Birchbox Breakdown

The name may be a throwback, but this gadget is as cutting-edge as they come. A portable speaker with a built-in mic and a sturdy nylon cord, it serves equally well as a handset or speakerphone for calls. What’s more, multiple MONOCLES can be daisy-chained together for conference calls or amplified sound.

How to Use

Just plug its standard 3.5-mm jack into your smartphone, tablet, or laptop and enjoy.

Bummer

I was pretty disappointed with this speaker. It looks cool, but the sound is very tinny, (if that makes sense), and it vibrates really loudly if you turn it up. The charge also doesn't last long at all, and if you want to listen while it's plugged in, the charging cord is like an inch long so it's rather inconvenient. Save your money, don't buy this speaker.

hearing aide needed

I have the same complaint as other reveiwers. The sound is way to soft even when you twist the speaker all way until is stops. If the sound quality wasn't so quiet it would be the perfect little speaker. Cute color and easy to use.

Blah

Maybe my device is faulty but the sound cuts in and out on this and isn't consistent at all! It crackles often when I turn it up and doesn't always switch to amplified volume when I turn the base. I can see how this would have great potential if it worked right but mine sucks.

Great Little Speaker

I'm enjoying my little speaker; great style, great sound at a great price. The sound clarity is amazing for a little device. Everything comes through; strings, voices and bass! Only draw back is the charge life, only about 2hrs, but it charges real quick. One reviewer talked about the sound being "small or tiny" Please note that this speaker works two ways - a small sound is produced if you simply plug it in w/o turning it on. Twist the base of the speaker to get a full sound!

relies on your device's speakers

i was hoping that i would feel like some of the positive reviewers however this is not a speaker at all. This device is only as loud or not even as your own device. So if you phone has great speakers the volume with this device would be the same or less . It is not a speaker that enhances the volume of your own device. Super disappointed. I thought it would be great for driving to have a handsfree experience when talking but it's so hard to hear the caller that it's not worth it. Don't buy. I actually received the black free version with purchase.
