Ekoplay Bluetooth Speaker Unboxing and Review
Meet the buttons LOL
The Ekoplay has a very classic classy feel and it's made of really good materials. Ekoplay's body is coated with rubberized paint just like with Ekopack 9600. The mini speaker feels that it would last long if used with proper care. The cable of the 3.5mm jack also feels nice, however I would have liked it better if it's detachable.

You can easily figure out how to use the Ekoplay because it's design is pretty simple. It also comes with a manual that will act as your guide. To open and close the device, just long press the play button for 3 seconds, then you can pair it with your Bluetooth player. Ekoplay also have volume controls and next and back buttons. To charge the ekoplay just use the in-line 3.5mm jack and connect it to the usb charger.

Features

Surprisingly, Ekoplay is more than just a Bluetooth speaker. It has a built-in microphone that anyone can use for calls. All the other mini speakers I've tried didn't have that feature.
Based on our test, when playing music from time to time, the Ekoplay lasted for 7 hours.  When used via Bluetooth without standby, it lasted for 2 hours and 50 mins which is very near  the promised battery life. To save battery, you may use the Ekoplay via the in-line 3.5 mm plug which could last up to approximately 6 hours of usage.

Sound Quality

Ekoplay's Bluetooth speaker is loud enough to fill our office with music! However, I would suggest to use it with moderate volume only as it sounds the best that way. The overall sound quality is respectable, the sound signature is dark, the bass is tight, but it lacks subwoofer effect. The highs are respectable and the mids are clear enough for a casual listener.

Sound test! :)

Verdict

For the price, I can say that Ekoplay is a decent sounding Bluetooth highly portable mini speaker. The Ekoplay is already jam-packed with features and the cable improvement will be a huge plus in the future releases. One of Ekoplay's feature that I like most is it can be used when doing group calls. It's very handy and could be passed around easily. The volume is loud enough that you can clearly understand the person you're conversing with. It also does all the basic mini speaker functions - you can boost the volume of your laptop / phone / media player for your music and movie enjoyment! :)
