“Sound beyond size,” claims the packaging of the X-mini Capsule Speaker. This tiny collapsible speaker pops open with a twist, and a built-in cable jacks into whatever audio device one desires. With the flick of a switch, and a press of Play, sweet tunes fill the air for up to 20 hours. Does the full package deliver? Read on to find out. X-mini was nice enough to hook us up with one of the UNO Capsule Speakers at CES 2013.

The X-mini Uno Capsule Speaker comes in a plastic box with its name and pictures of the devices to which it can connect displayed on the front. There’s also mention of an improved bass driver and a portable form factor. On the rear, it again highlights the ceramic driver, a wide range of compatible devices (everything with a 3.5 mm jack!), a “Buddy Jack” feature, the BXS bass expansion system, and a 20 hour battery.
The sides and bottom show some of the specifications, package contents, and various awards. The package contains the speaker, some documentation, a sticker, a micro USB charging cable with a 3.5 mm jack on the end, and a carrying pouch. Mine didn’t have a carrying pouch in the box, though.
