Code - IMFRESH17

Not as powerful as the reunion set that was £59ish last week, but they are all OOS now. These ones look like a good option too though. They work out £35.99 delivered once you add the code above.

Wireless range is 10m and they're pretty dinky (140 x 100 x 188 mm)
They are still £60 on Amazon and have been for a while.

What is the general sound like?

Recently built a log cabin and want less clutter (no wires) as possible in there. But will spend a bit of time working in there and want good sound.

Have a read of the amazon reviews. Click here

At £35 they're not much more than an average bluetooth speaker, and will have far superior sound.

I did the same on the Reunion set, whoops!

Thanks OP, ordered

Thanks OP, just ordered.

I really wish someone would make a pair of speakers like these, but that sent the sound to the other (passive) speaker via bluetooth.

I want a pair of speakers hooked up to my kitchen diner echo dot but due to room layout it'd sound way better with them either side of the room & there's a huge chimney breast in the way, & I really don't to chase the wall out for the sake of one speaker wire!

Still, this is a great deal. Have some heat.

Unfortunately none of those reviews are for these speakers as far as I can tell

Got a set of these a few days ago and decent for the money.

Good second speakers, using upstairs in a bedroom. Not the best bass, but you cant expect too much for the money. Nothing compared to my soundsticks I'm afraid, so they will be staying as my pc speakers, but again they were about twice the price.

Are these active or passive?

Does anyone know the delivery method? RMail Hermes etc? thx

NM looks like RM. Result. thx op

Do these not just have a power lead to one speaker? Allowing you to put the other one where you want without a cable? Looking at the back the second speaker I cant see any other connectivity required if running off BT.

Is a cable needed to connect the two together?

Also says on the blerb it bass and treble controls but I cant see them on the Accomplice! If anyone can confirm the two above queries Id be grateful.

The cable is needed to send the sound from one to the other. One is an active speaker (amplifier built in) & send the sound through to the other (passive) speaker.

Ahh ok bummer, thx for getting back, thought there was some sort of black magic going on, still cant see a connector on the second speaker other than the flappy red n black ones. is that what is used to connect the two?
(bluetooth speaker virgin)

Ordered anyway as was after a bluetooth set with proper stereo sound.

There's a thick black cable.

If you watch the video on the Amazon review you can see it.

I've found a pair of speakers that do transmit stereo sound via Bluetooth from one to the other but they're pretty pricey unfortunately.

Thx FFF, something I can live with, hope the cable is more than 2m!
Just a thought Re your situation, I read the new bluetooth protocol allows for more than one device to be connected at a time so maybe look into that as it would, if I understood it correctly, allow you to hook up two BT speakers to your phone/mediaplayer simultaneously. No need then for cables between the two speakers. Could be a good solution in your case.

You're right, my apologies. I should've read the reviews properly.

PLease excuse my ignorance. Are the controls on top of the speaker, or is that a remote control placed on top of the speaker?

It has both controls on the top and a remote.

Ah interesting. I think I'll go for it then. Thanks for the help

These will do nicely for my office - ordered! 🔥 thanks!

For info the speakers are connected only by normal thin red and black speaker cable, but its quite short. The power supply cable is also quite short.

Also, doesn't have a remote that's mentioned above, you just use your phone of course or the controls on top of the active speaker.

Whoops. I stand corrected.

I received the speakers today. The box is missing the PSU, Aux and connecting cables. The speakers were also not in their original plastic shipping bags which were jammed into the bottom of the box. I'm not impressed, I've logged a support ticket on their website, I'll post an update when I get a response.

Sorry to hear that, luckily I decided to cancel order and receive full refund the other day!

got mine today. not impressed with the sound ( 1 driver no tweeters) my TV sounds much better with the built in speakers.
Connected them ok to my phone no probs. But when connected to my TV i have no control over the volume, I need to get up and manually turn volume up or down..... cant control the volume with my TV remote.
Sending them back.

One driver?! Oh ffs I wondered this when not seeing any photos with the covers off. Opted for these over a smaller bt speaker hoping they would be better. Mine at the PO so we see tommorrow.

going back

Are you sure your TV doesn't have a setting that allows you to choose between either fixed or variable level audio output? Mine does.

I've got an RMA for the missing accessories, so they're going back.

Ordered after reading the Amazon reviews, then tried to cancel when I saw that they weren't for the same product.
Just got a dispatched notice
Not happy

Just refuse delivery when you answer the door, just ask them to send it back, it's your right under 7day online shopping laws, you will receive refund after it's returned!

I think they are decent enough for the money, depends what you are expecting/comparing to of course.

Hi-Fi they are not but for £36 for use in the kitchen or bedroom for a bit of music or podcast, which is why I bought them, they are fine. To use with the tv for movies Id say not good enough to add to the experience. Better than the small BT speakers for similar money though imo.

If anyone has any other options at this price point Id be interested to hear about it.

Mine finally arrived today and, after a few hours use, I'm not quite sure what people are upset about.

If you were expecting KEF or B&W quality for your money, then you can only blame yourself.

BTW, my brother in law has a pair of B&W bookshelf speakers with just a single driver in each and the range and quality beggars belief.

Out of the box these sounded a bit flat but a few minutes fiddling with the sound properties on my PC and the sound was transformed. Certainly good enough to warrant the price I paid, and they'll double up nicely as an output for the HD projector for movie nights.

I'm happy with them, assuming they last.

I guess my thought would be - are they as good or better than the same-priced Logitech PC speakers?

I had those (or very similar) in a 2.1 kit with a sub. The Kitsound set are easily just as good, but obviously couldn't complete at the low end with a 10" sub woofer

Not heard the logitech first hand but my guess would be the kitsound would be worth the extra, good bass (they have the bass hole at the bottom of the speaker), bluetooth connectivity and 10w more power.
