I wasn’t really in the market for a Bluetooth speaker, but my wife was interested in something for her classroom. Something small, cheap, portable and easy to use – something she could take to school (she’s a teacher) and use to listen to music when class isn’t in session. Since her students have light fingers, she really wanted something she could afford to lose.
Of course – she wanted all this AND it needs to sound great.
Looking for something under $30, I ran across the TT-SK01 at Amazon. The TT-SK01 (just TT from now on) comes in a box smaller than you think. When you open the small box, you find a little black “egg”. It’s little, solid but not too hefty and rather attractive as cheap electronics tend to go.
Further inspection of the box reveals a short, multi-language manual that actually tells you exactly what you need to know – in honest to goodness English. Finally, there is a flat, USB cable included – again, remarkably decent quality for a cheap Chinese piece of electronics. Mine is even red. Nice compliment to the black egg. Read more
