Xiaomi has been known not only for its affordable yet great smartphones but also for a lot of different accessories. In addition, many of these accessories are actually independent gadgets and one of them is a super affordable aluminium Bluetooth speaker.
After using this device for a few days I have been really impressed with it and I strongly believe that it is one of the best budget Bluetooth speakers you can purchase on the market today. Check out a video review to find out everything you need in just over 4 mins!

Xiaomi Aluminium Bluetooth Speaker: UNBOXING
The device comes in a plain box and the contents include just the speaker itself and Chinese instruction manual. Keep it mind that there is no USB cable included but I bet you have a spare one.
Xiaomi Aluminium Bluetooth Speaker: DESIGN
Other sides of the speaker are clean except the bottom part where you can find silicone pads, which prevent speaker from sliding. That is a little but neat feature that not every manufacturer understands as a must. I have reviewed a few Bluetooth speakers, which did not have these pads and it was a nightmare to use it. They kept sliding on the table when played at high volumes, so I could not leave them without taking care of. Otherwise, they would simply fall off the table because of low frequency sound.
Overall, this speaker definitely exceeded my expectations. For under $20 you are getting a very well built device, which has some premium materials in the construction. Also, it is very compact and lightweight. In addition, it is just a tad longer than a 5.5” Letv Le 1 Pro smartphone. In fact, you can even fit this little speaker into you back pocket.
Xiaomi Aluminium Bluetooth Speaker: PAIRING
Pairing the Xiaomi bluetooth speaker is very easy as the pairing mode turns on automatically once you power on the device. All you have to do is turn on the bluetooth on your smartphone and select it. All other times the speaker will connect to your smartphone automatically in just a second.
Xiaomi Aluminium Bluetooth Speaker: SOUND QUALITY
For such a compact speaker the sound quality is very good and it even has a little bit of bass in it. In addition, you would not believe how loud it is. Literally, the speaker can’t even keep the balance at the highest volumes when you pump up the bass setting on your smartphone’s music player.
