NYNE NB-200 Portable Bluetooth Speaker – Perfect for Biking
The NYNE NB-200 Portable Wireless Bluetooth Speaker with Bicycle Clips is a light, portable Bluetooth speaker. It developed by NYNE Mutlimedia Inc. It comes in at 3.4 x 5.7 x 2.9 inches and weighs 12.8 ounces. Its wireless Bluetooth capability works up to 33 feet away. It is compatible with all Bluetooth enabled devices including iPhones, iPads, and Android devices.
The NYNE comes with a built-in, rechargeable, non-removable lithium ion battery. On a full charge, the unit gets about five hours of battery life. The front of the unit houses the Play/Pause button, Fast Forward/Rewind button, volume controls, a Bluetooth button, and the speaker grill.
On the back, there is a power switch, 3.5 mm headphone jack, battery life indicator, and a port for the charger. The 3.5 mm headphone jack doubles as an AUX-in port and can be used to play music on devices that don't have Bluetooth capabilities. The unit uses a bass reflex speaker enclosure that uses sound from the rear of the diaphragm. This increases sound efficiency at low frequencies and it helps reduce distortion.
Out of the box, it comes with the speaker unit and a pair of bicycle clips. These clips can be used in a multitude of different situations. They can be attached to a bicycle so that the user can ride with music playing, they can be attached to a stroller so a baby or toddler has something to listen to, they can also be attached to exercise equipment so that the user can listen to music at the gym. The unit also comes with a noise cancelling microphone. This not only allows the unit to be used for Bluetooth conference calls, but for hands free calls as well.
The unit has a rounded form factor. There are no sharp edges and the device is curvy. This model only comes in a matte black finish. However, the buttons on the front of the unit have a glossy black finish. The manufacturer, NYNE, etched its name onto the unit in three separate places: The front, right below the Fast Forward/Rewind button, and on both sides of the device.
