ‘boom box’ and the sound quality is comparable to that but not as good as my car stereo.  So overall, it is a great speaker and probably the best of the Bluetooth speakers. I didn’t try the speaker as a hands-free to make a phone call but everything goes through the speaker including the sounds I get with notifications from social media.

That’s it for today. Hopefully, AO will send me more products to review. An independent review helps both suppliers and consumers. I think most people buying this product will be tech savvy to the extent they are familiar with Bluetooth and so will be pleased with the product.
