In the market of wireless speakers now realboom - there are a lot of devices, though often they all look and sound the same type. In most cases, such devices do not even deserve attention, but today's guest managed to surprise everyone in the editorial office - in many ways with its design, which is rather difficult to meet. This is a really interesting column that has chances of success. And yes, she looks like a koala, doesn't she?
Audio Pro Addon T3 is available in variouscolors: white, black and blue, and all models are equipped with a comfortable leather handle on top. Since there is a built-in battery here, the handle will obviously not be superfluous (in comparison with the same T10 that works from the network), since you are more likely to move it.
Yes, this is not the column you want.throw in a backpack to take with you on the road, since T3 weighs more than 2 kg. However, if you transfer it from one corner of the house to another (or at the cottage), the weight is quite acceptable. The dimensions 215 x 135 x 115 mm are also not too large.
Robust housing gives this column solidity -it is immediately evident that we are dealing with a high-quality speaker system. It is very well executed with beautifully rounded edges. By the way, the legs on the front are specially made longer than the back: they tilt the front of the speaker up, providing some free space for sound diffusion. A sign of professional audio technology.
At the top of the speaker you will find a row of buttons.The controls are made in an attractive metallic color. Perhaps there are even too many of them, since there is not only a special button for pairing the speaker with the phone, but also separate buttons for switching to Bluetooth and AUX.
For example, the last two can be easily combined intoone button, and the pairing button seems like a strange solution when many other devices can go into pairing mode when you just hold the Bluetooth button. It is a little sad that even with all these buttons there are no controls for playing multimedia, so you cannot pause or skip tracks on a device connected via Bluetooth.
One of the Addon T3 chips is a USB port on the back.speaker panels that you can use to charge your smartphone. True, it gives out only 5V / 1A, so charging is not very fast. But on a picnic or on a trip, it’s the most. Inside, the T3 has a class D digital amplifier that delivers 2 × 5 W for two 2.75-inch tweeters and 15 W for a 3.5-inch woofer. On the rear panel of the case there is a phase inverter hole, and the speaker has a frequency range of 60–20,000 Hz.
Addon T3 provides confident and powerful sound fordynamics of this size. However, its low frequencies may become a bit loud on some tracks. I noticed this with the example of “My Silver Lining”, where some violins became a bit distant, but otherwise there was nothing to complain about.
It does not have a particular genre preference.manifests, to the maximum using all the above mentioned possibilities, laid down by engineers. Of course, via Bluetooth from your favorite smartphones and tablets, you can listen to music that is completely and quite good quality, but with the connection of sound sources “more interesting”, the device reveals its potential more fully.
Loved how the column copes, toexample, with the last in 2011 remastered album The Wall from Pink Floyd. The bass is very “neat”, the middle is also not lumped together. And with the classics, and with modern popular music (the last twenty or thirty years - for sure) Addon T3 also “figured out” quite adequately. Column perfectly copes with the tops, and with the middle, but sometimes bass may be lacking. The same T10 seemed to me somewhat brighter and more rewarding, but it is also larger, which, in fact, explains this impression. Stock volume, however, lacking. We didn’t twist it for a long time at the maximum volume - even for rooms with very noticeable areas, the speakers were definitely enough, and even the neighbors would be able to join in the high-pitched sound.
Battery life is rated atdecent 30 hours at medium volume or 12 hours at full volume of music, so the speakers should last for more than enough service life to be your companion at a party. Keep in mind that the speaker is not waterproof, so if you are planning a pool party, it is better to bring the column home.
In general, in Addon T3, we liked almost everything. You move around the apartment, house, summer cottage - and this Hi-Fi sound bar can move with you. In addition, its sound quality is more than decent, and the battery life is excellent. Therefore, this column is a very interesting and versatile solution for the house that can fit perfectly into almost any interior. Bluetooth will allow you to connect your favorite gadgets as a sound source, but you can get along with the cable. The sound (thanks to the applied brand solutions) is very, very worthy. Is it possible to call a minus a price of about 20 thousand rubles? I think this question should be left out.
