Otone Audio introduces its first docking station, the Soundship Micro

Otone Audio’s first entry into the speaker dock market is the SoundShip Micro, a stylish portable speaker which can also be used as a Sound dock for Android devices. Read on to find out more.

 

 

 

 

This device is marketed by OTONE Audio as “perfect for providing the soundtrack to the summer” and a picture of it with a Smartphone docked is shown below.

On first glance, the feature you notice immediately is the design, it’s got this space-orbital type design which actually intrigues me and I like it. The Soundship Micro features a rechargeable Lithium Ion battery and OTONE Audio promises of up to 10 hours of portable playback. Size wise, it’s 115x250x45 mm but still packs two 40mm full range drivers with a combined audio output of 6W delivering clean and crisp audio.

This docking station features a cool “push & pop” mechanism featuring an oval disc with OTONE’s signature green colour. When pushed, the striking oval disc not only reveals the connectivity options but also allows the speaker to stand at a 45 degree angle to project the sound better. The SoundShip Micro hosts a whole lot of connectivity options including Micro USB for Android, BlueTooth and an AUX Line in, such options allow this speaker to be used with any device, not just Android ones.

OTONE Audio’s managing director, Gareth Thomas, said: “Demand for technology that people can use on the go is rapidly increasing. Busy lifestyles make it necessary for people to own handy accessories that fit in with their day-to-day routine.

The speaker is competitively priced against similar speakers with a price point of £99.99 available from OTONE’s website and also comes with a carrying case in the box. If you’re interested in this product but want a bit more functionality like music controls or a one line display, take a look at the Soundship which is listed as “coming soon” on the website and will retail for £179.99.

I’m excited to try the Soundship Micro out in the near future so stay tuned for hands on coverage and possibly a full review.

    Great introduction to this product, these speakers look really good and I hope to see review and in depth review. You made great article. Great job, I really like these speakers and they would have been great in summer. Maybe next year though. This was informational and great to read. Will be waiting for review and first look 🙂

    Great article Purav. I am loving that sleek spaceship design they have and the fact you can use Bluetooth or AUX to connect other devices other than Android with microUSB makes it a win-win in my book. 😀

  • Sebastian

  • Yahya
