A (s)Urge of Bluetooth Speakers & Keyboards

It makes you sad to walk by those houses where they keep their keyboards and speakers tethered to some old desktop all day. Because that's not your style. You let your speakers and keyboards RUN FREE, "tied" only to a Bluetooth signal! Well, we applaud you! We applaud you very much!

They hide the thickness in those pics... I want to see a profile of it shut. Looks like a HUGE keyboard.

I wonder if this will work with a Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0.

Hi! The device is NOT supported for the Galaxy Tab 7. However, the keyboard is compatible with all bluetooth 2.0 enabled devices. So while we do not guarantee that the Tab 7 will fit into the folio with all buttons and such in the right places, the keyboard should work.

Hello it for a iPud which is a 9-10" device

Yes the keyboard should work fine but the tab
will not fit securely... another 9-10 inch might but not a 7

Anyone who previously bought the URGE Basics Sound Brick have anything to say about it? I'm thinking for use in the car - sound quality has gotten good reviews in past woots (and Amazon), but I'm curious as to overall volume. I know it's not likely to fill as much space as the car stereo, but will it be frustrating to use it this way? Thanks in advance!

so i bought this cuz i wanted some extra volume for my music while in the shower. now cant say ive tried this in my car, but more than sufficient for playing over the noise of a shower. so could work. id recommend the sound brick. great bluetooth speaker for 30 bucks.

Thanks, poisonfreeg! It sounds like it might work - since my car is a small truck, it's not like there's a lot of upholstery to dampen the sound, though there's not much tile, it's also a lot smaller than the average bathroom.

I got the keyboard last time only to realize it wasn't a mini keyboard but a keyboard for the ipad mini.

Through mostly obstinacy I ended up getting the galaxy tab 2 7" from woot a week or two later- it fits great, problem solved.

Fwiw, ipad mini specs (I.e. any similar size tablet with bluetooth 2.0 should work)
Height:
7.87 inches (200 mm)
Width:
5.3 inches (134.7 mm)
Depth:
0.28 inch (7.2 mm)

Closed, the folio is about 1.5" thick.

I'll see if we can make it more clear in the Features that it's for the iPad mini.

I've purchased the Bluetooth speakers the last time they were offered and am very pleased with the sound quality of the music played over Bluetooth and the Aux connection on the back. Included is an Aux. cable and Micro USB to USB cable for charging the unit from your computer or an in wall USB unit. I have not tried the speaker phone capabilities yet, but for $30 the speaker is a steal and works surprisingly well.

I would definitely suggest checking them out for a portable wireless speaker system.

I used mine in my car. It's ok if you place it right near you but not really loud. Didn't get a chance to try the hands free phone feature before it broke on me and I had to send it back in on my dime.

Funny how everyone got a tablet because it was cooler than a laptop, then they come up with accessories to turn it into a laptop.

Except it's a laptop that won't run actual software and has a keyboard that's too small to use comfortably.

I use mine all the time in my apartment and never have trouble hearing it even for small social gatherings. Maybe yours was a defective unit, so I guess can't really attest to the company's consistency or the units reliability. I'll let you guys know if/when it breaks.

Who got one because it was cooler? I have a desk top, a laptop, and three tablets (android 4.0, Ipad2 and iPad mini) and I use it the ipads the most out of all of them. As I type, I'm burning calories on my StarTrac eliptical machine, something I would not be able to do with a laptop. My dad has a desktop (and just got a new iMac), but he uses his iPad a thousand times more than the desktops, because it does everything he needs and it's the most convenient to use.

Anybody have anything to say in regards to how this speaker compares to a Jambox?

Urge BT Speaker mini review - OK, not such a mini review, but here goes...good sound quality and volume. Decent pairing with Android phone. Hands-free feature may not be great since a few friends acted as if the mic was not sensitive enough and the volume of the call was noticeably lower than the music audio that had just paused. Overall for music playback, this is a great deal with good quality, especially appreciated a decent bass response. Would be more than enough volume to put on a counter when hanging out, kicking a few tunes or in the office playing at low volumes behind closed doors. Great bang for the buck. My only knock is the blue light that flashes behind the grill. I will be finding a screwdriver, opening, and taping over it since there's an audible beep when it's pairing/paired.

It compares very well to the Jambox. I have both, and this one sounds 99% as good as the Jambox.

the sound bar was small then i expected. sounds great and has nice bass. First bad thing i noticed about it was distortion at high volumes with my phone. if the phones volume was up high and the sound bar was almost maxed you could hear some nasty distortion. but if the phone was at 50%-70% volume it wasn't too bad. not something to get for blasting music but great for just having some music in the background while in the garage or out at the beach/camping
