Nice little stocking filler - other sites (Amazon etc) typically have this for sale at the full RRP at the moment and the reviews on Revoo give it 9.2/10 and the 210 Google reviews give it 4.5/5 stars.

Apple and Android compatible.

According to Camelcamelcamel it's only ever been as low as £7.93 through a 3rd party, £14.79 supplied through Amazon.

If you want it for a few pennies cheaper then don't forget possible 1.5% cashback through Quidco.

My order is being processed and it's saying I should expect delivery by Tuesday 27th November so, yeah, only a few extra days to wait

Ive got this and the x-minii (cant remember if its the I or II) and this has better sound quality in my opinion but is considerably bigger and heavier. There's a bit of vibration that comes through the lid of the x-mini at certain volumes/frequencies which is a little irritating.

The x-mini is rechargeable and this running on AAA's so it's whatever suits you best.

There are some other cheap speakers on that site too, £3.97, £2.97. Never new speakers were that cheap. Wished this had volume control.

Good price, but the fact that you need 3AAA's is bit off putting. I personally prefer something with inbuilt rechargeable battery. Nevertheless, heated...

Shame not Bluetooth, otherwise would of had it.

I've absolutely no idea what it is nor wether or not it is a good price but I bought one anyway.

Well, you can sell them on eBay for the best part of a tenner plus p&p, so buy a few more and the one you keep will be free

got one of these - for less than a fiver its an awesome deal. HOT POTATOS !

Don't forget TCB

Awesome bit of kit - had one for a while and still cant believe so much sound can come from something so small ,,, absolute steal at this price

Good deal. Good little speaker. Though let it run in for a day or so to hear them at their best. I was disappointed at first, but then impressed later on.

I like to watch Iplayer on my tablet whilst cooking, but my tablet speakers aren't loud enough- would these be loud enough? How loud can they really be seeing as they're so small?

Good price but i would go for x-minis as they are rechargeable and you can have a chain of them together for super loud sound and good bass

The reviews on Amazon are positive about the volume (which is controlled by your device, not the speakers, with one saying it will fill a 6m x 3m room, etc but will distort if you have your device set at full volume.

Shows as £19.99 when added to the basket.

Yeah, looks like they've wised-up and put it back to full price.

thanks for the replies- too bad these have gone up in price, you can never afford to hesitate on any deals on HUKD once they get hot!

The X-Mini is just trash compared to this. Paid £18 for mine over a year ago and it's great. Can easily fill a small room or provide some music camping etc.
£5 was a bargain :P

Useless, invest in an xmini you will not complain.

Gutted. Was just going to order 2 but theyre back up to full price

Haha lol, it's just a ploy to get you to the site. You will receive an email in 2 or 3 days telling you sorry the item is discontinued! Lol
Pcworld & dixons do it all the time!

Sorry suckers:)

Glad I made up my mind to get one before the price went up

sure they had these in store about a week and a half ago for the same price

Thanks, I bought one of these just before the price went up. I was tempted to hold off until I found the price of the Amazon x mini which was part of the black friday deals, but decided to go ahead anyway. Glad I did given that the Amazon special offer price is about £2 cheaper than a non black friday deal!

Hope they honour the price

If you missed this, my local Tesco (Ayr) had 5 of them on the clearance shelf at £10 last night

This is a nice little unit with good bass & impressive clarity of sound and this is a stupidly low price for it. Only downside is lack of a padded carry case which makes damage fairly likely unless you don't travel with it ! Heat added :-)

have received my order confirmation, despatch notice and postal tracking number.

Me too, whose the sucker chalky46 lol

Just got mine, very pleased with the sound - more than adequate for what I want it for, shame it needs batteries that's the only complaint

I got the USB powered version. Downside is it requires a computer/laptop to play music.

Got mine too.

Received mine earlier this week - many thanks to the OP. Good sound and I'm glad I went for this instead of waiting for the black friday deal on Amazon.
