Like most speakers we talked about this week, this one as well was released to the public this Summer. It was made available for purchase at Amazon on July 2, 2013 and got a surprising warm welcome from folks all around the country.

Most users compliment its resistant design, which tells me that the unit will mostly benefit those that plan to carry it around, not place on the night stand and leave it in one place. Haven't personally tried it outdoors, but people who have seem to like it just as much; I guess outdoorsy people will be thrilled with this little unit up until winter comes and bad weather ruins their plans.

Pros:
  • Great packaging - 'the next Apple'
  • Quality built-in mic for hands-free calling
Cons:
  • No USB - AC-DC power adapter included

And now let's talk about the facts, and we'll start with probably the most important thing when it comes to audio equipment - and that's audio delivery (go figures). The entire sound delivery system and audio capabilities are given by two front facing full-range neodymium drivers, and one rear passive bass radiator - which seem to give out a surprisingly full sound quality. from just this little. Some reviewers state the MP260's bass to be surprising with help from the rear passive radiator, but don't expect it to be earth shattering. The overall sound quality is not only surprising but can also compete with far more expensive and bigger units. Also, a user stated that the Edifier USA M260 Extreme Connect Portable Bluetooth Speaker has the least amount of distortion from any other (several) speakers he previously owned over the years.

As I mentioned earlier, portability is one factor to consider when purchasing this little Edifier unit; because not only is it excellent due to its light weight structure and small-ish size, but also seems to be considered tough and sturdy built by those who own it and use it outside their house. They advertise it as perfect for home, pool and beach - I hope that's the case because I'll put it to test next week. It also features water resistant elements in its built and design - thus making it even more desirable for those that love the outdoors. Charging the 1400 mAh rechargeable lithium-ion internal battery is quick and easy, using the USB source (or a separate bought adapter); thus making it even more perfect for outdoor usage - considering the battery's 12 hour playback capability.

Now, as for streaming capabilities this unit has been praised and re-praised by many (including myself). It features something that many companies forget in the last couple of years - Micro SD card, amazing for some. It also has USB audio streaming capability, and a 3.5 mm Aux input for endless connection options. And last but certainly not least is the king of streaming features - Bluetooth (A2DP and AVRCA). The pairing capability works for a distance of 10 m (30 ft). But streaming is not the only thing Bluetooth is used for, a built-In mic allows you to answer and make hands-free calls. The speakerphone option sound quality is good at both ends, so no complains there whatsoever.

Basically - if portability and full range, rich sound at a affordable price point, is what you're looking for, the Edifier M260 speaker is for you. Overall this unit gives you sound quality without having to carry any wired connection anywhere around you. Over 50 users and I recommend this unit!
