Welcome to Myce’s review of the dodocool Hi-Resolution Rechargeable Stereo Wireless Speaker (Model DA149).
dodocool is a Chinese manufacturer that is targeting the accessory market with high quality products, at aggressive price points. Please read on to see what we make of the DA149.
Here is dodocool’s specification for the DA149 –
The DA149 supports audio from multiple sources, including micro-SD, USB, traditional AUX-in (3.5mm), and most notably Bluetooth.
As shown in the picture above the DA149 includes two 3W, wide range, speakers.
The DA149 is primarily designed to be used with Bluetooth enabled Smart Phones, Tablets, and Laptops. It includes a built in microphone so that it may be used to answer incoming calls when coupled with a Smart Phone.
Here is a picture of the speaker.
I tested the DA149 attached via Bluetooth to my Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro S.
I found the speaker pleasant to use across a range of music type and radio programmes. One has to have realistic expectations of this type of product and, for example, earth shaking levels of bass cannot be expected. At relatively high levels of volume the speaker does distort somewhat and clarity is lost. The DA149 is however quite capable of filling a small room with an atmospheric sound, and I enjoyed using it.
I also found the DA149 to be aesthetically pleasing – it looks good, is well designed, is easy to use, and has intuitive tactile controls (for example volume can be controlled by pressing the + and – controls on the front of the speaker). The build quality is excellent for the price.
I didn’t quite get the play life (7 hours) that dodocool claims for the 2,000mAh rechargeable battery but I did achieve near to 6 hours with a reasonably high level of volume.
In conclusion, I feel that the dodocool DA149 is a pleasing and effective product.
I found the dodocool DA149 speaker available from Amazon UK (I went via dodocool.com) for GBP £37.99.
I am pleased to award the dodocool DA149 speaker our rating of "Excellent".
