There are many portable Bluetooth speakers in the market, but the problem is, it’s difficult to find one that best you looking for. Most consumers prefer speakers sounds great, durable design with good features and also put up with constant use. In to the market, many of them not sound good enough for a party, especially if you’re looking for some impressive bass. The ‘Aiwa Exos-9’ not only sounds impressive but has a long life powerful battery, Bluetooth range is longer than average and it consists of a graphic equalizer which is not usually found on portable Bluetooth speakers.
All Bluetooth speakers are not perfume equally, but it’s not an easy job to a selection of choices and finds out the perfect sound system for your home. It’s also not a decision you want to rush into, as a great sound effect to your social gathering can really make the party. The best thing about a Bluetooth speaker system is that you can truly mix things up by playing music not only from your own collection but also from the collections of your friends and family via their smartphones. The days are gone when we had to tune our favorite music through our CD collection while the party suffered through embarrassing silence as we made the change from one CD to another.
If you’re willing to spend a little bit of money the ‘Aiwa Exos-9 Bluetooth speaker’ system is one that you definitely should be considering. The Exos-9 is a powerful speaker that can hold its own counter to some of the best home stereo systems.
DESIGN AND BUILD QUALITY:
This Aiwa Exos-9 review will broadly present its design and build quality. As per size, the Exos-9 is one of the larger portable speakers in the market, it weighs a mere 13 pounds which makes it quite portable to carry around. It has a mostly a plastic structure with a metal removable grill on the front. Exos-9 has 5 drivers which include: two 1″ silk tweeter, two 3″ neodymium midrange drivers and one 6.5″ dual voice coil woofer on the front.
It with the included 57.2 Wh lithium-ion battery pack which is removable and replaceable. Due to this battery is replaceable, you can purchase additional batteries to use as backups. For example, if you wanted to take this to an all-day program even where you’ll be using it for more than 8 hours, you may carry an extra battery pack. So instead of running out of power and having to wait for it to recharge, you can just swap out the dead battery and recharge it (if you’re able) while you put in the replacement.
On the back side, it has the bass reflex port and the removable 57.2 Wh lithium-ion battery is placed there as well. The Bluetooth battery is a 6-cell Lithium-ion, 15,600mAh (22V) and 110-240V compatible.
Also, at the back, in the bottom right corner you will find the power on and off switch, the power input, the auxiliary input which allows you to connect this to devices that don’t have Bluetooth connectivity, a USB input for charging the battery and a micro USB port for keeping posted the firmware.
There is a blue led display that lights up when you first turn it on which placed on the front. It has a battery life indicator, an EQ indicator, and a Bluetooth connection indicator too. There is also a manually adjust the volume knob.
On the top of the Exos-9 speaker, there is a touch-sensitive monitor which has a play/pause button and adjustable the EQ settings. There is one of the extraordinary features of any stereo system is the graphic equalizer, but most Bluetooth speakers don’t have this type of functionality. For this reason, you will be somewhat excited to find out that this speaker does. The Aiwa Exos-9 has a 5-band equalizer with four presets. Every song has its own specific tones; with a built-in equalizer, you can always make adjustments as your music plays to outfit any particular song.
You will be excited by a powerful speaker system, even if you don’t outright admit it. The Exos-9 has a powerful bass produced by 200W of fresh sound that will bring any party to life. The Exos-9 has another attractive thing around is that you are capable to link up two Exos-9s easily to provide one or the other stereo separated (left and right) or dual stereo sound for extreme sound performance. There is a touch adjustable “Link” button which will allow you to link to another Exos-9 unit. There is also a near-field communication sensor which allows you to easily connect to Android devices.
The interface works ok but sometimes you have to push the buttons a few times or push them a little firmer to get them to respond. Overall it has a solid feel and construction to it.
