The new Xiaomi Mi Speaker 2 is no exception. The Xiaomi Mi speaker 2 is a beautifully cylindrical designed speaker which is equipped with Bluetooth 4.1 and offers an insane 7 hours of battery backup. The best thing is that you can get this for just $20 which is a great price considering the quality of output from this compact device. So now let’s check out is it worth buying or not.
Inside the box we will get the Xiaomi Mi Speaker 2, a rubber band to keep the controls from the spinning and a Chinese instruction manual. Xiaomi didn’t included a micro USB cable for charging as it feels like an inclusion that really should be in the box.

Build and design:
Xiaomi’s latest bluetooth speakers post a brand new cylindrical design. it’s a sleek matte finish to you with the speaker located on the top of the unit. These speakers are available in two different colors that is black and white. At the front of the unit you will find a small dual color path LED and the rear has a microUSB port for charging. But most shockingly there is not a single button over the speakers.
The top of the unit is actually the controls. it’s one of the most minimalist yet elegant control system. Pressing and holding down the top will turn the speaker on or pause the current track if you are already listening to a music. Turning the top section controls the volume and the entire unit feels incredibly well made and fun to use. Parting of the speaker is done by holding down the top of the unit for few seconds. The device automatically jumps into the pairing mode.
The size of the speaker is actually quite compact and metal feels good to hold. The build quality of the speaker is stellar with everything working perfectly including its style.
Xiaomi’s products are known for its top-notch quality and the same applies to the Xiaomi Mi Speaker 2 too. This handy little cylindrical device produces enough sound to give tough competition to the number of cheap portable speakers in the market today. It is loud enough to keep everyone in the room in tune with the music but being loud isn’t enough.
Paring is a matter of selecting the device in your phone’s bluetooth menu. The speaker’s name is all in Chinese but it should be easy enough to figure out which one it is. The quality of sound output is impressive considering its super compact factor. The output is clear but the bass is not as good as I expected. It’s pretty decent but I feel the lows could have been better.
As for the better life I could easily get over seven hours of music playback on a single charge which was impressive. It does not have to be continuous. You can listen for few hours, one day and switch it off. And you will get a few more hours the next day.
