As many of you know, I often retreat to the sanctuary of my allotment and greenhouse at every opportunity. I love its peacefulness and love the social nature of meeting like-minded gardeners. However, there are times when I miss listening to a radio station, or music and whilst some use small portable radios, I've opted for a portable Bluetooth speaker which interfaces with my iPod or iPhone. It's small, compact and has an inbuilt rechargeable battery which makes powering it so convenient and easy to keep powered.
One major weakness of small speaker systems is the lack of bass and this isn't completely solved by the Veho. Its small size makes it almost impossible to overcome the problem of producing deep, rich bass notes, however, it makes a very respectable attempt at trying to.
The Veho speaker system is very well equipped:
rechargeable battery pack (built in)
micro USB for charging
audio in jack socket (3.5)
micro SD card slot for playing music directly from memory storage
The controls on top of this unit are also well designed, with volume, skip forward / back, and power (both stop and on/off.)