You will get a clear idea about sound performance through this Aiwa Exos-9 review. The sound quality is unquestionably one of the strengths of a speaker. The sound from the Exos-9 is exceptionally loud and hard to believe. This Bluetooth speaker is designed to literally rock a party with a massive 200W of pure audio authority. The Exos-9 speaker produces the punchy bass, powerful and clear dynamic sound, and never muddy. Whether you’re listening to its sound at a lower or louder volume, it sounds really nice and crisp, though it depends on how the sound recorded. Generally, we would refer to the sound signature as more of a “party” sound as contrasting to being more neutral and natural.
The amount of bass this comes out is some of the best we have ever heard in a portable Bluetooth speaker. At the maximum level of volume, the Exos-9 can truly vibration your house and the sound does not misrepresent even in the minor, which is truly impressive for a battery powered speaker. As a matter of fact, many portable speakers can’t come close to the Exos-9 speaker to produce the same level of impressive huge bass. The separation of music on this speaker is fantastic and you can really hear the instruments and refined notes in the music. The bass doesn’t misrepresent, that’s impressive is even turning this up all the way. Any modern categories of music like dance, electronic, rap, hip-hop and standard music all sounds really nice and clear.
The mids and highs volume of the Exos-9 speaker also have sufficient clarity to make music really enjoyable to listen to. Though its sound slightly highlighted, the mids are still natural enough to create a very attractive sound. Voices don’t sound too restrained but the extra bass emphasis can make female voices sound slightly jam-packed than a more neutral or natural sound signature. The benefit of this type of sound signature is that you can crank the volume and not have to worry as much about very tiring your ears. You can also customize through 4 available pre-sets or fine tune the EQ settings for almost every genre of music and adjust the bass, midrange or treble settings.
Its 6 internal acoustic drivers that uphold a sense of balance between the highs and the midrange, keeping them present in-depth which produce extraordinary sound and that’s why Exos-9 become special. It also enhances the bass response and creates a sonic low-end with its 6.5” inch dual-coil subwoofer that makes your music exactly jump out of the speaker. The conclusion result is the impressive sound performance that makes the Exos-9 suitable for home-theatre setups to provide cinematic sound. We were truly impressed with the nice clear sound performance of this wireless speaker.
You may get a similar sound effect from pairing two ‘the Sonos Play:5′ with a ‘Sonos SUB’, but that combined speakers are expensive. The Exos-9 sounds that will give you full of satisfaction. It’s also principally effective in a party type atmospheres or for home-theatre setups.
We are trying to clarify all features in this Aiwa Exos-9 review. Regarding the Exos-9 features, you can use this through connecting in Bluetooth mode or an auxiliary cable.
The Bluetooth connection uses an APTX codec (for a cleaner signal) and has an impressive 50-feet of range. Usually, the average Bluetooth speakers have 30-feet of a range than most. The Exos-9 Bluetooth connection range is close to double than the average Bluetooth speakers. The Exos-9 pairs easily with any Bluetooth device and the connection halts strong without breaks or drops in the signal.
There is a 5 band EQ in the Exos-9 that can be turned on or off which permits you to adjust the sound to you prefer. It also includes 5 presents to save your adjusted favorite EQ settings. You will find here a “Save” mode which allows you to play music without using the subwoofer. Save mode allows you to save battery life by not using the subwoofer and helps it to last longer. Save mode sounds also great, just doesn’t have as much bass.
Finally, the Exos-9 has a very good option is that called “Link Play” which will simply connect a second Exos-9 wirelessly. This two speaker’s connection works really well and provides you the options of using each speaker as a left and right channel or the second unit can just a mirror of the first one.
On this entire way, using this feature affectedly increases the prospective volume and works really well at settings like an outdoor party or a big hall room gathering where it sounds massive and better like the sound coming from two different locations. You can connect via Bluetooth with aptX and A2DP support to your iPhone, iPad, any Android device, any Set on fire tablet, Windows device, PC, or Mac. Android NFC also supported. 3.5mm audio jack for direct connection.
