great bit of kit!
i bought one for camping last year. charge lasts for ages and suprisingly loud for its size!
its about the same size as a jumbo redbull can!

has a direct input too, for players without blutooth..
twist the end for volume also works as hands free!

only gripe is if you knock it is crackles think build quality lacks in some areas


however overall for the price a great bit of kit! comes with pouch and usb charger
take it with you anywhere and cheap enuf to not worry to much about it getting knocked about.

hot one!

LOVE IT!!! posted my opinions on other posts buy it its fab!

I got this for just under a tenner last year from The Hut, so if you're willing to wait I can see this possibly getting cheaper.
#8
Still use mine from the last time Play done this deal. Was under a tenner then though. The crackling is the crap speaker cable, use your own and it's fine. Bluetooth facility on it is excellent, so's the sound quality. sound deal.
#9
Looks just the job to take away on those one night cheap hotel deals so you can listen to music as you drink the bottle(s) of wine you brought with you to save paying exorbitant hotel prices :-D
Ordered one thanks.
Voted hot.

#11
Damn i bought one from amazon, will they price match? or can i return back ill prolly get stung on the return postage :(
#12
i dont believe amazon has just reduced it as well, surely i can get the difference back?
#13
You may have a faulty one as mine doesn't crackle when you knock it.

Edit:This was supposed to be a reply to the first post.

To repeat what I said in the previous offer, I really rate these. I bought one for myself about a year ago, and have since bought 5 for friends and family. I wrote up my experiences on my blog if people want more info: http://www.techloving.net/2010/04/linx-b-tube-portable-a2dp-bluetooth-mp3.html.

And I paid more than this for them, so this is an absolute steal.

is this stereo?
#16
This looks awesome.. have ordered one to give it a try out.

Heat added

Amazing little gadget, bought for under a tenner last year. Loved it and bought another one.

I'd be tempted to hold out for the price to drop though.
#18
I have one too and they're excellent.

Just a note if you're planning on using it with bluetooth: I think your device needs
to work with A2DP, a couple of years ago not everything did.

About the McDonalds voucher; do you have to buy a McDonalds?
#20
Brand new
is this stereo?

I've always assumed so as there's a speaker at each end. They are so close together that it's pretty impossible to tell though.
#21
As I found out after I bought this, the passcode for the Bluetooth pairing is "1234" rather than the usual "0000".

I had a Bluetooth audio sender with the standard passcode of "0000", which won't connect to this, and I'm struggling to find a cheap Bluetooth audio transmitter with the "1234" passcode to hook up to B-Tube.

Any suggestions any1?
#22
is this better sound quality than the X Mini

can anyone tell me if these work with the ps3?

Thanks

I have managed to pair mine so they do work, but I have never tried it in an actual game. There was loads of squeaky feedback on the PS3 testing page where it plays the sounds it receives through the speakers, but I dont think this would happen in a game. I would have thought a proper headset would work much better though.

I got this for a simimar price a few months back. I didnt like it so tried unsuccessfully to sell it on Ebay soon after. Its now collecting dust in my "junk" drawer
A few negative points...
The charger is a non standard USB cable, so to charge it you will need to carry the cable around with you.
The volume and on off "buttons" are located at each side of the unit (they are the rings that run around each end of the speakers), and they feel cheap and nasty when used.
If using the line in, the power comes on automatically when the line in is connected, so if you are using this you will need to unplug it when not in use or the battery will run out.
The sound is pretty awful. Maybe you can let it off for its small size, but its still awful in my opinion.
#25
got one of these cheap a while back and found it awful with my nokia phone.

It wouldn't buffer music properly and has interference, was going to send it back but it feel behind the sofa and it's probably still there :)
